Why Hyderabad Pearls are considered Famous

It’s irony that Hyderabad being 300kms away from the ocean is still melting pot for pearls. Have you ever wondered why Hyderabad pearls are so famous? What makes Hyderabad pearls so famous? The capital of Telengana obtained the sobriquet ‘City of Pearls’ because of the philanthropic benefaction of the Nizams, who had ruled this histrionic city for over two centuries i.e. from 18th century till mid 20th century. Their imperial reign, outlandish lifestyle and their penchant for craftsmanship attracted some of the world’s seasoned craftsmen, especially from the Gulf which is the breeding ground for the original pearls. During their glorious reign, they made sure these rare pearls were imported from the Middle East, which laid the foundation to the business of pearls in this city e...

The Weekend Guide: November 20-22

Listen: Aquaria by BootsHe produced an impressive amount of Beyoncé’s 2013 self-titled album. He collaborates with genre-pushing artists like Run the Jewels and FKA Twigs. Yet this is Jordy Asher‘s debut. Uneven as it is, Aquaria shows the breadth of his producing talents within the confines of driving electro-pop, occasionally even charting new yet vague musical waters. The Miraculous by Anna von HausswolffVon Hausswolff’s bittersweet vocals over a 9,000-pipe organ may be the perfect melancholy music for winter. But this Swedish chanteuse is no canary: her voice cuts and wails as it sings lyrics derived from folk stories. Picture Neko Case set to Swedish death metal. Songs like “Evocation” at once render sacred and profane. Watch: Marvel’s Jessica JonesNetflix’s newest series (ou...

The Best Sneaker Brands In The World Right Now

There was a time not so very long ago when attending a special event in a pair of sneakers was a surefire way to flag yourself to your shiny-shoed peers as a sartorial pariah. However, attitudes have shifted in unforeseen ways and what was once the scruffy outlier is now the footwear gold standard. The transition from running track to runway has been a slow and gradual one, but in recent years it has reached a crescendo. A crescendo that looks set to blare on indefinitely.

11 Chemical Exfoliators That Hold The Secret To Good Skin

It’s not hard to remember a time when acids were confined to chemistry class or the weapon of choice for Bond villains. Nasty, dangerous liquids that you wouldn’t want anywhere near you, let alone on your face. Fast forward a few years, and chemical exfoliants containing just that have gone mainstream, stepping out of medical clinics and into the formulas of every major skincare product. The reality is acids are not frightening at all. Harnessed in controlled quantities, they can dissolve dead skin cells, as well as oil, dirt and bacteria, to deliver a level of clean you simply couldn’t get from a face wash or physical exfoliator. Big pores? Glycolic acid. Dull skin? Mandelic acid. Dry skin? Lactic acid. Oily skin? Salicylic acid. There’s an acid for every skin condition, ...

Every Moustache Style Known To Man, Ranked In Order Of Acceptability

An unlikely bit-player in one of summer’s cinematic dramas has been the humble moustache. Or, to be more precise, the face-furniture attached to actor Henry Cavill. This became an issue because extensive reshoots for Justice League overlapped with the filming of Mission: Impossible – Fallout, for which Cavill had been required to grow a moustache (which he was then contractually prohibited from shaving). The realities of stunt-work meant that Cavill couldn’t wear a falsie for M:I, so Warner Bros took the hit and removed the offending ‘tache from his reshoot scenes using CGI (the results of this have not entirely impressed fans). But with such a high profile role celebrating the elaborate nose-warmer, are we due to see a renaissance in top-lip grooming this season? With the hip...
