Giveaway time from Holly and Sally

Standard

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…..to  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……

            Over a girly talk today at work one of my colleagues complimented that she thinks I have good dress sense and likes my clothes very much…..after yesterday’s miserable clothes catastrophe this seemed tailor-made….put me over the moon….yeah, I am wacky that way 🙂

Tagged!

Been tagged by Madhu to list out my five addictions. Going by my fondness for tags I immediately jumped off the couch to write this. Lately I had been caught by a severe bout of writing hebetudinous , hence the incessant absence from blogging land. And this tag just suspended that.

Although its quite a task to stop at just five. Though I am not a person of obsessive habits, I have my fair share of manias. And after much deliberation here come my top five,

1. Books : To call them an addiction is an understatement. I am a book lunatic. They are like drugs to me. I read crazy. I simply love it. And am very deeply attached to them. I also have this silly fear since childhood, that if I don’t read or write anything that day, I will be left behind in the world. 🙂 Absurd , ain’t it?

2. Water : I gulp down gallons of it. I just need to have a bottle of it around me all the time else am distressed. I sip it like every 5 mins, Yeah all through the year and in all weather conditions.

3. Block-Printing : I professed my love for it time and again in this space. Am vehemently addicted to it. In fact anything ethnic and handicrafty is my cup of tea. I have a large corner in my heart for arts,crafts, weaves, antiques, traditional stuff. They are my Nirvana.

4. Kohl : All forms of it, be it Kajal/powder/eyeliner, am game. I love its smudged look. Gives a lot of character to the eyes. It has monumental significance in my life 🙂

5. FruitYoghurt : Be it home-made or store bought I have an appetite for it anytime of the day. I indulge in it perpetually and feasting on it transcends and soothes me. Its therapeutic.

Ok, folks now share yours and let me have a peek. Its open to everybody who finds this little rattle brained space of mine interesting.

In good spirits !

Yeah thats my current mood….In fact thats how I usually am, at least for a few days after I visit Shilparamam, crafts fairs, weaver’s exhibitons, fab India etc…..ok, you got the hunch….. Visiting and shopping at  these places is more than just shopping for me…it makes me content and delightful…. We visited Shilparamam yesterday and I came back home with a few lovely goodies…..and am starry-eyed ever since……:)
