Who doesn't like surprises?

I am so so happy!!! Happy for surprising me who likes surprising others. *dancing*

Didn't understand? Read on.

I am always a kind of person who likes to surprise people, in any way. A sudden visit to home, wrong calls to friends, gifts to my niece, online shopping to special ones and so on. 

This thing started from my dad when he returned home from his business trip. I still remember those days when I was a little kid (1st or 2nd class?) and when my dad left to Mumbai on his business trip. As the little girl of my dad, I cried, cried and cried again till he returned. My mom always consoled me that he would come back soon with my gifts. I never bothered. 

One pleasant early morning, I couldn't believe my eyes seeing my dad at the door. For a moment I thought that was a dream and started to cry in sleep. That was the first surprise I remember as a kid. He also surprised me with a water bottle in the shape of colgate paste. I loved it. I took that to school and announced it to everyone that it was a gift from my dad's trip. I used it for years even after it was totally spoiled. I didn't feel like trashing it.

If you are wondering why I am talking all this suddenly, there were many more surprises from family and friends which touched me. And here they are, again. I meant surprises!

Will you not be surprised when you are late to job, when loaded with work, when boss is after you, when there is no time for phone calls, and you receive a Samsung Galaxy Tab from the mail guy? Yes, even I was! Totally surprised to receive it from The London Boy. Who would expect a tablet in return for a bunch of flowers? :P I was told to wait for an office acknowledgement letter which the boy gave me as a clue but my innocent mind couldn't interpret that *battling eye lashes* ;)


And then another surprise from sister and niece. The girly stuff. But still a surprise you know.



My niece always does this - hides something in her hands and asks me to close eyes and says 'SAPPAISSEEE' which means I should open my eyes and give her my bestest surprised/shocked/unexpected expression. And there she stands with her broadest smile and her eye brows raised. She then informs everyone that I was surprised coz of her. Isn't she sweet? I miss her!

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.

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…

What is L.O.V.E.?

The four lettered happiest, hurtful, mysterious (and what not!) word causing happiness, pain and loads of confusion in lives of people. While I started to write something about it on this "so called" special day, nothing popped up in my mind. Like nothing. Nada. 
I questioned myself - Can we really say/write about love? Can we really define love? Isn't Love a feeling to experience and an expression to let someone know about your feeling? There are SO many kinds of love that words alone can never do it justice. Probably that is the reason they simplified it to the phrase 'I Love You'.
Love towards our parents, siblings, husband/wife, kids, family, friends, pets, acquaintances, and even to a stranger, we show our love and respect. Each one of us has our own feeling, experience, definition and obviously our own ways of expressing it.
Love is like a sneeze, I feel.. you know.. the restlessness before and the relaxation after. Its exactly the same. And you cannot explain…
