Leibster Award ^ 3 !!

Oh Yes!! I was nominated not once not twice but thrice people, thrice for this leibster award and I am nothing short of elated about it. I am indeed honored and so kicked about the fact that three pretty ladies have nominated me for this award. A big shout out to Shauna Swartz of All things recessionista, I think you have an amazing sense of style and I love how you make no bones about loving and adoring your husband and family. Next thank you to the pretty Nessa of That chic fashion blog! I love your detailed style of analyzing fashion related topics and it shows the research gone into each post and your love for writing. And when I was in the process of drafting this post a third nomination came from hidden harmony world and thank you so much for that. It makes me feel so special 🙂


The rules are pretty simple:
  • Write a post answering the questions you have been given
  • Thank and link the blogger(s) who nominated you in them – Done. 🙂
  • Nominate five to eleven other bloggers for this “award”

Since I have been nominated by three people, I have nearly 30 questions to choose from 😛 So without boring you guys with answers to all those questions I choose my favorite questions and answer them 😀

Here we go!

1. How long have you been blogging?

While I have been reading some blogs for a long time now, it took me courage and a lot of self motivation to start a blog of my own in June. So that 2 months ago. (Actually, exactly 2 months since I started on 10th July 2014) Ha!

2. What is the most important thing that you want people to take away from your blog?

I am basically a Chartered Accountant and I started blogging because I wanted to speak to like minded people about fashion and that’s NOT possible especially in my nerdy field of work 😛 So, I would like it for people to like what I write and how I go about writing fashion related posts and also, I would love it if people took back some inspiration to start writing, or doing whatever it is they have been wanting to do but have been putting off just because of their own apprehensions.

3. What is your favorite accessory?

Ha! Nice one 😀 But I can really not be partial to one accessory as such. So Im going to say it depends on each attire and my mood. But I think I can more or less narrow my favorites to statement necklaces and nice heels.

4. Describe your style in three words.

Comfortable, Colorful, Confident (I swear I dint do that C-C-C thing on purpose. 😛 )

5. What is a trend you are loving right now?

Two trends actually! Crossbody purses or messenger bags and neon.!

6. What is you’re everyday makeup look?

I must state, as much as I love clothes, footwear and accessories, I’m a big zero in the make up field. Also, i feel confident only when I have the bare minimum make up on. And that would be eye-liner and kajal (kohl).

7. What is you’re dream career?

Again, its a plural. Careers! Interior designing, events management and fashion designing. Simply put, I think I would do well in the creative field. Er..and yes here I am being a Chartered Accountant. Ya whatever, next question. (For the record, I love my job! 😛 )

8. What is you’re preferred way to style you’re hair?

Another nice question 😀 This hair department, I have a weakness for. I have silky flyaway type of hair and so I seldom leave it lose. However, I love experimenting new styles and my most preferred style is wearing it into a ponytail or plaiting it up. Effective way to get it out of my face!

9. Do you usually focus on your eyes, or you’re lips when applying makeup?

Eyes. Eyes, only eyes. Lips? who lips? what lips? 😛

10. Which camera do you use for blog photography?

Yes. Now is the time to clarify that bit. My blog is full of tacky sad photos because I make my sister click pictures after I come home using my phone. :/ er..yes. Thats that! I cant help it!

11. Most unforgettable beauty or makeup experience?

Its actually the lack of it! I once read a post on some blog as to how make up is like covering your true self, etc and got so inspired by it that I went make up free to office that day. To get two things clarified, 1. By make up, I of course mean only eye liner and Kohl and 2. I have really large, slightly droopy eyes. So the whole day went by with people asking me if I was sick, to which I might or might not have lied saying yes and my manager might or might not have asked me to leave early to take rest and recoup *evil and creepy grin*

12. Place you had best coffee ever?

Haha…knowingly or unknowingly this is a very easy question for me because Indians are known to grow and make the best coffees in the world (after Brazil of course I guess) and all moms and grand moms in the house are pros at making coffee. So the coffee at home is the best coffee I’ve had. 😀

13. Bargain Shopper or Brand Hunter?

A bit of both. Aren’t we all? 🙂

14. Who do you prefer? Rugged men with no/minimal skincare regime or men who use cleanser, moisturizer and eye cream?

Thats a no brainer right there. Woohoo rugged men, who give a damn about skin care, about dressing sense and about their appearance as such seem to intrigue and attract ❤ !

A few bloggers I nominate for this award include:

1. A fellow CA whose blog I happened to chance upon and have loved ever since, A regular Indian girl

2. A new blogger but one who writes like she has been born to do that, Nicola’s Bali Blog

3. the beautiful indian – Four girls each with a distinctive sense of style and amazing attitude.

4. A versatile fashion blogger whose style and choice of clothes, locations and words I am absolutely loving, w in wonderland

5. My internet sister (too bad there is a sister equivalent to “Brother from another mother”), my hi-fi and chest bump buddy and my partner in crime (ya we wish! more like partner in solving calculus!) the one and only Z from deep blue and sea foam greens

My restricted list of five questions to these lovely ladies are :

1. Why do you blog?

2. What is that one crazy thing you’ve done and pretty proud of in your life?

3. If you had three wishes from a non-tricky genie, what would you wish for?

4. What is your wierdest quirk?

5. The most beautiful outcome of blogging for you has been?

Thanks for patiently reading this long-as-a-saree post you guys. 🙂 Have fun answering my questions!

One more award? Hell YA!! :D

Hi folks!


I’m so excited about the fact that I got nominated for a second award and that’s not even the best part. I got nominated by a blogger whom I look up to because she is so versatile in her writing and reading her blog is such an inspiration in itself. Thank you for nominating me for the “One Lovely Blog” award http://mommyx4boys.wordpress.com/ 😀

These are the few rules to be fulfilled to accept this award.
1. Thank the person who nominated you for the award. – Done that 🙂 
2. Display the One Lovely Blog Award on your blog.
3. Share 7 things about yourself.
4. Nominate 15 bloggers you admire, and let them know by commenting on their blog.

7 Randomly crazy things about me. Here goes!

1. I am not a tomboy per say, but I am so at home and comfortable hanging out with guys. Guys are better friends and chilled out to be with than so many girls I know 😛 that said, I have some amazing girl pals too..but still!!

2. I was quite weird as a kid. When kids my age wanted to become Doctors, Engineers and Scientists, I seemed pretty chilled out wanting to become an interior designer. I still think that’s the Coolest profession, but who would say they want to become one when they are 7 years old? 😛

3. I’m a morning person through and through. I can get up at even three in the morning but cant stay awake beyond 11 at night!

4. My dream honeymoon destination is Seychelles. I mean have you seen their beaches and resorts?? *Hear hear my prospective groom* 😛

5. I am quite the irritatingly animated talker you would meet. People say even if they mute me, they might understand more or less what I’m rambling about with just my expressions. Eyes and hands!

6. I have come to realize that more than writing my posts I’m liking reading others’ posts and commenting and interacting with them a tad bit more. Mind you, I’m pretty socially awkward person who never likes making the first move in real life but here I’m having no qualms making new friends. Yes blogging my-thing yo! LoL!

7. I’m pretty good at putting myself in others’ shoes and seeing situations from their perspective and I’m proud that I can do that. Feel like that makes me a better person 🙂

Well that’s that! Hope you enjoyed reading my quirks and facts! And now for my nominations. For a change, I’m not going to nominate 15 people. I’m going to restrict myself to 8 blogs I love reading the most.

1. I know this is weird, but yes. I return this nomination back to the one who nominated me just because I think she s great at what she does and I seldom scroll down the page without reading her new posts. So here you go http://mommyx4boys.wordpress.com/

2. I recently came across this blog and I loving this blog and this blogger to bits. http://deepbluesandseafoamgreens.wordpress.com/ I love you talking-writing-ranting style. And it seems like I’ve known you for long. Funnily we met just two posts back. 😀 Lol.

3. http://happilydpressed.wordpress.com/ is another blog I’ve come to love. I fell in love with you and your short stories. I know you’ve got nominated for many such awards, but this is my small way of saying you are awesome. 🙂

4. http://layeredindulgence.wordpress.com/ this girl is all about style and I love that 🙂 You rock!

5. One more blog which talks about this bloggers everyday woes but in such a nice way. http://aworriedstudent.wordpress.com/ , your follower stats shows what an amazing writer you are 😀

6. This is the second time I’m nominating her, but I don’t care. I really look forward to reading her posts and her sense of style and her neat dressing sense is something I haven’t seen anyone else achieve. That’s http://willfullyelegant.com/ for you 😀

7. At the cost of being repetitive, this is one more blogger who gets attires and entire looks so right. And her fashion and shopping tips she gives at the end of each post are unbelievably bang on! 😀 http://thefashionhuntress.wordpress.com/ I’m your fan!!! 😀

8. Well, reserving the best nomination for the last is my thing, so my favorite-est blogger for reasons more than one 😉 is http://chasingyellowcabs.wordpress.com/ . I think shes cute, smart and such an inspiring fashionista. I love your writing style and your easy and comfortable fashion sense ❤

Thank you for patiently reading this post. Once again thank you for the nomination! 🙂 In case you guys are not already following these blogs, please do so before you miss their amazing future posts. 😀 Have a nice weekend ❤

One month, one award! :D

Guess my excitement when I get nominated for a blogger award one day short of completing one month as a blogger! Mighty cool eh? 😀 The charming anumohan nominated me for this “very inspiring blogger” award! I feel honored and totally kicked that I have been so lovingly accepted into this blogging world, and so soon at that! 😀
Now for the proud moment. Displaying my award! Ha.!


The rules of this award are:
• Thank and link the person who nominated you: Thank you Anuradha. Your enthusiasm and zeal is so contagious and inspiring 🙂
• List the rules and display the award : done and done 🙂
• Share seven facts about yourself
• Nominate fifteen other amazing blogs and remember to comment on their blogs to let them know you’ve nominated them and provide a link to your post.
• (Optional) You can proudly display the award logo anywhere on your blog e.g. on your sidebar and also follow the blogger that nominated you.

Now for 7 really random-ass facts about me:
1. I hate my foods touching or mixing in my plate. They can have a big socializing party in my tummy, NOT on my plate!
2. For an otherwise lazy girl, Im extremely particular about keeping my feet clean. I wash them a couple of gazillion times everyday
3. I’m a lime soda (salt) type of person. No meal at a cafe or restaurant is complete if I dont have lime soda :/
4. When I’m feeling down right mental at work I greet my colleagues like this


Yes. Most of them have decided I’m borderline crazy. Teehee!
5. I’m extremely competitive. (Even if its something as basic as breathing I have to be able to breathe longer, steadier and deeper than others. :P) But that’s not the fact I want to highlight. The fact is that I act like winning or losing makes no difference to me. 😛 It does make a difference. Duh.
6. I love Calvin and Hobbes. Yes. I still do. I own the entire hardcover series 😀
7. I feel the reason for my existence in the world is to drink the perfect rasam (a soup like liquid made of tamarind stock) my mom makes. :’D

The list of blogs I loved reading in no particular order include:
1. whatwouldvwear
2. carascliche
3. fatfreefashion
4. felinecreatures
5. imserenel
6. idealism never goes out of fashion
