    A day in the life of Mr & Mrs Mewani. #JugniBaniMewani

    9 am riser Mrs. Mewani gets a leisurely hour to get out of bed, dress up & show up for daily chores in the sasuraal. Predictably; the first two weeks post-wedding involved her splashing water droplets from freshly washed hair before leaving the bedroom. 11 am on good days, Mr. Mewani forcefully is woken up after answering a minimum of 6 work calls in half-sleep-pretend-to-be-awake & at the desk. They meet for a quick exchange of coffee mugs & a smug at the dining table. Lunch has been packed & placed in the car, a rushing hug before he leaves, near the shoe rack outside the house is what she thrives on. 12…

    Shaadi In Progress. #LifeUpdate

    It truly is an everyday full-time job, the phrase work in progress just does not fit the bill. Waking up with to-do lists playing loudly in my head is only a feeling that’s coming in more frequently as days close into my D-Day. If you’re following me on social media, you know what’s been up. Yes, I’m getting married! As cliche as it might sound, I’m marrying my best friend, we’ve been together for the past decade, laughing endlessly and sharing details from each other’s relationships to college to office gossip. It was about time he popped the question when he did, I thought it was just one of his…

    This Pune based skin clinic infused WINE IN MY SKIN!!!

    There seems to be a new bubble forming for aesthetic skin care places in Pune, offering a plethora of services. Many of them, however, are purely catching on the bandwagon for the trendy-sake of it, or for the possible earning scope. Unlike any of these new age salons, comes The Wedding Clinic. A specialised Beauty, rejuvenation, skin care and healing place for those who are about to transform their whole life with an upcoming event in their lives. I loved how they have such a clear understanding of how brides, grooms and even their families feel while in the grind to plan the perfect D Day. I went in for…

    Fall Fashion reveal with Megha & Kalpesh!

    Although we don’t technically experience a fall or autumn. Fashion-wise, however, we must upgrade to the trends and hues of Fall! A collaboration with the super talented Megha & Kalpesh came in at the best time for me. As I work on a whole batch of wedding related posts for you guys, they were amidst launching a new collection of fall fashion. What better way to announce their new collection and do a fun formal wear post with Jugni? Shot at the majestic Regency Lagoon Resort, Rajkot. The emerald green of my Gown made me feel like a total Forest Princess. I have always been slightly sceptical of how a…

    Things to do in your first trip to Jaipur! #travelog

    Raja Rani ki kahaniyan, Rajasthan ! I have always dreamed about palaces, kings and queens, their love and wars!  Growing up I watched Lamhe with more excitement than most movies, and the life of Jodha in Jodha Akbar gave me a whole new set of goals. Pushkar, Ajmer & Jaipur has been on my list for a while now! Although I have been there with family years ago, this time was trip fully planned by me. so Yay! hyper exciting! Well, I can tell you excruciating detail the process, hows and wheres and whats, how about we skip to highlights? Plan a blessed visit to Ajmer, although slightly overwhelming the…

    Would a bride ditch the Red & go Black?

    Quite excited to announce a new section on the blog, details on that coming real soon. As of now, I’d say pick up some hints and tell me what you think it will be about? Monsoon & Weddings, the two words seem tough to use in the same wedding unless you are referring to the movie. but when I got down to some real research and sourcing I was having a tough time looking for bridal wear, the colours seem slightly restricted as soon as I decided to break away from the obvious reds, pinks etc. Going by the new-age bridal trends as well as keeping it classy and well…

    My own Elsa’s Gown. #MonsoonWeddingInspiration

    While I miss my summer wardrobe, and dream of cosy winters already. I was having trouble creating a fashion board for the ongoing season. You can swiftly move to culottes and skinny fit ankle length denim when it starts pouring, the struggle is occasional wear in the monsoon! The obvious choice was moving into blues, greens & aqua on the colour wheel, and then the biggest inspiration came up! Elsa, from Frozen. The gorgeous blue gown, those airy sleeves and that pretty drape, what part of it don’t we like? In my latest collaboration with Pune’s leading designer Seema Singh, I got a chance to pick an outfit that inspired…

    Beauty treatments that actually work! @BeautyWorks, Pune.

    To be honest, I never really have got a proper facial done. Clean-ups and home DIY packs are more my thing. But when The Beauty Works approached me with the almost magic like treatments I just had to know more! Coming from a household of malai-lagalo beta, and a Mum who’s skin is so blessed, we’ve by default been away from the botox & fillers and injections of the skin world. The Beauty Works’ owners and doctors sat me done and cleared my misconceptions about these topics. Like you don’t always need a facelift, and injection, a botox or a face surgery to look a certain way. Regular care and…

    Bold & Blue.

      While we have to attend certain parties, dine and wine at certain gatherings the heart would rather embrace its blue, pick up the heels and walk into the room. Yes, we’d put our make-up on, we’ll even look the way you would want, we’ll walk down that lobby and be there to party. But when all we’re feeling is blue, it will be hard for you to not notice too. Here’s to the nights that we regret the next day. Here’s to the champagne you didn’t like anyway. Here’s to being Bold when all you needed was to cry. Here’s to the gown that gave you the power to at…

    The guesthouse – a short story.

    Globex Corporation boasted about a handful number of achievements. In spite of being in a small town, they had everything just like in the big cities. The numbers, the technology and oh their full-service guesthouse. Every guest found an eerie connection with the guesthouse during their exit and swore to come back. Meera was determined to design her new home herself, the grand fleet of stairs, the master bedroom overlooking the living area, the kids’ room with clouds painted on the walls, and her beloved mandir. Magnificent, just like in an old Hindi film. Meera’s family was going to grow up in this house. The couple would sing songs on…
