Haute Tropic

on
4/22/17

Hey, loves! Hope your week’s going well. Summer has  finally set in, with temperatures rising at incredible speed. So I encourage all fashionistas to bring out those crop tops, shorts and skirts because things are going to get real haute here(pun intended)!
In case you haven't guessed, today's ​post is featuring a cute crop top in tropical print. I simply adore tropical prints as they instantly add a fresh look to any outfit. And they are a style must have for summer season. So are crop tops. But when it comes to crop tops, people always seem to need a little bit of encouragement. There is a notion amongst people that for some reason, crop tops can only be worn if you have a flat stomach. And that is so not true. And hopefully today's post should bust that myth.
The crop top I'm wearing is white in colour with cut outs at the waist area and it has tropical prints as well. The prints were the first thing that caught my eye as I was shopping around at the Forever21 store.and since the top is in white, I thought of pairing it with white skinny jeans to add to the look. I also accessorized my look with a pair of dangling earrings, a black hat and a black sling bag. I wore strappy black wedge heels to complete this look. Have a look at the pictures below and let me know what you think about this summer look!

Benefit They're Real Mascara
A jet-black mascara that lengthens, curls, volumizes, lifts, and separates lashes for a spectacular "out-to-here" look. This breakthrough bestseller reveals lashes you never knew you had!
Available at Amazon // Flipkart

Hey, beauties! How has the week been for you guys? I've been wanting to something different on my blog for quite some time now, something that I love learning about and discovering new things in. And that is beauty blogging. I'm an avid makeup fanatic, which is primarily because of my artistic flair. Hence, today's post is going to be a review about the one makeup product that adore- mascara!
I had been hunting for a good mascara ever since my L'Oréal one had dried up. The only problem was that I really wanted something which was travel friendly. And I'm so glad Sephora India has the perfect mascara for my needs- Benefit They're Real! Mascara Deluxe Travel Size. The entire bottle is 3 inches in length so you can stash it in your purse for a quick fix. It's also washable and smudgeproof, which I'm happy with. But the main feature of this mascara is how dramatic it makes your lashes look- almost as if you've put falsies! Have a look at the pictures below and check it out!

Pros:
Travel friendly and good packaging.
Wand is really good
Volumises and lengthens
Easy to wash off

Cons:
Pricing is on higher side
Not available easily

Opinion:
I think it's a really good product, perfect for those who do not want the hassle of false lashes. I love it!  



My eyes without the mascara:

I also clicked a close-up of the lashes one day with my phone camera after coating it multiple times, the effect is super dramatic:
Here's what the packaging of the mascara looks like:

I hope you liked my review on the Benefit They're Real! Mascara. Please feel free to comment below which product you would like me to review next!
Till then, stay beautiful always!

Wild and wanted

on
4/8/17

It's the weekend, folks! And we all know what that means… wink, wink! At least for me, weekend means catching forty winks before Monday hits. It's ridiculous how two days can pass by so fast! Therefore, I'm planning to make the most of my time by doing something wild.

Just kidding!

It's summertime, which to many means it's time to ditch those winter jackets and hoodies. But is it, though? Not quite. Trend forecast predicts hooded sweatshirts as a style staple for summer season. More so the crop type, owing to the warm weather. Major retail brands like Forever21, H&M, Zara to name a few, are already stocked with a variety of cropped hooded sweatshirts. The best kind from this style are the ones with slogan on them. “No chill”, “bae”, “varsity” being the common theme for slogans.
But how does one style this trend as an everyday wear? Don't worry, I've got you covered. The sweatshirt which I've chosen to style today is the one I got from a new brand called Wild Child, launched by renowned designers Falguni and Shane Peacock. The collection is exclusively available at Shoppers Stop and houses a variety of affordable party wear and casual chic apparels. The hooded sweatshirt is white with the slogan “wild and wanted” printed on the sleeve. The best way to style a sweatshirt of any kind would be to wear it with a pair of leggings and sneakers, and that's how I've styled my look today. Have a look at the snaps below and let me know your thoughts on this trend.

Hello, Spring!

on
4/1/17
It’s finally that colourful time of the year which everyone loves- Spring! And what better way to welcome it than wearing your favourite spring time dresses? I’ve read somewhere that Spring is the nature’s way of saying “let’s party”! So, I’ve decided to bring out the brightest colours in my wardrobe to start it off with.
Off shoulder is still one trend that is currently dominating the runways and spring is the perfect time to wear it! Hence, the outfit I will be featuring in today’s post an off shoulder mini dress in blue. Let me tell you, blue is the most favoured colour of this season. Be it plain or plaid, gingham or stripes, blue is seen everywhere these days! And what makes blue so popular is that it can be easily paired with warm toned (summer) colours such as yellows, corals or pinks. Take a look at my outfit pictures to see what I’m talking about!

I hope you liked this look. Feel free to comment what your favourite trend is to try out for spring and I will see you in my next post!
 Till then, dance among the flowers, because it’s spring!



Feminity with an edge

Hey there, lovelies! How's the year treating you? I know it's been forever since I've done a fashion post and it's all because I was prepping up my spring wardrobe for you guys! The trends are definitely changing for the better with a lot of feminine styles coming to the fore so it's best to invest in some flirty ruffles, bell sleeves and off shoulder type of clothing.

For people who love to stick to their roots while keeping up with trends, it might sound tricky to try ruffles or frills when your actual style is leather and ripped denims. But let me tell you, there is a solution for that too, because when it comes to fashion, there are no rules! This is what inspired me to create my next blog post- pairing feminine style with edgy pieces.

For this post, I've chosen to highlight a midi length pleated skirt. Pleated skirts are the flavour of the season and are quite versatile. You can dress them up with a pairing them up with a tee and a statement necklace, or go for something casual like a loose sweater. You can also wear a collared shirt with a pleated skirt for a formal look. Really, the options are endless! I've worn mine with a lace bodysuit and a leather jacket, which gives an edge to my look. I've completed my look with lace up heels and I'm pretty pleased​ with how it turned out. Scroll down below to have a look!

So guys, what do you think? Let me know your favourite trend which you would like to try this season and if there's any other trend you want me to try out next! Till then, stay tuned for my next post!

on
1/29/17
Hey lovelies, hope 2017 is doing you good! Since it is a bright new year, I wanted to try out something different- Beauty blogging. And since I love playing around with makeup, I thought why not share my experiences on my blog? Speaking of makeup, the most vital part is the skin care and for that, I have decided to share the Top 10 most useful drugstore moisturizers available in India that you should try out now.
My personal skin type is dry & sensitive so believe me when I say that I’ve had my fair share of bad choices when it came to selecting what products to use for my skin type. Because products meant for dry skin may not necessarily suit sensitive skin. And not applying the right products can do some good damage & the effects aren’t pretty.
Take a pick from the list of Top 10 most useful drugstore moisturizers that you should try:
1.       Nivea Crème- Body
3.       Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream- Face
5.       Nivea Soft Cream- Face, Hands & Body

8.       The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream- Face & Body
So, those were the fabulous products that made it to my list of best moisturizers for dry & sensitive skin. Hope this post has been useful to those lovely beauties out there that are searching good drugstore products to give their skin that boost of nourishment. And the best part is that they’re all available in India. Let me know what has worked for you and any other “top 10” list you want to see on my blog & I will surely make it happen for you!
Till then, have a splendid year & stay tuned for my next post.
Love,

Pranita.

And I would like to thank all the people who followed & supported my journey till today. I am so happy to be moving on to the New Year that is 2017 with all of you lovely people!

For this post, I decided to wear a red dress       underneath which I wore a lace bodysuit (last worn here). To add glam to this look, I accessorized it with a gold choker necklace, gold cuffs and strappy stilettos. Have a look below and let me know your thoughts on a night time shoot!
