Tea for two (and a piece of cake) Tuesday No.4


So, my BIG day is tomorrow--the day when my baby goes out into the big bad world. Treat my baby kindly will you? :) If you still do not know what I am talking about--go here. 

I am excited and I will not have time to post the prompt of 'Tea for two and a piece of cake' tomorrow. So here goes:


 Can a relationship be like a tea-stain? Why or why not?

 Lovely thinking prompt right? :) (Thank me!) :) 

I am totally swamped with the book launch and will not be able to leave comments on your individual posts but I do read them ALL. Each and everyone. And I love how there is so much camaraderie now amongst the participants! 

 And by the way,I have another launch in Pune on 18th,6.30 PM at Crossword, ICC trade Towers, Senapati bapat Marg. If you are in Pune, come!:)

 Now, put on your thinking caps and dive into this prompt.

  and hey--wish me luck for tomorrow. I need it! ________________________________________________________________________________ ps: Interact with me on FB. I always reply back :)

  16. Just back from the Bangalore launch. Very nice and there was a queue of people waiting to get their books signed by Preeti. Preeti looked stunning, happy, proud, tired, beaming with a sense of accomplishment . The cakes were lovely, but the tea has morphed into juice :)

    Bravo Preeti. Wishing you much success ahead.

Hello!

A bit  of news I have is this FUN and EASY contest that we are running, where two winners will be flown to Mumbai to attend Women Writers Fest  (click on link to know all details) with me ! We will also take care of the hotel stay for a night.  And ALL participants will get an assured surprise in their inbox on 28th Feb!  We started it today, and it goes on till 25th feb.
Isn't this Fabulous? I am very excited about it!

What do you have to do to enter?




Simple--Share a pic with 'Life is What You Make it' and post it  on YOUR social media (blog, facebook, Twitter, Instagram--anything you like and use the hashtag #LifeWithPreeti so we find it. Also set your account to public! Please make it a post (as stories disappear in 24 hours)
We have already started receiving pictures from as far as Kedarkanth. I am absolutely loving it, and it is so moving and wonderful to see all the pictures.


I have a lot of news to share with you, though if you have been following 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…

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…
