what's on your mind?

Its so easy to write about things which make you happy...bright things... great things but for most of us...life is just life...mundane routine with its share of heartache, unanswered questions, insecurities and miseries... what better way to work upon them than spilling those thoughts into words..reading them over and over again until they make sense or until someone put some sense into it all.
A weird feeling of being unimportant remains stuck to my skin today... you know ...the feeling that you have when you wonder whether the people you love so much ( to death literally) love you as much you do...not that you are asking for pay back for your love but still...is it a great feeling to feel loved by the person you love....
many would say that love can be expressed in many ways but what can give you a bigger heartache than your feelings being brushed aside as unimportant by your loved ones...
i will soon be leaving for few long weeks in an unknown land... i need to pursue some work related stuff... fellowship in vitreoretinal surgery..under full scholarship...a very rare opportunity for us in the medical  world... despite knowing that this is a big big opportunity...i cannot help but apprehend the whole experience...firstly because i am mother to a 15months old baby and i feel my heart tearing inside knowing that i will have to leave him behind to pursue those studies... but my husband and (less importantly) many other people feel that i am exaggerating... i feel hurt...very hurt that at times my husband make fun of this grief... i know he doesn't mean bad but how can males be so insensitive at times...
in summary... i feel like very hard days are to come... i feel like closing down on my self, closing out all negative comments...digest my grief... swallow my tears...wait for it to be over... all in the hope that whatever i am doing matter for those whom i care and love...

Travel in style...

 I have been planning a small trip over Europe for past few weeks. It going to be by end of October- autumn/ winter transition time and involves 5-6 different areas, budget travelling and exciting stuffs ( more details later). Needless to say , me being me, thinking about the appropriate clothing style  for my trip also comes under  trip-planning !
As this trip will mean multiple stops, limited luggage ( seriously...this should be meant for male travellers only!!), plane and train travelling, shopping,... i need outfits and shoes which cover the following points:
1. comfortable( for the long travel hours and walking)
2.stylish!!!! ( for walking the streets of beautiful Paris...)
3.versatile ( need to be able to mix match stuff cause i cant possibly carry 20 different outfits cause the trip will last 3weeks)
4. lightweight
5. warm
6. suit my budget ( ha! travelling is exciting but need to think about the bank account also...)

i have been browsing the net for some inspiration ( Deepika padukone is so effortlessly chic..) and this is what i came up with...

Crisp white shirt, brown leather belt, blue jeans- versatile and a look that never disappoints- can be spiced up with some gold tone jewelry

I think a trip is a good time to invest in some wardrobe staple: good pair of long lasting blue jeans, comfy shoes, spacious bag

comfortable sweater, nice pair of stylish Aviator sunglasses( invest in a good pair to protect your eyes), walking sneakers- all pair with your staple blue jeans/ a white one if i got some packing space

some pinkies  for when i feel like being girlie!!  lightweight stuff, easily paired with blue jeans and browns shoes and accessories

For a glam night out( thinking about my dinner out in Paris, clubbing and catching up with friends and relatives in London and Belfast)

On the Sand Dunes...

We used this last weekend we have together (my friends and i) to visit one of the attractions of the Gironde- the Dunes de Pilat and the Bassin d'Arcachon. This weekend was also a break from the stressful time we all are going through right now in preparing our "Soutenance de Memoire" which is due in 2-3 weeks.

The Dunes de Pilat is the tallest sand dune of Europe and is found in the community of La Teste de Buch.The dune has a volume of about 60,000,000 m³, measuring around 500 m wide from east to west and 2.7 km in length from north to south. Its height is 108 metres above sea level. 
The dune is considered a foredune, meaning a dune that runs parallel to a shoreline of the Atlantic Ocean, behind the high tide line of a beach. The dune has been observed to move landward, slowly pushing the forest back to cover houses, roads and even portions of the atlantic wall. This great wall of sand has been formed by the powerful Atlantic ocean winds.

What was in the mail the past week...

Bought some stuffs online and received the packages last week...

1. My new Scholl slippers... those are supposed to have soles that reduce impacts on your knees and hip. They are very soft and comfy- not really true to size, they are more on the smaller side. I got these for 28 Euros which i believe is a quite a deal for a orthopedic shoes... what do you think?

2. My DP dress... my fav buy for August... a little black dress... very elegant and chic which i am waiting to wear for my birthday dinner coming up very soon. Paired up with gold-bronze jewelry and black suede pump...red lipstick...this will look amazing. Bargain price of  30 Euros
Ain't this gorgeous??


Plans for a lazy Sunday...

Sundays are days to lay back and relax ... After whole week of toiling at work and listening and trying to relieve the pain of others... on this day, i just feel the need of having some time to myself  for some pampering...lazying...to get ready for the week ahead...

Joys of travelling by french bus...

Awww.... Despite my Hussain Bolt sprint... I missed the 08:44 bus by 1.75 seconds!!! I will be late for today... Yeah...french buses are known to stick to their schedule and also for not stopping anywhere else than on the bus stop... Their punctuality is definitely due to that terrific bus lane which helps in gaining time in heavy traffic hours ...Which brings me to think that this is so unlike in Mauritius( you Mauritians out there definitely know what i am talking about dont you??!!) Mauritian buses on the exact contrary are known to ... Never be on time, more exactly always late.... Stopping 10mts before or after the actual bus stop, on the round about,....bref anywhere! Imagine the fun when you are stuck driving behind one...
Ah my french bus has arrived... In time...As expected. Goodbye for now
