Dresses for Eid and other festivals!

Hello, beautiful souls there!

I am back and I hope you guys missed me 😉 I missed you all too. Due to Ramadan ,I didn’t post, cause I dedicate this month to pay gratitude towards Allah🙏. Believe me i,It helps me to be a better person. Anyways let’s move on to our today’s post 🤗 which I am very excited to share with you 😘

When it’s about festivals like EID & DIWALI and functions like WEDDING & OTHER FAMILY FUNCTIONS we always chose traditional attire.And you all will agree that nothing can beat the anarkali suits. So here I am sharing with you my two favorite Anarkali dresses.

Also see the (modest look for office)

Anarkali suits basically inspired by Anarkali.yea that saleem and anarkali wali anarkali so you can say that you are wearing a fashion of Mughal era. No wonder why we feel so royal or princessy in this dress 👸. It consists 3 ensembles 1 a waist fitted kallidar frock 2 churidar bottom and 3 dupatta.

Dress -1

Here I am wearing fucsia pink Anarkali suit which has golden and blue lace over its border and around the neckline. I liked it in one glance. it has so much ghera that if u have petite body type then you will look awesome in this Anarkali suit. Pairing it with golden juti and golden earrings. completing this look with smoky eyes and pink lips. isn’t good for EID or any functions ??

It was little loose for me but I didn’t alter 🤓

Look-2

Here I am wearing orange floor length Anarkali suit which has golden and green printed lace over its border, and silver work on its neckline are which gives it very beautiful and classy look with matching churidar and dupatta. Pairing this look with the same golden jutti and matching earrings. completing this look with a sleek bun and shimmery wallet. and I am ready for Eid😉.

You know the best part about these dresses are they look heavy but they are light weighted and very comfortable. cause, for me! Comfort comes first.🤗

That’s all for today’s, and yea don’t forget to tell me which one you liked most and what you are wearing on this Eid? Meet you with next post till then be happy and be stylish 😍👸

A Product Every One Must Have! If you want to save your skin from sun damage

Hello beautiful souls there!

This product is very necessary when you go out side, especially in the summer, you should take care of your skin more.

Yes, it’s true, do not ignore this at any cost,
you have heard it so many times that, do not step out without applying SUNSCREEN. And I am also saying the same, even don’t forget to applying it, when you are at home cause sun rays can reach there too. You already know that what damage can make sun rays.
Harmful UV and UVB Rays can damage your skin, it can cause uneven skin, premature aging and the worst, skin cancer.
So its allowed to step out without kajal,mascara even without lipstick but don’t go outside without applying SUNSCREEN.

There are different types of sunscreen available in the market, every makeup brand has their own sunscreen range, so pick the best one, which has minimum 30 SPF.

Here I am sharing my favourite SUNSCREEN.

LOTUS HEBAL SAFE SUN, SPF 30.

I was using it for a long time, but the only drawback was, it’s stickiness and I think this is the only reason, nobody likes to apply sunscreen. I was in always in search of a non sticky SUNSCREEN, that’s why I bought some other products but none of them worked.

And guess what, I found it in same brand LOTUS HERBAL.

Lotus Herbal Safe Sun.

This is the gel based formula and comes with SPF 50. and you know best part about this product is it’s non stickiness.

It’s very smooth, light, and gel formula of this product gets absorb in skin so easily, now you will love to apply sunscreen. believe me I am telling you this after using from months.🤗

And it has 50 spf so it’s best option for those who has outdoor work, like bloggers , we have to shoot in the hot summer, so it is best option for you guys, believe me guys its a must buy. As you can see it comes in tube,so you can carry it in your handbag. And it costs only Rs.440/-.

It prevents your skin from all types of sun damage, like, premature aging, tanning, uneven skin tone and also from skin cancer.

At last I would just say that, apply whatever brand or product but don’t step out without applying sunscreen🌸🤗

that’s all for today, meet you with next post till then be beautiful and keep smiling.😊

Apps, every new Blogger Must have!

Hello all newbies!
This post is for those, who just started blogging or those who are thinking about it.
let’s be honest not everyone have that money to spend on the apps in starting, and also that fear of failure what if I couldn’t make money through this blogging. you are right in starting no one will suggest to spend money on apps, yea you can spend buying your domain or investing a good quality of camera, if you have that money but there are lots of apps which you can use free and are that are very helpful in your blogging . here I am listing some apps which I personally using, and are necessary for every blogger/vlogger and I found these through lots of trial and err in my 4 months blogging.

1 Snapseed
This app is a multi tasking app, it gives you so many features and the best part it’s free.😇 that’s why I am keeping it at no. one😉 there are lots of editing tools which offers only few features in free version🙄, but this app gives you a lot in free🤗.

KEY FEATURES-

• 29 tools and filters, including: Healing, Brush, Structure, HDR, Perspective

• Selective filter brush – and I like exposure one.

• Tune Image – adjust exposure and colour automatically or manually with fine, precise control

• Details – magically brings out surface structures in images

• Tune Image – adjust exposure and colour automatically or manually with fine, precise control

• Details – magically brings out surface structures in images

• Crop – crop freely or to standard sizes

• Rotate – rotate by 90° or straighten a skewed horizon

I am rating this app 10/10😇👏

Example

2- Canva

This app is like life saviour for bloggers.
I mean everyone needs templates design for their articles, but its not easy to prepare by yourself, this app gives you so many options, making a logo or creating a templates, here is everything. Canva makes it easy for everyone,
there are thousands of designs, templates, you just have to select which one you want. and the best part about this app is, it categorised by social media platform and their required sizes,which makes it more easy and user friendly, though, it’s a paid app but it gives a lot of options in the free version also, and you can share your creation directly from the app. so you don’t have to pay if you are a starter, here are some key features of this app.

key features –
– Flyers
– Posters
– Blog banners
– Invitations
– Cards

– Logos

I will give it 10/10😇

Example

3. VSCO

this app is also for editing, I use it for my Insta themes, though its a paid app and don’t offer much for free version but I still liking it, cause no distracting adds and some free themes are awesome, I am using C1 chromatic filter for my Insta feed and I am in love with this theme and also loving the B5 B&W Classic. I really liked it’s concept short and crispy, so you can also try it for your Instagram😇.

I will give it 7 star just because it doesn’t offer more for free😉

Example

that’s all for today’s post, meet you with next post, what? just 3 apps I use?? no dear, there are still few more apps but as you know that I don’t believe In very long post so this post has another part, you just have to wait for that until next week. Till then take care and keep smiling.

Fusion means the mixture of two or more culture basically in art field.
since fashion started fashion industry gets inspiration from other culture and mix it with their own and create a new piece, like if you see beaded or heavy embroidered western dresses, they can be inspired by India, and saree gown is perfect example of western inspired, we do more fusions and the reason behind this is we have lots of culture in our own country and we love wearing our Indian clothes, but comfort and style attract us towards western fashion. As we are in global so there is nothing like eastern and western now it has become fusion fashion where so love wearing jeans with Kurta (kurta looks for office for casual day out and the other hand we opt SAREE GOWN for wedding parties. And the best part about it is, it never goes out of fashion, whether you are a jeans girl or skirt or you love wearing Indian attire. ALL you have to do just be little creative.

So get ready for making experiment with your looks, which I personally love the most. And today I have created all looks keeping summer in mind so you can say these are very easy and breezy looks.

Look-1 SKIRT WITH T-SHIRT & DUPATTA

Here I am wearing, black t-shirt with multi colored yoke skirt (fitted on waist line) which is our general pick for summer, but here m giving it a traditional touch with draping a matching dupatta like a saree which is giving a very different whole look, tell me have you ever thought about this twist if no then this summer is best for this experiment wooohoo✋🤗. bold pink lips and chandbali are just completing this look. perfect example of going out of box or being experimental.

Look-2 JEANS WITH KURTA
