Self Drive: New Zealand

Hiiiiiii guyssss….

I wrote about my amazing Spa experience in New Zealand, here i’m going to be talking about the best experience I had there: Self Drive!


Nothing like driving through smooth clean roads with green plush gardens full of farm animals in scenic backdrop.


Auckland —- Rotorua —- Te Anua –flight to– Queenstown —- Wanaka —- Franz Josef


We drove all the way from Auckland airport to Rotorua lake, to Te Anua. Our car was rented from Apex Car Rentals, their customer service was nothing but amazing.

Driving through these small towns we faced issues with parking, google maps helped find our locations.

You have to take a flight from Auckland for Queenstown, which means you go to Te Anua and come back to Auckland for your flight, in Queenstown we had the most amazing time, driving from Queens town to Wanaka, sitting by the lake on your car bumper with take away food and silence and driving to Franz Josef was a moment I will cherish forever.



Stay tune for more of our updates on New Zealand here.

Chanel- 2018 Spring Collection

Absolutely in love with Chanel 2018 Ready to Wear Collection.

The entire show set with a backdrop of waterfalls, mixing a texture of water, beauty and colours that make you feel relaxed got us awestruck. I like that the show was a bit extra!

Chanel known for never going overboard, sophisticated and with intricate designs has come up yet again with a collection that will make you feel beautiful by just looking at it.

Here are a few looks from their collection:

This yellow outfit strangely gives me a 60’s girl vibe.

Shoes: Hero of your outfit!

Hello Lovelies!
So after we listed all our favourite shoes. Incase you missed it click here “Shoes you’ve got to love”
We put our heads together to understand if you don’t want to invest in really expensive shoes what are the different things you could do to Make your shoes stand out!!
So we tried a couple of different styles and did some research, here’s what we found out.
1- Whenever you wear a sold dark colour dress, a pair of contrast heels will do the job to make your outfit look formal and chic.
2- To make a statement with your shoes you can always add a rhinestone or lace shoe clips. Absolutely Audrey has some amazing ones
2- Incase of ankle tie up shoes. You can replace the normal ties with beautiful silk scarfs or ribbons.

3- If you aren’t a heels type of a girl you can always pair a cute dress with sneakers. This is always a hit!

4- If you love slippers and want to spruce your slippers up. Have a look at this:
You can add whatever you like on the slippers, PomPoms, Rhinestones etc.
5- For sneaker lovers you can up your sneaker game by adding funky stickers to solid colour shoes.
6- Sometimes a statement anklet can also add the Oomph to your shoes!
Have you tried any of these? Or any other suggestions? Comment below!!

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!

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!
Until Next Time,
