The Trend I’m Loving This Spring | 2018

Embracing the feminine side of things in spring’s is the hottest hue. From stand-out pastel to stand-out polka dot , there are tons of wearable fashion trends in the spring 2018 collections. The biggest trend this spring will be – pastels, polka dots, checks, jumpsuit, dark denim, plastic, sheer, pencil skirt, ruffles, palm beach glamour, 80’s style, and spring wouldn’t be spring without a sea of florals and pretty dresses. In terms of accessories and shoes – the hottest trend right now is fanny packs and dad sneaker trend ( aka ugly sneakers) .

By now, I’m sure you’ve read that Pantone has dubbed Utra Violet as the color that will dominate — but based on what’s been happening on recent runways and within street style, I predict its lighter sister purple, lavender, will be the biggest 2018 color trend. This time trends are nothing if not bright, bold and really quite beautiful. A couple of the trends are casting decisions that reflect the changing definitions of beauty and the target consumer. And unlike other fashion gals who talk fashion like me, I made sure my fashion report is simple, straight, wearable and sharable. Here are some of the trends that I’m incorporating in my spring looks.

With Valentines Day just a little over a week away, I thought I would share a great date night look especially for those that don’t want to wear red.

Red symbolizes love, beauty, courage, respect, romantic love, and even congratulations. White: “I am the one for you”

You may chalk it up to another Hallmark holiday, but there’s no denying that Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to put on a cute outfit and hit the town.

Whether you’re going out on a romantic date Or get together with your gal pals and just celebrate each other or drinking one too many whiskeys with close friends, here is my favorite dress that will steal your heart.

I love this dress which has open knit trim and peplum accent at waist.

From delicate lace to edgy eyelet – there’s a lace dress for every style. White is my favorite neutral to wear year-round, but it works especially well in the spring when you typically want to start introducing a lighter color palette into your wardrobe.

This midi white lace dress is feminine yet sexy. It would look great under a leather moto jacket for a more casual look or with heels for a date night look.

Check out here , they have some amazing dresses for any occasion!

Adding Yoga To My Fitness Routine

Yoga has been my part of my life when I was very young and I have been practicing on and off but it was not that regular when I started weight lifting. This meant that the day I discovered strength training, it became my best friend. But growing up in India, I was also introduced to yoga early and always enjoyed practicing it.

As much as I love weight training, I also wanted to include yoga and there are lot of ways to combine both and I normally alter days.

Over the past year, I’ve realized that not only do they go together, but they also complement each other perfectly. Below are five benefits I have experienced by combining the two: 1. Strength and flexibility, 2. Endurance, 3. Controlled aggression and relaxation, 4. Workout of the mind body and soul , and 5. Better performance.

The main reason why I started yoga was to improve my muscular skeleton issues; especially my knee pain, migraine headaches and also when I discovered my pressure was high. So basically, this year I was focused to do yoga to improve health and strength.

My experience inspired me to pore over the scientific studies I collected in India and how yoga can be both beneficial to prevent diseases and help you recover from it.

My body is not perfect and I’m still struggling to gain strength and flexibility. During your first class, you probably won’t be able to touch your toes, never mind do a back bend. But if you stick with it, you’ll notice a gradual loosening, and eventually, seemingly impossible poses will become possible. You’ll also notice that aches and pains start to disappear. Strong muscles do more than look good. They also protect us from conditions like arthritis and pain ( knee pain in my case)

It perfects your postures . Whether our less than proper posture is due to all the time spent hunched over computers, or if it simply our nature that makes us want to protect ourselves, a few asanas can have you standing tall in no time.

It betters your bone health. Many postures in yoga require that you lift your own weight.

It increases blood flow and it has improved mine. Yoga gets more oxygen to your cells and encourages venous blood from the legs and pelvis to flow back to the heart, where it can be pumped to the lungs to be freshly oxygenated.

Lord of the dance ( Natarajasana) : Begin from a standing position with the weight of the body on one foot as the opposite heel lifts up towards the buttocks with bent knee. The hand on the same side of the body as the bent knee reaches back to grasp the outside the foot or ankle. With the added resistance of the hand gripping the foot, the bent leg and the foot is then lift up away from the earth and the torso towards the back of the room until the thigh is parallel to the earth.

Benefit- Stretches the shoulder, the chest, the thighs, the knee, the groins and adornment. Strengths the leg and the ankles and improves balance.

So far my experience with yoga is amazing and its a great stress buster for me and I feel my overall work performance has improved.


How cute is this Minty Workout Outfit and I don’t know about y’all but when I wear cute workout wear, not only I’m more inclined to actually be active, but also makes me feel more confident in my abilities, which leads to be more focus and motivated.








Travel Like A Pro – Delsey Luggage

I wanted to share some of the top packing tips that I’ve learned from all of my travels, specifically covering some of the harder situations to deal with. When I originally started putting this post together, the plan was to cram everything into one post, but I quickly realized that all this content actually needs two posts, How to Pack for a Trip and What to Pack for a Trip. Packing isn’t my strong suit, as my instinct is to try and bring as much as I can (aka everything) with me. I get packing anxiety (slight joke, but not really), and end up packing waaaay more than I need. After years of trying to get better (and Himangshu aka my husband getting annoyed with me), I’ve finally got my system down, sort of. You might be wondering why I’m covering how to pack before what to pack? Often times how I pack for my trip will most likely dictate what I can bring.

Common Packing Problem -#1: During winter, I carry largest coat, even if you don’t plan on wearing it. Winter is one of the hardest times to pack since everything simply takes up more space. You’d be surprised by how much space you can save in your bag by just wearing your largest jacket to the airport.

Shoes – For the most part, shoes are pretty durable, but for delicate shoes like my flats, I like to pack them in their shoe bags. OTK boots get filled with socks or other shoes inside their shoe bags.

Electronics – Things like cameras, computers and hard drives should be in your carry on.

Common Packing Problem #2: You constantly pack your bags too heavy, costing you a fortune in luggage fees.

Solution: I have to admit, packing under the 50lb limit is not exactly my strongest suit but after years of Himangshu weighing my suitcases after I’ve thought I was done packing, I’ve learned a few tricks that keeps me on target almost every time when I pack.

Tip #1– Balance item volume vs. weight. When we pack, we often just fill the volume of the bag without taking too much consideration of the weight of the items we are adding. With each item, consider how much space it’s going to take up vs. its weight and trust me it works!

Tip #2 – Weigh your bag empty and It’s a simple equation: Amount you can pack = 50 lb – weight of your bag empty.

Tip #3 – Always carry an extra duffel for the trip home, especially if you plan on shopping on your trip.

You are in need of a luggage upgrade but don’t know where to start.

Solution: Chances are you have a hodgepodge of suitcases sitting in your closet at home but every time you go to pack it never seems like you have the right bag. If I were buying one or two new pieces of luggage, I’d start with a large rolling suitcase and a trusty carry on. But if you already have these or are are looking to replace everything, these are my favorite categories: Delsey Chatelet Range.

I’ve been super happy with my Chatelet Hard+ 27″ 4 Wheel Spinner and Chatelet Hard+25” luggage . I have both – sort Journey size and the Long Journey. The top features I look in a large suitcase are durability, lightweight and a 4 wheel upright roll. I prefer to have hard-sided luggage and the Delsey are the only ones that have lasted years without damage. I’ve gone through my fair share of luggage that’s fallen apart, so I have some experience in this department. Before buying luggage, check the empty weight of the bag. I’d try and stay away from any bag that’s over 10 lbs empty.

An extra super lightweight duffel bag has come in handy countless times on my travels. I have nothing but great things to say about this luggages , which can fit 50 pounds of extra clothing and items, yet roll up into a small square for packing. We also love them for long road trips because their soft construction helps them fit into more crevices.

It features a unique brake system that locks the front wheels when you activate the push button to prevent run-away suitcase on an incline position. It allows to roll the bag on the back two wheels and it is made 100% virgin polycarbonate to achieve high impact resistance. Both the luggages are super elegant and innovative and it secures the content from shifting during travel.





You can shop my exact luggage here and here. In the end, I would highly recommend Delsey.  I absolutely love them and they are having huge sale on their website right now ( both 50%) and comes in two colors. So, hurry up over there if you are looking for new bags which are pretty and chic.

Night Skin Care Routine

Skin is our body’s largest organ and it serves as a protective barrier between our inside and the rest of the world and it’s very important to take care of our skin before sleeping. Today I’m sharing my step by step skin care routine for a soft and healthy skin for long run with my favorite products from Exuviance.

Exuviance purifying cleansing gel  – I wipe off any makeup and dirt with The Purifying Cleansing Gel brims with nourishing  to leave skin thoroughly cleansed, soothed, and protected from free radical damage. It cleanses and reduces the appearance of enlarged pores, removes dirt and excess oil, and lifts away impurities without drying or stripping the skin’s moisture balance. It soothes skin inflammation as it delivers natural antibacterial benefits, reduces excess oil production, and minimizes breakouts. Skin is left looking and feeling refined, smooth, balanced, protected, and radiant.

Exuviance Moisture Balance Toner- I use it just to remove the extra makeup that maybe left and this toner is so good. It leaves my skin hydrated, calm and ready for further treatment. Ideal for normal to dry and combination skin types. Helps refine surface texture and gently removes surface debris and remaining residue while hydrating and comforting skin.

Exuviance triple microdermabrasion face polish  – It seals in moisture, gently buffs away dry, dull skin. I only use this twice a week and it provides gentle, effective exfoliation without over-cleansing. This deeply detoxifying, skin-clarifying formula is packed with antioxidants qualities.

Exuviance detox mud treatment   – this mask treatment moisturizes, exfoliates, and lifts away impurities without disturbing skin’s essential oils. I use these once a week and it’s antiaging ingredients brighten and smooth while delivering a tighter, more youthful appearance with visibly minimized pores.

Exuviance Age Reverse Total Correct + Sculpt Serum- Normally I use this after the toner on daily basis and this extravagantly silky serum blends pure retinol and potent antioxidants to help impart firmer-feeling skin, smooth and soften fine lines and wrinkles, and provide hydration so skin of any age can look radiant and revitalized.

Exuviance AF Vitamin C20 Serum Capsules- I use this on my face and also my neck and it focuses on enhancing skins’ barrier repair function, increasing moisturization within the surface of the skin and minimize the appearance of aging signs. This lightweight, silky-smooth serum helps to maintain healthy, youthful-looking skin and correct the visible signs of aging by delivering a new and improved blend of ingredients your skin needs to target skin barrier repair, moisturization, and Anti-Aging.

Thank you Exuviance for sending me so many amazing products!

Let me know if you guys have any of your favorite skin care products for improving skin tone and deal with dryness.






Things I learned in 2017 & 2018 Resolutions

Happy New Year Friends!

A new year is a new start, and with it often comes a fresh determination to find a “better” version of ourselves.

New Year’s resolutions are kind of like a drunk uncle. You know you shouldn’t take him too seriously…but you can’t help but laugh and play along when he comes around once a year.

It’s become popular for people to make fun of New Year’s resolutions

1. The biggest thing I’ve learned is that, no matter what your lowest moment is, there is always a way of getting out and you do get out of it much stronger.

2. Keep your friends and family close. We’re all so busy with work, life, shit happens and we tend to forget the ones closest to us. They should matter the most.

3. Always be grateful. I take so many things for granted. I’m going into 2018 with a positive and grateful heart.

4. Create meaningful work with a great team. I reached a lot of career milestones in 2017. Collaborating with some of my favorite brands was the limelight of this year for me!

5. Be Confident and Love Yourself- Stop worrying about the past or the future but live in the present moment and trust the unknown because I’ve already been through all kinds of shit and now I just gotta step into the unknown to discover new things. 2017 was a year of struggles and self doubt, but I overcame that. This year, I’m already starting out the year by loving myself which is so important.

6. Learn Something New- I want to try and learn something new every week whether it’s a new language, a phrase, food, fashion, about people, arts, and culture!

7. Being Healthy- Meditate and cooking my own meals on a regular basis is a start.

May Your New Year Be Peaceful and Bright, Full of Happiness, Hopes and Possibilities.

You deserve all the magic in 2018!

NYE Party Wear :


First Dress

Second Dress






What lady doesn’t love to look glamorous over the holidays?! There are so many holiday party occasions (cocktails, work events, New Year’s Eve, Christmas days…) that are encouraging us to create the perfect glittering party outfit.

While I wouldn’t say a little red dress is as much of a staple during the rest of the year, come holiday season, it’s an amazingly versatile piece, and style-chameleon for any and every sort of holiday party or gathering, right up to Christmas and New Year’s Eve.

I spent the whole weekend decorating the house for Christmas, and guess what… I’m still not done! lol Lucky for me I enjoy the whole decorating process so maybe that’s why I am dragging it out bit. I also get a little over the top trying to clean and organize everything exactly the way I want it before setting out the decorations.

With the holidays comes the festive parties, and if there’s ever a time to bring out something red, it’s now.

LuLu’s has such a huge assortment of holiday dresses, and I love their selection of elegant pieces that are appropriate for all ages.

I chose this Better Bow Lieve It Red dress because of the gorgeous material and of course the colors that still provide a little glam with the bow. Add a glam bag and ladylike brooch, and I think this look would be perfect for a holiday party that you could still wear throughout the year. If you’re like me, you’re always looking for dresses to wear to cocktail parties than this is the perfect dress for the upcoming events.

There are so many options. Be creative, play with textures, colors and eye-catchy details and don’t forget to choose comfortable outfit because hey every holiday party is calling us for a dance 🙂
