Dress to bag your dream JOB!

 dress.jpg

Dress for a job you aspire to have not the job you have. Job interviews are stressful enough with those tough questions and resume fretting over, you would not want to have one more thing to worry about with these. Whether you like it or not fashion matters when it comes to landing your dream job. 

Dress for the industry in which you’re interviewing, it is different while interviewing for a white-shoe law firm and a tech startup and your clothes should reflect that.

The IT industry has quite relaxed norms in terms of dressing up. That being said, you should not go wearing jeans and chappals!

Here are some things you could choose to wear:

Saree: You can choose to wear a simple cotton lightly printed saree with a plain simple blouse. Wear minimal jewellery, smartwatch, and earrings.

Salwar Kameez: A simple well-fitted salwar kameez would work well. Personally, I don’t think much of people who turn up wearing leggings for an interview. It just looks too casual (like you stepped out to buy some milk and entered an interview room).

Pair your salwar kameez with light jewellery. Make sure the dupatta (if you carry it) doesn’t have any bells / latkans / shells/coins or the like.

Formal pants: A pair of classic black slacks is an essential part of a women’s wardrobe. It’s worth it to invest in a pair of quality black dress pants that fit well and will hold up after many years.

Once you have a good pair of dress pants, it’s easy to dress them up or dress them down. You can pair your dress pants with a button-down shirt or a blazer for a formal look, or with a sweater for a business casual look.

With a bit of creativity, black dress pants don’t have to be boring. Add a top with an interesting detail, like this heather-gray sweater with black stripes and a button-down blouse. It softens the look and makes it a bit special.

Peep-toe heels with a moderate heel height are fashion-forward but still tasteful. If you’re looking to dress down your look, add a pair of ballet flats or loafers instead of heels.

Skirt: A skirt made of an interesting fabric or a simple black pencil skirt is a great way to make a business look your own.

The most important thing is to appear reliable, smart and well-dressed. It really doesn’t matter whether you are wearing western clothes or Indian. Your skills, education don’t depend on whether you wear a saree or a skirt. Wear you feel most comfortable in.

First impressions are critical. What you wear is the first thing people see, before you even speak a word. They don’t know you yet, and they don’t have a lot to go on.

All the best for your interviews! Smile and be confident and you will rock the show!

Diwali – It’s time to BAM!

Diwali is like the most awaited festival of the year. We all wait for it the whole year. We all celebrate it with great joy with our family and friends. Our reasons may be different to celebrate it, as there are many tales associated with it. The most common tale is that of Lord Rama returning to Ayodhya with his wife, Sita, and his brother, Lakshmana after an exile of 14 years and defeating Ravana.
The night of Diwali is moonless night or Amavasya so we lit diyas and candles. Diwali is hence called the festival of light and it feels like Indian Christmas for the uninitiated. 
Diwali is not only just yet another religious time of the year, it is much more. Colorful rangolis, resplendent diyas, mesmerizing firecrackers, mouthwatering food, nightlong card parties, vigorous gift giving and a massive dose of amusement and laughter with family and friends are all the ingredients that make up the recipe for a smashing Diwali.
Since Diwali is the most colorful and the vibrant festival you need to plan your outfit accordingly to capture the gaze and turn heads of masses.

 
For the morning time when you have to go and meet relatives or they come to your house. The time when you have to get all dressed up to mingle up with people. You don’t want to be overdressed at that time with your heavy lehenga.
What you want is something elegant yet dressy, something in which you are not overdressed for the occasion. Go to the salwar kameez route with its draped front or the traditional with light color breezy elegant saree.
For the game night of Diwali, the game of cards. You might want to wear something in the Indo western area.
Be it any occasion gowns are always fashionably elegant. So this Diwali let the glamorous gown and dreamy confections make everyone go gaga! To make it more classy carry a ritzy clutch.
Revamp your Diwali style this season by adding some modern taste to your traditional attire. Wear a body fitting tee with a long traditional skirt and perk up your attire with some old traditional jewellery

Navratri Celebrations


Navratri, we celebrate this festival with great enthusiasm every year. Navratri is a combination of two words, where ‘Nav’ means nine and ‘ratri’ means to be nights.

It is a festival of all nine days. In these nine days, we worship nine different forms of goddess Durga. Many of the people also opt for fasting and they wait an entire year to be part of this festival.

Any fast or a festival is incomplete without bhog. Navratri also has nine different kinds of bhog for each day having its own significance. There are nine different colours also for each day of this festival.

Day one of Navratri also known as ‘Pratipada’, we worship “Maa Shailputri”, the daughter of Himalayas. On this day cow’s ghee is offered to the goddess. This gives the devotee a disease-free life. The colour for this day is yellow.

The second day is ‘Dwitiya’. On this day Goddess Durga is worshipped as “Brahmacharini”. This form grants prosperity and emancipation. To increase the longevity of the devotee and his/her family members, sugar is offered to the goddess on this day. The colour for this day as per religion is green.

The third day of Navratri is known as ‘tritiya’ and goddess Durga is worshipped as “Maa Chandraghanta”. The third day of Navratri exhibits characteristics of bravery and courage. Grey is the colour for this day. It is believed that offering milkkheer and sweets made of milk helps to get rid of sorrows and pains in life.

On the fourth day of Navratri also known as the ‘chaturthi’, goddess Durga is worshipped in the form of “Kushmanda”. It is depicted to have 10 hands. The colour for this day is orange. As bhog to goddess Kushmanda, malpua is offered to the maan Durga goddess. It is believed that the universe is formed from the abdomen of the goddess. Offering malpua to goddess Kushmanda is believed to improve mental ability and decision-making power of the devotee.

A form of goddess Durga to be worshipped on the fifth day or the ‘panchami’ is “Skandmata”. Skandmata is depicted holding an infant Kartikey. It is traditional to wear white on this day. The bhog that we offer to goddess Skandmata on this is a banana. It is believed that offering banana helps to keep the physical health of the devotee.

On the sixth day ‘Shashti’, we worship goddess “Katyayani”. According to Hindu mythology, respected Kata performed several formalities to welcome the Goddess in the form of a daughter. Impressed with the devotion, the Goddess accepted his blessing. The child who was born to Kata came to be known as Katyayani. Honey is offered to the goddess on this day and this makes the devotee look charming and attractive. Color for this day is red.

‘Saptami’ or the seventh day. Goddess “Kalratri” is worshipped on this day. The goddess is portrayed having a dark complexion and aggressive posture. The colour for this day is royal blue. On this day we offer jaggery to the goddess for the removal of evil powers.

On the eighth day of Navratri or the ‘Ashtmi’ goddess, “Maha Gauri” is worshipped and this day symbolizes of purity, serenity and tranquillity, Mahagauri is said to put an end to all the suffering of her devotees. People offer fresh un-boiled milk, sweets made from mawa,halwa, black chana (gram) and fresh flowers to this goddess Later, these items are distributed as prasad among themselves.

Planning for long Weekends

WORK! WORK! WORK!   We all are very much occupied from Monday to Friday while continuously working at our desk with full dedication. Do not spare time for ourselves even when we are at home, What all we do after such a long tiring work is to eat and take rest during weekends, subsequently prepare ourselves for another upcoming Monday with all the tiring work grind again for rest of the week.

Who doesn’t want a break from routine? Who doesn’t want a long weekend to enjoy with family/friends?  Who does not want to rejuvenate so to face the tiring and routine lifestyle again in office?

Everyone wants a break from hectic routine. Everyone wants to have fun and relaxation without being tensed about work, meeting deadlines and stressed out due to the pressure of meeting expectations.

Pre Planning for Long Weekend Outing

But then again, while going for a long weekend, escaping from your daily routine comes with a price of planning and packing in advance.

Planning requires many things to be considered beforehand.What should I carry with me?What should I wear on the journey?

What kind of dress should I pack for the party, the dinner, and trip to explore the city?

There are many things, you have to plan to go for a long weekend outing.

Packing these kinds of stuff is not a difficult or tiring task; the difficult task is to decide.

It is to choose which garb to pack. Let us help you a little in this weary task.

Here are some ideas that you might wanna consider for attires to be packed.

“Travel and change of place impart new vigour to the mind.” Travelling is something which we all love. But even during travel, we have to clinch what clothes we want to wear. As it is very much important for us to be comfortable even during travel. These are some of the garbs you might want to take a look to determine from.

Dress by default – You never want to dress up like a bum or a hobo to go on a journey. You won’t want to overdo your look, but you won’t even want to look like someone who just woke up from the bed.


Dress up comfortably– Dressing up comfortably is a must. You won’t want to wear your tight jeans for travelling. Wearing some trousers, joggers who have some room in them are ideal to wear for a journey. Wearing fitting t-shirts or shirts in which we feel tight is never comfortable to wear for an expedition. It would be best if you go with your loose tees to wear for a trip.

Use quality luggage – Luggage is a vital thing for your travel. You would always want a luggage which would keep your clothing safe, keep you organized and at last your luggage should be able to take thumping here and there and still protect your gadgets. Luggage should be easy to carry and light in weight.

Comfortable shoes – Wearing comfortable shoes is as crucial as wearing a comfortable attire. You can never expect to have a comfortable journey wearing your heels or wedges or even your many straps boots. Wearing sports shoes & sneakers is the best option to go with other than slippers/floaters. Both slippers and shoes would be very comfortable for you to wear and remove whenever you wish without doing much work.

Some travelling tips and tricks that’ll help you a lot –

  • Pack less: Do you really need six pairs of heels, an iron and 6 jeans? Travelling with the least luggage should be your goal. Take less and you’ll travel faster and easier if travelling by flight then even cheaper.
  • Learn a little: Learning a new language never hurts. So learn few words o the local language and have the courage to use them. Just a few words will go a long way; locals tend to warm to those who try communicating to them in their own tongue.
  • Hoodie: Always pack a hoodie in your luggage. Hooded tops make excellent travel garments, just slip up your hood to retreat from the world of noise and light when you want to sleep.
  • Bring your earplugs: If silence is golden, then ear plugs are worth their weight in platinum. For a long trip, invest in some good noise cancelling headphones. They are worth every penny to tune out a noisy road, snoring man or chattering people.
  • Pack reading stuff: Always pack some stuff that you can read on your long journey, be it a paperback or Kindle. Kindle are made for long travels, no more carrying heavy paperbacks, increasing your luggage weight and have many books to read.
  • Roll your clothes while packing rather than folding them.
  • Carry Sun glasses & Sun Screens to take care of yourselves from  intense sun beams
  • Carry little extra cash: Always carry cash, while travelling. Not too much as it can get stolen and you’ll always have ATM to take out some cash. Carrying some cash is required as what if the ATM you go to stopped working or doesn’t have cash. So have some cash with you that you can use when necessary.
  • Keep balm / Mosquito repellent: Balm not only soothes your sore muscles after a lot of travelling but also works as an insect repellent, mosquito repellent is other must have in the travel.
  • Wake up early: Rise before sunrise, it’s a magical time for clicking photos due to soft diffused light. Have the best attractions to yourself while avoiding crowds.
  • Don’t feel embarrassed: Even if you do something embarrassing, don’t feel embarrassed. Laugh at yourself with others. Don’t be afraid if things are screwed up. You will definitely look like a fool while travelling to new places. But it’s worth enjoying every moment.
  • Take a lot of photos: Great photos are ultimate souvenirs. You meet those people once so capture with your camera in a form of photo.
  • Back up: Keep a backup of your documents like passport, driver’s license, etc. backup your files and photos of your computer on an external hard drive and online with some storage in the cloud. You never know when your laptop, wallet or luggage might get stolen.
  • Get lost: Write down the name of your hotel so you can catch a taxi back if needed, then just pick up a direction and start walking. Explore the place on your own. You’ll get to see how people live and work in different regions, the actual part of the town with your own eyes rather than other tourist or someone else’s eyes.
  • Eat local food: Going to a new place and not eating their local food, that’s absurd. Go, eat and explore their taste and delicacies.
  • Break out of your comfort zone: Go on a solo trip. Break out of your comfort zone, meet new people, interact with them, learn from them and make some lifetime memories.

Well, we need to really work well before we start our unforgettable journey ….Have a wonderful time!!!
