7th Blog Anniversary

7th Blog Anniversary

Hey Guys!

I hope you are doing ok and are safe. A lot has happened since I posted my last blog post: We stepped into the year 2020, my trip to Kufri and experience a near-death situation, Corona Virus, Worldwide lockdown…

I have been more active on my social media and Youtube channel now rather than posting blog posts here. I have realized that the entertainment graph has been shifted towards more to live media rather than blogs and why not if people can see and hear you then why just reading. But I have always found fun creating content for my blog, creating new fashion looks, writing and sharing my thoughts. I started my journey as a blogger and this blog has been there ever since and its been 7 years. So on the occasion of my blogs 7th birthday, I’m here with this look which I absolutely love and HAPPY 7th BLOG ANNIVERSARY to me!



Last year, I posted a picture on my Instagram to celebrate my 6 years of blogging. It was super fun creating that content. This year, I thought why not writing a blog post with a new look and talk about all the things happening around. But first, let’s talk about this look.

It’s a simple look which is great for day time. Paired my cotton maxi dress with a nude leather jacket. I have always love pairing bright colors with basic colors. It gives the overall look a subtle feeling. To finish the look, I have added a jute belt, brown sandals, and a clear boxy clutch. I have also kept my makeup very minimal for the day look (just added a lot of highlighter to glow!). BTW, I have started doing a lot of makeup looks. My passion for makeup has been evolved a lot and I want to do a makeup artist course soon to start my career as a Makeup Artist as well. THAT’S NEWS! Right?


I have been creating a lot of makeup looks on my Youtube and social media accounts lately and I realized that playing with makeup is what I love the most! Of course, talking about trends and fashion is what I always do and I will continue to do so but I’m more focussed now on the makeup. I’m getting inspired looking at other Makeup Artists creating such perfect looks. So, now you are going to see a lot of makeup reviews, makeup looks and my journey of being a makeup artist on my Youtube channel and social media but yes I will also continue to post my fashion looks here on my blog and my travel reviews.


The year 2020 started with a bang called Corona Virus (COVID19) and as it became pandemic, the fear of the disease is getting worse. The only way we can prevent it till now if we keep ourselves house quarantine. For me, it’s been 25 days since I have quarantine myself and to be honest it’s really difficult but to fight this we all have to come together and do so. All of my work, my shoots, and events got postponed and because of that, it’s affecting my personal life and finances as well. But this is not the time to think about it. It’s time to save our country and people by being at home. So, I hope you guys are doing the same and keeping yourselves at home. I wish everyone great health and peace.


I hope you like this post. Thank you so much for reading at and stay safe!

Fall LookBook with Hint of Colors

Fall LookBook with Hint of Colors

Hi Everyone!

After a really long time, I’m writing a blog post and it almost feels like forever. But what is better than coming back with so many colors of fall and a fall season lookbook. This season inspired me to create these two beautiful looks with Shein. Fall is the season where nights are cold and days are warm. Keeping that in mind here are my favorite two outfits for this season. 

Ps: You will find all the links to the outfit at the bottom of this post. SHEIN adds 500 new styles to their website every day! Perfect for when you want to try trendy pieces or stock up on basics for every season.

Look 1:

White on Denim

Both the denim and the top are from Shein. The material of the top is polyester which is my favorite fabric in this season because it is a little warm and thick and is perfect for this season. This is an off-shoulder top which you can wear as many ways as you can. One of the most versatile top I have ever own.  

I paired it with a denim and a sneaker to keep it casual yet chic yet and a very stylish look. This look is perfect for day out or casual outings.

Outfit 2:

The Flowy Yellow Dress

OMG! What can I say about this dress! I fell in love immediately with this dress as soon as I saw it. With its light yellow color to its beautiful flowy structure to its elegant neck style. I love everything about this dress. When I wore this dress and moved around, I felt like a beautiful winter breeze on a hot summer day. Is this not a perfect definition of fall and so as this dress.  

I kept the look pretty simple in this look as I wanted to highlight the dress. Paired my nude heel and jute bag to create that girl next door kinda feel.

The A-Line Skirt

If you’re someone who prefers Indo-Western outfits, the A-Line Maxi skirt can be your go-to ethnic piece this festive season. Pair it with a tank top, a blouse or a t-shirt and throw on some jhumkas to sport a stunning look at your next event.

The Classic Sari

While this is a no-brainer, many people feel reluctant to wear saris as they can be uncomfortable or difficult to carry. However, the market is filled with pre-draped sarees these days, which are not just easy to pull off but look exquisite as well.

The Elegant Lehengas

If you want to go all out with your desi looks, this one’s for you. Lehengas are perfect for almost all festive occasions and can look great on all body types if they’re styled well.

Winter Look in Summer

Winter Look in Summer

Hi Everyone!

If you are missing out those winter boots and overcoats just because it’s summers and its scorching heat outside, then this lookbook is just for you. Trust me, I love wearing long coats and boots for summers too but slightly an alternative way of wearing. There are a lot of cotton overcoats available in the market which you can mix and match with your outfit to give it a chic look.

TPP_4906 TPP_5018 TPP_4965

I wore a basic black t-shirt with high waist pants. I added this Shein check cut-sleeve Double Breasted Glen Plaid Vest Dress as an overcoat just to give that winter edged look. This is a summer alternate outfit which looks glam and also gives that winter cozy feel. I also have been loving these boots since they arrived and I have paired them so many times with different outfit. As white been a universal color which complements every other color, these boots look gorgeous with almost everything. I wore this outfit for India Fashion Week.

TPP_5025 TPP_4946 TPP_4922 TPP_4968

Summers are beautiful but layering an outfit is almost impossible. But if you will add more cotton fabrics to your pairings, it will keep your body temperature cool and will look fabulous at the same time. Thank you so much for reading. I hope you like the pairing.

A Royal Experience: Ranbanka Palace Jodhpur Review

A Royal Experience: Ranbanka Palace Jodhpur Review

Have you ever dreamt of living a royal life in a Royal Palace? Well, I have definitely had this dream and it did come true. My 2 night 3 days trip to Ranbanka Palace, Jodhpur was that dream coming true. Living among the Royals in a beautiful palace and feeling like royalty through the Jodhana experience was an experience in itself.

IMG_20181020_160709IMG_201810250 IMG_20181022_182020 IMG_201810240

Ranbanka Palace is a beautiful heritage property in the heart of Jodhpur which is certified by the Ministry of Tourism, Government of India. This palace was made in 1927 by Maharajadhiraj Sir Ajit Singh Ji from the royal family of Jodhpur which is now being owned and operated by R.K Karan Vijay Singh who is his direct descendant. When you enter Ranbanka Palace you will notice and feel the presence of Jodhpur’s authenticity. You can call Ranbanka Palace a ‘Mini Jodhpur’ itself!

IMG_201810233 IMG_201810227 IMG_20181022_182223_1

The Palace has stunning mantelpieces, armchairs and hunting trophies all around its corridors. The strong architecture of the palace portrays the colonial influences of its time. I get to enjoy the history, the royal luxury, and the flavours of Jodhpur, the culture, all under one roof.

IMG_201810205 IMG_20181020_160718 IMG_20181020_160631

This beautiful heritage property has 90 rooms divided into Deluxe, Club, and Suites spread across the Palace, the Jodhana Courtyard, and the Royale Apartments. The palace also has a swimming pool, shopping experience inside the palace, spa, yoga, banquets, and all basic concierge services. The property also organizes safaris and city or village tours with expert guides and historians.

IMG_20181022 IMG_20181020 IMG_20181021

The first day when I checked in, they provided me the club double room in Jodhana Wing and then the next day they upgraded me to the suite. The club double room was pretty huge in size with a small living area, bedroom area, and decent size washroom and outside balcony. The Suite was huge which has one dining area, bedroom, living room, washroom, and a huge outside balcony.

IMG_20181021_161855 IMG_20181021_161940_1 IMG_20181022_103656 IMG_20181022_104918

As we booked ourselves the Jodhana Experience, we get to experience the in-room shopping with some of Jodhpur’s best artisans including joothi makers, bangle craftsmen, tie and dye artists and earthen-ware potters. I bought a lot of leather product for me and for gifting others from there. Also, we get to enjoy the family recipes from the royal kitchens and are served homemade namkeens, pickles, and chutneys. We also went for the local sightseeing where we went to Mehrangarh Fort and Museum and Umaid Bhawan Palace.

IMG_20181021_101117 00100 IMG_2018102550

We all agree that music is a very important part of Rajasthan and I love how beautifully the palace uses its folk music. While we were enjoying our breakfast, live sarangi music was being played and in the evening we get to experience the live performance by the local folk singers. This is Ranbanka’s everyday music ritual and I was truly impressed by it. The food is super delicious and their Royal Thali straight from their Pachranga Restaurant is to die for especially the Laal Maas and the Mirchi ke Tipore. If you are in Jodhpur, you should definitely try the Royal Thali whether you are staying at Ranbanka Palace or not. The staff of the hotel is very courteous and prompt.

IMG_20181022_182919 IMG_20181020_202707 IMG_201810243

I totally love the time of my stay at Ranbanka Palace and will love to go back and stay with them again. I recommend this property to those who love luxury with peace. This is one of my favourite hotels in Jodhpur so far.


Thank you so much for reading the review. I hope you like it. For booking Ranbanaka Palace, Please log on to:

The Comfort Game

The Comfort Game

Hi Everyone!

My birthday just passed. If you ask me, I’m not a crazy party person. Instead, I love hanging out with friends, eat out and catch a movie kind of a person. So I did spend my birthday like that. The interesting thing that happened was, I’m planning to get a new camera and I almost made my mind for Canon 6D Mark II and when I went on my birthday to buy it, I got totally confused with Sony A7 Mark III. So, I did not buy anything and I came back home totally confused as which one to get now. If you have any suggestions, please help me selecting a camera for my work as I have to get one urgently.

IMG_5197 IMG_5175 IMG_5221

Currently, I’m loving the clothing combos which comes with tops and bottoms together. This is one of the sets that I’m crushing these days. I can wear this sweatpants and jacket set for a jog or as my airport look. This is one of the versatile pieces that I can pair with other tops and bottoms too.

I can definitely say that this is a very comfortable pairing which can be paired as a fashion statement by pairing your favorite boots and a fanny pack. This is a perfect airport look too. The Poly fabric of this garment gives it a very stylish look and also keeps you warm from inside. I totally love the look and the fit it gave me.

I hope you like the look. Thank you so much for reading!

Hotel Review: Mussoorie Gateway Resort

Hotel Review: Mussoorie Gateway Resort

Hi Everyone,

Some posts are long due, and I have to finish writing them and share with you guys pretty soon.  This is one of those travel posts that I have been thinking of doing from really long. If you follow me on YouTube you know that I have done a video on my last trip to Mussoorie and this post is based on the review of the property where we stayed.

IMG_20181007_103332IMG_20181005_134803maap hjsn

If you are looking for a hotel in Mussoorie but you want the hotel to be pocket-friendly, very near to Mall Road with amazing scenic beauty, then you should definitely book the Mussoorie Gateway Resort. It’s a small hotel with comfortable rooms and independent balconies which has great scenic views. The hotel has rooms divided into two floors – the ground and the first floor. The ground floor has independent small porch areas to sit outside and the first floor rooms have balconies overlooking the Doon Valley. The food was decent with a not much-elaborated menu.

IMG_20181005_134857 IMG_20181005_134811 IMG_20181005_135100 IMG_20181005_135154IMG_20181005_150331

The hotel has one Reception area, two dining areas – one is an open garden and the other one is closed with parking facilities. You can see all of this in my below Vlog which we have created while we were there at Mussoorie. You will also get in the room – a television, a wardrobe to keep your belongings, tea coffee maker, a work desk, etc. The staff is courteous and they will help you but sometimes you have to remind them and ask for your food.

IMG_20181005_134939 IMG_20181005_135031 IMG_20181005_135002 IMG_20181006_132059

We stayed there for 2 nights and 3 days. We used to ask for hotel’s car to leave us at the library side of Mall Road and then we used to walk back to the hotel. The walk from the Mall Road is not so far from the hotel and we used to love the walks while we were there. I love that this hotel is budget-friendly and it gives you all the basic amenities that you need for a comfortable stay. The view and the locality of this hotel are outstanding. As it is away from Mall Road it also gives you that peace and ease that you look for when you are on a vacation. We had a great time staying at this hotel.

Its Cloaking Time

Its Cloaking Time

Fashion Trends keep changing with the season. Last year we have seen many different trends coming and going. Many got really famous and I tried it as well and shared it with all of you through this blog. Some of the trends which were huge last year were: Sock Booties, Ultra Slim Sunglasses, Fanny Packs, Sheer Trend, PVC Trend, Ultra Cropped Sweatshirts and many more. Some of them we totally love while some trends we prayed to vanish as soon as we saw them.

IMG_4501 Untitled-1

But the trend that I’m talking about today is Cap Sleeves Trend. When I saw the trend, I totally loved it. To enjoy the trend on me, I got this beautiful jumpsuit with the Cap Sleeve look. The jumpsuit looked super elegant and chic. I immediately knew that this can be in my closet. I always give preference to comfort first when I select any cloth for myself and what is best than a jumpsuit. After I received this, I tried it on instantly I fall in love with this outfit as the fit was great and so as the fabric. I knew this can be a hit at fashion week. 




It’s fun to be at the Fashion Week but it gets very tiring if you are not wearing something which is comfortable. The cap sleeve on this jumpsuit looked more like a cloak which gave it an interesting twist to the garment which was also perfect for Fashion Week because Fashion Week’s for us is all about coming out of your comfort zone and wear something out of the box. With the Cap Sleeve trend, I paired another 2017 trend which was Fanny Packs. To my surprise, the jumpsuit and the bag looked beautiful together and complemented each other. 

Untitled-2 IMG_4426

This look is defiantly one of my favorite looks so far. Let me know which fashion trend you guys love from last year and would want to continue? I hope you like the look and the blog post. Thank you so much for reading.

The Fond Memories

The Fond Memories

Hi Everyone!

Recently I went to a couple of places before launching our own website for HouseofRuda. The website launch took a toll on me and with that, we are also shifting to a new place as our home is getting rebuilt. In all of this, I’m craving for a vacation again but before doing so, I would like to finish my pending projects. I have a couple of things lined up – few collaborations, travel blogs and videos, makeup tutorials and of course HouseofRuda’s work (that’s a lot of work BTW). Don’t know when I can plan my next holiday but for now, I’m looking at these images and cherishing the time I visited Mussoorie.

IMG_4345 IMG_4352-1 IMG_4342

As I usually take 2-3 outfits where ever I go for vacation for my lookbook shoots. You can say I cannot leave behind my work, no matter if I’m on vacation too. As we went for Mussoorie Gateway property review, I grabbed this chance and shot this outfit.



When it comes to styling, I take one item from my closet and pair the rest of the garments around it. For this look, my blazer is the highlight. I paired the whole look around this beautiful pink color blazer which I got from Shein. I kept the look contemporary by pairing high waist shorts and a basic grey t-shirt. To accessories the whole look, I added my golden flap brogues, basic watch, a minimal neckpiece, and my reading glasses. Out of lots of looks, I did in past, I can say this is one of my favorites so far.



This look is perfect for a day out and for brunches or a beach wedding (wink*). I hope you like the look. Thank you so much for reading it.

Black and Plaid Love

Black and Plaid Love

Hi Everyone!

Last year, I was traveling almost every month and after some time, I got so tired of traveling that I told myself, I had to stop! But now as I have taken a good amount of rest because of my health issues and my time required in my work, I am ready to travel again.

Starting with the property review in Mussoorie this month, I am all set to start my travel videos and blog posts again and you will be seeing a lot of them coming up in the coming months. If you still do not follow me on my Instagram, do follow me there, as I will be updating all my stories and my travel experience on my handle.

I am super excited to start my traveling experience all over again and sharing with you all.


I love this summer outfit idea, where I have paired my crop plaid top with the frill waist capri pants. I went to three different events wearing the same outfit and I’m in total love with the look. I wore the same top with the same plaid pattern skirt in one of my earlier lookbook (here).


This look is very chic and smart and perfect for a day out or for your formal events. Plaid Pattern is currently in fashion and if you pair it correctly they look outstanding.


Thank you so much for reading the post. I hope you love the look.
