New Glasses From GlassesShop.com

If there's one thing I cannot live without it's my glasses! With a decently high power of  -3.75, you can safely say that I have terrible vision and for over a decade I wear glasses when I'm at home and work. I've always loved black frames and the cat eye shape so was delighted to find this awesome pair at Glassesshop.com, a US based online store that sells prescription eyeglasses and prescription sunglasses at fantastic prices and lightning fast shipping! The site has a lot of chic and trendy frames in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors and they also offer good discounts with various payment methods to make shopping for glasses hassle free.

My Envy Box x Wed Me Good

Last month's Envy Box was a wedding special box in collaboration with Wed Me Good, a  website/app which focuses on all your wedding related needs right from outfits, venues, photographers and much more. The bright pink box was decorated with a orange motif and came with some nice beauty products but unfortunately some samples were too small and most of the products were from Indian companies. 


The box came with a cute origami inspired card by Wed Me Good which had a checklist of things for a bride to do before the big day. I actually checked out Wed Me Good's site and was really impressed with the way it's organized and how helpful it is for a bride to be. And even though I have no plans or (love) interest to get married anytime in the near future, I actually spent a lot of time on the site checking out bridal outfits. 




The first full sized product in the box is the SkinYoga Marigold Foot Soak. I haven't tried it yet but I like the concept as foot soaks aren't easily available here in India. The marigold flower works as an excellent coolant to bring down body heat and soothes and de-tans sun burnt feet. The sea salt relaxes tired muscles and removes dirt while coconut reveals softer, moisturized and well-nourished feet.


The second full sized product in the box is the Gulare Glow Girl Shimmering Dry Oil which a is lightweight and moisturizing vanilla scented oil that gives your skin a bronzed look with a hint of shimmer. I quite like this product and would love to use it on a beach holiday. 


It also had a tiny sample of Kerastase Fragrance Oil which soothes the scalp, acts as leave in conditioner and gives hair a beautiful shine and fragrance. I haven't tried this one yet though. And lastly, there were two samples from Kama Ayurveda, one hand cream and the other is the Kumkumadi face scrub. Both products are really nice but I just wish they were slightly bigger in size. 


Overall a decent box and now I look forward to seeing what they have in store for us in August for the rainy season special 'Monsoon Affair' box! For those of you who aren't aware of this, My Envy Box is a subscription based beauty box which sends out five to six luxury beauty, hair and fragrance samples (and full sized products too) each month at a reasonable Rs 850 per month. I have been getting these for the past 2 years and absolutely love it. So subscribe, check out their website here.

Retro Style Guide


Even though we’ve stepped into the 21st century where style is all about tank tops in light, pastel shades, super slim jeans, bodycon skirts and dresses, not every woman loves to dress that way. Retro elements like polka dots, frills and high waist pants have made their way into modern wardrobes nowadays and this style is frequently seen on celebrities like Dita Von Teese, Taylor Swift and Lana Del Rey. That’s retro fashion in a nutshell – something that never goes out of style as it combines a touch of individuality with an element of elegance and old world charm. If you love retro fashion, make sure to check out Abof Online Shopping Coupons to get the best deals on vintage fashion. 


Dress Like The Icons
The elegant retro vibe that Audrey Hepburn exuded or the classic diva look sported by the ultra feminine Greta Garbo have charmed may girls till date. If you want to dress like them remember that classic style outfits paired with classy accessories can never go wrong. Whether it’s an A-line long dress or a puff sleeve dresses with uniform floral prints, a retro outfit always looks cute, sophisticated and feminine. 


Fashionable retro dresses to count on
Retro dresses available today aren’t exactly the same as they used to be in their actual times. However, they carry an essence of the retro cuts, patterns and designs and are blended with new age fashion aesthetics to make them look more appealing. For instance, dresses with ribbons and frills  would form the quintessential retro look and the same elements are incorporated into outfits nowadays with a modernized look. Gingham prints and polka dots are an example of retro prints which are back in style every few seasons. In terms of accessories, hair bands and head bands have been popular among lots of girls for decades now. 


Even when it comes to pop culture, how can we forget Blair Waldorf whose wardrobe was the perfect blend of preppy and retro fashion. Even if you see the cast of Scream Queen, most clothes have a retro and vintage style and this stands true especially for Emma Robert's character Chanel. As you can see from her styling in the show, vintage style is not just about dresses. You have scope to mix and match clothing and blend retro style with modern pieces for a look that's urban yet vintage chic. For instance, bell bottoms might seemingly look out of place today but flared jeans with boot cut leg would look perfect when teamed with a polka dotted top or a checked shirt. Think of the girls in Guess ads, they always have that retro vibe to them. Women that have a sporty sense of style can also pair it up with a plain tank top and a classic Adidas jacket to add a touch of retro style to their look.

Do you like retro fashion or prefer modern style? I have a weakness for 70s style looks. Let me know in your comments below.

Hobbies For The Lazy

There are times in life when really want to take some time off without venturing outside or meeting up any of friends for a while. This has been happening to me lately thanks to the cold and gloomy weather and I've been a total slob this entire weekend, sitting in one spot on my bed. That's when I thought of hobbies for when you feel lazy (or you're just generally lazy) so here are some hobbies you can take up without literally getting that bum off the sofa -

Play an instrument


Music is an instant mood lifter so pick up an instrument of your choice and try learning how to play it. I always wanted to learn how to play the guitar, but never made an effort because I'm a leftie and would always get confused but I did learn how to play the keyboard. The best part is you can just sit back on the sofa and play along without ever breaking a sweat. There are a lot of online classes and videos you could refer to teach yourself. 

Knit a sweater


You think knitting wool is too old school? Absolutely not. As many would suggest, knitting is extremely relaxing. You could knit while you watch your favorite series and even make a scarf or a ugly sweater for someone if you're really bad at it! Alternatively, you could learn stitching and it's always awesome to make you own clothes!

 Start a blog


Well you can see how that worked out for me :) Penning down your thoughts can be an absolutely delightful hobby. Just lay back on the sofa and start writing your everyday stories, as you would talk about them to someone you know. Once you develop a hang of it, start your own blog and keep writing. You might even end up having a ton of people following you before you even know it. 

Play Games online



There are numerous online gaming options that are quite entertaining and you can literally play them without even stepping a foot out of sofa! I'm guilty of being hooked on to a silly match 3 game called Monster Buster and am totally addicted to it. You could even experience the thrill of simultaneously winning some real cash prizes with free bingo games if you are playing on the right sites.

 Get fit



Yep. Believe it or not, you can use your sofa to do some real good work outs, proving those wrong who point fingers at people who never leave the sofa. You can do pretty much exercise your full body with stretches, press-ups, push-ups squats, tricep dips and more. 

Imagine, the list of things you could actually do without moving an inch from the sofa! Could think of few more easy yet interesting ones? Let me know in your comments below.

Decoding My Style

You never find me wearing very bright or girly outfits but I definitely favor certain color combinations which dominate my wardrobe and dressing style! I love shopping from export surplus stores as they stock a lot of international brands that aren’t present in India. I also buy most of my basic separates from  Forever 21 because they are stylish and reasonable. Here are some looks that define the way I dress -


Black and White with Red lips

I am madly in love with black and white and absolutely love wearing white tops with black bottoms. I like to add in a dash of color to the outfit with red lipstick.


Dark Florals

Even though I rarely wear prints, I have a weakness for floral print against a black background. I love this cute dress because it's perfect for summer but I like to wear it with boots instead of heels.

 
 Neutrals

When I'm not wearing black, I'm usually wearing beige, pale pink, nude or other neutral shades like this skirt and top combo.


All Black 

I wear a lot of all black outfits and have lots of black dresses. To make the look pop, I like to add a touch of gold whenever possible as I have below with this chic gold belt.


Although I don’t wear dresses on a very regular basis, I buy most of my one piece dresses online 
to find the most unique and off beat pieces.

Spa Review - Orrganic Elemennt

Orrganic Element is a brand new spa in the bustling lane 6 in Koregaon Park. What makes it stand out from the hordes of spas in the area is everything here is completely natural and organic. This spalon offers products and treatments that are created using plant derivatives without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or other artificial chemicals. All their spa treatments are enhanced by the use of non-toxic polishes, organic scrubs, organic lotions, and essential oils.  They a wide range of body massages, foot massages, head massages, pedicures, manicures and facials with healing techniques and result oriented treatments which uplift your senses and revitalize your body. 


This spa was founded by Kaveeta Pol who has been in the industry for almost a decade and wanted to break away from the rampant use of chemical filled products. Not only are the products used organic, but even the decor has been made with biodegradable materials and even the utensils used here are made of copper which is known to be beneficial for health. Being a staunch vegetarian and an avid animal lover, Kaveeta launched the spa to create awareness about animal cruelty thus none of the products used here are tested on animals and they do not use any animal by products either. 


I tried out some therapies at the spa recently and was very pleased with their services. I went for the  Top to Toe package which begins with a head massage followed with an aromatherapy treatment and a organic body scrub. My spa therapist Sonam greeted me with a warm smile and impressed me with her sweet nature and fantastic masseuse skills. The head massage was incredibly relaxing and literally had me feeling light headed. I think I really need to indulge in these more often as I have long hair and a good head massage is good for hair growth too. Moving on to the aromatherapy massage, she used organic coconut oil mixed with aroma oils for a calming aroma combined with the benefit of coconut oil which is nourishing, yet not too greasy or thick. The massage was so good that I almost fell asleep 3 times during the course, which is proof of how relaxed I felt. The massage was followed by a body scrub made of raw sugarcane. I loved the texture as it was not very harsh, yet once I had a shower, I could feel the difference in my skin as it felt very smooth, renewed and revitalized even one day later. 


Overall, I had a fantastic experience at Orrganic Elemennt and if you're looking for some pampering, I totally recommend you to visit this spa! You definitely won't be disappointed!

Bangkok Shopping Guide

Whenever you hear Bangkok, the first thing that comes to every woman's mind is shopping! From glistening air-conditioned malls to busting street markets, Bangkok offers every shopaholic more bang for their baht. If you're planning to go to Thailand, make sure you reserve 2-3 days (and a spare suitcase) for all your shopping. Its no secret that shopping is an integral contributor to Bangkok tourism. This posts lists malls that stock Thai apparel so I'm not including malls which have international brand stores like Forever 21 or Zara as those chains are present in all major countries and keep the same kind of stock everywhere. 

Platinum Mall


Platinum Fashion Mall is the largest and most famous wholesale shopping destination in Bangkok. There are hundreds of stores selling women's fashion and super cheap prices. Being a wholesale mall, you get better deals if you buy larger quantities. However, note that there are no changing rooms here but they provide measuring you with tapes. You can also check with the shop owners if an exchange is possible in case what you buy doesn't fit you. Many stores accept only cash so make sure you get your foreign exchange sorted in advance. 

Union Mall


Union Mall is similar to Platinum Mall, but  is more spacious and well organized. It's a popular spot for hangout for Thai college girls because it's designs are different compared to Platinum and it's less crowded. Items are slightly more expensive but their quality speaks for itself. There are many dressing rooms unlike Platinum and MBK so you can try out everything before you buy it.

Chatuchak Weekend Market



Chatuchak Weekend Market is also known as Jatujak or JJ Market, and it is the largest market in Thailand.  The market has more than 5000 stalls selling a wide array of products including clothing for men and women, accessories, footwear, household items, handicrafts and much more. It is hot here so do wear light clothing. If you are able to conquer the heat here, I’m sure you will be able to get a lot of stuff. The Chatuchak is a tourist attraction in itself, with over 200 000 people visiting each day! It is popular among both local Thais, foreigners living in Bangkok and tourists.

MBK Shopping Centre

MahBoonKrong or MBK, is one of the oldest and best known shopping malls in Bangkok. MBK Center is Bangkok's most legendary shopping mall, popular with both tourists and locals, and busy with shoppers every day. There are eight floors packed with 2,000 shops that sell everything from clothing, fashion accessories, handbags, leather products and luggage to furniture, mobile phones, electric appliances, cameras, stationery and DVDs. 

Siam Square

Popular with young, funky looking Thais, Siam Square is known for its youthful and trendy selection of fashion items. This is where you can find the coolest shops and indie boutiques that stock local designer labels as well as clothes, accessories, shoes, electronics and beauty products. The square consists of a number of small, indoor shopping centres and markets, separated by high streets and little boutique shops outdoors. Unlike Platinum Fashion Mall, the material and design of the apparels here are of higher quality and are usually available in limited pieces

Terminal 21


Terminal 21 is an upmarket shopping mall located next to Asok BTS Station. This mall has a unique airport theme where each floor of the mall is based on the theme of well-known cities like London, Rome, Paris, Tokyo and Istanbul. Both tourists and locals flock to this mall for its wide variety of unique stores & local designer apparel.
