Happy Diwali 2016! feat. a hand embroidered outfit by Mum

Diwali 2016 look

Hey guys!
How are you??? You wouldn't guess this from reading but I'm actually fricckin excited!! Its DIWALI tomorrow... My favorite Indian festival and generally my favorite time of the year.
Its spring here in NZ, there's seeds germinating in my garden, there's more light in the day, there's sweets everywhere, the festive season has kicked off and there's an idiotic smile on my face.

DIY diyas clay lamps for Diwali

I missed out on Auckland Diwali Festival 2 weekends ago due to my impromptu trip to India but I'm glad I caught up on some other events planned around the city this last week (all the goss on my Insta Story). There's no certainty if I'll ever be able to attend Diwali in India (I was pretty close this time..just 8 days away!) but in all honesty I've fallen in love with Diwali here in New Zealand. I do miss home but this is my second home so it's not that bad you know....
Moreover, I got homemade sweets from India so technically there's some taste of home this year.

MAC Liptensity Collection Review

Hey guys!! Sorry I was MIA since last 2 weeks. Guess what! I was on a wee break in India for my best friends wedding (Of corse you know all about it, right down to what I ate, from my Insta Story!). It was a super short whirlwind trip. I tried to take some decent outfit photos too (though I didn't take my DSLR with me!). Lets do another wedding series..Who's ready? I'm really excited after all the love I received from you guys on the my Sisters Wedding series.

MAC Liptensity Lipsticks

Today, lets just talk about this new collection from MAC which came out Oct 10th, 2016 in NZ.  I know I'm late. Blame the travel!! But the collection is still available and its a beautiful one so lets dig into it.Its the MAC Liptensity Collection! Very aptly named as these lipsticks are pretty intense.


Nothing makes me more happy than a lipstick so when I heard of MAC releasing a collection of solely lipsticks..you could sense my excitement. MAC teamed up with the reknowned color expert Maureen Seaberg. She is pretty amazing in the sense that she has tetrachromatic vision, a rare genetic trait that  lets her see a million more colors than us normal beings. She can tell apart two shades that would look identical to you and me. How cool is that?

My sisters Wedding Shenangians- Part 5- Reception Night


Apologies if you were waiting on this last post of the series over the weekend. I usually refrain from posting on the weekends because a.) I'm busy b.) I'm sure many of you are out & about too. It takes a lot of hard work before I hit Publish on a post so its kinda a waste if my readers miss it.

All that aside, here's the last and final post from my sisters wedding- The Reception Night! It's a gathering hosted by the groom's side to welcome the new daughter-in-law into their family. The event is fully organised by the boy's side and we had nothing to do except Dress Up, Show Up & have a good time!
It almost sounds too relaxing but the organisation freak in me will always take upon a job to do!


It's a night event and since I wore Indian Outfits to all the functions (Prayer Ceremony, Henna, Sangeet Night & the Wedding), I wanted to wear something western with an Indian aspect to it. Enters the classic black gown but with a twist!
