Girlie Guide: Survive the Mumbai Monsoon! June 18, 2010

Rains sure have a way of making you come alive and feel all refreshed but when it really begins to  pour you want to ensure that you are geared up for disaster management! Well yes, that’s what its come to if you are living in the Maximum City of Mumbai. Besides getting yourself the right rain gear like a good raincoat and a big sized umbrella, there are several other things that will help you make it through the Mumbai Monsoon!

Shoes that get you places!

Come rain and you need to run to grab that sturdy pair of shoes (ofcourse! they must look good. Goes without saying right!) that take you everywhere. So whether they are knee high gum boots like the ones above from Tres Mode or cheap chic like these awesome red gladiators from Trios at Hill Road Bandra, get yourself a pair that you can rely on for those 4 months of Mumbai Monsoon Mayhem!

What’s a good monsoon without some hot and steamy beverages to keep you all snug? Get yourself a good blend of coffee maybe an exotic brand this time. And throw in some rich chocolate chip cookies and its the perfect way to enjoy the weather. Can it get any better now?

Apart from all this, whatever your comfort food is, buy it now and store it with you. From your favourite biscuits to your cup noodles et al. And of course those mush movies and good reads, keep them all handy so when you get a break on the weekend to enjoy that cuppa cutting chai and enjoy the rain outside your window, you know you are in good hands 🙂
