Vatika Naturals Egg Protein Range & Festive Holiday Look

Hope you guys enjoyed watching the video above. I loved the egg and honey shampoo from Vatika. It’s specially good for the winter months. Egg is a natural conditioner and does wonders to your hair. I can definitely feel a difference in my hair texture after using the egg shampoo. Also the egg hair mask was a great conditioning product and made my hair all smooth. If you want to try any of products mentioned in the video then follow this link.


After styling my hair I did this metallic festive look. I am in love with this metallic gold skirt from Oasis. It is definitely an investment piece for my  wardrobe. There are so many ways I can style this skirt for various occasions. For this particular look, I have adopted a cosy style. Wearing this metallic skirt with a high neck jumper makes this outfit perfectly apt for a Christmas lunch date. 
I love wearing knitwear over skirts. It looks very trendy and gives an edge to your outfit.

So this is my last look for 2016. I will be sharing a lot more in 2017, especially my Indian wardrobe. Thank you all for being such a big part of my blog journey. I hope to see you all very soon in the new year.

Christmas celebrations 2016

Christmas has arrived at The Red Notebook HQ in London. My last weekend was spent sorting out old Christmas decor and chucking away loads of rubbish. We also managed to make space for our lovely tree in the Living room. So finally, we welcomed the festive spirit in full glory.

Browsing local flea markets and high street shops fuels my decor inspiration. Every year it starts to feel a little festive for me once I start working on decor ideas. So this year we have a red and white festive theme. Irrespective of the space you have, you can go full out to adorn your abode with festive decor. Today I am sharing some very simple decor ideas that I worked on this year to welcome the spirit of Christmas.

  • Festive garland on the mantelpiece

Decorating your mantelpiece can immediately bring some festive warmth to your living space. Decorate your mantelpiece with festive garland and tea lights this Christmas. I bought this one from Christmas markets at Muswell Hill. Your local Christmas markets are full of festive inspirations and unique ideas – do pay them a visit.

  • Use a festive table cloth

Set the table for an unforgettable Christmas lunch/dinner using a festive table cloth. It’s also the time when your loved dining table will be used the most. So show some extra love by decorating it with festive table cloth and coasters.

  •  Cake stand and Candles as a centerpiece

Cake stands are very versatile. You can use them to serve food or even as a table centrepiece. I have used my cake stand with a pillar candle and a small berry wreath to create a beautiful centrepiece.

Ladies and Gentlemen, get ready for the freezing winters ahead! The mercury has been plummeting to sub zero temperatures lately. Dressing up to repel the chill and still look your best can be a struggle, when all you want to do is to stay in bed. Winters do call for festive outdoor Christmas fairs and markets. So get some cosy comfort to your winter wardrobe and get ready to brave the chill in style.

Todays’ post is all about how to dress warm and still look good. The outfit I am sporting today is super comfy and everyday winter style; something you can sport at Christmas, markets, walk in the woods, school pick up and more. The real winner of this look is the extremely warm quilted coat from Mango . This coat has become my trusted companion to brave the cold this season. To me it feels like a wearable duvet, perfect for my early, dark mornings. Wearing this coat on its own would be boring so I teamed it up with some complementary layers like a cosy grey knitwear from H&M and red plaid scarf from Gap.

Try moving away from all black/grey looks by adding striking accessories like a bright patterned scarf. This is a very laid back and relaxed look for your winter wardrobe. I added some more warmth by wearing these ever so comfortable knee high boots from M&S. These are one of the most comfortable knee high shoes I have very owned. I don’t even feel like talking them off – super snug and extremely comfortable to wear. The cutest bit of this look is my pom-pom beanie from Asos. Pom-pom beanies have a been a craze this season. They are a cute alternative to hats. Style Tip : Wear the hat slightly back to show of your fringe.

The trick to winter wear is in styling your main coat/jacket.  Padded jackets have flooded the catwalk and the high street. It is a major trend this season. So wrap yourself in a gorgeous duvet like jacket and enjoy the festive outdoor atmosphere in style.
