New Delhi

We feel location is paramount to just about everything else about any shoot you plan. Just like the clothes and the photography  location scouting is also as vital a factor to enhance a picture.

As fashion bloggers we have done a lot of shoots and are aware of how tedious the whole process is but this time around when we planned to shoot it in a car garage, I kid you not, it was a TASK.

From zero ventilation to grease all over our hands to posing with the vehicles with no source of light whatsoever barring a window – we really did push the envelope quite a bit to do justice to our theme this Winter, #Grease&Glam

Had it not been for H&M and Nishant’s photography, I don’t think we would have managed to pull this off!

After going through endless photographs we clicked during our staycation at Andaz, we have finally managed to shortlist the ones that capture the “Andaz”worthy essence of the hotel along with our vintage “Andaz” which blended in beautifully with the property.

We were scouting for the perfect location for our shoot and that’s when we stumbled upon this brand new property- Andaz by Hyatt at Aerocity, New Delhi – Fresh and stimulating environment, infused with character, welcoming guests to create inspiring experiences through a kaleidoscope of local culture. The DELHI VIBE and the AMBASSADOR is hard to miss!

Andaz by Hyatt is more than just a hotel, it’s truly an experience – A concept by Hyatt where there are no barriers- only fluid, friendly and accommodating spaces that invite you to move seamlessly from one new experience to the next. It’s a ‘CASUALLY COOL LUXURY’ hotel!

Believe it or not but the property’s fuss free approach is what makes the hotel feel at home, No Intimidating uniforms or code of conduct. It’s simply personifies the city in it’s true Andaz. Also the 401 rooms in the hotel are dedicated to one reason each to fall in love with the city (not to be missed, the customised book- ‘401 Reasons To Fall In love With Delhi by Fiona Caulfield)

Asset No.1, Aerocity, New Delhi, Delhi 110037

Every-time, I walk into Select CITYWALK, there is an extraordinary experience waiting at each of their many stores.

If you’re anything like me, then you will love—LOVE!—the thrill of a natural – herbal beauty find.
Imagine an entire store filled with Herbal Ayurvedic products!
Of course, the mall carries all the essential beauty labels like Chanel, Bobbi Brown, Dior, Sephora, Inglot, Lancôme—to name just a few. However, there is something about Shahnaz Husain, the Ayurvedic beauty store at Select CITYWALK that has been in the market for over 4 decades now.

It is my go to brand for all things hair if not anything else. After all, it is the ancient science of Ayurveda blended perfectly with the expertise that comes with the brand. I am sure we all know about her famous Henna, since many of us swear by it. However, there are other products that would totally win you over. Read on to find out:

Shahnaz Husain Shatone Scalp Tonic


It fortifies the hair, also helps get rid of the dandruff. Not just that, it nourishes the scalp, in order to achieve healthy looking, lustrous hair.

Shahnaz Husain Arnica Hair Oil

It is a formulation which combines the medicinal properties with Amla, Sandalwood, Bhringraj and Brahmi and works on toning the blood circulation in the scalp and hence promoting hair growth and volume. The active ingredients in this oil prevent hair fall, dandruff & premature greying – making it my personal favourite. 🙂

We all want thick and shiny hair but most of us are dissatisfied with the products we use, Thus I would suggest you to head out to try the good old humble hair care products at Shahnaz Husain.

Winters are at its peak and hence it’s time to talk about the perfect beauty regime that we have been following this winter courtesy L’Occitane.

First of all I believe that this particular brand deserves much more love than what it is currently receiving. Back in college I was introduced to L’Occitane by my mum, who bought me their Shea Butter Hand Cream and since then I have been a huge fan of this brand and have have also tried their other products.

If you haven’t been to L’Occitane, then I urge you all to head to Select CITYWALK in Saket , New Delhi and check out their outlet there – It’s like walking into a little piece of heaven for skincare and beauty lovers! It certainly is a pure luxury Beauty Brand and the treatment you receive walking in there, justifies that completely!

Anyhow coming back to our latest winter beauty regime, I have to say that If your skin needs a pick-me-up, then Immortelle range by L’Occitane is your best bet this winter. From their Milk Make up remover to their intense cleansing foam to their precious night cream – this skin-saving trio is a wise start to end your day with in order to preserve your youthful skin.

Here’s a Sneak Peak into what the range has in store for us:

Well as you know it’s’s no secret that winter can be jarring on your body; thus make your way to SELECT CITYWALK and get your beauty fix at Loccitane!

PS: Did we tell you they also do free skin consultation and recommend what’s best suited for your skin 🙂

Hello, Hello Lovlies!  I hope today brings you joy especially since it’s Christmas eve!

I have a fun and exciting blog post for you today, well at least I think it is!

I am not much of a make up junkie but there is certainly something about this festive month. I always end up purchasing makeup. Maybe; because winters are kinda gloomy hence it’s always a good idea to put on a bright lipstick with bold eyes and a trench coat to enjoy the festive fervour.

Recently I made a beeline for Sephora while I was shopping at Select CITYWALK.

One great thing about Sephora’s store layout is the fact that every beauty product on offer has a sample available for customers to test out. There are also shop assistants on hand who offer you their help the minute you step into a store.

I have been meaning to try out the benefit’s Brow Zing line, since I was on spree thought might as well figure out the perfect look for christmas. I love how customers are allowed to feel the different makeup textures and swatch the products on their own skin.

Have a look at the magic the peeps at Sephora tried to weave for my Christmas look:

Tamra(3)
With panoramic views of the lush green landscaped gardens, Tamra at Shangri-La’s Eros Hotel is a contemporary multi-cuisine all-day dining restaurant inspired from the early ages of culinary evolution when copper (tamra) vessels were key components in making a perfect meal. Conceptualised by the renowned Dubai based Stickman Design, the restaurant features an extensive international and national buffet and an à la carte spread to tantalize your taste buds and deliver a delectable dining experience.

Experience grandeur and utmost elegance

A beacon of culinary excellence, the restaurant offers an eclectic mix of new dining experience to Delhi with a multi-buffet concept that offers global cuisines from Europe, Japan, India and South East Asia. Equipped with five interactive kitchens, the culinary drama unfolds in a spectacular rhythm at the all-day dining restaurant .

Tamra(5)

Rustic yet elegant, the architectural style of the restaurant is striking and vibrant – from the back lit copper signage at the reception to the copper hanging pots  displayed over the two infinity tables where mirrored walls provide an exaggerated view – it is truly a gastronomic and theatrical experience.

Gastronomical Delight 

This was our first visit to Tamra and we have to say we were mighty impressed by their gracious hospitality. As we were led to our table, an array of strategically placed buffet food counters caught our eye. By far the most extensive lunch buffet, It was massive!

The menu was meticulously planned featuring familiar tastes with an exotic epicurean curiosity.

  • Sushi Platter

The impeccable Japanese treat was the first dish to arrive, I have to say that I am no sushi connoisseur but the tuna and salmon sushi deserve a special mention, the flavors were clean, and as a welcome change, not dry and bland.

  • Dim-Sum Delight

Flavorful yet refined is how we would define our dim sum experience. Served with just the right kind of dressing that doesn’t overpower the dim sums. While the Corn and Asparagus dim sums , played with textures in a refreshing bite, the prawn dim sums were an absolute delight.

  • Ambedi Mahi Tikka

These succulent chunks of sole fish smeared with masalas and raw mango paste should crown the list of your quick Tandoori bites.

  •  Chicken Trinkets

The crispy fried chicken trinkets served with with peanut sauce were tender to bite into and crispy on the outside – this innovative Thai fusion made our dinning experience worthwhile.

  • Mozzarella Cheese Melt

This savory Focaccia bread topped with pesto marinated vegetables was again absolutely delicious. Maybe the only disappointing factor was the texture as we felt it was heavy and dense.

*In all honesty the team at Tamra, believes in the policy of serving a unique experience to their guests and one has to visit this place to actually experience all of it!

  • Tamra Chocolate

Last but not the least – our favorite part of the meal; the dessert part is something which always makes or breaks a meal for us and we have to say our lunch date at Tamra was made. Although we do not have a photograph that could do justice to this spectacular desserts but their desserts were unpretentious and a refreshing change from the usual suspects. From in house Gelatos to the Crème brûlée and to the most perfect chocolate dessert we’ve ever had – no kidding;”The Tamra Chocolate” was just beyond amazing.

Our Take

Their eye for detail and attention paid to every tiny speck is just mind blowing – the fact that every counter was specifically segregated into vegetarian and non vegetarian section shows how considerate the team is at Tamra and they can go to any extent to make their guests feel comfortable.

Style Coquettes marks this place as – A must visit with your family!

Team Style Coquettes ventured into Momo Cafe last week at Courtyard by Marriott, Gurgaon and we have to say that this restaurant is worth a visit – especially when you are in this side of town.

This contemporary property is definitely an asset to the art and dine culture in Gurgaon. MoMo Cafe which stands for “Modern Living, Modern Dining” is an extension to the contemporary – fuss free theme at Courtyard by Marriott. Situated in the heart of Gurgaon the all day diner is a delight for all the business travelers and single travelers who visit the hotel for work and meetings.

The restaurant’s sheer expanse and modern dinning experience is in contrast with the hustle bustle of Gurgaon – so if you are looking for a place which is away from all the chaos then MoMo Cafe is the place for you.

Here’s a Sneak Peek from our gastronomic experience :

Murg Angara

Murg Banno Kebab

Murg Banno Kebab

Speaking of the new menu at MoMo Cafe – even though we are not big fans of North Indian Cuisine; the chef managed to impress us. We have to say that the executive chef Amit Dash really knows how to satisfy customers – from Murg Angara to the Murg Banno Kebab;the succulent meat layered with the fluffy layer of egg was beyond excellent. 

Indian Tikka Salad

It was amazing to see how chef  Amit Dash “THE EXPERT” in Indian Cuisine tweaked and modified the authentic dishes keeping in mind our palate.

Curried Bombay Toastie

Who would have thought an Indian tikka salad and a Mumbai delicacy Bombay toastie would make it to a fine dine menu. We give full marks to them for adding such quirk to their menu, really!

Honey Chilli Lotus Stem

After biting into all the Indian goodness it was time to move over to some Western and Oriental delectable delights. That’s Right, the chef prepared Honey Chilli Lotus stem and Grilled Fish with Lemon butter sauce for us and it turned out to be absolutely splendid. To be honest the team at Courtyard by Marriott works really hard to give it’s customers a unique experience and if you are someone who loves Indian then; this is it!!

Save The Best For The Last is what they say; and in this case it completely stands true because the Baked yogurt with  Blueberry cake was something, we still can’t stop thinking about as we savored every bit of it!!

Have a Look!

SC VERDICT: Based on the concept of Modern Dining, Cafe MoMo is perfect for family occasions – from Kids special Menu to Healthy treats – this place has it all.

L’Occitane is a brand we  have always been fond of.  Their hand creams are beautifully indulgent, while their almond shower oil is a staple in the bathroom and as far as our all time favorite range is concerned it has to be “Verbena“.

So recently when L’Occitane invited us  for a personal event hosted by Grazia India  at Kylin Skybar we just couldn’t resist!!!

Sundowner Shenanigans with L’Occitane

The event was co-hosted by the fashionable sis duo Zoya and Ziya singh , graced by the presence of L’Occitane enthusiasts like Anupama Dayal , Sonal Bhatia and the wonderful  Grazia India team.
