Planning my christmas and new year is definitely highlight of my year. Thank god for such blissful festive winter season. Only part I wish that christmas elves would do for me: buying perfect yet budget-friendly gift for my family. Ditto, huh!!!
Thankfully, I have found 5 best places to buy super cool gifts without burning holes in thy pocket and I am willing to share my secret.
Here is my gift list curated specially for my family:
1. Forever 21 sequin beret
That is what dear Santa is getting me this year. I like to start with myself. No it’s not selfish. Its self-concerning and a part of my shopping warmup.
2. Chumbak Iphone5 case
Couldn’t find my little brother a better gift than this alcohol Iphone case for Rs.595. Chumbak has quite fascinating range of mobile cases that makes choosing only one a little difficult.
3. Goodearth Dinner set
As much as I love every product from the namesake brand, this dinner set had irresistible feeling of royalty and heritage to it. The floral motifs on the plates are inspired by the Mughal Nishaat gardens on the edge of the Dal lake in Kashmir. One can customize their set by choosing number and size of the plates and bowls. Single plate starts from Rs.1400 and goes up to Rs.3000, which is pretty worth-it kinda gift for ones home-sweet-home considering its impeccable design.
Buying a gift for my father has always been tricky for me. This visiting cardholder for just Rs.595 might just be my best find till date.
For mom, of course. Pernia’s pop-up shop is one of the few best places to buy designer stuff, even for gifting. Where else would you get such gorgeous earrings for Rs.7250 only. Don’t you just love these?!!
Just like ice-creams taste splendid in winters, white looks way more tranquil in winters. White is explicitly amicable with the mist and snow that is consistent at this time of the year, for obvious reasons. With more that fifty shades of white (like cream, snow-white, star white and off-white), one can never go overboard with whites. Isabel Marant coached masses on how to mix shades of white for a head-to-toe white look. (I swear to god, that outfit was more than perfect). Stand unrivaled by ditching your conventional little black party dress for a serene white dress with metallic spots. Or try my personal favorite, white with dash of contrasting color. Got your doubts? Go check Fendi.
Here are 5 whites no one ever got wrong:
Forever New White Dress: I bet this is the one Cinderella wore to the Prince’s ball (probably, with longer length). Sweet, huh?!
Zara Leather Moto Jacket: A biker jacket couldn’t get more cooler.
H M Faux Fur Jacket: This ones a real smart pick. Why?!! In case you missed, look again at the cozy Marc Jacob fur coat above.
Mango Pants: A pair of white trousers is cross between formal and casual trousers. Totally indispensable.
ALDO Sneaker Wedges: These babies have been in trend for all year round. One more just got added to the list.

With dark gloomy hues taking over winter wardrobe, red lips are here to save the day. Carmine, Formulae1 or rouge red, any shade to brighten up your smile this winter would add just right amount of color to those foggy days. Clinique chubby sticks recently made it to the top of my never-go-out-without list. Which one do you prefer for soaking your lips red.
P.S.: Prettiness alert!
The leaves of the tree in front of your window have already turned its color, its your hint, go pull out your wool chunk from whatever dungeon you hide them at the beginning of the spring. And, while you are at it, don’t forget to change your beauty essentials for winter. Swipe those peachy fuschia hues for grayed shades of plums and aubergines. Best part?! No more worrying about the lip gloss or after-6 shine of your lip color because matte sucked-on-ice lip painting has shattered myths that associated gleam-y lipcolors with swanky lasses. YEAH, SCREW YOU GLOSSY LIPSTICKS!
Oh C’Mon! Lose those summery pinks already!
