I recently had the opportunity to collaborate with CaseApp and design my own phone case and laptop skin. Caseapp.com is an online company where you can design and customize phone cases, laptop skins and iPad covers. Isn’t it just wonderful? My iPhone and Mac Book goes everywhere with me. I really like to have a phone case and lap top skin that not only protects them but also has some personality and stands out. So, when CaseApp contacted me and asked if I wanted to design and review an iPhone case and a Mac Book skin I jumped at the chance.

The ordering process was easy. Just select your device type and browse through their designs. You get taken to an online editing tool where you can either use their tools to create a design, or you can upload your own photo, then add text, clip art or backgrounds to create a case that is unique to you! You then click save and you get taken to the screen where you can put your details in for payment and shipment. It’s as simple as that!

I opted for the famous Marble skin for my Mac Book and pink glitter case for my iPhone 6 plus, because I like keeping my gadget cases and skins simple, and I think anything marble and pink is classic and always looks so pretty. But, as CaseApp has a custom design option, I say go crazy and take inspiration from some of your wonderful images and create your very own unique design for your device.

I can’t fault the CaseApp products I received, it is well done and of good quality. The service was also amazing. The cost seemed reasonable. They seriously turned out so amazing and I have received so many compliments on my new phone case as well as laptop skin. I’m sure you’ll love them too. Give it a shot. 

If you want to make a case of your own, don’t forget to use code PRETTYPINKROSES20 to get 20% off your order through July 31.

Happy Monday, ladies!

I hope your week is off to a great start! 🙂
I must be on a red binge lately. Hehe! I am not really a fan of the color red but, I’ve always appreciated it. Red is such a gorgeous color to wear all year long and can be incorporated in an outfit in so many ways.

Today’s dress from Sammy Dress is probably one of the prettiest dresses I own. Aside from the fact that I really love a great red dress in general, I absolutely adore how casually effortless this one is. From the laced full sleeves and the mandarin collar to the flattering cut and quality of the fabric, I love it all!

For today’s look, I paired up this hand painted lace spliced beauty with these gorgeous black caged sandals, I got from Sammy dress as well. I absolutely loved these sandals. They’re very trendy and are of a great quality. They worked just well with my dress! Sammydress.com has a variety of quality apparels, shoes, bags and other accessories. Most of the products they sell are really attractive and are worth a try. I would highly recommend you to try their dresses and shoes. They have an array of good quality dresses and accessories under $25 which is a great deal. You should try this website once because the items are dirt cheap for their quality.

And also, It’s time for a FAB giveaway. How would you like to win a Mac book Air and a Kate Spade tote, ladies?  I’ve teamed up some amazing bloggers to bring you this fun giveaway! Just scroll down to the widget below to send in your entries. Good luck and have a great day! 🙂

Hi ladies,

Happy Tuesday! Talking about this flirty and fun Boho chic look on the blog today. This embroidered bright- colored number from MARCH11 I’m sporting in today’s look is my latest discovery and it has such a summery look and feel! This dress totally blew me away with the embroidered balloon sleeves, perfect fit, the color and those tassels are perfection. I am also a little partial to trendy dresses I can dress up or down, and I always look for pieces with a bit of personality. Something that makes them special, like color or embellishment, or as it happens to be in this case, both of the above

About the brand..

MARCH11, a New York based brand embraces the spirit of travel and is influenced by travel experiences, discoveries and memories. This brand added a new page to the history of different ancient national traditions and brought a contemporary fashion statement to the world. MARCH11 has a beautiful collection of embroidered blouses and dresses for women all over the world. Read more about them here.

About the dress..

This beautiful ‘Poppy’ linen flower pixel mini dress has voluminous sleeves and is finished with black and white embroidery and tassels. It has a curved hem and defined shoulders that keep the loose fit flattering. These dresses take over 3,000 meters of embroidery threads and up to 14 days to complete. Cut for a loose fit, this vibrant red linen design comes with a detachable waist belt to flatter our frame. What I love the most about the dress is the black and white tasseled ties. We can make them pop with black/white accessories.

This design was inspired by…

MARCH11’s ‘Kilim’ mini dress is inspired by the Ukranian ‘Vyshyvanka’ – a traditional shirt known for its intricate embroidery and billowing silhouette. This piece was designed for the women who are globetrotters and easily combine ethnic pieces with those having contemporary aesthetic. You can dress it up or down, wear with sneakers or heels. You can open the poppers to style it differently; open shoulder or a high split. It also comes in different styles and various colors.

My look..

For today’s hippy/boho look, I dressed it up with my striped wedges and a straw tote, but what I love about this dress so much, is the fact that I can easily dress it down with a pair of flats and a simple cross body bag for a much more easy-going, day-time appropriate vibe. If you want to emphasize its bohemian feel, go with strappy sandals.

P. S. MARCH11 dresses are available on NET-A-PORTER too. Do check them out!

Hi ladies!

Happy Tuesday!
Talking about two piece sets or ‘Co-ords’ on the blog today! This is a 90’s revival trend and a whole lot of fun. The idea of a Co-ord set is awesome because it literally requires no thinking. You don’t have to debate what pants to wear with what top —you just wear them together! But the even more beautiful thing about them is that you don’t always have to wear them together. You can split them up! Both pieces can also be worn as separates, meaning it will work overtime in your wardrobe.

Although I love sundresses as much as the next girl, coordinated sets have edged their way into my heart as a welcome shake-up from my routine summer staples. Two-piece sets come in so many styles but one of my favorites is when paired with a crop top. Don’t second guess your ability to pull off a cropped-top set – it can be chic and sophisticated at almost any stage in life. For a classic feminine perfection, opt for a high-waisted skirt(maxi, midi or mini). For an edgy look, you could also drape a leather jacket over your shoulders.

This cute co-ord set from Shein is my favorite pretty pair as of now. Absolutely adore the quality, print and the vibrant colors of this set. You can take this look casual for the weekend or dressy for date night out or even a semi-formal occasion. Seriously, these sets are a must have for Summer. Check them out, ladies!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great week ahead!

Happy Hump Day! Talking about a simple, classic summer dress from Romwe on the blog today! I’m sure most of you have heard of Romwe, one of the popular online retailer stores that has an amazing selection of stunning dresses and accessories to choose from.

I loved the look of this blue tribal print flare dress when I saw it online. I was instantly drawn to the subtle blue color palette ( I am partial to blue always, well after shades of pink first) and the print on the dress. I loved it even more when I slipped it on. 

The material is great, the dress has perfect shape to it and the fit was very comfortable on my torso. I have to say, ordering from Romwe was a pretty positive experience. I got the most amazing quality dress, which was printed on really good quality fabric. More than anything, has a high neck with a really unique design and I wouldn’t have been able to find it anywhere else.

Absolutely loved this dress. It’s sweet and classic. It even matched my blue shoes perfectly. Such a sucker for matching. Hehe! This one’s a total must have this summer! All you need to dazzle the onlookers with this little blue dress is just add a touch of blue pumps, a classy clutch, a pair of gorgeous earrings and voilà! You’re all set!
Thank you so much for stopping by, loves!

Happy Friday love bugs!

Talking about my visit to Culebra on the blog today! Culebra is a small island located on the east side of Puerto Rico. I loved my visit to this little island for various reasons, one of them being that it has one of the best beaches in the world- the Flamenco beach. The water is crystal clear which is perfect for snorkeling and the sand is perfectly white. If you are looking for a quick visit to Flamenco Beach, just hop on a ferry or pay a quick trip on a small plane.

Once you get there, you can rent a jeep or take a taxi to explore local places. You can either stay and camp at the beach, rent a villa, or stay at a hotel; either way, you can also leave the same day. That’s what I did. Although my favorite thing to do is camp at Flamenco Beach — you get to enjoy the beach all day, the stars at night and the sunrise the next day. It’s completely breathtaking.

On to my outfit- Can I just talk about how much I am loving this blue halter neck maxi dress from Shein!? This maxi dress is both stylish and comfy at the same time. It’s a perfect dress to wear on the beach, as a guest to a summer outdoor wedding or for a romantic weekend getaway. If I could sleep in this maxi dress, I would. It’s just so light, flowy and pretty! And did I mention the dress is on sale for $25?! Gotta love online shopping!

I paired the gorgeous dress with my favorite pair of striped espadrille wedges, a pair of tassel earrings from Bauble bar, a large floppy hat and a beach tote of course. Hope you liked this look.
Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend, ladies!

Hi ladies!

Happy Monday! Today’s post is in collaboration with Dainty Jewell’s and it has to be my favorite one in a while. All of their dresses are just beautiful and have the most amazing details. This perfectly glorious polka dot dress with a lovely sash is just wonderful for any occasion, because it’s just that delightful. If you’re looking for elegant modest dresses, bridesmaid dresses or plus sized dresses, check out Dainty Jewell’s.

I just loved wearing this dress, you know that feeling and confidence you have when you’re wearing an outfit you know looks amazing on you. That is this dress. Loved it. It feels so classic, chic, and feminine. This dress is not an actual stark white but more of a softer cream/off white which make the dress 10x classier and chic! This dress is a beautiful timeless piece that you will have from year to year and that you will wear for so many different occasions.  

Label me a fan of Dainty Jewell’s. Their Instagram account is as adorable as you’d expect, so be sure to follow it. I styled my dress with black and white accessories — a black clutch, a pair of earrings from Bauble bar and white lace-up heels from TJ Maxx.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great start to your week. ladies!

Hi lovelies!
I hope this finds you well! I am back home from a wonderful vacation to Puerto Rico with my husband. I really feel rested and after coming home, I recognized just how much I needed that time away. I absolutely loved Puerto Rico, especially the colonial architecture and palm-lined beaches. For a weekend or a week-long getaway, “la isla del enchanto,” as it’s affectionately called by locals, is definitely a go-to destination!

On day one, we explored the historic Old San Juan and it can be summed up in a single word: colorful. With only two days to spend in OSJ, I wanted to see and do as much as possible. With the help of a lot of travel tips, I had an incredible day exploring the best of Old San Juan.
My first stop was El Castillo San Felipe del Morro, more commonly known as El Morro. Built in the 1500s as a military structure, it is one of the most picturesque destinations in all of Puerto Rico offering gorgeous views of the Caribbean. Apart from the historic value, I liked the cool sea breeze, open meadows and calmness.

Coming to my outfit, ah, I am in loooove! Tribal print motifs would surely be one of the big trends this spring/summer! I spotted this dress on Shein website and knew it would be a summer hit in my wardrobe repertoire. But I thought: “oh gosh, I won’t be able to pull that off. It’s too boho for me.” But, this is a versatile piece plus, I loved the tribal print and the vibrant color. So, I had to give it a shot. Definitely a showstopper! (And it leaves plenty of eat/drink/be merry room since it’s not cinched at the waist – YAY!). I paired it with a yellow cross body bag, my favorite  gold gladiator lace-ups and tassel earrings to give the look a little more sass. Hope you liked it.

Thank you so much for stopping by, ladies! Have a great Memorial day weekend!

Hey beauties!

Happy Almost Friday! We are so close to the weekend and I’m ready for my tropical getaway to Puerto Rico this weekend for our third wedding Anniversary! Yay! 🙂

Today’s post is all about the Jumpsuit trend. Jumpsuits (and their shorter friend, the romper) are everywhere this season and promise to be both a daytime and nighttime staple for the spring and summer months. You can effortlessly create a polished outfit with just one piece and it’s perfect for a myriad of occasions. Jumpsuits have been in vogue for a few years now, and show no sign of moving out of the spotlight.

I’ve been eyeing jumpsuits the last couple months and been anxious to try one. I saw this blush one and knew it was the perfect one for my first time trying the trend. They are surprisingly more comfortable and versatile than I anticipated. Jumpsuit in fact, is a fine piece of your collection that makes your life simple and gives you tons of personality. Also, it’s the easiest piece you can ever wear and still look chic, yet you can still dress it out down by layering a top underneath or throwing a denim jacket over.
But, when you’re looking for a jumpsuit, fit is always important, which is why I’m obsessed with this one. The slim fit of the trousers to the tie waist – everything is just perfection!

Finding a perfect jumpsuit..

• The ones with the almighty belt. A belt can completely change the look of any jumper. My favorite tricks is to use a belt tied in a bow. It’s another great way to add shape while still looking stylish!

The best advice I can give, as I do with a jumpsuit, is make provisions in the fit. Going a little larger is better than ‘this is a little snug, but I’m going to lose a few pounds so I’ll get this anyway.’

• The dark color ones make you look long and lean, and emphasizes your beautiful figure instead of any problem areas.

• For ladies whose body shape is mostly straight up and down, I suggest opting for a jumpsuit with stiffer fabric, and to avoid thin, soft fabrics. Stiffer fabrics give the illusion of curves.

• Jumpsuits are the ultimate lazy girl go-to. With the all-in-one ensemble, all you need to think about are your shoes, bag, and a few carefully considered accessories.

So if you are tired of dresses and skirts and want a trendy outfit without having to put too many pieces together, jumpsuits are right for you!
Thank you for stopping by, ladies! Have a wonderful weekend! 🙂

Hey beauties!

Happy Friday! 🙂 Today, I’m sharing with you my Irresistible Me Hair Extensions review on the blog. So when Irresistible Me contacted me to ask if I wanted to give their hair extensions a try, I decided to take the plunge. I was sent extensions a few weeks ago and I must say I really loved them. It was also the first time, I ever tried on extensions! And wow!!

For those of you who haven’t heard about Irresistible Me before I’ll start with quick introduction. They are a company based in NY, which specialize not only in hair extensions but also in hair tools and hair accessories. They offer three different types (sets) of hair extensions – Silky Touch, Royal Remy and Volume Vixen. You can find more information about the company and their products on their website.

What you get in the set..

The hair extensions came in a simple yet stylish black box. Everything was neatly packed and the hair was secured pretty well. No tangles whatsoever when I opened the sealed packet. My hair is a bit long already, so I chose a 24” in silky natural black. However if you haven’t worn extensions before and/or if you are planning to use them every day my advice is to choose a shorter length (20″ – 22″).

The 24 inches comes in 200 grams worth of hair, which believe me it’s more than enough. There are 10 wefts in the set – 1 piece of 4 clips, 2 pieces of 3 clips, 5 pieces of 2 clips and 2 pieces of 1 clip. This is a lot of hair and I can barely fit it all on my head(I used only 4 of them), but I love big voluminous bouncy hair! So no complaints! I love how these wefts blend in with your natural hair super effortlessly. Irresistible Me clips are relatively small but surprisingly they have really strong grip and they stayed in place. 

Quality and comfort..

The hair is 100% Remy human hair and the quality is just amazing – smooth, silky and shiny.  I love the fact that the extensions have the same thickness from the “roots” to the ends. This is something that in my opinion is very important especially for long extensions. It just looks better and it’s easier to cover the short hair.
About the comfort, to be honest, it did feel a little weird first few minutes after I clipped all the wefts – but then once I got used to it, I didn’t feel any weirdness. So, if you’re looking for extensions that feel and look natural, plus can also be styled any way you want – even with a hair curler, no less – I highly recommend Irresistible Me. You’ll love these extensions. And they ship worldwide.
Do you use extensions and which are your favorite ones? Do you have any tips and tricks for wearing extensions? Let me know in the comments below! I am always happy to hear from you! Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend, ladies! 🙂

Kavya
