Seeing Spots

If you are all familiar with my shopping behavior, you know I love a good deal (what woman doesn't? ) and I wont shy away from looking in the teen section, which is where I found this cute apron- dress. That's what I call it because I don't know that it's actually called. If any of you do, please do let me know so I can stop making a fool of myself describing it the next time.
Anyway, I think this is the 3rd spotted item I own in my closet, because spotted clothing don't usually appeal to me. But this dress was a steal at 4 BD and I just had to get it because of the fun style and the fact that it would work perfectly with my reverse printed clutch! Spotted pieces are actually perfect to style as a color- blocked look, by pairing a polka dot tee with a bright yellow skirt or a spotted trouser with a red tee. Spots are actually easy to work with and require very less thought to pull off a fantastic look! To go a bit bolder, mix spots, stripes and a bright color!
I personally only work with polka dots for a day time look as I think they're more playful while evenings call for a more classier look.

On a different note, I hate summer. Have I mentioned that already?

Candy Floss + Crop Top lovin'

I've been experimenting with crop tops for months now, and I've gotta say I love them. Wear them to expose a tiny waist or use it as a layering piece, this trend is definitely staying me thinks.
I love baring my tummy while I pair them with skirts and layer it up with jeans . I decide to go all pastel and paired this baby pink crop top with pastel green pants and added in a pop of yellow. I initially went for white, but decide yellow was stronger as a color combo.
Moving on it's getting so hot to take outfit posts in the sun! I hate summer. I'm a winter baby. The only thing good currently is the sale everywhere.
I 'm blank today and have nothing much to rant about so guess I'l just leave it at that. xxoo

Vapiano: Obsessed with Freshness!

 I've always loved Vapiano and the entire concept of the restaurant. If you haven't been there yet, you're missing out on a great deal as I find that they have the freshest food and the ambiance of being in a restaurant with a completely open kitchen and watching the food being made, is quite something else! What's even better is that they grow their own herbs that are used in the food.
Another reason for you to visit Vapiano, is the new menu. I absolutely love the strawberry spinach salad with roasted pine nuts. I usually don't finish entire portions, but surprisingly, I finished a salad and an entire pizza!
So the next time you're in the mall and have finished shopping for your seasonal wardrobe, pop into Vapiano and eat fresh and healthy . And don't forget to try the strawberry- spinach salad! :)

Statement necklace is an Understatement.

If I haven't raved about the fabulous-ness of Jmode accessories in my previous post already, take a good look at this beautiful statement necklace.
I'm an accessory hoarder as you all know and I don't shy away from growing my collection. This bright colored piece is the perfect accessory for summer and can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. A piece like this barely requires any other accessory which is why I've kept the arm candy minimal and the colors of my outfit in sync with the bright, summery color of the necklace.

One fabulous Jmode Scarf- 3 ways to wear it !

Scarves are probably the best accessory a woman can have and spoiling us with choice is Jmode's range of printed silk pieces.
I've been using and abusing my Jmode scarf all week long and I thought I'd share a few ways I've sported it.
1. The knotted Headband - Being so light and the perfect length,it's easy to knot the scarf and wear it as a head band. The beautiful and unique pattern makes the fabric stand out and look quirky and fun !
2. The Handbag's best friend - Tying the scarf to a handbag is another easy way to take any plain outfit from drab to fab! Instantly makes you look classier. Make sure the handbag is structured  and make sure the scarf is by Jmode for bonus points of glamour.
3. The Traditional - Around the neck, as it was meant to be. Then again there are numerous ways to wear one around your neck.

The reason I love this scarf is because it's lightweight and perfect for summer, the prints they come in are gorgeous and have amazing, eye-catching colours! Check out Jmode on Facebook and their website and place your order today.
P.S: They more than just scarves. Keep your eyes peeled for my next post, in yet another gorgeous accessory from Jmode!

April Favourites!

 I love trying out new products every now and then and as soon as I fall in love with it hopelessly, I make sure I shout about it so that you guys can try it out yourself.
Now usually, I’m very skeptical about trying skincare products because my skin is extremely sensitive and I break out if something doesn't suit me. So after a lot of trial and Error and break outs, I've also fallen in love with a skin care range. So I switched from Dermalogica completely.

Let’s talk about my love affair with these guys…
·        Maybelline Dream Sun: I’m a huge fan of contouring and I look for matte bronzers during winters and the ones with a subtle shimmer for summer, to really make my skin glow. This is the ultimate everyday bronzer for me! It’s got 3 colors so I use the lightest shade under my eyes and on the top of my cheek bone and blend the medium and  darker shake right across my cheeks and on the corners of my nose. I love the soft shimmer and how my face glows in the sunlight!
·        Bare Minerals loose powder and Mineral Veil: I've switched from Benefit’s Oxygen Wow compact to this loose powder by Bare Minerals. I have combination skin and I hate it when My T zone gets oily! At first, I was reluctant to buy it but the store looked promising so I thought I’d buy it to test it out. The sales lady also suggested I try the mineral veil, which is a pink translucent powder that you simply dust on your face after your makeup application. In an impulse I purchased the jumbo power brush and guess what? These 3 guys have become my favorites! My skin stays matte for longer and I barely need touch ups! The mineral veil is my favorite among the lot and I really do vouch for it!
·        Gosh Lash Growth Serum: I’ll donate my entire shoe collection to the woman who doesn't want longer lashes. We all want beautiful, thick and fuller lashes and I decided to give this bad boy a chance. It was yet another impulse buy at Boots and although it promises fuller lashes in 2 weeks, I've got to be honest and say that it took longer than that. I've definitely seen some improvement and new hair growth in about a month. I apply this with the wand both on my upper and lower lash line before I go to bed and after being patient with it, It earned a spot on my favorites. Now this product comes with a mascara that helps in the growth too, so I’m definitely going to try that out as well!
·        Eucerin: This product was recommended to me by my dermatologist and although I started out with Eucerin’s dermopurifier range first, I've tried out almost all of the products they have and I absolutely love it. I especially love the ‘even brighter’ range that helps reduce pigmentation. I've been using the dermopurifier cleanser and the day and night crème from the EB range and I have to admit that my skin looks and feels so much healthier now!
·        Maybelline: I’m a sucker when it comes to kohl and eyeliner as you guys know and I love my white liner so much that I wanted a rich gold as well to add into my highlight kohl collection. The chromatics range from Maybelline is SO GOOD, you will want to buy them all. The color is extremely intense and upon application, it’s so smooth and rich, the color shows from a distance. I even got my friend in Qatar to buy it and she loved it. Even if all your other make up wears out after 8 hours, this will stay on until you wash it off! I highly recommend this.

So that’s all this month. I hope you guys try out some of these and give me your thoughts on them. I hope you love them as much as I do! Until the next update then!
