Know Me!!!

IMG_3443

Hello peeps. It’s my first blogversary!!! First I would like to thank all my readers for their unconditional love and support. I really appreciate all of you!

Now since it’s my Blogversary I kept on wondering what I should do today or more like what I should blog about today! So I went on a limb and decided to answer questions about me. I emailed/Whatsapp’d and also put a Facebook status asking people for their questions and I got a lot of questions via Whatsapp so am gonna answer 25 questions in  all.

  1. You are such a happy and exuberant person, what is the secret of that?

IMG_3418

A. This is one of my most favorite question and there are several reasons for my happiness. First I am happy because I believe in living in the present, there are a lot of mistakes in my past too but I learn from them and move on. I don’t allow them to shadow my present and future. Another thing which makes me happy is that I believe a lot, I believe that we are all a part of  a great story happening and everyone is going to get their happy share so why to be sad and glum for all that is temporary as something beautiful waits for you round the corner so take a leap and fly. And lastly keep smiling and never give up!!!

2. Do you believe in God?

IMG_1246

A. YES!!! Firstly when I look around at the trees,the birds,the sky, the sea and of course all of us human beings it’s impossible to believe that one person could create such beauty but in truth that is what happened and a mere human cannot do all of this alone so yes the one who created our beautiful universe is God! Secondly I have experienced God all of those times when I couldn’t pull through and I did because of my faith in him I have actually seen him next to me supporting me,pushing me to get to that safety net and that finishing line. Thirdly all religions and religious scriptures direct us to connect with humanity and that is a principle I live on so if God has said that then of course I believe in him!

3. A cause which is very close to my heart?

image1 (10)

A. There are many causes which are close to my heart but the most closest one is FEMINISM. I feel that it’s a right of every person born on this earth to study, work and more importantly live the way they want to. There should not be any gender bias when it comes to education, pay and work. I would really love to see men and women walk together as equals!

4. My take on fashion?

IMG_2541

A. Fashion is what you feel comfortable in. I never copy anyone’s style, yes I get inspired by celebrities like Emma Watson, Blake Lively and Sonam Kapoor but I never copy them. You should create your own style. When dressing up Comfort is the most important aspect for me!

20. When were you heartbroken the most?

A. I have been truly heartbroken only twice. First when my grandfather died. Second time I was heartbroken and felt stabbed when certain people made my relationship with my ex their ego issue and it put a terrible strain on me and my relationship. I never thought the ones I love will hurt me so much but they did. Any way I am going to take that also as a learning experience and now I know who my true allies are 🙂 .

21. Whom do I love the most?

IMG_2659

A. I love all of my friends and some of my relatives too 😉 but the people I love most are Virat Kohli, My Parents, My Sister and Arinjai ❤ !

22. Why do I love Virat Kohli?

IMG_2540

A. This was the most interesting question. Have you ever questioned why you love your parents? No you haven’t, same is my case. I cannot question why I love him, it’s natural for me it goes with living life. I myself don’t know when,how and why I fell in love with him. It’s a very huge and important part of my life.It’s like his love is tattooed on my heart. He is the reason I wake up in the morning and falling in love with him is the best thing that has ever happened to me.

23. You say you love Virat so much would you throw yourself in front of a bus to save him?

IMG_2662

A. YES,YES & A 1000 TIMES YES. I would throw myself in front of a bus, walk on coals, give that floating plank in a sea, pitch myself off a tower to save Virat Kohli! And this is not just because of the love I feel for him it’s because I am selfish and my entire world revolves around him, there is no world for me if there is no Virat in that world and so for my existence Virat needs to exist too!

24. Where did I learn Tarot from?

image1 (14)

A. I did not learn Tarot from any teacher or classes. My friend gifted me an Oracle Deck and we started doing it together as we were Indigo Children we quickly learnt the art ourselves!

25. What do I love most about life?

20-1424416837-virat-kohli-600

A. I love life itself and yes of course VIRAT KOHLI too!!!

Gold is not Old it is Beautiful and Bold

image3 (4)

I am a very impatient person, so indeed when I purchase something new I just cannot wait to start flaunting it. Such was my last week, I went on a statement jewelry shopping spree and came with my hands full.

There is something about the colour Golden which attracts me a lot when it comes to jewelry and I am the last person you will see sporting white gold! The baubles in the above picture were styled and carried by me on the very same day. Yes they looked classic and sexy and no I did not attend a wedding. I had styled myself for a dinner!!

Step one was choosing a basic dress. Since it was Independence Day I wanted to wear something colourful and that is the reason why I chose this dress. It’s a very simple dress in Brown,Orange and Green colour. The belt is an addition, it does not come with the dress, I just wanted add some spunk and flash to an old outfit. Wearing a simple outfit when you have blingy accessories is very important. The most you can experiment is with the colouring. Wear an outfit with 2-3 colours if plain is not your style.

I have a carried a basic LV purse as since I was heading out for dinner I just needed to carry my keys and my to go thing i.e. compact and lipstick which easily fit into this beauty. The colour of the purse is also very important. We do not want to carry those flashy clutches,let the jewelry make a statement 😉 . I chose my favourite to go peep toes in a shade of beige and mustard. Please make sure to not wear gold sandals when flaunting too many baubles.

Now getting to my best and most favourite part of this look. As I was wearing a dress with a prominent neckline I chose a statement necklace. This beauty is a cluttered collection of Gold Maple Leaves which dominates my neckline prominently. You can also try a gold rope necklace for a similar outfit. Now the basic question why not any statement necklace and why the gold one? Well since I was wearing a basic outfit with no detailing or work, the gold adds a spunk to the otherwise bland look, a statement necklace in co-ordination with your outfit colour will look good but my objective is to always STAND OUT.

The round earrings collided perfectly with the Maple Leaves. Also next to the necklace they look like beautiful about to bloom buds. Never ever wear tassels when you wear a prominent gold neckpiece as it will look too flashy. If you want to go for some function/party and want to wear tassels then choose earrings in accordance with your outfit colour with just a dash of gold, this will look nice on your outfit and you get a hint of gold too!!!

Handcuffs are very much in vogue now-a-days and choosing the right one is almost as important as deciding if or not to wear that LBD again. I chose this one for the Gold colour and the brilliant red floral detailing. Another reason for choosing this particular one was because the floral theme of the cuff matched my necklace. It’s almost fitting to match leaves and flowers 🙂 .

Now below is the fun part ❤

I love playing with open backs and here is what I did I styled my regular flower pendant and put it at the back instead of front. This will definitely turn those heads!!!

I played with my lip shades a bit. A red colour loyalist generally but this time I went with the autumn theme and went for Coral Lips. In the above image I have used Maybelline Colour Show Orange Icon Lipstick and Lancome Gloss in Love Coral Shade. On my face I have used my regular MAC Studio Fix Compact.

And here is how it looked with red lips!!!

This is how I had styled my hair. Since I was having a bad hair day I kept it at one side for sometime and then little on both sides but you can try a ponytail too.

Well that is it for all gold lovers out there. Be bold and be beautiful!!!

Love
