Wedge heels saves the day!

Purvi (aged 6) trying out my shoes just before the party

Yet another Children’s birthday party (sigh!)
Kids AND parents invited.

Unfortunately, husband is traveling.
Fortunately, there were many women whose husbands were traveling as well.
Unfortunately, there was no Vodka.
Fortunately, there was no Conrad/Conroy too!
Unfortunately, there was one ridiculous game for mothers and children.
Fortunately, my kids decided it was too ‘dumb’. (and we did not take part)
Unfortunately, there were other ‘compulsory’ categories.
Fortunately, I enjoyed it, because I won it :-)

It was a prize, for 'the mommy with the highest heels.' And yes—the winner was me.
I have always loved wearing high heels. I always feel ‘party attire’ is incomplete without those killer heels. But this is the first time I have got a prize for it!

Yeah—I guess you could say the party wasn’t so bad after all. Despite there being no husband and no Vodka !!

  1. Ahhhhhhh.. I would have loved to be in that party.. I would have given you stiff competition, lady! :D

    I am all about the high heels. My appa came to visit me and he had normal reactions to the rest of the apartment. He step into my walk in closet, he turns and looks at me and gives me a lecture on how I should not waste money on shoes and hand bags!
    :D

    No outfit is complete without high heels, period!

  2. I love high heels too. I had to have serious surgery on my right leg some years ago and my foot and the lower part of my leg are partially paralyzed and my main worry was whether I would be able to wear heels or not again.
    It took a lot of practise but by golly, I can wear heels!

    Hi ps,

    Congrats for the prize! My wife too got a prize like that soem time ago in a ball that we attended in Delhi.

    Soory about the vodka, I know being a woman it must sound it a little too ambitious, but like me, you can expore the possibility of keeping a hip flask. And call it a purse flask, or something.

    You daughter looks cute in the heels. My daughters too do this cat walk all the time.
    Cheers!

    Raj:Thank you! appreciate your taking time to comment.

    Kulpreet:ah--a hip flask! As it is I'm branded a non-conformist.And also not that much of an adddict.So no hip flask for me! :-)

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.


I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…

A Valentines Day special! (Win a trip to Mumbai, and attend Women Writers Fest with me!)

Hello!

How have you been? How has the new year started for you? I hope all is good.

 This is  my first post of 2019 (God, where did January go? And where did two weeks of Feb vanish?!) and it's on Valentine's day.


I have a lot of news to share with you, though if you have been following me on Instagram or Twitter or facebook, this isn't really 'new news' to you. I have decided to read a 100 books this year! Yes, a hundred :)

And guess what--I have already finished 13, and am now on my 14th. This is probably one of the reasons, I didn't blog earlier. I was too caught up in reading (and writing my next book). If you want to see all the books I have read, and what I thought of them, I have put them all in the highlights on my instagram page.

You don't need an Instagram account to  view it. Just click on the link, and then look at circular  icon, which is the highlights. I have named it 'Books'. I have also shared tips to read more, My favourite books o…

Why I cannot speak for free at your event.

This post is similar to the semi-rant post that I posted a while back--- Why I cannot read the Stuff you send me.  Once again, I am compelled to write this post, after a long e-mail exchanges.

 I am writing this post so that the next time I get a request, I can just send this link and avoid repetitive email exchanges or explanations.

I get invites from MANY colleges and many corporate organisations, throughout the country. The requests are many more than I can handle.

'Ma'am, we are your huge fans..We will display all your books...we will take care of your travel and stay but we don't have a budget for speaker fees.. We must tell you that  X,Y and Z, including Abdul Kalam spoke  at our college and they did not charge any fees .'.  This is the general tone of emails.Many  of the college festivals that invite me  have music concerts and would not hesitate to spend huge amounts for  paying the singers and flying the performers in. And so, what shocks me is that the colleg…
