Jugni's Take

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 medically backed salon services can help me achieve that celebrity like skin goal too.

Dr Nidhi & Nikhil Malhotra were kind enough to take me through their range of services that you can read more about on their website, they perform the Kardashian favourite Vampire Facial, to the still to be famous magical treatments for occasions as well as just good skin maintenance. They noted a lot of pointers regarding my eating habits, my current skincare regime and then came up with a custom made Medi-Facial for me. Unlike other skin treatment clinics, The Beautyworks makes a customised treatment plan as per each and every person’s need & requirement.

Owing to dehydration, my skin was suggested an oxygen blast, with a hydrating facial for sensitive skin. All in all the whole process took over and hour, where various tools, equipment, products were slathered on and cleaned off. Leaving my skin supple and fresh. Although there was no miracle effect immediately unlike other short term facials, this treatment kept my skin feeling this way for days after the medi-facial.

The technicians and doctor helped me create a new skincare regime and also prescribed the correct sunscreen, moisturiser and basic necessities to maintain te effects of the medi-facial.

For the first time in a long time, I now use a proper sunscreen, the right moisturiser and my skin feels as happy as ever, even without any trace of makeup.

Bringing sexy back, sorry had to say that. Well if you are too conscious to show skin, you can always opt for a nice bra-let that shows off cage straps on the back. Kiarah’s collection is handpicked and classified pieces that guarantee elegance. Check them out before they all run-out!

My favourite part you may ask? is that beautiful trail the dress has. Keeping in mind my height which does not let me enjoy maxi dresses or long pants, the fact that the length and the cape fell so well on my body got me super excited. Check them out order your princess dress soon 🙂

The top 3 Desi Looks you need to add to your wardrobe, If you haven’t already.

You can do denims, skirts and dresses but nothing slays like an authentic Indian/ traditional look. Whether you’re the only one going design in college or adapting these into a routine family gathering, these are the 3 must have looks you need to try asap!

Kurta- Pallazzos

If you haven’t guessed it yet, I am obsessed with palazzo pants, they make me look taller and give me a feeling of being the most elegantly dressed when in a crowd! The trend started early 2015 and looks like it’s here to stay. Mix and match with interesting prints and colours to create different looks. They are so comfortable and effortlessly stylishly you might consider ditching all other forms of bottoms completely!

Patiala Salwar:

Nothing says casual desi like patiala suits, they define easy, functional style to me. Especially after Tanu weds Manu, I see myself turning to a patiala suit more often than not these days.

Jugni Tip: You need to find the right tailor to give you a real patiala salwar, it’s not as easy as it looks to have those perfect pleats in a hot fit, you might have to struggle with a few trials. But I suggest don’t settle till you feel full punjabi kuddie. Also, preferably get one from the north! I got this beautiful fabric from Ahmedabad for as less as INR 90 per metre and the short fitted kurta made me feel like Alia Bhatt from Humpty Sharma! If you don’t have this set in your wardrobe you are certainly missing out on a classic.

Kurti- Leggings

This is a cheat salwar kameez, or a chudidar kurta’s modernised version. It’s available everywhere you go and is so easy to carry. All the big brands have made multiple styles of kurtas ready to buy for us. From the A-lines, to the straight fits, the asymmetrical to a simple slit one like this they can all add interesting elements in your wardrobe. The gungroo on this kurta made me buy it without a second thought, also, the chudidar sleeves are so pretty nai?

Jugni Tip: Since leggings are skin tight, the length of the kurta should be below knee length or it can look weird, also colours like beige or skin tone for a legging will make it look like you aren’t wearing any, so be careful!

Tee-Series: Styling a round neck t-shirt, again.

Taking cue from our last post in the same series that you can read here; I am still obsessing over the 3 uber cool doodled t-shirts that I got designed by The Filmy owl (Angel Bedi) from PosterGully.com

I was absolutely overwhelmed when so many of you sent me photos wearing the same t-shirts! Yay, blogger feel. Keeping the core thought the same, we cannot do with them can’t do without. Round neck basic t-shirts or chest print t-shirts are not just to work out or sleep in, they need to be worn out. You need to surprise yourself at how stylish you can make this wardrobe staple look. Watch and learn 😛

_DSC7577 _DSC7561 _DSC7547

It’s not difficult to understand when you add crisp white denims and heeled footwear you are definitely going strong on your style game. I have worn the same t-shirt with shorts as well as harem pants and I swear the whole look becomes unique with different shoes and pants. Also, makeup and accessories. The bag, shoes, red lips, earrings all add up to this look and makes it wearable to a dinner or evening wear.

Change how you wear a t-shirt, make a side knot and experiment._DSC7647

Use chest print t-shirts to communicate and express. I mean why not?_DSC7637

The Zara neckpiece and the striped skirt made me brunch ready, I could even go to a meeting looking like this. Would’nt you want to try?_DSC7636 _DSC7619

My Chumbak bag kept the look casual and chic, also flats for the win. So comfortable, I can shop all day sporting this look._DSC7615 _DSC7657

No style is fully complete without stunning glares and your signature pose. What are you waiting for, re-use those favourite t-shirts and send us some more tips to do the same! Stay Jugni.

#MaaKaWardrobe Here’s what you can do with that gorgeous silk saree.

When it comes to classic pieces, I find all my answers in Mumma’s wardrobe. From the most epic dupattas to authentic embroidery and fabrics that stay forever there is everything!

I have been eyeing Maa’s saree collection for the longest time, and when I finally got my hands on this one I knew I wanted to create magic with it. So, out of the many things you can do with your mom’s silk saree you can also convert it into a beautiful pleated skirt/lehenga. Just like you’ll see in the pictures below. This classic digital print, pure silk, gold and sea green piece is my Nani Maa’s treasure passed on to my mother and is now mine. By adding a pop of blue in a beautiful raw silk, I tried to put in a little life onto the colour which made me look a little pale when draped as a saree.

The saree has so much legacy attached to it, I almost feel like I’m wearing years of family style with each step in my new skirt. Crop top and skirt trend looks like it’s here to stay, hence it just fits well with fashion today created by a piece from the 60’s. What do you think of it? Do you have an old treasure from #MaaKaWardrobe that you would like to revamp? Write into us and let’s brainstorm together!

My designer suggested that we added removable layers of can-can in the skirt which made me feel like a total royalty, also, I can remove it and style it down as and when required! So cool! Designed by Ginni’s Studio.

Jugni's Take

Move over coconuts, eggs to the rescue! Mane Management Tip.

Recently while in a makeup workshop, the hair and makeup expert said that soon we will all be wearing hair extensions. In the US, she mentioned they are available over the counter at every store in the street! Yaeeks!

That got me thinking of this insane hair fall that I have been struggling with, so besides the methi and the curd packs, and the various treatments as well as home remedies I kept desperately waiting for something better. Then came in something i have not been able to put away, as I grew used to it!

Eyova. Have you heard of egg oil yet? Yes, eggs, they can make your mane fabulous too! I couldn’t keep the find just to myself, hence this review for all my lovelies!

Firstly, Since egg oil contains cholesterol, it helps the oil absorb into the outer layer of our scalp. It also stabilises and maintains the complex intercellular-skin matrix, allowing the skin a natural repair and rejuvenation. The cholesterol in eggs is an active element that helps moisturise dry hair strands. It helps heal and strengthen the hair by reducing frizz adding shine and smoothness to your hair. Being rich in sources of Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, egg oil contains EFA which is a very vital ingredient in the role of hair care. It helps in preventing poor scalp conditions which cause dandruff and hair loss, as per an article in the TOI.

Product Claims:

  • Prevents premature hair loss
  • Prevents premature hair greying
  • Eliminates dandruff
  • Repairs hair damage
  • Adds luster and shine to hair

What I think:

So I received this product in July, it mentions the need for it to be used for a minimum of four weeks for any results. So I did, but with the erratic monsoons, and the humid weather my hair still acted weird for about 3 weeks, as in I did not feel any big change in the texture or the hair fall. Still keeping at it, as the weather changed and my habit with the oiling continued, I could feel the magic in the product, my hair fall has not stopped miraculously but has definitely reduced. More than that, it’s the shine and luster that I can see on my mane! Less fizz, easy to manage and prettier for sure.

Thanks to Eyova, I now have a good habit, which my mom is very happy with. No more routine expenses on random hair treatments. No more egg white masks, which are smelly and messy and not easy to do on a routine. Healthy hair. I did apply the product twice a week, every week for about 8-9 weeks, kept it on overnight and did not use excessive shampoo. It is very easy to remove, which is one of my big concerns with coconut oil and especially castor oil. So I can shampoo without really murdering my hair shafts.

I highly recommend for you to try Eyova, read more about it www.eyova.com, go ahead and buy a bottle from here : http://shop.eyova.com/eshop/index.php/egg-oil/eyova-50-ml-india.html. You must also share this new and awesome find with all your friends who need hair care. Also, I really wanted to do a fancy photo shoot with mere lambe ghane baal, strong and shiny, and while using the product. But that would be a little too dramatic na? Isiliye, serious review. Jaldi kharido. Tell me how you like it. Will you use an egg oil?
