I recently made a trip to Bombay or Mumbai as it’s now called, in India to visit some of my extended family who I have not seen since I got married, so it was about time!
I didn’t do as much shopping as I wanted to, but enough to keep me satisfied. I bought a Salwar Kameez (A traditional Indian dress and pants), a Kurta (An Indian cotton top), a sari, 3 pairs of flats and some jewellery all from the stalls on the street and all under $100! How come? I got to bargain like crazy which was a lot of fun to do, and I got to use my broken Hindi which needs some serious improvement. Time to get out the Bollywood movies lol
A traditional Indian outfit
I love the detail and work on this!
Since fall is here, I thought it would be nice to do a fall outfit of the day with the hubby. Now that the weather is more confused than usual (cold in the morning, hot in the afternoon, and then cold in the evening again) it’s always best to layer up.
- Ralph Lauren suit jacket
- H&M white shirt
- American Eagle jeans
- DKNY shoes
- Pimkie leather jacket
- Calvin Klein white shirt
- Forever 21 skinny grey jeans
- Forever 21 Thigh high boots
- Aldo clutch
The one thing I love about Georgia is that they have a perfect fall season. Its chilly but not freezing cold that you have to bundle up! Nor does it rain as much which I find odd as it rained more in the summer than it does now. Anyway, it works for me as I’m able to wear all my boots and jackets which I hardly wore back home in Dubai due to the hot and humid weather.
If there is one thing I love to do, it has to be dressing up! I love getting ready, I love doing my make-up and I absolutely LOVE wearing the highest pair of heels I own. (I’m short, so I need that extra inch)
My sisters and I recently attended a party in Dubai, UAE and had to get all dressed up for it. I love getting ready with them as there is always so much chaos when we do. The typical scenario would be make-up, clothes, jewellery and shoes all over the room like a tornado hit it, which I would say is considered normal! Not thought the same however by husband, father, or any male figure!
The 3 of us kept our make-up quite similar even though our outfits were different in color. For the eyes we just went with a sparkly white eyeshadow, and defined it further with black liquid liner. We also put on some pink blush to add color to our cheeks and finished off with a bright pink lipstick followed by a pink lip gloss.
