Trader Vic's Mai Tai - a review

Like I mentioned in the previous post, my friends and I met up at Trader Vic's Mai Tai for lunch a couple of weeks back.

Location: Phoneix Marketcity in Kurla
Other locations: Lower Parel, opposite PVR Cinemas

Google tells me that Trader Vic's is an internationally established family of restaurants & lounges and home of the original Mai Tai. I did not know this when I first visited Mai Tai. It was a coincidence that hubby and I one day ended up at Mai Tai. We were looking for a different cuisine and hubby suggested we try this out. And I am so glad we did!

Guest post - Another fashion enthusiast

My friend Mansi finally agreed to an outfit post and we had a fun photo shoot when we met for lunch recently :)

I have always liked Mansi's sense of style. Her styling is generally quirky + cute but minimalist. And it sure looks great on her! She is also very camera friendly and photographs beautifully, unlike yours truly who is actually quite camera shy ;-)

So for the lunch, she wore a printed red Levi's dress and accessorized it with multi-colored sandals and a gorgeous watch. Its a fun and breezy outfit and just perfect for the hot summer that Mumbai is experiencing.

Sharing a bit of background, Mansi actually went to buy jeans at the Levi's store and instead ended up buying this dress. This came as a surprise to me cause I associate Levi's primarily to jeans! Has anyone of you had a similar experience?

Would love your thoughts on this OOTD. And yes, fingers crossed that Mansi will do more
guest posts on my blog :)

PS: Next post would be a restaurant review (the restaurant where Mansi, me and other friends met up for lunch)

Sandals: Charles & Keith
Watch: Longines

A little nostalgia

This time I disappeared for a very long time. I can't believe I ignored my blog for so long :-(

But I have moved into a new role in my job a couple of months back which keeps me really, really busy. The work is stimulating, but very, very time consuming. Also, I shifted houses recently which kept me super busy with packing and unpacking. So the weekends were also eaten up.

But excuses aside, I am back. And will be regular again. Shifting is done (unpacking will take some time for sure!). I am still super busy at work, but will at least have the weekends for my blog :-)

While packing up my stuff, I came across some pics which took me back to my childhood. It was lovely reminiscing about the good old days when it was all play and no work :-) Pics or not, I reminisce about the good old days off and on .. as this post shows ;-)

Anyways, sharing a few pics of me when I was really little. :-)

This is my favorite pic. I can't believe that the doll is as tall as me!
