Hi Hello Howdy!

Honestly mondays should be optional but since that is NEVER going to happen, we shall make smiling through the day compulsory! :D At least us folks in the USA will have a long weekend so that’s something? ;) Here’s my high Five from last week :)

1. Made some home made pound cake to have with my non existent coffee 20150624_2152102. Look who I saw on the way to work! 3. Just finished reading this book by Junot Diaz!! I struggled with trying to understand the spanish but that’s what google translate is for :P 4. A quick trip to Florida… on work! Trust me one day it shall be for leisure only!! 20150625_1133375. Hands down the best taco salad I have eaten thus far.. please head to Tacquitos Mexico for your fill! 20150626_194940Have a fabulous week ahead. BE HAPPY AND SMILE!

White for the Win!

A crisp white shirt, a pair of white khakis, a spotless white tee, an elegant white sundress… these things sound so appealing on paper but when I try on something white it goes all magnifying class on me! ;) ( doesnt help one bit that I am that klutz who will spill a bowl of salsa on myself the day I wear something new/white/light )What do I say except I like hiding behind a black cloud but unfortunately some days are not worth all the sweat to look a little more slimmer. I decided to dive in and embrace my inner polar bear by pairing a white tee with a pouffy patterned skirt balanced out with some neutral accessories! :) I think I will pack this outfit for my yet-to-even-begin-saving-for european vacation :P What do you think? IMG_5854 IMG_5857 IMG-20150606-WA0005

If you thought mondays were the worst, try having a birthday on monday where you are expected to show up at work :| Like turning a year older weren’t sucky enough! Anyyyywaaaayyy at least there’s cake??! ;P Here’s last week’s top five! :)

1. Joined a kickboxing class last week :D Is that a clap of thunder I hear? :P 20150615_1932192. What happens when your supermarket has great deals on tofu dogs?? We make a boatload of veggie hash! :D 20150620_2211463. I donated/threw a bunch of skincare/ make up stuff to the garbage gods!  Finally I am happy to report that the mess is now not as bad! :D 20150621_1854144. Whatever the green thumb is, it eludes me, the only plants that survive in my household are cactii lol but am going to try my luck with these african violets! 20150621_1856435. Not a burger person because frankly there’s one sad excuse of a veggie burger at most places but MY HOUSE burgers, sheepsheadbay had a really great black bean avacado burger!!! GOOOO! PS: I accept birthday presents in comments and likes! :D Have a superb weeek fellas!

Long, Light, Layered!

Ever tried living near the beach? One minute you are perfectly happy walking around in shorts ; then come twilight and you are reaching for a cardigan or wrap to keep away those chills. This long-ish cardigan/throw on/long garment that hangs loosely over you to hide them muffin tops is perfect for this exact reason! Also it allows you to get away with wearing gym pants and still look like a half decent person :P

PS: Pardon the fuzzy pics, my phone camera is terrible to say the least! Happy thursday! IMG-20150530-WA0004IMG-20150530-WA0012IMG-20150530-WA0011

Hello People!

Mondayyyy is here.. which means we need a double dose of inspiration. Enter pinterest with this quote –

 Never let things you want make you forget the things you have

If this doesn’t make you feel better maybe some chocolate will? I was hoping you would say this blog might ahhhh… since that is a stretch let’s look at my top 5 things from the past week:P.

1. Sometimes I need a little reminder! ( PS: TOOO MUCH PINTERESTTT!!!)20150609_2025582. The perks of living by the beach during summer are endless! One more is getting to go to the Smorgasburg at Coney Island! It’s on until the 22nd so get here for some finger food, salty air and quirky art! :) 3. I went to sephora to buy my husband a perfume and look what I got free for my birthday! :D4. I now have a giant wok for all my stir fry needs! All I need is a cooking class :P 20150610_2040575. Caught jurassic world over the weekend! Dinosaur fans and Chris pratt fans shall rejoice! :)Have a wonderful week ahead! May your clothes be comfy, your coffee be strong and your monday be shoooort and painless!:D

Paisley Please!

It’s been a while since I wore a. A dress b. color c. A print d. specifically a paisley print so when I received this dress( as part of a goodie box :D) for my anniversary from the in-laws, I knew I had a blog – worthy closet addition!:) Fitted dresses and indian snacks don’t really go together but what’s fashion if it doesn’t involve keeping your stomach sucked in ( at least for photos) :P Have a wonderful day and wear some color people!! ;)IMG_5834IMG_5833IMG_5832

Hi5 Mondays: Of summers, snow cones & sweet memories

Tags

, , , , , ,

Greetings Earthlings!

I welcome you all to yet another edition of HI5 mondays where I curate my life’s mundane and crazy! :D My week alternated between awesome and bomb diggity which should hopefully help sustain me through this week. Here’s what I accomplished(whew!)

1. Summer is finally here though – which means whites, sunnies, incessant grumbling about sweating and going crazy with your phone’s filters:P 2015-06-08 17.10.05

2. Ice cones with cloyingly sweet syrup? Sign meee upp!!IMG-20150606-WA00063. Since I already have a natural tan( :P) I do not need any more of that shiz! Slathering on the sunscreen without looking like a freshly used wok is hardddddd which is why I love this tinted matte version from Cotz! :) 4. I have no idea who has been asking time to fly around in a jet but around this time last year I was in India getting married! :D Also I had such looooonngg hair!! Pardon me while I drown my sorrows in a tub of yoghurt and sigh woefully at my lob!  IMG_1449-15. I am usually too lazy to make rotis/naan from scratch. I just buy them from the frozen aisle and do the heating routine!  But I see the appeal in making them fresh :) Plus spilt flour is sooo much fun to clean up :P IMG-20150607-WA0000Hope all of you have a great week ahead! :D Smile away!

Overalloverallover!!

Who over the age of 25 in their right mind would buy a pair of overalls – unless they are thinking” utilitarian” or are built like a super model (or maybe having a mid -life crisis :P) ? – This girl right here! I always coveted a pair ever since I outgrew the denim ones I had at age 5. But somehow the “50% less fat” version of the overall always eluded me until I found these at H&M – It somehow made feel less guilty about getting rid of them incase I hated them! Are they the most flattering on my body? Hell no! But I love how easy it is to throw on, though the menfolk in the pictures seem less than thrilled posing next to giant baby! :P

PS: If you are a water guzzler like me, remind yourself to drink less water when you have these on :D IMG_5673 IMG_5671 IMG_5675 IMG_5676

 

Hi5 Missing months!

Tags

, , , , , ,

The word press app on my ipad has been mocking me silently for being a total slacker these past two months and not even attempting to churn out a post once a week like I used to :( I have a bunch of feels writing after this giant break (I admit I have been using the backspace key more than I’d like but I do deserve that ;) ) – For a while I even considered saying my goodbyes and shuttering this page… but believe it or not a lot of my readers/friends kept asking me when I was going to write again! Also I think I did miss it a lot more than I thought I would… so here I am back to what I do best – BANTER!! :)

So instead of a typical HI5 monday post, I thought of doing a snapshot of the last few weeks of my existence! :)

1. I moved to a new house – you can imagine the chaos that comes with this but it gave me the perfect excuse to throw out all the hand me down furniture from my student days and redecorate! I think I may be embracing acting like an adult:P

IMG-20150430-WA00002. Been doing some traveling on and off! Most recently chicago- I would actually consider moving here if it weren’t for the 7 months of living in a refrigerator ! -_-3. Hanging out with the family of course!IMG-20150524-WA00174. We now have a new addition – Please say hello to Recker – my brother’s not so lil puppy!IMG_5634 5. Been doing an awful lot of cooking! Most recently I made my own seitan from scratch! :D Hope this week is good to us! And yes you’ll will see more of me :D

 

 

Spring is a lie!

Hello World,

It’s become quite common for me to go missing for extended periods of time only to return with a random post! :P It’s just that I have so much going on here( don’t we all) and I am just lazy in general? Anyway the first day of spring came and went and while it is ideal to walk around wearing a bunch of color, the reality was we were drenched IN SNOW believe it or not and automatically my hands  went to a grey and black outfit! Sigh, Will the real spring please stand up? ;)  IMG_5180IMG_5175IMG_5174IMG_5178
