Hello! Welcome to beauty and the suitcase blog. Thank you for taking a moment from your busy life and getting to know us. ‘Beauty & the Suitcase’ is conceived by us Amrita & Shivaji. We are a Bangalore based couple who have decided to share our love for travel, beauty & fashion in a platter of storytelling. Married in 2014 and having been met each other in 2007 we are inseparable duo who stick together even if our world of interests are miles apart.


I’ m Amrita, the beauty and story teller behind B&TS. Worked as a techie with IT MNCs and switched to strategy & management post MBA.  I love story telling, makeup (guilty of buying loads & loads of makeup) and luxury travel. I am also a passionate dancer, nail art junkie, ex-martial arts student (currently kick boxing for fitness), shoes lover, foodie, fashion lover, junk jewelry collector and crazy online shopper.When I don’t drool over make up or get dolled up and plan holidays, I work with a MNC as a specialist & strategic EA. Besides being a workaholic, I am also a selfie-hollic who never misses a chance to ‘pout & click’(but NO I don’t own a selfie stick).

Skin: Combination to oily skin type. MAC NC 44.5 skin tone

Hair : Bouncy/Wavy hair with oily scalp and normal ends.
