4 Best Fashion Apps For Fashionistas!

Shopping for new clothes, managing my wardrobe and styling new looks for different occasion is a full time job and Most of the apps I use are either a useless fun or reminders to do important stuff. Let’s be honest, most of us don’t have time to put any real time or effort into this.  I downloaded all of my apps for free. Right now, the apps I use mostly are QuizUp and Wikipedia. Have you ever experienced a Wiki rabbit hole where you search for one thing and end up clicking every link until you’re ten pages away from your original search?

The first thing you need before shopping is finding a new outfit inspiration. Sometimes it’s get hard to know what types of outfits to wear or what to shop for, Right?? Let’s say you’re going out in the evening and notice other girl with the same outfit you didn’t like but seeing the same great outfit on her gives you the inspiration and idea of how you want to dress, or to find new ways to put together items you may already have in your wardrobe. Your search for outfits inspiration app ends here, Pose is a great app for this and you can open the app’s daily dashboard to see personalized outfit ideas based on your weather and location.

Pose also serves a big community of fashion bloggers and stylists which allows you to follow the people whose style you like the most and fits your personality as per the current fashion trend and check out their real time photos of what they are wearing. You can even get the idea about what to wear for certain occasions, like to a lunch meeting or to a wedding. One of the greatest feature in this app is that every item on Pose is shoppable, so if you see something, you can buy it right then and there!

Nail Art Inspired By The Affection of My NO COLOUR Bedroom

Hi Girls,

How was your weekend darlings? Well mine was very STRAWBERRY 😉 shyI am usually a big fan of these tiny monsters but yesterday while crushing them intentionally to prepare smoothie, I was attacked by these violent strawberries. I felt so HELPLESS when everything was covered from red liquid in my kitchen :(  who will clean everything!

Even though being an admirer of bold colors, my Bedroom and almost everything here is BLACK and WHITE. It’s not the intention to buy everything colorless but it eventually happened to be everything so colorless. If you came over to my house on any random day of the week, you would most likely find me in the middle of an epic battle against discarding or transferring the stuff here and there to make a balance between colors!

Trust me if you can, while writing this post and sitting on my bed, everything I am seeing here all around me is BLACK and White! check out the pics. Donno why?? Look at my curtains (Silver & Black), furniture, bed-sheet, journal on my bed, my phone and even my laptop and clothes I am wearing right now :) Is it like I am fooling around you??  No girls. check out the pics and get the clue if I am saying true.  Or if you’re secretly thinking it’s just an another excuse to show her chaotic bedroom ;)

Do you remember my last Black Post 🙂 Dr Wellmans Black K1 Arnica Hair Oil Review

I went to my middle room to pick up a nice bold color polish from my Nail Polish holder Rack I created, but I ended up picking just 2 colors initially! you know those colors right??

Now that that long-winded introduction is over, here is how I achieved that Leopard Print looking Columnfrom my bed-sheet. I can see other columns in Zebra or straight lines and it’s usually way too childish for my taste.

To get as close as possible to the colored sheet on my bed, I decided to use purple, red and green shade on the base coat to mach it with the bedroom view and painted the two nails with them.  Don’t worry about doing them in a certain order. The random-er, the better.

In Photos: A Taste of Kutch

Hi All,

This small trip to Kutch is possibly one of the most fascinating travel experiences ever just because of the different and antic experiences we had. (Read: Road Tripping to Rural Bhuj) There are very few places in the world that feel like closer to my soul and Mandvi Beach was one of them. I showed up there with a distressed soul struggling and managing daily house chores, on an impulsive trip that I hoped would rejuvenate me And what to say? That place gave me a break time, space and natural beauty to think, write, and appreciate and to live the little joys of life again.

I instantly fell in love with beach the moment I got off from our car and saw the endless blue water and felt burdensome wind slapping my face. Tide was too low, and the the small waves were breaking on the beach, but the view and the warm water – niiice! I stayed there for a couple of hours, trying to be sensible in the fierce sun.

It will take me a few days to digest my small and refreshing trip to kutch. But for the people who have never been to this place, I wanted to give you a quick taste of some of the highlights of this wonderful, captivating place, a place that stole my heart.

OOTD – Girly in Black

Hi Beauties,

Spent my 1st day in Road Tripping to Kutch, observing the white sand, tipping my toes on muddy grounds, gripping my 1st day Indian Ishtyle outfit  and finally said the good bye to calming down Sun . Today is my 2nd day of the trip and I’m witnessing the mesmerizing blues of Mandvi Beach and authenticity of Vijay Vilas Palace which is now converted into the resort.

Being a NO VOICE fan of forts and palaces cause the boredom sometimes but seeing the palace like this after so long was the refreshing one this time and was something I still wasn’t ready for.  Still I showcased some excitement and got to dress in LBD. Have a look at my 2nd day outfit:



Skin Care Update – Using Pure Tea Tree Oil for Healthy Skin

Hi Girls,

I’ve come up with my new skin care update! These days I am more on using and experimenting natural stuff than using its counterparts from cosmetic shops! Count them like: Lemon, Tea Tree Oil, Green Tea, Yogurt Face MaskHoney Hair Mask.

Tea Tree Oil is one of the thing which can be found in my cabinet. Yes, I’ve been using it since 2009 to dabbing it on acne whenever I get. After reading a lot about it, I’ve decided to make it as a one of the necessary product from my skin care regimen as well as on other both parts. Regularly using it from 2 months.

P2270106Still Wondering, Why am I holding the Victoria Secret’s Mist??

P2270112 P2270109

I am not the type of girl, using tons of products on the name of Skin Care Regimen. My daily skin care routine simple includes maximum 3 things for Cleaning, Toning and Moisturizing. Some days even this is hard for me to follow ;)

  • Cleansing (Ahaglow S)
  • Toaning (Tea Tree Oil)
  • Moisturising (Dermoz)

Tea Tree Oil: If you’re looking to get rid of pimples, a 5 percent solution of tea tree oil works just as well as the top drugstore acne remedy. Just take a few drops of tea tree oil and dilute it in the clear water and apply to skin once or twice a day with a cotton swab.


I found it lil more time consuming so I just used an idea to reuse my Body Mist Bottle and poured the mixture into it. Easy right?? Now every time I wash my face, I’ll just pat dry it and spray few pumps over my face and wait for a minute to use moisturizer. Tadaaa I’m Done! And I must say I’ve having the acne free skin everBe careful to not overuse it if you’ve sensitive skin.: while gentler than benzoyl peroxide, it can dry out your skin, triggering your body to overproduce its own oils and make your acne worse.

Note: Gals, getting acne free skin is not a one day magic, other factors including hormone fluctuating etc are also responsible to give you the creepy skin ever but if everything is alright, tea tree will surly help to enhance the skin texture.

And to remove dandruff, I just rinse my hair with Tea Tree Oil Diluted Water!


Other great uses of Tea Tree Oil: 

  • To remove makeup
  • To soften dry cuticles
  • To soothe sores
  • To fight foot odor
  • To eliminate toenail fungus
  • To relieve athlete’s foot
  • To treat the chicken pox

15 Things I will Try to Explore Blessings in Life – My Story

Happiness and sadness can run parallel like train tracks in life. I only want to focus on the blessings in life!


After Marriage things have changed… Few are great and few odds. I’ve become so stubborn & sometimes difficult to handle. Small fights just take a hold on my mind and I won’t think anything whole day to make them even more worse. Do I really wish my life to get worse? Why can’t I choose a different way to see my life in better position. Why can’t I bring smile back to the people I fought with? Why can’t I let the small fights fly lightly like a feather and forget in minutes.

Yes, I really need to change the way I look into this world and enhance my life & relations for the good and for the future!

February 2014 will be the month of past and March will be showing up soon. This (March) whole month will be implemented as a Happiness Happens Month, so here are twenty things, I’ll be performing randomly each day to promote my happiness and increase happiness in my marriage and relations.

Be in the minute. Since happiness is in my determination, let’s decide to stay happy each moment and enjoy what that moment is offering to me. Past is gone and can not be changed, rather then regretting, I’ll try to get a better future because the future and all it’s worries has not happened yet. Be present at very moment and purpose in my heart to be happy in the very now.

Take my Bruzzo (Pet) for a walk. He is here for me! He came for me. I am suppose to be responsible for his everything including his health, food, playing, walk, toys etc. He is here when I need a friend & when I need someone to laugh with or to play with. It really reliefs the mental stress when he jumps on me at the funniest moments; lick my face or purr; bring joy and companionship. Makes me to feel to be loved and to love for life and everyone around me :)

LOL – Laugh out loud. Either I’ll Turn on the TV and Watch the comedy show or have fun with Family or pull out the old funny pics of mine with old friends to laugh out loud and roll on the floor. Laughter is good for the soul.

Scent the air. (Necessity for me ;) coz of Bruzzo Potty habits) Citrus scents like Orange or Lemon add an instant burst of joy, and deeper scents like Rose and Sandalwood help relieve stress and bring peace. So try to indulge in them. 

Go to sleep. We’re living in a nation of overworked, sleep-deprived people, so to increase my happiness, take a daily nap. BTW sleeping is my all time favorite hobby!
