Only girl...

Crop Top: Forever 21
Denim Shorts: Forever 21
Flats : Aldo
Accessories: Forever 21 and Accessorize
Watch: Giordano

I was back from my vacation a while ago but I am posting this outfit now because I didn't get much time. So yeah, for my second day, I picked out this high waist denim with some detailing on the back pockets. I always liked those tie-up shirts so I found this checkered crop top with a white collar. I think it goes really well with the white detailing on the shorts. I feel like one of those country, cowgirls just without the rinding boots and a hat! Haha!

I wanted to be free and in minimum clothing on my vacation. If I were in the city then maybe I would have paired this with a denim T-shirt jacket. On my feet, I got my everyday Aldo flats. They are really comfortable and easy to walk in. The accessories and kept minimal too. As my neck was a little low so I added my favorite 'Love' necklace. Thats the only addition for my accessories from day one.

Check my YouTube video for a better look! :)

The Eagle is Flying

Dress: Forever21
Lace Camisole: Forever21
Denim Vest: Forever21
Flats: Aldo
Accessories: Forever21 & Accessorize
Watch: Giordano

I went away this weekend to a lovely resort. It was so beautiful. Everyone needs a nice getaway once in a while.

I decided to wear this long grey maxi dress with a lace cami inside because its a bit low. I love the whole punk/rock kinda look, so I paired it with a Denim vest. It has these little metal studs on the collar. I didn't want to go too overboard with the accessories, kept it minimal. I am on vacation anyways, need to feel light! The Giordano watch is my everyday watch, you'll probably see that on me all the time. My wrist feels naked without it. Haha! And these Aldo flats are my usual. I wear them at all times, everywhere.

People always tell me I am always in black or in shades of grey. I think that is very true. I'm not a very colorful person. I don't wear a lot of color. So you probably will not see those color blocked clothes on me. Haha! Sorry. :p

So what do you think of my outfit, eh? Like it? Tell me what you think in the comment section below. :)

Also check my YouTube video of this outfit if you want to get a better picture.

MUA BB Cream

This is my first time trying a Makeup Academy Professional (MUA) product. I got this from an online site as you can't MUA products in stores in India as yet. I have been a huge fan of BB creams lately. They work just perfect. This one does all that a BB cream is supposed to do. It is very light on the skin and it gives a great base for your makeup when you don't want to go too heavy. I use a BB cream on days when I hardly wear make up.

I have tried the Maybelline and Garnier BB creams but they were not in the right shade that my skintone needs. They were a lot lighter than my skintone. So I ordered this BB cream in the shade dark. I couldn't try it out because as I said I bought it online. I do find the shade a tad bit light and warm toned but it works quite well. It has a lovely scent to it, very mild. It is gives your skin a nice matte finish. You do have to set it with a powder. For me, it works better than the Maybelline and Garnier BB creams.

As you see it's almost close to my skintone. I think I should have got one shade darker. But anyways, I give this a 5/5. The packaging is quite good. It's a small tube with a screw on top. It fits easily in my makeup bag.

What other brand of BB creams have you tried? Let me know in the comment section below . :P

Chanel Scenario

 Chanel lipsticks, do I need to say more? I think every girl must own at least one Chanel lipstick. And I feel like it is a collectors item. Chanels' red lipstick is a well known fashion girls must have but I went for a brown lipstick. A lot of people think a brown lipstick might make them look old but I feel like it doesn't.

The Rouge Coco Shine collection is not too pigmented and they add a natural looking sheen to your lips. They have quite a few shades and they are very hydrating. I picked this brown lipstick with a red undertone. It's the shade 83 called Scenario. They apply very easily. It has a light perfume scent to it. What I love about this product is the packaging. So sheek! It's small, compact and lightweight. Love the Chanel logo on the top.

I would wear this shade for a neutral look. It's like an everyday lipstick for me. I do want to get a more pigmented brown shade. It would go perfect for a dark goth look.

As you can see it is not very pigmented and has a lot of gloss. It is very pricy but then again it is Chanel. I had to have it in my collection. Will give it a 4/5.

Dior Riviera

While I was in Chennai, I went shopping and got this Dior lipstick. It was my first time trying Dior. These lipsticks have been on a rage on Youtube.

I always wanted an orange/coral color lipstick but never found one which suits my skintone. It's either too pigmented or too bright. I like something subtile with a touch of gloss. So I finally found my perfect shade of coral color lipstick. Dior Addict Extreme in the shade 639 Riviera is a light coral with a pink undertone. It's not very pigmented as you can see. It has a lot of gloss. And it doesn't dry out your lips at all. You might want to retouch after 3-4 hours maybe. It doesn't stay for a long time. But I love this lipstick. It is very spring/summer kind of color.

What I don't like about this product is its' packaging. The cover is very large and I got a little confused on how to open it because you have to pull the little ball at the end and not the gold rim. Why does a thin stick need such a big cover?

Over all I like this product. Go try on their lipsticks, they have an amazing list of shades. I give this a 4/5.

Chennai time!!

Where have I been this whole week?
Chennai baby!!

Got super bored in Mumbai so went to Chennai for a week. Why Chennai? Because I love the food there!! South Indian Non-Veg food is the best food I've ever had. Yummaayy!!!  My hotel room was lovely. The hotel had a rooftop swimming pool and spa which overlooked the city. I spent my week by going to sightseeing spots and enjoying South Indian food. And of course I shopped! :D I regret not taking my DSLR, I could have clicked some really nice pictures.

Chennai has changed a lot in the couple of years. The last time I went there, they weren't that many malls and brands around. This time there were some new malls and a lot of brands. That is so good! The airport has also changed. It's completely redesigned. It is almost like the Mumbai airport. The Metro is still on work. I think once that's done, Chennai will be a lot better. Compared to Mumbai roads, Chennai roads are so clean! Traffic is just the same though. One thing you will not like about Chennai is its heat. It is really hot. It's always very hot. I think the worst time to go there is between March-May. The heat will literally kill you. But I really enjoyed this trip. :)

Oh and if you ever go to Chennai, you have to try Chettinad food. That's the whole reason why I went to Chennai in the first place. Haha!

If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen some of these pictures already. Here are some pictures I clicked from my Android.
