Wrist Watches You Should Own in 2015

Any outfit is incomplete without the proper combination of accessories. If I ask you guys, what is your most favorite accessory of the lot you may find it difficult answer. But if I ask you what is the one accessory that you do not leave home without? I am sure, 90% of you say the WATCH! Well, that’s how much people love their watches. A watch does occupy a special place in everybody’s wardrobe for various reasons like it might be a gift from the loved ones or I would have spent a lot on owning that particular watch and so on.

We now talk about some current trends in the wrist watches. You may want to own them this year.
For Men:
Gone are the days that the watch must have the leather strap. Bling rules this year and hence the metallic frames took the market by storm. Be it a designer brand or a high end brand, the watch is made of metallic straps especially gold, black and silver alloys. Jet black is not a great choice but men can go for the gun metal to make the statement. The dial is meant to be big and the watch is to be chronographic which is super cool and vintage looking.

For Women:

Few are the options for guys but for girls, the options are numerous. This property applies when it comes to watches as well.  We girls are always on a look out for the best in everything we wear and watches does play a major role in defining our style. But for 2015, the watch you may have to own is the Rose Gold Watch. Rose gold is one gorgeous shade of gold which makes the accessory looks chic and elegant at the same time. The watch can be of any type, be it the bangle, metallic strapped watch ,a cuff style watch or a bracelet style watch. Just choose the best that suits your preference.

There are many more Elite Watches in the market and all you have to do is to hunt the best one to adorn your hand.

Spa La Vie L'occitane Hyderabad | Love Of Spa - My Experience

Whoa! I can't believe that it was already two weeks that I got my first ever body massage done and I can not get over that feeling. I am basically a very busy person and I can not really fetch so much time for my body :P but this time, I just gave an excuse as I got my week off and I wasn't having much work so, I gave a go ahead to my visit to the Spa. The place I visited for my pampering was "Spa La Vie by L'occitane"
Before going in the tour of the spa and more about my experience, first let's get to know about the Spa.
A glimpse of SPA LA VIE:
Welcome to a 10,000 sqft Mediterranean Wellness Sanctuary nestled in the heart of Jubilee Hills. Come escape to our Nature ensconced Lounge before or after your treatment, indulge in Provencal inspired rituals in our opulent treatment rooms, pamper the body and the face with our Shea from Burkina Faso and Immortelle from Corsica , enjoy well-being soaking ceremonies in free standing Bathtubs in every treatment room, feel refreshed in your private steam chamber after a revitalizing signature aromachologie massage, spend soulful moments in our oversized VIP Couple’s Suites, host an intimate Spa Soiree with your friends and embrace freshness with our Spa terrace surrounded by 20ft tall trees on one side and overlooking the Golconda fort on the other. Live the Spa life. live Spa la Vie by L'OCCITANE.
An Extension of the L’OCCITANE BRAND
Every gesture, every ingredient, every ritual is drawn from a page of the L’OCCITANE grand herbarium, a resource of hundreds of essential oils and natural ingredients. The escape begins with scent. From the moment you enter a L’OCCITANE Spa, the fragrances transport you to Provence. Prior to your treatment, you are greeted with a “Welcome Ritual”. Your experience then takes you on a true olfactory journey, sequenced at every step by soothing or energizing aromas.The voyage of the senses continues through gestures, sensorial textures, relaxing music and the herbal teas inspired by Provencal traditions. The Spa is a natural extension of our brand. In respect for authenticity, we always prefer hand-performed treatments over machines and traditional massage techniques over technologies. Just as the Provence is a unique resting place, Spa la Vie by L’OCCITANE is a sanctuary of tranquillity rejuvenating your body and soul.
My Experience:
The Spa La Vie is located at the center of the city, ie at Apollo Life Center,Jubilee Hills. From my place it took rough 15 minutes to reach the Life Center. I was greeted by the store manager, Shekar Pathak with a warm smile and took me to the lounge area. I was offered the welcome drink which is a herbal tea made of lime juice,honey,ginger. I couldn't say no and that was very refreshing.Then the masseuse came up to me and removed my shoes and gave me a pair of bamboo slippers which made me feel a relaxed and the actual spa feel like. Then Shekar gave me a form to fill that had a mini questionnaire regarding our body,skin. The questionnaire consisted of questions related to my skin type,the skincare I follow,my problem areas, sensitivity etc. I have mentioned there that I kind of get back pain at times and foot hurts too because of the excessive use of high heels. Then, he asked me to get the treatment. The masseuse escorted me to a room meant for my spa session. It was named "Angelica". As soon as she took me in, she gave me the bath robe to get changed and a haircap. The room had a closet to hang in my clothes and super cute looking jewelry box. She also read out the answers I gave in the form before and she said she would go ahead with the massage according to my preference.

As I changed into the bathrobe, she gave me a quick foot massage which made my feet more relaxed. My preference matched the service, Relaxing Aromachologie Massage. Relaxing Aromachologie is a mix of Swedish effleurage strokes, Chinese acupressure and Balinese massage techniques come together to stimulate circulation and ease tensions. I was given a good 50-60 minute massage using the products by L'Occitane. The masseuse kept asking me if I was comfortable with the pressure and strokes.I can not forget the spell of the pillow spray and I am sorry to say that I hardly remember what products she exactly used as I was too sleepy and in fact, I dozed off in between. I did take the picture of the products,so watch out.

I was taken to a whole different world and I can not ask for more. I can see myself coming here for their Immortelle Facial real soon. After the amazing spa session, the manager took me along for the Spa tour and that's when I clicked the pictures. I was also given two vouchers worth INR1000 to redeem in my next visit.Can you already see that my visit to Spa La Vie is on the cards.?
The Aromachologie Relaxing Aromachologie Massage costs INR 3250 and lasts for 60 minutes. I would say, that it is worth the money and priced well for the service.
You can know more about the Spa La Vie here 
You can follow them on their Twitter handle for regular updates @luvofspa
And you can see all the spa tour and more pictures below.

I was offered the service by the brand. However, it didn't affect my opinion.

Coco Shot

Mini Review:
LAKMÉ ABSOLUTE SCULPT STUDIO HI-DEFINITION MATTE LIPSTICKS are highly pigmented and are not drying. The shades are gorgeous. The range has covered almost all the colour families from reds,oranges,coral,pinks and brown. The price is ok but could have been a lesser price for a drugstore brand. However, you get so much product that I am sure that it would last really long.

My favorite shades are : Plum Shell, Maroon Magic and Coco Shot.

Did you try out these Lipsticks?

Add colour to your wardrobe with stylish tops

Summers are here! It is the time of the year when you find all the reasons to get the cotton clothes out of your closet and style them with your ripped jeans. Well Well Well I know we all love wearing short skirts and gowns for summers but we find ourselves reach out for some cool tops to pair with the jeans/shorts. The reasons can be many but a top is the most favorite piece of clothing for many girls.
We get to have many options when we get to shop for some cool tops. Be it the branded or thrifted, we never leave the tops that make us look good. These days, the online shopping took us by storm and I see myself buying more than required number of tops just when I noticed the rise in temperature.
When the topic comes to choose which top is the best, I am kind of totally speechless, because every girl has her own preference. I would like to point out some must have tops that every girl should own.

A white top:
A white top is a must have for every girl/woman. It can make us look classy, elegant and cute at the same time. A well fitted white top is the best when it comes to the special occasions in every girl’s routine be it a meeting, an interview or a date lol
A Lace top/A black top:

If you are in a mood to look fabulous and chic, a black top is the way to go! You can never go wrong with a lacey black top. A girl in a black top is known to be bold and confident. Why wait, go and grab a black top for yourself.
A floral top: 

Can you notice the cuteness already? Well, a floral top is the best when it comes to summer, spring, autumn and winter. Did I say all the season names? Yes, I did. I wanted to convey the fact that a floral top is always an awesome choice to wear.
These are just a few Cool Tops I have picked and you can add many other tops to your wardrobe.

I #ChooseToStart my smartphone journey with the all new Moto E

Heyy People! This post is something very special as I tried getting back to my past memory lane. The First Time craziness. Yes, I still remember almost every little thing that I did for the first time. But I cannot really say that they were the best moments. However, it is a fact that they were the best experiences of my life. The very first Barbie doll that my mom bought me for my birthday and the way I played with it in my dollhouse. I remember the first time I drove my bike without even knowing how to drive. Sounds crazy eh? I have learnt bike riding all by myself. I remember my first crush with whom I couldn't even talk for once. I remember my first phone that was gifted by my dad when I joined the college.
It was the pink Moto RAZR. It looked super duper cute and just so stylish flip phone in my tiny hands. I didn't know how to use it because all I knew about a phone is that it is meant for calling people. I was overwhelmed when I started using it. It had the fancy keypad that blinks according to the notification. It used to say,”Hello Moto!” when it turned on/off. It had the MP3,FM,a Camera and all the extravagant features that made me go crazy. I was overwhelmed with the phone’s features.

But a good change is always meant to be adapted. If a change is revolutionary to make our living better, no wonder we are ready to welcome it.
Here the change is the New Smartphone from my favorite and very first mobile phone brand,”Motorola”. It is the Moto E to make our life easier on the move.
As a blogger, I would love to own Moto E in my life. I can say a million reasons on why I need this but right now, I want to put forth 3 main things I would like to start with Moto E.
1. The 4G 
I always use the internet for the very minute things and a slow network is definitely a no no. I heard about 3G and I did experience the difference between the 3G and the normal mobile internet. 3G just ruled down. But now I get to experience 4G which is way too overwhelming to me and can’t wait to experience the fastest internet in my hands.2. Battery Life
Ever struck in traffic or had to work late and your phone just dead with no charge? Well, I kind of experience it every now and then. I totally understand that being an independent girl, I should take care of things myself especially when I am travelling alone. You never know when you may have to call up your dad.
3. Faster processor and even better quick responses
I cannot sit on just one application and wait for it to process and then start working on another app. I am a busy girl and having a phone that has the whooping 1.2GHz that works the best and gives out the quickest responses. Also when I knew that Moto E runs on the latest android version ie Lollipop(Yup, I know all the latest techy news.I am a technology freak) I couldn’t stop dreaming about it.
4. The Camera
A beauty blogger and a Selfie Addict. I only described myself and I can’t stop clicking my pictures every day. Self Obsessed I know.  Having two cameras in a single phone that means,one shot two birds. I can take my selfies, I can talk to my friends through video calling, who knows, I can become a great photographer one day because the 5mp camera can make anybody to take up the photography as a hobby.
5. The Social Media 
Human Beings are social animals and I couldn’t agree more on this. Everyday our life starts and ends with the social media. If we find something good, we share it on Facebook or Twitter. If we are frustrated and if we are in need of a platform to share our feelings, we have the social media. I think one cannot just get away without the social media. You can watch the movies whenever you feel like. You can make yourself feel better. As a blogger, I can BLOG anywhere,anytime!
6. Online Shopping/Paying Bills
We have almost all the e-commerce sites creating their own app to make the shopping easier. Just a click away and the product reaches your doorstep. Also, we now have the option of paying our electricity bills, telephone bills and every other BILL.
Last but not the LEAST!
We need not spend a bomb to own the Super cool Moto E ! How cool is that ?

Given a chance to own the Moto E , how will you #ChooseToStart ?
