It starts with a miraculous first embrace, then the gentle hug of warmth. A stroke of strength with the growing years that toughen each year that passes by.
The gentle whisper of lullabies, to the Rock a bye Baby in Cradle, Snow White fairy tales to the Goldilocks and the Three Bears mystery. The temptations of Winnie the Pooh Bear’s honey, graduating to the encyclopaedias of Know How's of the world. The know your facts to hopping over to the course books in the classroom.
The layers of motherhood bring forth a new face to life and its stages. The comfort and warmth of storytelling in cosy bed to the push of facts of the "Know How's" of the world. The warnings and the alert thrown every step forward, preparing for a firm foot to survive a tough wave. The heart of steel, shines on to help ride this tricky wave and not be knocked over.
A Mother is the beginning, and Motherhood a Journey, that peels many layers to find a true Soul. A Soul, who leads a way to life of comfort, knowledge, challenges, love and heartbreaks, to find a "Path to Life".
Thank you, Mom, to show me a path to life and its journey. You have been truly beautiful in every way and at every peel of emotion.
To the World, you are a Mother... To your family, you are the World

Living is a process to attain fulfilment at many levels. From material comfort to the pleasures of luxury, pride of accomplishments to the ego boost with being in society. The run for more the better can be tiresome and mechanical. Until the track has a clarity of purpose, beyond just accomplishments. It’s the purpose of giving back to society, that enriches the soul with a vigour to go miles, before we sleep.
One such day, was a day with joy of giving. Hosted by Rachita Atal and Lovely Malhotra, as Lovely opened the doors of her warm house and garden, to bring in a few designers to showcase their creatives in form of clothes, jewellery and art. The proceeds from the sales go towards the charity, MustEducate and Ummeed.
MustEducate, co-founded by Rachita, is a non-profit organization committed to the cause of education for the underprivileged children. They help renovate and build libraries in the local government schools. Till date, they have created seven libraries in Whitefield, Bengaluru, India area.
Ummeed, founded by Lovely, works for the empowerment & uplift of women in the underprivileged sections of the society with special emphasis on their health, hygiene & education. They aim to provide a ray of hope by identifying opportunities and involving themselves in activities which will result in improvement of the standard of living of women and by raising funds to support organisations which are already working in these areas.
A brief intro about our hostesses. Rachita is a seasoned professional with experience in software development, management and entrepreneurship in US & India. Lovely is a tireless sociopreneur who champions for charities such as Food for Cause and Breast cancer awareness.
Thank you Rachita and Lovely for your vision and organising this Fun Charity Event. Also thanks to all who visited to support the cause. The house was a storehouse of some high energy. With a fine purpose and a wonderful support team, it sure was a day to remember.

Do you have a recollection of the “fair, slim and beautiful girl” standard requirement in matrimonial section of a newspaper? Did it ever occur to you or your family, that if the girl does not fit this standard, she has a reason to worry? To find a “tall, dark and handsome boy”, the girl needs to be “fair, slim and beautiful”?
Alas! Not anymore. Thanks to the confidence and persistence of the new age women, they finally connect to the beauty in their uniquest form. Rather, beauty finds a new dimension.
This International Women’s Day month, StyleAura interacted with many such beautiful women of substance. Corporate Diva 2017, was one such event, where women from diverse professions came together to walk the ramp. The endless list of their achievements in profession, made them walk tall in confidence and feel beautiful with every step forward they took on the ramp. To pamper their spirit in form of makeover, professional photo shoot, designer clothes and jewellery, was a bonus to the years of hard work and sweat put in to add a new dimension to beauty.
Yet another event, that captured the women of substance, was Wonders Of Woman (WOW) Season 2. The women took time off from the fight against big challenges in life, and faced the audience with pride, in designer clothes and model like posture, to tell their nerve chilling story of being unsung women heroes. Each one was a showstopper with the uniqueness of character that empowered them to feel beautiful with the scars of pain overcome with their fighting spirit.
StyleAura salutes the women evolving to style up their life journey with colours of passion, determination, positivity and strength. Now that’s what we call, “beautiful”. The new dimension of “beautiful” can’t be defined, but surely be felt by every woman uniquely and effectively.
Beauty is not in the face; Beauty is a light in heart.

A week of showcasing at Vastrabhusana 2016 in a creative spot at the beautiful Karnataka Chitrakala Parishath organised by Sampoorn, definitely got us energised with the love and beauty of Place, People and Perspective.
Our endeavour to give a new look and twist to the beautiful heritage value to variety of saris in Chanderi, Maheshwari, Banarasi, Kantha, Jamdani, Patola, Bandhej and Chikankari with our contemporary nature stone jewellery collection in combination of Polki and Kundan was a wonderful success.

Was this Mother’s Day significant to you in any special way? How did you allow the expression of love touch you on this special occasion?
StyleAura had the pleasure of sharing the joy with many moms at our recent showcasing of Mother’s Day Special event hosted by Sanctum at UB City, Bangalore. To share the fun of picking up the perfect gift for a mom added endless sparkle to this day.
Motherhood is the name and expression of GIVING. In most sensitive and subtle ways, motherhood is about giving unconditional love and endless support to a child. How so ever challenging of a role it may be, yet the reward to play role of mother is simply priceless.
We nearly spend all our life, completing this wonderful circle of life. So is it not fair that we pause just this one day and ease off the challenge to be a perfect mother.
Here are a few glimpses of the blast from the recent past. The beautiful Congolese model, Omega Mboyo Nsongo Samira, supported StyleAura Jewellery for Mother’s Day Special evening. She looked stunning as she teamed up the Royal Mughal Collection of StyleAura Jewellery with contemporary cape in Ikat designed by Preetham Jukalker from Mumbai.
Walk your path to the joy of motherhood. You are on a journey that has a long way... make it fun and memorable for yourself. Walk the path with style and statement that helps you evolve with grace no one can ever match.
