Goth & Casual by MAX Fashion

Goth & Casual by MAX Fashion

Hi Everyone!

I recently visited the MAX Fashion store ( http://www.maxfashionindia.com/ ) to select outfits for a blog post. When I entered the store and saw their collection, I literally got confused on what to pick and what to leave behind. The staff members at the Max fashion Gurgaon store are very helpful. They helped me in selecting the garments and actually were there with us the entire time when we selected and thought about the looks. Finally, spending an hour thinking about the looks and going through their whole collection, we decided to create two totally different looks together with the same brand. So, today’s post is a very special post with lots of pictures and two very famous looks which we have created keeping the street style in mind.

The second look is a super casual look which you can wear anywhere. Currently being casual is the new fashion and for my next look, I wanted to do something totally different. So, I picked up the two most comfortable looking garments from the store for my second look. I paired my converse to complete the look and enjoyed the afternoon wearing the light and breezy outfit and shooting in sun. I also love how the polka dot shorts complemented the printed shirt.

Hi Everyone!

As mother’s day passed a few days before, I planned to buy a gift for my mom. She was asking me to get a handbag for her since long time and she has a specific kind of look in mind, what she wanted. I was searching for the kind of bag she asked for, but something or the other, I could not find a suitable bag. 1

A few months back, I created an account at Limeroad.com for fun and to create some scrapbooks for you guys. I always knew that Limeroad sell product, but I never actually bought anything from there. I almost searched every shopping website to find a handbag for mom, but did not see any of them have something which I can gift to my mom which will be also reasonable for me. Finally, I thought to see what Limeroad has to offer. And you my surprise, I found the bag which I can gift to my mom for a very reasonable price. You can also see the handbags available here:LimeroadHandBag

In today’s corporate world your appearance is an important success factor and can contribute immensely to your success.  My passion and interest in fashion and styling has been instrumental and I have been mentoring people formally and informally. I’m also a trained designer who dresses women with the utmost perfection.

Today I have paired my oversized Top with denim and my favourite Oxford shoes for a casual carefree look. This look is an effortless look which is very chic. For giving it a little vibrancy, I have paired some accessories with it and kept my makeup very minimal.

Whenever I pass this place, I always wanted to go inside and take some pictures because this place looks awesome. Finally, we decided to use this place for this photo shoot and I was excited to go inside and explore the place. To my surprise, the place was quiet and very beautiful from inside. I was super happy to find a place where there is no one to disturb you while you are trying to pose for the camera.

I hope you like the post and the outfit. Please leave your comments below.

Product Review:: Sebastian Professional Potion 9 and Shine Shaker

Product Review:: Sebastian Professional Potion 9 and Shine Shaker

Hi Everyone!

As you guys might have noticed that we have changed our blog a little bit to give you guys more information. You will see Fashion, beauty, events, lifestyle and lookbook, all in different sections and we promise that we will increase our frequency of blog posts from now on.

Today, we are doing a review of the latest products I have my hands on and for which I have heard that these are awesome hair care products. It’s the Sebastian Professional Potion 9 and Shine Shaker. I have been using them for around three weeks now and I think I’m finally ready now to review them.

Let’s start with the Sebastian Professional Potion 9. This product is a wearable styling cream.

IMG_8164-1(1)

Price:   Rs. 1400 for 150ml

What the product claim:  Potion 9 is the ultimate versatile styling cream with 9 botanical extracts. It helps restore lost moisture and rejuvenates the healthy look of your hair. Perfect for styling your hair into multiple look with flexible hold.

IMG_8151-1

Application:

Apply to damp hair for conditioned soft movement. Do not rinse. Blow-dry or air-dry for a silky, touchable  look. Alternatively, apply to dry hair for more texture and control.

My Experience with the Sebastian Professional Potion 9:

I have thin hair and recently they went very dry because of my regular styling for events or lookbook shoots. After doing my shampoo, condition and towel drying the hair, I apply the Sebastian Professional Potion 9 to the length of my hair. I normally blow dry my hair, which worked fine with the Sebastian Professional Potion 9, also you can air dry your hair which gives same shine. In case of moisture and rejuvenates the healthy look of the hair, I would say that this product did help my hair gain the lost shine and moisture. They are more manageable now from my past experience. I have used a heat protector before using any heat styling to my hair, but that did not work for my hair, but I can say this cream is working for my hair. This cream also holds my curls for 2-3 days till I wash my hair. Also, if you would want to tie your hair into dun or any other style, you just need to apply the product to your dry hair and it will actually help styling within more manageable way. So, this is great for styling hair as well. Always remember not to use this product to the roots because it will grease your hair and you will get the feel to wash your hair the next day only. I love the soft smell of this product.  I also like the smart look of the bottle and the press dispensing pump which makes it easy to use.

IMG_8186-1

  Pros of the Sebastian Professional Potion 9:

  •         It does nourish my hair and give it a shine.
  •         Protect from heat
  •         It helps hold my curls for 2-3 days till I wash my hair.
  •         Use it to your dry hair for styling and have more manageable hair.
  •         Smart look of the bottle and the press dispensing pump.
  •          Smells really good

Cons of the Sebastian Professional Potion 9:

  •   It is a little pricy product but looking at the pros of this product I think it is ok.
  •   If applying to the roots, it will grease your hair.

Rating:   4/5

Now it’s time for the Sebastian Shine Shaker. It’s a lightweight shine spray.

IMG_8171-1

Price:  Rs. 1450 for 75ml

What the product claim: 

Ultra-light, high gloss aerosol spray. For light but luminous mirror-shine.

IMG_8146-1(1)

Application:

Spray into dry hair for a mirror-like shine finish. Use with hot tools for luminous shine and to protect hair from heat. Light-touch radiance.

My Experience with the Sebastian Shine Shaker:

Honestly, I did not use this product much, but the stylist told me that after I finish styling my hair, spraying a mist of the Sebastian Shine Shaker will add more shine and protect my hair from pollution and harsh sun rays. I have tried this product to my hair and it did add a little shine but I felt like washing my hair on the second day as it made my hairs a little greasy. The product says its a lightweight shine spray, but I believe because I used so many products (shampoo, conditioner and the Potion 9) before using it, that is why it happens. However, I love the smell of the spray and it is easy to apply because of its sprayer which spray a mist and doesn’t spray in one place. I have heard that this product worked very well for others.

IMG_8192-1(1)

Pros of the Sebastian Shine Shaker:

  •  Lovely smell
  •  Easy to apply
  •  Protect from heat

Cons of the Sebastian Shine Shaker:

  •  It made my hair look greasy.
  •  Expensive for 75ml product.

Rating:  3/5

I’m waiting for my potion 9 to get over so that I can start using Shine Shaker. Both products together does not work for me.

Feeling Relaxed:: Spa Luscious Week

Feeling Relaxed:: Spa Luscious Week

Hi Everyone!

This post was pending for so long and finally I’m writing about it and trust me, I’m feeling very good to let you know about the spa service that I had a few weeks back. Spa is the best way to keep you healthy, calm and glowing! And to make us feel happier and content, Pachouli Spa & Wellness Centre has organized “Spa Luscious Week” from 24th April to 30th April 2015 and luckily got myself enrolled for the same.

Pachouli Spa celebrated the ‘Spa Luscious Week’ for one week where they gave Body Spa along with Hand & Foot Reflexology, steam & shower at flat Rs. 1299/‐. Also, 20% off on all other beauty services during that week and complimentary gift from Pachouli. I cannot be more than happy to try their services and review about it when it is coming in so affordable prices.

Feeling Relaxed:: Spa Luscious Week

I went to their Pusa road center where you will get a free parking. I took the lift and entered the third floor where the Pachouli Spa & Wellness Centre is. The first look of the center impressed me with light music and the spa aroma. At Pachouli Spa & Wellness Centre they have salon services, where you can get your beauty regimes done like haircuts, blow dry, makeups, manicure, pedicure, etc. They have separate rooms for spa in which you have the steam & shower place as well. They have a wellness center as well where you can get the treatments for obesity, thyroid, etc.

Feeling Relaxed:: Spa Luscious Week

Pachouli Spa has various Spa services which include Thai Traditional Therapy, Classical Swedish Therapy, Balinese therapy, Shiatsu Therapy, Shirodhara, Abhyanga, Kati Vasti, Pizi Chill, Pinda Sweda(kizzi), Accupressure Threrapy, Marma, Udvartanam, Aroma Fusion Therapy, Hot stone Therapy, Deep Renewal therapy, Pachouli Intuitive Therapy to choose from. When I visited there the wellness Expert, Ms. Preeti Seth, also the owner of Pachouli Spa & Wellness Centre took personal care of me. I thought she was so concern because I’m a blogger, but later I realized that she was actually looking after each of her customers effectively. This makes me recommend this spa even more. When I asked her which spa will be good for me, she immediately asked my sun sign which was very unusual. Then she explained that this relates to the person’s mood and liking and it helps them selecting the aroma. So, finally I went with the Vanilla aroma for me which she suggested.

Feeling Relaxed:: Spa Luscious Week

I went for a full body spa, head massage and steam bath. After I had the two hours therapy and a steam bath, I was feeling so relaxed and refreshed. While talking to me, Preeti explained “As a wellness expert, I recommend to have a body spa once in every month as it completely rejuvenates you with all the healing treatments. Also, it acts as a stress buster therapy, which makes you feel younger, calm, healthy & vibrant.” I will definitely go there again and enjoy their treatments.

Future of Fashion in Mobile world

Future of Fashion in Mobile world

Hey Everyone!

In this new era of our world, we are mainly relying on the internet or our mobile to stay updated. Trust me, being a fashion blogger and a working girl, I feel like it is very hard for me to go to different stores and shop or keep myself updated with the latest news and fashion trends. I’m actually living on my phone and I don’t know what I would have done without it. Sometimes my mom also screams at me as she always sees me typing or doing something on my phone.

1

I love the way how the internet, especially on Mobile changed our world. We can use it anytime and on the go. Recently my friends went for the Dubai trip and because of my overloaded work pressure, I could not be a part of that trip. But thank god some genius invented the internet and because of it, I can be a part of that trip. My friends sent me their pictures and videos and I was so happy. It was like having vacation while I was working.

2

Just like how mobile is saving us everywhere else, it itIt is also revolutionizing the way we shop! The world of fashion is finding new business ways and all thanks to the new technologies. At first the ecommerce platforms came which managed to change the way of purchasing items. Now, due to the vast and successful adoption of smart phones, many online retailers have started their mobile application where you only have to log in and buy their products. The physical stores also after seeing the acceptance of this type of initiative are starting to introduce all sorts of mobile tools in their establishments in order to improve their customer purchase experience. This is something very cool and I usually do mobile shopping. This is one of my favorite ways of shopping as well. Whether I am in the office or waiting for my friends or I am at a boring party, mobile shopping applications really keep me busy.

Fashion retailers like Myntra.com have put great effort in creating amazing mobile shopping applications which are user friendly. We all know that Myntra is India’s one of the most trusted online retail store where you can get everything related to fashion. I personally love shopping with them because of their super fast delivery and a huge range of products to select from. From the time I got to know that Myntra has started their mobile application, I just love it even more. Shopping always makes me happy, but now I can be happy anytime, anywhere. So, all my shopping crazy readers try the Myntra  mobile application and feel the happiness yourself. This application is really a must have in everyone’s mobile.

Recently ASUS launched their new mobile called Asus Zenfone 2 which is an upgrade of the Zenfone5. Looking at this new gadget, I cannot hold myself from reviewing it and spreading the word showing the new technologies it is equipped it.
If we look at the ASUS Zenfone 2 specifications, the quad-core Intel Atom Z3560 CPU is the most impressive unit in the phone specification, which works great with a huge 4GB of RAM to deliver the immerse gaming experience. For storage needs, you get an internal memory of 32GB and users can further enhance up to 64GB via a MicroSD card.2
The ASUS ZenFone 2 is not only thin, but also has the best grip thanks to its ergonomic arc design.

4
The Zenfone 2 comes with a 13MP autofocus rear shooter with an LED flash and a 5MP wide-angle front snapper, which both are powered by ASUS PixelMaster technology. Talking from the eye of a fashion blogger, I love taking selfies and ASUS Zenfone 2 makes it even easier. With its 5 megapixel front camera, you can actually get awesome picture quality which many smart phones do not have. The phone comes with the pixel Master which helps capture low light clear pictures and videos. The front camera’s lens has an 85° wide-angle, enabling you to capture more than ever before. The new Panorama Selfie mode that allows you to take a 140° selfie so that everyone can be part of the shot.
