Fashion 101

Ok girls, this article is for you! I am not a fashionista by any stretch of imagination. In fact, most of the time, I am quite clueless as to what clothes would be flattering on me! There have been plenty of instances where my dress etiquette has been downright sloppy. However, off late, I am more conscious while shopping and make a lot more effort to pick out clothes, shoes and accessories that are fashionable while being comfortable at the same time. I think it is important to look good. It isn't about being materialistic.....it is just taking the time to look after yourself. After all, our choice of clothing does reflect our state of mind, attitude and thoughts towards a particular event, person or activity. Don't you agree? We always look at celebrities and envy them for their flawless appearance, slender figure and fabulous wardrobe but isn't it their job to look good?! They have the best fitness trainers, dieticians, beauticians, stylists and designers at their beck and call so its no wonder that they manage to look gorgeous all the time. For regular women with careers, families and countless other responsibilities, it is much harder. But with the adequate fashion know-how, you and me can look just as good minus the celebrity tag!

To my mom....on Mother's day



"A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie" 
                                                  
                                                       ~ Tenneva Jordan

I love this quote because it is so typical of my mom! Only a mother can exhibit such selflessness. I think it comes as a default trait with the whole "mom" package! I think celebrating mother's day on one day of the year does absolutely no justice to what they do for us on a day to day basis. I can honestly say that my relationship with my mother is one of the most significant relationships I have in my life. On this mother's day I thought I'd write about all the things I love and appreciate about my mom.

Mom, this is why I am grateful that you are my mother...

My bucket list - 101 things I want to do before I die...


"Life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans"
                                                      -John Lennon


This week I decided to prepare a bucket list of 101 things I want to do...before I kick the bucket! As morbid as that sounds, I thought I'd better make this list when I'm still in my 20's so I'd still have plenty of time to go about completing it. It's actually kinda fun! I don't think anything on my list is impossible to achieve and even if it does seem that way, I'm hoping that it would motivate me even more to complete it
