As told to us by a representative from coworkin.co – While working from home might initially seem like a dream come true, once reality starts to set in, most of us find it a highly distracting nightmare.
Because unless you live totally alone; sans family, roommates or friends, there will be tons of nagging looks constantly being shot your way. Plus, since there’s nobody to look at your work, and nobody to take suggestions from, the lines between work and leisure hours start getting blurry. (Slowly, Game of Thrones marathons begin taking priority over the newest project or report.) And save for a few freaks of nature, even those from uber-creative backgrounds soon face blockage. Staring at the white wall (or blue, or green, or red… whatever really) isn’t quite the productive thing to do.
So inevitably, you make a sloth paced move to your local coffee shop; and sure, at this can be real productive. But, wait a minute – did you just end up paying Rs 500 for a cup of bina-adrakwali chai, a dry sandwich, 100 MBs of finicky Wi-Fi, and a plug point? (Do add extra calories and flab to the mix.) Although there will only be rare times when someone asks you to move your butt from the café, you simply cannot ignore the staff’s judgment teeming stares.
All of this needless trouble (and lots more) which coworkin.co founder- Yatin K Thakur experienced made him realized, that there were literally thousands of people like him wanting to work and live differently. He understood that the very best ideas and the very best work comes only when you connect with someone and are able to collaborate to create something.
With an average of 8-12 hours that every individual spends slogging, it is important to make sure that they are spending it right. (Without having to worry about stuff like ‘Yaar, ye wifikyonnahichalraha?’)
Yatin wanted to create an environment that gave people the best of both worlds; an office which is your own, and at the same time, it’s not a place where you are sitting alone, or have to pay heavily for a simple office space and coffee.
At Coworkin.co, you come not only to a super-fun working space, but also to a community where likeminded people including entrepreneurs, freelancers, professionals, startups and SMEs unite, enjoy (aha, almost) unlimited perks, grow, and help others grow as well. Yatin started with this vision because he realized long ago that everyone works better when they work together. He believed it, and so he made it happen. The same can be true for your idea.
“I have nothing to wear” – if these 5 words are part of your daily morning rant, the signs are clear; your wardrobe is crying out for a revamp. What better time than a brand new year to give your closet that much needed overhaul (before you make that new year resolution of not being a shopaholic that is!!). And with India’s biggest fashion sale –Myntra’s End Of Reason Sale (EORS) – coming your way, you can now shop for season’s best fashion essentials without breaking the bank. Read on for tips from Abhinaya H, Myntra Fashion Stylist, on how to make full use of the sale to rebuild your wardrobe.
Out goes old, in comes new
Much of the ‘boring wardrobe’ feeling comes from the clothes that are so last season. So, you would need a list of not just what you need but what are in trend too. Look out for all the “in-fashion” pieces in all the categories on Myntra and list them out. Also, identify the stuff that is worn out, ill-fitting or unflattering. They don’t deserve space in your wardrobe and are better off in your give-away box.
Invest in some basic pieces such as a good pair of jeans in black and blue, black blazer, crisp white shirt, formal shoes for men, black pumps for women, printed dress, comfy flats and sneakers. These are all-season favourites that will never go out of style and will last long even after regular, multiple use which means more bang for your buck!
The season of cold weather is not over yet. And if you have survived the first half of winter wearing warm clothes you bought years back, it’s time to make the second half more fashionable. EORS brings you super trendy winter wear- from long cardigans to statement sweatshirts and trench coats to striped pullovers. Get ready to shop them all at jaw dropping prices.

Vanilla Moon, a contemporary chic footwear brand has launched its new store at Linking Road, Bandra. If the store launch is anything to go by, the brand seems to have perfectly understood the needs of Mumbai women. We inevitably find ourselves on Linking Road (the hub of all trendy shoes in the city) when hunting for ‘that perfect pair’.
Vanilla Moon shoes are created by experienced Italian designers and boast of Indian craftsmanship. Which basically means that their shoes have a trendy European influence, and are dependable owing to fine workmanship. If you are the kind of person who does not want to compromise on style just to put your feet in something comfortable, you will fall in love with the brand. From office must-haves to boho-chic, the Vanilla Moon collection has you covered.
On the day of the launch, the store had arranged to give out complimentary foot rubs (I could kiss them), refreshments, discounts on purchase, and mini-cupcakes (are these guys for real?). The best part about the launch was that while you could feel something special is up, it wasn’t overt enough to be an inconvenience to customers. Contemporary Connect, which managed this launch for Vanilla Moon, did a fabulous job.
The store has classy and elegant interiors. The staff is knowledgeable and also gives helpful suggestions. They have a bag and wallet collection on display as well. The next time you are shoe-shopping at Linking Road, do check out Vanilla Moon. You’ll be sure to find something that makes sense. (I should know, I ended up buying three pairs!)
