I have had quite a good last week and I thought I should share all that fun with you guys. Nothing much yet fashion or clothes wise because I’m trying to lie low as I’ve been spending way too much the past few months. So its the other things like these:
I have seriously started becoming pretty good at this stuff to be honest. From not even being able to do a simple braid I’ve started getting all inventive-y. Check out muh mane yo! 😎😂
This is the cool hairstyle to try especially when your hair is still slightly damp and you have to rush for work. Side partition, take a bunch on either side, twist-twist-twist, secure in the centre with hairpins. Voila! Done!
This is the side french braid and I got the inspiration to try out this braid from pinterest. Its the simple case of doing a normal french braid but instead of starting in the Centre, start at one end and work your way through to the other end.
Check out the DIY here!
Poster Birthday Gifts
Two friends celebrated their birthdays the past week and I gifted them these cool posters I made out of canvas and got them framed. They are great gifts because they are personalized, handmade, and easy to make.
Kurti and Harem Pant (trend I tried!)
In India, a short shirt with some traditional embroidery or motif work done on it is called a kurti and I have been wearing this one for a while now with boring old blue jeans. It was only recently that I realized the red delicate embroidery on its neckline and sleeves lends itself so beautifully to be teamed with red harem pants. So I tried it and it was a real hit at work 😍
I also found the right pair of footwear with the same combination of colors so all-in-all I was thrilled with the look 🙂
That’s all from me folks. Enjoy your week ahead. Plan well and get lots of stuff done this week 🙂
Roll my hair I meant. Bwahaha..!
So the past week was very mane-oriented for me and I tried these two hairstyles to work. 🙂
A french knot looks deceptively easy. The toughest part of it is not the hairstyle itself but how tightly you secure it with bun pins.! Its a smart updo which is a good idea for work and occasions alike.
It simply is a case of bunching your hair up like you are about to tie it up into a ponytail and start rolling it down neatly and when you reach the nape of your neck, stop. The balance hair should be doubled up and tucked neatly into the roll you just created. Secure tightly with le bun pins 😛
The second hairstyle is a fishtail. Its so easy but so time consuming, its not even funny. I found it hard to keep my hand raised for so long so I asked my sister to do this hairstyle on me and so she did and she did well too didn’t she? 😀
A normal fishtail starts at the nape of the neck which I didn’t quite like because I like my hair to be tight right from the top so we tried this slight variation of the fishtail – a French braid style fishtail. Find the link to this tutorial here!
Hope you liked the two hairstyles. Do try them and tell me how it went 😀
An outfit of the day post after really long!
Wore pastel over pastel over pastel to work today (that would be my top, trouser and shoes 😛 ) I simply love this simple boat neck top with delicate bead work all around its collar and sleeves. Because being sober and classy is just not in my blood I HAD to add some color to the outfit so I added this pretty bead necklace whose color was an darker shade of the lavendar of the top.
Yes, yes, when I smile…I SMILEEE. Hahaha!
While I personally thought my beads pretty much rocked the scene, some people *cough cough sister cough* felt the beads spoilt the whole look. Hellooo look how dull it looks without the necklace
What do you guys think of the look and about adding that sudden pop of color to be otherwise sober and sophisticated corporate attire?
I’ve been trying to nail this french plait or braid for a long time now. Sadly my almost non existent, wispy hair never allowed me to get the knack right. However, MUHAHA, after much toil I finally got a decent French braid done today. Yayy me. And trust me when I say this, if I can do it, you can surely surely do it too! Attaching a picture of the done braid now 😀 (full on boasting mode! 😛 )
Hope you are able to clearly see this picture. Whadja think? 😀
And while we are at it, I thought why not do an OOTD too because today I had dressed up well too! 😉
A lime yellow red and green salwar kameez (this is a traditional and very comfortable Indian three piece attire which fortunately gets classified as formal office wear by most companies in India). These salwar kameez are my go-to attire when
1. I’m not in a mood to work and I look for some sort of motivation in going to work by dressing up well (yup. Lol!) or,
2. I have a function or a wedding to attend directly from work.
Today however, the former was the reason for this grandeur. Me and my mid-week crisis. Lol!
So let me complete my OOTD. I finished the look with simple eye make up and a grand pair of earrings I bought in Mumbai. 🙂
What do you guys think? Do tell me 😀
