We Do Change

I have read many philosophers saying that it is only the calender that changes and not us. That no matter how new we feel, we still own the same old, stubborn, usual, non flexible soul.

While it may be true to a certain extent, but new things happen to us every new year. An acquaintance of mine used to write diaries and once made the effort to compare his notes written on various new years. He was in for a surprise. While his resolutions faltered sooner or later, he did did new things. He learnt from some of them and he also repeated his mistakes. We all do.

We all have two sides of ourselves: one that changes and one that does not. At the end of the year, we all live on hope. So let us hope that we will change for good. Let us hope we will do many new things this year. Let us make a list.

I know I have wished you guys in my last post, but still..

Happy new year.

This Year, Be Yourself

Yes, I know this does not look like a usual fashion post. It is more than that.

It is more than my idea of bringing street fashion to your desktops and mobile phones. I have become a small part of a new initiative called Be Yourself. These are the pictures of some of the kids we celebrated our New Year with.

Be Yourself is all about spending a few hours on your average weekend to spread cheer among those who are less privileged. The team will keep you updated about their latest activities on their Facebook page. You can participate in the activities if you wish to.

It is time we all give something back to the society. It is time we make some effort to change things. A small step is enough. Be Yourself is not an NGO. It is just an initiative that calls people to help the poor every once in a while.

Check out their website here. Do like their Facebook page. Let me know your thoughts. And yes, I would like to wish you all a very happy new year. Sorry about the break. Have an awesome weekend.

Please like Be Yourself's Facebook page. It would mean a lot.

From My Last Trip Home - Good Hair Day

So here is the third lot of the pictures I clicked when I was home. The sister in the topmost picture has the most interesting hair I have ever seen. There is an interesting story behind her hair. Ever since she was a child, she longed for really long hair. She prayed for long and dark hair. She used all sort of hair products and left no stone unturned to tame that un-tamable mane of hers.

About length, well it never happened.

She thinks her hair is not her best asset. But I do like to mention that most of us end up staring at healthy, interesting, well styled hair.  Long hair is over-rated if I am allowed to say it loud. From long, I mean really long hair. You know what I mean.

Also, I will not post anything on my blog for a while. No reason I guess. Just give me some time. You all have a lovely weekend.

From My Last Trip Home- Red Lips

“Lipstick was an easy answer to boredom. It was the most exciting thing you could do in the shortest amount of time because for a second, you got to convince yourself that you were the kind of gal who wears lipstick every day. You got to pout to yourself, and trick yourself that you were glamorous. Then in a second it was over, time to wipe it off and start again.”
― Ainslie Hogarth, The Lonely 


That was a bit depressing. Right? But I liked it. Anyway, the pictures on today's blogpost have nothing to do with the quote for my sister is not going to abandon her red lipstick anytime soon.

She is the new one in our family who has fallen in love with red lipstick. And she wears it like she owns it. All happy and ready to go somewhere. Here goes the second post of the series. You guys have a great weekend. Take care.

Summer Was Here

“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.” 
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

So I am using the word summer a lot these days.

But you see it is very easy to love the summer colours. The mints, the peaches, the oranges... In India, most of us don't get to see harsh winters. But even if it is not harsh, it does mean blacks and burgundys to a lot of people. Hence summers are important as well.

Anyway, I don't have much to write today. Hope you guys are doing great. Have a great weekend!
