Coke Studio Inspires Indiverve

Coke Studio is a very popular music program in Asia and is a brand product of Coca-Cola. It is a television series featuring live music performances focusing on a fusion of the diverse musical influences in Pakistan and India, including eastern classical, folk, and contemporary popular music. The show basically provides a platform for both well-known as well as upcoming and less mainstream artists, from various genres and regions, to collaborate musically in live studio recording sessions. Coke Studio is adapted from the Brazilian version “Estudio Coca-Cola.” Thanks to YouTube, Coke Studio Pakistan and India are reaching people all around the world and this is a great thing. Many of the songs have more than a million views!

How often have you travelled to a foreign place and heard music so beautiful and unique and even though you could not understand the language, you immediately felt connected to it? You could relate to it and the melody carried you away? That’s Coke Studio. I don’t understand a word, but I love listening to it. Something about the music inspires me and I become aware that there is some fantastic music out there that I’ve been missing out on for years.  I hope you’ll take some time out of your day and listen to some of the videos we post. You’ll love it!

We Love Bangles!

Bangles are one type of jewelry that seems to always be in style. Classy and timeless, they can be dressed up or down and you can find them in super fancy, blingy styles,  in basic silver and gold, and in the increasingly popular chunky and funky styles where anything goes in terms of patterns and designs. The variety of bangles you can find these days is truly endless AND you don’t have to spend a fortune. So have a ball seeking out your own personal bangle style! Feast your eyes on these versatile beauties:

How to Wear a Bib Necklace

We’re loving the bold necklace trend seen lately on celebrities and in street fashion. Bib necklaces are a type of jewelry considered to be a statement piece so its best to keep the rest of your outfit low-key and wear the necklace as your sole accessory. You don’t want to get too crazy and have too much going on at the same time. Also keep in mind, this season, the bigger the necklace the better!

Bib necklaces can be tricky to wear so here are a couple of points to consider:

1. Keep the neckline of your top either slightly higher than where the necklace falls, for example boat or crew neck, to act as a back drop.  Or wear a top cut low enough so that the necklace does not interfere with your neckline, for example a deep V or strapless.

2. Wear your clothing in one solid colour which means no patterns or ruffles! Keep the clothing simple when the accessories are complicated and act to make a statement.

Have fun wearing the bib necklace. It can be found in so many amazingly unique styles!

Scarves Galore!

Ah, scarves! The perfect classic accessory for any season, they were more commonly worn to keep out the cold. Now, they can be worn at any time of year and in all temperatures depending on the materials used. The possibilities of wearing scarves are endless so don’t be afraid to experiment! One thing we love about scarves is the fact that you can dress up a boring old t- shirt in an instant and go from plain to chic, without breaking the budget.
