Go Indie | Adopt Don't Shop

I have always had a soft corner for Indian street dogs. Be it little pups with the dreamiest of eyes, or the adult dogs who refuse to grow up, I love all furries out there. No matter how tough their lives have been, Indian street dogs will welcome you with all the warmth in their hearts, they will still carry a sparkle in their eyes. People who can't look beyond the 'street dog”' in them, don't know what they are missing out here!
Here are few of my favourite rescue cases that I have been involved with lately. Even though life has brought them down couple of times, these tough indies refuse to give up! All these beautiful stories are a reminder that every dog deserves a family, a home that they can call their own, a place where they will be adored and looked after, humans that will make sure they never sleep without a meal again.

It isn’t easy being a mother dog on the streets. The one in the above is called Mother.

"If you're wearing Lingerie that makes you feel glamorous, you're halfway there to turning heads" -Elle McPherson

Even though no one else can see it, Beautiful Lingerie can put you back in touch with your feminine charm, and the Perfect Lingerie is a wonderful confidence booster because it can make a woman feel beautiful inside and out. With confidence, there comes an increase in self esteem and more!

Women should represent femininity. We love to get our hair, make up, and nails done because it makes us feel feminine and pretty. How about lingerie?

Here are some basic Dos & Don'ts of buying and wearing Lingerie, that I wanted to share with you guys, so that you can feel confident and beautiful at all times:

When shopping for Lingerie, there are so many things to look out for- the most important being the "Quality". Good quality fabric not only means that your lingerie will last longer, but it will also ensure comfort and hygiene. Since your lingerie is always the closest to your skin, never compromise on the quality.

2. Fitting
80% of the women wear the wrong bra size! Don't be one of them, as it will damage your breast size and shape. Apart from that, it can also lead to neck, back & shoulder pain, sagging of breasts and even breast cancer! To avoid this, the best thing to do is to go to a professional bra fitter and get yourself fitted for the right bra size. Lingerie stores usually have expert fitters.
Here's how you can do it at home:

3. Lingerie Wardrobe
While most of us are content with owning a few basic and neutral pieces, it is time to get out of your comfort zone and bring some drama into your lingerie wardrobe. You must own all sorts of lingerie to suit different occassions and outfits- from basic t-shirt bras to bandeaus, thongs to boy shorts, and corsets to camisoles.
You'll be surprised how this will boost your confidence and self-esteem.

4. Washing
Never put your lingerie in the washing machine or dryer, this will make it appear feeble too soon. Instead, handwash it using a mild detergent and let it dry naturally. There are special lingerie washes available in the market too.

Those who follow me on Instagram, may already know that my favorite lingerie brand- Amanté recently opened up in my hometown, Chandigarh and I was super excited to have witnessed its launch at Elante Mall. Starting from the interiors to the whole collection, everything was pretty and chic, providing the shopper with a wonderfully luxurious experience!
