Outfit - Black & Gold

I wear tons of black and this is actually one of my go-to outfits. I've always been fascinated by the Hamsa because not only is it a beautiful design, but also has a strong purpose. So I was delighted to find this lovely black and gold vest on Dresslink featuring it. For those of you who don't know about it, the hamsa hand is an amulet for magical protection from the envious or evil eye. The words hamsa  means "five" and refers to the digits on the hand. I teamed it with black leggings and boots from Forever 21 and completed it with a fabulous black and gold studded bag from Lavie.

Pants and Shoes - Forever 21
Bag - Lavie

Dresslink is a fab site with lots of amazing cheap clothes.

My Envy Box - January 2016

The first Envy box of 2016 arrived yesterday and I was more than happy to get a bunch of goodies in it! This month's box was a mix of skincare, beauty and fragrance so it has a little bit of everything. The best part is that it came with 2 full sized products! 

To start with skin care, Skin Yoga Oats and Roses Face wash is a blend of oats and rose petals which promises to unclog facial pores. While oats help by cleansing the skin and removing dirt from the core, the rose petal on the other hand tones the skin and prepares it for the rest of the day. I haven't tried it yet but have read good reviews. This is great for someone who wants to steer clear from soap based and chemical laden face washes. 

The O3+ Radiant Whitening Day Cream SPF 30 offers wide spectrum protection to the skin barrier defense system while providing instant whitening and brightening effect. I've used their brightening face mask from the same range which came in last month's Envy Box and it's really great, so I'm sure this one is not going to disappoint either. 

Mantra Kokkum Butter and Pistachio Winter Care Lotion is perfect for winter as this is the time when skin get's really dry. This moisturizer comes with with time-tested Kokkum Butter and Pistachio blended with nourishing Almond Oil to make skin smoother and younger looking. This is a full sized product (100ml) so it will last for a couple of weeks at least!

My Envy Box gives out a lot of Calvin Klein perfume samples, but I'm not complaining as most of their fragrances are really nice! This month's was Eternity Now. I haven't smelled it yet but have stashed it in my wallet where all my perfume samples go. Saving the best for last, is the Loreal Glam Shine Balmy Gloss in Lychee Lust which again, is a full sized product. This sheer pink balm is nice and moisturizing and I quite like it. 

Overall, I'm pretty happy with the box as I will be using all of the products that came in it. For those of you who don't know about it, My Envy Box is a subscription service which brings you a bunch of sample beauty products (typically 2ml-10ml) by luxury and prestige brands every month at Rs 850. If you like the samples, you can buy the full sized product from their site. I've been getting this box for exactly 2 years now and always recommend it to my readers, family and friends! It's totally worth it! Check out their site and subscribe to this service here

Editorial - Like A Dream

This was a very exciting project for me as we tried composite photography and the results are spectacular. Looks like I was in a dream, doesn't it? These lovely pictures were a result of a technique where the final picture has added elements from some other images, thus changing the the original. These were shot by Rohan Joshi, who is a very talented photographer from Pune. Check out more of his work here

Forever 21 & Target Shopping Guide

It's no secret that Forever 21 and Target are a shopping lover's dream come true so I've come up with a nifty shopping guide with some tips to hep you get the most out of shopping at these two stores. 


Been a while since I was 21 but that doesn't stop me from shopping at Forever 21 on a fairly regular basis. The reason? Fast fashion and items so cheap, that you don't have to think twice before purchasing. However, even though I love shopping there, I never walk out with more than 3 items every time I go. So here's when I list out a few points you must consider while shopping at Forever 21 - 

1) Quality over Quantity - F21’s cotton and rayon pieces fade and pill quickly in the wash, which becomes especially obvious on articles of clothing that have been screened in the contrasting colors used in patterns. It’s better to stick with polyester and viscose, which hold dye better and don’t pill.

2) Go for the basics - F21 is a great place to score basic tees, pants, vests and leggings because of their numerous styles, colors and use-and-throw prices. However, steer clear from statement pieces especially if you stay in a small city because chances are, whether you're in college or at a bar, there'll be another girl wearing the same dress as you.  If you really want to buy a statement piece, then buy it, but don't wear it out when it's still in stores. Give it a couple of months and then wear it out. This backfires too by the way. A notable example of this is when I was going out partying with a friend who was wearing a printed jumpsuit she had just bought from there the previous day. Two weeks later, I went out with another friend who was wearing the same jumpsuit (and doesn't know the other girl) And she got it from Forever 21 in a different city over 3 months ago. Now imagine if both girls went out with me on the same day and both wore that jumpsuit. 

3) Awesome Outerwear - Forever 21 is a great place for on trendy outerwear at low prices. They have amazing coats, jackets and blazers in lots of styles, pattern and colors. Pick them up during sales for good deals. I just picked up a really cute sweater during Christmas break and I got it at almost half price. 

4) Love 21 - Love 21 is a contemporary line still focused on trends, but with more attention to detail, trims, fabrics and overall a more sophisticated feel.  What do I mean?  Well color blocking will be less severe, pops of neon go back to neutrals as opposed to being mixed in loud, wild prints.  The fabrics are a little less cheap looking.  

5) Timing - Forever 21 stores are pretty crowded during weekends and especially on evenings. Unless you like long waiting lines to try clothes out, go to F21 during the morning/afternoon on any weekday. If you have office or college in the day, then go on a monday evening for a peaceful shopping experience.


This affordable department store is every shopper's wonderland because you get everything you need under one roof. If done right, Target is a convenient place you can pick up some smart style picks at affordable prices.  Thanks to their low-priced collections from high-end designers like Missoni, Neiman Marcus, Zac Posen, Jason Wu and more along with a huge range of affordable daily wear, women can't get enough of Target. Use this guide to find items that balance modern style, quality, and price -

1) Take advantage of the mark down schedule -  
Monday: Electronics, Accessories, Kids Clothing, Books, Baby, and Stationery
Tuesday: Domestics, Women’s Clothing, Pets and, Market food items
Wednesday: Men’s Clothing, Health and Beauty, Diapers, Lawn/Garden items, and Furniture
Thursday: Housewares, Lingerie, Shoes, Toys, Sporting Goods, Decor and Luggage
Friday: Auto, Cosmetics, Hardware, and Jewelry

2. Coupons - Target is big on coupons. The Target app has mobile coupons” which gives you ongoing coupons with text message reminders when your coupons are about to expire. If you shop at Target often, consider getting the Target Red Card. You will get 5% off the day you sign up for the card and every day that you use it. You will also get 30 extra days for returns and free shipping on Target’s website. You have the option of getting a debit or credit card, so choose which one works best for you. Additionally, check out Discontrue for more awesome Target coupons.

3. Fashion Union - This newly-introduced line is more trend-focused than Mossimo or Xhilaration. It's made for juniors, so unfortunately the sizes aren't for everyone, but if you're in the market for ridiculously affordable swimwear, button front skirts and chic dresses, this is your jam.

So these were my tips to help you with shopping at Forever 21 and Target. I hope you find them as  helpful as I do!

Asus Zenpad 8 - Geek Meets Chic

Last year was a serious roller coaster of ups and downs in my life but I guess I was a good girl because Santa got me this shiny new gadget so here is the review! I've been using the Asus Zenpad 8 (Z380KL) for over two weeks now and I absolutely love it. This high resolution 8 inch tablet has a premium design and boasts of high specifications. I took all these pictures indoors at night with a camera phone just to show you how vibrant the screen is. 

To start with appearance, the ZenPad 8 is very thin and noticeably light (350g) with ergonomic rounded edges to provide a better grip, making it comfortable for usage and traveling. It has an attractive chrome trim around the front while the back has an elegant embossed leather pattern which makes it look luxurious and stylish. Thanks to its interchangeable back covers, it's perfect for the fashionable tech girl on the go because you can change its colors to match your outfit! Choices include Black, White and Aurora Metallic. It's also fashion blogger friendly because it easily fits into your bag thanks to its size.

The sharp and clear display is perfect to browse through websites
The display is absolutely amazing! I could tell because when I go through We Heart It on the tab and check out the same image on my phone (OnePlus One) it falls flat comparatively! Images are vibrant with rich details and vivid colors on the Zenpad 8. The device has a 76.5% view area with ASUS Tru2Life technology which delivers incredibly realistic images with accurate contrast, sharpness, and detail. It also adjusts brightness to fit different lighting conditions, providing a clearer and more vivid outdoor viewing experience in bright sunlight. 

The Zenpad 8 has lots of beautiful themes to personalize your gadget
The device features two PixelMaster cameras. It has an 8 megapixel auto focus camera on the rear without flash and a 2 megapixel camera on the front. I haven't really taken many pictures with it but have noticed that it has zero shutter lag and manual mode support. The camera also has fun features like time lapse, low light mode, Slow motion, HDR, beautification and selfie panorama. 

I can blog on the go thanks to the Asus Zenpad 8
The has a 4000 mAh non-removable battery. Backup is really impressive because even after playing games non stop for a couple of hours ( I normally play video games but have lately been hooked on to silly match 3 games on the tab) it just drops by a bit. You can expect about 7 to 11 hours of continuous moderate to heavy usage on a single charge.

As you can see, I clearly spend a lot of time playing silly match 3 games on the tab

Audio Cover
The Audio Cover makes multimedia viewing an awesome experience on the tab as it's built-in DTS technology. The Audio cover comes with built in speaker and battery and is flip type cover that acts as a case and converts the tab into a portable high quality entertainment device. With such sound, you can can enjoy my music, TV shows and movies anywhere. It has 6 hours of battery life and charges as you charge the tablet. The leather exterior of the cover give the tablet a sophisticated look and feel. The case also allows the pad to stand neatly in a landscape mode for watching movies. It can be bought separately and is totally worth investing because of its dual purpose of a speaker and protection.

Listening to Hotline Bling is even better thanks to the audio cover
The tablet comes with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage which makes it one of the top-specification tablet in this range. The device comes with 4G network compatibility. It also includes standard features like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, 4000mAh battery, 8 MP Primary camera + 2 MP Front camera and expandable storage up to 128GB.

Bunny 3 Color Gray Review | Klenspop

Since I usually always go for brown lenses, I went gray for a change! And I love the results. These lenses have a dark gray color which blends in with my dark eyes very well and makes my eyes pop with a subtle yet noticeable difference which makes these lenses great for daily wear and for day time wear as well. The design imitates a natural iris with these colors and gives me a twinkle in my eyes.

I got these lenses from Klenspop, a Korean Circle lens store which makes a wide range of circle lenses in many colors. When I opened the package, I was pleasantly surprised to find a box which has detailed instructions with images on how to wear your lenses. This is particularly useful to beginners. 

When I opened the box, I was even more pleased to see, that besides the usual vials and lens case, they were thoughtful enough to include a pair of plastic tweezers to get the lenses out of the glass bottles. If you have worn colored lenses before, you will know what a task it is without tweezers. 

I love the design seriously as it is gray but yet doesn't look too striking or artificial and goes quite decently with my complexion. I've read lots of reviews of these lenses stating they are very comfortable but unfortunately they did not suit me as my eyes are very dry so I can't wear them for more than 2-3 hours as my eyes burn. However, if you don't have a dry eye problem, these lens are perfect if you're looking for a beautiful color with a natural look. 

Here's what my natural eye color is -

And here I am with the lenses -

Diameter: 14.5mm
Water Content: 38%
Base Curve: 8.6mm
Life Span: 1 year disposal

Outfit - Hipster Girl

Happy New Year everyone! I just realized that I hadn't done a single outfit posts last month so here goes! This hipster camper look is perfect for a music festival (actually I think half my wardrobe is perfect for a music festival). Since I'm addicted to fringe, I had to pick up these gorgeous suede shorts when I saw them at Forever 21. I teamed them with a simple muscle tee with a funky print and wedge boots. Topped it with a cute flower crown and metallic tattoos from Accessorize. And the extra weight is courtesy the fact that it's become kinda cold (finally) and I keep eating ALL the time!
