Currently: Dec 2017

December is going really great so far, alhamdhulillah. I've managed to get quite a lot done and I'm having a great time so far. This year has been extremely good. Entertainment wise, I'm not doing so great but oh well, when you're busy, you hardly have time for things ahaha. Here are some things I've been enjoying recently. 

Young Sheldon | I am a huge fan of Sheldon Cooper so when this series was talked about, I knew I had to watch it and it did not disappoint at all. The young actors are especially good and it's such a cute little series. 

Star Wars: The Last Jedi | I'm not a fan of SW but the boy is and it gives me more of an excuse to indulge in the things he loves and maybe I am liking it a bit. I did enjoy this movie, but perhaps I enjoyed Rogue One more. 

Strong Woman Do Bong Soon | Let me just say K-dramas are life. Ever since my friend Sharoona introduced me to K-series by giving me full house, I've fallen in love and this one is really cute (aren't they all?) but it is also a bit of thriller which I love and I'm very excited to continue the rest of the series. 

The Sleepwalker's Guide to Dancing by Mira Jacob | I picked this book because of the title and it is so far pretty nice, I do love stories set in 60's for NRIs and it has that Indian charm to it. I haven't really been able t get fully into it because of my busy schedule but I am loving the writing. 

Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card | This book is quite popular and I enjoyed it for the most part but there were some problematic things with the book. I do want to see the movie to see how it's all tied in. 

Reputation by Taylor Swift | Since the homegirl delivered this in Nov, I haven't been listening to anything else much. I really love it so much. I have to do a whole blog post about my favourite songs in the album (there are so many!)

What's keeping you entertained this month?

2010 me vs 2017 me

image credits

I was going through my old blog archives and saw this survey thing I did (i used to do a segment called suvey saturday, ahaha) and I realized in so many ways I am still the same person I was back then, but a few things have changed, so let's see. 

If I were a month, I'd be February. (still the same, I will always remember my Februaries)

If I were a day of the week, I'd be Monday. (Mondays are my favourite, it always feels like my day)

If I were a time of day, I'd be 6am. 3PM, (somehow this is the time where I feel the best now)
If I were a planet, I would be Pluto. (no longer a planet of our solar system, but still me)
If I were a sea animal, I'd be a Sea Horse starfish (I really love starfish now ahaha)
If I were a direction, I'd be East. (east is where home is)
If I were a liquid, I'd be Coca Cola gahuva (sweet when I need to be, bitter always, haha)
If I were a gemstone, I would be a ruby amethyst (it's also my birth stone)
If I were a tree, I would be an Oak Tree lemon tree (it smells so good and produces lemon!)
If I were a tool, I'd be a pen. (the pen is mightier than sword for a reason)
If I were a flower, I'd be a sunflower. (they spread so much cheer!)
If I were a kind of weather, I'd be rain sunshine (I'm more of a sunshine girl now)
If I were a musical instrument, I'd be a piano. (yes, I like to be extravagant haha)
If I were an emotion, I'd be excited happy (age made me realize subtle happiness is what I need)
If I were a fruit, I'd be an apple. (hahaha apples are great, I love them)
If I was a sound, I'd be the sound of laughing children rain on the rooftop (somehow slow rain on the rooftop makes me feel all the feelings)
If I were an element, I would be water. (I like to think I'm more proactive and calm, like water)
If I were a car, I'd be a Mercedes Beetle (cute and vintage)
If I were a food, I'd be a cupcake ramen (I have a newfound love for ramen)
If I were a place, I would be a garden. (gardens will always make me feel at home)
If I were a taste, I'd be sour a bit bitter (like tea without sweetener)
If I were a scent, I'd be lavender vanilla (I've grown to really LOVE vanilla, so much that I love perfumes that have vanilla in them)
If I were an object, I'd be a book. (forever a book)
If I were a body part, I'd be the eyes. (they are the soul indeed)
If I were a facial expression, I'd be confused. (hahaha, still the confused cookie I am) 
If I were a song, I would be Crush Affirmation by Savage Garden (this is everything I believe in)
If I were a pair of shoes, I would be a Louboutin ballet flat shoes (comfortable but cute, I've grown to not care too much about brands despite what I do for a living)

If I were a piece of furniture, I'd be a shelf (to keep all your favourite books and thing in)
If I were a color, I'd be yellow. (forever the color of bright cheer and sunshine) 
If I were a material, I'd be silk. (perhaps I'm still a bit of silk) 

It's funny how you're SO different from who you were years ago but your essence is still somehow the same.

Fashion Week Mishaps

As you probably know, I am obsessed with fashion and style and religiously check fashion shows and keep tabs on my favourite designers (Elie Saab, Zuhair Murad, and Kate Spade!) but fashion can sometimes also be kind of weird, crazy and downright obnoxious so the last couple years I've been tweeting some of the "mishaps" I find and it's been fun. Here are some of my favourite ones.

A lot of people enjoyed reading these which is always fun, getting people interested in the worls of fashion is pretty exciting. 

I am also doing a couple of Fashion Week Mishaps blog posts over on Famushu, whose style I adore, so check it out. In the meanwhile, embrace the mishaps!
