RIPPED JEANS & BOHO SCENES

Hello!

I haven’t blogged in a while, which isn’t cool. From time to time one finds oneself juggling many things at the same time, which is all good if you are an over achiever – multi tasker – super-human-being-kinda-person. But sadly I don’t happen to be one ( wish I was though ;P). About a month or so ago I finally decided to juggle with another social media/ internet/ world wide web/ social interactive hyperspace etc etc… Youtube. All the filming, editing and post processing has really been hogging up all my time and I haven’t been able to give any lourve to my blog. So now that I have sort of got a handle on it and have worked out somewhat of a filming, editing and uploading schedule, I thought that I should get back to blogging.

Elaborating a little bit about my youtube space, my channel airs videos related to beauty and make up. And ummmm that’s because I happen to be a make-up artist along with being a super blogger (NOT 😛 ) I post a lot of fun make up tutorials, easy hair tutorials, quick make up tips & tricks kind of videos. If you are interested in that kind of content then do give a little lookie-look to my channel and I really hope that you guys like what you see there and while you are at it, hit that subscribe button. Alright now that I have also ended up selling my channel – how very discreet of me – go ahead and check this blog entry out.

Now talking about this particular blog entry, I wanted to share another fun OOTD with y’all.

I have been eyeballing distressed jeans on everybody lately and have been wanting to get my hands on a pair for a hot minute. I really like how some girls can totally rock the ill fitted boyfriend style jeans with distressed details, but given my robust body I don’t really think they would go on me. ( trust me I have tried, I look like a homeless person ;P) I feel that tapered, skinny or bootlegged jeans look the most flattering on my body shape. Even after rampaging through quite a few stores I couldn’t really find those perfect ripped jeans for myself. I thought, what the hell! I’m just gonna do it the old fashioned way, I am gonna just rip my own jeans. I mean why spend thousands buying a new pair, when I can very gladly self destroy a good old pair of jeans. It took me 2 and half hours to rip my lovely skinny and sculpt denims from M&S at four different places, and every minute spent on this tedious process of careful destruction was worth it. Once I was satisfied with how they were looking I tried them on and suddenly realised that why have I been wearing normal jeans? Have I been living under a rock? They look so darn cool. ( I totally had a cool kid moment :p )

I love bringing together elements from different trends into my outfit. So I decided to ditch the typical tank top/ t- shirt/ jersey top etc type of a upper and went ahead with a lovely printed boho style chiffon top. It made the whole outfit so relaxed and vibrant. I really liked the way it turned out.

To accessorise I threw on a multi layered silver beads necklace and my favourite grey beads long chain. I wore a statement silver mirror ring and absolutely stunning multi coloured silver earrings.

P.S- If you are a silver jewellery freak, then you ought to visit Jaipur. It’s a silver jewellery Haven.

Back to school

Hello!

I kinda sorta went back to school this week. When I pieced this outfit together and stood in front of my mirror I literally felt 15 again somehow. ( I don’t know if that’s really a good thing though :p ). I definitely wouldn’t wanna go back to school. I feel I was so dumb and naive back in the day but then who isn’t at that age, but nevertheless It was a lot fun to dress like it’s school days again. 🙂

I wore my Zara royal blue romper dress. It’s made out of a thick T-shirty – jersey fabric and It’s so comfortable and light. It’s brilliant for summer time. It reminds me of school uniform somehow. You know like how school tunics used to be like shorts from underneath. I always like to layer my outfits- it’s kinda my thing, so I decided to wear a casual Forever 21 denim shirt on top. I felt it made the whole outfit look a lot more effortless and school-ish.

How could have I not worn my Converse if I was taking myself back to school. I was one of those kids who used to wear converse to school all the time. My love for All Stars is eternal. ❤

To finish off the look, I decided to carry my cute little peach knapsack. Isn’t it absolutely adorable? Ever since I have entered the world of grown ups I have been carrying totes/ satchels/ clutches & purses and feelin’ all grown up and fancy. I completely forgot how fantastic do knapsacks look. They really have come back in vogue with a bang. I’m loving this trend right now.

So I hope you guys like my cute little back to school outfit as much as I did. Here are a few pictures of me in it :-

Grey matter

Hello!

What is it about basics? Why do they always look so bloody good? 

One can never ever go wrong with simple basics, such as; skinny blue denims, black high heels, a black ganji and a grey shrug. Throw it all together in a jiffy and voila! you have yourselves a sure shot good looking outfit. The day I wore this outfit I got ready in a real hurry. To brighten up my look I threw on some bubble gum pink lipstick, wore my hair down( pretty much how I wear them all the time :p) and stepped out of my door. The best way to describe a basic outfit in three simple words is, it always looks  CRISP, SIMPLE & CLEAN.

Here are a few pictures of my basic outfit –

Spring child

Hello,

Spring’s here! spring’s here! spring’s here! YAY YAY YAY !!! 

Spring for me somehow is the season of love. I feel like there’s is music in the air, everything seems to be happy and nice. Flowers are blooming, sun is shining, skin is glowing etc etc. One of the reasons why I love spring so much might also be because march other than being the month of spring also happens to be my birthday month. Whoop whoop!!! hehe…  So basically all in all I’m in my highest spirits. 🙂

So here are a few pictures of me welcoming spring fashion. This is my go to look during spring/summer. Easy breezy cotton kurti’s/ tops with denim skirts/shorts.

Kalamkari <3

Hello!

India is popular for its crafts and craftsmanship. Art in all its glory and form is found across the length and breadth of my country. Kalamkari/Qalamkari is one of my favourite kinds of art work found in India. I really like how the intricate work on a simple cotton dupatta can lift the look of the whole attire. I love how my sister paired her mustard kurta with this gorgeous kalamkari dupatta and accessorized the outfit with flat jutti’s and big silver earrings. The whole outfit turned out to be so simple, effortless and lovely.

’em BOOTS #ootd & cheerio 2014!

Hello!

I thought I’d do an #ootd post as my last blog entry for 2014. We delhiites have been experiencing the coldest winter in 11 years and no one is complaining because it has been so lovely and blissful. As the temperature dropped rapidly in the city of Delhi, I realised that I didn’t own a decent pair of black boots. So I began my search for the most perfect-simple-comfortable-flat-black boots. I wanted a pair which would go with everything, were super comfortable to walk in and kept my toes all toasty. P.S – my sister got all all benevolent and cute on me and offered to pay for my boots, so I had to get the best of the bests. I mean when they come for free, they have to be freaking fabulous. hehe 😀

I found the most sexy pair in Zara and they weren’t even too expensive. Zara pricing sometimes can turn out to be like a christmas present. Like secret santa secretly priced the thing you wanted the most within your budget. I love how my boots have two textures, plain in the front and all glossy/ patent from the back. The cherry on the cake is the gold chain detailing. I completely love them and I’m sure I am going to be getting a lot of wear out of them this winter. I kept the rest of the outfit pretty simple, I wore an all black ensemble with a pop of green and carried my brand new black and gold sling purse. ( I totally bought the purse coz I wanted something to go with my boots- guilty ;P

Now talking about the year that has been 2014- I cannot be more glad that it comes to an end today. This year hasn’t exactly been a cake walk for me. Let’s just say it didn’t pan out the way I thought it would. The person I was when this year began, is if not entirely then mostly different from the person that I have become as the year comes to an end. On that note, though it has been a somewhat difficult year, it has been the learning curve of my life. I feel like this year I was under construction, mentally and physically.

As i’m really into making lists these days, so I thought I will round up a quick list of all the things that 2014 taught me :-

1. FAMILY WILL LOVE YOU AND COMFORT YOU EVEN IF YOU MAKE BAD DECISIONS. ( NOT LIKE I DIDN’T KNOW THIS EARLIER, BUT THIS YEAR REITERATED THIS FACT FOR ME) 

2. IT’S IMPERATIVE FOR A HEALTHY LIFE TO STAY BUSY. 

 

3.  DELETE THE DRAMA FROM YOUR LIFE. IT’S NOT COOL.

4.  A REAL RELATIONSHIP IS SUPPOSED TO BRING POSITIVITY, LOVE, COMFORT AND HAPPINESS TO YOUR LIFE AND NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND.

 

5.  IF YOU HAVE TO DO SOMETHING, SAYING THAT YOU WANNA DO IT IS NOT GONNA MAKE IT HAPPEN. BUCK UP, MOVE YOUR ASS AND DO IT. 

 

6.  IT’S NOT A CRIME TO BE CONFUSED ABOUT SOMETHING- A LOVE INTEREST, YOUR CAREER, YOUR CHOICES ETC. IT’S OKAY, THESE THINGS TAKE TIME TO WORK. IT’S NOT MAGIC PEOPLE. STOP PATRONISING YOURSELF FOR IT. RELAX !

 

7.  FITNESS IS CRUCIAL. BEING A CERTAIN SIZE IS NOT WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT HERE. I LEARNED THAT FITNESS MEANS FEELING GOOD ABOUT YOURSELF PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY AND ALSO IT’S A LIFESTYLE ALTERATION AND NOT A 1-2 MONTH STINT.

8. IF YOU ARE NOT GOOD AT SOMETHING, CHOOSING THAT AS YOUR CAREER MIGHT BE THE SHITTIEST MOVE YOU WILL MAKE IN YOUR LIFE. DO WHAT YOU ARE GOOD AT AND WHAT YOU ENJOY DOING. SUCCESS WILL FOLLOW. 

 

9. HAVING FEWER FRIENDS IS ALWAYS BETTER THAN HAVING WRONGDOER FRIENDS. YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN. 

So seeing that I have acquired all this wisdom this year, I guess it wasn’t such a shitty year. I have come out a lot stronger, wiser, healthier and happier. So all in all cheerio 2014 and welcome 2015, you better be good to me.

WISHING ALL MY READERS A VERY VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR IN ADVANCE, I HOPE 2015 BRINGS ALL OF YOU LOTS OF HAPPINESS 😀
