x Unicorn twist x

Hi you guys, how’s it going? Well, if you ask the same question to me I will say I’m feeling AWESOME. Firstly ’cause summer is over, secondly ’cause I have holidays going on. It’s study holidays but, who cares?

Anyway, I am mostly home and its been a long time since I posted a DIY, I thought I might just do something fun. My sister is really interested in painting and is good with colors and she suggested me that we do water color painting on a t-shirt. Yes, sounds funny but it was super fun doing it. All we needed was a plain white t-shirt, some water colors and paint brushes. Followed  are few pictures which guides you through the procedure if some of you didn’t get it.

. .

So all I did was take some water color in a paint brush and splatter it on the t-shirt and blend it with water and left it to dry for almost the whole day. Now this is not something you can wash and re-wear. I thought it would be fun doing this plus I like wearing colors! So if you have a never worn white t-shirt and some water colors at home now you know what to do. Following are some pictures of the look I created with this t-shirt. I also dutch braided my hair cause I think it just adds that whole hippy, unicorn, colorful, playful element to the look.

Wooplr x You

Hi guys! Can you believe summer is almost coming to an end and we will sooner or later get used to wearing sweaters and beanies maybe not for the coldness but at least for a fashion statement, right? haha. What I cannot believe is that I’m going into the final exams of another semester and it feels like I just wrote my previous sem’s exam a week back. So I don’t think none of us will ever get enough of these holidays.

I haven’t been very active in creating content and writing posts on the blog though it was my this new year’s resolution. I was so caught up with college and extra curriculars that I genuinely didn’t find time for this. If you ask me what I do in the little free time I get.. well I will say, I am on the internet, probably reading articles or drooling over all the huge brand’s newest collections. And amidst this reading and drooling over brands is when I came across this website ‘Wooplr’. It is a platform that lets you create your own store and add outfits from various brands, promote and earn money from your store. They take of the product delivery, the customer guarantee and the returns. I didn’t see a reason why I shouldn’t have been a part of it. And so I created an account and added a few collections.

I bought a top from this website and talking about the quality provided, it is absolutely top notch. My friend had ordered a hoodie from my store once and after a day or two she recieved a message saying the product order has been cancelled as it didn’t meet the customer quality requirements. So, if this is not ‘meeting customer requirements’   , I don’t know what is. Scroll down for more information on the working of the website and more looks I’ve created.

Check out the collection on wooplr by clicking here:      https://theftrouble.wooplr.com

Talking about the collection available on the website, it is amazing guys, amazing. They drop in new outfits and designs every hour on the website. They have trending categories, an option for you to post your own style and describe about it, tags starting from a beginners tag depending upon how much we earn, so many brands to choose from and an offer every now and then to get us motivated to shop. They provide cash on delivery services, debit and credit card purchases and let us relax back home while they take care of the delivery and returns. Also, they have contests happening very often which helps us earn more bonus, and helps us connect and promote among more people. Followed pictures is the look I created from another top picked up from my store. So what are you waiting for? check out the website, avail the offers and buy your heart out.              https://theftrouble.wooplr.com

My first trek ft. Nature walkers

Hello guys. First of all, Happy new year and hope you guys made some good resolutions this year and I have too, hoping to follow them and not get lazy again. One of my resolution is to make some time to create more content which I haven’t done in a long time. Of late I had been so busy and stressed with all my end-semester exams and my extra-curricular classes, I never got an ounce of time to create some content at all. I have so many things planned and so little time, well this is a student’s life, isn’t it? And in between all this busy schedules and the exciting things this new year has in bag for us, me and my friend decided to take some time off and get away for some adventure. I had come across this website called thrillophilia long back and I looked it up. The dates we wanted was not available as our college would start in no time and our parents suggested we go to someplace near since it was our first time. And a two day trek was the best option. We looked up treks within Karnataka and for our luck we got the date we wanted, we found the kodachadri trek package well suited, and yippee we booked! So we would start on the 26th of January and return on the 28th.

We were really excited, packed our bags and the day had arrived. We had pick up points at different locations in Bangalore and there were a total of 33 people on the journey including 3 guides. Started travelling at around 9 in the night we pit stopped for dinner and left to kodachari. The 3 guides who accompanied us were the most jovial people and kept us alive throughout the whole journey. We had a small ice breaker turn after turn on the way and we all finally slept awaiting for a long fun-filled trek the coming day.

We arrived the destination early in the morning, barely could open our eyes, freezing cold and got down the bus to a small confined very welcoming homestay where we would freshen up and spend the night too. The people running the homestay were localites who knew the place pretty darn well and sent in a local guide to join us. After a quick breakfast and another icebreaker round, we left, with bag packs, strangers, utmost excitement and a hell lot of energy! We walked through roads, dense forests, clumsy tracks and between the bushes with half our energy drained out, pit stopped at another beautiful shady place that served fulfilling buttermilk and refreshments. Take a glance at the pictures I managed to click while swarming in the forest and making amazing new friends.

On the motive to reach the peak by evening for a breath-taking sunset, we trekked through streams and stopped at a waterfall, so scenic. The water falls from a height of almost 200 ft, is what I remember. Everyone stepped into the water, trying to rejuvenate their teenage, was overwhelming!

Walking into the deeper depth of the green forest, stopping for more buttermilk and lemonades on the way, panting our way to make it to the top, we finally did it. Made it to the top only to realize we had another hill to win, another peak to be touched. We had our lunch mid-way at a government guest house, rested for about an hour and started off to conquer another hill. In between all the panting, trying to find network, none of us realized how close each of us became. We spoke about work, studies, Bangalore life, our hobbies and made it just in time to the peak, to witness the sunset and get back into our sweaters as the night was drawn on us.

Our return journeyfrom the peak guys, was a whole new experience. We couldn’t obviously trek back in the night and so we were filled into jeeps which accomodated 8 people maximum. A prolonged journey on extremely bumpy, barely even roads, trying to get a grip in all the tiredness, we reached back the homestay where dinner was served. I mentioned earlier about how our trek guides were jovial but forgot to mention, they never got tired! They grabbed everyone for some more entertainment, a night full of dumbcharades, singing and warming up ourselves from the cold night, we had reached the near end of our journey.

Night long singing and sleeping on the floors, trying to contain snores, we woke up to a completely foggy scenic forest view. A quick breakfast, saying good-bye to our homestay crew, a bundle of selfies and up for a small trek to the nagara fort, we left to travel back to our lives.

On the way back to Bangalore, still unusually packed with energy, everyone of us danced to probably a 100 songs, played the never ending dumbcharades, and felt like we knew each of us since we were kids. I cannot thank the guides and Nature walkers enough for letting my first trek experience be so memorable and entertaining. This getaway definitely helped me to truly relax and unwind. I hope you had a great time reading and looking at the pictures. And since this is my first travel post on the blog, I would love if you guys showed some love with comments and suggestions for more content! Thankyou, have an amazing week you all!

NYFW spring/summer’18 Street Style

This year’s Fashion week Street style showed to us minimalism is important but being comfortable in it is most important. It provided us a glimpse of an unsettling reality of a paradisiacal future, gender fluid silhouettes and how everyone can be themselves in anything they wear.

There were graphic prints, creation of their own version of an alternative universe, unexpected twists and constructions in fabrication, fusing modern ideas to the 90’s and the early 20’s, prominently pushing the boundaries of street style wear.

I could not, not pile up some pictures into a folder, of some of the best street style wear I thought, in this year’s New York Fashion Week/Spring Summer 2018/Street style wear and share it with ya’all.

 

And its a wrap! (2/2)

So, I mentioned ‘war of colors’ in the previous part and now I’m telling you that green is the color of the year, according to Pantone. And if you think you cannot carry this vivid color, no worries because there is a shade for everyone, no matter what skin tone. From mint to parrot green and forest green, adding this color  hue in your wardrobe will go a long way in making you look trendy.

Also, its all about how style and create looks with your dresses as effortlessly as a pair of jeans this season. Comfort is key.

    • This (2/2) post is about how I created a ‘off the casual’ look from a shirt.
    • Pick a shirt of your choice and wrap it around your waist so you have the buttons in the front.
    • Button up the shirt down your waist to how fit you want it to be.
    • Follow the same step (2) and step (3) and you have it!

  • Combine stripes of different colors and thickness for a quirky look. Go for vertical stripes to create the illusion of a taller silhouette. Use belts to add more definition to your entire look. Scroll down and let me know what you think of this DIY 🙂

Its a wrap! (1/2)

We are in an era where we are accepting and adoring the past. From the old 80’s statement sleeves, to chockers, high-waist bottoms, belle-bottom pants, and crop tops. We are totally in awe in this blast from the past era and in a mission to explore more.

So this post can be called a random fix, ’cause days  back, my mother was cleaning things out from my wardrobe and planning on giving them away. That is when I spotted this sailor striped full arm t-shirt which maybe I wore just once, since the day I bought it. And I thought, why not wear it as a skirt? because there is no way I would wear a full arm t-shirt out in this Bangalore weather. And hence I would like to share how I did it in a snap with you guys. The things you need? (1) A full arm t-shirt. And its a wrap. LOL.

  • Firstly, wear your t-shirt as a skirt from where the neck actually goes.
  • Stretch out the sleeves and wrap them around and there you have it. A ‘chic’ skirt.

I chose sailor strips and bold colors. Paired it with a printed t-shirt from Reliance Trends ’cause when there is a war of colors going on, be a part of it. I’ve got a part-2 of this post coming up for a formal look. So scroll down and let me know if you liked it 🙂

DIY t-shirt printing.

When it comes to shopping, I’m sure we girls don’t need a reason at all for anything it matters. But, how disappointing is it to walk into the store and not find the thing you went for in the first place? Or how disappointing is it to see that ‘out of stock’ gleaming at your face on online stores…?


I don’t know about you guys but that sure as hell has happened to me a lot of times! Yes, its sad. Its either my size is out of stock or when I decide ill go for a looser fit, the product itself is out of stock. And so i thought, what if i can print anything I want on my t-shirt all by myself? There are more than required tutorial videos on this but anyway I created my own DIY t-shirt printing formula cause #whocares! I’m excited to share it and so it goes..

Here’s all we need:

  1. Paper with any print you want, duh.
  2. sketches
  3. Iron..
  4. A t-shirt of your choice ofcourse! Yes, it’s just this simple.
  1. First of all, print the pattern or any catchy line you want on an A4 sheet and cut out the unwanted paper so the print fits in your t-shirt just right.
  2. Attach a freezing paper on the back of the A4 sheet where its ironed. The freezing paper helps to avoid paper bits stick to the material cause you may want just the pattern/wordings you see.
  3. Cleanly outline and color within the pattern/the wordings with sketches for a darker impression.
  4. Place the sheet as in the mirror image of the actual print. You can cut out the words seperately and place it as a mirror image to get the actual print.
  5. After placing them right, iron with great pressure for 2-4 mins with breaks.
  6. Make sure you let it dry out completely for about an hour or two before wearing it or washing it.
  7. And this is how it turned out ->

 

Loving this new doodle jeans from the very recent collection of Reliance trends, just could not wait to pair it with something and maybe it totally complements this t-shirt, any which way, who cares right? cause I PRINTED MY OWN T-SHIRT guys!

So now I do not have to frown over the favourite prints I want which is not available in my size or just out of stock like most of the times. Maybe its easier this way cause, who does not like to sit home, watch tv series while printing our own t-shirt!

Maybe it won’t work as effectively for everyone, but giving it a try is definitely no loss. Happy printing!

Cheats

Being a college student I know the struggle of pairing clothes everyday in different ways to look better each day and trying not to repeat lol. But I tried something very simple and not much effort at all to make your very cliche piece of clothing look different each time. A White freaking shirt! Don’t we all have to thank god for white? the color which dominates every person’s wardrobe which never gets boring and something which makes everyone look good in. Phew, savior. Basically this post is about white shirt in 4 ‘my’ ways.

Look 1: A very usual tucked in white shirt giving that semi-formal look. Can also tuck the front half of the shirt in and leave the other front half loose. Makes a statement anyways cause white! duh!

Look 2: Let loose and care free basic look.

Look 3: Just knot it up in the front and work it around.

Look 4: Another way round, heh. So here I’ve worn the same white shirt the other way round and the peter pan collar totally gives it a different look, so simple, no effort yet so different.

Shirt: Veromoda

Shoes: Adidas Originals
