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

Hello Earthlings!

One hour less of sleep on a monday is not the best way to begin the week but I survived :D The upbeat mood could be the slightly better weather maybe? Either way I hope it continues to stay this way. Here’s my top 5 from the week that whizzed by!

1. Had this giant salad from Chopt! I am not much of a salad lover but this one was just fantastic! Likely making this a weekly thing :D 20150306_134846_resized2. Strolled around central park that looks like winter wonderland over the weekend. :Dimagejpeg_1_resized3. Painted my nails a pretty pink in anticipation of SPRING!!20150309_093143_resized4. I am on a kinda- sorta- high fat diet now which sounds ridiculous but it isnt really :P I made these mascarapone vanilla fat bombs to snack on! :D 20150308_182156_resized5. Bought myself a salad spinner to try and make salads like chopt? What was I thinking? :PHave a wonderful week you’ll and try those fat bombs at home :)

Skirting Around!

Spring is in 20 days or so I heard but clearly NY weather has missed the memo. We had a bunch of snow over the weekend ; not to mention my puffer coat hasn’t had a break since December! :P So imagine my surprise when I picked out a skirt with semi sheer stockings to wear one day… in a moment of sheer bravado! ;) I regretted it in exactly 19 mins and pulled on another pair of wool socks over these but not before I clicked a picture :DIMG_5238 IMG_5240IMG_5241Photo on 2015-02-13 at 12.51 #3

Hello Everyone!

It looks like I should simply rename my blog”Hi5 Mondays” because that is all I seem to be writing! ;) :\ which is kind of sad but it could be worse? Anyway last week Prat and I completed 5 years of being together so we took off to celebrate :D Here’s what I did!

1. Brazos Bend state park is a nice little day trip from Houston. We enjoyed acting like wildlife photographers, hiking and spotting birds, critters and gators! :P20150221_150822_resized2. I have never eaten quite a meal like this in a loooonnnggg time! Yummy food at Maharaja Bhog20150220_222934_resized3. I now have my very own pot of fresh flowers ( Courtesy: The husband) at my desk! :)20150220_105927_resized4. I make these every week to snack on! I call them power balls :P – raw oats, nuts, agave, raisins, coconut flakes and cashew butter in a blender. Chill and shape into balls and voila! :) 20150208_174108_resized5. Love this hand cream from L’Occitane and its always fun” smelling the roses” :P Have a wonderful week you guys! I am headed to warmer weather this week and sooo look forward to the change! Take that NY :P

Hi5 Mondays!

Hello World!

How has monday been treating you guys? I am still in a mental haze after the wonderful weekend I had. Neither Prat nor me are big on valentine’s day in the traditional sense but since we met on a february we sort of jump at the chance to celebrate anything this month and WE DID! :D Here’s what my previous week looked like.

1. Scrumptious lunch at Candle 79. Highly recommend the mushroom squash risotto!2. Who goes to the beach when it’s subzero temps outside? These crazy people, thats’s who! ;) We spent an evening at Rehoboth beach… thought I’d never say this but a trip to the beach when people aren’t in full force is kind of nice!? :)3. Getting our glass swag on at Warby Parker :) Believe me when I say its freezing and yet the sun’s blinding!IMG-20150214-WA0001_resized4. Husband has officially mastered the art of gift giving! I on the other hand… Nahh! 5. Cooking can be a romantic activity if it involves spending little to no time cooking and lots of cheese! :P Here’s out first attempt at a 5 cheese pizza on ciabatta flat bread! :D We used mozzarella, pesto cheese, smoked gouda, Munster and swiss!IMG-20150214-WA0004_resizedHave a fabulous week!  East coasters please pull on an extra pair of socks :P

Something Borrowed!

Hello you guys! I have not been active on here lately but I blame that on the depressing weather and giant lack of “stuff” happening my side of the world! :D Anyway in this post, I thought I should extoll the virtue of stealing your significant other’s clothes when you are bored of wearing yours!:P Oversized pants and roomy pants .. yes please! :D  I swiped Prat’s flannel shirt only to make it my own:P IMG_4662IMG_4658IMG_4677IMG_4674

Hello guys!

Just when I thought we could put the previous week’s “snow strom” behind us there’s more icy slush on the cards! Like monday weren’t enough. Honestly last week I had nothing to blog about; all I was doing was except working, coming home and binge watching netflix but this week I am going to try harder ;). My top 5 from last week

1. Got to stay home snowed in during the storm and work of course1 :) 2. Cooked up some Kati rolls- an indian style wrap stuffed with my refrigerator left overs! :)3. Nothing says winter like black nails! 4. My throat’s was acting up for good measure and these ginger honey crystals really helped! 5. Love this super nourishing lip balm from sephora! It’s not exactly cheap at $5 but helps me reach my free shipping goal EVERYTIME when I order online! ;) Have a great week you guys! Stay warm and stay happy :)

“Check” it out!

I haven’t worn dresses in a while… Rather I haven’t risked losing sensation in the lower half of my body in a while :P But some days the weather is not as bad ( read hovering at 0 instead of -9 or something) and wearing a pair of wool tights with a dress seems too hard to pass up! ;) This monochrome check dress is actually not as cute with a chunky cardigan over it but it’s still better than wearing jeans and pullovers every day of the week :D Happy Friday! IMG_5015 Unbenannt-1 IMG_5022 IMG_5025s

Hello Everyone!

While some of you in the USA get to stay home for MLK day, less fortunate people like me simply cannot! :| Ok I’ll stop being a cry baby and instead focus on the fun week that went by! :)

1. Last week was pongal, a harvest festival celebrated by most of south India! I thought the least I could do was to make some goodies to celebrate :) pongal2. Help me Cera from Dr Jart+ is hands down the best winter moisturizer I have used but if only my insurance covered this :P 3. Prat’s found me my new on the go snack! :) Snow peas crisps!! 4. Matching beanie babies! :) IMG_20141124_231439_resized5. Fresh off the oven Pita and the best best middle eastern salad platter in an eclectic setting at the Bedouin Tent!Have a wonderful weekend! JUST BREATHE! :)

 

Gave it the boot!

I have said it before and I’ll say it again.. NY is frigid! No matter how many layers I wear, my feet still end up cold unless I pull on my beat up faux fur lined boots, which are just perfecttt to wear to the …. mmm grocery store? :P I needed a pair of boots that kept me warm while being versatile enough to wear in public! Several weeks of religious browsing and window shopping yielded the prize! I found a pair that was a rich brown, fit my feet/wallet and was just right for my height( or lack thereof :P) ! Maybe that’s why I look so happy?? ;) IMG_5091IMG_5094 IMG_5097 IMG_5104IMG_5100
