DIY Jeans Inspired by GUCCI

Image
As I promised, I come back with another DIY, here is my new DIY project.
I always like doing embroidery. I have made so many embroidery projects, sometimes in college (Fashion Designing), sometimes as a hobby, but I just love doing it.
As a designing student, I have learned so many different types of stitches, some basics, some traditional, but the very basic stitches I learned from my mom.
My mom is the only one who made me an embroidery person. I learned some basic hand embroidery stitches then I did a short-term course in machine embroidery at the age of 13.
My passion for embroidery made me a good student in the same subject during my graduation.
As grew up, I stopped doing these things and got busy with other works.
This summer vacation, when I had free time and I got bored, I thought to do something I was good at.
I realized that I have some bottoms I am really bored with, so I decided to give them a new look.  I first chose my shorts and then my light blue denim by Recap,

DIY Rakhi, Raksha Bandhan Special

Image
The relationship between a Brother and sister is beyond the word, but in India, we celebrate it as Raksha Bandhan.
On Raksha Bandhan, a sister ties a Rakhi on her brother's wrist, with the return of this sacred knot, she gets a lifetime promise from his brother to be protected. The Raksha Bandhan festival is celebrated on the full-moon day of August.
In Japan, we can's find Rakhi so I made it myself because I think if you can't find something just DO IT YOURSELF.
Tying the red thread with beautiful pearl and stones, it is very easy to make but looks elegant.


On this Raksha Bandhan, I wish you all sister and brother, Happy Raksha Bandhan.

Love❤️

Miyajima Island, Itsukushima Shrine, Torri Gate, Pagoda, Mount Misen

Image
Miyajima island, number one tourist place near Hiroshima, and over the top ranking place to visit in Japan, famous for Torri gate, shrine, deers and street food. There are so many things you can do in Miyajima.
You can reach Miyajima island by ferry, in front of the ferry station you can find the Cat & owl cafe, the attraction of Miyajima starts with this cafe, they have three types of animals section, cats, dogs, and owl. The cafe is damn cute, you can enjoy each cafe for half an hour while you can play with cute animals.

Itsukushima Shrine and Torri Gate The O-Tori gate is the best sign of Miyajima Island. It looks amazing while floating in the water with 16 meters (around) in height. Basically, you can see the Tori gate anywhere in Japan, but this Torri gate at Miyajima reflects the structure of Itsukushima Shrine. It has made with wood and the body is coated with vermilion lacquer.
Itsukushima Shrine is one of the beautiful and the largest shrines of Japan. Because it floats …

Pantene Pro-V Moist Smooth Care

Pantene has always suited my hair, no matter which shampoo or conditioner from Pantene I am using, it always makes my hair much healthier. Today I am talking about the new Pantene Pro-V Moist Smooth Care.

Pantene Pro-V Moist Smooth care is the new summer edition from Pantene. It is basically a conditioning treatment from Pantene Japan.

 It is a UV Damage repair treatment, it will protect your hair from the sun in the summer along with making your hair soft and smooth. This is the first hair treatment I have ever used which has UV protection.

How To Use It Wash your hair with your regular shampoo and use your regular conditioner before using it (you can also skip the conditioning).
Now take a required amount of it (depends on the length of your hair) and spread it on your palms and apply gently on your hair from the root to the end. Massage your hair gently and wash with normal water.
It will make your hair extra smooth and soft and also protect it from the ultraviolet radiation in the…

Calvin Klein One Red For Her, Newly Added in My Collection,

Image
I am not a deodorant person, I am a perfume person and I love to keep some quality perfumes in my collection. I was using Nike Women Perfume, which has a really light casual fragrance. A few months ago I bought Rose De Courreges, which has a very girly rose scent (still using and love it ). Now here's newly added in my collection Calvin Klein, this high-end branded scent gives a very classy touch to my wardrobe.

Here I am going to talk about the newest addition to my wardrobe CK One Red For Her

The packaging is very basic like other Calvin Klein Perfumes packaging, simple and classy. It comes in a crystal bottle with small red cap, it doesn't have a cap for regular use, it only has the spray lid so you don't have to open it up every time you need to use it. Just spray the scent and you ready to go.
One thing I would like to mention that if you are not using it for a long time, please close it with the bottle cap, not with the spray lid so the perfume can be safe for a lon…

Rose Gold Obsession

Image
I have always been a big fan of Black color. If you will see my old pictures on Facebook, you will find all my pictures in Black clothes. I always loved black for my clothing.
Well, things Changed, I changed and I became obsessed with Rose Gold. Not only for clothing but for anything I just love the color and its different shades (including peach and light pink). From the curtain to door mate, all I have in the peach shade, from my coffee mug to water bottle all I have in a monochrome of peach and rose gold. From my mobile phone (iPhone 7 Plus) to my wallet, all I have in rose gold. All I want to say that I am just crazy about the monochrome shades of Rose gold and I just love these shades. I am as crazy for these shades as my close one started buying me (or gifting me) stuff in these shades only, they know very well that if they will buy me these shades, I would love it the most. Recently I bought this beautiful rose gold dress and these flats from H&M on a big sale (70% off sum…

MAC SO CHAUD Lipstick and Brushstroke Eye Liner

Image
Until I  was in India, I was a big fan of Lakme cosmetics, since I am in Japan Lakme has been replaced by MAC cosmetics in my makeup essentials and I am being a big fan of MAC products. I have not bought so many of them yet, but slowly buying all my favorite stuff which I use the most.

Last month I went to the MAC counter to buy a few lipsticks shades (yes few because Lipstick is my favorite makeup essential) and I tried so many different shades and different types of it but I could not finalize any of them.
SO CHAUD LIPSTICK Just a moment before leaving the counter, I randomly saw this shade and grabbed it like this is the last piece of MAC lipsticks ;). As I was looking for a matte type pop color and I also didn't want to go with red because I already have red shades, so I loved this one. It was the same as I expected and was looking for.

It is a very pretty orange color which pops up my face even when I am not wearing any other makeup, it looks great. It is a matte lipstick, bu…

August 6, Anniversary of Bombing 1945, Hiroshima

Image
We all know about the Atomic Bomb blast in Japan 1945. It was a horrible time for Japan, we cannot even imagine. The place where the Atomic bomb was dropped, called Atomic bomb dome (Gen Baku dome in Japanese) and the area around the dome called the Peace Memorial Park.
Many people gather at The Atomic Bomb Dome, Every year on August 6th. People remember this day as an anniversary of the bombing and they pray for peace.

In the morning at 8:15(the time of bombing) the peace alarm rings in the entire city. The Prime Minister and Mayor of Hiroshima reads a special peace message. Japanese people, including school and college students, perform on so many cultural programs. People who lost their family members in the blast, with their eyes fill with tears, pray for the peace of their loved one.





The statue in the peace park is always decorated with thousands of colorful crans.


In the evening people lit the Peace Message Floating lantern in the river next to the Atomic Bomb Dome. Anyone can …

Rose de Courreges Perfume

Image
Rose de Courreges, a brand from Paris Rose De Courreges


Around the summer in India, the temperature gets around 45-50 (damn hot). Being an Indian, I am very much friendly with hot weathers, but Japan is a 90% humid country in summer, here I feel like my skin is burning when the sun comes upon the head.

In that case, we need 24-hour air condition and some fresh fragrances. This tiny, cute bottle of perfume makes me feel fresh whole day.

I have this girly bottle for the last four months, and I am using it every single day. It has a light scent of rose.
It smells like a beautiful, confident woman crossing the street next to you.

The bottle of this perfume is very small, cute and travel-friendly
It makes me feel holding a fresh rose bouquet with some nice combination.
It is a budget-friendly perfume
Comes in various sizes so you can choose as per your requirement.
Stays for a very long time.
