Book Review – Countless Cups of Chai by Saman Mirza

Countless Cups of Chai is a self-help guide to designing your personal space. It consists of different aspects of creativity and a combination of rules that the author has learned through living a mobile life. Due to her consistent lifestyle of having to move home and her living accommodations, Saman manages to develop the style of adjustment, by creating a pleasant space for her family and home.


The author believes that when it comes to style, it all comes down to our perceptions. Therefore, nothing is wrong or right but acceptable to the eyes of the beholder.

Every chapter begins with a quote about life, living, and design. I particularly liked the part where the book expressly acknowledges that it may not be right to judge a person by their appearance, but you can definitely tell something from the way they choose to live and arrange their personal space.

The literary standard of the book was in good standing. The topics discussed were relevant to the author’s personal experience. I admired the fact that the content was not based on the typical design rule books which can be found everywhere else. All her thoughts and ideas are by the rule of thumb and have a personal touch.

I know that as an independent author, the cost of print staggers when there are pictures entailed, so I fully understand the lack of photos as examples. However, I believe that if there were no financial strains, then pictures would have improved the book immensely.

I recommend this book to anyone that wishes to read on designing their space with a personal touch.

Confidence isn’t solely defined by what you wear; more importantly,

it shouldn’t be!

However, each coin has two sides. The other side here is: when you feel good on the outside, automatically there is a boost in self-confidence and attitude. Dressing can certainly affect how you feel but, again back to the first side of the coin, it is not the sole determinant of your confidence.

Why Fashion Week is so Important (1 min read)

When we think of Fashion Week, our minds usually conjure up images of the fashion elite sitting coolly in front rows of high-end, highly anticipated runway shows. Although this is true, Fashion week is mainly targeted at those who work in the fashion industry. Fashion week is a work event.

Imagine you own your own small business. You have two weeks in a year to display your half year’s work. You have to make it count! You would cram in as many meetings with investors, marketers, and media moguls as you possibly could as this would be your main chance at spreading the word about your products. Same goes for Fashion Week.

We tend not to consciously acknowledge the fact that the fashion media tells us what we love. The fashion media elite attend fashion weeks and pick and choose what they want us to love. These fashions eventually trickle down to all of us and remain in our minds as the newest and most lust-worthy. These fashions are only a very small percentage of what is actually shown during fashion week and if we want to see it all, it takes quite a bit of time and research.

Knowing that the items shown at fashion week will be ultimately controlling our fashion choices for the next year (or two!) is what makes Fashion Week a much-anticipated event. Just like mathematics can predict world events, being familiar with the newest fashion before everyone else can predict a plethora of marketing and social media phenomena.

Not just anyone can score a ticket to shows during Fashion Week, as tickets aren’t available to the public. In most cases, one must be invited to attend to soak up the lovely colors and fabrics floating down the runway.

So check out the latest shows and see if you agree with what the fashion media chooses for us to love!

Why is real Fur still in Fashion? (1 min read)

Hello Readers,

Fur has been a controversial topic in fashion for many years now and many designers still use fur within their collections. Peta are well known for protesting at many live fashion shows, throwing red paint over the designer’s creations. They had a massive campaign featuring several celebrities like P!nk, Eva Mendes, Khloe Kardashian, Taraji P. Henson called ‘I would rather go naked than wear fur’.

Many designers don’t use fur at all or just use faux fur within their collections. Calvin Klein was the first big designer to announce to no longer use fur within his collections after Peta crashed his offices to protest. He had a meeting with them and he was convinced never to use fur again. Many other designers have since also joined Calvin in the no fur campaign e.g. Stella McCartney, Ralph Lauren, Vivienne Westwood and Tommy Hilfiger to name just a few.

Does a designer really need to use real fur? Faux fur has been around since 1910 and has been going from strength to strength since and now looks amazing and feels great to. With faux fur looking just as good in my opinion as real fur, is there a need for real fur.

The animals that are being used within the fur trade are cruelly treated. The conditions they live in are squalor. They are poorly fed and are very rarely fed. The animals are normally still alive when they are skinned. No animal deserves to go through this treatment. No animal deserves to go through any of this, especially just for an item of clothing.

More designers need to make the change for their collections. Real fur was never needed on the runway and it deserves to be given the boot. Is the cruelty the animals suffer really worthwhile so that an item of clothing has the extra pizzazz? NO!!! I love fashion, I love keeping up the latest trends but not at the expense like this.

If you are undecided about this topic, then please just do a little bit of research on how the animals are treated and hopefully you will see how the torment they go through is not worth it just a piece of clothing

If you like what you read and want to be clued up on the latest fashion trends and news then just head on over to www.lbcfashonblog.com and see what’s going on.
