High on Heels...

My sabbatical from blogging is over. I guess I couldn’t stay away. Ok I confess, Supriya forced me to continue! She is my inspiration… [:)]

[The last week was a mess for the most part. Tonnes of things happened. I was insecure about my job, my article was going nowhere and to add the cherry on the icing was “me & him” having a major fight. We did not talk for two whole days. Nah, we did actually but they were more of sarcastic remarks and jabs at each other. I am glad it is over. He was here on the weekend all for me! Yay]

It’s been almost seven months since I started working. And these seven months have ensured that I have a lot of money or rather spending money! I am not a compulsive shopper but sometimes I do get impulsive. And I love shoes. Show me a girl who doesn’t? So well in the past some portion of my salary has been spent on SHOES.

I got my first pair of stilettos on my 21st birthday. Then no shoes buying till me emotionally blackmailed my folks into buying me a 'blingy big colourful stones' wala chappal. [Let’s not get into the costs ok?] Then in early 2008 I bought a lovely pair of heels from Inc.5.

Well from June 2008 there was no looking back. I happened to come across these lovely flats at Habit, Colaba and instantly bought them. Then we went to Matheran sometime in October and I ended up buying three chappals.
On my 23rd birthday I gifted myself two sexy heels—metallic blue wedges and black satin peep toes. Ma was horrified as usual but well I thought it would end here for a while. But come 19th January I bought a sexy pair of silver sandals.

This is my eighth pair in seven months. And I am not even guilty of over spending. Now I need a shoe-wardrobe!

P.S: Ma was upset for a while but well, she fits into all my shoes so no bother! Bf was a lil flustered. He was like just let know how much of salary would go into buying you shoes! //winks//giggles…

  8. @ Iggy

    Wonderful! You go girl!

  9. Loving them shoes! I am not so much a clothes horse, but a shoe horse. Two years ago I had to seriously put a rein on my shoecrack habit and be content with the ones I already had at home. But I did it. But by the end of last year I was into serious withdrawal symptoms and bought around 4 or 5 pairs to add my collection at home that I do wear! Believe me, I wear almost all of them. But, of course, these 4 or 5 does not count the sexy mama jamas I bought for two weddings last year! :)

    Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving that lovely comment. It is always nice to meet new bloggers and visit their sites.

  14. Something, somewhere reminds me of "The Devil Wears Prada" :) (No offences intended)
    The post reminds me that i have been working for seven months as well. What i must grudgingly admit is
    1. Blogging becomes gradually difficult to keep up with
    2. I have spent the maximum amount on hitchhiking (the costlier version of it) in and around pune.

    Job does that you. College life rocked! :(

Mind vs the heart

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Picture courtesy: Google. Only for representation purpose.
Standing on the highway, Roads leading both ways to somewhere, I stand still and wonder, Where do I belong?
The soothing lullabies of the green mist fairies call.  With promises to wrap me in the cool calm fog, Holding me in wet, gentle caresses, lulling the storm within. 
The call of the shrill, salt-laden sea sirens,  from the sun-baked rocks, Pull me back To join them as they make me one, in the fathomless abyss of wonders unseen. 
I lament my fragile being,  Born with one heart, not two, Torn between the ebb and flow of waves, And earthy scents in muddy dew. 
Both offer me refuge,  Cloaking me whole in their embrace, Dust to dust, flesh to flesh and soul to soul. 
In this battle between the mind and the heart, The heart but loses steam,  Leaving me stranded on a path to nowhere, never to be seen. 
My mind has been wrought with depression and all things crappy. This is a result of binge-watching a…

9 Things My Dog Taught Me About Life

And he has no clue…

I am guilty as charged. Per my husband, I spend every waking minute with my dog. If I am watching TV, he’s by my feet, if we plan an impromptu drive, he wants to come along, and at times, we do take him. My evening walks happen only because I have to take him. My social life is all thanks to him. And if you happen to mention the dog at a social gathering, I can go on and on about the pup even if we have nothing in common otherwise. Hell, I started an Instagram page just for the dog on popular demand!
I can assure you, though the husband isn’t convinced, that its all the dog’s doing. His popularity has only grown over the years, and who can resist those googly puppy eyes? He works his charm on all, irrespective of age, gender (partial to women though), color, and caste. He’s gentle with kids, super active with people who can keep up, he’s sensitive, always ready to share food (only yours) and so much more. His licks and cuddles have the power to melt glaciers and his …

#Sorry not sorry

I feel sorry for ‘Sorry’ – such an abused term. When you come to think of it, it is just a word, right? It holds significance in some instance and at times, it is a mere excuse. But we humans absolutely love it as an excuse, don’t we? I use this term a lot; I mean a lot! I think of myself as a kind being, and hence, if I happen to push or ignore (deliberate), I say ‘sorry’. I say sorry for things that may not need a ‘sorry’. I say ‘sorry’ to people I am not really feeling sorry for (don’t read this the wrong way). In short, I say ‘sorry’ a lot like I have already admitted. It is my ticket to moving on, a ticket to redeem myself for mistakes and sometimes, tinged with slight sadness (maybe).

But is ‘Sorry’ the right word? Mean, is it even appropriate? Like they say, first you commit the murder and then say sorry. What is the point of it? I would say nothing. Sorry – the term originated from the West Germanic term Sore that evolved to Sarig, meaning pained or distressed. It is also known…
