Am sure all of us have these specific online stores that we go to for specific items. Shoes from one brand, blazers that fit you great from another store. Frankly it sometimes annoys me to keep ten tabs open and check them all for new arrivals, items on sale, and I’m always wishing there was one store where I could find everything I needed – one store that has my back for all my activities ranging from coffee dates/meetings, work days followed by dinner, friend’s wedding to family functions and parties. And at the same time not compromise on quality or on my personal style. On my search for this utopian website, when I came across limeroad.com, it seemed to fulfill all these requirements, in theory at least. So I decided to test it out practically, and see if I could come up with an outfit, for all the occasions in my social calendar.
For my first look, I wanted something that would keep me put together the whole day, as I spent the morning working on my paintings, replying to blog emails, then running errands, and finally ending my evening at my favorite coffee shop. I wore a comfortable black printed kurta, paired with a pair of blue palazzos and cinched it at the waist with a chain belt. I always dress according to my mood and occasion. Since my dressing depends on my feelings and is very spontaneous, it can lead to all sorts of eclectic combinations. The bright blue palazzos only made me want to add a few more hues of blue to the outfit, and hence the blue earrings and sandals. All in all it was definitely the kind of laid back outfit I would have picked for an easy going day!
1) An episode of FRIENDS. Any episode will do!
2) Ice cream in a soft serve cone.
3) A new pair of shoes.
5) A long shower with an amazing smelling shampoo.
7) Courier guy coming with my online goodies, about which i’d totally forgotten!
8) A solid nine hours of sleep.
9) Fresh lilies (white lilies are my favorite flowers)
10) A new novel
11) The smell of a new book/old book/any book
12) Cash in hand
13) A full tank of gas when driving
14) Puppies on the road
15) A light drizzle (NOT heavy rain)
16) Thinking about the good old school days
17) A phone call or message from the past (a typical blast from the past)
18) A new haircut
19) A cup of heavenly coffee
20) Good skin day 😀
Well these are just a few that I could think off the top of my head. There are a LOT more(few that can’t be mentioned here ;))
What about you? What is it that never fails to cheer you up?
Todays turn of events:
I feel much much better today. Maybe bcoz i woke up late had breakfast and then again slept like a log. Its been days since i had such a deep sleep. Very refreshing.
The trap used to catch the rat ( read RatStory first in case you dont know ) has been moved from its place (by the rat?) . The trap is closed, the food has vanished, but there is no rat. I guess we are dealing with a super-rat here. Apart from vanishing from a closed cage, wonder what other powers its going to show.
I fell down today.. i was getting down the steps at dominos and at the last 3 steps… THUD!! Am down on my butt.. and i felt so bad.. not embarassed, even though a few people laughed, i really couldnt care less! but i fell down.. its frustrating coz i dint trip.. no one pushed me.. my heel dint break.. i just fell.. no idea how that happened..
And.. am happy today.. today is an overall happy day 🙂 ( NOT bcoz i fell)
My dear friend Anusha broke all her previous records this time.. she messaged.. she called.. she answered calls.. and we met up!!! Just kidding anu… am really glad we met up after so long. Times have changed, we all have changed.. and everybody has gone their separate ways.. its only an occasional mail or msg thats keeping us in touch with our friends. Thanks to all the social networking sites you are a part of everybody’s virtual life.. but its just not the same as meeting someone face-to-face. So yesterday was really refreshing.. It reminded me of the days when we would sit and talk and talk for hours with no worry at all.. no thought of work pressures.. nothing. Girls if you both are reading this…. we should do this more often!
Quick post for now… My cold has worsened, and i have a fever. My head feels like a lead ball. So ill take my sleep deprived-puffy eyed-tired face and dig into some of the yummy chocolates that anu has bought 🙂
Ahhh… Nothing like chocolate therapy !
p.s- Anu you made it to BOTH our blogs! Thanks for following 😛
Excuse me people but today i just want to rant! Yes, i know i do that everyday but today is somewhat different. You’ll know as you read.
First, i feel sick. I just want to lie on my bed and sleep the whole day.
Second, i feel like breaking something into pieces. Crush it with my hands till it vanishes.
Third, i feel like yelling at the top of my voice but unfortunately i have zero energy to do that. Am exhausted even though i have done nothing. So it would be very nice if one of you could just yell for me. Thats right. Go to the person nearest to you and yell his brains out. For me.
Fourth, am shivering with cold. No, i dont have a fever. Yes, i can see its burning hot outside. But i feel cold cold cold.
Fifth, i have a block. A mental block. Am not able to think of anything. My mind is blank. You would think i’d be relieved to not think for one day? This is worse than my continuous thinking. I’d prefer “thinking” to “this” anyday. Trust me.
Sixth, I have some huge news to share.
Seventh, Ok i lied. There is no news. No news is good news right?
And now.. i have officially lost it!
Until i “find it” again……………………..
I can see my sense of humour has gone for a toss.. so before i get hit with rotten tomatoes.. i take your leave!
Its a great feeling when people tell you that you have inspired them to start a blog (Amuktha), or that the first thing they do in the morning after reaching office is to read your blog (Teja), to get that smile on their face, a fresh and happy start to their day. I know many people read my blog, so a BIG thanks to the few special ones who do leave comments and follow it 🙂 and also to all those who read my blog and love it.. it makes my day when you say it… and makes me want to write more 🙂
p.s- i knew my lazy self would not maintain the promise.. aaggghhh.. fine i agree.. Last Warning!
A-post-a-day it’ll be from now on!
p.p.s – settling down with a hot cup of coffee now!
Its been raining for almost 5 months now!!! I guess no one can actually believe it.. Just upto last year we were lucky if it rained for a whole week.. talk about 5 months!!! Aaahhh.. I remember those days, when it took me 4 hours to get home from office.. Frustrating for the driver- yes, as for me, i would sit in the back seat watching the raindrops form patters on the window and shimmer like stars under the streetlights.. sounds romantic na? Well not always.. There were days when i would be hungry as hell, tired, cramped legs and would have done anything to get out of that inching traffic..! But most of the days were good.. I discovered so many tiny shops and places which i would have otherwise missed ( if i was zooming past ). So all in all – good days! Although i must say my driver disagrees.. He is so happy that i left my job.. and that too, at the right time, is what he said. Being at home is no fun at all on a rainy day.. and when its combined with studying – it downright sucks!!! Aahh well, only a few more days.. and then freedom!!! I can go back to getting stuck in traffic, and water getting splashed all over me while waking on the road, going for long walks in my colony in the rain…. and who can forget?? hot cups of coffee 🙂
Of course all this only if the rains decide to drench us for a few more days… and looking at the trend so far.. i think they are here to stay.. dont you?? 🙂
What all DONT i do to make it look smart, witty, short and at the same time describe me and my blog.. all in one single phrase.. phew! The number of days and nights i spent to come with a half decent blog address.. its so frustrating to see that every address you come up with is taken by someone who has opened a blog 5 yrs ago with a single post and a single sentence. I let it be in the beginning.. for a while.. waiting for something unusual to pop up in my mind.. something catchy.. something.. ANYTHING! i googled.. extensively.. i stringed together the most unlikely and random words hoping it’ll transform into something hilarious and smart.. All i got was pages and pages filled with incorrigible phrases.. every witty title i come up with has been taken.. this was enough proof that i was totally overestimating me and my brain.. finally.. i stuck with this.. Coz that was what i had in my hand and mind at that time.. and luckily this title was available ( i wonder why ).. so here it is.. A toast to my heavenly coffee and my momentary madness.. U helped me out!
