All about my personal style! Post16

Hi there!

Yet another Sunday! I can't believe I have kept this up for 15 days now! 😅😅

Thought I would do yet another Sunday Stealing for today's post as it is fun and light. So here goes.

What season has your favorite looks? 

Definitely summer. I like shorts and T-shirts.

    Formal or casual?

Smart Casuals.

    Thrift store, boutique, or online?

Probably boutique between the three choices. Not online, as I am very particular about the fit. 

    What’s your favorite decade for fashion?
Present decade. I don't much believe in 'look of the decades'. I believe you can always create your own style.

    Do you like to accessorize?
Always! I think it is very important to look stylish and smart.


    What does your basic outfit look like?
Single dark colour, mostly.

    What piece of clothing do you spend your money on the most?

I usually wear designer stuff--but stuff that suits me.

    Do you wear hats?

Never :) Even when I was living in the UK, I did not. Who wears hats except the queen of England?

    What is your opinion on wearing socks and sandals together?

YUCK! A big no-no. Sorry!

    What colors do you like to wear?

Black, grey, red.

    What are some of the strangest outfits you have seen?
These fusion sarees--I don't get the look at all. Sarees have to be traditional.

    What fashions do you hate?
I dislike combining two diametrically opposite things. (Example--wearing a bindi with jeans)

    What are you favorite styles?
Here's a pic clicked today which shows off my favourite style.

    What do you think of body piercing?

I considered getting my eyebrow pierced for the longest time. But decided it wasn't worth the trouble. I have just ear piercings (which my parents did when i was a baby) and have no other body piercings. I don't mind them at all on other people, and I am not at all judgemental of piercings.

    Do you like dyed hair?

Not really.


That's all for today. More tomorrow!
G'nite folks.

Buy my books:


  1. great to know about all your stuffs! as always again your blog is amazing

    1. Haha--so sweet of you to say that. This was just a fun, light post.

  2. Any peek into your personal life, makes us feel closer to you as readers!!!

  3. It was really interesting reading this post, Preeti and getting to know more about you. I thought I would try it out myself. Here are my answers: -

    What season has your favorite looks? - Summer as I love to chill out in T-Shirts, 3/4 pants, skirts and jeans.

    Formal or Casual? - Mix of both

    Thrift Store, Boutique or Online? If its for a special function, then I would choose a Boutique. Otherwise, it is mostly Online.

    What's your favorite decade for fashion? I do not have a favorite as I follow my own style.

    Do you like to accessorize? I love it! I am not sure how many boxes I have filled with bracelets, earrings and necklaces.

    What does your basic outfit look like? - 6 days a week I have to wear a Saree to work. On Sundays, I am normally in 3/4 pants or jeans. It depends on where I am going.

    What piece of clothing do you spend your money on the most? Salwar and Kurtis

    Do you wear hats? Never

    What is your opinion on wearing socks and sandals together? I used to as a kid and while traveling during my 20's. However, I stopped it in my 30's!

    What colors do you like to wear? - Any color but white as I feel it makes me look plump.

    What are some of the strangest outfits you have seen? a jacket worn with a Saree or even shoes with a Saree.

    What fashion do you hate? Somewhat to what you wrote, but if its a very tiny Bindi with jeans, then that is fine.

    What are your favorite styles? I love wearing a Saree or Lehenga with matching accessories!

    What do you think of body piercing? I have my ears pierced. When I was in college, I had got the top of my ear pierced, but unfortunately, it got infected and had to stop wearing earrings there.

    Do you like dyed hair? Not weird colors. Something sober like dark brown or burgundy which does not remove the natural look as I follow this!

My TOP TEN books for 2018

I have read 35 books this year. If you are looking to read MORE  in the new year, I have also written a post on it : 5 easy ways to read more and transform your life.

Since the end of the year is a good time to make a list, I thought I would share my TOP reads for this year. (It would be difficult to list all 35 I read, and also I didn't enjoy all)

So here are my top  ten in no particular order. (It was very very very hard to pick just ten).
I am not writing what these books here about as you can easily look them up online,  and read what they are about. Some are non-fiction in this list. They might have been published many years back--but it is just that I read them this year.

1. Nightingale --Kristin Hannah.

2. Childhood friend --Vaikom Muhammed Basheer

3.The Last Email --Mridula Garg

 4. Little Fires Everywhere --Celeste Ng

5. Bad Blood --John Carryrou.

6. Knight of seven Kingdoms: GRR Martin

7. The Little Prince:  Antoine de saint exupéry

Forty seven things I learnt.

I turned 47 today. This is a picture clicked today. I received a lot of flowers today.

The older I get, the more grateful I am for everything that I have in my life. Today, I am living my dream. There's nothing more I ask from life!
The path hasn't been easy at all. There have definitely been so many downs. When I look back, I think for every victory of mine, there has been a failure. But I have fought. I am a fighter. I never give up.
Persistence pays.
Age has made me wiser, calmer and very very sure of many things.
Here are 47 things I have learnt along my path. These are things I practise.

1. Say NO to negativity of any kind.
2. People will treat you the way you allow them to.
3. If people really care for you, they will make time; Otherwise they will make excuses.
4. Be grateful for every one who is kind to you.
5. Better to have TWO genuine friends who truly care for you than a HUNDRED friends who aren't so genuine.
6. Fitness is everything.
7.Always have a 'nest…

On keeping diaries and journals.

In my book A Hundred Little Flames Gopal Shanker keeps a diary. I have based him on my own grandfather who used to keep diaries.

I too have kept journals and diaries ever since I was a child. This year, I am happy that I managed to write a page, every single day. In addition to my personal diary, I also kept an illustrated journal this year. I found it was great fun. I am sharing three pages from my illusrated journal, to give you an idea of what my journal is like.

You can see the date stamp on the top right corner of each page, and you can see how I have drawn something from my day. Often there is nothing dramatic in my day. They are just ordinary days. But what I like is to find something 'worthy' from that day, and draw it in the journal.
I follow just one rule for my journal--no recording negativity of any kind. I focus only on the positives.

In my personal diary, I write my thoughts--my goals, what I have to do in the future, and generally I record whatever happened tha…
