July 2011 in Review

Gear up, people! Unlike my previous post, I have A LOT to say today... [Also, I apologize in advance for a lot of 'here's i.e. embedded links, but this IS a review/recap post, so that kindda comes with the territory, no?! :)]

So now we have completed TWO FREAKING MONTHS without SUGAR & SHOPPING! With an exception of a certain yellow pants! And that is bloody awesome in my books. 

First of all, I am happy that you all like the new banner, which by the way, already seems old to me in one month. I know ... I know ... Aarti did the sketch, but hey! typing takes a little effort too ;)

Oh! and by the way I cannot believe how many of us are (were!) 
mature for our age! No wonder the wisdom flows in abundance between all the blogs I follow and clearly birds of same feather flock together! 

I am glad I could provide some amusement with my positivity here. Oh! I have one more to add to the list:

Upside of people plagiarizing/copying youYou are always driven to stay ahead in your game and 'they' shall forever remain your followers (even if they do not acknowledge it!)

Since I am not shopping I looked for inspiration to dress on practically daily basis, like here, here, here, and here.

You got to know a little more about me and my friends here, about the my current song obsession here, and about how I avoid drama in my life here. Oh! And I also did my SECOND vlog *very nervously* this month. Thank you for all the positive feedback. I am just not too comfortable in front of the camera talking, but we shall get over that soon too! Now won't we? ;)

In between I did disable comments several times (here, here, herehere
and here), 'coz sometimes it is just nice to blog without the anticipation of the reaction and comments. Specially on the days when I am busy I like it, like that. But I realized that when people have some to say they always find a way (email/facebook/twitter).

Last but not the least, THANK YOU, again for your kind words and best wishes
. It meant a lot to me and I really appreciate it. 

This was a really jam-packed month on this blog. Right? Wayyy too many things happening!

If you have had enough of my talking for the day then just let me know which outfit you liked the most and I will get out of your hair! Happy Sunday!

  15. I don't want July to be over--I want to wear fall fashion and all, but man I am going to miss the summer months when it starts getting dark at 3pm!

    It was so hard to pick a favorite outfit btw, you had a rockin' stylish month, girl! xx

  16. I love most of them Tanvi, so hard to pick a favorite:):) If I have to, then it will be #10:):)

  17. It was hard deciding which one to vote for as they're all great outfits. Outfit #12 stole it by a whisker.

  18. Great job!!! Pass the torch to me cause I need to go 2 months without shopping and I sure will try. Thanlks for your words of wisdom... always!

  30. Wow good job on the no sugar and shopping for 2 months!! I don't know how you did it, but I don't think I would've been able to go with either one!!


  31. 2 months without sugar?!! *inspired* .
    I should try going without sugar one of these days.. shopping I can easily do without for as long as a year! (considering I dont like to shop!!).
    I loved all the outfits you have posted, but will try and chose one in the poll :)

  32. Wish I could vote more than once!! :(

  33. 2,6,7,8 are my favourites-hard to pick out one na...although I soooo edged towards picking up 8:-)

    and my god August must be so anxious by now-the way you've been waiting for him:-)

  34. So many outfits, so little time! I noticed that many bloggers do disable their comments. Quite interesting...but I guess if you are busy then that's a good reason I suppose. but what if I love you and need to leave a comment ;) xo -Taj

  35. I second that...though I feel like this year is flying!!! Loved your posts..I feel ya on the comments..I have had no time to visit anyone and sometimes it is easier without the guilt!! haha Loved your posts this month!

  36. I voted for number 11....I just love the color block of your top!!!



  37. I would kick your super sweet ass for closing the comments on the recent posts!:Dlol
    Even if I adore candy colors Zara look, I voted here for 13-lucky and utterly chic number!:D

  38. 5 ! my absolute favourite this month. Something I would shamelessly copy :p

    and HAPPY AUGUST hotstuff! xoxoxo

  39. Two months without sugar and shopping...what? Wow. I don't think I could do that! Hats off to you!

  40. The most I liked - 3rd and 8th.. :)
