So here’s all that happened. Tried to capture all the girly and gorgeous stuff! Enjoy! πŸ™‚

Sugary Sweets. Creamy Treats. July 9, 2010


Long Kurtas & Short Kurtis

Long Kurtas & Short Kurtis

It was regular rainy day in Mumbai when I had less work to do and was in mood to look all pretty, catch up with my girlfriends and just be! You know what I mean :)! I was leisurely walking down the Wodehouse road with an umbrella in one hand and my mobile in another when I looked at a pretty pink n white board that said “SUGAR”. A new store? What? When! I had to step in.

Spot it!

Nr. Colaba Post office, this store is in the interiors of Colaba, walking distance from Charagh Din Showroom. When did this come in? How did I not see this earlier? The name did it for me. It was a girly name. It was inviting and I had time on my hands. I started walking towards the store. I walked in. And I was mesmerized even more.

TOPSY-TURVY! All tops no pants. The place has a range of semi-casual, dressy, dainty tops with laces and pearls in pinks, peaches and whites. You know those dreamy outfits the Yashraj women are wearing on the ott farms, the lacey stuff, the feminine cuts, the free flowing fabrics. Get the drift?

An assortment of 20 designers stir up the recipe and make Sugar sweeter. Tops you can wear to dinners, dates, weddings ofΒ  mates et al.Β  Starting at Rs 1200/- I think you should consider their peasant tops and floral prints. They are particularly pretty and I haven’t seen them anywhere else yet. You know what I also like here? Their clutches, which were not the usual in your face, bling bling designs, they were classier and subtle. Your mom can carry them and so can you.Β  A lot of outfits can also be part of your trousseau if you are not a very fussy bride. So there you have it! Looks like Sugar is a store am heading back to very soon. Aaah. My birthday isn’t far away and the store is hop-skip-jump from home! πŸ™‚ I could get my birthday outfit at Sugar and it will turn out to be SuperSweet!

Foot in mouth. Fluorescent Flats. Et al. July 6, 2010


Tres Mode Sale!

Tres Mode Sale!

Fluorescent Flats. Gorgeous Gladiators.

So I have the best job! I often get to start my day by reviewing malls and merchandise rather than entering cluttered cubicles. And so today was yet another day at the mall and it became even more special as I received a text on my phone saying “Tres Mode” 40% off! I immediately started thinking about the gladiators I lusted at on their window display and the fluorescent green flats….aah! I so needed the latter to brighten up my dull days and dowdy outfits. And somehow I made it to the store, tried a couple of pairs but I knew my eyes were set on that Neon green shoes. I had made up my mind about them a long time ago. There was no looking back. We were meant to be together. Without any guilt or after thought, I decided to take the plunge and thrilled with the 40% off I did it! Yup! I got them! πŸ™‚ Hooopppie! It was definitely a SuperKICKshoestart to my day!


Edgy Evenings: When I shot my mouth off!

While my day kicked off on a good note, the evening had its moments when I decided to be the scatter brain self that I am. Tired and pooped after a hard day of work, I was on the mall crawl again with my darling dearest hubby aka my best friend aka life partner binging on burgers and holding hands and being mall rats et al. At the same time over 30% off my girly brain was preoccupied with work and so were 20% off my fingers which were busy texting away at light speed. I was supposed to share feedback on an employee my publication was hiring and I ended up messaging the feedback to the same person who was being hired instead of the manager. DAMN! Now, thankfully I didnt let myself go in the message and the content was suitable for children and adults alike. BOY! Iam crazyy. But this is certainly not the first time I’ve had a foot in my mouth. There have been several occasions and am supremely confident Β that many more will follow.

Got your foot in your mouth? Do some “Damage Control.” While the situation is something that you cant always control, you can fix it by doing some DAMAGE CONTROL! Here’s how.

Shut up. Yup.. Right now. Don’t say anything. Beep!If you have spilled the beans, done the deed, spread the words and the joy with it, its time to zip up and seal your mouth right that minute; before you end up sounding guilty or causing some more harm, stick to the “Silence is golden” adage and you’ll most likely ease through the situation.

Diplomacy Dose. Now if you are someone who can think on their feet and turn a pumpkin into a beautiful Cinderella horse carriage only then should you attempt this one or steer clear completely. Think you can pour some sugar on the bitter banter, well then, good for you! Keep it simple, confident and effortless. Dont sound guilty or you will give it away. Be yourself, keep it real and sound like nothing ever happened and we are good to go! The “fake it” mantra can work here if you believe in it.

Girl Gossip. Did you have a “Foot in mouth” situation that was funny? hilarious? tragic? tormenting? unforgettable? Do you have a better way to deal with a foot in mouth situation? Something that’s worked for you or a friend? Girlie’s gotta find out! Post it here and let’s have some fun, make some new friends and get all girlie πŸ™‚
