BLOCK IT!!

Hey Folks,
Finally I'm done with my exams.. pheww.. They went pretty well..

This is my first attempt to color blocking so kept till bag only. Hope you like it :)







Shirt: Biglife
Jeans: Xpose
Ring: Ginger, Lifestyle : You have seen it here too
Bag: Thriftrd
Shoes: Catwalk
Headband: Stolen







I wore this when 'A' and I went to Bercos, Noida. The food was lip smacking.I ate till my stomach started to hurt. I'm a big foodie!! :D





This is another Nail Art I did. It's very very simple-
- Apply a base coat of any color(like mine is light pink). Let it dry.

-Cut thin layer of tape  and put it criss-cross or any pattern you want (Use a translucent tape)

-Apply a top coat. Yes, the tape would also get colored.( like Majenta in my case)

-Remove it and voila. It's done.

I'm so excited for the weekend and the coming week.
Firstly I'm going out with 'A' tomorrow. It's a surprise for me ..yeyy
Secondly, I'll buy either colored/ black translucent tights for my Zara Skirt.

AND, DIWALI is coming... For those who don't know what it is-
Diwali is a "festival of lights" which is celebrated in India every year. It symbolizes the triumph of good over evil. The Hindus celebrate this festival to commemorate the homecoming of Lord Rama after 14 year-long exile and his victory over the mythological demon Ravana. This year we will celebrate it on 26th of this month.

Here is a glimpse of all the things essential to make a beautiful Diwali more special.
Diyas, Rangoli, Pooja, Crackers and wishes to loved ones :)




Hope you have a lovely weekend cos I sure will :)
See you soon :)

Keep Smiling. Have fun

My first Zara acquisition

Hi girls
I can't wait to show you my very first Zara skirt I bought yesterday from DLF Promenade, Vasant Kunj. I searched my favorite store- Forever 21 then Forever New  but couldn't find a perfect fit and color as this one. How I love it :)

Take a look







<-- I love the golden metal Zip






However, I am finding it a little hard to think of that perfect top to go with this. (Read: Perfect :D ); as I am planning to wear solid black stockings with them too!
Here's the picture-



Wearing: Remanika Top- 'A' gifted
Thrifted Shorts
Stush Bag
Miss Jo Stockings

P.S. I cropped my head because I was looking hilarious :P

As you can see, they are not netted :\ It would be all black.. So pls help help help!


And there is another thing for you :D
It was my faint attempt at Leopards.. No not in real.. but as leopard print is so much IN this season, I tried it now on my  nails.. Sorry for the poor quality picture. My camera boasts of 5mp and delivers only this much!


I used Avon Nail paints for these. I learnt it from a popular youtube girl named, Lindi. The video is at the end of my post.


I recently purchased the color of the season 'Fuschia' from Lakme, 251




She is an inspiration to a lot of young girls, including me. Hope you find her videos interesting.

My college is starting from tomorrow (hate hate), but I'll keep posting :)

My next post is about color blocking. Do check it :)

Comments and suggestions are most welcome <3

Until Next time..
Revoir :)

~ 10 Things Girls absolutely Love ~

Well don't go by the title.. There could be more to the list ;)

Hi Lovelies,
Today I'm just relaxing cos yeyy to me, I got placed! Cheers!! So just fun post today.
I have collected 10 beautiful things we girls ADORE in our life; or you can say, NEED .*evil laugh*

Who here knows about a fabulous site called Pinterest Well for start, it is a place where you can Add/Share/Observe all the goodie-goodie things in life. I'm amazed by the fact that not many people know about it (at least in my friend circle). I have also included my favorite shopping destination- Forever 21's findings.

So without further ado, let me start by the 10th thing (random order)

10. Interiors
Girls go "WowwwwwW" when they see a beautiful home and I bet every girl becomes an interior designer in her mind, collecting random glories of around the world. Well, the following pictures had the same effect on me!


Pinterest

9. Beautiful places aka Greenery and Snow and Flowers and Leaves. (Pardon me for my bad grammar :D haha)

I would love to just lie down on green grass with flowers and butterflies all around me. Reading my favorite book OR with a loved one. Just talk endlessly about Us and have nothing to do. Away from pollution, non-sense. people,.. literally in your own sweet world. Know of any place? :D

Pinterest

8. Nails
Yes! Nails! To each our own ;) We love to decorate them, they are like our canvas of mind/heart. A dash of color here or just one, metallic or neon, velvet or matte, crystals or no crystals we love them!


Random collection

7. Fooooooooood
We may like to have a perfect 0.7 ratio or we might like our flabs to be well, flabs! We may like to be size zero or we say we have a thing for curves. We Love Food!
yum-yum :D - Pinterest

6. S for Skirt!
S for short, S for skimpy, S for sweet, S for sexy.. Be it any length, any color, any material. We Love our Skirts!

Forever 21

5. || Sexy-Back||
No points for guessing this one. We have not one but tons of dresses in many shape, sizes, color, fabric. We put our heart and soul in finding that perfect one for us and Nopes.. for our next shopping spree we don't forget the old ones. We even dig up our mom's closet and wear her's if we feel short of dresses ( which is not true :P)

Zara and  Forever 21

4. Accessories, oh yeah! Glittery and Fun!
You will see every girl wearing one! Big, small, animals, flowers, simple, Loud: Anything, We Love to glam up ourselves. "If you liked it then you should have put a ring on it B=)"
No outfit is complete without it. You can look gorgeous but the wrong or right accessory can make or break the deal. 





Forever 21 and Pinterest


3. Drooling Heels <>
Now don't make me start on this one. On the shor... umm no tall of it :P They depict our personality, don't they? <3

Pinterest and Jimmy Choo


2. Make-me-up- Makeup!
Natural or All glam, Nude makeup or Boho.. We chicks rock the thing we love most about ourselves- Our Eyes.. Smizing anyone?



Pinterest


1. Last but not the least- Tresses
Our Pride, our lovely locks.. No matter what we do to them, they never ditch us. Though some of us may encounter the occasional 'Bad hair day' but they still manage to make everyone jealous of their prettiness.. Don't they? Here are some beautiful hairstyles which would surely make heads turn!


Pinterest

So, tell me? How many of you do/ had all the 10 things in mind the day you were born?
If you have more things to share then do comment :)

The above pictures are taken from Pinterest, Forever 21, Zara and a personal collection. They are not meant to offend anyone. Peace \m/



Thanks for visiting :)
Take care.. <3

* I am 21*


Hey All! I am back with my promised post- My Birthdayyyy .. :D
13th is supposed to be unlucky for majority but not me.. Cos I was born on this day ;) and I find August the most beautiful month of the year too. :)
So 'A' and I went to Cafe Oz in Greater Kailash, M block market. It is such a beautiful place and they serve the best pita salad! We also tried Watermelon-fruit punch which was amazing!!

So when I was least expecting; the waiter brought in a cake which had my picture on it. Nobody has done so much for me.. I was overjoyed with tears..

Here is the Cake- Lemme tell you, it was delicious as hell!!


The second big thing he did for me was this- I’ll not write about it; I guess ‘A picture is worth a thousand words!’


And this is what I wore on my B'day:

Eyes-> Lotus Kajal
Lips -> Nivea Fruity shine-Pomegranate
Headband and accessories- Stolen



  * Blush- Blush*


 I found a small corner amidst the cafe which paved way for a beautiful in-built garden!



Dress- AND
Heels- Thrifted but designed myself.



 Belt- Paprika, Lifestyle



Loved the wall behind Me!

Forever 21 Ring


After this we went to Cafe Cheenos, Noida.. Had a great hookah round surrounding Loud music.


I also got these gifts :)



Shorts- Remanika


Mobile case and Bracelet- Stolen

This cute Teddy is from my Younger Brother :D
I had a great day with him.. So many surprises.. :)
 Yesterday I sat for placement in one of most the renowned IT companies.. The interview went very well.. Waiting for the results with fingers crossed.
**PRAY**
I hope everyone is having a great weekend..


This is a video I found on youtube about curling your hair with a hair straightener. It's so easy, It worked for me as well!!
Tell me if you like it.. Or even better, DO IT!!
