In a vacation mood!


, , , , ,

Maybe I miss my long hair… * a touch of nostalgia* or maybe I really like the setting.. maybe it’s just the fact that the long weekend is round the corner and am ready for it, either way I wanted to post this!  :P I really liked this look I put together while on a mini vacation.. Just a basic stripe tee paired with shorts and a chunky neck piece to add some interest. …which reminds me.. I need to pick my outfits for this weekend :D Happy wednesday! IMG_2137IMG_2006 IMG_2007


Hi5 Mondays


, , , , , , , , ,

Hi you guys,

Monday is the perfect way to correct last week’s mistakes and relive fun moments ;) Here are my top 5 from last week..

1. As much as I love cooking indian food, the trek to Queens to stock up on supplies is really not my favorite! But when I do go, I make it a point to eat chaat at Samudra chaat house! 20140823_1550472. Bubblegum pink nails can make a dull week a little less dull! :P20140822_0914523. Short hair+ bad hair day warrants a head band! It’s back to school time ;) Photo on 2014-08-21 at 09.214. I got a little adventurous in the kitchen and whipped up these gulab jamuns- an indian sweet that makes you want to overeat :D 2014-08-23 23.31.315. I had no idea there was a beautiful cathedral tucked away in times square. Was walking around and stumbled unto Church of saint mary the virgin. Beautiful! Have a wonderful week! Truth be told am counting down to the weekend already ;)

A touch of Lace!


, , , , , ,

One fine day I woke up and decided I was done with being a slacker and to dress a little more like a lady if not act like one.;)  So I picked a gathered skirt with a touch of lace paired with a simple t shirt, a string of pearls and cream ballet flats. I wore it through the day, then got tired, changed into an oversized t shirt and a pair of shorts and decided being a lady wasn’t for me :P However a little dress-up once in a while hurt nobody! :D Happy wednesday! lace

Hi5 Mondays!

I am having the worst monday since last monday :P But I am braving it on with a smile and some candy! And what was I up to last week? Some fun things :D

1. Cooked up some singapore style noodles. Basically an easy way to clean up the fridge so recipes are void :P

2. Wore blue liner for the first time! It looked less crazy than I imagined :P


3. Wore matchy sweatshirts because why not? :P ( Very mature I know!)


4.  Been reading this book by Kiran Desai. It is sort of sad but yet so well written!

5. Tasted this yummy middle eastern ice cream called Kashta at Cedar Pastry! Sticky and delicious.

Have a good week ahead  and be the reason someone smiles today:)

Simply shorts!

New York summer has been surprisingly mild this time( Please stay this way). There’s a mellow sunshine all day that makes it perfect to stay outdoors, lounge in a park with a fat book sipping on iced tea… in a pair of easy shorts.. the baggier the better! :D This has been my lazy weekend uniform…I just need to keep remembering to reapply sunscreen :P Enjoy your friday you’ll!

2. Always a sucker for red lipstick! Finally bough the NARS heatwave ! :DHEATWAVE

3. Stationary shopping at AI friedmans! I bought a sketchbook and have told myself I am going to draw a little more often:)

4. Found this great way to store tiny earrings which I usually scarmble to find in the morning! I have a few EOS almost finished tins lying this is motivation to finish those up ;) 

5. Found a great vegetarian friendly gem tucked in a bustling times square street! Green symphony is a great place to grab a quick healthy bite! 

Happy monday!  Let’s all eat more chocolate ;)
