True meaning of Friendship..

During one of these daily night readings of mine, I stumbled upon this really beautiful article about the true meaning of friendship and couldn’t stop myself from sharing it you all. One of a very few write-ups that actually takes on to explaining the depth of this relationship. I totally hear it hence sharing it with my blogger friends. Here’s the link to the piece –

It speaks of a Japanese word Kenzoku which literally means family but there is more to it so go ahead and find out if you one or few of those Kenzoku in your life. I think I have few! 🙂

Love to the BlingTreeG family!

All I see is Magic!

Yes true that. All I see is magic around me.

Everything around is the wonder of the positive energy that blankets us in the warmth of love.

Don’t just see.. try to look, my friend.

Life has the magical power to sparkle the rock…

Just give that one last shot after your last shot to grasp the rainbow. You tried so hard, I know.. You gave your everything, I know. May be you thought that this is what you have but someone somewhere believes that you have more than this within you. You are my hero. You are the warrior.

Love will protect you. So love with all you have and cherish of what’s around.

Magic begins when you look beyond naked eye.

Have faith…

Love to the BlingTreeG family..

 

Patience!

S says 😉

Awesome are those who are gifted with immense patience as the biggest wonders are experienced by those who didn’t give up till the grand finale after the finale.

‘Those’ who can survive the turmoil of emotions, walk through the hardships of this plastic world, believe in the miracles at the end of all the darkness are the real ‘dream catchers‘.

………………………..

……and I was summoning my patience at Dallas airport where we (S+S) were stranded 😀 as the flights to San Francisco were getting cancelled due to bad weather  … Spending a night at sleepy San Diego airport…

…A story from our beginning…but before that, a glimpse of SFO..

IMG_4315

…misty sea…

IMG_4316IMG_4317IMG_4318

…while everyone was enjoying the beautiful golden gate bridge, I stole a glimpse to the little track leading to the blend of land and water…

IMG_4319IMG_4320IMG_4321

..breathtaking architecture..

IMG_4323IMG_4324

..loved the walks on these ups and downs..

During our HM, we experienced the never ending delays of our connecting flight to SFO in Dallas which was finally cancelled due to bad weather… What an unexpected start! The “commencement of HM” saga started in the morning and the episode of “us reaching SFO” ended next day in the afternoon. It took us one and half day to reach our destination from Houston 😀 ..

So how did we end up spending a night in San Diego airport? That’s the mid story.. After the flights to San Francisco were cancelled, we were given the option to fly to Oakland or San Diego. “I could see the dismay on faces of my fellow passengers. Everyone was travelling home for holidays and airport was buzzing with unsatisfied customers of Southwest. I still remember the girl sitting opposite to me and tears in her eyes when they announced all the flights to SFO were cancelled. Thankfully I think she got a seat in the flight to Oakland.” After getting assurance from ground staff that there are flights flying to SFO or San Jose from there, we got on to a flight to San Diego. But did it change the pace of our travel? .. we only wished… We landed at San Diego airport and got another surprise – all the flights were cancelled and airport closed at 11 pm 😀 We were asked to leave the southwest waiting areas & hence the night at San Diego airport instead of our warm snugly bed in SFO 😉

Next day in the morning, we were the first one to reach the Southwest counter and got the tickets to San Jose. Yup, still no flights to SFO. One more interesting detail, our checked in luggage somehow ended up reaching Oakland (I am reminiscing all the memories and actually ROFL) 😀 .. They arranged it to reach our hotel in SFO. You won’t believe it but we reached the hotel before our luggage arrived 😉

Both of us are a strong believers in all the positives and hence in between all this mayhem we were able to find positive in the way things were working out for us. We also totally believe in –if you truly and I must insist TRULY want something, entire universe get into play to make sure you get it– so during the early stages of HM planning, we really wanted to include two items – San Jose & a train travel but couldn’t, due to some constraints. Universe had different plans for us 😀 We ended up flying to San Jose and then used Caltrain to reach SFO.  Yayiee… Train travel was so amazing, route was very beautiful.. Loved it. Also we got Southwest coupon of 200$ on each ticket for all the inconvenience. Everything worked out awesome for us and we ended up with an amazing story to share from our honeymoon… 😉

Writings from SFO – Weather was really bad for flight landings but was truly beautiful for honeymooners 😀 .. I always tell S that we saw SFO at its most beautiful (that’s what I believe in he he) and still have it buried in my heart and soul…

And for now I am keeping my patience with a smile on my lips,  in the lap of flowing time, keeping my brains accustomed to never-ending journey of this-n-that I try everyday, in the beautiful music and above all, hope & faith I have in my heart for all the positives in the beautiful world…:)

Hope you enjoy the post..

Love

I EXPRESS – BEAUTY BOX 3 & 4

Helloooo Beautiful people out there!!!  I hope all is well with everyone in the drawers and the wardrobes and the soul within… I am back again with another ‘I Express’ post on the BirchBox beauty boxes. I know I am few months late on expressing my feelings, but let’s face it ‘I get distracted very easily with the shine and glitter and the sitcoms..’ 😉 So without any further ado, here we go ….

IMG_3763

IMG_4204

May and June month beauty boxes came with the products in a huge range.. It had products for skincare, hair care and makeup covering almost all areas of my beauty regime. Let me start with hair care products..

IMG_3766IMG_3770

LOVE Smoothing Shampoo :  First of all, loved the name.. 🙂 Now moving on, after my first wash I was happy about it but with regular usage I felt more hair fall during the wash. Once the hair dries it leaves a smooth texture and does not frizz. I do not like the wet hair texture immediately after the wash, its kind of clammy. It does not have any prominent fragrance so that’s a bummer for me. So for me this shampoo is a Nah:(  It’s 2/5.

LOVE Smoothing Conditioner : I am not a hair conditioner person. I usually just shampoo my hair and am good to go. But to get rid of that clammy after effect of the Love Shampoo, I had to use this conditioner and it was not bad. My hair felt creamy and frizz proof.  The shine on the hair was noticeable. There is no amazing frangrancooooo… It’s 3/5 for me.

A suggestion for my fellow bloggers, if you plan to give this shampoo a try, please make sure to get this conditioner as well. Together they form a great team and I would give them 4/5 as a team…

IMG_3768IMG_3771

Benefit Hoola Matte Bronzer : A very very very hyped product and I had been wanting to try this for a very long time now. I must say I am NOT that impressed. I was expecting a lot out of this one. Let me start with some Pros – Texture is super pigmented, creamy and very easy to apply. It a beautiful matte. Sample product came with a good amount of it. Personally, I love this color. Cons – I do love the color but it is not that notable. When I swatch it, I can see a beautiful shade but when I start applying it, I don’t see much until I get on to it 😉 .. So for me it’s 3/5.

ModelCo Lip Lacquer – Creme Brulee : Here comes my internet knowledge base 😉 and it states that a lip lacquer does not contain wax like a lipstick and is not that long-lasting. This ModelCo lip lacquer claims to be long-lasting but aaaaa it does not stay for that long 😀 It is definitely very creamy which made the process of application a little difficult. The color was a little too much for me and hence I couldn’t dare to wear it alone. I combined it with lip stain from Stainiac and it worked amazing. Color toned down a lot and gave a very beautiful peachy pink color. Since I can combine this Lacquer with other lip products to come up with beautiful colors, I would give it a 3/5.

Please refer to my first ‘I Express’ post – BEAUTY BOX ONE – ‘I EXPRESS’ (A REVIEW)  to know about my experience with this Lip stain from Stainiac.

COOLA SPF 30 Organic Makeup Setting Spray : This is a very good setting spray. Its matte-finish and weightless as it claims. Sets the makeup effectively for an entire day at work. The formula has Green Tea & Aloe which keeps the skin hydrated. Also, it provides organic sun care with broad spectrum SPF30. It’s a 4/5 for me.

CLEAN Blossom Eau de Parfum : This is the last and my favorite product of May box 🙂 Seriously guys this is one  of the most beautiful fragrance that I have come across. It is so fresh and beautiful like soul of Spring.  Loved it and definitely going to buy a full size. It’s a 5/5 for me.

Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel -5 Deep : Wow. This product is just so awesome. Let’s start with the applicator which has a precision tip for shaping and makes applying this product very easy. The formula is very natural and does not give a very dramatic look like pencils. I love the way it makes the brows look fuller and natural at the same time. It is water-resistant so a big Yay! It stays on you until you wipe it off. For me, it’s a 5/5.

Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow : Okay so I am a big fan of BB creams & I was super excited to try this one and trust me, this is amazing. Gives that beautiful golden glow without looking over the top. It sets very smoothly and stays for long. Matte look. It claims to mask imperfection which it true as it gives a smooth finish but like any other BB cream it only provides a mild to medium coverage. So far, I am loving it. It’s a 5/5.

Balance Me Congested Skin Serum : Well this skin serum sure do smell soothing. It has a sweet smell which somehow reminds me of Cinnamon 😉 It is a good formula and treats skin really well. With constant use, you would see some improvement in the skin like reduced spots & blocked pores but I doubt its an instant resolution to blemishes as it claims.  For me, it’s 2/5 for now.

IMG_3778

Lavanila The Healthy Sunscreen Sport Luxe Face & Body Cream SPF 30 : This one has a mildly thick formula and works really well. It does not wear off with sweat and is water resistant (40 minutes). It is a double shield which works against sun and also helps to cool off the irritated skin. Works well for me. It’s a 3/5 for me.

Laura Geller New York Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator – Gilded Honey : Now this is a cult favorite. When you look at it first, it looks a soft creamy product but when you glide your finger on it, it is actually like powder which is hardened in swirls. When you pick the product on your brush or finger, it is very creamy and pigmented. One thing I learnt very quick about this illuminator is that ‘little goes a long way’. It gives a beautiful golden honey highlight but be very careful while using it as it is really very lit. For me, it’s a 4/5.

FORGOTTEN LOVE #CHAPTER 3

Hello there.. This is the third chapter in the series “Forgotten Love”. I have been working on this love series for a very long time now.. To know what happened earlier here, please click these links Chapter-1 and  Chapter-2 . Hope you enjoy the ifs and buts of Sarah and Edward.

Some people love to Live, but some live to Love… Are you one of those?

Noises coming from the lobby broke her concentration. She was indulged in the old yellow pages of her all time favorite Gone with the wind when she heard the paramedics. It took her only a second to get up from the chair and briskly walk outside. Sarah was standing in between the stretchers being dragged around the hallway, shrieking cries of people, families and friends nervous and asking questions in anxious voices. She stood there still, holding her book tightly towards her chest. It is not the first time when there had been a situation like this here but today was different for Sarah. Her life was taking bit of a serious turn today. Philip had asked her out and her mind was too busy since last night thinking about all the ifs and buts about him, if it is a good idea, is he the right guy for her. Tide of related and unrelated questions had swamped her world today. He is taking her out tonight on their first official date. They have now known each other for five years now and technically they were together but nothing was ever made official from either ends. After a lot of thought, she had finally decided to move on from her past and go on with her life. But she was restless and had been feeling jittery since morning and she knew it isn’t about Philip.

She kept her calm as she always do and checked about the situation. There had been a car collision that involved a women in her late 30’s and a family of four, a mother, a father and two boys. Nobody in the family were seriously injured, but the women was hurt severely and was in a critical condition. They were taking her to the emergency room for further treatment.

After checking again if she is required there, Sarah walked towards the changing room. She was off duty now and was about to leave but something inside her told that she is needed here. She started feeling uncomfortable and somehow her steps started moving towards the direction of operation theater where the women from the car clash was being operated. She stood near the big glass window and wondered if her family was informed, if she would be fine. Lost in her own thoughts, she was looking at the surgeons and her phone rang. It was Philip’s call. She answered. He was waiting outside for her. Keeping the phone back into her pocket, she took one last look at that patient and walked away.

——xxx——

They were sitting in the Patio facing the sea and breeze was playing with Sarah’s hair throwing them all over her face. She was trying to tuck them behind her ears. Philip took her hand in his and started speaking. “I love you Sarah. I have liked you since the day I drove you into this city. The life in your eyes brightens my day and I would want to wake up everyday looking into these eyes.” he poured his heart out. Sarah didn’t react, she was frozen with the explosion of emotions and surprise. She just smiled at him, looked deeply into his eyes. Her eyes started flooding with tears, she looked away at the vast horizon.

——xxx——

Her shift starts at seven in the morning, but she reached around half an hour early. She couldn’t sleep properly last night due to the unfolding of Philip’s emotions. She entered the hospital but her footsteps slowed down after seeing a familiar face in the lobby. Her feet kept on dragging. Edward was right in front of her, blocking her away. He looked very tired and a little smile flashed in his lips seeing her. “Hi Sarah, How are you?” he asked in a very tired voice. An entire night of turmoil was echoing in his voice. “I am good. You look so worn out. What happened? Is everything alright?” And then Edward told him about the accident. His wife was driving to San Francisco to meet her cousin and she lost control of her car which collided with another vehicle coming from the other direction. She was bought here last night and has undergone a surgery. She is under observation now. As he was explaining Sarah about the accident, she felt a knot in her stomach. “So it was Jane. That was her, the last night patient. Oh my God.”, she thought. Suzie, Edward’s daughter was sitting in the corner with her Grandma. She was tightly holding her Grandma who was assuring her that Mom will be alright. Sarah went through so many emotions in less than ten minutes, from being in confusion with Philips’ proposal, to getting shocked to see Edward there and feeling so heart broken for him and Suzie. It took her a while to take in all this information. She pulled herself together knowing that her friend needs her the most right now. They had not spoken to each other for past five years but they were no strangers to each other. They were childhood friends. She bought him some coffee and then went on to check about Jane’s condition.

After all the treatment and constant care from her family, Jane still didn’t show any sign of improvement and her health degraded. Sarah took care of Jane like her own. She was there by her bed all the time. She took care of Suzie and Edward. But after a week of struggle and pain, Jane succumbed to her injuries leaving everyone devastated.

——xxx——

Suzie became very close to Sarah. She was with her most of the time. Having a friend near him at this time helped Edward to cope up with his situation. They started spending a lot of time together. Days went by and it was soon time for them to go back. Sarah was trembling from within. She didn’t wanted this phase to end. She felt bad for thinking this way. It was the time of grief for her friend and she should be there just for supporting him without any of her past feelings crawling in.

They were all in her living room for the final goodbyes. Suzie was sitting close to Sarah holding her tightly, not ready to let go. Edward was talking to her mother outside in the Patio and he looked very serious as if he is trying to convince her for something. Philip was making coffee for everyone and he could hear Sarah trying to talk to Suzie that she will come and visit her all the time. In the meantime, there seem to be an argument raging outside and Edward stormed inside the living room leaving his mother behind. He came and sat opposite to Sarah and looked deep into her eyes. She felt uncomfortable. Edward started speaking, unaware or either forgetting about Philip’s presence in the next room. He started, “Sarah Dear,  I know what I am about to ask might seem very unreasonable, but I want you to hear me out completely, think about it and take you time. I don’t know if it is the right time because I think there had never been a right time. I will just go ahead and tell you what’s there in my heart. Dear, would you please come with us to LA and be with us?” Suzie’s eyes twinkled, unaware of the fact what’s coming next. Her Grandma walked in, took her hand and walked her to the next room. Edward continued, “Please don’t think wrong of me. This is not an outrageous thought just came into my head. I had always liked you, from the time I cannot even remember.” Sarah froze and kept staring at him. “It is all my fault. I could never tell you about my feelings thinking that you would just reject me. And then that one night with Jane, everything changed. She got pregnant and I could not leave her. I could not leave my baby alone. I had to be with her for Suzie. When I met you in Lake Tahoe years ago, those feelings came rushing by. I just wanted to spend time with you and never leave you there. I also tried to reach you but couldn’t. I had left you a voice mail thinking you would contact me, but you never did.” His eyes were watery and his throat choked. He went down on his knees in front of her, holding her hands in his, he rested his head on her lap and let go off the dwelling tears, “Please forgive me Sarah. Please.”

——xxx——

It was getting dark. They left in a hurry. Goodbye hugs and kisses were quick and Sarah came back upstairs where Philip was waiting for her. She came in and went running into his arms. She was holding him tight and uncontrollable stream of tears were rolling onto her cheeks. She was grateful to him for being so understanding, as right now she just wanted to keep her mind away from all that happened in her life in past few weeks. She closed her eyes, pushed herself on the couch, still holding him, she dozed off like a baby. She will worry about everything tomorrow, not today.

——xxx——

Who will be Sarah’s choice? Philip or Edward? To find out don’t forget to read the next and the final chapter…

Coming soon (hopefully 😀 ) in the blog you have subscribed to 😉 he he

Joy!

S says 😉

Life is simple.. If you don’t believe me then just look at the mirror and Smile.. You will be amused to know that it’s actually easy to find a moment of happiness. Only you are responsible for your own bliss.. 🙂

………….

….. and I was finding my joy in the state of Nevada which is considered to be largely a desert and we (S + S) were amused to see the snow covered Grand Canyon. In the chilling winter honeymoon…

Do you see those flying bunnies??

Through the window of The tour bus… 🙂 December 2015..

IMG_3656IMG_3655IMG_3654IMG_3659

Snow covered wonder… I am reminiscing how I felt when the chilly winter air passed through my coat and I was holding his hand trying not to slip on the hardened snow, but jump off a pile of fresh snow. I could still remember the smell of snow every time I open the door of my freezer. It brings the shiver back. It makes me miss him more. I close the door and the video and the pictures and bring back myself to today. Today where I am here..smiling at the mirror to bring the bliss in our lives.. He will be with me soon..

IMG_3648IMG_3650

and then our stay at the Fremont street.. Covering three different hotels in around 6 days of stay – at the strip, at the Fremont street,  near the boulder city highway and seriously nothing is bad here at Vegas. Or may be it was the high in the air.. You don’t sleep here and eating is one thing that keeps us awake 😀 Being a kind of veggie loving person, S loves to try new vegan or vegetarian places. This place is awesome. I don’t think there are any branches for the restaurant, so if you plan to visit Vegas, I definitely recommend you to try this one. VegeNation . Its a Vegan place and they also have an Entree named Ellen DeGeneres 🙂 .. Love her.  This temple of food took care of our hunger for almost two days and then we decided to try other places as well 😉 Not fair for other eateries. Vegenation burger and Jamaican Hibiscus Punch – Yum…

My today’s bliss is in chill of the snow and smell of the food.. 🙂

Hope you enjoy the post..

Love

I EXPRESS – BEAUTY BOX 2

IMG_3666

Helloooo there!! I hope everyone is doing great and shining…and yupp I am still alive and trying to keep up with my short term goals of keeping up with my backlogs on the post front hihi. This is an ‘I express’ post on the products I received in April Birchbox which had more skin care items than makeup which I looooooooooved.. Okay, so let’s quickly get to it..

IMG_3668

amika Un. Done Texture Spray. PROS – Amazing scent. It smells like an amazing springy perfume with flowery touch and its like spa on head. Definitely, does not stiffen my hair like any other hair spray and keeps it normal and natural. I adore the packaging. CONS – It does not give that insane volume to my hair as it claims. Also, I did not experience the ‘loads of shine’. There is nothing known as effortless to this one as a little of it would not work and a lot of it would leave your hair really unhealthy the next day. It doesn’t work for my hair texture which is thick and short. It’s a 1/5 for me.

IMG_3674

Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm. It’s a bonus product. Yay! All PROS, No CONS. I love it. I love it. I love it. This works exactly as it states. It gives a very natural look with the right amount of tint. Nothing dramatic. I am all Ga Ga about it. The color is a sweet violet which I had never tried in any lip balms and I am glad I got to try it. Beautiful color, lil tinted, natural look, moisturizes well, don’t have to re-apply every 10 minutes. This is all the qualities I need in a lip balm. I give it 5/5.

IMG_3671

TOCCA Crema da Mano -Giulietta. I like this brand’s name ‘TOCCA’. I am a big fan of hand creams and this sample is the right size to keep in my bag for daily outings 🙂 It does it’s job well. Keeps my hand smooth and moisturized. There is nothing wrong with it but still it does not have that waaaaow factor for me to order the full size. For me, this product is a 3/5.

IMG_3673

VASANTI BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator. PROS – The sample size is good enough to last a month since I do not exfoliate daily. Smells good and that’s it. CONS – I consider my skin to be sensitive to chemicals but not baby soft. The exfoliating agents i.e. those small beads that scrubs the skin were so hard on my skin that it actually felt like massaging my face with coarse sand. After effect was also not that great for me. It didn’t clean my face and I could still feel the oil on my skin intact. I had to wash my face again with my daily face wash. So in conclusion, it didn’t work on my skin but might work for others. For me, it’s a 1/5. I am scared to use it again 😀

IMG_3672

W3LL PEOPLE Expressionist Mascara. I am a big time Mascara girl. I love eye makeup and the best part of it for me is the lashes. Even on those no makeup days, I definitely do my lashes. That’s my unstoppable feeling for this makeup item and now moving on to the ‘I express’ of this product 😉 PROS – Best part is that its no chemicals or dyes so here is a big YAY. It gives a very natural look to the eyes. It’s wand’s design helps to easily separate the lashes without any stickiness around. Final look is very clean. It is very easy to apply, no clumps and very very easy to remove. CONS – Only drawback with this mascara is that you cannot go very dramatic with it. Even with two coats of the formula, you will still get very naturally looking eyes. So, with it in your mascara drawer, you will definitely need a dramatic mascara for those crazy night outs :D.. I would give this a 4/5.

Friends!!

summer-779385_1280

Hello guys… Hope you all are doing great! I am here today to talk about a person who is undoubtedly one of the most important one in everyone’s life “FRIEND”… I am so thankful to God for bringing me close to all these people I call “Friends’ who are the gem of my life. I love you all…

Who is a friend? A person who believes in you, in all your nonsense,  in all your breakouts, in all the stupid stuff you do.. Who is there for you in all the lows and highs.. Who understands you even when you behave like the biggest idiot on earth.. Who encourages you that you are the best and loves you even though you are at your worst… Who lies to you to make you feel better, who stands by you when whole world is against you, who knows that you need them the most at that very moment. They make you feel precious and the most important person when no one understands..and I am so glad to be surrounded by so many special people like these.. They also shout and scold you when you are drifting away from the reality, they guide you, they set you straight. They are your life and when you know that you can be yourself around them then you know you have a best friend…

Cherish the ones you have and be kind…

See you soon with some beauty tags and story times!

Love

Sorry!! I have been MIA..

FullSizeRender_2

Hello.. All the wonderful people out there… Lovely ladies and Gentlemen… Greetings to all.. I am sorry for being MIA for so long. But I have an excuse and a very valid and interesting one indeed.. Well lets chuck the second adjective, he he , its not interesting 😉 So Yeah I was swamped with work and hell lot of work.. Have been working my butt off.. Late working hours.. But still I have been checking all the new posts from blog world religiously,, It’s difficult for me to keep my hands off your lovely posts.. Have been regular with reading and loving and appreciating all your work.. I just multitask my morning coffee time at desk with reading the colorful and very reviving art of words and pictures in the blogosphere.. 🙂

Aaaaa..let me be very honest with you folks.. There is one more reason for me to not posting anything for weeks now. If you have been following my world here, you might know about this novella ‘Forgotten Love’ I had promised to write, of which I did post two chapters – 1 and 2 . I have my entire plot ready with a beautiful (aaaa tragic, well lets leave it a secret) ending all cooked up in my head, but I cannot get past this third chapter. I want to get my facts and research clear before I proceed further so I do not look like a fool 😉 .. So yupp, I am still working on it and cannot get past it to other posts…

Other then just working, researching and yet again finishing the entire series of How I Met Your Mother, I have been shopping a lot which does include some pretty cute trinkets (a post coming soon on those) …. I did stitch three dresses or you may say transformed old clothes to new wearable stuff.. I will be posting some pictures of those soon.. Also, I did cook a lot..all Indian food..

I have been crazily listening to Adam Levine’s Locked away. I mean seriously, it’s on repeat on my laptop while I am hitting keys trying to wind up that pile of work… Its awesome.. would you still love me the same????

Oh I almost forgot to tell I received my beauty boxes from Birchbox and there will be combined post of April and May boxes.. I received some amazing products and I am so excited to express my experience with them..

And here is some pictures of my recent visit to the back alley of Potbelly near my office.. Ooo, we did have lunch at Potbelly.. I loooooove the sandwiches there and the all american air.. It’s so delish!

FullSizeRender_3FullSizeRender

That’s all the face I can make while posing 😀 .. So I am wearing a black and while stripe top from United Colors of Benetton, one of my favorite brands. This is a super comfy top for those summer warm days when you don’t wanna care so much about your clothes whole day long and just let it go. Very soft and goes stunningly with black pants from Levi’s. These pair of pants I have picked from Kohl’s last year and they are still going great. Just love them and they go with looooot of my tops.  Finally carrying a silver wallet from Kenneth Cole and Pink flower printed flats from H & M.. Hope you liked the Friday casual look. I just could not stop myself from getting this pictures clicked once I found this beautiful alley with such beautiful artwork..

So this is the snippet of last few weeks and I will be back ASAP 🙂

See you soon lovelies.. Take care..

Love
