Tribal glory

Do you love to wear bizarre accessories?

At Citizenkay, we believe Bizarre is Beautiful... So when Kay visited a store in Bandra.. she couldn’t resist but try every accessory over there until she saw something really unique… It was a necklace made up of hairpins! Hairpins could be a part of her daily hair-do’s that she uses every single day.. Kay wondered how someone could incorporate hairpin’s in a necklace.. She pulled out the necklace from the rack to see the price label. She couldn’t afford it.. but she still kept lusting for it..

Every time she visited that store, she couldn’t get her eyes of that necklace, she thought to herself, “A hairpin necklace? Even I can make it.I will definitely make it!” She observed every centimeter of the necklace to see how it was made and then rushed home with a grin.  Upon reaching home, she explored every nook and corner of her house to gather hairpins.. And then finally sat down to make something she wanted to wear since a long!

Every girl wants to stand out from a  huge crowd, and get all the attention wherever s​he goes.. Kay brings you a DIY that will definitely make heads roll!

It's quick and easy..

Gather a black jewellery rope, some hairpins, jump ring and a lobster ring and a nail paint(optional) to color the pins.

Studded Glamour

That spiky feeling! Have you loved it? Have you always lusted after it? Well Kay’ has always been a stud  chic. Whether it’s her leather jacket or those yummy booties, she likes studs as she likes her daily morning double eggs with toast.

Studs reflect a very tough demeanor. Something that Kay’ has always admired. So once she chanced upon a shop which sold these beauties. It was like being in a candy shop. She couldn’t decide what she wanted pick. But then after much staring and affectionate adoring, she chose the conical studs. Bought some fabric glue from a quaint shop next to her building and let her imagination run wild. She stuck them to her favourite ‘colour block’ bag and Voila..what she had is pure brilliance! So much so that when she carries the clutch, all eyes are on her. Oh how she likes it. But with an impish grin, she just walks!

It’s Easy. Just 3 steps, Kay’ promise!

1.       Gather your favourite bag, a handful of studs and some fabric glue.



2.     Stick them to the edges of the bag



3.    Let it dry for an hour.



Final Result: THE Beauty



Go ahead, explore your ‘stud’ side!

Skin Fairy: Palmer's Cocoa Butter


As the bright sun dips into hibernation, winter comes calling. Though there is no special winter month, here in Mumbai. Kay’ still feels the dryness that takes her over. The sudden nip in the air gives an invitation to the ‘ flaky devil’ that causes major skin irritation. Kay loves her skin, but hates it when her skin goes through turmoil. Those ugly white dry patches that becomes worse by the day...


So one night, when Kay’ was having her midnight hot chocolate, she accidentally spill it on her self. She smelled of chocolate and she loved it. She loved the smell of it, she loved the creamy goodness of it against her skin. “What if I could use chocolate on my skin?” she asked to herself. Then the thought vanished as fast as it came. She washed herself clean and went to sleep. Next morning, somebody presented her the ‘Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula’. It was a fat jar, fatter than her. She opened it and smelled the buttery goodness. It smelled like melted chocolate! She dipped her fingers in it. It was pure velvet!  She then applied it to her hands. Her skin has been glowing ever since. She is no longer afraid of those scaly white patches on her skin. The magic formula had worked.


The ‘dream fairy’ gifted it to her.


Kay’s star’s:  5  on 5.


Does she recommend it: Yes, Yes, Yes!


Caution: It’s so chocolatey, she once tried to eat it. Don’t EAT it!
