5 things you’ll always find in Priyanka Chopra’ closet

Published

on

Priyanka Chopra is a true multi-hyphenate: singer, actor, producer and a successful entrepreneur. When it comes to her sartorial choices, the Quantico star marches to no one’s but her own beat. Swipe through her looks over the years, and you’ll find a science emerging through her well-curated ensembles. The actor can pull off an entire spectrum of looks with ease—on one hand are are playful co-ord sets, and on the other, the bold pantsuits. If you’re looking for an easy mantra for your closet—without looking like you’re wearing the same outfit all the time—here are the wardrobe staples that the 37-year-old star swears by.

1. Priyanka Chopra’s sari collection

Priyanka Chopra is a self-confessed sari aficionado. Over the years, we’ve seen her in a plethora of stunning picks by leading designers including Sabyasachi, Tarun Tahiliani and Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla. Some of our favourites being: the sheer pink Sabyasachi sari she wore for for Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas’s wedding celebrations at Château de Torreau in Sarrians, France and the dove grey Tarun Tahiliani sari she picked for Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta’s wedding celebrations.

2. Power suits 

The easiest way to make a statement without putting in a lot of effort? Invest in a statement pantsuit, or five. The Sky Is Pink star likes hers to push the envelope, from embellished ones to patent leather. The best part? They can work for different occasions, and not just in the boardroom. From the blue pantsuit worn while jet-setting or the white Victoria Beckham pantsuit that she wore at the Beautycon Festival in Los Angeles, Chopra has repeatedly showcased the versatility of the timeless staple, proving that it’s always a fail-proof investment.

3. Date night-ready dress 

If her night night outfits are anything to go by, Chopra does appreciate the transformative powers of a slinky dress. With an eyeball-grabbing dress doing all the hard work, she keeps the rest of her look simple. For instance, she styled a white blazer dress with nothing but a pair of PVC mules and a nude bag. On another occasion, the star switched it up in a red wrap dress, worn with a pair of beige boots and a matching top handle bag.

4. Co-ord sets for the win

Coordinated sets are a winner in Priyanka Chopra’s wardrobe and the star doesn’t fail to capitalise on the value of a well-fitted number as often as she can. A breezy crop top and skirt set on a vacation? Yes please. Floral co-ord sets? She’ll have three of those, thank you very much. Her preferred way of styling them: keep it minimal in the accessory department with a muted bag and matching footwear, let your outfit do the talking.

5. Skirts seen on Priyanka Chopra

When it comes to skirts, Priyanka Chopra has her picks. And rightly so. Think sultry mini skirts, maxis and midi versions featuring versatile prints. Worn with a camisole and blazer, it promises the spotlight in a boardroom meeting and can have one cool-girl ensemble ready by simply throwing on a crop top and a long jacket over it.

CBD Oil Extra Boost

Can CBD Oil Give you an Extra Boost?

We all need a bit of a pick-me-up every so often. We reach for the strong coffee or, heaven forbid, one of a large variety of chemical heavy energy drinks. After a few sips, the energy boost kicks in: heart rates begin to beat a faster rhythm, and focus and motivation sharpen noticeably. It gets us through the day and keeps us productive. However, this is quite an untenable way to boost your energy. Most energy drinks rely on stimulants like caffeine or taurine. If nothing else, our bodies adapt to these over time, so we then need to take mega-doses just to remain at equilibrium, and adding to our energy levels takes even more on top of this. In addition, it’s unhealthy to put your heart through such a large amount of stimulant use. Dehydration occurs as a result of the diuretic nature of many stimulants, and we ultimately burn ourselves out.

So, what should you use instead of energy drinks? Well, luckily there are safer, more effective ways to boost your energy. These include cannabidiol (CBD oil). CBD oil is growing in popularity and good quality sources can be found both on the high street and online. The most popular products being CBD oils, capsules, cream and even CBD gummies such as the UK’s recently launched ZenBears. But do they really work?

CBD oil: what it does, and how it does it  

Past data and current research are solidly building a case for CBD oil and its therapeutic benefits, including its ability to deliver good quality, long-lasting energy.
CBD oil is the non-psychoactive component of the cannabis plant. This means that the health benefits of taking it will not be accompanied by any nasty side effects such as being ‘stoned’, suffering psychosis and paranoia, changes in mood and perception etc.
To emphasise, CBD oil contains no tetrahydrocannabinol (THC- the psychoactive element of cannabis), so it does not have any psychoactive properties. Many people are beginning to take CBD oil seriously. Even top athletes are beginning to incorporate it into the supplement regimes, alongside stalwarts like creatine and omega 3. Part of the reason for this is the guilt-free energy kick CBD oil delivers. Energy drinks and coffee inject caffeine into your system, among other stimulants. This alters nerves and receptors, giving you something of a false feeling of energy e.g. the ‘buzz’ we’ve all experienced. CBD oil, on the other hand, supports the cells that make you feel fatigued, via the endocannabinoid system (ECS).
The ECS allows CBD oil to elicit a range of processes. CBD oil interacts with endocannabinoid receptors by stimulating and supporting. Cannabidiol has such a positive range of effects that it can be considered a wake-promoting agent. Through this system, your body will be able to better regulate the affected bodily functions, including: appetite, sleep, mood and anxiety, metabolism and energy balance, production of hormones, immune and pain system response, stress, learning and memory.

In particular, CBD oil’s ability to improve the metabolism and energy balance, alongside its benefits to healthy sleep, reduction of stress and immune function, allow users to experience long-lasting energy without the spikes and falls so commonly associated with stimulants. Maintaining a healthy ECS system will keep all of these functions working in your favour, leaving you feeling healthier, less fatigued and far more mentally alert.
Microinjections of CBD into the hypothalamus have been shown to activate neurons and elicit heightened levels of dopamine, a hormone intimately related to happiness, energy and alertness. Indeed, regular usage of CBD oil has been linked to improved dopamine levels.
The antioxidant properties of CBD oil make up an additional benefit. Organic molecules (our constituent parts, essentially) become damaged and break down over time. They lose electrons and become free radicals, which have the ability to cause great harm (a heightening risk of cancer being chief among them). Antioxidants diminish the presence of free radicals, and are themselves a contributing factor to improved energy levels.

How to use CBD oil for maximised energy 

Of course, we will all react to CBD oil differently. For some of us, it may have no effect whatsoever, whilst others will find their lives being completely changed by it. Because of this, it’s a good idea to start out with lower doses, building over time. As you do this, take notes using a diary, keeping track of the following:
 

1. The type of CBD supplement you take. 

2. The amount of CBD you use in a day (in milligrams). 

3. When you take your supplements. 

4. The changes in mood, outlook and energy levels when taking CBD oil. 

5. Any sensations you experience when taking the supplement. 

This way, you’ll be able to see reasonably objectively what CBD oil is doing for you, the best doses, and how you are perceiving your own energy levels.
Generally, however, just relax and look forward to the benefits. CBD oil consumption should enable you to think more clearly, with greater focus and less lethargy, than ever before. You should find your energy levels heightened and stabilised, your mood improved, and your sleep patterns adjusted for you to make the most of your rest. You will have more energy, without having to rely on any stimulants.

As the situation in parts of the United States is growing worse with raging protests over the racism against George Floyd’s death, stores have been looted and vandalised by protesters.

The raging protests are only growing every day following George Floyd’s death. The death of the African-American person who was in police custody has caused unrest in parts of the United States. In cities like New York, Chicago, Minneapolis etc.there have been massive protests and outbreaks of violence. Curfews have been imposed across multiple states to try and curb the violence. The National Guard has also been called but it seems like the situation is just getting worse.

Protesters have taken to the streets and multiple properties including restaurants, public properties and luxury retail stores have been damaged in the process. Luxury stores like Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Fendi. Alexander McQueen, Hermes, Chanel, etc. have been looted and vandalised. Statements like “Eat the rich”, “F*** the police”, “F*** Trump”, “Living in hell” and “The Revolution is coming”, were spray painted across multiple luxury retail stores in photos that popular Instagram page Diet Prada uploaded.

Protesters with their faces covered to keep their identities hidden, have also been looting the stores and practically running away with products, leaving all of them practically empty! 

While questions have been raised about how looting luxury retail stores help in aiding protests, others say that there is no one way to protest. The idea is to get attention to the issue and make a statement.

Courtside style

There’s something space age about Kiko Kostadinov’s latest trainer collaboration with Asics. The womenswear style, designed by Laura and Deanna Fanning brings together the Gessirit sneaker silhouette, with a 2003 tennis model, the Excourt, which was noted for its quilted upper and lack of logo. The result is an eye-catching multi coloured style, with spacey Gel pod detailing which alludes to Asics history of material innovation. We’ll be hitting the tennis court in this cream pair, accented with pops of yellow, metallic blue and red. Game, set, style match.
