Wedding Songs



Everyone loves to dance at an Indian wedding, and even if you don't you still have to !!
Biggest question what song to perform??

5 Easy Tips By a MUA for the Bride to be!

Bangalore based Rekha Krishnamurthy from 'Studio Mirror Loves Youadvises Brides-to-be....

 1. Drink lots of fluids
Drinking fluids, especially, Water is more of a common sense than a tip. This is one rule each one of us should follow throughout our lives. Water helps flush out toxins and the effects can certainly be seen on one’s skin. There is an unmistakable glow on your face, constantly, when you make drinking atleast 8 glasses of water a practice. Along with water, one can also consume juices of clear fruits and vegetables like Watermelon, Cucumber etc



2. Watch what you eat
Wedding is a once in a lifetime celebration, and one cannot help but get carried away with lot of mouth watering savories around. But, a little bit of discipline would definitely go a long way. So, ensure that you stop consuming Sweets & Deep Fried foods atleast 15 Days before your wedding. The last thing you want is a pimple to pop on your Big Day. Also, if you are a Non – Vegetarian, restrict yourself to grilled delicacies only. (toughest thing to do of all 5! )

Go back in time and thank someone! Stay Rooted!

Featured 

L’Oreal Paris Fall Repair 3X. 

Every shampoo today speaks about strong hair, but what really matters is the roots that make the hair strong. Only strong roots can give you strong and healthy hair. L’Oreal Paris Fall Repair 3X is one such shampoo that takes care of your roots. 

Fall Repair 3X is an Anti-Hair Fall Shampoo that delivers a triple anti-hair fall action. It nourishes the hair root, restructures hair fibre and helps the hair grow stronger from root to tip!

Only Fall Repair 3X is enriched with Arginine Essence. Arginine is an essential amino acid that is vital for hair’s constitution. It is known for nourishing the scalp to improve micro-circulation.




Stay Rooted an Initiative by L'Oreal

‘Stay Rooted’ is all about remembering your roots and knowing that whatever you are today is because of your roots. It's about taking time out to thank and appreciate people, things, places etc. from your past that have made you "You". 


Your roots are the main reason for your strength. 


Who would you like to thank if you had a chance to go back in time?




As for me : I would like to Thank my parents for who I am and who I have became, and I would like to Thank my Brother for teaching me how to read....(why didn't anyone teach me how to spell though?!)

Esha Deol's little sisters got Engaged

Esha Deol's little sister Ahana got engaged last week!
(Do we have any other celebrity weddings this year?!)

Happy Birthday Blog!!




A Letter to YOU

The blog turns 1 today.

A year back I was a Bride-to-be and I started this blog as a much needed place to put my thoughts.
I was in-between jobs when my marriage got fixed and taking up a new job right before the wedding made no sense, so I decided to take a break and concentrate all my energy into planning the perfect wedding.

I must tell you that I have this nasty habit of researching things to the depth, and like any tech-savvy girl the internet was my library. With 3 months into the wedding planning I had gathered so much information about things-to-do, shopping must haves, skin-care, hair-care, etc. that I needed a place to put it all.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Born and brought up in Ahmedabad. Graduated as a design student of NIFT in 2010 from Mumbai she immediately left for her hometown Ahmedabad where she came across her mother's paintings and the impact of direct contact with abstract art was such that she began to simplify it in my own way. That's when the journey began...

So does this topic even belong here, well we should save money where ever we can, right?! ( so we can spend it while shopping on our honeymoon ;P )

So where should you save and where should you splurge?

Who is the Crazy Indian Bride?

Crazy Indian Wedding started as a distraction from all the wedding maddness. Once my wedding date was fixed I quit my job and spent all my time planning and getting ready for the BIGGEST day of my life!

The days leading upto the wedding I had just one project 'Mission Marriage' and hence the birth of of this blog. I gathered so much information that I decided to help the brides in need. Even though I tied the knot on 24th Nov. 2012 the blog continues and so does my mission to help Brides-to-be!

While I am not blogging, or thinking about what to blog, I sit down in my gold n pink studio and design for my recently launched label ROLI GAUR VASHISHT. You can find out more on its facebook page https://www.facebook.com/RoliGaurVashisht

And sometimes when I should really be either writing a blog post or working on a clients dress, I procrastinate and waste my time here : https://www.youtube.com/rgvLove

Makeup Artist! What? How? What is this?

Those of you who have been reading the blog would know I picked the first Makeup Artist I liked and I really don't regret it. I actually do recommend her to a lot of people, love the way she gives complete personal attention, helped me research styles and agreed to travel any where in Delhi/NCR (she travels to Chandigarh also sometimes)

The best part of the makeup was I got it done around 6pm on the wedding day and it stayed exactly the same till  6am  when I finally got around taking it off. The lipstick faded a tiny bit just before Phera's so that's around 2am but then I did eat a LOT.


I did however, miss out on the journey of finding a perfect MUA.

Please see the following articles from fellow bloggers to get yourself updated on MUA's! Its the one topic I cant help a lot on.
