Meghna Beauty Parlor Completes 40 Happy & Successful Years with Sincerity & Dedication

Hariet Tubman had once quoted “Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”

And a recent visit to Meghna Parlor in Green Park, Delhi made me believe in this quote from the core of my heart. Meghna Parlor recently celebrated its 40th successful anniversary and the occasion was truly grand.

Since the last 40 years, this beauty property has been serving I was fortunate enough to meet the shapers behind this prosperous venture. Meghna Beauty Parlor is a plush property that began its journey through the hands of Mr. and Mrs. Goel, two passionate dreamers who believed in the core mantra that dedication and determination can overpass anything. And their dream baby completed 40 glorious successful years with all charm and might a few days back.

I happened to be a part of the celebrations and learn a lot about this journey. Meghna Beauty Parlor named after Mr. And Mrs. Goel’S daughter Meghna, had been started 40 years back just as a small dream and an equally small set up. With only two staff as the team, Mr. And Mrs. Goel themselves, Meghna Parlor seemed a hard dream to pursue. In the words of Manish Goel, the renowned television actor, Mr. Goel’s son, Continuing Meghna Parlor was challenging but Mr. Goel had a single mantra; Never to return a single customer from the desk.” Mr. And Mrs. Goel were both the beautians, the hair stylists, the laundry staff, the cleaners at once. At present Meghna Beauty Parlor boasts of a huge team of minimum 100 staff with an elaborate setting of three spacious floors.

M

Moreover when asked about Meghna’s plans about extending franchisee into other cities, Manish Paul said that Meghna is like a baby that has been nurtured by his parents since the last 40 years and hence passing it’s legacy to somebody else’s hands would not be a wise decision.

This parlor situated in the bustling hub of Green Park has been the reason for beautifying thousands of people. Generations after generations have been their customers and the only reason for their success is the humility and dedication with which they offer their services.

Beginning from usual beauty treatments to a host of other treatments like nail studios and make up packages, Meghna believes in providing an array of services in the most affordable ranges.

We wish Meghna Parlor many more years of success just like this. May your magical hands continue beautifying people just like it has been doing since the last 40 years.

3 ways to use the same bedsheet – but give different looks to your room: Inputs From Expert Sonam Gupta

It’s that time of the year when agai you start preparing afresh for the upcoming year ahead. Christmas celebrations are knocking at the door and yes you definitely need to think somethiBedsheets are a key ingredient in the overall decoration of the room. And, there is away to say it all through a single decorative concept. You might like to use the same bed layover in different combinations to heighten the bedroom décor. A single piece of bedsheet may be able to do it all. All you need to do is try some permutations and combinations and go coordinate the colours, shapes and patterns of the same bed cover with the flow of the room. Depending on your choice of a bedcover, you can decide to alter the look and feel of your room, aplenty.

Here are 3 ways to use the same bedsheet for different looks in your room.

  1. The focal point is the bedsheet you have used. Take into account the colour, design or the pattern and match it up with the extra layer of cushions on the bed. Yes, throws using a lot of cushions is for convenience and fashion together. Don’t just do by laying cushions on the bed. The idea is to use decorative cushion covers which too are amply available.

These cushion-made cover designs and style look fabulous for everyday décor. Take, for example, the Indie-Tadka design covers adding zing and life to your otherwise simple décor. If you are using an Indie Tadka bedcover, then, a perfect match of cushion cover can be found in the self-embroidered Bronze or Red to add sheen to the complete layover. You can try and match different colours to make it vibrant yet not loud and noisy. Try the mix and match with a neutral shade in between a vibrant colour like a red or a purple. It will instantly add the gloss in a subtle and sober way. On an occasion, you can make your choice between the sheen and the shimmering of red and bronze respectively.

2. Again, with a bedsheet at the nucleus, take time to look for duvets and comforters. These are extra layers on the bed and when kept in a nice, folded way, it definitely heightens the look and feel of the complete décor. Such is the layered prominence. They can almost cover a three-fourth portion of the bed before they get wrapped on the bed nicely in the one-neat thick fold.

There are duvet covers available in solids like red and blue will immediately attract attention yet look sober and sleek in their own style. With an Indigo Blue, you will never overdo the bedroom décor. However, your prime stuff, which is the bedsheet, pillow, and now the duvet, should never look displeasing to each other. It is therefore important to try good colour combinations or contrasts, as you may personally prefer. A white base sheet will help you in choosing more vivid colours, while an already bold colour and design on the bedsheet will compel you to choose something soberer like a neutral Wheat or a Desert Safari duvet colour cover.

3. The whole bedsheet décorincluding the pillows, cushions, duvets or as you please it to be, has to be adequately and appropriately matched with the window curtains. It is important since draperies are always of flowing length and add a lot to the grace and elegance of fabrics in the bedroom. Your bed dressing is incomplete if you don’t find a suitable match in the window curtains.

Even if you don’t have too much window length like floor to ceiling, it is still recommended to use high fall curtains, especially on the top. If you keep a bit outwards length, it will create an illusion of grandeur. Do it only if you wish to highlight the bedroom décor using curtains. Even if you use mid-length curtains, it still makes room to match it up with the bedsheet in design and colours. Usually, a multi-coloured bed sheet must be matched with curtains of neutral or a solid colour. Pick up the colour which is most prominent on the bed dressings, like in a multi-colour display there is always a certain shade which gains precedence over the rest. Use that one shade to add aglow to the complete décor of your room.

So here were some brilliant hacks from the connoisseur, Sonam Gupta, the designing head Tangerine.

Design to Sonam is an aesthetic solution. “Everyday continues to inspire me – colour palettes as seen in cityscapes and our surroundings. I am intrigued by textures seen in nature, in humans and all around us. India as a country has always been an inspiration for its rich culture and textiles. We are known for our flamboyant usage of colours and patterns. The country has also carved out a significant spot for itself on the global fashion map.”

“Tangerine Design Studio ; built by colour lovers, storytellers, perfection obsessed quirky designers who aim to bring  fashion to our customers’ lifestyle through a whole new range of Home products thereby giving home a new style identity. Colour has always been the focal point for our collection. I am constantly in sync with the trends and forecast all over the world. The challenge is really to identify and modify the trends to make them suitable for our Indian customers.”

Thank You Sonam for such beautiful inputs.

Decor had never been so simplified before!

India RunWay Week 2017 Summer Dedicated To Weavers’ Craftsmanship

 India Runway Week has always been a home to multiple new talents, fresh designers and fresh talents. Amalgamating cultures and reflecting them through the stream of fashion is something India Runway Week always holds to its credits.

Time to witness this charismatic explosion of fashion through the captivating work of weavers this time at India Runway Week starting from the 28’th of April.

It would seem that no matter how big the India Runway Week gets, there you will always find fresh new names. Of course, the old designers continue every season. This is the 8th season of India Runway Week which is starting from 28th of April.

The weavers of India are its biggest assets. Indian hand woven fabrics have been known since time immemorial. India was famous even in ancient times as an exporter of textiles to most parts of the civilized world but throughout history and currently too there are evidences that show that weavers have always been a victim of a staunch hierarchical system. Being at the bottom of the system they fall prey to the extreme forms of exploitation.

There are organizations that are identified as a promising means of raising voice for them and generating livelihood for hundreds of rural artisans. They have made a significant contribution to the lives of the women artisans working with it, which has helped improve their economic as well as social status.

They strive to bring the traditions of India to customers all around the world with its unique creations and products. It not only helps its artisans become wage earners, but also spreads awareness about the traditional crafts of the region, thus helping preserve a rich part of India’s national cultural heritage. Indian Federation for fashion Development have joined hand with four of these organizations i.e Rangsutra, SoCHE, Banka Silk and Gestures by Kriti who will present the work of artisans at current season of India Runway Week Summer 2017 ramp which is starting from 28th of April to 30th of April 2017

“The purpose of this show is to raise the current conditions of the weavers and to propose the importance of such organizations and social security to the custodians of this ageless art.” Said by Fashion director, Kiran Kheva, India Runway Week

Rangsutra is a craft company of thousand artisans from remote regions of India – the desert regions of Rajasthan and plains of Eastern Uttar Pradesh whereas SoCHE is reviving this languishing and less popular hand embroidery practiced by women around the border areas of Barmer. Banka Silk on other hand is imparting the required skills to the weaver’s community of Banka, connecting them with the markets and helps create an Eco-system wherein the weaver’s community can become self-sustainable. And lastly Gestures by Kriti is a livelihood support and outreach initiative that began in 1999, to promote ethical, sustainable and socially conscious thinking & buying of ‘community made’ products.

So get ready for the fashion dose in the upcoming weekend. Stay tuned to Social Connoisseurs For All India Runway Week updates.

By Adab: The Best Pick For The Gifting Season

With Diwali and Bhaidooj festivities around, gifting is the flavor of the season. Moreover with the  wedding ceremonies nearing soon, you must be brainstorming about a great gift, that is unconventional as well as extraordinary. If clothing and accessories have become too stereotyped and usual for you as a gift, we have the best solutions curated for you.

By Adab: The Perfect Partner For Your Bed and Bath Linen Choices

Recently We chanced to come across By Adab, a signature brand of bath linen and bed linen. A visit to their Greater Kailas Store turned out to be an indeed cherishable experience considering the wide range of products they have.

Not to disregard any popular brand, but most of the colossal home furnishing Indian Brands fail to live up to the expectations of the consumers. Either the colours fade out soon or may be there is a sudden roughness observed and sometimes even the textures start showing signs of dullness. Surprisingly, By Adab fills none of the aforementioned flaws.

By Adab, though the name signifies an Urdu way of greeting “Adab” actually here pertains to the joined nomenclatures of the founders, Aditya and Abhinav Aggarwal.

adab

An interaction with the founders helped us to understand the features of the products better and these are the top 5 features for which we can proudly choose it to be the best gift for Diwali or the wedding season:

  • By Adab’s bed linens share a rare quality, “the more you wash, the more it becomes soft and polished”. In fact this is probably the first unique brand of its kind that could proclaim such a feature in home furnishings. We were shown a few samples that have been washed almost 25 times and the finish as well as textures remained to be exactly the same of a new one.cherry-berry-bamboo-stripe
  • A wide and classy variety is another USP of the brand. You have the choicest of collections like Mrs. Select, Mrs. Rajputana, Mrs. CherryBerry,Mrs. A++ and definitely the Bunny Bath bath linen collection. From your bespoken furnishings to your regular use, By Adab can proudly fulfill all your demands. Some of the collections are such user-friendly that you can fold them and carry them easily during your travels.fountain-flower-brown
  • A special word of appreciation should definitely be given to a signature collection named Mrs. Eucacel. This collection made from absolute eucalyptus plant cells is a great partner for skin care. Apart from the medicinal properties of eucalyptus plants, it is also enriched with the goodness of Vitamin E, that is a soothing friend for your skin without an iota of doubt. Moreover this special collection, being bio-degradable in nature makes you feel warm in winters and cool in summers. Isn’t it a perfect pick??mrs-eucacel-leaf-green
  • Their quality guarantee is another feature for which we would highly recommend them. The 200 Threads/Sq to 1100 Threads/Square is a rare feature that bed linens share. In fact most of the bed linen manufacturers do not reveal the threads/square information because of their flawed qualities. By Adab’s transparency about their quality was reinforced by their detailed product showcase and descriptions.
  • The best part of By Adab is they are completely environment-friendly. In fact without the use of any feathers for their quilts and towels or pillows, they have not harmed the interests of the animals at all. This makes the products friendlier towards children’s skin as well as allergic skins too.

So if you are concerned about making the best pick of a gift, By Adab can surely be your perfect choice. It is not only the premium choice for gifting but also a promising option when it comes to your personal home décor. After all who would not want to have a skin-friendly bed linen at his/her place?
