More from Vienna and Budapest

I made a little blooper in my last post. I hope you remember that I mentioned that Roseanne and I had a relaxed lunch at the SAPA Restaurant in Vienna. And I posted a couple of pictures of my gorgeous best friend without captioning them. So now, many among you thing that the lovely girl in the pictures is me. Nope, I am the bespectacled geek sitting across her.

So sharing some more pictures from Vienna and Budapest. I can feel that I have been bitten by the travel bug. I now want to travel to Greece. And then back to Austria, this time for a longer duration.

Will resume the fashion posts next week. I have a lot of new things happening in my life that i am just dying to share with you all. More on that later. To avoid any confusion this time, I am the tall woman in the yellow singlet. Have a great week ahead, my lovely blogging friends.

Back from Vienna!

Hey there. Am back from my whirlwind trip from Budapest and Vienna. It was an Entry and Exit trip. No sooner had we landed, it was time to go back. And I could only spend a day each in the two cities. So well, let's just say that i plan to go back and explore these two wonderful places, and this time around, Prague will definitely be on my list. But all in all, it was a great weekend.

In Budapest, I spent Saturday, exploring the great market hall, and then the office took us for a boat cruise on the River Danube. Post the cruise, I walked down Vaci Utca, a lovely street great for people watching, relaxing with a beer, and shopping. Budapest is one of the cheapest European cities I have been to. Its people are warm and friendly, and the food is great. Our office put us up in these lovely luxury apartments in Boscolo Hotels, and I optimized my hotel time with a long, luxurious bubble bath, using a LUSH Bath Bomb. I usually make it a point to carry Bath Bombs for all my vacations.

My Apartment In Budapest

In Vienna, we roamed the lanes of the famous Nashmarkt, looking at the juicy fruits and yummy delectable delights that the market is so famous for. Later, Roseanne and I walked down the streets of Vienna, did some shopping and had a long, lazy lunch.

Am back in office now, and pretty exhausted. Just uploading a few pictures from the trip. Since it was a really short trip, I could not shop much. But will post pictures soon of the goodies I managed to bring back. Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend.

Style Trends - Lakme Fashion Week - Colored Pants

We saw them on the runways across the world. So it's no surprise at all that the pants have acquired colors on the Indian style scene too.

I really feel that this trend brings in a real freshness to fashion, as I often find myself bored with pants, and color brings such a welcome change to an old piece of clothing. As with all fashion trends, however, this is one style that should be adapted with caution. Being heavy bottomed, I'd go with darker, more neutral colors, rather than wear a neon that screams, "fatass"! Colored pants also call for simpler styles. You want just one trend to take precedence at a time. Clean lines and styles add brownie points to color worn well on your legs.
