Stylish Blogger Award... I accept with a big SMILE:)

This post is long overdue. My dear friend Gagan @ P&P passed this award to me while I was away on my India vacation. All this while I never got a chance to actually claim it. Finally! Accepting this award is a big honor and a huge encouragement for me since I'm such a nascent blogger. Thankyou Gagan!

Here I am, revealing seven secrets about me:
  1. I have a fetish for handmade paper. I hoard it like nothing else. Even without thinking what am I going to do with it, I just buy it whenever I get a chance.
  2. I love pottery. A few years ago, I used to go to a pottery studio every week. I have done glazing, painting bisque pieces and some handbuilding. I 'd do anything for a chance to try my hand on the pottery wheel someday.
  3. I'm not much of a reader. In my college days, I really liked reading fiction, but not so much anymore.
  4. I live by my list of things to do and list of pending projects. Without these I feel completely lost.
  5. I love, love shopping and anyone who knows me well, knows this about me. For me, no travel is complete without a trip to the local market. It's also my biggest destressor. When I did not have my own home, I mostly shopped for myself. Now, its mostly for my home and garden. 
  6. I am a big fan of nature. I love being outdoors. When I was in college, I would go on hikes and treks so often. That's one reason I'd love to stay close to the mountains. 
  7. I am so thankful to whoever invented the DVR. Its the only way for both myself and dear hubby to catch up on our favorite shows on TV every weekend.   
Now to the part where I pass this on to seven stylish bloggers. I have come to know so many talented and brilliant bloggers these past few months that its just too hard to pick just seven. So I'll choose those who have truly inspired me, those who I ardently admire and I'd really like to know those seven secrets about them (wink).
  1. Priya @ Once Upon a Tea Time
  2. Anu @ My dream canvas
  3. Prachi @ Purplehomes
  4. Bhavna @ An Indian Summer
  5. Patty @ Colours Dekor
  6. Neha @ PaperMagic twigs
  7. Rajee Sood @ Styling & Design with Rajee Sood
I 'd like to add that getting this award from Gagan means a lot to me. She is a huge source of inspiration to me here in the blogosphere. I look forward to each post of hers at P& glad she is back from her vacation.


  1. OMG! I'm blushing beetroot red right now--thanks Neha!

    I too have a fetish for handmade paper---my stash was still there back home, I was so surprised that my mom had saved it all these years! :) I'd love to take up pottery some day and I'm a shopaholic (there, I've said it.) :)

    Love your list of "nominees"--people after my own heart! :)

  2. Good going girl! The only reason I didn't share the award with you was this, I wanted you to get this from some outside source, so it doesn't look like all in the family...and it definitely feels much more worthy when you get it from the world.

  3. GB: *smiles* and more *smailes*. So happy to know that we share many interests.

    Sharkara: I totally agree with you. You and I are newbies. Feels great to get the award.

  4. Neha, I am your newest follower. Thank you so much for the lovely award.

  5. Awwww...I'm so glad that you are a follower. It means a lot to me. Hope you like what you see here.

  6. Hi Neha, thanks for the award! :) I'm in benaras right now.. Something I wanted to do for a long time... Will be back in Dubai in week and a half and look forward reading more of your blog and sharing a bit about me. :) cheers from benaras!! And happy holi!!

  7. Thank you Neha...wish you the same! Have a nice trip.

  8. Thanks for the award Neha...means a lot to me. Following your lovely blog now.

  9. Wow! Thank you so much Neha! It's been some time since I won an award! the feeling! :)

    P.S: I think we need to compare notes on our collection of handmade paper...I too am a hoarder :)

  10. Thats good to know, Bhavna. I do envy you, though, as you are in India. There are such wonderful places where you can get all kinds of handmade paper. I myself visited a few of them when I was in Delhi this time.

  11. Congrats on the award Neha- like your likes :)


I'd love to hear from you...your comments make me smile!
