Summer Flowers

If you thought I ran away somewhere, then you are right. I kind of went in to hiding. Actually I haven’t been in the right head space lately. My daughter started day care last week and I am having some very mixed feelings about it. You see she has been at home with me since she was born and now to think that someone else is taking care of her just makes me anxious. On the other hand, I have so much time to myself now since my whole day used to revolve around her. She is fierce, strong and a very active toddler. Sometimes it gets too much. Don’t get me wrong, I love her to pieces. But every mom needs some space too and I am enjoying these quiet hours way more than I imagined. Does that make me a bad mom? Am I being selfish? Is it wrong to feel relieved? Or am I thinking too much? These thoughts just never leave me..
So yes, these conversations that I keep having in my head are the reason why I am not myself lately. And on grey days we wear yellow. Yellow brightens up my mood. I hope you are having a good day!

Dress is from Loft Outlet and shoes are Vince Camuto (a score from TJ Maxx).

Mehendi Dress

From a blogger point of view, none of the pictures from this shoot turned out well. None. Not one at all. Honestly, this never happens. If we click twenty, atleast five do come out decent. But some days the camera really doesn’t co-operate and apparently, it was one of those days. But when I uploaded the pictures on the computer, I kind of really liked them. I liked how raw they looked – absolutely real. This is me, most of the time – twirling, smiling, always fixing her hair – perfectly imperfect.
Wore this to a lunch and shopping date with my girlfriend and had a blast. When you are happy it shows on your face. It was super windy that evening and it also rained later. Perfect end to a perfect day.
This green shade is what we call ‘Mehendi green’ in Hindi. Mehendi means henna. And whenever I look at this color, it reminds me of beautiful Indian weddings when brides and grooms apply mehendi on their hands. So shall we call this dress the ‘mehendi dress’? Ya, let’s.
The dress is from JCPenney, sandals from Target and earrings are Old Navy.

Play Day

For the first time ever, I took my little bee to an indoor playground. My God, are they loud or what! Kids screaming everywhere and running from one corner of the room to another like little maniacs. Of course it’s their idea of fun, who are we to judge. My poor little girl who is super friendly was so overwhelmed by all that screaming and running that she kept looking at me with puppy eyes. It was like she was asking ‘what is wrong with these children, mom?’ But at the end of the day, she did enjoy and that is what matters. And by the time we got home, she was dog-tired. Completely washed out! Mission Accomplished.
This is what I wore that afternoon. Sorry folks who are still living in cold. Here in Florida, the sun always shines. 😉

Resurgence

Where to begin with…. Well, hi! I’m still alive and kicking even though the blog wasn’t that much active. This break was purely unintentional. Initially, it was procrastination which turned in to laziness, and as the days kept passing by I almost stopped thinking about the blog. So all the blame goes to moi. If there is one thing that I am quite active on, it’s Instagram. Yes, I still take pictures and put up a few snippets on there, if you care to follow.
Oh well, these past few months have been kind of awesome. Our baby girl turned one in December. We also traveled to India which was one hell of a vacation. Life is good, God is kind. And I promise I am going to start posting regularly, it feels like my mojo is back. 😉
Shot under the evening sun, wearing this beautiful 3 piece suit, these pictures have come out really nice. I bought the fabric in India and got it stitched there. Isn’t the print spectacular? Shoes are from Clarks.
Wish you a lovely week ahead.
