Mumbai-based model and actor DIPANNITA SHARMA shares her cool summer plans
I am not doing anything special for summer in fact this time. My mom, dad, sister, brother-in-law alongwith my one-year-old nephew decided to spend their holidays with me! So I am playing host to my family who’s holidaying in Mumbai and staying with me and it’s been wonderful spending this summer with them.
Moreover I am busy with my table tennis team and working towards the upcoming #MSL (Mumbai Super League). The tournament is on the 20th and 21st of June so I literally can’t move from Mumbai. I am really looking forward to the rains as I do every year and post the tournament if I get a breather I might take an impromptu trip out of town with hubby and family but as of now my plans this summer is just work.
I have been keeping my outfits as breezy as possible – easy pants, shirts, shorts, long/knee length dresses. Cottons, linens and cool colours are my favourites in the summer especially in a weather like that of Mumbai. Shoes must always be easy slip-ons for me during this time.
The need to gorge on fresh fruits has increased. I find my hot meals intake is smaller because I would rather have a big bowl of curd – brown rice with brown sugar and keep the main meal small.That’s a lot more appetising and turns out to be a healthy option in this weather. Besides, I prefer to have a lot of juices and water to keep myself hydrated.
