ECHOES – MARCH MOMENTS

Welcome Potpourriers to yet another Monthly Favourites post. Can’t really believe three months have already gone by, feels like i had recently celebrated 2016 New Years…hmm time actually flies 🙂 And just like February , March was truly awesome in all means !!! ❤

“My MARCH 2016 MOMENTS”

Meeting Prats ( Pratyusha ) this was crazy, it was simply crazy, i had known Prats for only a month now that too via chats (our bloggers whatsapp group) and a month later we were meeting and best part it was all impromptu. Her coming down to Bangalore for a client visit, me being able to go meet her the same night as that was the only time she was free but we made it. And she surprised me with a book as gift. Thanks Prats ❤

DIY – Liquor Bottle and LEDs : So i have this weird liking of collecting Liquor bottles and i think i have a pretty decent collection as of now. Thanks to all my friends for contributing to my collection. I really like painting these bottles, doodling on them, trying yarn work and most recently i did this. An LED string and a bottle and you are good to go with a decorative piece in your living room.

March and one thing you remember for sure is WOMEN’s DAY: March 8th is celebrated as the International Women’s Day all across the world. And like majority of the companies, mine too had various events lined up for the women employees. Ethnic day, games, give away etc. Below is the glimpse of the Ethnic Day celebration at work with my office buddies

Authores Beyond Borders: Last month i had mentioned about my Blogger Whatsapp group but i missed this pic . So here it is all of us. We are one family now and my day doesn’t go by without interacting with them 😀 ❤ Am yet to meet Sana Vishnu Priya and Farid who are also in Bangalore!!!

The Yin and Yang of my Life: Sometimes you come across few people in your life who just change the way you look at things, or feel about yourself. All they do is be themselves and help us be our truest self. I am glad i met these two handsome hunks – Vikas and Dilip.  I have known them for quiet sometime now but this month actually made me realize how balanced they help me be( being the confused self i am all the time)

BATMAN vs SUPERMAN: I think this movie was not as happening as how a superhero fan would love it to be but then it was after all a Superheroes movie so no complaints. Ben Affleck looked super hot as Batman and did total justice to the character. I never liked Superman as much as i liked other superheroes but this movie has totally changed my liking towards Superman(and Henry Cavill). I had tears by the end of the movie(the ones who have seen it would know what am talking). Batman ❤ Thanks to Vipin my friend for the good company. I like people who discuss movie while watching it.

Jenni
Jennifer or Jenni as we Indians call her 🙂 She is such a warm and strong woman. I think we instantly connected just in few exchange of messages and am glad to have her as a friend

Finally – #AtoZChallenge: I  think most of my posts in the month of March was about the upcoming (from tomorrow to be very specific) Ultimate Blogging Challenge. Have been working on it (and am still not prepared completely) . I have chosen my Theme and i hope i do justice to it. I have even signed up few blogger friends of mine to do guest posts during the challenge. And am super excited about it as this is going to be my first ever Blogging challenge (never done daily blogs) and being a Minion with Holton’s HeroesI hope i survive this challenge 😀 😀

Almost 1700 + bloggers worldwide have signed up for the challenge. Its gonna be fun and exciting. Am already meeting new bloggers and reading some amazing posts. Really interesting cool themes. April is gonna be insane 🙂 All the best to everyone who have signed up for it. Yipee!!! Two more hours for the challenge to begin 🙂

Echoes – Fabulous February

Welcome to my Monthly Favorites section which is an Action Replay of all those beautiful moments that i have experienced in the last 30 days. Though i have missed the Jan month , but what better way to start with the month of love – February, so much love that it actually had an extra 24 hours for us to spend. Moving forward every month am gonna post my favorites cause i guess you blog now and live forever and these moments of mine are gonna remain even when i leave this world.

“Welcome Potpourriers to my Fabulous February 2016”

The best thing that happened to me this month was definitely and undoubtedly the #FlipkartOutdoors Indiblogger Meet @Mango Mist Resorts on the 20th of Feb 2016. I didn’t have the slightest idea how amazing it would be to meet fellow bloggers. My first every blogger meet where i met some really crazy, fun and interesting folks. It needs to be experienced words just can’t sum up the whole feel of it (yeah I do fall short of words at times). 

Having said that, the moment you hear February just one word comes in your mind naturally and that would be the Love!! Valentines day was never a big deal for me it was just another day either spending quality time with myself or with my loved ones. But this time i celebrated my Valentines day on a Harley 🙂 Yeah i have this amazingly loving friend whom i really lookup to well he took me on a ride on a Harley. Might sound lame to few but then not everyone gets to sit on a beast machine (at least that i know of)

Feb 10th is a special day for me, its my Parents Wedding Anniversary and i am so so proud that am born to such incredibly beautiful couple who have defined what love is all about. And having an article on them published on a reputed firm like Women’s Web only made this month more special and a gift to my parents.

And finally the perfect way to end the fabulous month was to go this place which is my second home cause it gave me friends whom i have now known for a decade and they are the best thing that has happened to me in life. They just let me be me by just being themselves. My Best Friends and my best place Hyderabad (more to come about them in my A to Z Blogging Challenge next month). All that i need to do to rejuvenate myself is to board a bus go to Hyderabad meet these angels of my life that is all i need and am good to go until the next time.

Some other important fav of the month were 

Caprio finally winning the Oscars  for the movie The Revenant on the 29th of Feb (what a leap yr to remember)

> My Whatsapp bloggers group – “Authors Beyond Borders” they keep me entertained and they pamper me with so much love ,care and warmth

> Handmade gifts that i made for a bunch of friends like the Zentangled Bookmark for Deeksha and Sriji, the Max poster for Rahul

> Buying more and more books, i ended up taking a crossword membership. I have bought like  14 books in the last one month

> Lunching out every Friday of Feb month and each time a new place

> Met many new people who have touched my heart in some way.

> One step closer to something big that’s gonna happen in my life 

> Listening to the Grammy winners collection on repeat mode 😛

February was indeed Fabulous and am sure March is gonna treat me well (you better March) cause it’s the best season of the year Spring ❤ ❤ ❤ and a lot of homework on the upcoming April month’s AtoZ Challenge 2016 . Fingers crossed for this one, its my first ever big blogging challenge and i hope i survive this one. I am gonna try to publish more posts in March just to get myself prepared for April.
It’s already two months down of 2016, woohoo this year seems so to run fast….!! What was your Feb Fav?? Let me know!

Please be good to my family ,friends and me!!!

Live. Love. Laugh!!! Repeat!!! ❤
