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.

    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!

Wake Up Life is Calling by Preeti Shenoy : Cover launch!

Hello there!

How have you been? I have been immersed in shifting my home and settling down, as you know from my last post.

If you have been following me on social media, you will also know about my NEW BOOK!  It is a sequel to Life is What You Make It.

So, your favourite character Ankita is back! This book takes off where the first one ended. The first book has an epilogue which tells you what happened fifteen years later. But it doesn't give you any details about you what happened immediately afterwards, and in the time period leading up to those 15 years.
Life is what you make it ends with Ankita coming out of the mental hospital, and joining a creative writing course. The new book Wake Up, Life is Calling starts off from there.
This book was a very difficult one to write (It took me 8 years, and I wrote nine more books in the meantime) to go back to narrate Ankita's story. I am really excited about how it has turned out.

Since Ankita starts her life afresh, in the city of …
