Birthday and Donations

As I am moving far from my 25 and reaching 30, my birthdays are not much exciting anymore. It's not that I hate 30s but I am no more going to be in my 20s which is sad. Though 30s have their own pros and cons as 20s, I am not sure if they can give me as much fun as 20s. But I am quite sure, I am going to be more wiser wise. I still have a lot of time to reach 30 though.
 
Anyhoo.. It was my birthday some 10-15 days back and I wanted it to be peaceful this time. Totally. No mid-night celebrations, no wishes, no phone calls, no birthday dresses, no gifts, no parties, no dinners, no plans.. nothing.. nada. I have taken it off from my networking sites [this is a way to know your real friends ;-)].
 
I wished my birthday to be like any other day. Like any other working-day. Moreover I never celebrate at my work place. I have always taken off from work to celebrate with my family or friends. But this time I haven't. I planned my day busy. I filled it up with work and sessions after work. So I thought this is the best way to avoid my birthday.
 
On the other hand, off the topic, I have been volunteering for an organization and doing some donations every month to the poor. I have done it for quite a while now and wanted to take a step ahead. I wanted to take care of a visually challenged student. I have known them for some time. I know how they lead their lives. I know the issues they face in their daily life and coping with them. I wanted to be a supporting hand. And I am too happy that I could do it. I am taking care of a person's education. I hope I continue and get no destructions. Also, on occasion of my birthday, donated some amount to this organization. Feeling good and blessed. Now I see more purpose of my living.
 
Coming back to my birthday, as man proposes and god disposes, there is always someone to spoil your plans. I wanted to know my real friends, but a true-est friend of mine got excited and posted birthday wishes on my FB wall. So there goes my FB with wishes. Then messages and phone calls followed. Then sudden celebrations. Then dinner. Then movie. Then gifts. And you might be knowing how much I love surprises. So overall the birthday plan was a huge failure!

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.
