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’s the weather treating you? Finally the rains are behind us (I hope) which means better hair days for all us girls, guys, dogs, heck even horses! lol 😅😜.
Anyway… to make sure of them good hair days regardless of the weather I decided to give freewill a shot. If you don’t know what I’m on about, freewill is basically a personalised hair care brand. It’s available online and what you have to do is fill in all your hair routine details. They ask you stuff like how much time do you spend in the sun, what’s your workout routine like, the basics like – your hair texture, is your scalp oily or dry etc.
I absolutely loved the concept of a shampoo personalised especially for me, so of course I ordered it and here we are about what I think of it!
In short – definitely a yes!
Not going to lie, it isn’t the best shampoo I’ve used but it does feel really good! My hair feels much much softer, my scalp does feel a lot cleaner / a lot fresher, also I’m flipping obsessed with the smell and packaging!
I think it’s a great gift option for your friend whose hair you know everything about! Or for your mum – I just love that the bottles come with your name on it. Feels so special ✨💁🏻♀️.
It is slightly on the pricy side I guess but worth the money I would say. And if it’s actually sulfate, paraben, phthalate and formaldehyde free like they say then👌🏻💯🙌🏻.
Do youreally NEED this in yourlife? Nope but then again, do you reallyneed any of the things you buy? If you’re into experimenting with new cool stuff, this is for suresomethingyoushould try out !
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.
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.
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?
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!
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!
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!
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!
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.
Pick and twist two sections from either side of your head all the way to the back
Tie both sections into a double knot as you would with your shoe lace
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. (:
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!
Loosely pick bits from the around your forehead
Attempt to make a half up messy bun
Bobby pin it up leaving a generous number of stands out
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 ❤ .
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.
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.
This is the official description and it’s pretty accurate.
” Debuting the first fragrance developed wholly under Alessandro Michele’s creative vision: a scent designed to celebrate the authenticity, vitality and diversity of women—flourishing in a natural, expressive and individual way. Blended by master perfumer Alberto Morillas under the direction of the House’s Creative Director, Gucci Bloom is created to unfold like its name, capturing the rich scent of a thriving garden filled with an abundance of flowers. Tuberose and jasmine combine with Rangoon Creeper—a unique flower discovered in South India that is being used for the first time in perfumery to create a rich fragrance that transports the wearer to an imaginary garden. The scent is presented in a lacquered bottle, reminiscent of porcelain, in a vintage powder pink shade with a Gucci label appliqué. #InBloom ”
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.
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…
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.
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 .
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!
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.
Welcome! Or welcome back 😀 I think this one is hands down one of my favourite posts. Firstly, I absolutely love Fashion! Also, I not only got to do a freaking low key shoot but I’m super excited for you’ll to see how I’ve styled my favourite pair of jeans! Good Times Guys! Good Times!
I’m totally aware that to some of you the jeans might me a bit too OUT THERE, but then again, you’re not going to actually be wearing the same pair of jeans. This is just for some Style Inspo and hopefully will get you out of a fix on, ‘What can I wear with this?’.
OUTFIT 1: Comfy Casual!
(Top: Zara; Jeans: Zara (over 3 years old); Bag: Vietnam; Shoes: Vietnam)
This first outfit is my everyday GO-TO look. I don’t know about you, but I love the huge rips in the jeans. Yes, the ‘Hobo Chic Look’. Now in all honesty this pair of jeans can be paired with practically any top but a plain white Tee and Blue denim is just my favourite combination!
Tip: If your top is a wee bit too long and you’re just not happy with the look, try tucking in a small portion of it. It makes all the difference!
This is a perfect look in the summer as well if for some reason you can’t wear shorts (you know the struggle of having to wax for shorts girls!). The jeans keep you super breezy and cool, but still cover the most part of your legs that you intend to keep hidden.
OUTFIT 2: Sunday Brunch!
(Top: Forever 21)
This next look has instantly taken a girly turn but still very true to Street Style. All I’ve done is switched out the basic tee to a very feminine top and it instantly changes the occasion I would wear it to. I think it would be perfect for a Sunday Brunch which is why – The Title! LOL. Of course, that’s just my opinion. You could wear this anywhere you want to.
Tip: If you’re on-the-go and you need to change from a casual to a more dressy look, just change tops and accessories!
I threw on some glittery ballerinas and a floppy hat and it’s now so girly-esk! Loving this look. If you’re a heels kind of girl, this would look super cute in some tan or brown wedges!
This third and final outfit is (I would say) is a night time look. Ofcourse you don’t want to be carrying anything big and what more than your phone and money could you possibly need? So this phone case that doubles as a mini wallet is perfect. They didn’t have the same one I have so I linked something similar and in my opinion cuter!
Tip: To change any outfit from a daytime look to a nighttime one, all you got to do is throw in some black.
If its a tube top – even more apt for drinks out or even a house party. As for the shoes, as you can see I’ve just gone for some plain black basic ballerinas. But something that will instantly elevate the look a lot more are some nude pointy toe heels.
And that’s all for today. I tried to link all the items that I wore that were still available on the sites. Even though that’s only two, I think all the items are pretty basic and similar items can easily be found in case you want to purchase them.
A huge to Thank You to the best photographer I know, Andre Fernandes for the pictures and for all the madness that went into the shoot. And by madness I mean climbing up on construction poles to get that top shot! You’re an absolute delight to work with.
I hope you liked the post 🙂 Make sure to LIKE, FOLLOW, SHARE and COMMENT. Also let me know which of the three outfits was your fav, I’m dying to know. Love you all lots!!!
