My Shimla Trip - Day 3 and 4

Continuing my post from my last 'all-girls-hangout-trip' !  

On third day in Shimla, we took our booked cab and went for a city tour. It was good cold and we enjoyed our ride while sightseeing the beautiful places, covered in pine trees and scenic mountains with little houses all over it. We went to a adventure place and did go-karting (super-duper fun!), had awesome food, nibbled a lot, gossiped, laughed and enjoyed ourselves a lot :-)

Day fourth, we went in exploring a local wildlife sanctuary and a place called Naldehra. That was supposedly a golf place. We didn't took the local horse ride, but took a walk instead. It was a nice, green, hilly, chilly place. We had lots of tea and coffee in between of course ;-)

After this, with an overnight bus journey we were back to New Delhi.

Girls should definitely have such experience once. Chucking all responsibility and fear. Having all girls fun and exploring new places, people and food. There's a different kind of bonding one gets into and the fun is incomparable. You learn a lot, outta the comfort zone and come out with a different perspective than before :-)

 






A post of food remains from this trip, that I shall post next.

Meanwhile wishing you all a very great new year ahead. <3

Appple Jam !!

Continuing from previous post, here's the 'APPLE JAM':


It is sweet but with hints of spice (black pepper)


 



 

All it has is sugar and lemon juice to preserve. Black pepper from my side (Indian touch!).
Do not forget to try!

Kiwi Jam :-)

I'm back from a girl's trip out to Shimla and it was super fun!

This 1st post of November goes to some easy recipes I tried out of the fruits I bought from Shimla.

I had got Kiwis and Golden Apples that's a local fruit for there but not my place, so had got plenty of it but it got over-ripen and squishy till I reached home. Some we had raw, rest I turned into jams. These are simply made by adding sugar and lemon juice to fruits.


 Presenting 1st of the two jams:   KIWI JAM

It was easy and absolutely delicious. YUM!





  Stay tuned for apple jam! Do leave comments :-)

September Birthday Bash !!

September ended and so did my special day! 

28th was my birthday and I had a beautiful day out! A post friends party is pending though; that I have planned to be a vintage tea party! Lets see how it goes.
Following are the things I loved on 28th!

First my Red dress!


My self-made red dress (will have a full post later) 
and an awesome lunch out with my dearest buddy.


Some per-ordered novels! Gift to myself from Flipkart. Total 9 new novels! cool


Essentials for my wildlife trips and rides.
A gifted unisex jacket that I wanted since long and a shopped men's tee for utility purpose.


A beautiful gifted ceramic pot which I painted of birds! Isn't looking wow! It goes on my book shelf.


A personalized card and carnations I loved. I'm used to these traditional gifts <3


A pretty earring from my friend and a b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l sketch of me by my nephew!! Ohhh WOW


An overnight made fabric clutch to match my dress and some random things I shopped.

 AND
A family evening full of good food, laughter, late night gossips, get-together and the feeling of being loved and blessed by my dear ones ! Some folks were missed too :(


What do I need more?


Life has been good since my last left job and birthday! Have learned a lot, traveled & explored, experienced new things, met new people, extended hobbies, solidified craft work, serious-ed photography work, lazed a lot, worked too and overall had a good time :-)

Love
Tanuja

'Curtains' - Flight of Pigeons

 



A flight of pigeons is a novel by Ruskin Bond. Taking inspiration from the thought I made my room curtains. As they open to a balcony, I selected a light shade curtain for the natural light to come in & with the translucency played.

 

Taking packing material cloth (so that they don't fray) I made birds and painted them black for more opacity & simply stitched them at back.

Now both ways they look great!
 
 

I love !

Bohème Bag !!


Bohème is about believing in today. Bohème is about a carefree life, nontraditional way of thinking, a vagabond, an artist.
Some part of 'me' is this.

Sharing my
Bohèmian Bag, ofcourse made by me.
A good canvas fabric, a super good color, some bright fabric colors;
A comfy size and strap, pockets as per wish, style I love and voila!!

My OWL mobile cover

The 
OWL
mobile cover


I fancy all those mobile covers that people buy and when I can D-I-Y it, then WHY NOT!
All I required was a glass case and a craft to put into the back. 

Here I painted a Spotted Owl (I love Owls in all forms). Didn't came up as neat as expected but still I love it <3
