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.

Flower Power

Trust me when I say I sat in front of my computer so, so many times to write something but I just didn’t find the motivation. All I could ever think was I would be better off playing with my little one than sitting in front of the screen. These moments are so, so limited, so precious, so special that I simply don’t want to miss even a single second of her childhood. Time is just flying and I just want to be present for her – all the time, in every way I can. And being offline makes me happy, it keeps me sane.
So excuse me while I try to juggle my life while trying to live it.
Oh, what fun! 🙂
Here are some pictures we clicked yesterday early morning before breakfast and grocery shopping at the local farmers market. This blouse that I picked from the clearance section really fit the backdrop. Can you spot me in those bushes? 😛
