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

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

Hello Earthlings!

Blame it on the fact that some part of me is still stuck in the holidays.. but this Hi5 mondays will have a few things I did over the new year week as well just because the previous week was a dampener what with all the extra chills and snow! :)

1. I would never care to stand in line let alone in the cold for ANYTHING… but Prat really wanted to try a cronut from Dominique Ansel…. the things you do for love! ;) The cronut itself tasted fine but the DKAs were my favorite! :) 2. I do like snow but winds + snow = :(20150109_0819173. I have heard great stuff about juicing though the “not eating while only chugging cold drinks when it is extra cold outside” was not the best! I gave in anyway and did a 3 day cleanse! I don’t know how much of a difference it made but for what it’s worth I realize how much I like chewing?! :P 20150108_1349164. Biked on the Manhattan Bridge! My cycling was rusty at best but I am going to do more of this when the weather gets slightly better :D IMG_20141227_172936_rewind5. Date night at FAT CAT in the village!Board games, ping pong, snooker and the most chilled out vibe! What’s not to love :) Have a wonderful week ahead! Smile away!

All Bundled up!

Happy New year and Happy “all the other days I went missing in between” ;)  Hope all of you’ll had a wonderful holiday! I’d rather not go in depth about the truckloads of food I ate and the crazy stuff I did…. let’s just say I had a great time!:) A new year means nothing if you are still in love with your comfort zone…… which is exactly why I bought a pleather mini. Hopefully it will encourage me to lose the happy holiday pounds?? Who am I kidding, It’s more fun to hide behind an enormous coat instead :P   Anyway as you can see I am suffering from writer’s block ( haha) , so let me put up an outfit post to do the talking! Have a terrific tuesday! :)IMG_5052IMG_5050IMG_5046IMG_5049

HI5 mondays!!

Hello World! IT’S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR… thanks to all the holidays round the corner! :) I am pretty sure this week is going to be very eventful but meanwhile here’s how last week panned out! :D

1. Made soy vegetable koftas( which are a kind of  indian croquette) in a cashew gravy! :) Yummy in my tummy! :P20141220_2209212. Had a gift coupon from sephora which went toward this clinique set! I need all the moisture I can get in this weather :) 20141218_2214263. A customary visit to the Rockefeller Christmas tree4. The only thing that makes the trek from Brooklyn to Queens to buy Indian groceries is I get to eat delish indian food for cheap! :) Bhelpuri at Samudra20141220_1324065. I was so tired of all my stuff lying all over the house, so finally got around to organizing everything including all my skin stuff, make up and hair stuff! I probably give it 2 weeks until it is all over the house again :P20141216_212628Have a wonderful(obviously short) week.. :)
