Guest Post: Adding Subtle Glitter to Outfits!

Hello ladies!

Today, I bring you a guest post from the online apparel store, Indiarush! Indiarush has to share something interesting about wearing glitter. Here goes! 🙂

If you love creativity, this blog post will be very helpful to you! Here are some new tricks of adding glam and glitter to your wardrobe to make it party ready like never before!

These little tricks will not only save the money that you would have to invest in buying expensive clothes for yourself, but at the same time will also increase your creativity. So, go on and design something new for yourself with the following tricks:

  1. Take up the outfit that you wish to transform and give it a nice little makeover by adding sequined patch of yoke or patti on its sleeves. Even this minute change will enhance the entire appeal of your ensemble and will make it appear new! And if you wish, you can even put the sequined patch on the hemline.
  1. If you do not wish to work hard, you could play it a bit smart! You can go for a dupatta with beautiful sequins booti or motif work with a plain lehenga or salwar suit that you already have. This way, you can smoothly achieve a party ready look without much effort!
  1. While dealing with clothes that have metallic textures and colors, you must carefully choose a contrast of neutral colours like beige, cream, black and grey to come up with the best look! This way, you will be able to balance out a subtle yet shimmery appearance for yourself! You can also do this experiment with your sarees, too!
  1. Go for muted tones of sequin work on garments for getting the glitz and glam in a subtle manner. Always remember that too much glitter and sequins will spoil the ensemble!

I hope this post was helpful to you girls. I’m gonna try out these DIY myself! 😀

Until next time, love from Shruti  ❤

Premium Laundry Services Are Here!

Hello, my dear readers!

How many of you are fussy about your laundry like me? 😛

I always prefer washing my clothes by hand, with a gentle liquid detergent. I don’t even trust washing machines to do the job well! But with a hectic job, it’s tough to always find time for the chore; my clothes end up piling up 😦

Recently, I learnt about a new laundry service called Mink.

I received the offer to get any three items laundered by Mink in exchange for an honest review. I am excited to share my experience with you guys 😀

So, I sent across an AND dress, a prized sari (raw silk with zari work) of mine and a precious rug which had gotten stained. I forgot to take pictures of the dress and sari before I sent it to the Mink team but I remembered to click the carpet 😛

Look at that patch on top, off-centre. I wanted this cleaned so I could store it properly, but I couldn’t figure out where or when to get it cleaned. Mink’s timing couldn’t have been better! 😀

So, the process began. The pickup was quite smooth and efficient. An executive from Mink collected my items and gave me a receipt.IMG_20151016_212057943

After 3 days – which I felt was a long wait – I received a call informing me that my stuff was ready to be delivered. The coordination was very efficient! I got held up at work and the Mink executive was gracious enough to delay his visit for my convenience 🙂

I was pleasantly surprised when I received my laundered stuff neatly folded and presented in Mink’s branded packaging ❤

I’ll just sum up by saying that these premium laundry services seem like a boon. There are many other like me, who are very particular about their clothes but are not able to give it time. With Mink’s efficient pickup-and-drop facility and smooth communication, we can goodbye to our laundry hassles! 😎
