Outfit of the day - for pooja

I had to attend a pooja today and hence wore a saree. I love wearing sarees but rarely wear them since I am not very good at draping them. Today, the saree was drapped by my sis-in-law. A big thank you to her! :) And the jewellery is all gifted by mom. Love you mom!

Elavo Toilet Seat Sanitizer - Review

I bought this product as it was recommended by my doctor after I got severe UTI. He suggested that I should avoid going to the toilet in public places. While I do this rarely, I do have to go to the toilet in my office which is where I caught the UTI. So the only solution to this was to buy a toilet seat sanitizer.

Price: INR99 for 75 ml (bought for INR69 from medplusbeauty)

Ingredients: IPA (Rubbed Alcohol), Fragrance, Propellant (Butane, Isobutane, Propane)

What the product claims and where it can be used.

I wanna go back ...

I am a child of the 80s. That says a lot about how my childhood days would have been. Being born in the 80s is the best thing that happened to me. My life did not revolve around a TV and computer. I had time to do so many things which the current generation misses out on. I feel extremely nostalgic about those days and wish I could have all of it back.

This is how life was back then, peaceful and calm, and so beautiful and happy.

Belated Happy Birthday!! ......

.... to me!!!!!!!!!! .. Haha .. so you can see how lazy I am since I am late in posting on my own birthday :D

My birthday is on 31st December. Sigh!!! what a nice day to have a birthday right? last day of the year, everyone celebrating ... hmmm .. not exactly. While having a birthday on the last day of the year is exciting, it also means that most of your friends are never available to party that night! They are all busy at different new year parties :) The last time I had all my friends available for a birthday party and for partying all through the night with me was 2004! ... So you can imagine how I feel! Though I do have a darling hubby who is always there with me to make my day and make me feel extra awesome .. hehe.

But whatever said and done, this day does make me feel special (as it would for anyone who has a birthday on any day), but it makes me feel especially special since its the last day of the year. At least no one forgets my birthday! ;)

I believe that the end of a year is always exciting and awesome (of course partly due to the anticipation of gifts at the end of the year ;)). But by end of year, I do not mean just December .. I mean the last 3-4 months of the year. There are so many festivals - Ganesh Chathurti, Navratri, Dusshera, Diwali, Christmas .. wow! Also, the weather, particularly in humid Bombay, starts becoming cool and cozy. All these together make the end of every year very special for me. So this is how I looked at the start of December :D

Bhuj haul!

In December of last year, I visited Bhuj with my mom. The weather was pleasant and we enjoyed our stay there. Along with roaming around Bhuj, taking in the sites, visiting temples and having fun in general, we of course SHOPPED! :)

Following are a few pics of what I bought:

Outfit of the day - its cold!!

Its become quite cold these days, particularly by Mumbai standards. So I have had to dress up quite warm for office. Below is what I wore to office today - a simple and warm dress in dull winters colours with a pop of pink by way of nail colour.

Let me know what you think!

Happy New Year!

Hello Everyone,

Wish you all a very happy new year. The year of doom has passed, and the world is still alive, though not very intact. Here's hoping that 2013 turns out better than 2012 for everyone. Maybe we will have better politicians, more justice, lesser rapes (wish I could hope for no rapes), more love, higher growth .... and the list continues. But I guess it is too much to hope for, given the attitude we have seen in Delhi from both the politicians and the police. But if we continue the fight, the world will be a better place for our children.
