Feliz Navidad

162  Joyeux Noël With every December that comes along, I find myself reminiscing about all the months that have gone by! Of course, it’s something I do every year but this year-end, I have so much more to be thankful for. Christmas isn’t just a special holiday for me, it’s also a part of me – it’s that whole faith, hope and love effect. And spreading joy! Okay, so I’m digressing a little but when have I not?

A few things come to mind, a couple of which I’m particularly happy about (these are in a very random order, except for having listed them out by month!):

January

Meeting Magali! Discovering the sushi heaven that is Kofuku (Thanks to my love, Sholeen, for which I’ve re-christened her Shofuku). Wrote my first beauty review on the blog – Forest Essentials. 

February 

Spending a part of my birthday at The Yoga House. My office friends helping me pave my way to professional doodling with a start-up fund for my graphic tablet (thank you, guys… Investing in one, soon!). Losing my phone (I love you, Sammy!), and getting it back all in a weekend’s time! 

March 

Listening to, and watching Norah Jones sing and play, in concert. Meeting Nakshatra! Buying a domain for Jupiter Skye, and shifting to WordPress. :-)

April 

Waking up very, very late every day! Watching stupid TV shows and just relaxing, doing absolutely nothing. 

May 

This was a repeat performance of April. Add to that, blogging and making life-lists! Discovering my love for confetti prints, and using it to design my extremely precious business cards, hooray! 

June 

Reading plenty of romances (some dumb, some fun), re-reading the Harry Potter series, receiving my very first commission for an illustrated logo for Roshni Vatnani of The Vanilla Bean Bakery.

July 

For some reason, I can’t remember what I did! Was the Toni & Guy event then? Because that was fun! 

August 

Got hooked on to Crabtree & Evelyn. Broke my ankle the day after Sagan’s birthday (and the same day – Nay, exact moment – I finished watching The Conjuring). Took up the #DoodleADaySep challenge by Ello Lovey (Thanks to Eddy). A broken leg didn’t stop me from shopping online! (Badger Balm from Feel Unique, and stuff from India Circus.)

September 

Spent time at home. Lots of it! Appreciated my legs more, read a loooooooot of books, magazines, watched a lot of Scooby-Doo. Namrata Patel of Namrata-Noted sent me something pretty from her new label, Mzuri!

October 

Nidhi’s birthday. Stepped out of the house for the first time in a few months for her fake birthday surprise!

November 

Beginning work with The Home Label (what a break!). Winning the Cirare giveaway by the sooper-cool Akanksha Redhu. Holding my first giveaway on the blog. Breaking my blogging record by writing 8 posts for the month! 

December

Getting into the Christmas spirit! Playing Santa Claus to a few Twitter friends, buying my first high-low dress from Forever 21 (or was this last month? Shit. I can’t remember! Ooh, also, I have them in two colours now. Woo!). The month is still going on, long and strong, and I’m loving it!

    1. Thank you Pooja! Though I forgot to mention it, I’ve been glad to form some kind of kindred friendship with your sister and you over Instagram, this year. I’m glad to have come across your feeds, plus sometimes I feel like I would really like bumping into you someday. I’m not a very people’s-type-person but I do like similar beings. So yes, it would be all kinds of fun to MEET you in person! ♥
