Be my Valentine

It’s a coincidence that my due date is 14th Feb and I am hoping it turns out to be that day. Even though I won’t be able to venture out much, I still want to make it a special occasion.

Fine dining, night out, movie date seem to be some great options to spend the special day with your loved one. But who says you can’t have the same fun indoors? Here is how I intend to treat us special. I hope you will enjoy the idea of sweet treats in bed.

Final Pregnancy Update – 39 Weeks

pregancy blog the red notebook

So with only a week to go before the big date, the countdown is on. I thought it would be a good time to share my final thoughts with you. This time I am feeling a lot more relaxed as I know what to expect, and eagerly looking forward to the new phase in my life. Continue reading

Aashni + Co Wedding Show

The Red Notebook

Really excited to share this very special post with you all. Have to warn you that it is a long post but I had lots to share too! Last weekend I went to the most awaited Asian wedding show in London courtesy Aashni + Co. I think it’s probably the first time in London we had so many Indian fashion luminaries under one roof. I was in designer heaven – from top tier designers like Sabyasachi and Tarun Tahiliani to new emerging talent like Anushree Reddy and Arpita Mehta.

I have to say that the event was very grand. It presented high-end bridal and occasion wear to the UK audience. Continue reading

What I Wore: Baby Shower

Asian Indian Fashion Blog UK London

Few weeks back my friends hosted an intimate baby shower to welcome the new phase of our lives. I am thankful for the love and support I receive from my circle of friends, who are more like immediate family. Luckily it wasn’t a surprise for me so I had the time to plan my outfit. Continue reading

It’s my first blog post of the year. I have totally indulged myself during the holiday period and did nothing but just slowed down my pace. With only six weeks to go for my due date, there is a lot to organise and plan. I had envisaged that I will sort things out over the Christmas break but things didn’t go as per plan. Sometimes no plan is a good plan. So all I did over the holiday period was eat, drink and be merry. Continue reading

Aashni + Co Wedding Show 25th January 2015

Brides to be, get ready. UK welcomes first of its kind, high fashion Indian bridal exhibition and opportunity to meet the sub continent’s most lauded designers.

It was in 2012 when Aashni Shah recognised a huge void of access to Indian design outside of India. Aashni + Co was launched to introduce a wealth of Indian fashion talent to London. Aashni + Co has carved a niche for itself as one of London’s most sought after destinations for luxury Indian fashion, garnering attention from fashionistas and celebrities in the UK and Continental Europe alike.

Get Party Ready With Very

With the festive and party season rolling out, I wanted to feature a party list on the blog – your go to list to be party ready. For this blog post I want to feature Very.co.uk as a one-stop shop for this party season. Very’s party edit has everything you need to glam.

We all know that one of the best bits of any party is getting ready. Do keep one thing in mind: glamour. The secret is glitter, glam and shimmer. Going for glam doesn’t mean you have to play it safe. At this time of the year, it is totally socially acceptable to go all-out with a flamboyant outfit.

Here are a few of my favourite outfit options for this season.

1. Sparkle through the night – Opt for a sequin dress. If you are out for a special event or a night out with girls then do rock out wearing a sequin dress. Boasting glamorous appeal with sequin embellishment all over, these are some perfect party dresses from Very.

Todays’ post is another one in the series of maternity outfit posts that I intend to feature over the coming weeks. Maternity dressing needs to be comfy not frumpy. It took me a good few months to understand that. I will not deny the fact that dressing up has been very challenging, specially during the early months when you are neither here nor there. During these months I was totally dependent on my lovely cotton scarves. When you don’t want the world to know about your good news, then scarves are your go-to dressing option. Continue reading
