Guestpost Bon Anniversaire Ketchup!

I just saw a notification from WordPress telling me we registered this blog three years ago. THREE YEARS! Could the Unreal Bride possibly be so many years old?  WOW! This calls for a celebration and a plan. Ironically, I came to write a post about a birthday celebration but not our own! This can only mean one thing- a combined birthday party!!!! Who is going to be our birthday buddy , you ask? Well none other than our favourite bag people (I say that in the nicest way possiple)- Ketchup! You know them well from our blog- we have done some of our favourite shoots with their products, had insane giveaways and have become great friends since then! If you know the Unreal Bride, you know Ketchup!!

Ketchup celebrated their 2nd birthday last month and to celebrate -they took a trip to gorgeous Paris. Anyone who visits Paris is sure to come back oozing with inspiration. So as a way to celebrate their birthday they wrote a guest post for us on Paris annnnd if you read to the bottom of the post, you might find a pleasant surprise waiting for you!

Here’s what the Ketchup girls had to say!

idea  Paris is always a good idea – Audrey Hepburn


5 things about Paris (pronounced Fr. paˈri), that we L-O-V-E !


Très chic:

Paris is the fashion capital of the world. The french, both men and women, don’t just love fashion, they understand the true essence of fashion and they sure as hell know how to rock some seriously hot haute couture – respect!



C’est si bon:

One simply can not get enough of the breads, the cheeses, the steaks, the wines, the mussels, the brews, the desserts – yes the desserts : when we say french desserts, we mean lots of delicious calories such as macaroons, mille-feuilles, profiteroles, eclairs,tarte tatins and crème brûlées!


Talking of which… we could kill for a fresh french vanilla custard creme brûlée in a super cute cafe in Paris RIGHT NOW!

Bon appetit!

Très magnifique:

French architecture took our breath away .. The gardens, the ever-so-beautiful river Siene, the 18th century buildings, le tour d’eiffel, the champs-elysees, the museums. What’s not to love? Infact we even loved the windows, the open spaces, the boulevards and the sidewalks.


Je ne veux pas travailler:

The weather in Paris all through our birthday month was spectacular, the cool breeze and the slight drizzle along with the smell of freshly heated chestnuts made our walks in the pristine gardens along the river Siene simply surreal.


Le temps de l’amour :

The city of Paris is like a classic timeless black and white romantic movie!


Paris makes one want to fall in love, Paris makes one want to kiss…. and then keep kissing … and at Ketchup we love kissing .


Paris je t’aime!

  3. Here’s me trying my luck too!
    I love what Kismet and her team is able to pull off at Unreal Bride and of course ketchup bags are droll worthy every time! Loved the pink bag in the second picture! simply coz i love the cut work on it! i loved the pic numbered g17 with the anklet on it…its simplistically perfect for me:)

    Happy Birthday Ketchup and Happy Independence Day 🙂

    I am crazy for bags, clutches and ketchup’s clutches are so awesome that I can’t stop myself loving them 🙂

    Actually I like two bags which are featured in two blog posts….


    I simply loved the first Orange Clutch in this first pic and I do remember that I too participated last time in this giveaway but did not won…. Also, wish to say that I loved your this particular post because in this post, every bag, clutch is presented with similar colored food items that really enhances the color, design and pattern of the featured ketchup bag… Really beautiful way of presenting clutches and simply Loved the way this post was written.

    I loved this particular clutch because of its bright tangy orange color and also the intricate design that is embarked on this clutch with grey color which is really eye-catching and worth to own,

    I participated last time in this giveaway but didn’t won, hope to win this time….


    This is second purse which is simply marvelous because of its frills and golden color, which really adds to our fancies, enhancing our desire to droll more this purse ….

    I have not visited Paris but Really wish someday to visit Paris and Paris has its own charm of being a lover’s city and Paris is like a journey of love which every one wants and should really look forward to goto and I think I would love the architecture, the glamor, the aura of Paris when I would visit it someday, Paris is WOWWWWWWW and it really can;t be explained in words.

  5. Hi

    Thank you for the beautiful giveaway and am glad that I made it in time to enter 🙂

    Happy Birthday Ketchup,

    Well all ketchup bags are creative and I love creative stuff, but if you ask me to choose 1, I will choose this after being confused for hours: , The neon orange box clutch in first picture. I love neon orange and this clutch is looking just so beautiful, Nikhar has add a grace of design with its print to the dhinchak , vibrant color clutch which makes it a perfect choice for all occasions, also the size and square pattern adds glam to it. In all this is a statement maker which will bring a vibrant lively dose of fashion in my wardrobe also adding lot of grace, this is a clutch even my mom would love to flaunt with her silk sarees 🙂 so this is my fav 🙂

    And I have never been to paris but that is that 1 destination which me an my mom want to go together and live there for a month. Reason is we are in love with that place by watching it n so many films, everything about it is just so magical, beautiful, elegant, charming that it attracts us.

    Also paris is heaven for fashion lovers , so I guess with all this am sure I would like, no I mean am going to love paris, wish I visit it soon.

    Still have a day, will invite all my friends 🙂

  6. You had me at bling – and that too with pink! I absolutely love your ‘pink blink’ collection. Happened to see some really pieces on your website and at 1 style mile! I wanntttt
    But hope you have a blingy and glamorous second birthday. much love.

  7. Sigh. Here we go! Possibly my first “competition entry” but for the love of orange – I shall do this! Haha.

    Gotta say – like a few others: this gotta be my favorite bag – – for two reasons:

    1. This is that one shoot that I associate “The Unreal Bride” with. It’s one of my favorites by them and the first shoot that made me start stalking “The Unreal Bride” on a very regular basis. I am now the official designated creepy stalker!

    2. The second reason is simple: that bag is delicious!

    Sending tons of confetti and combined birthday bumps to The Unreal Bride team and Ketchup! Here’s to getting more sexy with every birthday! *insert old school finger in the air birthday dance! Happppppy Birthday everyoneee! ❤

    Love and kisses,

  8. The pink one! -

    Perfect combination of Glittery, sober and Golden ❤

  9. I love all ketchup bags on your blog
    Beautiful bags + beautiful styling + beautiful photoshoot = DROOL!
    This one’s my most favourite because i love the simplicity in the design along with the amalgamation of the contrasting elements – neon leather and jute. And because neon pink is the best colour in the world.
    My most favourite thing about pa-ri is the macaroons. I can gorge on french macaroons for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
