I am engaged! Betrothed! Affianced! Spoken for! And it’s been 20 days already! It was a fairytale! A dream come true! (Ok I’m gonna stop with the exclamation marks now.) Everything was just perfect. The venue, the decorations, the food, the cake, our outfits, my bouquet. Just the way I had envisioned. We were in … More B’ring’ing in happiness!
I have been looking for a ring box for my engagement party. I had my heart set on this antique heart-shaped box that has been on my dressing table since forever. I don’t know who it belonged to, but I’m pretty sure it belonged to my grandmother or my great-grandmother even. I love old stuff … More Love, Luck and Ring boxes
When I had only just started blogging, and I had something like 30 followers, I came across Wes’s blog – Nearly Wes. I loved it so so much and right then I decided to put this on my bucket list – “To garner 125 followers on WordPress”, because that was the number Wes was on. … More Repeat after me – Wooohooo!
A common complaint all my colleagues have – How is it that the same make of coffee machine, and the same brand of coffee beans produce a different coffee at the clients’ offices? What is this conspiracy? Well, the coffee’s always tastier in somebody else’s workplace. PS: Luckily for me I just have milk 🙂 … More One-Liner Wednesday – Office Woes
A couple of weeks ago I spent a harrowing hour at the opthalmologist. Read about it here if you haven’t yet. Long story short, I suck at putting lenses in my eyes.

But first, here’s a quick update – Me and the fiance attended one of my closest friend’s wedding in Jaipur. A full blown Marwadi wedding with loads of good food! Would you believe it they … More An update of the week!
I have a nice pair of black cat-eye spectacles, which I use everyday, but of course they won’t do on the day of my engagement party. Neither can I go spectacle-less. I need to be able to tell people apart, you see! So I pulled myself together and visited the opthalmologist. Here’s what happened – … More Contact lenses from hell!
Let me introduce you Reader Dear, to one of my besties – HollyPixie. Her name is inspired by the Pottermore website! Some time ago we nicknamed each other, and chose our favourite Pottermore-based names. She chose HollyPixie and I forgot what I chose. Anyway here’s something sweet she once said to me. We were talking … More One-Liner Wednesday – Soulsisters!
I am a bride! If that’s not an excuse to splurge, I don’t know what is! (On a side-note, when does one become a bride? After getting engaged, after the engagement party, after the ‘Save the dates’ have been sent, a couple of weeks before the wedding? When??). Assuming that it’s after saying YES, I … More A bridal splurge
I had this soup at an Italian restaurant on Valentine’s day. You know the story of the soup. Here it is if you missed that post. So although the soup-selection was the first fiasco in a long list of fiascos (on Vday, no less), it was nevertheless delicious. Here’s the recipe – … More Roasted bell pepper and tomato soup
