Outfit Post: Am wearing Oxblood :D (and a hair cut update!)

Hola chicas! :D The past weekend was one of the best I have had in a long time :) Why? Am not so sure but I have a strong inkling that it was because of the fact that it was a perfect blend of shopping, updating my fashion quotient, learning to cook a new dish, Diwali cleaning, meeting close friends and getting a makeover :) I'll go about each one in detail... Lemme start with some retail healing. I absolutely abhor the phrase "retail therapy" as it has become too jaded and over-used. So much so that people going for grocery shopping also label the experience as retail therapy! No offense here but seriously any shopping or "buying" experience cannot be termed as retail therapy you know! Come on look it up...

And we know that at least us in the beauty blogging world are not depressed :) So anyways, I actually went to the mall to exchange shirt for the Pati and well I retu

Outfit Post: Subho Bijoya At Office

Subho Bijoya... Happy Dussehra :) Even though yesterday was this much celebrated festival of India, we did not have a holiday in office and to top it of, yesterday was the busiest day of my life! :( In order to keep us cheered up, our office people decided to declare the day as Traditional Day and well yup we were expected to dress up in our traditional best and come to work! ha ha ha..

What To Wear: For A Stroll In The Club Golf Course By The Sea

I love where I stay in Bombay... I stay in Colaba in South Bombay and there is no place else in the country that can match to it... Sandwiched between the Arabian Sea on one side and the best street shopping market in the city i.e. Colaba Causeway on the other, rich with heritage buildings and monuments and even cobbled stone streets in some stretches, "old town" i.e Colaba is sure a part of paradise :) *Touchwood*... The last weekend that I was in Bombay, we had a Mumbai Bloggers Meet on Saturday, which by now am sure you all know about... So I kept Sunday for my mom solely and we spent the whole day in leisure almost like we were having a best friends' day out :) Around 4:00 pm in the afternoon, my mom started craving some chaat  and we decided to go to the US Club where we could stroll along the sea and also satiate our yearning for some chatpat stuff :) So this is what I wore... Outfit Breakup 1. Top - Mango 2. Shorts - Local Boutique 3. Ballerinas
