START

Have you ever thought why is the start always the most difficult part? Like starting a new job, getting in the habit of reading a book, learning something new, starting a business, doing something you love & more. The thought of starting something new is always so fearful, like it will take you a year to contemplate on doing something & just two minutes to actually do it. What would happen if you just do it without thinking? Well, even I don’t have an answer to that, but I have something else that might help. So think of that one…

My Amul Story

This one’s a little cute & also close to my heart.   When I was a kid my Mom always showed me the Parle-G packet & told me that the girl on the packet was me. And obviously as a child you believed almost everything that your parents would tell you. It used to make me feel so nice, every time, when I looked at it on posters/ads or even while eating the biscuit, on the biscuit packet. The major reason I believed my Mom was because I had the same hairstyle as the Parle-G biscuit & Amul girl &…

School Shoes

I think I’m living life backwards & I’m totally digging it, I mean who wouldn’t want to do that right? Going back to being a child? The idea itself is so fascinating. But what I mean by going backwards is, in style. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would want to wear school shoes after school. I mean, I basically wore school shoes for 10 years of my life, so why would I want to wear it again? I’ll tell you why, firstly because they look damn cool when you pair it with the right thing & second…

Inside Out

Today’s look is as catchy as the “headline”. As they say “good things take time”, but that doesn’t mean the good thing has to be something huge it can be just as small as this look I created today. You know how I find these random clothes under my bed & even in my cupboard sometimes?  So this time I bumped into this cute nightwear which is baby pink in colour & has sweet details on top. After contemplating for a few days I came to a conclusion that I just can’t wear this at home or to sleep, it…

2018

It’s 31st Dec 2018, 31st Dec 2018, 1.29 am to be precise. I’m lying on my bed, wondering if I should really write this blog post or it is too late? But then better late than never. Let’s start by telling you a fact since it’s the last day of the year. I don’t believe in the whole New Year resolution thing because I don’t think we need a certain date/time to make any kinda changes in ourselves. I’m someone who sets my goals, whenever I feel like or whenever I think I need to do something. Well, this post isn’t…

Scrap To Fab With Doodlage

This is the most excited I’ve ever been while writing a blog post & I’m sure you’re going to be too, after reading this. But before that, let me tell you a story. Since the time I was a kid, I always loved dressing up differently and wearing my friends or cousin’s clothes. I treated their cupboard like my own & that continued as we grew up haha. What’s more interesting is that whenever their parents would ask them to clean their cupboard I would sit & help them clean it (now you’re probably wondering how nice of a friend/cousin…

Long Weekend Getaway – Part 2

DAY 2 Sydney Point Now comes the most exciting part, actually one of the major reasons why I wanted to visit Panchgani so bad “Cycling”. The next day we went cycling early morning to Sydney point to experience the beautiful sunrise. Though the weather was a bit cloudy & we didn’t experience the typical sunrise from Sydney point, we definitely had some fun time cycling & clicked way too many pictures while returning back to Zostel. Once we reached Zostel, all I could think about was breakfast. They served poha, coffee, conrflakes, omelette & toast, what more could a perfect breakfast look like? (Om nom…

Long Weekend Getaway – On A Budget

Do all your trips go as you planned? Well, my initial answer would have been “No!”. But this time, it actually did go the way I planned it & also took a little help from my friend who’s already been to Panchagani. I realised that I need a break from the usual routine & work, just like everyone else does. But it was at a point where I could just tag along with anyone who was planning on going for a vacation (I just needed a vacay that bad). I didn’t wanna plan much or ask too many people because you…

Co-Ords With Besiva

I’ve been wanting some cool coordinates since quite some time now, but I never ended up finding a good one. For some reason, I always thought that if I would buy a coordinate piece, it would be a pantsuit. Well, this one’s not a pantsuit though, but I’m not complaining because this not only gives me a little pantsuit vibe but is also comfortable & chic at the same time. There were different print in the coordinate section on Besiva site including some basics, checks, polka dots & stripes (and stripes obviously grabbed my attention). Stripes are something that can never go…

Happy Diwali

You know what’s so special about this blog today other than Diwali? I shot, edited & wrote this blog today itself. Well, I never do things last minute because I’m that type of a person who likes to plan & keep things ready a week or ten days before. But unfortunately this couldn’t happen for this look, for too many reasons. First being I wasn’t really well the whole week (I think half of the people I know weren’t well last week) I guess it’s the Mumbai weather & second because it wasn’t getting scheduled at the right time. I…
