Five Swimwear You Should Have According to Your Body Type

Are you here on this page to see which swimwear works for your body type the best?

Firstly, I believe that a confident soul can carry anything that they are comfortable in. I am against these articles that talk about how a certain body type should wear a particular type of swimwear. What if you are comfortable and satisfied in what the society declares it’s not meant for you? Call me rebellious, I don’t like it when someone says it’s not meant for me because I am the one who has to decide that. Agree?

You can’t use “embrace your body type” and “swimwear according to your body type” in one single post.  Embracing your body type is about your way of expressing yourself when you move around by not caring about what the world has to say.  

The headline of the article is totally opposite of what I am going to talk about here in this post. I am going to list out the safest and the most comfortable swimwear that one should own without thinking twice.  This post might be helpful for people who want to own one for the first time but are sceptical or for those women who want to experiment.

Finding the right swimwear is always a hassle. But in the back your mind you know what you can wear at the beach and what you can’t. Just for cheap thrills, you might just splurge into something you would never ever wear. Why do that? Invest in something that you will wear comfortably. Also, find out how you can rock a swimwear look here. You will be surprised to know the number of swim wears they have for different types. I am not going to talk in detail about it because the internet is filled with such articles.


The most friendly and comfortable designs according to me are as follows:

One Piece – The first option is the prototypical one-piece swimwear that everyone begins their swimming lessons in. It covers perfectly without making you feel awkward. There are few one pieces that come with a skirt like a frill below in case you want your thighs covered.





Designer One Piece – If typical designs are too mainstream for you, you can choose from the various designer one piece swimwear online. They have pretty cut-outs on the waist and one of them even comes with a cold shoulder option.

Tankini – It’s a two-piece suit that gives you an illusion of a one piece. Basically a combination of a camisole kind of a top and a bottom wear.

Standard Two Piece – They say a two piece is not everyone’s cup of tea. I disagree. There are so many variants and designs to choose from. If we want to feel adventurous and yet a little shy, try the high waist bottom wear with the top.

Fancy Two Pieces – As I mentioned, there are a lot of designs in two-piece swimwear online.  Keeping the high waist bottom wear in mind, look for a fancy top that’s trending and stylish depending on the type of vacation.




You can find more latest and trendy designs of swimwear online.

Emoji’ing Away

The festivities are keeping everyone busy but I had a different reason. Have been running around stores and surfing online for the best deals for something big that’s coming. I just got back from a vacation and trying my level best to get rid of all the tan that I accumulated in Bali.

It’s winter in most of the places, but I decided to swing around Bangalore in this long blue maxi dress by Zaful instead. The city that I live in is cooler only in the evening but pretty sunny otherwise, just like those Sunday winter afternoons. This one is a wrap around dress and the entire outfit looks like the dancing lady emoji. Which I also spoke about on my Instagram post. The dress has pretty frills at the edges that gives it a bohemian touch and I couldn’t find a better place to shoot this outfit too. The quaint little cafe amidst the busy streets of Bangalore is serene and dream like. Wonder how I never discovered this place since last 10 years. Shame on me!

I mix and matched few silver necklaces that was lying in my jewellery box to layer it to cover the deep neck that the dress had. Instead of heels or flats, I chose a pop of colour and wore a brick red brogues from Ajio. I obsessed with these brogues and try my level best to wear it whenever I can. It’s my favourite airport foot wear.

Like I mentioned in my earlier posts, I am impressed with Zaful’s collection and how they manage to stay up to date with the current fashion trends at a very reasonable price. If you are travelling and don’t have a huge budget, Zaful is your best friend for quirky swim wear, robes, lounge wear and bags too. In my free time, I just scroll and surf through Zaful and window shop.

Affordable Way To Revamp Your Bedroom

It’s festive season when guests come home quite often. But that not the only reason you need to beautify your home. Revamping the house always lifts your mood and makes you feel satisfied.

Many people find it difficult to revamp and change the decor, especially when it comes to bedrooms. While some with a sizeable budget hire a decorator, others surf through the internet for more economical ideas. If you look at it closely, the process of revamping your bedroom isn’t as strenuous as it feels.

To ease your effort, here are some insights to change the way your bedroom looks.

The easiest way to refurbish your bedroom is by changing the bed sheets. Bed sheets are the most ideal and economical way of revamping your bedroom space. Try adding bright or fainty colours to change that slumber zone into a dreamy one. Punchy fabrics and expressive patterns are one of the best options. The smallest change brings a lot of difference. While there are many options to choose from online, I went for Spaces Bed Sheets for my bedroom. That’s because their crisp clean look automatically making the room look fresh. You could also experience with a splash of colours for a happy mood upgrade.




There was a time when I wondered why mothers or homeowners would go crazy for home decor shopping and bed sheets especially. I have come to that stage where I understand the importance of a good bed sheet, pillow and duvets. Investing in a good set of bed sheets is a self-care routine. Nothing rejuvenates your mind and body than coming back to beautifully tucked textured bed sheets. Unlike Bangalore weather, other cities go through extreme weather changes. The type of clothes you wear also changes with different seasons and the same should be the case with your bed sheets. The idea is to switch those bed sheets for warmer one because winter is here. Pastel pink and purple is the colour of the current season when it comes to bed sheets. If you are looking for them online, you can expect some thicker and darker shade fabrics this season. Like I mentioned earlier, add some abstract pieces to change the decor according to the bed covers and season. As easy as it can be and it gets easier with online shopping!

Gone were the days when you have to go all the way to the market or mall to shop for something you like. Now, you can sit back at home and scroll through a wide range of bed covers.

I hope this post helps you redecorate and reorganise your bedroom!

Five Telugu Action Movies You Must Watch

Action movies are not everyone’s cup of tea. Some call it violent and some call it art. No matter which side you are on, you know it’s not easy to fight those bad guys, run around the city lanes to save yourself, parkour around or coming up with the amazing punch line to scare the bad guys. Indian cinema has a crazy amount of action movies that are under rated. Especially, when it comes to south Indian action movies, the masses simply love it for the entertainment value they provide.

If you are a person who loves action movies then this is your guide to five must watch action movies of Telugu Cinema that you should watch at any cost.

  1. Aravinda Sametha Veera Raghava


If you are a fan of Jr NTR’s action movies, then this one is a must watch. The movies is a different take on a similar story. Aravinda Sametha is about two rivals in a village who politically want to win and rule over the village.But things turn around and backfire. This is a perfect example of a good value aka Paisa Vasool movie. Jr NTR really worked to build a muscular physique for this movie and shines in the action sequences, especially one sequence tht is set on a field.


  1. Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India



Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India is an intense film that is different from other Allu Arjun movies. It’s about an angry soldier who makes an unapologetic mistake. The film is a perfect combination of nationalism, family issues and a touch of romance. Romance which you can now find on Zee5. It features one of Allu Arjun’s best performances in recent times with his scenes with Arjun Sarja being a spectacular highlight.




  1. Aattagallu

I got a little selfish here and added Jagapathi babu’s movie (“I am a fan”). His acting skills are intense and quite promising. The movie otherwise wasn’t a big hit in the theatres. But this murder mystery movie surely deserves more attention for attempting something different in Telugu Cinema. The clash between Nara Rohit and Jaggu Bhai was a treat to watch.




  1. Supreme



This movie is a perfect example of how a smart director can work around masala genre cliches to make a great entertainer. Supreme is extremely fast and doesn’t leave you idle even for a second. Sai Dharam Teja’s brilliant acting skill is delightful and impressive. Apart from the action sequences, the comedy scenes in the movie too stand out for their great entertainment value.




  1. BahuBali

The biggest movie of Indian Cinematic History. PERIOD!!! The fight sequences are a visual treat for our sore eyes and something that an Indian audience never saw before. The set pieces, the weapons, the villains, everything speaks volumes about the production values that are of the highest quality. The war sequences are the best of its kind. Extravagant and an upscale movie today!
So are there any movie that you would have included in this list. Let me know in the comments section below.
