And the award goes to......

Today, on the pre- Diwali weekend, when the air is filled with lights, gifts and giving….I, felt that it was the best day to acknowledge some Vanilla people for the commendable work they have done.
Khush bestowed upon me A Versatile Blogger Award, Thank you so much dear for this honor and appreciation. It indeed keeps me going…..

Here am I giving this award to....................................

1.    Peevee: Woaa…chocolate obsessed girl! With her honest, versatile posts, which make you laugh, touch your heart and ponder over many a things in a girl’s life….Here you go Priyanka!! I just got to know ur name as I linked you here!! gosh! how silly can this be!!:p
2.   Ayushi with her gorgeous blog “ Little Moments of Bliss”. She shares with us her fictional stories and some real truths of her life. And I always look forward for the Awe- Some pictures she gets hold of to express what’s right there in her heart! Where do you get them from Ayu??
3.    Sub: I just happened to visit his blog at and well it indeed had “khojed” a lot of information from centuries beyond to the present era! Now a proud daddy of a pretty girl, he continues his tryst with life and with writing on “Evolving Daddy”..Way to go Sub!!......
4.    Kunal: A fellow blogger and a sweet friend. Yes! he deserves this award rightly so, like many others. He doesn’t speak much, yet he does. In moments of solitude I wonder what he thinks, or simply goes blank? His posts offer readers not only his musings, but some beautiful insights into life!...Kunal…you are Not a devil…high time you change the name of your blog:p!!
5.   Next, we have a ball full of magic and a lot more…and she is none other than Crystal….with her psychedelic, enigmatic, enchanting blog, she delves into the world of philosophy, romance, love, fiction, poetry, photography and many more things. You are the next Kahlil Gibran for me girl! I tell you! It’s easy to write essays, but its tough to say a lot more in words so few….and that’s Crystal for me and you!!.....
6.    Ryan: He presents a world clicked through eyes and spoken through his heart and mind. You got to check this blog to feel what I say. Thank You Ry for your insightful posts. Hope you are doing well my friend?!
7.   I still dunno the name of this girl who has her blog named as ‘Bits & Pieces” but yes, I have gone through her beautiful posts and she sure deserves this award! Many many congratulations to you!
8.    Then there is Edwin with his funny, humorous cartoons taken right from everyday events, and this very fact makes his drawings even more relatable and interesting!
9.    And then we have Niki, with her beautiful blog on jewellery, everything silver, sparkly and gorgeous. From designing bracelets, earrings, neck pieces, and her fab photography which compliments her posts well.. Your Art lures me Niki;)

Now that the awards have been given, there is a tradition which this award comes with…

1) Thank the blogger who awarded you and link back to them.
2) Share 7 things about yourself.
3) Pass the award along to 15 other newly discovered blogs.

As you can see I gave away the award only to 9 Vanilla People. That is coz they rightly deserved this one! Worry not, those of my other friends who haven’t got! I still have one award in my kitty, to give away….;)And now about sharing 7 THINGS ABOUT ME!!hmm…
1.     I collect rose petals and dry them whenever I’m gifted flowers or I buy them for myself. I also collect pretty marriage invitation cards and keep them with me. In addition to this I love collecting pretty and smart paper bags!
2.    I’m a huge fan of artistic Indian ethnic work, may it be block printing, or a pretty  Jaipuri bedsheet or Lucknawi kurtas or well…in short I love everything ( almost) INDIAN!!;)
3.    I really want to learn baking breads, croissants, and beautiful, lip smacking pastries. I’m now, if I can say so an expert at baking cakes. But I want to learn how to ice them too;)
4.   I appreciate guys who can cook, and more so cool WELL;) haha.!! Coz well not only is it sensual to see a good looking hubby cook for you in the kitchen, but we girls deserve men who do cook for us as well!! Right?;)
5.    I want to learn some traditional recipes and knitting from my grandmothers to make them and share it with my grandchildren (i.e. if I live that long enough)…The tradition should keep on going right…
6.   I don’t like the way kids are growing these days ( I won’t apologize if I sound like an old lady). It’s true, that with every younger generation I see, all I get is shock! Indeed in future having pets might be a better idea than having kids!! As for me!! I’ll have both;)
7.   I love jewellery and jewellery and jewellery. I end up having everything of almost every color, so I’m always well coordinated;)

Phew….that was a lot!! So congratulations to the winners and to my Bloggy friends as well..Its festive season, and all one should have is a smile on a face and glitter in the eyes!

Stay Blessed
