Onam Special Ft. Mahatriya

Hailing from a city called Palakkad which lies almost on the line dividing Tamil Nadu and Kerala has its own strange perks! We get to celebrate Keralite festivals without looking like a South Indian going on Karva Chauth fasts (er…yes I have some such friends! :P)

Of Indian Prints and Western Twirls ~ Ft. Tadka by Madhu

My favourite kinda clothes are the ones which resonate Indian but come with a small western twist to them! That’s why Madhu’s Tadka popped from the hundreds of other vendors on Instagram for me!

Give it up for the Jumpsuit! 

Hi my lovely readers! Do you remember me ranting on multiple occasions about how a jumpsuit never ever ever fits me perfectly? Well I atlast got my hands on the jumpsuit which was destined to be mine recently and I couldn’t wait to show it to you guys 😍 so here we go! 

   

    

 I styled the jumpsuit with two statement pieces. One of which was this golden messenger bag which I absolutely love! My next style was :

   
    

   
My second statement piece was this absolutely beautiful silk blazer. I loved this look more because it added so much definition to the waistline and gave me some shape 😃

Outfit details : Jumpsuit – Forever21, Bag – BagsbyAnqi, Blazer – VESA Online, Heels -Westside 

Hope you guys enjoyed this short and sweet post 😃 I realised I was so caught up in doing theme based posts that I was never doing simple outfit posts any more and that’s why this one ❤️ have a an amazing week ahead. Let’s hope it passes as quickly and painlessly as a strip of chocolate wax being pulled out 😜 Enjoy your day!  

  
 

   

Sprightly Sunday Inspiration

How would you react when someone says we met each other, really liked each other, I asked her out and ever since, we have been dating. You would probably say aww..cute!

Next, what would your reaction be if the person continued the story saying, before we actually got really knowing each other, we separately had a huge crush on each other for ten years but never got the nerve to take it forward but finally we are now together. You would probably be shocked, your awwww might be louder and shriller and you would end it with a multiple U-ed cute.

Now, the person adds : after less than a year of dating, I moved abroad and ever since, (3.5 years to be precise) we are in the happiest long distance relationship. You’d properly gag off the cuteness overload yeah?

That readers is how my boyfriend dramatically explains our love story to everyone. It’s hilarious how he builds up the momentum by strategically telling the story.

But this post is not about that. This post is about him! This post is about what an amazing person he is. This post is about how quirkishly sportive he is (he can break into a random dance in the middle of a crowded as hell mall just to make me laugh). This post is about how genuinely concerned he is about his girlfriend’s watchman’s baby daughter after she underwent a major surgery. This post is about how mad he is about winning, Kobe Bryant, spicy food, Shilpa and rosemilk equally! (See how deftly I added names there? Mine to be specific! Smooth!). This post is about how he thinks respecting parents and all elders is the coolest thing to do. This post is about how he thinks it a personal victory when he didn’t bog down to peer pressure of any sort. This post is about how dedicated he is to his basketball and undergoing a surgery to pursue his sport was nothing but a minor glitch for him. This post is about what a good human being and a friend he is and how he can become best friends with anyone right from rickshaw drivers to his physiotherapists.  This post is most importantly about how he is the most important reason why the herculean, dreaded by many long distance relationship has gone on so smoothly and about how he makes the whole wait so effing worth it.

Every time you leave, I give you a parting gift, a scrapbook, a picture, a surprise, something, anything and I know you love your surprises. This time I was wasn’t ready to let you go. So I had planned nothing. And I saw you were sad about that. This post is my little parting gift to you. Know that you are my true hero and an inspiration to me and many more.
Here’s to us, to our amazing vacation and to many more to come! I’ll adore you forever and perhaps a day more!

He’s here :D

Guyssssss!! Aaaaahhhh!! 💟💟💟 picture this : you have a 60 day countdown because you are seeing the love of your life after two frikkin long years, the days are in no hurry (wonder how they act so lazy during countdowns and are so hyperactive when the vacation after the countdown starts :?) and after a tiresome 58 days you are down to 2 days. The last ten days go exceptionally slowly with you checking the date and the time on your computer calendar every five minutes (no I’m not exaggerating guys!). Anyway, I was in the last but one but oneth day of my countdown 😝. It was Friday and after a longgggg day at work I’m walking towards my car in the rather empty parking lot when I suddenly sense a movement behind me and the persons gait is all too familiar but I’m not able to put a finger on who it was..so I do the turn look back, not realizing who it was, so look in front and get sooooo shocked and look back again routine we are all too familiar with! My boyfriend had me surprised shocked blown out of my wits all at the same time by arriving two days before schedule. Yaah yaah HiFi!!! He’s here 😍!!!!

BEST.SURPRISE.EVER. 😍 Happy holidays people. I know I’m going to have an amazing one 💝

DWYL! LWYD!

Life is too short. It gets shorter because half the time we live to reach some particular eventful day in the near or distant future willing and praying that the days in between run by in a whirl. In the end, the eventful day/days come and go in a blur, the days leading to it run by blurrier and we move on to wishing for a next day many months/years later to come soon again spending the days in between pretty unhappily.

Phew…did those last couple of lines make sense? 😜 So basically what I’m saying is, we DONT live to appreciate the moment. We live to reach certain points in our life and when we actually reach that point I doubt we atleast take in that moment and feel happy rather than setting our next target hastily.

* Live for the moment. At least try. (Note to myself : DEFINITELY try!!!)
* Do what you love love what you do! Because that’s the only way you will love the present and want to live in it! (so now you know the expansion of my abbreviated title 😜)
* Live to achieve the things you love and you dream of! (Mom wants you to be an engineer and you want to take up arts? Arts it is! Be rebellious! ;))

What an interesting quote! And such a cute pictures too ! 😍:)

One Post, two Life through the Lens Challenges

I have somehow missed both the life through the lens challenges though I have been thinking I read every post of Mommyx4boys (oh…fyi…when I visited her page now for a link back I see a third pending challenge. But that can wait :P)
So the two topics I missed were Miracle and Love. Let’s go one by one. 🙂

Miracle
This one’s a photo. And the story behind it is the Miracle.

That’s me holding my Chartered Accountant Membership Certificate on passing the course. You must be wondering why this photo here, it’s because passing the course is a bloody miracle in itself 😀 The pass percentage was a frugal 7% when I gave my exams. 7 of every 100 clear. Miracle or what?!? 🙂

Love
This is a pencil sketch I did for Love. A slightly different interpretation but yes!

image

Nothing is as genuine as the love dogs show and I think I’ve done a good job bringing out that emotion. I had a rough idea of the kind of picture I wanted to draw and Google threw up this amazing idea 😀 what do you think guys?
And thank you once again http://mommyx4boys.wordpress.com for these kickass challenges!
