How to look expensive when you’re broke AF!

Heylo Fleekies,

Is that still a thing btw, to say ‘heylo’ ? Who knows, who cares. Now I don’t know about you but I’m almost always broke af. One day I won’t be (hopefully) but until then, here’s how to you know… FAKE IT TILL YOU MAKE IT, BRAG IT TILL YOU BAG IT, SHOW IT TILL YOU SCORE IT. LOOK IT THOUGHT IT ISN’T IT.

  1. Athleisure baby!

There’s literally no downside to this. You’ll be comf, cute and well… expensive (seem so anyway). Since every rich person ever is in with the trend. Less is more, not trying too hard is the new trying hard. If you know what I mean.

  1. Switch up basic 

You can literally buy any plain basic tee and make it look chic / fashion forward by knotting it up and tucking it under. You could skip the tucking under part but I just feel it looks more classy. Then again… who am I really?

  1. French is fancy.

If you find a tee with a French quote on it, bag it. It could literally be INR 150, baggy as hell or ripped but since it says something with acutes and graves, it must be high fashion, right? Dress it up with a blazer and a neck piece. Or maybe a formal black skort and heels or mules!

  1. Steal every deal!

This is no news to look out for the best deals. But I would suggest getting really neutral, staple pieces. Like a pair of classic denim shorts. Or cute workout clothes that are normally extremely overpriced at Nike! ):


Honestly these could be 6000 bucks from French Connection, who would really know? I know because I have the 6000 FCUK ones too and their basically the same thing. But I get the whole wanting to splurge feeling. But this ain’t that blog post!

  1. Make sure you’re having one of them ‘ GOOD HAIR DAYS ‘

Wash it, curl it, straighten it, dry shampoo it – do what you gotta do because if your hair isn’t working your outfit won’t work. And well, if your hair is fab, you can pull off a brown paper bag!

Hope you found this useful. Let me know in the comments if you have any more tips and tricks on how to look expensive when you’re broke af!

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.

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.

Essentially what I wore!

Hello Fleeky boys and girls! How’s it going?

Hope you had a wonderful 2018, as did I. To kick start the new year (well I say new year, lol! It’s already the 16th) I thought it would only be right to show you some of the outfits I brought with me on my trip to Goa. Wow! That sentence was a mouthful, oh well!

Hope you like these tropical / beachy / summer ready OOTDs. Let me know which is your favourite too in the comment section.

Day time looks

Felt it would only be right to start off with the outfit on the cover. This bathing suit – shorts – flip flop combo is my absolute fave. And a staple for any tropical vacation.

Got this swimsuit from SheIn – super affordable and looks bomb, eh? If I’m going to be honest, this was a size Small and was still quite big for me. Especially on the boobage area ):

So if you have small boobs like me, please size down! Looks great in pictures though and makes sure I keep my back straight, haahhaa…

Link to my swimsuit:https://www.shein.in/Letter-Print-Scoop-Neck-One-Piece-Swimsuit-p-373147-cat-1866.html

First off, please excuse my terrible editing job on this picture. Now that we got that out of the way, let’s continue…

This is one of those throw on and look pretty kinda looks, don’t you think? Same shorts. Same day. Same swimsuit underneath but denim has a way of not looking repetitive. So throw on a cute top and you’re as good as new.

I got this top from Bluenotes Canada but any cute casual top will work.

You will soon find out that I have an obsession with blue. Start counting the number of blue looks now onward, please. We’re at number 2.

Nevertheless, I love this top. Just the right amount of pretty to make it look like I put effort into this outfit without being too over the top for a walk to have coconut water.

Wish I could link it but I got this ages ago from Chemistry.

Blue top number 3. And hey! Give me a like just because I have a different pair of shorts on here. Bet you weren’t expecting that, were you? (:

Also I think this is one the the cheapest looks. Shorts for $5 from Bluenotes Canada and top for Rs. 300 from Forever 21.

Outfit under $10 boys and girls!

Let’s now move on to the night time looks. And keeping that blue count on!

Number 4. Yes, this dress is blue if the colours aren’t too clear. In my defense, blue is probably the best colour to wear on vacation.

It’s calming, soothing and the colour of the ocean.

Also looking at these pictures now, I look kind of pregnant. Hahahaha… Probably the dress but mostly all the food I’ve been eating on this trip. Let me know if you would like to see a blog post on some of my favourite places to eat at Goa!

Oh look! Black clothes!
Hehehehe… Which one do you like more?

The black dress is like my uniform! I wear it literally all the time and everywhere! So easy to dress up and dress down. Got it for I think Rs. 800 or 900 from Forever 21. Best purchase I tell you.

The Bohemian esq top is from a girl in Malad who sells clothes from her home so I don’t know how to share her details with you ): But she also supplies to brands and boutiques. And I believe she had this top for Global Desi. So if you’re into this style, check them out.

My travel back home outfit, of course.

Simple, comf, cute. Once I let my hair down that is (:
Top: Basic tee from Zara
Tights: Victoria Sport

And that’s the end of all the outfits I wore on my Goa trip. Let me know which outfit was your fave and which one you hated.

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 ♥️

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

‘Heels higher than your standards!’ SO YESTERDAY

Call me lazy, call me crazy! I love my flats.

Also because I can’t walk to save my life in heels, and I couldn’t care less to try. But who cares, right?

I think flats add so much more interest to a look. I think it makes an outfit unexpected in a way – mostly because people expect you to be all girly and high heely!
Yep. Stereotyping isn’t my thing.

Also whoever said there’s no gain without pain, clearly hasn’t seen the choice of flats out there! Here are some of my wardrobe favorites!

From: Vero Moda

From: Ardene, Canada

From: Vietnam, Street Store

From: Ardene, Canada

From: Forever 21, USA

Let me know if you like this post by liking it. And I’ll do a part two of my favourite flats.
Because to be honest, there’s plenty more where that came from!

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!
