Brownies & Mango

If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things. 
- Albert Einstein

Let this quote be the reminisce from my last post. It got quite intense and heated, right? I am glad you all saw my point of view and those who didn't no worries, that's why we have so many opinions, so what everyone can take one [kidding!]. I think some people thought it was in context to something from my life while they were just a random stream of thoughts after reading a story on another blog. Anyhoo, moving on...   

The challenge has been done with for almost a week now but I still haven't given into shopping. I wouldn't lie I have been tempted but I have resisted it so far 'coz I really do not need anything and I want to first exhaust wearing everything I have got for this season at least once and then we can talk about shopping again. In the meantime I have been shopping for my husband [Birthday Month!] and family, 

... and this is how I had dressed for that
 Jacket - Michael Kors [08']
 Dress - Mango [10']
Booties - No Brand Name [From Dubai 09']

Brownies, anyone? 

1/2 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour an 8 inch square pan.
2. In a large saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter. Remove from heat, and stir in sugar, eggs, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat in 1/3 cup cocoa, 1/2 cup flour, salt, and baking powder. Spread batter into prepared pan.
3. Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Do not overcook.

  12. Hi Tanvi, I wonder if you know that you've been featured in this article:

    I thought I'd let you know if you aren't already been aware of it :)

    Love your blog! And the different ways by which you pulled off that Mango dress!

  13. I am so jealous you can dress like that. I can't remember when I saw my own thighs, it is so damn cold here.

    Brownies, yum!!!

  14. I just checked out the article mentioned by Oona...

    “I have seen ordinary people get numerous hits on their blogs and a fan following, because they have taken the initiative to put their personalities and lives out there through fashion,” says Latha Sunadh, former editor of

    This statement in my opinion reflects the niche space some of the bloggers like you have created for them selves.... Its amazing to know such a world also exists parallel to the real world, or should I say that the blog world is an extension of everyone's real selves... Hmn Hmn Hmn

    Anyways... Loved the colour of your jacket... green is my current favourite these days...

  15. Love the dress. The thin red stripe on the bottom is adorable. And the shoes are chic, too. At first I thought you were wearing leg-warmers.

  16. I am so going to try that recipe when I get home in a few days, those sound good- I've never made brownies from scratch before- I usually use a box... and you look lovely as usual, I love the green jacket.

  17. Those brownies look soo good! I love your outfits, you never fail me and I like to hear what ever it is you have to say because it's from the heart, never mean. Have a great day.!

  18. am dying to make brownies..but!!!!

    how stupid of me....!!!!

  19. Very refreshing colors.
    Liked the jacket style.

  22. Love your booties. My fav is still the one with the fitted black jacket with a touch of pink.

  23. Love your blog,absolutely dig your sep'10 look, and the Brownies look divine :)

  24. So in love with that dress. You've been wearing it so well and differently. I am not at all creative with my dresses!
