New buys from ALKE!

There were newbies out by ALKEΒ a couple of weeks ago and I couldn’t help myself…. so I bought three new necklaces πŸ˜€

What I really like about this handmade jewellery site is that the items can be personalised, making them one of a kind. The owner is a close friend of mine which also makes things a lot easier for me. I have been finding it difficult to get long length necklaces for myself and so she customised a few pieces to suit my taste. Take a look!

All three beautiful pieces costed me a total of Rs. 1,700 which is pretty darn decent. Surprisingly, my husband (who does not like costume jewellery and anything of that sort) loves all three of these pieces as well (yay me :D).

Romantic bohemian – tips + trends

I’m back after a two week hiatus to India! I gotta say, it was quite an amazing experience traveling from one city to another and I’ve so many wonderful pictures to share with all you, but of course I’ll leave that for another post. Right now I’m going to be talking about another spring trend I’ve seen pop up literally everywhere including India and right here at home in Sri Lanka and that is the romantic bohemian trends.

I find that this particular trend is somewhat a fusion of prints and textures and that’s something I like a lot. My closet and clothing is pretty much a combination of 80% prints and textures so yeah..!

I find that loose tops are a great part of a bohemian look and the white top with blue embroidery work is something I bought myself while shopping in India at one of my favourite stores in Global Desi. It’s actually kind of a long dress with an asymmetrical bottom which I absolutely love. What makes this trend so special and unique is that you can mix and match items you probably already own in your closet and just make it work. A baggy long tee can be used to create a bohemian look if you just team it up with some long beaded necklaces, a tassle handbag and perhaps a hair adornment to complete it. All you gotta do is make it work!

Bold and bright colours are a must as you can see, so dig in deep in your closet for the brightest items of clothing you’ve got. Let’s also not forget the accessories. Accessories make such a huge difference when paired well with an outfit so choose yours wisely to complete your romantic bohemian look.

When it comes to makeup, I think it’s best to keep a subtle look because you’ve already got a lot going on when it comes to your outfit but occasionally I suppose if you keep things light, then you could amp up your makeup.

Smokey eyes and eyeliners in bright bold colours are a huge rave so think out of the box when playing with your makeup. Your nails can be given the same kind of treatment; you can play with pastel shades or go with bright hues.

Funky new shoes!

I’ve been going insane this month with all the little sales and discounts at stores. This was an impulsive buy I tell you, but a good one at that πŸ˜›

My mum wanted to go for this seasonal sale at the convention centre in town and so I tagged along not wanting her to go by myself. Well, safe to say the sale was a bit of a bummer except for the fact that these shoes were the only thing that caught my eye and my wallet. They costed me just Rs. 1,200 which I must say was a bargain for such a cute and funky pair of shoes. I absolutely love the detail at the front and the back is open so it’s an easy to wear pair.

What’d you think? πŸ˜€
