Tigers

lalaland 041

Just stumbled across these pictures, they aren’t the best quality but I thought what the heck my followers might like this outfit hahaha. This is from the summer by the way, not going out in shorts in this crappy weather (raining and gray in England right now).

Bought these awesome shorts from eBay for around £7, probably one of my best buys from eBay, along with my beautiful faux fur coat and my converse which I have worn to death.
Will have a college outfit post for you sometime this week.

Love,
Tigerlilly xxxxx

In the morning I made Rangoli and it turned out pretty well, didn't it? ;)







And I wore this...



Yes I cannot set my face straight

Buy it for less, fashion rush style.

American Apparel 3-D jumper
This beautiful jumper costs £75, which is a ridiculous price for someone with a budget like me.
I found an amazing replica on eBay for so much less. Received it in the post yesterday and its gorgeous. Buy it on eBay here. They have it in pink, white and black. I got the white one!

Moschino Belt
Don’t know about you guys, but I have been lusting over this amazing belt for ages now.
But it’s so so expensive, even on eBay they sell for over £50, which for a belt i think is ridiculous.
I somehow stumbled across this website called ‘Ioffer’ which sells designer replicas really cheap!
I purchased this belt the other day and I cant wait for it to arrive! Click here to get one of these fantastic belts for just over £20!

Ysl ‘Arty’ ring
This ring is so beautiful and it seems like everyone has it at the moment. However the price is ridiculous, but of course it is ysl and it will cost that much. But, if you don’t have that sort of cash to spend here is an amazing alternative which will only cost you £1.87 bargain! Click here to get your hands of these beauties!

Alexander Wang ‘Rocco’ Studded Bag
Of course my list wouldn’t be complete without the wonderful Rocco bag. This bag is amazing. However I do not own one yet, due to like £0.123 in my bank. Ebay sell these bags for £20 and they look identical. Buy one here (the cheapest one i could find, tell me if you find a cheaper one!)

Hope you liked this little budget item list and hope it helped, tell me if you would like another one!


Lots of love,
Tigerlilly xoxo

BLOCK IT!!

Hey Folks,
Finally I'm done with my exams.. pheww.. They went pretty well..

This is my first attempt to color blocking so kept till bag only. Hope you like it :)







Shirt: Biglife
Jeans: Xpose
Ring: Ginger, Lifestyle : You have seen it here too
Bag: Thriftrd
Shoes: Catwalk
Headband: Stolen







I wore this when 'A' and I went to Bercos, Noida. The food was lip smacking.I ate till my stomach started to hurt. I'm a big foodie!! :D





This is another Nail Art I did. It's very very simple-
- Apply a base coat of any color(like mine is light pink). Let it dry.

-Cut thin layer of tape  and put it criss-cross or any pattern you want (Use a translucent tape)

-Apply a top coat. Yes, the tape would also get colored.( like Majenta in my case)

-Remove it and voila. It's done.

I'm so excited for the weekend and the coming week.
Firstly I'm going out with 'A' tomorrow. It's a surprise for me ..yeyy
Secondly, I'll buy either colored/ black translucent tights for my Zara Skirt.

AND, DIWALI is coming... For those who don't know what it is-
Diwali is a "festival of lights" which is celebrated in India every year. It symbolizes the triumph of good over evil. The Hindus celebrate this festival to commemorate the homecoming of Lord Rama after 14 year-long exile and his victory over the mythological demon Ravana. This year we will celebrate it on 26th of this month.

Here is a glimpse of all the things essential to make a beautiful Diwali more special.
Diyas, Rangoli, Pooja, Crackers and wishes to loved ones :)




Hope you have a lovely weekend cos I sure will :)
See you soon :)

Keep Smiling. Have fun

xoxo

I was so lucky to have gone to Ziad Ghanem’s fashion show in September. It was my first fashion show and it was amazing. My friend, Fleur, her uncle lives with Ziad so we got 2nd row tickets (her mum got first) and loads of freebees. The collection was fabulous, the models were so different and it was overall a wonderful evening. You can check out the video for this show here.
Hopefully I will be attending his show in November, i cant wait!

Love, Tigerlilly
