Take a sad song and make it better

June 1, 2010

I’ve been singing Hey Jude for the past two days now, even passed it on to the boyf. Can’t help it- the Beatles are magical ♥

And any time you feel the pain, Hey Jude, refrain
Don’t carry the world upon your shoulders
For well you know that it’s a fool who plays it cool
By making his world a little colder


My mom bought this dress for me when I was in high school and I wore it for the first time today. I’ve always meant to give it away but couldn’t part with it because I think it’s pretty. Fitting’s a little dodgy on me though- maybe I could get it altered.


My aunt in Mumbai made this lace bolero for me two years ago but again I hardly wear this too.


I tried a braided updo today, I think it’s perfect for summers with pretty dresses, no?

I learnt how to do it from this awesome tutorial only I added two more braids on top because the original braids were too thick and I have layers as well. Simple stuff though.

I love these H & M earrings, they came with a matching bracelet too 🙂


Hope you’re having a fabulous day ♥ (if you’re not, it’s ok- that’s why we have new days. Precious, remember?)



  • Wow stunning! <3 love this, love how you're digging up old clothes from the closet, you look great, I should do the same, I should SO join your challenge! 😀 Old is the new new! 😀
    ps. what an amazing view!!!!!

  • You look so beautiful. I love your hair like that, it looks so elegant but unfussy at the same time. That dress is great on you, I would look so washed out and possibly dead, but you look all glowing and gorgeous.
    I have the same earrings! It's so cool and kinda weird to see someone else halfway around the world with the same stuff as you.
    I also love the Beatles and especially Hey Jude.
