Can't Wait For The Next Time!

by , in
It’s hardly been one month that I am back from my honeymoon (to Thailand) and here I am, pining for some travel plans yet again!
The idea of seeing new places and journeying to exciting lands always held a magical appeal for me since I can remember. But the travel bug has sunk its teeth in real hard only in the last six years or so of my existence.
So much so that, not only the adventure of exploring new territory, but even the fun of revisiting familiar places excites the traveloholic in me!
I have been having midnight cravings of let’s-book-tickets or let’s-look-up-hotels and hence, I have been contributing highly to the increase in the number of page views of the travel websites.
My husband, of course, thinks am crazy and turns a deaf ear to my wanderlust-y pleas.

So, to satiate this incessant thirst for new vacations, I thought of sharing a holiday outfit post from my last trip. :)






[Maxi dress: 109F | Sling bag: Borrowed from sister | Pearl chocker: BK Market, Kolkata | Earrings: Accessorize | Watch: Tommy Hilfiger | Polka dot wedges: Platinum Mall, Bangkok]


Of course, maxi dresses are a must-pack item while going on a summer holiday. And the one I had taken along with me proved perfect for a day-long shopping spree in Bangkok!

If you are on the lookout for fun summer dresses, pretty maxi dresses or even cool tops and tees to brave the sweltering heat in style, then don’t forget to check out the best deals in clothes & accessories offered by the couponing websites! They have the best stores & brands on board and that too, at unbelievable prices!!!
For example, you can buy a similar outfit all at one place, right from clothes to bags to shoes and accessories and also avail the amazing deals that such websites offer!

I am surely gonna check out the Spicejet coupons at CupoNation while booking for my next holiday! What about you?

Mix It Like No One's Watching! {Review: Limeroad.com}

by , in
Monotony is a dangerous thing.
Wherever it settles, it takes away a part of our happiness, tugs at the strings of satisfaction and generally makes Life a bit boring.
Whenever I feel any part of my life becoming monotonous, an alarm goes off in my head. Being a creative soul, I'm always on the lookout for something new & exciting.........and monotony does not fit in my scheme of things anywhere.
So, here I am, planning to start new projects, take up new hobbies, see new places and experiment with new fashion!

Case in point - I'm trying out my hand at print mixing (which I'm not very confident with and hence, don't generally attempt).........but giving it a fun twist! Who said we can't mix the prints on our clothes along with those on our accessories? :)








[Banana print tee: Platinum Mall, Bangkok | Pink denims: Shoppers Stop | Printed canvas sling bag: c/o Limeroad.com | Leopard print wayfarers: Zara | Tassel earrings: Street shopping, Bangkok | Floral watch: Platinum Mall, Bangkok | Black/gold sandals: Platinum Mall, Bangkok | On my lips: Pink Hotmail, Colorbar]


This abstract print sling bag was sent over by Limeroad.com and the moment I saw it I knew I had to explore its fun side & pair this with other prints, instead of a boring solid colored outfit. Hence, the graphic meets quirky meets animal print mix!!! :)

Limeroad.com is a fashion-lover's paradise. If you have been searching for trendy dresses, funky bags, cool shoes or fun accessories, Limeroad has all that and more in store for you! Their vast range of well-curated clothes & accessories will leave you spoilt for choice, while you can also get tips on how to style the items or how to put together outfits from the numerous Limeroad scrapbook looks made by contributers or members of the Limeroad Style Panel.
What's more, Limeroad provides one of the most efficient customer service that I have seen. The ordering process is simple & hassle-free, orders are confirmed via phone calls, emails  as well as text messages and delivery is pretty fast too!
All in all, Limeroad.com is one shopping portal I would definitely recommend for the trendy fashionistas out there. You can also download the Limeroad mobile app and shop away to your heart's content wherever you are!


I have bookmarked quite a few other tempting stuff on Limeroad and I would better rush before someone else grabs them!!!

{Kolkata Konnect} Launch Of Amrapali Gold Boutique

by , in
Any Indian woman (actually even Hollywood celebs) who has impeccable choice in ethnic jewellery swears by jewellery brand Amrapali.
Amrapali Jaipur is renowned for its exquisitely crafted ethnic jewellery, be it silver or gold. Kolkata was lucky enough to have an Amrapali store in Forum Courtyard, Elgin Road where one could find a plethora of gorgeous silver & gold-plated jewellery for every style, occasion or use.
Beautiful jhumkas jostle for  space with chunky rings, elaborate necklaces rub shoulders with stone-studded bracelets - all unique & designed to tell a hundred stories.

But, Kolkata just got a style upgrade when Amrapali launched its gold boutique as an extension of the store at Forum Courtyard. Dazzling gold jewellery, which are nothing less than pieces of art, filled the shelves and lined the counters as we stepped into what looked like a jewellery wonderland.
Like the proverbial kid in the candy store, we ooh-ed & aah-ed at the exquisite necklaces, elegant earrings, magnificent bangles and a lot more!

The boutique was launched by the gorgeous actress Lisa Ray who looked stunning in some royal pieces of Amrapali jewellery. She sashayed in, posed, laughed, talked, answered questions, asked questions and floored us with her down-to-earth attitude! Total #girlcrush <3


And she obliged us all with pictures & a smile! :)

I am as mesmerized by Amrapali's silver jewellery as by their gold ones!

So, those of you in Kolkata looking for gold jewellery that's traditional, yet with a contemporary look - visit the Amrapali Jaipur showroom at Forum Courtyard and prepare to fall in love over & over again!

This Mother's Day, I am collaborating with Jabong.com to help you out with your what-to-gift-my-Super-mom woes. We bring to you a carefully curated list of gifts that any mother will surely love! So, go ahead and read on to make this Mother's Day a memorable one for the real super-hero(ine) we are blessed to have in our lives!!!

*****

Help your mom reinvent her style this Mother’s day!
As she keeps celebrating motherhood every single moment with her children, can’t we do our bit? Though our mothers play anchors in our lives, often we forget what they seek from us. This Mother’s Day don’t just wish her, but squeeze in some time from your busy schedules to be with her. With little concern and loads of love, you can gift her something that embodies her spirit and captures her heart. Let May 10, 2015 be the day your mother remembers besides your birthday.

Saree for the special lady!
Gift a woman a saree and see the child-like gleam on her face. When it comes to mothers, saree still enjoys being the hot-favourite gift item. Give her wardrobe a designer touch by gifting this saree from the famous brand Satya Paul. Here’s a multicolor saree available at Jabong.com. The creation stays true to the brand’s name and has a mesmerizing print based on white. The unique combination of blue and yellow is striking as well as subtle, wearable on any given day. Created from georgette it measures 6.30 m, and also has a 0.80 m blouse piece in blue.



A touch of contemporary fashion for your smart mom
Palazzos are in! Yes, the retro fashion of wide-legged pants has made a comeback. Your mother must have experienced that trend, and currently nothing looks as classy as black palazzo pants paired with a long kurti. This Pakistani style of wearing a kurti is stunning and adds to the sass factor. Your smart mother will thank you for this lovely choice from the brand W which is elegance personified head to toe.



Your mom loves bags!
Even if you don’t know it, I will tell you: she loves bags! More the merrier! Her printed sarees and suits need a complementing bag, and gifting her one can bring a big smile on her face. She may never have told you about that one expensive bag she always wanted to buy. This Lavie bag in white and black can be a style fix for your lovely mom.



Watches are anytime hit
Ever since you came out of her womb, her life was more disciplined. She may not have found time to have her meals, but has fed you time to time without any complaints. Gift her beautiful timepiece making her realize that all that time she poured on you out of love is worth it. This Titan Raga watch is as pretty as she is. This you can get at a very cool price at Jabong.com.



Sunglasses for the sunny lady!
Ain’t she the true sunshine girl of your life? Yes, she is! While most of the ladies ignore sunglasses as the most important summer accessory, make your mother feel the importance of it. Like every young girl, your mother is also a fabulous lady who can carry off a pretty pair with aplomb. Spoil her with this dainty pair of retro-frame sunglasses from the house of Vogue.




With changing times and coping with her growing kids, every woman forgets what she used to be. Though she becomes more patient with time, she forgets to look her best all this while. Pamper her, and give her a chance to be her stylish self, be a new her! This Mother’s day help her to reinvent herself.

Travel in Style!

by , in
Heya fellas!!
I'm back from a luuuurrrvvvveeelllyyyy holiday!
Happy & high.
Relaxed & refreshed.
Tanned & sunburnt.


I had a lovely time, which, those of you who follow me on Instagram, already know! :)
I plan to do outfit posts as well as a travel post with pictures from the holiday. Stay tuned to know about my amazing experiences in Thailand!


For starters, I thought of sharing my one of my travel outfits with you all.
Comfort is always of highest priority while choosing travel outfits. But for me, style comes a close second. After all, airports are one of the most diversely stylish places, right?






[ Sweatpants: Myntra.com | Top: c/o Kazo | Aztec print shrug: Colaba Causeway, Mumbai | Canvas backpack: c/o Limeroad.com | Watch: Giordano, gifted | Platform sliders: Westside ]


My new pair of sweatpants has gone on to become my favorite piece of travel clothing. They are comfortable and if styled well, does not need to be confined to the gym. My new backpack from Limeroad was the perfect travel bag I could ever choose - it's spacious, stylish & easy on the shoulders. And of course, flights can be a li'l chilly, hence the layers are a necessity!


Stay tuned for lots of travel posts coming up soon! :)

How did you all spend Labour Day? I just lazed at home, blogged and am now looking forward to my best friend's first anniversary party in the evening!!! #tgif


Love,
Anupriya DG
