Healthy in meals

Of lately my husband and I have been out for meals too often.  It comes with having large families and friends who love having you over and a penchant for trying out new restaurants.  No complaints however, the meals have been amazing but when it comes to being at home, I like to have salads and a few greens plus a couple of fruits occasionally.

My mother makes the best kind of salads. Today’s was pretty simple however with chopped up cucumber, zucchini, carrots, tomatoes and lettuce.  No sauces as dressing. Instead she adds lime, salt and pepper.  It’s actually pretty good and quite tasty.

As an early and light dinner I chopped up a red and green apple and tossed them slices together with some pepper to taste.

Bon appetite! Xoxo

A little bit of blue

When it comes to an official press conference,  I need to dress the part of a journalist. Apart from having a chilled out morning and afternoon, I had to attend a press conference during the evening so here’s a lool at what I wore.

I’ve got on a multiple print knee-length kurta with light pink and navy blue motifs. I’ve paired it with a navy blue shawl with a few rhinestones and navy blue leggings.  All three were purchased from Westside, India.

I’ve kept my footwear simple and comfortable because there is plenty of walking to do when I’m on an assignment.  I need to talk with the people hosting and of course chat with other media personnel too. So these are my go to sandals in baby pink I received from Malaysia.

What handbag I carry with me is very important because not only do I need the essentials but I’ve also got to add in my trusted notebook to fit inside.  So I picked out my Jessica Simpson handbag to do the needful. 
Much love! Xoxo

On a day at home

image

This is me on a day at home. As a freelance journalist I get to pick my working hours and assignments for the most part. So on days I don’t feel like going to work, I enjoy sitting at home with a mug of iced tea and a good book in my hands.

I’ve just begun to read What’s New, Pussycat by Alexandra Potter.  I’ve read two books of hers previously which were good enough to prompt me to make another purchase.  This one is centered on the life of Delilah whose boyfriend has just proposed.  Unlike a normal person who would be ecstatic and overjoyed,  Delilah does nothing of the sort. Instead,  she packs her belongings and heads to London in search of greener pastures.  Pfft! Sordid she is!  In search for a new life and new man, she happens to meet TWO! Everything seems perfect but perfection only leads to boredom in my books. Delilah has everything she’s ever wanted – a glamorous life and a fabulous new home. She’s a whole new self too. Well ain’t that the problem now…. I’m going to find out!

Have a good day everyone!  Xoxo

For hair that shines….

I’m not one to use a lot of nonsense products on my hair apart from shampoo and conditioner. However, I happened to find the Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine Moroccan Sleek Oil Treatment a super-dee-duper product indeed!

I absolutely love the fact that it has Moroccan argan oil in it. Surprisingly there isn’t any oily residue once used. A drop or two is all you really need and the formula is instantly absorbed and conditions the hair. I use it after a shower but instructions note it can be used in the shower as a conditioner or on dry hair to add shine and tame frizz. When using it on wet hair, it adds softness. I have to admit that my hair does remain smooth and sleek for a good 2-3 days! Many others have mentioned the fragrance being overbearing but I happen to love it 🙂 🙂

Great buy indeed! I’d definitely repurchase it 🙂
