Lights, camera and Blog!

Ever wished that you could freeze time at a particular point in your life? Silly question. Of course you have! There are these precious moments of perfection, fleeting moments really, that you want to capture and store in a jar and sprinkle it with fairy dust so that it never goes missing. But it's surprising and downright insulting to those precious memories, how fast your brain starts to forget them. Not all at once, but over time, the picture gets hazy, a few details are missed. You think back 'Did that happen on a Saturday or a Friday?' or 'Was I at home when I got the call?' or 'Was it in September?' Eventually you are left with a shadow of the memory, that can never match up to its true form. But we can't freeze time. Period.

Which is why most of us go click-click-crazy and snap pictures of anything and everything that we hold close to our heart. Sometimes I'm frustrated with the number of pictures I've accumulated over the years (anyone else a hoarder?). But the little jolts of recollections that you get when you go through them is a feeling like none other. That's exactly what my blog has become to me. A book of memories, a scrapbook, a portfolio, a depository of everything good, weird and beautiful. It's no surprise that when I need to recollect the date of some event or some place I've been to, I scroll back through my blog and search for it!

So I decided to dedicate this post to my (camera) trigger happy self, and my beloved camera. In keeping with the theme, I wore this bright orange, camera print shift dress. They are the easiest to wear, most versatile and easiest to accessorize. The moment I saw this fabric I knew I wanted to make something out of it, because the print looked so cute! Take a look at the pictures while I take another walk through memory lane! :)

A walk in Interlaken, Switzerland | Globetrotter

Switzerland has always been a popular destination for us Indians. Be it newlyweds who want a Swiss honeymoon or bollywood directors who want snowcapped mountains as scenic song backgrounds, this beautiful country is always the #1 choice! So naturally when I got the chance to turn a work trip into a full fledged holiday with the promise of swiss chocolates and frolicking in the snow, I grabbed at it without a second thought.

Interlaken is a little town in Switzerland, sandwiched between two lakes on either side. And of course it is famous for its popular Jungfrau Park. Every road you turn into is as picturesque as the previous one and its populated with cute Bed 'n Breakfast places all over. Of course, it's also very expensive but that's the price you pay to enjoy this 

So let's take a walk around town while I give you reasons why it is worth a trip!

You get to enjoy lush green views and snowy mountains at a distance. All this with warm and bright sunshine!

Sassy in green

Sassy wouldn't be the first word that anyone would attribute to me. But by the time you get to know me and we finish a couple of rounds of gossip over iced tea and unhealthy fried food... well probably not even then. I recently read this article and I couldn't help but nod to almost every single point mentioned!  I am an extroverted introvert (or an introverted extrovert?). Either ways it confirms my belief of what I had suspected since long - that I have an extremely moody personality. Hilarious one minute and mysterious the next second. Awkward one minute and the-one-who-reaches-the-dance-floor-first the next second. You can say I am either extremely adaptable or highly annoying. I choose to go with the former. Don't listen to what family and friends say.

But these green shades make me feel sassy, like I've finally joined the cool kids by their table. If you've been a geek all your life, you'll understand the feeling. I've pretty much been wearing them non-stop since I purchased them. I initially had my heart set on the blue reflectors. After a rather tough decision process of trying to choose between the blue and green ones, which involved endless cups of coffee, frantic googling and three whole days of visiting every online/offline store that stocked Rayban, I went ahead with the green ones. Don't you just love it when you make the right choice for a change?

Monsoon Madness

Photoshoots during the monsoon are all about how fast you can manage to get a few decent pictures during the 5min rain-free time that the rain gods decide to give you. It's all about rushing out, hoping the lighting is good enough to not make your pictures hazy, clicking a few shots and praying that the slight drizzle that started has not gotten onto your camera lens. And I must say I've become a pro at this. Shoots that used to take half an hour are now finished in exactly 5min. Outfits are mentally planned and stored in imaginary files in my head. In fact a whole file system has been dedicatedly developed and arranged for what clothes to wear and when, based on weather, color, newest-addition-to-wardrobe or dug-up-from-farthest-corner-of-wardrobe and a whole lot of other factors (all in my head). So dressing up is a two minute job. More so because I've started to completely ignore doing up my hair during the monsoon. Humidity and frizzy hair are bffs. And I have given up trying to tame my hair and instead started embracing the wavy, frizzy and voluminous look that comes with it. Why waste a whole lot of time and hair products just to have it go back to the same state in a couple of hours? If beach waves are a thing, then I insist that frizzy-monsoon-hair be a thing too. Only fair right?

This bright maroon skirt from oasap.com has become my go-to outfit for most days. Now I'm always wary about buying from online stores that offer wholesale or mass produced products. When something is dirt cheap you automatically start doubting it's quality. And when so many of these Chinese online stores started cropping up, I was even more sure that I din't want to ever buy from them. But oasap has surprised me not once or twice but quite a few times. Their product quality is surprisingly as good as their prices and variety! *win-win*
