Summertime Refresher - Cafe Coffee Day Summer Slam !

   Summer is in full swing here in Mumbai and we all have our favourite ways to beat the heat and have some fun in the sun. Personally for me nothing spells summer better than indulging in some delicious refreshing chilled beverages, to cool off and re-energize..So I was pretty kicked to be invited for the Cafe Coffee Day Event as they launched their new summertime refresher, ‘Summer Slam’ - A delicious range of chilled smoothies & slushes bursting with some delicious flavours.
  Cafe Coffee Day was a gracious host and I had an absolute blast at the event with some delicious tastings, posing at the photo booth with life-size standees of the CCD Slushes & Smoothies, fun games & activities and of course catching up with my fellow blogger friends. I wore a pretty summer outfit for the event - a tropical print crop top with a peach pleated maxi skirt.

The Caprese Spring-Summer '15 Story !

   International handbag brand Caprese, is inspired from the Mediterranean Island of Capri, that was launched two years ago. Their advertisement campaigns with young actress Alia Bhatt have become quite the rage, resonating very well with the youth.
    I recently had the chance to preview the Caprese Spring-Summer 2015 Collection for the POPxo Blog Network.
   Caprese handbags are designed in fine Italian tradition of pleasing aesthetics and lasting quality. Created from choice materials with precision and craftsmanship, Caprese refreshes their entire line of handbags every season. They have a dedicated team of designers who reinvent the entire range keeping abreast with the latest trends. Apart from their design, I love that Caprese focuses a great deal on functionality, I love the ample space in each bag, the interiors of the bags are very well compartmentalized, they have zipper closures and smaller pockets to hold your cellphone etc. The bags also have an outside zipper pocket for easy access. 
  The Caprese Spring Summer 2015 Collection has a an array of hobos, totes, satchels, clutches and sling bags to suit a variety of different occasions & styling needs. the palette includes pleasing pastels, bold colours like crispy corals, fuchsia alongside the classic colours like black, tan, camel.
   I picked a few of my favourite bags from the Caprese Spring Summer'15 collection to style for 2 different occasions, for - Brunch &  Girl at Work.

An Evening of Primping & Pampering !

   Which woman doesn't love to indulge herself in some much needed pampering and especially when the when it comes to her nails. I personally have a huge obsession with nail varnishes and interesting nail art. So I was pretty kicked about attending the
recent launch of  LYN (Live Your Now) Nail Lacquers at the Juice Salon, Khar with my fellow blogger friends. We all had a blast time getting beautiful color themed manicures and pedicures done. My color theme was - Sleepink Beauty. So keeping the theme in mind I went with this fuchsia pink rose print flare midi skirt paired with a plain black tee and accessorized the look with this matching necklace with pink & black roses.
