Jewelry scavenging @ The Street Fest

I chanced upon The Street Fest at the Pheonix Marketcity Pune, while on a stroll, window shopping. (Window shopping, yes, such a mind-booster!) It was a riot of delicious cupcakes, foot-tapping music and of course a host of creative designers and stores, all set to turn you into a greedy little monster. I also realized that it's a good thing to have your weapon with you at all times (of course, the camera).

Some gorgeous earrings at the Angootha Chaap stall by Rishika Dossa. My oh my, wasn't I tempted!

Are you summer-ready?

Summer's all about bold, extravagant hues; vivid florals, neon nails, flouncy hats and vintage bling. Here are 7 random summer essentials to get you started for the season!

It's the cardinal rule of summer makeup. A lipstick fanatic like me is virtually crippled without bright lips this summer. Say hello to bold pinks, oranges and pretty neutrals, and kiss burgundies and maroons goodbye. And embrace matte lipsticks, like these truly AMAZING matte versions by NYX, for long-lasting and summery colors.

5 Must-have Organizers

We ladies, unlike our male counterparts, have a preposterous number of  lipsticks, baubles and whatnots; They may be seemingly unassuming BUT organizers have always been cardinal in helping women keep their cool. ;) 
And then there are these go-to ones your dresser (walk-in, if you're that lucky) cannot should not do without. 

Hold your everyday makeup / most used makeup in a basic tray. You can also pick a tray with compartments for easier storage. If you're an always-late person like me, this might help things get better; maybe your boss will like you more.

Why of course, you can have a blush bar too. Store what you hoard the most (and are most likely to misplace) in a neat holder that you can easily locate.
P.S. Now I want a blush bar!

I'm not exactly a nail varnish lover/hoarder; But everyone has their go-to colors, don't they? Save one of those dessert bowls to hold the ones you most often use. Others to get tucked nice and safe elsewhere in a maybe a Chumbak tin.

Hand-me-downs from mother/grandmother. Coax your mother/grandmother for a few of these and you shall be rewarded with organizers extraordinaire.

Things that don't fit in trinket holders must find a happy home, no? Jewelry hangers to the rescue, literally! While I DIY-ed this one (wait for the next post), you can find plenty of jewelry hangers online. Check Organice.

What are your go-to organizing essentials?

Fatal red, hazardous blue.

Tank: Splash
Pants: Spring Break (old)
Shoes: Zara
Rings: Forever 21, Blur 

This reckless blue pair of pants have been sitting pretty in my closet since forever. I don't often get the right occasion to flaunt a bold pair of high waist pants, but when I do, it has to mostly be this one. High waist pants / trousers have been around since longer than i can remember; printed ones add even more spunk to the look. High-waist-anything lends you the illusion of tallness and makes you look slimmer. You can add to the illusion with an edgy pair of heels. P.S. I see myself wearing those heels everywhere!

While you can team these up with over-sized tops and fierce shirts, you can also tone down the drama with basic tees and tanks. Add interesting colors, invent combinations, play with accessories. Summer's here, make the most of it! (Although I've already started to loathe the summer sun. NEED the winter chill back. Now.)

What do you think of this look?

Have you taken part in the most recent contest in association with WINK? It's super fun and super easy and you could win yourself one of their lovely bags to overdo this summer! Click here to know more.
