Winter Dressing 101 - How To Wear Ankle Boots

I was just thinking yesterday that this winter is not going to be cold enough (good for me!) and today I woke up to a chilly morning with a sun that refuses to shine bright.

If you are anywhere in the world where winters have settled in I'm sure you have pulled out your boots already. For regions that are extremely cold, long boots are a good bet to keep your legs and feet warm. But for countries like India where winters are cold but not snow cold, ankle boots are a good fashion staple.

For any fashion piece there is no absolute right or wrong. You wear something in a manner that suits your body but a lot of things do have absolute "do not" points to prevent you from making a fashion disaster.

Ankle boots are a great way to keep your feet warm and dress up a lot of outfits. Let's take a look at some points related to how to wear ankle boots.

1. With skinny jeans - this is the easiest style to wear your boots. If you have jeans that are tight at the ankles and do not scrunch up, they are your best bet to wear with ankle boots. They give your legs a lean look. Same is the case with leggings.

2. With straight pants or jeans - if you want to wear your favorite pair of straight pants or jeans then you should roll up the end so that it sits just on top of the edge of your boots. You will need to do the same for pants that are narrow at the end but not skinny.

FACES Utlime Pro Intense Gel Kajal - Review, Swatch, Price

Hi friends! It's been a really long time since I last posted on the blog. I was travelling for almost a month and just posting on social media during that time.

If you follow me on Instagram you know that I was attending a wedding in Virginia and must have seen a few pics of mine. I wore a new kajal during the celebrations and I'm sharing the review with you all now.

FACES Ultime Pro Intense Gel Kajal is a new launch from FACES Canada. Its a kajal pencil at one end and a smudger brush at the other.

The kajal has an intense black color and the pencil is itself extremely soft. The effect of the pencil is similar to what you get when you use a gel liner. The pencil is easy to use and makes the whole process of applying the kajal very quick. The pencil glides on and settles to a smudge free finish.

Fighting Pollution In Style - Vogmask N99 Protection

Delhi has always been crazily polluted but the situation worsens as the year end. We welcome Diwali, not just with lights but highly polluting crackers. But that is not the sole culprit of all the pollution. As the weather cools down all sorts of dust starts settling in the air. Couple that with the burning of farmlands in the neighbouring states, and you have a formula for weeks of unbreathable air.

With air pollution becoming deadly this season, I opted to switch from regular air pollution masks to the Vogmask. Yes its super stylish but more than that it offers the highest grade of PM 2.5 particle protection.

The mask comes in 3 sizes, small (mainly for children), medium (for people weighing upto 58kgs) and large for everyone else. The upper band of the mask that sits on the nose is bendable so that you can press it gently to fit against your face properly.

The masks come in various patterns to keep you stylish while you save your lungs from air pollution. The fabric is soft and gentle on the face. There are two ear bands on each side to hold the mask in place.

The Vogmask has an N99 filter, a carbon filter layer, and exhale valve. The material is washable and reusable which is good because these masks do not come cheap.

The mask does make breathing easier in extremely polluted environs but I've noticed at times it cannot hold back the smell that can accompany gaseous releases found in the fumes of heavily polluting traffic.

If you are a first time user of an anti-pollution face mask note that you might initially feel a little claustrophobic as the mask covers your nose and mouth. But be patient and breathe normally for a few minutes and you will soon get used to it.

I do feel that the sizes might not be perfect for everyone. I should be using a size M as per my body weight but M feels too large on my face and it feels as if more air is leaking out from the mask. Size S fits me well and feels more comfortable to wear but this definitely means I will need to replace my mask sooner.

I've had quite a few people stop me on the road to enquire about the mask. I know people are worried about pollution and want to protect themselves, but the queries come in mainly because these masks are nothing like the standard ones available mostly at chemist shops. They are stylish and eye-catching for sure!

If you don't really bother about the style factor and are on a tight budget, fret not! There are cheaper anti-pollution masks available in the market. But do make sure your mask is at least an N95 because of the amount of pollution Delhi is breathing in this month.

Stay safe and do your bit to prevent pollution!
