One Tadka Martini please!

Now that the caption got you all curious, let me tell you this post has nothing to do with cooking, it has nothing to do with drinking and no! it has nothing to do with creative naming either (though I must say I’m mighty proud of “Tadka Martini” Patent material right? Loljk!)

This new year I vow to push my ass and….

1. Start being judicious about them finances (the problems they create towards the month end…deadly! O.o)

image

2.  Start taking care of my skin. ( World War III : Shilpa vs Acne!)

3. Start shopping on a “oh that’s a versatile piece and I know I want it- go to store – find the blessed piece – scamper back home” basis rather than the “oh my salary is credited lemme aimlessly stroll into the mall – oh I like this oh I like that oh I like the ENTIRE SHOPPP – impulse binge buy every thing I lay eyes on” basis.

3. Read more. Actually let’s make it measurable! Read 12 good books – one a month! (Ya ya blab about it in your stupid blog if that’s what motivation means to you..!) If I might entertain you with a picture which “summarizes” my reading habit.

4. Take up that fondant class I’ve been dreaming of for looong sometime. Get over the obsession ASAP by 1.knowing I suck at it or 2. Knowing I can give peek-a-boo cakes a run for its money *insert maniacal laugh* (or a pitiful gosh-this-chic-needs-help kinda laugh if you please!)

Hahaha ohhhh I crack myself up! 😂

Honestly the resolution list could go on guys but let’s keep it simple shall we 🙂  I’ve had a lovely 2014 with many ups and very few downs and I hope that’s how things panned out at your end too. Have a happy new year. Stay happy , stay safe , party hardest. Love y’all for loving me so much. Goodnight! 😍😍

Super-Suit for the Pseudo-Superhero

Have I told you guys about this before? I teach English through an NGO to kids from deprived backgrounds.

Now this NGO I work for is really cool. The people are crazy, fun and amazing. I’ve always felt like I’ve been around extremely judgmental people in life, but here you could be who you want and they will wholly embrace that. Which I love.. Does all this even make sense? Yes moving on! 😜

So for the first time after I joined, we had a small get together where close to 100 of us met up last weekend.

The theme for this party was Superheros We apparently were the real superheros doing better superhero-y things than the reel superheros… Get the drift? 😁

I decided to be Captain America and decided to spice things up by adding one additional piece of clothing! You’ll see.

Yes! A little flashback now 💫💫 my school sports day was one big flashy event. Selected students (the student council they call it) were asked to march in blazers-shirt-tie outfit. That blazer is usually bought from the cheapest shop possible because we used to wear them exactly once. So much so, my blazer is not even to be found. Burnt it perhaps! Lol 😂 (what! It was an eye sore Ok?) This blazer on the other hand is my sister’s. Since she finished school only two years back, this blazer was safely put away in the loft and I in a very fashion bloggerly style hunted it down because I decided a superhero outfit needed a blazer! How about that!?!

I wore this superhero-suit with plain blue jeans.

Bad photos as usual because..well..I didn’t have my photographer-work-friend to click them!

Could I entertain you with a wink and distract you from the otherwise shoddy photography and the background? 😎
Haha!! Have an amazing rest of the week y’all! 💝💝

P.S. 5 hours after publishing this post, I thought up of a better title so I went ahead and changed it from Super-suiting to Super-Suit for the Pseudo-Superhero 😜

The Week And Wishes!

Hi y’all! 💞 It has been an amazing week and half and there have been quite a few share worthy happenings 🙂
Diwali!
The most important Hindu festival is here and we spent it in style both at home and at work. The whole country celebrates the victory of good over evil by bursting crackers, lighting diyas and gorging on sweets. My office was also a scene of celebration.!

(The last picture would be me getting a high over crackers 😝)

Pencil Sketching
I’ve started taking doodling to new heights with these elaborate full paged doodles. I really enjoy doing them and the fact that they are absolutely useless doesn’t bother me one bit! 😂

image

image

And while most of them are pointless, I tried the Audrey Hepburn minimalist pencil sketching technique and I must say I’m quite happy. Can u tell the original from my drawing? Duh of course you can 😂😝

Bay Decoration
Festivals in general and important ones in specific solicit weeks upon weeks of ongoing celebrations. In that regard, Diwali is no different and our office just needs a reason to have fun, so we had a bay decoration contest (fun fun fun!) And our bay chose whatsapp to be the theme!
So this included our entire bay being dressed in shades of green and white, and each of our cubicles had a selfie of us with a “last seen at desk” time and a status! The entry to our bay even said “Join Group” and the exit said “Delete and Exit Group” LoL!
Needless to say, our bay won the contest. 😎 So in keeping with the theme, we did a Whatsapp Rangoli (Rangolis are patterns drawn on the floor and filled with color powder) Check out me and muh rangoli yo! 😜

Birthdays!
Having your mom’s and dad’s birthdays in the same week can have an acute slimming effect on your pocket. Hence I chose to go easy on my mom (just a cake! Sorry mom you kinda had everything you wanted. 😝) and go big on my dad’s gift – a watch!  And they both loved their gifts! 🙂

image

So!! What do you think? An awesome week or what? 🙂 hope you had and are still having an amazing week. Stay happy, stay safe and wish y’all a very Happy Diwali! May Good always win over Evil, may the Light always help those in Dark!

Birthday post :D

No posts from me for a while now ..but hey hey hey here I am 🙂
Vacation + birthday + weekend now that’s a win-win situation (actually a win-win-win situation .. Ha ha)
So had an amazing birthday put together by my friends in Chennai and family here in Mumbai. Both of them had arranged for a cake each (one death by chocolate cake and one cadbury dairymilk silk cake to be specific >:D ) The cake cutting was followed by a surprise lunch get together oraganised by the mommy and my aunt. I was so excited I looked like The Joker (a maniacal smile stuck to my face) thanks to which I was quite a sight in all the photos :/ … Hey in my defense, it was my first surprise party okayyy!! 😀
Whoever said “You dont choose your family, they are god’s gift to you” also said “you dont get to choose your relatives, that’s why god created friends” 😀 and I sure seem to have the best of both worlds dont you think? 🙂
