PRINT CLASH

You’ve definitely played Clash of Clans, probably watched the movie Clash of Titans too! Not to forget, the numerous clashes that you witness in your daily life.Well, you must be wondering, what on earth is this print clash now! As if there was a dearth of clashes in your life and now am asking you to deal with another one!

So, let’s first start with the lowdown on Print Clash. In simple words, it is basically a combination of two distinct and different prints. More often than not, men shy away from sporting different prints and resort to more plain clothes rather than experimenting with their wardrobe collection. Prints are the so called underdogs in men’s fashion! The potential is definitely there to convert it into something extraordinary. However, most of the time we lack the confidence. The fear of uncertainty regarding social approval hinders our choice. We tend to go with the safer options, the more plain apparels.  We tend to stick with something which we have already worn before and while doing so, more often than not, we don’t really distinguish ourselves from the common lot; we restrict ourselves from experimenting and in turn miss out on opportunities!

So through this blog, I am going to showcase a print combination which I feel would be a perfect party wear outfit. Also, with a few alterations, you can sport this look for casual outings or even for your date night! Being versatile and standing out from the crowd is a sought after attribute these days.

Print On The Rocks

Hold onto that excitement! This is not about your favorite drink! On the contrary someone might just offer you one on account of your impeccable dressing sense! Jokes apart! Printed pants is the hot topic of this particular blog and I have opted for a black and white designer print and combined it with a dotted purple polo t-shirt.

 Aviator calling

A classy aviator is bound to notch up the glam quotient and would certainly complete this look if you are planning to stay outdoors. The color palette is very important and it is something which must be kept in mind and it should be in sync with your entire outfit. Given it a long thought, I presume? Well take my advice and without a frown go for that brown!

 

 Print Clash Upgraded

Experimenting with your collection is something which I strongly emphasize on. You can devise a crafty look with some bare essentials, only if you allow yourself to look beyond. For instance, let us select a jet black blazer and a pair of glasses to enhance the already print coordinated outfit! The outcome was sheer class. Take a look for yourself.

 

Upping the hotness quotient by the Jacuzzi but looking cool, nevertheless!

 

You can opt for a pair of sunglasses too! Versatility is the key like I said!

 

So we’ve come to the conclusion of this post now. I have always been a fan of printed apparels and my love for prints has culminated into what I       call  Print Clash. Hope this inspires you to try and play with some prints too! It is a goodbye for now. Until next time…Adios, amigos 🙂

 

Thank you

Happy Hamper Subscription Box

Happy in the name of a hamper makes it “Happy Hamper”. What a pretty name for a monthly hamper box!

Hey Peeps! How are you? Well, I am waiting for the weekend eagerly and would try to come up with something new again.

This blogging world keeps me curious about my surroundings. I always make sure that I come with something new every week and spread awareness about the things that can make a woman’s life easy and simple.

Happy to take care of finer details

A few days back, I received the July subscription box by Happy Hamper. Before sending this hamper across, they asked me to go to their website and order it myself using a coupon code.

So, why these queries when they were sending it as a sample for me to be reviewed? Well, this is because they send hamper according to an individual’s skin/hair type and concerns.

What’s there in the July Happy Hamper?

The stylish monsoon guide

Hey Peeps, Monsoon is making me go crazy. I am not able to enjoy the rain as much I used to enjoy being a kid. But yes, the kid inside me is still alive and I am never going to let that child fade away.

My first ever monsoon essential

 

Monsoon Fashion, Style, Care - Namrata - Bangalore based Indian Fashion Blogger

I am from a very small town, Darbhanga and did my schooling from its most famous school, the only CBSE and English medium school in town, Holy Cross School.

During monsoon, my school used to get flooded because one corner of the school lay next to a big pond. Being a kid I used to enjoy the additional holidays that were inevitable due to monsoon flooding.

Monsoon Fashion, Style, Care - Namrata - Bangalore based Indian Fashion Blogger

At the same time, our parents used to get worried about our studies and exams. So, after a long consultation with the parents, the school Principal decided that the school will open as soon as the water level falls.

The school even allowed kids to wear plastic shoes during monsoon so that they don’t catch a cold due to wet socks. I know, it does not look good along with school a uniform but all of us have loved it in childhood.

Monsoon Fashion, Style, Care - Namrata - Bangalore based Indian Fashion Blogger

Since then I always buy such waterproof footwear for the monsoon season. In fact, the now so famous Crocs is a glorified enhancement of that footwear of yore.

Always look stylish

Monsoon Fashion, Style, Care - Namrata - Bangalore based Indian Fashion Blogger

Every season comes with a new beginning and we need to take a few measures accordingly. Should we compromise on our style and look? No, Right?

Monsoon comes with so many problems in spite being the favourite season of many. The first and foremost fear every girl faces is what to wear because we don’t want to get wet and show our bosoms.

So here are few tips I use to take measures without compromising on my style.

Healthy Snacking with SnackExperts

Who doesn’t love snacks? Hunger pangs can strike in between meals, out of boredom or even while travelling. All of us have been guilty of reaching out for a bite of our favourite snack.

Usually, it is in the form of deep-fried samosas or packaged foods like chips, wafers, fried nuts. Who could resist the oh-so-delicious looking cakes and muffins?

Even if you make sure your main meals conform to nutrition standards, unhealthy snacking can make your fitness goals go for a toss. Snacking need not be a cheat meal.

Wouldn’t it be great if we could satiate our in-between meal cravings, still being true to our health and nutrition needs?

The SnackExperts from Chennai

Snack Experts - Namrata - Bangalore based Indian Fashion Blogger

SnackExperts, a Chennai-based start-up aims to make our snacks healthy, falling back to the age old practices which used to be a part of our mom’s and grandma’s kitchen.

The company has spread out its snacks into interesting categories as – Sweety Retreats, Fruit nut Extravaganza, Fruits Fosterage, Scintillating Savouries, Sassy Seeds and Flapjack fairies

You can order them in a boxed set with three options.

  • A trial pack of 3 50g snack pouches at Rs 150
  • A regular box of 5 150g snack pouches at Rs 699
  • A jumbo box made up of 3 regular boxes, i.e. 15 150g pouches at Rs 1799 – enough to suffice a regular nuclear household for a month.

You can customise your healthy and tasteful snack boxes by choosing from a variety of 50+ snacks.

My Snack Box

Snack Experts - Namrata - Bangalore based Indian Fashion Blogger

The box I ordered had a pack each of – Ragi Crispies, Oats & Nuts Ladoo, Triberry Medley, Old Fashioned Nut Mix and Almond & Cinnamon Flapjack, which is a good mix of sweet and salted savouries.

The packing was thoughtful in use of re-sealable pouches to keep the snacks fresh for multiple use. You could even recycle the container box into a storage box.

Snack Experts - Namrata - Bangalore based Indian Fashion Blogger

All of these 50+ snacks are devoid of margarine’s, shortening agents, partially hydrogenated oils, emulsifiers, colouring agents and artificial dyes that pose threat to one’s health.

Don’t make an impression that since they are healthy, they must be quite bland. Should these snacks be consumed only by those who have given up on all the joys of life?

They were in fact quite tasteful and I did not miss the regular off the shelf snacks. You’ve got to try them out!

In today’s hectic lifestyle, don’t let unhealthy snacking compromise your nutrition and health goals. Carry a pack of one of the 50+ SnackExperts snacks with you and you’re sorted for the day.

 

10 Hottest Beard Styles For Men

Ask girls what they really find extremely hot in men, and trust me the first thing that’s going to strike their mind is the beard.

Beard continues to be a very popular men’s styling “accessory” and men are embracing this trend by trying out some really exclusive styles.

Growing a beard is fun and is a totally new experience in life. If you got what it takes, give it a shot.

There are many beard styles you can choose from. But what you really need to know is that there are a lot of factors that are to be considered when styling your beard. Beard style depends a lot on your face shape and what looks good on other may not look good on you. So, you need to keep on trying the different styles to know what looks good on you.

Here I bring you 10 really hot beard styles for 2017 that will surely add oomph to your look.

  1. Full Beard

Beard style for men- Namrata- Bangalore Based Indian Fashion Blogger

One of the hottest beard styles this season is the full beard. Sported by most of the popular celebrities, this beard style has taken the 2017 beard look by storm.

Suitability: Diamond, Triangle or Inverted Triangle face shape

Tips: If you have a good beard growth, all you need to do is let the hair grow until medium stubble and shape it evenly using a razor. Stop shaving until 6 weeks so as to attain the look. Trim right after to maintain the length.

  1. Bandholz

Beard style for men- Namrata- Bangalore Based Indian Fashion Blogger

If you could grow hair all over your face and have all the patience in the world, bandholz is probably for you.

Eric Bandholz, popularized this look and thus the style is named after him. He is the founder of BeardBrand which specializes in some high quality products such as beard oils, washes, softeners, scissors and combs.

Suitability:  Triangle, Inverted Triangle, Oblong, Oval or Diamond face shapes

Tips:  Throw away your razor and scissors; you won’t need them for months. For the first 4 months, you may look patchy and unkempt but let it grow until it reaches the maximum length you can genetically grow. You can start shaping and cutting it 7 months after, or you can keep it as is, depending on your preferences. What is nice about the Bandholz is that you can keep it freely unlike other beard styles.

  1. Circle Beard

Beard style for men- Namrata- Bangalore Based Indian Fashion Blogger

Also known as the “French” beard, the circle beard is a combination of mustache and rounded goatee beard styles. It looks neat and tidy, thus making it the best option for men who like it classy and sophisticated without letting go of their beard.

Suitability: Oval and Round face shapes

Tips: Firstly, have enough hair on your face so not to get it over trimmed. Secondly, hit the salon to get the perfectly circle shape. As and when you achieve the desired look, you can maintain the look by trimming off the excess hair.

  1. Extended Goatee

Beard style for men- Namrata- Bangalore Based Indian Fashion Blogger

The extended goatee is a combination of a goatee and a mustache. The style is different from the full beard as you are taking off the hair on the sideburns.

Suitability: Square and Oval Face Shape

Tips: Here, mustache is important. So, don’t take it off. Make sure that you have grown medium stubble before shaping your beard. So, take off the hair on the sideburns and adjust the width according to your preferences.

  1. Garibaldi

Beard style for men- Namrata- Bangalore Based Indian Fashion Blogger

Don’t like maintaining your beard regularly, Garibaldi is for you. It’s shorter than Bandholz, so trimming is required once in a while.

Suitability: Oval or Rectangular Face

Tips: You have to grow your beard for about 4 months until it reaches 15-20 cm. Trim and shape the lower area from time to time to make it look round.  The mustache’s length should be kept neat as the focus should be on the beard. No styling aids required as it has to look natural.

  1. Imperial

Beard style for men- Namrata- Bangalore Based Indian Fashion Blogger

Imperial beard style is not a beard style, but basically a mustache thing. It could be accompanied with sideburns or chin beards.

Suitability: Rectangular or Oblong Face

Tips: Keep your beard simple so more attention is drawn at the mustache. Be patient enough so you acquired enough whiskers which could be easily styled.

  1. Short Stubble

Beard style for men- Namrata- Bangalore Based Indian Fashion Blogger

The easiest and the most sophisticated of all beard styles is the short stubble. It looks manly yet does not make you look untidy.

Suitability: All face types

Tips: Just don’t shave and keep on trimming your beard to maintain this look.I f you grow hair above your cheeks, just shave it habitually to maintain the look. You can also shave the hair growing on your neck area, keeping the stubble focused just around the lower area of your face.

  1. Medium stubble

Beard style for men- Namrata- Bangalore Based Indian Fashion Blogger

If you don’t want to trim your beard, medium stubble is for you. It may look scruffy a little bit, but once maintained brings out the macho in you.

Suitability: All face types

Tips: Just make sure you don’t grow beard beyond neck region and cheeks. Keep your beard length around 5 mm and trim your beard once in a week.

  1. Van Dyke

Beard style for men- Namrata- Bangalore Based Indian Fashion Blogger

This beard style was derived from a popular Flemish painter from the 17th century, Anthony Van Dyke, as it was his signature look. It is a mixture of a goatee and a mustache, with a much delicate precision.

Suitability: Men with narrow chin

Tips: Firstly, grow your beard until long stubble. Then shave off your hair near the neck ,cheeks and sideburns region. Leave your mustache untouched. Hit the salon to get the beard properly shaped. Let the hair grow on your chain and mustache for about 2 inches. Trim once in a while to keep it in shape.

  1. Balbo

Beard style for men- Namrata- Bangalore Based Indian Fashion Blogger

Robert Downey Jr., who made the Balbo look famous was seen sporting this look in his famous films like The Avengers and Iron Man. He followed this look for years as it suited his features pretty well.

Suitability: Men with Narrow Chin

Tips: Firstly, you need to grow a full beard which includes mustache as well. It would take around 6 weeks to get the appropriate beard. Then you need to shape your beard. Giving the proper shape is the key and I would personally suggest hitting the salon and leaving it to the specialists instead of trying it at home.

A saree from my mom’s closet

A girl always wears her first saree from her mother’s closet. Do you agree with me?

My first saree

Saree from my mom's closet- Namrata- Bangalore based Indian Fashion Blogger

I still remember as a kid how fascinated was I towards my mom’s sarees and used to drape them by just swirling around. It seems hilarious when I look back now!

Whenever my mom use to scold me for ruining her saree just like that, I used to warn her by saying “aur daanto-ek din aise hi chunna chunni odh ke chali jaungi aur tum rote reh jana” (one fine day I will get married to a guy, wearing these and then you will be left crying alone).

 

Saree from my mom's closet- Namrata- Bangalore based Indian Fashion Blogger

I never knew this was not funny and she used to get emotional whenever I said those words. I feel bad till date for making her cry by my stupid words. I did that unknowingly, I was jus 5 when this used to be my favourite dialogue.

Teenage saree advice

Saree from my mom's closet- Namrata- Bangalore based Indian Fashion Blogger

When I got a bit older and I had to go for an ethnic day in my high school, I picked a saree from my mom’s closet again and chose a lightweight chiffon saree.

Saree from my mom's closet- Namrata- Bangalore based Indian Fashion Blogger

As per my mom’s suggestion, I could not have carried a heavy silk saree as I was not habituated of those pleats and lengthy sarees.

Saree from my mom's closet- Namrata- Bangalore based Indian Fashion Blogger

Secondly, she said it will not look good in a day occasion. And then she gave me light weight jewellery as well to match my saree.

Saree from my mom's closet- Namrata- Bangalore based Indian Fashion Blogger

Since then my mother is my stylist for ethnic wear. Be it an ethnic day in college or office, a friend’s wedding or my own wedding I have always sought my mother’s help to find a perfect saree for those occasions.

There is not even single saree in my closet which I have grabbed without my mother’s consent.

 

Mom’s suggestions for a saree

Saree from my mom's closet- Namrata- Bangalore based Indian Fashion Blogger

  1. She always keeps a few plain blouses in red, black, silver and gold to match different sarees. (It helps me not to buy new blouse for each new saree and also when I don’t have time to get a blouse stitched, I can always mix and match)
  2. Always opt for a traditional or classic saree if you don’t wear sarees regularly. They never get outdated. In case, you still want to go for a trendy saree, try to buy them at a reasonable price (By the time you would want to reuse it, it gets outdated)
  3. More than style, look for the colour which suits you.
  4. Cotton, Georgette and Silk are the most comfortable fabrics.
  5. Yellow and red and the best colours for saree. This is why 90% of brides still wear these colours for their wedding.
  6. Even if you are not a jewellery and makeup person, you will never look like you have overdone it while wearing a saree.
  7. Underskirt(petticoat) plays a vital role. Always match it and wear a well-fitted one.
  8. Drape the saree that would go with your body type.
  9. Tucking is not enough. Pin it up, as much as is it required. Make sure you pin it securely and hide it.
  10. Wear your footwear before you drape the saree.

Saree from my mom's closet- Namrata- Bangalore based Indian Fashion Blogger

So these are few tips by my mom which I always keep in mind while buying sarees and dropping them.

My mom is my first stylist for ethnic wear and I wish she is always there for me. Knowingly or unknowingly all of us take advice from our mom’s and they are always helpful.

Fuschia Under Eye Serum Review Ft. Vkare

Hey, Peeps! Almost a month back I had shared the goodies pack by Fuschia on my Instagram profile. Subsequently, a lot of you have shown interest in their products, especially the under eye serum.

Moreover, I have received a few more of them through subscription boxes like The Bling Box and The Princess Box. I am in love with all of these Fuschia products. In a fix on which one to review first,  I am reviewing the eye serum, for today.

About Fuschia by Vkare

Fuschia is a certified natural handmade skincare product range by Vkare Bio Sciences Pvt. Ltd.

It has a wide range of handmade soaps, night cream, bath salts, serum, hair care, moisturisers, scrubs, lip balms, face masks, face gels etc. The best part is that all of these are free of parabens.

What does the serum do?

As mentioned on the Vkare website, this is what the product promises:

Cucumber has bleaching action and reduces under eye puffiness. It also has a soothing effect on tired eyes. Green tea & green coffee beans increase the blood circulation of the under eye skin & thus reduce dark circles. They also have firming & hydrating action on the skin.

Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that prevents premature ageing. Aloe vera lightens the skin & firms, hydrates & moisturises the under eye skin. Olive oil glycerin -8 ester, is a water-soluble derivative of olive oil that heals and soothes the skin. Hydrolysed Pea Protein is rich in amino acids that increase skin elasticity and firmness.

My experience of Fuschia under eye serum

Fuschia Under Eye Serum - Namrata Bangalore based Indian Fashion Blogger

This serum is super effective for our everyday eye care concern like dark circles, puffiness, loss of hydration, fine lines around the eyes, etc. I have been using this under eye serum for more than 3 weeks and I can feel the difference.

I am a late riser and always feel puffiness and dark circles around my eyes. Though they are not prominently seen, I wanted to get rid of these. I feel lucky to receive this product by Fuschia.

It cools and relaxes the eyes and the surrounding skin in a jiffy. Initially, I had used this eye serum to relax and rejuvenate my eyes after a day’s strain from working at the computer.

After a few days use, I could realise other benefits too. They are:

  1. Flawless skin and no greasiness after application
  2. Cooling due to ingredients used and reduces puffiness
  3. Fights against dark circles
  4. Hydrates the under eye area pretty well

How to use the product

  1. Pump the product just once. The quantity is enough for both the eyes
  2. Apply gently on clean face around the eye area
  3. Leave it for 5-6 hours, for best results overnight
  4. Use it once or twice in a day as you need

 

Price: 1200 for 30 ML

My Rating: 5/5

Shelf Time: 24 months

Will I try the under eye serum again?

Yes, definitely. This is one of the star product I have come across to fight against my dark circles.

Fuschia Under Eye Serum - Namrata Bangalore based Indian Fashion Blogger

Pros:

  1. Delivers all the goodness promised by Fuschia
  2. Easy to carry
  3. Easy to use
  4. Non-greasy and can be used for all skin type

Cons:

It is priced slightly on the higher side. Even that is justified, as the just one pump is enough for both the eyes. I would be more than glad if Vkare launches smaller bottles at half the price.

Do let me know what do you feel about this product.

Until next time! Stay flawless

The Denim on Denim Look

Hey, Belles! How do you feel about denim on denim look? I love layering and denim jackets are so appropriate for the current weather in Bangalore.

Before I tell you about the outfit detail and the places you can wear them to, I want to know how your weekend was?

Denim on Denim- Namrata- Bangalore Based Indian Fashion Blogger

Well, mine was really hectic with social and photographic engagements. It just passed as a flash and maybe I need a day off now after my weekend.

I have been sharing on Instagram that I have got quite a few collaborations lately and I wanted to work on them this weekend.

Before I could do justice to all of them, I had prior commitments to take care of. One of my shoot with Purnima was long overdue and after much delay, we could finally make it happen on Friday.

I am glad that she invited me as a subject to the Cubbon Park. It was a different experience altogether. I have always been to Cubbon park as a photographer and this was the first time, I was in front of the camera.

As a photographer, it is simpler as I quickly put on anything and can still be on time for an early morning shoot. I was all set for the shoot and rushing towards the cab and I tripped and landed on my knees.

Since it had been raining the night before, my outfit was completely soiled. I had to get back home and change my outfit. Purnima was almost about to reach so I decided to quickly change in to my go to look and not waste the time on thinking what to wear.

You know how long we girls can take when we want to decide on outfit *wink*!

Double Denim

As you know I had to make a quick decision so I went for the quickest look which I could carry. Double denim is my the go to look.

You can spot me in them during shopping, pub hopping, movie theatre, airport – almost anywhere. The best part about denim on denim is you don’t have to worry about the style, colour or the type of denim. They are always super comfortable and look cool.

Any guess on what I would have picked up next to complete my look? If your answer was white sneakers then you are 100% correct.

I have already shared my love for these white sneakers in many of my posts. Yes they are old but for me, they are akin to a favourite blanket where you always snuggle into.

I could have worn my denim shoes to complete the denim on denim look. But, as you know my schedule was packed up for the weekend and I wanted to wear the most comfortable shoes for the day.

Choker love

Do I really need to talk about this? Okay, choker necklace is one of my favourite stuff since the 90s. I have missed them badly for years. I am glad they are back with variations in colour, style, material, etc. I get to pick them up and have lots of option to select from.

What pairs with denim?

Monsoon is all over India now and the weather in Bangalore is back at its salubrious best. So for an early morning shoot, when the sun was playing hide and seek, what colour should have I picked?

I love to throw a splash of bright colour during dull and gloomy rainy days. It freshens up the atmosphere with positive vibes.

Alright! I had selected the colour. So, was I missing something?

What would you prefer to wear for denim on denim look? A tee or a shirt? Neither.

Pee-Buddy – A buddy to always carry in your bag

Hey, Peeps! I am feeling really proud and happy by introducing an irreplaceable but much-ignored product in our lives. And this product is Pee-Buddy!

Ever since I remember – my childhood, moving to Bangalore for college, to even travelling, I have struggled to use public toilets. Pee-Buddy is a breakthrough innovation to solve our woes.

Freedom to stand and pee

Yes, I know I am discussing a topic that is considered borderline taboo. I sometimes wonder in this world of hypocrisy where we talk about women’s equality and safety, this has not bothered anyone for years, to develop a product which provides safe urinal outflow to women.

But weren’t we waiting for someone to say” Ladies – You can now pee while standing”? Well, Pee-Buddy just said that and I really can’t express how thankful I am to Pee-Buddy for this.

What can Pee-Buddy do for us?

Pee-Buddy is a radical product for us women who hate soiled public toilets. I don’t think that toilets are filthy and unusable only in highways, petrol pumps and railway coaches.

Have you ever checked toilets in most shopping malls, restaurants, and theatres? I have never felt safe using them even after using tissue papers.

Lots of time, especially during travel, we need to test our will power for hours just in search of a better place to pee! Do you know how bad is it for a woman’s kidney and bladder to hold her pee?

There are lots of questions must be arriving in your mind similar to these.

If it has not yet struck you yet and you want to know about the health benefits of PeeBuddy, go to the link below and satiate your curiosity Remember – prevention is better than cure!
