When asked in an interview about the Lakme collaboration she said ” Lakme India approached us for this exciting collaboration. Their new line of lipsticks is enriched with Argan oil – which they aptly call ‘liquid gold’. Personally, I love when make-up products come with the beauty benefits of essential oils.

This is when we live✨

img_20170128_130434

 

There is magic in mornings , in white mist.

And green suns.

The eager buzz of bees , the coffee aroma.

Mating with my senses there is a knowing in it .

An activation.

When all is silent , all serene.

The rest of the world bound is Slumber’s sheet.

It is at this aboriginal hour , that a man can wake

And dream at the very same time

– this is when we live ❤

How we stole from Men !

giphy.gif

When it comes to fashion , women surely have a lot more diversity that men ! But we cannot deny the fact that a lot of the trends in women fashion is inspired by Men’s daily styles too. In fact women have been using so many outfits of men and rocked the casual feminine look , be it on the ramp or casual street style ! Well borrowing a man’s shirt or his trousers does not mean to literally wear it the way men do. It’s actually all about the playing with the contrasting colors and proportions. Frankly if you ask me , when it comes to comfort , oversized shirts or hoodies surpass our everyday pjs anyday ! As a matter of fact i shop from the men’s collection too , i mean i see it as options getting doubled ! Who wouldn’t want that ?

So , i have pulled out few outfits combined with both men and women fashion which one could easily carry with comfort and poise ! Ofcourse you gotta take care of the attitude for yourself 😛

  • BOYFRIEND SHIRTS : This is literally the staple clothing in a man’s wardrobe which we have borrowed proudly ! We love it for its appeal and how versatile it is. The fit is looser and easy . They are so easy to wear over anything , Jeans , skirts , trousers , shorts . I recently paired a classy white boyfriend shirt with front open in contrast with a bralette and a mid skirt. Got a lott of compiments 🙂

  • BOYFRIEND JEANS : Now this is arguably the best menwear inspired clothing ever. No other clothing is the world could make a woman look so sexy yet chic. We all know how irritating it can be at times to wear those skinny jeans through which you have to wiggle your way out. Taddaaaa ! Boyfriend jeans fit you in the right way yet gives you all the comfort you need.

68943da44363bc246e47af89bd3cf0f7f6b9cfc3b9a3483cdb0f00abb4beed17

  • BLAZERS : Originally blazers were brought by men in the fashion industry yet women today seem to totally rock them way better than the dudes ! Be it in the workplace or a casual girls night out ! They are in and for good !

  • LOAFERS : Borrowed from men’s footwear style these comfortable shoes have become a part of almost every woman’s life now. They offer a great blend with style and sophistication. And the best thing about these shoes are that they go with almost everything. Be it you all suited up or dressed in the most feminine manner.
  • CHINOS : Chinos are definitely one of my favorite attires too. They are so comfy and light weighted. Also , they are classy with a well tailored fit. Even though it gives a very elegant look but they can be paired for a casual attire too.
  •  5d35ecc7261b7db47626078b07190dbe5281f552a108f7116916d9f6427afad7
  • OVERSIZED SWEATERS/PULLOVERS : Now be it your Father’s or your Husband or your lover’s , you cannot deny to the fact that there is no woman who does not like a sweater or even a sweater two times larger. I frankly do that all throughout winter 😛 See how you can wear the oversized sweaters in a much cooler way in the streets as well.

  • BIG DIAL WATCHES : The days are gone when only men used to wear big dial watches and women stuck to sleek looking feminine watches. Now women are opting for big dial watches in bulk. These watches have literally become a fashion statement at award shows , gatherings , ramp walks and where not. They are chunky , classy and bold too.

Winter skin routine

Early sunsets , hot coffee , messy hair and big sweaters : Let’s embrace the WINTERS ❤

423c6745481918cbeb0c2b7838117599

 

Winters are my favorite seasons among all ! I mean how amazing does it feel to be wrapped around your cozy blanket early in the morning and sip some hot brewing coffee right? Oh ! yeah also , reading my current read called ” Not without my daughter ” by Betty Mahmoody . Cold winter mornings , coffee and this book literally makes my day . Well enough of what i do , let’s come back to soul agenda of writing this post.

Winters , as beautiful it is , brings to us a lot of winter blues too. Specially when it comes to taking care of our skin.The winter chill does not seem to leave us so does the winter skin woes. Starting from cracked heels , dry skin , chapped lips and itchy scalps , the list goes on !

Today i am going to share with you some winter makeup essentials which might help you survive these cold days !

I have a normal skin but it tends to get a little dry during winters. Specially after taking a bath. Also , recently i have developed some chapped skin at the end of the nose.

Currently , the products that i am using are :

 

  • Colorbar perfect match foundation : This is one of my fav products when it comes to foundation. I have been using it since a long time now. It’s a lightweight fast absorbing product from colorbar which takes care of the parched skin mainly because of it’s rich creamy texture that acts as a moisturizer too. 30 ml of this foundation would cost you Rs 725. A little expensive but i never think much about price when it comes to my skin 🙂

img_20151216_082345_1

  • Oriflame face perfecting primer : Oriflame never upsets us with its products . This primer helps my skin stay hydrated and makes the foundation last longer. i do not have pores or fine lines so this primer is perfect for me and it comes just for Rs 275.

  • Lakme absolute white intense concealer stick : Although i do not use concealers that much. It is only the times when i most certainly need to hide some flaws.

lakme-absolute-face-stylist-concealer-review-blog

  • Maybelline’s Fit me pressed powder : The best part about using this compact is it’s natural finish + it has a range of 18 shades ! It is affordable , light weight and blends well. But those of you who have an oily skin , i suggest you not to try this compact as you may start looking greasy after a few hours. But for normal or dry skin , this is quite the best one to use .

maybelline-fit-me-powder-india

  • Colorbar contouring kit : Contouring is not the things which i do to my face on a regular basis. I basically decide upon my choice of outfit 😛 . The main areas i focus is my nose and my cheekbones. Contouring is something which needs to be done properly in order to blend in the powder as well as to highlight your areas so be gentle with the brush !

unnamed

  • When it comes to lipcolors , Oh ! trust me i have no limits. Starting from matte lips to glossy ones i try everything. But recently i have been crushing over dark lippies and my favroite is the Maybelline super stay , shade : wine & forever ! This shade enhances my lips way too much 😀

These were the products i use to keep my skin happy and healthy during winters 🙂

Let me know what beauty products do you follow in the comments below? For any queries or suggestions mail me at riachakravarty94@gmail.com or write in the comments and i shall try my level best to answer them 🙂

 

Don’t be white lips and pale face but do breathe in snowflakes ❤

Wear track-pants like a street star !

2e92bd8fd5df19d66bca4146a2b8a480

Ever thought that trackpants could be a part of seasonal trend? Well yeah , if you think trackpants are only to be worn with sneakers then you are so wrong . The way i see it , trackpants are something which is very comfortable to wear , hence can be worn by mixing and matching with different elements too. This Fashion Week we saw ladies wearing gym pants with heels and undone uppers. Color blocking and killing it on the ramp with statement bags . Also to add a feminine touch to the look they wore statement pieces like chokers , geometric earrings and rings with some quirky touch !

Why do you just want to limit yourself by wearing a casual tee , trackpants and sneakers right? Heels , slippers , leather jackets , bags and jewellery are only the few items you can add to your outfit. Little inquisitive , aren’t you? Well then let’s look into it a little more to get a clearer picture to how you can style your track pant / tracksuit in amazing ways which you might not have thought about earlier. Shall we?

  • With a Casual top , leather jacket and a pair of pointy heels

romee-strijd-street-style-new-york-track-pants

  • With crop and statement tops

  • Pair your shirts ( printed or solid) with your track pants to give it in the street style

5a0161189fc4a6ba4a2b5e98800519a6

  • knotted tee and a shirt tied around the waist looks super hot doesn’t it?
  • Blazers too

  • Pair it up with your favorite cardigans : same color or different , its all in the game 😉
  • Bomber jackets maybe?

Before putting money in buying track pants , you should have a proper knowledge about the fit and cut of the track pant you want to buy ! Be vigilant when it comes to pairing the right kind of blazers , shoes , jewelleries too or you might end up making a lot of errors. Avoid wearing chunky shoes with such pants , the floaty pants are made to be worn with sleek heels or boots.

Have fun exploring this trend but do keep it mind that the look should not be shabby at all.Make sure there is no saggy crotch or dragging hem.

Also , just so you know i am not talking about tracksuits from Juicy couture velour like this

If you have these , don’t even think of taking them out from the closet. Put them right back ! 😛 If you want the trackpant trend to take a major step for your street fashion then follow few of the tips above and I am sure you will rock the whole outfit .

Have fun experimenting guys 🙂

EMOJI FASHION : START THE TREND !;)

” I speak fluent emoji “

Love it or hate it emojis are a part of our daily lives now ! They have literally taken over the universe. They work as personality indicators as to how you are expressing yourself in front of the screen. Ever wondered the difference between an emoji and emoticon? Well , after doing a bit of research i found out that emoticon is mainly used sideways whereas emojis are small pictures that expression an emotion .

Emojis is spreading like fire so i guess there should be no surprise that it has started to influence the street style as well. A year ago who would have imagined showing a poop or   a face emoji on the type of clothing you are wearing right? Well not anymore ! Now you can use such emojis on clothes , shoes , earrings , a big medallion on your necklace maybe? Or models showcasing it on the runway !

So no doubt emojis are becoming one of the must have accessory this season. Celebrities like Kim Kardashian , Kanye West , Justin Beiber have been following this trend and making a statement of their own !

Check out these quirky outfits and accessories that are a must for your wardrobe :

  • Now for all the crop top and jacket lovers , these outfits are super cool for you. Make a boring outfit look all playful and interesting by pairing up these adorable tops and blazers.

Every Fashion lover must know about CHIARA FERRAGNI right? Look how the very famous italian blogger Chiara Ferragni has her cupboard filled with emoji shoes. I follow her like crazy , she inspires the youth so much through her ideas in Fashion and style.Also ,  She seems absolutely determined to conquer the shoe world. Have you ever seen her shoe wardrobe? Name it and you will find any kind of shoe in the world. My favorite when it comes to emoticon inspired shoes is the eye shaped emoji on the glitter shoes. She said she loves eyes in general and mostly focus on that when it comes to designing shoes.

Let’s have a look at her quirky and absolute stunning shoes

Although only a few designers have showcased a few emoticon inspired apparels and accessories. I really hope this year emojis emerge into the street style and we get some style inspo from them.  Don’t you think we can be a little quirky with emojis when it comes to fashion? Why not bring some fun to our outfits right?
