Outfit of the day #2 ;- Semi Formal Wear

Hey everyone, Lately I have been so much on the move , completing a ton of errands before I finally begin my work. I spent today meeting some fellow bloggers who are going to collaborate on some posts here 🙂 I know I have been saying that since my last OOTD, but believe I am darn serious this time about getting it worked out right and on time.

I decided to give this meet a semi-formal appeal as I like wearing semi- formals, they seem to make me look stylish while at the same time smart 🙂 This is my second OOTD , hope you like my outfit and forgive for these blurry pics as always 😛 . I had to click indoors since I am not able to venture out in the sun due to my Glycolic Peel Treatment as well as my Permanent Hair removal treatment. 

So here is my outfit, hope you guys like it 🙂

How To Make Different Hair Parting Styles

Hey Guys, So today I emailed the winners of my giveaway ,and I was so glad to get in touch with both my wonderful winners. Here I am today sharing with you another style post which I have learnt throughout my time as a blogger. I get to learn so many things even though I am not a professional in the field of beauty/fashion.

Our hairstyle is always defined by how we part our hair, it can make or simply just break your look. Hair Parting is the smallest significant factor that is hardly considered by any one of us. When you want to style your hair, you only consider which hairstyle, hair texture and the hair color suit me. Have you ever thought about different innovative ways for hair partition?

parting your hair in the most perfect way can help you to look younger but at the same time wrong hair parting without proper knowledge and bad execution can pull down your features and make you look old. Many Hollywood and Bollywood celebrities have experienced a change in their personal life due to good hair parting. Let’s check out the different parting styles….

1) Messy Parting Style

Now everything has gone messy, messy cloth combinations have also become the latest fashion. We get various guidelines and tutorials to maintain messy hair, so why not execute a messy hair partition. With this look, you may observe more than five partitions on hair moving in various vague directions. This is suitable for girls with oval face shape, as it helps to enhance the feature and give a bold look.

2)Zig-Zag parting style

This so reminds of the 90’s Singers I used to watch when I was a kid. This looks kinda cool and funky at the time, I always gets stares when I do this so hell yeah this is daring enough and stylish at the same time. Take a few strands of hair and swipe it to the right, now take another few strands and fix it in the left direction. Repeat this by taking another few more strands first in right and then in the left direction. Hair strands should not be of more than a centimeter. This is very easy to replicate making you look classy and beautiful. If you have a good volume hair, Zig Zac parting style will pump the volume and also add more elegance to it.

3)Clean Straight Hair Parting

4)Deep Right Side Parting.

You might have observed the deep right side parting style with many of the celebrities. They have accepted the new trend of hair partition and carried it well. The end of the arch is taken into consideration while swiping your hair towards the left direction.Take a comb and swipe all your hair towards the left side making sure that the partition looks clean and deep towards the right where your brow arch ends. Parting the hair from the lower side makes you look trendy, classy and also pulls down your age making you look 10 years younger. If you have a round and fuller face, right side parting will help to make your face appear slim.

5) Deep Left Side Hair Parting

Deep left side parting is not a look carried out by many women, as it is bit uncomfortable and need patience to keep them well maintained towards the opposite side of the scalp. Left side parting bring focus to your left eye and covers the forehead too. Deep side parting should be a good pick for women with a broad forehead, which is one of the most common and discussed problems.
To get this look, take a comb and pull all your hair towards the right side considering the end of your brow arches. Make sure the partition looks clean and smooth towards the edges.

6)Slightly Straight Parting Style

Many of us are blessed with good hair, where you have a natural parting and you don’t need to struggle to achieve it. For a slight parting, part your hair as usual towards your left or right, then take the front bangs and swipe it to the opposite direction. For slight parting style, eye edges are taken into consideration. If you have an oval or heart face shape, you should try parting hair from the front. The best way to practice slight parting is to swipe the front hair bangs to the opposite direction soon after you take a bath. Let the hair dry completely in natural air, so that it sets well.

7) Curved Parting Style

This is a good parting style which needs no extra efforts and frames your facial features in the best way. Curved parting style is good for people want to flaunt their cheek bones. To get the curved parting style, part your hair from the front and then start moving slightly in the slanting direction. This looks a clean curve when observed properly, but you should take care about the type of comb you may be using while getting the curved partition.

8)No Parting, Straight Back

Having no hair parting is also a great party idea. You just need to comb your hair back and tuck them with a studded hairpiece. A simple bun can also work.

Hope You guys find this post helpful , Until next time , Have a nice day 🙂

How To Style A Crop Top

Hey guys so today let me divert from my regular routine of product reviews. I will be sharing some tips to style crop tops. I know most of us struggle with them especially the ones on a heavier side like my sister.

How To Style Crop Tops

After researching the web, I came across many celebs sporting them in different ways, so let me ease it out for you and list them below 🙂

  1. Layer It.

Layering is one of the simplest option when it comes to crop tops. Also if you a bit shy of showing that skin there or if you have a ponge, you can easily opt for layering it with another top.All you have to do is wear a nice flowy feminine top under it and you’re good to go 🙂

2. Wear it with a pencil or bodycon skirt.

This one is the most common trend among celebs, almost every celeb I see nowadays follows this style.If you are daring and on a slimmer side, this should get you going.

3. With a Midi Skirt

Another great way of styling crop tops could be by using a nice MiDi skirt. Try them in some contrasting colors than your crop top. I am sure you will stand out. This works well for people who are slimmer on the top side and bulkier on the down side 🙂

4. Try High-Waisted Bottoms.

Since the hem of your top is cut short, add height to the waist of your bottoms so only a coy glimpse of skin is on display.

5. For The Modest Girl

If you are on the modest side, take baby steps when it comes to crop tops. You could opt for a thicker material like a sweater/woven type which is longer than the normal crop tops.This way you won’t be showing that much skin.

6.Long Sleeves for a more Modest Girl.

7. Make it Loose

10. Faux- Crop top anyone ?

These tops are basically not crop tops, they are just shorter versions of your normal top,that make skin visible rarely like when your arms are raised.

11. High- Low Crop Tops

These tops are high on the front and longer at the back, in short these are just like those hi-lo tops and dresses out there.

Culottes are one of the hardest things to work with when it comes to styling, it may make you look glam to a total dud. So choose wisely and a crop top is never too bad.

Co-ordinate your crop top with a matching pant, shorts, full pants,skirts etc. Matching separates are as darling as can be, which makes the crop top much more ladylike.

My first experience:-
All year round there are huge discounts and sales. Recently I saw they had 36% discount on sale items without any minimum purchase. I thought this was a good time to shop for sling bags. I had placed an order of two sling bags on 11th Dec around 1pm.I was shocked to receive it the next day at 5pm :0 . That was really quick.I opted for COD so I was charged rs39 extra. The products came in plastic pouches with no bubble wrap with another plastic covering and a white cloth bag. I was again shocked that the products were not damaged at all.Throughout the day the Jabong team kept in touch with me through sms and e-mails about the status of my package. This is indeed a very good online website.
