Back from Vacationitis…

by

So, I am back from vacation and I have so much to blog about I just don’t know where to start. I am still so perked up after the short break that I am probably going to blather on in my blog for the next couple of weeks about the fun we had (interspersed with long pending reviews of course!).

I spent the whole of last week attending a friend’s wedding in Mumbai, and then traipsed off to Goa’s sunny shores for some much needed R and R.

Before I start off relating my travel saga, I just need to add some tidbits about the shopping preparations leading up to the trip. After all, that’s where the fun first started.

My friends and I went on a random shopping trip to Commercial Street (Bangalore’s top street shopping destination), when I suddenly got the brilliant idea of getting a new salwar kameez for my friend’s wedding. Popped in to Fazal’s and immediately hit on the perfect one for me. In muted shades of green and brown (I love this color combo, even my blog has a similar color scheme :)) with just the right amount of sequins, I knew I had a winner with this one.

Here is a shot of the salwar:

The colors are really beautiful, here they appear a bit too bright

One of my friends also mentioned seeing a gorgeous churidhar kameez at a newly opened boutique called Suvasa in Indra Nagar, suggesting that I might also like that one for the wedding. I didn’t really take her suggestion seriously but then I happened to pass the store a couple of days later, and saw it displayed. Walked in and within 10 mins, this one was also a part of my closet 🙂

Here is a shot of the churidhar (did I mention it is pure silk :)):

Quite a steal for a silk churidhar kurta

So, everything clothes-related was set for the trip. Now, I only had to decide on the books I was planning to take with me.

I thought something light and not too taxing would be ideal, and so into the suitcase went Everyone Worth Knowing by Lauren Weisberger and Peony in Love by Lisa See.

I have finished with the Lauren Weisberger, which turned out to be a disappointing read. I pretty much love what I have read so far of Peony in Love, and am looking forward to seeing how the story evolves.

Also coming up are more photos and some fun travel memories that I’d like to share with you all 🙂
