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 ✨
Morning, afternoon, evening Fleekies! (Depends on when you’re reading this)
Hope you’re enjoying the ridiculously hot weather (: I know I am! Because with the heat I end up waking up earlier which in turn leads me to getting more done and feeling a lot happier.
Speaking of happy, there’s this new cool jewelry / accessory brand called THE HAPPY TRIBE. I personally love it because every piece is hand crafted. Every stone, every wire and each chain is personally handpicked to create these gorgeous pieces. Which means no two pieces will be the same. Ever.
Here are some of my favourites from her collection.
If you’re interested and want to get in touch with her, check out Instagram of course – the most millennial destination to ever exist! There’s a lot more stuff you’ll love ❤ . Also, you know the drill… To keep getting her products on your feed follow @happytribee . Because what can make you happier that fashion? Let me know if you know the answer to that. Really, please do.
I started The Happy Tribe purely because of the joy it brought me. I try and keep my designs just like every one of my customers – unique, beautiful, imperfectly perfect. Right from inception, The Happy Tribe has given me unimaginable opportunities, memories and so much to look forward to.
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 ❤ .
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.
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!
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!
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 😊.
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?
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!
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
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!
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.
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:
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:
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!
