Outfit of the day - Blue stripes

Hello peeps! I am back with an outfit post after a long time! My darling Varaa has been taking up so much of my time that I just could not click any pics :-D But at last managed some while she was taking a nap ;-)

This off shoulder blue striped dress is a recent purchase during the August sales. I love the simple and elegant lines of the dress and so decided to keep the whole outfit simple. I paired the dress with a pair of gold earrings and gold heels and that's it. 

Hope you like the styling of this dress. Let me know what you think in the comments!

And with winter fast approaching, have an update on the latest styles in trenchcoats at Stylewe. Check out www.stylewe.com.

Fantastic jumpsuits at Stylewe

I recently went shopping at just the end of the sale season .... after more than a year! And it felt so good! :-D The reason for the shopping break was of course my little angel. But now that she has grown, I found some me time and gave myself a treat :-)

One of the items I purchased is a jumpsuit, my first one. I never thought a jumpsuit could look good on me given my petite structure. So I was very pleasantly surprised to get one in my size and also one that made me look tall!

Having found one, I of course wanted to find more. And so I went online. And found the most adorable jumpsuits on Stylewe. They have such a wide variety of jumpsuits including H-line jumpsuits and in such beautiful patterns too. And also my favorite - a two piece jumpsuit :-)

Following are a few of my favorites. Let me know which ones you like! And don't forget to check the facebook page of Stylewe - https://www.facebook.com/stylewe/

Beautiful communion dresses

First communion is such a special occasion. I am not a Christian, but I have quite a few Christian friends and I know how important they consider it to be. They celebrate it as a festive occasion with a gathering of the family and a party to celebrate the event.

During a first communion, girls wear white communion dresses which are very special. They also wear a veil attached to a headdress as well white gloves. Seeing little girls in such lovely dresses, I decided to search online and see whether I could get a nice white dress for Varaa. We might not celebrate communion, but I would love to dress up Varaa in communion dresses.

So searching for first communion dresses, I came across the website - Mariacommunion. They have the prettiest holy communion dresses for little girls. The collection is so fantastic, that I am quite tempted to order a lot of dresses for Varaa. Am just waiting for my little angel to grow up a bit and start walking on her own. Then I can just imagine how sweet she will look in these dresses :-)

I have shared a few of my favorites below, and believe me it was quite difficult to shortlist just a few! Aren't all of them just precious???!!!

Trendy tops at Fashionmia

Hello Lovelies! I am back with a post introducing Fashionmia to you. It is an online store which stocks fashion tops and women's tops along with dresses, pants, skirts and jumpsuits. 

With a little angel to look after, I do not get much time to go out and browse around and shop. So these days shopping is all online. While looking for tops online, I was impressed with the collection at Fashionmia which has tops for women which look trendy and at the same time has cheap tops ranging from $4 to $30. This is perfect for me as I can order a lot of beautiful tops without a big hit on my wallet :-) To check out the tops, please click on the link below:

The tops at Fashionmia are very fashionable and you can find stuff to wear to the office or to a party and even casual tops for just a day around the house. I have picked a few favorites to showcase on my blog. Let me know which ones you like!

Outfit post - Varaa's wardrobe :)

And I have again been gone a long time. With a little angel who needs all my attention and who exhausts me completely so that her bedtime becomes mine, blogging has become difficult. But since this is something I love, I will continue somehow :)

While Varaa has already debuted on the blog, I thought it was time to showcase her wardrobe here as well :-) She is 8 months old, but due to the monsoons, I do not take her out much. And she currently lives in shirts, pants and socks; or onsies with full sleeves.

But for going out before the monsoons, I used to put her in a simple frock and socks. So her wardrobe mainly consists of frocks.

Since Varaa has very little hair currently, she looks like a boy. So despite having her ears pierced and though she is in frocks, most people think she is a boy! And my reaction is generally like Rachel's - want to punch the person (Friends fans will understand this ;-)) I am seriously thinking of putting a pink bow on her :D

So presenting her wardrobe below. Do let me know which one is your favorite!!!

PS: None of these fit her anymore :D

Outfit of the Day - Formal to Party

As I mentioned in the previous post, in this post, I converted my formal outfit into party wear by changing some accessories. So in case I need to attend a party straight from office, I am all set!

I removed the jacket and pearl necklace from the formal outfit and instead added silver danglers. I swapped the red purse for a white clutch and changed into silver heels and I was done!

So do you like the dress in its party avatar? Let me know!

Color in Formals - After pregnancy

Hello peeps! While I resumed blogging in March of this year, I have till date been sharing old pics taken during or before pregnancy. This is the first photo shoot after pregnancy and I was so happy to get back to doing OOTDs! :-)

Since Varaa is still quite small, I do not go out much. And when I do go out, it is more about getting Varaa ready and me just grabbing any old thing lying around. So it was a pleasure to again dress up and think about what accessories to wear. 

I wore the shift dress in this post during pregnancy till the seventh month and now it is useful for hiding the post pregnancy fat ;-) For wearing it to the office, I paired it with a cream lace jacket, a pearl necklace and grey pumps. Added a light pink gloss and I was done. And the pop of color from the red purse. Love the elegance that a string of pearls can add to any outfit!

I will also be doing a post on how to convert this outfit into a party outfit if you need to attend a party after office. For now, I hope you like this OOTD. Do let me know in the comments!

Designer wedding dresses at Cocomelody

Its springtime! And while looking at the lovely flowers from my window (will share pics of those in another post), I thought this is the perfect time for a wedding :-) It would be so gorgeous to have an outdoor wedding under these beautiful flowers. Would be like a dream wedding. And thinking of weddings, I decided to visit the Cocomelody website to check out the dresses available there.

Cocomelody also stocks designer wedding dresses which are so beautiful and dreamy. I can imagine myself floating down the aisle in one of these fantastic creations. It would make it the perfect day for any bride :-)

For someone looking for more modest dresses, Cocomelody also offers wedding dresses with sleeves which are just as amazing and so so tempting! So check out some of my favorites and do visit the Cocomelody website to check out their entire range.

Shower time with Beddinginn

I have visited so many places, stayed in so many hotels and bunked in with so many friends. And one of the things I have noticed at all these places, are the different types of shower curtains in the bathrooms :-) Some are plain, some are funny, some are elegant and some are weird :D

So when I came across Beddinginn.com, I was very interested in checking out the shower curtains available on the website. And I was pleasantly surprised to see the wide variety of unique shower curtains they have. They also have luxury shower curtains which are elegant and sometimes quirky! They even have 3D shower curtains which look quite realistic.

To check out the different options available at Beddinginn.com, please click here.

I have some of my favorites from the website here. Let me know what you think!

Guest post: Featuring Mansi again

Mansi featured on my blog quite a long time ago, almost 2 years ago! Well, she is back again ... and this time with her family which includes her husband Bhavesh and her cute little kids - Krisheev and Aavishka :-)

Mansi is one of my role models, when it comes to work and also when it comes to raising kids. Now that I have Varaa, I constantly call her up to take advice on all baby stuff :-) In addition to all this, she also has a great sense of style which comes through in the below pics. 

These pics were taken on the occasion of Aavishka's first birthday and the destination is Kurumba Resorst in Maldives. That reminds me, Mansi is my role model when it comes to travel as well :D

So tell me, aren't they like the cutest family? I love the way they have coordinated the girl boy dresses - with Aavishka and Mansi having the headband in common, and Krisheev and Bhavesh wearing the exact same clothes. And the braid on Mansi is the perfect way to highlight the headband.

The cute family

Mansi's dress - Macy's (NY)
Aavishka's dress - Farah Balsara party frocks
Mansi and Aavishka's head bands - Farah Balsara party frocks

My mommy day gift :-)

May 8th was my first Mommy day. Though I have been with Varaa for more than 5 months now, it still was a small shock to suddenly realize that I was a mommy for the rest of my life :-) I know that sounds ridiculous, but I am still sometimes surprised to discover that I have this incredible gift from God and that I am her mommy!

So this mommy day, I got a cute little card from my little princess and also a box of my favorite sweets. I have put up the pics of the card below. Unfortunately, I ate up the sweets and forgot to take pics :D

So for all the mommies out there, how was your mommy day?

So what do you think of this outfit? Like it?

Outfit of the day - Black and long

My little princess turned 5 months today and so I decided to put a post :D I am planning a post featuring all her clothes that she currently wears. Hope you all would be interested in that :)

The pics in this post were taken quite some time back, but somehow I never posted them. Was so happy to come across these pics so that I can put up an outfit post. I have no time at all to take outfit pics with the princess demanding all my attention ;-)

I love this long dress with the vertical stripes since it makes me look taller. I paired it with a multi-colored necklace and a small colorful bag to complete the outfit. I also wore this dress when I was preggers and have shared a few pics of that as well!

Hope you like this outfit. Do let me know in the comments!

Outfit of the Day - Preggy floral

This is another post which is late in coming. I took some outfit pics in my last trimester but was too tired to put up posts and blog. So am sharing this outfit now.

This is one of few formal outfits which were still fitting me in the 8th month of pregnancy. I bought this dress in Korea and paired it with the round purse that I bought in Spain. Added a pair of blue heels and I was done!

Let me know what you think of my outfit :-)

Outfit of the Day - Godh Bharai

This post is quite late in coming. But at last I am sharing pics from my Godh Bharai :) For those who do not understand, Godh Bharai is equivalent to a baby shower in India, but with a religious twist! It happens in the seventh month of pregnancy which in my case was September 2015. In a Godh Bharai, we light lamps, and ladies in the family (married ladies) give gifts and blessings to the expectant mother.

I wore a pink and gold saree for my Godh Bharai with lots of gold jewelry and flowers in my hair. All of this is a requirement since I am married into a South Indian family :)

Following are some pics of me :) Hope you like the saree! - Aditi, this post is especially for you! ;-)

Saree - from Pothy's in Madurai
Jewelery - gifted by mom for my wedding

Pregnancy - Dealing with gestational diabetes

I have been planning to do a series of pregnancy posts to share my experience during pregnancy and also to answer questions that any of my readers might have. I am starting with gestational diabetes as one of my readers, Anjali Sengar, particularly asked for this when I announced Varaa's arrival.
Source: Google

What is gestational diabetes and what you need to do?
Gestational diabetes means high sugar levels in a pregnant woman as the production of insulin is hampered by the hormones produced by the woman. A woman would be more at risk of gestational diabetes if 
- she is above 30 years of age
- there is a family history of diabetes
- she has a sedentary lifestyle during pregnancy
- she smokes
These are the main reasons. Of course, a woman could get gestational diabetes even without any of the above reasons. 

Given our hectic lifestyle, it is now compulsory for every pregnant woman to get a Glucose Tolerance Test (GTT) done in the sixth month of pregnancy to check whether she has diabetes. Please keep this in mind and insist that this test is done even if the gynecologist does not advise it. I am saying this cause my gynecologist told me not to get this test done despite the fact that my father has diabetes. This is one of the reasons that I changed doctors in the seventh month of my pregnancy (but that is a topic of a separate post - how useless my first gynecologist was).

If the GTT suggests that you have diabetes, then your gynecologist will call you immediately and will tell you what needs to be done which would include quite some changes to lifestyle and diet.

Welcome Little Princess!

So .... I am back after a really long hiatus. Most of you of course know the reason for this long break from blogging. For those who were unaware, I was expecting and hubby and I welcomed our little princess in November :)

I stopped blogging much before November cause the last trimester is anyways tiring with the extra weight that I was carrying. Also, I ended up with gestational diabetes which made me all the more tired :(

Anyways, all that is done and our little princess is now almost 3 months old. She still takes up most of my time - sleeping or awake :-p.... But I thought I will try and get back to blogging by sacrificing a little sleep :-D I really hope I can keep it up!

I don't have any pics to share as yet ... but wanted to let you all know that our bundle of joy has arrived and we have named her Varaa.

Varaa is another name of Goddess Parvathi (one of the Indian Goddesses - the wife of Lord Shiva). We wanted to keep a name which had some connection to God and so finally settled on Varaa :-)

Please welcome Varaa and shower your blessings on her :-)
