Blacklisted!

When a little black dress is too mainstream, this is what you need – black, sleek and all legs 😀 A flattering jumpsuit was an oxymoron until I met this one. Just add some XL sized fringe earrings, swipe on some nars jungle red …. the night is young! ( Let’s not think about the fact that it is a monday alright!) 😀 fullsizerender-kopie

Hi5 Mondays: New York Called

Tags

, , , , , ,

I spent most of our previous week in New York on my feet, enjoying the amazing weather while working, imagine that 😛 ! After having lived there for over 4 years it was weird being a one of the million tourists jostling along the side walk but hey no complaints! 🙂 Here’s my top 5 from NYC!

  1. Was fun recreating my old NY 150 sq ft living situation by staying at this pod at Yotel, but in Manhattan so I guess I traded up ? 😛 img_32812. Hanging out at the beach like good ol’ times! 😀 We also went back to the brooklyn bridge and a bunch of other places around the city! img_32823. Went to a jazz performance at Smalls! Highly recommended! img_32834. There are some places we don’t have around in Houston which we dearly miss and MUJI is one of them! img_32845. All the foooood – from the halal cart falafels, cheese fries at shake shack,  a slice from artichocke, cold vermicelli bowl at Saigon Shack…. I guess I over compensated for all the walking! 😀img_3286Have a wonderful week!

 

Hi5 Mondays: Golu & other stories!

Hello Guys,

Been a while since I hi5ed! So this week’s edition is going to be a little all over the place so please bear with me! 🙂 I want to wish all my Indian readers a happy Navarathri. This was one of my favorite times of the year back home – arranging  and creating elaborate scenes featuring my favorite dolls and insisting that the string lights be on all day, much to my mom’s annoyance 😉

Due to lack of space, dolls and patience I was unable to do this for the last few years but since I don’t have any of the above excuses now I TRIED this time. Next year we will be more prepared with a legit padi as opposed to a bookshelf 😛img_30212. Obviously this also means dressing the part!fullsizerender3. Went on a 4 day trip to New York on work for a show at the Javits! How does a place change so much in a few months? You tell me! 4. Took a drive into the natural bridge wildlife ranch. Among other things we took a video of a zebra slobbering all over our car window but obviously you get to see this quite guy instead 😀5. Kuzhipaniyarams are so easy to make, provided you have the pan. Now I do! 😛img_2900Have a wonderful week! Eat well my friends 🙂

 

Floraled!

I found this floral dress on a rack at H&M some place and liked the fact that some designer had thought to put 2 pleats below the waist to accommodate a burrito belly! 😛  Its not the most flattering dress per say but the fact that you don’t need to wear spanx or have a salad for lunch makes me really warm up to it! I may have gone a little over board with the earrings but but but YOLO or something?! 😀 Happy Fringed Floral Friday Folks!

  3. Best mexican food this side of town at Cafe Chavez!img_2542
  4. Pre halloween meet with the coven! But seriously how is it halloween already?? What did I do this year apart from nothing??img_2667

The faces I make when I am served food are the best kind of faces! The Cold platter at Empire Grill brings out the animated best in me 😛 Unbenannt-15.

So we decided to grow it at home 🙂 IMG_2296Have a wonderful week and may you always do what you are afraid of! 😀
