Shop till "I" Drop!

Are you straining to hear those weird girl shrieks that girls do whenever someone says Shopping? Well, don't worry; I'm not one of them. Actually I'm not into shopping at all. Whether it’s for me or someone else, shopping is not something I really enjoy.

But now I ain't got an option. Why? You ask, because all my brothers have decided to get married. And my mom says that I'm not allowed to wear the same dress for everyone's marriage and Pant & Top is a total NO! So I've got to go shop now. For 3 marriages! Can you believe it? Anyway, my mom was eating my head off to go shop, so I thought, why not decide what I want to buy here only and then go get them. I mean, it would save so much time.

So, I open Shoppers Stop. Everyone knows they have loads of variety, and I usually go to Shoppers Stop to get my tops as they have really good quality ones. 

Well me and my brother sit together and go through the hundreds of clothes put up on display in the site, and finally we come up with 3 dresses each for the 3 marriages we have got to attend. Our choices may look really weird or totally messy, so we would like to know what you think about it before we actually go and buy them.

A black and cream Salwaar, perfect for the marriage. Comfortable enough for me to be worn doesn’t have much weight, which makes it easier for me to more around during the marriage doing the last minute preparations. It is Beautiful enough to make me look Gorgeous. And what more? It is considerably cheap and a very good quality material. 

I can not only wear this for marriage but also during fests in my college. This classic beauty will surely make me look good.

An Indigo colored Insense frill dress. A perfect dress to get me glowing during the glorious times when I get to dance.
Comfortable, Classy and awesome. What else does a girl need to show off her beauty and elegant poise?
I'm pretty sure I'll be using this dress more often than I intend to, cause I have some super seniors who keep throwing parties where we have to dance. So yay!
Its time to Party!! 

Okay! I'll try not to be too dramatic, but OH MY GOD! Just look at that top. Simple and elegant. How I love it!
I'm a big fan of black dresses, and this top just makes me want to love black more and more.
BLACK BEAUTY! The perfect phrase for this perfect top.
I can wear it anytime and anywhere. Where can you get such a beauty for such a reasonable price.
I'm wondering why I'm still writing this while I could have gone and bought this beauty.

 Its time for ACCESSORIES!!

 Remember how I told you I'm not into shopping? Yeah! I seriously am not, but I just love looking at the beautiful accessories. What? I'm a girl.

Look at this watch. I just can't take my eyes off it. Did you see the dresses I selected above? This watch is a perfect match for all of them. I mean, just look at it! It'll go with any dress.
And that color combination! Black and Silver! Wow! Just BEAUTIFUL. 
If I buy it, I'd keep waving my hand as if I'm going to see the time even if I don't have to, because I'd just like to show it off.

Sweet baby Jesus! Whoever designed this bag, please know that I love you from the bottom of my heart. Who wouldn't love this adorable little piece of beauty. The color, the design, and those flowers. Wow! Having Black Rose as my most favorite flower, I'd say this black flower doesn't look so bad as well.
I just really hope that this bad is available for sale when I go out for shopping, cause it'd be the first thing that I would buy.

I think you all have gotten the gist about how much I love black, but still, you can't deny that this is spectacular, right?
I was going through the list of sunglasses, you know looking at them one by one, and I found this. Once I did, all I could think of was, how cool and stylish I'd look wearing this. And also was trying to count the number of guys that would be behind me. I'd look really cool after wearing this, not like my usual nerdy style.

Love is in the Air! Obviously, yeah because I'm going to attend marriages, but those EAR RINGS! For a minute I'd seriously wish to convert myself into this girly type of girl and shriek out for this ear rings. I think my heart just skipped a beat looking at it. Oh! How I wish I a little older and had a special someone for myself who would gift me this, and then I'd start crying because its so beautiful.
Now I think I'm going to cry because I don't have that special someone. Anyway, coming back to point! Is anyone going to gift me these? I'm going to love you forever. Pinky Promise ♥.

asdfghjkl!! Wondering what that is? That is a type of Fangirling. Girls usually do it for their famous celebrities, but there is no such rule that its only meant for guys okay? 
Wait for a few minutes as I fangirl more over this belt, which I think is superawesomehot! Oh! By the way, that's also another fangirl line!
Look at the style! ♥ I'm so going to buy this one! Eeps!!

Umm! So, that's the end of my shopping list. Woah! That's way too big of a list. Guess I went a little overboard with excitement. Now, I seriously hope this excitement stays till I actually finish my real shopping.
Anyway, I'm actually waiting to own every single one of these. Because they are not only beautiful themselves, but I'm pretty sure they'll make me look more beautiful as well.

Last but not the least, Thanks a lot Indiblogger and Shoppers Stop for giving me this wonderful opportunity to go crazy about shopping. You might have actually turned this shopping-hating-girl to a I-can-shop girl. Thank you so much.

A Real Love Story: My entry for the Get Published contest- "Not Another Fairytale"

They say when you meet the person you are always meant to be with, you would have met your soul-mate. Then why didn't they know it from the beginning?

 Maybe, life had its own plan for them.

This is the story about a Boy & Girl, who met each other at a very young age and were nothing but friends. They grow up, leave their schools, choose different subjects and different colleges. As they didn't live in a cellphone era, they lost touch.

As time moves on, they fall in love, break up, finish their studies, get jobs, and finally learn to be independent. Now the only thing left is marriage! To start a new family and enter into a new life altogether.

As the 2 families begin searching for a suitable bride and groom for their children, A chance meeting of these friends took place in a mutual friend's wedding.

Neither one knew that this meeting would change their life forever.

Meet Nisha & Prem, who tried to find love in every wrong person, while the right one was in front of them from the beginning. They go through a roller coaster life and finally end up where they started, next to each other, just like when they were kids.

Would "one" meeting in a friend's marriage change everything forever? It all rests in their hands!

This is my entry for the HarperCollins–IndiBlogger Get Published contest, which is run with inputs from Yashodhara Lal and HarperCollins India.

The Bankster - Review

Book Name: The Bankster        
Author: Ravi Subramanian
Cost: Rs.250
Rating: 3.5/5


Bankers build their careers on trust, or so everyone thinks, till a series of murders threaten to destroy the reputation that the Greater Boston Global Bank (GB2) has built over the years. Who is behind these killings, and what is their motive?

When Karan Panjabi, press reporter and ex-banker, digs deeper, he realizes that he has stumbled upon a global conspiracy with far reaching ramifications a secret that could not only destroy the bank but also cast a shadow on the entire nation. With only thirty-six hours at his disposal, he must fight the clock and trust no one if he is to stay alive and uncover the truth.

About the Author
Ravi Subramanian an alumnus of IIM Bangalore, has spent two decades working his way up the ladder of power in the amazingly exciting and adrenaline-pumping world of global banks in India. It is but natural that his stories are set against the backdrop of the financial services industry. He lives in Mumbai with his wife Dharini and daughter Anusha. In 2008, he won the Golden Quill Readers Choice award for his debut novel, If God was a Banker.

My Review:
Well, when I first saw this book up for review, the thing that pulled me was the book cover. It looked batman-ish and the dark shaded thing just impressed me. When I read the title, I thought it was something related to banking, and as I'm a commerce student I thought I could review it, but then I read the synopsis and found out that it was something really different. I really wanted to read this book and jumped in joy when I actually received it.
By the time the book reached me, the name and fame of the book was spread far and wide.

The beginning had me hooked, Everything seemed so mysterious. But as I read on and on, the book got a bit boring. It seemed as if the author had just ranted out something really boring, but after those few pages, the story took up a high end again. 

The plot begins in the African country of Angola and with Joseph Bragnanza, a CIA covert agent involved in blood diamonds and arms dealing. From there it switches to a small town in Kerala, Devikullam and a 75-year-old man fighting the government in Gandhian way for clarity in the nuclear program being commissioned in his area and then we have our GB2 where the banking rigour, manipulations and power struggle brings out the various shades of the bankers.

Even though the book is addictive and can get you hooked, the only lack is the the pace at which the story moves. It seems as if everything is rushed. The story moves so fast that if you are not concentrating well enough you might have to go back and read again. It can get a bit confusing as people wouldn't really bother reading those 15-20pages in the middle.

All in all, its a good story. I'm reading his book for the first time, and I am really happy with his work. I am thinking about reading his other books as well now. A very well job done by Mr. Ravi Subramanian.

Once again, thank you so much Blogadda for giving me another opportunity to review an awesome book.
