Travel Diary:: Trip to Nainital

Travel Diary:: Trip to Nainital

Hi Everyone!

I was planning to write this post since I came back from my Nainital’s trip and it was long due as well. It took me a good amount of time to create this post as I have to select the best pictures out of all we took during our stay. Today I have so much to share with you guys. I hope you all will love it!

As I did mention in my previous post, it was quite cold in Nainital. I went on this trip with a few of my friends. We went there in the first week of October when we had our long weekend due to a couple of festivals in India. In Delhi, the weather was quite warm that time, but when we stepped out of our car in Nainital, we had to take out our jackets to keep ourselves warm.

The day we reached Nainital, it was very foggy with super chilly winds as it rained the previous night. We enjoyed while we were driving towards our hotel. We switched off our air conditioner and enjoyed the chilling winds with music and snacks. We pre-booked our hotel rooms as it was filling in fast. We stayed at Arif Castles hotel. The rooms were pretty good with the mountain view. The food was not so good, but the service was pretty satisfying.

On the second day, we took the city tour and visited all the view points and tourist areas. It was quite crowded due to the holidays, thus, we also skipped out some places. We managed to visit the lake view, the Maggi point, Waterfall, Cave Garden, Mall Road, Lake, etc. My favorite place out of all what we saw was the lake. It was breathtaking when we took the boat ride. The view was awesome and the sound of the water was so refreshing. Our city tour ended with a small walk at the Mall Road. We were pretty exhausted at the end of the day. We ended our day with some dancing and playing Dumsharas (All time favorite time pass game).

We started our journey back to Delhi the next day and on the way I saw lots of monkeys and they were so cute! I personally love monkeys. I think they are very lovable animal. Saw some baby monkeys with their mommies too (Aww, so adorable!). But sadly I could not take their pictures :((

All in all it was a great trip. Had loads of fun with friends and I will look forward for these small trips in future too, and will share those memories with you in my travel diaries.

Leaving you with some more images of the trip. Thanks you so much for reading!

Winter is Coming: Leather Jacket and Army Pants

Hi Everyone!

I know you guys have not heard from me in the last whole week as I was busy with the festive arrangements. I hope you all had a great Diwali as well. I got busy arranging my Diwali dress, decorating my home, shopping and loads of fun and in the middle of all this, I could not make out how this week ran off.

We clicked this outfit post while we were in Nainital on our last holiday. The weather was incredibly good when we went there. It was all covered with fog and we all were shivering. We went from Delhi wearing a T-shirt and we have to take out our leather jackets when we stepped out of our car in Nainital. Well, I’m preparing a travel diary on our visit to Nainital and I will share all the details of the travel in it whi9ch will be soon up on the blog.

IMG_0784-1 IMG_0821-1 IMG_0843-1 IMG_0747-1

After so many months, I get to feel the chilling winds and it is about to hit Delhi very soon. So, we decided to start the winter wear this year a little early. For today’s outfit post, I have paired my favorite Zara leather jacket with Army print trouser and black peplum top. I love to travel with big tote bags where I can put all my essentials and believe me, I have carried my phone, tab, makeup, shoes, etc in it and it still looks so slim. This one has become my favorite bag out of all the bags I own.

Hi Everyone!

I got this cute little ‘Bang Bang collection’ bag from Baggit recently. Baggit was the official handbag partner for the action packed movie that has been produced by Fox Star Studios and has been directed by Siddharth Anand, with Katrina Kaif sporting a trendy bag from Baggit. The movie got released recently and I believe everyone loved it as I did. The chic sling is the center-of- action and attraction in this movie!

With an explosive mix of vibrant colors this collection has a select range of slings and wallets that go with the theme of the movie. Each piece in the collection merges contemporary styles which combines functionality and fashion together. This trendy range is high on glamour quotient which you just can’t afford to miss!

This little cutie will look good with any dress. I choose to pair it with my white dress with a denim shirt along with the same color Loafers. You can get this stylish bags in all Baggit exclusive stores. So, give this bag a try and get your own Baggit Bang Bang Collection bag!

Colorbar has organized makeover sessions for all the bloggers by their super talented makeup artists. From their LookBook Oct-Dec 14, I choose to go with the DRAMATIZE look for me which was smoldering kohl-rimmed eyes. I was deeply impressed with the splendid work did by the talented colorbar makeup artist Bhavna on my eyes. She was also teaching me step by step as how to create this look on my own. I always love to put kohl on my eyes and can never imagine myself without it and this look with colorbar products gave my eyes a more stylish avatar.

Dark Feather: WIFWSS15 Day 4 details and Black Dress

Dark Feather: WIFWSS15 Day 4 details and Black Dress

Hi Everyone!

I received this incredible dress from House of Marlyn for wearing it in WIFWSS15 and I’m super excited to share my Day 4 look with all of you.

I wore this dress which is from the House of Marlyn by designer Parnika Jain which includes an embellished crop and a long skirt. I love the detailed work of the embellishments on the top and the high waist skirt complimented the top very nicely. I kept the whole look very simple wearing only one statement Jewellery with it i.e. My ring bracelet. Blocked heels are very much in fashion and because I have to survive the Wills Lifestyle Fashion Week hectic schedule, I decided to pair my blocked heel boot with this outfit which gave the outfit a very quirky look.

On Day 4 of WIFWSS15, we were invited to Dev r Nil and Urvashi Kaur’s show. Below are the show details:

Dev R Nil: A Song of the Wild

The collection is an ode to Bohemia, the spirit of travelling and accumulating experiences that fill our heart and mind. The textures and the embroideries have a traditional touch with hours of love. Mirror work, bead work, thread embroideries pleating and the crushing of fabrics are all but modern yet have a timeless appeal. The hand woven Ikats and silks weave an unusual relationship story with chiffons and georgettes. The layers of various fabrics and patterns come together, albeit in a nonconformist manner.

UrvashiK Urva10

 

Urvashi Kaur: ZIRAN

A recurring fascination with ethnic communities, an unrelenting wanderlust and disparate cultural interest and journeys, all find distinct expression in designer Urvashi Kaur’s ZIRAN. A collection bursting with sub-Chinese vivacity, Ziran finds its inspiration in the nomadic folk of Xining, China, so far unspoken, unseen and unaccounted for. The introduction of a dominant universal trend this season, denim, provides a stiffer quality for structured outwear. There exists an evident dichotomy between the rigid and the fluid. Cinched waists and ruching techniques with Obi belts add a calculated fit to otherwise slack silhouettes, and a relaxed vibe continues, highlighting Urvashi’s affinity for languid lines. Chinese inspired necklines, raglan and kimono sleeves, baggy culottes and palazzos, fuss free drapes with a generous slouch, crop tops, wrap dresses, jumpsuits sided with overblown sleeves, shirtdresses, skirts, jackets sans sleeves, saris, all feed on structural ease for silhouettes, adapted as a nod to deconstruction
