Embracing my whole self is loving myself! [ Self Love ]

My blog turns one this September as a Self hosted blog and so I decided to kick up some birthday celebrations and invited people to write for me. My first guest in this series is Kashmira Mody -a life coach, yoga practioner among the many hats she dons. I had used her deck on well being for my #NaBloPoMo last November and they were loved by all!

Gratitude Post – July 2017

“Gratitude is more of a compliment to yourself than someone else.” Raheel Farooq I have been missing out on writing my Gratitude posts since a couple of months; blaming it on personal issues rather than laziness to write 😉 But life has been good and blessed and I have loads to tell you. Maybe its […]

The struggle ends when Gratitude begins!!

So often we forget how and why we got something we desired that the moment we get it; the thanks gets lost in the excitement. This April I had  huge changes in my life and watched it all unfold with a bowed head to the almighty for his generosity. (I could finally say “someone up there really […]

#ThankfulThursdays | 5 Beauty Products I am Thankful for |

I remember being fascinated with my Mom’s beauty valise – a vanity case which was like a treasure trove of colourful pots and jars of lotions, potions and paints. Her dressing table was my playground as I would brush my hair and make endless twirls to preen in front of the large three-sided mirror. (I […]

#ThankfulThursdays: 5 Vices I am thankful for

I confess I have become addicted to the thought-provoking writing prompts via #thankfulthursdays by Amrita and her gang of girls. Every week I wait for it eagerly and they never disappoint. But this week’s prompt is such a tantalizing one that I think the ladies have surpassed themselves. Can you imagine being thankful for your […]

There is this tiny little devil inside of me who often pops up to sit on my shoulder and views the world from there, all the while lending me his two bits on the happenings in my life. No he is not judgemental, just observant and vociferous.😉 (To celebrate this belief, I had one tattooed on […]

#ThankfulThursday When I saw this week’s prompt for #thankfulthursday, I was a little flummoxed (my love life is at an epic low at the moment). Thankful for love – any kind- hmmmmm!! My mental gears whirred and vroomed while I plied myself with a bottle of red wine (you see writing about love warrants wine) Then […]

Eat, Pray, Love !!!

When I first watched this movie – Eat, Pray, Love – some 6 years back, I simply couldn’t relate to it and dismissed it. The book was even worse and I couldn’t get past 4-5 pages. So that was that. Cut to 2016, a lot of emotional upheavals later, I caught the tail end of this […]

#NaBloPoMo: Day #27: Balance – Give away something you love!

#NaBloPoMo De-cluttering my life has been on my plate since past few months. The idea being  take out everything in the house that I haven’t used for few months; be it clothes, linen, shoes, bags, utensils, crockery, etc. Basically anything that has the feel of hoarded up without a utility is going to be tossed out unceremoniously.
