Bangalore shares it’s love for Music and Scotch|#LoveScotch Event with Anushka Manchanda & Nakul Shenoy

Hello everyone,

I’m sure most of you are watching the nail biting IPL final between RCB and SRH when I’m writing this post, but I had to share with you all the fun Hitesh from team #thattrirpeurbanlife had at the #LoveScotch event this Friday along with the sensational singer, actor Anushka Manchanda and the much sought after mind reader Nakul Shenoy. USL Diageo continued its celebration of #LoveScotch in Bangalore with candid conversations and precious moments around Scotch whisky which began at Permit Room and ended at Arbour Brewing Company.IMG_4139

The unique flavour and personality of of Scotch Whisky made Anushka and Nakul share their love for their favorite blends. Both the lovely personalities tried their hands behind the bar by creating signature serves and exotic cocktails with the help of United Spirits Reserve Brand Ambassador Andrew Qadri.  Anushka created West Coast Julep made with the iconic Johnnie Walker Black Label while Nakul made Sunset Cinnamon infused with Black Dog Black Reserve.

We absolutely loved Anushka’s comfy and sporty look. She was wearing an off shoulder dress with white kicks and an absolutely adorable half top knot. She even did an impromptu by singing a song for everyone that made the even more interesting and fun. Nakul, on the other hand grabbed everyone’s eyes by his wonderful mind reading skills that got everyone mind boggled for sure.

While speaking to our team, she mentioned her connection with her favorite drink Johnnie Walker Black Label. She stated “Scotch is the world’s favourite whisky and my love for it is timeless. My father’s favourite Scotch Whisky is Johnnie Walker Black Label and hence mine too! Whenever and wherever I globe trot I always bring him a bottle of his favorite Scotch Whisky and It’s almost like a ritual now. It’s the first whisky I knew, and the one I enjoy sipping the most.”

On the other hand, this was what Nakul Shenoy had to say about his love for scotch whisky- “I enjoy and savour my glass of Vat 69 Scotch Whisky. It embodies the spirit of being unique and doing things differently which resonates with me. The pub crawl was amazing fun and a great way to showcase our love for Scotch Whisky. I now realize it is no easy task to make cocktails as it needs skill and technique to do so. Whether neat, on the rocks or in a cocktail, there is no right or wrong way to drink Scotch whisky, as long as you enjoy it, that’s all that matters.”

10 Best Foundations In India for Summer|Tips to choose the right foundation

Hello ladies,

Ever since I started doing makeup, finding a good foundation in the right shade was a pain for me and especially in a country like India, where most people are obsessed with being fair, a dusky girl like me can never find her right shade. I still come across SA in stores who try to convince you to buy shades that is way lighter than your actual skin tone and apparently it makes you look brighter and fresh. LOL!

Let me tell you a few tips to take care of when you go to buy a foundation:

  • Don’t let the SA swatch the shade on your hand. Make sure you swatch it on your jawline and on your forehead to see if the shade matches well with your skin.
  • Test the shade in daylight before buying it since the lighting in the store can be deceiving.
  • You can probably ask the SA to apply it on one side of the face and finish your shopping and come back to buy it once you are done. This way you can do flash photography test also and check the longevity of the foundation.

Now that we know the tricks to find the right shade, let’s talk about some of the best foundations available in the Indian market.

  1. Maybelline Fit me & Poreless Foundation: This is my current favorite foundation and I’m glad that Maybelline tried to include more shades suitable to Indian skin tone. It gives a semi-matte finish and medium coverage and is perfect for oily skin. Dry skin ladies can always moisturize well before applying this foundation. The best part is it fills into pores amazingly and gives an almost flawless finish. Price: 525 INR. Quantity: 30ml

  2. Lo’real  24H Infallible Stay Fresh Foundation: I have already done a detailed review on this product HEREThis is definitely a bit on the pricier side, but worth all the money you spend. It gives a full coverage matte finish and is again amazing for oily skin girls. The shade availability is great and even the staying power is commendable. The foundation is perfect to be worn for events and other occasions. Price: 1325 INR. Quantity: 30ml

  3. Faces Glam On Prime Perfect Foundation: This is not very popular among the crowd probably due to the lack of raving about it on the internet, but recently I saw this with a friend of mine and tried it and I was super impressed by this foundation. The foundation has 5 shades which caters to most of the Indian skin tones, but again leaving the darker skin toned women of our country. The creamy texture is easily blendable if you work your way quickly and also gives a matte finish. Price: 699 INR. Quantity: 30ml

It gives a medium to full coverage and stays  for a long time. Price: 1025 INR. Quantity: 30ml

  8. Bourjois Paris Healthy Mix Foundation:  As the name suggests, this product does impart a good healthy glow on your face without making you look like a grease ball. The blendable texture makes it extremely easy to work onto your skin. The best part is the longevity of the product. Even during extremely hot summers, this foundation does a great work for at least 6-7 hours. Price: 1480 INR. Quantity: 30 ml

  9. Colorbar Full Cover Makeup Stick:  Apart from the limitation in the shades, this foundation cum concealer stick is pretty amazing. The staying power is excellent and even has an SPF of 30. I’d tried this foundation at the Colorbar counter and went on a super hectic day thereafter and girls, no kidding but this foundation didn’t smear even a little on my sweaty face that too in the humid Chennai weather. A bit pricier on the side, but I think it’s worth the money. Price: 675 INR. Quantity: 8 gm

  10. Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation: This foundation has a mousse texture to it and makes your pores look smaller if not fade them completely. The product blends amazingly on the skin and comes in around 5-6 shades. If you are looking for a dewy finish foundation, this is really good for you and doesn’t make your face look cakey at all. Price: 700 INR. Quantity: 30 ml

Three ways to wear dungarees the street style|Denim Dungarees/Overall Trend

Hello lovely people,

The ’90s are having a moment, and overalls or our very own dungarees are back in full force! Denim dungarees retain a sense of easy, relaxed cool. They’re the original, and probably the safest and easiest option if you’re trying out the dungarees trend for the first time. Denim will always look casual and laid back for this summer, there are always ways to add up some fun bit to it. Be careful to sport your dungarees the right way, or you might look like a kid or you just walked off of a farm and we don’t want that right 😛

Here, I have styled my dungarees in 3 different ways, for 3 different occassions. I got this dungaree from StalkBuyLove.com and ever since then, I’ve been just wearing these in so many different ways. You can get yourself a pair too from them as they have some really cool styles from wide leg overalls to skinny ones to even pinafores.

  1. Look 1: This look is something that I would prefer for brunch parties or a laid back outing with your girlfriends. You can sport this look for a date, if you are not one of those who wants to be all dressy and lady like but still want to add a bit flirtiness to your outfit. I absolutely love this off shoulder dress which is also from  and the amount of times I’ve worn this, I think by now, all my friends are tired of seeing me in this top already. I’ve worn my favourite pair of wedges that I’d got from Jabong 2 years back and so many people have complimented me for these. You can wear them either with both the straps on or to keep it a bit casual, let one side be kept loose like I did here.

  2. Look 2: The second look is a bit more sexy yet chic for me. I wore this to a recent launch at Forever 21 and I absolutely loved the way it turned out. I had no plans of putting this look in the post, but since many of you liked this look on instagram, I’ve added the pictures from the event itself. You can always sport your dungarees with a nice crop top and some glitter heels like mine. To give your overalls a slightly sleeker feel, cuff them at the ankles. It helps make the baggier fit more flattering, and makes your legs look longer! The crop top underneath adds an extra dose of flirtiness. I recently got this crop top from Splash and the coral bag is again from STALKBUYLOVE. Oh yes! I do shop a lot from SBL.

  3. Look 3: This is the most comfy look out of the 3 and I think would suit any body type provided you go for a good fitting dungaree. All you have to do is just style your dungarees with a quirky tee or just a plain basic tee (preferably not white) and you are good to go. I have paired the dungarees with a tee from People that I’d bought from Mumbai for just 200 Rs. This is a perfect airport ensemble I feel and can bet that you’ll have the most comfiest flight journey ever.

    Also, the duffel bag that I’m carrying is from a brand called MOHAWK and trust me you guys, ever since I received this bag, I’ve been using it all the time while travelling. It’s super spacious and durable and fits all my essentials. The best part is they have bags for office goers to travellers to even backpackers. There are even some really amazing multipurpose bags that can be carried from your office to your your vacation. You can find their products on all the e-commerce websites like Amazon, Flipkart, Snapdeal etc and even get some really good discounts. I love this brownish-reddish shade and like the fact it has good hardware which, if taken good care can last you a long long time.

    Make sure you checkout their Facebook page for their unique designs and style. I am so going to order some more bags for my upcoming travel plans from them because they are just not bags but are definitely statement pieces.

Hope you liked this lookbook and got some ideas to style your dungarees/ overalls. I’m totally digging for this ’90s outfit and I would love to know from you, how you would style your overalls. Make sure to comment below and let me know!

Till then stay awesome 😀

We got a chance to take a lot of selfies with her too. Hitesh was glad, that he could reach upto her height and get a picture clicked with Coco. Haha! Randeep Hooda and Dino Morea made sure to keep the party all fun and exciting by pulling others legs and being all humorous. When asked, Randeep likes to drink Black Dog and also likes Black and Blue label and said, “Celebrating World Whisky Day instantly takes me back to all the times that I spent with my dad, discussing my career over a glass of Black Dog. He always enjoys his Scotch on the rocks, while I have grown to enjoy it in different ways. And this is exactly why #LoveScotch resonated with me.”

Dino prefers Black and White with Whisky Sour being an all-time favourite. Mandira stated she likes her single malt whisky with two cubes of ice on the rocks and mentioned, “Each of us have a prized possession and for me it’s my bottle of Singleton that adorns my home bar till today. I enjoy my Scotch especially when celebrating special moments with friends and family.”

According to Coco, “A bottle of scotch is the best gift to be give to your friends and they will like you more. Celebrating World Whisky Day in India has been an absolute pleasure. I am a whisky lover myself who enjoys her Johnnie Walker Black Label and for me to get the opportunity to meet the Scotch enthusiasts of Bangalore was a great experience. We are officially introducing #LoveScotch to India and I’m sure this will create a movement that celebrates a global love affair with the world’s favourite whisky – Scotch.”

Since I keep travelling all the time these days, I was so excited to see what I received in the box. I saw a change in their packaging this time and I was quite happy about it. They had enclosed the actual box in a cardboard box for extra protection during the whole shipping process, thus making sure the box is intact along with the products.

What I received in the May Mystery Box:

  1. Personalised Passport holder/cover: This was the star of the box this month and my favourite among the lot. I received a gold toned passport holder from The Messy Corner with my name etched on it along with some charms that screams vacation. It also has two mini slits inside where you can maybe keep your atm cards etc.

  5. Cleansing Lotion: To be honest, I was first a bit skeptical about this white pepper cleansing lotion from The Nature’s Co. Who would have ever thought using white pepper to clean your face, but this thing is amazing and removes even your waterproof mascara easily without any tingling sensation. Don’t get scared by the name you guys 😉

Achieving “Serenity”|Color of the year 2016 featuring StalkBuyLove

Hello everyone,

This summer is going all out with colors without any perceivable distinctions in color choices between the men’s and women’s collections, both of which focuses on breathable and playful fabrics. Colors this season are those that transport us to a much happier, sunnier place where we feel free to express ourselves.

The heat this year is so harsh that I really don’t feel like going out anywhere and even at 7 in the morning, it’s already sunny and hot and that really spoils my mood every time I decide to go out for a shoot. But with  colors like serenity, rose quartz, buttercup and many more light and “soothing to eyes” summer shades, you can have a much better experience while dressing in this horrible heat. My personal favorite from this year’s color 2016 is definitely SERENITY that conjures an expanse of bleached blue sky, a perfect definition of SUMMER right?

When I found this jumpsuit in the color SERENITY on StalkBuyLove.com, I knew I had to grab it and instead of going for my right size which is S, I went for a size bigger for a more breathable style. The jumpsuit is a perfect blend of formal and brunch wear and you can style it up or down as per your requirement. I have gone for a formal look here with  stilettos and a plain bracelet and minimal makeup which is appropriate for those who are looking for a stylish work wear.

The fabric of this jumpsuit is very breathable and the tie-ups at the collar can be tied into a bow for a more professional look or can be left open. You can even roll up the sleeves for a more brunch ready look and roll up the bottom part a bit higher and wear them with sandals for a casual look  I’ve tied my hair into a high pony tail to keep them away from my face and trust me you guys, I roamed around the whole in this outfit after the shoot without feeling the harsh heat on my skin. There are so many other outfits ranging from off shoulder tops to skirts to even dresses in the color serenity on StalkBuyLove.com and I’m definitely going back to get my hands on them for this year. The best part is, you can flaunt this color and other Pantone colors throughout the year in various silhouettes and styles and hence getting wardrobe staples in Serenity and rose quartz would be the best option to make use of the clothes all year long.

#UnlimitedSummerLooks with Unlimited stores|Blogger’s Meet

Hola,

So many stores are coming up with such amazing summer collections that I just cannot stop myself from shopping every month. Last week, I got to attend the unveiling of the summer collection at the Unlimited Stores located at Indiranagar, Bangalore and trust me you guys, I was so happy to see the vibrant collection they had for both men and women at such affordable prices. I have previously collaborated with Unlimited Stores last year for their #3Kunlimited Challenge and I’d thoroughly enjoyed taking up the challenge and styling myself.

Brands at Unlimited:

The Unlimited store offers the latest fashion for the whole family ranging from Formals for men through Brands like “Excalibur”, “Geoffrey Beene”, “Cherokee”,“Ruggers”, “Colt” , “Karigari” ,”Anahi”,“Bronz” “Sugr” .

About the event:

The event started with foot tapping and bang and when i say bang, I literally mean it, all thanks to the fun African congo players who also made sure that everybody tap their feet to their rhythm.

After some crazy cardio, we were addressed by the CEO of Arvind Ltd who briefed us about the brand and the new collection. After that, a few of the fellow Bangalore bloggers styled the models in their choice of outfits from the Summer collection. Here are a few of my favorites from the styling session.

The men’s collection was something that really impressed me. With all that vibrant prints, I was honestly lured in buying some printed shirts to style myself in and very soon I’m going back to the store for that 😀

After, the styling session was obviously the photo session. When so many bloggers from the city come together, how could we miss a chance to strike a pose for the camera! With quirky comic bubbles and an amazing summery backdrop, we took tons of pictures and selfies and was also treated with chilled virgin mojitos, yummy red velvet cupcakes and macarons.

Here is a brief description of the collection from the store that I loved the most:

Ethnic Wear: A perfect blend of distinct style with bold and colorful ethnic prints is offered by two brands named as Karigari and Anahi. Karigari range includes styles that celebrate the contemporary Indian in you! And Anahi range is adorned with exquisite embroideries for occasion wear that reflects authenticity.

Jeans Wear/Denim Wear: The ranges dominated with Indigoes in the collection from solids, checked and printed shirts, stripes, and hoodies as a colour palette. I really loved the men’s shirts which were vibrant and perfect for summers.

We were also treated with a cute goodie basket filled with summer essentials like pressed juices, organic honey, flowers and gift cards which ofcourse I used to do my bit of damage 🙂

The whole event was fun-filled and I got to meet some lovely fellow bloggers there too. Make sure to checkout their summer collection in your city if you are from the South India and or all those who live in other parts of the country, don’t you worry because they have plans to open new stores very soon by the end of this year. 🙂

 

Till then stay awesome 😀
