The Leopard Attacks


Finally I'm in my 2nd year of college! When I think back on my initial days in my then new college, Whistling Woods International, my first thought is ofcourse of the orientation session! There was a lot of introduction, fun, rules, games, film screenings and some wild facts about our college!! ;) I'll get straight to the wild fact ofcourse.

We have classes in the middle of the jungle!! hahahaha! Ok not really but kind of. My college is surrounded by the vastness of the hills and jungles and occasional wild animals! Yes you read it right. We have special guests in the form of wild snakes, lizards, spectacular birds, lots of eagles and LEOPARDS! I had a similar kind of excitement and goosebumps just like you, when I heard this on my first day of college. Story goes that once, all the staff and students had to spend the night in the campus due to hungry leopards loitering around the premises.

You must have guessed by now what my look has been inspired by.

Ok! So this was just a fun capture but I love the expression! So wild, isn't it? ;)

No, its not just for the sake of my excitement of someday sensing an uncaged leopard somewhere near me but the fact that we are leaving them homeless! Its population is declining due to habitat loss and hunting for trade and pest control. No wonder there are news of leopards attacks every other day. And hence, this is our own small step to spread the word - Rescue the Big Cats.

The Spanish in Me

Lately I have been taking a lot of inspiration from everything around me. The previous look was inspired by the *fresh green nature*. This time though, it’s a tad bit different.
Spain is known for its history, monuments, culture, tourism, tomatina festival, bull fights, food, football and Senorita! I have always admired Spain.
Since I haven't yet got a chance to visit the magical country physically, I decided to live a tiny bit of it in my own country itself. So, what did I do?

See the pictures and guess for yourself!

 Tomato based cold soup 
Served with a "puchka" on top, the presentation inspired my golden lined lips filled with mandarin red.

Traditional Spanish Rice dish cooked with Seafood.
The fresh mix of colours on the plate inspired the floral printed dress I'm wearing.

Fillet of Beef
the texture, the brown sauce and the green tender bamboo shoots are the perfect inspiration for meaty looking legs!

The good people at Fashion Most Wanted invited me to this heavenly place for a Spanish food tasting session.

All drooling now, aren’t you? So, the next time u want to give your taste buds a surprise treat, head to POCO LOCO, Mumbai for some authentic Spanish Cuisine! The restaurant being small and cozy, it does give you a warm and homely feeling with everything happening right in front of your eyes. If needed, the chef himself comes down to your table to help you decide what to order.
My favourite - The gazpacho soup and paella. And yes! The sangrias. They are simply delicious!
