Hi5 errr… Tuesdays : Fallen

Tags

, , , , ,

I might as well name this section Hi5 anyday! πŸ˜› Moving on…. October is one of my favorite times of the year – the weather turns, halloween decor is up which means you can peer into people’s yards without being judged and the beginning of the holiday season. But this year …. lets just say I will wait for Corona to pass to I can social distance on my own terms πŸ˜› Meanwhile the week that went by!

  1. Fall decor is up!

2. When you cant go out as much, bring the green in!

3. In another edition of things you dont need but want – Here’s our new fruit basket! πŸ˜€

4. We visited Dewberry farms this week. We were very skeptical as we had visited another farm two weeks ago only to turn back because the place was packed and people wore no masks. This farm was much better about enforcing masks and they were at lower capacity! Stay safe and wear a mask.

5. Its finally getting cooler, which means at home pho bowls!

Have a wonderful week! πŸ˜€

DIY: Rugs to Riches

Tags

, ,

No no you are on the right blog! It’s just that with the pandemic, I spend a lot more time ( read: all) at home and have been working on small projects to not get crazy. Depending on if I can keep up, I may do a regular DIY section πŸ˜€

So we had an old and subtly stained (thanks son!) cream Ikea rug which we carted when we moved. Our entryway needed a rug and I did not want to add one more rug to the 1000 we already have in the rug barn that is our home, so I decided to breathe some new life into the old one. I wish I had taken a picture prior to drawing on it but hey hindsight is 20/20. I used fabric markers and kept the pattern simple in line with out southwestern/ boho aesthetic. TA DAA!! One less rug in the landfill.

Fit to a Tee!

Is there a thing as a pandemic fashion trend? Indeed. Lounging indoors means wearing things that expand with your post lunch belly. πŸ˜› But what happens when you have to make short trips outside but cannot be bothered with pants and the like? Enter the tee dress – Just like wearing your favorite tee but only better. Post pregnancy and Pandemic 15 certified πŸ˜€

Jokes apart: Stay safe stay healthy!

Hi5 Mondays: A mixed bag

Tags

, , , ,

Ahhh….Hi5 Monday, my old trusted friend!! Β You always come to my rescue when I have too much to write and nothing to write somehow. Let’s jump right in!

  1. A trip to the temple after ages! It was just good to get out.

2.Β Β It was just good to get out. We did a thing and moved into a new place in May ( In the middle of the pandemic with a baby no less. I guess we were convinced we could take on more? ) Anyway bigger home means more space but also more messes and more work. Lawn work somehow is relaxing… FOR NOW!

3. Staying indoors means eating…. lots of it. Deep dish pizza for date night ( on the couch πŸ˜› )

4. Staying indoors also means a lot of online shopping. I highly recommend Ruggable if you have pets, kids or you are a general klutz πŸ˜‰ No more breakouts when my son decides to smear some marinara on the rug πŸ˜€

Have a terrific week ahead and yes one more slice of pizza is allowed πŸ˜€

 

Back from a 2 year hiatus – Kinda Sorta?

Tags

, ,

I cannot believe I haven’t written a post in 2 years, but then again looking at the things happening around us, I’d say this is a lot easy to digest. I hope all of you are safe and reasonably sane considering we are still in the midst of a pandemic. I for one am going a bit stir-crazy being cooped up indoors, add a baby( hence the hiatus!?:D) to the mix and BAAAAM- Never a dull moment!Anyway I hope to write once a week, chronicling the stuff I have been up to and trying to justify how maternity leggings,PJs and week-old hair buns never go out of fashion! πŸ˜› I would like to thank all of you’ll who have let me know that I was missed and trust me thats the only reason I have pushed myself to write again despite the boatload of baby laundry that is calling my name πŸ™‚ Welcome back to the 2.0 mom version of chasing yellow cabs – a bit all over the place, and every bit real! πŸ˜€

Skirt Tales

June is almost always the craziest month of the year for me with half a dozen anniversaries, birthdays and what not so I guess I am allowed to go missing! In other news the summer continues to be relentless and I continue to go pantless πŸ˜› Β Nothing like a cool crinkled cotton skirt that says zero maintenance. I urge you all to join the care- a -damn- party Β with your wind-mussed hair and liner-smudged eyes but kids do not forget your sunscreen πŸ˜€ Happy Friday!

( Not so) Little red dress!

Tags

, , , , , ,

It is my be-a-nicer-version-of-yourself day , also known as Friday which is why I chose to Β feature myself wearing a dress as opposed to the shorts and tee uniform I have been sporting lately πŸ˜› This block printed red-pink version with a relaxed waist line is a favorite to wear to anything that involves eating or posing coyly while thinking of eating. I have wondered one too many times if this was intended to be a maternity dress up but what can I say.. It serves my purpose !? πŸ˜€ Enjoy the weekend

Max(i)ed Out!

It is too hot to wear pants. It is also too hot to wear something short unless you want some fun tan lines.. which I do NOT! And that is Β where Maxi skirts come in – a fun combo of sun protection + ventilation + entertainment(take a twirl and you’ll know what I am saying :P) !

PS: It is never too hot to wear black! πŸ˜€ Happy Hump Day!

O Olive!

Tags

, , , ,

The olives in my wardrobe are mostly limited to shirts, jackets and an occasional pant but when I saw this chiffon olive dress I had to open my heart and wallet to it πŸ˜› The waist tie detail is a double perk – defines your waist when you need it, hides your post lunch pooch when you don’t. SOLD!

Enjoy your weekend! πŸ˜€
