Happy Birthday Love!

Well..I've broken bones. Quite literally. No, I didn't get into a fight. I just broke some bones by tripping over. Lets hope that's what it was. Can't believe sober people have to go through that as well. 

Anyway my head is racing with thoughts...thoughts of me missing my love's birthday. It's in less than an hour and I know I wouldn't generally make a big deal out of it. Actually I had the perfect birthday plan, 3 things to remind us of how we met and became friends so obviously there was Absolute, Zara and a big book of finance involved. Man! I love people who love finance. 

Happy Birthday Puppy. Mom loves ya!

A new leap



Not so long ago, I decided to do something that would take up my time in more ways than expected. After two years, its almost over and I can't wait to get back to what I'm really passionate about and that is Fashion. 

I hope you will be able to spare some time for me. Do not forget to click on the 'Follow Me' button. 

Can't wait to hear from you.

Porcelanosa my house!

When you're stuck at home staring at the blank sky and secretly hoping Santa sends snow this time, nothing seems to be a bigger savior than IB's Happy Hours.

This time there's something that has put my multitasking skills to its best use. This would have actually waited a year more, but with my new house half way through I guess its time to decide the closet arrangement. Luckily, I have one the size of half a bedroom.

While I do love the look and feel to reflect my style (Read : Anything Chanel), Porcelanosa does offer options that reflect the style of the house over all.

Inspiration and products

It took quite sometime, but I finally made my decision on the pieces I'm interested in using for the Closet.  Hope you like it!


Flooring and  Wall
Lets talk Flooring and Wall, first, shall we?

XLIGHT are ceramic tiles by the brand. I love the Black and Brown selections available. Guess the theme will be inspired by Chanel after all.

Another option, I would definitely consider is the Vetro Antracita. To neutralize, I love the Arizona Stone Option for the floors.


Closets 

I love the idea of glass and I don't mind it, especially if it can utilize the color scheme perfectly. Plus, it will the perfect inspiration to keep the area neat and tidy.
This selection is called  GAMADECOR - 'NATURA - ROBLE MARENGO / LINO CANCUN TEXTIL'.

Furniture 


 

Called the SEVEN Roble Blanco, the chair is the perfect addition. Would love two of these in the area. Sometimes, you just need to sit and reflect (stare).  And to top it off a little table in the middle of the area to set accessories for the perfect display.

Awkward #11 | Identity Theft

Enuff said?

Awkward #10 The problem with Relationships..

When you’re relationship is in trouble, you have two options. The first one is to listen / fight about it or you could take up the second option and simply close the door on your relationship.

It took me sometime but I realized that most people who I know are in relationships are living a lie. A lie that happy endings exist and that even though they have trust and ego issues, it’s okay to battle it out with each other on an almost daily basis. I understand the honeymoon period is over, but honey if it ain’t working out now, it simply is not going to work out later.

Before my blog turns into a relationship blog, let me give you a little background to this story.
Once a upon a time, there was a Maharashtrian boy who fell in love with a Punjabi Girl. The boy was your typical ‘Krish’ from 2 States while the girl was a hard core Honey Singh fan? She was a typical Punjaban. Both of them attached to their families and while the boy spent most his years living without his parents, she was brought up under her parents shadow. It had only been a year and she had caught the ‘air of the new city’.

I know it’s none of my business, but I’m getting caught in between.  For instance, last week a party took place and I had to take the girls back home. They were so drunk that I wasn’t sure what happened at the place because I was busy with calls. I’m working on a project right now. ^^
I only have hints about what happened.  As a rule I always ensure to let my friend’s boyfriends know what happened. It’s also a clue that next time am not taking any shit.

Honestly what would you have done?


If I hadn’t told him, she wouldn’t have either. The problem is when you have too many people in the party. Its better if it comes from a friend, rather than from someone else. At least that’s a rule I live by.

Awkward #9 Identity Crisis

Maybe I'm not the most optimistic person I claim to be?
May be its just a coincidence?
Maybe I'm overreacting?

I've spent most of my life trying to become something I'm not. Trying to fit in places I don't really like to be in. I think we've all sort of faced it sometime in our lives. Maybe not in college but maybe at home?
I think most of my childhood, infact even right now at home, I've always tried to fit in the environment my parents created for me but I know I'm not the perfect fit.

Maybe this is something most Indian children feel, pressurized by their parents to live a dream that they didn't get to live, but whats the use? If they needed a puppet, they could have bought one. Puppets are old, maybe Robots. But lets be frank, these robots can have their own mind too (just ask Will Smith).

As I near the end of college, I feel that my life is heading in a direction where I see only darkness, but isn't it us, who choose where we want to travel? Some of us decide to use the GPS and the rest  don't ask for directions.

But if you don't ask directions it will take longer, right?

Then why is that people who don't ask for directions win?

The TRESemme Review : Split Remedy Shampoo

What does a girl really need? 
A great shampoo and conditioner that gives her the confidence she needs. After all, a bad day is a day lost. 
Despite living in Bangalore for the past few months, I've been lucky enough to avoid split ends, so this time, I decided to share this product with my BFF. 



Facts about friends hair : 
We both moved to the city almost the same time. We've both have had our share of hair damage except that her hair coloring habits aggravated the issue. 
She's been following a strict regime of hair oiling & using mild shampoos. 

Pre TRESemme Regime
Ayurvedic oil  massage every alternative day, followed by a hair wash with Dove Shampoo in the morning.

Post TRESemme 
Ayurvedic oil massage followed with shampooing and conditioner in the morning.

The Result
Softer and more manageable hair
Less Split Hair
Hair fall more or less the same


Facts about my hair:
Developed Dandruff  last month (Thank you so much Bangalore), dry hair aggravated due to over use of hair straightener (my career depends on it)

Pre TRESemme
Ayurvedic Oil (never)
Hair wash every alternate day without conditioner. Switch between three  different brands. Completely avoid Dove Products.

Post TRESemme 
Soft, manageable hair, Great smelling hair, no regrets about using the straightener. These days I even avoid the straightener. Hair fall is normal.


My friend and I rate the shampoo and conditioner a good 3.5/5 
The product is aptly priced and you don't need too much of the product in one wash. I've had issues with TRESemme when I moved to India for the first time due to hair fall. However, after  three months the issue was over.


The products were provided by TRESemme. This review is the personal opinion of the author and was written as a part of the contest hosted at Indiblogger.in

From the Kitchen of mine

If I could have anything in the world, it would include a 5000 sq ft apartment in Manhattan with my very own chef, but for now I cook myself. Here's something that I cooked today and I just couldn't help but share the recipe.
Try this at home for a more appetizing experience.

Awakard #7 | The Roommate

The Roommate

<inserts doom music>

Have you ever watched a Business documentary? Ever noticed the background score is always one of those tragic - awaiting - doom compositions. Its absolutely disturbing and makes more sense in my case.

Awkward #6 | The Best thing is not a thing.



I don't trust people who find the whole Lemon story very optimistic, because they are the same people who tell others that MBA is the best thing that will happen to them. 

Am flash forwarding couple of months ahead to today. 

Today was the official last day of my seniors. We organised a fancy farewell ceremony for them. I realized today that while I would miss a lot of people, they were the same that I want to forget. 

People who tell you that MBA is going to be all cotton candy, hearts and bubbles are bullshitting. They are right about the work though - its a lot, but about the people we would meet? Wrong. Absolutely wrong.

What type of friends leave you for a guy who is a complete ass? 
There are the ones that want the free ride. 

Thanks a lot strange city. 

--xoxo--

Awkward #5

We're 5 posts down? That's fast.

The thing about little notes is that, they are cute, just like me :P



I've decided to take a pause from my 'looooooooovelife' and focus on a much important area for a few days. Committees. I desperately want to be part of the committees, but I made a major screw up and now I don't think I can officially become a member of any committee. I feel like a kid being drenched in rain. You don't want it, because it feels good for sometime and then you realize you need to dry yourself and the towel is already wet.

P.S I blame the wifi.

The Sunsilk Recharge Surprise

I was pleasantly surprised last week, when my doorman asked me to sign a courier. A big package arrived from an unknown destination. It was big, the size of a lamp. After ripping off the package, I discovered there was a lamp in it, but not just any lamp. It was a lamp by Sunsilk that included Sunsilk's new shampoo and conditioner.



A leaf shape brochure revealed more about the product. Created by Jamal Hammadi, Sunsilk's new Natural Recharge Shampoo and conditioner is infused with ginseng plant root extract for hair strength and vitality.

My hair generally is dry and gets knotted easily after a hair wash. I wanted this shampoo - conditioner combo to work, especially since none of the products I've bought since I've moved has worked for me.
After a week of usage, I must say am surprised.

The verdict :
My hair smells amazing. The fragrance lasts for a very long time.
My hair feels softer and is so much easy to manage.
The conditioner doesn't cause hair fall like the other ones I've used in the past.

Will I buy it?
Of course.
A 182 ml shampoo and conditioner bottle would cost me Rs 132 each.

Rating
3.5/5

Awkward #2

03. June. 2014

So am in this new city. Its interesting. I live a little on the outskirts of the city. Pretty close to the border. So its really exciting. One of these days I hope to cross it and explore the other state.
