Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head…

…Just like the man whose feet are too big for his bed, nothing seems to fit… 🎶🎵 When I was a child of about five or six years, my father would sing this song to me. And for some reason unfathomable to him at the time, and later on, to me as well, it would… Continue reading Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head…

Life In Colour

Hello, folks! Today’s manicure is a tribute to my younger self (Narcissistic? Nah!). During my teenage years and for a long, long time afterwards, I was an avid player of The Sims. From the barebones and laughably simplistic first iteration to the rather lifelike platform today, I’ve played them all, sometimes for weeks on end,… Continue reading Life In Colour

Celtic Glow

Hello! I hope you’re having a good weekend! I didn’t manage to do nail art for Fluid Friday this week, although I did get as far as making the decals. Friday was a very busy day and I didn’t even have time for lunch. I put the final finishing touches on my dissertation and it’s… Continue reading Celtic Glow

I Want To Believe…

Hello, folks! I’m back with yet another mani. This is for the #halloweenforevercollab on Instagram. This is a monthly collaboration of Halloween nail art lovers and the theme this month was aliens. This is my first time participating in this collab, and I can safely say it won’t be the last! The base is three… Continue reading I Want To Believe…

Turquoise & Rust Skittlette

Hello, folks! Baby ACD has been having a rough week. Between a cold and stuffy nose, and cutting two new teeth, sleep has not been very restful. Needless to say, I have been grasping at every minute of sleep I can have. At the end of a week or so of this, I am quite… Continue reading Turquoise & Rust Skittlette

Magnetic Petunias

Hello, folks! Another day, another mani, another day I delay writing a baby-related post that’s been on my mind. I’m not usually crazy about the colour purple, and most definitely not of the royal/neon-leaning purple. So, I took myself by surprise when I not only liked Tonic Toxic, but liked it very much indeed! I’ve… Continue reading Magnetic Petunias

Divas Come In All Colours

Hello! I started writing a post about the obsession we South Asians have with pale skin, but having gotten an average of 4 hours of sleep for about as many months, I find that my writing is far from succinct. Someday, this blog may feature more profound thoughts, but for now, fleeting thoughts of a… Continue reading Divas Come In All Colours

Draconem

Hello! It’s been a while since I started a post with anything other than dismal, exhausted thoughts running through my mind. We’ve had a wonderful week: Baby ACD is on the mend, she went to daycare this week and is starting to adjust; I got a ton of work done on my dissertation revisions, as… Continue reading Draconem

Caught In A Loop

Hi, there! Ever since my defense last month, poor Baby ACD seems to be caught in an awful cycle of illness. She started going to daycare around that time, and from what we’re told, this is fairly common at the beginning when babies get exposed to more germs. It should help build immunity in the… Continue reading Caught In A Loop
