I am writing to you to let you know how I feel about blogging today on 25th of feb. 2017. I am sitting here in this dark room while typing on laptop placed on a dining table, gazing at this familiar space, where I draft my blog post and I feel content. I feel Joyous. why specifically am I telling you this today is because, it has been a while that I felt this way. Does the idea of- “Blogging is FUN!” resonates to me now ? Since few days, unfortunately, it didn’t. This reminds me of a poem that I read on fellow blogger, Rekha’s blog which was about forgetting self. when I started blogging, I believed in blogging about who I was, what I felt, what I loved, the simple pleasures, a little of all those things from my life that I enjoyed doing and that made me happy. I felt that there was so much to life, there was joy in slightest, simplest, littlest things in life. It depended entirely on our perspective. I mean, either I could be inspired by the beauty of simple pleasures or disheartened by the thought which haunts us every now and then, starting particularly with “what if” and “why”.
I headed to instagram few days back to share my posts partly and partly because I too wanted to Join instagram just like millions of people around the world. Being honest, Instagram is a huge source for inspiration and is very beautiful. I could find awe-inspiring posts that could make me feel so many emotions at the same time. Especially those cute pets, omg! I was overjoyed and those flowers as well.I thank all the content creators around the world who are striving to make Internet a beautiful place. Henceforth, Sharing some of those precious Insta moments with you to share the Joy.
This video here makes me feel so sleepy. The cat is super adorable.
Hmm, so my conclusion so far is that,
Blog, because it makes you happy. Blog for fun. Be You. Because You is unique, beautiful and interesting. There will always be someone better and more polished, learning from them and growing day by day is important rather than being daunted and giving up.

A custom made Journal titled Joie de vivre. As my inspiration from blogging comes from everyday life, there are times when I just get an idea for a post and I rush to jot it down. Of course, I do it wherever possible, in evernote, notepad or cell phone but it would be really nice to have a Journal like below :

What I need next is an Inspiration board. If you search pinterest you will find many ideas. why I need an inspiration board is because I want to pin up all the things that motivate me, from quotes to inspiring people to anything I like.

The Blogger Recognition Award probably was founded by Eve Estells. This award was created with such a great intentions to make a connection between bloggers to help each other.
Also she set a few requirements (numbered rules below) to receive this award.
Rules for this award :
Rule 1: Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
Rule 2: Provide a link to the award creator.
Rule 3: Attach the award to your post.
Rule 4: Nominate fifteen other bloggers, excluding yourself and the person who nominated you.
Rule 5: Write a brief story of how you started your blog.
Rule 6: A piece or two of advice to new bloggers.
Rule 7: Comment on the blogs you have named here to let them know you have nominated them.
How I started my blog…
One fine day, I just grabbed my laptop and decided to just post what i loved doing. The inspiration came from real life experiences, realization of the fact that i was truly happy when i enjoyed the little pleasures of life, as it was, embracing my blessings and being grateful for it. 🙂 Blogging tbh was not planned, it just happened. I love it although. I live what i blog, style,music, food or anything you see here. My expectations were little but i was rewarded more than i actually deserved and so I am kind of really thankful to the blogosphere. That is why i keep saying, this place is full of good people and as Uldis says, spread Love.
Tips for new bloggers:
I will keep it short. Two words to stick to no matter what-
Love : Love yourself and love others.. Love is the core of all good things in the world. when i say love yourself, i mean love what you do and if you don’t, quit. In the whole process of blogging, do not lose yourself.
Authentic: Be original. Be genuine. well if you are simply copying ideas, then why blog? if you know what i mean. so wouldn’t it be great if you write what you like and show what you are all about than copy someone.
Also, respect other’s work. I have said this earlier. I like posts of bloggers who like my post, follow whoever follows me, because that is how it should be. That is how it is in real world. Process of give and take makes a balanced world. When a bird eats a fruit from a tree, it returns the favor by dropping seeds wherever it goes thus giving birth to a new tree.

On february 2, I was nominated by Lesley for Sunshine Award, here. I really am thankful to her for this nomination.
Lesley blogs,Working look is a style blog with some great style tips which every stylista will benefit from and her impeccable posts on capsule wardrobe are a must check, please Visit her Click.
About Sunshine Award :
The Sunshine Award is a chance to spread love through the blogosphere by honouring other bloggers who’s work inspires us in some way. The idea is to thank the person who nominated you, answer your nominator’s questions, check out the other nominees and create your own questions for those you choose to nominate.
So now that you know what the rules are, let’s have a look at questions, Lesley has for the nominees.
- If you could only wear one type of outfit for the rest of your life, what would it be?
- Name one outfit you would love to wear but don’t because it doesn’t fit your lifestyle?
- How are your fashion choices influenced by our growing awareness of the environmental/humanitarian price of clothing?
Interesting questions, isn’t it? Here goes my answers.
Answer 1: If I could only wear one type of outfit for the rest of my life, it would be my current love, Joggers and a crop tee, matched with trainers and a satchel bag. 🙂
Answer 2: Shorts. Although i do wear them but usually when there are girls around, on vacation or paired with leggings.
Answer 3 : This is an interesting question. Honestly may be high time for me to keep that in mind while buying clothes. I have been unaware of the possible damages clothing manufacturers were causing to the environment, so far. Thanks for bringing my attention towards it. Possibly I will start to consider it and try to wear what is called Eco-fashion.
And my nominees are :
And your questions are 🙂
- Who are your style inspirations?
- One fashion item you would like to erase from the history of fashion?
- Describe yourself with a movie name? 🙂
Lesley, Thanks again for this beautiful nomination and your questions.
