I am back home in the hills for a short holiday and it is *expletive* amazing here.
First and foremost, I would like to thank and acknowledge the kind people over at Cosmopolitan India and their readers for nominating this blog for the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards 2013 - to nail it down, it's for the Personal Style Category Section so YAY! And moments like this can get you all contemplative and rather giddy because I don't believe anyone starts a blog to get famous but the little recognition and response or the kind readers that this wee old blog of mine has garnered over the years can be pretty overwhelming. People are so nice. THANK YOU.
The mere mention of my blog from people and by people, I mean strangers and even friends and family literally is mortifying for me. Here's what usually happens.
Stranger: OH, I went through your blog, it's really nice.
Me: My blog? I don't have a blog. It must be someone else's.
Stranger: You have a blog right? You're Esther and *trails off*.....
Me: No, no... that's not me. No, sorry.
It's almost four years now since I started this blog and as I grow older, the most significant change fashion-wise would be how extremely FUSSY I have become with regard to the clothes I like. It's almost annoying because It's not easy to come home empty-handed when your prior intent was to get a few staple T-Shirts but on the other hand, it is extremely liberating to be completely sure of what you like and don't - it makes me feel really mature because I still feel like a kid - y'know, like the kid who wants a unicorn and goes crazy at your local kids stores. I'm deviating so before I take your leave, you can vote for my blog here and below are a few pictures from my Instagram Diary for a little visual update. And come follow me there @lalaifanai.
