Maybelline Color Show polish

Sweet Sunshine

Got one Maybelline Colour Show nail polish as a gift over the weekend and I have been obsessed with it ever since! The shade I got is in Sweet Sunshine #405 and it’s a super bright and funky yellow. I’ve got nothing remotely even close to this shade in my nail polish collection and yet somehow I love this so much. Just the look of it on my nails makes me happy :D. As for the application, I had to use two coats to get a good coverage. ..One coat was too streaky. I love the packaging as well, its user friendly and a nice sizable quantity of polish. The brush applicator works really well on the nails for a good coverage as well and overall I think these type of polishes are a great gift idea. It certainly made my day 🙂

Nine West cross body bag

I thought I’d change my daily handbag to something casual and simple. I rummaged through my bags and pulled out this yellow beauty. It’s a Nine West cross body bag and I know it’s not going to hold everything I take with me on a daily basis but…. I’m going to try!

Look forward to my next post – my first What’s In My Bag 🙂

Hello yellow

Is it just me or is there a whole lot of yellow going around at this time of the year? I’m not feeling the colour as I did a few months back but thats probably because in my country we don’t have seasons 😛 My love for colours are based on whims and moods so if anyone were to ask me what my favourite colour is ten times in ten months, they’d probably get ten different answers!

I like it that way but let’s not deviate from this flourishing yellow business that’s going on. March this year also saw many local and foreign fashion designers showcase designs that were in yellow during Colombo Fashion Week.

I love the way the colour was incorporated into multi coloured outfits and also used to emphasis the complete look like in the third picture above from the left.

Men in Yellow

Men’s outfits also took a yellow turn as you can see. I definitely liked what I saw and think it’s something that can be well incorporated into our daily wear as well.

It’s not so easy to take pictures of people in my country without a true purpose and explaining my reasons behind blogging wouldn’t often work either so I’ve looked up some simple ways to yellow style from fashionable people around the world:

Power to yellow

A simply flowy skirt can easily be paired with a tee or a dress can be accessorised with other bold colours like red. You can also choose to mix prints and since florals are still in, work with it.

A casual day clutch can pump up a look with ease and make you stand out. Bold clutches like these are definite must haves. If you’re not the type to reveal your arms, go for a soft cardigan like the one shown in the above picture. 

It’s really as easy as it looks, as long as you keep it simple. A yellow ethnic kurta or chiffon blouse can be paired with some fancy black pants or beige straight cut jeans. Keep your other accessories neutral so as to not overpower the complete look.

Have a great day! ♡
