In India, an air of celebration hangs heavy in the air as the calendar dictates festivals galore. The Navratri festival is in full swing and Diwali is just around the corner, only to be topped off by busy December! As you gear up to dive into the festive fervor, here’s a checklist to ensure that you look like a true diva while doing so.

#1 Mark your Calendar
Be sure to have a rough estimate of how many soirees you need to attend. This way you will have enough outfits and won’t be caught off guard when it’s time to play dress up.

#2 Spa Date
Head to the salon a week in advance so that you are all prepped and groomed for the festivities. After all, an enviable glow wouldn’t hurt, right? Manicure? Check. Pedicure? Check. Check!
P.S. We are particularly crushing on glitter nails – the ultimate touch up this season.
#3 Fail Proof Indian wear
While your wardrobe may be filled with ample anarkalis, we suggest you change it up this month. We are placing our bets on the androgynous sherwani kurta and cocktail saris to sail through in style (and turn heads while doing so).

#4 Make Up Maven
There is no denying that a fabulous look can fall flat if not accompanied by the right make up. Kohl rimmed eyes, lots of mascara and bright lips are just what you need to add a dash of glamour to your traditional repertoire. And all that make up is bound to take a toll on your skin – so be sure to invest in a multi-vitamin nourishing night cream to keep your skin hydrated.
#5 Signature Scent
So you’re going to need some eau de parfum…no, scratch that, you’re going to need lots of it! Why not use this time to cultivate a signature scent? We are totally swearing Chance by Chanel, Miss Dior Cherie and Versace’s Bright Crystals.
#6 Statement Jewelry by ISHARYA
Chandelier earrings are all the rage this season, and it would do you good to stock up on some delicious ones, especially by ISHARYA. Our Blue Lapis Jaisel Weave Filigree Earring, Green Amazonite Goddess Chandelier Earring, Amethyst Moon Bali Earrings, and Mirror Chain Waterfall Earring are statements you can invest in without breaking the bank.
Big cocktail rings, such as our Coral Jaisel Intaglio Ring, Green Malachite Goddess Pyramid Ring, Black Jasper Moon Bali Filigree Statement Ring, and Prism Mirror Wheel Ring, are sure to complement your look and add a pop of color, even if you are wearing diamonds.
As you gear up for the festivities this season, be sure to do it in style!
Till next time….
