The City of Ghats: Varanasi

Varanasi was one of those trips for me that you plan to go to for personal reasons and as soon as you reach you realise you are should have planned to stay longer. I went to Varanasi early this year to attend the wedding of a very dear friend of mine, and as I had already been to cities like Haridwar and Allahabad I was under the impression that this one is not going to be any different from them(soon I realised how stupid I was, that I din’t plan to stay back there for a day or two after the wedding 😦 ).  Continue reading “The City of Ghats: Varanasi”

Top 5 Beauty & Skincare Favorites

I am super stoked to be sitting down here and writing this blog. There were a lot of products and things I tried out in 2016 and today I am going to do a quick roundup of everything that I have been enjoying throughout the year. I never thought I would go through one year remembering what I actually did enjoy & like. But I guess consciously or subconsciously it was in the back of my head and so here we are. So let’s hop right in! Continue reading “Top 5 Beauty & Skincare Favorites”

17 Resolutions for 2017

Hey friends, we are in 2017…. So, it’s officially that time of the year when all of us reflect on the past and try to make goals or promises or resolutions for the future (well, most of us 😛 ). Now sometimes we say it out loud to our friends and family, sometimes we just make a list and keep it to ourselves and sometimes we just think of it and make a subconscious mental note about something that we really really want to do.

GoodBye 2016…

Hello beautiful people, so the last day of 2016 is here (soak it in people, soak it in,  cause its slipping by the second 🙂 🙂 ).  

If I were to pull out the book on my life and turn to the pages of 2016, it would be a hell of a ride. There were many ups and downs, I had to make some very drastic life changing decisions throughout this year which I am hoping turn out to be for good. But that’s literally what we all do everyday right, figure life out one day at a time and try to make decisions to be the best possible version of ourselves and to make the most of everything that comes our way.

My year had a wonderful start, I was lucky enough to celebrate the new year with all my crazy, lovely friends and a wonderful trip to Hampi.

I did 2 fashion shows which both were super fun, met some lovely, creative people and had an amazing experience walking down the ramp again.

I successfully did a Feb-Photo Challenge where I took one pic every single day in Feb and I totally enjoyed the whole process. I also managed to do 48 hours of Digital Detox, which was very challenging but at the same time very enriching experience.

My birthday month was super amazing. I did Karaoke for the first time in my life and I think I managed to do it pretty well(or so my friends say 😛 ) And it was my in my bucket list for quiet some time, so that’s finally striked off 😀 😀 .

I also went to NH7 Weekender for the first time, cause it was in Hyderabad this time 😛 .

Now if I am really honest, 2016 was also one of the hardest years. Between the highs, there were a lot of lows. I questioned my abilities to simply be an adult & trying to do the right things for myself. I quit my IT job, which was one of the many hardest decisions this year.  I didn’t really focus on myself as much as I could have or I should have. After months of planning, trying to do right by everyone and myself and of course with the help of great people in my life, I think the awards will be worth it.

I try to end every year, looking forward to the possibilities of next. Travel more, experience new things, meet new and great people and be my best self. I have a lot I want to accomplish in the next years and I hope you join me in the journey ahead. So, its time to close the chapter on 2016 and start writing a new one.
