Review - The Body Shop Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream

Hey lovely readers!
Few weeks back I had attended the launch of The Body Shop's new BB cream at their Connaught Place outlet in Delhi. And, finally after having used this cream daily for last 2 weeks, I am here with my review of the BB cream.

The Body Shop's new BB cream is a part of their famous Tea Tree range which is most suitable for oily or blemished skin. I have a combination skin which tends to have acne in the hotter months of the year therefore I was really excited to know that this BB is suitable for blemished skin as I am a fan of BB creams.

I have already used 3 products of the Tea Tree range - Toner, face wash and Tea Tree oil - which are a part of my daily skincare regime as well.

What the brand says about the BB cream - 
"Perfect your complexion and fight the look of blemishes with our Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream. This dual action cream gives you flawless coverage whilst tackling the appearance of blemishes. Formulated with purifying Community Fair Trade organic tea tree oil from Kenya. - Blemishes and imperfections are instantly covered - Lightweight formula gives shine-free complexion - 3 shades blend seamlessly into all skin tones for natural-looking coverage/"

Here's my experience with the cream -

  • I picked the 02 shade of the range as 01 was too light for my complexion. The cream comes in a standard tube packaging of the brand and contains 40ml of the cream.

OOTD - Matching It All | Curvy Style Guide

Hey lovely readers!
Hope you all are doing great and enjoy this week. Last Sunday I was invited over to attend the OLX Collectors Ride event held at Blue Frog, Delhi where the brand unveiled 'The Freedom Bike’, a 12-feet-long motorcycle art installation made entirely of vintage items.

This extraordinary piece of art, made entirely of collectible and vintage items, was unveiled by OLX in Delhi on Sunday, September 14th in the presence of leading motorcycle communities, artists, media, actors such as Rajiv Khandelwal and  Rohit Roy, and popular music band Indian Ocean, which also performed at the event.
As the event was organized outdoors (after-party was in the club) in the evening, I decided to wear my new Vero Moda jumpsuit in solid blue color which has a flattering silhouette.

This outfit is also the part of my Curvy Style Guide on how to wear a jumpsuit as many a times we get confused about which jumpsuit/romper to pick for our body shape. If you love the comfy feel of jumpsuits like me, you should go for a solid colored jumpsuit in sophisticated fabric or one with a light print so that it hides your problem areas. Also, you should ideally go for a jumpsuit which has a defined waist or a belt strategically placed for an hour glass effect.

I teamed up my jumpsuit with a stylish bird print and striped satchel bag in a matching color palette from The Purple Sack - an online brand which deals in trendy accessories like bags, belts, scarves and more. My Daniel Wellington watch with the Classic Oxford wristband looked like it was made to compliment this bag and the jumpsuit.

Have a look at how I styled my jumpsuit for the event -
Jumpsuit - Vero Moda
Blue Bird Bag - The Purple Sack
Wedges - Pavers England
Watch - Daniel Wellington
Earrings - NEW U

My Zotiqq Jewellery Box - Review

Hey everyone!
I am back with a review post for my lovely readers who love hoarding jewellery and accessories.
Lately I have  been investing in a lot of statement jewellery pieces because I have realized that while apparel trends change every now and then, jewellery is something that would somehow still remain in fashion and depends on personal style.

Also, when you don't like repeating your outfits, you can easily give yourself a unique look by teaming the same outfit with different jewellery pieces.
So, when I came across this new jewellery label in town - ZOTIQQ - which is run by a dear friend, I was tempted to try what they have in store.

While they have a lot of statement jewellery pieces listed on their website, what excited me the most was their monthly Subscription Box service in which you get 3-5 customized pieces delivered to your home in a collectible box each month.

The service is available in 3 variants -
  • Must have's Box
  • Glam Box
  • Fashionista Box
I chose to receive the Fashionista box which I will be sharing with you in this post -

OOTD - Watch It Out - Daniel Wellington Classic Bristol Lady

Hola chicas!
Hope you all are enjoying the change in the weather and the lovely feel of Fall finally setting in. Even I think it's time to re-arrange my wardrobe and make space for my autumn-winter clothing.
Last week I got my hands on my first Daniel Wellington watch - a Classic Bristol Lady - and I thought it was perfect to style for my first autumn outfit post with its laidback design.

As the weather has slowly turned cool, I decided to wear my new printed pencil skirt from Precious Melove with a bright pink top from US Polo. I accessorized the look with a blue statement neckpiece from Accessorize, a classy clutch bag from Accessorize and a pair of beige block heels from Forever 21.

And to give an elegant vibe to the look, I paired my DW which has a minimalistic dial and a perfectly dark brown band that added a touch of luxury to the otherwise fun and chic outfit.

Have a look at the pictures to see how I styled my beautiful timepiece :
Top : US Polo
Skirt : Precious Melove
Heels : Forever 21
Watch : Daniel Wellington
Clutch : Accessorize
Necklace : Accessorize
Bracelet : Zotiqq

OOTD - Dare to Wear Leggings - Curvy Style Guide

Hi lovely readers!
I am back with another Outfit Post as part of few outfits I have styled as per few requests I received from my curvy readers.
And the new outfit in the series covers the latest trend - Leggings - which have become a rage all over.

When I first saw these trendy pair of leggings at a ZARA outlet a few months I instantly liked them but didn't try them thinking I was too curvy for them.
My best friend who is skinny bought the pair and rocked it as well. And soon girls all around were flaunting this pair with cute crop tops, tucked-in shirts and halter necks. Many fakes also came up but well the ZARA leggings have a style and fit which is unique and classy.

And the last time I entered the store, I just couldn't resist buying the pair and decided I had to have this pair in my wardrobe. Once I bought the pair, my major concern was how to style this pair of leggings - being heavier at the torso, I can't wear it with a crop top like my skinny friends or wear it with a tucked-in top.
So, the pair kept lying in my wardrobe for a month or so, and then I bought this perfect asymmetrical neon top from Madame which I believed was a perfect match to the leggings.

Not only the top helps me cover my heavier side but also has a catchy design which instantly gives me a toned-down look. Do you agree?
I styled the outfit with my favorite aztec heels from Steve Madden and a handy Milanoo sling bag which can be carried in two different ways.
Top - Madame
Leggings - ZARA
Necklace - Forever 21
Heels - Steve Madden
Bag -
Watch - ALDO
