Single????? Marry Yourself!! ;) ;) ;)

Hola Girlies!! 🙂

Hope everything is fine and cheerful around you! How are winters treating you so far? Since, I stay in Bombay It’s not even close to getting colder here and I am all awaited to slip on my boots and woollen outfits! Though, not too sure if I’ll get the chance.. 😛

It was a gloomy morning for me today and on top of it, I got the news of another bestie getting hooked…. :O So, there was one thought that struck me!!

SO WHAT, if all my friends are either getting married, hooked or planning a family, while I am sitting here, seeing my blog grow and working my arse off as a banker. I can marry myself 😉 after all, the latest trend sweeping the nation is beautiful, elaborate weddings. Doesn’t it sound uber cool !!!

If you’ve been Pinteresting your wedding non-stop with no potential groom/date available, this post will make your day. Imagine, having an elaborate party with your friends and then going on a getaway to a honeymoon suite of a fancy hotel(I know this sounds like Queen, the bollywood movie inspired, but isn’t it total awesomeness). During your excursion, you try on your dream dress like a traditional Indian outfit or a sexy white gown, choose your floral arrangements, pamper yourself to the core and get your hair and make-up done for a photo shoot and get as many pictures as you want without a complaint from a man for you being self-obsessed.

Best of all? You get to choose a gentleman to be in your pictures, so  when you show off your wedding photos it will be less awkward.   Even better? I bet your pretentious groom won’t argue with you about  your expenses. (HAHAHAHAAAA… this is so not valid in India,  I’ll be killed by my future husband on  these thoughts 😉 😛 )

Btw, while writing this post I figured, its not just me thinking of  this, There is a Japanese company, launching it’s new “Solo  Wedding” venture for women who want their own special day  without the groom. 😀

What say, Girlies??? What’s your take on this???? 😉

I’m already planning a vacation with such perks as soon as my  banker’s profession gives me a break. 😛

Hehehehe…. another thought, Unfortunately, the male model that’ll  be available for the photo shoot doesn’t come with you to your  honeymoon suite. (I’m soo getting killed 😉 😛 lol)

 

That’s all on my dreamy post, I’d love to write more such posts for all you Girlies, until then hope you guys have a wonderful day!!

Being INDIANASTIC!! #DIWALI

Now that’s being Indian & Fantastic!! 😉

Hello Girlies,

I know it’s too late for a Diwali post, but out of the many hundreds celebrated, Diwali is one of my favourite festivals, so, couldn’t miss writing about it. A very happy Diwali to you all.

This time of the year is super exciting because it’s bombarded with festive parties, cocktails and weddings, So, best part about it is shopping traditional & fantastic Indian outfits. One such Indianastic anarkali, I had worn for Diwali this year. Bright, colorful, lively and when I saw it, I instantly knew this was going to be a part of my festive wardrobe.

For my make up, I went with a dull nude eye shadow all over the lid and drew on a dramatic eyeliner to match the grandeur of the look. Contoured my cheek bones for a flawless appearance and finished off with a touch of blush on the apples. I matched my lips to the dress which is one of my all time favourite combinations. I decided to go with simple pumps in a similar hue to streamline the look.Also, we Indians share this eternal love for jewellery, though I kept it bare minimum for this already heavy look.

That’s all for my Diwali outfit. I’d love to write more such posts for all you Girlies, until then hope you guys have a wonderful festive season and wish you all a very Happy Diwali and a prosperous new year!

Love ya all

Sunday Dinner date Plans… Need help?? ;)

Hello Girlies …

Thinking of planning a sunday dinner date with your loved ones? Then you’re at the right place.

From gourmet ingredients, street style eateries to all night deliveries, Mumbai is a home to dozens of exquisite dining options catering to almost every product or service demanded by the discerning diner or self described “foodies”. One such place is “Masala Library”. After Punjab Grill, its a new venture by Jiggs Kalra and its one of his finest creations. And you gotto read below as I was literally sitting at the edge of my seat waiting to see what’s coming next. 🙂Masala Library

So, I visited this place for my 1st experience of Molecular Gastronomy dining or Modern Cuisine (Its a style of cuisine in which chefs explore culinary possibilities by using liquid nitrogen. Is it safe? 😉 Oh, yes it is completely safe and healthy).

It was a special evening for my sister as we were celebrating her Karvachouth (Indian tradition fast). Since, we wanted it to be a special one, we secured a table 8-10 days in advance. So, as we entered, the ambience and hospitality was usual and basic. But the dining experience started with two complimentary appetizers – a Thandai shot (refer the image below) and a Maska Bun. Must admit, the shot was exquisite which went down smoothly with a burst of Indian flavors.

This was followed by our order from the menu- the mushroom chai (actually a soup :)), dabolical papad platter with 8 chutneys, its a papad lovers delight 😉 and Quesadillas with a south indian twist which was YUMM..

Papad Platter

After the appetizers, I was really intrigued by another round of complimentary dish which (as they explained) was to cleanse our system before the main course. It was a frozen Mishti doi Lolly (more like an ice-cream Lollipop) and I had two, have to admit, it was Yumm ummm.. girlies…

For the maincourse, we ordered Aloo Bukhara Korma (Signature dish – Potato with curry), Veg Ratatouille along with white wine kneaded naan (bread), cheese margherita and mushroom kulcha (bread). Again, it was exquisite with diversity of traditional Indian fare but didn’t eat much as I wanted to keep some space for desserts in my already bloated stomach. 🙂

Now this is the best part! For sweet endings, we ordered Jalebi caviar, which is a sinful dessert you must try along with a Biscuit ice-cream. Yummy yumm.. it was…

I’m still not done, Girlies!! We were again served with their compliments, a paan flavored Cotton Candy, which was a Perfect way to end the special night reviving the old lost childhood memories. 😉

Not only did I enjoy the food but I also appreciated the servers’ knowledge about each dish and the origin of its ingredients as well as the well-lit simple décor of the restaurant. Overall,I give it a 9/10 to this ultramodern culinary tradition as #Masalalibrary by #Jiggskalra (1 point to be deducted because of not readily available reservations).

So, Girlies, go and have this exquisite fine dining experience with your lovelies. And don’t forget to share your experience with me by posting the picture on instagram (tagging @nikeeta13 with #girlydiaries) and I will feature you on my next blog 🙂
