Birthday and Donations

As I am moving far from my 25 and reaching 30, my birthdays are not much exciting anymore. It's not that I hate 30s but I am no more going to be in my 20s which is sad. Though 30s have their own pros and cons as 20s, I am not sure if they can give me as much fun as 20s. But I am quite sure, I am going to be more wiser wise. I still have a lot of time to reach 30 though.
 
Anyhoo.. It was my birthday some 10-15 days back and I wanted it to be peaceful this time. Totally. No mid-night celebrations, no wishes, no phone calls, no birthday dresses, no gifts, no parties, no dinners, no plans.. nothing.. nada. I have taken it off from my networking sites [this is a way to know your real friends ;-)].
 
I wished my birthday to be like any other day. Like any other working-day. Moreover I never celebrate at my work place. I have always taken off from work to celebrate with my family or friends. But this time I haven't. I planned my day busy. I filled it up with work and sessions after work. So I thought this is the best way to avoid my birthday.
 
On the other hand, off the topic, I have been volunteering for an organization and doing some donations every month to the poor. I have done it for quite a while now and wanted to take a step ahead. I wanted to take care of a visually challenged student. I have known them for some time. I know how they lead their lives. I know the issues they face in their daily life and coping with them. I wanted to be a supporting hand. And I am too happy that I could do it. I am taking care of a person's education. I hope I continue and get no destructions. Also, on occasion of my birthday, donated some amount to this organization. Feeling good and blessed. Now I see more purpose of my living.
 
Coming back to my birthday, as man proposes and god disposes, there is always someone to spoil your plans. I wanted to know my real friends, but a true-est friend of mine got excited and posted birthday wishes on my FB wall. So there goes my FB with wishes. Then messages and phone calls followed. Then sudden celebrations. Then dinner. Then movie. Then gifts. And you might be knowing how much I love surprises. So overall the birthday plan was a huge failure!

Happy Sankranthi/Pongal/Lohri

Happy New Year, people! Hope you all had a wonderful start of the year. Mine certainly did that locked me up for first 2weeks. Had a busy start of the year which has so far been so good. 

India has just celebrated one of the largest festivals during last week. Its called Sankranthi or Pongal or Lohri depending on the region you are from and is celebrated in most parts of South India. 
A festive week right after the New Year ending the cold days with celebration of welcoming Sun God and beginning of harvest season. Its a close to heart festival for farmers but it does is celebrated across India. Of course being away from India, we just welcomed snow on this part of the world and miss having bonfires, doing rangolis outside our homes. And festive fooood, how can anyone forget that. Though I wouldn't enjoy the 3rd day of this festival anymore as I reduced my meat intake now. Yes, the third day called Kanuma is dedicated to eating only meat :(

Coming to the outfit of the day, this is a v…

Indianizing Christmas Day outfit :)

Remember the blog post I wrote last year Indianizing St. Patricks Day outfit
You don't, do you?
Then sprint over to that post first.

Ok, now that I have your attention.. 

Please note that I am back to blogging.. as always. I now started calling myself as "Occasional blogger" after I realised that I can't be regular here anymore. Though I have been reading other blog posts quite regularly, but writing one has become so hard for me. So I hope I will let myself have this tag at-least. 

While I was chilling on this 5days long weekend break loading myself with sugar, I decided to do this Chrismassy post. It is a beautiful time of the year everywhere and what more than dedicating it with a red outfit!
This dress is one of my all time favorites and very special. Its a simple ready-made dress (which I stole from my sister 😬). The color and fitting instantly caught my eye and I love it more for the mesh fabric and dupatta. I paired it with antique colored jewellery and brown san…

Polka and Neon love

While polka dots have been trending for a long time and will be in forever, I never thought I would love neons as much until I tried it a couple of years ago. Since my childhood, neon shades have been treated as such blocking colours, I didn't want to be an odd man out wearing them. And wearing them on a bright day can easily hurt the eyes of audience.  BUT.. one day or the other, you try what you got to try, isn't it? And a little bit of  colour blocking wouldn't hurt anyone either! 
So we did this shoot when I unusually had a chance to wear sleeveless dress in Stavanger. I wanted to keep it neon themed and chose to wear this light neon-pink polka dots dress that I got for my birthday few years ago. At the same time, didn't want to overload the neon, hence kept it simple with easy-going neon earrings and shoes styling with monochrome bag and jewellery. 
Now I see that I'm slowly incorporating these colours in my everyday style. Neons should become a must-have in a gi…
