5 New Things Before the Year Ends

Year end always messes with my mind. It's like running against time, fumbling through checklists and goals, trying to tick atleast few of them. As a result, a lot of new things are happening in my life right now.

1) You must have already read about my experiment with DIY hairstyle, how I cut my hair myself to get this beach-y wavy sort of look following a Youtube tutorial.



2) I am learning to drive (which was pretty big on my to-do list). All's good, except I forget to slow down while taking a turn. My husband has decided to paste "L" stickers all around the car, to warn people on the road. 😂

3) I have turned pesco-vegetarian. Except seafood and eggs, I have stopped eating all other kind of non vegetarian food. No more Xialongbao, no more Tonkatsu bowls. This is a conscious decision and I hope I follow it through. I have even limited my dairy intake to only yogurt - but that's because I believe dairy is causing my forehead acne. So now my favourite snack is Scrambled eggs stuffed in Avocado.



4) The gaping space beneath the old-fashioned staircase had been bothering me all through the year. A trip to Ikea was enough to solve that problem. The bookcase is a perfect fit. 😍



5) The Oil paints were bought eons ago. Unused, unopened ... but it was time. The last week of the year turned me into a painter too (a rubbish one though).



Yup, it's on the wall too... My husband is left with no other choice 😝
Is there anything new that you are trying just before the year ends?

  2. Lovely painting! Scrambled egg stuffed in avocado looks delicious. And I loved your hair cut. I'm yet to go through your Diy post. I can use with few tips. :) Good luck with driving. I started to drive again after a gap of almost 3 years. I was worried, still is. Driving with the baby on the back seat is a.bit nerve racking for me. Thankfully he hasn't caused any trouble so far. Fingers crossed. :)

  5. You are very talented. Those eggs in Avocado sounds very new. Haven't heard that ever. Your painting too is very colorful. Nothing new by the end of 2016 except a new post maybe? :)

  7. The hairstyle looks fab, and the bookshelf is awesome! Haven't eaten avocadoes (yet), so I'll take your word that it's an amazing dish.

    Hope to see more oil paintings in the blog now, Rajlakshmi! Wishing you a happy 2017 :)

  8. Wow, the painting is just beautiful! You should paint more. Also, with regard to driving, the condition is almost same in my life also.I am in dire need of a 'L' board. I was contemplating becoming a egg-tarian myself, but having got the courage to do so yet. You are nudging me in the right direction. Let me see :)

  9. I like the different take on a year-end post! :) Your hair is awesome, your painting is exquisite! I've contemplated becoming a pescetarian occasionally but I do crave red meat! Also, how did you survive in Sydney without driving? My first three years in Aus were tough because I had to depend on public transport while living in the burbs! Hope you have a wonderful 2017!
