Nothing better than a Ranbir Kapoor sighting, a spa date with your favourite girl and a vegetarian steak tasting on your day off!
Alice & Celery’s spa date
Celery and I had been planning a spa date for a while. When we heard Richfeel – the d-tox spa had opened in Breach Candy, we had to check it out. I picked evening as the time to go because I’m too busy sleeping and finishing work during the day. It turned out that an evening massage was just what we needed. It relaxes you in time for a light meal and puts you to bed right after.
Richfeel Spa Menu
I’m not a fan of oil massages. I prefer cream massages or dry massages. Although the Richfeel spa has 4 spacious rooms with individual shower/steam areas, I was in the mood for something dry. I opted for the Refloxology – Dry Therapy. Continue reading
So, on my day off yesterday, I attended the Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani trailer launch and press conference.

Have you watched the trailer yet?
I don’t know what new this film is going to offer. But it seems like a fun summer flick! I’m definitely going to watch, also because I love Ranbir Kapoor.
The press conference was fun, with a lot of journos asking questions about Ranbir-Deepika’s relationship, their tattoos, etc. Ranbir Kapoor, of course, knew the right things to say and came to everyone’s defence. Karan Johar obviously knew this was going to happen and played along, interrupting and diverting questions back to the film at the right moments.

It’s just a good outing when there’s a Ranbir sighting involved and a topping of Aditya Roy Kapur.
So, what do you think of the trailer? Doesn’t the last line serve as a good teaser? Are you excited to watch the film? Waiting to know.
I’m still trying to get some clarity on this. I thought Rochelle Pinto wrote the book titled Kareena Kapoor – The Style Diary Of A Bollywood Diva but the Internet has various versions of who wrote it. Anyway, both Kareena and Rochelle looked great at the book launch. Kareena’s picture landed in my inbox. She wore Tom Ford. You like?

Also, what do you think of the hair and make-up? I love how sleek the hair is and I’m a sucker for red lips anyway. I think she carries it off really well.
One of the interesting things about being a blogger is that you get invited to various showcases put up by international and local brands and get to learn so much more (than an average consumer) about a product you’re gonna buy. Needless to say, I was very intrigued when I was invited for Skechers’ Spring Summer ’13 showcase.
Selected few from Skechers’ SS ’13 collection
Surprisingly, Skechers is a fairly young brand (just about 20 years old). The company primarily produced lifestyle shoes but has now branched out into performance and sport shoes as well. We got a peek at the best shoes across all 3 categories.
And I learnt some really interesting things. Like, some styles have a completely flexible sole. You can actually fold the shoe completely, carry it with you and when you retrieve it, it will take its original shape. Cool, right? Certain styles have a memory foam sole. Heard of the memory foam mattress? Yep, same concept. The sole takes the shape of your foot and returns to its original form when not worn. I was impressed. Most of the styles have a mid-foot strike as opposed to a heel strike. So when you walk, run or exercise, the weight of your foot strikes the middle of the shoe, giving you a better grip and balance. Who knew?
My favourite shoe from the Skechers’ SS’13 collection
This particular one above is my favourite shoe from the Skechers’ SS ’13 collection. Have you realised we most often buy ‘sport shoes’ in a white or grey colour? Why do we do that? So, I picked this black one. I like the pink accents. And they’re super comfy when you wear them. Also, the price point is great, only Rs 2999. Not a bad investment I say.
Which style is your favourite? Maybe I can tell you an interesting fact or two about it.
