‘Celebrate Women. Celebrate Womankind.’ Women’s Day Special!

As the month of March approaches, the hype about womankind’s improvement increases. But is one day, the 8th of March, enough to applaud the women around the world. Women have at every point and every turn had to prove their existence to the male chauvinistic world. And by every passing day the world began to slowly realise that women had a lot more to offer to this world than just three meals a day, mopping and laundry.

Rising from the blocked voices were sounds of few women who voiced out the shrieks and sobs of millions. And slowly those whispers became audible to the entire world and women began to bloom. They got out of their houses, tried to chase their dreams despite the cynical remarks of the world and began to live for the first time.

And today, the world has witnessed how women are excellent in multi-tasking and are perfectionists. We are living in a world where women have carved a niche in every field of occupation and every stream of education. Women are great artists, leaders and entrepreneurs yet make great homemakers.

5 ways to actually keep your New Year’s resolutions!

New year.
New beginnings.
Starting afresh.

We all dream of this at the end of every December.

“Oh, next year I am going to follow all the resolutions that I couldn’t keep up with this year!” we would exclaim.

This 2014, why not actually keep them?

Healthy-Resolutions-for-2014

Traditsiya brings to you 5 different ways to actually keep your New Year’s Resolutions:

1. Bring the Resolution in small chunks

Don’t make a short list of huge goals. Make a list with many smaller goals or break down huge goals into smaller goals. If you need to put down 20 resolutions, go for it!
The smaller your goals are, the faster it is for you to accomplish them. One goal accomplished and it will serve as motivation enough for your next chunk of the goal!

2. Print or write out copies of your resolutions.

Save a copy on each computer or electronic device you own, such as your smart phone, iPad, Note, Laptop.
Make a smaller copy and keep it in your wallet.
Keep a copy of it and stick it to your work desk.
Post a copy on the outside of your refrigerator.

3. Find a mentor or a Resolution – partner

Set up dates for evaluation with a mentor. This helps you to stay focused and evaluates methods for improvement. Having a group, partner, friend, or professional to encourage you can be a great way to keep you going. Try finding a friend who has a similar resolution, and check in with each other every week to talk about your progress and challenges.

4. Talk about it

Most people like to keep quiet about their goals, in case they fail. Well, we don’t want to fail at them, do we? Talk about it to people around you. They will act as reminders to keep up with the goals. Share your experiences with family and friends. Consider joining a support group to reach your goals, such as a workout class at your gym or a group of coworkers quitting smoking. Having someone to share your struggles and successes with makes your journey much easier, more fun and less intimidating.

5. Reward yourself!

When making your plan, a vital feature should be the rewards and treats you will give yourself at those all-important milestones. But be warned, don’t fall into the trap of putting your goal in danger – it’s too easy for a dieter to say “I’ve been so good, I deserve a few candy bars”, or a saver to throw caution to the wind with a new purchase. One slip, and it could all be over.New year.

Mailing Christmas greetings and gifts to your loved ones is the oldest tradition and an extremely sweet gesture. Why not give it an intimate touch this time by just adding a Christmas wreath or a Christmas holly in red and green. Traditional yet contemporary, just like Traditsiya, isn’t it? :D

How can we possibly neglect Christmas sweets? But we are aware of the hundreds of recipes that you might be already aware of or an expert chef would impart on his website or TV show. That’s why the only DIY tip for sweets is that decorate the sweets with the conventional red and green frosting- make a wreath or a holly or just an outline of a Christmas tree, and see the magic. You never know Santa might just get too tempted to taste one of them.

The joyous connotation of Diwali

It’s Diwali. Yayy!! The day to rejoice, celebrate and spread happiness. Diwali holds with it infinite meanings. The three most celebrated implications of the festival of lights includes the long awaited and magnificent return of Lord Rama to his Kingdom of Ayodhya after his fourteen year long banwas, exile,  in the forests. The second meaning comes from Lord Krishna’s admired victory over the demon Narakaasura who had abducted and terrified the gopis of Vrindavan. The third one is the much-celebrated marriage of Bhagwan Vishnu with Maha Laxmi with unmatched elation and festivity.

IMG-20131101-WA0020

At the core of it, Diwali literally means ‘Row of Lights’. Need we say anything more? As mentioned above, all the three main reasons for celebrating Diwali reinstates the triumph of good over evil, of virtue of deceit, and above all, of bright lights over darkness. Lets spread this joy, instead of just dressing up for Diwali and celebrating with family, relatives and friends, take a step ahead. Spend sometime with the children in an orphanage, or maybe with some elders in an old age home. The bliss, the exultation that this act will bless you with, no dinner or get together can make you feel that way.

Warli – The Beautiful Folk Art

‘Traditsiya: The Contemporary Tradition’ – the name of this passionate brand has been inspired by the diverse and plush tradition of India. We admire each and every aspect of this rich heritage and one of the great arts that caught our attention is ‘Warli’. Warli art dates its history back in the seventies as paintings that were decorated and painted on the walls of homes. This art is not like any other folk art that illustrates deities or mythological stories that was distinct to the tribal communities. But this was a more realistic and contemporary art back then and even now, that expressed the tribal lives in flamboyant styles.

The Warlis tribe, an indigineous group of people closely knit together, executed this rich folklore on the walls of their houses, since they were not conversant with the written lexicon. This was their way to express themselves reflecting the close implication between human society and nature. The raw rhythmic pattern of the paintings has been praised over the years and has been applied to different fields and areas. The fashion world, not only in India, but also many international labels has incorporated the ‘Warli’ print in their collection. This clearly states that this art has been appreciated from people across the globe.

TSK21_FB_artworkN2

When we saw the rust orange Warli digital print on georgette, we couldn’t resist the urge but to present our Fashion Goddesses i.e. you with this distinct folklore art, a tradition that can be worn with pride. To shop for the entire collection, visit http://www.mirraw.com/designers/traditsiya.

Gloss out. Matte in!

Not all of us like to follow the rules. And the fashion trends since the past few years have just been against all the set rules. Now one more trend for the rebel inside the lady in you- Matte Nail Polish. It is quite literal as it sounds, matte finish, complete opposite to its shiny, glossy counterpart. This trend has emanated from the ramps, and unlike other ramp crazes, this one is surely doable.

Screen Shot 2013-09-22 at 12.39.00 PM

So now what do you do with all those glossy nail paints that you purchased recently? Leave them to dry up? Of course not! But what you can surely do is instead of buying specific matte nail polish, turn your glossy ones into matte. How? Just follow the simplest steps:-

Step 1- Colour your nails with your favorite colour glossy nail polish.

step 1

Step 2- Take a tablespoon of cornstarch and just a few drops of clear top coat on wax paper.

step 2

Step 3- Mix and blend the cornstarch with the top coat till its extremely smooth. Do the mixing quickly.

step 3

Step 4- After it is smooth enough, instantly brush it on the already polished nails. It will be flawless and smooth, but just have that frosted look, the MATTE look, as it dries!

Step 4

You are ready to flaunt your matte finish up-to-the-minute nails!

The hanging grandeur – Tassels

Tassels have their way back in history, from Mughals adorning an array of tassels supplemented with their jewellery and even home décor to the Maharashtrian Nomads using it to woo away the evil eye. Earlier, these were to assert supremacy and royalty, and distinguish individuals on the basis of wealth and power. Tassels or ‘latkan’ are no more a status symbol. Instead they have become a mainstream decorative accessory for various specifications like home décor, footwear, men and women clothing and so on. Of course the designs and the tackles used are substantially distinctive.

mughal

The way the tassel clings and prettifies an ensemble is what we are talking about exactly. So which are the ensembles that are adored with this amazing hanging grandeur? The four ends of the dupattas, the end of the back string of a blouse, a kameez/anarkali, or the two ends of a saree pallu. They are made of beads, sequins, and fringes. But with the innovation, ‘latkan’ or a tassle can be in any shape or size.

High Res Selected Final1

Traditsiya, too, has used this splendid piece of accessory in many of the anarkalis. The two layered anarkali adorned with heavy zardosi embroidery created with Italian net saw the tassels made out of beads covered with cloth of the same colour as the anarkali. Another shaded Italian net bedecked with very opulent diamond cut work, a new form of embroidery wherein the patches that are without embroidery are cut off from between the entire patch, is embellished with the tassels on the end of the dupatta. Crafted with gold beads coupled with bottle green beads to go with the entire attire.

 The new collection of Traditsiya will also see a lot of use of tassels/latkans used and fashioned in various forms. Stay glued to witness the entire collection very soon.
