The Versatile Blogger Award !!

Wuhhoooo...
Am back to my hostel.. And guess what!! I got a surprise - an Apple Ipod Shuffle - my First Apple productt... Though I hadddddd beeen eating my dad'ssssssss head to get me an Iphone soon.. But hey Ipod is good to start with, isn't it??
Anyways I got this Ipod as a gift courtesy Lakme India, coz I had won their Facebook contest.
This month is really really luckyy for me.. *** TOUCHWOOD***


Btw did I tell ya? Back home I did lotsaa shopping ( actually a lil bit ) which I would share with you all in the next post, also that I met with a small accident because of which my right foot is now bandaged and is all swollen :( :( :(


But the Ipod and Versatile Blogger Award made me forget it all !!!!!!




Anyways moving on to the award. Jiya from Shopping, Style & Us was kind & sweet enough to give me this award and am sooo delighted to get it from 1 of my favorite bloggers !! She is 1 of the bloggers I love because she not only writes about the latest trends & updates in Fashion, but also keeps a check on other bloggers' posts & makes sure to visit back & leave a feedback whereas most of the CELEBRITY bloggers don't care about the same.
Anyways this post is not a Complaint Box to them , so let's better leave that topic.


Rules of the Award
  1. Thank the person who nominated you and give them a shout out on your blog with a link to their blog.
  2. Share 7 random facts about yourself.
  3. Send on the award to 15 bloggers whose blogs that you appreciate and then let them know that they have won the award.

7 RANDOM FACTS

1. This month has been the luckiest for me, winning a Blog award from Blogadda.com, meeting Sonam Kapoor and finally winning an Apple Ipod.. So I am really loving it.. Winning such small contests makes you feel soooo happy, Isn't it???

2. I am a lil crazy about cute little things like pens, hairclips, keyrings etc. and if they are pink, I can't resist myself from buying them.

3. I can't resist shopping- and I mean it- I CANT RESIST SHOPPING. Its like everytime I go out to some mall or market, I never tend to come back empty handed. I am such an impulsive shopper.

4. I cry a lottt... If I fight with a friend, lose my stuff, am tensed over something or have an argument with my brothers; I just start crying like kids. Though I am trying to improve this habit. 

5. I am a very organized person, manage my wardrobe & room well and also maintain a diary of my daily expenses.

6. I like wearing comfy yet trendy clothes, am lil poor in Mix & Match but I am learning from some fellow Fashion bloggers.

7. I love reading romantic novels & watching Rom-Coms.. Ohhh I am such a romantic at heart..( though ironically am still SINGLE :D )

Now passing on the award to 15 fellow bloggers , well I don't know if I'll be able to give it to 15  bloggers or not but I'll pass it on to my personal Favorite bloggers whom I really appreciate & love their blogging style. Here they are  in a random order-

If I have missed some of the names, I mean no offence to them or its not that I dont like reading their blogs, its just that I like these blogs better and can personally relate to them !! : )

I also would like to thank all my followers and readers for their continuous support & appreciation for my blog. I promise to keep writing more & better.

For now, I wish you all a very Happy New Year.. MAy god bless ya all..
Take care.

Loads of love & hugs

Head Over Heels- Everything you should know about types of heels !!

Hey everyone !!
Last week I was looking online for some shoes when I thought about different heels I own- and well I proudly own some stilettos, pumps, high heels etc. But then I wondered do we all really know about different types of heels and their distinction?

Then I just searched a lott about them and decided to jot down this post.
So without blabbering much, here it goes-
First of all the definition of HEELS as in Wikipedia- High-heeled footwear (often abbreviated as high heels or simply heels) is footwear that raises the heel of the wearer's foot significantly higher than the toes.
So different types of heels are- 

  • Stilettostiletto heel is a long, thin, high heel found on some boots and shoes. It is named after the stiletto daggerStilettos give the optical illusion of a longer, slimmer leg, a smaller foot, and a greater overall height. They also alter the wearer's posture and gait, flexing the calf muscles, and making the bust and buttocks more prominent. ( ahhaa.. that's why they call them the SEXIEST of all heels).
  • Wedge heels - A type of shoe, with a round toe and thicker platform sole in the front that narrows towards the back. Wedges have no actual "heel". They look cool if you want to look more "mainstream" but do not actually want to buy spike heels.
  • Cone heels- A heel that is wide at the top and narrow at the bottom.
  • Kitten heels - A kitten heel is a stiletto heel of 5 centimeters or less in height; some are as low as 3 centimeters. This is an anomaly because a shoe or pump with regular wide heels of 3.5 centimeters high would normally be considered a flat shoes.
  • Cuban heels- A broad heel of moderate height with a slightly tapered back and straight front, used in shoes and some boots.
  • Spool Heels- A spool heel is a heel that is wide at the top and bottom and narrower in the middle. Spool heels were first popular in Europe during the Early Georgian era (1715-1750).
  • Platform heels- With a high heel at the rear, and a flat, uplifted support in the front part of the sole, platform enable you to maintain balance easily. Someone said that platform sexy high heels is a cheaters way to have very high heels and this is not difficult, because a 6" heel with a 3" platform feels the same as wearing a 3" heel. 
  • PumpsHigh heels pumps are a closed-toe shoe that covers the toes with a high heel at the rear. The shoe uppers on the sides of pumps extend around the back of the foot to cover the sides and heel of the foot. But there are also open toed pumps which have the end of the toe box cut out so the toes show.

So these were all the heels I could collect info about through Internet and my own knowledge. If you know about some other types of heels, please share below in the comments sections.
And well the next time when you go out looking for a perfect pair of heels, do read this section to get an info about all of them and to know which one would suit you best.

Happy Shopping !!
Take care.. God bless.

Hola a todos !!

Winter has started taking its proper shape slowly & steadily in this part of NCR now. Sitting in my room right now, am feeling very nostalgic and bored of the routine here.
I just wish to get placed ASAP now, the placement process has little slowed down in my college coz of exams, so we are expecting companies to come for our course in January.. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Well I haven't been out anywhere recently, and well in the college I don't feel like getting dressed up soo its just the usuals Kurtas or Western formals. So I thought of sharing this Outfit I had once worn to my Malaysia trip.

It was a hot day out for the City Tour of Bangkok, so I preferred wearing my favorite Polka Dot top from Vero Moda ( earlier featured HERE ), pairing up with GAP skirt (earlier featured here).
I couldn't take many pictures of this outfit, so please manage with these few pictures for now. :(




Top- Vero Moda
Skirt- GAP
Bag- Forever New
Shoes- Red Tape
Watch- PlayBoy

I would be putting up more posts about my recent shopping hauls from Sarojini Nagar and few from some other stores soon. 
Right now am just in a mood to go home ASAP so that I could cherish GHAR ka KHAANA ( Home-made food ) and snuggle in my cozy blanket eating our famous Punjabi Food- Sarso ka Saag & Makki Ki Roti !!! 
ahhh I miss homeeee... :((

Anyways catch ya all soon with an interesting post and better pictures soon.
Take care. God bless ya all.

My 10 Favorite Beauty Products !!

Hey lovely readers & followers !!
Hope you are having a great weekend.. I was thinking about what to write as my 1st post in December ( The earlier one was just a Thank you post)..
So I thought of sharing my favorite beauty products as its the year end, and we all must have tried new products throughout the year and would have stuck upon some favorite ones. I don't use makeup much, but yes there are few of the products which I use regularly and always keep them handy.

So without blabbering much, here the list goes-

1. Lakme Lip Love Hottie


My love for this lip gloss is justttt unmatched. I had lost this gloss within days of purchasing it, although I had many other glosses in my kitty but I was soo much in love with it that I had to rush to repurchase it. I still remember the havoc I created and tears I shed when I found out that I had lost my precious lip gloss ( yes this is true, even my friends thought I had gone mad :D ).
The gloss is smooth and the shine & color is the just the right amount I like.

2. Vaseline Healthy White Body Lotion


I have been using this body lotion since 4years now and well am in love with it. It moisturizes my skin very well and keeps it smooth in winters too :)

Its 100 !! Thank you all : )

Hey lovely readers & Followers !!


Its December, and I started my blog in June.. 6 months have passed since I started my blog one lazy day, thinking about my passion for shopping, fashion, etc. I started my blog so that I could share my passion & love with like-minded people rather than being laughed about by some people around or being a called a shopping-freak. The same people now appreciate me for starting my blog and being so passionate about it.


When I first started my blog, I never thought I could even reach a figure of 50 because I never thought I had that style or X-factor in me. But well here it is, I woke up today and found that I have reached 100 followers.
It was the most happiest moment in my life this year, thinking I really have achieved something good outta my passion.
So here it is for you all, Thank you soooo much for reading my blog, giving suggestions and motivating me always.


Had it not been to some blogs I read way back in June during my summer internship, I would have never had started this blog at the 1st place. So I would love to say THANK YOU to all those bloggers too.
I appreciate all the fellow bloggers too for writing about their passion and not sitting back just because some people made fun of their blogs.
Here's to us and all.



And here's this cute virtual cake for you all to have a share of. I hope you keep appreciating my blog and coming back to give your suggestions.
Loads of Love
Nitika


PS- I know I know I had announced a giveaway on completing 100 followers. I am still collecting the gifts, you see its a lil tough when its a non-sponsored giveaway and you have to choose all the gifts yourself.
So It would be announced pretty soon : )
Its 100 !! Thank you all : )

Review / First Purchase from ASOS.com | ASOS Shopping Haul

Hey fellas !!
Hope you are all doing good..

Since past few days I got many queries about shopping with ASOS.com, an international shopping website offering free shipping internationally.

I had tried making a purchase with them in the past too, but my debit card would never work with their server. So finally, when my friend got her new debit card I tried making a purchase and Voilaa..It was successful. I placed an order for a very cute & smart pair of ASOS Pleat Front Twill Trousers and a Boudoir Lace Bandeau.

I received the pair of trousers today so thought of writing this post as a reply to all the queries and also sharing my experience with the website.

What I loved about the website-
  • Free Shipping- So far the only international website I have come across offering free shipping without any minimum purchase required. What more a shopaholic could ask for?
  • Great Variety- You can find products from different brands as well as from ASOS's home brands at the website. And they have soo much to offer.

OOTD- The Animal Print !!!

Hey lovely readers !!

This post was lying in my drafts since many days, but finally I got time to post it. I had my first job interview today, but I couldn't get through the 2nd round. Am a little disappointed, but then as it was my 1st interview only- I guess it was more of a learning experience. I would prepare more hard for the next interview ( which is tomorrow only. Wish Me Luck Plzzzzz :D )

Anyways I went partying with my friends last week and as it was decided just at the last moment , I really couldn't decide what to wear at such a short span of time. I picked out this skirt from GAP I have always loved and decided to pair up with a top from Globus gifted to me by my best friend. I didn't know it would work out sooo well.

Top- Globus
Skirt- GAP
Watch- Globus
Ring- Globus
Bag- Cherry Berry

Thrifted Shopping / Winter Haul !!

Hey everyone !!
Hope you all are doing great !! I am a lil occupied and tensed coz of the placement season going on. I haven't yet appeared for any interview because of some location constraints, so I have high hopes from a few companies lined up for us in coming weeks. I hope I get a placement soon :((


Last weekend I went thrift shopping for few casual wear I wanted for these winters. I prefer buying casual wear from Thrift shops / export surplus shops or markets like Sarojini Nagar because these are the clothes I wear a lott and thus tend to give them away every season or stop wearing them once I get bored. So its better to buy clothes at lower prices and then throw them away rather than buying Branded clothes at high prices and regret not wearing them often.
As winters are coming up and I still have college for 3-4months, I decided to buy clothes I would be wearing often at my hostel / daytime. So this is all what I bought.
I bought the Brown tunic and the blue top from a store in Ludhiana and the rest from different shops in Lal Quarter Market, Delhi.






Last three items are my favorite, the colors and the style are soo Chic. 


So what do you all prefer wearing- Branded or local-made??? Would love to know about your shopping preferences or favorite shopping places.


Well that's all for the day. I had went shopping with my friends today to Vasant Kunj, also coz I was dying to check out Forever21 and the best malls of Delhi- Emporio, Promenade & Ambience- But more on that later.

Have a great weekend.
Take care. Thanks for reading.

The stones hairband is my fav- I found it at such a low price- I am lovingg it to the core. And I guess I cant have too much of HEARTS  & BOWS accessories. I Have sooo many of them till now, but still what I find is them in cute colors ( mostly Pinks ). But we girls love them.. Don't we??

The High Heel Story Continuessss !!!

Hey everyone !!


So am back with my new post about the 2 gorgeous pairs of heels I bought few days agoo !! finally I got time to write and share about them!!
I got 1 of the pairs from an export house near Rajouri, Delhi and other from Fashion and You. Without any blabbering much, these are the pictures-


Miss Sixty


Fornarina

These are my 1st pair each of Miss Sixty and Fornarina shoes.
Miss Sixty is an Italian brand of women's clothing and shoes which opened in India in 2009.
Fornarina is also an Italian brand which was founded in 1947 and is a very famous shoe brand abroad, but I dont think it has yet opened in India.
Amongst the 2 pairs I love the Fornarina one more coz of its comfort and quality : )

At one point of time I had hated High heels and used to wonder that how come girls are able to wear, walk and even dance in these heels; But when I got my first pair I got hooked to them. They indeed look soo sexyy and elegant. You just have to grab the right pair which is more comfortable than sexy, coz at the end its all about your health.

I guess wedges and platform heels are best when it comes to high heels as they are more comfortable to walk in. ( Coming up next with a post on different types of heels : ) )

That's all for the day, I have 3-4 posts lined up in the drafts so in the coming days you all would be getting more of my posts. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing them. 
Thanks for reading.
Loads of love

OOTD- Rocking it with a LWD !!!

Hey lovely readers and friends !!
My Bday is over and well at a lil annoying note !! Coz I had kept my b'day celebrations on hold for a placement interview at my college- which never happened !! Because just 5 mins before the Aptitude Test we got to know that Non- engineers weren't eligible !! And so there went all my hopes to get placed with this company and also came out all the anger I had kept inside for ruining my b'day plans !!!
huhhh !!

One of my best friends is leaving for Pune this Friday, and I had thought of celebrating my b'day with her but had postponed it for this stupid interview. But well .. I cannot change it now. I am going over to her place tomorrow and we'll go out shopping one last time before she leaves !! I hope it would compensate a lil  : )

Back to the post- I found this very interesting video at Youtube showing 10 different ways to wear a Little White Dress !! Have a look  -



And well this is what I wore a week before Diwali when I went clubbing with my friend. The dress from FCUK is soo elegant and perfect fit, I love those ruffled sleeves. I added the black brooch which was a part of a necklace I had bought from WESTSIDE. And well adding my fav pair of stilettos from METRO did wonders to the whole look. Don't you think soo?? : )

Brooch- Westside 
Dress- FCUK
Shoes- Metro


So how did you like my look? I dont like playing much with accessories in summers as I sweat a lott so I just prefer wearing a watch and small earrings, But I do like wearing statement necklaces and bracelets in winters. And well the winters are here back again, so I need to take them out and start wearing them a lott.
I have got 2 new pairs of high heels, which am dying to share with you all - but more to them in the next post.

I need to go watch HIMYM noww.. Its fun watching Barney - Isn't it?? :D 
Hope you liked the post !! All kinda comments and suggestions welcome. Please share your views in the comments below !!

Loads of loveeee..
