Cupcake Beauty on Halloween !

I dressed up as Cupcake this Halloween which also happened to be my birthday ! FYI the headband has a cupcake on it but I am wearing  the wrong side in front ! Dammit !

  • I bought my costume from Amazon US and they shipped to Japan in freaking 2 days at very nominal rates. I also ordered a couple more things to divide the shipping costs which totalled to only $25 . I like Leg Avenue Costumes for Halloween , but they are sold at 3-4 times the price here, so being able to buy it from Amazon US was totally amazing!
  • I wanted to do something sexy, colorful and cute and I am happy with how the look turned out to be . I did pink eyebrows and pink face contouring for the first time , and even though I was very skeptical about doing it initially, it does indeed compliment the whole look. The pink liner pencil (Bourjois 58 Pink About you) made it super easy to color my brows. 
  • To add some more dazzle, I added a lot of pink and blue glitter on the face, and silver and golden chunky glitter on neck and shoulders. A glitter glue is imperative to make the glitter stick . I used Too Faced Glitter Glue. You can use eyelash glue as well. 
  • For the Colors to look so pigmented and vibrant , I thank NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk . It works as a perfect base and makes my eyes like a blank white canvas, where I can paint anything I want.

Trend highlight : Midi dress


Lake Toya, Hokkaido
Dress: Asos /  Aviators : Rayban /
On my recent trip to Hokkaido, we went Fruit Picking and it was such an amazing experience.Getting a chance to pick fresh fruits such as Apple, Pear , Plums and Grapes in the midst of the nature was phenomenal.

I wore a super feminine midi dress from Asos.com. Midi's have become ubiquitous , with almost all stores selling them. But do they look dowdy or fashion forward is for you to decide.

Outift of the Day : Borrowed from the Boys

Top: Forever 21 / Shorts: Bershka / Jacket : Dresslink / Bag: Michael Kors / Aviators: Rayban /
Ring : Swarovski/ Shoes : HnM/
I have always been more inclined towards the feminine ways of dressing, such as body-con dresses and  high heels with dazzling accessories , but can't be wearing those when I am on a Road trip to Japan's countryside. These pictures are from Asahikawa Zoo in Hokkaido , Japan. What I wear there has to be super comfortable and no heels for sure . But honestly , I don't like to compromise style for comfort . Lately, I have been loving the laidback tomboyish style of dressing. It is so effortlessly chic yet comfortable, so you don't mind walking for hours. 

I have been obsessed with my new denim boyfriend jacket from dresslink.com. I have mixed reviews on that website and I will be doing a detailed review in another post. But if you want to buy this jacket click here . 

It is a bright sunny Saturday afternoon here in Tokyo. How do you guys usually spend your Saturdays? I would be meeting a bunch of friends for dinner. I am so looking forward to the next week. There is Halloween , my Birthday and Diwali to celebrate!  XOXO !

Daniel Wellington Watch & OOTD


Watch : Daniel Wellington / Bag: Michael Kors / Dress : Zars / Earrings : Swarovski 
Lately I have been obsessing over watches with big dials , even though if there were to be a contest for people with the thinnest wrist, I would win it hands down!  For a long time, I would tell myself to wear watches with petite dials and the ones with big dials are not made for me. Haa! I confined myself to such idiotic and ignorant rules , and then came the moment of  enlightenment when I realised how totally amazing the big dials look . Not only that, they are the IN thing now! 

I love my new Daniel Wellington Watch , which is an European brand and they ship worldwide. This classic timeless beauty with a minimalistic design and a vintage vibe is a perfect addition to my collection of watches. You can buy it here

Would love to hear what you all think.
