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.
Party season is coming and we finally have a serious excuse to wear glittery, sparkly and fancy clothes without the fear of being too much. Lucky us, this season is all about luxury textiles in amazing earthy or deep jewel tones, as well as sparkly details; as extreme as it gets. And who doesn’t love dressing-up? Especially with clothes that make us feel prettier than ever but don’t have the opportunity to wear whenever we want. Our time is around the corner!
A great place to consider for your party-ing attires, is Topshop. Depending on the occasion, your mood and your taste, there is something for all. From gorgeous formal maxi dresses like this, to mini dresses and trendy skirts.
Other than that, here are some beautiful options from the latest trends to check-out, if you’re going to parties and want to look your best.
The Statement Skirt
A statement skirt like this black sequin midi from Warehouse, is a chic and classy way to make an entrance. Wear it with a simple silk blouse and minimal accessories in order to let the skirt speak for itself.
The Velvet Dress
Velvet is hands down the fabric of the season. It is luxe, elegant and adds value in any form. A wine coloured mini dress like this from Mango, is the easiest choice for a party. With a dress like that, you will look fashionable without much effort from you. Pair it with sleek black pumps and voilà!
The Sequin Dress
If you are ready to shine and like more daring clothes, then this sequin dress from &Other Stories is definitely for you. You will be the centre of attention and for a good reason. Keep in mind that the rest of your accessories and makeup have to be super simple, so the outcome stays smart and stylish.
The Formal Maxi Dress
For those of you who love a formal option, this maxi dress in dark magenta colour from French Connection, is ideal. Perfect eye-catching colour and sophisticated design. You will surely be the best dressed guest.
Who doesn’t love this time of the year ? Our inner child screams with excitement; festive clothing, festive makeup, parties, brunches and family gatherings. The merry time of the year is coming up, and we as girls have to be prepared.
However, Holiday season also means a lot of time spent in the house, as well as many cooking hours in the kitchen in order to please our beloved ones. So, why not please ourselves too in between, by attending some festive brunches with friends? Whether you choose eggs Benedict or avocado on toast, you have to be dressed with something that will boost your mood and make you feel beautiful and ready to celebrate. And what is better than a perfect festive jumper, like the one I’m wearing here!
A pretty festive jumper is the ultimate piece of clothing that instantly yells Holidays. It is also one of the easiest tops to style, as it makes a statement on its own and you just have to keep simple the rest of your outfit and accessories. The best part? These kind of jumpers go with anything; from your favourite pair of jeans, to denim or leather skirts. As you can see, I paired a navy embellished jumper, with a mid-length black leather skirt to add some toughness to the look and simple ankle boots that dress it down for morning time adventures. The white shirt under the jumper, not only keeps me warm, but also creates a great contrast, enhancing the jumper’s pattern even more. A simple black bag will complete the look in the most effortless way.
Fortunately, the latest fashion trends call for sequins, glitter and sparkle. So, a jumper featuring any of these is an ideal option that turns your appearance into a stylish, chic and super festive one!
Now you can enjoy being outside as much as staying inside! Stay beautiful and get ready to sparkle!
Summer has officially ended and autumn is knocking our door. But as the temperatures start to drop, the need to move our style to the cozier side of things is necessary. Autumn looks are right in the middle of transitioning from warm weather, to chilly. Layering gets crucial, colours get warmer and more dark. Many new trends came out for the upcoming season, giving us many ideas for inspiration. But the most important of all, is to incorporate them in your everyday wardrobe, blend them with your personal style and continue to be unique without losing yourself.
This autumn, allows us to use happy colours such as pink or yellow. That’s why in today’s look I chose a light pink mid-length skirt (which is obviously the star of the show). I combined it with simple, yet strong pieces that give the whole outfit a character.
A plain black top worn inside of the skirt, helps to highlight the beauty of it without interrupting the rest of the look. To top it off, I picked a black biker jacket, that balances perfectly the super feminine touch of the pink skirt and manages to toughen up the girly vibe. You can try this combo if you want to achieve an edgier style. I also added a beautiful black shoulder bag with chain strap detail and flat pointed shoes in a striped pattern. As for accessories, minimal is the way to go; the less the better. Concerning makeup, I kept it natural, classic and chic.
Mixing very feminine clothes with a masculine item like a biker jacket, is the best way to turn all your “too” girly pieces into more wearable ones. If you are afraid of skirts like the one I am wearing, through on a jacket borrowed from the boys department and you are good to go. This combination will surely give you a lot of confidence. No need to think this just for skirts though. It works for your blouses too. For example, if you own a girly top and want to create a different approach to your outfit, put some smart trousers underneath and it will look amazing.
So what’s your favourite combination? Let me know and stay beautiful!

There is a lot of excitement behind newly purchased pieces of clothing. But soon after a couple of wears, the excitement dies. Don’t know about you, but I get easily bored by wearing the same outfit again. It is not realistic to buy a whole new wardrobe every month, but to go easy on your pocket, you can create different looks just by changing a few things.
The outfit I am sharing today clearly demonstrates the wardrobe reusability concept. I wore this cute grey tu tu dress on my birthday and reused it on my holiday too. For the holiday look, I paired it up with a tribal beaded necklace from Zara and metallic sandals from F&F. Both are evening looks but look very different from each other. Also, changing your lip colour makes a big difference to your outfit. For the holiday look I wore a deep red lippy which creates a contrast with the grey/black tones. In the other look the pink lip creates a party vibe.
Have you tried creating different looks using the same outfit? If not, then try it and keep experimenting.
We all love holidays, but most hate packing. So how can we take the stress out of it? For me, the entire build-up to the holiday is exciting. It is that time of the year when I get a bit obsessive about clothes. I always leave my packing to the last minute but get my outfits organised in advance. Today on the blog I am sharing some key pieces that are versatile and a great addition to your wardrobe.
Life of a mummy fashion blogger
A maxi dress can easily take you from day to evening. Just swap the shoes/accessories and you are ready to go. I chose this black jersey maxi dress from H&M. Generally white is considered a more appropriate colour for summer but try black with coloured glasses to create a trendy look.
Once again, a very versatile and must have holiday suitcase item. You can easily take your denim shorts from a day to evening look by just changing the top. Swap for day top with a shimmery camisole and you are good to go. I love these Forever 21 shorts of mine. They are super comfy and give me a very relaxed fit.
Boho chic style layered distressed dress
Pack relaxed and loose fit dresses. Holiday dresses are easy to wear and can give you a break from work clothing. I chose this off-shoulder yellow dress from Mango. It was super comfy but creased a lot (which I didn’t mind much on holiday). The other one is this layered light khaki coloured dress. I loved wearing this dress-it was fun and very boho chic.
The key to holiday packing is being organised with your outfits. I am sure when you start packing, you will have ‘I have nothing to wear’ moments. Pick versatile pieces that you can match with other things. Pieces that can easily take you from day to night. Comfy flats are a must and if you want a change, then pack a pair of heeled sandals.
I would love to hear about your holiday packing experiences. Do share your top tips with me. Till then stay fabulous, stay stylish.
This is a very long overdue post. I have been itching to write it but could never prioritise it enough. Being a working mum and trying to juggle so many responsibilities makes me want to go in a dark zone and not be accountable for anything. But my blog inspires me to set my priorities and keeps pulling me back from that zone.
So, the story on the blog today is about my gorgeous embroidered skirt all the way from Pakistan. As you know, last year I was planning my outfits for my brother’s wedding and made one epic trip to India (that reminds me, I have to share my shopping stories). I had a set budget for my shopping haul and wanted to explore various designers. Also I wanted to get something which I would be able to wear in London as well. I did a lot of research on how I want my outfits to be, where I should get them from et al. This one outfit which I wore on two different occasions was not on my list. So the story goes like this – I was helping out designer Jyoti Chandhok at an event in London. I love Jyoti’s work and think she is one of the very few designers in UK who have something unique to offer. It so happened that at the same event I spotted Nabeel’s work. Unlike other vendors, Nabeel had few selected pieces on display. I was immediately drawn to his collection and specially to this lovely Afghan style embroidered cape. I loved the cape and Nabeel insisted that I should try it on. While I was trying on the cape, I had this thought of turning the cape into a skirt. I discussed the idea with Nabeel and worked on the outfit. Since Nabeel frequently travels to London he was able to deliver the outfit to me here. When I received the skirt, it was exactly what I wanted. Nabeel was able to translate my conversation on Whatsapp and bring my vision to life.
I wore this skirt on two different occasions and styled it a bit differently to create a day and evening look. For the day event I wore it with a crisp white collar shirt and a statement neck piece from Zara.
Following on from my last blog post about resort-wear fashion, today’s post focuses on yet another resort-wear look for your holiday wardrobe. Thanks to Apricot Fashion for this lovely Ikat print jumpsuit which I have styled for a holiday evening out look.
Jumpsuits are a great option for your holiday suitcase but you need to wear them right. If you haven’t worn a jumpsuit before, then it can feel a bit intimidating but how you style it makes all the difference. Here are some quick jumpsuit styling tips: Continue Reading
Holiday season is right here and most of us look forward to getting some much needed sun. Sorting out your holiday wardrobe is fun and involves great amount of planning. You have to consider different dressing up occasions and how you can re-use your outfits. Holiday dressing needs to be effortless, yet simple and stylish. Today on the blog I am sharing this tie-dye print Maxi dress from Palanquine. The dress sets you up for a glamorous evening out on the beach. The material is soft and flowy and falls smoothly on you. The fall of the fabric is amazing and brilliantly flatters your shape. The bold contrasting colours add a fun vibe to the outfit. This look is equally appropriate for a night out or for a quiet evening by the beach. Maxi style dresses are a must have in your holiday suitcase. They can easily be transported from the beach to restaurant. Wear this maxi dress with flat sandals and accessorise it with a long neck-piece to complete the look. Continue Reading
Thought today I’ll share my spring birthday outfit with you all. Being a mum sometimes makes you go for very practical outfit choices. But since it was my birthday and I was celebrating it with my girls, I decided to choose something fun and flirty. For my birthday I wore this 50s style midi skirt, layered with sheer tulle in grey. This grey midi skirt is part of the BOOHOO BOUTIQUE collection which stocks some premium limited edition pieces. Do check their new range online which features exclusives pieces for this season. The skirt is gorgeous and I chose the grey colour option to keep my look a bit understated. For my top I chose this super soft bodysuit in black, again from Boohoo. I can’t tell how how comfortable this bodysuit was. Since it was a bodysuit, it fitted me perfectly. I totally recommend bodysuits if you need a well fitted top for an outfit. A special mention to my lovely shoes which I bought on H&M and how well they complimented my look. I was in awe of these shoes when I first discovered them. These are mid heels which I absolutely love and perfect for both day and night looks. Did not accessorise much and let my clothes do all the talking.
