HOW MY STYLE CHANGED POST BABY.

25 May 2017









Long time no post. I shot a whole bunch of photos the other day but I didn't like how they turned out.

As I was editing these photos,  I remembered how hard it was to style my post baby body just after giving birth. I had new set of boobs, hips & a muffin top. The first few months I was always in tights, tshirts & sweatpants. Then I gradually moved to jeggings & I'm now in love with mommy jeans, perfect for hiding  my muffin top. I also learnt a plunging neckline / v neck will give the illusion of smaller boobs.

On  to the outfit... I love how a simple detail can add a statement to your outfit & these bell sleeves did that. I paired my top with mommy jeans, they are high waisted  just perfect to snatch  hide my muffin top & give me extra length.

How has your style changed over the years?

RUFFLE HEM

24 April 2017






I love cropped pants but at times styling them can be a challenge. This pair was easy to style cause of the ruffle hem. It's a fun & feminine pair that you can style with almost any pair of shoes. I paired my pants with off-the-shoulder top (ruffles on the top & ruffles on the bottom lol) & block heels. I was going for a monochromatic look with different shades of the same colour.

I love ruffle details  & I'm so happy they are everywhere right now...on blouses, denim,skirt, dresses etc & you can even make a statement with already what you have like this diy here. What is your favourite way to wear/ style ruffle pieces?

Lovely week ahead.

HOW TO MAKE BHAJIA

10 April 2017













Today on the blog I'll be sharing my favourite way of cooking my potatoes.

You'll need....

1 cup gram flour.
2 big potatoes or several small ones.
1 teaspoon of ginger powder/shredded
A handful of cilantro
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of cumin seeds
Pinch of baking soda.
Oil to fry

Boil your potatoes & mash them.
In a bowl mix all the ingredients into a thick batter but not runny.
Put your pan on a medium heat stove & add your oil.
Check if oil is ready for frying by placing a small piece of batter & if it sizzles then it's ready.
Fry the remaining batter for 5-6 minutes or until brown.
Serve hot.




FLOWER POWER

3 April 2017








When in doubt style basics then punch it up with flowers, in this case a floral jacket. Do you at times look at the clothes you own & think how can I restyle these pieces? I think the best way to do that is style basics then add a statement piece. I did this by styling a wrap around blouse with denim(you can check how I frayed the hem here ) & a floral jacket. This is a bit casual but for a formal look you can sub the jeans with a wide leg pants, cullotes or just any pants you own.

Oh my daughter wanted to be on the blog so please enjoy the three photos of my little love trying take self portraits lol. Awesome week ahead.
