Breaking Norms..

I love how the new Tanishq and the Azva ads shows a new image of the bride, the real image of the bride.

I absolutely love the chubby cheeks of the Azva bride.

The Newly Wed's Guide to dressing for Karva Chauth.

My first Karva Chauth is coming up on Tuesday, and I am excited to wear my wedding lehenga again! I really hope it fits, there has been a lot of weight gain post wedding :(

My mom called up yesterday saying I need to get my Nosepin and Mang tikka too. I realized dressing up for Karva Chauth is almost like dressing up for your wedding. There are so many things you must have.

I am packing to go over to my mothers place, so here is the list of things:

1. Wedding Lehenga: Confused if you should wear it or something simpler?! Wear the lehenga! Its one of the few times you get to wear it. Wearing it the whole day would ofcourse be too tiresome so I would probably wear something light during the day and change into my lehenga near pooja time.

Karva Chauth Story

Festive seasons here and to all of us who got married within a year its our first Karva Chauth! So to those who don't know the story behind Karva Chauth here it is :

Long Long time ago....

It was Veeravati's first Karva Chauth, she was the youngest in seven brothers and one sister, she came to her mother's house to stay for the festival. (Like us newly weds will go)

 Her mother-in-law affectionately sent sargai for her. She put mehndi on her hands along with her mother and bhabhi's and did sargai in the morning before sunrise and kept her fast.

Karva Chauth Special: Tanishq's perfect app!

A few day ago my mother-in-law comes up to me and says "Acha beta Baya kay liye humarey yaha mathis raktey hai, teek hai, apni mummy ko bata dena"

"baya?!" I wondered.

My mother-in-law spends the next 15 minutes trying to explain how there have to be 6 glasses with mathis on top and a jug full of rice along with 2.5 clothes.

Now my MIL is extremely sweet and shy, she hates asking for anything, so by the end of it all I am super confused of what I have to give and what I have to get. Its decided in the end, that my mom and my mother-in-law will discuss it among themselves. *phew* problem solved!

It wasn't until I downloaded the Tanishq app that I really figured out what baya or Baayna really is.

Me and my mom are HUGE Tanishq fan, My bridal sets for all my wedding functions are from Tanishq so I know what the company stands for, and when I heard they had this Karva Chauth app I just had to check it out!

Trousseau Destination : Chhabra, Karol Bagh

I was introduced to this shop by my mother-in-law when we went trousseau shopping. We went there again recently to get my Karva chauth Saree (although I am wearing my wedding lehenga on Karva super excited to wear my lehenga again!! hope it fits!)

Both the times I saw really nice lehenga's and really cheap! (i.e. cheap in terms of bridal wear)

From Store to D-day

Ever wondered if the lehenga you brought would look ok on D-day? Was it a right purchase??

Here are things to do while going shopping for the main function outfits :

1. Put on some makeup.

2. Have your hair neat and tidy, and if you can, then tie it in a way you would want to on the function day.

3. Don't have a distracting nailpaint on. Clean nails or if you already know the color you want then that.

4. If your jewelry is decided then keep that in mind.

5. Once you are doing a trial, step as far away from the mirror and then see yourself.

And remember pictures on your camera phone don't really look the same as the professional pictures.

During trial I had the same jewelry with me in my bag, so could see how the look would be.

Dummy guide to Makeup for the Bride-to-Be

Before I entered college I knew zilch about Makeup. I had put on kajal just a couple of times in 11th resulting in my brother telling me that my eyes have grown mustaches :/

4 years of college taught me basic makeup skills, add another couple of years of working under a designer and I could do full makeup in under 15 min while driving a car. It wasn't until I got engaged that I realized  I just know one way of putting makeup. So I did what any girl does, I YouTubed.

I know a lot of girls who have never ever had makeup on. If you are one of them and are too scared and confused, here are video's that are extremely basic! If you know nothing watch these two videos and your good to go!
