All About You From DP: Ethnic Love!

Hi there,

So many of you must be knowing that I recently got married and moved to Pune with my in-laws. Ever since the time I have gotten married, my style statement and preferences have changed a little. I don't know if you guys can make that out but I have been loving pretty long kurtas and pastel colours. Have you guys checked out the ethnic collection of All About You From Deepika Padukone? I have always loved the collection specially curated by Deepika herself and the ethnic collection is pretty amazing. I am a big fan of Deepika and her style and All About You has outfits which are inspired by her style. So if you haven't checked out the collection then click here

The ethnic collection is inspired by the modern romantic theme and has mostly all pastel shades. I love wearing pretty pastel colors and recently mint green has become one of my favourites. All About You From Deepika has a wide collection of suits, kurtas and duppattas in different styles. They have really pretty floral prints too and you guys know how obsessed I am with florals. I can wear them all throughout the year and they never seem to go out of fashion. The outdits have very intricate designs and exquisite detailing. You can check out the whole ethnic collection on Myntra here!

So I recently got a gorgeous mint green kurta from All About You From Deepika Padukone's Ethnic Range and completely fell in love with it. You can check out the pictures below and see how I styled it. The chanderi mint greet kurta has gorgeous embroidery on the neck, sleeves and at the bottom. I am loving the intricate and fabulous design on the kurta and the fitting is just perfect. I styled the outfit with a churidaar, a pair of white heels and have kept simple makeup with bold lips. You can shop this outfit from here

Travel Diaries: Star Cruise Gemini

The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page. 
-Saint Augustine

Hi there!
So being an Army kid, I have always loved traveling and my dad is crazy about randomly picking us up and going for long drives to discover new places. My husband, Parleen also travels a lot all over the world but majorly for work as he is a singer and he has concerts at different places. I always wanted to travel with him ever since the time we started dating 5.5 years back and now that we are married, he took me to one of his international shows. We went to Singapore from where we boarded the Star Cruise, Gemini and we sailed on it for a week before docking back in Singapore. Since me and Parleen just completed 6 months of our Wedding today, I thought of sharing our travel diary with you guys. 

The Cruise Ship was huge and it was so much fun. I have never been on a ship before and being on in for a week straight was amazing. We had amazing food, nice cafe, many entertaining activities like water zumba, d.j parties at night, drama shows and then of course Parleen's show was there. I was the official photographer for him at the show so I was busy covering everything. It's like a fairytale to have your husband perform and sing like that and dedicate songs to you on the stage. I fall in love with him a little more every time I see him perform. You can check out his Youtube Channel Here! We had a super cute cabin in the ship with a window view which was to die for. Every morning I would wake up and go open the curtains to see the beautiful vast ocean. We actually barely slept that one week, we would just have our drinks, sit on the deck, take long walks across the ship and then stare at the water for hours under the moonlight. People following me on my Snapchat (lachicalocablog) would know that :D

It was truly magical! Our ship docked thrice and once we got off at a pretty place in Malaysia called Penang. The place had beautiful architecture with everything being white. It looked absolutely amazing. Me and Parleen clicked a lot of pictures together for celebrating our 6 months together as a married couple and here are some of them.

Olay White Radiance Routine

“Beauty is in the skin! Take care of it, oil it, clean it, scrub it, perfume it, and put on your best clothes, even if there is no special occasion, and you'll feel like a queen. If society is hard on you, fight back by pampering your skin. Skin is political. Otherwise why would the imams order us to hide it?” 

Hi guys!
A few days back I told you guys about how I have started using Olay's White Radiance range of products and today I am going to talk about how I have been regularly using these products and how they are helping me. Olay's White Radiance range consists of a brightening foaming cleanser, brightening intensive moisturizer, brightening night essence, brightening intensive serum and brightening intensive lotion. We should make sure that we do not experiment with our skin a lot and do apt amount of Skincare. I tried Olay's products and they suited my skin a lot so now I swear by these products. Olay's white radiance range doesn't give you superficial fairness but gives natural radiance from deep within your skin which is long lasting. 

I start my day by cleaning my face with Olay's foaming cleanser which creates a fine lather and cleans up my face thoroughly. I have oily skin type and it's very important for me to keep my face clean with a face wash which removes oil completely and leaves my face fresh. I use this face cleanser atleast twice a day and it helps in keeping my face glowing even after a rough day. After cleansing I make sure to use the brightening intensive serum by Olay. It helps in closing my pores and reduces the chances of my pores getting clogged with dirt. After this I use Olay's brightening intensive moisturizer with SPF 24. It's very important for us to use moisturizers with SPF so that our skin is protected against the harmful UV rays. So while going out or staying at home, and no matter what the weather is, I make sure to have the moisturizer on. Olay also has brightening intensive lotion which comes with SPF 24. I carry it with me and use it on my neck, arms and other exposed or dry areas on my body. It comes with a pump so it's super convenient to use. How can we end the routine with a night cream. Olay has a brightening intensive night essence cream which helps in repairing your skin and getting your inner glow back. 

The best part about Olay's products is that these penetrate deep within your dull and damaged skin and helps in getting your lost glow back naturally. It takes about 4 weeks for these products to start working and then you would see how your skin tone becomes even and your get your natural radiance back. It also helps in enhancing skins metabolic rate which helps in reducing dark spots. Olay white radiance range of products penetrate 10 layers deep within your skin and gives a long-lasting glow from within. These products have been working out great for me and I would highly recommend them for you too.

Outfit fix in less

I'm not interested in clothes that just convey a certain look or fashion. Clothes for me have always been a form of self-expression. 
-Phoebe Philo

Hey there!
Are you guys also feeling that suddenly all of your friends are getting married?
Whenever I am on Facebook I see a couple of pre-wedding shoots or some marriage pictures saying happily married. And now all of a sudden some of my closest friends are getting married. As much as I am excited, I am scared about my outfits too. Between all the work, traveling and hectic schedule, I have to figure out how to get my lehengas stitched and I will have to find time to go hunt for the cloth too. I am sure all of you guys will agree that we don't want to spend a lot on our outfits at someone else's wedding and specially when you have to figure out so many different outfits, I am going to go crazy! 

But yay! I came across this website called Craftsvilla! The minute I opened the website I went went straight to the designer lehenga section and voila! I same some absolutely stunning outfits which looked so gorgeous. I was literally stalking the website for hours and was trying to finalize what all I should wear. They have really pretty lehengas for all occasions. Check out the pictures below to see some of my favourite lehengas which I am planning on buying. I guess I am going to wear yellow one for the mehandi function, the floral one for the morning wedding, the peach one for sangeet and the pink floral one during haldi. Wondering how come I am shopping so much with my budget constraints? You are going to go crazy when you hear the price range of these lehengas. All of these are priced between Rs. 1500!

We know that we don't like repeating our outfits and we still want to have a unique outfit for every function we attend so why not try the oh so reasonable lehengas by Craftsvilla? I am looking forward to wearing these lehengas and getting them stitched according to my style. You can always mix and match and add a touch of your style to these semi-stitched lehengas. I shall get back to you with a review of all the outfits after I wear them at my friend's wedding. 
Much love!

My different looks with TitanEyePlus

I believe that fashion is the ultimate form if self expression therefore it really depends on my mood. 
-Nicole Richie

Hey guys!
I strongly believe that our taste in fashion changes with our mood. When I am super happy, I want to wear pink and more of white. When I am upset or feeling gloomy, I wear deep red or black. And when I am feeling way too excited I am mostly wearing neons. Why be the same monotonous person everyday when you can be someone exciting everyday. Also, what I wear mostly depends on what I am panning to do that day. So if I am going for coffee with my girls I will probably wear something casual and comfy. Or if I am going for a bike ride, I would like to look more edgy. We all love having variations in our outfits everyday based on the about things so why not have variations in our accessories too? 

Did you guys check out the latest collection of Titan Eye Plus called the Flip Collection? So Titan just came up with these range on new frames where we can change the temples as per our choice. The frames come with one set of temples and we can buy more temples in different designs to give ourselves a new look everyday. How cool is that? So now we can change the look of our frames depending on our mood and outfit. I personally picked up a couple of different temples with frames and styled my outfits depending on my mood and plans for the day. 

Look 1: Edgy
Bold lips and biker leather jacket! I am crazy about bikes and dressing up edgy. Sometimes I just want to pair up a white tee with edgy leather jacket and have my bold lips on. Me and my husband love going out for long bike rides. For this look I wore my Titan Eye Plus black frames with red temples. I love how well they are going with my whole look and enhancing my personality. 

Look 2: Girls Day Out
Sometimes I am very edgy and sometimes depending on my mood I am super girly. When I am very happy and planning a playful girls day out, I would prefer wearing a pair of cute pink frames with pink temples. I would definitely go all overboard with my pinkness. Check out these super cute frames I am wearing with an off shoulder top and floral skirt. 

Look 3: Sporty/ Playful 
On most days I love being in my sneakers and oversized jackets or shirts. Don;t you guys too feel super comfy in them? I styled my outfit with a pair of triangular design temples from Titan Eye Plus. I love how you can just pick a pair of glasses and keep modifying them to match your mood. How convenient is that? 

Look 4 : Formal
Well sometimes when I have my work mode on and I am in no mood of drama, I put on my Titan Eye Plus frames with a pair of simple black or dark blue temples. When I am working and attending meetings, I like to wear monochrome tones and be all simple. Titan Eye Plus Flip collection has many more frames which can match your different moods and complete your outfits.
