Maxi Dresses In January

It has been actually a warm winter in Delhi this time, courtesy: El Nino effect. Hence no legwarmers or overcoats were to be seen.  In the middle of the winters, people let the invincible summers in their hearts out. 

I am keeping this post very short. You guys have a great weekend. Please follow me on GFC and Facebook and Instagram if you like reading the blog.

No Goals Please

It is one of those days when I do not know what to write about. Should I talk about the sudden spell of real Indian winters or about the upcoming fashion trends. You know what, there is something I have been itching to talk about for a long time. It certainly is more important than fashion trends of 2016 for me, at least for today.

I am talking about goals: not our usual, run-of-the-mill goals of losing weight or starting our own business or travelling more often, or owning a pet, but something else. It is the goals that magazines and sub-standard but very successful (I wonder if there is a co-relation between the two, but we will talk about that some other day) platforms on internet throw at us. "Ben Afleck and Jennifer Garner give us marriage goals." The next day I hear Ricky Gervais saying that Matt Damon is the only person Ben has been faithful to! Okay, it was not the next day, but you get the point I am trying to make here I hope.

I am not a severe cynic. I totally understand when they say that Charlize Theron gives us hair goals or my sisters give everyone craziness goals. But relationship goals? Friendship goals? I mean c'mmon, shut the front door!   

Only two people know if their relationship or marriage or friendship is great or not. Maybe a few close friends have an idea as well. But that's it. Also an internet platform has no right to assume we are losers with no friends or lovers. For all they know, we are happier with our lovers and our friendships are stronger than they can ever imagine.

Winter Greys

We all need our fair dose of inspiration every once in a while. Growing up, I used to think that when a person really wants something, nothing can stop her from getting that.

But then things don't really work that way in life. I have seen the best of us in the worst of self doubts at times, if not all the time. Inspiration is paramount.

As far as fashion is concerned, I turn to street style blogs and features for inspiration.They do not only give me ideas to wear my blouses and skirts in a certain manner but also tell me how to move beyond the usual patterns, the usual colours, pretty much everything usual.

So, what inspires you to dress up? Let me know in the comments section and please follow me on GFC and Facebook and Instagram if you like reading the blog.

Review: Asus Zenfone 2 Laser

My colleague has been using a Zenfone 5 for some time now and he has been asking me to try an Asus phone. So when I got my hands on the Asus Zenfone 2 Laser, I had a certain amount of expectation from the phone. And yes, the phone did meet my those expectations. 

I am not a technology person. So I won’t be writing about every technical specification here. You can find those details elsewhere as well. But I am very excited to give you three reasons why you should buy this phone; three reasons that a fashion blogger like me thinks are important. And here they are:

Camera (What else!!!) The phone has a 13 MP Primary Camera and 5 MP secondary camera with dual light flash. Now I am aware that there are phones available in market with a higher megapixel camera. But I also know that a higher megapixel does not always mean better pictures. The best part about the camera is that there is zero shutter lag which means you do not miss a moment! You can focus an object in less than a second. The picture quality is good. And did I mention a physical rear key that makes clicking selfies easy? I took all these pictures in low light (Yeah, I did feel like a mean reviewer!). See for yourself. 

Power back up: When a bag does not match my skirt, I do not really think about changing my skirt! And the bag that matches may be a small sling bag or a smaller clutch which means I do not really carry a phone charger around. It’s a hassle to say the least. Yes, phone chargers usually do not fit into clutches. One can use that space to carry more important things. Zenfone 2 Laser has great battery back up. You can Instagram all day and you still have a few bars when you are going to bed.

Looks :): Yes, I have got a black and golden Asus Zenfone2 Laser with a golden back which pretty much goes with most outfits. It’s a good looking phone with a big screen. The HD display looks nice.

So these are the three reasons that make me love this phone. Do let me know about your experience if you have used this phone. Have a great weekend guys!

Its A New Year!

Another year went by.

And at the end of every year, we learn a few things, knowingly or unknowingly. At times it may seem that we have learnt nothing as life may not have taken any major twists and turns in a particular year. But even then, there is usually something or the other that we take a note of.

This year taught me that working out can be made into a habit! I am not saying it is easy. But once you start doing it and do not really let anything stop you, it does become a habit after a considerable amount of time. And then comes a point when your body does not feel that good when you skip your gym/run/swim/whatever.

This year taught me that reading is very important. Reading opens a range of possibilities. I do not know why had I stopped reading. But I realise that stories keep me going. The world of books is a happy world.

This year taught me to take fashion tips from girls around me. And about today's outfit, I have taken the scarf bit from my friends Achala and Mehak. No one does scarves and mufflers like these two ladies. And a small scarf makes a big difference. What do you think?

Here is wishing you a very happy new year! Please follow me on Facebook and Instagram if you like reading the posts.
