I found myself nodding to this when I read it.. Also just so you know chocolate works fine when you can’t get to the sea in this weather 😐 😉 Have a wonderful weekend you’ll!
Any outfit which does not involve a puffer jacket is worth posting however drab it may be!:D So here you have it, an oversized cocoon coat which was literally sleeping in my closet thanks to a gazillion snow storms, a dress which hasn’t seen the light of the day in about 3 months and stockings… sigh! However the good weather lasted a day and I am back to my old ways… so until it gets better, OOTD posts shall continue to hibernate. ‘appy wednesday! 🙂
The main reason monday exists is for me to feel really happy about a friday! 😉 I had such a wonderful weekend what with the miraculous good weather and all that but alas it was but a short lived pleasure! I did manage to get some stuff done which I thought I should share!
1. Baked up some quinoa-oat-pumpkin seed granola to snack on the way back from the gym! So easy and tasty ! 🙂2. I seldom buy lip glosses, I stick to tinted lip balms or matt lipsticks! But I now know what I have been missing! I just love this fuchsia lip gloss for it’s consistency, easy application and longevity! 😀3. Started drinking a cup of chamomile tea every night to help me sleep better! Seems to be working so far! 🙂 4. Rewarded myself with a tasty veggie burrito bowl at tres carnes for not missing a single work out day 😛 5. Visited the trendology exhibition at the FIT museum… thanks in part to the great weather and company! Brought a flurry of fashion school memories! 😀Here’s wishing you all a wonderful week! 😀 Do what you can with what you have, where you are!
Think of a pencil skirt as literally as you can and this is what you get! 😀 I would have a field day coming up with different ways to style this! And the fact that there are pops of color (pencils) on a neutral background should scare everyone a lot less!:P But the only catch.. It is from anthropologie! Which means I am going to need someone to buy me this pleassee!! 😀
It’s monday! I wish you lots of luck to get through this difficult time 😛 As for me I’ll rehash my bygone week and take some solace! 😀
1. Work in progress —–> tofu veggie soba noodles! I promise you’ll enjoy this one2. Gotta love an app that makes cute caricatures for you which you can pretend you made:P 3. Tried to keep up with all the great fall clothes down the runway at NYFW! 4. If wearing gloves outdoors weren’t enough I now wear them while I shower too 😛 But hey if it makes my skin smooth and helps slough away all the winter damage.. I say why not 😀 4. Here’s me on my way to becoming a human popsicle.. Seriously who ordered this terrible weather! ??! Have a super duper week! 😀 We’ll get through this one day at a time 🙂
Maybe it’s the weather or it could be quite possibly a recently acquired hoarding problem! 😛 But I’ve been on a lip balm buying kick lately… BECAUSE I NEEED TO HAVE one in every bag/room/coat/.. at arms length in short ;)! So there’s the Vanilla Noya, the burt’s bees, a just-average neutrogena, a fancy little nina ricci, a slightly pricey malin+goetz, a tinted one from em, my faithful blistex and a big ol’ tub of vaseline! There are also 2 chap sticks( I had one and forgot about it and got another one :D) at my desk at work and an eos mint egg at the bottom of my gym bag that am too lazy to find 😛 I am also happy to let you’ll know I am still collecting.. because there is no such thing as too much lip balm and the bad weather is staying awhile 😛 So bring on the suggestions and let me know which one is your go-to lip balm! Happy 2-days-until-friday! 😀
Somethings are hard to believe.. like monday being here already :P. Jokes apart I was actually referring to chasing yellow cabs turning 2!?!:) Feels like I just started this a while back! What started as a self test to really see if I could keep at maintaining a blog consistently is now a fun platform for me to meet & connect with new people, come up with reasonably entertaining content and of course reading some great blogs in the process! 🙂 I take this chance to thank all of my readers for their support and prat for giving me blogging ideas when I feel uninspired 😀While we are at it, I thought it would be apt to revisit my 5 top posts from the past year which wordpress tells me were the most read 😀 ( in case you missed them ;))
1. How I battled the bulge and won2. A guide to begin and feed your lipstick obsession3. Spring fling4. Weather gets hotter, hemlines get shorter5. Bauble Bar: Simply statement Have a wonderful weekend 😀 and thanks again for taking time to visit CYC 😀
I am not sure you’ll remember but I am in the process of growing my hair out, in fact it is the longest( and messiest) it’s ever been! But on the flip side the terrible weather, poor genetics( I have poker straight thin hair.. thanks mom!), getting through shampoo bottles faster 😛 and chronic fly aways have made me share a love-hate relationship with it;) It gets in the way when I roll around in bed in my sleep( does this happen to anyone??) and frankly it tires me but I really want to see it through at least until the end of the year to see how long it gets. Which brings us to this picture I chanced upon in my archives while looking for something else..! Carefree short hair. Sigh! I hated how it looked on me then but now I realize what a breeze it was to maintain! My hands are itchy ever since I saw this pic.. it’s a good thing I cant find my scissors 😛
