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 😛 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 😀 Happy Friday!
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 🙂 2. Help me Cera from Dr Jart+ is hands down the best winter moisturizer I have used but if only my insurance covered this 😛 3. Prat’s found me my new on the go snack! 🙂 Snow peas crisps!! 4. Matching beanie babies! 🙂 5. 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! 🙂
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? 😛 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?? 😉
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 = 😦3. 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?! 😛 4. 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 😀 5. 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!
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 😛 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! 🙂
