OOTD: Going traditional

Written by Jiny on .


I recently wrote about a Accharya Abishekam in which my family and I participated. As you know, I think sarees a so beautiful, but I’m never that much comfy in wearing them. Or yes, I AM comfy but I feel so old – I’m very young in mind, you know :P

Anyways, the day before I was very confused about what to wear, and my mum was definitely not happy that I was going to wear a very simple salwar khameez. So I immediately changed my mind and picked up this beautiful tri-green colours saree. As this one’s blouse has the same colours I did not stitch the blouse for it, and have decided to wear a pink blouse for get some contrasting that will pep the whole suit up. I should’ve worn this saree for the Thaer festival last year in Herning, and I had pleated it and stitched it as a “lehenga”, but still never managed to wear it properly, so I wore another one instead. So I was actually wearing this green saree for the first time. The material is cotton, and if you’ve not pleated this material weel you’ll definitely mess it up! The pink blouse was in a poly silk-cotton combo material.

This is what I wore:


                                             Saree - From London, UK

  Blouse - material bought with another saree, SS Ornament. Sticthed by my mum and I

                                   Earrings - SS Ornaments, Netherlands

                                     Bangles - Mylapore, Chennai, India

                                             Ring - Dyrberg/Kern, DK

Here’re some close ups of the saree blouse – stitched by my mum and I. I made the crocheting part in golden yarn and adding some pearls, and the piping on the blouse. The blouse was made last year for the Temple festival.


Adding some more pearls too it in contrasting colours too ;)


Picture while wearing the saree. The saree has the colours turquoise, teal green and light teal. Combined with contrasting pink the highlights the green shades :)


And of course some snaphat selfies :P





Good night lovelies ;)

Go herbal, eat clean

Summertime means fruit time! I love eating fruits, especially berries – they’re so incredibly yummy! Can eat them all day, and of course strawberries and blueberries are my faves :) This weekend was full of loads of activity, and while coming home I felt like eating berries. My friend and I went to the nearest coop where I found a package of berries mix, containing strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. Yum!

I’m almost 100% against medications and other kinds of drugs. Even in my case they failed, but then Ayurveda (YES!!) herbs helped me to control body and to get a normal, PCOS-free life. Unbelievable, right? However, it’s true. This doesn’t mean I hate doctors, I respect them. But still I'm definitely not in to the use of medications, that cause more side effects than benefits.

Time to party, it's summer

Living alone is not that simple, if you’re the type that loves to be surrounded by many. I’ve been living alone the past 7 years (OMG!), and I still remember how difficult it was in the beginning. Moving to a new place, where you don’t have any friends, and start to create a new network of friends was not that easy. I actually had difficulties in making friends, and I still have. However, by time I learned to make it, and now have friends in many places ;)

I really enjoy spending time with people and have fun. I know many describe me as crazy, but that’s how I am :P What’s life without fun ;)

Okay – yesterday we had the “summer party” at my work, and I was in this “party committee”/planning group. Unfortunately, I couldn’t be there to all the meetings, as I had patients, but I think I still did a very good job. I suggested kickball if the weather was good – and it did – and as we planned to play bingo, I bought the gifts for this game too, and helped as much as I could.

Here are some pictures from yesterday’s event. It was so much fun, and I guess everyone enjoyed the party. First we started eating cake (I didn’t, as it was Friday), and we then went to the University Park in Aarhus to play kickball. This was funny, and we enjoyed playing and watching each other running after the ball :P Look at my lovely “gold tattoo” btw!






It’s finally summer!! :D

Later we got back “home” and had dinner. I was not that much surprised with the food, as I, being a veggie, could not eat anything but pasta. Hm.. Anyways, I still enjoyed the time with my colleagues ;)




I and 3 other girls later went to the town on another restaurant, and I was back home very late. Was so tired that I immediately fell asleep :P

L and I had planned to catch up with 2 other former study mates today, but unfortunately, it didn’t happen, as one of the girls had to cancel it. So L and I decided to go for a walk, guess we walked about 5 km’s first, and then went to JNTJ to get some lunch and juice. This was so yummy :) We hereafter went for shopping, and I bought some new shoes from TOMS. I like their concept of giving away a pair of shoes to a child in need for every pair purchased. Amazing, isn’t it?




After the shopping we went down the streets and watched people getting ready for the Aarhus Pride and many politicians using this opportunity to get votes :P We walked home, and relaxed for an hour, and then went out for dinner, and walked the way home. I guess we’ve walked about 10-11 km’s today ;)

Now relaxing with a bowl of berries. It’s summer and I’m healthy! :D


Have a great evening! :)

I'm a knowledge junkie, searching my fix

Written by Jiny on .


Past 2 days at work have been very relaxing. I had so much time to complete some papers for the audiology assistant-students and the coming students from the Uni. of Southern DK. In addition, I could make some other stuff ready for those starting tomorrow, and got clarified some doubts by my boss.


It’s been raining almost every day since May, and everyone’s waiting for the summer to come. I hope the weather will be appropriate coming Friday, as we have planned a summer party that day. I’m also a part of this planning team, and yesterday I went to Storcenter Nord for buying some gifts for the games, we’ll be playing at the party. This will actually be the first time I’m participating in a party with colleagues, and I’m looking forward to this one J

I’ve been way too excited about being this kind of “lecturer”/teacher/whatever. I’ve always loved teaching, my life as a teacher actually started many years back – in 2008. Starting at one point as a music teacher in Carnatic music, I’m now here; a special educational lecturer in Audiology. My dream came true, I’m where I thought I would be in 3-4 years. Yes, life is a miracle, and how you use your knowledge, and how you combine it with your talent is an art for itself. Knowing your strength and weakness makes you strong, and changing your weakness into strength is what it’s all about. Now I’m here, I’m exactly where I wanted to be. But as we reach our goals, new aims will be emerging. Creating the path to success is all in your hand ;)

June, here I come :D

May month has been full of unhealthy food (unfortunately :P ), so I’ve put of following aims to be achieved:

  • Training 3 times a week. I didn’t go that much to fitness last month, as I tried some other ways instead. But that was not enough, and I have to lose some weight :P
  • Walking at least 3 or 4 times a week.
  • Eat more of healthy food, and avoid eating out.
  • Spending more time on myself. I know I’ve been so much busy with spending time with others, and work. June and July are definitely going to be some tough months, as I’ll be working long shifts. Nevertheless, this should not prevent me from spending more time on myself ;)
  • Studying Hinduism. I love studying about my religion, and I’ve been posting several articles and smaller posts about Hinduism, that’ll be useful for many. However, I feel like getting away from this, so I have to be back on track, and study something I don’t know, and I have to share whatever I know and learn about Hinduism. Being the daughter of those, who started these “religious activities” in Herning, I feel privileged and happy, that both my parents know so much on religion, language and culture, which I have to share ;) Moreover, my mum teaches Hinduism and Tamil, and I’m happy that both my brother and I learn from her, and of course my dad too.
  • Finally yet importantly, I should avoid spending too much money on diverse stuff.

Let’s see, if all these are going to happen or not :P


Good night lovelies ;)
