Jewelry of the week

Ever since my mum decided to organize my jewelry and sort them according to type for me my life’s become easy and now I feel like I can just take them out and put them back with no headache and that also makes it easy to keep wearing different ones and not pick up the same necklace that has been sitting on my nightstand for months. 

Yes, that’s how sad my jewelry situation has been ever since we moved to the new place. Maybe it was just laziness but whatever it is I haven’t even worn a lot of jewelry since Jan. 

Anyways, I just wanted to share a gift that I got from mum last year but finally got around to wearing it now. This is what I lived in all week and through the weekend ๐Ÿ˜„ So this post is a shout out to mum for her taste in jewelry, for always picking up things for me and the amazing organization skills. 

Style rutย 

Is that even a thing? I know it is. I’ve googled it.๐Ÿ˜€ whatever it is feels like the story of my life right now. A friend of mine messaged me after a long break and complimented me on the way I used to dress or accessorize or do my hair and asked me why I don’t blog fashion anymore and I look at myself wearing this baggy tshirt with worn out jeans and realize what she described was the Aditi she probably met three years ago. A lot has changed. Priorities have changed. Life has changed. Things have changed. Body has changed. I still am the nomad that I always was. I still am the fashion loving person that I was but what changed is the need to post it as much online. I have also reduced the number of times I’ve said I don’t have clothes (except for times when I really need to be getting dressed up for an event)๐Ÿ˜› but this week I feel like I really need to spend some time beautifying myself. Taking the time to skip just the tshirts and jeans and adventure a little into the world of skirts and palazzos. Play with colors and collar necks. I’m thinking white shirts and straight cuts for a while to get stuck in another style rut? 

What are you currently stuck wearing?๐Ÿ˜‰ do I see a wardrobe staple there? 

Here’s me in a plain old grey tshirt from Gap and jeans from Lucky paired with a jacket from Biba that is supposed to go over a kurtha, a beautiful gift from the MIL and my most worn outfit. Don’t mind being stuck in this one. 

PS. Please ignore the bad quality of the picture. It was taken this weekend late in the night after watching Kabali :D 


15 minute cleaning funda


This is the story of my life. Every time I try to cook it is like a bomb went off in the kitchen. I have energy today. I even took some time to sleep in the afternoon. Sitting with my mason jar full of water here I am typing away.

I just cleaned my kitchen in 15 minutes. If you know me and know my kitchen you know that is a miracle๐Ÿ˜› haha Now all I have to do is sweep and mop the floor and I’ll have a sparkly kitchen. I put all the dishes and condiments in the right place, unloaded the dishwasher, put a new load, put some sink cleaning powder and did the counters too. Wah, I don’t know if that is how long it is supposed to take each time cause it usually takes me over an hour just to do the kitchen but I’m going to follow this 15 minute timer rule. Put the timer on, clean for the 15 minutes and then take my Pinterest/Instagram break. Sip on water and listen to good music. Even blog like I’m doing right now. May be then I’ll have a clean house? *dreams*

How do you maintain a clean house? Any tips for this extremely messy person here?๐Ÿ˜€


It is a Berry good Tuesday!!



The last time I took pictures with the camera was back in February when we had guests visiting who asked me if I could take some pictures for them and then the poor camera just sat there on the Entertainment center waiting, just waiting to be held:/๐Ÿ˜› (Too much? ย Dramatic enough for you to keep reading? :P)

I must have taken 4 pictures today before the blueberries went straight to my mouth. Anyways, this is my humble attempt at food styling. Where is the style you ask? Good question. I am still looking for it. *googly eyes* I know the focus is off and I’ve also used a tiny bit of editing to make the image pop but I want to be able to take a picture without all that help.

What I lack is patience. Patience to take the extra time out to style food or even plate it properly. I cook most days and do not ever think of presenting it well.ย ย Most times I am so lazy that the pans that I have cooked in go straight to the dining table and then to the fridge. I remember them when I have to cook next and tell myself I am going to start using the 101 dishes that I have to stock the food in the fridge so I have pans whenever I want them. I may have diverted from the topic a little but you get the point. So food styling I don’t do but I love looking at pictures where it is all styled though and would love to effortlessly make my pictures look good too but I do understand that it is not as easy as it looks. Practice I guess?

How do people resist the urge when they are taking pictures of the most amazing food? I’ve been stalking people on Instagram and some of the pictures make me wish there was a way to somehow transport myself through the picture to the actual location and fall in to the food world. Is there a robot that can cook and make things look beautiful?

Today has been Berry good btw. I shopped for jeans and now I’m listening to really old Telugu and Tamil songs. Thiruda thiruda anyone?๐Ÿ˜€ haha Tripping on Chandralekhaaaaa tonight!!

Goodnight and I’ll see you guys hopefully soon with more pictures here.




Whatsapp Killin’ it.

I am a part of so many Whatsapp groups right now that its getting to a point where I can’t even keep track of what is going on. Whats worse is forgetting to wish people on it. Amma has to remind me to do it most times just because I’ve even stopped reading whats going on in groups since they’re so bombarded with forwarded messages. Luckily there is the option of now putting messages on mute and to stop your phone from downloading the thousand good morning message that come at odd hours of the day. This is the “mean” me talking. This is bad though. I feel like up until last year I actually made the effort to call people. Wish them on birthdays and anniversaries. I’m terrible with dates but atleast seeing things on Facebook or my mother reminding me was enough for me to pick up the phone, dial and wish people. I don’t even do that anymore. Now even when I see people wishing each other on Facebook. I don’t make the effort to call anymore. This is not just me. This is the 40 odd members in each group too on Whatsapp. When its someones birthday the phone is flooded with messages but its like people have forgotten that whatsapp has the option to call too.

Thoughts? Agree? Disagree?

Whyyyyy is this happening? Why can’t I just go back to randomly calling up a friend? I’ve forgotten what it is like to talk to people for hours. Forgotten how it is to just have them on call while going about doing things during the day. Calling just cause I’m bored. I can’t believe I’ve had conversations for 8-9 hours at one point and now my conversations don’t last for more than a few minutes.

I did speak to someone for a few hours though yesterday and that happened after a year? :O Wah.

What is going on???!!! First world problems?


Still here

I’m alive. Still around. Are you there? 

I’ve just been lazy. See I even drew my sleepy eyes on a planter. ๐Ÿ˜„ it’s a dull humid day. I’ve managed to drag myself out for a walk and am now half asleep browsing through Instagram and being green with envy looking at beautiful Indian homes and decor. 

When will my house look anything like that?????
