NEW HAIR + 5 SECOND HAIRSTYLES

Fleekies! What’s up?

Hope you’re having a good hair day just like me. Because that’s what inspired me to write this post. Approximately one month after actually getting my hair done. Ugh! I’m such a waste.

Nevertheless, hope you like it.

First, let’s talk cut, colour, destination, stylist.

I don’t know about you but I think this is the work of a genius. And I’m so so so lucky that this genius is also my friend. And no bias (kinda) but he is also one of the nicest human beings I know. Genuinely.

You know… The kinda hairstylist that inspires quotes like, “Friends come and go but a good hairstylist is forever.” or “Behind every beautiful woman is her hairdresser.” or “Hairgicians. People who create magic for clients without a wand.” … This can literally go on forever.

He is Loic Chapoix . Art Director at Dessange Bandra . So if you’re thinking of getting a few inches chopped off or going from a black head to a brunette, you know the guy!

story_1553765710904

In case you want to know about my hair, he didn’t cut much of the length. Just gave it some layers and definition and did a balayage. Mixed a shade of brown with a shade of burgundy. So there’s a slight red-ish undertone. He called it Cherry Cola. #InLove <3.

Now, on to the hairstyles…

The messy-chic knot

I feel bad for even calling this a hairstyle because it’s so simple.

  1. Pick and twist two sections from either side of your head all the way to the back
  2. Tie both sections into a double knot as you would with your shoe lace
  3. Secure it with a bobby pin if need be

And that is literally it. Still looks so put together for some reason. I’m sure the perfectly curled hair helps but try it on second day curled hair. Could work wonders. Or if you have naturally gorgeous locks. (:

Perfectly imperfect

Just the right amount of “I put in the effort” without seeming like you tried too hard. Because let’s be honest, this hairstyle is easy af!

  1. Loosely pick bits from the around your forehead
  2. Attempt to make a half up messy bun
  3. Bobby pin it up leaving a generous number of stands out

And voila!

Let me know what you think. Do you love the colour, which hairstyle did you prefer and do you have any 5 second hairstyles of your own that you’d like to share! Leave it all in the comments below ❤ .

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.

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. (:

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?

SPRITZ ON FLEEK!

Hey!

Told you I’d be back soon. How’s it going?
I recently realized I have a whole lot of super cool perfumes. And what’s the point of having them if I don’t share em with you, right? So here’s that blog post!

For when I’m feeling like a celebrity!

I’m sure you’ve seen, read and heard this a gazillion times, ‘ You just need to BE YONCE!’ and her perfume is basically the best way to start. It’s one of those scents that everyone notices the minute you enter a room. Now it doesn’t last very long but it’s the perfect size to pop in your handbag and take with you where ever you go.

There’s a whole review I’ve done on this, check it out here: RISE BEYONCE PARFUM Review 

This is what the product description says, ” A charming and sparkling surprise of vibrant fruits, kissed by a bouquet of soft petals and a touch of sweet indulgence. The flawless beauty of freesia, apple blossom and raspberry spark a swirl of vibrancy and feminine allure.

Honestly sounds a lot sweeter than it actually is. I’m not the biggest fan of very sweet scents and I like this one so, yeah. Also the bottle is the prettiest thing ever! Love the charms around it. I might do an upcycling my Taylor Swift perfume. Hahaha…. let me know if you’d like to see that.

This is also one of those scents that make you feel better than everybody else, you know? Those scents that make other people think that you have your ish together. Without giving out mature vibes. Because it is a young smell. If that was of any help at all, yikes!

For when I don’t want to carry the bottle with me!

In case you were wondering why, I hate the bottle but love the scent. This is its description, ” Guess girl is a seductive, floral-fruity fragrance signed by perfumer laurent le guernec of international flavours and fragrances. Top notes are dominated by fruity notes of nectar made of raspberry, melon and bergamot. The heart introduces floral notes of Brazilian paradise orchid combined with provencal acacia and lilies, while the soft and creamy base is composed of Australian sandalwood and Madagascar vanilla.

It’s a great summer night scent – really fresh and not girly but feminine if you get what I mean. That flower cap tho – hideous! Lol.

If you want to check it out, here’s a link: Guess Girl on Amazon

When I’m feeling boujee af!

psx_20190128_212929psx_20190128_214719psx_20190128_214810

If you’re from India, then this scent won’t be as unique and exotic as they meant for it to be. But if you’re a fan of jasmine then this is the one! I love the packaging too but who could not? I mean it’s Gucci after all. And no one does luxury like Gucci. Except ofcourse Versace and Dior but you get the point!
On that note… see you soon for another blog post on ‘How to look expensive when you’re broke AF!” or something like that. Also follow me on Instagram, I may or may not be giving away the Gucci Bloom set to one lucky follower once I reach 1k.

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 ♥️

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!

VIETNAM: Cruise Control!

Hello & Welcome back to my blog or WELCOME ❤ if you’re new.

It has always been a dream of mine to go on a cruise after watching the Titanic. But well… we all know how the Titanic ends so I’ve also had the fear of it sinking. I know – ridiculous, right? Oh well!

The kind cruise I pictured myself on was massive with five ball rooms, seven swimming pools, a few casinos, all the possible classes, the fanciest restaurants and bars, parties to attend which make you feel like royalty and groups of posh families with empty hearts and old men and women who have endless stories to tell but no one to tell them to. In my fantasy I would be this naive young girl who would meet a guy and well, you know… Those typical teenage love stories. I don’t think you want the details.

Anyway… This is my reality. The actual cruise I went on and what actually happened!

32dcb0a0-9d29-4aa6-823a-2524587c0dd4ad0c5256-157f-4f01-b9cf-8620f568eae2

VIETNAM – HALONG BAY- BHAYA CRUISE.

It was about a four hour drive from Hanoi City to Halong Bay. The drive was quite torturous but I would say worth it for sure.

We had a small boat which could accommodate a total of 3-5 families. Genuinely happy families who were so excited just to spend time with each other. Super cute!!! There was a dining room where they served us the best food and an upper deck to lounge at and sip on some cocktails. The rooms were lovely and the bathroom was amazing, complete with hot water and everything. It was literally a hotel on the sea! Must admit I was quite anxious when I first entered my room – the tiny space and the motion of the ocean gave me the chills. But it grew on me and I loved it. After all we didn’t spend any time at all in our rooms besides when we went to sleep at night.

Our day was packed with fun activities and places to go see (as if the view wasn’t enough!). They took us to an Oyster farm where they explained the process of how an Oyster transforms into a pearl. Interesting stuff. We went on a row boat ride through different caves some of which we literally needed to bend down or we would hit our head! Then we had a cooking class – we were taught how to make spring rolls and did squid fishing later that night which was pretty cool. I ended up catching a jellyfish instead! Typical me.

The next morning we woke up bright and early. TREKKING! They took us to this massive cave which is one of the Natural Wonders of the World! Absolutely insane! Funny Story: They told us they would be serving us a ‘light’ breakfast at 7:00am and then a ‘heavy’ brunch when we got back from our trek. Their light breakfast ended up having the works! From a variety of breads to fruits, yogurt, cereal, cold cuts and eggs however you like them. I think there might’ve even been waffles and pancakes but don’t quote me on that. Later after the trek their supposedly heavy breakfast was just a salad and then some noodles. Hahaha… I’m just glad I ate a lot at the “light” breakfast.

0fe72eee-8734-425f-8930-2468864237cccd04e0b5-b120-47bb-b69a-6b141e24640a684c0072-bb65-4db8-bd72-3cff134d23456090272f-6d37-4fe0-9def-a12adaa02379

We got done with the trek by about 10:30am and then sailed back to shore… It was overall an insane experience and I’m so glad to have spent it with Andre and his family. They are the best people I’ve met, without whom I would’ve never gone for this crazy amazing holiday! So a huge thank you to Uncle Jude, Aunty Belmera, Adrian and ofcourse… ANDRE ❤ who is also responsible for the killer images!

MAY Favourites (in beauty)

Hello everybody 💕. 

We’ve finally gotten through the hottest month of them all, MAY!!! Aren’t you happy about that? I know I am. It’s so funny because , it’s so true what they say… “The grass is always greener on the other side.” We wait for summer to wear our cute outfits, sandals and hats. But then (especially here in Mumbai) the heat starts to get unbearable and all we want is for it to rain. Or is that just me? Anyway… Looks like that won’t be happening for another couple months or so. Getting to the point – Here are a few beauty products and perfumes / body mists I’ve been absolutely in love with this summer! 

The first and my absolute favourite is this peel off mask that I bought when I went to Vietnam. Not going to lie, I was very hesitant about using it at first. I tested it on my hand and only after I found that it was safe did I use it on my face. Hahahha…. Don’t worry I’m not usually this fussy, it’s only because this product was extremely cheap. It was about 60 INR. YEP! I KNOW RIDICULOUS !!! But genuinely…. It’s one of the best Peel Off Masks I’ve ever used.

  • It smells heavenly. It has that strong citrus scent which is extremely appealing. Heck! I could just sniff it all day!
  • It has a nice strong grip, so when you peel it off it really gets all that gunk out of your face and neck, leaving your skin super soft and very visibly clean.
  • The only downside is I have no idea of where you can get it from besides Vietnam’s supermarkets. However, I will check some sites online and let you know if I do end up finding the product.


This next product was actually a birthday gift from a friend of mine and I absolutely love it! It’s the Victoria’s Secret PASSION STRUCK in the Fuji Apple and Vanilla Orchid scent. It smells just like the description says – very fruity, fresh and summery with a hint of a floral scent. It’s perfect travel size too, so great to pop into any handbag when you’re on-the-go.


These are my current favourites in makeup. I am completely aware that I’m no expert in this sector , but I am really loving these products and would like to share them with you.

  • Let’s start off with the INVEDA BB Cream. It reads, ” 8 in 1 Cream with Magnolia & Almond. SPF 20. Fair Colour. For All Skin Types. ” So it does have a light coverage for any blemishes, spots or lines plus it has SPF which is perfect for the summer time. While keeping your face looking flawless and spot free it also protects you from the sun. Also this is the kind of product wherein a little bit goes a long way. If you end up using too much your face will start to feel like it’s just been smothered with moisturiser which is never a good feeling on a hot day. I use it by itself in the day time but as a primer if I have an evening function or event.
  • Let’s move on to the MAYBELLINE NEW YORK Concealer. Great coverage and very easy to blend which is the most important thing in any makeup product. They have quite a wide range of shades to choose from as well so it’s very unlikely that there won’t be one that matches your skin tone perfectly. Also, it’s extremely reasonable price wise compared to some of the other brands and it does work just as well.
  • Lastly, the MAYBELLINE NEW YORK Clear Glow ALL IN ONE SHINE FREE CAKE POWDER. It does have an SPF OF 32 which is always a bonus. It says on the packaging that it lasts for 8 hours, but I haven’t worn it even close to that amount of time to let you know if it’s true. Doesn’t make your face look cakey for sure and if you’re one with oily skin like me you should give this a try.

 

I’ve saved the best of all for last. My boyfriend gave this to me for my birthday and I’m in love. It’s the ZARA WOMAN GOLD. I’m already the biggest Zara fan and this perfume doesn’t only look gorgeous but smells heavenly too. The packaging itself looks so elegant, classy and rich. This is a gift any woman/ girl would be delighted to receive. I know I was. It has a bit of a mature scent , not the kind that you would picture your grandmother with but , the kind a sexy flawless lady with pointy heels, a white buttoned down shirt and a black pencil skirt would be caught wearing. What can I say? It smells just like it looks – Classy, Elegant & Rich.

 

So these were all the products I’ve been loving this month and am now using extremely sparingly as I don’t want to run out. I’m curious to know what are some of your recent favourites? Let me know in the comments so I can get a hold of them and enjoy them too 😃. Follow me to stay updated of when I upload new posts. Love you!
