Smile please

All of us see  people everyday(other than family);  in the elevator, in the gym, at grocery store, in the mall etc... some of them are familiar faces and some are new but what i have noticed of us women is: we see, we stare but we will not smile, we will do a complete head to toe scan of the other person but will not say hello
Once or twice someone tries to say hello by trying to make eye contact but no, people will not even give you a chance to say hello
what is up with that???? we can stare at a person to judge the clothes or......
but we can not say hi!!!!
It does not cost anything to be friendly on the other hand it might win you a friend
of course the above is not true for everybody and there are perfectly nice normal people who smile at you, say hello and even compliment you, instead of staring at you trying to mentally figure out the place from where you might have bought the awesome bag
that's all I wanted to say on this topic
you are welcome to add to this 

and here is the outfit pic:

We were going to an expo and I wanted to wear comfortable clothes and shoes, which is actually true for everything I wear :) wanted to add a bit of color to the simple white tee and jeans outfit so I wore colorful bangles  and carried my pink bag 

Hows your weekend going?? doing anything interesting??

Color blocked

Hello All,
I hope everyone is having a lovely week, it was a holiday here cause of 26th January and I do love middle of the week holidays :)
This is sale season and it's becoming very difficult for me to stop myself from buying stuff after looking at those flat 50% offs but I did not give in to the shopping demon inside me and only bought some stuff that I actually needed or lacked yeee!!! for that

Here are a couple of outfit pics in which I am not wearing pajamas(cause that is what i was doing lately)

have not shown my face cause of extremely silly expressions in all the pics of this outfit
Skirt: Vero Moda
Top:Hill road
Shoes: Venus steps
Necklace: originally came with another top 

An extremely simple and cool outfit which is perfect for mumbai mausam(weather)
Skirt&Top: Espirit
Shoes: Catwalk
Bangles: Dadar
Couple of months back I had written a post about getting out of my comfort zone when it came to dressing and am happy that these past few weeks I have worn something other than jeans, though it' still my garment of choice when I can't think of anything to wear but may be that would also change
have you done anything in the recent past that involves leaving your comfort zone???

Blogger return

Hello All,
How's the weekend going???
Mine is slow and lazy involving tasty food and watching Eclipse on DVD :)
I have been a very irregular blogger and that has been a conscious decision but I still read all the other blogs though I have been a bit slow when it comes to comments sorry for that(sheepish smile)
So what have I been doing?? here's a list:
1. Cooking a lot, trying new dishes and I am thinking of blogging about it also what say you??
    I am no gourmet cook but a novice cook cooking by trial and error
2. I am learning a new language Italian yeeeee!!!! and it's so beautiful just hearing the teacher speak is 
3. House hunting which unfortunately did not result in anything huh!! damn you mumbai real estate
4. Regular workouts  
I also started logging my food daily in and it's very useful as it tells you the nutrients that are lacking in your diet and also tells you about the foods you need to eat to make up for it, I recommend it to anyone who is trying to eat healthy 

Here are a couple of outfit pics I managed to click

Happy New Year

Wishing a happy and prosperous new year to everybody

May this year bring happiness and fulfillment of wishes to all

and how did you celebrate it???
I was very brave this year and decided to go to a club which was a pretty good  experience and the traffic was not too bad either
but now that I have done that next year onwards it would be back to a quite evening with family and friends at home :)
Is anybody the resolutions kind?? would love to hear them 

here's a pic of me going out for a movie and the movie was Band Baaja Barat 
yes I saw it again I think it's the fact that the movie transports me back to delhi  every time I watch it that attracts me

Shoes: Bangkok
Bag: Bandra
Necklace: Bandra
