10 Things I Love
Just a little note: So my header has a teensy problem. That neither makes it look pretty nor attractive. The new one (made by Ari of The Path Before Forever) is really great but the old one refuses to vanish. Please bear with the ugliness till I figure out how to fix it. Or if any of you do know how to fix it, please please please don’t hesitate to tell me. Thanks! Now back to the post…
A wonderful blogger, Kristie of Lace & Berries, tagged me in ’10 Things I Love’, according to which I have to
- State who gave you this award in your post.
- State 10 things that you love.
- Give this award to 10 other bloggers, listing them at the end of the post, and notify them with a lovely comment.
Easy peasy. Now the top ten things I love (apart from family, friends and my three musketeers, who are two cats and a dog) are
Cooking, baking, tossing, whipping, basically anything in the kitchen. I am a complete foodie and love to make my own food. Apart from fashion blogs (and pet blogs) my other favourite genre is cooking blogs. Wonderful, delicious, sumptuous, finger licking, mouth watering, what else? I can make dinner for four without whining and have been messing around in the kitchen since I could learn to walk (or so my mom says). So it goes without saying, I’ll don the chef hat with no qualms.
#9 Harry Potter
Yes, I am an ardent Harry Potter fan. I am one of those freaks who thinks J.K. Rowling should get a Pulitzer or something. I have CollegeFashion‘s posts on varius Harry Potter wardrobe inspirations stashed in my favourites. Thinking of how Quidditch could be converted into a playable real-world game is one of my favourite pastimes when I’m bored at school. Just one thing though, I am of the firm opinion that the books are way better than the movies. Or maybe that’s just the nerd inside me speaking.
I am also a television junkie. I will watch (and get hooked to) any random sitcom I come across. My current TV list includes Glee, 18 To Life, The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Community, 30 Rock, Mad Men, Gossip Girl, Entourage and it goes on. My new best friend is tv.blinkx.com Don’t ask me how I make time for all of it. It just makes time for itself.
#7 The LBD
The classic, evergreen wardrobe staple. Can be oh-so easily dressed up or down. It adds panache to any look and is flattering on everyone. Audrey Hepburn made this piece popular and all for a good cause. It is chic, versatile and you can find some that are easy on the pocket. Need I say more?
#6 Vintage Cars
A hunk of shiny metal says you? Well, a priceless vintage car says I. Seriously, these things just make me go weak in the knees. Others consider it ludicrous, but my infatuation refuses to cease. It’s just one of those things.
#5 Edibles with a high quantity of sugar
Cupcakes, chocolate, lollipops, toffees, cookies, you name it. I like to think of sugar as my lifeline. Oh, and just so you know, I do brush my teeth thrice a day. It’s the price you have to pay for a high sugar diet.
#4 Classical music
Classical music is something that will never lose it’s charm regardless of the other genres that keep popping up. Vivaldi, Bach, Debusssy; geniuses each one of them. Learning the piano myself, it’s not hard to appreciate this kind of music. Others my consider this genre for geeks or whatever, but all I’ll say to that is each man to his own.
#3 My iPhone
I love this nifty little piece of technology to bits. Who wouldn’t? The iPhone doesn’t need an introduction. I can do anything under the sun on it (let’s not go into literal meanings). I can blog, photograph, listen to music, chat, do absolute nonsense and waste my time; it’s perfect. Words can’t describe it. Let’s leave it at that.
#2 New York
New York City. My dream, ambition, passion, everything. Ever since I first saw New York City in a movie when I was a kid, I’ve been absolutely fascinated. And it still doesn’t cease to impress. This gritty city is where I want to be. That place is like a living magazine. It is a treasure for someone like me. It is THE most happening place. Why do most movies have NY as their backdrop? Why do great people love this city enough to call it home? Why does Frank Sinatra sing a song for this city? Go figure.
#1 Reading, writing, and literature in general
I’m a self confessed bookworm. I have a voracious appetite and can devour pages after pages in no time. In the same way, I can spew out pages after pages too. Short stories, essays, poems, posts anything and everything. Learning a new language isn’t a burden for me. I feel completely at home in a library (with good ventilation of course) and writing reports isn’t a hard task. That doesn’t mean I enjoy doing homework or anything. I’d rather spend my time with a good Jeffery Archer or something on the same lines.
