More delicious Lady's Fingers!?

When its cloudy and dark outside, you needn't be gloomy inside.
Bright nail colours are here. Painting your nails with bright Matte colours is IN.
And it is also an instantaneously effective way to lift your spirit on a gloomy, rainy day.
SO if you are at work or stranded at home, see that you have a bottle of one of these colours handy..And paint way...

However see that you are not sporting too loud and disturbing colours on your nails at meetings, conferences and other formal occassions at work. Try mettalic shades of gold, white, bronze and graphite.)
Before, I usually wore nail colours that suited my skin tone, selecting them very cautiously. An they were mostly neutrals and mettalics but this time the trend is to let go off all inhbitions and go wild with these extremely zanny shades. And you may even wear a contrasting colour to your outfit highlighting your fingers, without a care!

This Mango shade is one of the wildest Ive sported this season besides the neon green I dared to wear the other day. You can see one of the other available shades of green on my friends long, fair, slender fingers.

The photographs are not doing full justice. You would find that the nails looked even more awesome if you saw it in person. I tried an electric Blue shade with a single swish of sparkle on top, on my nails the other night. We are both wearing Black and these colourful nails just made us look more chic!

Following these nail trends will give a new lease to your fashion sense and will also speak a lot about your personality. SO go ahead and indulge.  Make 'em look more delicious!

S(u)rge of DeNimes again!!!

Originally made in Nimes, France Denims have been in use in America ever since the 18th Century and now Denim Shirts are back in vogue by the trend alert given by my style guru Smrithi Rao at Vintage Obsessions. 

So what I promptly did was, salvage my Denim Shirt from the back of my wardrobe and go Retro too.
I decided to team it up with my favpurite pair of fatigues.

I put the look together with Levis Jean Shirt, Rifle Fatigue Pants, Grey Singlet, Tissot Sea Touch Smart Watch, Vintage Silver neck band, Vintage Silver and pearl earrings

I have SAGS!

If you are reading this since you are intrigued to know about SAGS then you are tagged.

And YES. I have sinned against gender stereotypes again and again and again.
I had been tagged before but I was in no mood to confess.Sorry!
But now that I've been tagged once again I seem to be compelled to go ahead and spill it all out. :)
Thanks MAKK

My list of Sins Against Gender Stereotypes, I confess herein below:

1. Though I went to an all girls Convent school and College, I have always been a hardcore TomBoy.
 My Chaddi Buddys were two brothers and they were my closest friends till I entered my teens. I literally grew up like one of their kind. My only name-sake 'girl' friends were twins and I was never on their wavelengths. I hated it when the two sisters got into cat-fights and I had to act like their refree.

2.  As a kid I was a dark, tall and lanky girl sporting a boy cut. So I easily gelled in with the guys and people who didnt know us mostly never noticed that I was a girl playing with the boys.The game I have thoroughly enjoyed as a kid was 'Gully Cricket' with my boy gang. I stood taller than most boys of my age and often managed to boss over them. I was thus always the Captain of my cricket team.

3. I have a huge collection of HotWheels Cars with a petrol pump set up and garage. I still treasure them. I hated Barbie dolls but did possess 3 out of peer pressure from those twins. I felt very silly though attending the girl's Barbie Doll partys.

4. I had never entered the kitchen until after my mother passed away. When she was around I dint help her in the kitchen at all. In fact I dint even know how the gas knobs were operated and was clueless about boiling water too.

5. Though I was obviously very Tom Boyish at my school too, I never felt like I was fish out of water. In fact I took all my boyish talents and tales of my escapades to school and had quite a fan following there. I walked the ramp dressed like a guy at inter-school fashion shows and danced as the male in the pair at inter-school dance competitions. I also compered shows at school functions dressed in blazers acting as the male host!

6. I adore Men's perfumes and after shave lotions more than the girly floral ones.

7. I dont like wearing punjabi suits excpet for extremely ethnic occassions like at Diwali. I still dont know how to drape the saree on my own and thus I dont prefer wearing one to weddings.

8. I hate to gossip with the gals and feel left out when there is too much girly chatter around since I can never contribute much. My topics of discussion and interest still remain guyish till date, mostly cars, cell phones, etc.

9. I hate to attend kitty partys and regret attending the few pajama partys I'd attended in my school days.

10. At partys you'll find me grooving BINDASS to the music. I cant be the coy, demure, seductive girl on the dance floor. I love to ROCK it!!!

11. I love Black Stallions and dream of learning to ride a horse some day and maybe own a ranch myself! :))

This Tag is open to all my readers. Go ahead and confess!
Have you SAGS too?
