First things first, I got honored with the ‘Very Inspiring Blogger Award’ by Jen @ The Haute Mommy Handbook. So very happy that she thought of me for awarding this. 🙂
Now I don’t think anyone missed having Life Instagram-ed posts around, but I missed writing these. 😀 The reason you are seeing less of these and Street Style posts is that my phone has broken down and I used to use my phone camera. Today, I really wanted to do this, so I used my mom’s phone, used Insta through laptop, basically went at great lengths to get my Instagram feed here. Finally, here you go from what you last saw in Life Instagram-ed #12:
1. What do you think this is? No guessing game, I can’t wait to tell you. It’s a fabric piece from Shanker Market, Connaught Place when I was roaming there with one of my best friends while she selected some fabric for her sister’s marriage and I drowned in the gorgeousness. If you are even a tiny bit into getting your clothes stitched, this market is a must visit place. Though let me warn you it’s not exactly cheap. Still, must visit!
2. This is from the Gurpurab celebrations in the area where I live. It’s a Sikh festival for the birth of the first Guru. Notice how coordinated everyone looks cleaning the road ahead for their Holy Book to arrive. It’s funny how faith can bind or break us. 🙂
3. From the same procession, you see the ‘Panj Pyare’. Honestly, I never knew about what they signify even though I have seen them/heard about them since childhood. Having used Google, here’s what they are: While I did know the literal translation ‘The 5 beloved ones’ (I know this much Punjabi), they represent the first five men who were initiated into the Khalsa (the emodiment of the Guru) in the Sikh ceremony of initiation by their 10th Guru.
3. The Holy Book of the Sikhs – Shri Guru Granth Sahib ji.
4. Aah, this. :’) This is that side head-gear that you usually see Muslim women wearing commonly known as ‘Passa’ or ‘Jhoomar’. I really wanted to have own since a long time. I think this one is so very pretty and is as not pricey either. I got this for INR 800. The only problem is that it is very heavy, so doesn’t stay put in my thin hair. I imagined myself looking beautiful when I wore this to a friend’s wedding recently, but it was coming off every 5 seconds due to my thin hair!!
If you live in Delhi and want to buy this, let me know and I’ll be happy to share the shop details.
5. When you have Nachos but no dip and no inclination to make any, you gather whichever vegetables are there in the kitchen and preferably chopped already. 🙂
6. This one is special. One of my good friends from the blogging world, Krupa from Ishtyle Awhile, sent these earrings as a gift when I won a fun quiz on her blog. This is the first time I have ever won in a contest like this, you know, and the personal note was a cherry on the cake!
7. This one is really, really important. If you are into baking at all, you should definitely try this recipe of Garlic Pull-Apart Rolls. Trust me, if I can do this, anyone can because I always face issues while baking in our microwave. I cannot stress on how badly I want you to try this recipe for it’s easy, tasty and satiates the craving for baking breads to some extent. Please do make this! I have made this thrice, the first time following the exact recipe, the second time replacing all-purpose flour (maida) with wheat flour and the third time adding paneer bhurji (cottage cheese dish) as a filling. So if you have anything to ask when you try the original recipe, feel free to ask. 🙂 Only thing to keep in mind is that you must have a convection mode in your microwave for any baking and if you use gas cook-top for baking, then I won’t be able to suggest the tweaks for this recipe as I don’t know about that. [Bhakti, this is the recipe we talked about].
Pheww! I typed this post twice as I lost the draft. 😀 That’s pretty much it. 🙂
Take care & keep smiling 🙂

😀 haha chalega…as long as the bigger branch is not too expensive… 😜
it’s the same 🙂 also, after buying this, i felt that the expensive pieces that i came across are very fine and delicate, so probably they won’t fall off from my hair like this one does 😛

Haha… I like delicate stuff too much…have to experiment more 😛
Hey, you never put up the jhoomar pic 😉 , would love to see it, you know. And will try out the recipe and let you know how it came out because the most I have done in baking is a mug cake 😛 .
Haha, I don’t have a proper picture, i’ll probably wear it with tied hair in a wedding that i am attending this month.Let’s see if I look like a joker even then or look demure and nice, haha! Will surely share both the pics sometime. 🙂
The recipe looks yummy. I would love to try it, only I dont know how to use my micorwave in the convention mode. The only use it see is re-heating takeaways (gosh, this is just so embarrasing). I might have to look up the manual (if I can even find it) to see how the pre-heat and the actual baking part works.
oh my God! its not embarrassing at all! we all do just that mostly 😀 but really if you want to bake, just call up your microwave’s customer care and check about convection related details 🙂 welcome here dear 🙂
