Fresh start.

Don’t reject a shoe because you can’t run in it. It’s OK not to run – Christian Louboutin

It does feel like forever since I last updated the blog. Who knew once you willfully choose to escape your desk it’s just as difficult to get back. Getting into an arranged married changes so many things. Especially when the other side has expectations of you which I don’t understand because I was raised equal to my brother, given the same education, the same kind of bed and food. We were never stuffed into gender roles until we became old enough to be married! God save our souls!

Everything started becoming about what society expects of us! Matchmakers didn’t like my job I was expected to change it. If they couldn’t find a suitable boy it was because I wasn’t beautiful (everyone didn’t say it but that literally translated to not being fair!). Oh and the best thing I’ve heard is that I don’t have a dressing sense ūü§£. Well WTF!!!!!!!!! Really!!!!

Sorry, I’m not an engineer, doctor, or clerk! I’m a fashion consultant, yes I have to work on weekends because that’s when most of my clients are free! I’m proud of my healthy brown skin and F you, I can make boring clothes interesting in ways you never imagined. The whole world loves to point fingers at someone else and create problems instead of trying to find solutions.

The Bible teaches me to seek and you will find, ask and you will receive, yet failure hurts our egos and we blame each other. I started to blame the whole world and myself, eventually little by little I started losing myself to becoming cynical, self-destructive and losing track of time. The stories you hear about depression started getting real in my everyday! I would sleep four days a week and not get out of bed, eat all I could and pretty much stopped all my exercise. One day I looked into the mirror and saw a fat girl staring back I didn’t recognize anymore.

I once read depression hits the hardest to those who are mentally strong in the first place. So I decided something has to change. So I asked myself what can I do to change and become strong again? and then I remembered the one thing that forces me to stay focused is creating something with my bare hands. So I started small with a quick stitch kit. The design comes fully prepped so I have less to worry about making mistakes. moved on to drawing random doodles in a scribble pad while sitting in the doctors waiting rooms. which eventually resulted in me getting a doodle book of the internet to make posters of my favorite quotes. Psst! the timeline for these things to happen are not as short as my sentences ūüėá.

This one is one of my own quotes! actually mostly an affirmation to myself, Because from a very young age I could be strong resilient and overly determined to achieve my goals in life. I always have it in my head what I want to achieve before I die, and while sitting with my life coach I came up with the realization that I need to get my focus back in life and this poster was to make me take a first baby step towards getting my mental balance to normal.

You’ve got Paul who takes you to the party, George who talks to you about God, John is just “No, it’s about love and pain” and then Ringo who just says “Hey, can’t we enjoy what we have while we have it?” – Ethan Hawke, Boyhood (2014)

The Beatles were never one of my favorite bands, never came across a song of theirs that appealed to me. But the words of Ethan Hawke in boyhood made me all curious about their music. A simple search brought me to the yellow submarine! something felt so annoyingly right about the song, Maybe because the image of a yellow submarine is very whimsical! almost like watching Spongebob square pants. childish yet trippy. This cardigan gave me another reason to go all trippy about the yellow submarine.

PS your not going to find this piece in the market. because I searched and searched and dug the whole world. Every time only 2 Ms would surface online. I finally picked up the M at the store on a 70% discount.

To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance – Oscar Wilde

I spent the last two days trying so hard to be nice and to find something nice to say about love. I never was a roses and chocolate kind of girl. Honestly, I still don’t understand why anyone wants to celebrate Vday! ‚̧ ! Do we really need an excuse to celebrate love? I never did! We live in a world where people accept heartbreak faster than love itself. We accept standards set by people We barely know and bury personal desires.

But what better way to put in in Kohli’s own Words on Instagram

“Everyday is a valentine day if you want it to be. You make everyday seem like one for me ‚̧‚̧. @anushkasharma”

Superman is essentially a god, but Batman is more like Hercules: he’s a human being, very flawed, and bridges the divide – Christopher Nolan

If It wasn’t for Christopher¬†Nolan I probably would have never cared to watch batman in action. Never was much of a DC comics fan, But It was the CN versions that made him a true dark favourite amongst heroes. The fascinating¬†Version of Joker and the twisted Tate. At first, when I saw the batwings in style I was fascinated¬†but the sleeves had structural flaws, which made pairing¬†difficult. But as foolish as I always¬†am I picked up the top after a lengthy debate of “let’s figure¬†it out later”,

“There’s never one sunrise the same or one sunset the same” – Carlos Santana

When you keep reading the runway trends again and again, your bound to start seeing patterns even if they don’t exist! I’ve been buying Orange long before it became a part of the sunset hues trend. However, I was a little disappointed when I didn’t find those good versions of tangerine orange anywhere. It was only a few days back when I was looking for something to wear to a meeting I got the idea for this particular outfit. The distorted white shirt has also become a trend. Palazzo + white shirts are my all time favorites. tangerine5

After traveling for a while being back in the city my judgment a bit hazy about what to wear. So when I had to step out on a sunny afternoon. The simplest shift dress is always the best option. No drama no confusion, a shift dress, pumps and well rounded basic sunglasses and we are ready to go.

The only rule is, don’t be boring and dress cute wherever you go. Life is too short to blend in. – Paris Hilton

Yes! don’t be boring! Be bold and pointless. I’m pretty sure Paris¬†never made any relevant points in her life but she still is dressed up and well noticed by everyone. Christmas and the¬†new year bring¬†in a wave occasions to be dressed up. From Christmas¬†parties, family gatherings, weddings (esp the weddings), etc, etc… I had a few occasions to wear this beautiful¬†outfit, day or night, the vibrant color makes it easy to style and the flowy fit hides your undesired bumps ūüėČ (yes I am fat too) It’s like wearing a flared skirt on your shoulders. A word of advice, buy one size bigger if u want a relaxed fit, anyways the fit is not affected by your body type. If you do have flattering body type then you can wear a thin belt at the waist.

If I go crazy then will you still, Call me Superman – 3 doors down

Never was a fan of DC comics characters still in full awe of Marvels SHIELD and The great avengers until I started watching supergirl. Yup Karah is amazing, but CAT Grant is still the goddess played by Calista Flockhart. The best part was finding this top is that it flaps like the supergirl cape when I walk. perfect super power when you wanna escape.
