Hourglass Angel Active Band Waist Trainer Review!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Monday, 11th April 2016

Hello everyone!

As I mentioned in one of my Instagram posts, I have started an elaborate waist training regime. I am glad to see so many requests on my social media from you guys to share my workout routine and review my waist trainers. Today I will be reviewing the Hourglass Angel Active Band Waist Trainer by Amia.

“Waist Training” is a relatively recent phenomenon and was popularized by celebrities like Kim Kardashian. I was a little sceptical about hopping on the bandwagon at first but I must say, I am glad I took my leap because I have never been happier with my waist size.

I have been using a set of 3 different waist trainers to achieve my waist size and the one I am talking about today is actually a workout band.

This one by Hourglass Angel has been my best friend to workout with!

Here are some of the features of this product :

  • Latex core for firm, comfortable support
  • Cotton inner lining
  • Hook-and-eye closures
  • Flexi-boning
  • Firm compression

It works by increasing thermal activity stimulating perspiration in the midsection which slowly burns away the excess fat. It is designed to wear while working out but can also be worn under clothing. To be honest, I prefer a thinner waist trainer to wear under my clothes. This one is thick and firm so it is great to boost my workouts. If you suffer from a lot of loose, saggy fat though, you may want a firmer waist trainer under your clothes, for which this one is perfect!

However, before you jump on the trend, there are a few things to keep in mind. It should not be worn while doing ab exercises as it may constrict breathing. I love wearing mine while running and also while I do other cardio and weight exercises as it seriously holds my midsection in place and tones it while I work the rest of my body.

Also, keep in mind that this is not a magic tool. It is meant to aid your waist training routine, boost your workout and provide extra help to achieve that hourglass shape. You can definitely wear it under clothing to achieve a more streamlined appearance but the real result will be visible if you follow it with a kickass workout routine and the right diet.

Having said that, I have been working out for years but I have never had a smaller waist than I have now. I do keep a check on my diet and avoid sugar wherever I can but I have definitely seen a major result in my abdomen after I started exercising with my workout band. I like to wear mine 3-4 times a week, as many workouts as I can squeeze in seven days and I will usually wear it for about 60 minutes.

If you are someone who is just starting out, you may want to start with some high-intensity cardio workouts first. After your body is accustomed to that level of exercise, you can easily wear your waist band to step-up your hourglass game. Having a clean, nutritious diet is always step in the right direction not only for your waist size, but for your overall health as well.

To sum up, I am very happy with my workout band. If used regularly and correctly coupled with regular exercise and the right diet, you are sure to see some amazing results!

I hope you found this review helpful. Don’t forget to check out Hourglass Angel for all sorts of waist training equipment including conventional waist trainers, workout bands, corsets and other shape wear.

OOTD – Party Peplum with Zumbasa

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Friday, 4th September 2015

Hello everyone!

If you’ve been following me for a bit, you know my love for peplum! ❤

Zumbasa3

I don’t care if it’s out of fashion, I’ll continue to wear it till I think it’s pretty! It is so forgiving (i.e. hides your food baby) and comfortable to wear. So, you can comprehend that when I found this stunning white dress on Zumbasa, I was blown away!

Dresses are so easy to style and only need the right accessories to take your look to the next level. This one already comes with a gold metallic belt that can be used with other things in your closet too!

I decided to take the all-white route to keep the look fresh and clean and styled the pretty tube dress with sky high white pumps. I wanted the jewelry to complement my gold belt so I wore a minimalist necklace, some fun rings and a chain bracelet in gold. To add a little bit of extra something, I threw on a pair of heel chains on my feet which gives my plain white pumps a whole new feel!

The best part is that I have a discount code for you! You can shop whatever you want from Zumbasa and get a cool discount by using the code : “AISHWARYA15” at checkout! Happy Shopping! 😀

OOTD – Edgy Red

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Monday, 29th June 2015

Hello everyone.

Today’s post is about the outfit that I wore to the Jabong Beauty Blogger Meet.

Seen on me is a gorgeous red floral dress that I designed. I love simple, sweet and girly summer dresses in this hot weather. I purchased the cloth from my local store and designed this understated dress with quarters sleeves and a skater style. Such dresses are incredibly comfortable and look super cute on their own but I wanted to take it a step further with accessories.

I decided to edge up an otherwise girl next door dress with a broad belt and gladiator heels. A black tote was my bag of choice to carry all my essentials in. I especially love how the heart sunglasses match so perfectly with my dress!

OOTD – Red & Leopard!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 5th April 2015

Hello everyone!

Somehow, I feel like OOTDs are the most fun post to do on the blog. It has been a little nippy in Delhi due to the unforeseen rains but I’m not complaining! I’m enjoying the chilly weather and happily continue to live in my trusty blazers.

I have been looking everywhere for the perfect pair of gold metallic pumps and when I spotted them in Zara, you can imagine my level of excitement! I love leopard and red together as it makes a bold statement and I always accessorize this combination with touches of gold. I added this fun cage cuff and a statement necklace to match my pointy gold pumps and threw on a grey blazer to keep me toasty!

Here are the pictures :

OOTD – Monochrome Diaries!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Friday, 27th March 2015

Hello everyone!

I’m back with another outfit. It is suddenly so hot here that it freaks me out to think how much hotter it’s going to get. Well, as you all may know by now, I’m a savvy online shopper and love to find amazing pieces at the comfort of my own home (in pyjamas of course!) and a few of my favourite sites to shop from are StalkBuyLove, FabAlley, 20Dresses and StyleTag. They sell ridiculously cool pieces at decent prices and it is always convenient to have your stuff delivered right where you live.

This outfit is inspired by monochrome, so much monochrome that I’ve seen on the runways, on the streets, in the glossies et al. I love how black and white looks chic and spells class. The top I’m wearing is actually an off-shoulder bodysuit. I’ve been obsessed with leotards lately as they stay where they belong and don’t bunch up on the sides. The striped maxi skirt with a slit adds a little something extra to the look but the black hat is my favourite part of the outfit! I love how the orange lips bring a pop to the otherwise monochrome theme going on. Here are the pictures :

OOTD – Animal Instinct!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 15th March 2015

Hello everyone,

It is majorly weird that March is so chilly here in New Delhi. Usually around this time, we want to douse ourselves in icy water to save us from getting baked in the sun! That is why it is almost unbelievable that it is still blazer weather.

This outfit is definitely appropriate for this confusing climate as the jacket can be taken off for a more breathable outfit during the day while the boots keep my feet warm. I love how the soft khaki high waisted pants complement the earthy browns in my leotard and jacket without being too loud. Also, I love leotards or bodysuits (whatever you call them) as they stay nicely tucked in without bunching up on the sides.

OOTD – Monochrome Magic!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Tuesday, 3rd March 2015

Hello everyone!

I’m back with another outfit! I have decided to do separate posts per outfit now because that way I’ll be able to show you all the wonderful details of my look.

I recently came across this stunning pair of lace pants from Amazon. As soon as I laid my eyes on it, I knew that I had to have it in my closet and I wanted to build a sophisticated monochrome look around it. I love how the animal print top creates a mixed pattern look and the blazer was just a perfect finishing touch to this whole outfit. Since it is still chilly in India, I decided to go with booties instead of snazzy sandals to keep me toasty. The bag used here is actually a sling but I prefer using it like a clutch,

Don’t be fooled! This is not really lace but rather just a print that unbelievably resembles the pattern which is much more practical and comfortable in daily life!
