Everyone has those dark, uncertain phases. And while you’re in the midst of an internal war, there are some external factors, that always – and I mean always- bring peace to you, long enough to make a difference and calm you down. For me, anything that’s a part of nature does it. The calm it brings to me is enough to remind myself that each one of us has a light inside us, one that we must persevere to keep lit.
This all black outfit exudes all the chaos I felt inside at that point, yet the gold hues indicate that light and the red pout, strength.

What I love, is variety. So when I came across this top that had a keyhole neckline, I knew I’d be able to switch that and make it a high-sarong neckline. In fact, this is applicable to most key-hole necklines. All I did was, instead of tying up the strings, I overlapped and tied them at the nape of my neck. Just that simple ! It is the best way to get rid of those extremely low ones.
The fresh colored print in this beautiful top was the best way to welcome this monsoon – monsoons being my favorite season. To balance this burst of colors, I used white jeans and neutral pumps.
I absolutely love these long feather earrings and my chunky bracelets combined with the watch.

Dresses scream feminity. That’s what I love the most about them, and that they make me feel special. However, what I don’t like about them, is repeating them as the same attire. The best part is digging into my closet to find a layer to add, a new look to create.
The 2 outfits for the looks in this post are monochrome inspired.
For the 1st look, I paired the dress with a camel colored tote and pumps. Gold hoops and a simple gold diamond studded bracelet complete the look.

For my second look, all I have done is shrugged on a loose jacket, paired with a gun-metal choker and a biker wristband. My black court shoes complete the look.

All over the internet, I see people state how a woman should love herself inside out irrespective of her size, weight, skin colour, body shape, financial status, love life, I could keep on naming the factors and most of them may hit home. I agree. Loving yourself is most important. After all, who will love you more than you can ? Who knows the depth of your passions, desires and wild dreams better than you do ? How will you ever love completely, freely and selflessly if you’re not utterly in love with yourself ?
And for all these reasons, the bottom of which stems from feeling good about yourself, because you must love yourself – body, mind and soul – it is important to stay fit and healthy. Most of us have had short phases of workout routines or diets, whether we have been able to keep up or not, none of us can deny how much more confident they make us feel. Because its an effort in yourself, it is taking care of yourself, it is pampering yourself and loving yourself all twisted in one beautiful melody. Now, in no way am I saying you need to fit in a stereotype, be a particular size or weigh a certain number. But, how are you doing yourself justice if you can not climb 5 flights of stairs or jog a little without running out of breath ? How will you be able to push your physical self enough to run and escape an emergency ? Not to mention, not remaining healthy invites a lot of conditions, diabetes and thyroid being a common pair out of the many. How are you loving yourself when your organs are protesting ? And then we conveniently blame it on our parts not being enough. It’s easy to say “Oh, my stomach is upset”. Have you ever wondered who the cause is ?
The sad part is, most of us are already aware of all this. We just don’t have enough control. Honestly, in blatant words, that means you don’t love and respect your body enough. That you take it for granted.
But, what if I tell you that its possible to eat all those delicacies without harming yourself ? I have lost 13 kilos in 45 days, most of which is only due to elimination of certain wrong items in our daily diet. I have a regular intake of ice creams, those I just could never live without. All I did was eliminate all carbohydrates that come from grains. I will share all the recipes that helped me right here.
Workout, on the other hand, requires a little motivation. There are various routines that can be done in the comfort of your home. And there are so many you can switch them up if like me, you’re not a fan of monotonous workout routines. There are a lot of little tricks, will post on that later, that you can add in throughout the day that make you more upbeat and energetic.
This is my journey to a better long lasting health and I want you to be a part of it.
If there’s one thing that all we girls love and feel most comfortable in, its our denims. Denims today are so versatile in their designs and usage, I absolutely fell in love with this top from the RS denim collection at sight.
I decided to pair it with my ankle length cutout leggings-the silver details on which complemented the neckline detailing perfectly-,my silver glitter pumps and a black sling with silver detailing from Forever 21. To top this simple look, I accessorised using my favourite bronze Fossil watch and this silver necklace I had picked up one of my trips to Colaba causeway.
