This girl is a diva, (no I'm not just praising her ) she actually won a Beauty pageant,  where I was her fellow contestant. There are few people who are so gorgeous and down to earth like her.  Girls, meet Raka, the the Real Beautiful Bengali Bride. 

Raka is a friend of mine from those beauty pagent days. And when she got married to her high school sweetheart ( isn't it soo cute and exciting) I had decided to feature her here in the blog. Because I love her and because we all love everything related to weddings, brides, shopping... :D
So here is a small interview of Raka where she answered all my questions related to her wedding.

Me : so, tell us the story. How did you two meet?

Raka : I met koustuv through a common friend....I remember I quarelled with him on the first day....later we became friends...he never proposed me officially..:P

Me : Haha, really?! Well, where did you buy your sarees from? 

Raka : I bought all my attires from different shops...for exmple.. I bought my saree for marriage ceremony from Adimohinimohan Kanjilal (Kolkata) ...from Anand i bought my saree for reception. Then I bought sarees from Tolaram..but most of my sarees are from Anand
and... I haddecided what to wear,from where should I buy etc right from the day my marriage was fixed :D Afterall I was excited! 

Me : Who were your makeup artists?

Raka : For marriage day Sarmili  halder did my makeup and for reception I booked Nanda.

Me : Who was your photographer in your wedding? 

Raka : My uncle knew some photographers from Kolkata tv personally. So they only covered my full wedding.

Me : where did you buy your jewelleries from? And who chose them?

Raka : Jewelleries were from p.c chandra and Anjali jewellers. Well my mom, granny and i  chose all my jeweleries . And my hubby chose the special diamond ring which he gave me :)

Me :  That's great! Please share some tips for all the brides to be :)

Raka : Well what will I say? After all I am only a new bride :D But still firstly  i wanna tell all brides to take care of themselves. Make a routine for what to do and what not to do. Take care of your skin hair and body. Do exercises if you have to shed extra kilos :p You have to drink lots of water & vegies if you want to glow on your wedding day..start doing facials and body messages....take some hairspa. :)

Me: Thank you so much Raka for sharing these wise words with us. I hope the brides to be are taking notes . And thank you again for all the pretty pictures :)

Beautiful Bengali Brides

I am one of those people who are obsessed about weddings, bridal looks and everything related to that. As a child i used to collect stamps and now i collect pics of brides ,whether its celebs or people i know. Whenever a celeb gets married, i'm like " OK!! GREAT!! Let's hunt her pics!!!" I just love to see how people dress for their D-day. What they wear, how they wear and whom they wear! ..In this post I'm going to talk about Bengali brides,both celebrities and non-celeb princesses.

Beautiful Bngali brides have been captured in films for a long time. One of the famous bengali bride on screen is Aiswarya Rai (Devdas). By her traditional look, she mesmerized the whole nation. I remember, people in west bengal were wearing dhoti and heavy sarees after the film's release. Such was the madness! In recent movies, Yami Gautam made a beautiful Bengali 'bou' in Vicky Donner.

 I love her red painted (by Aalta) fingers. Now days girls of bengal are going for …

Lakme Absolute Lip Pout Expectation !

Do you name things you own?! Like , does your car has a name? Or your pillow! Yes it sounds strange but a lot of people name things they love ( like we give sweet name to our lovers, puchu, kuchi, sweetie,  motu... bla bla ..haha .. shhhhh). I wonder why cosmetic companies name their products?! There can be soo many reasons.  What do you think it is!?

Well our own Lakme has launched 6 matt lip crayons called Lakme Absolute Lip Pout. And these 6 shades has some juicy names as well!!
Pink Fantasy
Magenta Magic
Tangerine Touch
Victorian Rose
Starlet Red
Raving Red

I loveee all their names and the rich colours of these lip pouts are totally pout worthy.  So before buying Lip Pouts I tried them on Lakme's "Lakme Makeup Pro" app. (If you don't have the app just download it from playstore).
