What’s in my bag


     Quite a good while ago Holls and salls shared whats in their bags and passed on this meme to me…. I planned to go for it every weekend but of course did nothing about it… can’t carry the guilt anymore…. I love them both….. 🙂 so here is mine.

  I carry huge bags with hardly any stuff inside…. I love big bags….and to fill them in I always carry a largish stole…..saves me from the crazy AC ( whats with the extremes, Bah) everywhere around…..and also fattens my bag  nicely…

This is my current bag…..sorry about the  tasteless pictures……I am very bad at photography….I dont have to state that, ain’t I?

Ignore the cushion….here comes my current love….which is actually a suprise gift from the husband… ( he has finally learnt  my taste)….Isn’t it very retro ? Its made of cotton and is lined with Jute , I simply adore the scooter print…..its quirkyly ethnic and screams  ME.

As I said there is nothing much in my bag 😦

  • Blue and Brown wallet from Holii- Paisley or Ambi’s are my first love, I am crazy about this motif.
  • Few Essentials : comb, lipgloss from Nivea, Lipstick from maybelline, scrunchie.
  • Hand cream from Fab India : this is a must…for my super dry hands
  • A pen …
  • And of course the stole…..its made of very soft wool and cotton blend….yes, I need it ….I work in almost  freezing temperatures.

Yes, I love blue… shows 🙂

I usually carry a book to read and a  bottle of water too….and a pair of sunglasses ( which are now lying in the car) ….see didn’t I warn you, its quite boring….

So who is doing this tag next ? Let me a have a peek folks !


Giveaway time from Holly and Sally


Blogging has enriched me… …and offered rewarding friendships……and my style soul sisters Holly and Sally are up high in this category… many a times it feels surreal…..I identify so much with their style and sensibilities and the astounding ease with which we get  along  ( without an existence of physical medium) …..all this in the virtual world mellows me…..  

Congratulations dearies  on the 250th post…  commemorate this milestone they are hosting an awesome giveaway…. the queens of accessories are going to giveaway some glamorous stuff…..Each piece is Love…… Lets try our Luck Ladies  🙂

How I’d wear them

1)     The filigree earrings:

-With a nice knee length fitting denim skirt and crisp white casual shirt

– a nice kashmiri embroidered salwar suit 

2)     The Balis’ : with all my pastel colored chikan kurta’s and suits ; delicate chiffon sarees in pastels

3)     The neckpiece: With many solid color kurta’s ; jeans and t-shirts ; handloom sarees…

   These are just a few which I can instantly think of. I sure will come out with many more ways to carry them…am a very spur of the moment types when it comes to mixing and matching……

And the Award goes to…..


I have been completely off the radar for quite a while….until Laksh brought unexpected and much needed cheer to my life….work’s getting hectic day by day and I find zero enthusiasm in anything else…..and its no fun at the workplace too….this further intensified offlate leaving me totally demotivated …..and as a result, my blog suffers…but last thursday changed it , quite a lot…
