    The Seven Divas of Fashion

    People are always ranting (often humorously) about the different "types" of people there are out there; for example: the types of drunks, the types of brown girls, and types of friends. Well, now it's my turn to rant, except I'm not trying to be funny here - just stating my observations.

    A Gentleman’s Guide: Manscaping

    If I didn't shave, I would look like a small gorilla. No, seriously. As a man of South Asian descent, body hair is an issue. It's called manscaping and if you haven't heard of it by now, then I'm going to assume that you have what can only be described as a small forest growing on your body. If that's the case, it's time for you to start taking care of business.

    Shika’s Style: The First Date

    Does this sound familiar? Step 1. Cute boy takes down your number. Step 2. Casual texts are exchanged about: The A.D.D. Weather (Really? -20 to + 12, back down to -5? Thanks global warming!). Calderon leaving the Raptors (Sad face). And whether or not Beyoncé really lip synced at the inauguration (Spoiler alert- she did). Step 3. He finally gathers up the courage to ask “Did you want to go out sometime?"

    A Gentleman’s Guide: The First Date

    Ah, so it has finally happened. You met her in that class you took once and bonded over the really boring lecture. She's cute, she's smart, she's funny and when you asked her out on a date she actually said ‘yes’. Congrats. I'm proud of you. I really am. But do you have any idea what you're going to wear?

    East Meets West: Holiday Edition

    Family gatherings, holiday parties, New Year’s Eve bash – oh yes, it’s that time of year again. The time of year where familiar faces re-emerge and you chat up a storm, Aunties gossip about which of their sons to set you up with, and you and your siblings rock, paper, scissors it out to decide who has to drive dear old tipsy Uncle home. However, the most important chatter and really, the only type of chatter anyone should be paying attention to this season is…what are people wearing!

    A Short Tale

    It was officially the start of summer. The sun was scorching, the entire city was hibernating in air conditioned caves and all I wanted to do was sit in front of my fan, drinking my ice cold lemonade.
