Diwali Disaster and Ra One!

No, my Diwali wasn't a disaster coz of Ra One. Its just another random title!

They say Diwali is a festival which makes you peaceful over evil by burning/bursting out evil and getting good. My mom would force me to light atleast a candle to throw out all the evil from me :) If this is true, don't we like to celebrate it daily? I don't believe in all this. If I want to have some peace, I make it right away at the moment. I don't wait for that RIGHT time. For me, the right time is right here! And yes! I love celebrating Diwali.

This is the second year in a row we couldn't celebrate Diwali here. I still remember last year spending dussera and diwali completely at temples as I was new to this place and no other chance except visiting temples with families I know. And this year, not that my connection with God is decreased but wasn't so much attracted to temples. We just planned to go to office in Indian attire, visit temple, see the fire works and have some good food.

But my day started as a disaster. As soon as I logged onto FB to wish my friends, all their updates caught my attention and I started missing my family and friends. The whole day I was numb, dull and left office very early. I wanted to spend sometime all alone. The best thing I could do is sleep and rest. Unfortunately, only after reaching the temple, we realised that the fire works are done the weekend before and nothing on Diwali except some pujas. Another Diaster! :(

Oh wait! There are these few good things that happened too - dressing up for office, good indian food and the photoshoot. My roomie and I are never bored of these! :)

This is what I wore for Diwali.. Dress for the day!

My dad's favorite pose :)

Dress: India
Earrings: Forever 21 (Friend's :))
Shoes: Payless

Coming to Ra One, many people advised/suggested not to watch. But nevertheless, I watched it! (I don't believe things untill I see with my own eyes you know :P). Only after watching I understood that its lot better than the Hollywood series like Terminator. I agree SRK is looking foolish funny and they tried insulting immitating tamilians (which is not so good) showing SRK eating noodles + dahi with hand. Did you just say yuck? The much laughed joke is where Kareena says Kondom Kondom for Konjum Konjum (means little little in Tamil) :) I obviously liked the Chammak Challo song and I am still wondering why people dint like the movie (I have strange taste sometimes, never mind!).

P.S. I just received my iPhone.. yayyy!! :D

  4. Firstly, you are looking good in the pics. And festivals are meant for speeding some good quality time with family and friends. Don't worry next time you ask your parents to come there and you can celebrate together.

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…
