✨Bubbles & Mush✨ “””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””” This one’s dedicated to my darling aunt, who introduced me to this song. The lyrics are so simple yet the sweetest I’ve come across! 😍 The melody too! And the chord progression is so simple! 😃💁🏻‍♀️ Do listen to the original if you haven’t already! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Also, reminder - taking requests all of this (remaining) year.

Toddy with a Twist 💫 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Hot Toddy’s really supposed to be Whiskey-based, but I’m an experimental foodie and hence, an experimental cook...and that extends to the drinks I’d make...the barely any that I know of. While people say Mumbai winters aren’t winters really, I tend to get and catch a cold easily. So, these winter specials help. Here’s my version of the #HotToddy if you’d like to try: 1 teaspoon honey 1 glass boiling hot water 30/60 ml whiskey (I sometimes replace it with rum) 3 whole cloves 1 cinnamon stick (I like 3) 1 slice lemon I sometimes like to go a step further and add in a few raisins too. 😍 Makes it sooo Christmassy! 🎄🥰 . . . . . . #recipe#recette#toddyrecipe#hottoddy#foodblogger#foodphotography#foodie#deeteafulexperiences#deeteafood#christmasfood#christmas#christmasmonth#christmasdrinks@bbcfood

✨❤️🎄Merrymas🎄❤️✨ This one’s especially special also because it is a story about the underdog. Rudolf is always laughed at, excluded...but in the end, Santa highlights the special power Rudolf holds because of what is really more a gift, than a shortcoming. To me, Rudolf’s story is a reminder - never let (what people point as) your shortcomings to hold you down. Learn to use them to your advantage and steer things around for yourself. ✨❤️ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #ChristmasTrivia - 1. Did you know that Yule was a Pagan midwinter festival (Norse mythology) before it got tied up with Christmas? 2. The custom of putting up a Christmas tree originated in Germany 3. The Mistletoe was originally an important part of Celtic and Norse religion. While there are theories, no one knows exactly how the tradition of kissing started. 4. Thomas Edison was the one to have put up the first Christmas display made from electric lights, to advertise his light bulbs. 5. Rudolf appears in DC Comics too! Then known as National Periodical Publications, they published a 13-part annual series Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (1950-1962). ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Taking requests, all of this (remaining) year. And if it goes well, maybe the next too! 🙂 _________________________________________________ Covering here: Rudolf the Red-nosed Reindeer by Robert L.

My bomb-bae🔥 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I once responded to a ‘do you love the city’ with a ‘yes and no’. I sometimes feel like I’d do better elsewhere. I sometimes feel out of place. But that is, I realise, due to human issues. Let’s remove us all...the place by itself, yes, I LOVE it here! Early morning Mumbai is the best!! I both, crave and struggle to switch to becoming an early riser, just to go out for a run every morning at say, 4-5 am - to places like Marine Drive. There’s nothing more beautiful that I’ve experienced in the city. ❤️ . . . . . . #bombay#mumbai#bombayarchitecture#colours#aesthete#philocaly#deeteafulexperiences#deeteaful#dubaiblogger#mumbaiblogger#travelblogger#travelphotography#travel@mumbai_uncensored@maharashtratourism@incredibleindia

[I give up 🤷🏻‍♀️. Instagram is ruining the quality of this video (audio actually...solution, anyone?). Tried to upload several times and deleted. Sometimes, I should just embrace imperfections and accept that tech can let us down. Maybe I should practice harder and play live. Duck tech 😡(autocorrect changes the f word to duck. 🤪 Naice!). Hail human experience! 😍] ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ✨❤️Something ‘bout you❤️✨ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I’ve a girl crush on Ariana Grande. Something soooo sexy about her...risquée even. Yet, not cheap. That dancing-on-the-fine-line-yet-never-tripping-onto-the-other-side is pure art. And I’ve always had a strong love for women who can pull off sexy af without being cheap. Ariana pulls it off so smoothly!!! But fashion as her forte aside, I really first fell in love with her for her art - her voice, range, what she does with it and her stage presence! This one’s for you, @arianagrande ✨ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Taking requests, like I earlier mentioned, all of this (remaining) year.

Guys!!!! Bajaao just sent me this real awesome ukulele, and I just HAD to share this with y’all! ❤️ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I know I talk too much but -> keep swiping left -> there’s a micro demo + comparison with my Ashton ukulele on how it sounds 😍 ........................................................ Those of you starting out, I’d personally recommend a #sopranoukulele. But, follow your instinct, the #concertukulele might just be for you! ❤️ For the curious cats, this one’s the Vault UK-190 Rosetta Koa Concert Ukulele (link in bio - go check it out!) 😍 .......................................................... I mentioned @anandbuggy, when I was talking about the #djembe. Go check him out! 😎 My Ashton ukulele (if that interests you) is also from Bajaao. _____________________________________ From back in 2007 (I think...not sure, memory’s a b#%^h!), when my band and I started jamming at the Bajaao studio, to ordering for instruments (and their service is seamless!) and all the music paraphernalia...to now, as a musician, customer and blogger, I love you guys! Team @bajaao, y’all are awesome! 👊🏼😎 _____________________________________ #cover coming up next! 😁 . . . #deeteafulxbajaao#musicbajaao#ukegirl#girlandukulele#musicienne#musician#chanteuse#bloggergirl#dubaiblogger#mumbaiblogger

Checks, mate! 🔥 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Always a fan of chequered trousers 😍 (my mum introduced them to me. I think I was around 10 when she designed my first pair of chequered trousers❤️). Found a well-tailored pair after long, about 6 months back, and I’m in love again, ever since! . . . . . . . . #blackandwhite#bnw#monochrome#blackwhiteandgrey#pleasecorporate#corporatefashion#workwear#fashionatwork#deeteafulstyle#deeteafulfashionfind#fashionblogger#dubaiblogger#mumbaiblogger#bloggergirl

Of course I’m feeeeeeelin’ soo goood!✨❤️ Birthday week has begun! 😃 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Somehow, it doesn’t feel strange/upsetting to turn a year older. Especially entering a new decade. Scary it is, but in a way exciting too. Sometimes, vulnerability is a good thing, I guess. I do still fret about uncertainty. But post healing completely from depression, I subconsciously slip into a nothing-to-lose mind frame, as a response to fretting too much. I do not wish depression upon anyone, but I really do think it did me good. It was like a cleansing period - I needed to face my biggest fears, worries, failures - to really realise, they were only amplified by outside opinions and some distorted views of my own. I learnt the hard way, but I finally learnt...you may not be perfect in the eyes of the world, but you are perfectly perfect for yourself. And that is enough. After all, we spend the most amount of time with ourselves. 😊 For those of you hurting, give yourself time. Someone told me once - “give up on anything and anyone, but never on yourself. Keep giving yourself chances. Only if you can forgive and love yourself, will you be able to forgive and love the world.” So give yourself many chances and time to heal - one year, two, three...as long as it takes. Acceptance of the present is key. Everything will fall in place! ❤️ Sure the world is full of nasty, immature people who don’t know how to talk/behave, but it is just as filled with kind, gentle souls...who will understand you, and even if they didn’t, they wouldn’t give you a tough time for who you are. Recognise these gems. Surround yourself with them. Don’t waste your time on people who are full of poop. 🤦🏻‍♀️😂 I will ALWAYS be grateful for those in my life, who stuck through a phase where most would only stand and judge me, cut down communication, but be around for fodder for gossip. I recognise the genuine ones, and LOVE y’all for your love. 🙃✨ Thank you! 🙏 _________________________________________________ Covering here: Feeling Good by Muse _________________________________________________ #Ashton Uke from @bajaao Uke strap from @ruasindia Uke strap stick-on clip from @amazondotin
