A Memorable Trip: Maldives

A Memorable Trip: Maldives

Hi Everyone,

Right now, I’m in a very happy mood because I’m going to share a very memorable trip details with you guys. We visited Maldives in the month of March. I know we are a little late uploading this blog post but coming back from that place then sorting our vlog and doing some more trips took all of our time. Nevertheless, I’m posting and sharing this with all of now.

After I got married, this was my first aboard trip. Earlier, we planned for this trip in February but then we decided to go there on my birthday so we froze it for March. I always wanted to go to a beach destination where it would be peace and relax. Bealieve me, Maldives is a perfect destination for it. We started our journey on 10th March night for a 4 night 5 days holiday and booked The Sun Siyam Iru Fushi Resort. As we are also covering travel on our blog and channel, we decided to capture all the moments for our Vlog and pictures for our travel post. We reached Delhi International Airport and we somehow managed to grab our plane. The immigration took us so long that we were almost about to miss our flight. We traveled through Air India till Maldives International Airport i.e. Male which took around 5 hrs 30 mins. At the international airport there were two representatives from the hotel who helped us board our domestic flight till Ifuru Domestic Airport and from there we took speed boat ride to reach our resort which took us around 1 hr 30 mins more.

When we reached the domestic airport, we have been escorted by Mr. Saiya who was our personal butler for the rest of our stay. After reaching the resort and looking at the breathtaking view of the whole island, Saiya gave us a small brief of the hotel and took us to our villa via a buggy. We booked Horizon Water Villa which was situated above the sea with an incredible view of the ocean.

The room was perfect for me and Saurabh with a comfortable double bed, a small lounge area inside the room, a huge washroom with one shower area, bathtub, two washbasins and all kind of toiletries. In front of our bed, there was a huge balcony with the ocean view with Jacuzzi and a way to step down to the sea for snorkeling. We have also covered our whole room tour in our Vlog Part 1:

We absolutely love our room, the unbelievable view, the whole beauty of the island and the resort. This was one of my dream destination which I was living. The first day we relaxed by chilling in our Jacuzzi while watching the sunset, walking on the beach and eating pasta at their Italian restaurant. The resort has fifteen different restaurant and bars, two swimming pools, recreation center, dive center, Spa, a boutique for your shopping, water sports, etc. In short, it was a small island but you will find all kind of necessity and luxury available.

The second day was my birthday which we spent by going for snorkeling after our breakfast. We had so much fun doing snorkeling where we covered two different islands and saw the beautiful marine life. The underwater life is so serene and beautiful that you will feel you are in another world. Upon our return, we had our three-course dinner at The Trio Restaurant and Saiya organized a beautiful birthday cake for me at the restaurant. It was the best birthday ever!

The next day we realized that we got bad sunburn because of the snorkeling. So, we decided to enjoy our stay and to do few shoots at the resort. Our room also got upgraded from Horizon Water Villa to Horizon Sunset Water Villa. For dinner, we tried the Indian restaurant at the hotel and we love the food. The chef personally asked us how do we like our spices and he made our dishes accordingly. The fourth day we went for Kayaking and we enjoyed thoroughly. You can see all the details from second till we came back in our second part of our Vblog:

I would personally recommend you to stay at The Sun Siyam Iru Fushi, if you are traveling to Maldives because the staff is very humble and helpful, the resort is exotic, amazing breakfast and lots of restaurants to choose from (Indian restaurant was our favorite), lots of water sports activities to do and most importantly its peaceful and quite.

Mixing: AIFWAW17 Day 4 StreetStyle

Mixing: AIFWAW17 Day 4 StreetStyle

Hi Everyone!

I’m back with the last look what I created for the last season of Amazon India Fashion Week. This is one of my favorite look out of all the three I created (here are the other twos: http://www.fashionbyruda.com/glitters-aifwaw17-day-3-streetstyle/ & http://www.fashionbyruda.com/fusion-saree-aifwaf17-day-2-streetstyle/). This look has a masculine feel with the chic touch. I feel that this is a perfect look to support feminism as frankly I consider myself a feminist and I do not see this is anyway bad. I feel that woman in our society should have a better place (which are getting slowly) and should feel free to live like they want.

The look I have created for the last day of the AIFW was with strong silhouettes in which I used the mixture of cotton and leather. It was more of a bossy urban chic look with the detail of the bow tie. I picked up the bow tie from a men’s section of Van Heusen. The fun of mixing and matching truly goes to another level when you know your pairing will look spectacular.

I paired the look with a white long shirt with the midi leather skirt to hide the length of the shirt. I used my boot’s belt to tie around my waist to give it a more defined look. The belt has metallic details which made the look a bit bolder. The bow tie, ponny tail hair and high ankle boots perfectly matched the outfit and looked the way I imagined it will be. #SuperHappy

Well with this look the AIFW Street Style looks are over for the last season. I cannot wait to style my outfits for the coming season where I will try to prepare something more out of the box and unique. I hope you like the pairing and the look. Thank you so much for reading.

Hi Everyone!

Do you guys know what is my favorite part of dress up?  Well, it’s always the shoe selection. If I’m shopping and I see a beautiful pair of my size sitting on a rack, I just cannot resist myself from getting another pair of shoe. For this look, I started my pairing with my shoes. I went from bottom to top to create this look.

I was going through Reliance footprint website when I saw these lovely black pair of sandal. It looks chic with the ankle-length zipper closure with block heels and gold details. The shoes look perfect for me and I immediately ordered them. When I received them, they fit me so well and they are super comfortable too. I was actually looking for black block heels for long which I can pair easily with everything and this shoe solved my problem. These can go with any Indian wear as well as western wear too. I was going through Reliance Footprint’s website and they got various different options online as well as on their store.

For this look, I paired my strap pattern shoe with the floral black dress to compliment the shoe. Keeping the look minimalistic, I added a silver bag and my diamond ring. This is a perfect date look and a shopping look. I do not like too much of everything and keeping things neutral and minimal looks classy.

IMG_0061These shoes actually made me survive the entire day on heels and became one of my favorites now in my closet. I think you should check out Reliance Footprint online (here) and offline as well. I’m also leaving the link of the shoes I’m wearing below at the outfit section in case you would like to have a look. Thank you so much reading. I hope you like the look.
