Hope you like them :)

This is the first time I'm doing such thing. It feels an honor to recognize talents!!
oki.. enough of the Melodrama!!!

Hi Sweeetieessss..

I'm back with the 'Much Awaited' Post- Awards Awards Awards.. Because you have been so kind and generous with your words, you've been a source of my inspiration! Like really!!! I Love Love Love you guys.. So as a token of my appreciation.. and to spread Love and Happiness. :) I'm presenting these awards to you..

Both the Awards have been chosen by me on the following basis:

The First Award- My Favourite Blogger Award ~ Will get a weekly mention of their blog on my facebook page.
  • Person having a genuine and honest opinion about whatever her blog is about!
  • Who is a consistent visitor of my blog, reads, comments(on my blog) and makes me happy! :D
That's it!!

The Second Award- My Favourite Facebook Fan Award ~ Will get a free goodie, the next time I hold a giveaway!
  • A person who has been a consistent visitor of my Facebook page, reads, likes, comments(on my page) and makes me happy! :D
That is it.. Everything is fair in Love, war and Fashion ;)

So...................

My Favourite Blogger Award goes toooooo :




Actually I have two in mind~


Congratulations :) Love you <3

To accept this award.. You have to follow these simple rules!

  • Save this picture and upload in the post when you receive the award.
  • Call out the name of the person who has given this award to you~ By linking back to their blog!
  • Write 5 things that sets you apart!
  • Choose at the max TWO people (having a blog of course), who is your favourite blogger
  • Obviously, you cannot choose the person who has chosen you!
  • Write 5 'sweet things' about your favourite blogger's blog or them.
  • Let them know when you have done it.
  • Put this picture as a memory, on your sidebar :)

So, here I go :)

Five things that set me Apart:

1. I find happiness in small little things in life!
2. I prefer receiving/giving hand-made gifts over bought ones!
3. This is like a little off the 'list' but I have to tell you guys- IT IS MY DREAM to go to NEW YORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The number of exclamation marks would explain my desperation!
4. I don't follow ANY TREND or what is 'IN' and what is 'OUT'.. I dress according to my mood and when my parents give me money to shop! ;) haha
5. I have a penchant for Spicy food!! Can never stop eating.. I overeat Spicy food!!!!!!!

Five sweet things about Surabhi-->

1. She is the Sweetest Blogger I've ever known! I can even bet, there is no one sweeter in the Blogging world! :D
2. When I read her posts, they are like so genuine and cute.. You get a soothing feeling while reading them :)
3. When I scold her (not literally ofcourse) for not visiting my blog often, she apologizes like she has hurt me and clarifies what she was upto.. hahah.. cuteee
4. She is new to the Blogging world but it's like she is my Best-Blogging-buddy cum good friend in making :)
5. She makes me happy with sweeeeeeet and happy comments  :D .. the best one was " It's like marrying your blog- Loving it" :)

Five sweet things about Sam-->

1. I love her unconditionally!! She is my first Blogger friend and we have like grown together :)
2. She is so damn good at writing!!!!! Just Read ANY post of her's!!
3. Whenever she visits my blog, she asks about my whereabouts and all the good things which I find sweet :)
4. She lives in South Africa but that doesn't stop her and her mom to know about India. Her mom sees the 'top notch' soaps of Indian Television, she knows about Indian Movies, likes Dino Morea, loves Italian food but can't cook.. but can definitely cook Velvet cupcakes, cookies etc.
5. She is a humble person with a nice heart and it is always great to hear from her :)

The Facebook Award would be published on Facebook only! :)

The Next Post would be up on 24th after which I'll be taking a short break due to exams :)
But keep coming as it's regarding Valentine's Day and a something new I've done in terms of Blogging :)

Until then
Keep Smiling :)

The Big Fat Indian Wedding!- Part II

Happy Sunday Friends :)
How is the weekend treating you? Mine is going good but have to study so sorry for lack of good posts! One of my gorgeous followers suggested that I continue with my happy-life-love and all the candid posts :D like the one here and here...
So shall I make it a point to publish a happy-happy post once a week?? Which day would you suggest? :)


Now, I'd like to thank Linda from The Style Moodboard from for holding such a fabulous giveaway- I won an Ellen Tracy Tee!! Yippee and just received the package. It is beautiful :)

Moving on, this is the 2nd part of the Big Fat Indian Wedding I attended.. If you haven't seen the first, then you can see it here :)

These pictures were taken on the day of a function called 'Gharoli'. It is a tradition where the 'Bhabhi', Wife of the Groom's Brother, goes to a gurudwara/mandir/temple and fetches holy water and keeps it in a pot placed on her head! Well of course, the weight is there that's why we gave her a small pot :D The groom later on has to first bathe with this water.
 Hope you like the pictures <3



 Here you will see me dancing.. We danced all the way to temple and back home!! It was so much fun!! :D


Here you can see my younger brother! :)

Wearing:
Suit- Meena Bazaar
Golden Big Cuff: Fashion and You
Bracelet/Bangles: BG's
Headband: Stolen
Mobile Case: Stilettos


Next up, this is merely a better version of the First part.. The earlier pictures were being taken by my mobile.. These are the Photographer's pick.

 




Here, I'm feeding a Horse with some Dal/Pulses. This is one of the many traditions where the sister of the Groom does the same in order to set the horse for a long-day journey!-That's what I think :P




Wearing:
Electric Blue Lehenga, Bangles, Danglers and Stilettos : Lajpat Nagar

Do you like the pictures?? :)

If you are a member on Facebook then you'd know that I'll be holding a contest in March. Also, I'll be giving 2 awards, one on Facebook and other here in my blog. So to know more about that and to participate, please like my Facebook page. And I'd love if you follow me via Bloglovin too. Make me happy :)

And don't forget to check out  My First Blog Sale!! A member is interested in buying the jeans for a lesser price. If anyone buys it at a higher price before the End of February, then it can be yours :)

Until then
Check out for the next post! It would be the first of it's kind :)

Valentine's Day~ Nails DIY

Hey Gorgeous friends!
I'm back as promised, with new set of nail art! And not 'just another' Nail Art but Valentine's Day Nail-Do!!!!

Todayy is the Big Day!!!! Let's take us time out of our busy lives and say- Yipppeeeee :D

So let us start this heart-filled nail design :)

1 <3- First start with a base coat to protect your beautiful nails :)

2<3- Next, paint your nails diagonally, a baby pink! You can use a clear tape if your hand is not steady! I used hand..



3<3- The tricky part! Very carefully make two thick slant lines which 'look' like a heart.. You can fill the notch if the heart doesn't look neat!



4<3- Now, use a toothpick to create horizontal and vertical lines. Tip- Tilt your fingers opposite the motion of the toothpick.. You can choose any colors..


5<3- This part is totally your call!!! Either you can finish with the top coat to get a beautiful shine OR you can cover the nails with sparkle nail polish! :)

Ta Daaa.. Done!!

Here is how it will look <3

















To be honest.. I didn't quite like the designs.. :( I'm a lil bit disappointed..  But I like the colors <3 Did you like it?

And tell me now. Do you have any plans for todayy?? Are you doing anything different this V-Day?

I am! And I will show you what, in the coming posts :D

Till then Enjoyy the New vouchers from Romwe.. Oh Did I tell you My New pair of tights and Danglers just arrived~!!!!!!!! Yippeeee I gooooo.. They are lovely.. Maybe I will wear them today :)

The Big Fat Indian Wedding!- Part I

Ting-a-ling-ling.... Ting-ling-ling-... Nachdi Firuuu Nachdi Firu

I'm a gone case!! :P
For all those who don't understand hindi/punjabi/random lyrical sounds in hindi.. Not to worry.. I don't want many people saying what I called myself, above ;)
So.. As many of you might I've known about a wedding that I attended recently!! yes.. I Attended it.. N it was not my wedding :P Long time babyyyyyyyyyy ;)

Anyways.. so it was my First Cousin's wedding with a girl who is also in our family! een een.. She is a distant relative.. don't call them Sis-Bro!! Yes this is the beauty of Punjabi weddings... <3
Talking about Punjabi; I had lots of fun as it was the FIRST wedding that I attended from Morning To the next morning.. I will tell you why it was a 24 hour affair :) Meanwhile enjoy the pictures and my chattering in between!!!

I had put this in My Facebook page too :D

This is what I wore at the wedding!! The color- Electric blue gave me such good vibes.. woahh.. n fetched me compliments too ;)


Did this Nail-Art in hurry.. Had no time.. But still it came out good, right?? N oh yeahh.. You are seeing Heena on my Hand again!! I love Mehendi.. I'll tell you how to pronounce it.. 
Me- as in 'Met'
Hen- 'hen' the bird
di- 'December'
 Got it??? Now say it aloud.. U have learnt one colorful word.. :) Now see the design.

This picture was taken 2 days before the wedding day.. That is why it is so light. It takes 1-2 days to get the darkest color! :)



Just the lehenga!
 I couldn't even hold it properly! Let alone walk in it!!! I hold it from one side, it slips from another.. hold it from 2 sides and it slips from two other... God.. Phew!!! :P


How I love These Bangles.. Love the color and everything!!!!!!!!!!!


Di/Sis said I look golu-molu (cute) in this.. is it?? So I'm posting it here for you to decide! :D


My Danglers!!

And now you see me Dancing.. If you don't know.. I LOVE TO DANCE.. It's like.. After Engineering.. and if Interior designing happens.. I'd love to dance for the rest of my life!! :) Dat's why I said in my previous posts, sis and me danced from morning till night!!




Now, why the wedding happens in the morning? Cos our elders believe that there is some bad energy after 12am.. So the main wedding rituals (pherre) happen in the morning.. say early!!

And this is the Last and my Favorite picture :)



So did you like The Big Fat Indian Wedding?? And the pictures??? And me?? :P ( I know I use too many smileys.. Can't control guys!)

Did you like the Lehenga..???
So many pictures still coming up!! Sis says.. there are around 4000 pictures in total.. Woahhh!!! I can't show them all ofcourse.. These were the ones clicked by my mobile.. Reception pictures are still left.. So stay tuned for more fun :)

And don't forget to take part in my Blog Sale.

Before I sign-off. I wanna ask.. what are your plans for V-day??? I'm not sure about mine yet.. But will tell soon..And also, I'll be putting a DIY Valentine's Day Nails just for you.. Before 14th.. So keep coming :)
And as Promised.. I will also announce my first contest on Facebook soon..
