1 Dress - 5 Looks - How To Style Your Little Black Dress

Wearing the same dress can get boring but adding just a few new layers could create a completely new outfit for you. I experimented with the Little Black Dress with some wardrobe basics that I had and here are the results.

So this is the dress. It is from Chemistry.



You can add a cover up or a blazer and it would look so very chic. You can also add a leather jacket for a nice edgy look

You can also add a belt to accentuate your curves.







Wear a Crop Top over it to make your dress look like a skirt





The easiest and most quick thing is to just tie your plaid/flannel shirt around your waist and you are good to go. Honestly, this is my favourite look!

Pause

We are practical beings, everything we do have started becoming a well thought out plan. Job, studies, socialising and networking. It always seems like we are taking well calculated thoughtful steps so that we wriggle our way to our goal.

We have become so practical these days that we have even turned ‘falling in love’ into a plan. We chalk out a plan deciding when to get married, when to have kids and when to start looking out for a guy. And when things don’t work according to your ‘plan’ we call quits.

What happened to the head over heels love? Where everything just happens because your heart says so. Where did that pure unconditional love go?

Do we all need to just pause for a second and really think about how mechanical we all have become?

Wine Tasting for Dummies | Wine 101

Wine has always been associated with class and style. And why not, it is one of the drinks that instantly portrays elegance and grace but not all of us are very sure about the nitty-gritty’s of the wine tasting/drinking. Until recently even I was naive to wines but after a recent trip to a Vineyard and reading up a lot online, I have come up with a cheat sheet. Of course these tips won’t make you an expert but it would definitely help you not look like a beginner.

To begin with let’s understand how the wines are named, the wine is named after the type of grape and the fermentation that was used to make the wine. You just need to find the few that you like and memorise the name for the next time. This way, the next time you order, it would look like you know your wines.

The hold of the glass is important, always told your wine glass at the end of the stem. Wine is to be enjoyed at a certain temperature, if you don’t hold the glass at the stem then your body heat may get transferred into the wine which can disturb the wine.

When having wine, you need to remember these 5s!

Hold the glass at eye level and tilt it slightly, look at the rim of the wine and try to gauge the colour. The colour of the wine would tell you the age of the wine.

Red wines tend to get lighter with age, so they will go from a dark dense colour to a paler shade of red/brown. The white wine does the exact opposite; it goes from clear to a deeper amber/gold colour.

You then swirl the glass to add oxygen to it. This makes the wine lighter and gives more aroma.
Smell the wine and try to understand the various undertones and elements that it brings out.

Take a sip.

Swirl it in your mouth so as to taste all the flavour that the wine has to offer.

That’s all you need to know to appear like you know you a little bit about wines. Drink up! Get Drunk! Have an awesome evening!

How to Make a CV That Will Land You a Job

When you set out to bag your first internship or job the most crucial part is played by your CV/Resume. Your CV is the first thing that the employer sees and it should reflect your personality and your work.

Generally, even if you are qualified for the role, you don’t get a call from the employer and that may be because your CV / Resume is not doing justice to you.

Here are a few things that you should keep in mind when making your CV/Resume.

Keep It Short
Try and keep your resume as short and precise as possible. Don’t make a 5 page CV/Resume. It should ideally be not more than two pages.

Explain Your Work
When you mention your achievements and work experiences, mention your job role and responsibilities as well.

For e.g.:
Worked at XYZ organisation as a ABC
I was in charge of carrying out the following activities
___________________________
___________________________
I used to also in charge of _____
Basically, mention everything that you used to do at your workplace.

Include Additional Skills
Do not forget to mention your computer, language or any other relevant skills.

Check for Typos and Mistakes
Before sending the CV, check the document once. Try to avoid any typos and silly mistakes.

Make It Look Attractive
Make use of bullet points and if you are from the creative field then do not hesitate from making a creative resume.

Do Not Use Fancy Fonts
Make sure you are using professional fonts. Do not use fancy or something which can be difficult to read. I would suggest using any font from the Serif family.
