De-Stressing at the Four Fountain Spa, Malad

In today's day and age, stress and tension has become a part of our life. Saying this, I have to add that stress, tension and worry often comes two fold for me due to many reasons. Hence, when I got the opportunity to review the Four Fountain Spa, I simply jumped at the opportunity.

Wills India Fashion Week 2013: Myoho by Kiran & Meghna

Autumn Winter 2013-14 at Wills India Fashion Week 2013 

Mildly eccentric and slightly magpie, the collection this season is all about mixing and matching – odd separate teamings, off colour pairings and a luxe careless feel, retaining the ‘handcrafted’ essence of the label.

Detailed block and screen prints in muted yet vibrant colours are complemented by graphic, crafty textures and embroideries, somewhat leaning towards a tribal-folk aesthetic.

Fabindia Neem & Tulsi Mud Pack: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

Over the past few years, (or rather since the time I moved away from home and have been doing a bit of travelling) I have noticed that my skin has been changing slowly and steadily. By change, I do not mean that it is becoming better, by change I mean the change in skin type. I always had perfectly normal skin, but now my skin type has changed to Combination, that too, Combination on the oily side. Yes, its true, during summers, you can actually deep fry food with the amount of oil certain parts of my face creates.

An Afternoon at Runah Salon - Review

Around two weeks ago was my bestie - Raima'a birthday. And, like any other girl she wanted to look her best and also wanted to get a mini makeover done (Read: get an awesome haircut.) So, just a few days before her birthday, we decided to go for the mini makeover and since we met the fun-loving and charming Akshata Honawar, Creative Director of Runah Salon here, we decided to go to her for the haircut. 

After the decision, Raima went ahead and made an appointment with Akshata for her mini makeover. Extremely excited, (Yes, I tend to become excited like a school kid when it comes to haircuts, makeovers and salon visits :P) we both (very impatiently) waited for the day to come. When the day finally came, both of us giddy with excitement headed over to the Salon for her mini-makeover.

Runah Salon was not new to me in any way. I had heard about the salon from my cousin elder sister and had also read about it in many of the beauty mags and salon magazines, hence, I was quite excited to see the place. The salon, which is located right above Power House Gym in Lower Parel (opposite Phoenix Mills), may raise apprehensions on how big it might be and may lead many to think that it would be quite cramp and dark. However, it is anything but that. When you climb up the stairs, you come upon an extremely spacious, wonderfully lit and aesthetically designed salon. Definitely a pleasant surprise.
