How I Get Ready For A South Asian Wedding Event

giphy8

I open my closet and start pulling out outfits that make me look like Priyanka Chopra in my head…cuz you know ain’t nobody like a desi girl.

giphy

It’s time to game plan. There are different types of outfits one can wear when going to a South Asian wedding event. If I know the bride/groom personally, then you best know that I’ll be rocking that lehenga or glitzy saree. If I’m a plus one for my parents (yes, it’s a thing), then I’ll taper the look down in a kameez or a glam saree.

Once I’ve chosen at least 3 outfits as options, I’m going to start taking MySpace-esque mirror selfies to see which one looks the bombdotcom…because….hello Instagram?

giphy1

…and I’ll send them to my most trusted squad members….because the squad has to approve right? Also, they’ll most likely tell me if I’m too scandalous #noscandalizedauntieszone

giphy10

Outfit done. Time to get my makeup on. Popular to contrary belief, I rarely know what makeup look I’m going for. Almost always, I’ll pick the lipstick I want to use and base my whole look around that.

Daaang, makeup did. Now to get my hair did…cue the Beyonce playlist now…#feelingmyself.

giphy3

Hair did. Face beat. Now for the bling. For me, it’s all about the glitz…because I’m that extra.

giphy4

Time to Instagram…it’s about that #OOTD life.

And now I’m ready to get into the car and head to the event! Peace out! See you in the next post! x

Best Dressed At The Golden Globes 2017

Hello Dolls! It’s Monday and you know what that means? I have one of those motivational posts for you…wait…no I don’t. Instead what I do have is my favourite looks from the Golden Globes Award last night (I think it’s better and a kind of motivational post…don’t ya think?). If you’re still looking for some motivation, then you can check out my previous posts here. Other than that, can we please discuss let me tell you how every single person’s outfit was spectacular last night. I, literally, had the hardest time coming up with 10 of my favourite looks. With that being said, here are MY favourite looks from last night. Thanks to E!Online, UsWeekly and Hollywood life for the pics 🙂:

Blake Lively 

blake-lively-golden-globes-2017

…Because she’s totally worth being on the top of my best dressed list. Seriously, didn’t she like just have a baby? Love the emerald cuff with the all black gown. The hint of metallic sparkle is SO hot just like her hubby.

Emma Stone

74th Annual Golden Globe Awards, Arrivals, Los Angeles, USA - 08 Jan 2017

Her dress has stars! Like come on. That alone makes this dress stunning. I can’t find a single thing wrong with this outfit. It’s making me just LaLa all around my room (yeah, I know that’s a terrible)…but how gorgeous does she look. This is an Easy A+ outfit (kay I’ll stop).

Brie Larson

74th Annual Golden Globe Awards, Arrivals, Los Angeles, USA - 08 Jan 2017

Brie looks incredible in this gorgeous red dress. I love the embellishments woven in. My favourite part of this look is the fact that she is rocking a matching lip and breaking all kinds of beauty rules in doing so…and I love it.

Kristen Bell

fd50b7db8146c4d4a1822222e8064cc4

Kristen Bell looks absolutely gorgeous in this sparkly gown. It’s making me want to stare at my non sparkly outfits and sing let it go over and over again (lol). But seriously, the plunging neckline looks classy, not trashy, and that’s why this outfit works!

Busy Phillipps

sub-buzz-31095-1483921224-10

OMG REMEMBER HER FROM DAWSON’S CREEK? How GORG is this dress? I actually want to jump into this picture and steal this so that I can wear it everyday! I love the minimalistic embroidered flowers. AND that purse…purrrfecto!

Michelle Williams

sub-buzz-6224-1483920306-5

On keeping with the Dawson’s Creek theme, Michelle Williams hit it out of the park with this look. She basically has hit all the trendy looks in one outfit and I can’t be any happier. The minimal makeup and the sleeked pixie hair is the perfect bow to her outfit!

Priyanka Chopra

sub-buzz-3526-1483919723-7

Let us take a moment and appreciate the fact that Priyanka Chopra is a fashion icon in the making. Everything about this outfit is perfect from the hair to the makeup and she’s making EVERY single brown girl scream, ain’t nobody like a desi girl 😛

Janelle Monae

sub-buzz-1660-1483921164-5

OMG. OMG. OMG. I love this. Janelle just proves more and more why pushing the boundaries in fashion will work out and why taking risks are always worth it. I love everything here from the polka dots to the organza to the sequins. All kinds of glam.

Natalie Portman

sub-buzz-32434-1483919864-6

Jackie O would be SO proud of this elegant look Natalie is sporting. The colour, the makeup, the hair and everything else is just spectacularly chic. Also, only Natalie Portman can make maternity dressing looks this perfectly glamourous.

Lily Collins

sub-buzz-32593-1483919174-1

This is actually what a Disney Princess looks like in real life. No joke. The blush gown embellished with printed flowers is the prettiest thing I’ve seen on a red carpet. I love that she kept the princess vibe with her hair and makeup. All kinds of gorgeous right here.

 

See ya in the next post!

kisses,

Fashion Diaries: 10 times Priyanka Chopra Slayed Her Style Game

This Bollywood turned North American TV actress has been killing her style game ever since she stepped foot into the glamour world of acting. Lately, Priyanka Chopra has elevated her style game even more now that she’s in Hollywood. I love that she takes risks yet stays true to her own personal unique style. She can practically rock any outfit effortlessly with confidence. How do I know this? I’ve met her. Ha. (Okay that’s my one second show off moment, which I shall stop). But seriously, this girl brings it no matter what she’s doing and no matter where she is. I love that her hair and makeup are also always on point! Here are 10 of my favourite looks PC has rocked:

032e2e9537ecd9d82d18e168d6d9c734This is how you rock a metallic shoe. Pair it with a sultry dress!

72961cee02fc339f751e169b63e0949bWant to know how to make a plain white dress stylish? Let PC help you out (that clutch though).

70f71790051179060c9644d9df083a74I’m pretty sure if I looked like this or owned this lehenga, I’d wear it 24/7. No lie.

1f70db5d7bd97b937a28f41dcf496f80Dear Priyanka, how do you always look so effortless chic?

1ef4ab991e2f50d0fc88519c6a05e42bOh. My. PC. * insert heart eyed emoji *

6228d24846a4a34ed0a1c74db04cb096This whole outfit is goals.

e73267fdb666d7f912d62c3b77113f0dCamo pants and Graphic T never looked so good * goes to own closet to find *

fd7ec351034a590b1c785f23bc0b9d09All I have to say is traditional sarees are REALLY hard to pull off…but she makes it look easy.

f8642fa7d96d195ad692b2749b5a1ce1I’m basically going to wear this outfit every time I go out. Why? Cuz PC did.

d69f36e2531889030b86515c676ee564Those shoes though!!!! #edgychic

Makeup Diaries: Bollywood’s Best Makeup Moments

Whenever I am in doubt of what makeup look to create for a night out, I always rely on celebrities to give me some makeup inspiration. Most of the time, I can get away with recreating each look (although, I like to add my unique twist to some of them). Since this blog has gone Bollywood for the week, I thought why not share with you some of my favourite makeup moments courtesy of Bollywood’s leading ladies! Below you will find a few of my favourite looks that some of my favourite Bollywood actresses have rocked:

9dfe7c3c7678f78cec4751336158004bAishwarya Rai Bachchan

This is one of my favourite makeup looks ever! Aishwarya’s makeup here is completely flawless! In order to pull off a bold red lip, you have to be able to balance out the makeup everywhere else by keeping things neutral. Ash’s defined neutral eyes and bold brows aren’t overdone. A flawless contoured face is perfect with a red lip. This ex-Miss World’s makeup looks stunning!

4e9efe2d8dce44e2f8a99520928e3f47Priyanka Chopra

PC’s makeup is always impeccable. In fact, I’ve met her before and even in person her makeup is beautiful and never overdone. This is one of my favourite looks to rock. The blush toned lips are gorgeous and go with pretty much any sort of eye makeup. Priyanka keeps her eyes dark and defined. Priyanka’s overall makeup looks is gorgeous, as always!

1a4cd03fcd8be356e9e2829aa4e151bbAnushka Sharma

This is one of the prettiest ways of wearing barely there makeup. It’s hard for a lot of people to pull of this style of makeup off but Anushka does it perfectly well! Anushka pairs a light pink lip with peach blush on her cheeks. This is the best way to balance a natural makeup look. She lightly defines her eyes, fills in her eyebrows and wear a bit of mascara for this polished look.

Sonam kapoor at Awards function (1)Sonam Kapoor

This glamourista always hits it out of the park with her makeup. I’ve rarely ever not liked anything she dons! Her look here is perfect! The bright pink bold lip is super trendy! She pairs this with a shimmery/satiny eye makeup look, which isn’t overbearing at all. Filled in eyebrows and a light dusting of blush on the apples of the cheeks finish this pretty look!

be328c10-cde7-11e3-a398-ed97a52efae5_YOG_2412Deepika Padukone

Deepika always plays it safe with her makeup but her vampy look here was a risk well taken. This trendy look is really hard to pull off because the look can come off too strong for some. Deepika’s ox blood coloured lips are paired with lightly defined eyes, which is how you want to wear this trend. Filled in eyebrows and flawless skin finish this gorgeous look!

adf505902c566fb990ac4f5a985ae8c9Sonakshi Sinha

Everyone loves a good smoky eye and Sonakshi is killing this look! This classic smoky eye she’s rocking has a hint of shimmer/glitter making this perfect for a night out and to make her eye colour pop out! Nude lips, sculpted cheeks and flawless skin is the right way to finish this amazing look! (Psst, check back on this blog later to see how you can recreate this look Sonakshi is rocking!)

Happy Thursday Dolls! x

This is a perfect way to directly connect with their fans. Below you will find my favourite Bollywood celebrity accounts. I’ve also linked my favourite pictures from their accounts. 🙂

  4. Varun Dhawan (Witty & Cute)
  5. Sonam Kapoor (Ultimate Fashionista)
  6. Arjun Kapoor (Adorable. That is all)
  7. Sonakshi Sinha (Classy, sassy, & selfie lover)
