EatingOut – The California Boulevard in Gurgaon

EatingOut – The California Boulevard in Gurgaon

It was Saturday, the Fourth of July. My Twitter timeline & Facebook / Instagram feeds were heavily populated with updates on fireworks and parades, summer barbeques and picnics, and all manners of patriotic festivities from across the globe. Meanwhile, I was sitting holed up in my cubicle at work, feeling increasingly restless.

Monthly Instagram Update – July 2015

Monthly Instagram Update – July 2015

26 Days…!
It’s been 26 days since my last post; the longest I have ever gone, in my over two years of blogging, without something new coming out on LifeOnMyPlate!

Definitely not something I am proud of!

But with some disturbances and disruptions in life this past month, and some new travel planning that is turning out to be way more complicated than I had anticipated, penning down a post was the last thing on my mind. But more on that later…!

So while I head off to try and get my Blogging mojo back, here’s a quick look at the past month, flashed back through Instagram.

Monthly Instagram Update – June 2015

Monthly Instagram Update – June 2015

June was a bit of a mixed bag for me…
There was a lot going on off the blog this past month: a hectic work schedule over the past so-many months culminated in a promotion that I was very glad for; and all the celebrations that came along with it were very welcome!
There was certain good news to be had on the Blog as well, but more on that in just a little bit!

But while there was ample cause to rejoice last month, June also became the first month in over a year that I did not travel outside of Delhi AT ALL. No work trip, no quick weekend getaway, nothing! So the #Take12Trips in 2015 challenge took a small hit. Luckily, I’ve got a few trips planned in the months to come, so I’m not beating myself up too much over it!

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

Monthly Instagram Update – May 2015

Monthly Instagram Update – May 2015

I’ve been having a particularly rough time dealing with the Delhi summer this year!
The city feels like a furnace, and more than 5 seconds spent outdoors feels like my skin might be set ablaze any moment!

Needless to say, I’ve been hiding indoors and avoiding stepping outside of home / office as much as possible. June is turning out to be quite an uneventful month.

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

3 Girls & a #BlogAlong – My Travel Must-Packs

3 Girls & a #BlogAlong – My Travel Must-Packs

Welcome back to the monthly link-up guys! And yes, it’s a week late, but while yours truly has been roasting in the Delhi heat, 2 out of the 3 Girls hosting the #BlogAlong were off holidaying in far – off lands, and hence we decided to postpone the party by a week.

But let’s not waste another moment and get right to it, shall we?

This month, it’s all about our travel must-packs and must-haves, things we never travel without and things you’ll always find in our suitcases when we’re traipsing around the globe.

My Favourite Travel Souvenirs

My Favourite Travel Souvenirs

When I first heard that the topic for this month’s travel link-up hosted by the lovely ladies Kelly, Rebecca and Emma, with co-host Jaime was Travel Souvenirs; my first reaction was Oh No!

Not because it isn’t a great topic (it really is a superb one!), but because it had been on my mind as a potential topic for the 3Girls & a #BlogAlong monthly link-up party I recently started hosting myself!

But oh well… I’m sure I’ll come up with something else… :)
