Hihihi, dolls! As you may or may not know, I'm completely and utterly addicted to e-shopping. I just love trawling through page after...

I don't know about you, but ever since spying the Burberry Silk Satin Trench coat on BeautyCrush's channel, I've been pining for it! It has to be one of the classiest coats I've ever seen! The silk material just oozes femininity and the nude-mocha colour is so flattering on Asian skin-tones.
I love everything about it, except that is, the price. At a smidgeon over £1,000 it's waaay out of my price-range. If I had that sort of cash burning holes in my pockets I'd snap it up in a flash. But alas, my arch-nemesis 'Lack of Funds' emerges victorious in their quest to obstruct my pursuit of materialistic happiness.
The only thing to do then was to hunt down dupes. I've scoured the highest e-mountains and the deepest e-rivers in search of the perfect dupe. I found many along the way that fell short in one way or another, usually the wrong colour, but finally as my energy was beginning to sap I came across a promising find by RARE in their sale.
Now it wasn't perfect by any stretch of the imagination, it had ruched sleeves that had me holding back the vomit (they disgust me!). Nevertheless, I went out on a limb and bought it. Luckily, one of my besties is the best tailor in the entire world and made a few adjustments for me. And hey presto, I've ended up with a right beaut of a trench!
This is one's for Nazneen, Tass, Sriya & Amina... The 'Halima' pose ;)
For those of you interested in the featured coat, they've still got some left in their sale for £20!

On the way back home from the truly wonderful Nepal I thought it would be mad not to stop off at my spiritual home, New Delhi, for a few days. I hadn't been for just over 18 months, but it felt like an eternity!
Getting off the plane and walking along the suspended pathway to the terminal, smelling the afternoon air in New Delhi brought back so many happy memories! We visited a couple of our favourite places: the near-perfect symmetry of Humayyun's Tomb, the wide-open expanses at Rajpath, the epic Jama Masjid in Old Delhi and of course the ever-lasting red walls of Lal Qila.
True enough, I couldn't visit New Delhi without doing some serious shopping! Whenever I go, I always stock up on beauty products! The quality is excellent and the prices unreal! So Connaught Place and Karol Bagh market were visited numerous times.
