How to be Desk Diva: Workstations so pretty that even instagram will beg for these!

Call me random if you may, random is fun don’t you agree? Predictable is boring. Wait. i don’t want to keep on blabbering thoughts straight out from my head. But isn’t this blog about that? Ok. Stop. Focus.

Hello, again! I’ve got some mid week motivation for you. So this is what happens, when i zone off to my wishful thinking and daydreaming. I pinterest for hours and hours and dream about the perfect spaces and places. Some that we can create ourselves, and some in the world that are too pretty and they keep getting added on to my ‘must visit’ list. BTW, if you do not have a ‘must visit’ list yet, you need some serious dose of pinterest in your life. Getting back to our midweek motivation, I have always been the kind of person that needs ambience to do anything right. Like when I was choosing which Zumba class to join, i picked the one with club lights on the ceiling and music so loud that it makes you feel like a party! Also, when I sat down to study in school days, i needed loads of books and cute stationery and preferably a couple of friends or siblings studying around me to really feel like doing my homework for the day.

Keeping all that ambience-requirement in mind, you’ll wonder what sort of a desk you must have to do some creative writing, and posting, and most importantly- instagramming. I mean no desk is good enough, if you can’t instagram it. Posting below are my favourite desks and workstations from pinterest and google, around the world that have given me serious #deskgoals.

Absolute Must Haves to be an ultimate Desk Diva:

  1. Pictures: Obvio, you need happy vacationing pictures of you, family, friends and your bae, to constantly remind of why you need to work hard so you can take a nice long break soon!
  2. Pin board: To put up tickets, bills, cute notes, reminders, and everything else
  3. Theme: I personally really like the tiffany themed desk, you should have a theme and work around it.
  4. More White: You see how pretty the pictures look, the more white they have? imagine how awesome it will be in reality?
  5. Minimal: Less is more, keep the furniture chic and inspired by a fashion magazine office!
  6. Great Drapes: No office space is complete without pretty curtains, choose the right colours, prints and patterns to make your space.
  7. Ultra Cute Stationery: Raid those chinese cute ass stores, hoard on hello kitty and mc donalds toys, add some quirky notebooks with insanely pretty sometimes unusable items on the desk. Anything to keep us inspired to work na?
  8. Fresh Flowers: to add that daily fresh happy quotient.
  9. Fairy Lights: Nothing is cute without fairy lights. enough said.
  10. Planner/Organiser/ Calendar: After all it is a work space, busy bees like us need to mark our dates right 😛

Desks that overlook a window or a nice landscape keep your mind calm and you more dreamy. If this does not inspire you to be a desk diva, i don’t know what will. Are you thinking of your desk make over already? Tell me tell me. Jugni awaits 🙂

Look Hot, even when you’re sick!

With the recent weather change you are bound to catch the dreaded flu, Many celebrities state their lips look fuller, when they are sick to the core! The drunken eyes and the constant haze you feel around you might be working in your favor sometimes?

Deeper voice

There’s a Friends episode where Phoebe gets a cold and likes her new husky voice so much that she tries to stay sick forever. Not cool when you lean into a hottie at a pub!

Rosy complexion
Yes, you’re running a fever. But think of all that money you’re saving on blush! Naa not really, but some moisturizer and cute woolens can do the trick!

Losing weight

If you can’t keep food down, you can’t keep your weight up. you’ll lose that weight and it’s not the good one, you will feel weaker by the day!

Mystery
Everyone will be dying to know about your recent disappearance from the social scene. Tell them you got a nose job! Or went to rehab!

NO

Maybe you can just follow the following steps and not disappear, constant updates are considered more reliable than such kinds who disappear without a notice! Ok, so, on a serious note. The season has too many outings, travel plans, monsoon sales on the line up, you can’t lie in bed and crib about the head ache while blowing your nose!

Grab some medicines and try these 7 tips.

1. If the chills and aches are too scary to make you stand under a shower ditch it, get a dry shampoo. The product though not entirely magical takes care of the basic oily scalp and leaves you with hair that is manageable and pretty.

2. Stay hydrated inside out, tons of moisturiser is the only way the world will not get to know your current relationship with tissue papers! Drink lots of fluids, as cliché as it sounds you the feeling of hot water/green tea or chicken soup going down your sore throat is divine! Indulge in all of those fluids.

3. Don’t even think about using a compact or powdered make up, it will fill your face cracks and make you look craptastic! Try mixing your regular liquid foundation with a little baby lotion or cold cream and then apply evenly.

4. For those constantly doped looking eyes try some tears plus or refresh tears eye drops. They instantly get rid of the redness and also have a cooling effect on the burning lids! Skipping the TV session or facebooking on the laptops will help calm the eyes too.

5. Your lips will look like you have been eating some kind of atta, go crazy with the Vaseline/lip balm regime. Remember Gauhar Khan in big boss, there is never a scene where she is not applying some more lip balm!

6. Add some pop! Thanks to the cold/flu you look washed out, ditch the powder blush and turn to creamy blushes or cheek and lip tints. Put on a cute peach or coral shade to continue looking adorable even when you are unwell.

7. Drink water all the time to kill that breath. Also try a halls or a vicks which not only helps clear the throat but also keeps the bad breath away for at-least a couple of hours. Enough time to attend a party without letting anyone know you’re unwell.

If you’re sick, go pretty. Do it Jugni style!

How to have a fully equipped handbag!

There are these times when someone needs something so desperately, something they forgot at home in a hurry, something they’ll borrow in that moment but forget to carry it all time! To avoid those moments at ‘Jugni & Co’ we researched on the top 10 must haves in a hand bag.

Besides the basic wallet, hairbrush, keys, cellphone here is a list of the Top 10 essentials in your handbag.

Hand Sanitizer & Moisturizer : Its never a bad time to kill those germs on your hands accumulated from shaking hands, exchanging money, opening doors and other routine things. It’s a quick alternative to hand washing with soap, similarly it can also leave your hands dry which is why you should carry a moisturizing lotion as well. A moisturiser also ensures whatever they weather maybe your hands and face are always supple and soft.

Pen: Besides the whole cool angle of always carrying a signature pen like big shot businessmen (Mont blanc, Parker, Cross etc) Its always a good idea to have a writing instrument handy, to jot down an impromptu shopping list, a secret note for someone or something you heard and don’t wanna forget!

Safety Pins & Band aid: A wardrobe malfunction will not come with a pre announcement, safety pins are a rescue mission to save you from any kind of embarrassment, it can also repair a bracelet or help you increase the length of your neckpiece! With pointy pokey things surrounding us, it wouldn’t hurt to carry a bandaid. It can make you a fairy for a kid with bruised knees who you can save some day! (just saying)

Body Splash/Deo/Mini perfume: The weather in our country is pretty unpredictable, it kills to not smell good at any time of the day… A deodorant/body splash/mini perfume can make you that girl who always smells so good at work, in college or just about any where.

Mouth Freshner: Mint, Chewing gum, mouth freshening spray is an amazing investment. When your palate just feels dry or to kill one of those sweet cravings pop in a mouth freshner. Also when you plan to get close to someone, a fresh breath can be a kickstart!

Accesories: This might sound weird but i always have a nice pair of earrings and a big cocktail ring in my bag. Classy hoops or coloured studs can keep you prepared for an unplanned outing where you can look dressy with these simple add ons!

Earphones: Sometimes all we need to shut out our million inner voices is some good music, it is stress relieving and mood lifting! Carry earphones at all times to tune into your favourite music and tune out the rest of the world. It also makes sense to speak on headphones while driving!

Sunglasses: Never leave the home without a sexy pair of shades. The moment you put on your glares, the brain understands “Babe mode Activated” and gives you a crazy boost also adds a glam factor to your look apart from saving your eyes from the sun!

Makeup Kit: Your quick fix and your best friend is your carry along make up kit. (what goes in a perfect makeup kit we’ll tell you soon)

MIRROR: The last but most important thing in your handbag is a magnifying mirror, they come in cute prints at accessorize and other such stores. You can make sure your hair and makeup is perfect and also do a quick check on your teeth! As they all say, a mirror never lies. There is never a wrong time for some self admiration too i say!

Whether its a tote, a clutch, a sling bag or any other swear not to leave home without at least 6 of the above!

How-to Jugni's Take

Movie Inspired Daily Dressing

Of all the “Get-the-look” articles you might be reading, we bet this is the one which is actually do-able! Each of us have our own dressing sense and all, yet there are some looks we know we can carry off too. For a refreshing change, for prettier pictures or simply cause we want to!

Here are some recent looks we think you must try out this season. In no particular order

Queen ki Rani:

We cannot get over how awesome Queen was, we can’t have the Paris trip but can look like her in our everyday and feel oh-so-vaction-y. The USP of Rani was her own comfort zone, her bag dint have to match her wardrobe. So let’s say if we were to do the Rani look we would stick to one staple sturdy bag preferable in a nude shade all month long. Let’s do kurta with jeans, let’s do pretty braids, let’s do blouses and georgette skirts. Also lets have that one attitude of wanting to learn, wanting to move on and discover yourself a little every day with every fight, every break up and every good pani poori session!
Add a little kiss with a stranger in that agenda and voila, you are Queen ki Rani 😉

2 States ki Ananya:

I could take my eyes off her when the reveal poster came out, the printed cotton skirt & the plain white tee with bangles and earrings just enough to get your attention and add to the whole look.
Run to the nearest FabIndia/Sabhyata/Cottons/The Bombay Store and pamper yourself with printed, flowy, perfect for summer waale skirts. Pair them with basic t-shirts or a short sleeveless cotton blouse. Not only will it add height to your frame it also gurantees a head turn each time you walk by. The elegance and the princess feeling that comes with it is priceless! Don’t forget to put on some oxidised bangles and jhumkis 

Bewakoofiyaan ki Myra

As fancy as her name, Myra inspires the apt work-chic look! High waist pencil skirts, smart collared tops/blouses, the cat eye glasses with just a good enough blend of summer dresses while on vacation and the hot pink bikini! Focusing on the work look we can adapt high waist trousers/skirts, blouses and shirts with t-shirts inside with the cat eye glasses look. It makes anyone look like they care at work. Care enough to dress well and obviously care about their work. Don’t forget small details like a watch, small earrings and good pair of shoes 

Gunday ki Nandita:

OK just before you think this is random, we think we all must do the classic bindi + winged eyeliner + printed saaree look whenever you get the first chance. If we take the look on regular days, the simple braids, bindi as well as the boho look with crop top and the ever so awesome head band is do-able.

Hasee toh phase ki Meeta:

The most comfortable look is here. The boyfriend dressing. Checked shirts, hoodies, plain t-shirts and simple tops if needed. Hack into your brothers’ wardrobe. Effortlessly chic she is, and this is one thing we can be every day. Wear converse, or chappals. As long as you are comfortable you are doing this right. You can also go one step ahead and use those boyfriend jeans with simple ganjis or t-backs. We could also pair a t-shirt with a checked shirt and hot shorts to maintain that girly element!

Parineeti-Style

While you jump on to getting your looks together, do not forget the attitude that came with each character. They all have their own style rules and they don’t change them just to fit in. No long length shorts for ananya, no hot-shot kapde for Rani in Amsterdam, no printed girly dresses for Meeta. Do these looks for a break from your routine style, send us a picture when you try one of these. And We’ll surprise you with a tiny gift in return!
