{REVIEW} Enamor's Chinese Orchid Collection

" Lingerie is one of the most important pieces of your wardrobe. You can have a wardrobe malfunction if you don't choose the right thing to wear underneath! "
-Adriana Lima
Hiding in one corner of the house, in a small drawer, or a clothing line from where its not visible to anyone who sees the clothing line. Lingerie is the unsung hero of any dress that receives compliments. Its a woman's secret best friend ; Because if the lingerie wasn't right, the dress wouldn't have fit as gloriously as it did. We all have our favorite lingerie brands and we swear by them once we discover the dream-fit. Minimizers for the well-endowed, push-ups for those A-cup twins; we all have our firm choices. I am not sure about you, but I am not easily satisfied with fits each time I try a new brand.
Recently, Enamor commenced their AW'14 journey with the 2nd infusion of the Chinese Orchid collection. Oriental inspired, the collection boasts of colors such as blue, green and black in luxurious and comfortable polyamides' and lace. All 3 collections include nightwear too.
The AW'14 collection has three distinct infusions inspired by countries across the globe. Their 1st edition was called "Russian Firebird" . A heady mix of seductive reds & flashy oranges. The piece I picked was from Russian Firebird but was part of the Chinese orchid collection in turquoise. 
Here are TOP 5 reasons why YOU MUST lay your hands on these!
1.  Ultra Thin cups
If you are someone who is not fond of thick padding in wired bras, then this is your prayers answered!
The ultra thin cups of this "Glitzy" bra are as good as no padding and feel like a soft Caresse.  

 2. Great for long-wear
The back of the bra is a soft mesh, that almost feels like feather. So light & airy, you will not feel like taking it off even after a day-long wear. The matching bikini-style brief is also made up of the same mesh and absorbs sweat. No matter how much I hate to wear wired bras, they offer the best shape and support . To my pleasant surprise, this wired bra doesn't even make you feel like you are wearing one! The wire doesnt hurt!
Is your best friend getting married? Then you might want to recommend these to her for her wedding day, as it fits like a dream if you measure your right size. Full day wear is extremely comfortable & breathable!

3. Gorgeous detailing
Who doesn't love intricate details on their clothing. The AW"14 collection is crafted with so much love and care, it shows! The pretty lace in dual shades of pink & orange is the ideal color combination ; also in line with bridal wear these days!  The choice of fabrics & motifs make you feel like a princess.

 4. Afordable
These special designer lingerie from Enamor come at price points ranging from  Rs. 275- Rs. 1395
Style meets comfort in the most sensual form. Once you pick up Pretty lingerie  , only then you know how good it feels to wear them and at price points like these, you will never regret!
Have you tried this collection yet? If not, you might want know , they are selling out fast!
The next collection is called Moroccan dreams and I can't wait to try!
Till next time, CIAO!

Jewels in the dark

Jewels in the dark

Earrings,Hand-cuff- SILVETTE.COM
Black quilted purse- Accessorize via QUIKR

Why is there so much excitement around the unseen? Around 'What is unusual & undiscovered'?
When you visit Silvette, you will feel the same excitement . Statement pieces, hand-crafted in semi-precious stones, unique in their own way . These must belong to the perennially empty jewel-box!

Minimalism would be the usual guess,if you saw this black & white dress first,and a serious backdrop too.But I wanted to do the unusual .A formal dress,chunky semi-precious jewellery & a graffiti rich backdrop, all in this one look!

 I have seen Silvette.com evolve in their collection ever since they launched a few months back. There is a flavor of individuality which every SILVETTE piece reflects. The best part is they keep refreshing their collection every few months, which means not many people will have same pieces! I just wish they have more pictures of the product on the website which will help us to make the right choice! Ready to raid silvette? Start now, so that we see more new collection ;)

My dress here is from Sheinside.com. I love how it fits me! Its a size M and sits on my curves as if it was tailored for me. Check the website here. 
The collection always has something for every weather as they cater worldwide. Bombay is seldom cold, as you can see the state in December, nonetheless its romantically pleasant! If I was at a cooler place, I would replace those pumps with my black suede boots and add tights to this outfit!
SHEINSIDE always has some SALE going on, which can only tempt you further. My belief in online shopping for clothes is only strengthening which such International websites. The options are increasing every single day!
The world is becoming a better place!

*Products by the companies mentioned. Opinions are purely my own*
Hand-cuff : SILVETTE.COM
Purse: Accessorize via QUIKR.COM
On my Lips: L'oreal Paris Infallible Persistent Plum

Till next time,I leave you with my Lust list from these 2 websites- Let this Winter be a RIOT of Happy Colors in the dark!

Before I begin this review, let me tell you, I totally ignore any advertisement that says "Glowing skin in 7 days" or "acne-free skin in 30 days". I feel its a scam to attract the vulnerable individuals who are already struggling with umpteen products in their stash , discarding them one by one but to no great effect.

This year has seen the most effective skincare launches of all time. If you have been following the blog, you might have seen my skincare regime being replaced completely by the new launches which have worked wonders for my oily,acne-prone, blemished & pigmented skin.

Last month I was contacted by HERBALIFE. I didnt seem to recognize the brand but then I googled and found out its a famous 1980 est. global nutrition &weight management company which operates through the Direct selling model. Currently present in more than 90 countries! ( Similar to Oriflame/Amway etc)

I checked their presence on social media and whoa! People are crazy over their nutrition products as well as the HERBALIFE SKIN products which is a skincare line. They recently launched the famous HERBALIFE SKIN products in India. I was sent 5 products to try the 7 day challenge which would give me a skin which is:

1) Smoother
2) Softer
3) More radiant (Glowing)
4)Reduced fine lines
5)Reduced Wrinkles

Also, it is paraben-free, sulfate-free and dermatologist tested.

My experience:

Each cream is very light in texture and gets absorbed easily.Comes with a pump, easy to dispense & apply. The most unique packaging,each bottle is packed in 2 cardboard tubes , the third one is a cover with instructions on the inside.
 I followed the regime prescribed on the instructions under the cardboard packing. Every morning I applied the serum followed by the firming eye cream and the moisturiser. Before sleeping I applied the serum again followed by the hydrating eye cream and the night cream. 

The regime felt a bit tedious to me as each time I had to apply 3 products. Initially I was skipping nights as I used to doze off without realising! 
But in 2-3 days I got more disciplined which is why I am reporting post 15 days of use. 

As per the 7 day experiment, 3 products are supposed to bring that change- THE SERUM, Moisturiser & the Night cream.
My skin has VISIBLY become brighter & smoother. My acne blemishes are gradually fading with a visible difference.
The pigmentation is going away . I can now skip my BB cream altogether! None of the products have SPF, so during the day you might want to apply sunscreen, I didn't.About wrinkles , I don't have them so much to notice however since the skin is looking smoother I can say that fine lines must be vanishing too.

I am really happy with the fact that there is a constant glow on the skin, which I experienced only after peels or my favorite collagen cream. All you need is a little discipline to achieve these results. According to me this is the best gift for a bride . Even for occassions when you have little time to yourself, HERBALIFE SKIN can transform your skin with its superemely effective botanicals. 

The bottles will easily last me for 3 months. The 5 products cost approx. 12,500. If we skip the eye creams it will be about 7500. Yes, the price tag is very high, but it promises the results. If you go for chemical treatments for your skin ,it can cost almost 3000 per sitting or more. And the results dont last forever. I have been there ,done that, all kinds of peels . But right now I am so happy with my skin , I have never been before! I want to make this regime a regular. Especially brides must give it a go from their beauty budget ;)

All I can say is, the 7,500 is justified when you see your skin post 7 days. Infact you start seeing the glow from day 1 . Are you going to try this transformation? I am looking forward to know your beauty story!

I was bowled over by the ZA Perfect solution Restoring Collagen cream as you read in my review here.

I was naturally curious to try the entire PERFECT SOLUTION range. This foam comes with the same fuschia packaging which is so beautiful and catchy; now lets see if the product inside was impressive!

What the Za wbsite says:

This Cleansing Foam has a rich, resilient lather that permeates into the skin to gently remove impurities and make skin feeling plump, firm and glowing.
Removes excess surface cells to give clear, radiant and soft skin.

How to Use

Squeeze a small amount onto your palm and add warm water to create foam. Massage gently over face in circular motion. Rinse thoroughly.


AMT (selective cleansing ingredient)
Yuzu Seed Extract

Price Rs.399

All product lines from Za are exclusively available at Shoppers’ Stop, Central, New-U, Health & Glow in Mumbai, Delhi NCR & Bangalore.

My experience 

A small pea-sized amount is required to wash the face. It is a cream-based foaming facewash . Personally, I find foaming face washes very drying even for my oily skin as its important to keep the face hydrated and moisturised even if its oily. This face wash left my skin feeling fresh and clean however I felt it was drying my skin. I immediately felt the need to use a moisturiser . I therefore opened the Global ZA website and found out the usage. As you can see in the image below, the usage is face wash followed by toner and the moisturiser ,sealed with the collagen cream. I luckily had the moisturiser which is Elle Beauty awards winner for 2014. After that I felt my skin was finally feeling good. So , for me this delicately scented face wash will work only if I follow it with a moisturiser or else it is mildly drying. I have seen other people with just the opposite opinion however, you can only try it yourself to judge if it works for you. As for the anti-ageing bit, I strongly feel the Za collagen cream is my best friend and I could live solely on that. About the face wash's effectiveness to fight the anti-ageing process we might have to stick to the 4 step process to know the real results. 
The 100 ml tube will last a good 3 months with an extensive usage (Ideally twice a day is enough).  This face wash is part of the Perfect solution range and the recommended usage as per Za's global website is explained in the image below. I will advise trying the face wash followed by a moisturiser.

And now for 10 lucky readers, 20 travel size Za minis are up for grabs so you can stay fresh even while you travel! All you have to do is COMMENT on the blog & mention your {NAME, TWITTER HANDLE, CITY} and keep tweeting to us till tomorrow with hashtag #ZaGiveaway !  Results on Friday 28th November! Till then TWEET and REPEAT :)

I dream of LUXE {WATCHES]

 Though we are all budget-lovers and fleamarket hoarders, it doesn't hurt to see what people on the other side of the planet: I call it the "luxury haven" are upto! I take you through the top 3 women's watches I fell in love with. There is a story and a beautiful one behind each of these stellar creations! Read on...

Il Giardino Tropicale di Bulgari (Tropical Garden of Bulgari) Il Giardino Tropicale di Bulgari is Bulgari’s first tourbillon designed and created for ladies. The champlevé enamel dial is crafted using a number of mastered techniques. First, the tropical design is carved into a gold base. Then, a master gem-setter sets brilliant cut diamonds into some of the flower petals and branches. Next, a master enameller fills the cavities with moist powdered enamel. Three layers of enamel are applied for the flowers, five layers for the leaves and eight layers for the parrot. After each layer is applied, the dial is cleaned and fired in a kiln. A single dial may require up to 25 kiln firings. Finally, after polishing, the tropical enamel design is set onto an ivory lacquer base dial.
The colourful dial is framed by a 37mm 18-carat pink gold case. The timepiece is fitted with a 56-jewel Calibre GG 9051 automatic movement with a Tourbillon mounted on a sapphire crystal bridge. Production is limited to just 50 pieces. (source)
 Van Cleef & Arpels :The Pont des Amoureux Timepiece

Paris’ Pont des Arts, that uniquely romantic setting, symbolizes the union between the two banks of the Seine. In this timepiece, it also represents the beginning of a love story. 
Thanks to the complex Retrograde movement which animates its dial, two characters meet for a kiss at noon and midnight. 
Their poetic embrace on the Pont des Amoureux symbolizes life’s happiest moments: those which are devoted to love.
The moonlight which bathes the Parisian façades is highlighted by an enameling technique used on a watch for the very first time: Contre-Jour enamel. 
By meticulously hand-painting details in black and white, a spectacular and mysterious effect of architectural relief is obtained.

Métiers d’Art Fabuleux Ornements – Chinese embroidery Glyptics, gemstone cloisonné work and engraving

  Crafted in pink gold according to the cloisonné technique, the dial is carpeted with flowers in rubies, cuprites and garnets. Like the silk thread Chinese embroideries embellished with precious fabrics, the graceful elegance of the stones cut and sculpted according to the glyptic art are adorned with finely engraved gold leaves and pistils. Concern for detail taken to extremes, as epitomised in the veins of the plants and the rounded shape of the petals, endow this ornamentation with a fascinating depth effect. The particularly delicate ruby engraving is a true challenge. The pink opals are individually cut and lapped to form a tapestry of stones on a dial prepared for this purpose with barely 0.5 mm thin white gold partitions. The impressive finesse of the work accomplished by the master lapidaries and engravers pays a vibrant tribute to the traditional art of embroidery exercised for millennia in China. 

It has taken me a day to compile these favorites and I loved unearthing the beauties!If you like the LUXE series, tell me,I would love to delve deep and bring more pieces of luxe fashion from the art dungeons!

So you just saw this last photo. What just happened? No, I am not one of those tourists who pull locals from the crowds for photos (ROFL). While I kept getting clicked myself , Uncle- as I would like to call him ran and stood with me and said, 1 with me too! And this happened twice in PARIS :O
**No comments**

So back to this look, I wore it on the 3rd day in Paris when I was to visit the famous Notre Dame cathedral and wander the streets of the heart of Paris- starting from the 4th district.This was also the day I caught a cold so terrible it left me after a week only after I was back in Mumbai. Aaachooo! Imagine catching a cold and feeling all cold in temperatures ranging 8-10 degrees. I decided not to feel defeated and defeat the cold instead. I kept my cool,stayed happy from within and thanks to determination, I could channelize all the positive energy and enjoy the remaining 7 days with a stuffy nose and a painful sore throat.Oh and that is the famous AMORINO gelato in my hands- I am a FANGIRL. AMORRRINNO!I had this gelato on atleast 3 days after catching cold :D :D  I used tonnes of tissue papers to wipe my nose. Sorry france,If I used too much paper, I had to enjoy you anyways. Everywhere I went I was collecting tissues.I killed the cold, not physically, but mentally :D

Well, again, back to this look!!! God was so kind! I was passing by Bandra,hill road 3 days before I was to travel for Paris! This TRES CHIC jumper lined with fleece is one cosy and totally 'ON TREND' find . The typography trend is big since SS14 and I could not resist grabbing this piece even if it was a bit loose.

I somehow end up with vacations in Autumn/winters which is why I never get to wear the summer clothes. This time I was determined to wear my favorite skirt and the thermal tights were a blessing.

The thermal tights are another lovely steal from the M&S SALE in August this year! They surprised me with how warm and cosy they are & the style++.

Did you like this look? And does my nose look stuff here ? :D
More PARIS posts coming soon. Only if you enjoy them :D

{FASHION} What I wore in PARIS ft.LOUVRE


Metallic grey jacket- DEBENHAMS ( SALE -Rs.1700.MRP-5500)

Tassel Belt -PROMOD( SALE -Rs.1000,MRP-Rs.2200)
OMBRE pants- ONLY( Sale Rs.1000, MRP- 2500)
Black Suede leather boots-  Springfield( From Pax-Colaba at just Rs.990, for an export piece of 55GBP)
Grey warmer- JOCKEY( Rs.300)

I loved doing these jumpy shots,because everyone around didnt bother. If you look closely, you see 2 couples almost so much in love. There was a certain air of romance and people dont shy, In france, the expression of LOVE is to let go, SET FREE- sealed with a kiss ;)

Hello folks!

I know you were waiting for these posts for a while now. I so wanted to reach Paris & discover that it was overly-hyped but NO! I fell in the trap. This beautiful city is indeed a gem. So dense, so artsy, even an year would be less to discover every interesting thing about this well-preserved capital. I will be telling you more about the city in my travel section, for now lets get back to our favorite-THE CLOTHES!

Paris is the fashion capital of the world and this made me google extensively on what i should wear to look as stylish as every Parisian around.I had all the pretty dresses with lace, stripes and flare on my mind, ofcourse complete with bumblebee glasses and a pretty hat. But ,SUPRISE! I did none of that. Forecasts said temperature range would be between 10-15 degrees and I didnt want to rattle in the cold like last year in Rome! ANOTHER SURPRISE: The parisians dress very much like how I did in Autumn. Every youngster has an edgy punk-rock-ISH vibe about his/her clothing. None of them really feminine. Though I did see the grandmas wearing the kind of stuff we imagine parisians would wear!

I carried 2 boots- The BEST idea ever. The trick is to keep your feet warm and the rest of the body can bear a little lesser warm clothes. Two warm tights to wear with the boots- The Marks & Spencer thermal tights did a wonderful job(Will show in the next post). Two Jackets- One I wore here: My favorite jacket ever from Debenhams( Got it for Rs.1700 in SALE,MRP 5500). Its a steal and ups your glamor quotient instantly- yes those frills make it look so awesome!

For my face, I wanted a nude look- So i opted for bold eyebrows( eyebrow liner + Loreal Kajal Magique) and Bourjois lip liner in No.12 and Deborah Milano Atomic Matt in No.2 . Wore Za Collagen cream with with my Rimmel London BB CREAM and BOOM- I loved how this turned out!

I wore this to the LOUVRE musuem , yeah , a date with Monalisa had to have a HEART! This quilted heart cropped top is warm and I got it for dirt cheap in Bandra(Rs.250) . It might still be around hill road , if you may want! No, I am not giving away this one yet! Hope you enjoy this look!
Stay tuned for all the FRANCE -WHAT I WORE posts & travel posts!

Till next time,
