Video Diary: I’m at Fashion Week!!

by on Oct.27, 2014, under Blog

Hello Dolls!

It's that wonderful time of the year again...Halloween, Fall clothing, and FASHION WEEK!!

I was thrilled to attend the World MasterCard Fashion Week and check out the spring/summer 2015 collections. Fashion totally fascinates me. It's amazing how what you wear can totally change your mood and emotions. Think of how you feel when you are in sweats vs. how you feel when you are wearing a little black dress! Such a different feeling right??

The highlight was checking out HD Homme's men's collection for the first time. The designer, Hussein Dhalla, is a brilliant South Asian talent and the ONLY South Asian designer at this fashion week. As for his collection, I love a well-dressed man. There is something so captivating about a man in a tailored suit (hello Big from SEX AND THE CITY!).

Here are a few photos and of course check out my video diary! Please subscribe to my official YouTube channel for more video diaries! Click here to check out previous diaries.

Enjoy sweets!
XOXO

New Vlog: Halloween Time!

by on Oct.08, 2014, under Blog

Halloween is coming up!

It's one of my FAV times of the year. I love dressing up in costumes. Always have since I was a kid. Growing up I was often a princess. A few times my mom turned me into an Indian princess (which basically was a giant red bindi on my forehead). I think one year I was a witch. Other past costumes include being a cat, nurse, doctor, angel, devil, policewoman, etc. Last year I was a referee. So now it's time to figure out what I will be for Halloween this year. Luckily I got some help from the lovely and uber talented Shweta Pandit. Since she lives in Mumbai, she doesn't get to celebrate Halloween often so I decided to take her shopping with me and I think she had more fun than me!

Check out our fun vlog and don't forget to share it!

XOXO,

This Week’s Vlog: The First Time I Tried Krispy Kreme Donuts (Yes, my first time!)

by on Oct.05, 2014, under Blog

Hello Dolls!

This week I had the chance to cross off an item off my bucket list. Now I often get to check out new events, food, movies, etc. But there is still a ton of things I don't get to try out, like KRISPY KREME DONUTS!! That's right. I have never ever had a Krispy Kreme donut. I have often heard people raving about it and even saw it mentioned on popular TV shows but I really didn't get what the fuss was about. So this week I had a free evening and decided to finally go check it out. Check out the vlog to see what happens and what I do afterwards.

Enjoy and don't forget to subscribe on my official YouTube channel to stay up to date on other vlogs!

Vlog: The Bollywood Diaries, Let’s Get Married! (Desi Edition)

by on Oct.01, 2014, under Blog

Hellooooo Dolls!

This week I was in Indian wedding heaven! Two of my good friends got married and for the first time since I was a kid, I was able to attend all the week long wedding festivities. Usually because of work or other commitments, I usually only make it to the ceremony and reception. This time around, I got to attend the Mendhi night, Sangeet, wedding ceremony, and reception. It was an absolute blast celebrating with great friends and I got to wear a sari every day. I used to feel awkward in saris but honestly, it's all about practice. By the end of the week, I felt so comfortable in a sari and I'm kind of in wedding withdrawal! Luckily for me, I'm sure I'll have many other Indian events I can wear a sari to :)

Check out the vlog from the wedding and if you like it, don't forget to subscribe here!

Till next time...

The Bollywood Diaries: The Weekend I Spent With Salman Khan!

An amazing weekend!

OMG!

I can finally reveal that I was lucky enough to interview THE BOLLYWOOD SUPERSTAR SALMAN KHAN!!!

Salman hasn't been to Canada over 8 years so it was a big deal that the superstar was back in the country to promote his first international production, DR. CABBIE. The film stars a number of great actors including Vinay Virmani, Kunal Nayyar, and it is the DEBUT of Isabelle Kaif. Yes, Katrina Kaif's little sister. I'm so glad to see her not going the Bollywood route and instead focusing on Hollywood films. It's a better fit and honestly, who wants to have to walk in the shoes of a very successful sibling? Often times we still the public put so much pressure on the newest sibling to join the film business that it's so nice to see the sisters not competing for the same films. Isabelle is great in the film and I think it was the perfect role for her to get herself launched.

So I interviewed Vinay, Kunal, and Isabelle but of course EVERYONE wanted to know what it was like interviewing Salman. I have never had more people ring me up out of the blue than I did as soon as rumors started going around that Salman was in town. Canadians sure do love him!

If you are reading this blog post, then you may know I have been using this blog for YEARS. I love connecting with you on here, sharing my experiences and behind-the-scenes. Well, many of you have told me to start video blogging and I finally did it.

So I'm happy to announce I have my official YOUTUBE channel http://www.youtube.com/user/TheGlamourG

I will be posting regular video blogs on my fun and always evolving media world! From showing you behind-the-scenes from interviews, to hosting events, to my travels...I hope you get a glimpse into what my world is like and hopefully it answers your questions!

So please do go check out my YOUTUBE channel and click on subscribe so you get notified everytime I post a new video blog! Hope you enjoy my first video blog and what better way than to show you guys my amazing weekend with SALMAN KHAN!!! Enjoy the video and make sure to subscribe!

XOXO,

Lavish Dulhan Party, Shyamal and Bhumika, Jade, and a Fall Fashion Preview by EXPRESS

by on Sep.04, 2014, under Blog

Hi Dolls!

Summer has been so busy. I know I have been bad about blogging but now that summer is coming to an end, I will definitely be blogging more often!

End of summer also means it's time for Fall Fashions!

First up, let's talk Indian fashion. Lavish Dulhan hosted a summer party to celebrate their upcoming issue and to showcase a preview of Indian designers Shyamal and Bhumika along with JADE. The designers' collections will finally be available to purchase in Canada (whoot!) which means even more designer access for us Canadians! I got an EXCLUSIVE look at the collection before the show and fell in love with some pieces that I would totally wear. Here are some photos from the event. Stay tuned as I will have an exclusive chat with the designers coming up soon!

Okay now it's time for Western Fall fashions! I got invited to check out the preview of the Fall Collection by EXPRESS. I actually found an awesome new black chain purse. I am patiently waiting for it to arrive but I needed a go-to small black purse that was small enough to wear out for party or dinner but large enough I could actually carry all my essentials. Found the perfect bag there (and the prices are amazing!).
As for clothing, what I absolutely will be rocking will be faux-fur vests (obsessed with those!), sweaters (look for ones with sequins to dress it up a bit), pearls (pair it with a black dress for a classic look) and you MUST have at least one amazing black faux leather jacket to be paired up with knee high black boots. I think it's so sexy when a girl has a bit of a rocker/biker look and trust me, it's sooooo comfortable! I actually look forward to fall because I love wearing layers and I love love love boots. Here are some snaps of my picks.

This has my name on it!
This has my name on it!
Faux fur, pearls, black jacket...love!

Let me know what designer you want me to check out or if you have any fashion/style tips you want to share on this blog!

 

Ciao Bellas,
Amin XOXOX
