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.
I have been a skinny jeans addict my whole life. Being on the petite side, skinny jeans were my go-to for literally everything, as it made me look more toned (without working out, so win-win), and fit like a dream.
I flirted with the idea of a different fit every time I went shopping, trying everything from a flare to a boyfriend to a straight cut pair (my least favourite).
Who is excited to go back to work? At the office we mean! Are you ready to ditch the ‘all-day pjs persona’ and wear actual going-out clothes? I feel like I have forgotten how to wear heels, or even just regular outside flats for that matter. Do you remember the everyday morning routine where you stood in front of your cupboard,
The Devil Wears Prada – the Holy Grail of fashion movies. Even though the movie released 14 years ago (14 years – that’s insane), the impact it has had on every person whether in the fashion industry or not is incalculable. The combination of the fashion, which was somehow trendy and classic at the same time with the powerhouse performances of Meryl Streep,
There are a lot of things I like posting on Instagram, but I feel like my most favourite thing to do is hair. I’ve grown up hating the texture of my hair and spent a large portion of my life trying to control it. My locks have a mind of their own when they’re not being tamed and it’s been my mission to keep it looking as sane as possible.
When was the last time you shopped a ‘non-essential’ item? My last fashion purchase was in January 2020. Yes, digest that! As we slowly creep out of the isolation slumber we have been in for the last three months, I can’t help but wonder, what are people shopping for right now?
If I had to make a list of things that I need and well,
Sometimes I feel like I’m wearing a uniform. White tee, jeans, flats and an oversized tote. It’s a combination I’ve worn countless number of times but somehow it manages to look different – every. single. time. The concept was somehow seeded when I was a teenager. “Mom! I have no clothes, what do I wear?” Which prompted my mother to tell me to look harder,
