I swear it was like friday 10 mins ago! Gah.. and I just got done with monday.. what kind of sorcery is this??? Anyway I thought I’d do a HI5 monday post since its been a while.. and heres what I was up  :)

  1. My mantra – Put chocolate on everything!! Pancakes with a serious tan!😀IMG_24632. A quick trip to Austin to meet family :D IMG_23793. Sci fi – sold, 80s – sold …..Binge watching? Of course! 4. The faces I make when I am served food are the best kind of faces! The Cold platter at Empire Grill brings out the animated best in me :P Unbenannt-15. Curry leaves are such an integral part of south indian cooking but hard to find at the local grocery! So we decided to grow it at home :) IMG_2296Have a wonderful week and may you always do what you are afraid of!😀

  1. Caught up with my brother after 6 months! A long weekend was just what we needed. IMG_20362. Took a day trip to Galveston. It was sweltering but totally worth it :) 3. Started swimming to help with my knee. The last time I did it was 10 and I remember sucking less :P IMG_20374. The husband played chef and made Biryani. I could get used to this. :P IMG_20425. Finally watched conjuring 2. This was taken before the movie began;You can imagine what I looked like after :P IMG_6580Have a fantastic week ahead. Think Less Live More!!😀

 

 

Blue, white and nothing tight!

Its that time of the year for sunscreen, facial tissues and rivulets of sweat running down places they shouldn’t be. Which is precisely why its time for all things white and nothing tight.😛 In the below slides, you see the specimen trying to stay hydrated, not burn to a crisp and look presentable on camera … AND FAILING! But I will be practicing again this weekend ;) Have a wonderful friday and folks in america; make the most of the extra holiday!😀IMG_1872IMG_1863IMG_1854

Hi5 Mondays: The Big Easy Vacation!

Tags

, , , , ,

Hello World,

Prat and I managed a coup of sorts when we matched our “holiday” schedules at our respective jobs and managed to take off to New Orleans( WE’VE BEEN WANTING TO GO FOREVER) on a mini holiday last week!😀 We winged the whole trip (courtesy: google) – In fact, we didn’t even have hotel reservations until we actually needed to find a place to sleep :P… ….sometimes impulsive decisions are the best decisions!! Here’s my top 5 from the big easy vacation :)

1.THE ARCHITECTURE & HISTORY – You can spend hours in the french quarter looking at houses and wondering how each one looks so unique.  Totally charming and the best part – you can walk everywhere! ( If you dont pass out from the heat) 2. FOOD – As vegetarians, I thought we’d hit a wall here but I was wrong. From vegetarian gumbo,jambalaya, to po boys, beignets and tofu dogs, we ate some of the best food here. I would recommend Seed, El Gato Negro, Jimmy Js and a customary visit to Cafe Du Monde!FOOD3. MUSIC, THE FESTIVITIES THE SPIRIT! Every bar on frenchman street plays great jazz and there are musicians/artists on most corners of the french quarter! The trees along the streets are choc full of Mardi Gras beads from all the million parades that happen every year! IMG_18004. THE GATORS. A swamp tour to see these guys up close is just what we needed! IMG_18815. Finally, In the true spirit of Mardi Gras, I will leave you’ll with this! :P IMG_1651Have a wonderful week everyone!😀

Doing Greyt!

Hello Everybody,

Just when you thought I was gone for good, I rise again from the ashes of my laziness!😉 Honestly though, I had a knee injury from being over enthusiastic at my cross fit class and that kind of knocked me out of my regular routine. Also having a brace on somehow does not make for very good pictures!😛 So after a long break… Here’s a post of me doing Greyyyyt!:) I PROMISE TO WRITE MORE!IMG_1260IMG_1284 IMG_1285

 

 

 

 

Oversized Only!

, , , ,

As much as I love tailored stuff, balmy summers call for a light weight over sized shirt. I admit that I shop the mens section more than I shouldB:P  The shirts hit the right length and provide the appropriate amount of “shapelessness” :)If I cannot do that I simply allow myself to rummage through the husband’s closet and pull out a shirt like this one….A powder blue shirt paired with denim and some heels to dress it up. Not too shabby huh? :D IMG_0698 IMG_0693 IMG_0697

  1. What happens when your fridge has some diary products close to their expiry date? You whip up a corn au gratin! IMG_0827 2. Potted these for Prat’s office desk:)IMG_06613. Test riding a bike and looking like a mini – human while at it :P IMG_08334.  Batman Vs Superman – best thing about the movie? Gal Gadot! IMG_08325. Ethiopian food at Addis Ababa! Eating with your hands just makes it so much better :) IMG_0688Have a wonderful week ahead. THIS TOO SHALL PASS😀
