  Insta Pages To Follow To Get An Education In Fashion During The Lockdown
Posted by: admin - 04-24-2020, 01:52 PM - Forum: Trends - No Replies

These are times when keeping sane is an active choice one has to make. The current lockdown to prevent the spread of coronavirus has probably freaked you out, you are perhaps already on your 5443th run on social media and there’s mostly a sinking feeling that you’re dealing with constantly. We’re all in this too, fam! Considering there isn’t much to do and getting smarter is always a great option, brushing up on your skills during COVID-19 is the right way to do this quarantine.

We’ve made a list of the best Instagram pages for fashion. These pages, collectively, combine to give you the most wholesome information about the industry, in the country and internationally. Since there’s a while before we go back to normal, here’s all the info you need to walk out of this a fashion connoisseur.

1. A Fashionistas Diaries

The page gives you a detailed account of the different brands that have been worn by different Bollywood celebrities. It’s a great page for when you love something on say, Deepika Padukone but you do not know where she got it from. ( Not that that will ever happen but it’s great for reference)

2. Diet Sabya

Much like its international counterpart, Diet Prada, this page also looks to call out all the gandi copying in Indian fashion. You’ll need popcorn and some Thums-Up on the side when you’re going in for a session but what this page does best is make designers and brands vigilant.

3. The Voice of Fashion

A page meant for all the industry developments, VOF is a guiding force when it comes to Indian fashion. They talk about insights, market trends and individual experiences within the industry, from the grassroot worker level to the highest designer level. It’s pretty informative!

These two are perhaps the most popular Bollywood paparazzi pages. Their Instagram accounts is a great way to keep yourself updated about how desi celebs dress on a regular basis.

  Katrina & Disha’s Ruched Dresses Are The Perfect Paunch Cover-Up That Tummies Need
Posted by: admin - 04-24-2020, 01:49 PM - Forum: Trends - No Replies

No matter what our body types are--skinny, curvy, broad, or voluptuous; we all have days when in our hearts we want to step out of the house with an abundance of sass and style, but our bodies are in complete disagreement. Ladies all around the world recognise these as ‘bloated days’ and no matter how hard we try to suck our tummies in, the stubborn paunch just refuses to hide!

Normally while we’re on our period, the bloated tummy can come unannounced during off days too and completely ruin our plans to wear that body-hugging top or cute bodycon dress. But guess what? There’s a brand new trend on the block that’s not just stylish, it can perfectly cover-up our winter bod--a ruched dress!

Currently a rave on and off the runways, ‘ruched’ is basically a type of pleat (usually with sheer or organza-like fabrics on top of a sturdier one). The delicate pleats create an illusion of being crunched, therefore, covering up our beloved belly rolls and love handles without having any time spent running on the treadmill!

I’m a thick girl and I love how imperfect my body is but on days when I wake up feeling sexy as hell, a tummy tucker underneath my glam dress is the last thing I’d wanna wear and suffocate myself in. And hence, a ruched outfit to save the day! YAY! Looks like the fittest of Bollywood celebs are using this trick too ‘cause we just spotted Katrina Kaif and Disha Patani sport this trend. Disha even admitted in a comment meant for Tiger Shroff’s sister that breathing was optional in her dress. We can obviously choose a more comfortable size!

Here are some of the best and the most affordable ruched pieces available online:

1. Burgundy ruched dress

Very similar to that of Disha’s dress, this hot one is a perfect Saturday night outfit.

2. Cute ruched blouse

You don’t always have to go for the OTT vibe. You can embrace this trend for a more everyday look too.

3. Summer mini skirt

How adorable is this ruched mini skirt? The colour, the delicate floral print, the design; everything about this mini skirt will make you yearn for the summer.

4. One-shouldered ruched dress

This dress is a perfect pick for a sophisticated sit-down dinner look when paired with a blazer and high heels.

5. Retro floral ruched top

We’re in love!

  Hate Tucked Tops Rolling Up Inside The Pants? Behold, The Chamatkaar Of Bodysuits
Posted by: admin - 04-24-2020, 01:44 PM - Forum: Trends - No Replies

Let’s just admit it, the second most pressing issue that every woman has faced while dressing up apart from lowers sans pockets is--our tucked tops and shirts rolling up from inside our pants! As much as we love a solid crisp shirt paired with blue denims look, it’s truly a task to seamlessly tuck in our uppers inside pants!

But designers and fashion innovators have been working overtime to find a solution to flatten out our tops from under our trousers and erase that weird inconsistent line around our bum. The answer is--a sexy bodysuit! TADAAA.

Resembling a one-piece swimsuit that covers your upper body while doubling up for panties, a bodysuit AKA leotard is modern outerwear usually with buttons to fasten between our thighs. It’s the most convenient solution to stop rolled up shirts/tops and also any visible lines in your bottom. So much so that our leading Bollywood celebs have completely surrendered to this trend!

Take a look at these gorgeous actresses and how they style their bodysuits:

Kareena Kapoor Khan

Kareena shows us how to nail the easy bodysuit trend in a variety of ways. She keeps her lowers versatile too! From patent leather skirts and denim joggers to casual trousers, she proves that when your top fits well, any lowers can look dope on you.

Malaika Arora


With a body like that, Malaika can really pull off absolutely anything in this world. So when it comes to stunning bodysuits, Malaika won’t make the look subtle either! This tie-dye print bodysuit is the perfect example.

Diana Penty

Diana took inspiration from her modeling days and went avant garde in this bold bodysuit with cutouts on her torso. To tone the look down, she paired it with wide-legged pants and a cardigan.

Disha Patani

Disha always takes the hot route when it comes to fashionable outfits. She’s sported lacey, bustier-style, see-through bodysuits that linger along the fine line of lingerie turned into outerwear. We especially love this black bodysuit with wired cups--makes for a glam night out look.

Kriti Sanon

Kriti always sticks to her personal sense of style that is feminine, flirty, and a hell of a lot of fun! In this look, she sports a pink bodysuit but makes it mold into her aesthetic with paper bag-waisted PU shorts and keeps the look easy with white sneakers and a ponytail.

  Love Thrillers? Here Are 4 Indian Short Films With Brilliant Plot Twists
Posted by: admin - 04-24-2020, 01:27 PM - Forum: Tv - No Replies

Due to the ongoing lockdown, a lot of us are consuming movies and shows at an alarming rate. Since we can’t go out, we have resorted to the visual arts to keep ourselves entertained. However, if you want to take a break from digital streaming platforms, it’s time you watched some interesting short films on YouTube. You can catch up on these shorts while cooking, cleaning, or doing other household chores. However, remember to not miss the plot twist.

1. Ahalya

Source: LargeShortFilms

Directed by Sujoy Ghosh, this short is a spin on the popular folklore about the mythological character of Ahalya who was believed to be seduced by Indra and chastised by her husband Gautama Maharishi. In the modern short film version, a young police officer, Indra, visits the home of a famous ageing artist Goutam to investigate the disappearance of a model named Arjun. During their discussion, Goutam’s wife greets the men and introduces herself as Ahalya. What seems like a normal conversation soon takes a sinister turn when Indra feels infatuated with Ahalya.

2. Chutney

Source: LargeShortFilms 

A young woman flirts with a married man at a party while his wife notices them from a distance. She invites the young woman home the next day, and serves delicious snacks and a spicy story that starts on a light note but ends on an unexpected, dark one. We would recommend watching the short closely so that you don’t miss the subtle hints and impeccable acting by the cast.

3. Neighbours


Source: Anand Tiwari

A married couple spends most of their time in silence and goes about their regular duties without engaging in conversation. However, their next-door neighbours (another couple) live a diametrically opposite life. They fight, talk, and have sex loudly, which can be heard by everyone living in their vicinity. However, the climax isn’t what anyone (including the eavesdroppers) would have anticipated.

4. Nayantara’s Necklace

Source: LargeShortFilms 

Two women, Alka (Tillotama Shome) and Nayantara (Konkona Sen Sharma) build a friendship that changes their lives forever. While Nayantara lives an affluent life, Alka is a middle-class housewife who leads a simple life. However, under Nayantara’s influence, Alka enters the world of social media, glitz, and glamour only to realise that not everyone’s as happy as they are pretending to be. It’s a thrilling, thought-provoking short that will make you appreciate the simpler things in life.

  Neena Gupta & Jitendra Kumar Live The Rural Life In Prime Video’s Panchayat
Posted by: admin - 04-24-2020, 01:13 PM - Forum: Tv - No Replies

Prime Video just dropped the trailer of their upcoming web-series Panchayat, and it could just be the show we all need for our next (or ongoing) binge-watching sessions. Produced by The Viral Fever (TVF), the show stars Jitendra Kumar, Neena Gupta, Raghubir Yadav, and Biswapati Sarkar in lead roles. As per the trailer, Kumar’s character Abhishek Tripathi is posted in a small village called Phulera. He despises his job because he wants to make it big in the city. When he shares his struggles with his friend, he’s advised to prepare for CAT (Common Admission Test for MBA aspirants) to escape his frustrating situation.

Source: The Viral Fever

When he arrives at Phulera, he’s welcomed by a couple (Neena Gupta and Raghubir Yadav) who aren’t too impressed with him, but behave cordially. During his stay, Tripathi realises that, like most villages in India, Phulera suffers from inconsistent electricity supply. It seems, along with the villagers, Tripathi will try to come up with a solution that will solve the village’s power-supply problem. We have to watch the series to know if Tripathi has a change of heart after his stint at the village. The show will release on April 3rd.

This is Kumar’s second collaboration with Neena Gupta after Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan. In the movie, Kumar plays the role of a young man who’s struggling to make his parents (Gajraj Rao and Neena Gupta) accept his sexuality.

Source: T-series and Colour Yellow Productions

According to India Today, speaking about working with Gupta for the second time, Kumar said, “Panchayat is the unique and charming story of a young man struggling to adjust to his new life in a remote village. I could not have been more excited to work on Panchayat and particularly the opportunity to work with the brilliant Neena Guptaji once again.” Gupta, on the other hand, said, “Playing the role of Manju Devi, a quirky matriarchal homemaker and official village Pradhan was a huge amount of fun, especially alongside such a talented cast and crew. Panchayat is a light-hearted, funny series with plenty of heart. I know Prime members are going to fall in love with its unique characters and authentic rural flavour.”

Kumar first shot to fame when he played the role of Jitendra Maheshwari aka Jeetu bhaiyya in the web-series TVF Pitchers. Since then, he has cemented his place in the world of OTT platforms with various shows like TVF Bachelors, Kota Factory, and Cheesecake.

  7 Signs That Prove He's Just Not Interested
Posted by: admin - 04-24-2020, 01:04 PM - Forum: Relationships - No Replies

As sad as it may sound, one of the most difficult and frustrating positions for a woman to be in is not knowing if a man is into her or not.

The idea of new love and butterflies will take over, irrespective of the other person’s proclamation or not. And this is where the problem begins. We lift ourselves to a point where we expect too much and wait for them to reciprocate. However, it might not happen because he was never that into you, to begin with.

To save you the misery of this predicament, we have listed out the top 7 signs that he’s just not that into you and you must not pin too many hopes here:

1. One of the biggest signs is his texting habit

If he’s never the first to text or even call, responds late and sounds disinterested to carry the conversation forward, then he is just not that into you. Men are just like us when they like someone. They become obsessive and keep a close eye on their inbox to see if there is a response. If you don’t have one, then it is your cue to take back them feelings.

2. Does he get even a little jealous?

This is not the ‘charging at the other guy who glanced at you’ kind of jealous. That is crazy. This is the subtle yet awkward jealousy that they can’t put into words. They wish you would give them attention in front of the other person so that they know that you two are a thing--kind of jealous. If he’s not jealous, girl, you are friend-zoned.

3. You haven’t met any of his friends, have you?

This also shows that he doesn’t spend a lot of time with you. Men love their friendships too and this is just a way of easing someone into your life--by introducing them to your friend circle. You can beat around the bush all you want but see if they are up for a group session to hangout.

4. Your equation with him is a big ball of convenience on his end

You are wrapped around his pinky finger and work according to his schedule. You meet when he is free, you don’t get a response if he’s busy and his gaming gets more attention than you do. Come on! In the beginning even the most self-consumed man gives a girl attention, then why is he so disinterested? This is a sign.

5. He is not treating you differently

You don’t catch him looking at you in a room full of people, he doesn’t offer to drop you home, and overall he is indifferent. This is bad! He has to show that he cares through his actions. It is a lot like grandma’s advice on love--“what is love if it is not said or shown?”

6. You don’t get to hear the personal stuff about him

He doesn’t share his stories with you. Every conversation is surface level and that is a sign that he’s not comfortable around you. If a man likes a woman, he wants to share personal and intimate details with her.

7. You don’t feel like he’s into you

Despite all these signs being there, we could be wrong. He could still be into you and he has different ways of showing it. The biggest and the best judge of it all is you at the end of the day. If you feel like he is interested, then you go ahead. And if you don’t then you just have to accept it.
Bonus Point: If he doesn’t text or call during a lockdown, girl, he is just NOT THAT into you

This is the ultimate truth. He’s at home, probably on his phone throughout the day and if he still complains about not having time, then he’s just not prioritising you. He would take out time if he cared.

So now you have your answer, sis.

  8 Things I Learnt From Dating Someone Differently Abled
Posted by: admin - 04-24-2020, 12:57 PM - Forum: Relationships - No Replies

My cousin once dated a man who had an OCD about seating arrangements. While we all joked that he reminded us of Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory, the fact is that we accepted his OCD as a part of him. There were times when we went 'Awww' at how he'd spend two full minutes adjusting the cushions at a restaurant. There were also those times when we made a few faces when he'd overturn an entire room at a house party. But, like I mentioned, we remember him for the curious, witty, loving person he was -- not for his disorder.

While we take similar steps to meet other people halfway, like when it comes to dating someone with a bit of a temper, or a chronic problem with procrastination, or even a semi-lethal snoring pattern, one bridge always seems too far away -- dating someone who is disabled. Or like they empathetically call it, differently abled.

Dating someone who is differently abled does have a stigma attached to it, as much as we’d like to believe otherwise. I thought it wouldn't be so too, until I got into a relationship with Karan, and watched the world look at me with worry, sympathy and a hint of disappointment. To cut it short, Karan had Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA -- please Google!) and the time I spent with him left me with several realisations about life.

While I’ll share those musings some other time, today, I want to tell the world what my major takeaways from this relationship with a “differently-abled” person were…

1) Do Not Assume That Help Is Required Until It Is Asked

On our first few dates, the one thing he was very clear about was the fact that if he did not ask me for help, it is because he did not need it! Wanting to help your partner might come from a very good place in your heart, but it is imperative that we understand what goes through the mind of someone who is differently abled when people assume that they always need assistance. How would you feel if during a conversation, the person you are speaking to stopped after every sentence to reiterate what he or she just said assuming that you might not have understood it in the first place? Not fun!

2) Questions Are Good

As I recount my experience of having dated someone who was “specially abled” (another one of those terms), the first thing I had to understand was that it is OKAY to ask a lot of questions until you have a clear understanding. I would initially hesitate to ask questions as, a) I didn't want to come across as ignorant and b) I didn't want to make my partner conscious by constantly asking him stuff. Yet, it was when my partner helped me realize that information is crucial, that I was open about my doubts. Moreover, if the two of you last for a while, the questions will soon turn to, 'What do you want to have for dinner?' and nothing more. Stick on … it gets simpler!

3) Don't Play Hero (ine)

One of our favorite things to do was to go out for midnight ice cream. It was 'our thing'. With a bewildering consistency, almost every second time we'd go for our midnight trips, we would encounter someone who felt compelled to stare for eternity or passed a rude comment. While it might feel like instinct to protect your loved one, one must always be given the room to fight their own battles. Refrain from the pity-party attitude!

4) You Are Allowed To Be Mad

The ultimate quest of everyone in the margins of society is to be treated equally. Special privileges and perks were never demanded and neither is one expected to be falsely cordial. It is okay to be mad at your differently abled partner if they are late for a date or screw up a plan. Just be yourself and try not to be unreasonable.

5) Humour - Friend Or Foe?

I must admit, this was a tricky subject for me to broach. I was initially so paranoid about unconsciously passing a remark or joke that would end up being hurtful, I’d often think twice before saying anything at all. Slowly, I realised my partner had the ability to laugh at himself (told ya, never assume or judge!), after which I breathed a sigh of relief. Moral of the story? Don’t stress the small stuff!

6) Plan and Plan Well

While the taboo surrounding dating specially-abled people is disappointing, no one said it is easy. Dating someone who might have confined mobility comes with its challenges. Especially in a country like ours, public facilities are still often rudimentary and that might limit several decisions. So, it is crucial to plan your dates and avoid unwanted surprises or too many awkward moments.

7) It's All About Loving Your Choice

If ever a cliche about Indian families were true, it would have to be the one about parents interfering in the dating lives of their children. Indian families can get messy, are often conservative and will almost certainly not hold back from warning you about the many consequences and challenges of such a relationship. I always felt that it is best to be open and yet assertive about what you want.

8) Awareness Is Everything

While I certainly feel that one must avoid playing doctor and nothing is more irritating than spouting 'Googled' medical wisdom, it is important to be aware of facts. Differently abled people often battle a whole range of medical issues and ignorance is never fruitful. Discuss details with your partner and make sure that you know what to do and when you should do it; this is most definitely required.

  I now regret all the instances in the past when I came up with some really lame excus
Posted by: admin - 04-24-2020, 12:57 PM - Forum: Relationships - No Replies

Are you someone like me who just hates to step out on a weekend? Do your friends literally have to drag you out of your house? Do you often find yourself brainstorming for legit excuses to cancel plans with friends? While the answer to all three questions is a loud yes, I am sure the lockdown has compelled you to think otherwise. If yes, here’s a virtual high-five to you.

I now regret all the instances in the past when I came up with some really lame excuses to not be a part of any social gatherings or weekly outings. How I miss all of it now. Putting all the WhatsApp groups on mute and ignoring all the messages, is something I feel guilty about now. Not because I don’t love my friends, but because after a grueling week at work, I just felt like doing nothing. As much as I love my friends, I didn’t want my brain and body to engage in any extra-curricular activity.

But the isolation has taught me some serious life lessons which I can’t ignore. I have now come to terms with the fact how important social interactions and meetups are. While all this while I secretly mastered the art of making excuses, deep inside I hate that skill now.

Away from the crowd and cacophony, lying on my couch, doing absolutely nothing--is what kinda ideal weekends looked like. Straining myself and taking that extra effort to dress up which I dread earlier, is now something I can’t wait for. I can’t wait to go out and meet people who matter and give them a big hug! It doesn’t end there. I also wish to tell each one of them separately, how important they are to me. Even though I have the option to do that on a video call now, I feel these emotions are conveyed better in person.

The fact is, I am bored being a couch potato. Laziness is not my thing anymore. I admit I feel lonely and I need people around. I need to talk and indulge in conversations with my friends. The lockdown has really changed me. While I never thought I would ever feel bad for flaking on friends, but in all honesty, now I do.

I have in fact made a long list of things I wish to do once everything settles down. As surprising as it may seem to my friends, but I will be the one calling them up to make plans irrespective of the weekend. I will be the first one to leave a message on the group, “Hey, let’s meet up girls. I have never missed you guys so much!”

  Ayushmann & Tahira Share How They Are Keeping Their Kids Occupied During Covid-19
Posted by: admin - 04-24-2020, 12:30 PM - Forum: Parenting - No Replies

With everyone practicing social distancing, and Bollywood on shut down, most stars are homebound and getting some much-needed downtime. But for those who are parents, with schools shut, finding a way to entertain their kids is proving to be difficult. Ayushmann Khuranna took to his Instagram to share what he and wife Tahira Kashyap are doing.

With a whole bunch of newspapers on the floor, Tahira, five-year-old Varushka Khurrana and eight-year-old Virajveer Khurrana can be seen busy painting. In the last shot, Ayushmann reveals his artwork which he titled ‘gender fluid’.

Painting, though messy, is a great screen-free way to keep kids occupied. Painting also helps children communicate and express themselves, according to research.

Ayushmann has opened up about how he wants his children to have a normal childhood, and speaking to a leading newspaper he said, “They should have a normal upbringing that we had. That’s good for their growth. They should not be thinking in their head that they are stars already. They should learn everything the hard way and that can only be possible when Tahira (Kashyap Khurrana) and I bring them up in a certain way and keep them away from the arch lights.”

He also opened up about his parenting style, "I'm neither strict nor protective. I’m a kid like them. I play with them. While my wife (Tahira) acts like the bad cop, I’ve to be the good cop because most of the time I’m travelling for my films and gigs. It gets quite hectic and I can't afford to be strict. I've to be their friend."

Ayushmann also had his second child at 29, and spoke about that experience to a newspaper saying, “They don't really know what is happening around. He feels weird, when kids call me by my first name. Being a young father is an advantage. You don't look like a father. It’s fun to see your kids grow and you're in touch with the next generation."

Good on your Ayushmann and Tahira. We’re going to do the same thing with our kids today and unleash those little Picassos!
