I spy with my keen eye- Jaqueline Fernandez

We're extremely proud of this young Sr Lankan lass who's gorgeous and is in the verge of becoming one of the most powerful faces of Bollywood. I just have to post some of her pictures I came across. She effortlessly pulls off anything she wears and most of all she looks extremely breathtaking in Indian wear.

Wood Pallets are FUN!

My husband is a design freak. He loves designing stuff. He does graphic design for a living but he has a good taste and can design anything else in style. Lately he has been crazy over wood pallets! he really wanted to make some furniture for the house with them. I was also thrilled with the idea, anyway we both didn't want to spend much on furniture so the idea seemed perfect. 

So he went all over the place and got some wood pallets done from a carpenter and bought some from a local supplier, polished them ourselves and painted them with white wood paint.

Wood pallets painted by us
Our first project was making this cute coffee table. Look it has wheels too! We use this table to eat and to sit around and play board games with friends. Check out the wine bottle DIY too. They look great and easy to make. 

Coffee table. We don't have chairs, so if you are coming home, please be ready to sit on the floor :)


Our second project was making a bed for us. Our new bought mattress was lying on the floor for two whole months until we got the wood pallets ready. This is how the bed looked when it's done. We bought some cushions to decorate it.

The final look

That's my gorgeous cat Marshmellow. He behaves like a prince and sometimes we wonder if we are living in his house!

The wall hanging was also designed by us. It goes really well with the arrangement somehow!


More wood pallet DIY projects are coming up! stay tuned.


Thank you so much for reading!

Much love!

8 Fashion essentials for summer 2013 in pictures

8 Summer Wardrobe Essentials to help you come up with a plan for the first shopping trip of the season. 
Electro pop bandage skirt- NASTY GIRL
      Neon colours continues to be the trend of the year. Mix and match your neon jeans with solid colours or prints (floral and graphic). Wear your LBD and spice it up with neon shoes, accessories, nail polish and lipstick. The thing with neon is that you don’t need that much to jazz up your look.


1 Jaquard Crop Top- RIVER ISLAND
3 Sleeveless Lace Crop Top- MOTEL
      Flaunt your curves this summer with crop tops. Team them up with shorts, Maxi skirts or pencil skirts. Wear a jacket over your crop top to bring a more feminine look to your outfit. To make a statement with your crop top try neon colours or graphic tees with catchy wordings.  

Floral print seems to be very popular again this summer with the stores filled with floral printed jackets! Wear them over a tank top and team them up with your favourite jeans. Be careful about the colours. Choose plain colours with a simple tailoring when your teaming up because you don’t want your top or jeans to compete with the colours of the  jacket.To complete the look wear wedge heels or ballerina flats. 

1 Exclamation statement crop tank- GO JANE
2 Stained glass chenille jacquard mini dress- ALEXANDER MCQUEEN
3 Ladies Graphic Printed Crunch Sleeveless Tops- Jamie Sadock
This summer graphic prints are ruling the runway! Straight, vertical, upside down, colourful, crazy, psychedelic graphics and we can go on and on and on! 

The maxi is still on top of the fashion game, not only as evening wear but also as casual wear. get them in neon colours or graphic/ floral prints- team them up with a jacket and accessorize. 

Asymmetric origami skirts seem to be all the rage. They come in different shapes and styles.Try them out with different kinds of tops and accessories to complete the look. 

Orange geometric jacquard shorts- SOPHIE HULME
Floral print stretch silk crepe de chine shorts-TUCKER
1969 Printed always skinny jeans- GAP 
    Printed jeans are for those who like to keep it simple and stylish. You can team them up with solid colours to look absolutely hip. 

Shirt with pleated frill shoulder- TFNC


      The basic white shirt is a must have for this summer. Buy the most comfortable plain white tee shirt to team up with jeans or shorts. A sheer white shirt will look great with your maxi/ origami skirt. 

     Hope you enjoyed reading this. 

     Much love,
     Mickey...

Earring trends for 2013

Studs 
Stud earrings made with quality materials are always in. At school, in college, in the office, on the go, and even at the gym, they are not only practical, but also charmingly beautiful. Just as last year, the trend could be expected to continue throughout the year. Key- always make sure they are made of quality materials

Statement Earrings
Statement jewellery has taken the fashion industry by storm. Statement earrings has become every girls latest obsession. They never fail to make a statement even if you wear them with plain jeans and a tshirt. They come in all shapes, sizes and colours. They just add all that jazz to any outfit, glam up any look in no time, and you don’t need to spend a fortune to get your hands on such a piece.

Taylor Swift

Megan Fox

Kim Cattral
Multiple Piercings  
Multiple piercings were huge during 90's and they are making a grand comeback this year. Combinations of two or three piercings and one or more piercing in the upper ear are the most common. We see men sporting multiple piercings too, for men, earrings in just one year is no longer a trend.

Hilary Duff

Miley Cyrus

Alicia Keys

Kim Kardishian

Emma Watson

Low Key Drop Earrings
Small, delicate and to the point, the low-key drop earring complements even the heaviest outfits without overpowering it. Try wearing them with a heavily embellished dress, a saree or even at your own wedding to add class and elegance to the entire look.

The Ear Cuff
Ear cuffs too are making a comeback just like the multiple piercings. The style was big back in the late 90's. Ear cuffs too can be considered as statement earrings, they are often big in size and it's impossible not to notice them. I can guarantee you're going to want one as much as I do.

No earrings
Trends don't mean a thing to some girls, they prefer not wearing earrings at all. We see celebs walking the red carpet and everyday working girls keeping it simple by not wearing earrings. This definitely makes it a trend for the year 2013.
