My sincere apology to all of you for boring you with my depression talk throughout the whole week. Turns out my depression was perfectly curable with the help of a little retail therapy. Not that I didn’t know it all along,just wasn’t finding time to go shopping(crazy,right?Who needs ‘time’ for shopping?And I’m so not proud of saying it!).So,finally,I ditched college this Friday and went out doing what I do whenever I’ve an ugly break up or my grades don’t exactly cheer me up or I can’t pick up a step-SHOPPING!And trust me,it was totally worth the two hour extra journey I had to take in order to reach the rehearsal studio from there.Thank you for asking,but as you might’ve noticed,I’ve been having a really tough time cash-wise,thanks to all my friends who had to come to the world around this time only,I didn’t buy much.But who says you’ve to be rich to experience the divine pleasure called SHOPPING?Window-shopping never hurts,right?And in addition to that,it doesn’t burn a hole in your pocket!After strolling past Shreeram Arcade and Old New Market building,I found this baby in Simpark Mall that I simply couldn’t resist.The baby here was an absolutely gorgeous sling.The moment I set my eyes on her,I just knew that it was mine and I had to take it home.The shopkeeper won’t let it go for anything less than 795 bucks but after promising him four more customers,reminding him of my past purchases from here in the past three months or so and most importantly,let him touch my back and have my phone no.(yes,I can stoop down that far and not be ashamed of it too),I closed the deal at 500!And as I felt its smooth fabric caressing my hands while going into my bag,I shivered.I paid for it and went out after,wait-for-it,giving the nagging shopkeeper a free hug!I can still feel his smelling tee but one look at the sling,and it doesn’t bother me as much.Next I bought a ‘jhola’ from the stretch in front of the Hogg Market and though the heat and sweat were getting unbearable,the bargaining was much easier than the previous one.Then I had to buy some essentials,like a pack of tissues,a good ol’ black nail paint(yes,after trying various shades of green,yellow,pink,blue,red and white,I’m going back to black,almost after two years),a few bangles,a headband,nail clippers and cuticle cream.At the risk of almost crossing my budget limit,I finally swore of my mom(she’s the person I love most in this world)and promised myself not to buy anything more for that day.Then I went to ‘Wow momo’ and gulped down a plate of steaming hot Chicken Capsicum momo(with a generous helping of those
fiery chutneys)and left for my rehearsal studio at Circus Avenue.Took a few pictures with the new ‘jhola’ the very next day,thought I should share.
P.S.I know this lollipop look is so dated but I’m simply in love with these lycra churidars!Just can’t live without them!
