Guest Blog Series – For the Poet in You #2

When the Beauty meets the Beast…


Beauty and the Beast


As the lenses come off,

The mascara is removed,

The eye liner is cleaned,

And The eye shadow is mysteriously gone,

The Real Beauty under the fake one

Reveals itself…

Under its eyelids, we can sense the sin

Of how appearance rules the world today.

The Beast makes its place in the mirror

Telling the Beauty that she is no good,

She wouldn’t have a chance in the outside realm.

What the Beast doesn’t know is that

Without the Beauty or her thoughts,

The Beast can never exist…

Thank you S for this poem! Looking forward for more poets to contribute! Look up for the next week’s topic in Saturday’s post on Fashion!






Guest Blog Series – For the Poet in you #1

When tailored garments meet the raw Earth…



Almost as though she were a part of the woods,

And a part of the tailored culture —

She stood in grey to her viewers.


While her cherry red lipstick spoke volumes,

The floral dress floated around

The whiteness exposed the nature

And there was a miracle found.


Against the ethereal happenings, the green made its case

That a fairy tale photo cannot exist

When a forest doesn’t have a face…

And April Begins! Aphrodite Enters the Frame!

This is the month of Aphrodite, the Greek Goddess of Beauty! Well, lets say, charm and fashion too! Beauty and Fashion may go hand in hand but without charms, she wouldn’t have been herself! For this charm, we need some words. Do you have a way with words? Then, we need you!

8 lucky guest bloggers will get to show off their work on THE RINK! It will be published every Tuesday and Thursday!The topics will swirl around Fashion Trends or Beauty! You will be contacted if your work is selected! Do follow the blog (in WordPress or subscribe through e-mail) for your work to be considered!

Topic for 4th April and 6th April:

This is based on the photoshoot that happened recently for THE RINK Coverpage for the month of April! It can be based on the model H’s beauty or the dress she is wearing or her feelings or yours… But at least one third of it should be based on fashion or beauty!
