Dress over Jeans

Image
I don't know about you but I, for a matter of fact, make sure to dress up keeping in mind the area I am visiting to! So when I decided to visit the Bada Imambara in Lucknow, I chose to go the fusion way by pairing a beautifully embroidered dress over a pair of dual shade denims.  Bada Imambara, like I mentioned before, is a mosque which obviously has religious sentiments attached to it. Respecting that it became a lot more important for me to to choose an outfit which doesn't offend others & do not make me awkward amidst the crowd! 
But instead of the good old traditional, I very thoughtfully created a contemporary attire.

Picked this stunning off-white dress for its intricate details & unconventional hemline and paired it up with mom jeans with colour-block pattern!
To add some statement to the look I side swept my hair & added this oversized, handmade Maharani earring just on one side. Err, do Nawab & Maharani get along? Finally, a pair a sneakers because the …

Miniso Haul

Image
Miniso, a renowned Japanese brand, famous for its quirky products at affordable prices recently launched its first store in India at Ambience Mall, Vasant Kunj. The prices of the products starts from 150 INR onwards across so many categories including beauty, stationery, gift items, digital accessories and more! 

So when I got to attend the launch, I couldn't resist myself from shopping my heart out, despite of it being insanely crowded. I managed to pick alot of cutesy, creative products at extremely reasonable prices and decided to do this haul post for you all to see how this store is a must visit when you head towards Ambience Mall next time. 
I got to shop 6 amazing products for not more that 1700 INR, and as a part of first day offer got a discount of 100 INR on my purchase. So basically, my haul costed me just 1600 INR, which I am sure is a steal for the kind of products that I chose.  Plus I also got 4 products from the brand in the media kit, about which I'll mention t…

Review | Lakme 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Powder Foundation

Image
I always believe that we all inherit a lot of things from our mothers be it beauty, nature or style. Similarly to that we also tend to fall for the brands they use, and this is how I have been passed down 'love & loyalty' towards Lakme! I have seen my mom using this brand since ages & how she refuses to replace it with any other, for its sheer affordability & quality.


While I have been stocking certain Lakme products dedicatedly in my vanity since the time I've started using makeup, when I got to know about their latest '9 to 5 Primer + Matte Powder Foundation' launch, I knew I had to try these out too. 
Pricing: 600 INR each
Packaging: Beautifully packed, the rose gold compact comes with a mirror & a puff, where a separate bottom section with perfect ventilation is provided to place the puff, to keep bacteria at bay! 
Shades: Rose SilkIvory CreamSilky GoldenNatural LightHoney DewNatural Almond
The brand this time unveiled six shades, including two new sh…

Review | My Envy Box (August)

Image
Back again with a new box of surprises! Unlike last time this box not only contained skincare products but also had a beauty product, which quite obviously upped my excitement to receive it. My Envy Box unveiled this edition with the tagline #CelebratingBeauty, so lets check out how well do they succeed i doing that. 
Pricing: 850 INR for 1-month subscription Packaging: My Envy Box August edition came in an ethereal Lavender box with floral pattern. Surprisingly, the products perfectly complimented with the delicateness & beauty of the pattern! Though despite being safely packed, one of the products that I received was damaged, but somehow I fixed it.

Products: The August edition has 5 products (both trial & full-size)
Soultree - Lipstick (Coral Pink)
Full size: 4.5gm | 550 INR

Sadly, the product for which I was really excited about was the one that came damaged despite of amazingly sturdy packaging. But the shade was too pretty to not be used, so I utilised my DIY skills & fixe…

Back to Basics

Image
I have often seen influencers looking down upon 'basics', citing this style to be very mundane & one can do nothing to make it look fancy! But I don't agree with it because somehow you ought to sport it on regular basis because you obviously cannot dress up all the time, for no reason. 
o I thought of creating a look which is absolutely basic but amping up the fashion quotient to add my personal style to it. Not-Your-Conventional-Basic-Outfit
I took the most used & abused basic outfit combination of a tee with a pair of denims and made it look sartorially savvy by opting for flared chambray pants. Like we all know that chambray gives the perfect illusion of denims while be light as a feather, and that's what we need during summers as well as during unpredictable rains. 
Paired it up with a basic tee & layered over a bralette with embroidered patches, which camouflaged and made it look like an embroidered tee! Added my favorite tan mules & kept my clear gla…
