Christmas, New Year and UAE!

PS: I know, I know. Wondering that its been 3months we celebrated Christmas and of course we are done with Easter vacation as well, and I am still with my Christmas vacation post? This post has almost been dying in my drafts. So I decided to get rid of this today. I can't ignore posting few posts - How much ever late they are!

My ideal/dream Christmas and New Year time is to celebrate with:
Heavy snow, making snow man
Decorating christmas tree
Inviting friends for dinners, parties
Become a santa, gift children
Eat a delicious cake. 

No wonder I failed one more time in last 3consecutive years. Every time I had a chance, I had something else popping up suddenly. Well this time, it happened again but in a different way. Infact in the totally opposite way. 

There wasnt snow, there wasnt cold. But there was Sun.
Couldnt decorate a tree but could get fresh air from it.
Friends, dinners, parties could never be missed.
Whereever I go, Shopping follows
Became a buddy to my niece
Ate loads of delicious food

And all this happened in UAEEEEEE *Ok, there should only be one E. That was just my excitement.*

How good that can be! I wasnt expecting this trip very soon as I thought I am just settled in this place. But it happened and in an awesome way. My long lasting wish has been fulfilled as well with mom and dad visiting at the same time. We all were together having fun for straight 2weeks. There wasn't a single day which I regret of not spending well. We roamed everyday, everywhere. Dubai, Abudhabi, Sharjah, Ras-Al-Khaimah, Oman. These are the emirates we could cover mostly. 

Desert Safari, Dubai: One of the famous and popular things to do in Dubai. Going in those high ride safaris, camel ride, belly dancing, good OK food etc.

Beach: Who doesn't love the blue waters!

Acquariums: This is the most beautiful fish I have ever seen.

Dhow Cruise, Oman: We quickly included Oman and this cruise made our trip exciting unexpectedly. We got a private cruise for our family and it made it more special.

Masjid, Abu dhabi: I am wondering why is this not in the World Wonders when Taj Mahal is. This one of those beautiful pieces.

Malls: For all the shopping freaks, 2 things would happen to you. 1. You are going to go mad with loads of shopping at worthy prices. 2. You would feel jealous or be bored looking at the malls at every corner of the roads. 
Dubai Mall, Dragon Mall, Sharjah Mall, Center Point etc etc. Even kids are so much used to these names. My Niece loves the 2-Dirham store which is like the Dollar store.

Global Village: A huge shopping and entertainment place where they represent many countries, their culture, food, clothing etc. It could take more than a day to cover the place. And more than a week to cover all countries. I could visit many countries except India as I know what's going to be in there.

Tall buildings, Dubai & Abudhabi: These are the most beautiful huge and tall buildings I have seen ever. This a very clean place at one end and could be dirty at other end like New York.

There are many more miscellaneous places to go around. It was such a worthy trip!

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…
