Rants, Makeup And A Host of Pictures
I have come to realise recently that everything tastes 2700 times better when it's a day old... Don't get me wrong but Daal Makhani from last night is somehow thicker and yummier when had for lunch today, the butter chicken from the party yesterday when heated and had with fresh naan tastes anyday awesome-er during the following dinner and well last night's pizza any day makes the best next-day breakfast ever! And so ofcourse we celebrated the start of the weekend with some yummy Pepperoni and Chicken Supreme pizza for breakfast that were essentially the leftovers for last night's dinner ^_^
And trust me when I say that the day you start your morning with your favorite leftover pizza, that day goes on to become the most fabulous and well the most fruitful day in the week... Proven Fact! Of course what I really mean to say is that I had the busiest weekend in many weeks shooting for HOI products. Yes yes who doesn't like to play dressup at least once a week but honestly, the most fun part of the whole experience is getting to do various makeup looks especially when you have the onus of going for a look that would suit a variety of sarees and other paraphernalia...
So even though the weekend was a little hectic with the shoots and stuff, the whole experience of playing with handicrafts, modelling in various weaves and "feeling" the surreality of being so close to arts that have been around for centuries is something of a lifetime experience! Oh! I love handlooms so much that I can just go on about how they make me feel... So much so that the pati keeps on joking saying "one should not sell stuff that they love, cause then you end up buying everything from yourself"... And so true it is, I have my eyes on so many sarees for the coming Karwachauth that I am praying hard, they don't get purchased so that I could buy them myself :P Ha Ha!
Anyways, coming back, this post is about the two looks I did over the weekend, one on Saturday and the other on Sunday and a little glimpse of the outcome of the shoot as well :)
