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.

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 🙂
As much as I would love to think that my hiatus in the blogging world was a calm before the storm, its not true. I’ve just had nothing too exciting going on in my life, inspiring enough to blog about. I have also slipped into a phase where I’m merely recycling my old (most of them very boring too 😝) clothes, so an OOTD was out of question as well.
Yesterday however was different. I woke up very early so had plenty of time at hand and hence decided to try something different to work. And so, I tried the very famous “sock bun” 😍
I probably did not do a very neat job of it, (and I guess that’s mainly because I dont use hairsprays) but was nonetheless extremely proud of it (haha that’s me!!)
I used a ring bun instead of a sock because its easier and its a cheat trick to add volume to my hair! 😁. You can find the link to the video I followed to get this hairstyle here
So people at work started calling me “the airhostess” because I completed my look with a…*wait for it*..scarf!!! The look was so airhostessey that I couldn’t but just laugh at these jests because I did look like one after all!! 😂 So dont you guys want to see how I looked from the front?
I got this scarf as a gift and I really love how versatile it is and how it instantly and completely adds so much vibrance to an otherwise dull look!
Do tell me what you guys thought about the hairstyle and the scarf!?! Have you guys scarfed up to make a boring outfit look colorful? I’m all ears ☺
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 😀
