Sartorial guide for transitioning into Autumn

S5

Hi Lovelies! Are you ready for another manic Monday? Last week was amazing! I managed to get few things off my long pending to do list. I finally had the courage to face my phone disaster. After all, it wasn’t as bad I imagined to be. Apple replaced my water damaged phone with a brand new IPhone 6 for half the price. That means exciting new stories on snapchat and track full of selfies on Instagram. Haha… just kidding 🙂 The second best thing was booking my travel to Dubai and India. So, If you in Dubai and want to catch up for a coffee or dance, call me!

Here is guide to look effortlessly chic for autumn. Get ready to stock up on those timeless and weather friendly pieces. Fitted turtlenecks, trench coats, dark denims, high boots and faux fur are some of the pieces that never go out of style.

Colour coordinating/one colour suit

Colour coordinating is the next big trend and it’s here to stay. Prada AW2015 girls looked young, vibrant and very lady like. Double breasted Salmon pink suit was my favourite look from the show. Well, I did manage to get my hands on this dream suit without going bankrupt. Seriously, thank god for TOPSHOP.

Outwear

Do you understand the feeling when you not sure which coat to wear? And 90% of the time end up feeling too cold or too hot? Transitioning into autumn is always going to be the difficult one. Choosing the right coat is the key to keep you safe from the unexpected showers to dropping temperatures. Long autumn trench to heavier leather jackets are my personally favourite. They are easy to layer underneath and super easy to get ride of if needed.

Layer me baby

The best thing about autumn/winter is I get to bring out my turtlenecks. Cold weather mean only one thing and one thing. Bring on the turtlenecks! They play a very important part in layering this autumn/winter outfits.

Cold feet

Everyone wants cosy feet during this weather, but this shouldn’t mean compromising on your style. This winter we have so much to choose from. Few of my favourites are thigh high, ankle sock boots, fury feet and Mary Jane.

The hush before the winter. Happy fall everyone 🙂

Good Morning lovers! Guess what… the dream team is back! After powering suiting for the first time we couldn’t wait to work together. This time around we bringing something different and real. So welcome to our world.

My name is Sita Sunar and I am a stylist. My life is anything but boring. People seek my help to re-vamp their wardrobe, find the perfect dress for an occasion or simply like to try something different. Everyday is an adventure working as personal stylist. I love working with clothes and I do not dread Monday.  Blogging is my escape and an hobby. Here I get to say and do what I like. Since, my blog is about fashion and fitness. I have to be committed to it. Well, there are days when I fall for temptations. Well, It’s the discipline that teaches me to get back at it.  My typical day will start around 6.30-7am. If I do not have to work on my blog, I go for a quick 20mins run, shower and get dressed for work. Monday mornings is when I have to finish my blog post (like today), post it, 10 minutes yoga, shower and get ready for work. As I mentioned my job is anything but boring. I meet at least 10 to 15 new people everyday. I personally love working with real women who need my help. I finish work around 7ish and run straight home. Coming home to my beautiful cats is the best thing ever. I take about half hour break, have a quick snack and go to the gym. Well, things are bit different if I have planned some after work activities. Since, I have to work the most weekends. I plan my nights out according to my mood. I like to spend my days off working on my blog. It could be from shooting an outfit, working on a fitness video to finding a new inspiration.

If you are an aspiring fashion Stylist, this what you need to know:

1)It’s all about the internship: Intern for a stylist, become their assistant. This industry works by recommendations.

2) Build you work: In the beginning it is hard to make easy money. Your priority should be about getting your self out there.

3) Research and keep your self updated: Researching different looks, making appointments, gathering all the pieces for a look. It’s a lot of screen time!” Knowing the industry and what’s new is important.

4) Be confident and know yourself: Last but not least. Know your style and strength and don’t be scared to show it off.

Hope this helps you to get started.

Have a lovely week and see you soon.

Love,

Cocolett

Don’t dream of it. Train for it.

Are you surprised to see me twice a week. Well, I am trying my best to post twice a week. Preferably, I would like to make 1 fashion/outfit and 1 fitness/nutrition post a week. Even though I workout everyday, it’s still too much work to make a full post. However, I have decided to get bit more organised and be affair to both my babies.

Well, first of all I would like to thank everyone for your emails & FB messages for following my journey. I have been active for almost 5years and it’s been about 2 years that I have taken fitness & health serious. It’s nice to hear that my journey inspires most of you to get active and be more committed to health.

I work out for the unexpected results and benefits. Working out gives me sound sleep and realises stress. Slogging through a few miles on the ‘mill can be tough, but it’s worth the effort! Exercise releases endorphins, which create feelings of happiness and euphoria. I usually end a tough workout with a hot shower and sauna, but maybe we should be breaking out the colored pencils instead. A heart-pumping gym session can boost creativity for up to 2 hours afterwards

So, day before was my day off and I dedicated the entire day training, shooting my workouts and finally editing and writing all about it. This is my first workout video for the blog and I wanted to be special. I had so many ideas and so much to share. However, I did’t want this blog to showcase what I can do. In fact, I wanted to make this about you. So, here I am sharing my first video for total body workout. This goes out to absolute beginners working out from home.

Push ups

Push ups are the most effective and only excersie that works all the major mascule group at the same time. If you have never perform one of these bad boys than I suggest you start with the modified version of these. And slowly progress to the full push up.

Plank

The plank is one of the best exercises for a toned stomach. Because it works all the muscles in your core it is more effective.

Bench Dip

Ladies, is the best is the best exercise for jiggle free arms.

Floor bridge with leg extension

Strengthens the back, buttocks, and hamstrings. Improves circulation of blood. Helps alleviate stress and mild depression

Squats

If you’re looking for a powerful way to boost your overall fitness and get some serious results— fast— from your workout routine, look no further than performing squatting exercises.

Lunges

Lunges are super easy to perform and work incredibly effective . Lunges are one of those exercises people either love or hate. There is however one powerful reason to love them: they sculpt a lovely tush. They also make your legs incredibly strong, which is a bonus as well.

If you want to challenge your self than switch this sequence into interval training. Start with a easy 20mins run and perform each of these without rest. Finish the circuit and rest for 1 minute.

Hope this helps you get started and reach your goals. Feel free to leave your comments and if you would like to know more.

No matter how you feel. Get up, dress up, show up, and never give up.

Love

Cocolett

It’s nearly 5 years ago that I first went on a run using Nike Plus app. A friend of mine introduced  me to this whole new world of running. My first run was bad! I was slow. I didn’t know how to pace myself. I didn’t have the stamina and my thoughts controlled my performance. Most of all, I didn’t know how to control my breathing or right way to breath while running. It took me while to train.

WORD “Don’t practice to get it right. Practice until you can’t get it wrong.” So, that’s exactly what I did. I am not afraid to go out for a run anytime of day or night. I have run through sunshine, rain and winter.

So if you are a beginner runner or interested in getting started? This is what you need to know.

1) Mostly running is an argument between part of you that wants to STOPS and part of you that wants to keep GOING! First few days will be more exhausting because you would be physically and mentally tired. Keep reminding yourself why you started in first place.

2) I have struggled a lot to master the right breathing technique. If your confused and not sure if you have to breath through the mouth or nose? It’s very simple. When we’re running, feeding our muscles the oxygen they need is ver important. So, breathing through the mouth is the most effective way to inhale and exhale oxygen.

3) Last but not least. If you have decided to take running seriously than it’s important you invest into right running gear. I am in love with my Nike Lunar glide4. These shoes have taken me through the mountains of Nepal, snow, rain and sunshine.

Well, this is one of my favourite topic I wanted to write about. So it was hard for me to keep it short and sweet. However, If you need to know more or think I should be writing more specifics? Feel free to Hola at me and leave your comment!

Unless you puke, faint or die. Keep going!

Have a healthy week!
