Chic to ethnic gracious WAIST BELTS

No Solah Sringar for a woman can be complete without the kamarband. Colloquially called the challa or the patka, the waistbelt is an ornate strip of jewellery that graces the waistline of an Indian woman. It is a beautiful and unique element of sensuality that sits pretty on the waist of a bride too accentuating her waist in gold, kundan, pearls, stones, chains, Swarovski and precious gems. Yes it does contribute majorly to holding the sari in place but the workmanship of the kamarband worn on a saree, half saree or a lehnga has its own charm.

The History of the Waistband  

The patka goes back to the Mughal era when it was considered as a fine piece of embellishment for the Maharanis. Over a passage of time, it began to be worn by the classical dancers of Kathak, Bharatnatyam and Odishi genre. The waistband further on became a hottie for leading Bollywood celebrities such as Shilpa Shetty, Deepika Padukone, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Jacqueline Fernandes in fashion shows and ramp walks. No wonder why this ‘jewellery of the waist’ has amazed the viewers from the regal past to the contemporary present.

Occasion-based Waist Glamour

Undoubtedly, the waistbelt looks fabulous when worn over low waist sarees in ceremonial occasions such as sangeet, reception, wedding day and the festival of Navratri. Traditsiya brings you an ornate collection of saree waistbelts, saree challas and hip chains redefining the picture perfect waistlines of femme fatales.

There is an air of elegance in this on-trend ornament. Sometimes yellow gold and diamonds are crafted to perfection and sometimes imitation jewellery delivers more as a fashion-have in Ear Cuffs.

Tips for Skin -

  1. Drinking Adequate water –  This is one of the most important point to be kept in mind as drinking enough amount of water is not only good just for your skin but for the whole body system as well. Drink at least 7-8 glasses of water for proper skin hydration.
  2.  Shield/protect Skin – Just because the climate is cloudy doesn’t mean your skin doesn’t need any protection so always make sure you apply sunscreen.
  3. Gentle exfoliation – Make your skin look more radiant and glowing by using a good scrub to remove the dead cells of your skin.
  4. Keep dry skin moisturised – If your skin appears to be dry, apply a good moisturizer. Applying rose water or almond oil or glycerin before going to bed is also very beneficial for such skin types.
  5. Keep oily skin clean – To treat oily skin one needs to remove excess of oil by cleansing it twice or thrice in a day. Avoid heavy cleansing creams, use lukewarm water to wash your face.

Tips for Hair –

  1. Keep your hair dry - Try to avoid getting wet in the rains as the rainwater has chemicals that can harm your hair. Keep your hair covered either using a scarf or hat. If your hair gets wet, do not tie it up. Instead let it dry naturally.
  2. Avoid experimenting with your hair – During this season it is best recommended to avoid experimenting with your hair too much, treatments like straightening, ironing, colouring may lead to the increased cause of hair fall in monsoon.
  3. Stay away from styling – Using hair styling products in monsoon is a strict no-no. Hair gels and serums only add up to the moisture in your hair making it oily and sticky. So try flaunting your natural gorgeous hairs.
  4. Short is trendy- Short hairstyles are always trendy so if you find difficulty managing your hairs this season go for funky short hair as they are  easy to manage.
  5. Always Protect your hair – The best way to keep your hair healthy during the monsoon is to protect it from rain. Tie up your hairs neatly to protect it.

These are just a few tips, but definitely the most important ones. Go, enjoy the rains, but keep in mind the above monsoon hair and skin advices. Happy Monsoon :)

‘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.

by-Neil-Moralee-640x480

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.

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.
