Chronograph Chronicles

Happy new year everyone! I hope you had a wonderful New Year celebration – regardless of whether it was a quiet one with family or binge drinking with friends. Although it looks like I have fallen off the face of the earth, I’ve really been reading up on a ton of your posts though not quite commenting or interacting because I’ve just been a bit unmotivated on the whole blogging front. However, I’d like to kick off this year with a post on something that gets a lot of love from me – a good watch.

December has really been a rough month for my bank account. I went on a ridiculous spending spree but the upside is that I have a lot of ‘New In’ posts that I can write for a few weeks!

I’ve had my eye on Fossil’s Abilene Chronograph since forever. I really felt the need for a new daily-wear watch because I am prone to very rapid boredom with routine. On Christmas day, we walked into a huge watch store that happened to have 25% off on Fossil, which in itself is a pretty rare phenomenon. I was almost about to bring Abilene home, but the SA conveniently threw in the fact that Michael Kors was also on offer. We had a look at the models they had on display, and I fell in love with the mini Blair watch. Now, I personally adore large dials. But I have an extremely tiny wrist, so I find that the mini size of Blair looks decently over-sized on me. Do I wish it were a shade larger? Yes. But am I delighted with my purchase? Oh a hundred per cent yes. I don’t think I’ll ever get over the rose gold watch trend and the stones on the dial just make it that much prettier.

Okay so this is all hunky-dory up till now. But there is a plot twist. You may recall that that I said I felt the need for a daily-wear watch. Although the Michael Kors is a beauty, I’m sure you’ll agree that it’s too pretty and a shade too bling-y to wear every day. Plus I don’t want the novelty to wear off. So I was in a dilemma. I was the proud owner of a gorgeous watch but my original problem still hadn’t gone away. The universe sent me a sign last week through a notification of an online sale that had Abilene at 40% off. The rest is history.

I now own 4 watches and a skeletal bank account. I think I am going to impose a ‘no shopping ban‘ on myself for three months. Do you think that will work? I’d love to know if you’ve done something along those lines because I’m genuinely worried for my health.

I hope you’re having a great day and I’ll be back soon with another ‘new in’ post!

Autumn Wardrobe & Vanity Essentials

Though Mumbai rarely gets cool, aside from during December, I was in Pune recently for Diwali and there you can definitely feel a chill in the air, especially during the evenings. I just need half a reason to throw on comfy knits and scarves, so I decided to do a post with a few of my autumn essentials. Hopefully I’ll get round to doing a part 2 in this because I can think of so many more things to feature (I’m very aware of the fact that I haven’t featured any boots or candles in this post!). But for now, here goes!

Sunday OOTD – Plaid and Blush

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was pretty nice, my friend and I went to Kanheri Caves, which is a monument site in Mumbai. It’s a great place to go for a day trip with friends and family. I’ll have a post up on that sometime this week hopefully. But for today, I’d just like to share my outfit of the day with you all.

June Favourites!

Hi everyone! Hope July is treating you well so far. I can’t believe 2016 is halfway gone! I thought that I would do a Favourites post today, because there are some things I’ve been loving lately and I find these posts fun to read as well, so here we go!

I’ll start off with non-beauty favourites. I recently saw Me Before You and I quite enjoyed it. It’s predictable and a chick-flick down to its very core, but that didn’t stop me from loving it. I like romantic movies in general, plus the fact that Sam Claflin is gorgeous doesn’t hurt. Emilia Clarke was fantastic in the movie, she is such a brilliant actress. I don’t watch Game of Thrones (yes, yes you have every right to be appalled!) so this was the first time I’d seen her in any movie or TV show.

Also, the background score of the movie is amazing. There’s ‘Not Today’ by Imagine Dragons which is so lovely. But ‘Unsteady’ is what I have playing on repeat. I do love violins and the entire orchestra playing in the background so this song is such a treat for me. Love it! Definitely give it a listen if you haven’t already. Go now. I’m serious. Wait, go after reading this post. Or play it in the background! Okay, let’s move on.
