That time of year…

Once Diwali is over I start feeling very reflective about the year and all that could/should have happened but did not happen. This feeling is very heavy & overwhelming and most of the time it really gets me down. One of the ways in which I have been able to beat it is to have…

Them Greys

I have started and restarted this post about 87 times now but could not find the words to say what I wanted to say. This usually does not happen to me. I usually have an idea of what I want to write before I even sit in front of the screen. Another thing that I…

Ink Pen Revival

One of the side effects of using the bullet journal is that I don’t look at the screen to organise any more. Before the bullet journal was part of my daily routine I was relying on google calendar , ever-note, any do and so many more apps to organise. All these were absolutely fabulously and…

Bullet Journal Day :: 08.08.2017

Like most of us I came across the Bullet Journal System through Boho Berry. When I saw it for the first time I was already deep inside the planner community bubble on the internet. A planner system was just what I needed to organise my life and my time. What really resonated with me while…

The Value of Money :: Parenting

Money is a very taboo subject. We have from an early age been taught that it’s not right to talk about it. And it just makes us all uncomfortable. I really did not want that to be the case for Miss Z. Just like we talk about being safe and what to do if Miss…

Hard Work And Smart Work

I remember writing this post like it was yesterday. And yet again I  was flooded with a whole lot of ideas and “resolutions”. In all of those thoughts I realised that i was looking for the same thing. Independence. Before I moved to Mumbai I was working. I was independent and a very big part…

Milestones and then some…

With only 10 some days for 2017 to begin this time of the year is usually spent looking back. Its not the most pleasant of experiences. I usually end up asking myself questions like “why did you not follow up on that idea?” Why did you not try harder?” “why are you not closer to…

Upkeep :: Wallet

There are certain things that we all use on the daily. I have always felt that they are the things that one should invest in. One of those things is a wallet. At the mall over the weekend I came across the Cross Store and was very pleasantly surprised with the designs. I especially liked…

Presentable :: Everyday Makeup

Having an almost 3 year old means there is very little time to make oneself look presentable. I have finally been able to get the whole routine down to the basics. Its almost down to a science. Base :  I reach for  the Bourjois Happy Lights Foundation almost everyday. It has a light to medium coverage….

Coping With Mondays

Every Sunday night I feel like I have been hit by a ton of bricks. Monday just creeps up and takes me by surprise and I start to get flustered with all that should have been done. I have only now realised that I can never be prepared enough for Monday. But I have found…
