Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017!

Hola,

A very happy new year to everyone who’s been a constant support to me and spare their time to visit this sweet little place of mine. It’s 2017- a year of new beginnings, new adventures and new people. 2016 were filled with loads of emotions; from being super happy to being almost depressed, it was definitely a roller coaster ride. But, I think that’s what makes you a stronger person. Right!

Some of the best things in my life happened in 2016, from collaborating with well-known brands and building a relationship with awesome PR companies to getting enrolled in one of the renowned universities in the world, I think it was all worth the struggle and hardships. I learnt so much about blogging in 2016 and made some really amazing blogger friends. I never really had much of girl friends and through blogging, I met some highly talented bloggers whose guidance and help have been one of the factors for the growth of That Trip-e Urban Life. the blog that was started with just me, now has so many lovely people associated with it and who has constantly helped me with covering events, contributing good reading substance and not to forget lots of love and appreciation.New year 2017

I lost my baby dog Pluto in 2016 and this was one of those moments where I didn’t know how to show my feelings. There’s not many people who understand the grief of losing a pet. Even more hurtful was the fact that I was miles away from him and couldn’t even bid my final goodbye to him. But I know he’s in a happy doggie place and watching us all. dsc_2030dsc_2075

 

I’m have high hopes from 2017 and expecting some positive results both professionally and personally. I want to get my masters degree real soon and work towards my dream job. Blogging is definitely my first love, but I’m not yet ready to give up everything and go back to full time blogging for many personal reasons. Well, we can discuss all about that maybe in a different post when the time comes. I’ve not really paid attention to my health in 2016, and will try to be healthier this year and start an exercise regime. I am aiming for a certain body goal this year and for that I need to stop my coffee obsession, which is really difficult for a person like me who’s been living on coffee day and night. LOL! But hell yeah! You gotta do what you gotta do, and that’s why coffee and a lot of other really horrible things needs to be kicked out of my life real soon.New year 2017

Well, this is my plan for 2017 and I am going to try my best to stick to these plans. They are nothing major, but I’m sure, they are going to add so much more to my life.

Living a dream| Zahana- An online Accessories and Apparels store

Hello everyone,

It’s been quite some days since I’ve been trying to put up this post, but I had a lot of things going on in my head and I needed some clarity before I could write something. Finally after trying to clear up my mind, I decided to post this review cum lookbook featuring Zahana, a Chennai based online website I recently found . A brand that sells amazing fashion accessories and apparels at unbelievable prices is definitely a dream and Peenal Jain, the founder of Zahana lets that dream come true for all of us in India. From boho styles to traditional south Indian styles to even quirky stackables, you can find all sorts of jewellery at Zahana.

The beautiful founder Peenal was sweet enough to send me some of the collections from Zahana and I have styled them in looks that are perfect for this summer from ranging from brunch parties to evening strolls to also kickass parties.  2016-04-13_18.53.39

I’m absolutely in love with this beautiful piece of statement necklace. The neutral colors can go well with any color outfit and that makes it a versatile piece for me. You can get this necklace for just 450 Rs.

I own so many midi rings but most of them are loose on my fingers, thanks to they being super thin. These pretty pieces fit me so well and look so chic and elegant on my fingers. I absolutely love them 🙂 They are available at Zahana.in at just 250 Rs.

Tasseled earrings are so much in trend this season and let me tell, you can pair them up in so many different ways. I paired these earrings with this golden dress from Vero Moda and my favorite bag from Lavie. You can also pair these with Indian outfits like anarkali suits along with a low tied bun. This pair was available just for 350 Rs.

I absolutely fell in love with this beautiful cuff the very first time I saw it on the website and had to get it. It looks so pretty with can be dressed up or down as per the occassion. The best part is the price as usually such pretty and good quality pieces are always very high priced but this was just for 490 Rs.

I had styled these pair of earrings with a beautiful silk saree but unfortunately the pictures got corrupted and my photographer wasn’t available to do a reshoot. These are perfect to style with a pretty saree or a maxi dress to look all royal and classy. This was also on a sale on the website and was just for 99 Rs.IMG_20160420_194824

The overall experience with Zahana was awesome and so far this is one of my favorite online store to shop for accessories and above all, it’s not just a jewellery store, but they also have really cool sunglasses, quirky notebooks and more such stationary products. Trust me, you will not come across such websites or brands that often which sells good quality accessories and apparels at such great prices. Zahana ships throughout the country and also has an instagram and facebook page where you can checkout their latest collections and new arrivals. Plus you can also checkout their website for 99 Rs deals too 😀
