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.

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 of  mates et al.  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.  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! 🙂 I could get my birthday outfit at Sugar and it will turn out to be SuperSweet!

HIDE-design Husband July 8, 2010


Did I tell you that I won a Hidesign bag recently? I didn’t? Seriously? Well then it must be all the excitement and paranoia that followed and all the congratulatory messages that kept me busy and I must have completely forgotten about this one! So as usual I bagged myself a nice irresistible gift from Marie Claire Magazine which was  Hidesign bag worth Rs 4795/- Cool eh? Uber cool I say! The girls couldn’t believe it. My mother thought it was some pouch or something that came in but this one’s like a BAG BAG! Like a proper hand bag you can take to work with so many pockets for so much stuff you can keep! BTW Marie Claire Magazine has some awesome subscription gifts incase you wanna get the mag (Adidas and Satya Paul gifts up for grabs!!)

The Hidesign-Husband angle.

Now I happened to be with a client when this goodie came home and my husband kept telling me that this bag has arrived and he continued to ask me if I had bought it. And me with the no. of contests that I enter, I couldn’t remember how this one came home and kept asking him to check if it had come wrongly to my address. Infact I was prepared to return it until I saw the letter that came along with it. Indeed, I had won the bag! 🙂

Hubby Happy!

So my husband was as exhilarated as I was that I won the bag but I guess he was a tad more. Ever since I won the bag he has been sneakily pottering around it, fidgeting with the strap or zipping and unzipping the pockets, inspecting the bag from all angles. Aaaah. I think I know what he thinks. He is perhaps not convinced that the bag is genuine. As its worth a whopping 4795/-  But when I asked him why he did that? He said that he was doing a mere quality survey. Anyway I thought it was cute. He fiddling with my bag! 🙂 I kept telling him if it was a male Hidesign bag, it would be all his! 🙂

P.S. Keep up with Marie Claire India & Hidesign Bags on their websites!

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?
