Glitz & glamour

Time, love and venue... It all affects your relationship
Reposing on a comfortable sofa in your living room with comely feet on the center table, you have been asking yourself the same question over and over — will it last or fade away into the recycle bin of impressive memory like a deleted file? The reason behind your anxiety is not hard to analyse.

New trends
Wear jewellery, but with caution
Hey kids, go in for some real nice jewellery. Before that, go through a list of deadly sins you should not be committing with your alluring bracelets and striking rings.
First of all, make sure you are not wearing too much of the stuff. Piling too many rings looks odd. “Ramola Sikand may be wearing so many of them in a serial on the television, but chances are that the crowd will not see you as a hip-chick.

What's in, what's out
Mix and match, but forget all about pierced ears
Mix and match is in. So folks do not just walk into a showroom and buy the combination being offered by the staff. Go in for something "more original". Use your own creativity to bring out the designer in you.

Take care while it rains
The rainy season is here. But that does not mean that you can forget all about getting your face and arms tanned. Rather, you will have to take extra precaution. Go in for a "water-proof" sunscreen. One that will not be washed away. Also remember, the natural your sunscreen, the better it is.
