“When life gives you lemons, chunk it right back.”

Hi Everyone, :)

How have you all been? :) My tech karma has gone bonkers. Earlier our home theatre conked out. We got that fixed.Now my laptop has ended up at service centre for days to come. So now I am working on my first MACbook I purchased (the white one that they don’t make anymore). I noticed the IMBB files back from 2011 and I was so overwhelmed seeing the old pics. :)

Anyway, since the home theatre is fixed now. Sanjeev and I went and purchased some 40 DVDs. We have been watching one movie every single night. Here’s the list .

  • Chocolat : Warning- don’t watch it empty stomach. :D It was yummy, heartfelt and soo nice. I mean you can’t go wrong with a movie that has a ton of chocolate involved in it. Can you? ;)
  • Finding Neverland : It is totally a big screen movie but we watched it at home and I couldn’t stop thinking about it for long. Sooo soooo beautiful. Peter Pan fans? Watch it! :)
  • Mary Kom : Watched it at the theatre. BRILLIANT. Huge respect to Priyanka Chopra for playing the great life of Mary Kom so well. She was just so right for the role.
  • Lone Ranger : Okay Dokey…
  • The Book Thief : A brilliant movie. I am short of words to describe how goood this movie was. It is based in Germany during the time of World War II.
  • Drinking Buddies : Rubbish. Don’t bother. :P
  • Transcendence : I watched this movie during the flight. Sanjeev watched it at home. It’s a psycho movie. Both of us ended up feeling weird after watching it. :P Why Johnny Depp? Why? :P

I also spent some really good me time at Taj, Vivanta last week. What used to be Claridges at Surajkund is Vivanta now. Totally visit it. :)

I also got invited to the opening of Smokehouse Deli at DLF Place Saket yesterday. You must totally visit it. It’s like a vintage English tea room and your old smokehouse combined in one. It’s right across F21 on first floor. I can’t wait to have conversations over tea and cakes soon. :)

How has your week been? :) I am going out for two days with my parents. It’s been long I have had any trip with them. So I am looking forward to that.. :) At IMBB, I am just enjoying my crazy review phase. There are sooo many to come and I suddenly feel I don’t have enough time. hahha!!

Have a great week and weekend all of you. Loadss of love and please recommend some more movies for us to watch. Thankkkk you. :-* Continue reading

Hello, September!

cos skirt

Hi Everyone, :)

Have have you all been? :) I went through a major holiday hangover to an extent that I did not step out of the house for a whole week after coming back. :P I also went through a major IMBB withdrawal symptom. :P I was like glued to it for hours at a stretch without blinking my eyes. hahaha! So now I am back to being normal, working, meeting my friends, stepping out and would get back to shopping as well. :D

I seriously can’t wait for winters to come. I am already adding layers to my day to day looks. For this outfit added a cotton scarf. I went out with Sakshi to Social Offline in Hauz Khas Village. We had the the craziest time there. :D I wore a polo neck tee with a leather vest on top. All Black. Are you also waiting for winters? :))

How was your weekend? :)

And Happy September to all of you!!! Have a great week ahead. Mwwwahhh!! :-* Continue reading

How to Plan a Europe Trip- Italy and France

How to Plan a Europe trip

When we were going to Turkey, there was a lady sitting beside us in the flight. She had a connecting flight to Europe from Istanbul. When we generally queried her where all she was going to Europe, we discovered she had taken a package where she was covering 9 countries in 11 days. 9 countries in 11 days! We were really horrified to think whether it was a vacation or a marathon. But such are holiday packages. And if you are one of those who are going to Europe for a ‘once in a lifetime’ trip, by all means book a package and cover as many countries as you can. But if you want to have a relaxing holiday, get the feel of the place, do a good amount of sight seeing, and really enjoy Europe, then read this post. :)

Paris : Notre Dame Church, Pont des Arts

tarun-tahiliani-silk-skirt-orange

Hi Everyone, :)

We enjoyed a beautiful sunny day on our last day in Paris. We experienced the most random weather during our stay but the last day was such a beautiful summer day that I decided to dress up in my most colourful summer clothes and enjoy the view of the city. We had to check out the same day so after packing and setting our luggage aside we went to see the beautiful Notre Dame Church and the Love Locks Bridge (Pont des Arts).

Food was one of the most amazing things in Paris. We explored a new cafe every single day and it felt as if they have really mastered the culinary world. And also coming from a long trip from Italy where we got tired of eating cheese and tomato sauces, this was such a welcoming change. Well, I’d give the coffee credit to Italians but rest of the things, I’d say Parisians do it better. Being vegetarian the choices were always limited but whatever we ordered was done to the T. We even had an Indian Meal (Mr. Husband was craving for it) and that was also sooo good.

In Paris, we stayed at the Ares Eiffel Hotel. Expect the location (8 minutes walking from Eiffel Tower) there was nothing noteworthy about this hotel. This was the only hotel during our trip that turned out to be disappointing. The breakfast lacked major creativity, the rooms were small and it was expensive for I don’t-know-what. The high points :P – the bathroom was made by Versace and the toiletries were by Hermes. loll!!

This is my last travel and outfit post from Paris. Will ask Sanjeev to write a post on ‘How to Plan a Europe Trip’. He planned everything and it was an incredibly well planned trip. :))

Hope you enjoy the pics. :)  Continue reading

Disneyland (Paris) – Happiest Place on Earth!

disneyland-fun

Hi Everyone, :)

Sanjeev and I had one full day for us to spend in Paris. The choice was between the Palace of Versailles or Disneyland Paris. Well!! we chose to head to Disneyland and it was one of the most fun day of our Paris Trip. Disneyland truly is the ‘Happiest Place on Earth’. There are thousand of people in the park and all you see is happiness all around. Little kids dress up as Disney characters, adults getting into their kids mode, someone buying a fluffy candy, someone getting ready to meet their fav disney character, someone taking pictures, and someone proposing to his love. Disneyland is a dream come true. If you EVER get a chance to visit this fantasyland, don’t miss it! :) Continue reading
