About Me
Kalki through the looking-glass

As we entered Amy Billimoria’s House of Design in Juhu, Mumbai, we knew we were not in Kansas anymore. The store exudes a happy feeling. From the décor of the store to the clothes housed within it, we could tell that this was going to be a departure from a traditional bridal makeover.

About Me
Sonam and Paras Modi share their marriage mantra…

We met at a common friend’s wedding in Lonavla, after which we started meeting almost twice a week with friends. We got along like a house on fire; it felt so comfortable talking to each other, it was like we were long lost friends. The initial courtship felt more like a game of hide and seek. We didn’t want to tell people yet as we were still getting to know each other.

A home away from home

‘Leaving on a jet plane’ can be a dispiriting experience for a newly married couple. However, the sinking feeling of leaving your country and culture can be turned into an exciting experience. Adorn your house with all that’s ‘Indian’ for that home-like feel

A happy couple takes their vows, cuts the cake and rides into the glorious sunset. The end? Not entirely. An exciting beginning? Most definitely! Many newlyweds while moving abroad go through a bittersweet emotional conundrum—while going abroad seems like an exciting beginning to their married life, leaving the country and culture behind can be a depressing prospect. However, as many believe, home is where the heart is; if your house can take you back to your culture and traditions, then all corners, distances and geographies merge into one—a place you can truly call home!

‘Indian-ness’, if you can call it that, is something that is embedded in our genes. Be it an Indian immigrant or an Indian globetrotter, living the quintessential Indian life abroad and preferring surroundings that are, so to speak, desi, is a characteristic feature typical to all of us. So, while designing the dream home abroad, many Indians consciously incorporate Indian aesthetic sensibilities. Here’s a look at how you can pack a mini India in your suitcase and decorate your home in a manner which always makes you feel at home!

How to achieve fabulous arms

Flaunted the most in a gown—toned shoulders, back and arms cut a picture of envy on the big day and are key to looking fabulous in a white wedding gown

Well, for a white wedding bride, that strapless, off-shoulder, halter, backless gown can spell doom bringing to the fore any unwanted bulge or flab on your arms and shoulders. While it’s a known fact that the legend of ‘spot reduction’ is a mere fable in the fitness turf, you can still effectively sculpt your body to perfection by toning your core and basic muscles. You can’t change your basic body type—you are who you are. Once you have your wedding dress, put it on, stand in front of a full-length mirror, and look at the parts that will be exposed and accordingly tailor your workout routine. Fitness gurus recommend that a bridal workout regime should start in full swing at least three months prior to the wedding. So if you have a sleeveless dress, do the upper-body workout first. For most women, it actually is the upper arms, upper back, and shoulders that command immediate attention. If it is a wedding with the bride sashaying in a backless dress, concentrate on the back muscles first.
