Beauty routines, or rather makeup routines for a lot of people have come down to a minimal in this lockdown. Everyone’s skincare game is suddenly very strong – because how else do you replace that commute time, right? Which is why I know a lot of people whose skin is literally THRIVING right now.
You’re spending hours exfoliating,
“You can wear a white shirt with anything. It’s the person and the way that they wear it that makes it different. I have been designing white shirts forever, but I don’t get tired of it.” ~ Carolina Herrera
The white shirt is truly a chameleon – something so simple, yet wildly versatile. Depending on your mood (Feeling flirty?
In case you forgot; Raksha Bandhan is just around the corner! Even though you may not be able to have an elaborate celebration like always, you can still get your hands on the perfect gift for your sisters; and brothers, just in case you are guilted (like I am) into buying prezzies for the boys as well!
A pear-shaped body is one where the widest part of your body is below the waist or as Beyoncé would tell you…
Being 5’1 and this shape, I have experimented over the years with plenty of trends to finally figure out styles that flatter my body and what I feel most comfortable in. The last decade has truly been about embracing your curves,
If you haven’t watched Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham at least once in your life, I don’t think we can be friends. As a girl who has watched it twice EVERY YEAR for the last ten years, I know this movie inside out. Even small details like which ‘Kabhi’ has an extra ‘e’ in the title –
Style is inherent. You either have it or you don’t. But, it can be acquired. For some, it comes easily, but for many, it’s a learning curve. Not everyone knows what styles suit him or her best. That’s where we come in. Last week we extended our services on Instagram to find out what style-related issues our followers were facing.
Contrary to popular belief that less make-up means better skin, lockdown has not been kind to my skin. I haven’t put any make up on since the start of this lockdown (March, yes it’s been that long!) and still constantly break out, have redness and dry, patchy skin at different stages. I have reached out for my ride or die products,
At the very beginning of this lockdown, I promised myself I would stay away (far, far away) from online shopping. We’re not going out, meeting people, going to work, parties or anywhere really, so why in the world would I need new clothes? At the very best I would put on a clean t-shirt to go down and get the mail but apart from that,
No one loves a good hair spa than I do. Heading to a salon twice a month to let someone else nourish my hair while I sat back with a magazine was almost ritualistic. Until this pandemic of course. Everything was now left in my (I’d like to say) capable hands and if nothing, I had one thing on my side –
Last week I stumbled upon a denim skirt that I had kept away in my wear-again-someday closet and it actually made me happy to rediscover it! I had completely forgotten about its existence and it actually gave me the same feeling that shopping for a new item usually does. Recycling our own wardrobe is the new retail therapy at the moment and conscious buying is the need of the hour.
Just like clothes, every person has a distinct jewellery style. Some people like it edgy and ornate while others prefer more delicate and subtle styles. I for one belong to the latter. Not one to experiment much with everyday jewellery, I gravitate towards simple timeless styles, monochromatic looks and minimalistic designs, usually with an Indian twist.
Instagram is a great place to be. If you’re ever looking for inspiration; lifestyle, food, style or pretty much anything – you’ll find it on Instagram. As a longstanding loyalist, I’ve posted my fair share of #ootds to the ‘gram. I’m one of those girls who will conjure up an occasion out of thin air just to wear that new outfit I bought.
