What is the biggest personal change you have ever made?

Becoming less vulnerable and patient (I hate waiting). I wouldn’t say the biggest yet. Its getting better.

Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 29, and find line 4. What is the book and does it say?

It says, Nightwear- Nightwear, also called “sleepwear”, “sleeping suit”, “night clothes” or “night dress” . HAHAHAHA. Its funny in a weird way. The book is called “Fashion Merchandising”. I have exams in three days. LOL.

Helloooo New York! Because I’m a Carrie Bradshaw fan plus there’s a different kind of thrill there. And oh! One of the Fashion Capitals 😮

If you could change one thing about the world, what would you do?

Eradicate poverty. No one deserves such kind of social biasness.

Is the glass half empty or half full?

Nice one. I would say half full. If I take this as a metaphor for life, yes its half full. Why look at the side which has nothing when you can still make the remaining one worth? (ugh, Did I get too mushy?)

Never 😦

A Fashion Designer. Something which I am pursuing now. 🙂

What is your favorite time of the day?

At Dusk. I live by the sea and I love love love the shades of sunset.

I really don’t know this (._. ). It would probably be the visions of how my life would be if I do achieve what I want.

What is your favorite childhood memory?

Seeing my baby brothers birth and I was the first one to hold him :’) . I was in Grade 1 and I had a parents-teacher meeting that day. Baby brother is a lucky charmer. Ha!

Sunsets.

Nights.

The magic in the Wind.

The Sisterhood of The World Bloggers Award Nomination

Wait. WHATT?!!

I’ve been nominated for “The Sisterhood of The World Bloggers Award”!! I was so happy that I was screaming inside(which is very weird and normal in my case). It’s like the more crazy I was feeling inside the proud and boastful I felt from the outside, I think its called happiness.

This is unexpected for I’ve been MIA since a week now because I’ve been travelling lately and I have a bag full of memories which I cannot wait to share. I want to begin by thanking all for their patience and sticking up to my blog. A massive thanks to Jestimous, who nominated me for this award. She’s married but as soon as I read about her I was knocked to six! She’s a netflix fan! She’s jovial and prudent and apt!

I’ve seen many bloggers participating and being nominated for various such awards with pride and now I wouldn’t miss this opportunity. Since I am already late, I should begin…

NOMINATION RULES:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site.
  2. Put the Award logo on your blog.
  3. Answer the ten questions sent to you.
  4. Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer.
  5. Nominate seven blogs.

Number 1- Done and done!

Number 2- Scroll above to view the logo

Number 3,

 What inspires you to write? 

 I love this question because my blog revolves around it and hence it has been tagged as                        “Inspiration exists”  The fact that inspiration is immortal alone makes me want to explore more                and write more.

 If you could describe yourself with a song, which song would you choose? If you can’t               think of a song that describes you, pick one that moves your souls

“Dare you to move” by Switchfoot. This song gives me shivers and definitely moves my souls. There’s a beautiful bridge in this song  saying, “Maybe redemption has stories to tell, Maybe forgiveness is right where you fell”      Beautiful, isn’t it?

What is your favorite guilty pleasure?

I love making “Pen friends”. So sometimes I hunt for random address and write a letter to that person. Its weird and creepy but it’s so pure and traditional.

Why did you decide to start a blog?

I always knew about blogging but never thought that it would be such a huge platform and so much more. The more I write, the better I understand my state of being.

Who is your favorite fictional character?

SHERLOCK HOLMES <3. Sherlock Holmes is a deductive genius, using his analytic mind for the good. His druggie life is both gloriously detached and also more deeply engaged with the crime-ridden, class-divided, evil world of late-Victorian London

Who is the biggest inspiration in your life, or who inspires you the most?

I find inspiration in the everyday.  I am fascinated by relationships of all types–happy ones, complicated ones, unusual ones.  Through writing, I often attempt to dissect the meaning behind something that has happened or to describe a particular feeling or emotion.

I enjoy the challenge of communicating what we each experience in our everyday lives, bringing those unique moments to life through words and sentences.And what is really wonderful about writing is that I can pass on that inspiration; if I can clearly communicate some aspect of life, if I can inform or entertain the people who read my writing, I may also have the opportunity to inspire them as well.

What are your aspirations for the next 5 years of your life?

I aspire to become an editor of a high-end fashion  magazine or maybe publish my own magazine and to buy lots of clothes and droll over them.

What advice would you give to other writers, or others interested in starting a blog?

The saying “Practice makes a man perfect” is legit and apt. I would just ask all of the bloggers to see what you believe and write and write and write.

What is the most meaningful gift you’ve ever received?

I just turned 20 and my parents gave me and necklace made of real moonstones and its beautiful to no end! Moonstone opens the mind to hoping and wishing, inspiration and impulse, serendipity and synchronicity.

What is something that is guaranteed to make you laugh?

Musical Farts.
