Now “flashing your rocks” has a completely different meaning 😛 How do we all feel about carrying a giant shiny stone for a clutch? Couldn’t-be-more-excited you say? Good now that we are on the same page let’s all ogle at this lovely Stella McCartney purse that most of us can’t afford. 😉 Sigh ❤
Phew… Last season was all about the high low(ask pinterest)! Though I see people still wear it a lot.. I do think it’s at the fag end of it’s popularity! So am trying to wear all my highlow pieces as often as I can before it’s time to snip off the hem and make them all regular skirts! 😛 But you do have to admit, they photograph really well and yes they also seem to flatter your legs!:)
Hello all you lovely people,
Hows it going? I literally had to drag myself from bed to get ready for the week! An extra day would have been perfect don’t you think? 🙂 Fat chance though! Anyway here are the top 5 things I did last week.
1. I thought this day would never come.. but yes I tried a green juice for the first time :O( I usually quitely laugh at people who advocate these kinds of super healthy foods) with kale, spinach, parsley, celery, cucumber and green apples. Though it did taste a little funny initally, it grows on you! I think am going to try to make this part of my routine.. and yes Prat is the one who is doing the quite laughter routine now 😛 2. Bought my first epilator ever! Heading to the beauty salon when all I want to do is laze around has been a not-so-recent problem of mine. So I am hoping this epilady can help justify my laziness 😛 3. I religiously eat at the neighbourhood middle eastern take out.. and would be sad to not go there anymore.. but nevertheless am quite proud to say I can whip up a mean batch of home made falafels from this recipe here 🙂4. I am a sci-fi lover and it doesn’t get better than this. I am halfway through the book and as much as I liked the movie it can’t hold a candle to the original. 🙂5. If you are anything like me and have to buy hair bands every month because you dont know what you did with the ones you had already, this DIY would be a lifesaver! 😛 Trust me when I tell you it saves me 5 whole minutes every morning 🙂 Here’s wishing you all a super week! Let’s hope it goes in a blink! 🙂
Do not be fooled by the word finale and expect something grandoise as a conclusion to this week’s polka posts! I choose to pull the curtains down on this challenge with a mildly boring mix-it-up outfit for which the neon espadrilles and the polka dots of course are the happy parts:) Disregard my unsightly gym bag.. but do enjoy the lovely view of my local subway station 😛 Have a fun weekend and don’t forget to do something crazy!
However much I love polka, let’s take a breather from the challenge and do a little blurb on trends…. I am pleased to announce that all my cartoon tees and printed comic-strip goodies that I had deemed unacceptable to be seen in public as an adult can now be happily worn outside 😛There is an influx of these pop art inspired graphic pieces everywhere – from the runway to the H&M down the road. The key to this look would probably be to keep the rest of your outfit polished considering the comic piece lends enough playfulness to your outfit. Or if you are anything like me.. Just keep everything casual and get mistaken for a college kid! 😛 Which brings us to the question… Is this a trend-to-try? 🙂
Going by the number of views I got on my post yesterday, I must say this idea wasn’t so bad after all:) Thank you everyone! So in line with the polka challenge, here’s my 2nd out fit in the series – shorts and dots for WORK! I don’t know about you’ll but I somehow always think of the beach and the outdoors when I think shorts! Even for someone who works in the fashion industry, in my head I equate shorts to flip flops- inappropriate for work but no one is going to tell you that :P! But when it is as hot as it is, you are forced to exercise your creativity in more ways than one . The result- A tailored pair of slim shorts cut longer, a slouchy polka blouse in a bright color,neutral accessories and pop lips! Voila!:)
Trust my very long subway rides to give me the best ideas…!:P Since I like(just barely though) posting my outfits, and love( putting it mildly)polka dots, I thought why not combine the two for entertaining results! Starting today preethi does polka and how! Today’s pick was a simple slouchy tee paired with pleated polka pants! Polka.Pants.Peace! 🙂
Hi & Hello people,
Hope you all had a super awesome weekend! 🙂 I spent most of mine cowering indoors, fearing the oppressive heat! But I managed to sneak these things in when I felt brave enough to venture out 🙂
1. Treated myself to yummy piyaz salad and turkish lentil soup at the local middle easten joint!2. Soaked up the waves at brighton beach after the sun took leave for the day of course! 🙂 3. Tried the ombre trend with prink and orange nails- perfect summer DIY<34. Move over sodas and fruit juice! 🙂 My new go -to drink has been home made fruit flavored water the last couple of days! So easy to do and so apt for the crazy heat. Try it here5. My cat eye and I are inseperable and when I ran out of my trusted eyeliner( from India) I went into panic mode… until I found this supper skinny eye marker from NYX which is now a new favorite!:) Here’s wishing you all a fab week ahead! Stay hydrated 🙂
Make way for the new kid on the block folks! Please join me in welcoming “trend-to-try” thursdays( because who doesn’t LURRRVEEEE trends!) 😛 which follows on the heels of it’s moderately successful cousin Hi5 Mondays!:) Anyhow I kick start this series with my current obsession – printed pants! I know I have excessively raved about them in the recent past..but I promise you this will be the last time.. it’s just that they are so easy and comfy 😉 Which brings me to the question- Is this a trend you will try?
Who wants to go on a vacation? Me me me.. Who can’t go on vacation because she has to work? me me me again!:P So well the least I can do is to turn up at work dressed like I am on a tropical island sipping on some lemonade and lounging by the beach;) I am hoping they take a hint and send me off on a looong holday! A girl can wish can’t she?:P Happy day!
