My evening routine rn

Hey!

Welcome to my blog post on essentially what I do every evening. Well… Almost every evening. Of course there are days where I get home from work and just crash. Literally. Without showering, eating or even changing. And on the other spectrum days on which I’ll get so caught up on Instagram or a show on Netflix that I completely lose track of time and end up winding up at 3:00 am.

But on the average day, this is my evening / night routine. (:

BADMINTON

I’ve recently been obsessed with playing badminton. If you know me personally, you’ll know I’m the least athletic person to ever exist. Rather the least sporty person. Like I can do track but ask me to play any sport and I WILL GET HIT WITH THE BALL ON MY FACE. 💯 Badminton is the only sport I don’t completely suck at, hahahaha… Anyway so most days I’ll go play for a good three hours. From 7:30 – 10:30pm and it feels divine. It’s so important to have a workout in your daily routine not only to lose weight but just to keep you fit – physically as well as mentally. I for one, feel extremely positive, productive and energised after getting some cardio in.

SHOWER

Post my badminton sesh, I love taking a cool water shower. It’s the most refreshing thing of life. Especially in the Mumbai heat rn. If you don’t use a loofah so far, I suggest you start. It’s just a whole other level of clean. Your skin feels softer, you no more have white heads on your back and you end up using less product on yourself because of how the loofah lathers up. I’m currently living for this Soap & Glory shower gel. Super affordable, smells delicious and feels even better! But don’t even worry about a shower gel, use a loofah with regular soap and you’ll feel just as refreshed.

I also got these cute af bath sponges. Tbh, I haven’t used them in the shower yet but their the cutest things of life and I just had to have them in my life. Fun fact: I actually named the bath range for those sponges. And they will be coming out very soon after which, I’ll share more details with you guys.

PICK THE RIGHT JAMMIES!

Recently picked up these adorable PJs. So apt for summer with the pastels and the ridiculously cute prints. I mean… Look at those llamas and rainbows! I’m shook💕. Also the shorts were 100 bucks and the long pajamas were Rs. 150 from the street. Hill road if you’re interested.

The key to feeling great is looking great. Also I just feel like I’m my most productive when I look my best. 😊

NETFLIX

Once I’m all dressed for bed, I’ll serve myself food and watch some Netflix. This is on my list as of now :

  1. Riverdale
  2. Sabrina
  3. Queer Eye
  4. Dynasty
  5. Scorpion

Oooh! I’m probably extremely late to this party but I just got done with all seasons of Castle and I’m dead. I absolutely loved that show and after what? 8 seasons, I feel like I personally know Beckett and the team.

Anyway… I’ll fall asleep watching Netflix or shortly after. If I can’t, I’ll listen to one of the sleep playlists on Spotify and dose off.

Hope you liked this post. Like it if you did and follow me to stay updated on my life on fleek. Also let me know in the comments what you get up to on the daily in the evenings.

Xoxo ❤️

The Perfect Getaway!

What are you up to these hot summer days?

I just traveled to an even hotter destination than the one I’m currently in. But it was every bit worth it. Now I know Kerala is known to be God’s own country but literally it is! Err ma gawd it’s breathtakingly beautiful. I’m just so blessed to have even gotten this opportunity, much thanks to Shanice. You probably know her from My Birthday Blog ! post. You know… my soul sister but now I feel like the trophy sister, haahahaha.

Anyway… get yourself some popcorn or chips, a coke, a juice – whatever you like. This is going to be a long one! (Also … Question of the day – do any of you call snakes ‘long ones’ ? PLEASE LET ME KNOW!)

Right from the time Shanice told me about this trip till I reached the hotel, I had absolutely no clue of what to expect. I just knew, I was going to Kerala and staying at the Taj. So I knew it would be great but I mean… This was next level. As we pulled into the property, we were greeted with chilled coconut water and a scenery that could take your breath away.

PSX_20190412_125033PSX_20190412_125251PSX_20190412_130029

We were then escorted to our rooms, actually… scratch that. We were then escorted to our gorgeous little house with a front porch and a pond! I’m just sad I didn’t get a picture of the bathroom area for you guys. It was pretty though. Right next to the shower was an outdoorsy type area covered in pebbles.

PSX_20190412_132852PSX_20190412_133202

I’m absolutely in love with this place. It’s the most peaceful, calm, serene getaway location ever. You’ll hear the sound of birds throughout your stay as they share borders with a bird sanctuary. Also no matter what time of year you visit, there’ll be something to do. From pottery to cycle tours or just a ride around the property, boating in their private pond. Or a boat ride into the backwaters, rappelling, swimming you name it!

I fell in love even with the tea time snacks. I kid you not, after eating this banana fritter I ate at least about 5 more throughout my stay in Kerala.

PSX_20190412_170752
I’m in love with this!
PSX_20190412_170845
Best tea time snacks ever. With a cup of filter coffee – Yaaaas!
PSX_20190412_171043
Some tea time trivia for you.

So tea time starts at 4:00pm and ends at 5:00pm followed by a boat ride. I was obsessed with taking pictures everywhere! In fact, before coming to Kerala, I randomly messaged Shanice saying I want a yellow wall to take pictures in front of! To which she said, oh don’t worry… You’ll find plenty in Kerala. Girl! Was she right. And my favourite was this tiny storage unit right where Chayakada was served. So you can only guess how we passed our time. Besides the chats we never seem to run out of, lol!

PSX_20190412_175915PSX_20190412_174058PSX_20190412_173357PSX_20190412_173954PSX_20190412_173717PSX_20190412_173606PSX_20190412_173119

Straight out of a story book, or what? And not only the place and the pictures. The people are so lovely. Everyone! Just such kind, genuine, helpful, chatty people. The Helmsman (if I can call him that) offered to take our pictures – he also asked us to move about to get the perfect shot! Hahaaha… it was the cutest thing. The guide with us from the hotel was telling us about the floods and how the water was up to their waist at the Taj. Everyone was relocated to their Kochi property. He was telling us to go for a walk at 6:00am to the bird sanctuary next door to which we were slightly apprehensive. Then he was like this is not Mumbai or Delhi, Kerala is very safe.

After that extremely relaxing boat trip, we went for an early dinner, while live folk music was playing. Then stayed for a couple minutes to watch the folk dancer before we called it a night.

I would totally recommend staying at the Taj Kumarakom for a special occasion or even just a relaxing getaway. Although a little more on the pricey side depending on what you want, I felt that they really got everything SO right. They were extremely accommodating and their customer service and attention to detail was spot on. They made our special stay feel so special and everybody was friendly and very helpful.

I think that’s enough for one blog post, I’ll do day 2 in another. Hope you enjoyed reading this. Do share it with your friends or family planning a trip and make sure to give it a like.

My Birthday Blog !

Hello fleekies!

If you’re interested in what I did on the anniversary of being expelled from my mother’s uterus, then keep reading (:

I’ve always been a fan of chill, relaxing birthdays. So this year, my mum booked me a room at the Taj Mahal Palace hotel. Checked in on the 19th around tea time so we would be in time for the tour of the hotel – its history, the people etc. Turned out the tour had been pre-poned and had just started when we got there.

If you’re interested in the tour, try and check in by 2:30 so you can go for the tour at 3:30. Anyway… my room was filled with these heart balloons – borderline honeymoon vibes but oh well! Had tea with the mum ( and by tea, I mean juice, nuggets and fries) before she took off.

Check me out! In my evening gown and what not 😛

Hahahaha… In case it wasn’t obvious, went for a swim in the evening. Shanice really wished we had gowns to take pictures with on the staircase. So… Here I am, posing in my gown. 😀

Then showered and went out.
Fun fact:
The shower at the Taj has the temperature on the knob. So you can adjust the heat accordingly :O :O :O I was blown away!

Also… totally in love with my birthday OOTD. I’m always the happiest in shorts. These are my Forever 21 ones that I got on sale for INR 450!

MANDATORY MINI PHOTO SESH, OF COURSE!

Pizza! Because like it says, we’re a pizza generation.
And totes proud of it.

Nipped around the corner for some drinks at Bar Stock Exchange. Thank you to all those who came ❤ Lots of love.

PSX_20190324_235344

Then got back to some Netflix but no chilling, lol. Riverdale tho ❤ ❤ ❤ !
And 3:00am room service has got to be the best thing of life. Agree?

But not before my sister from another mister, Shanice put together this #InstaWorthy setup. Girl! I F*CKING LOVE YOU!

SPONTANEOUS 3:00 AM PHOTO SHOOT, LOVE IT!

And then we passed out……….

20 / 03 / 2019 9:30 am

Birthday bath time. #Blessed
I know… the honeymoon vibes again. But as for now, this is the closest I’m going to get to anything romantic. (:

story_1553449766516

I love my photos to show that I’m super healthy. Mostly because fruit is so photogenic, lol. But besides this, I had coffee, pineapple and orange juice and a cheese and mushroom omelette.

What do you love for breakfast?

RISE BEYONCE PARFUM Review

Compliments of the season!

How was Christmas? What did you get? What were you upto? How much did you eat? Do you want a rundown of everything I got? Let me know everything in the comments section.

I just got the RISE BEYONCE Perfume from my boss for Christmas and I’m in love with it. Also the packaging is completely bare so I thought it would only be right to write a review. Of course there are tons of other reviews out there, but read mine ok! ;P

First off the packaging is on fleek! Love the gold and black box with the shimmer. Very sophisticated and Beyonce esc. The bottle is even more beautiful. Looks like something Beyonce herself would be caught spritzing.

As for the scent, when you first spray it, it’s quite harsh. Like all the notes rush to your senses all at once and you can’t figure out what it actually smells like. Lol! DW it settles down in a few seconds and it’s quite a fruity scent. I was honestly surprised, didn’t expect it to be fruity so I thought…

Something is probably wrong with my senses. I’m not cut out for reviewing perfumes.

So I Googled it and this is what I found,

The RISE BEYONCE PARFUM is a blend of apricot, Italian bergamot, iced basil Sorbet, Orchid, Freesia, Sambac Jasmine, autumn woods, cashmere, musk and vetiver notes.

Wohooo! I can be a perfume reviwer after all! A ton of people were saying the Iced Basil Sorbet and Orchid stood out most but I’m honestly glad it’s the Apricot for me.

After all, the same perfume does smell different on each person!

Click to shop
I’ve attached a shop able link to the perfume here in case you’re looking for a gift or just to spoil yourself .

Either way, have a great New Year!

Lots of love,

The Body Shop vs L’Oreal clay mask

Welcome back beauties ♥️

I’ve probably said this a million times before but this time I’m going to be regular with my posts. They may not have the best pictures or be the most aesthetically pleasing to look at. But they will be awesome!

Lately I’ve been into a lot of masks. Face masks. And I think the clay ones suit my skin type best. I have combination skin which if you don’t know what that is… It’s a combination of oily and dry skin. My T zone is really oily while the rest of my face is, well … Not. Lol!

Mean Girls reference: My pores are huge! Which means dust, dirt, everything settles on my face. So a good cleansing clay mask is just what I need on a weekly basis.

The Tea Tree Clay Mask

🌿♥️🌿

I think it’s working wonders because everytime I smother it on it gives me a tingling sensation in my pores.

I can almost feel it extracting the impurities. And if you’ve tried toothpaste on your skin at some point in your life you’ll know the feeling instantly. It’s like that.

Dries up in about 15-20 minutes but that also depends on how much you apply. Rinse it off with luke warm water I suggest and go to sleep. Maybe keep the pot in the fridge to extend it’s duration.

L’Oreal Clay Mask

😍😍😍

This one is up there with my favourites honestly only because it has charcoal in it. And I mean… You all know the craze behind that!

It does give the the tingling sensation in my skin as well and I do feel refreshed after. However, I have literally used this pot twice and when I reached for it the third time it wasn’t the same.

🤷. The consistency was off. Which means it didn’t have the same effect on my skin and I mean I was pretty upset.

Maybe it was because I didn’t refrigerate it, so it is chilling there now. But I mean this little thing ain’t cheap so for two applications. 😔😔😔

Let me know if you guys have tried any of these. Which do you like better and why. And if you have any amazing masks you’d like me to try!

XOXO ♥️

Wearable Winter Lookbook

Hey!

Thought I’d better get this done before we blink and it’s spring already! TBH this is pretty insane for me! I never thought I would actually be doing a winter lookbook! Like a winter-winter lookbook. I live in Mumbai and if you do too, you’d know what I mean (:

So if you’re thinking, this ain’t gonna be of any use to me! Wait… Most of the outfits are wearable here mostly because I took of my coat so I could snap away. #BloggerLife eh?

So without further ado, let’s get started!

🎅 Santa baby much? With the hat and all.

Might be a bit too early to start picking favorites but this is hands down my absolute fave! Replace the sweater with a tee and knock off the stockings and you’re good to strut down the streets of Mumbai 😊.

This gives me all the PLL feels ❤️!

Doesn’t matter what I’m wearing underneath because a classic red coat makes everything look c-u-t-e! And when you have a red beanie to match , it’s just the icing on the cake. Don’t you think?

Is it just me, or does this make you go, “Are we outta the woods yet….”

Jeans and a sweater. Classic 👌🏼. But TBH, the beanie is my favourite part of the outfit. Because that pom pom though.

Also the sweater, the first and possibly the last time I’m wearing it. It’s itchy af!

Look away they say. It’s more Tumblr they say.

Don’t know how I survived the day with just this on but I’m glad I did. Classy over cold!

Everything that I’m wearing in this picture is from India minus the scarf and the beanie. Which means everything that I’m wearing in this picture I wear in India – minus the scarf and the beanie. I think it’s super trendy and perfect for a shopping trip.

It’s the absolute worst when you get into a mall and have to carry your huge coat all over the place. #FirstWorldStruggles

I’m just happy I still got all ten toes with me!

Leather skirt from Forever 21, sweater from Chemistry. Apt for -28, apt for 28. The colder it is, just add stockings and boots to keep you warm. I think this outfit is perfect for a brunch or linner. What do you think? Where would you wear it to?

Let me know which was your favorite look and where would you wear it to. Share it with your friends from colder climates and comment if you would wear some of the looks here!

XOXO

M U L L E D W I N E .

Yeah! It gets you in the Christmas spirit but you know what, if it tastes good you wouldn’t mind having it all year round. Eh?

So excuse the fact that this is straight off my Insta Story but hey! The wine turned out fabulous and I think you’re gonna enjoy going through this.

  • 2 Cinnamon Sticks
  • 8 Cloves
  • 4 Star Anise ( I used 3 but it still turned out delish!)

By the way, all the ingredients shown are for two bottles of wine.

So sorry you have to look at my attempt at Orange and lemon art. Like that’s even a thing! And this is important – I only ended up using one orange because of how huge they are!

1/4 cup

Also 1/4 cup.

The best part is that all you do is combine all your ingredients and wait for it to simmer. Note – not boil cause you don’t want to get rid of that alcohol now, do you?

And TA-DA!

Hope you enjoy your mulled wine. Send me pictures if you end up making it and let me know how yours turns out! ❤️

XOXO

QUICK, COMFY AND CUTE!

Hello Sunshine,

No I wasn’t trying to sound like your grandpa! I was trying to be cool. Anyway… I should stop. I’m only going to embarrass myself further.

Outfit No.1:

I probably shouldn’t be picking favourites but OMG! THIS IS MY FAVOURITE! I love the white with the navy, with the denim and the tan leather shoes. #LIVIN Also not too sure if ponchos are in, but I’m diggin’ this one!

And I think we can all agree this is not going to take more than 1.5 minutes to throw on!

Outfit No. 2:

IMG_20170501_175248373_BURST001

Bright, multi-coloured, and so much happening dress! Because it’s all you need to throw on and you’re ready to strut out the door. Don’t forget your shoes though!

I’m a huge fan of dresses in the summer time. Their light, their breezy and even though it’s the easiest thing you could ever wear, it looks like you’ve put in quite the effort.
Also! Get yourself some tan leather / faux leather shoes – they are literally the best!

Outfit No. 3:

IMG_1570

Surprise! Surprise! Another dress. For those of you who know me, this is literally my uniform! It doesn’t need ironing and it has sleeves so if your underarms are pokey you’re covered girl! Sorry if that was a bit TMI for you. Also it’s cotton and perfect for summer.
I love paring it with bright and fun sneakers for a pop of colour!

Hahahaha… Bottom line of this blog post – STOCK UP ON DRESSES! Or shorts and loose, flowey… flowy flow-ey (clearly I don’t know the spelling) tops.

More importantly tell me what kind of outfits you’re going to slay this summer!

Xoxo ❤
