Confessions Of A Newly-Wed: On Representing Another Brand

FINALLY the time has arrived. After almost a year, it is time to go back home at last! [Insert: confusion as to whether it is Mumbai or Dubai should I now call ‘home’. The husband once cutely pointed out how my ‘home’ should be with him -wherever he is, and not anywhere else and I’m pretty much still aww-ing over that.] Without divulging too many details (its a planned surprise), let me just tell you, that the time is very soon, and I can’t contain the excitement over meeting […]

Hello dear readers, I’m back on the blog today after a long hiatus, with a determination to hit the publish button before I log off again. So many posts lie incomplete as drafts, that it saddens me how many wonderful experiences I still have to share, just not enough time and patience to shape a post. Soon after the last update, I landed a job in the new land – that of a content writer, and that partly explains why I’m vary of writing and updating my blog in […]

Confessions of a Newly Wed : From Fiancee to Wife

One of the first things that came to my mind while I began to write this post is : it has been over three months since the wedding. Can I still call myself a ‘newly wed’? For how long can one go on being called that, without the ‘newly’ word being removed and then being simply called as ‘wed’. I’d love to know your thoughts, so don’t forget to leave them in the comments below. Now as you know, it has been over three months now (a hundred days […]

Confessions of a Newly Wed : 10 Things You Must Remember For Your Honeymoon

The big Indian wedding is done with, and the husband (still feels strange to call him that) & I are back from a blissful honeymoon. You’d wonder why my first post after marriage is not about marriage itself, but I feel this is an experience every bride must feel in her own unique way, without being meddled with others’ ideas of a perfect day. And if you’re expecting sex advice in this post, look elsewhere – ‘cz a lady won’t kiss and tell (or maybe just a little bit!)So […]

Confessions of a Bride-to-be : The Sister’s Letter

Having grown up in the same family, and spent 22 years of our lives together, we sisters share a special bond. Since we’ve shared everything from clothes to crushes, one of us getting married and moving away was never going to be easy.

Confessions of a Bride-to-be : On Marrying Each Other’s Flaws

‘When you think somebody is perfect for you, it is infatuation.When you are aware of the other’s flaws, and it still doesn’t matter – its love!’ I read this quote over the internet recently, and all notions that I had of me falling in ‘love’ at first sight went down the drain. I thought he was perfect for me from the word ‘go’, as he ticked all the qualities on my list for Mr. Right. Kind, friendly, thoughtful, intuitive and intelligent – I always wondered what I had done […]

D-day closes in and days are flying faster than ever before. Not that I’m complaining – I can’t wait for the big day.
