Summer of Valentine…

We love roses, we totally do… And we love fashion too, you know we do! However, not so often do we see a perfect marriage of both but you all get ready for a beautiful surprise as we both doll-up in outfits from the immensely talented designer Nitya Bajaj’s Valentine Collection where the red rose is truly the hero.

The cuts, fabrics, hues and designs truly reflect great modernity and chicness.

For both of us it was love at first sight as far as this collection was concerned as we totally fell for it the very first time we came across the stuff. Whether it was the gowns, dresses, jackets or the crop tops- we have been drooling over them all.

The post is even more special as after a very long time both of us have been captured together and that too in Germany’s cultural center- Berlin. Well, what makes it even more special is that the profound relationship of friendship too epitomizes love and we will always be each other’s Valentine. Hence, we reckon we are great ambassadors for this collection 😉

The wait is finally over, presenting to you Shagun Tomar and Sonali Vij in Label Nitya Bajaj’s Crop Top and Summer Jacket (respectively) from their splendid collection.

Latin Quarters Spring Summer’16 Collection

Well, even writing this post is bringing a smile to my face and that truly highlights the fact that I really had a lot of fun at the Bloggers Meet hosted by the Latin Quarters at their store in DLF Mall of India, Noida.

That morning was bright and colourful both inside and out as on walking into the store, I witnessed their fabulous Spring Summer’16 #TheNewMe collection which was full of life. I have to admit that I personally loved so many of their pieces and could actually visualize them in my closet. The clothes looked very comfortable,  wearable and trendy.

In fact, what took the excitement level a notch higher was when we were asked to pick chits and dress-up basis the theme we received.  I was super happy to receive the theme-Folklore. I got thinking and instantly picked up the dress below which was super stylish but then glancing through even more, I picked up something which I loved even more.

It is summer time so it is also time to wear a lot of white, what say?

While you will see the final look right below, accessorizing wisely was the decision I made. I must add that the brand also offers a decent variety of accessories.

So, here you will see me posing in white and to add a dash of a pretty colour, I opted for a Latin Quarters Tote Bag and not to miss mentioning about the pair of super elegant earrings  which I picked up. It was an amazing experience meeting all these lovely ladies and fellow bloggers 🙂

I would even like to thank the team yet again for a wonderful morning and the lovely goodies which they presented us.

Lastly, would just like to add that Latin Quarters Spring Summer’16 range truly endeavours to recreate the modern woman’s look with #TheNewMe themed collection. The range promises to weave a psychedelic wardrobe of floral motifs, animal prints and digital graphics in spunky and pastel color contrasts.

So, now when are you playing dress-up next post your retail therapy at the Latin Quarters?  Do share!

Happy Shopping!

We at Helipadonheels have been celebrating Mother’s Day with much cheer and excitement…This Friday, we joined the celebrations with one of the most vibrant brands of recent times- Rena Love. The brand’s latest collection is ultra soothing and chic. The fabrics, cuts and colours are all rather interesting and definitely call for a visit to the store.  And what is more is that they have been offering a 20% off on all purchases from 6th-10th May.

Sisley Spring Summer 2015

We are going the black and yellow route with Sisley’s Spring Summer 2015 Collection.  These pieces are absolutely fabulous. While some would give your personality an elegant cum sophisticated touch, the others would prove ideal for the ultimate sexy look. These are our picks as they are not only ultra comfortable but very trendy as well. And just when you are getting bored with too much black in your wardrobe, some splash of yellow would do wonders. If you already haven’t,  then it is time that you give their SS’15 stuff a serious look.  While we have stuck to black and yellow with some white- you should figure your colour palette soon too!

Rumbar- For The Tropical Twist

New Delhi’s  Hauz Khas Village is undoubtedly a colourful and buzzing place but for me, there are only a handful places where I would like to go more than just once- simply because these places stand-out for their quality and identity. I have recently been immensely impressed by a place which though not so old, made for a full-house on a Friday night and where people from all age groups where seeming to have a gala time. Yes peeps, the wait and suspense ends here. I am talking about the Rumbar, I reckon it is a kind of a  Caribbean retreat amidst the hustle and bustle of the city, where rum, food and live music are taken as religion.

The place nowhere shows any desperation to try and ape an established name in the vicinity, instead it has a distinctive character of it’s own.The interiors are quite simple but welcoming.  And the owners are quite happy that their guests feel quite at home when at Rumbar.

The story behind this beauty of a place is worth mentioning. The place is owned and managed by two French gentlemen passionate about Creole food and music. The idea for Rumbar, came into being after the success of the famed “Rose Aepritifs” which hosted Afrobeats live acts every Saturday night at The Rose – a charming bed and breakfast cum art gallery tucked away in the interiors of Hauz Khas Village. It is an extension of that passion – a love for the tropical beat, where mixed cultures come together under one roof.

The menu here would get your taste buds instantly excited. And believe me, you would have a sudden urge to try just about everything on offer. I  had quite a worthy meal during my first visit. To begin with, we ordered Accras Antillais which are Cod Fish Fritters that came with some salad and salsa(their salsa is so so good, that you would keep asking for a repeat). Also, a vegetarian dish was added to the table as next came the Green Papaya Gratin.  With a tasteful commencement to our outing, I was quite looking forward to the main course. Boys and Girls, I have to share that their homemade Ravioli is  one of the lightest I have ever had. Also, if you are a Risotto lover, there is no way that you can give it a miss here.

And for those who would like to take it further, worry not- there and burgers and sandwiches as well.

The dessert offerings are also rather tempting. We opted for their Fruit Burger. Yes, you read it right 🙂 The dish has got crunchy biscuits with layers of caramelized apples and fried mashed bananas, then the basil and strawberries add the punch and twist to this divine delicacy.

It is one of those happy places which lifts you higher after a packed day of running around. I certainly would want to be a regular for everything is how I would like it to be- the food, the decor and the music-I just loved it all.

Wishing happiness,

Sonali
