It's black and it's brown

I am alive, kicking , not so busy so the only excuse for not blogging is sheer laziness.
I had a reasonably good week and managed to do almost all that I wanted to except may be house work which I am not sure if I wanted to do ;) 
Saw "Wall Street" the movie (new one) with husband (mentioning it just for the purpose of public service) was a complete bore my advice: watch the first one again and skip this one
I did click one outfit pic today, wore it to go shopping, not for my shopping guys and gals I am restraining myself from shopping nowadays(only a bit though so no worries). 
here it is

 Tights: Espirit
Necklace and Bangles: Coloba

And now I am off to watch the latest episode of Merlin, I am a fantasy junkie I told you :) 
How was your weekend???

p.s thanks everybody for the comments on the last post I loved them all, UB when I was there I also expected for SRK to pop out in a field in a DDLJ pose :)

I am back and glad to be here

I am finally back in Mumbai and do not intend to go anywhere for the next one month at least, 
I am done travelling !
usually it's the other way round and I complain for days about the end of our travels but it has been too much of a good thing these past few months 
So, for this month I will stay home, work out, do a bit of cooking, dancing and nothing :)
The weekend was fun and hectic with shopping trips to colaba and phoenix mills
not for me I am trying to shop less these days, a daunting task I must say
The trip was also great only regret being I was not able to meet up with dear Kiran :( 
And now here are the last lot of new zealand pics 

On the way to Milford Sound

Milford Sound first view

I am one happy girl in this pic

Milford Again

Ariel View Milford

Last leg of the journey at Mount Cook, behind us is a glacier lake the color of the water is grey cause it's completely pure

To say I was amazed would be an understatement

On the top of Tasman Glacier

Mount Cook the highest peak in NZ, to reach here you have to come to the small town of Mount Cook and there is only one hotel here so have to book in advance during peak season

This was the only thing available for vegetarians and I am not happy about it

 A random pic from akaroa(this place is 1 hr away from Christ Church again very beautiful)

This is the last pic we clicked in NZ in Christ Church

And here endth the posts on New Zealand

Nostalgia my friend

I am in Delhi right now(thats why no posts)and met my college room mate last week, needless to say it was great to meet her, especially since I live in Mumbai now and hardly get to see her
We spent the whole day together, shopped, talked, ate at fab places and did a lot of people watching so all in all a day well spent.
Meeting old friends, recounting college stories, discussing our previous antics has a curious effect on me, suddenly I start feeling extremely nostalgic and I yearn for the days gone by, for those late night coffee sessions in winters on the roof of the hostel, cooking maggi in the room, studying together before an exam and the gossip ;)
oh! how I miss that shared sense of sisterhood we had, now I am being dramatic but.....
Don't misunderstand me I am perfectly happy in the present and would not want to change my life, except for a few things of course(I am not the "I don't have any regrets" kind) and would definitely  not want to do the studying before exam part(horrified gasp)
I just feel that nostalgia is just one of the ways to connect with your past, I don't think it's bad at all
what are your views about nostalgia??

Obviously this is my friend :) and this post is dedicated to you my dear Reena thanks for being there for me always.

p.s will be back to doing regular posts from next week

Just another not manic monday

Hello all you wonderful people,
A very good morning hope you are having a good good morning I know I am :)
Do I sound disgustingly cheerful on a Monday morning???? that's cause I don't have to go to work and tomorrow I am going for a trip that will involve meeting family, friends and shopping yeeee :)

Now if this isn't reason enough for being happy what is???
To top that weekend was marvelous, husband and I had a fabulous time, we worked out and swam(had to nag him a lot to accompany me for both of these), ate out at new places(which I love doing, I abhor monotony) and watched  movies sitting hand in hand so all in all a perfect weekend 
I read a very disturbing news in paper on Saturday which made me very sad and I wrote a post also on that but then decided not to publish it cause why ruin other people's day right!!! maybe some other time 

Saw Rahul Mahajan and his wife in the mall completely surrounded by bodyguards, do I hear Rahul who???? 
for those who know him- why does he need  security, as if he is ever getting mobbed hah !!! ya ya sometimes I am mean(wicked laugh)
Camera still not working so I have posted an old pic

Late night coffee at Taj

Seven things you may have always wanted to know

I read this post over at Kiran's blog and the rules for this are you tell 7 things about yourself and then tag others
so here goes,
  1. I love eating maggi noodles and eat it at least once in 15 days
  2. I am a complete chatter box and start talking the moment I get up in the morning 
  3. Consider my self to be very empathetic and always try to understand a situation from other person's perspective
  4. Am a total couch potato and watch a lot of tv(no not the saas bahu dramas silly!!! but cool stuff)
  5. I love giving advice but never unsolicited
  6. I still read Enid Blyton stories sometimes and ya I read chick lit also
  7. My fitness role model is Bipasha Basu(an Indian actress) and swimming and belly dancing are my fav. form of exercise
I am not tagging anyone but would really like it, if you would do the tag, you can do it in the comments sections or make a post up to you guys :) looking forward to knowing you better.

Post of shame

I had written a post in June outlining my intention to do a Julie and Julia type fitness project with detailed guidelines, but as it is obvious I did not follow through,hang my head in shame :(
why obvious?? cause had I done it, I would have written about it
I do have a lot of excuses that sounded legit at that time, but as I said they were just excuses 
But as said earlier also GIVE UP I DO NOT 
So starting tomorrow I will go back to my project fitness, I do not have any weight loss goals all I want to be is fit and healthy and ya of course be able to wear what I want :):) thats realistic right???
I am also going to start a workout diary on the blog(got the idea from here
And now that I have shouted out my plans to the whole wide world I have to do it or.... nah!!!! there are no ors in this story fellas, I am going to do it (beating my chest and giving a war cry)
I have declared war on you love handles and junk food cravings and I intend to win
yaaa got a bit carried away I think the war cry had something to do with it(husband did look at me in a strange manner )

BTW its raining really hard in bombay and today I stood in ankle deep water with god knows what in it for 30 min looking for a cab, we have no infrastructure!!!!! no matter what the growth rate and blah blah blah
