#MochaMania with L’oreal Professional| My hair makeover at Play Salon

Hello everyone,

Hope you all slayed the Monday Blues pretty well and are all set to rock the rest of the week with loads of positivity. Few days back, I visited the Play salon located in Phoenix Market city mall in Whitefield, Bangalore to try out the latest hair colour trend by exclusively curated by L’oreal proffesionals using their INOA Mocha range or popularly known as the #MochaMania.

Mocha is surely the colour of the year 2016. But what’s so special about these mocha colours? The rich mocha shades are an amazing mix of browns, just like the mocha coffee, which is an aromatic and colour-infused blend of coffee and chocolate.  These Mocha shades are under its no-ammonia portfolio – INOA with new shade numbers 4,8 / 5,18 / 7,18 and 8,8.

My Experience:

First of all, I must admit the hospitality of each and every staff at Play Salon. This was my first ever visit to the salon and I was made so comfortable by the staff and was offered coffee and then the senior hair stylist Abdul did a scalp and hair test before the hair colour treatment to check the condition of my hair and scalp. He told me that my hair is way too dry and had a lot of breakage along with dandruff issues.

He suggested me a dandruff treatment as well as the newly launched Kerastase Fusio-Dose treatment to treat my hair and scalp. Since my hair was previously chemically treated during rebonding, he advised me to go for a subtle shade which included least amount of bleaching and thus we decided on the shade 7,18 which was a very pretty dark brown mocha shade and using the Balayage technique for application which gives a very natural look.

Abdul was quite engaging and explained each step during the entire process and why it was being done on the hair. After keeping the colour for a while, he did the colour wash and then went ahead with a dandruff treatment. The scalp felt super cool due to the peppermint in the mixture and after washing the mixture thoroughly from my hair, we proceeded to the Kerastase treatment. There are different variants of Fusio Dose which is used according to the requirement for the hair. As post colour treatment is very essential for maintaining the health of the hair as well as the colour itself, he used the pink coloured fusio dose along with the Vita-Cement which helps in strengthening your hair. After spraying the mixture all over the hair, it was time to give mist to the hair which will infuse the fusi0 dose into the hair and will work instantly.

It was time to see the final results, and it was only after 3 years I was going to see my hair coloured. I had so many doubts in my head and was sceptical about whether it would look good on me or if it would damage my hair etc etc. But when I finally saw the hair colour after the blow drying and styling, damn I was stunned! It looked so good and the hair looked beautiful in those loose curls.

7 ways to style your KURTAS this summer

Hello everyone,

It feels like eternity since I posted something here and to be honest I am not going to be apologetic about it this time for the very fact that I was not in the right frame of mind to write or put my head into anything creative and didn’t want to post anything just for the sake of posting. Well, am all fine now, atleast I feel fine and now it’s time for me to get back to something that I absolutely love- Blogging!

Today we are going to talk about kurtas and how this versatile piece can be styled in various ways and can be truly called a fashion statement. A lot of us don’t really know the difference between a KURTA and KURTI and I was one of them too until last year. After some research, I found out the difference and realised that a Kurti is the one which is shorter in length usually till your hips and a Kurta is more of a longer silhouette and usually till the knees or even below that. Well, that really does mean a huge difference right!

Now that we are sorted out with what Kurtas are, let’s talk about them a bit more. A Kurta is one of the most comfortable pieces that one can find in their wardrobe. They are casual yet very chic and make an amazing style statement if styled well and appropriate according to the occasion. You can style one Kurta in so many different and unique ways; All you need is a little creativity and lots of mixing n matching.Let’s find out the different ways one can style a Kurta.

  • Leggings: This is the most common way, we all know to style our kurtas with. They are comfortable, convenient to carry and look very classy on anyone. You can wear leggings that match with the Kurta color or go for contrasting colors and pair some jumkas and kolhapuris to go for comfy yet stylish Indian look.
    I found these pretty vibrant kurtas HERE.
    biba biba10
  • Palazzos: This is the most recent trend that’s in vogue and one of my most favorites too. It is super comfortable and yet looks stylish in so many ways. These wide legged flared pants looks flattering on different types of body. Wear a solid color with a printed kurta or a printed palazzo with a solid colored kurta and you are going to look fabulous.

  • Indo- Western dresses:   Flaunt your super long anarkali styled kurtas or the short flared kurtas as as dresses and give yourself an Indo-western look. Choose the right one and style it with the right accessories to darn your winner look. These are perfect looks for college-goers or even for brunch meetups. Style the kurta with a boho neckpiece, joottis and a jhola for that perfect Bohemian/ Indo-western look.biba7

  • Slim Fitted Pants: Pairing your Kurta with a slim fitted trouser or pants is perfect for an office look. It’s comfortable and looks fab and helps in making you look tall and lean. You can carry this look to even a party by going for printed pants in cotton or silk fabrics.  biba12 biba11straight
  • Skirts: This is my second favourite way of styling kurtas. The best part is they let you breathe in what you are wearing , hence perfect for the tropical weather in India and also looks elegant on most body types. You can go for matching coloured skirts or go for a plain kurta with loud coloured skirts or vice-versa.
      biba3

                    Buy this here

  • Jackets: A simple plain kurta with a printed or an embroidered jacket is a perfect alternative to a dupatta. It looks smart and gives you an ethnic look as well. Button it or just let it loose, a jacket is trendy and cool.  You can go for long jackets with a slit in the front or at the sides or short cropped jackets for a more casual college look.biba2                                                   
  • Jeans: One of the most recent trends that has come back from the 90s. I remember wearing my kurtas with jeans in my teenage years. Now the best part about teaming your kurtas with jeans is that you can either go for slim fitted jeans or even go for a casual look by pairing them with a boyfriend jeans or a distressed jeans. Add some joottis or kolhapuris and a jhola and see how you are going to turn numerous heads towards you.

There is a certain charm in Indian wear and makes every woman look beautiful in the most comfortable way.It all depends on how you choose the right silhouette according to your body type and how you style them with the right accessories. Long Kurtas make you look leaner and taller. Use this to your best advantage and dance away to glory. Have a diverse collection of kurtas based on fabric and style and stay on top of the ethnic fashion race. One Kurta can give you so many different looks and that’s the beauty of Kurtas.

Men’s Casual Summer look |Chambray trend| Face of the Month June 2016

Hello everyone,

I’ve been suffering from a very bad cold since the past week and that’s why I have not been active on my social media or even posting blogs. But finally I decided to get up from the bed and post this look that was supposed to go live a long back.

Nothing will give you that immediate rockstar feel like a chambray shirt because it defines “understated cool”. The chambray shirt is one of those statement pieces that can never go wrong and has made sure it is here to stay. Pick white chinos or joggers for bottoms that look like summer and you are set to look effortlessly fashionable. Colours always incite a certain kind of feeling and perhaps blues remind us of the summer days. Or maybe it’s because it’s the easiest colour to match! Whatever it is, blue has been ubiquitous in spring/summer menswear collections.

So here is a look that i have put up for our Face of the Month for June on the blog, Hitesh who happens to be the blog’s official photographer too. He is the man behind for all the beautiful pictures on the blog and one of the reasons for making me look pretty for you all through his pictures. Hehehe

Since, he’s too camera shy, it was kind of difficult for me to convince him to do this shoot for me and a lot more difficult for me to make this tall boy pose for the pictures. But I think we did quite a good job and have come up with this simple casual look using a Chambray Shirt from Wills Lifestyle. We have paired the shirt with denim joggers which according to me is one of the best pieces that any guy can own in his wardrobe. Since it’s a summer look, we went for flip flops instead of shoes, but if you like wearing shoes, go for a nice pair of white sneakers or kicks and you can make this look even more stylish.

If you are not comfortable experimenting with joggers, you can always go for your good old pair of jeans or even white or beige chinos. You can convert this look into a party look by simply pairing them up with chinos and some brogues. Hitesh likes simple and effortless looks, hence he wanted to stick to this minimal look and he thinks this is something the college-goers can definitely try.

I saw this polka dotted chambray shirt at Wills Lifestyle and instantly picked it up for this shoot. They have an amazing Indigo collection and I think you guys should definitely check out their new collection. I have talked about their SS16 collection in my previous post HERE and how their men’s collection truly impressed me.

Chambray has such a cult status because of its off-duty cool vibe, so keep it simple and cool.  Do not try and think too hard about how to style this trend. However you decide to wear it, as long as you keep your look simple you will have that rockstar feel, trust me. Chambray is not just about the shirt. Recently, because of its popularity and versatility, it has expanded into the world of suits. The best part is, it’s a versatile item; By investing in some quality pieces, like a heavy feel shirt and a lighter weight one, you will be covered for every season.  Wear it under a coat for an extra layer, or wear it open as a coat itself.

If you own a chambray shirt or would want to own one, how would you style yours? Comment below and let me know and tell me what you think of this month’s face of the month? Would you like to get featured next month? Send me an email at thattripeurbanlife@gmail.com and I will definitely like to get back to you.

Unveiling the Wills Lifestyle Spring-Summer 2016 Collection

Hola,

Hope none of you are having trouble dealing with the Monday Blues today. I have been having super hectic and troublesome days but somehow trying to stay positive and getting through them. Back to the post for today, a few weeks back, I was invited by Wills Lifestyle for their SS16′ launch in Chennai. This was the first time I ever went for an event at Wills Lifestyle, but was in awe after seeing the beautiful collection they have come up with this year.

For me, Wills Lifestyle was always a place to buy my formal wears from, but with the spring summer collection this year, they have upped their game for sure. They have collaborated with some amazing and renowned designers from the industry and I got to style 4 models in my favorites from the collection. I wanted to create looks that were appropriate as casual brunch wear as well as those that can be worn to work but something apart from the boring basic colors.

I styled the male model in a striped pink Polo T-shirt along with black denims which went really well with his white kicks. To match with the casual look, I asked the female model to go for the assymetrical blue dress from Ritu Kumar and a white handbag from the collection. This look was created keeping in mind the scorching summers that we all are facing these days. The silhouettes were amazing and the fabrics used in this collection is super comfortable and wearable even during the day time

The next two models were styled for more of an office appropriate look or something that can be worn to official parties and events. When it comes to work wear, most of go for basic colors, but i think we can play with colors if styled in a subtle way. I love Nehru jackets and I feel men look so presentable when they wear a jacket like this on top of their shirts. So i gave the model this off-white Nehru jacket to pair it up with the blue formal shirt. I styled the female model in a pretty orange shift dress which I absolutely loved and accessorised it with a white clutch. You can even top it up with a summer blazer to give it a more professional look.

The 2016 Spring Summer collection is all about breezy fabrics and summery shades. You will find outfits that are so comfortable once put on. The men’s collection impressed me in every aspect. From the indigo/denim range to their formals, everything was stylish yet comfortable.

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:

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.

Summer LookBook featuring Clovia.Com

Hello my lovely people,

Hope you are having a great weekend. I am on a blogging marathon and have been scheduling a lot of posts for the coming week since I’ll be travelling and don’t want to miss on posting any of the blogs like last time.

Summers are on full mode right now and everybody’s planning on going for vacations to some nice breezy place or just chill at home. I have come up with 3 looks here in this post that are appropriate for a beach vacation, a brunch date and a laidback movie night at home respectively. This post is in collaboration with Clovia.com which was known as MoodsOfCloe.com earlier. They have some of the best lingerie and loungewears and have recently started curating pretty summer apparels too and all at really affordable price range. I have been shopping with them for all most of my lingerie long before I started blogging and I can definitely vouch on their awesome fabric quality and comfort.

LOOK 1- Let’s Go to the Beach

This pretty polka dot Beach dress is super comfy and flowy and one can breathe easy in this soft silky fabric. I paired the dress with a floral Kimono to give it a more beachy look. Sadly, Bangalore doesn’t have beaches and I had no time to go for a vacation to a beach, hence had to do with this beautiful dress and get the feel of a vacation. Hehehee

LOOK 2- Would you be my date?

The next look is a Brunch Date look. The floral dress shouts out loud and tell you that it’s the perfect outfit for this summer. I wanted to keep the accessories minimal and hence paired it up with a statement necklace from Zahana and block heels from Amazon.in The fabric is light and breathable and has a tie up lace behind, that cinches your waist and give you a more structured look

And the final look is of course for lazy girls like me. Nothing fancy here, just a super lazy and comfy lounge wear. The shorts are the comfiest pair I own till date and no! Clovia hasn’t paid me to say that; They are really Comfortable and soft on your skin and is perfect for the ruthless heat we all are experiencing this year. The tee was a tad bit tight for me, but I can still wear them during the day and while around in the house if not in the night.

So these were 3 simple looks that are so very summery and easy going. You can find really good deals on Clovia and create your own summer looks without much brainstorming. Summers should be all about easy going and breathable and Clovia has all that in their lingerie and Fashion apparel collection.  There’s a Women’s only WOSF Sale going on currently on their website and you can get some great deals on all their merchandise<HAPPY DANCE>

SPLASH into Summer| SS16′ Collection at Splash

Hola everyone,

Summers are all about fruity crushers and fun colors and that’s what SPLASH– a brand from the middle east and a part of Landmark group reminded me of when I recently got a chance to attend their blogger’s meet at VR Bengaluru. 

While relishing their refreshing cranberry drink and some yummy snacks, we whiled around the store where their store manager and their marketing head showed around the drool-worthy collection they have at their store. The collection at Splash is all international level and surprisingly at a very pocket-friendly price too. Their collection includes Splash DNM, Vintage, Basics, Youth, Smart and  Accessories that makes a customer’s shopping experience delightful as well as time-saving. If you know in your head what you want to buy, all you have to go to the right section and BAMM, you have your choices.

My favorites were definitely the DISNEY inspired collection ranging from Joggers to T-shirts and what not. The men’s collection was quite impressive and definitely something that all men would surely enjoy. Some of the eye-catching apparels were their long and extra long T-shirts for men, crazy affordable Denims and of course their basics. Even their Boho-vintagy collection was damn cool and reminded me of some of the outfits I saw from Coachella 2016. And not to forget their oh-so awesome accessories. You won’t believe but I was so awestruck by their boho-vibes and wanted to just get everything from their Accessories section from tasselled neckpieces to coachella-inspired backpacks and even party appropriate clutch bags.

After getting to know the brand well with it’s collection, we got to style ourselves in their new collection and trust me guys, I was spoilt for choice with all the wonderful clothes out there. After almost an hour of deciding on what to finalise, I came up with this look.

I paired a beautiful black midi skirt with a striped crop top which was actually a part of a co-ord set. I accessorised this look with a tasseled neckpiece and my favorite out of the lot, this red tasseled sling cum clutch bag. This outfit was so ME and the footwear I wore for the event went really well with this whole look. I wish, they also had Footwear collection to complete our shopping experience.

I absolutely loved how the whole look came out and got some nice compliments from everyone too 🙂 This outfit is perfect for a brunch date or even for a party. My style is usually all about being girly and dressy and this was just so perfect.

All of you should definitely checkout SPLASH in your city for fashionable and yet affordable clothing. I am so glad to be a part of this event and loved the experience. Here is a picture with all the other pretty bloggers and you can also see my OOTD from the event.
