MOODY MONDAY :: KISSES & HUGS


Hey everyone! Japna here, and I've got that lovin' feeling right now. My heart is full  with all the love I've received on my birthday last weekend. My husband swept me away to the pink city of Jaipur (and I shared all that with you on my Twitter & Instagram feeds). And all this makes me feel like there's so much in life to be grateful for.

This year I've been blessed with a gorgeous little baby, who brings me joy every day, and I didn't know there could ever be a love like this. I can't get enough of his sugary kisses, and hugs, and so today, this week, this lifetime we're all going to celebrate the unconditional loves of our lives!

Hugs and kisses shall abound to all and sundry, and what do you know we may even start a little movement, a revolution maybe! (nah! who are we kidding!) For now we'll just have to contend with having these little kiss marks spread out wherever we go - right now I want them ON MY CLOTHES! And also on my PHONE COVER!

SELF PROJECT :: #66DAYSAT6


Hey everyone! And it's been a while.. has it not! Seems like yesterday to me that we were discussing my last outfit, but then it also seems like years since I've spoken to you.

Japna here, and mommy duties have kind of taken over my world for a couple days now. And it seems as though I'm falling behind. Everyday is a new and jarring reminder, that there's way more to accomplish, than I think I can manage, and I find myself at a loss of control.

Don't be fooled though, this little rant is not just that - a rant. It has, hidden in it's quiet frowny-ness (if that's a word) the beginnings of a self project. {#66DAYSAT6} Now the inspirations for this endeavour come from this very humble video that my husband chanced upon on YouTube. So I take it upon myself, to wake up at the A.M. of 6:00 EVERY.SINGLE.DAY. and find something that inspires me, and share it with you.

Now don't get all condescending on me! This may be no big deal to you.. (yes! you the one who wakes up at 5:59AM! or earlier), but for this sleep deprived momma it's one mean feat! So in order to get ahead of my day I need to do this, and am hoping that if you're inspired as well, you'll join along!

If you're up at 6:00AM and about, all you need to do is share a photo on Instagram by tagging @goodlookinblog and @japna_sodhi and using the hashtag #66daysat6. We'll gladly repost our faves  on our feed as well!

There's nowhere to hide for me, it's official now!

{TRENDING} :: THIN BLUE LINE

The monsoon is finally upon us! And everything we do around the Goodlookin HQ these days is inspired by the moody weather. So it's no surprise then, that our favourite beauty trend these days is also inspired by the monsoon blues.
Hey everyone Anshu here, and I'm in the mood for brightly coloured eyeliner. Blue to be precise! But contrary to popular belief not all shades of blue liner suit my brown eyes. So I'm on a quest for some inspiration on the best kind of blues for us brown eyed babes, and you can check it all out on the 'Hair & Beauty' board on Pinterest HERE.
Cobalt blue is the right choice for brown eyes. It appears very expressive because cobalt blue works perfectly with deep, brown eyes as its contrasting tone makes brown really pop.

{WE'RE LOVING} :: RINGS ON OUR FINGS

Hey everyone! I'm Anshu, the newest recruit on The Goodlookin Crew.. And today I'll be telling you about one of the newest trend that we're loving. And we love it so much we're literally putting a ring on it! Lots of rings actually.

You guessed it! We're obsessed with stacking rings these days.. And we're showing you just how we're wearing ours.
The stacking game is actually pretty simple! (that's one of the reasons why we just love it!) and here are some of our rules of 'thumb'

1. Rule No. 1 as always with us is - There are no rules! Do your own thing, and don't be afraid of it, this trend really is all about expressing yourself, and telling the world what mood you're in.

2. Flaunt you favourite one. If there's a particular piece that you just can't live without.. well, you won't have to. Instead show it off to your buddies, by giving it emphasis.. wear it without stacking any rings on that finger.

3.  Whoever said gold and silver can't be worn together was lacking an imagination! We say don't stop at gold and silver.. there's also rose gold, and resins, and way more to put on them fingers.

4. Knuckle it up! We're always wearing a knuckle ring of some sort another! It's a great twist, and makes people do a double take.

5. Pinky may be the last one in, but she's sometimes the one that brings the stack together. So don't forget to show some love to your pinky finger! And remeber, your knuckle rings, can easily double up as pinky rings.

That's it class over. Now go on and stack away!
And share your stacking secrets with us over on

{OUTFITTED} :: I'M A PACMAN!

Pant season is officially over here in Delhi. We can't think of wearing trousers, and our jeans have taken a seat at the very back of our closet these days! Japna here, and I've got skirts on my mind right now. Midi skirts are the way to go this season.. and honestly they're a blessing in disguise for if you're a babe with a booty.

I raved to you about my experience shopping with STYLISTA (read about it HERE) and today I'm gonna continue to rave about them - namely this skirt!

This is the outfit I wore to work yesterday! (Yes! to an actual office.. I did switch out the sandals for a pair of office appropriate pumps) And got many compliments for how pleasantly summer-y my outfit was. So there.. that's half my money's worth achieved - you know we all are vain people who dress to impress.

But let me just say that even before the capsule collection came out I was in love with this print  by Yogesh Chaudhary's mainstream collection (which I could not seem to get my hands on) So when I saw a similar rendition done for the exclusive collaboration with STYLISTA, I was a woman on a mission.

The results as you can see, are perfectly poseworthy!
Lots of #StylistaLove to the team at Stylista.
They stayed super- connected with me and took care that my order was delivered to me asap! 
| Skirt: Yogesh Chaudhary for STYLISTA (Available here) | Blouse: Zara (old) |
| Shoes: Rosso Brunello | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban | Accessories: Aldo |

How would you wear this PACMAN print midi skirt?

{WEEKEND BRUNCH} :: CHERI NEW MENU TASTING


Happy weekend everyone! Japna here, and today I'm bringing you a fun account of a really special experience that our friends over at Cheri One Qutab provided us. We were invited to join the owner of the much celebrated restaurant, for a tasting of the new menu that has now been introduced.

This was a great experience for me, as I had to be completely honest with myself about wether or not something was working for me. You see I'm quite an accommodating eater usually, so this really put my palette to the test, and I had to dig deeper into actually tasting the food I was eating, rather than just voraciously gobbling it up in true Punjabi style!

Naturally we went on an empty stomach! And these photos are probably only some of the few fantastic things we were served as part of the entire tasting. (The rest were gobbled up even before I could put my fork down and bring out the camera!)

Enough said, I'll let the photos from the day make your mouth water!

A big shout out to Sudeep, the owner of Cheri One Qutab, for having us over, and making this an extremely fun experience for us.

So remember guys! The next time you're going to Cheri One Qutab all you have to do is ask for the new menu, and your tastebuds shall be delighted!

{SHOP THIS} @ STYLISTA

Hey everyone! Japna here, and today I'm introducing you to one of my latest favourite places to shop online. Now if you know me well (and by now you all do) you know that I'm a voracious online shopper. And I love to share all the inside scoops on fun stuff to find, and the where where where (as in WWW) to find it.

I came across STYLISTA through a friend's facebook page, and when I got on...well it was lurve! Honestly though it's a great website to shop some key pieces for the summer wardrobe of every 'stylista'. The collections are resort-wear inspired pieces designed specially for STYLISTA by some of the best designers of our country. They do have their own collection of great stuff as well.

I recently shopped for THIS dress, designed exclusively for STYLISTA by Nishka Lulla. And I've got my eyes peeled for THIS skirt by Yogesh Chaudhary, and THIS top designed by Wendell Rodricks.

Was so impressed with the sleek packaging, and also a cute note from the designer (a generic feature of course) was included alongside. Here are pictures of my package, the day this happy monkey opened it!




Will soon share a full outfit showing the gorgeous piece that was wrapped up in that box, but here's a sneaky-peek of me wearing it just beacause I couldn't wait to show you.
That's little old me trying to perfect the art of the mirror selfie with a DSLR!

Have you shopped STYLISTA before? Would you after reading this post?

{QUICK TIP} :: LOVE YOUR LIPS


It's June ladies! And everyone's thirsty... including your lips. Here's our Quick Tippie for super lippies.
You gotta show them some love, and save them from getting all chapped up.

Apply a lip balm before you apply lipstick. Not only will your lipstick slide on smoothly, but it also won't drink up on the moisture from your lips. Make sure to touch up your lip balm every time you touch up your lipstick.

We love the Forest essentials range of lip balms. THIS ONE in particular.

Trusty Vaseline Petroleum Jelly {Available at your neighbourhood drug store}

What do you usually do to keep your lips smooth during the summer!?
