How to: Rainbow Cake

Things you'l need:
  • Flour- 2 cups
  • Ground sugar- i cup
  • Butter-1/2 cup
  • Eggs- 3
  • Vanilla essence- 1 tbspn. 
  • Baking powder- 3/4 of a teaspoon
  • Food colours
  • Milk- 1/2 a cup.
Mix in all the above ingredients inn a mixing bowl to get a smooth batter. Now, divide the batter in different bowls. (You can use as many colors u want. I'v used 5). Add the food colors into the separated batter to get something like this

Now line your baking plate with butter paper and pour in the batter one by one. Make sure that you pour in the batter on on top of the other so that the previous color spreads out. Do that until the first color u poured in touches the side of the plate. And it should look something like this 

Preheat the microwave to 200 degree Celsius and bake it for about 10 minutes. Let it cool down and voila!

So after the great response i got for the rainbow cake earlier i had to do this tutorial post. Thanks for the encouragement everyone.! :). This is such an easy recipe for a complicated looking cake like this. Very easy and anyone can try it.
Also, i'm moving to Mumbai. Leaving tomorrow and boy am i overwhelmed? I'm going to miss home so much. It sucks. :( But on a better note- more shopping options.! :D next post will be from the city. See you there.! :)

I'm alive

So this post is to let you all know that i'm still alive and not really kicking(i'l get there)..
 Caught up with a lot of things lately. Personal crises i cant seem to get over with. Ahh Life. You never know what it brings your way. But for one thing i know,it sometimes makes you wander into a random shop and spot a perfect bag that doubles as a camera bag. Woot! :D
 Now i can carry my rather bulky camera in style. :)

Love the tassels and gold details.

Have a great weekend everyone.!

Back in Black

With a little gold here and there. When was the last time i posted.? Well the the post title is quite apt and yus I'm back wearing all black.(You dont say?)
I've realized, taking pictures for the blog is a lot harder than well,starting the blog. Which explains my lack of posts. Finding a location,getting someone to take your pictures and sometimes not even being able to carry the camera around(See the size of my bag). result:nothing to post. :\
Got my brother to take these pictures(Forcefully of course)before i left the house.  
Really into shirts and sheer as of now. :D

I'v hated gold jewellery for as long as i can remember. I was always more of a silver person. Oh but how i contradict myself. :P

Leopard print. I'v already spoken about my obsession with this print here.

All in all,this outfit pretty much defines my style. Comfort chic. Is that even a term? Errm.. but yea its the comfort that i look for in my clothing. The shirt being my comfort element here. I believe that you could be dresses in the fanciest of clothes but if you're not comfortable wearing them its just.. Bleh. Aaanndd also, how easily can this outfit be dressed up.? Throw in a fitting blazer with a pair of heels and voila a whole different dressed up look. I'm thinking of ways to style this outfit for the dressed up look while i write this. Next post maybe.? :D

Trying to do the I'm walking picture and failing miserably. Haha.

Fighting them wind.

Shirt-self tailored; jeggings-; Flats- Carlton London;
Bag- Westside; Rings-;
Shades-Vintage; Neck piece- Bombay.

Feel free to tell me what you think about the post.! :)
Will be back with a new post. Soon.  
Take care and have a great week y'all. 

P.S: This post is submitted as INFB Remix-Sheer entry.

Brown Delight

Hi lovely readers! Though this blog is about style and fashion, it will also encompass the things that i like other than clothes and shoes. This post will show you what.
As you can see, I'm quite a foodie. Stayed home today and had nothing better to do so i baked.! I'm no pro at it though. I only bake or cook for my own taste buds. :D
I had recently learnt how to bake walnut brownie and thought I'd share it with you. Its a really simple recipe and takes less than half an hour to bake. So anyone who's not really into baking but wants to try because lets admit it, we cant always run to Cafe coffee day for those sinful brownies, can try this. Really simple and easy. :)

Ingredients you'll need:
  1. Flour- 1 cup
  2. Cocoa powder- 1/2 a cup
  3. Eggs- 3
  4. Baking powder- 3/4th of a teaspoon
  5. Vanilla essence- 2 teaspoons
  6. Yogurt- 1/2 a cup
  7. Ground sugar- 1 cup
  8. Butter- 4 tablespoons.
  9. Walnuts- a handful

Melt the butter and add the ground sugar to it. Next, add the flour and the cocoa powder followed by the eggs,baking powder,vanilla essence and yogurt. Like this.
 Basically theres no step by step method to follow here.. Yeah. Culinary advice from the clumsy cook. :P Just add in all of the ingredients to get a smooth chocolaty batter that looks something like this 
Add the walnuts. 

Preheat the microwave to 220 degree Celsius and bake it for about 7 mins. 
Et voila. So simple and easy and so damn yummy. :D 
Try it.! :)

Shoes make me go weak in the knees. 
Last week when i was going through some online shops i came across these green platform shoes. It looked great. Especially the color. And when i looked at the price i was sold.! Rs.999($20 approx) people. Score.! Got them immediately and they arrived the day before yesterday. Its a wee bit small for me but i can manage. :D
The gold collar necklace was a gift from a friend from Mumbai. Gosh, i want to move there. If not for anything else,Shopping. It nearly impossible to find things like these here in Shillong. One of the reasons why i almost always shop online. 

Deepika Padukone was on the cover of vogue this month and does she look hot or what.?  I had recently discovered this Indian online shop that stocked brands like Aldo,Mango and Nine West. I was ecstatic of course since Shillong has none of those brands. Heck, we don't even have a mall here. Benetton is what we have closest to nice brands. Sucks i know. Anywho,I browsed through all the shoes and settled for a pair Aldo wedges. Went to checkout. Typed in my area code. "Cannot ship to this address.Pin code is not serviceable". Where do i live in? Narnia? :\ 
So disappointed.;; Gold collar-Mumbai.
Aaand this ring. I haven't quite figured what the animal is. The upper half looks like a cat(i think) and the bottom half looks like a snake. Haha. Weird. What do you think it is.?
Have a great weekend y'all.

Combat Baby.

Apologies for this delayed post.! I know i was supposed to do the outfit post with this DIY-ed shirt long time back. The thing is, Shillong's weather has not been so cooperative past few days. The rain, wetness and the cold didn't really allow me to wear this shirt without a jacket covering it. These pictures were taken after a heavy rainfall when the sun was shining just a little too much. So pardon me squinting in few of the pics. :)          

Wore the shirt with black jeggings. Its the same one that i wore here but black. (Told you they're super comfortable!) and black combat boots that were not only for the style but the utility. Its my rainy day shoes. Though it was sunny, you just cannot trust the weather here.

So thats it for today.! Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Will be back with a new post soon.:)

Rainy day randoms.

Lets talk about the weather yea.? I can be lame sometimes. Bear with me. :) Shillong is known to have all the four seasons in one day. Believe me, I've seen/experienced it. Lately though, its only been raining. Its the monsoon season so i'm not surprised but its actually cold. I don't know about others but i sure did feel the chill.(Actually had to wear one of my winter jackets today). Its July. Not supposed to be cold. But again, its Shillong. Not that i'm complaining. Staying in my warm bed with my laptop in front of me while the rain pours outside just seems the perfect thing to do but its stopping me from doing outfit posts to keep this blog going. But i did manage to get out of the house to run some errand.Met up with the bf for coffee and took some pics with my new cam. :) So here are some random pics of me trying to look cute with my poofy eyes. :P

And after 2 and a half minutes. This. :P

Have a good week y'all. Its pouring outside while i write this. Rain outside+warm bed = Bliss.
I'm off. Be back soon. :)

DIY: Sequined Peter Pan Collar

Hello lovely people.! I present to you my first DIY post.! I had finished this sometime back but got around to posting it only today because i just got my new camera. Wooot! Now that i have my own camera, i will post often i.e if my laziness doesn't take over me.  :P

Ive been into peter pan collars a lot lately and got this lovely cobalt blue one tailored. You must have noticed the collar is not exactly peter pan-ish. My tailor screwed up that part. Nonetheless,it looks nice. So to jazz it up a little got sequins onto the collar to make the not-so-peter-pan collar stand out. It was quite a tedious task getting those sequins on and took me around 3 days to complete. Totally worth it.! I will do an outfit post with it soon to show you what it looks like when worn. 
Be back soon. :)

Lace top-Gangtok; Shirt-self tailored; shoes-Toes via; Bag-gifted

Hellos lovely people.! I'm so sorry for the lack of posts these past few days (weeks?). My friend who takes my pictures got a job and now hardly has time to shoot with me. BooHoo.! Hence, the lack of posts. 

I remember being obsessed with purple in school days. It was my FAVORITE color. Guess what.? Still is. :P Something about purple we girls cant get enough of, no? So the moment i saw these purple jeggings i had to get them. Its not the usual jegging material but corduroys. Pretty  Very comfy. :) I could wear them all the time.!
My second obsession was is Leopard prints. It was around October last year that this obsession started. I wanted to wear a leopard print dress for a college event. And so the hunt for leopards started(no pun there). And to this day i'v collected everything leopard. Shirts,scarves,shoes,bag,coat-you name it. EXCEPT for pants. They're the only things missing from my leopard collection. But i haven't given up yet. :D 

Currently working on some DIYs. Post will follow as soon as its done. So stay tuned ladies.
Till then, Happy weekends.!
