Update: Just for an additional day or two, this post will remain a sticky. Regular programming to continue below.
It has been one of those weeks. You know, when you just want to say f#*k it, grab a bottle (or three) and head for the hills. What brought on this mid-week melancholy you ask? Let us introduce you to the good folks over at this You Tube channel who brazenly copy our text for their voice-over.
Our text: “Wearing a cropped top and skirt by Nishka Lulla, Sonam attended a recent movie screening. A side braid, LV monogrammed tote and MICHAEL Michael Kors flats completed her look.
While we can picture the outfit on someone like Sameera, didn’t quite think Sonam pulled it off… This was one of those rare misses from Ms. Kapoor, not feeling the look on her at all. And that tote… You know how we feel about thaat.”
Our text: “Another Gucci Spring 2013 outfit makes its way onto the cover of a magazine. Love the pop of color the Fendi bag provides without being too in your face product placement.”
Our post: “Launching a Cannes inspired collection for L’Oréal Paris’ was brand ambassador Sonam in Mumbai. For her appearance, she opted for an Armani Privé with peacock earrings by mom Sunita Kapoor’s Signature line.
Mixing up Indian jewellery with western looks is something we’ve seen Sonam do a lot. But, in this case, I find the look disconnected. The hair and earrings feel like they belong on a sari rather than with this dress. Just me?”
And this barely scratches the surface. If you are a regular reader of this blog, their videos are sure to jump out at you. And for obvious reasons.
We are just a couple months short of our six-year mark and that’s a long time to be blogging. We’ve made some very conscious decisions along the way… To keep the tone of this blog something we are a 100% okay with, to let the bloggers (us) take a backseat to the blog and to never, ever take our readers (you) for granted. And while we are very, very grateful to our advertisers and the Press we get, this blog is what it is, coz’ of you all.
Lately though with repeated instances of our content being plagiarized by Bollywood news and entertainment shows on TV, You Tube channels, celebrity bloggers and popular blogs has given us bit of a pause.
show blog must go on, yes? And that it will. Because we love what we do. And we know we’ve always gotten your support when we needed it most.
A big thank-you to all those who write in tipping us off.
