Shotcouture Anniversary Giveaway! (Extended to 20th January)

It came a bit late, but it's here! Shotcouture has completed a year, and it's time for a celebration. It's been a wonderful journey, and could not think of a better way to thank you all. I am not going to reveal all the gifts at once, though. Only the two beautiful Fabindia silk scarves, to begin with. The rest are equally, if not more exciting gifts. Wait and you shall be rewarded. To win one of these goodies, you have to answer a simple question.


There are SIX fabulous gifts to be won. Post your answer in the comments section of the blog-post. My decision on the prizes will be final. The Giveaway is open only to US, Canada, Europe and Asia.

The last date for sending in your comments has been extended to 20 January.

After the final names have been selected, I will send out individual mails informing the winners about their gifts.

Alright... revealing the rest of the gifts. Fabindia silver pendants, Ritu Kumar Leather Clutch, and a Ritu Kumar Scraf; all up for grabs. I have received some lovely comments, but there is still time. Spread the word!

So Gorgeous!!!

The day we went to Bondi Beach wasn’t the best of weather for a day out on, well, a beach. The wind was very cold, and being true Mumbaikars, we aren’t used to the low temperature there. But in all fainess, the beach is beautiful, with lots of activities. A two minutes walk away was the Bondi Beach Flea market which turned out to be a great place for some bargain buys. And the market had a lot of stuff for the shopoholics. But what stole out hearts was this small, but utterly breathtaking place- So Gorgeous. It is a treasure-trove of all things beautiful, from French inspired homewares and furniture to gorgeous jewellery. The owner, Rebecca, started the shop after an earlier stint as a lawyer and a chef/caterer. And then, So Gorgeous happened!
Rebecca’s own words describe her shop the best. “I endeavour to fill So Gorgeous with only beautiful things that I love. When a customer enters my shop I treat them like they are visiting my home. From the moment you walk in, your senses are fulfilled. You can smell it (vanilla bean), you can hear it (great background music), you can see it (soft colours and glittering jewels), and you can touch it (gorgeous fabrics and body products).”

We found a lovely gift for a friend who is getting married. And that was just one of the many lovely things this shop has to offer. Among other things, we saw crystal charms, lockets, jewelry boxes, votive holders, mirrors and baby products. So, the next time you are in Sydney, please make this shop a Must Visit for yourself. And stock up on things that are just So Gorgeous!
