Is there anything better than a weekend? Yes! an EXTENDED WEEKEND!

I am home! I am home! I am home!

Hi, this is I :)

Clearly, I am so excited. The green environs, the smell of the air, my ride, everything about Chandigarh is so different! After living in Delhi for 2 months, My connection with MY city, MY family, MY friends back home has shot up manifold.

One MUST MUST live in another city, for it is an experience that can only be lived, not told. :)

I am pampered like crazy, and I've got so attached to everything back home! I have so much more to talk to my parents, which was clearly not the case, when i lived with them. So, here , I've compiled 5 reasons why you should , at least for once in your life, move out.

1. Makes relationship's stronger : Trust me, it does! It breaks the montony in a relationship, and adds a certain freshness to it. There's so much more in meeting a friend after a few months, or updating them on skype, with what's happening your side, than regularly chatting with another friend on fb saying what's up, when the other has nothing to say! It doesn't let the relation stale, there's always a freshness in it.

2. Makes you multi cultural : When you move out, you meet n number of people from across the country. You learn how to celebrate id, as well as Ganesh Chaturthi. You learn a line or two of Tamil, and Asamese, and can boast that I have friends all across the country!

3. Makes you INDEPENDENT : When you have 100 rs left in your budget, and there's still a week left for the month to end, that's what teaches you how to live! Living out, obviously makes one independent. Till yesterday, I lived a carefree life, no responsibilities, got money whenever i needed it, but the moment i moved out, heaps of responsibilities burdened my shoulders. I am definitely a lot more independent today, than I could have ever been , living at my place.

4. Widens the horizons of your mind : You learn, that India is not just Delhi, Bombay, Bangalore. There's much more to it. Also, you might be a Punjabi, Bengali or South Indian, but it makes you learn how to live , adjust and appreciate each other's culture .You learn values like unity, sharing, caring. 

5. A sense of ADVENTURE:

Now I don't know if you are the type of person who has an adrenaline rush, or a sense of adventure, while in a new city, but i certainly do! So many new faces, places, and we need to explore it all! I love this feeling.

So, yes, MOVE OUT Because the world is a book, and if you don't move out, you read only a page. :)

A few pictures of me, on a nice sunny day in Chandigarh. 

Because black and white never goes wrong!

The Goodbyes

We were travelling to Delhi in a volvo bus. J was leaving. She was shifting to Bombay, for an year. This was our last day together. The night before, we were at my place: we had sleepovers before. but, this one was different. Giggles were replaced by sighs, and silent tears. Both of us, were trying to be strong, and hiding the tears.
J : '' Please we won't get senti now!''
I: Hmm. okay.
J: ''Come lets write a post for our blog!''
I: Yeah, that would be good!
J: Lets tell them it will be OUR LAST POST TOGETHER.
I: .
and tears ran down our cheeks like a waterfall!

god really has his own ways, doesn't he?
a month back, we made this blog together, to share slices of our life, to give back to our friendship, to stay together always, and weeks later, we had to say goodbye. I can go on ranting, life isn't fair, and bla bla bla, but we chose to accept the change, move ahead and make each other proud!

J, shifted to Bombay! She got through Xaviers institute of communications! Yeah right, you heard that! Xaviers is the best college in India, for her course (PR). I , on the other hand, am awaiting my result for other entrances. So, basically, that means, that for an year, she's away. we wont be able to see each other for probably the entire year (these people screw you real bad! :p she's got no holidays AT ALL! )
Its my birthday tomorrow. (i am not liking how every now and then, this blog talks about birthdays and thank you's! :p )
i have no excitement at all. J's away, a couple of other friends have moved out, too. But, then J taught me, that LIFE IS TOUGH! YOU'VE GOT TO MANAGE STUFF!  So, manage, i will. I will put on a brave face, and smile, and well, move on. Of course its easier said than done.

Our blog, has become even more special now, because this is what will keep us connected. Be ready to explore our new cities, with us! :)

Also, to everyone out there, whose near one's left to go to another city or country. Be strong! Distance's are the test of relationships. If yours is true, you'l get through :)

Here are pictures of  a few of our last days together.

will be putting up more pictures , when i get them, They are still in J's cam.

Confessions of a WINDOW shopaholic!

Hello lovelies!
This is I! I'm writing this post, as the lazy bum J, is sleeping beside me. How do you guys like the new header!? :D We designed it together! Well, actually she did, most of it, but she's asleep, when we should be sitting together and writing this post. So yeah, WE designed it ;)

Both of us, are seeking admissions for our post graduation, and this time is pretty crucial! We are hoping to make it to Indian Institute of Mass Communication, Delhi. Keeping positive :)
But, there is every chance, that we might not end up together. That'll be bad, but that's how life is. Mr. 'Distance' will face a big challenge, to separate us two :D

Okay, so, I have to tell you, that we are ABSOLUTELY STRAIGHT, before you think otherwise! When, I gave my gifts to J, on her b'day, she got senti, and we both cried! :/ and another friend of hers, to lighten the mood, asked, '' Yaar, you sure you guys are straight!??'' Hehe.

Here are a few pictures, we clicked a while ago, at a friends birthday. The birthday was fun, but what happened after that was more fun! We went to some of the best stores, with a friend , S. She btw HATES dressing up! And we little monsters, took her to every possible store in the vicinity, and made her try on things she hated, the most-dresses, skirts, jewellery! Don't tell me, you haven't done it before? It is sooo fun! You don't always have to buy things right!? ;)  So, we chose dresses for the poor S, while she , frustrated, stood in the changing room, only for us! :D

Here, enjoy the pictures!


J wearing an all black outfit. Added a pop of colour with a scarf worn as a belt, and a pink cami.

Yeah, J is that short! :D

Trying on random things! 

That's the four of us. S, in the white dress. Clearly, we all look so excited here! S, was just faking it for the picture! J's face looks unclear, but never mind, she's asleep! 

Four of us, squeezed in the small try room.

If you haven't tried this, you gotta do this with your girls. for sure! If you have, you know exactly, how fun it is! So, go, do it again! Share your experiences with us, right here, below! ;)

Elated 21, thanks alot I

Wow! This is really the sweetest, the cutest surprise ever. Do not even talk about being lucky, cuz hell yes I'm the luckiest! Extremely lucky to have u Isha. Gifting gifts to friends is usual, but gifting something with soooo much heart and love, one must learn from u! Everything that you have done for me for my birthday has left me speechless, yes even after a week I'M SPEECHLESS. I just keep getting happy reading and telling people about this extremely special virtual surprise that I got.

Quite seriously I thought that I'm a grown up now, this year's 3rd  June would be just another day but well the 'explosive miss long legs' has other plans and it turns out to be 1 of the most memorable days of this year. I cannot thank u enough I, its a blessing to have a friend like u with whom I can be totally crazy, laugh my heart out and also be scared of! U have been a best friend all through, a mother at times to make me study, to make me have haldi doodh (turmeric milk) when i injurred my leg. I seriously sometimes think WHAT GOOD IN THE WORLD HAVE I DONE TO HAVE U (usually I forget the word good :P ). We are too similar in a few things, completely opposites in a few... Yet, we fit like a piece! ;)

Thank u sooo much! :* 

Now, for my dearest followers, Thank u sooo much for the adorable wishes, for loving I & J's friendship so much, for helping her make this surprise so perfect. It was such a great feeling to have wishes from across the world and the best feeling I ever get is to hear people say 'how true our friendship is' because yes this friendship means alot to us.

Celebration Peep : This wasn't the only thing she did for me, but alot more. I & A are my closest friends, they both along with all my other friends planned a surprise with my family at 12 at night. I was taken away from the house in the evening n brought back at about 12... 
and then
I see my whole room decorated with 21 air balloons, streamers and what not! 
I'm sure Isha must be seeming too cute to you all by now, but well let me bring out the devil inside her that ruined my newly blow-dried hair X-( 

I was excited and ecstatic like a maniac seeing all my friends with me at 12 at night at my place :-O OMG! The next picture says it all! 
I'm the boogy-man, your mother warned you about! 

So after I settled a bit, washed the beauty cream off my face... Isha slowly came up with all the gifts she prepared for me. Its amazing you know, how she listens to me so carefully at all times. I once would have told her that I want to buy a 'Garfield t-shirt' cuz I love how lazy and lousy he is like me... This Miss Magic, remembered and looked for 1, when she couldn't find she painted me one. Isn't it SUPERLY AMAZING! 
Its a garfield and I LOVE IT! :)
The second gift was extremely special, I & J have spent beautiful 2 years together. That little gift encapsulated  all the beautiful moments and memories we have had. It was a handmade bed-sheet. She drew all the special things we have been talking, doing and loving with each other. It wouldn't make sense to anyone else who reads but for us, WE HAVE LIVED THESE MOMENTS AND TREASURED. 

Isha, you totally rock! These gifts are tooo special to me, your friendship is a treasure. I promise to keep it safe forever! <3 
Thank you for everything!

Wish you all a great day!

A very very Happy Birthday J. May this be your best  birthday ever, and bring you success, and unconditional love and happiness!

Its been exact 2 years, since ive known you. We talked on the phone, even before we met. The prankster that you are, you played a prank on me. I didn't even know you, by then! I thought to myself, ''excuse me? who are you? am i the only one you got to play pranks on? I don't even know you!'' That was one day, and this is one! My day doesn't go, without thinking about you, at least once! 

You know what? when, id just joined the organization, and u were away, everyone talked about you so much! I was like, ''who IS this girl!?'' When i met you, i knew exactly why everyone talked about you. You were so lovable! It took us time, to realize , if we had something in common. We got to know each other, only a few months later. It was during the time of excess of work, and pressure, that we clicked! We used to work so much! calling in the morning, and waking the other person, and making lists of things to do, delivering stuff, OMG! we were such workaholics ya! 

That phase passed too. No matter, how successful or not, the event was, but it gave me the biggest present: YOU! 

I've a confession to make, im a rather strange person! I open up, only to a very few people. I build up a wall against me, and no one cares to climb it. But, you did! 
Such simple times and meetings, have turned so memorable because we were together. You made it for my bday especially from Delhi, love you for that! The activa and auto rides, highway, the baansals, Mohindra, the teasing sessions that never end, the sleepovers, the never ending silly talks, the secrets, the study sessions, the waking you up, every time for exams, the laughing together in co ordination, the looking at each other at the same time, we observed something about a third person, and talking it all through the eyes! Some people call us, tom and jerry, while some say, they miss their best friends when they see us, i feel so special to hear this! We share a bond that is just too special for words :)

You are SUCH A DRAMA J! Always lighting up the atmosphere with your pj's (i still don't like them btw!), your giggles, and your child like innocence!

You are CRAZYYYYYYYY! Admit it! You do silly things, act retarded most of the times, and speak gibberish: sakle, thabbad, are proof enough! ! But, that's what adds that spark in YOU! Thats what makes you different! :D (if it weren't ur bday, id have written, that's what makes you MAD! :p )

We've had to face problems too, but THAT ONE SPARKLING SMILE of yours, and everything seemed easy! You make me laugh, and smile from the inside! and I ABSOLUTELY FREAKING LOVE YOU FOR THAT! 

Okay, i may not say it that often, but Jap! You are one of the prettiest friends i have! The child like innocence, the ear to ear smile, only add to your beauty! MIRROR MIRROR ON THE WALL, WHO IS THE PRETTIEST OF 'EM ALL!?? ^_^

You can give the models, a run for their money, even in your jeans, and plain T! 
Umm, on second thoughts, no, i DIDN'T really mean that. You would fall on the ramp! You can't even walk straight :p Heha!

But, i have to appreciate your sense of style! :D

You are such  a bdaaaaaaaaaa!

But you play the BEST GUITAR EVER, because you don't play from the strings alone, you play from your heart! :)

The ccd shakes, and barista coffee's are nothing, when we get together and have thela chai in winters, not to forget the dip dip biscuits! :)

Wearing similar clothes, co incidently was alright, but co ordinating one's laugh with the other person! HOW THE HELL DO WE DO THAT!? :P You are such a copy cat jap, ADMIT IT! :p

 Confession time: We completely LOVE PATIALA! :) But yes we love to irritate you as well! 

Thank you for making this , not so perfect life, livable!  Wish u the BEST ALWAYSSS! :*

OH HELLO hotness! Because when we want to, even we can DRESS TO KILL! ;) 

i carry your heart with me, i carry it in
my heart.
i am never without it, anywhere
i go, you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling
 i fear no fate, for you are my fate,my sweet. i want
no world, for beautiful, you are my world,my true.
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you.

here is the deepest secret nobody knows.
here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide.
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart. i carry it in my heart!

Within you, I’ve found the perfect friend
With whom I can be real, and never pretend
You’ve always been someone unique from the rest
You hold a piece of me no other can possess



P.S.: Thank you so much everyone for dropping your wishes! :)

We present to you: THE NOT SO GIRLY BLOG!

Hello everyone! This is I, and i present to you, 'The not so girly blog'! Some of you already know me from : and the rest is history! 

This is a combined endeavor by me, and my best friend, J. We both have always been awed by some wonderful blogs , here. We felt a lot of the fashion blogs, rather almost all of them, were too girly for us. Heels, and make up, and lipstick, it all looks great on you guys, but it is not just our style! Then we thought, there must be more people like us, out there. Hence, we made a medium for our thoughts to flow. Our style is evolving, from complete tomboy's to not so girly. We both are awaiting our graduation result, and thinking of starting a new chapter in life.

I , is a tall girl, fond of theater, and finding unique thrifted stuff, from here and there.
J, is a crazy little girl, full of life, who enjoys going with the flow!

Yet, We are so similar, that hundred's of times, we say the exact same thing, at the same time!

Leaving you with a few pictures, for now.
P.S.: It's J's birthday this 3rd June!
J: My wish for you would be :

I hope that the days come easy and the moments pass slow,
And each road leads you where you want to go,
And if you're faced with a choice, and you have to choose,
I hope you choose the one that means the most to you.
And if one door opens to another door closed,
I hope you keep on walkin' till you find the window,
If it's cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile!

But more than anything, more than anything,
My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, that would be my wish for you! :)
