nOir jewelry designer, Leeora Catalan has been accessorizing the Gwen Stefani’s L.A.M.B collections for two seasons now. So it only made sense for them to put their efforts together to create a collection solely for L.A.M.B. What came next was a bit surprise…Leeora kept Gwen’s rocker sense of style and brought in Indian touches to each jewelry piece! How cool is that? i’ve always adored Gwen’s style. It is so spot on, people want to see her mix of rocker and fashion.
The collection will be available at department stores and online at noirjewelry.com starting early February.

Life has been a bit crazy for me lately…(8 week old twins and a toddler:). Shall I say more. It’s always nice to have reminders about the things that are important. That is how I discovered this manifesto poster by Holstee. I eagerly looked up the company and fell in love their story and products. Two brothers, along with a business partner started the company without a business plan in mind but instead created a mantra “This is your LIFE”, which has been seen over 50,000,000 times!
Another meaningful product that caught my attention is Holstee’s Upcycled Wallet. Working with an NGO in India, Holstee came up with a ‘no two alike’ wallet made from recycled plastic bags and newspapers collected from the streets of Delhi.
Check out this video based upon the Manifesto. This video will be part of my new morning routine! Sometimes certain words are so encouraging. Life is all about that. Thank you HOLSTEE.

BollyInstyle has given me a chance to read incredible stories on how people start their little ventures. Some make it and some don’t, but usually there’s a universal theme where ideas comes together after discovering a void in the market.
Kit Bhatti’s story is simple yet inspiring. In just one year, she opened up Ruby Rani after noticing her daughter’s reluctancy of wearing Eastern style clothing because of its discomfort. My sentiments exactly. Indian-wear for children is just not made with comfort in mind. It’s usually itcy for the little ones and the ornate sequin style dresses never has lining underneath.
Well, thank goodness for Runy Rani’s breathable tees and indian outfits. I love that the outfits have snaps on the bottom for easy dressing and simple diaper changing.
Hurry readers! Ruby Rani is currently giving away 30% off on all products with free delivery.

Hi everyone! Richa here from Mala Handmade. Winter season gives me the chance to accessorize! It’s the perfect excuse to layer beautiful scarves, jewelry, and other accessories before they are buried under my giant puffer coat. Some of these accessories should no doubt come from Micky London.
Launched in September 2009 by Abba and Micky Manchanda, the sibling team sibling duo set out to offer a brand that brings sophisticated, sexy, unique assortments of fashion scarves, jewelry and item ready-to-wear pieces to its customers. They’ve had great success – log on to Anthropologie and Nordstromto find some of their designs! Their tie-dye endless scarves would be a great accent piece for weekend casual – I love the mix of colors. And some of their scarves are really unique – a mix of fabric and jewelry that can be looped around the neck for warmth with the jeweled end left out for a bold bit of sparkle. I can’t leave out their crystal shawls – I really love the delicate hint of Swarovski shine at the ends of the elegant length of fabric.
