An update: My Closet is up for grabs

Hi loves,

Closet SM launched officially a few days ago, and I will be, in this post, laying down a few updates.

I have been asked ad nauseam, why I spend a fortune on clothing, jewellery, shoes and bags for as long as I can remember- why not put that money to Charity Sonal?

Well;

For the last decade, I have been around the world- not like Copernicus of yore – but I have been to places I hitherto admired on Pinterest.

And that has come with its fair share of shopping madness. I have closetfuls of stuff I no longer wear. And I keep getting more.  And will probably keep getting more.

It is stuff that still stands out. Stuff that still kicks. Stuff that Kylie would still rock to DC. Stuff that Sophia Vergara would still rock to Bora Bora. Stuff that Emily Ratajkowski would still rock to the Bahamas.  And stuff that you, my dear reader, can finally own- without breaking bank.

The responses from all of you who have made orders and shared very sweet and thoughtful messages on social media have been overwhelming.

I have gone through each of them. With a big smile on my face.

As we speak, I’m in Mumbai for work. Hauling pots and making sure that the next phase of the Sonal Maherali will be as stellar.

In the meantime, cure your shopping blues by heading over to Closetsm.com where you can pick items off my closet and sonalmaherali.shop   where you can pick out unique pieces from our just launched luxury line.

As always,

Love & Lite

Oh, the tears! My birthday and wedding Anniversary celebration

I celebrated my birthday and my wedding anniversary on Friday, March 15.

And it was terrific to say the least, like a scene straight out of a Christmas movie (Hello Vanessa Hudgens. lol)

I was supposed to be at home all day. I had just flown in from Mumbai a day earlier and was properly frazzled.

I knew the Mister had something up his sleeve of many colors- as usual- but this time, he really caught me off guard.

I had the assumption that we would be going out of town for the weekend, so on Friday, I decided to stay indoors and get my mojo back.

Not even a school errand that morning gave away what the Mister and my house manager were planning behind my back.

I returned to the house a few hours later to a delightful surprise; a bedroom of floating balloons, a cache of gifts that I will be showing you in a few and a smiling manager.

So lets get to it?

Some cute balloons in my closet that made me all teary.

The thing with surprises is that they make you nervous- you know it is coming but you don’t know what to expect, or how to react.

Another batch of balloons floating away at my office.

And on this day, I had not idea what was in store, but again that is the beauty of it all; the candy store effect.

So there is a bunch of flowers for the birthday girl on the bed next to a cache of gifts lying close by..

I have received countless gifts in my life time but this year was special and the timing was right- pun intended- because he got me a Rolex! You guys!

I guess I have an excuse to get fashionably late now?

And because it is not a proper Sonabration without cake, your girl got two because one is too cliché. One for the #39th birthday and the other one for the wedding anniversary because the arduous journey of love and marriage is marred by tempests and endless pitfalls. Haha!

A special cake because your girl has been loving Dior lately

Drum rolls please…

This is by far the most creative cake I have had and the attention to detail is award-worthy.

After I had the time to cry a little and say a prayer for the years past and the many to come, the Mister and I crowned the birthday Sonabration with a special dinner for two.

Oh and for those who were asking, I got to rock my fresh-off-the closet  YSL Opyum sandals- this cute golden dress that made me feel like I was part of a Greek movie and strung my Birkin on my arm for giggles. Lol.
