What to carry in your Trousseau?

Hello my pretty bride!

So here’s what I jotted down when the time came to pack my bags, everything that is absolutely essential in the immediate time is what I carried.

Top 5 things you must have in your trousseau:

1.Work out wear!

Get new work out wear to stay fit, trust me wedding prep is just the beginning you need a lot of ME time post marriage.

2.Regular Wear:

You won’t feel like wearing something old post marriage, get new outfits apart from your party wear selection. There will be a lot of casual brunches, dinners and outings with new family members or friends to go for.

3.Shoes:

Footwear is essential, no outfit is complete without the perfect footwear. Get some for regular days, party wear and  workout.

4.Make up:

Invest in good make up products, you will need this during your honeymoon, post marriage parties and small celebrations to look fresh and your gorgeous self.

5.Skin & Hair Care Products:

Set a skin and hair care regime, get products to carry there with you as this is the first thing we forget even on our travel journey.

 

Essentially get everything you would normally own in your house and make your new house feel just like HOME.

 

What else did you carry in your trousseau? Tell us in the comments below!

Well look no further we at WabiSabi have put together the various ways you can style your ripped jeans from casual to formal. So you can wear them everywhere!

2. For the cool office look. Style your light blue denims with a dark blazer and a casual tee. This look works amazing especially for meetings!

3. If blazers aren’t your thing then you can wear a nice striped shirt with a cardigan on top.

4. Sometimes a long duster jacket just adds the right amount of Oomph to your outfit!  Choose a bright or solid loud colour this works amazingly well!

5. To give your denims a sexy look you can add lace to them.

Nespresso On!

We got gifted a Nespresso Machine for our birthday!!!!
You all know that we are obsessed with coffee and this birthday gift was the best ever, so we decided to review it.

The machine we got is the CITIZ&MILK CHERRY RED COFFEE MACHINE, it has an integrated milk frother and it is an absolute dream! We assembled it in 10 mins and next we were deciding what to have.

Plus Point:
Super EASY to use and you can make a variety of different coffees with it.

T​he machine comes with pods​ so we had a variety of different flavours to choose from.
​In addition they sent us the Nespresso Limited Edition Iced Capsules; Intenso on Ice!!​ *ice ice baby*
So with this machine you can either make your cuppa with a espresso (single shot) or a lungo (double shot), the coffee though is hot when its poured from the machine.
The frother is amazing, it has demarkations to tell you how much milk to pour for a latte or for a capuccino and it heats the milk or it can cool it based on your requirement. (Our team loves the cold one though, boss you the best!)
​We each tried a coffee,
Hot ‘Livanto’ capuccino flavour:
​This is the caramel flavour so it is a little sweet. The blend of Central and South American Arabicas is medium roast and it brings out a very balanced flavour. It isn’t too strong and has that yummy freshly brewed smell!
Intenso On Ice!
This was a bit strong for my taste but it was appreciated by the rest of the team. The Iced coffee though was very smooth and we added some frothed milk to the mix.
Coffee ice on
To keep your machine clean ensure you buy the Descaling Kit and use it after every 100 pods to clean the machine.
Other than that it easy to maintain you just need to wash the frother and the pod despenser whenever you use it.
​And to store all the pods I have bought the ​Touch Sleeve Dispenser!
Which coffee do you prefer? Tell us in the comments below!

Bag Organisation: Top 4 Tips & Tricks

Hello bag addicts!
If you are anything like me then your entire world is in your bag and if that is the case
that means, it’s most often messy cramped and feels like it weighs a ton; in addition it gets dirtier too fast.
So I was going through the same thing. But then,  I decided that I am going to address this head on!
Before I list my Top 4 Tips & Tricks down here’s a bit about the type of bags and things I carry:
– Totes or large bags
– Everything from chapsticks to hair brushes, make up, books and pens for meetings, money perfume, coffee cup (YASS!), loose change, keys, jewellery, sanitizer, chewing gum, headphones, cellphone, charger, sunglasses etc. my essentials.

If the above is also what you carry in your bag then below are my Top 4 Tips & Tricks to sort our ever messy bag:
1. You need to separate and group your items into categories:
This helps you group them together and put them into various pouches, this way you can access them easily.
2. Separate your essentials:
I have a wallet in which I keep cash and coins and in a separate card holder I have essentials like my Id proof that is easily visible so I don’t have to keep removing it and thus in turn loosing it. I also keep my Starbucks card in the card holder for easy access. Don’t forget to keep a bit of emergency cash in it as it is so easy to just shift that into a small bag for the night.
3. Ensure you have compartmentalised wallet.
Even though we have segregated the id proof and Starbucks card into the card holder a compartmentalised wallet helps organise your cash/ coins and cards effectively to ensure that you find whatever you want whenever you require it.
4. Keep your makeup separate:
Here’s what happened, when I thought of segregating my stuff in pouches I got a pouch which stored my basic regular makeup, cards as well as house keys. A wallet which had my cash, important credit card/debit card etc.
Disaster struck, my lip gloss leaked and my Starbucks card, house keys were completely covered in icky yucky shiny gloss.
Keep two pouches or get a pouch which has compartments inside for you to separate stuff.
We love amazon collection of pouches!
So what do we always say? Have more tips, tell us in the comments below!

The Face Shop: Mung Bean Face Mask

Hello Gorgeous!

As promised here is our review for the face shop face mask, I have 14 of these which means there are a variety of reviews coming your way soon.

What does the brand promise?

The Mungo Bean Real Nature Face Mask leaves skin clear and radiant. In just a couple of minutes, it helps eliminate impurities that clog your pores, to leave your skin dazzling.

22070000150_800x854

 

What it delivers?

So my dehydrated skin wanted something extra to feel fresh and breath, I put this mask on for 20 mins and voila!

It is a bit messy to remove this mask from the packaging, very easy to tear if you have nails like mine, it has a very mild fragrance nothing that will irritate your nose.

Once you manage to put the mask on and relax it start drying up and becoming a part of your skin, no liquid drops on anything after application. Removing it is easy too, unlike the disaster charcoal mask videos.

Your skin feels fresh and quiet smooth post this mask, I would not recommend applying one pack daily though as it spoils your natural skin texture.

Which face mask should we review next? Aloe Vera or Avocado?

3. Belt It Up: No no no, less is more! Ignore the old gordy big buckle belts and go for a simple belt and make heads turn.

I wore the same top in a nude colour for a casual meeting and had a lot of head turns, plus the long sleeves make you feel like a fairy!

9. Apple Red or Orange Lips: Simple outfit with a lipstick as your accessory!
