My Laser Hair Reduction Update | Laser Hair Reduction Experience | Tripollar Weight Reduction at Three Graces, Delhi

Hey everyone!

Few months back I had posted about my Laser Hair Reduction experience with Three Graces, Delhi. That post was after my first session, and having completed 4 sessions for hair removal with Three Graces, I am back with an update on my experience with the same.

I had already covered few important Myths and Facts regarding Hair Reduction through Laser treatment in my previous post and after 4 sessions, I must say the results have been impressive.

While I actually am seeing almost no hair growth in my under-arm area and I infact just waited for my next Laser session to get them removed, the results are slower on the Upper-lip area.

However, the dermatologist had already shared with me that Hair reduction on upper lip area would be slower and would only be effective post 6-7 sessions.

But even then the growth on upper-lip area has remarkably reduced and as I now am waiting atleast 45 days for the next session, I only shave off the upper lip area once in between just to get cleaner upper lip area.

Three Graces Laser Hair Reduction - Room 1
A laser hair removal session only takes 10-15 minutes depending upon the body area and is almost painless.

First, the therapist will shave off hair from the particular area and then would mark the area with a pen. Then a soothing gel would be applied on the area sparingly so that the laser glides smoothly and you don't feel any irritation.

Your therapist will then set a laser power depending upon your hair growth and area, and would use the machine for a few minutes as per the time set in the machine.

Though you might feel a little burning sensation if the laser power has been increased, which I felt during my recent session, but it wasn't something unbearable.


If you really don't like the headache of hitting your parlour every fortnight to get your regular dose of waxing and threading, I really recommend going for Laser Hair Reduction from Three Graces, as not only it causes much less pain as compared to the traditional hair removal methods, but also, over the time the hair growth would slow down extremely and you would have a smooth and clean skin.

During my last visit to the clinic, I also tried one of their Weight Reduction technologies - Tripollar - which is a revolutionary technology for fat reduction, introduced for the first time in India by Three Graces.

An advanced slimming technology, Tripollar enables inch loss, weight loss and body shaping all at the same time.
In this procedure, you will have to settle down while the therapist uses the Tripollar machine on specific body parts to burn down fat cells.

Tripollar room
The rise in temperature forces the fat cells to secrete fatty acids causing them to shrink. One of the quickest ways to get slim, it did help me lose few centimeters in just one sitting from my abdomen and thighs.

However, this treatment could be little heavy on your pockets. But if you are a working woman or you have a stubborn weight, which refuses to go even after dieting and intense workout, Tripollar is something that you should definitely try.

Facts to Remember while going for a Laser Hair Removal Procedure :
  • It is not a Permanent hair removal procedure, but would efficiently reduce your hair growth so that you only need to shave them off once in few months.
  • You can't wax the particular areas in between the Laser sessions and can only use a Razor to shave them off
  • Smaller areas like upper-lip and under arms take about 10 minutes while full legs or arms can take around 1 hour during each session.
  • Lasers work best on people with pale skin and dark hair. 
  • Lasers kill the hair follicle, therefore you would not experience any in-grown hairs, like you do during waxing.

OOTD - Black All The Way | How to Style Co-Ords Set | Curvy Style Guide

Hey everyone!
Hope you all are doing great and enjoying the monsoon season. I am back with another Outfit post featuring a trendy Co-ords set by Stalk Buy Love.

Co-ords are all the rage this season as not only they look very chic but are also very versatile, helping you get 3 outfits from one. Also, you don't have to worry about what to match them with, and just have to pick the right accessories and shoes to get ready.

Whether you are picking a style in solid colors, or one in vibrant prints, accessorizing is the key to rock your Co-Ordinates in a unique way.

As you know about my love for midi skirts this season, I couldn't help picking this beautiful midi skirt- crop top set in black color from Stalk Buy Love which also features a sheer pattern at the hemline.
To add color to my outfit, I accessorized it with a coral Forever 21 necklace and wore the sequinned Steve Madden heels. The monochrome fringe bag from Stalk Buy Love adds more style to the outfit and makes it party appropriate, don't you think?

Look at these lovely pictures clicked by our new team member Anirudh Gandhi :


Co-Ords : Stalk Buy Love
Bag : Stalk Buy Love
Heels : Steve Madden
Watch : Daniel Wellington
Necklace : Forever 21



You can take the Co-Ords style from Day to Night by just changing your accessories and picking sandals for the day, and killer heels for the night.
You can also try experimenting with your look by playing mix-and-match with your Co-ordinates and existing wardrobe pieces.

What's your take on Co-ordinates? Do you think this trend is here to stay?
I really like this matchy matchy style which helps make choosing an outfit easy and is the coolest combo of this season.

Feature : SUNAR Jewels - A House of Luxurious and Awe-Inspiring Jewellery | Designer Jewellery in Delhi

Hey lovely readers!

The other day I was checking out the pictures of Mira Rajput, or should I say Mrs. Mira Kapoor, from her wedding and reception, and just couldn't take my eyes off from the beautiful jewellery she chose to wear.

Jewellery has been an important part of our attire since ages, and even the modern day jewellers take inspiration from the Mughal era and vintage pieces to create magnificent designs which are suitable for the modern brides. I am sure that even if you are unmarried, you would have had an image of the kind of jewels you would want to wear on your D-day.

And while wedding is not on the cards for me anytime soon, I can't help checking out the latest jewellery collections and making a Wishlist of my own. So, recently when I was introduced to SUNAR Jewels :  a fine jewellery brand located in the heart of Delhi, I was completely awestruck by their exquisite jewels.

SUNAR is the brainchild of the business mogul and designer extraordinaire, Praveen Goel, whose name is the forefront of Luxury Retail. The brand creates visual poetry with pieces that embrace contemporary styles and modern innovations while preserving the traditional designs.



Located in one of the most popular markets of Delhi - Karol Bagh, their studio can truly be called a Jewellery Haven. Upon entering the showroom, you will be taken to a magnificent room which has a regal touch and rich aura.



The interiors have an aesthetic appeal which and the display areas surely are the centre of attention. Shiny walls with rich wooden work accentuate the sparkling jewels on display with plush sofas and chairs for a relaxed experience.

The interior decor of the showroom, the color palette, and the excellent jewellery displayed are a reflection of beauty.


Their large, beautiful showroom houses Wedding Trousseau, Polki jewels, Designer pieces and much more that will leave you spellbound with their excellent craftsmanship and intricate designs.



One of my favorites from their Designer collection is this ruby bracelet which will look oh-so-fabulous with a cocktail gown and stiletto heels.


The best part about their luxurious designs is that not only do they feature the contemporary styles, but also blend modern innovations to make something perfect for a modern woman who loves to balance traditions and her confident style.
This diamond necklace is example of their excellent craftsmanship and something that I would love to wear on my D-day.



Other favorites from their uber rich collection were a timeless Gold choker neckpiece, a Polki masterpiece, drop earrings, a unique gold pendant depicting their eye for detail with the use of magical gemstones and precious metals.

My 5 Summer Secrets to Look Good | Summer Beauty Secrets

Heya lovelies!

While the rains are blessing us by pouring once in a while, the hot Summer weather is still here to stay. As soon as you step out of the house, you can feel the scorching heat literally burning your skin. So much so that I prefer staying indoors the entire week except from the times when I have to step out to reach office and do important chores.

If you think that stepping out for a few minutes in the sun would not harm your skin, you are truly mistaken. Even a slight exposure to the sun in this weather  can cause dryness, dark spots and make us look older than we are!


That’s why, in Summer, it is really important to follow certain steps to ensure that our skin remains hydrated and well protected.

Here, I have covered by Top Five Summer Secrets to beat the Heat and keep your Skin happy and healthy -
  • Daily Skincare Regime : No matter how busy you are, it is really necessary to follow a proper skincare regime including Cleansing, Toning and Moisturizing twice a day, to keep the skin soft and supple. 
I prefer using a Tea Tree and Aloe vera based cleanser and toner to keep my skin clear and fresh, while I pick a gel-based moisturizer with sunscreen to hydrate my skin.

  • Sunglasses : The only way to keep the eyes protected from harmful UV rays and look stylish as well this summer is by opting for trendy eyewear. 

My favorites this season is this pair of Emporio Armani sunglasses I recently purchased online.

  • Sunburn Protection : Extreme exposure to sun rays can not only cause tanning but also can be a cause of sunburn and rashes. While you can visit a salon to get rid of the tanning, but honestly who has the time for a weekly salon visit? 
That's why I picked this amazing new product from Spinz - a Sun Tan Remover - which does not contain any bleach, is Dermatologically tested and is Safe to use for all skin types. This unique wash-off cream shows results in just 5 minutes and is very Easy to use.




Check out the above video to know more about Spinz Sun Tan Remover!

Who needs to visit a salon, when you can get rid of tan and also get a radiant skin within 5 minutes, from the comfort of your home!

I have found it super useful when I have to go out right after work. I just change my flats into a pair of stunning heels, have a 5 minute facial with Spinz Sun Tan Remover and I’m ready to go.
My favourite part about the product is that it can be used anywhere. You just need 5 minutes- wash your face, apply the product, watch that clock and you’re done!

  • Hydration : I make sure to have atleast 10-12 glasses of water daily including other liquids like Fresh juices, chaach etc. to keep myself hydrated which also contributes to a clear, smooth skin.

  • Lip Balms : If you believed that your lips can get chapped and dry only during Winter season, Think again! Lips tend to dry and get flaky even during summers due to the scorching sun.
Therefore, I keep my Shea Butter lip balm from The Body Shop handy to keep my lips soft and supple. 

These were my Summer Beauty Secrets, do you have some secrets of your own that you will like to share with us? Let me know in the Comments below and we might just post them on our Facebook page!

OOTD : Sheer Love - How to Style a Layered Midi Skirt | Curvy Style Guide

Hola chicas!
Here I am with the first outfit post of July. Time passes by so fast, right? I didn't realize how quickly these 6 months passed and we are into the middle of the year so soon.

Anyway, today's outfit dates back to last weekend when my friends made an impromptu Clubbing plan and I ended up buying new clothes from the mall, as I didn't have much time to get back to my home and pick some nice clothes. Now, you can really see what an impulse Shopper I am, but then I didn't feel really guilty as I already had my eyes on this skirt I picked from Vero Moda.

Well you must be aware of my fetish for midi skirts if you follow me on Instagram and have gone through the recent Outfit posts. I find midi skirts really classy and versatile, and they are a perfect length for curvy girls as help give a toned look (petite girls should not forget wearing heels).

This cream-colored midi skirt from Vero Moda also sits below my knees, and has 2 layers - a sheer longer layer on the top which also has a beautiful sheen. To make it stand out, I styled it with a printed top from ONLY in a blue color and has a cute zipper on the front.

Keeping the accessories minimal, I opted for a sleek neckpiece which I recently purchased from Connaught Place and a clutch purse from Romwe.com. You'll agree that stealing the show were these sequinned heels from Dune London which added a glamorous touch to the complete attire, making it perfect for partying.

Have a look at the pictures :
Top : ONLY
Skirt : VERO MODA
Heels : DUNE London
Clutch : Romwe
Necklace : Local store





The perfect mantra to style a midi skirt is first picking a length that works best for your height. A midi skirt should ideally have a hemline that hits somewhere below the knee and above the ankle,

If you are petite, wearing a pair of heels always help elongating your legs.
Pick a silhouette according to your body shape - Petite girls can opt for a fitted skirt with a back or side slit while taller girls can go for a flared skirt just like mine for a chic vibe.
