Blogger interview - Meet Veronika!

Hey all! Remember long back when I was posting fitness stuff? See how the blog is lacking in actual fitness stuff since I did this post? Well, it was time to sort out the fitness issue. And I turned to a blogger who I have been following for some time now! Meet the incredibly fit and gorgeous Veronika. I asked her how she kept so fit and how she finds the discipline to stick with her routine and her answers were genuine and inspiring enough to make me want to share it with all of you! So here is the Q&A

Crave/Save - Baroque sunglasses

Baroque (which simply means exaggerated expression) sunglasses seems like the perfect companion for a simple pastel dress or crisp white shirt and jeans. I have been loving Prada's Baroque sunglasses for some time now.

Bread Pudding - the simple way!

Hey all! Hope you had a wonderful weekend. I managed to exhaust my this month's shopping budget over the weekend. For all the shopping I do, I think I have to start posting shopping haul videos! What do you think?
Anyway, with no shopping to be done for the rest of the weekend, I decided to use up the sunday by indulging in my other guilty pleasure - baking! So here is a super easy recipe for the super easy bread pudding I made.

Crave/Save - Floral Pants!

What is your take on floral pants? Do you like the trend? I was running away from them till I saw this!

Yeah, her hair is a mess.. I question the styling but don't they look fantastic? So girly and so spring-y! Still not buying it? Thats cool, we can still be friends! If you are digging it, read on for some shopping ideas!

Click on the picture to buy Katie's jeans from Current/Elliott here. This retails for $198 , so go for it if you are confident you can pull it off! Here are some more shopping ideas in the same price range.

If you don't want to invest too much money in this trend, check out these lower priced options from Zara. Each of them sell for $59.90

Buy them here, here and here. Its almost impossible for me to select one of these three but I do love the third one. What do you think - floral denim - yes or no? Sound off in the comments section. I'm eager to hear your thoughts!

Polenta Fries!

My monday mornings are healthy. I eat oats with non fat milk. I try to work out. My friday evenings on the other hand... Lets just say  there are a lot of potatoes involved. Fried potatoes. Sigh. Anyway this week, I ran out of them (gosh!) so I had to look for some more creative options. Little did I think I would find something that was healthy also.

Gone with the wind!

I have been faced with a problem ever since I advocated breezy pleats and lightweight chiffon for spring. Its a flash festival everytime the wind blows. And the wind never seems to stop blowing here in SFO. Solution : Enter culottes and palazzo pants.

What do you say? Would you jump on this trend? I can see myself wearing the midi jumpsuit and the cropped versions. Long palazzo pants might not good look on my 5' 5" frame. Which ones would you go for? Click on the links to shop your favourite ones.

Here is a look I put together with the shoe!

Just Something Silly!

The Hubs and I went over to Pier 39 to celebrate losing out an hour of sleep, thanks to Daylight Saving Time. We got our caricatures drawn while we were there. Hubs thinks its pretty dumb but I think its hilarious. It doesn't look much like the both of us.. still, its cute. What do you think?

Thai Pumpkin Curry

I have never eaten a pumpkin before this day. The day when I actually though it was a smart idea to buy a one pound chunk of pumpkin. If you are wondering what happened to all that pumpkin, it was consumed 20 mts after it was made. This recipe is that heavenly.
