ahlan masala awards best asian blogger 2015

So I didn’t win the ‘Best Asian Blogger’ title, but am super flattered to be nominated among the top 5 ✌ . Congrats Lokesh Dharmani from the F by Lokesh blog, so very well deserved.

Thank-you Ahlan! Masala for yet another fabulous #masalaawards2015 event, had so much fun! Met one of my favorite Bollywood stars, Simi Garewal (she’s even lovelier in person!) and even had a quick chat with the stunning Jacqueline Fernandes backstage! Oh and that’s me giving away an award for best lounge in Dubai (congrats AKS Nights!). 

The Masala awards makes me feel like a celeb and loved getting a chance to dress up Desi (Indian). Will be posting an outfit post real soon, so stay tuned!

Aquarius magazine is hands down my favorite mag in the UAE. There’s no dearth of women’s lifestyle magazines out there, but Aquarius stays true to real women and continues to feature real, believable people like you and me. The workaholic, the newly wed, the frazzled mother, the homesick expat. Skimming through the pages of Aquarius, you’re sure to find a pick-me-up to keep you going.

I was therefore truly honored to be chosen as a Reader Judge for the magazine’s annual Aquarius Beauty Heroes edition. aquarius beauty heroes 2015 paris gallery

It’s been just over 9 months since I started blogging. The Tezzy Files was created on 4th November 2014 out of the sheer need to write, and has grown to be so much more than that.

I never expected blogging to be so addictive, and here’s the icing on the cake: The Tezzy Files has been nominated by the very prestigious Ahlan! Masala Awards 2015 for ‘Best Blog’!
