It's given, if I meet you for the first time I am not going to tell you i am a blogger, or anything about my online self. I would mostly say I am on time off  or i write for a website or something like that. If at all i do tell you there is no way i am going to share what my blog name or social media handles are unless and until you are a person related to this field or in my opinion have the sensibility to understand it. Why??? Two reasons.


  1. Even in 2017, well 2018 now, people don't get it. Some are oblivious to the word.  Some think it's not really an occupation and only a pastime. It's just free clothes and makeup. A person becomes a blogger for fame and not love for the profession. And a zillion other absurd opinions. Some actually not entirely the persons fault because a lot of girls take to blogging only for the social media fame. But they are not bloggers or content creators. It's also been really hard for me to explain what exactly I do to my extended family and I feel it takes a lot of patience to explain what I do so to just avoid that energy loss I take the easier path.
  2. If I meet someone for the first time I don't want to tell them about my online self and give access to so much about me. I mean I feel it should be fair you know me as much as I know you but if you have access to my online self you know much more about me than I know about you. Ok even though I am the same person you see and read here on the blog and social media but it's all curated. Real life me even though the same is not exactly the same. Even on instastories that are the closest to what my life is but they are just 1 min from 1440 mins in a day that I chose to share with you. So your judgements about me based on what you see and read on the blog and social media are not going to be right, so why create the confusion. I have also heard from my friends that both sexes decide on whether they want to meet a girl or boy again based on what they see of them on social media. My term for such boys is LAME BOYS and girls is LAME GIRLS. I mean like seriously.  A girl i recently met on the train told me ( i like to chat with anyone and everyone and do a bit of a research) that she would not want to be friends with a blogger because if they go somewhere fancy the blogger would ask her to take pictures of herself (lol obviously i hadn't told her i was a blogger)!!!









Basically its all about judging. Some don't know what a blogger means and some who do will stereotype. And some will think they know you in and out just from your online personality. All ridiculous. So let there be a couple of meetings, let there be a fair play before i tell you i am XYZ. 

Thank you for stopping by! See you with my next.

I am one for celebrations so i always look forward to festivals and holidays but i realize they can be a  hard time for people with any level of grief or sadness. I think all of us have or do just different  levels and times. Could be breakup, or death or finance or loneliness or work or any sort of loss. Its not always glittery and sparkly and warm and cheerful. You want to be left alone and all the merry making to not be banged on your face, like literally. The decorations and festive cheer act more as reminders of the grief than anything else. Ah and social media overflowing with warmth to the point of disturbing.  I mean the content is just so sickly sweet. And sometimes its nothing specific or wrong but you just want to keep low but the constant reminders 'x no of days left for diwali or christmas or eid' or whatever that is!!! 'have you decided what you are wearing?' 'what are you shopping for xyz blah blah blah',  won't leave you. The traditions bite. Consumerism at its peak, i mean people spending more than they would ever earn in the next two months, its ridiculous.  And then come the falsehoods of people acting and going far beyond their own happiness, its never 24x7 joy after all. 


If you are going through any form of stress and not in the mood do everything to protect yourself. Like staying away from social media or whatever that adds to your stress. Be open just say you are not in the mood or you don't want to. Don't think just because it is some festival you owe it to it or anyone to celebrate or do something. 
And for others be mindful of what you are saying, doing and putting up around festivals. Your state of mind and level of well being might not be others so care and be real.  Sensitivity to others perspective is also a form of celebration after all!! Includes me, includes all of us.

Vlog- Christmas time in London

Let me officially put it, December is the best month to be in London. No matter how the weather behaves, which also is not that crazy, because no city in the world does Christmas like London.  If one word can describe London around Christmas time it is, magical, very magical and for a girl who believes in magic there is no better place. By December I mean the days before Christmas, can get a tad bit dull and sad after. 


1. December is off tourist season, ok I accept that people are shopping and the streets can be a bit crowded specially regent street and bond street, etc but its nothing like the touristy summer months.

2. Everywhere you go specially central London there is beautiful decoration, lights and it all. Christmas songs playing in the stations, taxis, on the street basically the festive mood is everywhere. I love to carry my camera around everywhere, taking snapshots of my beloved city.  And the decked up beauty makes up for everything, like seriously.

3. People are super jolly and happy, greetings and cheers. I believe it's the people that make a place and happy people make London more magical around Christmas time. 

4. There are zillion things to do. Skate at the ice rinks, my favourite is somerset house or go to winter wonderland. Eat at the Christmas markets and load up on the mulled wine. Bursting with season activities. 

5. Visit the Christmas lit Covent garden, Fortnum and Mason, Selfridges, Liberty or just wrap up warm and walk around Mayfair and soak into the season. 

Christmas day is dull because no one is literally there, you can have the whole Oxford street to yourself, which can be a good thing if you are a blogger, lol and then you can hit the stores on 26 for boxing day sales. But I suggest online shopping for all the many reasons. 





























I encourage you to experience this mood of London and fall in love with it all over again. 

Thank you for stopping by, see you with my next.

If there was one coat I wanted to get this winter and wear for many winters to come was the teddy coat. You could say it was coming to my wardrobe pretty soon from my winter trend post featuring the teddy bear coat. With a teddy coat on I, don’t have to bother about the layers because it is soooooo warm and cosy also a treat for people I meet and hug. I also love the teddy coat for the fun it brings to winter fashion which tends to be limiting after a while. 



Literally spoilt for choice since they are in so many styles, designs and colours at the moment. But the longer style appealed more because I just put it on and don't need anything else and you know I love blush pink,  already a statement and top it with the fur texture, cant be any better. It's such a treat to spot someone wearing a blush teddy in a sea of blacks!!! 

I wore my teddy bear coat on my frolics around Christmas lit London and not even once I felt even mildly cold.  Kept everything simple and went for red over the knee boots to complete the look. white and red a killer combo and a big thumbs to the teddy coat for both practicality and style. 






What I wore - Teddy coat - Asos, Boots - River Island


Do you love the teddy bear coat? Thank you for stopping by, see you with my next.

The teddy bear coat is all you need

Black vinyl is really a super sleek way to make a stunning statement!! A trench coat is mandatory in London but the usual beige and khaki ones can be boring at times so I was really glad to have found this powerful head turning piece at Asos. I love pieces like this because they are understated yet so impactful and that is exactly what my style is. A plain tee and jeans outfit elevated to the next level with a shiny vinyl trench!!!! Adding gloss to formal wear and working well with evening wear, its really one of those unexpected workhorse pieces. Styling a Vinyl trench is super simple just remember the one rule to not bulk it up. 


  1. Wear with your more feminine pieces to balance the masculinity and edginess of the vinyl. I chose a flare sleeve jumper to soften it.
  2. Red is a great colour to wear with Vinyl, looks great, photographs great and obviously gives a more romantic touch to the outfit. 
  3. Wear with something polished to add contrast to a wide leg trouser or a formal shirt.
  4. Vinyl is also a great piece for an all black look. Think textures.
  5. Play with shoes like me, I went for silver metallic boots and got compliments for the outfit throughout the day!!

I see my black vinyl trench serving me throughout the year, specially with the right layering in spring, autumn, and winter and on my travels. 







What I wore - Trench - Asos, Scarf - Asos, Boots - River island, Jumper - Nakd 


Are you digging the black vinyl trench trend? Hope you liked my outfit. Thank you for stopping by, see you with my next.
