Auctor Hostis 🍴- host a la mode !

The word Host comes from the Latin word ’Hostis’ & Styling Neurons added some Latin style by the norm , making it Auctor Hostis !! Cooking being my stress free activity of the day , hosting comes to me as a hobby. As much I enjoy experimenting my culinary skills,  I equally enjoy feeding my friends & family. And similarly as I enjoy hosting , I love presenting myself a la mode ,synonym to stylish 😉

A meal appealing to eyes itself does halfway justice to the hunger & so does well presented host to a perfect evening … I don’t claim one should take as much the effort to get ready as you step out of house, but I definitely vouch for that simple little efforts to be a notch more appealable to create the Aura ! 

A pair of lovely earrings or a neckpiece to lift up the tee shade you wear … soft tone on lips if bright colours are bold for you … a simple colourful flat sandal on denims to be the eye catcher. Little things that make big trick to add style, whilst enhancing the hard work behind the chores of hosting. A fresh , vibrant & charming vibe  lifts up the hosting level as the guests arrive …

How I Hosted this Sunday Afternoon ? Jumper tee – Apricot , denims – Mango , Flats – Primark

Much love , Heena 🌹

Adoring the growing temperatures & the brighter sunshine , are you ?? Lighter mornings & longer evenings have quite literally put a ( slice of ) spring into our routines ! Soon shall be the time to push our winter coats to the back of closets & bring the anklets out of hibernation… Spring !! We can’t wait !! 

Spring to me brings the buds blooming , birds chirping , the sun shining bright through the yet not so higher temperatures , the harvest & so on.  And so my Styling Neurons give me a tickle to incorporate this beautiful weather change in my  daily wardrobe style. The ‘never wrong’  way to dress up in spring style is to wear florals… an essential which each of our wardrobes would have or if not ,it’s time to shop !!

Floral prints can be styled practically with anything you want. Team your white shirts / plain tees with bright floral bottoms or even vice versa. Floral tops are a great way to bring the vibrant & positive vibes to your workday. Velvet is typically reserved for the colder months but in a bright colour with floral print, it’s just a perfect attire for a spring evening ! All you need is to glam it up with accessories…

Twenty Trendy Eighteen – wanna trend with me !

Witty shopping is when you do it for the season next ! And hence I am always looking for what’s next IT ( in trend ) … it’s a part of my DNA being a fashion lover.  Spring in 3 words – ‘ Feel Good Fashion’ and with my this écriture I bring to you the season’s upcoming styles & fashion which ‘20 trendy 18’ has in store for you ❤️ A glimpse in crux : 

1) Clothes to party in : sparkles , tassels & feathers 

2) Clothes to wiggle in : pencil skirts, sheer layers & fantastic plastics 

My top picks for trendy year start :

1) Buckle Shoes  – self portrait paired buckle shoes are the perfect look for Spring 2018! The retro style is sure to make a big comeback .. the detail is strong enough to make a statement and at the same time versatile to be incorporated with your daily wardrobe !

2) Pencil Skirts  – pleats and flairs were so last year 😉 2018 the pencils are to rule. From a work day apparel to an evening out , from a weekender to sleek dinner look they fit it all ! A perfect mismatch as I say, shall do the charm… Want to camouflage that mommy fat around the waist ? Team it with a chiffon / silk shirt .. or loose top and get that perfect tall look you need. Bold enough to match different prints ? they do wonders, try it !

3) Knitted bags – The next IT bag – fisherman’s totes & slings. Fashion houses have transformed the mundane fish nets into stylish carry-all essentials  for the season. These bags will be the catch of the day , come 2018 !

My look – I team my denims with chic top , leather Jackie & let the statement sketchers do the talking. I prefer totes over slings when I travel as being mum I have additions over basics to carry in hand .. each mum would agree ! A scarf to keep me warm & cosy on the plane too ☺️ I chose same hues ( royal blue, black & white )for my look , as I advised in my earlier blog.

Les Vacances Élégantes ! (The holiday edit )

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Its time of the year when most of the Travel & Tourism industry earns, as schools & offices are off to celebrate the most cherished festival – Christmas ! Are you holiday ready ?! Whether travelling for a living / visiting family / vacationing just for leisure, doing it in style doesn’t come naturally .. yes I do understand the crunch of travel & to add that style element on top of it is difficult. Hence I let my StylingNeurons drive you through my blog, showing you how to master the chic travel style with 5 Travel Tips : 

1) Let the Weather set up the ramp – Always let the holiday packing start with the weather board – checking weather of the destination & for the duration of visit. As you do not want to be freezing with cotton ‘chemise’ in lower temperatures…

2) A 5 minute – to wear list – trust me this won’t harm 😉 I do agree it’s a 5 minute list to write down, but worth the effort . Jotting down each day menu of your wardrobe helps you to visualise how do you want to portray yourself. Do not forget to add details of a matching neckpiece you have or a lovely wristwatch that would go with attire .. as when you pack , you won’t forget the minute styling details ! 

3) What do you carry ? – so if the trip is for 3 nights carry in 3’s is the rule ! 3 – socks 3- tees 3-trousers/ skirts/ bottoms.. Try plan your luggage in similar hues – reason – it’s easier to combine or mixmatch at end moment with minimal styling effort.  

4) Are you carrying the “new buys” – Nothing beats the joy of carrying your newly bought wardrobe for holiday & put it to action, I do the same too 😍 But at the same time I strongly recommend for the new wardrobe to undergo a comfort test before entering the bag…

Heena says – Footwear especially needs a couple hours of comfort check before hitting the suitcase !

5) Minimalism – The toughest part I know ! A stylish wardrobe needs the style elements, not the bulk… Example – two different tops with same bottoms can create different looks with different accessories/ footwear/ add on scarf / hat! Having said that do not forget to add a little iron , incase the hotels don’t have it always appeals to wear a simple yet crisp , crease free attire to get noticed 😀

Hope my Holiday Styling Tips will help you in your next travel dairy to be a memorable & Stylish one !! Styling Neurons will be happy to hear your feedback / which tip you liked the most or even share your favourite holiday tips in comments below … till then Bon Voyage & Stay Stylish 💕

Black is wow & how !

One of the “job hazards” of being a fashion blogger is to pose for styles in freezing temperatures.. well my StylingNeurons will never let the wintery mix dampen our aim to Style ! Am here with my 1st blog all set to inspire for the rest of Winters ( sorry it’s not over yet )

Black clothes are our lifeblood , Denim is our biggest addiction !

Let them both marry again, it’s over beloved winter season !! 

Someone would assume when they both collide – which they do with this weather, is it about time to rethink the wardrobe classic & nudge it into a fresher territory !! 

Heena Says – Blue Denim is classic , but this winter let the Black slay…

Look 1 – Formal all the way ( jingle bells .. pardon my festive fever 😉) Crisp white Shirt, Black Denims, Blazer & Ankle length boots.

Look 2- Create that envy when you meet other mums for afternoon coffee ! Let statement shoes & accessories do the play…

Look 3- Sudden date plan ?! Team the Black Denims with bright / contrast glitter sandals & “faux fur” to complete the look! 

Dash Of – In Trend – a perfect abbreviation DO-IT! My Crush – ankle length boots! 

Are you off to dig out / buy the Black Denims ? If not , now is the time ! Hoping create more looks & share more styles ..Till then Stay Stylish xx

 

Get that Oomph !!

Little did I think.. after being a wifey and a mum of two, will 24 hours be enough to be juggling /multitasking the piled up long queues..

To be honest I am absolutely not  a morning person and being one, trust me you have just enough minutes, to barely get the boys school ready and grab a cuppa morning kick. Having said that if I manage to squeeze a few minutes for a mix-matched outfit and a spark to carry it , then its an awesome start to the day – who needs coffee :p

Once my friend’s sister said ” dress up such, so you make four heads turn around”  I know its easier said but since then is my ‘mantra’ – If you make the heads turn round and those eyes roll, Styling is done right ! Being inherited with these StylingNeurons  and being noticed and appreciated always, I decided not to confine my styling to myself and share with you all.. As they say “its multiplies with sharing”

I understand the challenge of styling each day be it work, weekender, party evenings, coffee dates and so on…Being a vivid reader of latest in fashion and style, so here I would love to  bring to you all – Effortless, Everyday and Easy styling screaming out comfort and yet have that eyes rolling 🙂

StylingNeurons is all about Getting that Oomph with Heena’s style blogs and updates !! Stay tuned !!
