“I have been there”, said the wind.

“I have seen those alleys, those rooms.

Some lavish enough to be enamored by, and some… forbidden.

The smell, some people call fragrance, I have felt it.

But it is not for me.

I am born to be free.

To flow, to grow, and then die gracefully with time, still free.”

Travel Diaries


He picked a brown dusty sketch book from the old wobbly table in the storage of his apartment. The cover, now almost black, was ripped at the upper corner. With nostalgia crowding his heart, he slowly opened the book. The once smooth and snow white pages of the book had now turned grainy and yellowish from years of sitting idle under the pile of old documents and bills. While ink at some places was smudged due to water, the pictures glued inside the book had started fading and coming loose, just like his old dreams.
He still remembered the day he first saw an advertisement of serene green Ocean and clear Blue sky of Bahamas. As a 7 year old, the colors fascinated him and the absence of city chaos made him crave the place. That was the moment that planted the seed of becoming a traveler in his mind; Bahamas was the first picture he glued into his new travel diary, and beside it he wrote ‘First stop of my Journey’. Whenever he would see any place he liked, he would search the pictures and paste it in his travel book. He watched the travel shows and always dreamed of visiting all those places.
As he grew, so did his willingness to travel. But as he grew so did his responsibilities. His inner child got caught in the middle of earning for a living and earning for his soul. The job he was doing gave him an amazing life. He could go to expensive restaurants, splurge on anything that he wanted. But the thing this job was unable to provide him was happiness and the satisfaction he always craved for. He always tried to engross himself into work, but the feeling of something missing in his life never left him. Whenever he saw a destination he once craved to visit, his heart would ache. The pain that he won’t be able to do the things he always dreamed of just grew. But as the time passed, the feeling of wishing to visit those places reached their threshold and then slowly faded away, leaving a deep dark hollow inside his heart.
Finding his diary had brought back all those memories and had started a whirlpool of emotions inside him. It reminded him how much he loved traveling, how much he loved exploring. He wanted to feel that again. He wanted to feel the adventure of going to an unknown place, he wanted to know the people, their cuisines, their dance forms, their art, their way of life, and he wanted to know everything he could that would fill his soul.
And then there was a sudden realization, although he could afford all the things he wanted, he actually never really wanted those. He would work and reach great heights, but his thirst for exploring the unknown would never be quenched. He would never be at peace, ever. So what was the point of all this? Working on the things he never liked and working for the life he never wanted. The thought of wasting his life brought an uneasy feeling into his heart, he felt helpless and suffocated. He can’t be doing this; he should not be doing this. Period.
It had been a month since that moment. He was today taking his first flight. His new life was just one decision away from him and the first stop of his journey was just one flight away. His travel diary was just about to begin.

P.S: Picture from Etsy



He waited on an almost empty platform with a tag in his hand. It was 4 P.M.

His blue eyes waiting for his companion, his soul mate.

It was told to him,

his friend was going to come back from the farm,

his friend was to be the passenger on this train.

Why did his friend go to a farm was something this 4 year old could never understand.

It has been a month…

His furry little friend was not on this train even today.

He does not want to come back, the farm must be pretty awesome. But maybe tomorrow he will.

He took his little feet back to his home.. wishing his friend will be back tomorrow.


Impression – In 6 Lines

He saw her clumsily climb down the stairs, unable to handle her dress and spilling the ice cream all over.

“Poor guy her husband, he will have to handle a lot of mess”, he thought while looking at her in a friend’s wedding.

8 months later his wedding woes read

“I am looking forward to our messy future and melting ice creams together.”

The only wedding he was more thankful for is the one he saw her in.

First Impressions are not always the last ones. 🙂




He waited in the empty corridor, reminiscing those days

He could see her smiling from behind the pillar, dressed in her pink dress, waving at him

He saw her twirling around the hallway, singing and dancing, not caring about the world.

But the feeling was temporary, as he felt a hand on his shoulder..

His amazing wife, now wrinkled, but still beautiful..

calling him to say bye to his daughter on her wedding day.

But how could he say bye?

For him, she was still his baby, who twirling in the hallway just a little while ago…


Bitter – Sweet


“Always weak, never strong enough.

Always so inconsistent, so bitter. How does no one complain? If he could, he would fire that chef.”

He complained to himself…

But then he saw her,

and the coffee he was complaining about, well, it became his new favorite..

Now coffee was not the reason he visited this coffee shop, the chef was… 🙂

Styling 3 Tops

Hello All !

A very happy Monday to you 🙂 Its been so long I posted on style. I  have been meaning to show you my recent purchases and how I styled them for some time now, but never actually got around to shooting the pictures. I finally got few today, so here we go..

Harpa Orange Top

My first top is by a brand called Harpa. It photographs coral, but it’s actually orange. It’s been few days since I bought the top and have fallen absolutely in love with this one. I love the bright Orange color, the cut is nice, its has a beautiful V-neck and is a little longer in the back than that of in the front. The material is 100% polyester, and feels so good against the skin.


Harpa Women’s Body Blouse Shirt

You can pair it up with White or Black Denims and cute pair of bellies for a day out, or white shorts with a pair of flip-flops for beach, and it would look super cute. You can also dress it up with a cropped jacket and a pair of trousers for office and it would look super Cute. The same top is also present in Black and Yellow. I already have the black one, and I am thinking of buying it in yellow too 😛

Ginger White Crop Top

My second top is by Ginger and its a crop top. It is a little creased over here but I promise it looks lovely when ironed 😉 . I love the tropical print over it. It has spaghetti straps and is perfect for a beach day along with a pair of blue or white shorts.  


Ginger White Top

I also wore this to office paired with a navy long shrug and grey bellies and it totally went.

Tom Tailor Green Top

This full sleeves green top by Tom Tailor is super classy. The fabric is soft and the boat neck and long sleeves make it look cuter. It also had a tie know on the left side to fasten it, which makes the top stand out.


Tom Tailor Green top

I paired this top with black denims for casual Friday. This top is also available in Grey. I tried to find it online, but guess it is sold out. So I have linked the similar one above.

Hope you liked today’s post. Feel free to leave a comment. 🙂
