Our life revolves around our bags: My favourite picks from Jivaana

What can make a dull outfit spark? Yes, its accessories- from what you are wearing on the neck to what you are carrying in your hand.

One of my favourite accessory is the one which I use to store my essentials. Be it a lipstick, wet tissues or my phone, it goes in my purse so that I can just take it out when I require it. Continue Reading

Ranjit’s SVAASA: A Heritage Boutique Spa Haveli at Amritsar – Part II

ChicLifeByte told you about the wonderful stay and hospitality of Ranjit’s SVAASA: A Heritage Boutique Spa Haveli at Amritsar. The ancestral property was built 200 years ago by Ratan Chand Mehra, a prominent person of his time. He had contributed to the society by opening up blind schools, gaushala, a family mandir as well as a hospital for TB, all of which are running till date.

However, special things were retained which include 18 inch thick walls, there is mud inside the ceiling which helps in insulation, bricks are nanakshati (special bricks packed with mud, no cement is used in walls).
