ABOUT ME & MY LIFE+STYLE
Thank you so much for visiting my site! My name is Tanvi Rastogi and I’m a 33 years-old. I live in Maryland (Washington DC Area) with my husband. I recently moved from Texas, after living there for seven years. I am a wanderer. I grew up in New Delhi, India and then moved out to Dubai, U.A.E. during my high-school years. I lived and worked in London, U.K. after graduating from LES Roches, Switzerland. I feel I belong to each of those cities. Now I even think I am a Texan at heart. Currently I’m working on my blog full-time!
I launched Tanvii.com (previously known as The Fabulous Life of Not-So-Rich & Infamous) in January 2009 as a diary of my new martial adventure along with my fitness journey. In 2010 the blog transitioned into an everyday style diary with snippets of life thrown in. People always sugar coat their advice and experiences. I say them as it is, or at least how I felt them! Unadulterated. Today the blog has become an online resource for women around the globe for easy style inspiration, exchanging life anecdotes and encouragement to just be who they want to be!
I am moody, frank, eccentric, detached, methodical, individualistic, erratic, analytical, creative, fair, passionate, ambitious, intense, understanding, verbal, sensitive, naive, impatient, inquisitive, open and logical. // I am honest as long as it doesn't really hurt anyone including me. // I have a poor EQ which is compensated by not so poor IQ. // My hobbies are writing, reading, traveling, shopping, thinking and music. // Three things that can grab my complete attention at any time are good food, clothes and hot guys (not necessarily in that order). // The best thing I have ever done is taken risks. // The most important things in my life are being fair, being loved, self-respect, a good career, family and friends. // My biggest enemy and friend is my hyperactive brain which thinks a lot. // I am reasonably good at creative debating, writing, presenting and working. // I have a bit of ego. // I don't read like I used to. // My weaknesses are chocolates, Indian romantic movies, spicy food, success, power, love to mention a few... // I love traveling. (Like ... LURVEEE) // My biggest fear is having a monotonous life. // My worst nightmare is waking and finding myself on an island all alone. // My biggest tragedy is not being understood. // I think my “Theory of Irony of Life” is true. // I want to be able to fly and I feel free. // I want more friends who really love me. // I think a lot. // When I am in upswing, it shows as focused intelligent work and philosophical pondering. In downswing it becomes destructive attitudes, sullen moods and laziness. // I can write poems only when I am sad, touched or obsessed. // I accept myself and people as they are as long it doesn't disturb my peace of mind. // I think purpose of every activity is happiness. // I feel money is by luck but knowledge is by hard work. Hard work without a clear aim is stupidity. // I believe in love. // God is mankind's imaginary friend. // I think true love is only for lucky. // I think in the end, nothing really matters ... except how one feels.
