Fading Fashion

Posted on Updated on

Fading fashion is a post about which trends are expected to be out of fashion this year.well do not throw those stuff away as fashion fades, style is eternal. Seriously girls, you can style it and wear it your way, different is always interesting. Btw fashion always makes a comeback so it would also be wise to wait for the things which are out of fashion for now to come back later. Anyways Let me update you here with fading fashion trends for this year(what not to wear in 2016).

what not to wear in 2016

Sheer Maxi skirts

Girls say Adios to sheer maxi skirts, they are not in fashion anymore.But i liked them 😦

8. Sheer Maxi Skirts That girl looks so cool in that see-through maxi skirt! Said no one ever.

Peplum– Yay, I never liked them anyway. For those who have no idea what Peplum is- It is ruffle,flare around the waist of your jacket, top or dress.

Polo Ralph Lauren Peplum Top

 

Waterfall Cardigans

Alexander McQueen Draped wool and cashmere-blend cardigan

Overalls

TOPSHOP PU Skinny Dungarees

Jeggings-

White Stuff Jade Jegging Jeans, White

Prairie skirts

 

 

Internet is talking about what is going to be a major trend in 2016. Almost everywhere.

Uh huh but it is equally important to know trends which are going to be out of fashion this year.Still I insist on wear whatever you want,whenever you want for “fashion fades, style stays!”

Say TEA !! Therapeutic herbal tea recipe.

Posted on Updated on

Big Hello and a shout out to all my friends who were there for me when I was down. Now that I am sound and healthy, I want to thank you with a big smile which was brought to me by your lovely comments and wishes.

wanted to be back as soon as possible so here I am and I brought something with me. A traditional remedy for sore throat,cold and cough which surprisingly relieved my throat the moment i had it.

Anyways if you are from north India, you might be knowing what Kadha is. For others and I know there are many in others, Kadha is a type of herbal tea made with ginger, pepper, cardamom, basil leaves etc. Guys it is good, it might sound weird but I like it and it really worked. I was also given fenugreek leaves fritters with it. They taste bitter, I hate them but mom said that only bitterness will shoo away bitterness and since my mouth was bitter since few days, I agreed to have them in hope that they will taste good.

Here is the recipe for Kadha

Instructions:

  • Heat water and add all ingredients. Allow it to boil for 10 minutes. strain and pour it into a cup, hot.

What other Tea can you have?

  1. PEPPERMINT TEA- Increases digestion, soothes stomach.
  2. CHAMOMILE TEA- Reduces sleeplessness and anxiety.
  3. LEMON TEA- your source for vit. c. controls blood sugar level.

Health benefits of Kadha-

Removes Toxic matter from our body.

Hmm, hoping that you will brew yourself a cup of Kadha next time you have sore throat. That is all for now.

Take care.
