All about the Postie SS18 Collection

Hi everyone,

 

A few weeks back I was invited for the official preview of the SS18 collection from Postie which is now available both in stores and on their website. I was so pleasantly surprised by the beautiful collection of clothes they had for not just grown ups but also for the little babies and kids at such affordable prices.

Their SS18 collection is inspired by the chic summer adventures and carefree fashion and is perfect for those who love to keep it stylish without a hole in their pocket. There is something for everyone- from those who love bright mustards and reds to those who like to keep it neutral yet chic.

Talking about the women’s wear, the collection has a lot of fresh prints from florals to forest prints. They’ve also included some really pretty linen-blend pieces and my favourite were the linen striped dresses which were just for $39 which is a steal for a good quality comfy dress which would be the perfect addition to my summer wardrobe. The collection also includes front-tie cotton shirts which would go so well with beach shorts, denims from just $15. I loved it so much that I picked up a piece for myself the very next week after the event!!

The fact that Postie not only caters to fashion for grown ups but also for new borns, little girls & boys and big girls & boys. I think more than the women’s wear, I was so excited to see the kid’s collection. There is a huge variety of essential pieces for those who are looking for fashionable pieces for their little bubs starting just at $5. Isn’t that awesome!!! Not just that, there were a lot of boho pieces for your kids now and trust me, now all I want is a little girl to dress her up in all these must-have cute outfits. Haha!!

Now don’t think that Postie has forgotten the little boys, as their new season has a strong essence of the New York street-style and has a lot of khakis, camos, blues and reds. Their jogger range is the cutest for little boys to big boys with some really cool graphic tees too.

Apart from these, the brand also has an array of pieces in their Disney range and it was a big hit among everyone at the event and I would totally recommend them to anyone who’s looking to dress up their kids in some cute yet affordable and good quality clothes.

Overall I’m glad I could experience the new collection first hand and in fact so impressed by the price and the variety that Postie has for the entire family. I’m so excited to style some of the pieces that I picked up at the store recently. They are super affordable yet stylish and I’m all about that great bargain!

What to wear to work when it’s cold AF| Part 1 ft. Reliance Footprints

Happy Sunday!

Deciding what to wear to work is itself a hard job, but when it comes to winter it gets all the more difficult. All most of us think about is to keep ourselves warm and reach out to the same sweater and warm pants.

Winters are associated with colours like blacks, greys and blues, but why would you want to just stick to these boring colours. The cold weather can be quite depressing in itself, especially in a city like Auckland where we have literally 6-8 months of just cold and wet days. I like to add some colour to my outfits and since half my life is now in office, I like to carry colour with me to work. Adding bold colours with your blacks and greys can be quite fun and you can easily sail through the horrible cold days.

In part 1 of this series, I’ll show you an outfit that can be carried from work to a brunch with your mates to even a casual meeting.

 

I’ve paired a pleated skirt with a bright orange high-neck sweater and to beat the wind, I’ve added a trench jacket/coat which I recently found during my op-shop visit. To give it an office look, I’ve added these black pair of pumps from Catwalk that my lovely friend picked from Reliance Footprints in Bangalore (Dola, you are amazing!). Together this makes a wonderful outfit for days when the sky is grey and all you want to do is curl up in your bed. The colours are definitely going to pick up your mood and make everyone around you as well happy and cheerful 🙂

Go for darker lip colours like plums and browns. Here I’ve used ‘Fragile Things’ from colourpop on my lips and the rest of the products are all from the ‘Flights of Fancy’ collection from Wet n Wild. I’ve recently posted a complete first impressions review on the collection and you can read about it here.

Outfit Details

Skirt: Koovs

Orange sweater: Myntra (borrowed from the lovely flatmate)

Trench Coat: Op-shopped

Black Pumps: Catwalk from Reliance Footwear

 

Don’t let your wardrobe suffer due to the weather- get experimental and play with colours to turn your boring winters to an enjoyable one.

The next outfit post would be for those who like to play it safe and have a bit more stricter corporate dress codes at work. Stay tuned for it! Are you someone who loves a colourful outfit during the colder months? Let me know all about it in the comments section below.

 

Till then stay awesome 🙂

 

My Halloween Look- Desi Rani (Inspired by Shweta VJ)

Hola,

Happy Halloween to everybody! 2014 was the first ever time I celebrated Halloween and dressed up for it and ever since then, I’ve always enjoyed the idea of dressing up. For me Halloween is not just about looking scary, its about creating your own version of your favourite characters.

A few days ago I came across a Pop Art Halloween look created by the YouTuber Shweta VJ. It was not only different and unique but also super easy to create and today I decided to recreate the same look with whatever minimum makeup I had in my kit. I’m not sure if Shweta will ever come across my blog, but I hope I make her proud 😀

So here’s my two versions of Desi Rani-The Pop Art Version!!!!

I’ve tried to play around with yellow lighting here just to give a better pixelated effect. Definitely not the perfect recreation, but I think for an amateur like me, I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. I wish I had more Indian jewellery to accessorise though. Here’s a picture in white light with no editing

I hope you liked this Halloween look and would recreate it. You can checkout Shweta’s YouTube video HERE, to see the original version of this look.

My New Found Love- Miri Skincare Balm Review

Hello Everyone,

Where have I been all this while??? Well! I was trying to blend in a new country, around new people and culture. It took me  more than a year to discover myself here. Trust me it isn’t easy and not what it looks from the outside. Long story short, I’m back and trying to get back into what I love the most-sharing my experiences with you lovely people 🙂

I’ve been trying out a lot of new skincare and makeup ranges exclusively made in New Zealand and recently came across ‘Miri Skincare’ on Instagram. I was so mesmerised by its pretty green packaging, that I had to have one in my skincare kit. The team at Bare PR and Miri Skincare was kind enough to send me a sample to test out and I have all things good to say about this multi-purpose balm.

Miri Skincare Balm

But before that, here’s a small introduction about the brand- When Miri’s founder Paul Jarvis saw his wife and her friends extensively using a popular Aussie brand’s multi-purpose balm which had petrochemicals in it, he knew he had to make something that was New Zealand made and had no nasty ingredients in it. NZ is well-known around the world for its kiwifruits and Manuka honey and that’s what Paul Jarvis wanted to include in his product for its exceptional properties, and that was the birth of the Miri Balm. Miri is a Maori word that means ‘to rub, smear or smoothe’.

Ingredients: With no nasty ingredients, Miri balm mainly consists of kiwifruit seed oil and Manuka honey with Omega 3 and is completely paraben and SLS free. Find the ingredients list in the below picture-

Miri Skincare Balm- Ingredient List

How to use: This magical balm can be a life-saviour in all seasons for various skin-related issues. It can be used for issues like chapped lips, dry hands, rashes, burns or insect bites.

Miri Skincare Balm

My experience: 

The tube is a perfect size for your handbag and I’ve been carrying this balm in my bag everyday to work. I’ve super dry and chapped lips all year around and this is kind of a staple for me everyday in the morning. I use a tiny amount on my lips before applying my matte lipsticks and this ensures that the lipsticks don’t crack and also keeps my lips hydrated.

Right Hand- Without the balm

The balm has helped my cuticles to heal to a large extent. I rub a small amount on my cuticles and massage it for a minute so that the product is completely absorbed. They are also an amazing solution to cracked heels due to its antiseptic property.

I was a bit skeptical about it being oily, but honestly the product is non-sticky. It gives a nice shine to the skin and completely gets rid of dryness. The absorption takes a few minutes, but you would not feel the need of constantly moisturising your skin after using the balm.

Overall, I find this product great and I feel having an all-purpose product is superb when you’re travelling or going to work as you can refrain yourself from carrying bulky skincare kits everywhere.Due to the absence of many preservatives, it’s recommended to shake the tube well before using to so that the ingredients can mix well together.

I would totally recommend this product to everyone and to all my Non-NZ readers, this is currently available only in NZ pharmacies at RRP $12.99. I hope Miri Skincare starts selling internationally, so that the world can experience this tiny tube of goodness.

Have you tried Miri? Which is your favourite all-purpose balm? Let me know your thoughts in the comments section below.

Cover Grey Hair at Home| BBlunt Salon Secret High Shine Crème Hair Colour Review

Hello everyone,

Those of you who know me personally and follow me on Snapchat must be knowing that I’ve been suffering from premature greying from quite some time now and ever since I moved to the new place, the change of weather and water has just made it even worse. I hated it when the grey hair used to peek out of my pony tail or when people pointed out to me that I have grey hair. I have tried colouring my hair in order to get rid of the greys, but it only made my hair rougher and drier and I think most of you who suffer from greying can get what I’m saying.

When BBlunt contacted me to try out their newly launched hair colour, I wasn’t too excited at first, thinking that this would be just like any other hair colour that can be used at home. But after reading why it was different from the the regular hair colouring kits, I knew I had to try this at least once.

While all other hair colours leave your hair dull, this revolutionary at-home hair colour gives you soft, shiny hair and colour that lasts up to 4 to 6 weeks.

My experience:

I have only coloured my hair twice in my life so far and it was always in a professional salon. Thus, colouring my hair at home was definitely something which I was nervous about and procrastinated for a long time before actually taking the plunge to do it all by myself without any help and decided to go for the safest shade which is the dark brown or the chocolate colour.

BBlunt Salon Secret High Shine Crème Hair Colour Review- Before

First thing I noticed was that there was no brush that was given in the box which is definitely something that the brand should consider for future. The process of mixing the ingredients is all mentioned in the instruction leaflet which makes the entire process super easy. All you need to is mix all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl and apply over your hair or in case you want to just cover your greys, they have a marking on the tubes to let you know how much to squeeze out.  But before anything, make sure to do a patch test in order to see if you are sensitive to the ingredients even if you have coloured your hair in the past.

BBlunt Salon Secret High Shine Crème Hair Colour Review- After

Since, my hair was quite long when I coloured them, I used the entire tube and applied the colour and let it sit for 30 minutes. Before washing, the colour off, add some water to the hair and massage the scalp and emulsify the content and then you can wash it off with a colour protectant shampoo.

What I loved: 

Once the hair dried completely, I could notice the complete coverage it gave me. Apart from that the SHINE TONIC definitely did the magic. My hair is usually dry and frizzy and I could notice the softness and shine in my hair. It’s almost a month now, and I can see only a few strands go grey peeping out again, which I think is a pretty good time period, especially for an at-home colouring kit. Also, since it’s an ammonia-free colour, I think I’m definitely going to keep using it to cover greys.

I don’t see any drawbacks in this product, other than the fact that if you are someone who expects to colour your hair once in 6 months, this might not impress you much. Also, I think including a hair colouring brush would be really great to complete this kit.

Rating: 4/5

I would definitely recommend this product to those of you who are looking to colour your hair at home. Have you ever tried colouring your hair at home? Have you tried the BBlunt Salon Secret Hair colour? Let me know what you think of it in the comments below.

Treating eye bags with Lonvitalite 24K Gold & Collagen Eye Mask

Hola,

Things are getting super busy in my life and with everyday, getting to blog is getting incredibly difficult.  But, when I get some of the sweetest Dms and messages on social media from some of you, it just encourages me to not give up so easily and thus I’m back with a new review post today 😀

Long working hours in front of laptops and computers and lack of sleep results in dark circles for most of us and considering the busy lifestyles we all have, most of us don’t have enough time or patience to apply creams and wait for months to see results. Few weeks back when CS&CO contacted me and asked if I would want to check their Lonvitalite 24K Gold & Collagen eye masks. Well, why would I say NO to trying new products and especially when it’s from a brand that is sworn by Hollywood celebrities like Jessica Alba, who would not want to try it out.

Claims:

Essentially made of pure natural extract and collagen composition, the masks are an innovative transparent film increasing the one-way absorption rate to the eye area by more than 98% with moisture absorption 10 times the rate of a traditional eye mask. The nutrient laden ingredients combined with 24K Gold will permeate the skin and help to speed up cellular processes, activating regeneration which aids in restoring lost ageing skin’s volume.

Ingredients: 

Hydrolyzed soy protein, deionized water, Allantoin, Propylene glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Red algae extract  Glycerine, Vitamin C,E, and B3, Lubrajel oil, microprotein, Dmdmh and iodopropynyl butyl carbamate, L-sodium acid  Hyaluronic acid amionpropyl phosphate derivative Disodium EDTA, Grapeseed extract, Rose essential oil, Carbopol 940, Ethylhexylglycerin, Dimethylol Dimethyl Hydantoin, 24k Active, Gold TWEEN 20

My Experience:

The Lonvitalite 24K Gold & Collagen Eye Mask promises to ELIMINATE dark circles and I was really curious to know if it lives up to what it claims. They have a very silicone kind of feel to them and consists of a serum in it. As soon as I put them under my eyes, it gave a very soothing and cooling feeling to the skin. The mask has to be put for at least 20 minutes and the best part is you can walk around and do some of your chores, but I would suggest you to relax while the mask is on to serve its purpose. I applied the leftover serum in the cover all over my face, because who wants to waste such precious things in life right! 😉

Lonvitalite 24K Gold & Collagen Eye Mask: How it looks after the use

I kept the masks for 30 minutes and when I took them off, I could notice that they had become comparatively a bit thinner from when I’d put them on initially. This meant that the serum in the eye mask was well absorbed by the skin. I washed my face with plain water and did notice a considerable reduction in the dark pigmentation under the eyes. Since, the mask has a lot of good ingredients, especially hyaluronic acid, an ingredient present in most of the well-known Korean skin care products, that helps in reducing the fine lines under the eyes.

The brand advises you to 1 mask every day for 3 days, and then once a week for best results. But, I think if you are not going through serious under eye circles, using this eye mask once in 2 weeks is enough to help you deal with the dark circle problems.

If you can get your hands on these eye masks, definitely go for it because it does exactly what it claims for. I also have their Coconut Milk Hydrating face mask and I’m excited to try it out this weekend and give you all my opinion about it.

Creating my own handbag with Toteteca

Hello everyone,

I was going through my archives, and found some pictures a few months back which I didn’t quite like it and chucked the idea of posting them. But now the reason for this post is only because I want to talk about this amazing brand called TOTETECA, who specialises in personally curated handbags. Yes! You heard it right, this online website makes that makes customised bags as per your needs. And when talking about customised bags, how many times have you found yourself in a situation, where you see another girl carrying the exact same handbag like yours in a party and all you wondered was wish, you had something that no one could ever own. Well, that’s exactly what Toteteca will take care of!

About Toteteca

Toteteca is a combination of two words, tote and teca. Tote is a type of handbag and teca literally means library in Latin.
Their goal is to create a ” bag library ” of sorts where people can select bags in any color and combination to create a bag that is truly unique.

Here is the demo video that explains the entire process from choosing your design and colour, to the payment and shipping process http://www.toteteca.com/demo.php. This will tell you exactly how you can get yourself a customised bag of your choice.

  • There is an exciting array of handbags available on the website from totes to suitcase bags, they have it all and  are designed to meet Casual as well as Formal needs.
  • Each of these bags gives you an option to customise in terms of the base colour of the bag, colour of the metal/hardware used, colour of the inside lining, type and metal of monogram.
  • The awesomest part is the MONOGRAM with the initials of your choice. That means, instead of flaunting a brand’s name on your bag, the bag will have your very own initials or maybe something else that you want on it!S
  • The other best part about Toteteca is, they only use FAUX LEATHER in making these bags, but the quality of the faux leather is of high durability which feels great to touch too.
  •  They ship not only to India, but INTERNATIONALLY too! The shipping to anywhere in India is FREE of cost. They have bags to customise from 20USD to 100USD, which is definitely not too much, given the fact that you get to customise your own handbag. This is definitely a website to try out if you are a handbag lover or hoarder like me 😀

My Experience:

Coming back to what I customised for myself, it’s a cranberry coloured bag with gun metal coloured trims. Given the fact that I literally carry my whole world in my bag, I wanted something that was big, yet looked great to carry with most of my outfits. It came with it’s own small coin such bag, which was so nice to have. The bag was shipped to me in a huge dust bag, which was really thoughtful of the Toteteca guys. This is a spacious and a sturdy looking handbag and has been doing great even after months of using it together. You can checkout the pictures to see how the bag looks like and how I’ve styled it with my wide-legged denims.

Be Girly, Be De Moza

Hello girls,

It’s pouring lookbooks here on the blog and I’m so happy about it. A few months back, I was contacted by the lovely people from DeMoza stores  and was asked if I would like to checkout their collection. Since, I was not in town, I could choose some outfits from their website.

About DeMoza Stores:

De Moza word derived from Spanish word “Attractive Girl”. Since 2013 the brand has spread its operations with over 12 exclusive stores across Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune and Jaipur. De Moza is also available at leading department stores and online marketplaces.The company comes with over 15 years of technical know how of making superfine cotton and viscose fabrics and garments and bring the latest fashion with best in class quality at affordable price.

Here is the look that I’ve created with their pieces and I’m quite happy with the quality of their fabric. I’ve washed the pieces once and it’s still as good as new. I love to wear Indo-Western outfits and Palazzos are something I absolutely adore for it’s comfort and style. By far, the Palazzo I’ve received from DeMoza stores is one of my favourites. They fit well on me and feels super comfortable without making me look huge.

I’ve accessorised the look with some bling. The pretty necklace is from Aldo, that I’d received during their store launch at Express Avenue Mall in Chennai.I realised while doing the shoot, that the necklace was broken, and I was heartbroken to be honest. I never really wore this and I don’t know somehow it just broke while shifting. They have an amazing collection of pretty shoes, bags and accessories. The tie-up lace sandals are so much in trend, and this one from Truffle Collection was such a steal from Snapdeal which goes perfectly with the outfit.The entire makeup was done using Revlon products and I’m so happy how the makeup turned out. I’ve been lately loving their products way too much all over again and even reviewed their new matte nail paint range HERE.  Checkout the entire lookbook below!

Fit and Flare

Hola!!

I’ve been lately loving the seasonal transition and how I can experiment with different silhouettes and styles. I was going through my archives and I found pictures from one of my shoots that never went live here. I thought why not post it now, as the style is perfect for this weather. I’m talking about fit and flare dresses. They are also called A-line dresses and compliment usually all body types.

dsc_2005
Fit and Flare

The best part about a fit and flare dress or a skirt is how it gives an illusion of an hourglass figure, something that most of us women dream about. No matter, what your body type is, a fit and flare will make you look like that goddess with the perfect body. Even if you have wide hips and thighs , wearing a fit and flare dress or a skirt makes the lower part of your body look just like a part of the outfit. Doesn’t that sound like a magical outfit! Well, it is indeed and getting the right type of a fit and flare dress/skirt is what you need to do. Here is the look, I’ve created with this beautiful dress I picked up from. store in Lavelle Road.

Outfit Details:

Dress: Crisp, Bangalore

Sandals: Steve Madden

I prefer vintage looking flared dresses that has a structure and princess-cut flare to it  as they make you look elegant and chic. They are perfect for a date night or even to a friend’s wedding. If you are looking for something in the same style, but as an office wear, less flared out and slightly narrow towards the knees should be your pick. You can accentuate the look further, by adding a cropped jacket or a cardigan with scrappy sandals or pumps.

Bee Choo Origin Hair Spa Experience at Hairbitat, Vittal Mallya Road

Hello lovely people,

Hairfall is such a common problem these days for not just women but equally for men. Most of us have such hectic schedules, that we forget about the torture that our hair goes through every single day, from getting exposed to harsh UV rays to pollution to even those super tight hair ties and helmets we wear while riding bikes. Adding to all this agony, are all the chemical hair treatments we go through, in the hope of making them smoother, straighter and what not!

Recently, our newer member of Team ThatTripeUrbanLife, Arpitha (Know more about her HERE) went for a hair spa at Hairbitat in their newly opened branch at Vittal Mallya Road, Bangalore. When we say hair spa, don’t just think it’s any other expensive hair spa we find in salons. This was quite different, as it was completely natural and all the products were from the well-known Singapore brand Bee Choo Origins.

About Bee Choo Origin:

  • How was the staff?

I was welcomed with a warm and smiling staff who offered me a cup of piping hot herbal tea and on asking, they told me that it had chrysanthemum in it which helps you relax. After examining the scalp, we proceeded with the treatment.

  • What did the process include?
  1. A ginger tonic was applied to open up the pores to prepare the skin for the herbal treatment.
  2. The Bee Choo herbal paste, which is the main ingredient of the treatment, was applied onto the scalp and hair and wrapped with a head wrap to avoid any dripping.

  3. I headed for the steaming where a fixed temperature will be set for the first 40 minutes and then a lower temperature for the next 5 minutes for the paste to do its magic. This was the most relaxing time during the entire process.

  4. After the steaming, the scalp is allowed to cool and then the paste was washed with the help of a cooling menthol shampoo and conditioner. The therapist gave an amazing massage during the shampooing which felt like heaven to me.
  5. A vitamin essence was sprayed onto the hair along with another tonic to help prevent damaged hair.
  • Overall experience?

My hair felt really soft and covered all the greys which was quite astonishing. The herbal paste had a nice aroma to it and looked a bit like henna. The therapist told me it had 21 herbal ingredients and no chemical whatsoever is added to this special herbal paste. My scalp was also cleaned up and I could see a big difference to my hair. I was also told to get this treatment a few more times in order to see permanent fix to all the greys and other hair issues.

Yes. For the price you are paying, this is by far the best treatment I have come across which gives real results and that lasts longer even after washing your hair a few times. They recommend you to use their shampoos and conditioners and I can understand why. Most of the hair products that we use contains some or the other kind of chemicals and since Bee Choo Origin treatment has all 100% natural ingredients, they want you to use chemical free shampoos and conditioners too.

The treatment is definitely worth a try, infect more than just one try. As Arpitha mentioned, the Bee Choo Origin treatment has definitely shown results on her hair and infact has been raved quite a lot by Krupa from IshtyleAwhile. I’m definitely going to try this treatment pretty soon myself after hearing such great reviews from Arpitha. What do you think of this treatment? Have you been to any of the stores of Hairbitat India for this treatment? Let me know your views on this.

Till then stay awesome 😀
