I'm my own Gold

Hello people

How many times have you dropped down low, gotten up; only to be disappointed again? Many a times it so happens that we digest are pain either by enjoying it or accepting that it is a part of life and when we do so, we hope for so much more than we were hoping before but fail to realize that we need double the energy now lest we fail again. Each time you try the same thing, do so with more efforts and more positivity. We fail to realize the impact, positive thoughts have on our daily lives. Take for e.g. showering. You enter into the shower, put soap then rise, dry yourself and come out. This is a normal routine for most of us. On another note- imagine that you get up with a smile and remind yourself to give your best today no matter what. Now with these happy thoughts, you enter into the shower and do everything mentioned above. The only difference being, you are either singing, dancing or smiling or doing everything at once. Do not tell me this never happens! Try it, you will be surprised as to how your day changes :)

So when this little cutie came to me, I was just extremely happy to be having something Gold that I do not have to wear it on my wrist/neck/ears. I'm not very fond of Gold: more-so, golden! Zaful has just what makes me happy. I'm so happy with their products and service that it's almost an addiction to check their website time and again. For now, you should go and check them out.

Overall; it's good!

Hey peeps

 

These words, mean everything! I mean look at people around you. Eighty percent of them do not want you to be happy, fall in love or travel freely because they couldn't or can't. They want you to live your life the way they had even if they had promised themselves that they will treat you differently than how their loved ones treated them. And I'm talking about those who matter to you. Those who don't, needn't be the steering in your drive :)

I've always been positive, determined and hard working throughout my life. When things pull me down, I quickly think of 2-3 things that instantly distract me and do them! Distracting is good. Distracting doesn't mean you are ignoring your feelings or thoughts. It means that if the thoughts were important or would do you any good then they will jump right up in your happier times. I've decided that whenever things affect me on conditions that I can' do anything about it: then I just try to live each day, one day at a time; one step at a time :)

So winters are finally here in Delhi and I couldn't be more sad. I mean I hate winters, that's true but they just make morinings all the more difficult. I wore this woolen sleeveless top underneath my overalls that I received from Fashionmia.com. The combination was so killer that everybody commented two things

- Aren't you cold?
- Wow! You look great!

When people you don't talk to often, say this; it means something doesn't it?
Also, No I wasn't cold because this top from 8th grade (yes I'm still tiny and I save) is so warm that I was actually sweating all day with red cheeks!
Enjoy the post and let me know if you want to see anything different in the way I post-look-blog interface: anything!

The Aisle


Call me crazy but I'm counting the number of friends (on Facebook) that are getting engaged/married. Of my 500 friend list, get this; 58 are settled down! This is the number whom I've shared a laughter with during the course of my life. Isn't that a lot? Have you ever done such a (stupid?) thing? Tell me your number in the comments below ;)

Speaking of something beautiful and worth sharing on social media is Prom Night! Well, being in India and a fan of Hollywood, I've felt both jealous and dreamy thinking about such an event hosted at school premises!


Firstly, the only time we wear gowns are at a friend's wedding or our own cocktail party. Secondly, it happens so early in life that we get to act adult which we always wanted as a school kid and look extremely beautiful or handsome at our best. So when I found this website where you can customize your gown or filter on the basis of silhouette, hemline and neckline: I was playing around the fields to get a perfect one.


While all is good an said; the one baggage we cannot seem to remove is the 'price-tag'. Now, with the advent of shopping websites which are at once selling similar gowns without any surety of the fit or WYSIWYG, you will be confused! So I found the filtering option works best for me. The price tag is no longer an issue since they sell cheap prom dresses with the quality quite remarkable on the looks of it. Ofcourse if you are still unsure, you can always contact the customer care.

What are your thoughts? Any exciting prom stories to share? I'd be so happy to read them :)

Yellow: Singapore

I was thinking ideas of my next post and that's when it hit me; I haven't shown you guys pictures of my trip to Singapore. The reason is also very clear- that was the time when I became an instagrammer. The only reason why I had an account and didn't post pictures regularly was because I didn't have any! Come Singapore and I had hundreds. So here you go: part 1 of the many posts that you will see on my blog every now and then.

On our way to Gardens by the Bay
Singapore is such an incredible place to have a vacation in; I know now. One day we were sitting at home and I came across this post about cheap destinations (flight) from India. While Singapore isn't really that cheap but it came last in the list. I happened to just check the prices of flight and made a list of places we can go to, in descending order. I pitched (yes pitched) the idea to my dad and he asked me to check hotel prices of Singapore. By evening, I was checking what one can do in Singapore and the price attached to it. Within a week of it, I was planning itinerary! The thing about planning and akanksha is that, we can never go wrong. I love planning so this was like my very own baby. I planned each and every hour with back-up places to visit so that we can utilize maximum from the 4-day trip. We had so much fun you guys so if anyone needs an itinerary/tips for Singapore then let me know. I promise I won't charge a penny ;)
