Do You!

Yes! We were all Women! 1900 & more Women! Women who were from all age groups, Women who were powerful to do something for themselves, Women who wanted to take up a challenge, Women with a core and Women who were ready to take on the world and create a history.

On 6th November 2016, at Jio Gardens, Mumbai, 6pm, #PUMA created history for the first time in India at the #PumaPlankathon.

Honestly, I take pride to say that I was a part of a movement like this. A movement where all the things we always talk about and believe in and want to do, were coming true. My words will not do justice to what I felt at that very moment, but I will still try and paint down Puma’s Plankathon & World breaking record experience.

Popxo & Puma, together, organised this breathtaking event, the type we always want “Good Vibes Only”. There were so many beautiful women out there, who were happy, thrilled and excited, who were wrapped in vibrance by Puma in their Neon Orange tank tops! I actually experienced girls getting off their normal tops and replacing them with Puma tank tops and flaunting their Sports bra. Freedom! It really was a drive in itself. The drive to #DoYou!

The event started off by two test planks. Only the ones successful in achieving that were allowed to enter this record-breaking event. Once we got our entries, and confidence in place to pull off the world record, we headed towards more and more inspiring women inside. RJ Malishka Mendosa (our all time favourite RJ from Red FM 93.5) and Shibani Dandekar (one of the most clever anchor) were already talking our way to success. Along side, we also had few of the most gifted and most inspiring fitness role models – Sakshi Malik, Jacqueline Fernandes and Kalki Koechlin, present there to be a part of the world record with us! They came, they inspired, and they broke the records with us!

The Hardest lift.

Sweat is magic.

That Butt.

Your body matters.

Happiness is Fitness.

All of these and many more thoughts were flowing in and out of me when the moment arrived. It was Showtime, where we all, “together”, held a plank for 60 seconds. Well, in this moment there were millions of emotions and energies curving around, that confidence, that positivity, that focus, that enthusiasm, that drive to do something. I was in the sea of orange.

I take so much pride in sharing with you all, that Puma Women -1623 strong women, did break the Guinness World Record, by successfully holding the plank for 60seconds in India (Mumbai) in the very first attempt. An attempt that not only shows our physical asset, but our minds power to do something so inspiring, and sending across a strong message to the rest of the world that together – We Can!

I want to thank Puma & Popxo for giving me this opportunity to be a part of this world record-breaking campaign. It was beautifully inspiring and strong to make me show the world what I am made of. If I wont, then who would do it for me! And as we know that the best project you will work on, will always be “YOU”!

So my assertion to you all is #DoYou!

A Black Pencil Skirt! One of the timeless possessions a woman can own.

Yes, if you want to instantly sculpt your waist, look slimmer, enhance those curves and look well groomed, stock up your staple with a coveted Pencil Skirt.

Over the years, we have seen many trends and then we have also seen timeless styles. But no matter what when and how, the later will always have my heart. A pencil skirt is a perfect piece every woman should own as a wardrobe essential for that touch of elegance, sophistication and glam. Pencil skirts can be worn day and night, from casual to formal, and even parties.

This age-old style or rather ‘timeless’ trend has been there forever and is worn effortlessly by women of all body types. It might have started as an office ‘must-have’, but this enduring sheath really hasn’t limited itself to 9 to 5. Don’t believe me? Watch as I put this basic apparel to test and style it out in 6 different ways- from work wear to quirky fashion events to casual day wear with my girlies and to date-nights and to late-nights. Trust me, you will be covered everyday of this week.

However, before I carve my looks, I would like to highlight a few key pointers for wearing it well and multiplying your wardrobe with a single PENCIL SKIRT.

♥ Boost your finest features: If your bottom part is a concern, sticking to a solid colour pencil skirt is your best bet, especially black. Color your top with bold patterns, texture, mixing it up to build that illusion of curves.

♥ Dare to wear: Be adventurous, be bold and style new permutations. Mixed colours, crop-tops and folded / knotted shirts. This is a great way to show a little skin with that high wasted cover. And a high wasted pencil skirt is always flattering as it creates an impression of long legs, making you sexier.

♥ Take it easy: The look and feel of your pencil skirt should be smooth and easy. Especially when standing up, as bumps will show it is too tight. In that case, up your size and make it worth the stare.

♥ Slim it down: Good fit is important. Solids are important. Length is important. Also, Colour blocking is awesome with a pencil skirt to express your attitude. However, make sure that the darker shade is applied on the areas of your body which you are looking to slim down.

♥ Wear it in the Day: Wearing a basic colour pencil skirt (solid) can help you in any setting, whether a casual day, everyday meetings and even those last minute happy hours. Make sure you tuck your blouse / top in to emphasise your waist and define your outfit.

You will be amazed to see how easy, basic and wearable this Black Pencil Skirt is in various styles.

♥ Look 1: This bow-tie and pencil skirt was perfect for my daily official meetings and is easy to carry from 9 to 5. It gives me the verve to be sleek and chic, even at work.

♥ Look 2: This look was styled to make my pastel colour pump shirt look sensual, yet crisp for that formal and informal kinda day. Yes, it suited all off them.

♥ Look 3: I wore this for my girl’s night out! Big, Bold, Beautiful and SEXY! I must say, it got me the right attention and woo. There was black and white and gold and red and statement; perfect ingredients for my night out.

♥ Look 4: I wore this day to night for a fashion event and an evening out with my girls, making it fun and flirty and quirky.

♥ Look 5: This was positioned for a casual day look. I wanted that effortless basic and chic look for my daily wear. However pumping some colour with favourite Quirk Box staple clutch, really made it appeal well.

♥ Look 6: A gold glittery glam night out is something I live for and crave for. This look helped me satiate my hunger for that perfect spicy club night. Party On!

In the end, it just doesn’t get better than this! Its effortlessly classy and elegant, its feminine, so modern yet timeless, its sexy and my favourite; so much that its intoxicating! So get the look and get classy! I mean, toxic!!!

Love thyself,
Sincerely, Su!
