A Home That Co-exists With Nature

Among the many residential projects in Bangalore, this property in particular caught my attention. Nestled in Sammy’s Dreamland off BIAL (Airport) Road, surrounded by numerous projects, Assetz Earth & Essence stands out like a sight to sore eyes. The project holds true to the Assetz promise of ‘Innovation, Design & Quality.’ This reminded me of how real estate companies have evolved their thinking from basic structural houses to well researched and designed houses. In today’s day and age, the concept of sustainable and eco-living homes are fast growing. With Assetz Earth & Essence, both these concepts are seen throughout the project. Not just the homes but also in the execution of the remaining master plan. For instance, the homes come with sky lights which allow for natural lighting which is uncommon in most row houses. The project also comes with a 1.5 acre Earth club catering to all your leisure and fitness needs such as tennis, organic farming and much more. These are just few of the features/amenities offered.

When I first moved to Bangalore, I had a very different image of the city. Lesser traffic, greenery for miles and a city that automatically made everyone feel like they belonged.

Over the course of time, this sense of belonging has faded away giving way to a fast moving life which has taken a toll not only on our mental health but also on the environment.

After visiting this project, I felt that spark of old Bangalore once again. At Earth & Essence, you get the opportunity to sneak away from the city while still being in the midst of it. It’s the perfect balance of nature and the city life.

The property is an amalgamation of natural light, fresh air, tranquilizing scenes of greenery and nature. It provides you with a sense of comfortable living and community lifestyle.

Earth & Essence consists of 75 row houses that range from 3, 4 and 5 BHK homes starting at 2.6 Cr and is located in North Bangalore, which is an up and coming neighborhood, catering not only to the retired but also to the young and restless. Almost sounds like this project is unreal.

I urge you to pay a visit to this marvelous project when you have time on your hands. And yes, it’s worth the drive.

Experience a simpler yet richer way of living only at Assetz Earth & Essence!

The Secret Project

 

Few days back I came across this Instagram profile via a blogger friend who had recently collaborated with them. The sari dress caught my attention and took me directly to their website.

The story behind The Secret Project is captivating and awe-inspiring. Their aim is to work in NGO’s and charities that help empower women. Not just empowering, the organisation that they collaborate with lend a helping hand to women who want to earn a living but find it difficult to find opportunities. They have created a positive and joyful community centers for women to help and support them. Other than the Sari dress that they market, another unique concept that they make is the secret pillow that opens up as a fold-able quilt. Isn’t that amazing! Who could have thought of that but these women did it. If that isn’t stirring, I don’t know what is!!

I got my hand on this easy breezy sari dress that these women make. All the sari dress that they sew are trouble-free and simple. The designs are spunky and pretty. The material that they use are saris that we have always seen lying in a corner in our mother’s wardrobe. They have different materials like cotton, georgette, silk and options to choose from on their website on a very reasonable price. It gives you peace when you know that someone will benefit from the money spent on something good.

I styled this peachy cotton sari dress with a white shrug. The material is so soft and breezy that even after layering I could beat the Bangalore summer effortlessly. A perfect outfit to absorb the torpor.

What do you think?

How To Restyle Your Outfit? – Project 1

I am currently in the mood to restyle what ever I have in my wardrobe because I am tired of buying something and not wearing it. Sadly, there have been times where I had to discard them by either donating or giving it away without even wearing it once. And I know I am not the only one who faces these uneconomical situations on a regular basis. Brands like H&M have come out with a sustainable campaign which allows you to give away a bag full of clothes that you don’t need anymore and with every bag of clothes that you give away, you get a 15% discount coupon. They use those received clothes to refurbish it and come up with new designs in the same print. I hope this is true. I have tried this and have received coupons to purchase from the store. But that results in buying more new clothes which is the opposite of recreating styles.

The whole point of this project is to REUSE – RECREATE – RESTYLE.

I have noticed a lot of people reusing and recreating styles from outfits that they have worn once (on social media) , knowingly or unknowingly. I keep stressing on “worn outfit” because we are living in a generation where a lot of us buy clothes just for social media and then keep it aside for it to rot. And people who don’t wear new outfits are judged and looked upon. Yes, it is depressing! Thankfully, a lot of my friends believe in restyling. If you follow Styleprism, Ishtyleawhile, Shivani Boruah, and HuesofMe, you would know. The current leading fashion influencer Komal Pandey, lifestyle blogger Komal Singh and Charuta are few more names to add to that list of Restyling Gurus. They create styles out of their wardrobe that looks like magic.

In this post, I have recreated this style by reusing a satin dress that I had bought four years back from Goa (was almost going to discard it) and these Indo-western boots from Ajio (wore it million times). Some say beach dresses can’t be worn in a city but I don’t agree. All you have to do is up your restyling game. As simple as that.

Let’s come together and REUSE-RECREATE-RESTYLE!

Mrs Subbalakshmi – A New Web Series on Zee5

There is no doubt that the internet is taking the world by storm. Nobody watches serials or shows at the exact time; most of the houses have fire stick or Google Chrome to watch whatever they want and whenever they want. More than TV shows and series, it is the web series that are currently killing it in the market with major actors collaborating with production houses, unlike television.

Coming straight to the post, when it comes to South Indian movies, shows or series, you can rarely find any woman-centric ones. They usually give huge importance to male leads. This has been going on for ages together and hopefully will change soon. Finally, on March 8th, ZEE5 launched and started streaming a series based on modern day woman called Mrs Subbalakshmi. The web series is produced and directed while keeping in mind that it is portraying 21st-century relationship and societal norms.

telugu_msl1_1170x658

I won’t say that the life of a woman has changed over the years. We are in transit. There are a lot of women who are still restrained from doing what they want to do by their parents or by their family post marriage. Education plays a very important role but more than that the important part is how an individual has been brought up in this society. That speaks a lot about one’s character.

Mrs Subbalaksmi revolves around a married woman who loves to read, is into sports and loves extra help like any other woman in this country. After a lot of speculation, the female lead decides to pamper herself after her ignorant husband forgets their anniversary.

Three reasons why you need to watch Mrs Subbalakshmi web series right away:-

  • The Cast – Lakshmi Manchu daughter of famous Telugu actor Mohan Babu has made a comeback via the digital world for the first time. Mrs Subbalkshmi is directed by the very talented Mr Vamsee. Another brilliant actor, Srinivas Avasarala will be seen as Lakshmi’s husband in this series.  Srinivas Avasarala had worked in the latest NTR movies as LV. The script is written by Balabhadrapatruni Ramani. Even in the press meet, she was very confident that the web series would do great among the audience.
  • The Story – The main reason is that Mrs Subbalakshmi is a woman-centric web series that paints the story about the indifference between typical couples. The story is transparent and is relatable to every household in this country. Mrs Subbalakshmi is an answer to those women who want the freedom to do what they want. It’s more about equality and freedom to live than anything else.
  • Curiosity – I wonder how the tables are going to turn after the female lead decides to live her life the way she wants.
  • The Plot – The series then turns into this follow up of that one-day escapade where she goes on a date with herself. With flashbacks from initial days and the current time, the story brings in more detail. For example, how the daughter goes through her mother’s old pictures while the father explains the little one why it’s not a “woman’s thing” to do. It does heat up your brain, doesn’t it? But frankly speaking, there are a lot of women who faces this issue even today.

It’s about the real, modern women who exactly know what they want and don’t put up with any sexist, misogynist nonsense.
