Let’s Patch Things up-Part 2

In my last post Lets Patch things up- part 1, I wrote about the latest trend of badges, patches, brooches and pins and how to style your clothing using this trend. This post is on styling accessories and shoes using badges, patches, brooches and pins.

  1. Trendy Bags:-

Back when I was in school we use to put badges on our backpack for the cool kids effect. Back then there were not many choices when it came to badges and patches. Smiley faces in round shape were easily available. Later came the badges with our favourite superhero emblems and TV stars (I remember owning a few Hannha Montana badges) but the shape was still round.

Now with the wide variety of designs and shapes being available, decorating your backpack is super easy. Big brands are embracing the patch trend and decorating their purses, totes, pouches, slings and clutches too.

Brands like Karl Lagerfeld and Gucci have  also been using patches and badges lately to stay on trend and make their bags unique.

2. Caps/ Beanies/Hats:-

80s hair and head accessories have had a major fashion influence. Bikers and sports fan have always been seen rocking patches on their caps. But now its not just limited to bikers and sports fans or caps.

Putting 2 or 3 pins on a beanie is a great way to style this up.  You can also sew on a few patches on your favorite hat to match your outfit or location.pilled-up6c366f77f17ed0ccc2a02598278687db

3. Shoes:-

Patches can be put on any footwear – from boots to bellies and from heels to flats.

DIY your old pair of loafers or sneakers by sewing on some fun patches. Your boots can be given a whole new look by loading them with pins. For example, you can put the GAME OVER patch on your shoes for a great effect.tendencia-parches-zapatillas-renzo-costa-blogScreenshot_2016-04-17-10-28-54-1.png

January Favourites 2017!!

Hey Guys,

I know most of us have already screwed up our new year resolutions. If you haven’t three cheers to you 🙂 My two resolutions were to gain some weight and travel a lot more. Lets just say I have managed to loose a few pounds and have not even stepped into my balcony. So ya, I have failed big time.

Lets talk about the good things that I have discovered and come to love this new year. Here are my January Favourites.

1. Bath and Body Works French Lavender And Honey Body wash:-

This Body wash is simply divine. It contains Shea Butter, Vitamin C and Aloe Vera.

It provides luxuriously rich lather.

This amazing product from Bath and Body works leaves my skin feeling irresistably soft and beautifully fragranced.img_1996img_1994

2. The Body Shop Vitamin E Hydrating Toner:-

This is my favourite toner so far. It is alcohol free toner with shots of vitamin E protection.

It is a clear, odorless liquid and is suitable for all skin types.

The bottle is of 200 ml and will last you for a good 4-5 months.img_2091

3. Combat Boots:-

All the girls will totally get me when I say that I am crazy about shoes. My mom thinks I have some kind of a weird addiction because I cannot stop buying them :p

These Combat Boots are my fashion favourite for this month. They go with almost all of my outfits, plus they are so warm 🙂

They are a great buy as they are super stylish and super comfy.IMG_2103.JPG

4. Maybelline Hyper Glossy Liquid eyeliner in shade ELECTRO SHOCK:-

I am that person who would not walk out of her house without an eyeliner on. Hell, I sometimes apply dramatic cat eye liner and roll at home in my pajamas.

But coloured eyeliners was a territory I was always afraid to step in. This Electric blue eyeliner has stolen my heart. I love it to bits.

The formula is so nice that I ended up picking up the same eyeliner in 2 more shades. Looking forward to try them on.img_2094img_2096

5. Colourpop Cosmetics Blush in the shade Never Been Kissed:-

Colourpop is a brand that you will totally get addicted to. I bought quite a few products from colourpop and after using them I am hooked to their website.

This Super Shock Cheeks blush is a light pink shade with orange undertones. Its perfect for fair skin tone.

From the name of the product (Never Been Kissed) to the packaging everything is just so quirky, fun and addictive.img_2019img_2032

6.  Colourpop Cosmetics Lippie Stix in the shade Leather:-

Its a no brainer that another colourpop product has made it to my favourites list.

This matte lip stick is dark purple in colour, Matte in finish and looks gorgeous.

I find the Lippie stix by colourpop to be the greatest idea ever. The packaging is just so perfect. The design of the bullet is on point (I can apply the lipstick without a mirror).

The shade Leather is a major beauty trend right now and let me tell you girlfriends, I am totally killing it 😉img_2099IMG_2101.JPGIMG_2015.JPG

7. Fresho! Signature Dehydrated Candid fruit (Fruit and Nuts):-

Its time for the snacks. Sleeping and munching are two things I do the best. I am so good at these two activities that instead of calling them hobbies I consider them my talents.

I work late into the night and was always snacking on unhealthy but very tasty stuff like potato chips, chocolates, ice creams and Cheetos. I bought this packet of dehydrated nuts and fruits to start snacking healthy and I am hooked.

They are yummy and healthy. To be honest  I do fish out the apricots and the cranberries but that is the way we humans behave 😀img_2086

That is all with my favourite stuff from the month of January. I urge you to try each and every product in this list as I  guarantee you will love them.
