Flowers in the sand

Day 2 in Goa. (P.S - lots and lots of pictures!)

From the moment I bought that dress, I knew that it would debut itself in Goa. There was no where else I could ever wear it. 

My last Goa trip was in December 2011, where at that time I was filming with the crew for Go Goa Gone. After that, I made several plans to return for a vacation but it just never happened.  This trip was already cancelled once, thanks to a shoot that suddenly sprang out of nowhere. But then the shoot was cancelled and my plans were back on course.  

About the look I went for, I can't really say much about it. I think the pictures speak for themselves. I like bright colours. I like colour blocking too. And there's this little ethnic-gypsy vibe, that I sometimes seem to enjoy.
About the title, well it was Elvis' idea. He uploaded one of the flower pictures on Facebook with the same title, and I just loved the sound to it.

Flaunting my new tattoo like a boss.

I had no idea that this was even clicked!

Ignore the tourists behind me!

I found some new friends.

We wrote stuff in the sand.

Letting go of my starfish friend!

We also got some really nice pictures.. Without me being the central focus (as mom put it)

It was Republic day after all. So this seemed really apt.

No album is ever complete without your feet more than two feet off the ground!

Group jump!



 LOVE again..

Some guy watching me as I tried to jump of the wall thing.

Photobombing Elvis!

And again!

These two ruining my jumping picture!

A little help with flower arrangement!

Stripping so that I can finally go into the water!

Most pictures by Sheehan. The ones in which you see Sheehan (jumping ones) are taken by mom.

I'm proud to say that none of these pictures have been re-touched. Not even colour corrected. 
Sheehan + Canon 60D = AWESOME

A much needed mini break!

My first day in Goa! 
Okay we actually left on Thursday night by bus, and reached Friday by noon (delays!) So here is Friday evening in Goa. Please excuse the 'blah' faces I was suffering from travel-lag, if there is such a thing.

 With mommie..

After this we headed over to the Grape Escapade, a fest in which Reveilo wines took part in (my dad works with Reveilo)

 Dad fake pouring me some wine!

 Love the decor idea.

Have to get rid of the Mumbai tan! Compare legs with feet, usually occurs to women who wear jeans/leggings with ballet flats on a daily basis aka me.

 Okay I didn't really stomp, just posed for the picture. There was no arrangement for one to wash off after the stomping, and of course I didn't want to walk around with purple stained feet.

 There was a giant grape too!

Moving on, lets skip day 2, because that deserves a post of it's own.. Lots of pictures coming up!
Day 3 was with this old family friend of dad, who's been living in Goa for years now.

Maybe I was a bit over-dressed. Was I?

That's all the pictures Sheehan got of me.

Shopping ban - week 2

Another week has gone by. Another 7 days of looking away from yummy sales, ignoring those 'last chance' emails I get from various websites, blocking out my sister's voice whenever she talks about something she saw, that I would definitely like..

This week, I decided to look into my closet, to see what I already had. I know I have a number of new clothes, that haven't been worn yet. Half of these clothes are being saved for an occasion, some I forgot about, and others I couldn't find when I actually wanted to use them!

So the minute I think about getting new clothes, I'll look at my 'new things' with their price tags still on, and feel content! It works.. Well a bit.

 Like this dress I got last year from Colaba Causeway..

Both my Mela dresses.

 A cute skirt from the Forever New sale.

 Sheehan got me this on one of her shopping trips. 

 This over-sized piece from AND. Actually it's not over-sized, I picked a size 16!

 A Vero Moda super Saturday find

 Tee from mom.

 Another tee mom got me.

 A gift from an aunt.

 Gift from a different aunt.

 Super Saturday (the first one ever held - I'm ashamed of myself now)

The super Saturday that went by..

 Some lingerie.. (There's more of them with tags on, but I'd rather not take pictures of all)

These cute printed ones from Claire's.

And there are definitely some more, I just haven't looked that hard for them. 

So to anyone else going on a shopping ban, I advice you to rummage into your wardrobe and discover your own things. Things you may have picked up at a bargain, or a gifted item, that you never got to. But look first.
Then decide whether you're ever going to wear it. Don't be a hoarder, (sounds hypocritical of me, but still) if something still has it's tags on, and has been bought more than a year ago, chances are you probably are never going to wear it. Give it to someone who would. Or swap with a friend who is willing to.

Make space, so that once the ban is done with, you can maybe reward yourself?

While I might not be able to wear all of them the following week, I can still try to.. Well here's to a good third week.. And the week after that, after which I'll be done with my ban! Can't wait!
