Happy December :)

Hi Everyone, πŸ™‚

How was your weekend? πŸ™‚ Mine was quite exciting to say the least. πŸ˜›

On Friday Sanjeev and I watched the movie Frozen , which you guys MUST watch. It totally set up the mood for the weekend for us. πŸ™‚ As decided, I am trying to explore new places in Delhi itself. Well, it’s turning out to be quite an adventure. πŸ˜€

Saturday morning was spent visiting little shops in Meherchand Market, which I haven’t been to so far even after endless visits. Some of my recommendations are Kirana Store (for organic food items), Shades of India (the beautiful Indian textiles for home and apparel), Oh Layla (eclectic clothes), Crazy Daisy (quirky finds for home), Chez Nini Β (cronuts and lovely french cuisine), Cafe 88 (average food but lovely ambience), Elma’s (high tea, not to be missed)..and would tell you more as I find more. πŸ™‚

Then it was a long afternoon spent exploring the quaint lanes of Hauz Khas Village. Basically i had to visit the new Elma’s at TLR. I did. It’s more spacious and beautiful as before. Tried Eggs Florentine. Nom Nom! I am one of those people who like to eat brekky for lunch. πŸ˜›

Yesterday, Mr Husband I decided to head to Taj Palace Hotel for tea. Ironically as much as we love staying at Taj Hotels during our trips, we barely visit the one in our own city. We had tea in the beautiful open air Tea Lounge. The evening was slightly chilly. Just sitting calmly and enjoying the view turned out to be so nice and peaceful. πŸ™‚

But I think last night’s Koffee with Karan with Salman Khan really took the show to another level. I don’t think we have seen Salman so candid before this show. It was just perfect, imo. Karan Johar is an epic interviewer. Only he could ask questions he asked Β Salman Khan last night. πŸ˜€

And Happy December Everyone. :))

How was your weekend?

Have a super week ahead everyone. πŸ™‚

  5. Abhilasha says:

    OH oh oh..first things first…love those Payal Singhal pants..love her designs specially this collection was to die for..have been lusting over her black cholies (the ones with the lovely backs…noticed them?) also loved the sari Sonam Kapoor wore on front row i thing (u know which one im talking about :))
    moving on…u make me wanna fly down to Delhi just to have some tea with u πŸ™‚
    I had to put the kids to bed..so I cud not watch Salman last night…but its on record..dying to watch!!
    Lots of love

    • Rati says:

      yeah I know which one are you talking about. I think tisca chopra also wore something from the same print. The collection truely was amazing. you know I kinda like the stories and inspirations these designers use behind their collections . This was inspired by char bagh and the idea was the put the embroidery in print form on textiles. I think she did a brilliant job at that. πŸ™‚

      come to Delhi. Would have tea together. πŸ™‚

      I posted the link in the post above. wondering if you could see it. :))

      Loovveee!!! πŸ™‚

      • Abhilasha says:

        lol Rati…I saw the ‘virgin’ Salman interview..that guy is way beyond cool n yet so nice and grounded..love him πŸ™‚
        I did think he has started looking a lil old though…sigh!! I think I expected him to look like ‘Prem’ forever..if only..sighhh!!
        And yeah u r so right about designers and their collections…its so easy for us to discard a collection based on 1 picture…sometimes we fail to see the stories that are woven within the collection..the thought, the dreams and the inspiration. It really is a work of art…and should be treated that way πŸ™‚
        My next trip to Delhi..tea for sure πŸ™‚

        • Rati says:

          yeah I am glad he stuck to that even on karan’s poking him on the subject a zillion times. πŸ˜€

          yeah designer wear is special only because there is a good thought put behind it unlike the high street brands. Not that I dont love my zaras and mangos , just saying that the thought behind a designer wear adds a tad bit more value to the clothing. πŸ™‚

          yeah , sure. πŸ™‚

          Have a great day ahead! πŸ™‚

    I am so loving this look…love love the pants, and leather jacket toh always gets a big thumbs up from me. Did you scrunch your hair with gel? It’s a great look – love it.
    I worked all weekend πŸ™ and just finished watching KWK with Salman :D, which was pretty awesome! I agree, this is the most candid we’ve ever seen him. Bigg Boss is boring me this season, so glad KWK is here. Although, I do enjoy IDing Gauhar’s outfits πŸ˜›
    I want to see more of that orange blazer you have on!

    • Rati says:

      Thankoo. scrunched with mousse. πŸ˜€ yeah gauhar and her pr are doing an amazing job. she is playing the same well and her pr outside are working on her fb and twitter accounts to build the hype about her. if someone is going to go ahead careerwise after bb7, i think it’s gauhar. and umm… i cant say much about kushal. I am confused whether he is genuine or fake. 😐

      I’d style that orange blazer soon. Picked up from dubai in feb! havent worn it much. πŸ™‚

      thankkksss. take a break during the week. :-*

      • Devie says:

        I like Gauhar, even before BB (I think I’m one of, like, three people who watched her and Nigaar’s reality show πŸ˜› ). Can’t stand Kushal. 100% the romance is fake; she deserves soooooo much better! Couples always get footage, even the puke-worthy ones like Rajev and Sana, lol. I’m sure her PR advised her to get into a relationship in the house. Better Kushal, waise, than angry Armaan or married Ajaz πŸ˜›
        Oh, lord, swamped with work until Thursday, will chill after, perhaps Catch Frozen πŸ™‚
        Yes, please, orange blazer soon πŸ˜€

        • Rati says:

          hahah!!! you crack me up. lollll!!!! yeah you mentioned about it. Oh eijaaz is married. I got confused and then I somehow made up my own conclusion that he is not married. πŸ˜› so lame.. so lame… I dont like him all the more now. πŸ˜›

          puke worthy. hahhahhahha!!!

          soon soon!!! mwwwahhh!

        • Abhilasha says:

          Hey sister…I saw the entire Gauhar reality show too…that makes 4 of us πŸ™‚
          I dont really watch BB but saw 1 episode n am shocked to know Ajaz is married!! horrible behavior from a married mad..such an embarrassment for his wife n kid..feel sorry

          • Devie says:

            @ Rati – Yup, he’s married. Kushal apparently has a gf outside and Armaan is in a live-in relationship (well, outside the BB house) with some lady. What is it about BB that makes people forget their significant others? πŸ˜›

            @Abhilasha – whenever people enter the BB house, they’re given a general idea about the character they’ll be playing…it’s semi-scripted. Ajaz was brought in to create drama between Gaushal πŸ˜› …that’s why Salman kept egging him on these past weeks!

            In other news…#ineedalife πŸ˜›

            • Rati says:

              OMGGGG!! how super lame is this. I had already started seeing armaan and tanisha as a married couple. 😐 😐 I think I need to update myself on outside-bb-house gossip as well. 😐

              I think #theyneedalife πŸ˜›

              and I need a cup of coffee now. πŸ˜€

    πŸ™‚

  8. Surabhi says:

    Ratiiii.. you look stunning! And now I want to have tea in the open air. I do take tea in open every evening here.. but I miss Delhi Winters. Hopefully, will be there in Jan. πŸ˜€

    And thank you sooo very much for posting the video. We dont get star world here and I was despo to watch KWK. Normally youtube doesnt buffer easily but today it did relatively faster. Thankyou again but I can’t believe SK is a virgin! πŸ˜€

    • Rati says:

      thanks surabhi. yeah drinking tea in open air has its own charms!! :)) it was a great episode. glad i could help. πŸ™‚

  9. I love the leather jacket. And you look thinner here.

    And I watched the KWK episode yesterday. It was so interesting to watch the two interact: Salman being the cooly indimidating one and Karan always pushing his lines and making faces when Slman gave candid answers about the industry in his rapid fire round. Why ask those questions and make those faces? LOL, Karan is….. well, weird.

  10. jyoti says:

    Rati di! U look stunning! I so want a black leather jacket after seeing u. And the orange blazer is lovely. I have to pair up a pink blazer…. I am thinking to go with white pants and what should I wear inside the blazer? Please suggest some colour.
    And I thoroughly loved the KWK episode. How smartly he asked and salman answered it tooo. I was laughing over the virgin thing he asked salman so many times. Lol! I found salman’s rapid fire answers not so great. But all over it was fun watching him.

    • Rati says:

      Thank you jyoti. πŸ™‚ You may wear a white tee only and add a pop of color through your blazer. You can pair it up with prints/ bold colors in shades of green, blue or orange, purple. and with bold colors, you may wear a statement neckpiece or even throw a scarf around your neck. Hope that helps! πŸ™‚

      Yeah it was quite fun watching him. πŸ™‚

      • jyoti says:

        Thank u so much! πŸ™‚
        There is one thing I wanted to ask about IMBB.
        Why doesnt a mail comes when you or anyone replies to the comment? Always have to come back and check it so many times.

  11. khushboo says:

    u know what, i explored hauz khas village this weekend….it was wonderful..loved the atmosphere..n the historical buildings as well..I have recently shifted to delhi for my first job and have been loving it..the food, the people, the shopping..n the winters..! Plus the chance of bumping into people from the IMBB gang!! πŸ™‚

    • Rati says:
