Summer = Sunglasses



The best accessory a woman can have during summer is sunglasses. Most people tend to ignore sunglasses, but it is extremely important to wear them especially during summer. What is the importance of wearing sunglasses during summer?

1. In summer, the UV radiation is three times more than winter. UV radiation causes eye problems such as cataract, AMD. Sunglasses will protect your eyes from harmful UV rays.
2. Wearing sunglasses helps protect your eyes from wind, debris and dust.
3. If you are a contact lens user, wearing sunglasses is a must. It will help keep the lens moist by reducing the rate of evaporation of tears
4. If you suffer from frequent headaches and eyes strain, then wearing sunglasses will help reduce both by controlling the amount of light reaching the sensitive retina.

Lenskart is organising India's biggest sunglasses carnival from 28th March to 31st March with more than 5,000 sunglasses are on attractive discounts including all top brands. Perfect timing to add on to your sunglasses collection. Do not forget to check out Lenskart Sunglasses carnival!

This season, Fastrack launched a lot of funky new products right from a massive range of girls’ watches, fun helmets for both guys and girls, colourful bags and backpacks and trendy sunglasses. I think by now you know my love for Fastrack, color and prints! The moment I laid my eyes on this bag and watch, I knew it blend into my taste perfectly.

Beautifully bright and usefully spacious, the Aztec print tote delivers a burst of cheerful colour accented with a blue-coloured trim and carry handle. The bag is my select pick from Fastrack’s Aztec print collection of totes, satchels and cross body sling bags. The colourful pattern makes this bag so versatile that you can pair it many different outfits. Be it a girly dress, structures formals or weekend casuals, you can’t go wrong.

Vibrant watch is a must have statement piece and it is the perfect accessory for this spring. I absolutely love the LCD screen and the seamless, futuristic and minimalistic design.

Infallible Me!



I remember reading a quote by Gwyneth Paltrow which goes something like this “Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.” The latter part struck a chord with me. A social experiment conducted on women recently, proved that even on bad days, lipsticks can empower woman. I know you must be wondering how a simple thing of putting on lipstick can make a big difference? Well, I am one of the person who vouches that a lipstick can brighten up your day. I refuse to walk out of my house without a bright tinge on my lips which makes me feel invincible and glamorous.

Recently, L'Oreal Paris launched 15 gorgeous shades of Infallible lipstick. They generously sent me six shades of these ultimate beauty indulgences to review. To me, it is important that my lipstick last from morning coffee to evening wine and the new range of L'Oreal Paris infallible lipstick passes the test with flying colors. Not only lipstick lasts for 10 hours but also provides high definition color whilst keeping my lips moist and relaxed. I also love the glossy finish. Every morning, the lip color which transcends on my lips is defined by my mood and occasion. Check out my infallible life in association with L'Oreal Paris.

Stripes and Bling




Last weekend I managed to get some shopping done before Christmas. I needed an outfit which was comfortable and trendy to manage the weird variations in temperature (Thanks Bangalore!). Instantly, I picked the striped shirt to give it a causal twist. I think most working women face problems especially when it comes to reusing office wear. But few formal wear can be a great layering transition piece for weekend as well. I styled striped shirt with jeans and tank top. Completed the look with statement bling footwear and watch. After eternity, I managed to try out a completely different hair style. Do let me know what you think of the styling.

Speaking of shopping, I just came to know about GOSF deals and offers (The Great Online Shopping Festival) which is powered by Google. It is a three-days online shopping extravaganza which is from 10th to 12th December 2014, where you get to loot products by playing using discount vouchers. So, Santa Claus is coming to town early this Christmas. So start making your wish list and shop your heart content on GOSF which kicks off tomorrow. Also find GoIbibo coupons if you wish to travel cause you can save really good while buying online tickets in these three days!

Shoe Diaries with Clarks India




Hello Everyone! I have always been a self-confessed shoe-a-holic. When I was contacted by Clarks India to be part of their Shoe Diaries campaign, I just could not refuse. I always loved Clark shoes for their simplicity and comfort. For all those who do not know, Clarks has been making shoes since 1825. In short, Clarks has decades of experience in making comfortable shoes which are classic collector items for a women's wardrobe. Keeping in my mind my necessities and work schedule, I chose Amulet Myth shoe to style. Read on to find out, how I spend my day in Clarks shoes!

Usually my day starts with early morning blog meetings. I prefer my outfits to be smart casuals for the meetings. Therefore, I styled Clark shoes with Zara top, Van Heusen midi skirt and Zara blazer. I love the subtle mix of prints in the outfit, but I still felt it lacked a bit of color. Therefore, added color to the outfit with pink blazer and red handbag. Completed the look with a few bracelets, ring and Michael Kors watch.

Post blog meetings, I run (literally) to work to reach office on time. Since I am in client facing role, most of the time I am dressed in formals. I admit, it is literally impossible to run around in high heels every day. These shoes are a blessing! Stylish and comfortable for wearing to client meetings. I styled my Clark shoes with H&M Blazer, Sheinside lace top and Van Heusen skirt. I kept accessories to minimum and added a single ring. I love adding prints to all my outfits. Therefore, I completed the look with leopard scarf, statement sunglasses and watch. I usually prefer not to go out in the evening on weekdays. Post work, I come home and start working on blog. Every morning the cycle starts again.

Weekends are always more hectic than weekdays. Therefore, I start every Saturday morning going out for brunch to gear up. My go to outfits for weekends has always been Maxi's. I absolutely love this maxi, the feminine pink and the goth print makes it very versatile to style according to your mood swings. Channeling the rock girl in me, I styled the maxi with leather jacket and mirrored sunglasses. My Clarks shoes perfectly compliment the look. Though most people would not think about wearing ballad flats with and leather jackets, it adds the required feminine touch to keep the outfit from looking over the top.

Hope you enjoyed reading through, do let me know what you think of the styling and Share your shoe diaries with me on Twitter!
