My Way of Celebrating New Year

pf-3046160_960_720

Finally New year is here, and there are tons of ways to celebrate new year’s eve. You could go to a nice pub or a disc, and drink and dance your hearts out. Or you go to a fancy restaurant and have a nice meal. But, if you have known me for a while, you know I am not the partying kind.

I would rather go to a nice calm place, with just the people I love, or just stay at home and ring-in the new year with them.

One of my new year’s resolutions is to stop trying to fit-in, and to stop doing what other people think is cool.

So this new year’s eve, I am going to stay home, have a cup of coffee in my one hand, and a book in my other hand, and welcome the new year. Yes, maybe i am boring. But you got to enjoy every moment, irrespective of where you are. And that is what I am going to do! 🙂

Happy New Year everyone! 🙂 🙂

Confess

Confess

The days, long and dragging. Sometimes dark, and sometimes harsh. Where am I? Why am I here? The question sits in the dark corner, staring at me. His legs folded, his chin on his knees, hands folded on his knees, and eyes continuously staring at me. Questioning as to what am I doing? I look intently at him. Unable to process what is happening.

Am I here to Confess my sins? But who am I? Why do I not remember?

I see the question coming closer, and closer. My heartbeat raising with his each step towards me. What is happening? Why am I unable to move?

I am scared. I do not want to be scarred.

He is moving towards me, he is taking his final step towards me. I feel his hands raising to touch me.

I am scared. I don’t want to face this now. No. No. Noooo!!!!!

Treating Myself with Next

Do you ever feel like Shopping is what you were born to do? Like you were made to shop? Well, I feel that very often. Never has a time come when I said no to shopping. It’s a therapy for me. I shop to celebrate and I shop to cure. 🙂 Haha! Yup. That is the truth.

I recently saw some amazing collections online that I am waiting to buy. Believe me on this, the collections are not to be missed out on, because nothing haunts you like the dress that you didn’t buy 😉

I have my eye on quite a few things.  am linking few of those items in today’s list. Here we go!

Next Checked Shirt

I have had my eye on this shirt since quite some time now. It is made of Cotton and the colour looks so pretty. A perfect one for the Mumbai heat.

Next Checked Shirt

I am planning to wear this with Black UCB leggins, listed here, and flats for office, but you can pair this shirt with white jeans, a white cap, and nude flats for a casual laid-back day out. With Christmas just around the corner, it would be so cool to wear this shirt with white shorts and a floppy hat on the beach. Totally chic.

Next V-neck Black Sweater

This sweater gives such sporty vibe. Since there are no winters in Mumbai, I am always skeptical while ordering sweaters. Of-course, the office temperatures are always freezing, and usually a jacket does its work. But I am planning on having a few options for the days where it does get a little chilly outside too.

This sweater will look great with white shorts or even white jeans and some black sneakers. Wear a watch and that is all you need to look super causal and stay super comfy in this outfit.

Next V-neck Red Sweater

This sweater had me at hello. It looks so stunning. The bright colour, the pattern, and most important thing for me, the long sleeves, cannot beat this combination.

Next V-neck Red Sweater

I love how the sweater has a little looser look at the waist. While the colour still keeps it dressy, the looser fit gives your outfit a causal vibe. I am planning to pair this with Black UCB leggins, probably a Black scarf, which I will have to buy ;-), a pair of Black sneakers, and my lovely sunglasses. Ah, can’t wait for it.

That is all for today. I do have some more items in my wishlist. I will think over them and post them soon. Till then, keep smiling, and keep shopping! 🙂

Jolly

Alone and jolly? or with everyone and sad?

You can never be sure.

It is scary, it is confusing.

You choose to be alone and jolly, and you fear about no-one being there for you later.

You choose to be with everyone, just for the sake of it, for the fear of it, and you will never be happy.

No matter what you choose, there will be ‘what-ifs’.

It is a constant struggle, a constant state of confusion. You just have to live with it.

That is Life.

Forever New, You Amaze Me!

Don’t you love it when you go to the mall and absolutely love all of the items you see? That is what is happening with me now-a-days. The only difference here is I am in love with the collections available online. Yes, Myntra and Jabong. These are my happy places. 🙂 I just love the collections the brands are coming up with, and I cannot stop shopping.

I had quite a few things short-listed since last few days. Hoping, praying that they become available in my size, and finally it happened. I see them available in my size, and I order them without wasting another thought. Following are the few items I had my eye on. I finally bit the bullet and ordered them all. 🙂

Forever New Light Grey Textured Blouse

This light grey top is perfect for both winters and summers. I love the long sleeve and the double texture it has. You can wear it with a Light-Blue Jeans and a white Striped Scarf. It would be perfect attire for the not-so-chilly winters of Mumbai. Also, you can pair them with suede boots or with normal sandals, and it would look really beautiful.

Forever New Olive Embroidered Strappy Top

The solid Olive colour of this top looks so chic. I am planning to wear it with my Black UCB Leggins, flats, and a leather jacket. You could try and tie you hair in a high-pony and it would totally go with this attire. You can also pair a scarf with this top, preferably a light one, and it will look very put-together.

Forever New Women White Solid Cinched Waist Top
Forever New Women White Solid Cinched Waist Top

This top is the highlight of my shopping. The full sleeves, the colour, the fit, and most importantly, the cinched waist. Cinched waist is something I loved the most in this top. It is a polyester top so I don’t have to worry about ironing it as much. Since it is a White top, you can play around with it a little bit. A mint skinny jeans and a matching necklace will surely brighten this outfit. You can also pair them with flats and trousers and look chic for your office. 🙂

I do have few other items that I am still deciding upon. But I will only order them once these ones arrive.

Hope you like today’s post. Keep shopping! 🙂

Promod! Can’t Rave Enough about it!

Have you ever looked at a brand and felt like this collection is made for you? Well, this is what happened to me when I looked at Promod Collection on Myntra. I had never known this brand before, but I am glad Myntra introduced it, because I am in love.

I love almost all the tops from this brand, but god, do they sell out fast. I have only a single top from this collection and I wear it every week. It is nice and bright, very soft, and can be hand washed. Perfect! It has a lot of colours, but the contrast is maintained very intelligently. Kudos to the designer!

I am listing the ones I love in this post. But the collection keeps updating, so I suggest you keep an eye on it.

Multicoloured Printed Top | Magenta Self-design Top | Olive Green Self-design Top | Red Printed Semi Sheer Top | Red Printed Top | White Printed Top |Green Printed Top

I have the Red Printed Top listed above from this collection and it is lovely. I paired it the first time with Kraus Black slim-fit jeans and sandals , and the second time with Navy Blue UCB Jeggins and sneakers, and it worked great both the times.

It is a great casual top to wear to office on a Friday, and now that a long weekend is just around the corner, this could be a perfect beach or a day-out top with your friends.

Hope you found today’s post useful.

Keep Shopping! 🙂

P.S: This is not a sponsored post. All the images are from Myntra.

Nest

I am all entangled in the mess of life.

I have tried and tried, but nothing could get me out.

The water running from my eyes is not ready to stop.

How did I get in the mess, why did I get in the mess…

I am nested in the web of life, and it seems like I may never get out.

But I am hoping, I am desperately hoping for the light at the end of this tunnel,

The light that would get me out; out of this daze, out of this maze

…for I know, there has always been one.
