LESS TALKING MORE PINK


What I'm Wearing : Sajeda crop top, Stylefiesta.com accessories 
Featuring : Loreal La Vie En Rose Collection

My obsession with pink goes a long way back. It started with pink roller blade sneakers somewhere around being 10 (we all remember that fad) to babydoll dresses in college, a pink and black bedroom, ofcourse the 'rose' representation in my swanky phone and now this set of 12 gorgeous lipsticks from L'oreal.

My entire office underwent a unified 'OMG' moment when I unwrapped the La Vie En Rose collection box. Let me dwell on 'unified' because there literally is a pink color for everyone in this collection. My favorite colors from this range are J’Lo, Doutzen, Liya, and Blake. I think it just helps when lipsticks are gorgeous to look at even before you apply them. Kind of like a treat to the eyes. Oh, and lips.

Worked with a different pattern with my outfit planning process where for the first time ever, my look was based on my lipstick. Keeping up with the pulse of the campaign, 'a state of bliss when everything around you is beautiful', I went with a skirt and crop that genuinely emitted happiness in my closet. My crop top actually comes with a lehenga buts its pintucked detail with a pastel canvas worked like a magic as a contrast to my bright lip. And the flouncy floral skirt turned up the playful quotient instantly.

AL ABOUT BIOLAGE


Matrix's Biolage range has been one of my favorite hair care solutions since a long long time. Only with this re-launch, they are working with new formulas and but ofcourse, a more modernized look, focusing on understanding the biology of hair, offering targeted answers for every hair concern.

Matrix is introducing its 'Biomatch Technology' for the first time, an innovative formula approach backed by the secrets of nature. Each product in their range is formulated with particular botanical ingredients that are matched to address certain hair concerns. Some products are targeted towards smooth frizz free hair or maintaining colored hair or reducing hair breakage and so on. One of the hair concerns I personally face is that my hair tends to get very dry, very quickly. Almost the day after I wash my hair, my hair feels limp and withered at the ends and I have been looking for a solution for this for a while now. Naturally, I picked the Ultra HydraSource product packed with Aloe Vera - a moisture-rich plant, known to lock-in water, and deeply hydrate locks.

Along with the launch of their shampoo and conditioner, Matrix is also keeping immense on their collection of professional BIO-SPA & OIL-SPA treatments that use natural botanicals to address everyday hair concerns. These can be experienced at a Matrix salon near you: http://on.fb.me/1fas3IJ

#MakingWomenGirlsAgain REPUBLIC DAY EDITION


Brave women make a brave generation. 

We found real heroes on the streets of Mumbai, who proved that beauty has ceased to be a one dimensional word. That amazing group of women out there who've made the brave decision of picking to play the role of protectors as a choice of occupation. The Women Police Force. 

We, as Style Fiesta, decided to get down on the streets and hand out our Sunglasses to these local heroes for the long hours they spend in the scorching sunlight. We wanted to make a connection, through style and just the tiniest bit of empathy, all along instilling what our brand stands for - making fashion accessible to all. We wanted to help them look stylish in the simplest possible way, at the same time make them feel more confident in what they do and #MakeWomenGirlsAgain - even if it was for a mere 10 minutes. 

From being confused to being skeptical to being happy to being overjoyed, we loved the reactions we got from these women and here's a small glimpse of how I, along with my team, spent our Republic Day. It was an obstacle getting them to be photographed but just being able to distribute over a 100 sunglasses, watching them smile the way they did above, was an experience I'll always hold close to my heart.

HAIR CONFESSIONS #GUILTY


What I'm Wearing - Mango Jeans, Vintage Cape, StyleFiesta.com Sunglasses & Jewellery

The Reason 
I was invited over to the Kérastase Hair & Scalp Institute last week to give in my 'hair confession'. After a couple of long guilty minutes of rummaging through the long list of unruly things we do to our hair, I finally confessed to two things. I don't use a conditioner after my shampoo. And I tend to comb my hair when it's wet.

Lets face it - we're all guilty when it comes to our hair. We misuse it, mistreat it and don't always give it the attention it needs. Some common worries we have are over-colouring, over-processing, blow drying without a heat protectant, not cutting our hair regularly and well, the list is pretty long. But now what? Now that the damage is done and we've reached the acceptance phase, how can we make it better from here on?

The Solution
Kerastase has recently launched the 'Resistance Therapiste' range, equipped with the power of an unique plant to give our damaged hair the hope of a 'second life'. The possibility of complete renewal of damaged hair. A second chance to revive our hair, despite any treatment we might have done to it. 
The range consists of Bain Thérapiste, priced at INR 2200, Masque Thérapiste, priced at INR 3000 and Serum Thérapiste, priced at INR 2,000.

The Ingredient (My favorite part)
Myrothamnus Flabellifolia, a vascular climbing part that grows in the worlds most arid regions is a resurrection plant that has the unique ability to come back to life (by getting in touch with water) after undergoing a near death state. Now imagine the result of the exact same process when applied to our hair. Pretty magical right?

My Experience
There are two rituals in the range that you can indulge in, to give your hair a second life. The Keratherapy Ritual (75 minutes) is an exclusive heat activated protocol designed to compensate for the loss of keratin and reconstruct hair fibre and the Split End Sealing Ritual (20 minutes) is the 1st split ends sealing Ritual by Kérastase that instantly repairs the hair fibre & heals and seals damaged ends. 
I personally tried the Keratherapy Ritual at the Kérastase Hair & Scalp Institute and it was amazing. I took some quick photos after the treatment to show you guys how my hair looked (and feeled)! It felt super silky, exceptionally bouncy and most importantly - healthier.

You can get your hands on the Kérastase Résistance Thérapiste range at any one of their 200+ salons across India. Find the one nearest to you :
