A smile filled day :):):):):):))

Hiya Fellas  J
What!!!! Yeah yeah I do have a stupid grin plastered across my face coz I just ate my all time favorite  meal, Butterchicken with tandooor roti….

 PAPI!!!! I heard that vegetarians…. Am sorry if that has offended you guys in any way but it’s my all time fav meal, nothere reason for this Smile is just got a cal from my school buddy after 14 years, ok don’t beat me up, I know I always have these drastic n many years of separation before I meet my friends…. Na it’s not like that it’s just we at times get so carried away or go our separate paths that r quite demanding…..niways I don’t wana get all nostalgic but it’ a gr8 day to reunite wid friends who have seen me as I am, or rather was…. A girl wid two ponys, chubby, dancing in school shows, loosing temper during debates, panicking when the homework was not done…the stupid excuses to avoid that " Homework not done" remark in my calendar….that fastest run n longest sprint to reach before the school bell…that wada-pav n donuts in the canteen….. ironing the uniform n polishing shoes …my daily ritual…. The hard time waking up lil sis for school n the lost temper till she was finally ready….the every single day giggling n the every single night wishing I’d grow up n go to college where there would be no homework n no uniform…. That preparation for examz… long sleepless nights n sleepy afternoons…. Chowing down one chocolate after nother without bothering bout calories….being spoilt rotten by my grandpa n aunts by giving me anything n everything I asked for…which mostly was chocolate or colours J….. the meaning of world was….grandpa chocolates….games…puzzles…stickers….colours n my best friends…..:P those who share their chocolates wid me, that was a definition of a true friend :P….

…..I can go on n on but u fellas get the picture don’t ya J …. So all u reading this post, relive all the happy memories when u were in school n go do something crazy today… something exciting…..something fun…. You treat all ur loved ones it’s time you treated urself to ur favorite childhood delight…have fun!

Lotsa Love
Priya J

Heartfelt Feelings

Hi All,
Was just lying on my bed n feeling bad for hurting a special person and in just 5 mins composed these lines... felt like sharing 'em wid you coz they're straight from the heart.

A careless moment, a thoughtless action, a hurtful word or simply a silent treatment.....leaves us scarred, our beliefs charred, hope shaken, faith broken...Don't act in a way that will bring a tear, avoid hurting the one you call " My Dear"

Happy B'day Baba

Today is my Dad's B'day. Hez been my strength n my rock of gibralter. He has turned me into a very strong, independent woman n yes a good cook as well coz I've learned how to cook from my Baba :)

I came home late yesterday n was a lil upset since both my owens were unavailable and I bake a cake for everyone's b'day in the family. Also Dad hates cream cakes so I also didn't have an option to get a pretty cake from a nearby cake shop :( I came home quite late n thought of making one in the microvewave ( I don't like to cook in a microwave) I looked around for eggs n was dismayed since there were non, eggless keliye bhi na condence milk tha aur na ni cola drink, worst of worst I didn't even have butter :( but as the saying goes, fortune favors the brave, inspite of Dad telling me to chill n just rest after a hectic day I just so badly waned to bake atleast a tiny dryfruit cake for him.

When dad thought me to cook he said always understand the ingredients, how they will react with eachother. A good cook is the one who can understand how a dish will taste by understand the ingredients, once u understand that u'll never need a cook book ; ) so I decided to put his advice into practice n baked a cake in the following manner...

Wet Mixture

  1. 2cups Milk
  2. 1+1/4rh cup regular Sugar
  3. 2 Tsp Suji aka Rawa
I mixed all the above ingrediets in a Non-stickpan n gently let it cook n reduce on a very low flame.
Then after I achieved a mild cream colour n a thick mixture I added 2Tsp Ghee n 2 Tsp regular cooking Oil + half tsp Mixed Fruit essence n again mixed it throughly till the Oil was compleatly mixed with the batter.

Dry Mixture
  1. 1 cup Maida
  2. 2 Pinch Soda Bicarb
  3. 2 Tbs Cocoa Powder
Shift all the above ingredients with a strainer n then add Cashew n Rasins as per taste.Grease a microwave proof container, preferably glass one.
Mix the Dry n Wet ingredients together n pour into the greased bowl. Here I did not wait for the wet mixture to cool down, it was almost 12 na :)

Grill + Convection for 12 mins n walla! Your cake is ready :)

The best part was Dad loved the cake, did I mention hez a food critic, totally! so he needs every dish to be just perfect n my happiness knew no bonds when he said It is one of my best cakes :D

The cross section looked superb, cake was moist n cocoa n nuts tasted lovely together, due to Suji it was a bit granular n tasted like there was Khoya in it ;)

Happy Birthday Baba, Love U!

Rimmel Lipstick

Hiya Folks,
Was hunting for a blush n came across this beauty n like always knew I had to have it, that's a different story I forgot all bout the blush n bought this n a mascara instead  :P he he.
It's a lovely lippie from Rimmel, No.250 with a very catchy name " Stare At Me"  :) well it dose live upto it's name when it comes to people staring at you but that's more coz of the lovely plummy pink colour of this beauty. It's a matt finish lippie n if you have clapped or dry lips don't go for this one coz it makes ur lips look all da more dry, yes it can be teamed up with a gloss or lip balm but then it's staying power will go down to 1-2 hrs which otherwise is 5-6 hrs for me after it fades leaving behind a nice pinkish tint on ur lips.

Rimmel Lippie No.250, Stare At Me

Personally have loved the colour n defines the lips beautifully, smooth texture n a very funky outer casing in bright pink.Has a fruity smell, dn't like it very much though. 
Priced at INR 415/- is a good buy 

Can be worn during da day time, not gaudy or loud for daily wear and will suit any skin tone. 

Me flaunting this beauty, hope u liked da colour

Am doing Shravani, so eat only once a day but trust me you really start valuing food, realize how much n what you carelessly put in ur mouth at other times n also miss all the cookies n pastries that otherwise you just dig into when u need a mood life :) phewwww missing my walnut brownine with a huge dollop of ice-cream :P

Love Always
Priyanka :D

Loreal Infalliible Lasting Perfecting Foundation

Hiya Folks,
I got loads of presents on my b'day n since am a makeup lover got beautiful hamper from my best buddy Shekhar that was full of Enrich Salon Gift vouchers, lippies, nail lacquers and Loreal Infalliible Lasting Perfecting Foundation. I've come across this foundation but since am an ardent believer in MAC I passed this very tempting buy n moved on but since was gifted this on my B'day I tried it out n Smiled :) It's a very light formulation that glides on beautifully n a very tiny pea size amount is requied for my entire face.

It claims to last for upto 16hrs and fights the signs of makeup meltdown....so me being me I tried it out on my hand n trust me on this it stayed put for next 20hrs .... that was when I decided to test it by applying it for a very crucial event....A dance show in which I was to participate which would expose this foundation to humidity, moisture and also long hrs in da waiting area :P and babes this stuff works.

The foundation lasted through this all and if you can spot me in the pic below, these pic was taken after the dance n the makeup still looked fresh after 7 hrs.

The Shade am using is Golden Beige, and priced at INR 1195/- is a good buy and will last for a very long time.

At the time of application make sure u've moisturised ur face n at the time of purchase make sure u've bought the shade closest to ur skin tone, a lighter shade will not make you look fair but will make ur makeup stand out, so go by ur instinct n pick the right shade. Happy Shopping...

Lotsa Love Always
Priyanka ;)
