Quick tip and few ramblings

Hey guys. I have been super super super busy. I mean I haven’t watched MAD MEN for a while now! I am moving again. yeah you read it right. Its been 8 months since I have been in Hyderabad and now its time to move again. I am moving back to my hometown. I am happy to be spending time with my family but sad that I will leave Hyderabad. I am gonna miss it. I will specially miss dancing. It came into my life at a time when I was at my worst. I will try to continue dancing.

I am writing this post just just before few hours of flying away from this place. I guess I needed to flush out my feelings and had this urge to write something. Then I thought I shouldn’t make you just read my ramblings and also give you a small tip( could be known to you).

TIP FOR FRIZZ FREE HAIR:

We all have one common problem, frizzy hair. Especially when we shampoo our hair, the part of drying the hair and combing it. Its a painful and dreadful experience. So I read this tip somewhere and though of sharing it.  When you are trying to dry your hair with a towel, use a jersey T-shirt instead of the towel to dry your hair. It makes your hair softer and controls frizz. I am not saying that it would work like a conditioner or something and give you the kind of hair you see in TV ads. But it works to a good extent.
Do try this and lemme know how you felt.

I hope to have a wonderful time at home and enjoy the new phase of my life. Also please pray that I do not have to pay extra for my hugeeee luggage. Girl problems!

Buhbyeeee.

Can I call it an outfit post?

Hey there! Well I know the post title is a little silly. Ok very silly! But the lack of a photographer seems to be never ending. No one would click good individual pictures of mine even on my birthday! I din’t just make up things when I mentioned that my birthday sucked. But I anyways got a few pictures which I managed to crop for you guys. I attended a party which I call my pre bday party on the weekend before my birthday and just went out for a lunch on my birthday( I guess thats what 23 year olds do. Meh!). Anywhoo, I wore perfect outfits for day and nights. For the night party I wore an oxidised gold top with skinnies and a neon statement necklace. For the day I wore a scarlet shirt with skinnies and accessorized appropriately for the day. Hues of gold and scralet are so FALL and work great against Indian skintones. I completely loved how I styled myself, just wish had better pictures. Never mind!

NIGHT LOOK:

Top: Mango
Neck piece: Forever 21
Heels: Miss Sixty

DAY LOOK





Shirt: Spring break
Neck piece: Aldo

I know the editing is funny. Well, I can explain, but I dont want to bore you with that.

P.S. I am excited to wear ear cuffs and walk on Hyderabad streets(you have no idea how it is here!)


Wearable FALL/WINTER trends 2013

Hey lovelies, how are you doing? I am doing ok. My birthday was a disaster. And coining it ‘THE WORST BIRTHDAY EVER!’ wouldn’t be wrong. But I did pamper myself and shopped a lot. I kept in mind the FALL trends and bought some pretty clothes and make up.

We must not follow trends blindly.Well we have heard this statement  a ghazillion times but we sometimes become victims of fashion. Thigh high boots are major runway favorite this F/W’13, but let’s face it, its not practical to wear them here in India. Wearing them just because they are trendy is foolishness. Its not that cold here in India.Not even in Kashmir!(except Leh though!).
Anyways thats the reason My post title has the word ‘wearable’. I am listing a few FALL trends to revamp your wardrobe for FALL.
FALL colours:
 
The moment you hear Fall, you think oxblood is THE colour!Not this year ladies. Hues of green(pantone colour), purple, scarlet and navy and royal blues are the colours you need to OD on this Fall. Apart from Winter staples like black and grey, fill your wardrobe with these colours. They look brilliant.

Minimalism:

Now this is something I loved. No drama in clothes and simple sleek cuts,crisp shirts with well tailored trousers and beautiful trench coats is something we saw. This kind of look is great for office and formal looks. Who said office has to be boring? Minimalism with style is how I like!

Slogos:

Well that’s not something I coined, I also don’t know who coined it. But I like it!. Well slogos are t-shirts with slogans or anything written on them. So to add some quirk to those gloomy days slogos come in handy. They are available in colours and with funny things written on t-shirts. I am going to OD on this trend. Cant blame myself!

Winter Whites:

Yes, you read that right! I know whites are completely reserved for the summers, but this time the designers decided to break the rules and went for whites this winter. Well if you are a rule follower, then you may not like this. But a person like me who loves her whites, couldn’t be happier!

Plaid,tartans and checks:

The designers took inspiration from the men’s closet and decided to use checks and plaids in their collection. While androgyny has a become a huge roar these days, they took it one step ahead with a variety of checks and plaid. I know there is not a very fun way of wearing plaid, but it makes very good for a meeting or any formal occasion, where you want to look fashionable yet formal.

Slick straight hair and minimal make up:

I absolutely love the hair and make up trends for this fall. Its minimal make up, light blushed pink cheeks, light eye shadow and bold or nude lips. And my poker straight hair is like a boon because this fall slick staright wet hair is being embraced! All that I love about make up and hair put together in one season. Me likes!

straight hair and slicked back ponytail
soft make up with bold or nude lips
metallic and subtle smokey eyes

These trends are pretty wearable and buy investment pieces which are classics and can be recycled and reused. I did not mention COATS, because its very obvious and staple for the winters. If you want me to do a post on where to buy trendy clothes and how to wear them, then leave a comment or shoot me a mail.
