Happy Women’s Day

f14305d0ac340cfaaa319728ecbb06e3

Here’s a fun video to celebrate us!

Lyrics-

I am woman, hear me roar
In numbers too big to ignore
And I know too much to go back an’ pretend
‘Cause I’ve heard it all before
And I’ve been down there on the floor
No one’s ever gonna keep me down again

Oh yes, I am wise
But it’s wisdom born of pain
Yes, I’ve paid the price
But look how much I gained
If I have to
I can do anything
I am strong (strong)
I am invincible (invincible)
I am woman

I am woman watch me grow
See me standing toe to toe
As I spread my lovin’ arms across the land
But I’m still an embryo
With a long, long way to go
Until I make my brother understand

Oh, yes, I am wise
But it’s wisdom born of pain
Yes, I’ve paid the price
But look how much I gained
If I have to
I can do anything
I am strong (strong) 2x
I am invincible (invincible) 2x
I am woman

Cheers!

Gratitude

 

IMG_1521

 

The world celebrated Thanksgiving Day recently. Even though in India we do not have a culture to celebrate thanksgiving Day; I would like to express my gratitude for the life I have got taking this opportunity.

Everyday while driving to work; passing by -seeing around I somehow tend to feel so much thankful for things I have got in life. Once my father told me something which my grandfather told to him when he was young- “always look at the people who are deprived rather than looking at people who are far well off than you (and thinking all the things you miss in life)” this will always keep a sense of gratitude alive in you for all the little things you have in life. Well don’t lose the sense of competitiveness in the whole process though; as to grow in life you need to have a healthy competitive feeling.

There are times when I tend to ignore those little goodness done by people around me; which I sincerely thank today and in future I look forward to have more positive thinking with right approach to appreciate things and people and goodness around.

How to live passionately no matter your age

This is extremely intimidating to come across people with high positive vibes in the midst of our day to day chaotic lives.

It just lends so much of positive perspective to our own life. But yes one needs to have the attitude to imbibe the positivity. Not many people get influenced by hearing things until and unless they have an open mind to listen to constructive things around them and try to incorporate it in their life.

I extremely get infatuated by people who can spread such knowledge around and I tend to appreciate the way they have incorporated the same in their life.

Isabel Allende is 71 yrs old lady who despite growing older imparts an incredible perspective in living life passionately.

No matter how old are you, if you live your life passionately then you live your life to the fullest. I Liked the things she spoke about – Freedom- not bothered anymore to prove yourself to anyone;  here goes the video of her talk (for TED) where you can find out more about it – may be it can a good influence in your life too.

While browsing through internet I have been coming across beautiful house interiors and get intrigued by different ways home fragrances are used around the house to add to the decor in terms of vision and beautiful fragrance.

 

PERFUMED CANDLES

Candles are easy to put anywhere and if its scented then more of a reason to have them placed in every room.

Diptique Paris has amazing perfumed candles. I love the way the candle is used on the coffee table as seen below.

REED DIFFUSER

This is a new way of freshening up the indoor air. If you find this a bit expensive then there are different ways available on web to make your own reed diffusers. I have some recipes for you here and here .

Beautify your Make Up Dresser

I was exploring a bit on the options on how to change the look of my dresser. I want to give more feminine, tidy look and at the same time it should look pretty.

I shortlisted some options and wanted to share with you. If you are also looking to set up your dresser then may be it will be a help.

A dresser with a self mirror is quite convenient and this white dresser here just enhances the colour of the things kept on it. There is so much scope to work on the display of stuff here well cordinated with rest of the elements in the room.

If you just have a table then don’t feel disappointed  as you have your own choice for a lovely mirror. A carved mirror like here in the photo or a simple glass mirror for a more sophisticated look.

Pastel decorative things imparts a soft feminine touch to the look as seen here.

If you have space constraints. Then this dresser is a good option.

Check out the site here. The stool is also a storage box, so you have good space to stuff all your make up and skin care essentials.

Organize your things on a tray and it gives more character to the dresser.

A small table top mirror for close up look will be useful and if its this pretty which girl will say no to this option. 🙂

You can check out the site here for ordering. I just bumped across this site hence sharing with you guys. But if you have a different option then go ahead.

I love the concept of having a tray to organize the things as it effortlessly gives a lovely look.

Like here I love this white tray to keep the brushes and lip balms.

pinterest2- vanity tray 2 A simple straight line tray gives more of a sophisticated look. Silver and fuchsia combination is becoming my favourite for the posh look.

Here is another look if you want to try a Gold rimmed mirror tray.

And not to forget the most essential accessories are the boxes to keep your tiny make up bits. Check out Container store for all sort of requirements. (They ship worldwide; just change your location before ordering)

Since these are transparent acrylic material; they go with almost any look. Quite useful to have these.
