Sometimes I really wish I could be Bob Marley and not give a F*** about anything.

 

But then I was born a girl and that ruined it for me.

I do love the peace and quiet that lets me hear the songs nature sings to us every day. Can anyone tell me how do we bring back the sparrows into the city? My dad always says while growing up my best friends were ants (because I always played with them instead of doing my homework ā¤ ), God knows I will be punished on judgement day for troubling them! And for persistently chasing cats too šŸ˜‰ God created all kinds of creatures big and small, He also made humans the godā€™s of the earth, yet we are so willfully destroying it! ā¤ Yup you might have guessed it right! Iā€™m a big sucker for the organics grown naturally from the earth. I love the softness of cotton and the flavors of organically grown foods. It is a rare occasion on which I have fallen in love with an outfit without checking itā€™s fabric composition.

I love to ā¤ with all my heart, and find ā€˜hateā€™ a non-existent emotional state!!! Who am I kidding I do have a list of people I want dead, but I donā€™t find it worth the wasted effort to destroy them and make the world an unhappy place to live in! I know I wish i were a hippieĀ but hippieā€™s reject evolution,and I am a sucker for technology too!

XOXO

Nita

I wasn’t really Indian. Being a Christian in India was like being the unwanted child left behind by our forefathers who were unwanted settlers. Of course, a lot of things of the past have lost their importance over the years. Also being named Nita made it difficult for the average Indian to even believe I was Christian. I used to hate wearing Indian wear, primarily because during every national event and holiday I never had a proper outfit to wear to school. Until of course I discovered the saree, something I adapted pretty quickly too. But kurta’sĀ was a “never want to wear” feeling.

However, those feelings fade growing up. It doesn’t really matter because I was never expected to wear Indian ethnic to any of the major events. What really happened was, I discovered a new love for Indian wear when I worked for Fabindia for two years. The best challenge at the job was the ability to mix and match the availableĀ products to create a full outfit. Kurtha, pajama, and dupatta too with the value adding accessories. I find summer the best time to pick out my kurtas to wear, also the best season to wear the vibrant Indian` colours.

I was hoping to create an all Fabindia products in the ensemble, but I guess I haven’t worked there long enough to acquire those many products. My Verdict: Kurta’s are a favourite outfit for the summers. Also, the beauty of a kurta can be magnified or destroyed by the way the dupatta is draped. Show her some love and be fully aware that she will make or break the outfit you choose to wear.

Distance makes the heart grow fonder, so when your almost American brother is visiting India invites the whole world home, it becomes the awesome excuse for us to host a cousin’s meet up. All the more awesomely perfect is when the cousins agree to meet up for breakfast! On a Sunday! But as a typical Indian agreement of sorts, both parties do not keep their end of the bargain, my brother called them all too early and my cousins turn up too late for breakfast.

so what’s the best option for an outfit when you are the host, technically my mom is but I am her personal assistant šŸ˜‰ at home, you need something light, won’t hinder ur movement while attending, Ā and still look like I’m at home and comfortable. what a perfect excuse to wear my yellow dress. The cotton makes it light and breezy, The small red flowers makes it pretty and pleasant, and the yellow makes it a bright and happy.

I’ve learnt it the tough way. when you are at home where out of work or because you work at home, it is very important to be dressed up. It’s easier to stay in you PJ’s. It also typically translatesĀ to the not hassle morning of what to wear. Also, it would mean lesser laundry, lesserĀ reasonsĀ to get out of bed, no reason to not stay blanket covered on the couch, and A million reasons to stay lazy. The simple task that we would love to avoid because PJs are so much more comfortable,Ā it is the worst thing you can do to yourself.

I know Its a tedious process to get up pick out clothes to wear especially if you know however the possibility of getting out of the house is one out of a 100. So let’s not take so much trouble lets simplify the choices. Two piece outfitĀ means You spend that extra two minutesĀ pairing your clothes. So let’s pick out a one piece outfit. It took me a while to realize why my wardrobe was getting filled with dresses.

Also, typically in Bangalore,Ā it can get strangely cold at times. But that’sĀ nothing to worry about. simple rescues are a hot cup of green tea or coffee and the basic bright cover-ups šŸ˜‰ Most of all don’t forget to wear a basic eyeliner and lip colour/gloss. Oh hey! also always wear the watch. I wear the G watch to keep track of the updates that come to my phone, So I never miss an important updated.
