Howdy! After a lovely break, some official travel and some more personal travel I am back to conclude this two part series where I explored sustainability in jewellery and design with a lovely designer Rebecca Reubens who owns and runs a minimalist accessories line called Baka . If you are coming here after reading my first post about this brand, thank you for sticking with us, if not, don’t forget to check it out here! Now let’s dive right in!
10 Days with a Carry On! – #achievementunlocked
It amazes me that I am back to do a blog post in such quick succession! #proudmoment ! So I recently went on a 10 day trip to Europe and I did it with a just a carry on and like all bloggers do, I had to be extra and blog about it! So here we are!
One Tadka Martini please!
Now that the caption got you all curious, let me tell you this post has nothing to do with cooking, it has nothing to do with drinking and no! it has nothing to do with creative naming either (though I must say I’m mighty proud of “Tadka Martini” Patent material right? Loljk!)
Sprightly Sunday Inspiration
How would you react when someone says we met each other, really liked each other, I asked her out and ever since, we have been dating. You would probably say aww..cute!
Next, what would your reaction be if the person continued the story saying, before we actually got really knowing each other, we separately had a huge crush on each other for ten years but never got the nerve to take it forward but finally we are now together. You would probably be shocked, your awwww might be louder and shriller and you would end it with a multiple U-ed cute.
Now, the person adds : after less than a year of dating, I moved abroad and ever since, (3.5 years to be precise) we are in the happiest long distance relationship. You’d properly gag off the cuteness overload yeah?
That readers is how my boyfriend dramatically explains our love story to everyone. It’s hilarious how he builds up the momentum by strategically telling the story.
But this post is not about that. This post is about him! This post is about what an amazing person he is. This post is about how quirkishly sportive he is (he can break into a random dance in the middle of a crowded as hell mall just to make me laugh). This post is about how genuinely concerned he is about his girlfriend’s watchman’s baby daughter after she underwent a major surgery. This post is about how mad he is about winning, Kobe Bryant, spicy food, Shilpa and rosemilk equally! (See how deftly I added names there? Mine to be specific! Smooth!). This post is about how he thinks respecting parents and all elders is the coolest thing to do. This post is about how he thinks it a personal victory when he didn’t bog down to peer pressure of any sort. This post is about how dedicated he is to his basketball and undergoing a surgery to pursue his sport was nothing but a minor glitch for him. This post is about what a good human being and a friend he is and how he can become best friends with anyone right from rickshaw drivers to his physiotherapists. This post is most importantly about how he is the most important reason why the herculean, dreaded by many long distance relationship has gone on so smoothly and about how he makes the whole wait so effing worth it.
Every time you leave, I give you a parting gift, a scrapbook, a picture, a surprise, something, anything and I know you love your surprises. This time I was wasn’t ready to let you go. So I had planned nothing. And I saw you were sad about that. This post is my little parting gift to you. Know that you are my true hero and an inspiration to me and many more.
Here’s to us, to our amazing vacation and to many more to come! I’ll adore you forever and perhaps a day more!
