Yeah I know it’s very rare that I don’t have an opinion on something but I genuinely can’t figure if I like or dislike this clutch by Accessorize. Help me, what do you think? Pick it? Diss it?
Designer Sanchita’s latest collection seems to be everyone’s favourite these days. Freida Pinto wore a Sanchita gown at Cannes, all the magazines are raving about it and bloggers are lusting over it. I am guessing everyone likes bugs and insects as long as they are fake and can’t bite. It also reminds how everyone went crazy when Rimzim Dadu did grasshopper dresses and skirts about two years ago. I love how each one’s interpretation is so different and individualistic.
Coming back to Sanchita’s latest AW 2013 collection, I really loved the accessories. I think they’re super fun. Would definitely love to pick up the clutch. What say you?
It’s always fun to work with people who love to dine with you :) That’s why when Shangri La Mumbai’s Aditi Chopra insisted that I extend my meeting to lunch at Ekayana, the new resto-lounge at the hotel that offers Lebanese and Indian fare, I just couldn’t resist. And it was the best food decision I had made in a pretty long time.
I am going to explain, ‘why.’ The problem I have with almost 99% Arabic restaurants in India is that they don’t get the basics right and already start experimenting. Dear chefs, first get your hummus right, then figure the rest. No seriously. Also, for food God’s sake, stop putting cilantro/ dhaniya to every damn thing just to Indian-ise every cuisine. Just stop.
Coming back to our lunch, I have to admit I was a little hesitant to order Lebanese. But when the food came, all my doubts disappeared. Thankfully, the chef at Ekayana keeps the recipes a.b.s.o.l.u.t.e.l.y authentic and simple. Nothing extra nothing meaningless. Pure brilliance. It’s been almost 3 years since I left Dubai, and finally my quest for good authentic Lebanese food has come to an end. The hummus was deliciously creamy, falafels were so crisp and lovely, tabouleh and fattoush were just so balanced and had only the proper ingredients. I couldn’t have asked for more! Except, freshly made Arabic bread, may be. Hopefully I don’t sound pompous like a masterchef judge while writing this.
Picky is finally happy :)
To be honest, I have quite a few sunglasses (even after losing two recently) but the problem is that most of them don’t frame my tiny face properly. Now that can be because I shop impulsively. Anyway, let’s not talk about bank-breaking issues here.
Coming back to sunglasses, recently my slightly mad but ridiculously loving stylist friend Shirin Salwan gifted me these Opium sunglasses and they just fit/frame my face beautifully!! Like them?
Just got back from WIFW A/W 2013 and as always there were brilliant shows, good shows, bad shows, friends and some drunken fun. Although I must admit I didn’t party every night as I used to (I guess this is what turning thirty means) but the two nights I did, I made ‘em count.
Here’s the quick look at all the drunken moments. Feel free to laugh!
