Surely Girly! July 15, 2010


SHE is SURE.

SURE Deodorant

SURE Deodorant

Hey you! How are things? Wassup you busy city girl you? Loads of stress? Is the rain spoiling your mood or better still cheering you up! I wanna know! I wanna know! Write to me at girlyhour@gmail.com and tell me how your day was and I promise to make it better 🙂 Ok here’s all the stuff I’ve been upto. I’ve been out and about as usual on the look out for girly things to see, shop, sniff!

Perfume Person OR Deodorant Damsel?

Now Iam a Deodorant person. I don’t know about you. Iam not so much of a perfume person. Well one of the reasons being perfumes leave stains on your stuff. Well I’ve had not so nice experiences with perfumes in the past. And if you are always in a rush you don’t want that perfume to leave all pretty patches on your clothes right? Well I definitely do want to have that special perfume and use it on big occasions but deos work for me. The bottles are non breakable. The nozzle is user-friendly (unlike a nozzle of the perfume that I was gifted that came off a bit too soon and now the perfume rests peacefully in the bottle and has become more of a display item lying in my drawer each time I open it) So make the deo user-friendly and all game. Big bottles are cool but breakables are not. Keep breakables at bay for girlie is always at play. I had been meaning to try SURE the one Miss Ghajini Girl Asin has been promoting off late? When you say SURE, it makes you think (I know it’s an irony. It shouldn’t make you think but it should make you feel sure.) But what I mean is that it makes you want to think about the product and how confidently it promotes itself. So I went ahead and got me a SURE roll on. I had no preconceived notions except I thought to myself that this better live upto itself expectations; and I think I can say that am happy with it.

SURE thing!

  • It’s non sticky.
  • It’s fragrant
  • It’s not the over powering fragrance but yet its nice and pleasant something you can wear to work or on a date.
  • What’s more the bottle is quite compact so it fits in your sling bag as well as your mobile pouch let alone your big office bag.

Girls like it when you are SURE.

So sure works for me. And what a coincidence! I met a girlie pal of mine today and she too bought the same thing yesterday. Hmm. I think Sure is not just working for me alone. Well girls have a knack of choosing something that promises them stability, a sure shot guarantee, commitment (guys get the message) and I guess Sure does have that promise too in its brand. And it delivers.

Happy pictures make a HAPPY ME! 🙂

You know how you look at a color and your heart goes BOOM! A flower in your living room and you are all thrilled? A radiant rainbow and you feel your dreams are fulfilled? Pictures and colors have a way of making us happier than we think. I dont know if its color therapy but I definitely do know that these are some of the things, colors, sights that are making me all smiles 🙂 Hope they will do the same for you!

Shiny Happy Pictures.

What’s in your bag baby? July 12, 2010


You know I wonder what you have in your bag there. Me? Oh I have like tons of stuff, some of it others find useful, some of it they find useless, all of which I find exciting! I do. I thought of all the stuff in my bag when I was passing the security test at Infiniti Mall this morning and it was being scanned. As my bag passed through the belt, I noticed the cop looking at the screen carefully and I felt he was a wee bit amused at all the things he spotted!

Its my bag and it has all the things that I am gonna need and I think am gonna need and there are also things which I almost never need but they are still in it as you never know right? So to give you an idea, there is a mini pink torch which no points for guessing I bought from the train. Gosh! They sell some practical stuff in there.

It’s practical yet its pink- goes in my bag and on girlyhour! It also has all my USB chords entangled with one another, they are inseparable. Then there are 2-3 diaries all of which serve a definite and different purpose ( a post on my diaries later) You are getting the type of stuff am referring to? How about you? What do you carry in your bag? Is it something crazy? Wild? Exciting? Pink? I have to know this. You gotta tell me like now!

Birthday Shoes! Shoes! Shoes! (Echo)

Birthday Shoes! Shoes! Shoes! (Echo)

Watta Wonder Week!

Yea! It seems that way; I mean the way the week began was with a bang! And I did manage to get my first birthday gift of this year. YAYAYAYAYAYAYAY! There it is, right on top! Running shoes from Reebok! (Ooh that rhymes!) You think they are cool enough? I love them. Well, they are very similar to the DKNY shoes I spotted only more comfortable and cheap. There are pink balloons floating all around me and my face is shining in a baby pink cloud as I write this; there is music and melody in the world; and am the most beautiful girl! Aah. Birthdays have a way of making me all mush 🙂 Coming to the point! Here’s how my monday began!

Chatting. Chaat. Chicks.

An old friend, my first birthday gift, catching up with a girly pal, lots of chatting on the phone with friends, clients, meetings, sincere students doing their homework for a chance. It was a good day or a little better if I may say. I feel nice. Oh! Wait a min. I know what this is about. You know how am always saying about numerology and how all the nos that amount to no.3 are my lucky days – well there you go! Its 12th July! And I know what it was all happy! Its 12. 1 + 2 = 3 = LUCKY ME 🙂

I bought me some bling from the train really gorgeous! Some beads, some fake gold. The joy in the these gold look alikes; well for clumsy, scatter brain sirens like me, all this works perfectly. I can forget it anywhere and not be all guilty. I can scratch it, break it or even throw it away if I please. A girl’s gotta have her choices right? Imagine being stuck with the same old boring gold bangle all the time. Yikes!

I also gobbled down some chatpata chaat for lunch (skipped the meal again! Oops! Iam so dead if family reads this) But what’s life without a little teekha in a day? 🙂

Girl bonding! Comb Cleaning!

After doing some business in the burbs, I hopped onto a train back home and just when I was about to get off on my destination – station; a friend from the past, from college days appeared with a smiling face! 🙂 I was glowing, gleaming and was delighted to say the least. You know I rarely get to hang and bond with my gal pals as all of them live so far away and I discovered she is right next door and we can totally hang out and dance n shout n go window shopping out n about! Ok, time to rewind a wee bit and pause. Before the friend surfaced in the train appeared yet another exotic – if I may use that word – product! A comb cleaner! 🙂 Now I hate soaking the comb in the mug and going in the sun getting rid of the murk – so this comb cleaner at Rs 10 is god sent.

Monday is looking good and am optimistic that the week will be wonderful too! Here’s wishing you a fun, happy, loving and a beautiful and blessed week ahead. Ok that didnt sound like me at all! Happy raiding the sales! 😉

VERUSCHKA WOW!

I may have gulped down gallons of coffee but I sure know what am saying. Don’t read too much into the title, instead focus on what’s coming up! So remember how you dreamt about a shoe that was designed especially for you and just the way you want it to look, feel and even sound! Here’s your chance! VERUSCHKA SHOES are letting you tailor-make your heel, shape, color and size. I so love the sound of this! You know am one of those girls blessed/cursed with extraordinarily large feet (So is Deepika Padukone btw) and am more often than not frowning as designs that I love are not blessed/cursed with my feet. So this is really cool. Iam all gung ho about this event and you girlie?

Shoe it let’s do it!

P.S. Maybe all girls with large feet should get together and form a club or something and inform each other as soon as they spot shoes in their size and have a shoe support system read each time the other is depressed about not finding a shoe in their size.  Sounds good?
