1st trip of the year : Matheran

wasuuuppppp guys,

This is one of my sudden trip , I had absolutely had no plans for 31st night , i wanted to do something different , not like a regular new year party bash. 

26239750_1577872388926472_5785599850677743955_n

I  left for matheran on 31st evening, it was like me taking a chance, because i had not made any prior hotel bookings , and being new year 2018, it could have been impossible for me to get accommodation there .I travelled by local train got there at evening 6 pm, bargained a lot for my stay , finally could fetch one .

I started from Malad (western line) Mumbai ,I had to get to a point on the railway station map called Neral. Word of caution here: Neral is a town in the Raigad district of Maharashtra & comes on the Central Line. It is different from Nerul which is a part of New Bombay and comes on the harbor line. Upon reaching Neral, you have the option of taking the many Maruti Omni Vans lined up to cart tourists to Matheran as cars are not allowed beyond a point on the hill station or you can take the toy train which comes down every two hours.which would take us around 2 hours to reach Matheran.

26231057_1577872415593136_1708620288187013696_n

Time-poor individuals like me 😉 looking to get away from the mad rush of city-life,  is an  Matheran, a hill station which is quite close to both Mumbai and Pune, and is inexpensive as well. Just the start of the year , my budget was low, moreover i dint wanna spend too much on a trip , so this hill station was the best option to me 🙂 

I had finally escaped the mundane into the cradle of nature, amazing cold climate .It was only recently when I went again to Matheran after 20 long years, My Grandparents used to make a point that we all travel together, as soon as i saw the red soil , horses , toy train , i went into flashback, remembering the fun  time with cousins like 20 years ago.

I had done to the beautiful hill station with red sand and hauntingly beautiful walks.

Horse : I visited few points on a horse and some walking down, now i am so looking forward to learn horse riding .

As with most hill stations, sightseeing at Matheran revolves around various Points from where assorted views unfold of mountains, sunset, sunrise and everything in between. The mandatory lake, the Charlotte Lake

26804408_1577882625592115_7412178575639264443_n

Food: I am a very foodie person , love to hogg all the time, i can eat omelette for breakfast almost everyday 😉

 I wanted to have plain, good natured fun; revel in the greenery & peace that the hill station was known to offer minus the frills and fancies that resorts offered while taking you away from the actual beauty of the hill station and while making you believe that you got what you had come there for 

I was totally excited fir the Toy Train Ride, the ticket price was 65rs 

– I AM A BEACH BABY …TOTALLY !!!!

But this time it was “Mountain calling ” I had to go 🙂 🙂 🙂

“peace and a glimpse of the mountain’s soul.”

Chao Phraya dinner cruise :- Bangkok

Chao Phraya dinner cruise — One of the best things to do when travelling to Bangkok

First of all i would like to tell you all , how i Plan my trips, 

  • Decide the destination in advance (eg Thailand) , hunt for the cheapest air ticket.

  • As you all know booking in advance helps to avail cheaper tickets, 

  • Research a bit about the place , and pen down the places of interest , budget ,etc.

  • I usually block my tickets, then then discuss my plan with my travel agent, to design a budgeted trip for me .

  • I booked it at least 4 months in advance, so that i can easily pay in Easy Instalment 😉 lol, and for those few months all i need to do is , cut down on eating , shopping ,etc 😉 😉 😉

FLORAL TWO PIECE ATTIRE FROM

I shop from  aliexpress because the products are very reasonable , no doubt the stuff is amazing , but the drawback is , one has to keep a lot of patience , like i picked this 2 peice floral set for INR 480/- ,  but i received it after almost 25 days . 
I am truly a travel bug, my most preferred look while i am travelling abroad is boho look because its not only chic but comfortable .

15085620_1175657695814612_2385507357998591691_n

This is one of my favourite dress & the picture tooo   , picked this from forever21 
Turquoise backless beach dress look is quite simple , paired with a straw hat and flip-flop. 
location : Pattaya beach Thailand.
BOHO is hot words these years and it is also one of the popular fashion trends chased by girls. Bohemia style mainly focus on some main features, such as Flowers and vines, national totem, tassels, rainbow gradient and the nature elements. It signifies a kind of romantic, exotic and freedom. The thick colours as well as complicated and dedicated designs always bring a strong visual impact and romantic feeling.
There are many kinds of Boho style fashion clothing, such as boho tops, boho short dress, boho maxi dress, cover ups as well as boho wedding dress etc. What have been exposed  in the photos below is the freedom in big nature. And girls in boho style clothing looks more exotic, free and easy.  And that’s i also love this style so much.
Imagine that you are walking on the beach leisurely, with a piece of elegant boho style maxi dress on, the breeze is gently blowing which make the dress floating gracefully.
That’s really such an amazing scene…….. WHOOOO i am a beach baby ❤ 😉
Also if you guys have read my very first blog post at Singapore , Gardens by the bay , that is boho look with long skirt , metal sea blue studded accessories, chunk accessories ❤ with floral tiara ❤

24852458_1547867055260339_1372040659583950269_n.jpg

When i am travelling to GOA or any other international foreign trip i have to get into the mood of a typical traveller , that “”feel “” like a wanderer Gypsy soul !!!

26168770_1561998583847186_2568845154811745951_n

26114052_1561998597180518_5143777697198536649_n.jpg

If you are a girl who is  in love with bohemian style fashion clothing in your daily life, then, it is also a good idea to proceed with your taste even in your big day. ( LIKE A FAIRY TALE FOR ME ) A piece of elegant boho wedding gown will be such a perfect choice for you, esp for an outdoor wedding, such as garden or lawn wedding. The simple design which is quite close to the natural looking, the sheath or A-line silhouette, with dedicated lace and chiffon spliced and quite draping trains. Compared with a thick ball gown or princess bridal gown, boho wedding dress is much more in a graceful and elegant looking. Just do not forget to match a dedicate boho headpiece or just a simple floral hoop.  This help create the whole bohemian look

Thankyou 😘

LOTS OF LOVE

CHRISTMAS OUTFIT

Hey guys hello once again …….hope you had an amazing  time during this Christmas 🙂 

25994923_1559234767456901_2448070493978652142_n.jpg

I had an amazing long weekend , loads of fun , lots of food , cakes & sweets 🙂 😉 ❤ 

and now back to boring work life 😦

25660383_1559225714124473_6064114531238930911_n

Another year has gone by and the holidays are here again! Christmas is one of my favourite holidays — especially the parties. I love all the festivities that lead up to Christmas, and I spend time coming up with cute Christmas outfit ideas for each event I’ve been invited to. Fashion is an integral part of the holiday season. I love getting into the Christmas spirit, and the way I dress adds to the excitement surrounding Christmas.

I am more into dark colours , but this time i wanted to try something different, that is  why  i opted for nude shade ( it looks more like a peach / blush pink ) loved the combination of pairing nude colour with black lace 

25659453_1559221777458200_7666753581887473658_n.jpg

I wanted to put together a guide for ways to dress at different types of events. It can feel uncomfortable to show up overdressed for an event, or worse yet, under dressed, so it’s always good to have a sense of the dress code and how to style yourself. But another big reason I like to come up with cute Christmas outfit ideas in advance is so that I can capture the mood and reflect the occasion, no matter where I’m going.

25660026_1559221740791537_7522541748117511606_n

The outfit I wore this CHRISTMAS is a jumpsuit bought from a boutique at  ( Bandra  link road ) wardrobe would be appropriate for a lot of different occasions, and it’s not limited to only be worn during Christmas time, which makes it a good investment. I’ll probably wear it to my office Christmas party.

25659278_1559235247456853_1374036887672649778_n.jpg

JUMPSUITS:
I love jumpsuits for christmas because,

a) It’s so cold and they cover you up more than a dress would usually therefore it serves the purpose.

b) The most importantly , jumpsuit or play suits are very  “Comfortable” and “Chic” .

c) Easy to layer any jacket or overcoat .

d) can be paired easily with stilettos, wedges forever21 or boots. hm

Style it in Multiple ways :

  • I Created the first look by layering the play suit with black suede long leather overcoat , whenever i wear the garment i make sure i pair it the boots. though nude is a typical summer pastel colour yet the overcoat helps in creating a winter look

  • secondly i styled it with black skater skirt ( this  is one of my favourite skirt in my closet , i had picked this one for just INR 400/- (street shopping)  , and since its black it goes with almost all the top wear .

  • Its a fact that black footwear goes well with almost all the outfits, my shoes collection consists of 90% black footwear , but this time i paired these nude wedges  ,they are going so well with the outfit. 

I am not really a shoe lover , i cant really walk confidently in heels 😉 😉

I am more comfortable  wearing sneakers & boots all the time 🙂

I am yet to shop my new year outfit,I would be glad if you could share some suggestions and ideas with me , please comment below 🙂

Cheers & Lots of love Rise & Slay ❤

BLUSH OVER THE BLUSH PINK TRENCH COAT

Hey , this blog post is to tell guys how i style my trench coat.

Winter is here , though blush pink is a pastel summer colour, yet many brands all over the globe have come up with sweat shirts, hoodies, trench coats, etc in (blush pink colour). it’s all over tumbler & pinterest.

I was looking for one since a very long time. finally i could fetch one from link
SR STORE

Its winter season , yet it’s not so cold in Mumbai , that trench could not be a necessity , yet one can slay by wearing it like a dress or layering denim look.

The trench coat. It’s on just about every stylish woman’s must-have list and favorite things to wear. The French have rightly mastered the art of wearing a trench.  Because they wear it when it rains and when it’s not raining, that’s why. A trench coat is très chic in every way and today I’m going to show you why I love trench coats, and how to wear one. . .

25498094_1554007961312915_9213702081569674047_n

 

The same can be said for more classically tailored styles like the belted trench  classic . These timeless shapes receive seasonal attention from the high street, with many shops offering playful alternatives in a range of fabrics and colours.

There’s no doubt that a trench coat is a staple piece in every fashionista’s wardrobe, but this season there’s a new way to wear it. We had a look at our favourite fashion bloggers who’ve been rocking the trench coat, and the trick is to get it off the shoulders and fastened around the waist. 

Ever wanted to add a special touch to these classic wardrobe staples?

Unfailingly elegant style is hard to come by in today’s vast world of endless options. However, we can experiment with attire .

EXPIRIMENTING WITH OUFITS IS REALLY FUNNNNNN ❤ ❤ ❤

OCCASIONAL BLACK :- leather on leather

wassuup guys !!!

 I know you all are already in a FESTIVE MOOD.

With the holiday season just around the corner, it’s hard not thinking about what sort of festive looks to wear, especially when there are so many things to choose from. This total black outfit is perfect for Christmas here in the MUMBAI  because it gives off a subtle glamour that is ideal for any holiday party.

And off course black is my all time favourite colour 🙂

jen

The key to pulling off an all black outfit like this for these sorts of occasions is mixing and matching materials to add dimension rather than being minimal and flat. Leather pants are always my go to for adding a bit of edge to any look, but for a holiday party I can .

RED BOMMER JACKET : I picked this one from SR store for just rs 799/-
Style tip : unzip your jacket or shirt from top to create an OFF- SHOULDER LOOK .

25398905_1553317078048670_5972350862170272299_n.jpg

It’s subtly is what makes it so alluring and I especially love that the details are still visible  Plus, the loose fit of the torn effect denim jacket  ( I WEAR THIS DENIM JACKET ALMOST EVERYDAY) 🙂 😉 enhances the overall elegance of this look.

The black leather boots from H&M , with silver studs on it has enhanced the look even more !!!

I got am amazing deal on the leather pants, H&M was running flat 70 % off on leather apparels, (Rs 750/-) 😉

25442923_1553303144716730_1314387884191941552_n.jpg

To finalise this holiday outfit, it never hurts to accessorise with a bag , I choose NO JEWELLERY LOOK  just to keep it simple , The size is just right for any Christmas or New Years party, as it’s able to hold all of my essentials, plus it compliments the entire ensemble just right to get further inspiration for these sort of special occasions, I’ve been looking at the upcoming collections of ( HM India ) and there is everything from colourful prints to denim basics. With so much variety, it’s hard to not find exactly what I’m looking for, which is great. A wider selection is better than a limited one!

I loved the wooden background , everything looked so vintage
