Remembering Pandharpur


BISMILLAH HIR RAHMAN NIR RAHEEM




When life becomes hectic and we seldom get time for ourself, everything seems to be frustrating. At such times I always think about the happy times. And this year my happy time started with the village trip. I love villages, ever since I was a kid I was very excited about villages and the villagers. I love their simple lifestyle, their innocency and everything about them. This trip to my friend's friend village will always be in my memories.

As I had previously said I am a bangle crazy person, I always wear these bangles whenever sweet memories of my trip comes to me. The pics previously of my bangles were not clear as those were clicked in moving car. This above pic is much clearer and I love them. This world is so beautiful isn't it? These bangles aren't costly at all. These set of bangles hardly cost me around Rs. 10/-, yet they look soooo lovely. Its not necessary that only expensive thing look beautiful. and I think this pic can prove it.




Well this jhoomer or actually I should say keychain, I bought it from bhimashankar. We were getting late and our driver had already warned us to reach the car as soon as possible. However when girls are around one can expect shopping and more shopping. I and tupi were hell bent on purchasing this jhoomer but my friend samidha was against it. She is like that only, always arguing and troubling me. Always doing exactly opposite of what I want to do. But this time even the driver dada was with her. The moment we stopped near any shop they would start scolding and we had to run away from them. Anyhow at one place we escaped their eyes and bought this jhoomer. We were on cloud seven at that time. Choti choti khushiyan kabhi kabhi bahot badi ho jaati hai. Like small kids we were showing this to any and everyone we met on way. I've hunged it in my bedroom and it looks very beautiful tingling there.

My Childhood Purses


BISMILLAH HIR RAHMAN NIR RAHIM



Yesterday while cleaning up my house, I laid my hands on these two purses. It bought back my childhood memories. I was so thrilled to see them back again. These two were my fav purses when I was a lill kid. The major thing is that my mom had still kept them safely. While growing up I had completely forgotten about them. My heart is filled with joy today. Both these purses were gifted to us by our dad. The above one is mine and the one below is my sis's. However she was quiet small so ultimately it was me who used both of them...
