STYLE SWAP TUESDAYS - PANTONE 2018

In case you missed the memo: ULTRA VIOLET is the Pantone color of 2018. A rich shade of purple, ultra violet will be the reigning-color of this year. Honestly  speaking, I wouldn't have given these purple pants a try, had it not been in the pantone purple. I would have just walked past it and picked out something blue ( my evergreen color ). But I am glad I did, coz the pants are super comfy, roomy enough to go over a pair of tights and biggest factor: they just went on sale here !!!!!

TOMATO BASIL SOUP TO WARM YOU UP ON A COLD-COLD NIGHT

It has been so cold lately, that all I crave for dinner is a piping-hot bowl of soup and some garlic or cheese sandwich to go with it. There is no better feeling than a hot bowl of soup on a chilly-chilly night. It is classic, comforting and convenient to make, specially after work. It is easy to open a can of soup, pop it in the microwave and wrap up dinner in no time. But when you make the soup, you control what goes into it, specially the sodium and MSG, which is BTW the main taste-maker additive in your can of soup. So why not spare thirty minutes and serve dinner made with all your love and warmth. 

Winter is the best time to channel the soup-lady in you, and today I am channeling my inner Rachel Ray and bringing to your recipe box a tomato basil soup recipe, that you could make in under 30 minutes.......well not exactly 30 if you decide to oven-roast your tomatoes, which takes about 30 minutes. You could either oven roast the tomatoes or give them a quick roast on your gas-top grill.

LAYERING 101- HOW TO BUNDLE UP IN STYLE

You all are no stranger to the news that the East Coast has been hit by a huge Bomb Cyclone. In the past fortnight the temperatures have dipped to as low as negative 20's in our area. For the entire two weeks we witnessed snow, wind chills and this morning: a thin sheet of ice, as if the aforementioned wasn't enough damage causing. Well, I am not here to deliver you the weather report, but talk about the sartorial struggles we face owing to such extreme weather conditions, as fashion bloggers.

Some of the bloggers I know, resort to indoor photoshoots during extremities, but the adventurous ones like yours truly, cant seem to make peace with bringing camera indoors, that without a doubt has it's own problems-saga. But what do you do, when it is sub-zero, and you still gotta do what you gotta do??? Well, you strategically dress up in layers of warm clothing, head out and take killer pictures. 

Layering can either go very right, or very very wrong. It is an art that I am still honing, but surely gotten better at over these years and today I am sharing with you a few cold-weather essentials you need for bundling up, but without looking like a walking muffin.......
