La vie en rose

Start where you stand and never mind the past
The past won't help you in beginning new,
If you have left it all behind at last,
Why that's enough, you're done with it, you're through.

This is another chapter in the book,
This is another race that you have planned.
Don't give the vanished days a backwards look,

Start where you stand.

I picked the poem off from "" cos it really defined us both.

Sometimes you just have to experience the pictures and today I leave you to it with our photo series La vie en Rose.

Being Bewakoof

For someone, if you know me Being sporty would be an absolute alterr-ego that I love to adorn everyday! I'm the absolute opposite. The closest that I ever got close to being a sportsperson was frankly shattered after a few hits and misses when I played for the school football team and my tattered shorts and shoes rather made the neighbourhood aunty apologetic
I'm that girl that must have tried every single sport-indoor and outdoor every time somebody called out for a game, literally! BUT never really making to the end of it.
The childhood might have bought back a several treasured memories thanks to bewakoof. You know what do I absolutely love abut the brand- it's tagline

"Don't let the world  take away your innocence,
  Follow your heart
Be  Bewakoof"

The line genuinely appealed to me because it has no inner derivation really, it's really is about keeping it simple silly! If you really genuinely like something do it with all your passion and it will eventually pave out the path for you.
What encapsulates the tagline even better is the kind of athleisure line that they have come up with. Easy going clothes that take you from your CrossFit to brunch place.

In this post, I will share my love for this easy going vibe of the dress.
Bewakoof is a cool casual wear brand. Our customers are our focus and we believe in connecting with them to the fullest.

We mirror the fondness of today’s youth and intend to sell a unique product line which conforms to latest trend standards at unbeatable prices.

Bewakoof has taken the revolutionary approach to creating products in-house and sell directly to customers. It’s a no-middleman, no-rentals, no-markups business model, which is centered around selling straight to customers online.

15 Days Of celebration with NYX

Makeup id definitely an extension of our personalities-the length of our wings vary and so does our pouty ways of matte creams. With all the rage of Matte Lip Cream I today foray into my first beauty review post.NYX was kind enough to spread some holiday cheer with me and sent goodies that I haven't stopped using every single day(and you obviously know t from my Instatory and Snapchat)

NYX forayed into India with a bang, I remember buying eyeshadow and blushes online through medplusbeauty when the advent of online shopping had just begun. I loved the brand for it's affordability now with the relaunch the prices have certainly spiked up but I cannot even justify the price of lipcream and liners to the quality.

So NYX Cosmetics is one  of the most sought after drugstore makeup brand which has been a pivotal for anyone obsessed with beauty! (that too on a budget, doesn't really imply when one buys this in India though) I have seen at least once beauty blogger or professional makeup artists rave about the brand's innovative products .
Did you know how they pronounce NYX- It's 'niks,' in reference to the Greek goddess of the night. After snooping on the history, I found out how NYX Cosmetics had started as a really small establishment in 1999 by Toni Ko and The brand was initially exclusive on trade shows only.

First up, this product is NOT a liquid lipstick, it's a liquid cream lipstick, a stark difference as this lip product transfers on everything, and I mean everything . Also It applies like a liquid lipstick though and "dries" matte. I quote dry because it never really dries down. It feels slightly sticky the entire wear time, which might annoy me if I were planning to wear this on it's own. It also has a tendency to define the lines in your lips.
But the reason I absolutely wanted this product is one of it's pros. The product is opaque as hell. With just a couple careful swipes (although you have to be extremely careful with the application) one can get a fully opaque color with none of your lip color showing through so the coverage is way better than a normal cream lipstick.

But because of the opaqueness, you can end up applying too much on, that can glob up as you talk, so go light on the application. It would still be as opaque. The lipstick does stay on for a long long time because of it's formula but like I mentioned it transfers every wear hence the re-application can be tedious if you are a lazy bum like me.

This is how it looks on  me. Under the lights, Stone Fox looks black, but is actually a blue toned gray, or Slate color, hence the name Stone Fox. I personally think the shade is perfect for fall and Halloween.

The formulas are exact same for these shades, so I will show you the swatches and how it looks on me.The shades are called (Left to Right-I've swiped them once and then double coats to show you guys to paquenessess)

Berry Strudel is a pretty bright  violet purple with a hint of pink and fairly cool undertones. The finish is absolutely creamy and glossy true to it's name. The colour took 2-3 swipes to get an even tone and is definitely prone to streaking. The colour is definitely a new addition and is one of them that i wouldn't have dared to put it on except it does not look that bad at all.
I cannot comment on thwear time as I swatching these shades one after the another and would do a quick update once I've worn them all.

Rapidly making our way into your wardrobe Femella is a brand that truly understands the experience of guilt free shopping by offering young women styles that are in sync with high fashion at its greatest value.

I remember doing my very first dyeing and block printing on a Femella Dress. Reason being I don't think even as a student I found Femella to be pricy for a fast forward trends I wanted to own. Wearing in this post is a Midi Monostripes dress. I love the vintage feel of the dress Yet, just as I can  embrace the nautical chic vibe the dress absolutely helps me break the stereotype of not wearing horizontal stripes. Well it's got stripes at every god damn angles! I absolutely loove stripes, especially black and white ones and you will find them in bits and pieces in my wardrobe. This is my first dress entirely made out of jersey(honestly not the most figure flattering material but comfortable as heck)
And I don't think they make people look any bigger than they are — I think they're a timeless pattern worn by fashion greats through the decades, and there's no reason us big girls should remain exempt.
You can buy it here

The dress is paired up with my Christian Siriano Oxford heels and my hair is the only accessory I would like to rock with these albeit the glares from Patakha, these amazing pins from KOOVS and clutch from Myntra. I'm sporting a 1920 sleek bob by The Mad Hair Scientist. On my Lips I'm wearing Ruby Woo from MAC.

Truly justifying my vintage feels is my creative partner The Mad Hair Scientist (let's coax him into blogging please )Hence I won't be revealing any of his outfits deets and use him just as the beautiful prop.
How do you like my vintage inspired fashion.I had love to hear your views. See you real soon marshmallows!
