Culottes, gauchos, palazzo pants—this summer is all about the new, loose cropped trousers. Maybe you were not a fan of the culotte trend, but through repeated exposure and soul-searching, you’ve been worn down to the point of purchasing a pair.  Read More

Tropical Kiss from Holguín

In Holguín, you don’t need to go far for a taste of authentic Cuban life. Catamarans are waiting in the port to whisk you away to the very best snorkeling spots and Jeeps are always ready to lead you into the jungles of Cuba’s most adrenaline-filled destination. The water in Holguín is really blue, the sand white and the rum is as delicious as people say.  It’s hard to understand why Christopher Columbus, who first set foot in Holguín province in October 1492, ever left this place.

Cuba – Country of Contrasts

Elegant and old, this relatively hush city spells oasis to the traveler weary of confrontation. Predating both Havana and Santiago, it has been cast for time immemorial as the city that kick-started Cuban independence. Yet self-important it isn’t. The ciudad de los coches (city of horsecarts) is an easygoing, slow-paced, trapped-in-time place, where you’re more likely to be quoted literature than sold trinkets. It is like stepping back in time, where the date was stuck on 1958, the year that Fidel Castro came to power. Old American cars from the 1940s and ’50s ambled along dimly lit roads. Old, stately buildings stood over narrow streets. The dark of evening added to the city’s mystery, and hid the scars from decades of neglect.

It is a place where live, probably, the most proud people in the world, muy orgulloso de ser cubano (proud to be Cuban). Read More

What’s for Breakfast?

Breakfast is indeed a very important meal. A good breakfast fuels you up and gets you ready for the day. Believe it or not, but the old saying “Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper”, stands true today as well.

We might not have time to have a lavish breakfast buffet spread like a king, but having even a healthy dish or two makes the difference. Breakfast, literally means break the fast. Since our body doesn’t consume anything after dinner till we wake up the next morning, our body is famished. Having consumed the energy from last night’s meal, we need to recharge our battery, which is on low level now. So, just a cup of coffee or tea doesn’t suffice. Read More

Kimono

When a black silk dream in a floral print featuring birds and fauna, ”that you’d happily hang on your living room walls”, with mink sleeves and a menswear lapel walked the Gucci runway last season, it was a reminder—it hardly gets more beautiful than a collectible kimono. There’s an inherent glamour to the kimono—a garment with a beautiful Japanese history— and it fits perfectly into the au courant style equation that is leveraging volume, drama and sweeping lengths.

Biker Girl

Fashion matters – no matter who you are. That spicy unexpected way of wearing clothes… Today, I am mixing biker jacket and fishnets. Why bikers are always in trend? They’re a great transitional piece and are key for layering outfits: leathers, boots and a motorbike. Mix in some badass attitude and you have the coolest carefree girl. Why fishnets? Fishnets are probably one of those accessories you’ve pondered, only to land on an “I could never pull that off” verdict. Read More
