Summer pampers 

The heat outside of the doors of your house is effecting your skin inside the doors as well. Summers are more harsh on your skin than any other weather.

Today, I am going to share a DIY face pack and scrub with you to pamper yourself from this harsh heat.

Summers! Really! Why?? All these words surround our thoughts throughout the lazy months of summers. Our skin is a lot dirtier, sticky, sweaty and what not?

Pimples, black and white heads, greasiness, spots and the list is never ending. All of this is due to the extreme heat and dust outside our doors.

I usually don’t like to do anything! But then after encounter with such weather, we come home with visible dirt and a muggy face, we feel like taking an extra step.

I thought of doing something for it, which I couldn’t figure out for a while ( I was too lazy). Then one day I thought of having mangoes and while slicing it down, I thought of applying it on my face.

Applying mango alone is not a bad idea too. Mangoes are very good for your skin. But as I am taking extra efforts to apply it to my face , I like adding few more things to it. The same day I made almond milk  and I had crushed almonds left with me after that, which I was thinking to do something with. I thought of mixing mango and almond together.

The quantity was a spoon of mango pulp and a spoon of broken left over almonds and I mixed both of them and applied it on my face.

After keeping it for 25-30 mins, I slowing started scrubbing it for almost 5-7 mins to just let the mango pulp go inside the skin a little more absorbing all the benefits from them.

Later I washed my face with normal running water.

Mangoes have a lot of good things for your skin. It has vitamin A, C, E, K, B6, thiamine, riboflavin, iron , potassium, calcium , zinc , fibre and many more good things which helps in enhancing your skin health, they can be used to treat blackheads, they are good for acne treatments, they help in reducing blemishes and dark spots and they offer a lot more benefits.

Almonds have vitamin E which helps in maintaining its youthful firmness. It has Vitamin B which helps in maintaining healthy fatty acids in the skin , it removes dry, flacks skin and helps to create a healthy skin. Almonds have copper which helps fighting premature aging. It is packed with all good things which is good for both inside and outside of your skin and body.

The mix of mango and almond was too much for a day use, so I kept it in the fridge for few more days. It was fresh and could be used for atleast 1 week, if you keep it in the fridge the life of it becomes longer.

I just applied it and did my everyday chores and took bath immediately after 30 mins of applying it. It is an extra step for a good and healthy skin. when the mix is already prepared and you just have to apply it on your skin, it makes you feel less burdened.

After 3 days of applying it, I thought of adding something more to the mix, to give a hint of something new and different. So, I added a spoon of honey to the mix, which surely added extra qualities to it.

Honey has antifungal and antibacterial properties and it has skin saving antioxidants. It helps in reducing acne , helps in fighting aging , it boosts complexion and also opens up the pores giving the skin an extra touch of goodness.

I mixed everything properly and applied it on the face and neck for another 3 days. The mix was good, it smelled fresh and was smooth on the skin too.

The honey actually added a little difference to both my mix and my skin. It gave a little shine to my face adding some freshness and newness to my skin. My skin felt smooth and I could see visible difference, my spots were lighter and acne was gone. My skin actually felt different.

Everything from your kitchen and something you can DIY and use in your daily lives. It is surely an extra step but this extra step once a week and then for a whole week can change your skin.

Thank you for your interest and I would always welcome suggestions from your end. I hope you like this DIY. I would be coming up with more such DIY’s to create some difference in your lives and your skin too.

Thank you

Late birthday post! 

Hello guys,

I really appreciate your interest and I am always open to new ideas and suggestions from your end. I hope you like what I try to convey.

This is a very late post! I was actually thinking to post it since a long time now, but always kept forgetting. So, last night I was going through my old photographs to find a good display picture for my whatsapp and I found a bunch of pictures from my birthday.

The birthday picture were quite a push to my current mood and got me thinking to a series of thoughts from the time and all the conversations started coming up to my mind.

Birthdays are always special and exciting l, so was mine. I was very excited about my birthday dress, my lunch date with girlfriends and gifts and other things.

I was searching for my birthday lunch dress from quite a while by then. I was visiting malls and showrooms to find a perfect birthday dress. But couldn’t find it!

It was for lunch so I wanted something casual, cute and something that clicks to me at the first look ( coz clothes which clicks at ones are the ones you wear the most ). Even after browsing a lot of places, I couldn’t find the one dress that would fit my requirements.

So, tired and frustrated I was browsing online sites Jabong , myntra and StalkBuyLove in search for my perfect birthday dress.

After all the searching I found two perfect birthday dresses one for lunch and the other for the dinner date, both online. The lunch date birthday dress was from Jabong and the night date dress was from StalkBuyLove.

I was more than happy and excited for my birthday after that. All the things I ordered came before time and that made me a lot excited.

The birthday dress was from Miaminx , Jabong, it is a really cute, cold shoulder dress perfect for the birthday lunch. I wanted to wear a cute tiara with it, I got the tiara long before my birthday ( I was too excited for it) I wore my Zara sneakers with it and my goggles from missa_ more_ clothing , Instagram. 

It was a cold shoulder dress, so I wanted to tie my hair, so that the cold shoulder is visible properly. I braided my front hair from both sides and tied it back into a ponytail after which I wore my tiara.

I did minimal makeup a small wing on the side and not a full wing , just to make it look minimal and cute and a little lipstick shade orange from colourbar. The bag I carried is from flipkart, BH wholesale market.

The dress was surely what I wanted for my lunch date, it was something casual and something for dates like this. The overall look was something I planned for. It was perfect for my birthday. I got so many compliments on my dress and my look which made my day.


Thank god Jabong was there to save me for the day an StalkBuyLove for the night. Loved both my dresses and extremely loved my goggles that I got from missa more clothing.

Thank you my saviours.
Thank you

Late Sunday date!

Hello guys,

Sorry as I couldn’t upload any blog in the past few weeks. I would really appreciate your interest and suggestions always. I hope I reach you through my words and my ideas. Thanks for always supporting and engaging yourself through it. 

This blog is about my sunday date and the look that I created for the night. On a Sunday, me and my girlfriends suddenly decided to go out on a dinner date. It was already 7:30pm by the time we decided to go. So all of us were on our toes, running and preparing our clothes and everything to just jump and to start getting ready for an already late date plan. 

I decided to wear my forever 21 dress, it is a knee length dress which had repeated prints all over. The dress had brown and maroon in it , so I thought to go for a brown and gold eye makeup for the quick look. 

I didn’t wanted to go over the top with my casual body fit forever 21 dress. I wanted to keep it low and simple.

I went ahead with applying burntout from the urban decay naked 3 palette on the eye lids. After being satisfied with the depth and quantity of the colour , I applied trick on the inner corners and blended it till both the colours were well combined. Then I applied mugshot on the outer corners and blended everything till I got something like this in the end. 


I made a small winged eye at last, applied a sober amount of mascara and blush from maybelline fit me shade medium coral (202)  and at last I applied a deep red lipstick from Lakmé enrich collection to go with the makeup and the outfit. 

It took me less than 10 mins to create the whole look. It is really easy and a very quick get away look in just 10 mins. 

I am very new with makeup but the outcome really impressed me. And now I know I can work with colours on my eyes better. 

I would really appreciate your feedback. 

( I regret for the bad pictures) 
Thanks

Hot heats and cool clothes 

Hello guys, 

I would really appreciate your interest and suggestions. This makes me happy. I am open to any kind of suggestions always. I hope I reach you through my style and my ideas of it. Thanks for always supporting and engaging yourself through it. 
Today was also a boring hot day, its best to carry yourself with something very comfortable yet casual. Like , I’ve said earlier aswell hot days makes me feel lazy , behaviour lazy and always dress lazy. 

My idea of lazy is normally dressing up, not very decked up and always, always be comfortable. I don’t have to think much during summers. I buy all the comfortable clothes and keep repeating it till the end 😅🙈. It’s the best to feel best actually. 


Today was a casual college day ( it’s getting very boring due to summers ). I just saw all my clothes n decided to wear this top , which I’ve also styled in some other way aswell. I wore this top , its from Levi’s and my forever saviour leggings from Zara and this footwear from myntra ( I don’t remember the brand ). 


Lazy days makes me not wear my lens too. So specs for the day I thought would look good. I have worn my watch from fastrack and my bag from street style store. 


Summers are really hard to survive, specially when your college doesn’t allow you to dress up accordingly. It’s best to stay covered anyways coz you’ll get tanned🙈🙈. 

My makeup was like always no makeup , lipstick only for pictures😆. I am very lazy actually, I ignore even getting ready for usual days like this. But my lipsticked went well with its , it’s from maybelline. 

Becoming lazier , becoming casual 


I hope you like what I try to show. Thanks for visiting once again. Hope to see you soon. 
Thank you

Oversized thoughts 

Hello guys, 

I hope you like what I try to create. I would always appreciate your interest and suggestions. Thank you for your support. 

Fashion from the other end.

Summers? College? It’s all about lazy hot days. Dressing up is a task during summers. College on a day to day basis, people like me usually don’t like dressing up for it. I specially see for the coolest, comfiest clothes to wear. 


The loose shirts are my all time favourite clothing item and something I always end up buying. The loose shirts during this time of the year are blissful. 

I always like wearing long oversized light shirts during summers. They are saviour for me. 


College, anyways make me feel lazy, So I try to wear something as lazy. The shirt I am wearing is from Sarojini,delhi ( sarojini is my all time favourite shopping spot) and again I am wearing my black Zara legging with it and my westside footwear, which is also the most comfiest footwear for summers. The bag I am carrying is from Zara. 


The casual lazy day look was complete. The most casual and comfortable look that I completely love. On any casual day like this, I like wearing my oversized shirt with one of my legging from Zara and a footwear like this. 


The day was obviously a no makeup day, where I ended up applying a little lipstick for the pictures. A complete lazy day for me. 

The casualty is not how you carry it but what you prefer to wear rather 

Thank you

Cool in the colour BLUE

Hey guys,

I am grateful for your supports, I hope you like what I try to create. The fashion I follow, and feel comfortable in. As fashion is only about being in the clothes you are comfortable in.

I would appreciate any ideas or suggestions from your end. It’s always good to hear from you. I hope to convey my thoughts towards you as much as possible.

It’s time for another day out post. Obviously it’s hot and we don’t feel like dressing up at all, all we want is to be in our pajamas all day and enjoy every bit of it.

That day was actually a fun day , I was invited to a friend’s birthday party. After struggling to find a perfect top for the day and loosing all patience to see for more options. I found this top, light in both the colour and the material.


Summers are really hard to sustain in , and now when even Bangalore is becoming hotter day by day. It was a lunch date, with a bunch of girlfriends. A casual day out party with them. And I found this perfect top for the perfect occasion. This light blue top is from W and the deep blue leggings are from Zara( a long day and leggings are my perfect match all the time , they are the most comfortable thing ever).


The top is a cold shoulder top with lace on the upper sleeves. It is comfortable, easy for a casual date like this. Zara leggings have come as a blessing for me, they are super duper comfortable and they can always be paired with anything.


I have taken a multicolour sling bag , which is from kins delhi. This sling bag goes with maximum number of outfits. The perks of buying something which is multicolour actually. The sling bag is a pop of colour for any look you carry.

The shoes that I wore was not at all my first option, just because it’s hot and I don’t like covered feet at all. But when I couldn’t find any footwear which would look good with my outfit and I was ignoring to wear my white sneakers, I found this shoes. It is also white in colour but it has flowers on it. It looked good with what I wore actually. I got this shoes from the Tibetan market at my hometown.


The look was complete mix and match of colours and styles. The earring I wore is from a street shop at Sarojini, delhi.

The makeup again was just eye liner and the lipstick. The lip shade is lady danger from 7 heavens.

There was something about the cold shoulder top that o completely loved. It covered all the flaws of my look( if it had any) . The cool colour blue , changed the mood aswell.

 

Thank you

Cool colours are something summers need

 

Comfy outing stories 

Hello guys, 

I hope you like what I try to create. I would love and appreciate your suggestions. Always welcoming your ideas and suggestions. It would be a pleasure to be connected to you with my style. 
The concepts I post are mostly casual and perfect for daily lives. They don’t define any kind of of fashion , they only define comfortable lifestyle and statement I believe in. 

The looks I post are a large part of me; how I like to dress, how I like to pair things , which is not tough to match and something very easy and comfortable for all times. 

The post today is of the day, which was of a sudden plan made. We planned to go to Brigade Road and Garuda mall after that. For a go to look , I thought about what would look good at both the places , as we always dress according to the place we are going to. So I decided to go for this green shirt and black leggings. 


The green shirt , I am wearing is from a random street shop at Commercial Street Bangalore and my basic leggings which is from Zara, they are damn comfortable and my first preference always. When I know I have to walk a lot , I prefer wearing these leggings. It always makes me feel comfy and best. 


I wore my nude footwear from westside, it is casual , goes with anything I wear and they are elegant and pleasant always. Specially in this hot days, when you ignore wearing closed shoes. It is open , relaxing and free. 

The sling bag I carried are from forever21 , my favourite black sling bag of all time. The scarf tied on it , is from Sarojini that I carry everywhere when I am traveling just to hide myself from the direct dust and heat. 


The makeup is very minimal again, just eyeliner and nude lipstick, which is my favourite again. It is desert rose shade from chambor. It makes the look subtle and simple. Specially during summers , when you like all the nude colours and nude makeup everyday and everywhere. 

Basic be the best 

  

Thank you

Casual affair! 

Hello guys,

I hope you like what I try to create. I would love and appreciate your suggestions and ideas. It’s always good to hear from you. Thank you for following me and appreciating my efforts.

The occasion was graduation day, a day of pride and happiness. It is a special day for all of us. It is meant to be celebrated with lots of smiles and positivity.

Usually on a day like this, we mostly prefer to wear saree, but I went for a suit instead. This one I love the most! A very random pick but something I literally love. I wanted to celebrate this day with the colour yellow. Yellow has so much positivity attached to it and also it has its own charm.

A beauty hardly defined


This piece , I got from shoppers stop. A complete go to suit. Very trendy, comfortable and attractive.

The shirt has a yellow part and under it there is a full long Anarkali style black and white inner attached to it. They are different and only attached towards the sleeves.

The black n white cloth under has really changed the look of the suit. The dupatta and legging are basic pink in colour and they have made the look even more subtle.

I wanted to make this look a little glam. So I went with this afghani earring which I got from an Instagram page. I carried a golden sling bag which is from klove, delhi. The sunglasses are from missamore and the footwear I am wearing are also from klove delhi.



The whole look was complete in its own way. It was subtle and summery.

The look is all about carrying yourself for functions during summers. Specially occasions like graduation, you cannot miss them. It’s something you will remember all your life. So, you should be perfectly ready for days like this.


You obviously would love the best in saree but during summers it’s very hard to even carry a simple top. Wearing suit on my graduation day was a random decision but I am really thankful to myself for taking that decision.


The suit, the earring, the bag, the sunglasses everything looked in place. The makeup done was very minimal , basic eye liner and lipstick not much at all.


Anyways, everyone appreciated the whole idea and loved how it looked. It was difficult but perfect for a day like it.

Saree is always perfect but even suit was not looking any less

Thank you

Indian touch 

Hello guys

I really appreciate your interest and I am always open for suggestions.

By now, you must have guessed my love for Kurtis. Well I think, a girl looks best in traditional. 


The occasion was shiv ratri; so I decided to wear this kurti for the day. The kurti is a basic printed kurti from Tibet market atmy hometown. The kurti is yellow in colour with a touch of blue prints in it.


I am wearing it with the jhumki’s from cp, delhi and jutti from Lajpat, delhi. And before I could think for anything else, I decided to wear a red bindi with it, to create a much different look to it. 


The bindi made it look very grounded. I loved the look, how it turned out to be. 

Much different, much Indian 

 

I hope you like what I have tried to create. 

Thank you
