The World Cup, the offside, and our favourite treat: Shopping!

The Summer Sale has officially started. It is Shopping time but…Are you all watching the world cup?

We still have quite a while to go, and we are already seeing which teams are not making it to the next stage, England and Spain among others. In every match, though, there is a repetitive pattern, players who want to score but have been caught in Offside. Just like many girls, I didn’t understand what was the Offside before.

This ingenious way of understanding what an offside will certainly help :)

Just imagine:

- You and your friend are out shopping, you try a few things, decide what you want and make your way to the counter.

- There is a queue so you have to wait. The queue starts to move and soon there is only one person ahead of you, but you see a super cute handbag and go to check it out, leaving your friend in the queue.

- While you are thinking whether to take the handbag, the person ahead of your friend in the queue has finished paying and is about to leave, which would leave your friend right in front of the cashier.

At this point, 2 scenarios are likely:

1) If you manage to pass the handbag to your friend before the person ahead leaves, there is no problem. Life is good!

2) But, if you pass the handbag to your friend after the person ahead has left, the rest of the people in queue could get angry, leaving you to join the queue once again right at the back.

If you make it at Scenario 1, as I said Life is good…you get the handbag!

Easy, right? We apply this concept to football and understand what the Offside is… All in all, due to our love of shopping! :)

Espadrilles: The ultimate souvenir for SS14

Trend alert:

Espadrilles: The ultimate souvenir for Spring/Summer

Switching from the autumn wardrobe to the Spring/Summer, this season has something else to offer. It is not astonishing to know that shoes are a woman’s best friend, and as our 60s queen Marilyn Monroe said…

“Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world” – Marilyn Monroe

While a woman’s passion is in the glory and possession for shoes, a new lead has enter the game called espadrille.

This high end and high street beauty is the latest trend of SS14 and many celebrities have been spotted wearing them. The minimal comfy casual espadrilles have not only impressed the runway but in addition, with its look and versatile characteristic fit in, the high street world too.

We adore how beautiful these jute rope weaved espadrilles become a luxury in style. Comfy, casual, jute slip-ons espadrilles are not only flat but high heeled too. :)

The limitation doesn’t vary for espadrille… Chanel, Valentino, Stella McCartney, Dolce and Gabbana Christian Louboutin, Marc Jacobs are among the famous designers who have come up with various designs and prints for the espadrille. Floral, colour blocking, white canvas, lace, stripes, sequin, leopard, nautical, tie and dye. The journey has just started.

Hitting every corner and street of London and Europe, Espadrilles adds the brownie point in the SS14 style statement.

A perfect way to welcome summer, for casual day time to night time look, it transforms the whole attire with its minimal glance.

Style tip: team up with roll sleeve boyfriend tee and baggy jeans, add a brown belt to finish the look and let you locks flow in the sky. Hello summer!

Aldo A-List Event

#AldoAList Event

Leather sheen, patent finish, embossed texture, floral party, colour blocking, stripes mania, monochrome madness, glitterati and coral power. All of everything in one roof. :) Yes the exclusive SS14 range of ALDO has it all.

The A-list event of ALDO was an eye opener; it was enthralling to see the SS14 range of bags, shoes and accessories.

The fun factor of the event was the decor and at the same time being part of the event, people were enjoying the selfie attention board, food, the champagne was flowing and strawberries was just like the icing on the cake. I was in my world and enjoying every bit of the event.

It was amazing to see how magnificently designers have worked on this new trend. The accessories on display and every pair of shoes were narrating a success story.

My favourite piece of an item was embellished gold and silver detail clutch bags. A perfect piece for evening dinner and cocktail nights to embrace the attire. The vibrant shades of sunglasses are just way too perfect to lift up the mood of any occasion and events, whether it’s a beach party, fashion events or casual formal days. Cat eye, aviators and big shades…the variety is a long list.

My eyes got stuck on the beautiful necklaces and earrings sets. With the right aesthetic and colour combination, the jewellery bejewelled its presence. WOW!

Always being a huge fan of ALDO, it was a heart warming experience to meet the staff and people behind the success.

Style tip: The drama can be added by just combining the ALDO embossed texture heels with a fitted LBD.

Enjoy the summer and indulge yourself with the luxury of ALDO SS14 collection.

Special thanks to the ALDO manager Dena (ALDO Highcross Leicester)

L’Occitane – Botanical Paradise

L’Occitane – Botanical Paradise

Rose petal, silky smooth, satin finish, Shea butter fineness, velvet touch, and a radiant texture :). Who doesn’t imagine a dream come true picture perfect skin.??

Well, the story starts here…

I was recently invited in a L’Occitane special brand event. My first impressions, I can proudly say it was one of the best customer service I received. It’s not only the customer service, the people in the store genuinely care and what amazed me is how uniquely L’Occitane have tailored skincare for every individual. While going through their products, chatting with people about the various skincare brands and skin problems, I realised that a race of too many skincare companies has been going on from a long time. Nowadays it literally feels like a “fish market” meeting the beauty industry.

With above everything and clearing the entire chemical aside, the French brand L’Occitane has proven its point with natural beauty products. It’s surprising to see so many natural ingredients magnificently contained in the products. It starts with cherry blossom, pony, lavender, menthe, rose, Shea butter, organic angelica, and verbena. The secret behind L’Occitane natural beauty is the 150 plants used in their formula and each has a specification of illustration and scientific name. Remember the story of Cleopatra and how beautiful she was in those times, when there was no biased-ness towards beauty products. She was completely evolved with natural beauty. And this brand reminds me of her, how one can get a beautiful no chemical originality in the skin. The French brand also did a complete justice to capture the entire segment whether it is hair care, home, skincare, men skincare, and scented candles.

With all my pleasure and constant usage of the product, I found the best 5 magical beauty products of L’Occitane

The best part is, the lack of worries to get any kind of a reaction, it’s totally natural! woahaa :) Not only it smoothens the texture of the skin, it tones, firms and brightens the skin tone. The difference is visible from day 1. I have sincerely loved this product. It comes in a beautiful packaging. It’s like touching a water molecule gel.

Shea butter Hand cream: Velvet is the first word comes to my mind, when I think about this product. An amazing hand cream and a correct value for money. It’s like the “Rolls Royce” of hand creams. It doesn’t only make your hands feel smooth, but also gives a hydration to your hands. Featuring 20 percent Shea butter in it, it works like a magic wand on your skin. Honey and almonds help and heal the dry and dehydrated hands. Whereas vitamin E nourishes the hands with its benefits.

“One cream sold in every 3 seconds” loving it since I tried it.

A Pleasant Surprise!

The day was going very busy as usual and I just sat to have my green tea, thinking about new ideas, and inspiration for the collection of ss14. After juggling in my thoughts and my so called lost world, suddenly, someone told me there is a parcel waiting downstairs for me. I went down to see, surprised, having remembered that I haven’t done any online shopping after the holidays. The moment I saw the parcel, it instantly lifted up my mood. A small gift set from none other than my all time favourite handmade cosmetic brand Lush was waiting for me, what a pleasant surprise! It was a beautiful box covered in a gift wrap and a yellow ribbon was just like icing on a cake! There was a letter inside it, ‘congratulations winning the shinny happy people gift set’. Without looking here and there, I started opening the things inside the box and taking a nice feel by it. It reminded me of my childhood days, how I used to get nicely dressed in my pink frock and just wait for the gifts, especially Barbie dolls, on my birthday’s. Those were the days.

There was a shower gel and soaps inside the box. After getting this amazing gift from Lush, I just couldn’t wait to finish my day and was enthusiastically looking forward for a nice evening pampering session. So yes, I delighted myself with the happy hippy shower gel, a mellow yellow gel gave me an instant boost and the grapefruit inside in it made me feel awake..lol then I cleansed with the body buffering soap, it felt like I am in wonderland. Later I used this amazingly awesome lemon and honey mixed yellow soap. Whatever tiredness I had just literally went away guys. It was so refreshing and fresh. IT WAS A WOW FEELING. I was waiting to have a relaxing evening like this from a long time. It all happens because of LUSH. My heartiest thanks to Elizabeth and the Lush team for making my day and evening so special. I definitely recommend the use of these products for a feeling refreshed pampering session after a hard working day.
