(SHOP THIS) :: A MONTHLY DOSE OF BLING WITH ZOTIQQ


All girls love a little bling! Even the most conservative dressers, like to add a little sparkle to their outfits.

Hi girls, Japna here, and today I'm going to tell you all about an amazing and blingtastic month that I've had thanks to Zotiqq. An interesting concept, Zotiqq is a jewellery box subscription. A carefully curated selection of pieces, that are bang on trend, and available at your doorstep every month.

The big surprise though, is well, a big surprise! Because the contents of the box are not revealed. And  so basically you have no clue as to what this month's box, is going to have. And to add to that, every box has different goodies in it. So if you and I ordered the box for the same month, chances are, we'd both get very different stuff! How cool is that! 

The box comes in two variants! One for the hoarders, and one for the well, not-hoarders! Hehe! 
The bigger, Fashionista box, that has 5 pieces of sparkly goodness, is more appealing to me, but that's just because I love my bling. But there's also a slightly more conservative variant with 3 pieces!

My experience ordering the box was seamless, from placing the order, to the final delivery, everything was prompt, and well communicated to me via SMS. The packaging was no frills, which was nice, considering that there's a whole bunch of frou frou inside. And the great surprise was that each of the pieces came with their own cloth 'potli' to store it in later.

Here's how I wore my bling during this month.


GETTING THAT PRECIOUS SELFIE!

FRESHENING UP THE FLOWERS AROUND THE HOUSE.


AT WORK, DOING VIDEO CALLS TO FINALISE SOME COLLABS.


AND BEING INTRUDED BY A CUTE LITTLE MONKEY!

ALL SET TO PARTY!

The pieces were extremely trendy, and worked easily from being dressed down, to dolled up. They've quickly become staples in my accessories drawer, and there's  no way I'm parting with them any time soon!

{OUTFITTED} :: TURQUOISE SHIFT

When the monsoons arrive it's all about shorter hemlines and bare legs for me! Oh, and hair tied up, because with the monsoons you can never really tell when a good hair day, becomes a bad hair one.

Hi lovelies, Japna here, and if you're suffering the monsoon-y monday blues, then this here, is the blue for you.... and me!

So this shift dress is the hero of my wardrobe right now. The number of ways that I have worn it, I can't begin to tell you. For one, the minty colour is something that's instantly fresh. The cut of the dress is superb for someone with big broad hips, and with the pockets on the thighs and the slight A-line cut, it's got the whole 70's vibe going which is very in vogue right now!

I used a trusty white shirt to camouflage the deep V-neck (that deep V works wonders on a date I tell you!) and when wearing short dresses, my go-to rule is not to wear heels. Something about this little tip just makes me feel instantly more at ease when I've got on a supremo shorty on.

Psst.. get this dress on sale  HERE!


Dress: River Island (on sale HERE) | Shirt + Shoes: Zara | Bag: Michael Kors |

Hope you liked this playful little outfit, as much as I love wearing it!

{THIS IS WORTH IT} :: THE MAGIC PAINT POT!

When I started wearing make-up, the major issue I faced was that my eye shadows did not last, nomatter how expensive the brand was, all thanks to the oily eyelids. (Sigh!) Even if you have dry eyelids, the problem is that eye shadows crease and flake easily.

Hey pretty gals..Ridhi here! And today I'm sharing my  secret to all day, long lasting and non creasing eye shadow!

Introducing, MAC Paint Pots...

MAC paint pots are almost like eye primers, creamy in texture, available in beautiful colors and last a really long time. They enhance the color of your eye shadow as well. All you have to do is use your fingers to apply a small quantity of the product all over your lids and follow it up with your eye shadow(s).
The shades we are completely in love with are,

Nubile: A very neutral shade that acts as a perfect base for any of your eye shadow, specially for the Indian skin tones!
Rubenesque: This is a super pretty champagne peachy color that can even look great just on it's own!

MAC paint pots come in a 5 gm jar and costs Rs.1450/-. Even if you use it everyday, a paint pot will easily last you an year because a very meager quantity is required per application. That's a bang for my buck!
So all you lovely girls out there, get the ultimate long lasting eye make up with the help of this miracle product!
If you haven't tried it as yet, then you've gotta get your hands on one of these! If you've used it let us know in the comments below!

{OUTFITTED} :: MAXIMISED POSSIBILITIES

They say India is the land of possibilities! I say, so is my wardrobe! And yours!
Japna here, and today we're playing a little game of "how many ways can you wear something?"

Fluted skirts have been catching my eye everywhere these days. And you'll be surprised to know the amazing possibilities that one sweet little skirt can come with! Today I'm sharing the three ways and places that me, and every other Delhi girl can rock this trend!

Fluted skirt: Max Fashion

ON THE METRO TRAIN, TO WORK -
Delhi travels by the metro, and we're proud of it! You can feel the pulse of the city that is Delhi as you fight your way to get into the 9:00AM train. And no matter how many cars you own, it is this metro that is the quickest way to take you to wherever you want. It's that thing that you take for granted, yet can't live without.
Just like a trusty white shirt!
Which is what a day of meetings at the office calls for! A classic white shirt is a must in any wardrobe. It always makes an impression, and gives your sweet little skirt the ability to kick some serious ass in the boardroom.

ON THE ROOFTOP, AT YOUR FAVE RESTAURANT -
Over the past couple of years, the food culture in the city has really come into it's own. Delhi loves to eat out, and we love to explore the new joints that are opening up all over the city! The restaurants at Haus Khas Village, with their rooftops, and romantic views of the lake are some of my favourite places for a date with my boo!
The sweetness of your skirt is amplified by a ruffled camisole, that makes sure that the honey won't be able to take his eyes off you in the candle light.

ON A SUNDAY EVENING, AT THE PARK -
Delhi is a city that has many gardens and parks. And while the mornings will see Delhi-ites jogging, running, meditating, and exercising to kickstart a new day, the evenings will have them play, fall, explore, learn, and generally just be kids. Wether it's cricket, frisbee, football, badminton or any other sport you'll see people of all ages, engaged in play of some sort or another.
And so I chose a classic striped top, in a summery tangerine hue, to go with the skirt, as I took my little one to be one with the wind, at Lodhi garden, one of the most famous parks in Delhi. A little unexpected detail in the back elevates my basic tee, and puts the party in the 'back-yard' if you know what I mean!

My relationship with, and love for Max Fashion is well documented through this blog (HERE and HERE, if you don't already know!), and today I've been invited by Max Fashion to take part in #MaxRoadToParis, a styling contest where the winner will be flown by the brand to witness Paris Fashion Week!

You see there are clothes that are for being in fashion, and then there are clothes that are for being me! Me, the mom, me the wife, me the corporate junkie, and me the blogger.

And that's where Max Fashion comes in - its for me. I find their clothes immensely on trend, and the versatile silhouettes transition seamlessly for the different roles that a woman must play everyday.
What's more! In today's day and age of poly-everything, it's so refreshing to see a brand have the '100% Cotton' tag on most of their clothes! Now that's a 100% goodness for this goodlookin'!

I must add, that as part of the #MaxRoadToParis contest, we were offered a choice of four pieces of clothing, to style and return. But I was so happy with the four that I had picked up from their varied collection, I was convinced I didn't want to part with them!

In addition to their stores, you can also shop Max Fashions on www.maxfashionindia.com
And for more updates on their collections, and offers you can follow them on their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

Hope you liked the looks, and if you do, leave us a comment down below.
