Feeling Hot Hot Hot

Firstly wishing all our Beautiful mothers A very Happy Mother’s day. Though I somewhere believe these special days are over rated and are business making rackets for Hallmark and Archies, making your mother feel special is never a bad idea. We all will agree to the fact that no matter how expensive our gift for her is or that dinner you’ve surprised her with, nothing is close to the amount of how much more mommy dearest deserves.

My sister decided to take mom and me to lunch at TGIF. As the planning was still on, we spoke to friends and we called them and their families too. By the end of it, we were 10 of us. It was one big happy jing bang with lots of food and drinks.

Fish Fingers

Portugues Fish

Chicken Thai Noodles

Chicken Penne Pasta

TGIF Review: I decided to reach early and make a reservation since they didn’t take my phone reservation.On trying to push the glass door, the hostess from inside scribbled on a notebook “12” indicating they open at 12pm. I looked at my phone, knocked on the glass door again, showed her my phone, the time stated it was “12:01” pm.She checked her watch and apologetically said they need 5 more mins.
Now TGIF came up with a new menu so we decided to give it a try. For appetizers We enjoyed the fish fingers with mashed potato and the dip, the onion rings which reminded me of “kaanda bhajia” from those vada pav stalls, the potato wedges were just right,and the salads were good too. For main course we relished the Portuguese blackened fish, Kung pao chicken, Some chicken Thai noodles and Newyork chicken. I doubt the penne pasta will be on my list the next time I go there. Anyway the desserts- Peanut Brownie and Mini Sundae were satisfactory, nothing over the top.
Ambiance was great,the place by itself makes you feel alive and vibrant. Service could be much better but the place was crowded so it was understandable.

What I wore: Knowing Mumbai heat this summer, (remember my last post?) And keeping in mind that after lunch I was directly going for the IPL match *was excited about it*, I wore a plain Black tank top and my comfy blue jeans. To make it a little dressy I accessorized with mommy’s heavy necklace.

In my next post, I will tell you about the IPL cricket match I attended:)

Let me know what did you do this mother’s day? Or how did you spend your time this weekend?

Yours Truly,

Just another Manic Monday

Hola!

As much as I hate Mondays (trust me I really do), there’s something that helps me get through it. It’s dressing up for work- oh and food off late, but let’s keep this post fashion oriented. I am not sure how the men will find this helpful, because they’ve got few options, especially in the corporate environment. But we women thankfully have a lot to choose from in the dressing department.

Though it may not help shaking off the grumpy/cranky/pissed off Monday mood totally, dressing up will actually make you feel a tad bit better. And this I say with experience. Here in Mumbai, with the current climate (heat + humidity), I find it easier to pick a dress/ skirt compared to trousers. If the dress is chosen correctly, it’s easy to make an impression, that of a serious-no-nonsense-smart-business-person. And no other colour does it better than black. Agreed black and the heat is a complete no- no, but the air conditioner at work does make it manageable.

Here is one of my black dresses that makes me feel all corporate and confident. It’s not one of those LBDs but is definitely a must have in any corporate woman’s wardrobe. A coat/blazer can conveniently be added onto it to give it a different look. Also those shoes are my staple shoes at work, they’re really comfortable. I haven’t accessorized much except for the black belt and a wrist watch. Make up is minimal with just an eye liner, some lipstick and nail paint (nail paint was really from the weekend before) 🙂 Black dress 3 Hope you liked the post, would love to hear from you. Would like to know how do you guys dress up to work on Manic Mondays, I’ll certainly give it a try.

Yours Truly,
