I have stopped short of yelling from the rooftops that I spent my week at Vegas:) so no surprise that you’ll have to suffer about me going on and on about it. 😛 Whilst at the tradeshow, I managed to sneak out of the booth to indulge in people-watching and here are some of my captures 😀
Because my braiding skills are non existent and I love a good braid when I see one … 🙂 I immensely admire people who can walk the day in heels. * Looks down at my worn out loafers*This shot was perfect.. at least for a generic digital camera 😀 Common give me some credit! Even sweatshirts need to dress up once in a while 😀Sock buns are so easy.. in my head, in reality not so much!! 😛Sneaky sneaky neon!A fishtail braid refuses to stay put on my hair There’s something about doing the “sheer”!This woman carried off patent leather like nobody’s business.
Everyone doing okay? Monday is bad enough but throw in a week of being away and getting back to the grind is next to impossible! Especially if that one week was spent in Vegas! Yes you heard that right! 🙂 So this week’s HI5 mondays is going to be the “Vegas” Edition! 😀 Who said what happens in Vegas stays there 😛 Here are my top 5 highlights of the trip!( Warning: Expect no gambling hauls, drunken adventures or strip club visits; the most exciting it got was when I got hit on by a girl but that’s about it 😛 )1. Attended the MAGIC trade show/ the reason I went to Vegas in the first place – a designer dream come true seeing brands from all over the world come together to showcase their stuff under one roof! Very Inspiring:)2. Trust Vegas to cater to us non alcoholics too! They make a mean fruit sangria! 🙂3. If you didn’t know already, Vegas = jaw dropping extravagance! The indoor sky and ornate ceilings at the hotels & malls were a sight to behold! And don’t get me started on all the fancy hotel interiors, the gondolas, and greek inspired sculptures! My camera was doing overtime 😉4. Just when I got a wee bit homesick there was a mini new york at the strip to cheer me up! 😛5. Everyone talks about food when they talk Vegas, so I was really expecting to indulge! Most hotels had a limited vegetarian menu but I managed to get some top knotch grub at star chef-endorsed joints 😀 In case you are wondering about the gambling/nightlife bit, I am saving it for my trip with Prat! 😀 Happy week folks!
Do any of these apply to you? 😀
a. You own plenty of neck pieces which no matter how hard you try to keep well end up becoming a tangled mess.
b. Your living quarters resemble the size of a matchbox.
c. Your landlord refuses to let you use nails on the wall.
d. All of the above( this is me).
If you check at least one of these, you might find this simple tutorial useful. And what’s more more, when friends come over to visit this “chain installation” is sure to become a conversation starter 😀 Have fun DIY- ing 🙂
If working on a monday weren’t enough I am going to be flying out today on business( Because I like to make it sound serious):D. So I shall be sure to compensate for any lapses in my blogging/ reading your lovely posts once I am back 🙂 Before I forget, here’s what I did last week.
1. Cupcakes+ skating at bryant park = perfect valentine’s day ❤2. Had my fill of totally yum “Mandoo” -the Korean version of dumplings at Mandoo Bar.3. Visited the Melissa Shoes boutique in Soho.. The place looks like a giant mothership where futuristic shoes spawn.( Okay too much scifi over the weekend!):P 4. My friend Dolly has started her own line called POUT( no! we don’t mean duckface) in India and I have proclaimed myself the creative consultant :P. The line is launching soon and we are very excited. I am even working on a line of illustrated tees for her 🙂 Watch this space for more 😀5. The winter doesn’t seem to let up and my lips are facing the brunt of it. I tried this last week with much success 😀 Here’s wishing everyone a very happy week! 🙂 Don’t forget to be silly 😉
In today’s world where everyone is constantly on the run, busy with their own lives, let’s be inspired by the “truly timeless” watch- forget about your schedules, chores and hassles; take a breather,appreciate and be thankful for what you are and what/who you have 😀 Happy Weekend!
And you still say you don’t believe in love? 😛 Jokes apart, I am not hugely into the concept of Valentine’s day but if it means spending time with your loved ones, and being happy, ( and dolling up… and stuffing your self… and getting all those gifts… and… and..), then more power to it 😀 Happy Valentine’s day to you’ll!
Have any of you had a color phase where you simply ended up buying different tones of the same color? And then one day you wake up and you don’t want to wear that color EVER.. for a while 😉 I had a PINK phase a long time back( I may or may not have been over 20 then :P) and we have been estranged since. But when I saw these cute blush rosette earring,s I swallowed my pride and went for it. In hindsight it adds a wee bit of a feminine touch to my otherwise meh clothes! 😀
