To the mines & back...

by , in
Temperatures going up.
Invitation to one wedding & one reception.
Workers' absence, excuses & general irresponsibility driving me crazy!
Orders. Deliveries.
Making tiny hearts out of foils of chocolate wrappers. After the chocolate has been devoured.
Missing the guy, who was on a work trip to Bombay.
Begging him to be back soon.
Some more missing.
Consoling lonely heart by eating more chocolates. And making more hearts with the foil wrappers.
Doing some Sale-time window shopping.
Doing some Sale-time actual shopping - a pair of blue-framed sunglasses from Accessorize - at a 70% discount, of course!
Doing some Sale-time online shopping - couple of more sunglasses from ASOS.
Weekend trip to Dhanbad - a fair/fete, a visit to some of the coal mines (reliving those Geography lessons), a tête-a-tête with a coal Mafia don, great hospitality (we were staying at a family friend's place), 2 days away from work.
Back to the grind!



Pretty much sums up the whole of my last week.


Now I'm back.................to work, orders, deliveries, issues with the workers et all.
Oh! And the guy's back too! :))





This is what I had worn on a day out with the city bloggers towards the end of December last year (Yes...am still on a backlog......so, sue me!)


 







And....this is the amazingly chic necklace I got myself with the Crazy & Co. giftcard that I won (!) via the Coco & Vera giveaway!!! I have been in love with it ever since....what do you think?

By the way........the sales are on & how! If you are too lazy to head out to the nearby malls or stores to indulge in some heavy discounts, just head over to the I Know website and get some great designerwear at discounted prices just with a click!!! I Know has amazing designer garments for both men & women and you can avail a flat 30% discount at their website by using the code IKSFLAT30. Cool or what? :D



This week, I have to attend one wedding and one rice-eating ceremony (to celebrate the first feeding of rice to a child at an age of six months) of a friend's baby boy!!! I'm feeling cornered, I tell you....!


Have a great week, y'all!!!!


See you soon!

Year of the Snake

by , in
Yes...that's what 2013 is. According to the Chinese zodiac calendar (which starts from Feb. 10, by the way).

So, this year, we are all gonna be sly & slithery...and dangerous too! *hissssssssss*
[Remember Nagini, Voldemort's pet snake, from the Harry Potter series???]
Lol! Just kidding. :P

No. You don't need to worry about my mental state.
It's not changed.
I'm, in 2013, exactly what I was in 2012. Maybe, just a bit wiser, more mature, more experienced.
But then, maybe I'll be saying the same things same time, next year too!


So..............what all resolutions have you guys been taking for this year???
I have made a few myself...but mine are more like goals that I have set for myself, not empty promises that I'll end up breaking in a couple of months....


Well, they say, this year is going to be good for everyone.......let's see!

Good or not good, it should at least be safe & devoid of incidences that are proof of some of the most gruesome facets of human nature.  That's all I want. That's all I pray for.


I also have lots of interesting ideas that I want to use in the blog in this year - new sensibilities, awesome collaborations, new ways of showcasing outfits, opportunities for interactions & much more! So stay tuned......and read on! :)


I thought of starting the year with a very simple outfit. But one that I personally liked a lot - maybe due to its simplicity, maybe due to the colors, maybe due to the comfort. Whatever the reason, here's an outfit from somewhere towards the end of December 2012.
Ya ya...I know....but then all outfits I have, archived, right now, are from last year...so please bear with me!
Hope you won't judge me for being backdated. Or indifferent. Or lazy.







Ok.........I love this military-inspired double-breasted jacket of mine! It's smart, it's thick & it's in a neutral hue. What more can I possibly want of a winterwear???
In fact, the same adjectives & appreciation go for my tan laced booties too! <3







Beige double-breasted jacket: Wills Lifestyle
Kelly green pants: BK Market, Kolkata
Beige & brown houndstooth stole: Shoppers Stop
Floral print bag: Esbeda
Jade stone ring: ALDO
Tan laced booties: Catwalk



Let's start off this year with a bang & a boom, guys!!! So that we can hear the sounds of celebration right till the end, 12 months away!!! :D


Wishes for a wonderful year ahead once again!

And a very Happy Tuesday too!!!! 


Ciao!
