Pretty pendant necklace made by me. Size can be adjusted to desired length. Gives more of ethnic look. But you can try it on western wear too like jeans and tees.

Neck piece out of dyed cotton yarn

How's this? My passion to wear long chains, necklaces tempted me to try something out of scraps. 
And yes this is made out of pieces of dyed cotton yarn tied round a bangle.
Isn't it perfect for a grunge look?
It also goes well with a plain tops, tees. Length can be adjusted.

Determine your body shape

It's important to know your body shape in order to dress better and look good. People can be categorized into different shapes. 

Here are few basic shapes:

Pear: people belonging to this tend to carry weight around hips and thighs but slim through bust, waist and shoulders.

Apple: tends to carry weight around bust and waist but slim through hips and thighs.

Hourglass: this is considered to be ideal. They are slim at waist with fuller bust and hips.

Banana: they have slim figure throughout.

Trip to Melkote and Mysore

We were planning for a day trip since a very long time, luckily this happened today. Today also happens to be my cousin's Bday. So a day to remember.
We were six altogether. Started at 6:45 am.

We had breakfast at Kamat lok ruchi. I ordered idli vada.
That's banana leaf covered around idli

With nice breakfast and coffee, we headed to Nadi Narasimha temple. Small yet famous temple. 
It is believed that during drought in that place, Rishi Kanva with his prayers impressed lord Narasimha and asked to bless the people of the region. We even see the Kanva dam nearby. People come here, pray, with twelve rounds round the temple chanting the mantra given and tie the coconut to a wooden log and with their desires, aspirations coming true they do visit again to thank God.

Nadi Narasimha

Our next destination was Melkote. Melkote in Mandya district of Karnataka is a sacred place because of the famous Cheluvanarayana Swami temple. It is built on a hilly rock called Yadugiri. Vairamudi, an annual festival brings lakhs of people together, where The Lord adorned with a diamond studded crown in brought in procession over the golden Garuda. On top of the hill is Yoganarasimha temple. It is believed that Rama, Krishna and Balarama worshipped here at different time zones.

Just after darshan, we found a nice spot nearby. Did some photoshoot before continuing the journey.

From there we headed to Mysore palace. Its a feast to watch the palace. One never gets tired to see the grandeur of Mysore. 

Infront of Mysore Palace

I was eager to visit Chamundi hills and temple since a long time. Finally the time had come. Chamundi hills is about 1065 meters above the sea level. On the top of the hill is the Chamundeshwari temple which dates back to 11th century. The temple is dedicated to Chamundeshwari, the titular diety of Mysore Royal family.

Nandi, Lord Shiva’s Bull, a monolith is found at the 800th step on the hill. It is over 15feet high and 24 feet long.
With this we ended visiting all places we had planned. On our way back with the cuves of the hill, could watch a beautiful view of the Mysore city from top and especially the Palace with its lightings.
Thankfully rains did not hinder our journey at all.
