My Wedding Choos!

Just thought I would share some details!

For my reception I went for Jimmy Choo!

I am not a heels kind of girl, just cant walk in them which is why I chose the brand as great craftsmanship means their shoes are that little bit easier to cope with! I opted for something not too high - these are pretty comfortable and I can last a few hours in them before I need to slip into some flats!

My Tip: If you struggle with heels then either practice till you can do it or seriously stick to what you can manage - I've seen the odd bride hobble around and its not a good look!

 I believe these are still part of their bridal range and a great option for that special wedding treat!

Kerastase VS Redken - Coloured hair




Shampoo is a subject very close to my heart. I am very particular about what I put on my hair,who cuts and colours it so naturally what I wash it with is of the upmost importance especially now that I have the Balayage look to maintain... too harsh and the toners gone and colour looks tooooo stark - tooo gentle and its not getting clean and I walk around looking like a greasy monkey...

I have been a fan of Kerastase for years and have been using it for about 7 years now - I try and interchange with cheaper brands in between purchases as its quite expensive and because I am of the school of thought that you should occasionally change and using a clearing shampoo just to make sure there is no build up.

I decided to try Redken for a change  - well mostly because Im a sucker and the packaging says 'Color extend Magnetics' and I thought 'OOOhhhhh Colour will last longer - less trips to the salon - Im gonna save me some cash!!' Yes I work in marketing and I should be fully aware that what they say may not be true but i did not care and bought myself the whole package - two bottles + conditioner and you know what it was a big fat mistake!!!

Its just not suitable for my hair - lots of people love it - my hairdresser likes it too so I am sure its a great product but for me it has the greasy monkey affect :( My hair just looks lank and greasy - Im talking greasy by the end of the day, not day 2!!

I still have another bottle sat spare....

Friday Guldastaa

I love florals - Have done so since I was a little kid. When we used to go to southall back in the day to pick fabrics for my desi wear I would always pick the florals and my mum would comment there is a granny inside waiting to get out!

The shift from motifs to floral designs has been on the horizon for some time but was fully stamped this week at Lakme India Fashion week - its everywhere from mens wear to printed floral lehngas (Which I LOVE)

Some of my fav botanical looks...

Bunto Bride

I don't often share videos and to be honest get bored watching them but this had me hooked... (the track soothes the soul!)

This really is a gorgeous bride and a stunning outfit by Bunto Kazmi - I love the colour, work and jewelry and love the way the bride kept her make up toned down. Beautiful!

Spring Lust List

Spring is trying ever so hard to squeeze its way through here in London - Its really put me in the mood to add a few lighter pieces

Firstly I reallllllly want these loafers from Russell & Bromley!! I don't fare well with heels - just cant walk in them and its not often I come across a flat pair which I love so much!

I am just a little undecided on which colour to get? I'm going to try not to buy both as they're on the pricey side but these will make lovely work shoes for me!!



Next on my list is a pastel coat, my main problem is that most Ive come across are quite a boxy fit which really doesn't work on me - I need some structure to my coats - the Karen Millen one looks as though it may work although I am more inclined towards blush shades from Reiss... 




Next up is an outfit by Sonal Kalra Ahuja I love the look of, I have a very dear friends very special wedding coming up and as its not a desi affair I need something suitable for a traditional English Spring wedding and something like this would be perfect!! My non asian friends love me wearing saris and other Indian looks to their weddings and this I think is a nice cross between cultures - I would pair this with a blazer and pearls but alas its a bit out of my budget! EEEkkkk!!!
