It’s black and white

People tend to dress up a little bit in ol’ Little England. I may have come to the town in an old pair of jeans and a drab kurta but I changed things up for the latter part of the day when we decided to visit a few places. 

My look

I went with a chic black and white look for the evening with my outfit. This is me wearing a pair of chappals I scored from a street bazaar in India during one of my many trips there, black leggings, a black and white ethnic kurta and black shawl from India as well. The leggings are from Westside and the kurta is from one of my favourite stores, Global Desi.

The Nuwara Eliya town ain’t that big so there’s only a few places you can visit. We headed to the famous Grand Hotel for a snack and were quite surprised to find a tlounge by Dilmah on the outside veranda.

Urban setup

The menu is very much similar to that of the tlounge located at Chatham Street in Fort, Colombo 1 and so we sat down to grilled chicken sandwiches and yummilicious flavoured cups of warm tea.

Pinks today

Favourite pinks

Going for pinks today in this picture – I realized I’ve not got that many to be quite honest.

What I’ve included:

My favourite fuchsia pink shawl from Westside, India
Pink bead earrings from Odel
Rose Gold blush by L’Oréal
A bright pink studded hair pin
My black and pink cosmetic case
Night Blooming Jasmine body lotion that I absolutely LOVE
High Shine lip gloss by Elizabeth Arden in Rose Gold as well
L’Oréal Colour Riche Balm in Heavenly Berry
Wet & Wild Mega Shield lip colour in It’s A Girl
And finally an eyeshadow palette by Elizabeth Arden that includes an amazing Golden Apple shadow

Will review each makeup item in time to come 🙂

A little bit of blue

When it comes to an official press conference,  I need to dress the part of a journalist. Apart from having a chilled out morning and afternoon, I had to attend a press conference during the evening so here’s a lool at what I wore.


I’ve got on a multiple print knee-length kurta with light pink and navy blue motifs. I’ve paired it with a navy blue shawl with a few rhinestones and navy blue leggings.  All three were purchased from Westside, India. 


I’ve kept my footwear simple and comfortable because there is plenty of walking to do when I’m on an assignment.  I need to talk with the people hosting and of course chat with other media personnel too. So these are my go to sandals in baby pink I received from Malaysia. 


What handbag I carry with me is very important because not only do I need the essentials but I’ve also got to add in my trusted notebook to fit inside.  So I picked out my Jessica Simpson handbag to do the needful. 
Much love! Xoxo
