When I think of a “Fashionista” this girl definitely comes to mind. Read on to find out where Ashley’s love for fashion came from and why she adores Rihanna and Olivia Palmero!

Spice Up Your Manicure!

So far we have gotten ourselves trendy outfits, chic accessories, that hot handbag and those killer stilettos, but we completely forgot about our pretty nails! Nails make for an important part of grooming, and it is important that we keep them in the best of shape all the time. Neglecting manicures and pedicures have known to create problems, for example in-growth, leading to infected finger and toe nails requiring operation. Hence it is necessary that we regularly get those toes and fingers cleaned up.  However along with keep them neat and tidy, we also need to keep them up-to-date with the latest trends pertaining to colors and the very trendy nail art.

Something that recently caught my eye was the Ryan Gosling nail art. Can you imagine have faces of pretty boys pasted on your nails? Distracting much? Indeed! The name says it all, HOT-MAN-ICURE; created by MTV style editor Chrissy Mahlmeister. These are nail wraps to be applied over white or clear nail paints and you can choose Continue Reading

Mixing Mayhem!

mixed-prints- feature image 1
Have you taken notice to the latest and very quirky rage this season of …Mixing prints??? Hot or Not? I am still in a fix about this one, nevertheless thought penning it down and sharing it with you guys would make it a bit clear for me. Let’s see if at the end of this post we ditch this trend or embrace it. Excited!

Think chocolate on grilled chicken?  Tad strange combination? Well this trend is pretty much on similar lines. Polka dots with leopard print. Florals with stripes. This trend is for those who are not afraid to move out of their comfort zone, be a little crazy with the mishmashes and be able to pull it off like top ensembles.

I am an avid traveler. I travel overseas at least twice a year and within the country at least once every month. However even before I begin my packing for the period of stay, I decide what I am going to be wearing during my travel. This is what takes most of my preparation time, as I want to make sure I have on the right kind of attire, especially when considering the mode of transport and what kind of weather I will be landing in.  For most part, I Continue Reading

Beach Bum…

ready for the beach feature
Summertime! Lets hit the beach! I am an absolute all…out…beach…bum. The sun, the sand and the seas, is my idea of pure bliss. I eagerly await for this time of the year, when there is eternal sunshine, a state of peace, and serene waves that calm your heart rate down. The “beachwear season” also happens to be one of my favorite times of the year to play dress up. It is so easy going, relaxing and full of great colors, it makes my eyes gleam! Bikinis, sarongs, maxis, hats, sunglasses, flip-flops and suntan lotion are few of the most important things on my list when packing for a beach trip.

Shopping for a new season also means keeping the current trends in mind. Its never necessary to completely follow the trends, but mix and match, make sure it flatters you body, skin and complexion and you might just end Continue Reading
