Not Of The Same Feather

We all have groups in colleges - a mix of people who sit together, eat together, go to movies together and so on and so forth. People of a group might be poles apart in nature, but something brings them together: teacher jokes, food, music, love for a band, trips, conversations and an aloofness or even enmity against other groups. 

When two groups meet, things might not go smoothly. They might not be birds of the same feather. They might not get each other's jokes. They might not do a certain this in a certain that way. They might not talk, they might not agree to disagree.

Mixing two prints is like making two college groups sit together for a day. Everything is unexpected. It's tricky, in fact one of the riskiest trend for all good reasons.

The basics tell you that if one print is bold, the other needs to be submissive and that you need to choose a colour family and stick to it. I have ignored both here. Not very proud to do that, but I can say it is interesting to mix prints.

Have you tried mixing prints yet?

Summer In A Skirt

In FRIENDS, when Joey has a girl flatmate named Janine, he discovers a whole new world of things, beautiful things if you ask me. Once Janine makes him smell potpourri and Joey says something like, "Wow, this is like the whole summer in a bowl."

I feel the same about this skirt gifted by my friends in office(thank you again ladies!). It looks like summer and it feels like summer. And it keeps its shape, doesn't shift.

Skirts aside, how you guys doing?

Jabong.com Review

I might not be one of those people who are constantly on smartphones (don't have a smartphone in the first place, but that's a different story, right?) or are updating their statuses every five hours. I might also not be the one who tweets before she eats. So, I might as well be an isolated pariah in a generation that uses more technology than ever.

However, every now and then, I give in to one thing that very much belongs to the smartphone generation: online shopping. From online shopping, the first name that pops in my head these days is Jabong.com. I am mostly glued to this site on weekends. Here are a few reasons why:

1. Do not know if it stands true for every location, but I get everything I order in 2-3 days after ordering.

2. Their exchange/return policy has never disappointed me.

3. They have a huge list of brands to choose from. This, however can be quite a bummer to a new user as the products never seem to end and and remembering what you liked in the first minute and the second and the henceforth might be tricky. However, once you filter the brands/clothes/shoes/bags... that you are looking for, you will be good.

Here are a few things that I recently bought from Jabong.com. So, have you ever shopped from Jabong?

Giggles Contest: Win Some Accessories!

What is coffee without some cream? Or a cake without an icing? Well, most of us know the difference. When we dress up, we often do not pay enough attention to a few things, accessories for example. Aren't they the icing on the cake?

These are the lines from one of the initial posts I had written for the blog. I still believe accessories add so much to an outfit. I had never really explored online shopping for accessories though.  So when I got these pretty neckpieces from Giggles, it was a new experience for me. The items were well packed and the neckpieces looked exactly how they looked on the website. 

Also, if you go through Giggles’ website, you would realize how affordable their products are.  And they can be yours now! Just participate in this simple contest and you stand a chance to win Giggles voucher worth Rs 1000. All you have to do is:

1. Like Giggles’ Facebook page.
2. Like Jenny’s Bicycle’s Facebook page.
3. Let us know in the comments section about 2 accessories that you liked the most on Giggles’ website and why.

Days You Laugh

Beauty to me is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick ass red lipstick.
- Gwyneth Paltrow

Yeah, that lipstick is new. My friends in office gave it to me so that I can take the final plunge because you see it is one thing to look at a girl with scarlet lips, be amazed or whatever and it is completely different to wear a red lipstick and look at yourself without suspicion. Do I look like I have been bitten? Is it too much? Will everyone stare at me?

After a month of contemplation, I wore it. And though I don't even look half of what I would want to look, I think I will wear the colour again. Maybe now I know what a red lipstick does to you, on days that you don't give a damn and days you do, on days you laugh with your friends or on days you don't. On days you sing aloud and on days you could use a drink.

Its never too much. And of course they will look at you. 

Hope you guys are making the most of sale season. Please like my Facebook page if you like reading the blog.

Pretty Evenings

Most writers write in mornings. Even the ones with the weirdest of routines and the worst of deadlines swear by the influence of mornings on their prose and poetry.

A few nights back I was watching this random Jennifer Lawrence movie in which her friend tells her that the place they live in is very quiet early morning. When Lawrence asks what does he do so early, he says, "I write stuff. In the morning, it feels like everything is new. Everyone is sleeping. It is like the best ideas are not taken yet."

Morning is indeed the time to write. But for me, evenings are prettier. The beauty of dusk, wrapped in greys and nostalgia is something I look forward to during the weekends. Yes, office life has robbed us off our evenings.

There is this one moment when it is almost dark but not quite and though you can see the lights in the city, near and far if you are on a rooftop or a mountain, you cannot hear the lights singing in your ears till its almost dark. That moment of transition from evening to night feels like a time of happiness for me.

More on mornings and evenings some other day...You guys have a great weekend!
