Happy things and Happy thoughts

 Spring is here!
 Makeshift jewellery boxes
 Roadside buy, silver bangles. A set of these uplifts an outfit amazingly.
 Looking for products and inspiration at my favourite home store The purple pony
Lounging around the house without makeup and a floral headgear. You'll be amazed at what a fun mood uplifter this is :)

Saturday night strive

Sometimes there are days when you have to go out on a Saturday night and you stand in-front of your wardrobe, see 50 pairs of outfits and realise you have nothing to wear. Happens to me more often than not. 
Just as you are reaching for your dress you realise yikes you had to make an appointment at your neighbourhood salon for your monthly 'ahem' 'beauty rituals' (I'm sure you girls know what I'm talking about & hopefully no boys are reading this ;)
Well then the easiest and most fool proof way to deal with this is throw on a pair of your favourite jeans, a simple white or black top (you can never go wrong with those), put on a nice bright lipstick, stack on some nice gold jewellery and go funky with your heels :)

When Jamie saved the day

I am not a very good cook, I wish I was. Unlike my husband who is a big foodie and an amazing cook (don't tell him I said that ;)
A few days back our cook called to say she isn't coming and in true Indian style I almost went into a meltdown. Just as I was about to reach for our trusted Zomato app a little voice in my head (which mind you, I like to keep hidden somewhere and generally not listen to) gave me a huge lecture on how I am almost 29 years old and can't make a decent meal (mom is that you??????)
And that kids, is how Jamie came to the rescue.

I am a sucker for loose, comfortable clothes with a slightly bohemian vibe. 
Kurtas over loose pants, oversized shirts (prefrably my husbands) worn over jeans or just a nice flowey dress, I'm all for it.
When I first laid eyes on this shirt dress, it was love at first sight. The happy yellow, chanderi cotton and looseness all seemed like the prefect match.

Its a different story that once I wore it over my loose torn boyfriend jeans my husband just stared at me with those 'what-exactly-is-it-that-you-are-wearing-look'. But he's too much of a sweetheart to come right out and say it. Instead when I twirled around him asking how I look he said 'Great, as always' :)
So I spent a happy Sunday afternoon on our recent visit to Delhi, during a food fest, braving the soon to be sourcingly hot days in my yellow shirt and felt like a sunflower :D

Home Musings

This last week Karan and I made a short but really sweet trip back to our home in Delhi.
Truth be told, its only after moving to another city post marriage have I realised what a big change marriage can be how how important it is to maintain relationships.
Being in Delhi only for a few days, we had to figure out how to spend quality time with my family, Karan's side of the family and my friends.
Thankfully we manage to pull it off successfully (well almost)
Once I was back home, I got thinking on how nice it is to be surrounded by so many people you love and how easy it is to loose touch.
Here's some advice I read about that I keep on reminding myself of.

Banana Nutella Heaven

Hi, my name is Nikita and I am a Chocoholic. There I said it! 
I've tried to reduce, resist and all together avoid my coco consumption. So far reduce has worked. I have managed to cut down my chocolate habit by ALOT.
For emergencies however (read: craving like nothing else matters) I have my easiest, favourite and yummiest recipe, The Banana Nutella Toastie.
This take literally 7 minutes by the clock and tastes like a small piece of heaven.
