Women alone don’t reserve the right to wearing some exclusive trinkets. We’d like the men to wear some shine on their sleeves too! I’m sure it would be rather liberating for men to try their hand at exquisite jewelry pieces, and take a break from the conventional norms of clothing. Bracelets, charms, pendants, ear cuffs, and a whole deal more! There is a whole lot of bling awaiting the enthusiastic, fashion-loving man. Reinvent your routine overalls by throwing in a bracelet or two. In a while, you’ll discover that jewelry and men aren’t two separate entities at all! Read on-
1. One for the finger and one for the wrist
Take coordinated jewelry to the next level and settle for nothing less than subdued sophistication. Choose gold to match your swagger and this simple, yet priceless trend will make your everyday office suits look pretty exclusive. Single-chained bracelets studded with shimmery stones are your best bet; team these with a single band ring for a chic statement.
2. Holler for the collar!
You can latch on some sweet accessories onto your collar, and completely revolutionize your corporate shirts or party shirts. Whoever married the no-nonsense corporate shirt to a tough-looking hatch ring is a genius! We would ask you to look nowhere else, and get one on the double! Getting ready for the club entails getting your shiny formal shoes out of the closet apart from an interesting part-wear shirt. Top the ends of the collar with expensive and detailed collar accessories. Wear jewelry that speaks of refinement and endless class.
Does this one speak? I think it definitely does.
3. Double up on the watch
Watches are a powerful symbol of masculinity. Men rarely go out anywhere without sporting their signature watches. But have you realized that your watch-hand go do with some add-on jewelry. You can cut a suave figure, by trying on beaded bracelets that will be sure to lend a great finish to that sleek watch. Beads and charms are bound to appeal to your mysterious side, and will impart an air of charm to your persona.
4. The Key

Lockets and pendants are not new to the male jewelry collection. For an absolute grunge or hippie touch, you can opt for some trendy neckpieces designed with trippy keys to look effortlessly cool. These neck pieces are available in various styles; you can wear them layered and match them with your casual, deep-v shirts. The key-trinket is definitely a must-have for your casual wardrobe.
5. Dudes with brooch
Brooches are the stylish, sleek and are the most effective accessories that you could incorporate in your party-wear shirts and corporate blazers. The Gucci fall 2016 collection indicates a definite nod towards bold brooches. The stylish chained brooch lends a fine balance to the blazer-shirt look. Choose your brooches in unconventional designs to suit your style statement. You could also opt for a chic, angular brooch that can be clipped on easily to your pocket.
Let your masculinity shine through the accessories you sport!

A sensitive love story of a handsome and talented struggling painter Akash Saigal. What happens when he marries an extremely rich and beautiful artist and art investor Zenobia Taraporevala?
Review: Color Me Rich is a rags to riches story of Akash Saigal which shows how an artist, a painter, attracts fame but soon gets entangled into a murder.
After pursuing a course from J.J.School of Arts and barely making his ends meet, he meets a struggling actor, Pran and together they start making their ends meet. Suma, an aspiring Ghazal singer, who lives nearby, is madly in love with him although he is unaware about it. No sooner Akash meets Zenobia Taraporevala, an artist and a socialite and they both fall in love. What starts is a story of love, betrayal, insecurities, struggles, triumphs and murder.
Color Me Rich is a book that showcases and gives a glimpse about struggles, of turning dreams into realities but more importantly it is a book which gives a peek-a-boo into the lives of creative and rich people. In this case, it is the lives of Akash Siagal and Zenobia Taraporevala. Also, the author through this story asks some pertinent questions like does creative juices flow freely when not burdened by making ends meet? Does marriage between financially unequal can sustain?
The story got me hooked right from the word go. With strong narration, beautifully etched characters, be it the main protagonists or other characters and a climax that I had least expected, Color Me Rich is a book that I finished in one go.
The story has been written as a perfect thriller. At one point it will make you think that person X might be the murderer but then, you will also feel that it can be Y too. Thus with a well thought flow for the story, Color Me Rich is a book that I would recommend to others. A must read for some good thriller and entertainment.

Drawn into the solitude of his heart
To a fable too good to believe
Out from the wilderness of wild plants
To fluttering butterflies and cascading waterfall
The sensations of sweet and sour taste
Lay in excited whispers of temptation
A prisoner to a paradise I found, I encompass
In the chaos of glowing embers of love

What’s more? Risha has been moonlighting as a wedding photographer and her next assignment is Arjun’s sister’s
wedding: the most talked-about social event of the year!
But Arjun doesn’t trust journalists and suspects that this smart, sexy and incredibly spunky
girl is only using their mutual attraction as a ploy to invade his privacy for a newspaper scoop.
And Risha, unaware of Arjun’s personal demons, is worried that this irresistible boy’s unnerving behaviour will jeopardize herbiggest professional gig so far. What follows is a rollercoaster of snarky quips, sizzling chemistry and simmering drama amidst a
Big Fat Punjabi Wedding.

TheWedding Photographer is her first novel.
