Pure Ice Nail Polish Silver Mercedes: NOTD

Hi Friends!!

I mostly do manicure on Friday.Fun way to get into the weekend mood!Recently I noticed that there are few nail polishes I haven't worn since long time.So,I decided to wear one nail polish every week.Well,I have not been very successful in it as my obsession with gold color has forced me to repeat nail polish.

This Friday, I  wanted to wear gold again but I instead went ahead with silver (I don't remember last when I wore this shade.) and Oh boy!!it looks so pretty!
I am wearing Pure Ice nail polish in Silver Mercedes. One coat is enough to give opaque finish but I have applied 3 coats because I apply three coats for any nail polish(yeah,you can say OCD!). And the coats dry up fast.

Here are the pics!Enjoy!

Empties & Repurchased Products

Hi Friends!

Christmas shopping done?!!I didn't shop much this time..mostly bought what I 'need' instead of what I 'want' :P 

Today's post is a first of its type on this blog.It is empties+repurchase='Products I love' post. I have dry and sensitive skin so if some skincare product works for me I stick with it rather than experimenting.Here are the three products I used up completely and repurchased them recently.

*All products in this post have been bought by me.
1)Neutrogena oil free eye makeup remover: this is my third bottle of it and I think I'll stick with it in future too.Inexpensive and good at its work!

               please excuse my failed attempt at french manicure :(

Black Leather Pants Outfit : OOTD

Hi friends!

Is there any particular style of clothing which you don't have in your closet but would love to have it?For me that *was* black leather pants!I didn't own one until now. Since buying pure leather pants would have hurt my wallet,I settled for faux leather pants and I love it!

Here I have worn it with graphic sweater by 3.1 Phillip Lim for target and combat boots. 

Here are the pics!enjoy!

Polka Dot Sweater and White Jeans Outfit: OOTD

Hi Friends!!

My favorite weather fall is here!!Yayy for that! I am looking forward to wearing my favorite boots,sweaters and scarves.Somehow this summer I didn't wear my white jeans at all,so I wore this outfit before summer was officially over!

How I Styled My Outfit:

I bought this polka dot yellow sweater last summer and was looking for right weather and opportunity to wear it.I styled it retro-like , polka dot sweater,white jeans and a hair bun at nape of neck. Doesn't it sound like 'madmen era weekend breakfast outing' kind outfit?!! I added a little bling with rhinestone earrings and I chose red loafers to keep it comfortable and casual. 

Here are the pics!enjoy!!

Zara Tshirt Styling Part 2 : OOTD

Hi friends!!

This is part 2 of zara tshirt styling.The part 1 post was about casual 'running errands' outfit whereas today's post has the same tshirt styled with panache.

I swapped the light shade boyfriend style jeans with fitted dark shade jeans and added blazer for more prim look. Accessorizing plays a key role in styling a outfit for example a statement necklace can transform the entire look effortlessly.Like in this outfit necklace adds details to otherwise plain jane tshirt .A rose gold watch and same handbag from the previous post finished my look.For shoes I wore converse sneakers,in my opinion,they are comfortable as well as chic!

Today's tip: Pay attention to accessorizing, it is game changer!

It was an effort trying to balance fashion and comfort but I think I did a decent job..What do you all think?Please let me know in the comment box.

Here are the pics!enjoy!

Casual 'running errands' Outfit: OOTD Part 1

Hi Friends!

I have split this outfit post in two parts as there would have been overwhelming number of pictures for one post!I have styled a simple t-shirt in two ways:

*Casual 'running errands' type outfit

*Stylish & chic outfit

In today's post,I am sharing the casual look.Actually I had to run few errands and I quickly styled an outfit which was casual and still high in fashion quotient.
I got into my comfy boyfriend style jeans,paired it with a casual neon color Zara tshirt. Quick tip: If you want your outfit to speak loudly 'in vogue' then very smartly add some neon pieces to your outfit like a tshirt,shoe,handbag or any accessory or for that matter neon lipstick and nail polish(I do this quite often)!!Believe me it works :)

Coming back to the outfit,I wore blue wedges for chic factor as heels fixes any laid back look.And to finish it off,I did a messy side braid and wore dainty gold necklace to incline the outfit more towards simple,casual look.

Please share in comment box what you think about this outfit and what is your outfit for running errands?

part 2 of this post will be up soon!

Here are the pics!enjoy!

Lipstick Love:My Favorite tangerine lipstick: MAC Lady danger swatches

Hi Friends!

Since, I became part of this beauty blogging world, bright lipsticks have become my weakness.Hence, lady danger from MAC was on my wish list!I bought it last winter(I think so) and it has become my favorite orange/tangerine shade lipstick.

There are umpteenth reviews about it in beauty blogosphere and I surely don't have anything extra to add!In my opinion,it is a a must have lipstick. Eventhough,it is matte finish, it isn't very drying and prior application of lip balm reduces the drying effect on lips.Looks good on my NC 40 skin tone.

Perfect shade for any season and occasion!! :)

Here are the pics!enjoy!

Blazer and Tangerine accessories Outfit: OOTD

Hi Friends!!

This post is in continuation of earlier post on my vacation outfits.This is what I wore on day 1 .Today I am sharing my day 2 outfit looks.This was the last day and these pictures have been clicked just before final good bye.It was short and relaxed vacation!

How I Styled My Outfit:

I am going to keep this short.Actually this was not the outfit I had planned to wear but because of the change in plan, I had to improvise.
I always carry a blazer with me on a vacation and it helped this time as I had already worn the top,blazer separately but since I had to come up with a 'new' outfit I just styled them together by adding some bright tangerine accessories & lipstick and voila..I had a 'new' outfit with repeated clothing pieces!!

Here are the pics!enjoy!

Orly Terracotta Nail Polish Swatch : NOTD

Hi Friends!!

The only reason I bought this nail paint was that I didn't have anything neon coral-ish pink in my stash and so during an evening drive I stopped at CVS and picked this shade. This my first nail paint from this brand and I love it.


*The neon coral-pink shade!
*One to two coats are enough
*Drying time is pretty good (but for an impatient person like me nothing is good enough!)
*I won't comment much on chipping cause I had used sally hansen top coat and with help of it my nail        paint lasted for good ten days with slight chipping by end of the tenth day.
*Perfect shade for summer 


*hmmm..I can't think of any!!

Here are the pics!Enjoy!

Lipstick Love: MAC Ablaze Lipstick Swatch

Hi Friends!!

MAC came out with fashion set collection sometime back(I don't remember when exactly as they there are so many collections!!) and one lipstick that caught my attention was ablaze..why? well,  I missed on MAC lipstick watch me simmer which was neon coral shade and I was kind of obsessed to get a shade as close as watch me shimmer.I bought few drug store dupes for it but was never satisfied and so when ablaze lipstick came out and beauty bloggers compared it to watch me simmer, I bought it immediately!


*love the neon coral shade!!
*it looks good on my nc 40-42 skin tone
*it is matte finish so it's stay power is good even with all drinking and eating
*minimal need for touch ups (I didn't need it)
*nice bright shade for summer

*Limited edition
*if you have dry lips you'll need to prep your lips before applying the lipstick.

ps: I tried my best to capture the accurate color of the lipstick and this is the closest I came.You can refer to maddy's post here for a better swatch picture.

Here are the pics!enjoy!

Colored Jeans and Neon Handbag Outfit:OOTD

Hi Friends!!

Spring is here in full swing and I am loving it!!Going out without jackets and boots is so liberating!
On Saturdays we like to have breakfast at our favorite breakfast places and I don't mind getting up early for it!I wore this outfit for one such Saturday breakfast outing.And this time we had our friends to give us company,more the merrier!

How I Styled My Outfit:

If you have been reading my outfit post then you know my outfits are styled at the last minute and it should have right balance of fashion(read me) and comfort(read him).This outfit is perfect example of it!

I wanted to wear something that covered my arms as it was morning and a little chilly so I picked this striped shirt.I paired it with lavender color jeans and folded the sleeves to take away the formal look from the striped shirt.And finally finished the look with neon handbag,multicolored tassel necklace and converse.

Important points I kept in mind while styling this outfit was to make sure that I bring the right shades together and the striped shirt shouldn't look formal.

I hope I achieved it.Would love to hear views in the comment box!

Here are the pics!enjoy!

Traditional Indian Outfit: OOTD

Hi Friends!!

Do you notice some not so subtle changes that I have made to blog?!! I dropped the word 'gang' from the blog's name and from it's url.Now it is called Giggle Girlie Beauty & Fashion Blog.
Do you like the changes?

I don't have any new outfit pictures but while going through the picture folder on laptop I noticed quite a few outfit pictures that I haven't posted on the blog.So, I thought to use them till I start shooting new outfits again!

How I styled My Outfit

Today's outfit is an indian traditional attire of salwar (harem pants) and Kurta (tunic).I wore this last year during fall for some festive occasion.
I love the printed statement making salwar as I can style it with different tunics.The kurta I am wearing is not the original pairing with salwar.I tried to pair solid color kurta with printed salwar.Then accessorized it with stack of pink bangles & blue earings,color blocked sandals and potli style hand bag.

Here are the pics!enjoy!

Update about blog and Outfit post: OOTD

Hi Friends!!

Happy New Year 2013!!!I know it is February but still happy new year everyone!!
I am missing in action as I am busy with few things in life so blogging has kind of taken a back seat for now..yes,now..I am not quitting blogging!
I can't promise you that I'll try to post regularly cause the truth is that it is slightly difficult right now to manage time with home,professional aspirations and blogging.
So you will get to see lesser posts but I am active on twitter and instagram with my daily
life,beauty,fashion and shopping catch me there!!

Here is a quick outfit post..we had gone for a trail back in fall.
I am skipping the how I styled my outfit section and only posting the pictures.
hope you like it:)

ps:do leave your comments as I love to hear from all of you and your support means a lot to me...thanks!:)
