Experiential shopping at PROJECT EVE

October 6, 2017

Hey buds 🙂

Catching up with you guys almost after a month. It has been a crazy ride last few days with Exhibitions raining in Chennai and fashion events around the city. One amazing launch was this Project Eve.

Project eve is a unique lifestyle shopping destination launched recently at the Phoenix Market City,Chennai marking its 3rd store in India. A one place stop for all you fashionistas and crazy shoppers to exhaust your love for Fashion.

They have wide sections ranging from Ethnic to Western and casuals. Sorry gentlemen, I do not remember seeing any of your related stuff 😜 But, do not miss to drop in to carry some amaze collections back home to your ladies.

The basic idea is to have an Experiential store and they have their in-house brands as well as the best of global brands like Juna Rose, Sain Tropez exclusively and other brands like W for Women, AND to pick a few. This store has aimed to be one of the finest store where women can come over to shop all that they want and chill down at a Cafe in store or a Salon to relax themselves. And, this time they succeeded in having a Salon inside the store where you can get your beauty services done too.(Smartest idea ever)

So, we tried to quickly create three looks under three ranges Festive/Ethnic, Party and Casual. And here goes my picks from the store.

•Festive/Ethnic

My first pick was this bright beautiful red kurti from (needless to say) W for Women at the Project Eve store. Paired it up with a red palazzos and a golden clutch for the festive vibe. Simple yet loved the class this kurti gave to the whole look.

•Party Wear

I chose to go with a floral digital print pleated skirt with a chic grey tops from AND; loved the sleeves of the top adding glam to the whole look effortlessly. Picked up a bold black heels from the rack and twirled away in this look.

•Casual Evening wear

Not with any second thought, my hands went straight down to this long black gown with a blue lace detailing on the top. Never say no to black is the mantra I follow, and Styled it with nothing much but just a pretty bag from COVA. Loved how this look turned casual for a dinner or for a weekend hang out with friends and family.

Had a great time picking outfits from Project Eve and loved the experience out there, And did I not mention about the salon.. yeah ! It was BOUNCE where you can have your beauty services done relaxingly after a generous shopping.

Thank you lovelies for taking time to read this blog post. Share your valuable feedback in the comments below or in my social media handle. Would love to catch up with you all ASAP 😘

Rejuvenated with VURVE

August 23, 2017

Hey lovelies, Hope this post finds you all at your best health. This blog post is something that is more close to my heart, and Of course who does not something that is relaxing and rejuvenating.

I was recently invited over to Vurve Salon, Chamiers road to experience few of their services. I chose to go with Body Spa, Signature Pedicure and Kerastase Hair ritual. How did I dream to spend one whole day at my favorite salon, relax back and enjoy the  pampering. Ah! 😌 Everybody needs such breaks, right.

If you had ever been to Vurve, needless to say how best they are at hospitality. If you have not tried them yet, do drop in to get the best salon services around Chennai.

•BODY SPA

Got one of their best therapist on board and she made sure I was super comfortable and enjoyed a relaxing body spa for an hour followed by steam and shower. I wish I had touch and feel option in my blog post to let you guys know how soft my skin felt after the spa (ha-ha😂)

•SIGNATURE PEDICURE

Again by the best in town was I pampered with for an amazingly soothing pedicure session. Cleansing my feet, deep massage, pack and followed by their signature pedicure techniques. Clearly one of the best pedicure I’ve received so far.

Their lower level for Pedicure, Manicure and massage rooms.

•KERASTASE FUSIO-DOSE HAIR RITUAL

Little did I know I was going through a complete makeover and loved every bit of the after ritual. Kerastase tailor-made hair spa is done by examining  your hair carefully with the help of a diagnosing camera which shows results of how your hair’s structure, density, dandruff or scalp dryness. After the examination, the hair spa is customised according to what is needed for your type of hair and particular products are used. My hair was almost fine and I had a little dryness alone for which I was treated accordingly, followed by steam and a relaxing head massage, hair wash and blow dry (Ta-daa) Just felt like a complete makeover done while asleep! Look at the results down. Video links provided.

Clothes for every occasion Ft. DIVA

July 14, 2017

It’s a known myth that a woman shops her heart out and needless to say that her heart skips a beat every time she sees an amazing piece in the rack, dancing away in its beautiful colours, design and patterns. We always dream to shop without the fear of finding another better piece than the one we picked already, don’t we? We need the best no matter what our price range is. A quick fix is here-DIVA.

Diva is one of the very famous outlets in Chennai which has more than two branches with lakhs of collections suitable for every occasion and falling under each of your taste and budget. “There’s a choice for everyone who comes in with any mindset”. From college kurtis to official wears, from designer sarees to silk ranges, from fancy suits to bridal lehengas; stop and shop at one point.

One Pitch Catch had recently collaborated with Diva and had a fun shoot at their store. Below are few collections from their party/occasion wear.

#Look1

This beautiful one piece gown is a best choice for Reception nights, twirl away in these pastels with stunning jewels and what more you need? Just smile away in this beautiful turquoise piece with peach dupatta(Ah! That gold intricate detailing).

#Look2

That’s my favourite of the lot. Love for the color or for the pattern or the make, not sure ! But this is perfect for Sangeets, Mehendi functions where you can dance and rock in style with this beautiful pink skirt with golden thread work and the top is something very different; it is a golden sleeveless blouse attached with a cape that falls down as if a duppata but it’s not. I would definitely pick this if I’m going for a sangeet night.

#Look3.

This gorgeous black gown with heavy golden thread and designer work in the neck is a for sure “Look out the lady in black” types. The sleek pattern, the blouse material and the waist line with satin tie and a perfect princess cut in the lower with beautiful layers and the border touch same as to the blouse is the best finish. Those who love wearing black will sure not miss this piece of elegance.

#Look4.

This lehenga suit is a true head turner. Check out the blouse’s neck detailing and the cut; deep V cut in the neck and a slit open in the hip area makes the blouse extraordinarily beautiful. An Unusual colour anybody could pick for an occasion and the heavily patterned skirt is best for Wedding nights, they would look lovely under the lights.

Thank you for taking time in reading this. My best team without which it would have been just another shoot.

Dont you need sometime for yourself ? Giving the best you can to your body and mind-A definite Yes !

Have you ever thought what would you do if you were not let to do work for your own good ? You were not given that equal status you yearned for. That one day you are aimlessly waiting to achieve something in your life. Don’t you need a break to put them altogether and hit it with your attitude.

Elixir Therapy :: #GetFitWithVlcc

June 23, 2017

Hey all ❤️

Would like to take this space for a few minute read to share my recent experience with VLCC,Chennai on their new ELIXIR THERAPY.

As we all know VLCC is not just a beauty corner but also a Wellness centre, We often misinterpret it to Slimming centre which is not, they call it wellness-being fit in a healthy way. Elixir therapy was an advanced technique of the same which had been in market for few a months. What is different on Elixir to normal weight loss programme is their efficiency in loosing up to more than 10cms or even up to 15cms in one session and weight coming down by 400-800gms (depends on the body type).

 

I was first briefed about their wellness section and their programmes, techniques their advanced machines and their fitness rule which is •Programme+Diet+Workout• which is essential to not gain back the weight you lost in your session or even after you complete your programme. I was attended by a well equipped staff who took me to their Massage/Wellness room and gave me some more information as to what was going to happen for the next 3 hours.

The session started off by taking my body measurements from neck to toe and continued with a brilliant massage  (hard or medium) according to your comfort-I chose hard massage and it went upto an hour from head to toe which was indeed relaxing and need not mention a good massage means a good sleep. I slept straight one hour and it was followed by a PEBBLE massage the famous YIN YANG-those pebble stones which has the properties to neutralise our levels inside our body i.e it reduces our negative energy and makes it positive. (Now, this is something new-right?) and the pebbles were dipped in hot running water and were rubbed on the entire body which was even more soothing  (For those who like Hard massage). After which I was thoroughly scrubbed with a powder that is meant to cleanse away impurities or rather detox our body. Followed by taking a steam or heat bed and finally was the technology part which was administered on the part specifically you wanted to see difference or loose weight – I choose tummy and the machine had to run over my tummy for about 15 minutes-which had a sucking effect on the skin which will cause some bearable pain because of the skin pulling. It would disappear once the machine is removed, though.

Now that the entire session is completed ✅ and your measurements are again taken where you can see some tremendous magic on your body- I had found inch loss of more than 15cms on the whole and I lost around 450 gms in one session which is pretty good. That was indeed a good session to have attended. Customization of programmes can be made accordingly to body types, their BMI chart and other levels of Fat, Water etc.

Thank You VLCC for having me over to try yout amazing Elixir Therapy-Inch loss and weight loss programme.
