How to wear: Sleeveless Blazer/ Long Vest for Fall/Winter 2015

Hi everyone. 😀

So what’s that one trend that you’re absolutely pining for, and dreaming about day & night? And I’m talking about Fall/Autumn, because Summer is clearly getting over. As I type, it’s 20 degree celsius and the wind has been getting chillier every day. I mean, seriously, August is not even over & it’s ALREADY getting cold? I can’t even imagine what’s going to happen when it’s full-fledged winter. Brrr! Like my SO keeps telling me that it will be crazy- mind-boggling cold weather for months & months, but oh well- I’ll just have to see how I survive through it, right? 😉

Anywhooo, coming back to my point, or else I’ll keep rambling. So you know what I desperately want for my Fall wardrobe? I really, really want a Long Vest! Olivia Palermo has given it her style stamp and the Kardashian clan swears by it as well. It’s clearly the ‘IT ITEM’ for Fall, and all the fashionistas having been swearing by it.

But you know what the problem is? The usual one, I’d say. 😛 Most of the styles are quite expensive, and for trying a new trend- I really wouldn’t want to spend a bomb. So I hunted high & low, and finally found a style that fits my dream and budget. 😉

Awards Sunday! :D

Happy, Happy Sunday to you all!

I hope you had a great week and that the weekend has been all about relaxation and fun that you’d been looking forward to.

As for me, I have been cra-aazy busy studying for my NCA Examinations. The entire Examination structure is completely opposite to what I’d been doing in India, so yea, it’s got me quite psyched & I’m really stressed pretty much all the time.

But, but, but I have been super excited for doing THIS post because the super sweet & lovely Brianna at OnlineBeautyFinds nominated me for the Liebster Award. Oh my Gosh- for some silly reason this gets me all hyper & animated! 😛

Ok, so let’s jump right into to the Award 😀 😀

The Fashion Genie is FINALLY here- BLINGE <3

So today I’m talking about something, which every woman on this planet ponders about. And I certainly can’t put it better than Rebecca Bloomwood from ‘Confessions of a Shopaholic’. Remember those golden words- “You know that thing when you see someone cute and he smiles and your heart kind of goes like warm butter sliding down hot toast? Well, that’s what it’s like when I see a Store. Only, it’s better! “

I know, right? Even more, when the Store proudly displays the four-lettered word- SALE on its windows. That’s pure love, and nothing comes between my ❤ & me. And can you blame me? There’re just so many options to choose from & I literally NEED all of it in my life. I swear, I REALLY REALLY do.

But lately I’ve started realising that wallet constraints can be a big bummer, especially when your heart pines for all high-end brands. 😳 Versace, why you gotta be so expensive!! So you know that moment, when your best friend throws an impromptu party, and you have nothing new to wear & an empty wallet at the end of the month! I do not like repeating clothes, so I would try my best to make the old ones work at such times. But, trust me, you &  I both know that swapping the belt, or shoes, do not make that old dress look new. It still looks timeworn and faded, and I do not feel as confident as I want to, when I enter the party. 😦

Aaaaand that’s why I have been on cloud nine, since I found Blinge! In plain, simple words- it’s my fashion genie & it grants me all my wishes. What else could I ask for! 😛

How to wear Culottes!

Hi everyone,

Happy Happy Tuesday!

To all my fellow Canadian residents, how was the long weekend? The weather was absolutely perfect all the 3 days, and I’m so bummed that we didn’t get to hit the beach. :\

But, but but… this weekend I finally went to watch ‘Jurassic World’. I wasn’t expecting much out of it,  but I actually enjoyed every bit of it. Quite different from the previous ones, and a really, good movie- I would say. Oh, but contrary to my previous statement regarding the weather- it started pouring cats & dogs once the movie got over. We were planning to eat at ‘Shoeless Joes’ because I wanted to try it out, so we had to dig out the umbrellas cause it was literally 20 steps away from the Hall. Oh, and funny story- the waitress actually asked for my ID when I ordered my cocktail. I mean, can you believe that- I’m so sick of being asked for my ID ALL the time! 😡

Anyhoo, what inspired this post is the super cooling AC in the Movie-hall. Seriously, somebody should tell them to turn it down. I was wearing a dress, and I did carry my Cardi, but my legs were getting super-duper chilly. And all I could think was- Culottes! That’s what I NEED next time! Hahaha. 😛

Blog Tour Award! Yayiiiie :D

Happy Monday, people!

I hope you guys had a great weekend. I know I’ve been a little MIA lately, because I’m trying to start my Canadian Law Licensing process. This requires extensive study, too many exams and oh-so-much-time! So yea, now that you know what’s been up- let’s move ahead to today’s post. 😀

I’m super excited for it because I’ve been nominated for the Blog Tour Award, by the lovely Coral Lawson. She blogs about Fashion, Food and so much more. So be sure to check her out as well. 😀

So the rules of this Award are pretty simple, but they do require quite some thinking, as compared to the other Awards. I mean, explaining our creative process- hmmm, how do I start on that, eh? Well, Coral had already selected the questions that I’m supposed to answer, so let’s just jump right into it.

Bedroom Decor: Ideas & Inspiration

Hii you!

Happy Happy Thursday!

I hope you’re having a great morning. It had been relatively gloomy here in Toronto, but today it looks super sunny outside. And I hope & pray & am keeping my fingers crossed that it stays the same- because sunny days are the best. And I want every single one of them, until winter rolls in the North. 😆

Anyhow, moving ahead to what I’m talking about today- I have been obsessing over doing our Bedroom. Now, having lived in School & University Hostels for 7 years, I always believed myself to be fairly acquainted to the idea of decorating my space. For example, during my School days, I had a huuuuge poster of Enrique Iglesias in my room, proudly declaring my undying love for him. Then my taste gradually changed, and during my University days, I would keep my beds perfectly done, with complementary curtains, doormat and well-decorated desk. Partial wallpaper and subtle lighting was enough those days, and I loved everything about my room. Good enough, right?

Well, kind of WRONG. Once you enter the real world, you realise that even decent sized bedrooms are probably 3 times the size of the rathole that Universities make us live in. And yes, decorating them doesn’t come easy at all. :\

Windy City Chronicled: Chicago Travel Diary

With extremely limited time at hand, (for we were actually headed to a family event in Wisconsin), we had stopped at Chicago for merely 2 days. Which was really sad because there was C-R-A-Z-Y Sale going on everywhere owing to the 4th of July weekend. But let’s not talk about that right now, cause that makes me really sad. 😐

Chicago’s bold architecture, super-lively culture, all-embracing attractions and fierce winds come together to create a grandiose experience. The magnificence of this city is undoubtedly unparalleled & cannot be well appreciated within 48 hours. However, I have attempted to capture it the best that I could- whilst walking on 4 inches of heels. 😛 (Seriously, this city requires extensive walking & you M-U-S-T carry flats with you). Have a look.

So while you’re reading this, I’m out holidaying in Chicago & I cannot wait to get back & share the snaps. Apart from the city tour, I’ll actually be attending a big, fat family event & I’m so excited for that. 🙂

So while all of that unfolds, I thought I’d share a few styles & trends that I’m totally loving this season. Before I buy anything, I always like to imagine the various ways possible to style that piece, so here I’ve included my ideas as well. Keep scrolling to check out my selections.

Vera Wang Princess Set- Review!

Hello everyone,

Happy Tuesday to all of you! 🙂

Ohk, so remember the time when I created a Spring List here? I had so much of fun doing that, & I’d been looking forward to finalising a Summer version as well. But only when it feels like summer, right? It was raining here for the entire weekend, and all my plans to get out of town were “whoooooooosh”– thrown into the trash. Aaand now that the weekend is over, look at that Sun shining! 😡

Anyhow, I’m still excited because this week is going to fun, family & soo much shopping (here’s hoping for that ^^’ ). Yes, I’ll be travelling to Chicago & then heading to a big, fat family event over the 4th of July weekend. And the coincidence can only mean more awesomeness, right? Also, that reminds me that I haven’t even started packing so I’ve to get to that as well. 😛

Moving ahead, remember me talking about Dolce by D&G in my Spring List? I found that bottle sooooo pretty-pwetty that I’d ve considered getting that solely for that reason. Well, luckily I’ve got one such in my collection now, and it’s even more pretty. ❤
