All over the place!

So.....basically, I've been running around like MAD lately!!!

What with all my work, working on the Spring-Summer collections of my clothes & accessories, my mom meeting with a teeny-tiny accident & having to look after her, networking, catering to orders - and all this in this scorching Indian summer heat - I'm so not getting any chance of photographing my outfits!! :( of such a crazy schedule, I'm still maintaining my virtual presence in the big, bad world of the web!

It all started out with the MAAZU blog going online this month. "What blog", you say??? Well, MAAZU is this brand new, wonderful online shopping website, started by Ali Baqri & Yamin Durrani (two heavy-duty brains from IIT), which has to-die-for clothes & accessories by very talented designers & high-street brands. The website also has a great, dedicated-to-fashion blog where you'll find some stylish individuals of the Indian blogging community coming together & contributing awesome fashion content! And of course, "yours truly" is  one of those select few who write for the MAAZU blog!!!
You can check out my "Royal" profile as a Maazu blogger here! (Can you believe that they call us the "Maazu Royals"!!! *feeling high & mighty already*)
Sharing some of my takes on various aspects of fashion on the Maazu check 'em out! :D

Soon after......Rati from IMBB (Indian Make-up & Beauty Blog) contacted me saying that they want to feature my humble blog as one of the blogs they love! It came as a total surprise.....albeit, a nice one! So, come 29th March, & there was my blog featured on the awesome IMBB along with my interview as to the whys & hows of my blog..........they call it their "We Love Your Blog" feature........I say, I love you guys too! ;)

This has been my month, you think? Wait till I tell you the latest news!!! 
I got the pleasant-est surprise in a long time (barring the impromptu dinner date my guy took me to a couple of days back - that was quite a wonderful surprise too! *blush*) when I saw my blogger bud Bella tweet about me being listed in the Street Style segment of The New York Times! I mean, I know I had submitted one of my old outfit snaps for their Gingham Plaid themed street style segment this week, but I had no hope whatsoever of making it to the much-edited & selective list. So, imagine my joy at seeing myself up there among the selected 26, gracing the page of the online edition of the NY Times Fashion & Style segment
Here's a sneak peek of the feature for you guys, but make sure you check out the full feature & other listed fashionistas here!

In case you are wondering, this snap is from this post from way back in Feb 2011

I'd just like to say a BIG THANK YOU to all my lovely readers/friends/fellow bloggers/followers for being such sweethearts always!!! I couldn't have done any of this without your constant love & support! Your encouragement is like a stimulant that gives me the enthusiasm to reach out to new goals & achieve new milestones. If ever I could meet you guys, I'd give you each a hug that would have said it all! :)

I know this post has way too many links........but do take the time out to click on each one of 'em.......I assure you, you won't be disappointed!

Till we meet, I'll be around on the www for you all! :D

Enjoying my "15 mins of fame",

P.S.: From this post onwards, I'll sign my posts with my real name. Aliases are fine for hobbies or things I may not take that seriously, but when a part of my whole identity is determined by a thing that has helped me make dreams come true, then the mask has to go down - it's time for the real "me" to step out.
