We’re bigger than we ever dreamed

“If your dreams  don’t scare you, they are not big enough.”

Never be scared to dream, but more important than that – never be scared to dream BIG. At this point of time your dreams might seem too big for your reach but if that is what makes you lose faith in your dreams, you are committing a big mistake.  Dreams hold faith in them, they hold hope and most important of all they hold a part of you in them. Its reflects your aspirations and what you expect of yourself. So when the time comes don’t stop from exceeding your own expectations, coz you are bigger than you ever dreamed.

As for my look, I have taken a swing at the print on print trend. Its a fun trend to experiment with and the mixing and matching part tickles your creative instincts. So if you haven’t tried it yet, go ahead and create something fun from your wardrobe.

Much Love

Only hate the road when you’re missing home

 “Home..where love resides, memories are created, friends always belong and laughter never ends.”

Once you leave your home to pursue your dreams there is no turning back. You seek for the brighter and the bigger world leaving back the cozy comfort of home. And once you are out there is when you realize the importance of home.

Most of us have to leave our homes to chase our dreams only to realize the importance of what we left behind. The joy of going back is like no other. Half the times we reminisce about it thinking about the memories made, the childhood we spent there , the delicious meals and the laughter that filled our homes. At this point of time when I have been staying away from home for quite some time now, I realize why my parents are so reluctant and will always be, to sell or leave our home – its because home is where the love is, home is where the memories are, home is where the heart is.

Much Love

Life is great without a care

“Cuts all over you. Ripped Jeans. Grass stains. It was a good day.”

When was the last time you cared what people thought of you. Was it a moment ago, a day or a while back? I came across this ad campaign by P&G ‘like a girl’ which has been trending on Facebook for quite a while now. Well I think they have kinda hit the spot. In school you are always taught how to be a young lady . Being a tomboy myself, I heard that way too often. Though I have evolved in my mannerism since, still a part of me will always remain a tomboy.

I don’t give it a second thought if I have to go out and play and get dirty till date. Dolls never interested me and I always played with the boys, coming back home with skinned knees. I still carry my ‘war wounds’ with fierce pride. I think its fair if you want to be the way you are and you should take pride in it. If you can’t stand a saree, so be it. You look equally good in denims and a loose tee. Be what you are coz in the end ‘Life is great without a care’.

Much Love

Don’t wake me up

“Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening. “

– Coco Chanel

Have you ever dreamed of something that you did not want to wake up from? Have you ever spent your time day dreaming and built castles in the sky? This post is for all the dreams we have ever had. Few of our dreams came true and few are yet to be fulfilled. This post is just a nudge to tell you that never stop dreaming and never be scared of fulfilling your dreams no matter how insane they might sound right now.

Dreams are the most powerful tool we have for ourselves. It not only helps you decide who will you be in the future but who you truly are and the power you have within you to make them come true.

Our love was made for movie screens

“Style: because your personality isn’t the first thing people see.”

It crazy hot out there (though I am glad that I live in Bangalore) and every time you step out of the house you get roasted alive. I know the feeling. Being born and bought up in North India I know what extreme weather can do to you and your mood. You don’t feel like going anywhere when the sun is up, nor do you feel like dressing up. But there is always a way to beat the heat. At such times crop top is a blessing and so are light weight breathable fabrics. As for your hair, the best way to manage those beautiful locks is to tie them up in a bun. The best part with buns is that you can vary your look from messy to neat just by treating and tying the bun a little different. Its smart, its chic and it is a damn comfortable way to beat the heat.

So dress up, dress light and though it will still be crazy hot outside you can brave the weather a little and go visit your favorite place in the city and bring back that smile on your face.

Much Love

When you said your last goodbye..I died a little bit inside

“Fashion is what you buy, Style is what you do with it.”

Goodbyes are supposed to be the hardest thing to say or to face sometimes. Whether its your friend, cousins, sweetheart, sibling, pet. Whoever it is, you always let them carry a little bit of you. A little bit of memories, a little bit of the time spent together. Its not always a person, it can be your old house, your college, your town. Goodbye is the most difficult thing to say to whoever or whatever has a bit of you in them. You say your goodbye and you move on but a little bit of you gets buried in the sands of time spent together.

Hope you like the post. Till then ‘Stay Aware and Stay Stylish’

Much Love

You make me Happy

“I think happiness is what makes you pretty. Period. Happy people are beautiful.”
– Drew Barrymore

With lots of my friends indulging themselves in the challenge called ‘100 Days of Happiness’, it made me wonder about all those small things in life that has the power to make us happy but we are too involved in shallow things to actually stop and realise.

The smell of cupcakes, flipping through old photos, meeting friends after a long time, getting drenched in the rain, going for a long walk, reading a book by the window while its raining outside and sipping hot chocolate, watching your dog play. There are a million small things that make you happy. All you have to do is stop and realise.

Tell me one small thing that makes you happy. Till then ‘Stay Aware and Stay Stylish’

Much Love
