Baby Showers

Recently, one of my colleagues invited me for her daughter's baby shower. I would for sure wear some fancy salwar or saree for Indians. But I don't have any clue about American baby showers. What they wear, what they do and what I need to gift. After scanning my closet for half an hour, this is what I came up with. I am comfortable in skirts and they are my all time favourites. Or may be I had to chose this to match with my new favourite shoes *shying* And I could come up with a nice gift too - Baby bath bed.

The fun part of their baby shower is the games. One of them is something like this - they would give us some choclates, ask us to smell and write the name. Sounds nothing, eh? They keep the choclates paste in diapers. When we opened the diaper, the choclate looked like a paste and imagine they asking us to smell it. Everyone felt yuck before they started smelling it a number of times to figure out the name. But after all its a game. My colleague even tried to taste it :D So, next time you have a baby shower, you can try this game. *Applicable to Indian baby showers also :)

When you are bad at posing, this is what happens..




What happens when you go to Chinki's beauty parlour? They make you look like them and you can raise your brows as high as mine..


Finally on the ramp :)

  6. Baby showers are fun. But I try and avoid them as much as I can because people inevitably ask me when I plan to have a kid!!! Annoying to say the least! Cute skirt!

Polka Dots Please

I love how Polka Dots are so versatile. You don't need to wait for a season to wear them or in fact wait for any occasion. I've got enough of my polka dots outfits and I love all of them. Especially this blazer.. I was bit skeptical when I bought this if it looks too formal and works well only as formals. But let me tell you. This will go with anything and everything.. for a work meeting with formal trousers and shirts, at the same time you can wear for a family dinner or carry it as a warmer for a cocktail party when you feel chills with your drinks. Or for a girls casual day-out wearing with a simple jeans and t-shirt like this one. 
Here, I styled it with my favourite jeans over a tube top, accessorised with a simple choker and an aqua shade finger ring (not well captured but another favourite one). Ended with a pony tail and black heels which I think gave a classy look, no? What do you think? Let me know how it works for you.

Summer Dream

Starting with some "long time no see" ranting.. 😀 I can't believe that its been such a long time I opened the blog to write a post. The last time I was here, I wrote a long travel post with some nice pictures and I lost the whole thing for the second time when I was editing the format. I got fed up and procrastinated it forever. 
Then this post was supposed to go in summer around August. But I realised that managing a blog with a full-time job (which you love the most), travelling, other hobbies and long to-do lists of personal errands is not an easy task after all. And falling sick in-between all this makes it even more worse. The blog totally had to take a back seat.
Coming to the weather part, this year has been a disaster. Every one of us felt like we got cheated by Stavanger. Or the Sun God decided not to visit us. Or the Earth didn't tilt well enough for Norway to get some Sun. Whatever! Would you believe if I say that this whole year gave us the sunny days th…

Indianizing Saint Patrick's day

Ok. Neither I live in Ireland nor do we celebrate it in Norway. But I realised very late that today is Saint Patricks day and started to look through my gallery to post something when I found these flashback pictures which I felt are apt for the occasion.. with the prints on the dress and leaves behind. Just that it is an Indianised version :) 

For the unknown, St. Patricks day is celebrated in Ireland with green costumes and is related to christianity. 

I felt a bit funny to post this.. but I'm also surprised not to find a single picture from Indian fashionistas showcasing for the day. Why not! I, anyway never had a chance to post these pictures on the blog. So I decided to post them away. Could you find something Indianized? Leave the link in the comments.
