Weekend Fun!

I watched 3movies this weekend. One of them being my regional movie (Dookudu), had an experience of running, standing and get stamped in queues as it was the first day. I never saw theatres here so crowded before. But it was fun as I got the feeling of India where you stand in long queues to get tickets cheaply rather than buying them in black, talking to all strangers around you about the stampedes and the movie review.

The movie is ok and the comedy felt to be good. It is a mixture of many other movies. What would the directors do when they don't have any other story or when they find their story already released? So, they try to create all kinds of buster news to boost the audience watch their movies, But as expected it isn't a super duper hit (I say). But as usual, Mahesh is good (I am not his fan). No wonder why Namrata married this guy. :)

The other two are 'Rise of the planet of the apes' and 'I dont know how she does it'.
I, kind of liked the first one being an animal lover. Its about an ape born in a research center but brought up by the hero. It is pity seeing animals used for research purposes. They start some research on this tiny ape's mom and this somehow becomes highly IQ'ed (than a human). Its so cute running and jumping here and there and how it hugs the hero. I was missing my doggie a lottt. I hug and twist her so much and it never barks at me except once she kissed my lower lip till my blood oozed out :)No, I never took any vaccination and still never bark like her!

Frieda Pinto is the actress. She didnt have much role but she is ok. I dont remember if I ever mentioned this to you guys. Someone here told me that I look like her. I took it as a compliment and just ignored. But later I had to believe when someone else (at a different place, ofcourse) told the same :P

As they say we came out of monkeys or apes, the expressions of this ape looked like us. LOL, it gives happy, sad and angry expressions. The movie made me cry when they keep this ape in jail where she meets many other friends being tortured and needed rescue. So, this is the story of this ape which helps all her friends to be out of jail and go to their home. The movie turned to be little boring at the end full of apes. If they would have played it for some more time showing apes, I would start feeling that the person sitting next to me is also an ape. Funny!

I liked the last movie 'I dont know how she does it' which is the story of a working mom of 2kids and how she tries to manage her job and home. I was missing my manager, who dresses really well, punctual, disciplined, have 2kids but still manages work so nicely. I, sometimes, get inspired from her. I tried to concentrate on her dressing style in the movie. I was surprised to see the actress name as Kate REDDY. I know this is a south Indian family name but never know this is so famous. The only thing I hated in this movie, is the part where people suddenly pop up and start talking about the actress. I REALLY hated that. Everything is shown in the movie and why do they need to disturb it and talk the same thing again? Anyway, this is a good watch than a review.
This was my lovely weekend. How about yours?

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…
