#BookReview – Mrs. Funnybones

Twinkle Khanna is Jane Austen, reincarnated.

Booted with a keen eye that observes every minute detail, an open mind that soaks in information without bias, and an endearing self-deprecating sense of humour, Twinkle Khanna is most definitely my favourite authoress, Jane Austen, reborn. She’s charming, witty and fast becoming one of my role models.

Throughout the book, her ability to keenly observe social norms and behaviour and putting her point across with an impertinence that is so sweet, it can only remind you of  Austen’s literary works. This book is seriously my kind of forever. Even 20 years down the road, I know I’m gonna pick this up and read it with just as much gusto as my first time.

This is a classic, guys. Pour yourself some coffee, get cosy at “your spot” and devour this read!

A Secret Revealed by Christopher C. Doyle

Hey y’all!

The last time I wrote on my blog, it was a review of The Mahabharata Quest: The Alexander Secret, and this time round, I’m here with a short review of the shortest read of my life A Secret Revealed. The book took a total of 35 mins of my time reading the front page, back page, and the contents.

A recommended read for those who like to drift away to the land of fantasy and mystery, continue to read my full review below.

Mosh Book Review – The Mahabharata Quest: The Alexander Secret

The Alexander Secret

The Mahabharata Secret: The Alexander Secret by Christopher C. Doyle

Hey y’all!

I have a confession: I don’t like being an insomniac, and I try very hard to go to bed on time. Reading helps (sometimes only, because there have been situations when I’ve been unable to put down a book).

So here’s a book I picked up at an airport during my recent travels and luckily the book, The Mahabharata Quest: The Alexander Secret, did not let me get bored. Here’s a snippet of review, mainly discussing the plot, writing style and characters, my overall opinion and especially recommended age. The actual review is here on my goodreads account along with other books’ reviews.

Herb Ritts – In Equilibrio

Hi y’all!

I’ve been in a very “museum exhibit” mood these days, because amazing things are being showcased around Italy, and while I’m here, I do not want to miss out on any of them.

Herb Ritts – In Equilibrio was definitely one of them!

Exhibit Space, Palazzo della Ragione, Milano.

 

 

This world famous photographer’s work has been on display since February 20th, and I’m so glad I went for it.

It was an amazing feeling to see iconic images put on display, seeing them first hand, reading about the photographer’s point of view while he took the pictures, knowing about the people he shot, etc. That’s why I love such exhibits; because of the connection established with the exhibitor at a personal level.

I’m sharing a few images here, just to give you guys a taste of literally how amazing his works are.

Armani / Silos

Hey y’all!

So I’m back this time with an amazing experience to share with you all – Armani / Silos.

Giorgio Armani is a gorgeous man who designs gorgeous clothes, and has created this gorgeous universe made of confident, sensual and effortlessly stylish people. The beautiful world of Armani, is a world that everybody aspires to be a part of. That’s the dream he sells, and that’s the dream I was sure would be presented throughout the museum.

So, with much anticipation and expectations, I (finally!) went to check the place out.

Hey y’all!

So I’m back again! I’ve been MIA for proper reasons, I assure you. Pursing Masters degree is no joke, but I have to say I’ve been enjoying my studies a lot. So consumed I’ve been with my assignments and projects, it was really difficult to do something fun and post it here for you. But I suppose, now that I’ve given it a good 4 months to adjusting to my new life in Milan, I shall try and post more frequently. I can’t promise you that it will be all about fashion though. I’ve a new found love in cooking, so I might be expanding on my blog “portfolio” from now on. Of course, fashion will be my main love, but you never know…
