Mornings at home

My mornings at home with these two are usually crazy, especially now that Myra has holidays. Myra wants to lay and cuddle and scream and I want to sleep in or start on some work. Either ways, it’s so much fun! We wake up super late (8-8:30 usually, sometimes even 9) hence i’m obviously dreading school re-opening. These pictures are of few such lazy  mornings at home. V found a box with packaging thermocol material at work and brought it for Myra as a surprise, she is ecstatic about it. I love how lil nothings make such special play things for kids. :)papermagictwiigs papermagictwiigs papermagictwiigs papermagictwiigs papermagictwiigs papermagictwiigs papermagictwiigs papermagictwiigs papermagictwiigs papermagictwiigs papermagictwiigs papermagictwiigs papermagictwiigs

 

 

Delhi Palate Festival

When the air is cool and crisp and the sun shines a golden hue, it’s a perfect time to chill at a park with some awesome food, company and drinks. We spent the entire day at the festival and it was worth it! Myra has a blast running around and when we played out our sheet and chilled on the grass, she went into a hyper mode of acting (she loves pretend play currently) she gave us presents – ‘now open it’ , ‘and wow, what is this?’ ‘sugar!!!’ she will say while jumping with utter joy!! She’s such a delight. Avika was sweet as ever and was quite entertained with all the colourful sights around. We also got to caught up with our dear friend Nitin from INSEAD, which was great fun.

Look of the day – 

I wore Pero and Zara skirt, Myra wore Zara and H&M shorts, Avika wore Mothercare and my bag is a beach bag from Accessorise. I love it, because it’s massive spacious!! :) We use strollers from Mamas & Papas and McLarren

Playdate Gurgaon

I recently had a playdate at home, for few of the kids from Myra’s preschool class. I thought the kids would also enjoy meeting baby Avu. Which they did, throughly. It’s amazing how transfixed these little kids get when they small babies. Myra proudly introduced ‘baby sister avika’ to everyone and everyone wanted to stare, touch, kiss and hold Avu. Avika though, happily slept through all of this!! The kids also ran around the house crazy and at one point screamed in happiness for no reason, real loud. Then one of them lied down on the floor and all of them followed suit.. you get the idea.. Was a great fun and loud evening!! :)

The look –
Myra’s cool pants with fish and blue full sleeves kurta top are both from – the shop

Wills Fashion Week 2014

5 weeks after Avika’s birth this was my first outing. Last year I was more free, more spirited.. had left Myra home with my folks and spent long hours at shows and all the designer stalls, and mind you, I do it very methodically!! This year was different. I was still going through all my pains and aches and was recovering from a bad allergy that caused a severe rash on my face.

Nevertheless it was fun and I attended a show for Pero. By Aneeth Arora. I really like their stuff – It plays to my weakness – lovely cottons and muslins… I have really grown to admire this brand in the last year or so, since I have discovered it. So I really really wanted to make it. And it was the opening show and V wasn’t gonna come to this with me. He has a whole round of shows to attend himself. So I took my lovely friend Kanika along. :)
Apart from this, there was more action on the fashion scene, pics will come soon.

I wore –
Jumpsuit & T-shirt – Zara
Shoes – Saint G.
Bag – Dissona

Rent in Gurgaon

I had found her contact online and called her from Dubai, before moving here to gurgaon. Chewed her brains on all my questions and concerns and she patiently listened and answered. I had never met, leave aside spoken to, a property dealer/ real estate consultant  who you could actually talk to. Mostly it’s all haggling, waiting for the keys, misunderstanding, mis-quoting, all sorts of lies and waiting, and drama. So she sounded too good to be true. I think i even told her ‘ you sound sort of cool’!!

Then we moved here and met her. We liked her instantly as our ‘broker’. She has an amazing, likeable personality. Some very cool Tattoos. Easy to talk to and understands you well. SPEAKS ENGLISH. 😀 yes, a rental property dealer in gurgaon who speaks english!!! Anyways, so she helped us find this nice place we currently live in. Since then we have been friends and we like her a little more now. I would highly recommend her for all your property needs in Gurgaon.

Here’s Jugnu Grewal Almeida ( broker, property dealer, real estate consultant of Gurgaon) , holding little Avika, when she came to meet her for the first time.
