How to Wear Black on Black: New Year's Eve Outfit Idea

Happy New Year!!!

So, today is the last day of the year! It is the day when we must let go the past and look forward to start again fresh. It is the day about being hopeful, being pristine, feeling upbeat and feeling jubilant. It might seem very coincidental, but 'the song' from movie "Frozen" is continuously playing inside my ear since this morning. I'm sure all of you are having or going to have a great day today. The countdown to the New Year's Day is always exciting. Bring it on 2015...

Yesterday, we went to a tearoom here in Lynchburg downtown! Really liked that place; perfect for chitchatting with friends and family and enjoying great freshly made foods. The outfit I decided on, could be a perfect fit for a new year's eve party! I chose to wear black on black. I mixed textures though. Photos might not be very clear; however, I mixed faux leather (the top) with a shiny textured trousers, previously worn here. The weather outside was not very cold, and obviously I had no plan to stay outside for long, so wore this off-white/ivory blazer, perfect for light-winter. For makeup, I had some no-makeup makeup on. Natural looking eye (for tutorial click here) and natural lips too, because it was an afternoon time event. You should go ahead and play with color for night time parties. Just remember the rule is either vibrant eyes or bright lips. However if you can flaunt it, go overboard; go for a dense eye makeup as well as dark lips: "...Because it's the New Year's Eve Babe!"

The Firmoo Glasses: A Review

Hi Beauties!!!
Hope you all are doing well and can't wait to step in 2015. And here, I can't wait to share my new glasses with you. 
One of my childhood obsession was, going to school wearing spectacles and showing that to my pals. I can not explain how much I used to envy those who had specs. Finally, that dream came true when I received my Firmoo glasses for review. I loved the Firmoo-glasses that I chose. After I ordered, the shipping only took few (8-10) days to reach me. With the pair of glasses, I also received a nice case, a cleaning cloth, a pouch and a tiny screwdriver, all inclusive in the same order and without any extra charges. The screwdriver is very useful, it will help you to adjust the specs if they do not fit you. 
glasses are really comfortable and lightweight. And, I must mention one thing, the glasses are so clear that you will feel like you are only wearing the frame.

To see, how I look wearing these glasses and to know more about these glasses

Outfit of the Day: Wearing a RED Coat

The word is "Beautiful"!!!

Hi My Gorgeous Divas!!!
Hope you are having an excellent holiday season!
We had a wonderful Christmas day! Our friends (they are like families) came to visit us. We celebrated the Christmas day with a scenic drive on Blue-ridge Mountain Parkway. It's around 45 minutes from Lynchburg and it was literally a beautiful day! 
Regarding my outfit: The Red Coat I'm wearing is my Christmas gift from the Doc (my Santa). Wanted to keep the jacket as the center piece of my OOTD. So kept everything else minimal.

How to Decorate A Sunroom for Christmas: Second Edition

Christmas Decoration 2014

Hi my Beautiful Divas!!!
Merry Christmas to all of you! When I shared the photos of 2013 Christmas decor only last few days ago, I promised to myself, I will upload the photos of my 2014 Christmas Decor on Christmas Day. So, here it is. If you have not checked the 2013 decor yet, can check it here. Again, it is on my sunroom. This year I pretty much used the same stuffs that I bought last year. Although, tried to do the decor differently, the tree looks almost same. And it should look like that, because I even have used the same ornaments from last year. Last year I spent a lot, so this time I decided not to buy much. To be honest, just bought two led light sets and few things from dollar store. So, Merry Christmas once again.

BTW, Have you noticed the background? Those are the seven hills. Lynchburg is called the "City of Seven Hills". United States College Hill, Garland Hill, Daniel's Hill, Federal Hill, Diamond Hill, White Rock Hill, and Franklin Hill were the original "Seven Hills" of the City of Lynchburg.

How to Decorate A Sunroom for Christmas: First Edition

Christmas Decoration 2013

December has always been very exciting month in my life! Even when I was in India, I used to look forward to those few coldest days of the year during Christmas and New Year time to go out for a picnic or two with friends and family. And, how should I forget about the cake rituals on Christmas day? In Kolkata, all the families used to cut a cake and celebrate Jesus's birthday on 25th December. Sometimes, I remember, we baked the fruit-cake at home for the occasion. Extended families would  come to visit us or we would go to visit them. In one line, we always had gala-time in December.

In USA, December is the holiday season, festive season, joyous season. Philadelphia, New-York City and all other big cities in USA get a luminous makeover around this time. You would see lights and decorations and celebrations everywhere. Last year after moving to Lynchburg, I started decorating my Christmas tree for the first time. While uploading 'the christmas village' picture yesterday on thedocndiva facebook page , I realized I never actually shared my decoration from last year with you. Well actually shared few here. Therefore, enjoy...
