Salon Review - Toni & Guy Essentuals Kalyani Nagar

Toni & Guy need no introduction when it comes to salons and hairdressing since this iconic name has been in the industry for over 50 years. Founded by the Mascolo brothers Toni, Guy, Bruno and Anthony in 1963, their first salon opened in the south of London and now have a global presence as international leaders in the hairdressing industry, setting new standards for hairdressers and making education available globally. 

In fact, the brand TIGI is also owned by them and is an abbreviation for Toni International Guy International. Bet you didn't know that! I recently attended a session of pampering and primping at their latest outlet in Kalyani Nagar in Pune and was delighted by their services. Not only do they offer all sorts of haircuts, colors and treatments, but they also offer beauty treatments like manis, pedis, waxing and much more!

Check out the clean and sophisticated interiors of the salon - 


The salon boasts of courteous and well trained staff and since I and a bunch of fellow bloggers tried various different services, this is definitely a salon I'd recommend if you're in Kalyani Nagar!

Even if you've been reading my blog for years, you might have noticed that I pretty much never post ethnic looks! But since it's wedding season here in India, and it is quite a task to find nice ready made ethnic wear, I wanted to let you all know about Ninecolours.com.

 The best part about the outfit I got from them is that it can be worn in three different ways using the same dupatta - lehenga, anarkali kurta with lehenga skirt and anarkali with salwar! I wore the lehenga look on Diwali and received a lot of compliments!

How To Make Your Work Clothes Less Boring

Looking stylish at work can be quite a challenge for those of you in a corporate office with a dress code. You could choose the uniform route of shirts and trousers to save time but that can leave you feeling frumpy after awhile and won't give you the chance to express your personality. Even though I'm an avid fashion lover and have been blogging for eons, I've always had a full time job on the side and let me tell you, being a fashion blogger in an IT park is quite a situation! But just because I have a serious job in data analytics, it doesn't mean I'm going to wear boring formals. 

I got these two lovely shirts from www.fashion71.net and you can see how they pair well with the same skirt. Both the shirts are of good fabric and quality and my package arrived in less than two weeks after I ordered.  Fashion71 has a wide range of clothing, accessories, shoes and lingerie at wholesale prices and since they're based in China, their designs are unique and you won't find any of these in Indian stores or brands. Even though most women in India refrain from wearing skirts, I am extremely comfortable in them and practically live in them. I like mixing and matching my skirts with cute shirts and tops for semi formal yet stylish looks like I have below.

4 Tips For Selecting A Beauty Pageant Dress

Pageants are a great opportunity for a girl to have fun and look spectacular at the same time. However, choosing the right attire for the occasion can be a hard thing to do. With lots of expectations, anxiety and the need to look amazing, picking the perfect dress can become quite a challenge. All these emotions might have a negative impact on the contestant affecting their score so they need to look and feel their very best. To exude confidence, choosing the right dress is vital and this really boosts a lady’s chance in the pageant. Here are 4 tips for selecting a beauty pageant dress  -



1. Wear a gown that makes you feel confident

Confidence is everything when you are selecting a dress for a pageant. Judges can quickly tell the winner by the correct attire. A gown that you wear and can walk in comfortably gives you the confidence to walk gracefully and makes a huge impact in a pageant competition.

Feeling confident also goes along with selecting a dress that compliments your skin tone and not overwhelm it. Find out which dress works for you and if possible, let some your family members come along and seek their honest opinions. Various types of pageant dresses are available in many shops, select and wear what pleases you and makes you feel beautiful.


2. Wear something simple

A simple gown is easier for the judges to see and remember. Choose a monochromatic dress and avoid distracting patterns and prints that distract the judges from seeing your personality. The fabric should not be too shiny and look more of a prom dress.

 

3. Budget and timing

Make an estimate based on your budget, ensuring that it does not exceed what you can afford. Consider the cost of any alterations that you might need, shoes, and jewelry. You can also opt to shop earlier for your pageant dress once you know your budget. Shopping beforehand gives you ample time to make any necessary fittings and adjustments. Budgeting also enables you to start saving early reducing the pressure that comes with wanting to buy the best dress with a limited budget. Click through here to browse the new line that Terani Couture offers for you to prepare early for that pageant. Their styles and dresses are unique and will complement your features to reveal your confidence and poise. Are you looking for a dress with a slit or that is strapless to display those amazing legs or shoulders? They have a great collection that compliments all your physical features.



4. Wear a dress that conveys the right message

A pageant dress needs to show the judges your personality. A judge can take a look at two ladies wearing the same type and styles of dress and will be able to tell their character from how they look. If you are a confident person, a flashy dress would be an ideal choice. Your dress must always reflect your personality.

Pageants involve a lot of activities and apart from the speeches and talent; your performance might also be part of the evaluation and selection criteria. After you’ve selected the dress, practice your walk to increase your level of confidence and get a perfect poise and balance.

I got the Elan Cosmetic Case in Java Brown, which is a great UNISEX set containing 
two cosmetic cases and cotton canvas drawstring bag.


Urby pouches are handcrafted in premium grained leather and have a full length zip opening for easy access.


Both pouches are have spacious water-proof interiors with gusset sides and a leather tab for zip closure support.
