So, it was the Christmas weekend. A three day festive vacation. Every working personnel’s sweetest dream. This idea struck me as I was getting ready to leave from office. 5 minutes later, the following list was born.
Warning 1: Long Post.
Warning 2: Too many photographs!! 😛
(And yeah, there’s this default thing that’s always been there whenever I take up something exciting like this – Wear my current favorite perfume.)
I shared this bucket list idea with my sibling and a cousin(who is as good as my sibling too!); both offered to help. This is how it all went.
Well, we did try to. Were short of two pairs of wings though. That’s me and my sibling..
02. HUG/ BE HUGGED
I absolutely LOVE hugs. And luckily that’s one thing I am glad I get plenty of!! Cousins, Little cousins, My grand-mom’s she-dog! Mahn! Life surely feels better after a hug!
3. LET GO
Perhaps the most difficult one of the list. Did try it, though..
04. HAVE MY FAVORITE PIZZA/ PASTA
We three had this all for lunch. Candies is one hell of an amazing place located in Bandra. I simply love the rustic ambience; the food is equally amazing. Had our usual pasta from the salad bar(left). However, we did try two new edibles. The chicken Lasagne(centre), and the Chicken Quiche(right). It was delicious!!
05. GO TO A CHURCH
I completed my education from a missionary school. So the Christian culture is something I have always been familiar with. We went to the Mount Mary Church on the Christmas morning. Loved the decor and the splendor. It was a different and pleasing experience altogether!
06. FEEL THE WIND IN MY HAIR
Somehow, this always makes its way onto every list I ever make!! I am a total fan of the gentle caresses the wind offers. Me and my cousin had some heart-to-heart conversations at Carter’s in the eve. Then we both settled for listening to some songs..
07. WATCH A MOVIE
Yes, we did. Saw STAR WARS – THE FORCE AWAKENS. Me n sis took a liking to the villain though 😛
08. CRY AND BE CLEANSED
Yeah, it happened as well. Had to say a Goodbye which was irrationally hard. The worst part was that I wasn’t able to effectively express what was in my heart – A situation I often find myself in. Too often do words remain unsaid.. Once can do nothing but bury them alive in their grave. Wonder why is it so hard to let go.. But then, toxic people need to be removed if you are to retain your peace and self respect.
09. MAKE AN X-MAS CARD. CATCH UP
Sadly, couldn’t do either of it. Hoping to catch up with the-best-man-at-my-wedding soon!
10. WRITE SOMETHING
This was written on a whim. Just another idea I got during my bath-time. I totally detest physical abuse of any kind, and my heart goes out to everyone who battles this monster. This is my way of creating awareness and doing my part to help the society combat this human behavioral problem. The following is the first draft. Shall post the poem soon.
11. WEAR MY SNEAKERS FOR A DAY
Okay, I shall tell u a secret. I think I am mildly claustrophobic.. Something about closed shoes gives me the jitters. To get over this, I had this sneakers thing jotted down. And Boy! Did I fucking own it! Lasted the entire day, like a boss!!
12. GET A TEMPORARY TATTOO
Alas! Didn’t happen. Mebbe the next time. Surely the next time.
13. IMPROVE/RUIN MY HIGHLIGHTS
Okay, so this was one You-Only-Live-Once moment. Was merely gonna recolor my highlights, but ended up doing the edges in a never-before-attempted way!! Improved/Ruined?? You decide!
14. SEE THE COPPERY TINGE FOR MYSELF
“Doesn’t the Copper Chick deserve to see??
the thing that makes her so Coppery!!” 😛
15. HAVE ICE CREAM
Doesn’t matter if its winter and its freezing. Ice cream toh banta hai (Ice-Cream is a must) 🙂
16. GET A RED LIPSTICK. BE THE DIVA. BE THE JERK.
I think I am loving the red on me.. 🙂
17. ADD ANOTHER CHARM TO MY CHARM BRACELET
18. BUY AMAZING GIFTS FOR MY TWO LOVELIES
19. GET CANDIES FOR MY TWO LITTLE LOVELIES
Bcoz Hey! Any reason is good enough to spoil my angels silly!!
20. FEEL WARM AND FUZZY FROM WITHIN
This sweatshirt is my favorite. Its like being wrapped up in sheer comfort. Feels like a never-ending hug. Totally love it!
21.SLEEP IN. FOR LATE.
22. PAINT MY NAILS
Nope, don’t have a pic to show; barely managed to keep it on for half an hour. I usually prefer the natural color of my nails.
23. RASTA(street)SHOP/ SHOP!!
Pretty much self explanatory..
So Brightey Bright, I had to look away.. 😛
P.S: That is a painting of the iconic Indian actress Madhubala.
Told you this post was gonna be long.. 😛
