One Tadka Martini please!

Now that the caption got you all curious, let me tell you this post has nothing to do with cooking, it has nothing to do with drinking and no! it has nothing to do with creative naming either (though I must say I’m mighty proud of “Tadka Martini” Patent material right? Loljk!)

Onam Special Ft. Mahatriya

Hailing from a city called Palakkad which lies almost on the line dividing Tamil Nadu and Kerala has its own strange perks! We get to celebrate Keralite festivals without looking like a South Indian going on Karva Chauth fasts (er…yes I have some such friends! :P)

Of Sneakers and Shirtdresses

Heylo blogging world! It’s so good to be back in my favourite writing space again! I’ve been having a re-starting trouble for quite a while now. Recently I picked up quite a few stuff from the Koovs.com sale and I decided there could be no better time, rime or reason to come back to my blog and show you what I got! So here goes. 

Shirtdresses have always intrigued me. “How can people wear a straight piece of clothing with no shape or cut or structure and be okay with that?” I asked myself. Always being on the “healthier” side of things I never wanted to try a Shirtdress regardless of how obviously comfortable it was going to be. All this changed when I saw a really cool denim Shirtdress on the Koovs.com sale at a very reasonable price. “Let’s try it” I thought and I was quite literally sold on the idea the minute I saw it! ๐Ÿ˜

Being the perfect length, this denim Shirtdress hit just above my knee. Pairing them with my trusted white sneakers was a no-brainer and thus emerged what I suppose must be the simplest and most comfortable looks I have posted on my blog!  

There are no pretensions of perfection when you step into a Shirtdress. You are what you are with all you perfect imperfections (so much lyrics flicking!) and you got to embrace that to actually rock a shirt dress. 


My only two accessories for this look were my white sneakers and my blue sunnies. Since it was an early morning shoot and I was rushing, I didn’t have time to apply even the very basic makeup I usually put on for shoots! 

Outfit Details: Shirtdress – Koovs.com, Sneakers – Promod, Sunnies – Missamore.com 

{Oh Shoot!}

My wonderful and talented photographer for the day was RamKeshav check out his work on Facebook , his Website or Instagram. The wonders he creates with his camera are just amazing! Can you believe all the pictures of the shoot were taken in daylight and the lighting effects were all purely his and his one love- his camera ( that’s what he calls it!) Thank you Ram! I’m going to make the most of our Collab ASAP because this dude is going to be going places very soon! ๐Ÿ˜ 

Summer Styles IV/IV – Off to Brunch!

A nice three day weekend only means one thing! A delayed post ๐Ÿ˜†! But this is a good one so I strongly urge you to read on! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Summers are a definite no pants time! Unfortunately there are only so many options when you try to fully remove pants from your outfit equation! So I sat thinking about how I could sneak pants into this look book and lo and behold! ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ

PALAZZO pants are the answer to all your sweaty qualms! They are comfy airy and totally fit into our “summer no pant but need something like it” condition! 

I went for the boss lady look and the pictures just don’t tell the whole story of how I was giggling in between each shot! ๐Ÿ˜†

I never usually have the confidence to truly pull off a print on print look but the minute I bought this crop top I knew the abstract patterns and the whites, blues and greys would totally compliment the neat vertical symmerty of these dark blue palazzo pants! 

At last a smile! lol

I absolutely loved the way these pictures have turned out! The blue of the random garage door and the words on it, the casual spread of the dried pink Bougainville and the shadows and sunny spots created by the trees add such a classy charm to the whole setting! Thank you Sneha Chandrashekar (Instagram handle: @purplecurlss) for these spectacular images! ๐Ÿ˜ 

Outfit Details: Crop top – Stay Fabulous (Facebook), Palazzo Pants – Splash, Heels – Gift from a special person from Zara’s โค๏ธ, Watch – Tommy Hilfiger


Though I came a day late the stuff I brought along were pretty latest right!? ๐Ÿ˜‚ Hope you enjoyed this blog post! I’m so bummed it’s the last of the summer look book series because I had soooo much fun creating it. But fret not I have a couple of really cool blog ideas I’ll be working on very soon! So until next time, ciao! โค๏ธ

Summer Style – Part III/IV – Nature Hues

Hi you guys! It feels great to be sticking to a routine and coming back to the blog every Monday ๐Ÿ˜€ wonder how long that’s gonna last for… Anyway let’s fuggedaboudit for a moment now and talk about the next summer styling idea and it is *drumroll* the traditional Salwar/Chudidhar and Kameez! 


The salwar kameez is a traditional Indian three piece suit which has a kameez which is a top that you can equate to a knee length dress and a salwar/patiala pant/Chudidhar which is the pant and a dupatta which is shawl we cover our torso with! 

The Patiala or simply a salwar pant has a lot of gathering and looks great with a short top or a tshirt even! The Chudidhar bottom is comes more like a tightish pant (that’s what I’m wearing in this look!) 

This outfit was infact bought on my birthday! A gift from me to me ๐Ÿ˜› last year! It wasn’t a set when I bought it (just putting that in so you would be like oooh how do you mix n match so well!! Lol!)  

This salwar has Churi sleeves which means the sleeves like the pant has gatherings at the end too! Its pure cotton and feels great to wear! 

Salwars in general are a great option to wear in summer and whenever it’s possible to ditch the dupatta, do it because honestly, minimalism in any which way possible in a 40โ€ขC weather is extremely essential! 


I’m just realizing all the three summer looks I have put together this time are yellow and green hues..er so much for variety! 

i will stand up on the bench and pose. Because I can!


Outfit Details: The whole set – top, pant and dupatta – Fab India, Slippers – Koblerr, Earrings – Kushals


When we did the whole photoshoot for the four outfits I must say this outfit was my least favourite because I was feeling all conscious in it…I know it’s just a salwar! What’s to feel conscious right? So anyway, I was dreading seeing the pictures of this one but I must say this Sneha Chandrashekar knows what she’s doing! Follow her on Instagram where she goes by the handle @purplecurlss! โค๏ธ

That ladies (and the very few gentlemen who read my blog!) brings us to the end of Part 3 of the 4 part summer series! So tell me are you enjoying the looks? Did you try to create a summer look yourself? Comment below cause I would love to know. Have a fabulous week! Bye! 

Summer Style – Part II/IV – Beach Vibesย 

Summers, mild ones atleast are associated with the beach! Nothing can beat a cool summer day at the beach and being in a tropical country in general and a coastal city in specific we usually get a lot of Vitamin Sea! This outfit symbolizes beachy vibes for me and once you take a look you’ll agree too! 


Long skirts are the shizz for summer days and the wind beneath (or to be honest in between!) your legs is priceless! 


I paired this dandelion printed skirt with a yellow hakoba (?) top and a last minute addition were these pair of reflector shades which I flicked from a friend who came to help us out with the photoshoot! 


I love the casual vibe of this photoshoot and I had better liked it because I paid the auto driver a good amount to shoot with his auto rickshaw! :/ 


As beachy as this outfit may look, Sneha Chandrashekaran (follow her on Instagram @purplecurlss (yes a double s)) my photographer, stood her ground and flat out refused to do this shoot on the sea shore and I’m glad she thought this was a way cooler idea, it was after way cooler this way, wasn’t it! 


Outfit Details: Top – Splash, Skirt – Stay Fabuluous, Reflector shades – Flicked from friend (she bought it at Forever 21 though!) 


Hope you guys enjoyed part two of the four part series! Excited about the remaining two too! Have a fantastic week ahead! Lots of love
