Back in time...

Have you ever gone back in time? 

Today you will, lets see some of the celebrities and how they've evolved over time. Thanks to articles and pictures by Vogue, I knew I had to share this with you'll and do a compiled post of some of the best and not so great looks from back in time. Let us rewind the time clock. Ready? Set? Go. 


1. Drew Barrymore

February 1983
Can you believe it? This little kid is Drew Barrymore and this was at the Academy Awards and she was five. Imagine how she feels now walking the red carpet, she's been doing it forever. She wore this pink tiered dress. I have nothing else to say but that she's a star. 

December 1990
This was at a party. I completely love the polka dotted top, miss fashion forward. This was the same year she entered rehab for drug abuse. Red lip colour certainly suits her. 

April 1997
Can you believe it, this was at the premiere of scream? I personally think the gown doesn't suit her body colour, or maybe its because of the screaming mouth? However I like her shoes. 

June 2003
At the Charlie's Angels 2 premiere. Again, I'm not quite fond of this look. Something about it spells weird. A bad weird. Orange danglers? Messy hair? Scary makeup? And what's with the way she wore her suit?

April 2005
At the Boston premiere of Fever Pitch. I love the strapless gown, I think it does her a good deal!  Also love the hairdo and the earrings. Over all a fantastic look! 

January 2009
At the Golden Globe in a John Galliano strapless gown she looks wonderful. Something so calm about this look. Very classy and I love the colour. 

January 2010
At the Screen Actors Guild Awards she looks mind blowing in this Monique Lhuillier number, don't you think? The colour just goes with her skin tone so well and the hair looks pretty good too. I definitely love it!

2. Beyonce 

September 2000
Destiny's Child at the MTV awards. I am sorry Beyonce but this just spells disaster, what were you thinking? They look like they jumped out of a jungle. 

July 2002
I think Beyonce didn't have a stylist back then, hence these weird outfits. I don't think the gown does anything for her. Maybe it is just the hair that doesn't look good on her, the colour. 

September 2003
I really dig the hairdo in this look, I might just go ahead and try it myself. The colour is fine too, just eh design of the dress that's a little uncanny. But its better than her previous looks.

July 2004
I thought there won't be one picture which is decent, but finally. Ahoy! She wore this to the photocall of The Pink Panther. I really like the hair, earrings and the dress. However it is a little crinkled if you notice closely. But we can forgive that!

February 2005
This was at the Oscars with JayZ where she wore a strapless Versace. Best of her looks, not a fault. Wonderfully done! Love the jewelry and the gown, she looks rock-a-chic! 

January 2007
In a plush pink gown at the amFAR Gala Benefit. This is again beautiful, it does wonders for her body and her skin tone. I think she looks absolutely mind blowing! 

April 2009

The known stranger

She walked slowly, taking careful steps. Thinking about the day, running every scene in her head. She did this every single day on her way back from work, it was like a practice now. She was just a few miles away from her house and she couldn't stop thinking about how wonderful her day was. It was her birthday, and he colleagues had surprised her with a cake from the best patisserie in town, and they'd even gotten her the loveliest of gifts. Though she wasn't much of a celebration girl, they'd made her feel special. And that was all that mattered.

And as all these thoughts flew in her mind, she was unaware that someone crept behind her walking along, taking the same steps, going unnoticed. As she smiled to herself, the stranger began executing his plan. He began walking faster and pulling his hood over his face and setting his mask in position he grabbed her hand and twisted her.

She was in shock, she turned to see the white masked stranger with a hood. He pulled out a pocket knife and slit her hand. A loud cry was heard but as lonely as the street was, everyone was asleep. She struggled and pushed against his masculinity but all in vain. He pulled her to the ground and ripped her apart, piece by piece. But she never gave up, getting up again and trying to run away. But she fell to the ground and found herself in a pool of blood.

He hissed and gave a wicked laugh pushing the knife away and pulling out a gun. She cried and begged to be left alone but he was ruthless. He kicked her aside and got his gun ready. She slithered towards a shimmery object that lay behind him, trying to be as subtle as possible. He turned towards her and was about to pull the trigger when she stood up with all the mustered strength and pulled off his mask.

On seeing the person behind the mask, she almost felt nauseous but wasting a minute not, she took out the shimmery object from her back and pierced it through his chest and he fell.

The fall was thunderous and loud and huge thud was heard as he hit the ground. She cried her soul, but alas she could never get rid of the look on his face. It would haunt her for years she knew. The physical wounds were painful, but not as much as the emotional ones. Her heart felt a pain mightier than any other.

But she walked. She held the railings, the wall and walked. And kept walking, because this was not the end. It was just the beginning of a lifetime. A lifetime of experiences that she won't let go of. 

This was not a surrender, it was a fight. 

And in the distance she heard a buzzing sound of vehicles.

Tangerine Mixer.

Yes. Two posts. One day. I have completely lost it. Well you might as well soak in the abundance of my posts because I really don't know how things will be when college starts. So as of now I am on a posting high. 

Anyhow, for this one I actually realized the dire importance of a camera and a photographer. I mean I had to click my own pictures. And how difficult is that without a tripod and SLR. When your camera gives you hazy pictures and what not. Why can't someone gift me with an SLR. So warning all of you, please do excuse me this time for the lack of pictures, also for blurry pictures. 

Moving on.

---

Tangerine has been making the rounds this year because it is indeed a brilliant colour, and it might just become the colour of the year. I love the colour but I am not a fan of how it looks on me. Instead of going the usual way with one tangerine piece or an entire tangerine I decided to play with colours today. So every thing I am wearing has a bit of the colour on it. 

From the necklace to the slippers, they all have tangerine somewhere or the other. 

About this look:

This look according to me spells summer all over. With May coming to an end I thought it was ideal to pull out my summer outfits and bid goodbye to summer till next year. You've seen this skirt in my first ever style/outfit post and hence it does have a lot of sentimental value. HERE

What I did was, paired clashing prints with colliding colours to work this look. That's something you must always remember. When pairing various prints try and get a colour in them that's in unison, in order to make it work. This skirt has the most brilliant prints and I got it for a great price too. The top is cotton, floral and perfect for the summer. I went with a high pony tail to end the look. Added a colourful necklace, bangles and a chunky antique ring. Also wore my favourite comfy flats. 

The best part about skirts like this is that they can be worn by almost everyone, from XS to XXL. We all can wear it and look equally stylish. Last time I wore it as a low waisted skirt but this time tried a high waist, that's the versatility of this piece. 

The tangerine is visible in the flowers of the top, triangles of the skirt, ring, beads of the necklace, bangles and my slippers too. Which I couldn't get a click, sorry. 

Now time to head over and have a look at the outfit. 






Top: Commercial Street, Bangalore
Skirt: Thrifted
Bangles: Boutique
Necklace: Fashion Street, Mumbai
Slippers (not visible) : Head Over Heels

The next time you decide to wear tangerine keep the following tips in mind:

1. Since the colour is bright in itself, try pairing it with subtle and milder colours first. 
2. Always remember, no one stops you from experimenting. Try mixing contrasting colours and go bold with colour blocks. Tangerine goes with most colours like pink and red. 
3. When opting for tangerine pants always go with a light coloured top. If you are wearing a darker coloured top then minimal accessorizing. 
4. You could wear tangerine in small ways like I did and still rock the trend. Try getting all pieces in the colour and have fun with it. 
5. Walk in style and you'll look fabulous. 

Don't forget to tell me what you thought of this different way of wearing a single colour and incorporating it in your outfit entirely. Leave a comment, or send an email. 

Love,
Sonshu

I am submitting this post for InFB Remix: Tangerine

Thanks for all the lovely response, if you have something to suggest or say, tell me and I'll get back to you. 

Music Monday et all. - 3

Hello awesomest people. 

Its that time of the week again where we talk music. First of all I am extremely happy. One because IPL is over. No more cricket crap on my TL. Two because KKR actually won. I support them because they're SRK's team. I just had to say this, so if you want, ignore it. 

Also I now have embedded comments on the blog so as to encourage replying. LOL. Basically makes it easy to reply to your comments. 

----

This week has been pretty musical in terms of it, because I've had lots of time on my hands and discovered some new artists and music. However, I will be sharing two of them with you today.

1. Kelly Clarkson- Dark Side


Kelly Clarkson has always been one to give some powerful songs. And this one was just as much. I was literally left crying at the end of the song, the concept is brilliant. Her eyes, speak a million words and the video has been shot beautifully. There's something heart touching about this song. Its so practical, the song. It talks about how everyone has a dark side, and how people aren't perfect. I just love the message.

You will love it if you delve in and seek to understand the hidden meaning. A must listen to be inspired. 

You can watch the official video here. Below I have attached the video with lyrics because they are indeed wonderful.



2. Radio Killer- Lonely Heart


Discovering this song was by chance.


I believe this song is perfect for an after breakup scene, playing in the background. Its so sad and dark yet wonderful. The band has an amazing talent and I've been listening to a lot of their songs after this. You should too, they have a lot of potential. Radio Killer released their first in Sept 2009 and after that they've been doing the rounds for their different approach to music. 

Here's a glimpse of the lyrics.

The memory of you
Still lingers on
And our song is playing in my head on and on
My world is black and white baby now that you're gone
I've started to think I'll be forever







So those were the songs in store for today. The songs to our inbox feature is currently hibernating because I am a bit caught up with work and posting on the blog is just about appropriate. So you will be seeing a lot of posts as I am doing a lot of writing, honing my skills.

Also today I bring to you Picture Day.

Every month we'll have a day or two where I'll post some of the pictures from my instagram account if you aren't on it or on twitter. So here goes.

Pictures from my INSTAGRAM- Sonshusi (Catch me on instagram)





      

So yes, I do food, shoes, nails, ootd and what not. Instagram has totally become an obsession now. Love it. 


Till next time, 

Keep it musical. 

Love,
Sonshu

Is this creative or weird?

Fashion has always been different and dynamic. Never stagnant, always re-inventing. However we have seen some crazy moments when its come to the runway. Be it outrageous or super lovable, we've almost seen it all, and there's more to come. With artists like Lady Gaga and Rihanna experimenting with the most extreme types of attire and looks, we do have celebs like K-Stew who sometimes wear disastrous outfits. But at the end it all adds up to the Fashion scene making the best and worst and giving scope for invention. 

In this post, I basically want to show you'll some of the most creepy and distinct fashion that I've come across. I will be giving my feedback about the fashion and what you have to do is this. In the comment section at the end of the post, write the name of each look and write: Creepy, So-So or Fabulous according to what you feel about the look.

1. Cards on clothes

Let me warn you. This dress showcased at the 'Ashish Show' during the London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2009 was weird. In fact the day I saw it I went: HAW? I mean, who would wear this? Maybe someone would. But let me tell you, this is one of the most subtle dresses out of all that are yet to come. In fact its pretty normal compared to the rest.

Rating: So- So


2. Breakfast on the Runway
This look by Agatha Ruiz De La Prada is nothing but weird. The headband is probably a piece of load and  the dress is a table mat with eggs on it? Really? What was the designer thinking? While people may say it is really bold, I think it is outrageously annoying. In fact I couldn't even look at it after a while. I actually like the hair and makeup but so not digging the breakfast on clothes look. 
Rating: Creepy

catwalk fashion, weird catwalk fashion, weird, catwalk


3. Marilyn Inspired Tangerine

While we all the the famous Marilyn Monroe fluttering dress story, this dress was probably inspired by it.
Seen at the Agatha Ruiz De La Prada show at Madrid Fashion Week in 2009, it was called Anti Gravity.
While I'm completely loving the earrings and the sunglasses, I totally detest the dress. Maybe something a little more different probably?

Rating: Creepy

4. Over the Hat
This look spotted at the Viaduct Harbour Village Marine show during the Air NZ Fashion week has blown me away. With being absolutely WEIRD.

Rating: Creepy

5. MJ is here

Jean-Charles de Castelbajac displayed this in their collection during Fall 2009. Much creepy 3D?

Rating: Creepy

6. Celebrities take the name

Some of the weird looks contributed by celebrities. Some celebs like Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj like experimenting and they actually have stepped out for major events in some of the weirdest dresses of all time. Here's a recap of some of the most controversial.

Grammy 2012:

Sasha Gradiva's pink gown would have otherwise been bearable if it wasnt for the machine gun arm piece that's just creepy and attention seeking.

Bonnie McKee actually carried the colour off well, however there's something weird about the dress.

 Nicki Minaj wore this custom made Versace and reminded everyone of Gaga. I have nothing to say about this outfit.

Fergie's see through Gaultier was the most talked about with hi-5s and low-5s. I personally loved the colour, hated the dress.

Robyn wore this mullet keeping trends in mind however I don't like how she wore it. On the other hand, stunner shoes.

Rating: Creepy

7. Lady Gaga

When someone says weird and fashion, anyone automatically connects Gaga to it and she'll probably love them for it. So here's some of Gaga's craziest and funkiest looks ever.

She wore this look at the VMAs and honestly it reminds me of a bird's nest. I think it is OTT and maybe the cuffs are brilliant but the head gear is a no no

Rating: Creepy



She wore this Red outfit to the VMA too as one of her changes. I love the head gear actually, but why cover her face?

Rating: Creepy



Now this look is absolutely beautiful. I think the whole structure defines her body very well, the shoulders look fab. Also the hair is brilliant. And the black nail colour. But the shades look like the ones people wear after cataract. However we can ignore that right?

Rating: Fabulous


This next outfit is something only she would be able to carry off. In fact I can't imagine anyone else looking good in it. I love the bow hair and how she's kept it relatively simple. One of her sanest outfits. Brilliance in black.

I can't look at this next outfit. Really can't. Its disgusting me already. Seriously? I have nothing to say. Except I will have nightmares tonight.

Rating: Creepy


That was a summary of some weird outfits that we have seen all over the place. But I think if I was to do all of them it'll take me an entire blog to do it. So I'll stop here.

But remember, I'd love to know what you thought of each outfit, after all we all are different.

Be back soon with more.

Love,
Sonshu



P.S: THANKS FOR THE BRILLIANT COMMENTS on the previous post: The Sacred Letter. Will be replying to them soon.

P.P.S: Thanks for your kind wishes for the results, I am overwhelmed and really happy that I got distinction. :) Thanks to everyone for being so supportive.

P.P.P.S: Outfit post coming soon.

Sorry for the plenty after post messages, just that I wanted the post to be all about the topic.

Love again.

The Sacred Letter.


Disclaimer: Any resemblance to persons dead or alive is coincidental. All characters are fictional.


Love, 


I held my breath, waiting to see your face. In all truth I'd not only imagined how this moment would be, I'd also gone over the possible scenarios over a hundred times. When you appeared it took a moment to actually digest the fact that I was seeing you. You were nothing like my head had made you look like. In fact you were a lot more than I thought you'd be. Smiling, you walked towards me. What amazed me was the fact that you recognized me? We'd never met, or even exchanged pictures but you still spotted me amidst the five hundred something people walking back and forth in the station. You stood in front of me and it was like a dream. I could hardly believe that you were actually real. I'd begun to think that you were a figment of my imagination. 
And then you took my hands in yours and held it firmly and then we walked for what seemed like forever. 

That was how I remembered our first meeting. You were always exceptionally dream like. Your walk reminded me of a bird flying in the sky. Your smile was like a zillion candles lit. But most of all your heart was as clean as an ocean beyond the space. But above all of that, you were 'human' (As I define it: A person with a mind, heart and soul.). Probably the kindest I've seen, the warmest ever, the most helpful and that is what had me head over heels in love with you. This may seem unbelievable to read but it is what I felt every minute that I spent with you. 

I could never forget the times you've protected me from the storm and the evil. You've fought for me with the best and the worst. Told me certain secrets, enlightened me about facts. You were my everything, literally. Because I had nothing left otherwise. I'm really sorry I couldn't give us the kid we'd dreamed of for years together. We tried. I tried, but it was not meant to be. However I must say that you've always been the husband any wife would ever want. Understanding and supportive are some of the slightest adjectives I could use, because you were something a lot more than words itself. 

I can see you crying and I won't stop you because I would have too. Its the love we had for each other. This may seem cliche to an onlooker but I don't care, after all we always lived for ourselves. You told me every single night, holding me in your arms that I won't need to work. But I'm sure you understand my love for it and that all I had before you was my work, giving it up wasn't an option. In spite of the dangers it involved, I never felt threatened. Until 2 weeks back. I didn't think it was a good idea to tell you about it. We told each other everything, almost. But this I couldn't bear telling you, because I knew you'd go after them. The ones sending me threatening messages and the ones calling home leaving blank calls. But that would come in the way of my work. I had to expose their identity, and even if it meant sacrifice. Now, they are probably in the hands of the police and that's good right? Please tell me I did the right thing? I know you might have thought it was stupid that I went after someone who threatened to kill me, but I did it for a cause. It was me or 1000 other people. 

If you are reading this letter, I'm no more. But it was meant to be, because sacrificing yourself for a state you love is nothing cowardly. In fact I'm sure you are proud of me. I won't tell you to move on because I know you can't. I won't tell you to go to work tomorrow, because I know you can't. I won't tell you to stay in the same apartment, because I know you can't. But all I ask is that you hold yourself tight because I believe you can. 

Honey, you have made life worthwhile and death worthwhile too. You have been the rock I've fallen on and gotten support, the one I reached out for when I needed a shoulder to cry on and above all you've been my dear lover and husband. And to that I owe this letter. To my soul. To you. 

I won't say I'll love you forever because it seems forever does not exist. But I will say: 'I loved you yesterday, love you today and will love you tomorrow.' 

Take care.

Your beloved wife.

A different 'Happily ever after'

source: weheartit

As kids, we are made to believe many things. Whether that’s “Santa gives you a gift if you are a good child” or “And she lived happily ever after”. But when we grow up and start living on our own terms do we actually realize that most of the things we read or are told as kids hardly exist in the realm that we live in. Or rather, we were told certain things just to protect us from the bitter reality of it.

Parenting skills are not in question here, but the society as a whole and the thought that as children one should believe everything is happy and there is no sorrow in the world. It is hard to understand how we expect these very children to battle out their problems as they grow up. How can we face our problems if we weren’t exposed to them ever?

But then again another question is popped: ‘Who is the society?’ and the truth is that we are the society and are wholly responsible for the fact that even today, with all the problems that the world is going through, we still tell children that ‘happy endings always exist’!

So you might be rolling your eyes, assuming that I’m just a cynical person but the fact is that this not cynicism but reality, it is the world as it is on paper. We have all these fairytale movies for children and books and something that’s common to all of them is that they begin with ‘Once upon a time’ and end with ‘Happily ever after’ and of course they talk of white horses, charming and valiant princes, beautiful pretty haired princesses and cruel people who come in the way of supposed true love. But who prepares children who read all this for the fact that maybe their ‘Prince’ might just leave them one fine day, or maybe they won’t have a ‘white horse’?

I think that if we prepare ourselves for what might come and think that we are capable enough to deal with the worst then even if it doesn’t come along we’ll be strong enough to face it. Because who actually knows what’s going to happen tomorrow?

Often, when I watch such movies, I am overwhelmed and sometimes get carried away but then I am struck with a thought that none of that is real. To talk about it, I used to be one of those fairytale believing people, called myself a princess and all that, but looking at it now I just find it humourous.

What I am trying to say is that: ‘In life we don’t just have brilliant people and cruel people. What about the normal people? The friend, the driver, the vegetable vendor, the security guard, the teacher, the person who unknowingly gave you important advice etc…Why don’t movies talk about them? Why is it that we are made to believe a certain thing when life can throw completely different coloured oranges at you?
Maybe we should start telling children different stories, stories which aren’t false hopes, but folk tales, and tales of our today.

Life is not about sitting on a high tower waiting to be rescued by some hot looking guy. It is about living it on your terms, struggling, getting through exams, difficulties, break ups, fights and still reaching the heights you wish to. THAT I believe is the ‘Happily ever after’ we talk about. 


Maybe we are talking about the wrong 'Happy Endings', we just have to change our way of looking at things right?

You deserve to live!

How many times do we hear that people commit suicides. Everyday we see cases of suicidal deaths because one is not emotionally strong enough to deal with problems they are facing. 

Know anyone who is facing personal issues or basically needs someone to talk? Someone to turn to for help? Someone to ask if they are on the right track? 

Here is where SAHAI comes into force. Read on to know what they do. 


Activity: Started on 2nd Oct 2002, SAHAI is Bangalore's telephone helpline for people in emotional distress. (25497777)

 Our dedicated, trained volunteer counsellors are available to answer your calls between 10.00 a.m. & 6.00 p.m., from Monday through to Saturday. All calls are confidential and privacy is assured. Whether it is facing problems with your family, in school, at work or with your friends,Sahai Counsellors will give you their undivided attention and will guide you. And, when you're ready, SAHAI will help you find a long-term solution to your problems, through telephone counselling.

Sahai volunteers will help and equip you with the skills,needed to cope with distressing situations of life like loss, failure, broken relationships or the ever-increasing demands of today's fast-paced life. SAHAI volunteers are homemakers, professionals and college students - people from all walks of life who are committed to saving lives. 

SAHAI volunteers undergo 30 hours of suicide prevention training conducted by professionals from NIMHANS and the Medico Pastoral Association, along with Rotary Bangalore East, three of the help line's founding partners. Volunteers are trained to help each caller ventilate, to respond without judging, and to guide the caller to address their problem. Volunteers learn how to listen pro-actively, and to recognize and assess signs of stress and depression.

They help people to change their lives and become happier and learn how to face their fears and problems. 

I've always wanted to work with such an NGO and SAHAI seems to be the perfect platform. Indeed I think writing this blogpost might make a change to someone's life out there. This is the least I could do. 

Their tagline is: Life. You're worth it! I absolutely love it! 

Love,
Sonshu

A shopping experience at Craftsvilla.

 Brilliant people of the world, hear me?

Craftsvilla Blog: Discover India's Unique Handmade & Handcrafted Items

Craftsvilla (craftsvilla.com) is an online retail store that exclusively sells Indian Handmade products online. As you know we had a giveaway in association with Craftsvilla a few days back, today I will be telling you about their website. A review of sorts, as to how the delivery etc is. 

The website also has features like: Discovering through craft, colour, price or shops. It also gives you a platform to showcase your handcrafted products if you are a retailer. 

When I had to choose something to get for myself I was rather thrown with many options. The products are plenty because of a variety of brands. The website is a host to a lot of brands that make these products all hand crafted and I was seriously in a fix as to what I should order, however I ended up getting a bag and a pencil pouch because I found them to be eternally cute. 

They have various things from home products to creams to jewelry, they seem to have mastered the art of having it all. Especially since everything is hand made it doubles up the love and the product becomes that much more lovely. You can find things from Rs 100 to Rs 5000 and more, so there's something for everybody's needs. Be it your father, mother or even your granny! 

I placed my order on May 11 and instantly received a mail regarding the order confirmation. The thing is, once you place an order it reaches the retailer of the particular product so when you order different things from different products they arrive at various timings. I placed my order with two different companies and hence one was sent on May 14 and one on May 16. I received both of them within 2 days of dispatch and I think that is pretty good right? Also, it was packed neatly and I must say I was pretty impressed with the quality of the products. 

Will be showing you the products in the future posts. :) 

Also usually things we see are different from how they are when we receive them but here it was exactly how I saw it when I ordered it, so that's a plus point! 

Pros: 

1. A variety of things to choose from for everyone
2. Price range is huge so you can definitely find something for your budget
3. Cash on Delivery is available! (for certain brands)
4. The courier service used is quite trustworthy and they delivered the products safely too. 
5. The products come neatly wrapped, hence no worry of breakage. 
6. All products are truly handcrafted and are actually worth every penny. 

Cons:

1. The products from different brands arrive at separate timings
2. COD is not available for all brands! 

So you see? 6 pros and 2 cons? What does that mean? We can pretty much ignore the cons right? This website is sure to go a long way because of their brilliant service. 

Rating: 4.5/6 :)
