Photo Diary: Gujarat

by , in
There's a new epidemic in town!
It's called Marriage.


You are laughing? I have got more than three close friends....all getting married within a span of one week.
One of them is getting married in Agra. For which I have to travel with her and be out of town for 6 days. In which time another 2 friends are having their wedding. Which I'm not being able to attend. For which I'm getting emotionally blackmailed by all & sundry.

Now say!

At the end, I went for a college buddy's wedding today (and heard no end of it since I won't be able to attend his reception party on the 1st!); leaving for Agra on the 1st, enjoying my BFFs wedding for 5 days, coming back to town on the 6th afternoon; rushing to another childhood friend's wedding on the 6th evening (again hearing no end of it as she had invited me to be a part of all ceremonies from 5th); and trying to drop in at a work buddy's wedding sometime on the 6th evening itself! Phew!!! 
I should be certified an expert in running wedding marathons! 

The scariest part, though, is not the inundating number of wedding invitations flooding my desk right now. It's what to wear in all these back to back parties! Since, all thanks to Facebook & instant smartphone-clicked pictures, one (specially, one who's a part of the fashion industry) cannot, by any means, commit the heinous crime of repeating outfits at such occasions!!

So, as you can see, I'm facing a fashion block. Too less time. Nothing to wear. The story of all of our lives (I'm sure you agree girls!) *sigh*

Hence, I thought of skipping fashion for this post & sharing with you some snaps of my recent (well....October was, technically, just one month ago) family vacay to the vibrant state of Gujarat!

Hope you enjoy the pictures while I mull some more over what to wear for the next 10 days!!!

Till then,
Keep it stylish!


Ta-da!

The Mist

by , in
A slight chill has set in in the air. The dawns are getting misty.
The sky was unusually blue today. With little tufts of clouds, much like torn bits of cotton wool.
Sachin Tendulkar, the God of cricket as we know it, has played his last match. An era has come to its end.
All the world & its neighbour are out partying on a Saturday night.
I'm home, watching the Google reunion ad on YouTube with my sister.
My guy is gallivanting around Goa with his office colleagues. (Annual departmental meet, my foot. Whoever works while in Goa???) I'm left here to miss him & envy him. *sigh*
Aah! I have Sour Punk candy to drown my sorrows in. :D



This is from a day I had met up with a couple of friends for a fun evening of (window) shopping & gossiping! And this is from the archives. ^_^


 




 



That's fellow blogger Soumi.....and yes, I do love this girl to bits!!! <3

Spent this afternoon watching science fiction monster movie The Mist on WB. The engaging adaptation of the Stephen King novel had one of the most heart-wrenching & miserable endings I've ever seen in any film before.

Looking forward to Monday. Coz that's when the guy comes back to town! 


Ta da!

Fashion Diaries - III

I swear this is gonna be the last post on my fashion week sojourn last August.
Yes. Then we'll move on to newer outfits and events.
Trust me, I have loads of pictures straining to spill out of my archives on to these pages.... *sigh*

Wrapping up the Lakme Fashion Week series with a quick outfit post on what I wore for the last two days at the event. :)



This was my avatar on the 3rd day of the event. 
Don't worry...I was not feeling blue......just wearing it! ;)

Posing with my sweet & pretty teacher-turned-friend Anamika Debnath. She used to be my professor at college.....but we hang out as pals now. Such is the strange way of life. :)

Also, she is the one sweet enough to have taken all the earlier outfit pictures of mine throughout fashion week, never once tiring of all the posing & the retakes. Oh! What a great time we have had on that trip!!! *nostalgia hits*


So, with this, I drop the curtains on the Fashion Week series. 
Will be back soon. 
Till then, move it & shake it!! \m/


Asta la vista guys!
