"Take 10" with Sonali1:01 AM
This is my second interview in the series of "Take 10". Here I ask 10 random questions from one of the fellow bloggers and hope that they shall oblige!
Today I have decided to pick the brains of Sonali fromBollywood Style Diaries who has a flourishing 'celebrity' style blog where we all hang out and indulge in a little harm-less-criticism on our beloved Indian Celebrities. Over past couple of months I have come to know Sonali very closely, as often our discussions [and/or disagreements!] move from the 'public' comment section to our 'inbox' where we go to-and-fro on all topics - Fashion-to-Philosophy (introspection)! She is one of the wittiest bloggers I know with an honest opinion and a warm heart. And I adore her to death! *put your hand together for Sonali!*
Tanvi - Describe yourself in one word.
Sonali - PASSIONATE
Tanvi- What is that 'one' rule that can never be broken in your household?
Sonali - I start my weekdays with a glass of hot milk. what can I say? I need the calcium:-) So there might not be anything to eat in the house, but you will always find milk in the fridge!!
Tanvi - Out of the three characters from the sitcom "F.R.I.E.N.D.S." with whom do you relate the most?
Sonali - A little bit of this and that ... and not just the three characters ... On Mondays, I am usually spaced out like Phoebe. I surface around noon when I realize that I am sitting in someone's office and my co-worker is starting to hyper ventilate! By Tuesday, I realize there is no way out but to do my job. I go all nerdy and geeky like Ross and code away... Who isn't a Joey on Friday? Thinking about all the nice restaurants to eat over the weekend and saying "how u doing" to everyone in the hallway. My co-workers generally avoid me on this day.
Tanvi - If your life was to be made into a Movie, what title would choose? And which actress would you pick, to immortalize you?
Sonali - Title - "Born to shop, Forced to work" and preferably played by Preity Zinta or Kajol:-)
Tanvi - What's your pick - Street Fashion or High End Fashion? And Why?
Sonali - My personality style is High end fashion but my budget is Street fashion!! My High End fashion buys are usually handbags and "oh my god I love it I must have it NOW " items. For daily wear and trendy stuff, I go with Street fashion buys.
Tanvi - What is your idea of a "fun" girl's day out?
Sonali - "A complete waste of time" :-)
Tanvi - What do you 'dislike' most about blogging?
Sonali - It eats into my sleep-time.
Tanvi - Who is the best dressed celebrity in your books? And why?
Sonali - Soniya Mehra and Sonam Kapoor. Both of them tend to experiment a lot with their clothes, hair and makeup.

I try to live my life to the fullest guided by these core principles.
1) Our character is what we do when we think no one is looking.
2) No amount of success outside can compensate for failure at home.
3) Don't do things out of fear - fear of bad karma, fear of "what goes around, comes around", fear of traditions. Do whats right by you.
Fashion is fun and all about experimenting with colors, prints, silhouettes and proportions... If I like what I see in the mirror, I will run with it - just no cleavage, minis or micros, sneakers or flats. Fashion is important to me but it is not end-all and be-all.
I enjoy interacting with Sonali immensely, I hope you all enjoyed it too!
Thank You, Sonali for your time (and humor!)
Have a good weekend, everyone!
