It's Raining Mint

Hello Readers :)

I have been in a good mood lately. Wearing a great smile everyday and braving the terrible Delhi heat. It all matches up with my personality against unmatched personalities. For those whom it was hard to understand, you will get there eventually ;)

There has been no day in my life where I haven't lived to experience small things that make me happy. Be it, going to my favorite restaurant, driving in a good weather or even looking forward to healthy breakfasts! Yes! Those around me, know that I am obsessed with; one, healthy living and two; doing what makes me happy. The second part shouldn't be read as- "doing ANYTHING to make myself happy". No I'm not a rebel or have absurd demands. Just that it takes me time to realize whether it will give me happiness in the future or not. So yea, happiness does come with a cost. But watching Cassey Ho do Pilates on her Blogilates youtube channel is one of the most exciting thing I've encountered in my life. I'm addicted to her videos, her funny personality & inspirational everything!

Speaking of videos & funny and also large part about being addicted. I can successfully say that I've become addicted to Instagram now. I've never been addicted to anything in my life but these last two years have presented me with great amount of options to choose from. One being Pilates and second being Instagram. If you go to my account (@fictitiousfashionblog), you'd find one of these two things- OOTDs and Food pics! But if you see whom/what all I follow then you'd know what addiction is. Such beautiful & positive stories fills me with love.

Here are some videos I made via boomerang for this post: (P.S: I'm having trouble uploading these boomerangs here. Doesn't come out right! Or is it fine? Let me know the right way to do it :) )

Not the Shade of Grey

I recently updated my status to "You focus on Shades-of-Grey, I do on Tinge-of-Red"
Isn't it true? It is so easy for people to say how you don't look 'fine' as per their understanding but so difficult to say one nice thing for once. It's not entirely their fault but ours! Nine people tell us we look fab and we smile and thank them. One says, your nose looks odd and we spend the entire day in front of the mirror with self doubt and loath.

I have decided to be kind to people and pity the ones who have negative to say about me without any genuine concern. :) Just one life; decision to be happy!

Talking about one life and being happy- Look what came in the mail today? These gorgeous bow red bellies. Just what I needed this week! These babies from New Chic, also come in Black & Dutch Blue. Check out the pictures and let me know what you think of this post :*

Shake the Tree

Hey Everyone

This post's title has been inspired by Suits and fits perfectly with what I'll talk about here as well!
Firstly; suits- It's the one series I use (personally & sometimes professionally) if I have to get to an answer which has no ends! Sounds thrilling, isn't it? All the Suits fans must agree to the kind of rush the series' cases gives them. It makes me think, a lot and that's a nice thing to be doing. Finally something which tingles my brain without blood in it!

The tree has already been shaken since I got this top for me. Ever since I came back to Delhi for good, I've been dreading about two things- Scorching Summer & Chilly Winter and I'm not fond of either of them.

Maybe this gives you a clear picture about what I'm saying.

So the top I have here is a perfect way to prevent myself from getting a sunburn! It's WHITE, COTTON, COVERS me up and this is what I need at this moment! I decided to pair this one with my classic patch-boyfriend denims and go boho way up. Today was thankfully not so hot to go outside and I grabbed the opportunity to get ready for nothing since my plans for the evening got cancelled (Mr. A is to be blamed). Nevertheless, I'm glad I did since I'd never have gotten up in the first place if it weren't for this post :) Enjoy the rest of the post!

Convocated

Hi Folks

I post-convocated, finally!!! I can proudly say that my post-graduation days were better than my graduation ones. The 2 years of my life taught me more than the 4 of graduation! It made me more confident, independent and happy. All of this wouldn't have been possible without Mumbai being what it is- beautiful :)

So obviously, it was my special day and I had to pick up something classy. I had worn a neutral colored jumpsuit at my farewell and got the much appreciated comments. Check out the post here.

My burgundy obsession was (and still isn't) not over so at least one thing I was sure of; the outfit had to be in burgundy. Next thing which I have been trying to find is a classy suit which I can wear on such special occasions. I went online, searched a little bit about customized suits in Delhi NCR and found this new brand called StitchMe. I wasn't sure if they'd be having the perfect color I was looking for so decided to ring them a bell. They showed me the exact color I was looking for so I asked the designer to come to my place, take the measurements and guess what the catch was? I wanted the suit to be made in ONE DAY. That meant no alterations but perfect fit. I had back-up plan ready for some formal shirt and trouser but heart wants what it wants. I sort of trusted them since they are new and would go extra length to satisfy my appetite. The next day I tried my suit and IT FIT PERFECT!
I'm so elated and satisfied with the fit and how it turned out to be. Just really happy. I got PLENTY of compliments; even from the cabin-crew of the flight I boarded. That's what you want at the end of the day- if it was worth it or not! :)
