OOTD - A Summer Romance

Well, Summer is here and we CANNOT get into our jeans on a sunny day out. I'd advise, skip the denim jeans and get into a pastel maxi dress. You know what's the benefit of wearing maxi dresses?
1. No More Belly Fat.
2. Hides your fat thighs and legs
3. Makes you look Classy.
4. You stand out from the denim wearers.
5. No matter how thin, fat, tall or short you are. There is a maxi dress for everyone!

I've paired my maxi dress from ONLY India with earrings from Jewels By Naomi and a pearl neckpiece from Sapphire Store.

Top 5 De-Tanning Remedies that ACTUALLY WORK!

Some of us are already back from a vacation while some of us are off to another vacation. Between the hectic partying and enjoying our holiday sightseeing, we tend to ignore our skin. Given that it is summer, most of us want to lay down by the beach or take a dip into the cool water in the pool. The after-effects of forgetting to wear sunscreen is clearly visible on the skin as an ugly tan! Unlike the others, my skin gets tanned very easily even after apply sunscreen. 

I’ve compiled a list of my TOP 5 Anti-Tanning Home Remedies that have effectively worked to get rid of tan within two weeks. It’s economical, works fast and doesn’t smell! Give it a peek and comment below if it worked for you :

Lemon Juice, Cucumber and Rose Water – A lot of websites may tell you to slice a lemon and rub it onto your face. But, the harsh citric acid content in lemon is bound to burn your skin. Take one tablespoon of lemon juice, cucumber extract and some rose water and mix it well and apply to the tanned area.  Let it stay for 15 minutes and then, have a bath. Don’t forget to moisturize!

Multani Mitti with Aloe Vera and Rose Water – One of my favorite face packs for de-tanning and getting rid of all the dust settled on my skin due to the pollution. Apply this pack twice a week and get rid of skin tan instantly!

Gram Flour, Curd, Tumeric and Milk – Mix two tablespoons of gram flour with one tablespoon of curd, one teaspoon of turmeric and one teaspoon of milk and apply regularly for a week to experience immediate results.

Sugar and Lemon Juice – Sugar acts like an exfoliator when mixed with lemon juice. Take half a cup of sugar and one tablespoon of lemon juice. Mix it well and apply to tanned areas.

Coconut Water and Coconut Malai – First apply three teaspoons of coconut water on your face. Let it stay for 15 minutes. Wash it off and apply coconut malai on your face. Wash it off after 10 minutes. Repeat twice a day and every alternate day for a week.


Somewhere In The Dark

From thigh high and knee length slits in maxi skirts and maxi dresses, the in-trend slit is now being incorporated in tops. We’ve always been partial towards the maxi dress since it is the perfect blend of comfort and style. But, you know how you cannot always wear a maxi right? Well, fret not! The maxi length top with front slits is sure to grab the right attention and give you that stylish edge! 

With MARSALA being the Pantone color of the Year, we surely wanted to invest in the right color and in the right outfit. Be it college, a brunch, a concert or a night out dancing with your friends, you can wear a maxi top in different ways with the right accessories and bottoms that is bound to make you stand out from the rest! Wear it with cutout leggings like I wore or wear a fitted white or black skirt underneath and flaunt those toned legs. You can also play safe by pairing it up with your good old Denim jeans.

Top 15 Ways of Dealing with Pre-Examination Studies

Hey you all,
So the reason I haven’t posted much lately is because my final exams are due in a WEEK. 7 days. 168 hours. 10080 minutes and 604800 seconds. *faints while writing*
So anyway, I thought I should take a break from all the stressful studying and do a fun relatable post for you all. We all have given examinations and we all go through the same dreadful studying days.
 So I compiled a few hilarious GIF's that you can browse through whilst you are on your studying break ;)

1. Just one tequila shot and I should be fine.
*1 hours and 12 shots later*

2. When words and sentences don't make sense anymore. Why? Why? What did you think when you wrote that?

3. *3.30 a.m - before your exam day*

4. When you Give up on studying and on LIFE.

5. No more ABCD, ABCC, ABBB or AAAA. That's how you deal with Multiple Choice Questions now!

6. Oohh.. A notification. Let me see what it is. *2 hours later - Whatsapping, Tweeting, Instagramming and Snapchatting away*

7. *Dreaming of walking into the examination room with a chit and not being caught* 

8. So does Role mean Importance? Does Need means Uses? Why do they use such confusing questions?

9. *blank face and re-reading the same line*

10. *Yeh duniya... Yeh Mehfil... Mere Kaam Ki Nahi... Mere Kaam Ki Nahi...*

11. When friend's keep asking you questions to answers you have never come across in your textbook.

12.  1 p.m. - *feels hungry*.
       2 p.m. - *Sits to study*
       2.10 - *feels hungry*

13. Self Expressive no?

14. When Parents ask you why you ain't studying?

15. Well, I know the answer. I read it. It's on the left page - the first paragraph. But I don't know how to answer it. Maybe tell me the first sentence?
