The best presents don’t come in boxes

orange black outfit

This week has started on a fabulous note for me. First, the FacebookΒ triumph.

Second, my entry got selected on Jimmy Choo’s 24: 7 Style Maker’s Page. You my check it HEREΒ . Shai told me about Jimmy Choo 24:7 months back but I was just a bit hesitant at submitting my pic there. I finally did a few days back, and they approved it. It felt pretty good. From India there are a very few entries. You can check the entries city wise. Mumbai features Mandira Bedi, and Shahzan Padamsee from the known faces. If you own a pair of Choos, you should submit your entry too. πŸ™‚ Thanks Shai. Β πŸ™‚

Third, Visha (IMBB contributor) shared a link of a website that featured me as one of the ‘Top 5 Bloggers Bringing Diverse Beauty to the Web’. You may read that article HERE.

Some renovation work is starting at my home this week and I am already panicking. 😐 My mum-in-law is visiting us. This would be my first Diwali with her. Totally excited. πŸ™‚

How are the Diwali preps coming along for your guys? πŸ™‚

  16. Jabberwocky says:

    The Jimmy Choo is awesome! You look like a total diva. πŸ˜€ And as for this look, I didn’t notice the little doggie ring when I checked it out on the IMBB page. It’s so crazy (in a good way). πŸ˜€ Is it a dog or a wolf? Or Professor Lupin in his Loony avatar? πŸ˜›

    I’ve been trying to open that Top 5 Bloggers page but the website is down for maintenance. 😐 Will check it out later.

    Our Diwali prep is going slow now after a hectic few weeks of renovation. I’ve been planning to finally learn driving and blackmail my parents into getting me a good car. Can’t wait for the cracker season though! Gonna go and buy bombs over the weekend. πŸ˜€ No, not an environment fanatic when it comes to this season. I like my Diwali noisy and all boom-boom type. πŸ˜›

    • Jabberwocky says:

      I meant “Moony” avatar for Prof. Lupin. I guess ‘Loony’ came from that song sung by Peeves – “Loony Loopy Lupin”. πŸ˜›

      • Rati says:

        It is a wolf actually. I feel so powerful in a weird way after i wear it. πŸ˜›

        Me too like my diwali all boom boom but i am quite scared of lighting the bombs. I only light anaar bomb because it gives me time to run away. πŸ˜›

        Good luck with your driving lessons. :))

  17. Naina says:

    Badhaiyyaaaan kudiye πŸ˜‰ Lady Luck is on your side babe!! *happydance*
    Play teen patti this Diwali and make loads of moneyyyy and then buy me an amazimg present πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ (Currently I only accept presents which come in boxes, big boxes, which read Zara or the likes πŸ˜› )
    I have shame to shame colour ka shirt πŸ˜€

    • Rati says:

      i remember your orange dhoti pants naina. I went crazy about them. πŸ˜›

      I dont know how to play any card games. :(( Only patte pe patta . 😐 and bluff too. but I make a bluff and cant stop laughing. Very very lame. πŸ˜›

      zara had boxes? oh I must get one for myself then. Ha!!! πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

      thankiess :-*

      • Naina says:

        brrrrrrrrrr !!!! boxes jisme Zara ke goodies hain. πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜›
        I am going crazy shopping online for random stuff πŸ˜›

        • Rati says:

          what random stuff are you buying?? bras ?? πŸ˜€

          • Naina says:

            that is not random!!! that is bhery bhery essential πŸ˜› πŸ˜‰
            I am buying coffee mugs and stationery and tshirts with quotes written on them πŸ˜›
