Tangerine in small doses


This had started to become a pattern -> I sit down to write a post but nothing comes to mind and then I decide, "I'll come back to it when its time to post!" and then again when its time to write, I have nothing to say. I finally figured out the root of this problem. I write my thoughts when I have no one to share them with in real life. Having Mom around means I get to be a 24/7 chatterbox saying anything and everything that comes to my mind, regardless of whether she wants to hear it or not [she is a parent, she has no choice!]. So I guess, since I am sharing my meaningful thoughts with her, all that's left for the blog is vanity [I kid! but its kinda true too].

P.S. Fellow InFB Members, if you think Tangerine is not a color for you, using it in make up and/or accessories is also a way to go for the upcoming InFB Remix. Just a thought!

Lust : Yellow & White


1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7

The shopping ban is about to come to an end in about 2 weeks (on 15th June to be exact) and the white blazer is probably the first 'lust' purchase I will be making. I have already ticked-off the beach destination from my summer holiday list for this year but that is not stopping me for dreaming for more ... this outfit would probably my the one I'd pick for an evening by the beach, with a yummy cocktail in my hand while the cool breeze caresses my tresses and not a care in the world. Ah! the good life! Oh and we all need a phone cover that matches outfit, don't we? ;)

Long Weekend Bliss


Something I have realized is that I do not require much to be happy. Good company, good weather, good food, a camera & lots of conversations -> I am a happy bunny ... And that's exactly what this weekend was is all about. Will share more soon but for now this is a quick post with some awesome shots my Mom took of Dr. Fab and me. It is so rare that we have someone to take our silly fun poses. Now that she is here, we are making most of this opportunity. 

P.S. Must add her name to my Photographer's list. She most definitely qualifies ;)

The look on my face below, hence the title!

I don't understand ...


... why some people
  • discuss their bowel movements in public?
  • give opinion on matters they know absolutely nothing about?
  • believe in bringing others down, instead of pulling themselves up?
  • let success get to their heads?
  • cannot reply a smile, with a smile!?
  • cannot behave with a little class and dignity?
  • are incapable of managing their personal finance?
  • resort to whining at ALL times?
  • continue to eat like a pig and then complain about their poor health?
  • don't treat others the way they wish to be treated? 

Previously, have worn this dress as a top, two months back

Reader's Spotlight (XIII) - Stacey




Hi Tanvi! 

This weekend, I thought I would snap these before heading out to meet a friend. I had to take them myself as hubby is away. I placed my camera on a stack of books and placed the stack strategically around the room in order to take the pics :-). I don't have a tripod. I thought of how much your outfits are always colourful and thought you might like this green capri/pants. I also paired them with the Steve Madden leopard wedges, which I know you like. Let me know what you think about this outfit.   

Stacey, you had me at the green pants! The color is delicious and pairing it with white was something I would not have thought of. I also like the finishing touches of the leopard print wedges. I didn't miss those white & brown chunky bangles on your left wrist either. Nicely done. P.S. I also love your home. It looks amazing. When am I invited? ;) Kidding.   

For those who are new here: This is a segment where my readers get to share their style or ask of suggestions (if they need any!) from all my readers. So if you have been inspired by my blog then Email me your outfit pictures for this feature. If anyone wishes to stay Anonymous just say the word. post this feature every alternate Friday

How to wear Black & White?


Something you can find in plenty on this blog is colors and print. However, lately there has been an over flow of black & white outfits. In fact I cannot control myself from creating more and more for the coming days #obsessivemuch Below are some of my go-to-tips on how to work an black and white ensemble:

Footwear

  • Match your footwear to the dominating color of the outfit - black or white
  • Match your footwear with your accessories
  • Go contrast. Wear any bright color on your feet
Accessories
  • When creating an office chic look, less is more. Work ONE accessory, well
  • Sunglasses count at accessory in my books
  • One of the oldest trick in the book is to match the color of your belt and shoes. More shocking the better! #helloneon
Sometimes ...

... just sometimes, simply letting your clothes talk is also a good thing. A pair of ear-studs, flat footwear and pulled back hair is all you need to make a statement, or not!

Chi-Town

Back from a short but fruitful trip to Chicago. Had a wonderful time with family and friends. Now back to the Texas-grind. Apparently I had taken the sunshine with me to Chi-town and it was rainy here in San Antonio all 3 days. Now I have brought back the sun. 

This is what I wore on the last day in Chicago

Friday Fitness: Lower Body Workout


Disclaimer: I am not an expert or have any formal education or training in this field. These posts are purely on personal experience and knowledge gained via several years of training and learning 'on-the-job'. If you are a novice please consult a professional before listening to me. 

After what seems like ages, I am inspired to do fitness posts again. 

My favorite body parts to workout are legs and glutes. Together they make up the largest and the most powerful muscle group in the body. Strength exercises help build muscular endurance and also improve cardio vascular performance. I am addicted to leg exercises and hence include them in almost every workout. You can only develop overall body strength if you have the strong foundation that leg exercises provide, trust me!


The video is an edited version and NOT a full workout!

Usually I do either:
  • 2 sets of 30 repetitions OR
  • 3 sets of 15 repetitions
It purely depends on how much time and energy I have on that particular day. 
For variations, I add dumbbells or leg weights.  

Update: Fitness will be a regular segment every alternate Friday, from now on. I will share my fitness/health related experiences, motivational posts, or workout tips. If there is any specific topic you would want me to cover, which I have not already mentioned in my previous posts, please feel free to Email me. I am open to suggestions.
