Bright & Beautiful Birthday at Blo Bar

Can only begin by expressing gratitude to all those who made my birthday super special and beautiful. While the celebrations went on for days, sharing a little about the party I had hosted for my girlies at the newly opened Blo Bar in Defence Colony Market.

The minute I came across the fun concept of this place, I just knew it that I wanted to host a party here and what’s better is that the birthday was not very far off. Blobar is India’s first blow-dry bar only. They strongly believe in the transformative power of a simple blowout.

Here is taking you through the journey of planning and executing this very simple yet supremely fun party. As a birthday girl, I can talk for myself for sure with confidence that I had a ball of a time.

  1. Invitation- Being an event planner, I was certain to go into details. Hence, this invite for my close group of friends and sisters. The theme had to have an essence of celebrating “US”- so, I thought of Bright and Beautiful. And I love making invites on so the birthday invite too had to be from here!

  2. Venue- Girls, believe me when I say this that I made the best decision to host my party at Blo Bar. It was something so different and unique that everyone thoroughly enjoyed and so many reached out to me to ask more about this entire concept. The package I opted for included shampoo/conditioning and hair styling with drinks from their side such as Champagne, Sangria and Vodka which translates to the fact that each guest got 2-3 glasses of alcohol. Yes, you read it right, the owner-Sargam is ever so sweet and did pop a Champagne as well. In addition, they provided some munchies such as Cheese Crackers, Nachos & Salsa and Puffs. What’s better is that they are ever so flexible and hence, let me add more food to the table. 
  3. Food- Since the talk on the food just got started thought I’d enlighten you a bit on what all I added. There was Vegetarian Quiche from Defence Bakery, Vegetarian and Non-Vegetarian Kathi Rolls and Yummy Sandwiches, courtesy mother.
  4. Games- Yes, we had to play some fun games as the girls took turns to get their hair shampooed and conditioned and then styled. They have a lovely hair styling menu for one to pick and choose! And each one loved their hair styles and flashed a big smile! The games included- What’s on your phone- the girl with the maximum score won, then-Who knows the Birthday Girl the Best and lastly, I got everyone to write their most Special Memory with Me!
  5. Cake- Well, this element too had to be different so I ditched cutting the usual cake and instead ordered Passion Fruit, Mixed Fruit, Lemon and Chocolate Tarts from The Bombakery! And believe you me, their tarts are absolutely divine!
  6. Photos, please- The entire venue is so so pretty but there is one particular wall against which you gotta click enough pictures! And Blo Bar was kind enough to arrange some amazing photo props as well!
  7. Decor- The place requires very little add-ons. They arranged for some beautiful hangings and I too added a few cut-outs of flowers, pink buntings, purple tissues, polka plates, pink glasses and the like! The place is very bright and beautiful!
  8. Music- I had shared my preferred list and they played them all! In the end, you gotta a shake a leg or two!
  9. Return Gifts- I just wanted to do this! As a very small gesture to express tremendous gratitude to each one of them for adding so much brightness to my life- I gave each one a Face Mask from The Face Shop with a Thank you Card!

    Hope you enjoyed going through my party in brief!!! And THANK YOU Blo Bar for making this Birthday truly memorable and extra special!



KlosetEdit- For the love of Fashion & More…

The whiff of dreams packed with determined and passionate efforts in realizing a unique vision into reality was instantly reflected when I came across the website- KlosetEdit for the very first time.

I readily related to the need for such a platform as we all have some outfits which only stare at us from our closets and seldom meet the cut for our, “Out of the Day” – so it sounds nothing less than amazing to be actually getting to sell them off. Or how about getting an opportunity to buy our most desirable labels at extremely attractive prices only because one of us decides to part ways with it. Yes, KlosetEdit gives closet management a whole new meaning. And that is exactly why I chose to indulge in tete-a-tete with Deepal and Kanika, the lady bosses who made it all happen…


Kanika Khurana and Deepal Gandhi

Q: Did you both always wanted to turn fashion entrepreneurs? Please share with us on what eventually led to the KlosetEdit?
A: We met at LSE Summer School in 2010 and bonded over our love for all things fashion. One casual conversation of how “we feel like we have nothing to wear and yet have no space in our overflowing closets, wish we could just sell our closet for cash” led us to wonder if more women feel the same way! Post college, we took up full time corporate jobs while never leaving our idea behind.  After conducting extensive market research, we realized that due to increase in demand for aspirational brands, better logistical support and changing mindset of the consumers, India was maturing as a market for pre-loved fashion. The thrill of building a brand to solve the closet needs propelled us to leave our jobs and plunge into the start-up life!

Q: For the benefit of our readers who have several items hanging in their closets lying unused for the longest time, please explain how they can benefit through KlosetEdit?
A: It is a well surveyed fact that women only end up using 20% of the apparel from their closets, rest of the items make up for impulse purchases, unwanted gifts and sizes that don’t fit anymore. While we actively encourage women to donate items they no longer use, branded handbags and designer dresses that aren’t used anymore are hard to just give away! Thus, they keep lying in our closets, gathering dust and taking up space in our precious ‘real estate’. This is where KlosetEdit comes in the picture. We help women sell their ‘too tight’ impulse purchased jeans, barely used dresses and seasonal buys for something more chic, on point and affordable. In order to sell pre-loved fashion, a seller simply fills a simple seller form with a few details of the products being sent along with a few photos. We arrange a pick-up of the styles which are selected by our in-house stylist. Once the item comes to the warehouse, it goes through an extensive quality and authenticity check and a resale price is quoted to the seller, (only once the seller agrees to the pricing) we start the listing process. Everything from photography, hygiene to maintenance is taken care of by our team. As and when the product sells, we forward the money to the seller in form of a bank transfer or store credits.


Q: Most of us are familiar with the concept of vintage shops being in existence but how has the response been in the virtual world and particularly in the Indian market as far as purchasing a previously owned item is concerned?
A: It has been overwhelming! Sure, there is still apprehension with pre-owned items, but the mindset is fast changing. Buying pre-loved is smart shopping. Why should you pay full retail price when you can buy new items from a variety of brands at up to 80% off? Our excessive focus on QC and curation has led to customers calling us to appreciate the quality of items they have received. Maintaining high quality standards and being extremely transparent about the condition of the items has helped us win loyal customers all over India. We are constantly working towards making buying and selling of fashion as informative and hassle free as possible.

Q: Do you accept only high-end labels? How does one decide what to send for selling and what not?
A: We love all brands from Zara to LV! One can sell anything from a Mango dress to a Hollister skirt to MK bag to Jimmy Choo shoes. We accept most brands from high street to high-end fashion, simply because we don’t want to restrict our collection and we believe each pre-loved item that is in a great condition deserves to be loved again! That being said, we request each seller to look at our list of brands we love and detailed quality standards before scheduling a pick-up with us.

Q: What would you like to say to all those young girls who have a dream but are not able to take it to the next level?
A: Make it happen! Life is too short to miss opportunities. It is always tough to take the plunge, but have a plan, work with a focus and no matter what, don’t stop believing! Starting up has its own highs and lows but the highs are so rewarding. There is no feeling in the world better than seeing your dream turn into a reality.

Q: On a lighter note, when was the last time you got tempted to buy something one of your seller’s sent for the website?
A: EVERYDAY! Honestly, if someone was to ask us on what is the biggest challenge? It sure is this! We get such amazing styles that we really have to control each other from not buying products ourselves!

Q:  Lastly, tell us about the future plans for KlosetEdit?
A: We have been overwhelmed with the response we have got thus far, winning buyers and sellers trust has been the most exhilarating part of our journey. Future plans include geographical expansion, we have seen interest from varied parts of the country and vertical expansion. We also plan to add more styles and categories so people are always looking forward to pre-loved fashion. All of these plans are centered around the customer and ensuring that we provide the best to them.


So, as I wrap up, it is best that you now straight head to check out their phenomenal endeavor




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.









Helipadonheels wishes you all lots of love and smiles!!! Here’s to the love of friendship!!!

Accessorizing the AQ way!

Hey folks, even though there is this spurt of online stores, doesn’t the coming in of an exclusive high-street fashion accessories online shop call for plenty of excitement. So, yes with tremendous joy, we share in-depth with you about AQ this time around.

What we realized was that not just their products on offer were trendy but were surely different as well. We mean to say that you would find things rather easily if you are looking for something both classy and unique.

Their team of accomplished international designers are believed to take inspiration from international street fashion and haute couture to create an exclusive yet affordable selection of accessories for all style needs.

For all those who never say no to a new pair of shoes- selection for you would be rather hard. Each style is backed with a twist which keeps it off from going into the category of “regular stuff”. Even their everyday category of shoes do have a strong sense of style as why should you be caught looking anything less than your fashionable best even when someone pays you a surprise home visit. Few of our favourites include the likes of their Shashy Brown Wedges, Lea Gold Strappy Gladiators, Aleen Plimsolls Sneakers, Fenna Multi Strap Wedges and not too miss their Tami Flower Printed Heels. And here is its sneak peek:

AQ0015PinkSH -4
Soft corner for bags, anyone? We believe bags are very dear to girls as they land up being their companion both in sunshine and in rain. We hate being repetitive but you shall soon agree too that their bags whether sling or tote, they are not the usual types. And what is more is that the price range is rather varying so in times when you want to spoil yourself rotten to times when you are on a tight budget, you are likely to find something worth purchasing. There is a great sense of international taste and style that reflects in each of their pieces. Here, what you is their Mia Circular Box Clutch and Anna Heart Sling.

AQ0006Pink1BG -2

AQ0037Green1BG -1

And when looking for that one statement piece which can truly make you dazzle, you should check out their jewellery section. An accessory which we girls don’t wear that often is a brooch but the ones you see on AQ are worth possessing. Check out their Jodie necklace which is absolutely attractive.

In case you still are not satisfied, this holistic accessory store also offers sunglasses, hats, scarves and so much more…
We are quite certain that soon this will be your preferred choice for online shopping as we all like to keep it classy, don’t we? As we sign off, we wish you the best of retail therapy on

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!


Good pick for an elegant office look.


A must in the closet of a social animal as you shall find enough occasions to wear this one!


Will work well when too much is on a day’s agenda!


It is always comforting yet stylish.


If accessorized wisely, it will work well for your Saturday night outing!
