Heyloooo Everyone!

How is the monday treating you so far? It’s funny how I want a holiday after a three day weekend but that could totally be the lack of breakfast talking :P I had a wonderful time doing what I do best – eating, lazing around, and eating some more :P Here’s my Hi5 from last week

1. Hiking on bear mountain!!! Who knew there were such scenic places so close to the city. Highly recommend. 2. Strawberry Almond concrete with blondie pieces from shakeshack!!! See you in heaven :P 20150626_1702563. I was wondering if I should paint my nails a tangerine or a hot pink and then decided why not both? ;) 20150704_1801114. Caught a show at comedy cellar! I cannot tell you how much fun this was! :) 5. Made some protein patties with granulated soy and veggies! Stay full my friends! :) 20150705_135617Have a crazy week ahead and I mean the good kind of crazy!:D

 

 

Something Blue!

Come summer and tadaaa… prints & preethi are inseparable! While pairing prints, brights and everything in between is an acceptable way of life for me, there are some days when I like to pare it down and let the print be the star of my outfit – which is exactly what I did with these navy printed wide legged shorts! I chose a silk shirt in the same tone of my skorts and monochromed my way into zeee worlddddd!! Okay writing a post in the middle of a sugar rush is not the best idea but the eve of a three day weekend deserves from rose gelato. :P  I wish all my readers in the USA a happy fourth, and to the rest of the world – the weekend’s coming! :) IMG_5687 copyIMG_5686S

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

, , , , , ,

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
