“Amorebyshonadewal”……oh wait, I am so sorry I forgot to introduce myself………
So let’s start with getting to know each other first, let me begin again with introducing myself,
Well Hi everyone I am SHONA DEWAL a.k.a VARSHA DEWAL !
Oh you must be wondering about the a.k.a well I am sure we all know it stands for (also known as) but why is it there in my name ? And why does this girl has two Names ? Well so officially my Name is Varsha Dewal, but all my life, my friends and family have called me SHONA , so I went ahead and Named my blog with my more personal name, because after all aren’t we going to be friends too ? Well of-course Via the blog but that should do too.
I am a Graduate GEMOLOGIST FROM THE GEMOLOGICAL INSTITUTE OF AMERICA ( GIA ), I am also an ACCREDITED JEWELLERY PROFESSIONAL FROM THE GEMOLOGICAL INSTITUTE OF AMERICA ( GIA ) , I am also a Graduate JEWELLERY DESIGNER FROM GEMOLOGICAL INSTITUTE OF AMERICA ( GIA ) , I attended College at Instituto Marangoni in Milan for 2 weeks, for my MASTERS IN FINE JEWELLERY DESIGN, ( but sadly I couldn’t complete the course because I had some personal reasons and had to return back then, and of course because of this I couldn’t get my course fee refund either, I will surely share this incident with you in future over the blog, considering it was a major life lesson )
“AMORE” in Italian means “LOVE”, well I went ahead and named my blog AMORE because I love and believe in the idea of love, love universally is a rejoiced feeling, it somehow plays a very important part in every individual’s life, personally love for me isn’t synonymous to only between two people or lovers, love for me is your love and happiness for everything that you are creatively passionate or sensitive about, love for me is love for your family, love for me is love for fashion, love for me is love for jewellery, love for me is love for all things bling and sparkle, love for me is love for food, love for me is to be in love with the idea of life, love for me is love for your friends, and more importantly love for me is love for humanity,
So “ AMOREBYSHONADEWAL” is going to be a LIFESTYLE BLOG which would be including my love for FASHION, FOOD, TRAVEL, BEAUTY, JEWELLERY and YOUR VERY OWN WELL-BEING, it’s going to be about my personal approach and experience in life and my love for all these things, a space where I’ll be sharing all my views and my experiences with you and of- course my knowledge on these things and hopefully even learn more on this journey with you,
WELL SO HERE WE GO………..AMOREBYSHONADEWAL !
This is the first post on my new blog. I’m just getting this new blog going, so stay tuned for more. Subscribe below to get notified when I post new updates.
Hello There…….So presenting my very own experimental Homecooked #Amorebyshonadewalrecipe simple Chilli Oil recipe……Hope you enjoy watching and reading the entire Recipe……….up on the blog……
I love pan Asian cuisine and this one has been on my list forever to learn how to make it, I never really enjoyed the packaged ones and wanted to try to make my own authentic version that could be as close to the real one, I did check various videos of different ways of how to make a chilli oil, but I knew I wanted it to match upto my very own taste, after all, it should meet your taste palate too, A perfect Chill Oil makes a whole lot of difference to a warm Dumpling/ Wonton Dish or a Plate full of Noodles or Noodle Soup, honestly it goes with everything and there are various ways to make one, I preferred to keep it spicy, simple and amazingly delicious and added my very own touch to this very ORIGINAL Recipe, it’s not Plagiarised , or copied but my own very take, with spices and condiments out of your kitchen and to add the correct spiciness to the entire recipe by cooking the onion and garlic along with the spices, some spicy chilli flakes and a whole lot of Schezwan pepper corns, with some Chill paste and of course Star anise with Cinnamon Sticks, it’s easy quick and you can store it up for the longest period of time, but mind you it will surely get over quick…….hahahaha
2-3 cloves of Star anise
Schezwan Pepper corns, or the ones you find,
Some Bay leaves,
Some Cinnamon Sticks,
Spicy Chilli Paste( according to your taste)
2 large Cups of Oil
1 medium Cup of Soy Sauce according to the consistency
1 Dish Finely Chopped Onion ( I have used the Onion part of the Green Onion, because it will add the spiciness to the Chilli oil, but you can use the red or the yellow onion as per your wish)
1 Dish Finely Chopped Garlic
2 Whole spoons to Powdered Sugar
P.S Cooking Hack use an OLD NON-STICK PAN, so it would cook well and won’t Stick and have the required Crips too, remember to not Burn your Onions and condiments, Just wait till the Onion becomes Brown,
While serving the chilli Oil you can add Sugar or Soy Sauce according to your taste, but with my Variation it won’t be necessary and it would turn out just fine,
Hope you enjoyed reading and Watching this entire article and enjoyed this really Simple and classic Recipe of my Own, all Copy rights belong to me here……hahahaha…..but you can surely try this and let me know…..Thank you !! 💐
P.S I originally created this Recipe on 30th May, but waited a while to share it with you guys, hope you enjoy readying it and try your own Version and I also posted a Wonton with Chilli Oil Video on my Instagram though !
Well hello there ! So how have you been ? It’s been a long time since I posted ? Hahaha no not really, the last post I posted was about looking towards the RAINBOW, though after the Uttarakhand post this was suppose to be the next post, but I waited this one out, I shot this weeks ago though, hope you all enjoyed reading the previous post and my travel diaries too , this post is a little off the charts and the first one of it’s kind because it’s a home-cooked( Maa Ke haath ka khana and also cooking done by me) in this case it’s cooked by my mother, so this one is the first of it’s series food related post, I have often posted my Food post on my Instagram stories and as my post too,
Last year during the lockdown with everything shut and a sudden shock everyone chose to create our classic daily recipes at home, and one of the Mumbai specials is surely Vada Pav, Vada Pav is every Mumbaikar’s ( People living in Mumbai are often referred to as that) life, it’s often a joke that in Mumbai we have more Vada Pav then blood in our body…..hahaha kidding it’s just a Feel and a Vibe in on it’s own, it’s also been a classic recipe from my mom’s kitchen, and mind you A Vada Pav is a must for me,
During the lockdown I really missed eating a Vada Pav from Anand Stall Opposite Mitibhai college in Vile Parle, these stalls that are there outside these colleges are very famous for their fast food, and they take good precautionary measures too normally, in fact this particular stall has been there forever, even when I was in college, I would go from my college with my friends back then to grab a Vada Pav from Anand stall, and outside my very own college there is a famous stall of the best Sandwiches ( known as Jay sandwich) i’ll speak about that some other Time,
So but obviously during the lockdown down last year I was missing this very important food, so I asked my Mother to make it for me and boy was I Glad, but then I didn’t have the green and the red chutney to go along with, which I made up for this year, along with nice and not so spicy green chilli,
It’s a funny story but Vada Pav is vey easily affordable, it’s a often known As a Poor Man’S Burger and frankly it is indeed Mumbai’s burger, everyone enjoys eating a Vada Pav in Mumbai whether you are Rich or Poor, it’s a equalising element of our society, and all prefer to eat it from our classic Mumbai stalls, I once had someone say something really mean to me in a slang “ that he’ll get me to my Vada Pav ki Aukaad” which means he’ll make me a beggar, hahahah little did he know that my Vada Pav ki aukaad( status) will cost him so much that all he would want is for me to buy him some Vada Pav, but frankly I took it in a right manner and till date haven’t given up on my beloved Vada Pav,
So Some days ago I asked my mother to make this extremely delicious dish along with some Indian Style Aloo Bhajiya Sandwich ( made with Vada Pav filling in a sandwich style only deep fried using Besan flour for coating ) and I am also posting pictures when last year I asked my mother to make Bhajiyas for me( oh they are onion, potato, spinach fried in Besan Flour ) and every Vada Pav stall has Bhajiyas too, you can eat it like that or with the Pav as you like, and you wouldn’t regret it, it was totally on spot and delicious, I couldn’t have asked for better, so here are some pictures of me enjoying this delicious food item and well I hope you enjoy my food story !
Hope you enjoy reading this Post, please provide your valuable feedback and this is a no makeup post but still not lazing around wearing causal and just being me, oh yes I am a big Foodie and my love for food knows no Bounds, Thank you ! 💐
Hello there ! How are your’ll ? Hope all good, this post is surely a special yet not so special one, it’s on my random moments and of-course my feeling and belief’s In life and of course what I have been feeling and going through, the last few days have been more than unusual, it’s just me being me, but I have surely found a different way of dealing with things and ofcourse the approach matters, and all that kept aside I realised that some things and matters need to be dealt with the way they deserved to be dealt with,
Empathy, love, grace, kindness and Peace can only be an option till and when someone chooses the same as you, if not then it’s as useless as it may seem, because whether or not someone will have a change of heart isn’t guaranteed, and while at it we have to carefully learn to deal with things and only choose grace when the time and need calls for it, and most of the times these emotions are situational than most situation,
Conversational reality is probably the best one, it’s like you are living the conversation with an individual but nothing really comes out of, it’s all good in voices and words but it’s never put to use, so it’s sort of a negotiating agreement between two people till they come to point of dealing, until then it’s just status Quo, and somehow we seem to live this Conversational reality in our day to day life, and put up with the difficult To-Be(futuristic) Situation and ignore Fatal circumstances not only for yourself and your family but for many others,
I used these images for the Pride Month ( which was last month) frankly the idea of celebrating a certain victory in the society specially the one that celebrates liberal views on Love only for a month is sadistic but it’s better called for as it’s more appreciation and respect for the deserving, while at it, I love the idea of celebrating love, and frankly my views remain more liberating and approach somehow is justified, the pride symbolism of Rainbow itself shows the possibility of a together and forever love and a love that celebrates all,
So here’s to many more words, and victories to come and of course the understanding the grace that probably requires us to be more well aware than necessary, we can never be too sure and yet we can never be to relaxed, it is a two way road but you can choose whatever is necessary and you shall find the Rainbow at the end of the Tunnel and while at it celebrate life being the Power, Love and Empathy that you can be, because clearly it’s not vanished yet and somehow these strong emotions does help us in our day to day life, while keeping your choices and your dignity in tact !
Hope you enjoyed Reading this article, you can follow me for more on Instagram and Facebook ( @Amorebyshonadewal Page) and like and share them too, and provide constructive feedback if necessary, I am grateful for the time you took for reading this article, Thank You ! 💐
P.S this is a Complete No make up look and the styling has been kept simple and understated at best, because this was going to be a just Being Post, and I Used my Old Mask which is clearly worn out, for keeping the post at real as possible , that it’s been a along time but Corona is still around, so Stay Safe and Follow the necessary Guidelines and Precautions and only Step out when necessary, like here I was out after 2 months for getting some stuff !
Well hello there ! So have you all missed me ? Hahahaha I believe not……hahah just kidding, well with the Corona virus living it’s life and making sure India witnesses its Nightmare here I am putting this blog post together, well I thought I should finally get done with these pending travel post, the life before Corona, oh what a relief it was right ? The good old days after all…..
For me personally back in January 2020 a travel plan Included form travelling to musoorie after Shimla, it’s almost two different states and it took a total of 8 hours for me by road to reach musoorie from shimla, shimla is in Himachal Pradesh, whereas musoorie is in Uttarakhand, I always wanted to travel the north by road and witness its surreal beauty, I will share the videos and pictures here for you to know what exactly I am talking about, oh and the January time was a perfect weather to visit these places,
Though Uttarakhand had other plans for me, the weather forecast and the Gods definitely made sure I witness the Rains and Snowfall together and know exactly how it snows and get to see it, I looked up in the sky and thanked the god’s for fulfilling my this dreamy wish,
After leaving from shimla and travelling by road in our comfortable tourist vehicle with our very responsible driver as Thomas Cook India took care of my Travel plans and made sure I was safe and had my schedule perfectly planned, I reach musoorie after an 8 hour road drive, and man was I glad to witness the mountain life ? Well totally it’s the kind of place you take off to for some peace and quite, the mountain life isn’t for us city folks though because it’s slow and definitely different, and musoorie isn’t exactly an over populated place though, they are the simple people living on the simple slopes of the twirling mountain roads, I wonder how the hybrid’s from Mussoorie that have moved to mumbai from Uttarakhand turn out to be so bitchy ? Or is that a sense of insecurity or an inferiority complex that gets to them ? God knows what, but the people there are surely kind and friendly so don’t judge them on the bitchy entitled fools from Uttarakhand or the Mountains that you would find here( In Mumbai ),
I chose the JW Marriott Walnut Groove for my stay while in Uttarakhand, I was there for a total of only 3 days and I believe that was perfect, because there is nothing to do there, expect for local activities such as mountain trekking or just some wellness centre, I specially chose musoorie for my mother and well the view from hotel completely made for the spectacular mountain life there is,
Well the first day I got there was already evening time so couldn’t do much so I had dinner in the hotel and then chose to go to sleep after a tiring journey the next morning the rain gods surprised me and came in falling so I couldn’t do much though I still made a trip to their local market, and it was just about fine, and visited a Buddhist temple which was shut because of the rains but I still got to see lord Buddha and seek his blessing and turns out it did turn out for the right, after getting back to the hotel I chose to stare at the amazing mountain view covered in fabulous rain oh my the beauty,
The next day I was in for a more stern surprise because this time the gods chose to make me witness snowfall which I was totally craving for, oh how I loved watching the snow fall, my mom was superbly happy for me that the god’s were so kind and fulfilled my this wish, though it was a bummer for tourist because the road was blocked with snow, I still went to the market area, clicked some pictures and in the hotel had an amazing dinner, well the third day I had my flight so there wasn’t much but if you find the chance to visit musoorie and want some peace and quite and want some fresh air and closer to nature it’s the place to be, it’s the key for rejuvenation, of your mind and soul, I had the perfect company of my mother and nothing could bring more happiness to me,
The next morning after breakfast I was off to the Dehradun Airpot to take my flight back home as my Darling Nado, Tia and Snowy were waiting for Me, it’s such a fond memory, because I lost my Snowy( my Persian cat) on the 25th of April 2021 and nothing can ever fill that void in my heart, and these memories bring back so much and make me just have a smile on my face thinking of how my babies were safe in my absence back then, and now I have to worry of sadistic venomous vultures eyeing them and their peace, not the best place to be in emotionally, but I am holding up strong and nothing brings me more joy than looking at all these memories and smiling and trying to be hopeful, hope we all get through out tough times as at this moment the entire world is suffering and kindness, humility, humanity and Hope is the only thing that can help us get through !
Hope you enjoyed reading this article and found my travel diaries and my mountain experience helpful and positive, it’s an amazing life and place to visit, thank you for always being kind and supporting me, please like and share and follow if you like this post, Thank you ! 💐
P.S post originally written on 6th May 2021 and the travel diary is from January 2020, this is a Throwback Post !
Well well well Hello There ! Aren’t we all already familiar with the Corona Epidemic that refuses to leave ? And now it has daily drama to provide, so last month I lost my baby boy Snowy( my Persian Cat) and well of course ever since then things were a bit hay wire for me, but then life goes on is what one would say, I did keep posting on my Instagram regularly though and I thought what better then now sharing those amazing post as my Lockdown moments and breaking them down just for the sake of Diaries ? Here is an entire collection of my moments spent, and of course my caption which are by the way my write ups as you all know by now I prefer writing and these are purely my views stated and my original work, hopefully people maintain DIGNITY AND DO NOT COPY OR INDULGE IN PLAGIARISM,
So here we go a complete synopsis of my Lockdown dairies which involved being busy with my day to day life, clicking some moments, not wearing make up, hair done up usual, reading books, watching series, and of course so many more things such as cooking (cooking series would be a complete separate post since I have enough to share) , playing with Nado Tia, spending some fun moments with my mom, basically making a lot many memories, along with keeping up with my work life and managing my finances for the possibility of the pandemic creating a havoc,
This also involves getting in trouble for stating my opinions, being more vocal about my opinions and thoughts VIA INSTAGRAM STORIES , encouraging and accepting more hatred for that, along with some very usual to Unusual tussle with the cops, and of course witness my CAR PROBLEMS again as it magically gets some new problems over night ( yes I am aware someone is messing with my car since it’s on a road parking, and there is no camera surveillance, and I realise that it has been opened, no I haven’t filed a police complain, don’t know still what exactly I should be doing, since I don’t know the culprit, whoever it is, is definitely a wuss and wants to PHYSICALLY harm me,
I have also got a new bunch of people giving me threats that just doesn’t make any sense, and of course a complete roller coaster life, Basically one month and many emotions, and don’t even ask me about vaccination as I have completely ignored that process and like any other citizen waiting along with lines,
Nobody is important and every life matters, this statements itself is a tragedy waiting to peak through, as we enter a new month with a series of a lot of emotions and preparing for the rains, I find myself at the crossroads of emotions that nothing will ever be the same, and whatever takes turns and vibes in the future will purely depend on the actions and judgments made today, of course sharing your activities and keeping it real is surely the motto, so here I am keeping it aesthetic and as real as possible with my hair let down and keeping the FASHION AND STYLE natural and more DAY-To-Day life, where it’s all about simplicity and COMFORT, with ELEGANCE OF-course and not capitalising of any situation and being of good use , so yes a lot of emotions and not many to state, if you ever miss me, you can check my Instagram, I am very regular there and update as much as I can and when I can as I have a life ahead of the social media too !
Hope you enjoy this post, and pictures with my Instagram captions along with it, it does perfect justice to the whole idea of reality chosen and understood ! Thank you ! 💐
Well hello there people ! How have you guys been ? Hope everything is treating you guys well and life’s being good ? Well life isn’t going to be just smooth ? Is it ? No right but can we make most of the time that is granted to us ? Well hell yeah ! While at let’s go into a flash back and state what actually matters ? Well ya throwback to a year ago, when I decided to celebrate my birthday(25th Jan 2020) up high in the Himalayan hills, as memorable it has been it also shaped me into the person I am today, which is anything but easy……..hahahahaha
So well I chose shimla for its beauty and frankly I travelled there as a child, I wanted to take my mother to shimla since she never went to shimla, my bucket list for 2020 involved travelling around India, well life had obviously different plans for me, my life still requires me to put my foot down and stay homebound,
Well my arrival in the snow capped mountains and the lovely Oberoi Wildflower hall shimla was anything but a quick trip, since it took quite a lot of time to get there, and I enjoyed every bit of my road trip with my mother, it was peace and calmness, which is what I exactly needed, my life knew better, as the pandemic bought a lot of personal struggles for me, my 29 definitely warned me and got me my much required peace and calmness that helped me through out the 2020, my beautiful experience shaped me into the marvellous person I am today ?…..hahaha ya 10 years of experience brings this and I can comment and promise that I am still learning,
Shimla is a quite and quaint city, it’s famous for its natural beauty and I can guarantee it did not disappoint me, it was every bit the Marvel and wonder I expected it to be, great people, kind helpful and smiling faces and great hospitality, in one word I wasn’t disappointed by the amazing Queen of the Hills !
My fashion choice was ofcourse fashionable yet comfortable and yes I wasn’t the only one who resorted to long comfy coats, but I saw quite a crowd that stood out, although my all white look to the market stole the show…..hahahaha I had quite the look on…..well I am sure by now you all know my love for all white, though I celebrated my birthday in my house before leaving for Shimla,
I chose an all white outfit both times, and later I did invite some controversy too, so here is post my look and the pictures of the absolute picturesque Shimla which has a Mall Road to shopping for locals and great atmosphere, it’s the kind of place you should be in when you want to get in sync with yourself and nature, it’s beautiful, clam and amazing, a different life from the city life,
These trips are more like a trip you would take for the amazing beauty of the mountains, a road trip that was pending, the understanding of my heart was lurking for, was it the roses or the thorns that would make it to my life ? The moment of understanding for contemplation, and frankly It didn’t disappoint, I was ready to take on my life and I had a better understanding of my heart and my choices, and I can happily say I have turned 30( This Year ) with NO REGRETS of the choices I have made, they have been tricky, but nevertheless soothing, which has bought me a lot of personal peace to my heart, I am glad I have found what I was looking for, and probably have a better understanding in the matter of heart and the battle of the heart and the head,
PRO-TIP : what’s yours will always remain yours, don’t fret and don’t regret, today’s struggle will mark the amazing sunlight and sunshine awaiting you at the end of this ugly chapter of life, a trip to the mountains bought a lot of peace to me, and I definitely left my heart somewhere in the mountains, may be now the mountain could bring me those amazing Roses…………hahahahah doesn’t hurt to expect love from this amazing puzzle called life ! 💓
Well hello there, so here we go again, it’s March 2021 and we are entering another lockdown due to Miss or Mr Corona, the pandemic surely pulled a hard and a score on people by suddenly surprising them that while take became easy going, Corona decided to multiply, all that said Aside I frankly feel it takes a huge toll on people and their financial state while Corona lurks around,
I have been Missing in Action well because I caught food poisoning and had to rest at home for 3 full days, I have literally not taken so much rest before, definitely not having the best of my health scene, while at it I promoted a post on Instagram and all hell broke loose, because apparently the post seemed Sexy ? And kind of accentuated my Body, I wonder where were all these people the last year when I literally went through living hell and nobody found one single fault back then, Apparently Booty is a problem, oh and also A hint of your Bra showing is, but some section of the society found it absolutely normal in targeting the Booty back in February 2020 and commenting on a woman’s cleavage ? Was that even ok ?
As usual I haven’t payed any heed to such Garbage, because well frankly it’s Garbage and Garbage should be tossed outside, rather than collecting it, I keep myself sorted under all circumstances, I don’t find the need to justify myself in any god dam way,
A woman/Women in the society somehow find themselves being questioned each day on their actions, their body or their sexuality, we celebrate women’s sexuality and at the same time look down upon it, when men lurch on a woman nobody thinks what it does to her, but when the same woman finds foothold in the boldness she starts to get questioned, comfort should always be an option for every woman, and giving her the right to freedom shouldn’t be a choice which has to be made, instead we live in a free world and freedom was, is and will always be a choice, anyone who tries to curb that freedom should be punished,
Asking a woman to adjust with you for work purpose is nothing but exploitation, buying a woman’s body and soul isn’t sex trade then what is ? Promising success to a woman instead of her body is like giving her a poison and having sex with her living corpse, many woman find their solace in such acts, some find thrill, but to some it’s unbearable, asking a woman to give up her power and adjust with the shame of a Man’s glorified Penis isn’t Manhood, so if a woman is dealing with something like that, well then you know what it is, no woman wishes to have a man on top of her body who would say to her if you agree with me I’ll give you the world, might as well live in that world alone,
Where as the lockdown is concerned I have very less to say there but I’ll finally choose to say, a Weekend lockdown was the first to occur to me, COVID cases need to be controlled because the doors to travelling hasn’t opened up and it’s not about one life but many, a human rights situation would always be a human rights situation, nobody is above the life of the people, and while at it in a fast pacing city like mumbai where shopkeepers earn their daily wage in the name of daily sales we need better systematic laws, I am not questioning the management here but just trying to come up with better solutions, up until yesterday people were earning and today only essentials are open, so may be a COMPLETE WEEKEND LOCKDOWN should be a option and a normal human being should be allowed to EARN ON THE WEEKDAYS, while maintaining the Night CURFEW, here I am not just CRITICISING but as usual coming up with my own point of VIEW, I was out and about even yesterday to buy the groceries thank god I got done, but let’s have COMPASSION, it hurts me to see so many lives suffer just because of circumstances, and while at it the NEEDS AND WANTS of the people should be above anything and no I don’t have any problems with the government, well why would I it’s not like they owe me anything…….hahahahaha,
So while at it this post is not a RANT but just how LIFE HAS BEEN and I feel these kind of post become absolutely necessary once in a while, while at it, I am at home following the laws and obeying the lockdown rules, Stay safe and Stay happy, peaceful and kind always !
Well I shot these images last year and didn’t end up posting up on the blog, tough I posted two pictures with a caption of ongoing crises, and well my life hasn’t been an easy one, but who even lives a easy life ? While at it have fun and Keep smiling everyone lots of Love and happiness and Kind wishes to each one of your’ll, Thank You 💐
P.S that’s my Pet Fur on my Sweatshirt, and I am proud of it, it’s before I got these shots taken, because I had taken them along with me for a drive, and frankly it’s every PET PARENT STORY, I thought it’ll be a right feel of ACCEPTING THE REALITY, and how we live along the lines, so clearly not the MADE UP TYPES…..hahaha hope you like the posts !
Hello there lovelies, the idea of love is totally difficult yet dangerous, but on some pedestals of life we find ourselves questioning our very existence, I haven’t been able to pen down my personal life on my blog, my write ups of Amore has been more about fashion and lifestyle, but I’ll be now putting up my write ups, it’s a collection of sorts and I hope you guys would enjoy it,
This evening I am sitting in Starbucks and writing this amazing article that sort of is the contemplation of what can be and what remains, as you know I have taken over the Animal Kingdom Prints of the world, it’s my way of understanding the co-existence policy of the human world, are we really getting along ? Or are we all heading to the bundle of emotions and a direction that probably wouldn’t make much sense ?
Animals/ Reptiles have a better understanding Than humans and they happen to understand the rules and law of the land better than most, it’s probably more balanced than we could ever achieve, no wonder that we find ourselves often driven towards them in ways unknown to us,
In our daily life we take these prints for an out and about of sorts, we have allowed these prints to dominate our wardrobe, it’s an amazing feeling, I don’t know what’s the feeling like, but surely it brings a Fearless and a more in control attitude, these prints are bold and fabulous and frankly a lot to tolerate, today’s print is a special one, my take though on it is more out there and basic, one is out and out look created last year and the other one is when I clicked these images to bring a more balanced and neutral feel to them, I think these pieces if paired and styled well can bring a good style and understated yet perfect vibe,
Well welcome the Bold-Est print in the animal kingdom, the Snake print, well the Faux one of course, I am absolutely against animal cruelty, it’s a miracle that pulling away their skin is now banned and quite something to be thankful for, I cannot imagine anything more painful, the Shedding of the Snake skin is seasonal and it means rebirth for the Snakes, they are Referred to as Nature’s true Guardians and these beings are anything but sartorial, they are rich in their ways and they instigate Fear with their presence around, Snakes only prefer to live in their wilderness and are not comfortable with Human life, it’s a peace somehow chosen by them, they are grounded and represent Power and Fear topped with mesmerising Hypnotic beings, they are celebrated, and this makes them good yet bad in their own way,
I have often written about them, specially when I decided to give this print a try, I wore a Snake Print Dress for the first time in my life for my 21st birthday which I bought from French Connection, so somehow they print made way into my wardrobe very early, I am sharing that picture here too, where I am sitting in my Best friends lap…..hahahaha
The first one was an all and all look that I purchased from H&M in 2019 and decided to be RAD and just wear the entire print, of course it was purely experimental,
The second one is of course my post lockdown look where I paired one Shirt three ways and the same look how it can make a different impact, we seriously lack creativity when it comes to reusing our wardrobe pieces, I like to take them for a spin of my own, and that’s what I did here provided a no make up and a normal go to look for any individual who is looking to add this bold print in their wardrobe,
The last one is definitely coming from a winter perspective where I decided to pair a high neck sweater top with the Snake Skin print pants and it’s more on the curvy, sexy, yet stylish style, it’s a little to out there when you just want to Accentuate your curves and give them the desired love and highlight you are craving !
Well hope you enjoy this beautiful and yet simple and classic post and yes I have posted when these particular looks have been shot, Via my Instagram, it’s better to get the timeline right ! And again like all the other prints this is again a special 12 Am post !
P.S the 2019 look is with make up, the October 2020 look is without make up and so is the November look ! I hope you enjoy reading this article ! Thank you ! 💐
On one fine day when one wakes up, we find ourself in a place where we probably didn’t imagine life to bring us, I am right now standing at one such point in life, I never thought life would require me to be unkind and harsh, surely these times have changed me, but as always I will give myself the time I require, but I am in no mood to tolerate or forgive, all I want is my distance,
I have always forgiven the ones that have hurted me and move away from those people, but this is probably the first time in life where I am being asked to not only accept but tolerate the ones that I can’t stand, it’s a weird choice of life that I don’t wish to make, I am not okay with some people and I would want them to accept that too, it’s a place where you just walk away and accept the other person as dead,
These places and tough times brings us close to our own reality and makes us understand why those decisions were made and then you are unapologetic and you just know it’s what you want and what you wish to put up with,
I am finding my self more at peace with my choices, my rudeness, my complexities and somehow I am more accepting that probably I am suppose to have that attitude and ask people to walk away and not expect any greater for them out of me,
Life surely is changing and showing me shades that I probably didn’t think I would witness, my style frankly has changed and yet bought a lot of comfort along, I am not more balanced and understanding of my emotions, my needs and my wants, and my past definitely has no place in this present moving forward, I just know there are some I can’t choose peace with, not because there is malice or anything bad, but more like I don’t wish too,
I am ready to close the book, actually perhaps I have already closed the book and left almost nothing there, to understand, it’s a life post blog, full of emotions and understanding factors of one’s life, I am more and more closer to myself and getting far away from people, it’s a metaphor, I have often found people not understand metaphor, life is so many colours, for me it’s a spectrum of black and white, it gets more dark on somedays and on Somedays it fades, emotions is perhaps more fickle, it’s like a bullet out of a gun that left and you perhaps wished at that moment that it was you, but you know life is too beautiful and giving up isn’t even an option, even if the depths of the ocean is perhaps pulling you towards it, it’s not love that probably contemplates, but an unsaid reality that beckons, I read about the spectrum of love and colours of love some days ago somewhere and I just was amazed to find out as to how complicated such emotion can be,
Difficult or not but definitely difficult to live by , and each day you find yourself at the end of the ocean wishing that somehow it chooses to pull you away with it when you have failed to see the silver lining, but when born with the fighter spirit, death isn’t even an option, but calm and patience is perhaps more satisfying, on some days you find yourself spreading your arms and freely dancing away to glory, not because you feel free, but because you realise there is nothing that can perhaps bring the peace that your heart was wandering for, so many mood and so many emotions, just a heart to heart conversation the one you have with your friend over a cup of coffee, while I am sitting here with my cup of coffee, just asking you guys to live your best emotions and enjoy your fantastic life and steal those moments whenever necessary, well because you never know !
Lots of love and happiness wishing you all an amazing love and freedom of your soul, just a simple write up, GoodNight !
P.S these are random images with no make up and just being while I chose to get out and about for coffee !

Hello lovelies ! I can officially declare my life as a Busy chaos, I have lived out of the most unrealistic experiences the last month, and no I was very active on Instagram but didn’t care about posting any blog post, I decided to also take some time off just to unwind and do something, after a difficult January, I needed the time and I love how everyone has been so kind and understanding, I am going to post a summary of all of my post i posted in feb, but yes I know I can’t blame my situation for my absence,
But can you ever time your absence ? No not really you’ll never know why something took over your emotions or your life, you will never know what’s to come, or what showed up, I waited to know something for so many years, I find myself so closer to the reality today, the familiarity, the element, the anger and all that was shared is now a distant reality, it’s a distance I lived for such a long time, and now I want to change so many things in the past, but I know I have no control over it, have you guys ever found yourself in such a position ?
Imagine can you face your fear ? In the year 2019 I took a sudden holiday flight with my mother to Singapore, and since then my life was busy a travel journey, and some how Corona came along and took a hold of emotions and life that probably couldn’t find the standing, it’s not a one last flight, but a Flight to come, but probably I dreaded my entire life and something I knew 4 years ago, and probably more safe than anything one could expect,
Doesn’t the unknown bring any fear to me ? No it doesn’t that’s why I went bungy jumping when I was in Singapore(2019), I even readied my sweet Shimla(2020) travel post In January I updated about that on Instagram, and no it didn’t make it, I saw my self being on a Prowl for a long time, but I have personally chosen to not travel or take any journeys ever since lockdown opened up, well I was right, we are in March 2021 speaking of another Lockdown, I want to personally lock up all those who travelled when the lockdown opened up and didn’t understand the seriousness of an Epidemic , but as always I handled things the way I handle them, and here I am sitting at Starbucks writing this post right now on 16th March 2021 at 9:15 pm and starting right where I left things, and I came to Starbucks after two whole months and decided to sit, my family hasn’t been out and about for long time, the last time I went to a Cafe was the first week of January and after Snowy( my pet Persian) cat got sick, I just consciously made this choice for my family, I have only limited myself and my family for take out, and groceries shopping, why ? Well safety and precaution better than cure, just 2 days ago someone broke my car Glass, I would never understand what people get by doing this,
Why do these things happen with me ? Well it’s because of my write ups, in the coming days you’ll find the answer to why I have riled so many people up, reality apparently becomes too much for these people to handle, and I choose to put them in words, I follow rules and regulation with utmost care, I have watched many people trying to frame me in these past months but they have terribly failed at it, well why so ? Well because truth always wins and yes yes my attitude helps too,
So this look has been shot many many months ago,…….hahaha I posted a sneak peak some months ago but never ended posting the look, and here I am bringing a whole lot of Catty Print, leopard to be Exact, yes it’s MORE ME THAN ONE CAN EXPECT, but to be honest I LOVE MY ANIMAL PRINTS, one look is posing while in the WILDERNESS (CLOSER TO NATURE) and the other one is while Posing in the CONCRETE JUNGLE ( City ) there is hardly anyone who can give me competition in that arena……hahahahah, you’ll spot me bringing a whole lot of animal kingdom prints and emphasising as how these pieces are fashion classic and you’ll find them in every woman’s Wardrobe, it’s one of a kind love,
So make sure you stay tuned, as a lot of it would be coming up on this blog in the coming days, I have many many things and bytes to share with you guys, thank you once again for being so amazing and supportive, lots of love and happiness and good wishes to each one you reading this !
