What Elle India’s editors are obsessing over this November
From fashion to food
The festive season has us at ELLE India OD’ing on dessert and tracking fashion trends with fervour. Here, we let you in on the best of style, new tech, and the coffee you just can’t miss. Scroll through the gallery for all our recommendations.
Country Bean Coffee: If you are self-diagnosed with OCD (Obsessive Coffee Disorder), then do yourself a favour and try a cuppa from Country Bean coffees. The niche coffee house offers flavours like hazelnut, peppermint and caramel that promise to appease your senses. Mix the instant powder with hot/cold milk and your caffeine intake for the day is *d*o*n*e*.

H&M X Moschino: The collaboration of the season has a collection for puppers too. I cannot wait to see my puppy achieve ‘haute (couture) dog’ status in Jeremy Scott’s ostentatious gold chain-printed jacket.
Valet Studio: My latest crush is on Valet Studio’s entire line of vintage-inspired marble and tortoiseshell barrettes, earrings and bags. Please note, I am currently accepting early christmas gifts from here.
Patti Smith's Instagram account: I love her words and wisdom infinitely. She has been a writing hero to me for as long as I can remember.

The new iPad Pro: I'm currently obsessing about my 12.9 inch iPad Pro. When it comes to any product, design is of utmost importance to me. Till the time it's user-friendly and cutting-edge, the product has my heart. I'm loving the iPad Pro for three reasons:
1) The new 10.5-inch iPad Pro and the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro feature the world’s most advanced display with ProMotion technology. Customisable dock, improved multitasking and deeper integration of Apple Pencil, and the smart key board that makes easy to type long mails... I am sold.
2) Sketching and scribbling is a joy, thanks to the fabulous Apple pencil. I end up saving paper too.
3) The must-use apps I highly recommend to art or creative teams are: Procreate, Adobe Photoshop Fix and Autodesk Sketchbook. I also recommend iPad Pro to architects and interior designers.
The Parfait Co.: Its treats are everything I like in a dessert — they're sweet without being nauseatingly so, light, and full of gooey textures. The Mumbai-based eatery offers flavours like belgian chocolate, cookie and cream and Nutella sea salt.
Jodhpur - An Insight to a Gourmet Destination by Gitanjali Gurbaxani: This cookbook showcases recipes from the kitchen of Jodhpur's royal family and I can't wait to give them a go.
