Winter Body Care: The French got it right!

It's mid December already but the winters are still being kind to us here up North. I'm loving the pleasant nip in the air during the evenings and the generous afternoon sun. But the one thing that hasn't changed this year is the dry and dehydrated skin which comes to me as naturally as the wilt to flowers come snow. Thus, the hunt begins for the right products!

Like most people, even I have been fed with ideas by my mother about the natural stuff that can never go wrong for skin care. And like pre loaded information in a computer, my brain tends to look for those ingredients as a precursor to approving a beauty product as safe and effective to use. 

For me, one such important ingredient is almond oil and the other self created must haves are for it to smell awesome & to be French. So beauty brands, if you are reading this, you had me at "contains almond oil" and "made in France"!

So here are my recent buys from Loccitane En Provence (my body care favorite of the season) to get winter ready!

The almond shower oil from the Almond collection leaves the skin feeling hydrated and don't worry about it being an oil as it lathers well with water. The body milk and velvet hand cream from the latest Arlesienne collection leave behind a graceful floral fragrance that lingers.

P.S. The pictures are shoppable!

Casual Fridays for Him

Friday dressing is tricky business. Why not approach it in a very 'timeless trend' (read doable) way? We can't go as far as linen pants and wont stay limited to jeans. We've got to keep it casual but at the same time, look sharp.

So we thought, who other than our favourite Don Draper of Mad Men can make the casuals look that slick? So easy yet so classic!

The Winter Chic

Welcome to the first post of Shop The Look!

The chill is back, the rains brought it along in this part of the country. We are trying hard to do all that we can to keep ourselves warm. But in no way does that mean that we will allow the weather to dull down our look. Because the simple rule must always be followed - Look good no matter what!

Today's look, keeping the freezing outdoors in mind: The Winter Chic

New year, new beginnings!

We wanted to start this new year by talking about our love for aesthetics. But then again that thought was haunting my mind. The thought that never leaves my side every time I finish writing a post. The thought that, is it enough to just write about the things that we love and leave it at that? What if the the reader wants to know more? What is it that 'we' want when we read something like this? 

The mind was devoted to bring something new and of use to you. Brains were rattled. Ideas were floated. Questions were asked and answers were delivered, they went something like this…

Q. How many times have you come across killer outfits/ interior layouts on the internet, magazines etc.? 
A. Only all the time…Duh!

Q. How many times have you longed/ lusted for them? 
A. Umm…almost always!

Q. What are the chances of you finding the exact same stuff to put together those looks? 
A. Well, pretty bleak! And besides that, who's got the time in the world to hunt?

Love and longing triumphed as always and the paradox prevails...the cruelty of longing is too kind to us and the time is always running against!

Therefore, we decided to kill the resistance and bridge the gap between longing and acquiring/ buying. 
After all, we love to be the Messiah! (I just realized that the word Messiah has not been used since Christ! But somehow it popped in my head, I'm telling you its god talking through me right now..)

So how are we going to do all this bridging? Fret not!

This year we will not only bring to you ensembles that appeal to your senses, but will go a step ahead and help you shop those looks too.

We shall strive to keep up to your standards and provide you the best that we can by using the concoction of styling sense (we hope!) and the vigilant eye!

This comes to life in our next post, so stay put and wait for it please!
