This look might be a tad girly for a lot of you folks! But I acknowledge “perfection” when I see it;) A pastel skater skirt paired with a sheer embroidered top screams summer. And I like how they keep the rest of the add-ons simple! In fact the whole ensemble looks so soft and airy that I hereby pronounce this look “peach souffle”:P Happy day!
How is everyone doing today? No idea why but this weekend I was feeling extra-lazy, and it was a herculean task for me to get back on track to take on the week! But then life has to go on :P.. so here I am at my desk thinking about the week that whizzed by..
1. Cooked up some whole wheat oatmeal pancakes to brighten up my morning from this recipe here. Delish+healthy= WIN!2. Perks of living by the beach – catching an evening sunset!3. Grow older they said.. no more break outs they said.. and how wrong they were!:P I still get acne and it annoys me to no end! I read some great reviews about this sulphur ointment and ordered it. I am hoping my search ends here! 😀4. A giant scoop of watermelon sorbet to cool off the summer heat! And I mean GIANT! B)5. Wolfed down a vietnamese spread after a crazy work out at Pho Hoai.Have a great week you’ll … Also only 4 days to go for the weekend! 😛
Time to get catty folks! 😛 Animal prints are a perenial classic! I like this skirt in particular because it alludes to a leopard print without being so obvious. Also it is cut to a flattering lady- like length which is just perfect for work! And what better way to wear it than paired with my favorite washed chambray shirt and red lips?No that was a rhetorical question!:P Oh and happy happy weekend! 🙂
There has been many a time I have rummaged through my bag looking desperately for something and taking a good five minutes to find it!Tell me I am lot alone! I clearly have too much stuff in there 😛 So finally I decided it was time for a quick edit/ arrangement of the contents. Also I thought while I was at it I could share what’s in my bag! Most women would nod their heads in agreement if I were to say my bag is strictly off limits for most people to peruse/hold( depending on my mood :P). I let Prat peek in it once and that look of utter disbelief/disgust on his face still makes me occasionally laugh! My bag is my personal haven of things.. a medley of a hundred receipts, crinkled dollars, a bunch of keys, my wallet, a beat-down book,my much-needed charger, head phones.. and a ton of other stuff! Add some, take away some and more or less this is what I carry with me on a daily basis.. A little much you think? Let’s just say there is no such thing as being too prepared 😉
Self explanatory poetic title as you can see 🙂 I was never a shorts person.. skirts yes, dresses yes.. but say shorts.. and I would run a mile.( It might be interesting to mention I now could run a few miles on the treadmill wearing shorts everyday :P) But desperation(read: crazy heat) is the mother of all experimentation and cut to the present- you have yourselves a shorts aficionado! Now I think I am wearing them a little too much.. especially this olive pair 🙂
Everything well? I Loved the long weekend! Getting back to work.. not so much :p but then what’s new 🙂 Anyway I did a lot of stuff over the week.. here are some of the more fun ones 😀
1. Come summer and I eat yoghurt/ sorbet/icecream like I drink water!:) I have paid enough visits to the pinkberrys and red mangos of the world to be on first name basis with the desk staff 😛 Also I may or may not be snacking on some sorbet as I type this. 2. Nothing spells hot summer than hotter pink nails 😛 3. Pigged out on thai food at vegetarian ginger! 4. I loved despicable me. I loved despicable me 2 as much 🙂 And I loved this song from the movie the most.Those minions could make a statue smile! 5. It’s probably because I am starting to get homesick, but I decided to wear some indian garb on a whim to work last week! And yes my nail color looks nicer on this one :dHave a great week everyone! 🙂
4th of july was a regular day for me! I slept in late, ate my breakfast in bed, showered, pulled on some decent clothes and finally willed myself to go on my monthly grocery haul to trader joe’s. One minute I am walking straight faced, counting the number of people dressed in versions of the american flag( because I am jobless like that!)….. and the next minute I realize I myself was wearing a red,blue and white outfit without even intending to!( pictorial evidence of my reaction above);) And then I calmed myself down enough to get a decent picture and decided to do this post!Now if only those polka dots were stars.. never mind! 😛 Have a happy weekend!
Here’s wishing all americans a very happy independence day!:) I have a great day planned.. an outdoor barbecue a picnic complete with plenty of goodies – think corn on cob, fresh pie, and ice cream….but unfortunately only in my head. 😛 You’ll probably just find me rolling on the couch and eating leftover pizza …. But yes a mid week holiday is a god given gift…. So have fun everyone ,enjoy the fireworks and don’t forget to wear your stars & stripes! 😀
Of course I blame the excessive heat for my terrible post titles and incessant ranting:P (Cue for everyone else who lives in hotter areas( hello my friends from India) to do a MASSIVE eyeroll!) Anyway this weekend, Prat and I had an agenda.. the outdoors felt like a sauna, but that didn’t stop either of us from slathering on some heavy duty sunscreen, pulling on some easy clothes, and taking on the sun with our little straw hats… The war was on and yes.. this post was born!:P Also you must have guessed who won the battle after seeing our triumphant smiles below 😉
How is everyone doing?! I had a particularly pleasant week and feel “equipped” enough to take on the new one. Also how bad can a week be with a holiday in between( hello 4th of july). 😉 Here’s what I managed to accomplish last week
1. Maybe I am having a “middle-eastern” moment but off late I have been craving hummus, pita and the like! I thought it would be more “purse friendly” to start trying to make them at home … Lazy as I am, I started with a tabouleh salad with this recipe and trust me I am as anti-salad as they come, and this tastes so delish! Do try it. 2. All of winter I was wishing for sun, and now am wondering if I wished for too much 😛 As much as I’d like staying indoors, that isn’t an option so I am stocking up on my sunscreen! So far this one from Neutrogena is my favorite.3. Prat and I were hungry. We were semi-lost 😛 Result: First time we went to a chinese take out and ended up eating there! 😉4. Caught a movie at the local theater! I am no brad pitt fan but I enjoyed it 🙂 5. I have been wanting to visit the green wood cemetery; a serene little picturesque spot in brooklyn! And finally made it. A true non-touristy gem!Have a happy happy week! 😀
