In case you were wondering where have I disappeared these past 4-5 days, I went to LA over the long weekend. Needless to say that I missed blogging quite a bit and that’s why I am writing this post sitting at the airport..(talk about addiction).
A little bit about LA and then off to the other stuff of the blog.
I felt that LA is in true sense of the word “a melting pot” of the world. There are people from anywhere and everywhere, in all shape, sizes and colors, presenting a vast cultural spread that ranges from spic and span highly polished people to the colorful hippies. Of all the places that we saw I think the Venice beach and the Huntington beach truly represented two different worlds. While Huntington, with its grand houses, lavish restaurants and impeccably dressed crowd spoke of lavishness and richness of LA, the Venice beach resembled the LA of mafia, gangs and drugs that I saw in movies(of course, I didn't actually experienced them but got a feel like this). I think the rest of the place keeps swinging somewhere in between. I was also so fascinated by the famous Rodeo Drive (well who isn’t?) which has mansion like shops of designer brands, where you can go inside see, see the stuff and come out sulking on its expensiveness (at least I did). And, the big movie buff that I am, it is needless to say that I absolutely loved the Universal Studios.
Anyways, to cut the long story short, if I have to describe LA in one word it would be “Grand”..the architecture, lights (at night), charm of Hollywood, extravagant houses and fabulous beautiful people, shine in all their glory and captivate and fascinate anyone who goes near them.
And, now time for some awards. Last week two of my very dear blogger friends honored me with some awards. I just want to say thank you so so much for all the appreciation...this is what keeps me going on and on.
The Mommy at Mommy Pages gave me "The Versatile Blogger Award". Do check out her beautiful blog here and say hi for me.
Also Ruth of Underneath His Wrappings presented me with "A blog with Substance" Award. Wow! thank you so much Ruth. Ruth is as beautiful a person as her blog, which I insist you please check out here.
Now the rule - Sum up your blogging philosophy, motivation and experience in five words. HERITAGE, INSPIRATION, GOOD TASTE, IDENTITY & ENCOURAGEMENT.
Finally, a vibrant young girl Vivarjitha of Life is Beautiful honored me with "Cherry on Top Award". Do check out her fabulous blog here.
As part of the deal I have to spill some beans about myself. So here I go:
1) I am a typical typical gemini. I always want to do ten different things at a time and when I am onto something I find my mind racing in totally different direction.
2)Sometimes readers of my blog think I am a fashion designer or associated with the industry in some way. I am not. I am a management student.
3) There was a time when I was crazy about Suniel Shetty (please don't laugh..it is embarrassing enough)
I am saving passing the award tradition for my next post. I am feeling pretty drained out today.
