Monthly Instagram Update – April 2015

Monthly Instagram Update – April 2015

“The bad news is that time flies…
The good news is that you’re the pilot…!”

Just thought I’d start the latest flashback post with a little quote I read recently that resonated with me deeply.

NEVER AGAIN… Lessons (I Hope) travel has taught me

NEVER AGAIN… Lessons (I Hope) travel has taught me

When I first read this topic for a monthly travel blogger’s link-up on my dear virtual friend Shikha’s blog, I couldn’t wait to write out my own entry. What a superb topic, I thought!

We’ve all had them. Those experiences which smack us with disappointment while they are happening, but end up teaching us important lessons for trips to come. The ones which make us stronger, maybe just a little bit wiser!

Introducing 3Girls & a #BlogAlong + Party Snacks for a Busy Bee / Lazy Lucy

Don’t you just love Link-Up Parties?

Well, I certainly do…!
I’ve joined some super awesome link-ups in the Travel Blogging world over the past year or so! Not only have these blogging parties introduced me to a whole bunch of amazing bloggers and opened me up to tonnes of inspiring posts to read, but they’ve also motivated me to blog more often in order to contribute to the link-ups regularly! Win-win, eh!

My Top 3 Travel Bucket List Destinations

My Top 3 Travel Bucket List Destinations

I’m going to be honest here, and just say it!
I DON’T HAVE A BUCKET LIST.

I haven’t pondered over the things I want to do before I die, or made a list of all the places I want to see before I kick the bucket. And for a change, it isn’t because I’m too lazy to make one, or because my ability to procrastinate is award-worthy.

I don’t have a Bucket List simply because I don’t want to limit myself!

I want to see everything there is to see; I want to do everything there is to do; and I want to go everywhere there is to go…!

Ambitious much?!

Yum Yum Cha – A Sushi Lover’s Dream

Yum Yum Cha – A Sushi Lover’s Dream

I had been hearing rave reviews for Yum Yum Cha for months! And I had passed by the always choc-a-bloc full, open-faced restaurant in Select Citywalk Mall in Saket multiple times; the colourful décor and spicy aromas were consistently beckoning.

I have absolutely no idea why it took me so long to try it out, but now that I have, I can’t stop raving about Yum Yum Cha myself.

We’re almost at the end of April, and I still haven’t found the time for the Monthly Instagram Roundup from March! My procrastination skills never cease to amaze me…!

At the beginning of each month I tell myself that I need to get my blogging act together! And yet, in the blink of an eye, the month seems to have whizzed right on by. Pfft… Something must be done!

But before that, here’s a quick look back at the past month, flashed back through Instagram.

Friday Favourites – Best Reads from March 2015

Friday Favourites – Best Reads from March 2015

Welcome back to Life On My Plate’s new monthly series – Friday Favourites!

I’ve become a bit of a passive blogger off-late; work seems to have taken over my life at the moment!
I’m not blogging as much as I would like, and my interactions with other bloggers via comments on their posts and via Social Media is also much quieter than usual.

But that doesn’t mean I’m not trying to keep up with what most of my favourite bloggers are up to. Fleeting moments in between meetings and deadlines, the Metro commute to-and-fro work, sporadic salon appointments, are all times that I find myself catching up on my blog readings.

The Taj Falaknuma Palace in Hyderabad – Meant to Take Your Breath Away

The Taj Falaknuma Palace in Hyderabad – Meant to Take Your Breath Away

Recently coming into the limelight as the venue that hosted one of the most glittering and star-studded Bollywood weddings in recent times, The Taj Falaknuma Palace is a Heritage Luxury Hotel located in the city of Hyderabad, India. Superstar Salman Khan booked the entire hotel for his younger sister’s fairytale wedding, and if the afternoon I spent walking amidst the extravagance is anything to go by, I’m sure guests are transported into a bygone era while resting in the lap of luxury.
