Fun Saturdays Vol.64 : 5 Random Things

 

 

Fun Saturdays

Fun Saturdays

 

 

1. What are up to this weekend?

I read a book last night (after a long time) and it was really good. The novel is called Marching to Zion, its a tragic love story of a Black man and a white Jewish woman set in the early 1900s in America. The story spans the lives of the many characters across a few years, through some troubling times of riots, depression, floods and its very well written (I finished it in one sitting!). Recommended!

 

 

2. A beauty brand you would like to try next?

Makeup Geek!! I have heard so much about their products and been thinking of trying it since ages! Must place an order soon. Have any of you tried their products? I am eyeing the eye shadows and pigments, any recommendations?

 

 

3. If you had to give up one color for life, which one would you give up?

We are talking strictly clothes here. Even so, it is difficult to choose! I think I would go with green. Its the color I wear the least and I only like a certain tone of green. I almost said brown but then I wouldn’t want to give up tan, beige and the whole family of neutrals!

 

 

4. What is your first thought when you wake up?

My first thought when I wake up is what time is it?! 

 

 

5. What is the meaning of your name?

Ankita is derived from Ankit which means marked or engraved. There are different ways to interpret names. I remember my mother giving me a very nice explanation of my name when I was younger – someone who leaves a imprint of her personality on everyone she meets!

 

 

[note color=”#FFEACA”] I tag all of you to answer the questions in this post :
