A Throwback post to a Cosmopolitan shoot



I think memories are very important. Without memories, we are nothing. It is the past that makes us who we are.
One of my author friends, posted this snap on her Instagram, and it brought back memories of that wonderful afternoon, when Cosmopolitan magazine featured all of us for a shoot, and flew us to Delhi.

This is one of the pictures from the shoot, and we were all featured in the magazine the following month.
A wonderful afternoon indeed.

Tomorrow, I am off to make many more happy memories. One of my closest friends is getting married, and I am so so so happy for him. I am flying with my family, to attend his wedding. I have to wake up at the unearthly hour of 3.00 am, as I have an early morning flight to catch.
(but that does not mean my blog marathon is excused. I promised a new post every day, and promises are promises. What can I say? I am old fashioned that way :) )

Shall blog again tomorrow.
See you then!
Good night.

  1. Wonderful beautiful pic...somehow seeing you all ladies instil a different energy in me and firms my believe that we women are not less and if we have the will we can achieve anything.. we can make a life of our own...we can get out of our comfort zone and do something different. And lastly I so love the fact that you are dedicated and take your promises so seriously...i have learnt this lesson from one of my close friend praveen who taught me how to value ones own words and how to not make promises if you can't fulfill them. Never had I taken my own self and words so seriously except after having met this friend of mine and i can see that you are equally dedicated..there is so much to learn from you Preeti that i am at awe what to pick and what to leave. You are not tradiational you are mixture of everything.. ..a unique person in your self...

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…

Are you missing a sign? (or What do you think this means?)

Yesterday, something strange happened to me.
In the mornings and in the evenings, I always take my dog for a walk. Sometimes, we go thrice a day.
Yesterday, in the morning, when I went for my walk, I saw this.

 It was a little rope which was lying in my path in the shape of a heart. I just found it cute and amusing. So I clicked a picture and posted in on my Instagram stories. (I keep posting  throughout the day, tiny snippets from my life.) Those of you who follow me on instagram, must have seen this in my feed. You can see my foot and my dog's paw in the above photo.

Then I walked on. A few minutes later, I found another rope/chord lying on my path--and this one too in the shape of a heart! I clicked another photo.

Here too you can see my foot and my dog's paw.

I had read a lot of posts from Erin Pavlina, as in the past many remarkable coincidences kept happening in my life. Erin has written a very useful piece,where she explains how to tell if something is a sign from the…

A few happy things!

Over the last few days, I have been making a portrait every single day, as a part of#Risedrawas well as the May Drawing challenge. Initially I was posting my portraits every single day, on this blog. Then I realised that not too many people read this blog for  my portraits :) Also I do have a dedicatedInstagram page for my art where I post daily!

I didn't see any point in duplicating the same here. Especially because, I also post it on sktchy app. So to post it a third time on my blog, didn't make any sense.

 In case  you do not have an Instagram account, you can still click on the link, bookmark it, and see it from your laptop :)

Apologies to all those who have written to me saying that they are disappointed that I didn't post daily here--this was the reason.



Also a big thank you to all of you who interpreted the 'heart signs' that I had been seeing everywhere.
I want to tell you all, that the heart signs continued the next day too! It was the craziest thing ever…
