Gucci Bamboo On Fleek?

Heyyy!

Honestly, this is way too boujee for me. I mean… don’t get me wrong. I’m stoked to have it but I don’t think I can afford to keep buying it.

Would I if I could though? I still think not. But I might be being slightly too harsh. 🤷🏻‍♀️

The body wash literally smells like a perfume. The scent is extremely strong and beautiful I feel like I’m bathing in perfume. Slightly weird not going to lie. Especially because the scent isn’t one you associate with bath time , lol!

I use it on my face and it leaves my skin feeling lovely. Squeaky clean, fresh and soft. Normally I don’t ever use body wash on my face because my skin is extremely sensitive but I figured…. Gucci so why the hell not?!

Next step: use it as sparingly as possible because if anything, it looks good in your bath product collection

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!

CYCLING ADVENTURES

Hello everyone!

And welcome to today’s blog post. Today is a bright sunny day as every other day here in Mumbai, lol. But if you’re looking for something to do over the weekend, or on a weekday… Rent a bike with your buddy and tour the streets. Preferably before 8:00am because you’d probably get a sun stroke and faint after that. But a little exercise first thing in the morning, I always find makes me feel a lot more active during the day.

Here’s some pictures from our cycle tour in Kumarakom, Kerala. Literally thought Shanice would give up after leaving the hotel property itself. But boy did she surprise me! We did a good two hours or so of cycling around the village from 7:00am to 9:40am. It was the best thing ever! The clean air, birds chirping, the gorgeous sceneries and the exercise of course.

Got back to the hotel to this gorgeous breakfast. Classic eggs and baked beans. With fruit obviously because you know how I feel about photogenic foods 😉 hahahha… but no after those healthy two hours, I definitely needed some fruit in my system. And obviously coffee too. But then again, I always need coffee in my system and I’m sure you do too.

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.

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?

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.

If it’s Insta-Worthy, I’ll eat!

Hello 🌻

This officially the hottest it’s ever been. Also one hundred percent sure I’ll say the same thing next year, but OMG! Sorry, this was just an unrelated pointless ramble. Nobody ever talks about the weather anymore. Jeez!

Have you really eaten something if you haven’t Insta-Storied it? Do you even feel hungry when you have enough cute pictures that match your theme? And is the aesthetic more important than the actual food itself? 

That last one might be pushing it a bit too far. Here are some of my favorite places Insta wise as well as some of my favorite places to actually eat at. Even when I don’t need to update my feed. That’s saying alot now!

Breakfast at The Sassy Spoon!
The Kitchen Garden by Suzette
Bombay Salad Co.

Hope you liked this post. If you did make sure to like it, and follow me to be updated anytime I upload something new.  
Also feel free to suggest in the comments what kinds of post you’ll would like me to do.

‘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!

Jamie’s Pizzeria Review & OOTN!

Hello gorgeous ❤️!

Long before I even thought of starting a blog, I used to eat way too much outside food!  So I began Zomato reviewing and I love it! I enjoying telling you guys and people in general about how much I love / hate a place, dish or service that I thought it’s high time I do a proper blog post review!

img_0209-bw

Jamie’s Pizzeria by Jamie Oliver! I’ve been watching Jamie’s TV shows for years! Now I watch his YouTube channels – FOOD TUBE and Drinks TUBE. So I thought it would only be fair if this was the first place I reviewed on my blog. I plan on doing many more restaurant reviews so I hope you like it ☺️☺️☺️. 

img_0196-bw

I completed a month at my new job, so to celebrate André took me out to dinner. I kind of chose where I wanted to go and wouldn’t budge from Jamie’s. But, OH WELL❣Still a fabulous night. 

They’ve stayed true to the one pizza per person concept they have abroad which i think is great. As I’m not the biggest sharer! 😝 But I do share with André. We started off with the classic – Pepperoni pizza! You really can’t go wrong with it.  The crust was just the right amount of thin and the pizza was just the right amount of greesy! Yes. The cheese stretched as i bit into it. If you couldn’t tell already- I LOVED IT!

img_0200

We loved it so mcuh we ordered another. The Spicy Meatball pizza. Not going to lie, it wasn’t nearly as good as the first one. Number one it was so spicy I wouldn’t be surprised if i had gotten ulcers the next day! Besides that, I can’t quite put a finger on what exactly was the problem with it. Theoretically the pizza was perfect, but it lacked that WOW factor (if you get what I mean). I just wouldn’t be missing out on anything if I didn’t have this one. 

img_0206

The place isn’t the biggest and surprisingly the menu has way too many veg options! But never the less, I’m glad I visited and I would love to come again! Especially for some more Pepperoni Pizza and to try out their Margherita!!!

What really stood out and obviously it was supposed to was the mural on the wall. It’s a painting of some of the iconic things in Mumbai! It caught my eye within seconds. And the bright colours against the concrete wall was just 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻!

 

Now on to my Outfit Of The Night a.k.a My OOTN!

(Top: Zara | Jeans: Vietnam | Shoes: Vietnam | Bag: Forever 21)

For any of you who are thinking, “Why would you dress up so casually on DATE NIGHT?!” Well my answer to that is, Why the hell not? Wear what you’re comfortable in. Wear what makes you happy. Ripped jeans are one of my favourite clothing items and so are comfy tees. So own what you love! May sound very cliché, but it’s true! 🙃

And always remember: You don’t have to be society’s definition of perfect to be ON FLEEK! You just need to be the best version of YOU❣

XOXO ❤️❤️❤️
