Of course, I know I’m doing it. I have been doing it since my junior years at school and it is something that every man wants to do after a hectic day. What is bad about doing something that is not going to harm anyone? What do you do when you meet someone mesmerizing? You smile, talk, buy a drink and then you do it! It is like you are in heat and you both want to do it so bad that you do not even remember next morning that who started it and where it all ended. Yeah-Yeah, some people say that you should not let your guards down so soon but do you really give a damn when someone compliments you and you get washed away with the high current? Nah, you never, I can bet on it. Even mature good-looking people have no control on it. All they do is just smile and let the things happen so that they can smile about throughout the next day.

Oops, before you get a wrong meaning out of whatever I said above, let me clear the air. I was talking about- Flirting, an Art practiced by the people who use their happy hormones in a correct manner and depend less on emotions. This art has been the integral part of the royal courts and has been passed-down from generations to generations to ensure that men and women have something more to do with drinks. Queen Cleopatra, the real queen of flirting was the first lady to make the royal courts cry over their bankruptcy and wives for their love-stung husbands. Being a Flirt is a sin in the society as you are looked down upon as a Charmer, Wing-man, Player, Mack Daddy and more. The inevitable fact about being a flirt, which is always ignored, is that you are capable to wooing people within seconds when other spend eternity and are never successful. You walk in a room, make an eye contact with a person and you know where to concentrate all your energy.

Flirting is an art that can be used in one’s own advantage aswell. Coy smile, a slight tilt of the head, the slow brush of an imaginary hair from the colleague’s suit, the twinkly laugh and what not, everybody on the earth is doing it just to get their work done by hook or crook. It is not a malpractice; it is just a playful approach towards a scenario that can lead to a heated discussion. The trick is to do this while understanding the social cues. It also makes you more conscious about yourself. You end up taking more care of your face, the way you walk, the way you dress and the way you communicate. So the end result is all positive and you are looking fab-u-lous! Flirting is way to gain self-confidence and is a natural source of positive energy.
It’s the ultimate power tool. I just cannot stop myself reaping it’s benefits. So people just don’t sit der behind your desks, freshen up and approach the one you always wanted to talk to. Because that person is not going to bite you in the public (atleast)!


Me – “You know what, I feel like a vampire, thirsty for the fresh blood from pulsating nerves of your cervical neck”
She – What?
Me – “Yes, your eyes are making me lose myself and overpowering my senses.”
Me- “Wanna fell my racing beats in just your mere presence; I have no idea what else you are capable of?”

PAUSE-FROWN, RED FACE, fingers rolling into a FIST.

She- “Mr. I am taken”
Me- “I just wish all the luck to the man who dared to touch the goddess with his bare hands.”
She- Her sparkling whites, twinkle in eyes and rose red cheeks expressed how flattered she was.

1 down, that’s not bad but one down at the starting of a crazy night ahead is a serious low down. Yes, I can spring back and flatter any woman in 360-degree view but a defeat at the beginning, pull some strings back on a serious note. It is not hard to take a defeat but forgetting it is as difficult as forgetting your boss shouting in the glass torture chamber. Every word from the boss echoes when a girl turns you down on your face. As such, flirts are known for ‘Have no respect at table and in bed’ attitude. However, they also have letdown moments which they do not even want der ‘chaddi-buddies’ to known about. We have a tradition to save, follow the guidance passed down by our flirty ancestors and never let anyone tarnish our ever-sparkly image.

We are not born on Mars and sent to earth to ruin the nights of over protective boyfriends or worried dads with big riffles. We are just here to have a good time and walk out of the crowded bar with a beauty on the arms, if we are in mood to take the whole scene one-step further. Flirting gives us a kick that no drug can give. The flushed expressions, biting lips, twinkling eyes and that trustful tilt of your body towards us makes us go on and on to reach the epitome of the whole conversation. It’s like a stage performance where you need to impress some hand full of people but the only difference here is you are all alone and you have to have energy of the whole troop to impress one person. This is an art that can mess up your day or make someone else’s day as who doesn't like to be bombarded with compliments. But what you need to keep in mind is that flirting is an art to cool down your muscles, relive your stress and let the happy hormones flow to various parts of your body. Sheer optimism drives the whole art form and can help you meeting new people and make contacts at power tables. So never, let your guards down, spray a new fragrance and put up a classy appearance with a sparkly smile to impress the next one.  I think the girl in blue is smiling at me, so bye and forget what I revealed to you just now! Ciao

Magpie’s Little Charmer

Every other school has a special child who is tiny, intelligent, bubbly, jumpy and has shining white teeth. This is the child that stands in front of the line, can push his way through the crowd, can have as many candies possible and can make a tall kid feel short with his charm. Seldom remembered for wisdom and charm, this kid is just a one-day star. He is a Magpie with a thousand shades of charm but gets to shine only when observed with a binocular in the dense forest. That’s the situation of the Brooch, a little member of the jewellery family who is forgotten by the world with the passage of time. This little master with shiny jewels and a charm to die for has lived through generations- appearing now and then. Still makes an appearance when the fashion world is in dire need of it.

Brooch is a jewellery item that was used for holding the garment in place. This long lost clasp was born in 3300 BC but nobody gave a thought that a clasp can be the next big thing in the Y2K fashion world. It is the best pick to breathe some fresh life into a tailored business suit or pep up a black fedora. A brooch acts like a sensible jewellery piece that can be worn by both men and women without overdoing it. This magic touch of fairy godmother is made in various metals like bronze, copper, steel, silver, gold and studded with crystals, pearls, beads, semi-precious and even diamonds. Brooch is the only accessory type that crosses the sub-culture divides and be worn year round.

Magpie, go ahead and flaunt this amazing piece of art at following places with some tips:

a. Brunch/Lunch: Just remember that all that gaudy stuff can be saved for the afterhours (when nobody watching). So grab the delicate ones that have some tidbits hanging from them or just a single metal insect brooch will do the justice. Just don’t stick it to your upper shoulder or lapel, try new places like belts, ties, shirt collar or placket of your Chinese collar shirt.

b. Office: Don’t try to impress your manager with loud pieces as you cannot afford them to go blind in your appraisal meeting. Go for the subtle type, opt for the very simple bow style brooches or handmade brooches.

c. Party: Unleash your lust for gaudy stuff and opt for art deco brooches or Vintage style brooches. Just make sure it compliments your spiked slip-ons or printed scarfs. Just a request, please do not go overboard with your love for sparkle.

You can wear the brooches with an ease and without giving a dim about how it will look on you. Now please do not imagine that I will be giving you a tour de vintage, let me introduce you to some of the bobbing trends:

1. Pin Style Brooch:

Basic design revolves around a safety pin that has tidbits hanging or stuck on them.

2. Vintage style Brooch:

These are designed keeping in mind the golden era and a hit these days because of Game of Thrones.

3. Felt Brooch:

Made using fabric, threads, buttons and beads, these ones are a rage after Jay Z flaunted one recently in the photo op for a magazine.

Ed Hardy

As such, I was never a very big fan of Ed Hardy. Never even thought of entering their stores or checking their collection anywhere, as I always believed that skulls are good for coffins not clothes. Recently I started going through their designs and really liked some watches, which can be called as ‘SUBTLE’. Apart from their very loud skull tattoo collection, they have some items that one can wear and not regret buying those. Christian Audigier, the god behind the creation of this out loud brand, has combined the elements of vintage punk with his inspiration Don Ed Hardy.

Sometimes, it is good to have a brand name that actually talks loud about what you have in store or what can be expected out of you. I must say that has done justice to the name by featuring some of the best collections. Do check out the WLIFW spring/summer 2013 collection that they are selling online. They are rolling high on fashion and that is what is expected out of an eCommerce venture. If you can provide us with clothes that a store salesman can do then please stop calling yourself a fashion/lifestyle giant of the online world. We need sites that can offer exclusive stuff at amazing prices. Exclusive here doesn't mean you are going to push rejected stuff that is never going to see the luminosity of the mall stores or ever going to be draped around the body of the mannequin. As a shopper who is stuck or in reality trapped in the walls of the the office, I want stuff which is perfect for my body type, I don't need to try it or think thousand times about its quality. So big flaming eCommerce ventures, please wake up and stop featuring products that are from the old collection of some famous brand or are so pathetic that your girlfriend might break-up with you if you even thought about clicking on "Add to the Cart" button. 

One brand that is turning out to be my latest MUSE. I have fallen head over heels for the cuts and fabrics used to create a collection that is mind-blowing to every stitch. At the present, has cufflinks, shirts and jackets from the brands collection. What I really like about this brand how they have mixed the modern fabrics with the conventional designs and cuts to create a piece that is not loud, dull or complete disaster. Take a look at some of the pieces from their collection:

Online business is booming like hell and taking over the business of sprawling malls across the country. Only thing where they are lagging behind is serving the users with Chilly Potatoes with Ice Tea!! There breakeven is not that great but are able to take over the undivided attention of the consumers who once felt that they cannot purchase without feeling the fabric. They are coming up with collections that you will not be able to find under the big banner retail chains. And what is remarkable is the quality combined with over-the-edge designs that are priced at prices that will astonish you. Here I am not talking about the Online Giants who just dump their websites with products and products without even looking at the designs or cuts. I am talking about the websites that have recently cropped-up and are acquiring market share at a steady pace. One such brand name is INKFRUIT.COM.

Some of the products from its collection are as follows:
(Starting with LED T-shirts that I recently ordered at very reasonable prices)

Quirk Box

Many a times, I just tend to surf the net aimlessly. That is the time I get lucky the most and to prove this little unbelievable myth, I have something that I plan to buy next month. This is a little extraordinary and out of my fashion scoop. I have never worn such a thing in my life and never dared to. But this time, I  ought to buy it as my gut feeling says that I will be able to carry it off. I know many of you will not take my idea seriously after taking a look at it but I want this piece for sure. Here I present, a quirky jacket tagged as Toy Factory Soldiers by Quirk Box.

When I start buying anything in this world, I become mad about it. For instance, If I buy a jeans, I will end up buying as many pairs of jeans as possible in a single month. RESULT - Broke by the month end and all the jeans dying in my wardrobe.  This time it is "laptop bags". First I thought of Hidesign but after looking at my wallet I gave up. Then, I started looking up for some variable options that can fit my pocket and also keep in the fashion loop. Came across this wonderful website called I am telling you one thing for sure, if these guys kept on pushing this collection of unique stuff, they are going to land in deep trouble. And that trouble is called "Group of Shopholic Maniacs" and I am one of these. On this amazing site I found something that actually amazed me. "Dejainer", a brand that took its inspiration from the mix of modern and Indian lifestyle.
