What happens after a Heart-Break?

What happens after a heart-break? The stages and the counter-arguments:-

1) The Blame Game- Both of you are upset. You blame each other for your own sufferings. That you are unable to identify yourself. You were a different person when you entered this relationship and now you are this person who is exhausted of giving and expecting, of listening and relenting.



The Argument- Who asked you to change? If you answer, Time changes things I’d give you a piece of my mind! When you were a child, did you blame your parents for making the person you are at that moment? No, right? Then how can an adult, who is matured in all forms, who in his own free-will enters into a relationship with someone compatible (or so it seems) make such an argument? People change with experiences and the self-consuming expectations. Just stop being at the extreme end and start living the present and you’ll see if it is really a change or that you have grown up!



2) Rising to the Occasion- After a few weeks we realize, “I don’t need a guy/girl to make me happy” and you couldn’t be more wrong. You do! You heard me right. Shakespeare didn’t write Romeo’s Prodigy and Self Love. If there wasn’t a Juliet, there won’t be love. More on that later but this is the stage where you are rising from the ashes (pardon the drama), you realize that no one can make you feel less of yourself without your permission. What about ‘making you feel more about yourself’. How can we forget that the very person who hurt you, made you happy too!



The Argument- There are various kinds of happiness in the world. One is where you are content with your life, the job; one is where you are happy with yourself, the inner peace and there’s also one that is most synonymous with Love- relationships. Yes, Love gives us happiness; the one where the ‘Love Hormones’ play a significant role in giving those butterflies in the first few months. Then your compatibility, encouragement, honesty and trust pave road to blessed future events. Like every coin has two sides, getting over someone also teaches you ample of things about yourself.



3) Minor Distractions- This Is the best time, I’d say! It’s that time when you’re figuring out ways to distract yourself. It can be anything from indulging in bubble bath (for how long?) to chocolate syrup savouries (what about calories?) or a shopping spree (I’ve nothing to wear!). In the brackets you’d see your devil talking ;) Everyone has one!


So here’s my argument- Why choose? Why not try everything in minimal amount and see what works best for you. You can turn into this fitness finesse girl or connoisseur of eclectic deserts. Whatever makes you happy, for once, don’t let the other half speak! ;) Oh! And there’s a mid-way too!!!



4) Suitable Match- Your heart is after all, a heart darling! It doesn’t have much to do, except look for its other half. We might get stuck in between being single vs committed but it all comes to this- If you were in a relationship or even came close to it, your heart won’t give up!



Counter argument- It doesn’t have to! Don’t push yourself as to why are you getting this lonely feeling all over again, you’re a strong independent woman. Ofcourse you are! Why can’t you be the same while getting routinely fixed with the Love Doctor? (Okay Bad one!) Find a man who makes you feel wanted even in the bad ass hair days and pays the bill even if you’re filthy rich. It’s not about negotiations, it’s about gestures!



Play along and Get over it soon

My Spring Temptation

Hey girls!

Spring is here and I am just finding all the possible accessory options to create a colorful wardrobe for the season.
Today I’ll talk about few gemstone jewelry options that are perfect to flaunt in spring and summer. I've picked these pieces from Angara.com. Why? It’s because I found the jewelry very elegant and beautiful. They have a vivid and varied collection of fine gemstone pieces that are perfect for all occasions and moods. I like the designs and craftsmanship, and of course the add-on features are awesome for quick and easy shopping.
I’ll first show the pieces I've picked for my spring collection.
The first pick is a cute pair of aquamarine and diamond earrings in heart shape. The alternately set aquamarines and diamonds give an exquisite display of soft sparkle. They are perfect to wear with any dress. I think they will be a cute pick to complete my everyday spring look. I can wear them all day long (and even for night outs). 



The next on my list from Angara is this gorgeous pendant dipped in the beautiful lilac hue. This ‘Ethereal Pendant’ is just like its name – delicate and celestial. I love the finishing of the stone and the dome with tiny diamonds. Isn't it the piece many of you looking for a head-turning look?
Like aqua blue, purple is another promising color for spring and it never fails in creating an iconic style for the season.



I confess that I am obsessed with the stackable ring trend. Luckily, I found perfect collection of sleek and stylish stackable rings. There are numerous choices to select. It was difficult to pick one option; therefore here is a lovely set for some inspiration.


Aren't these designs felt like they are custom-made to suit your style? I was really confused when I was picking these pieces. There was so much to choose. I was impressed with their customization and 0% financing. I mean, who doesn't like to personalize her jewelry and buy it when she has an option for installments without interest.

Tell me in the comments about what you think about the jewelry and those awesome buying features? You can also check more here

Self Love is the Best Love

Hello Lovelies

Today I'll have a heart-to-heart conversation with you all :)


Over the years I’ve learnt one thing, that one thing which was always your’s, never left you and never will in future. It is your Image from your eyes!
You might have heard time and again- “It doesn’t matter how others see you. What matters the most is how you see yourself”. This quote is becoming a fixative in my life. Let’s all think about the following questions for a moment.
Do I see myself as Lion or a Cat? Do I see myself Happy and rejoicing or sad and depressed? Do I see myself as one heck of a crazy talented guy/girl or do I follow others’ footsteps and are too scared to follow the good omens?


Now before you get lost in those thoughts or are already bored, let me tell you that the greatest dreams you dream, the wonderful people you meet, the worldly pleasures you experience won’t be fruitful unless you Meet Yourself.

Steps to Meet Yourself

1) Love yourself - This is the first and the last step of all. Love is the answer to everything. Don’t agree? 


Let’s take a quiz, shall we?
World Peace- Practice the art of Love

A bully at school- Needs Love and tenderness
That person in your workplace who is just a pain in the ;) – Mark his/her face with politeness and Love
Getting over a breakup- Love thy neighbour or an animal and Better YOURSELF


Outcomes of Loving yourself

You’ll never be bored- You’ll love the new You who’s transforming with experiences and learning with age.



You’ll never cheat on yourself -Who likes a person who doesn’t care a darn about himself/herself and shower his/her respective partner with all the care. We all know how that is going to end.  A person who is incapable of loving thyself cannot be trusted to love thy neighbor!

Be a HOT Mess like a BOSS! ;)

You’ll finally have all the time in the world - Remember those conversations? “I need space”, “I need time”, “I need #@!%^#”. To hell with those depressing, self-absorbing small talks.


You are your’s, never alone, always there for yourself.


So move those lazy bumps and start making a scrapbook (I’m starting) of the life you had, the things you want to do.. Bucket list anyone?

You could also take your Mom for fancy treats or Dad to adventure camps or swap these activities and have fun! :D

Today's Treat :D from Bakers Street

Just remember that there is no Love in the world that you cannot have. Just reach out and it’s your’s J
