Outfit: Silver and Turquoise Saree

Its rare that I wear saree , honestly I don't know how to drape it :( . I think I need to learn soon how to drape it , every time can't be relying on parlors, friends and family for that ...I had to attend a wedding yesterday , I decided to wear a saree .. Thanks to BFF Daman , she drapes saree really well, without her being their it would have been impossible to get dressed at 9pm when there is no other option left !

This is hoe designed the back of my blouse , after all the grace of the saree depends a lot on the blouse.

Turquoise silver mukash saree- from Chandni Chowk
Blouse- My creation :)
Clutch- Kenneth Cole 
Jewellery- my personal stuff ...

Maybelline Eye Tattoo

Finally the wait is over , Maybelline has launched the range of eye tattoo in India. I have been desperately waiting for them to launch this product in India.These are similar to Mac paint-pots but way cheaper !
The price of the product is Rs. 350 , I think its a steal at this price.Maybelline sure knows how to get smiles on the face for their target audience where every now and then you keep hearing about hiked petrol,diesel and cylinder prices.

What I liked it that it comes with a brush , which is quite useful.


And this is what I got Audacious Asphalt and Bold gold, review coming soon !

Outfit :Chantilly dress in retro style

I have a inclination for vintage wear , especially chantilly .... I thinks its looks very classy & elegant. The moment I see chantilly I go back to the golden era where ladies were dressed in gowns and lovely dresses ... The best thing about chantilly is that its complete in itself , just accessorize well and you are ready to go !
I had to attend a mehandi function on Sunday , Punjabi functions means full on rock & roll and drinks !!
Yes the essential part of punjabi wedings is drinks !! Mehandi is a very casual function where close friends and family members are seen  in attendence.I wanted to do a casual and fun look so decided to wear my chantilly dress with tights.

I like it when hubby dearest gives his opinion about my outfit and look , it was his suggestion to opt for a red lipstick with this look :) 

Wearing -

Chantilly dress- My creation :)
Tights- Snowhite
Footwear- Catwalk
Golden Clutch-Gifted my Bhabhi 
Animal print necklace & earrings- From Colaba, gift from BFF Purvi 
Broad hairband- You shine

Happy Ganesh Chaturthi

Wishing everyone a very happy Ganesh Chaturthi.Those of you who don't know about this I will brief you a bit. Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated on the occassion of birthday of Lord Ganesha, the son of Lord Shiva & Parvati.Ganesha is widely worshipped as the god of wisdom, prosperity and good fortune and traditionally invoked at the beginning of any new venture or at the start of travel.

I have made new set of friends from Mumbai , where this festival is celebrated in full swing, so I also decided to do celebration  at home as i got inspired by my bunch of girl friends.

Aloo puri, Besan Ladoo & Tomato Chutney were part of my prasad.
It took me about 2 hours to prepare it....

Besan Ladoos

My Thali had aloo sabzi, boondi raita , tomato chutney and puri :)

Pooja time :)

So how did you celebrate this festival ?
Hope you have been hogging some modaks/ladoos :)

Maybelline Jewel Pink Tourmaline Lipstick review

I am a Punjabi girl , bling is my middle name ! hahahhahaa... Ever since I heard about the new range of jewel lipsticks by Maybelline I wanted to try them and heard /read a lot about it on other fashion/makeup blogs.
Tbellhough I am not a frosted lipstick lover but still I gave it a shot !

Maybelline surely knows how to capture the attention of targr et audience , that's why they named this collection as Jewels ! A woman is always facinated towards jewels ! 

I did a lip swatch 

Price-Rs 350/-
Qty-3.9 gms

1- Attractive packaging.
3- Highly pigmented, one swipe is enough.
4- Good coverage , can stay up till 5-6 hrs.
5- These glitter does not bother, infact enhance the look.

1- Little fruity smell, but it goes off after a while.
2- May not suit all skin tones, apt for fair skin tones.

Hand Cuffed !!

Jewellery has always been the latest obsession for women , ok now they love their makeup too ! But still jewellery holds a lot of importance. Like any other girl around I am also a jewellery lover.. cuffs,bangles and bracelets are some of my favorite jewellery pcs .

Today's Look- Floral tights and grey tunic

It has been raining on and off in Delhi , the weather is very pleasant here ...Today when I got up it was raining. I love to see rain when I wake up in the morning , it kinda gives me a energy kick ! hehehee , sounds funny na ... I have always had a love & hate relationship with rains. I love it when I get a chance to enjoy it sitting at home with thn family and hate it when I have to drive in the crazy traffic , Delhi traffic gets worse during monsoon...and driving gets even more difficult ! phew.... that's about my thoughts ... everyone has a different perception about it.

Today was a relaxed day so I decided to get into my comfort zone and wear tights.
