Fresh! L'OCCITANE launches Rose Et Reines Collection this May

L'Occitane en Provence launches Rose et Reines this May

     Provence holds many secrets and legends of which the passer-by is often unaware. The daughters of the Count of Forcalquier were as beautiful as the roses they cherished – the Grasse rose, the Bulgarian rose, the Moroccan rose and the Turkish rose. Each one of these daughters married a king, and so it was that Marguerite, Eléonore, Sancie and Béatrix became the four Queens of Forcalquier. Their favorite roses fragrances inspired the Rose collection, with subtle and complementary scents, for every woman.

Sampling new treats at Smoke Shack

Smoke Shack

Smoke Shack Restaurant, Park Plaza Hotel, Kolkata

     Smoke Shack is an open air restaurant located on the rooftop of Park Plaza hotel in the heart of Kolkata. I was very surprised to find such a good hotel and amazing food joint located mere minutes from my residence. They have a gorgeous infinity pool and a lovely view! I can go and sit there for hours just for the view is very soothing to look over the city line sitting beside the pool. They have special aqua exercise classes scheduled for summers in case any one is interested :) We were called in for lunch and coz it was very hot we had to shift to another restaurant of the hotel so couldn't enjoy the beautiful Smoke Shack in its full splendor. But it would be great spot for a dinner date as towards evening a lovely breeze is blowing and it becomes very pleasant...

Travel 2.0 (The digital future)


     My parents were avid travelers for a good part of their lives. Not a vacation went by where we would be sitting at home twiddling our thumbs! Plans were made well in advance and the tickets pre-booked. Mum would start packing the bags a week before and the moment the school vacation would start that we would set off on our adventure. Some of my fondest childhood memories consist of these times - traveling by train, going up winding roads, roaming the streets of a new city and munching on different kinds of food. Dad would be armed with his maps and guides ensuring a smooth and hassle free trip for his family while my mother would be manning the luggage especially the food basket. She would ensure that snacks and water were always at hand as a "just in case" kind of precaution.

     ILEX London celebrated its first anniversary recently and few of us were invited to attend. They opened their first store here in Kolkata a year back and will soon be opening more across the country. They deal in luxury leather bags and accessories. The brand aims to fill the gap between the mid and high end with prices starting around 5k. They launched their summer collection in the presence of Bengali actress Arpita Chatterjee. Usually summer collections are filled with the predictable bright colors or pastels. But ILEX had a very interesting mix going on. There were some muted as well deep dark tones in the collection...

Michael Todd Ageless Face And Neck Cream Price $95

     Skin wise this was one of the toughest winters that I had to face. My face was dessert dry and none of my regular creams were doing me any good. I even switched to oil based serums and skin oils but still didn't get any relief! And to top it off I ended up breaking out!!! Can you even begin to imagine that? Dry painful skin with breakout and rash on it. I mean how does something like that even be possible?!? Even my favorite foundation couldn't give me the dewy looking skin that I loved it for. Thankfully I came across 2 products which helped me get a hold on the situation and return my skin to normal. Just in time too for my first film shoot :) I will review the product that helped me with my breakout/rash situation in another post. Here I will talk about the cream which helped to heal my skin and make it look "ageless"
