Texan Grit

1:01 AM


Fall has arrived in Texas, and that too, on time this year. The morning temperatures have been between 55˚F - 65˚F all this week. I wish I could box this weather up and bring it out in the summers when the temperature reaches up to 100˚F. The mornings have been so pleasant lately, that I cannot help but dream of picnics and hikes and all kinds of outdoor activities.

Talking of pleasant ... I was pleasantly surprised this last Sunday morning, to find out that I had been featured in the Sunday edition of one of the leading Bombay (Mumbai) Daily - DNA. Oh well! ... though isn't anything earth shattering but it never gets old to be appreciated and complimented. Thank you, to the person who scouted me out and wrote such wonderful things about me. I, too, describe my style as - eclectic

P.S. Not to miss, out of all the perfect poses I give on the blog, they chose my bloopers.

In other news, I have been feeling the following lately:

  • lethargic
  • fat
  • prosaic
  • weary
  • bored
  • despondent
  • anxious
  • inept
... I think I need a good long holiday!  I really do! :)

    While the dress is undoubtedly lovely, I especially love the rejuvenating splash of bottle green via the scarf and which makes a great contrast with the boots:)

  14. Congrats! You look great on the bloopers too! I hope you can take a holiday and get rejuvenated. It is properly autumnal in the UK now after a freak heatwave last week. I like autumn but I always miss summer and dread the winter months in particular Jan and Feb.

  27. Congratulations for DNA.

    FAT :-/ That's exactly how I am feeling, but we both know, none of the two is fat. So shed that feeling, will you, please :D

    I loved the boots, I loved the green scarf.

    And I need to know what lip-color you wearing, I want to try that, though I have just two lines, hardly any lips :D

    And, have a nice fall, here the fall tends to be much colder >:<

  35. What a lovely feature. And I think they've used the best photos :) ... I really like your boots here. So used to seeing black and different browns on the streets that this is a welcome change.

    I hope you feel better soon Tanvi. Maybe taking a week long break from workouts might give you the extra kick of endorphins once you resume?

    Feel better, I'm sorry you're filling icky! Maybe make a nice soup to help your body transition into fall by protecting it more against sluggishness and colds? :)
