Monsoon Hair Rescue with Moroccanoil| Review

This monsoon season we are having good downpours in Maharashtra which was much much needed. But at the same time the price is being paid by our hair! I live in a city that isn’t really used to humidity, this monsoon season has dampened all of the dry air in Pune. Right around this time two good Moroccan saviours walk into my life.

I was sent the Moroccanoil Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner and in its first wash only it seemed so promising that I decided to be proactive too and put out this post.

What is Moroccanoil?

What started with just one product is now a full fledged line of products for the hair, face and body.

Moroccanoil was inspired by the transformative power of Argan Oil. Rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, this age-old beauty secret has many uses, helping to hydrate and soften your hair, face, body and nails. Argan oil for hair leaves it beautiful, shiny and nourished with each use.

Why the Moroccanoil Smoothing Range?

  • Phosphate free.
  • Sulphate free.
  • Paraben free.
  • Colour safe.
  • Features Amino-Renew technology

Packaging

I have a major soft spot for Matte packagings and both the shampoo and conditioner bottles are matte with just the look that has a sheen.

Smell

DSC_0138 copy

Fruity floral fragrances are always our favourite picks but mild fragrances is what you always sends my senses to a quaint spa room.

The fragrance of the range is refreshing and yet not overwhelming. I unfortunately cannot explain the smell but it’s definitely not floral or fruity or even aqua. The fragrance of the shampoo is infact milder as compared to the conditioner.

Texture

DSC_0130 copy

DSC_0128 copy

The conditioner looks like shea butter to me it’s nice and creamy and isn’t runny in its consistency.

The shampoo is creamish in colour and translucent.

Quantity

Both are bottles are 250ml each.

Price

The Moroccanoil Shampoo is Rs.1800 and even the Moroccanoil Conditioner is Rs.1800.

My Experience

DSC_0139 copy

I’ve used the actual Moroccanoil about 5 years back and for the price it was at I would’ve expected it to have miraculously made my hair shiny but that didn’t happen but as an oil and as a serum it was good no doubt. Similarly if a shampoo is almost two grand then your expectations are high and you try to use it as sparingly! That’s the state of mind I was in when I started of with these products.

The first thing that I liked was the smell and the bottle cap. I was really surprised when just even a coin sized amount of shampoo was lathering well. Normally sulphate free shampoos don’t lather much and as a hairdresser I was happy seeing the shampoo lather well.

Despite being used to using a hair masque for my hair the conditioner yet did its job well after leaving it on for five minutes.

The end result was that my hair felt less frizzy and the curls were more defined! The conditioner definitely tackled the dryness in my hair too and gave it a shine:) The Smoothing range didn’t make my scalp greasy either!

Final Verdict on the Moroccanoil Smoothing Range?

If you would love to spend over pampering your hair then the Moroccanoil Shampoo and Conditioner is a must try. If not then definitely atleast go try out a Moroccanoil therapy at a salon:)

Bewakoof-y in Style| Trend Alert: Joggers

While I spoke of Joggers in my last post on Airport Fashion, Bewakoof.com sent me a pair of joggers along with a very fun tank. My new found love for Joggers has clearly been noticed😉

This time around I experimented with the joggers and tank and styled them to put together a SSS (Sporty Street Style) Look or a Sporty Chic look.

I personally love the idea of taking a simple piece of clothing and then playing it up!

Half of you people who actually personally know me that this Tank doesnt befit me because of its slogan! I am so talkative sometimes that I really need people to gag me to shut up :p

Breakdown of the Look– The joggers in single colour gave the outfit that sporty touch, the printed tank added to the quirkiness of the look. To add glam to the look there are always heels and accessories:)

I have always liked well fitted tops but over time this fixation has changed! Why miss out on cool looking long tops or loose tops because a knot is what can make all the difference. Whether it’s knotting the top up on the side or in the centre it absolutely transforms a look to a more stylish one😀

TSC Styling Tip: for deep necked tank tops, knots can be made on the strap too to shorten the length.

Bewakoof.com is possibly your only one stop shop for Joggers for women! From printed to bright coloured and even denim joggers, you will find them all. As for their tank tops for women; they are really cool with fun slogans and happy colours and even the material isn’t the kinds that looses shape in a wash!

Hope you guys liked this post and look. This look was an absolute blast for me to create and a very wearable look. Happy Weekend:)

Airport Fashion1

​Airport Fashion Decoded with The Style Chair

So we see Miss Malini or even Magazines (Vogue, Elle, etc. Online) catching our celebrities at the airport and praising their ‘Airport Fashion’. Ever wondered what’s the whole ‘Airport Fashion’ hype?

In this post TSC shall break down Airport Fashion like no one has before. Airport Fashion might not seem like a big deal but with the travel season on you ladies have got to slay at the airport too😉

Let me just go completely layman and break down Airport fashion: Dress as per the occasion, ground rule right? Here, the occasion is travelling! Comfortable dressing is the way to go when travelling.

What to wear to slay Airport Fashion?

Outerwear

A jacket is a must because airports can get quite chilly. A light jacket for a summer vacay and a comfortable overcoat or a leather jacket make the perfect fit for airport fashion and a winter vacation.

Innerwear

A t-shirt is the best bet for airport fashion or even a loose shirt.

Bottom Wear- Loose and comfortable lowers is what you must opt for a journey. With Joggers trending these days that would be my first option (Bewakoof.com has a special whole collection for just Joggers). Harem pants & palazzo pants definitely make for comfort wear.

Footwear

For a beach holiday I would happily travel in flip flops and get into the beach mode already.

Skater shoes and slip on shoes would be a good option so as to avoid the trouble of opening up your shoes later to put your feet up. But nothing yet beats the comfort of a pair of sneakers.

For a winter break definitely wear your boots. This way you would save your boots from getting spoilt in trying to pack the high rise boots. (Although you will be made to remove the boots at security check).

Layer it Up!

A scarf or a stole should be a staple when travelling. Not only does it add a little zing to your look but will also keep you warm instead of throwing on a jacket.

What not to wear at an Airport?

Heels– do you want to be walking all around the airport in heels and tire yourself out even before you start your holiday? Don’t you think you would be a wre bit overdressed in heels at an airport! Even celebrities don’t do that :p

Tight fit clothes– travelling clothes should be all about comfort and face it tight fit clothes are definitely not comfortable to travel in.

Statement jewellery– again it’s an airport not a club. And out of my own experience I shall warn you that the security officials will be quite a pain with their checking and make you remove all your accessories.

More than a year back I had done a post on How to Travel in Style and organise your packing➡ Pack it Right & Light by TSC Some points might be repeatitive here:

Caps/Hats-

Caps and hats look pretty cool at an airport and also keep them messy hair off the face. I personally hate my hats getting crumpled by packing them and if I run out of space in my hand carried luggage then I just wear it😉 Simple.

Travel Bag

Totes (the neverfull LV bag is your luxe option), duffel bags & the best of them all backpacks (I’ve been drooling over the all new MK Backpacks though 😍)

Neck pillow

Lots of brands like Chumbak have some very quirky looking Neck pillows. Orelse at every airport you will find Neck pillows being sold at some store or the other.

Eye mask

Long travel means you can catch up on all the sleep you normally miss out on. Wear a fun looking eye mask and sleep away like a baby (in style😉 )

This post was a very special request by a reader who mailed me her request. I’ve had it in my mind to do a post on Airport fashion but all thanks to her I actually went ahead and finally did this post. Apologies for the delay though:)

​Runway Inspired Fashion Accessory Trends For Women

This one’s a guest post on TSC and I absolutely love the work done in this post! Must Read:

With fashion in full swing, the latest fall 2016 runway was seen with the most covetable accessories and sparkles. While Prada and Alexander McQueen were high on headpiece jewelry, Undercover came up with the vintage watches trend. 

You must be thinking why do you need runway fashion trends? Well, it’s simple. If you are a fashionista and want to stay ahead of the fashion, be informed of the runway trends. They are what go on to become a rage.

So now you know, let us see the biggest fashion accessory trends for women for 2016 and how to incorporate it into your every day style –

Oversized or BFF Watches

runway

Oversized watches for women made a comeback in runway fashion. Gucci made an appearance with them and then many others seem to follow. The oversized watch is great to be accompanied with casual clothing. For formal ones, an oversized bracelet watch will always reign.
To channel the classy vibes, go for a bracelet watch in rose gold. Last season, Guess and Michael Kors came up with coloured dials in watches, they are still taking the rounds in fashion and they look absolutely gorgeous.

Sports Luxe

runway1

Nothing says sporty than a pair of loose fit joggers, a snapback cap and a casual oversized tee. This fall collection was all about sports luxe. Dior hit the runway with the sporty watches for girls while snapback cap trend was seen in other brands.
If you have a sporty and extrovert persona, then the sports luxe will be the best style to complement your personality. You can stay super casual yet look super cool. The jogger trend is not going to die very soon so get your hands on one or two jogger pants. Colored ones are in fashion too. Pair a nice sporty watch to complete your look along with a dapper snapback.

Chain Bags

runway2

This year, chains were seen on runway looks from Gucci, Prada and Louis Vuitton. The bags were compact in size, almost like the size of a clutch or a handheld. They were not used as arm candy but rather they were held like a clutch with metal chain slinging from the handle.
Metal has the power to accentuate everything. On a bag, it can really grab the focus right there while making a strong style statement.

Get your hands on a handheld clutch with metal detailing or a small shoulder bag that has a metal strap to carry it in style.

Crown accessories

runway3

Crown accessories made a huge noise in Celine and Chloe. Miu Miu also added glamour to the runway with beautiful crown pieces like headgears and other shiny harnesses. Our traditional maang tika is somewhat the similar trend except that it is worn with ethnic wear.
For the chicest crown accessory, you can buy a modish maang tika with stone studded on it. It can be worn sideways or on the side parting to look cool and stylish.

Bejeweled pumps

runway4

Pumps were seen making a statement in almost every high-end shoe brand’s runway take. From studded heels to sling back and tie-ups, embellished pumps made the runway look so hot and almost on fire.

They are definitely going to be the next big thing. Hunt for perfect pumps with subtle embellishments to keep you sorted for the diva look and channel the perfect runway vibe.
So you have the trend report for Fall 2016 runway fashion. That’s all you need to stay one step ahead of your peers when it comes to fashion. So wear it and slay it, just the ‘runway’ way!

rangriti ethnic wear for women

Rangriti: Eclectic in Ethnic

My latest quest for some regular wear desi brought me to discover Rangriti. I’m not doing this post only as a blogger but because I know as a consumer how confusing a ton of options can be while online shopping for women.

That reminds me, have any of you faced a problem of asking someone (friend/acquaintance/ blogger) about outfit details and not get a response. I personally find it ridiculous that people run away from sharing details of what they wear and where they buy it from. Sharing details certainly doesn’t jeopardise your own sense of style. Everyone has a different sense of style and the same dress for example looks different on different people. Infact let’s help our friends out there and make this world that bit more fashionable.

Coming back to my discovery of the day! This post is going to be yet another saviour for all you desi belles. TSC shall tell you all about Rangriti along with what’s trending in the world of ethnic wear for women.

What is Rangriti?

Rangriti is a brand that offers the latest trends in Ethnic Wear For Women, who are always desirous of dressing up in style. Rangriti online store offers contemporary designs in traditional kurtas and tops to cater to the needs of modern Indian women.
Classic patterns with fabric innovation is the core design component of Rangriti women’s clothing. Mesmerizing hues and elegant cuts bestow every piece with unmatched grace and beauty. Flaunt the latest trends in vogue with amazing block prints and contrast detailing on kurtas. Rangriti has exclusive fashion clothing, which offers some of the best deals when it comes to online shopping for women.
Rangriti has its stores for online shopping for women (www.rangriti.com) as well as stores all over the country.

Why Rangriti?

Wide variety of styles.
From a wide range of kurtas (asymmetric, long, anarkali) and kurtis, knitted churidars, salwars and palazzos. Best part is they have a wide variety of cotton dupattas too.
You can even select your ethnic outfit according to the different collections that Rangriti has to offer. Personally I liked how Rangriti’s ethnic wear for women is best suited for daily wear or even office wear. Wear them for office meetings and important presentations, the straight cut patterns and subdued colors leave an everlasting impression.

  • Wide variety of colours.
    While the dull weather approaches us we definitely need colour to quirk up our days. Rangriti makes sure to not disappoint us on this one. From lime green to fuchsia pink, bright red and indigo blues, Rangriti’s got them all.

  • Pocket friendly.
    When we say everyday fashion then the prices also should be in accordance and that is how it’s with Rangriti’s ethnic wear. Even the dressier kurtis are inexpensive and quite pocket friendly infact. The dupattas really surprise me for the price they are at and the wide variety offered.
  • Easy online ordering and returns.
    Returns to refunds and even cancellations all are very promptly carried out by Rangriti. They even offer Cash on Delivery.

TSC’s Favourite Ethnic looks from Rangriti #TrendAlertrangriti ethnic wear for women (4)

Here are a few of the top trends in Ethnic fashion and TSC is loving them:

  • Tunic styles are quite the trend for Kurtis these days. From printed to plain coloured tunics take your pick. Pair the tunics with salwars or even palazzo pants.
  • The other trend is the denim trend. Denims kurtas whatever be the cut or style of the kurta! Its denim all the way:)
  • The maxi look. Maxi kurtas with palazzo pants have been doing the rounds for a while and seem to be a trend that’s here to stay.
