Healthier and shinier Hair Ft. Sesa Onion Haircare

There are plenty of hair care products available in the market which claims to give you marvelous hair but can they really fulfill their claims? It is important to choose the right product. And only products with natural ingredients are best for your hair, believe me!
Glow And Shine Like Never Before
The other day, I and a few of my friends decided to catch up at my home. Due to the pandemic, we all had kind of lost touch and this get-together would be our little reunion. The plan was sudden, and I wanted to be the best host. I looked around at the mess. It seemed my compact 2 bhk had faced the wrath of lockdown and not just that. I looked at myself and wasn’t pleased with the sight too.
No parlour, and no self-pampering made me feel sad and that made me look pale. Nope! That had to change. Both my house and I needed a glow and I think I knew what the need of the hour was.
Consent Matters Even If It’s A Rat
Disclaimer : Before you make any assumptions, I am talking about a real rat with tantrums double its size. However, it can be interpreted in several ways. The story you’re about to read is true and NO RATS WERE HURT IN THE PROCESS (YET). Can’t guarantee the same for their feelings though.
Styling Wrap Dress Under Rs 499 Ft. Symbol
If you know me at all, I am always in the search for some good outfits that do not cost me my entire salary. 😉
That being said, I agree I do tend to over splurge at times but most of the time, I am shopping with a budget in mind without wanting to compromise on the quality.
I have no issues with high-end brands but if you’re someone who likes to shop a lot and wants to go easy on pocket then this is one dress that I would highly recommend.
Creative Backdrop Ideas At Home Ft. BrandMeUp
Running out of backdrops but need to take creative shots anyways? I hate using the same backdrop again and thus am always in a lookout for a way to have different layouts. That however is not possible and honestly it’s not easy and feasible to have a new setup every time. What do I do then? These ideas might help you. Is it easy? No! but is it worth it? Yes!

Disclaimer : This post is high on Sugar. Indulge in the sweetness at your own risk.
This Sugar, however is not for you to consume but for your skin to eat .
Recently I got hold of the Ultimate Sugar Scrub from Vasu Healthcare and all I can say is that why did I not notice it before?
My Little Jar Of Secret For Healthy Hair
Imagine, you wake up one morning and of course it’s a beautiful day. You yawn and casually take a glance at your pillow, only to see handful of hair. Great start to the day. Right? Naaa… Moving on… You plan to wash your hair that day and that only means another handful of hair down the drain. You’re clearly getting bald (even though your parents tell you otherwise ).
I am going to share my secret with you because enough is enough! No space for hair trouble in my paradise.
I Am A Verified Amazon Influencer Now 📸
Disclaimer : Before you begin, this blog is about Polaroids and me in the Polaroids(to be honest it’s mostly about me). I just liked how Asteroids rhymed with it. Nevertheless I will share a piece of information so you don’t feel betrayed. I googled and trust me when I say, I googled hard and finally found that an asteroid has a slim chance of entering the earth’s atmosphere on November 2. Interesting! Right?
Know The Tricks That Dogs Use To Avoid Taking Bath 🐕
I have like 100 Dog tricks up my fur but nothing works. I have tried hiding under the bed. I have tried fake sleeping. I even tried acting dead once but my human is least concerned. She drags me to the washroom (each and every time) and applies those fancy foamy things called shampoo on me. Argh!!! Even my best puppy voice(which is hard to make once you’re a grown-up dog) doesn’t melt her heart.
Word Of Caution: Do not try to act like a Stuffed toy amidst all other Soft toys. You not only can’t deceive the human, but she also makes sure to wash those soft toys in the washing machine. Horrifying right? It’s like if I am going down, I am taking you all down with me and I am not that type of dog. I dog swear!
Artistic Thursday: Beach Please!!!
This Quarantine made me go back to painting after a long long time and I am so glad it did. I was running out of few colors but I mixed and matched the colors to paint something that I was longing for. No brownie points for any guesses. Beach it is. I can’t wait to visit the beaches once everything is fine. Last year I explored 3 hill stations and not a single Beach. Well! I had plans to do so this year but I doubt that’s possible now.Till then, Get all the beach vibes that you can out of this newly added painting in my Gallery for Artistic Thursday. Let me know what you think of it.
Getting Ready To Go From One Room To Another|The Saree Saga
How much time do you think I have to wake up, makeup, and get all dressed up just to go… nowhere? Have you ever done something like this?I got this sudden urge to try practicing eye makeup (because I suck at it) and even though it was an epic fail I went ahead and applied lipstick and it was that moment when I realized I did all this for nothing. How sad?
Work From Home Or Work Of Home?🤔
Have you ever seen the trailer of a movie and decided whether it’s worth watching or not? Well! 2020 started as a comedy trailer and turned into a horror movie and now everyone wants to avoid it just like a Ram Gopal Verma movie but can’t. Hands down. 2020 gets the Most Disastrous year Award of the decade. It’s like 2020 was supposed to be one of the best years because of the digits(or whatever). Turns out we got bamboozled and all my tantrums of being daddy’s princess and not doing any household chores in the past are trying to set scores with me.
The Best Of Both Worlds🌎

Double Trouble – What Goes Around Comes Around|Finale|Thriller
It was midnight when she woke up. It was chilly out there and her body was strangely cold. Weird because it was summer and it had been mercilessly hot. The surrounding wasn’t familiar either. How did she reach there? Standing up on her feet, she felt immense pain in her body. She had scratches all over her. Shit! She had told Amanda about someone watching over her. Arghh!!! She shouldn’t have. She wanted to run away but where to? She didn’t even know where she was. All she saw were shadows. Not one but thousands of them and they were all coming towards her. Panic-stricken she hoped this could be a dream. She must be hallucinating. Right? This couldn’t be true. She pinched herself hard in the hope to wake up but it was no dream. She could feel the pinch and the shadows were still there.
Welcome to Finale of the short Thriller series : Double Trouble. Hope you guys like it.
Double Trouble – Shh!!! Shadows Can Talk |Part 1|Thriller
It was hard for her to not know who she was. She wanted to be left alone but again there was always this hunch that someone was staring at her. She could see the shadow but couldn’t make any sense of it. In her subconscious mind, she knew what it was but was afraid to acknowledge it. She even informed this to her doctor but he had said it was all in her imagination.
Like really? How imaginative could one be after memory loss?
Things were fine, initially. It was only when she started noticing things when she woke up one morning. It felt like someone had slept beside her. The sheets were all ruffled up. She remembered locking her door before going off to sleep and as a matter of fact who would sleep? Her mother wasn’t the kind to invade her privacy. This soon became a routine and she couldn’t help but get paranoid over little things now. The presence felt oddly familiar. Taking her medicines would calm her a little but was it going to her in the long run?
This is part 1 of the short series and Finale will be up in 2 days from now.Stay Tuned!!!
Know What’s Going On In A Child’s Mind👶
During the birth of a child in a movie it would show the pregnant lady lying in bed, crying hysterically in pain and suddenly there would be a crying baby beside her. I would be confused but I assumed that was the process. I actually believed the baby would just somehow appear and the tummy would reduce. Simple right? If cupid could make two people fall in love, I was sure he would be able to slide the baby beside too. Right? I didn’t really know then how a child was born. (Until I studied biology and that horrified me to bits). My way of analogy was much better. Don’t you think so?
To Pee Or Not To Pee In Public Restrooms 🚽
It’s time we stopped being so shy. It’s time to say no to the infections that women encounter after using dirty public restrooms. Often while traveling the biggest challenge faced by us is to use the public restrooms which trust me is a horrifying sight. The filthy and unhygienic atmosphere is not the only thing that you find once inside. It’s that moment when you think about how lucky the boys are because they don’t need to sit and pee. Did you know how harmful it can be for you to use the washroom that is such an unhygienic mess? One can probably end up getting infections which is oh so painful again.
What if I tell you, that we girls can have that luxury too! Peebuddy has invented this amazing stand and pee kit where all you need to do is stand, aim and pee. It’s budget friendly and something which every girl should definitely carry while traveling. I am so glad I had found my perfect buddy in Pee Buddy.

The Barking Dogs And The Honking Cars 🐾
The only thing that I really don’t get is why they bark and run after a car? Do they want to drive the car? Or are they just bored and want to have some fun? True Scenario : It’s a silent lane. You’re driving casually and suddenly you see a bunch of dogs barking and running towards you quite ferociously. The dogs don’t know you’re a dog lover inside. What do you do then? I usually can’t help but bark along. I know! I know! This is a weird confession but when a dog barks, I feel the need to bark too. Oh god! Tell me it happens to you too. In my defense, I just like giving them company but that’s my approach and I have no intention to rectify this too. What do you do?
Travelogue : Ooty Through My Eyes 👁👁
Welcome to my Travelogue. Hop on board to view some amazing pictures from my recent trip to Ooty. It is undoubtedly the queen of hills. A specially curated video and some amazing pictures just for you.
To be honest, I have been to many hill stations before but Ooty made me want to stay there for a few more days. Unfortunately I had to wrap up the trip in just 2 days (not enough) but still enough for it to leave a mark on my mind. Hope you enjoy.

Sorry House!!! It’s Not Me, It’s You 👉🏻
Initial months were fine and we were going along really well. That’s the lovey dovey stage of all the relationships (if you know what I mean). I almost fell in love with it and just when I thought my decision was perfect, reality stuck me hard. It was almost like dating someone you don’t know. At first I thought it would be fine in some time and just like any other relationship I wanted to give it another chance too. But again, just like some relations don’t deserve another chance, so did this one. Harsh? Welcome to the real world. Now you may wonder why things didn’t work out between us and what made me search for a new one. Right? It wasn’t exactly his fault but it was time to move on. All I could say (finally) was: It’s not me, it’s you. 😉
When Life Gives You Onions, Use It On Your Hair🌰
Statutory Warning : Some Onions were hurt during the process and it was intentional. You might want to cry if you’re emotional but good thing is this onion doesn’t activate your tear-falls but does reduce hair fall.
I had always heard that Onions were good for hair but never really thought of how to use them. To begin with, the smell isn’t a pleasant one and God knows how to even apply them. So yes, the process is alarming enough and to be honest who would have the time to cut onions and cry along with? Not me!!! I would never do that kind of hard work. I am way too lazy. ( Sadly, that’s not a good thing to boast about). Sighh!!!
PS : Do you face similar problems too when you change places? Like your hair has to get accustomed to the new water again. Trust me when I say, a lot depends on the type of water that we use and I cannot stress more on this factor.
Unconditionally Yours – Done And Dusted 💔|Series
Truly said, Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus. Can they ever think alike? Can they ever respond to a situation in a similar way? Or do we have to make commends with this aspect itself that their will be differences and lots of compromises to make a relationship work. Yes, they broke up but will that give them the answers that they were looking for? Only time will tell if they miss being together. What will be they prefer? Trapped In Love Or Wrapped In Love ? Stay Tuned.
Friday Collaborations : Where Work Becomes Fun ✌🏻
You got idea, chip in. Want to work together on something? Find me in. 🙂
It’s been one year since I started blogging my heart out and one year since I met such amazing bloggers( read : YOU). If you don’t already know, you all have given me immense happiness and confidence over the time. So much that it’s time to add in a new section to this blog.
What exactly is this and how does it work? Basically I will be working on collaborations on Fridays wherein I will be reviewing some products as per the nature of collaboration and even if it’s not a collaboration I will be reviewing some of the things that I personally love. I will of course continue writing the usual stuffs that I do but hope that you all will give love to this new section as well.
Why Women Prefer To Do Their Own Work?
It’s been ages since women dealt with household work and wouldn’t want men to interfere in between. Men would go out to earn and the women would stay back and make the house suitable enough to call it a Home. The wife doesn’t really want any help from her husband (More so because even if their hubby’s intention is pure and they really want to help, they end up messing and increasing the wife’s workload). Thankfully the notion has changed right now and both men and women work so that they can lead an independent life and it is their personal choice of what they want to pursue. That said, I do acknowledge the fact that nowadays even men actively take part in household activities which is great.
The Battle Of Black And White 🙆🏻
Warning : Welcome to this otherwise useless post.(I think and you will agree)
Spoiler Alert : This is about the one white hair that hides all the black hair. Random bantering. So apologies!
The hair doesn’t fall off on its own which makes me wonder – is white hair stronger than the black ones? I have combed, I have shampooed and lost few black hair in the battle but this white one seems to be going strong. Food for thought? Hope the black ones win in the long-term. 😉 Also next time you see my white hair, act cool.
Unconditionally Yours- Her Version 👩🏻| Series
Trapped In Love Or Wrapped In Love? Loosing yourself is not the option.
3 years into the relationship, he could still manage to give her those butterfly feelings in her stomach. Being around Ryan meant the world to her. He was the most caring person she had ever met. It was genuine and she could feel it. He was her go to person for everything. She just knew they were meant to be together. He always brought out the best of her. To be fair, the worst as well and she couldn’t help it. She was trying hard not to complicate things between them but seemed to fail anyways. Somewhere the chord wasn’t tuning in perfectly as it used to be.
Since when did things become so complicated? She wasn’t doing something wrong. Or was she?
Black Day For India – Time To Stop Playing Safe 🙏🏻
When I say my country I am mostly referring to our army men, our Jawans. I am not concerned about my safety or even yours because we are in safe hands as long as we have our Jawans. The question that is constantly bothering me is if they are protecting us shouldn’t there be someone protecting them too? I don’t know who but are we just going to be mere spectators?
How could they dare hurt our people? Where in the world did they get the courage to attack our soldiers and leave their family in a state of bereavement. I just cannot imagine what their family must be going through right now. For them the pain is going to last forever. When was the last time they met? What was the last talk they had? Was the hug long-lasting enough to not feel the need of it again? What were our Jawans last thought? Most probably Jai Hind. Such people exist. Yes, selfless love exists.
Unconditionally Yours- His Version 👨🏻| Series
Trapped In Love Or Wrapped In Love?
Keeping the book aside , he realized she wasn’t one of those out of the world gorgeous girl that the books he read mostly stated. Thank God for that. He always felt the books and movies exaggerated everything. The beautiful girl, the handsome boy. Their perfect relationship. Why on earth do they attempt so hard to raise the standard of expectation of how perfect something can be? It’s fine to not be perfect. How glad he was that Kathy was just a normal-decent girl with a take on life for everything. Just the kind of girl he wanted. Beautiful in and out. Always high on life. A bit of moody though, now that he knew her so well. A bit too well. He could know what mood she was in just by the way she replied to his texts.
If life was treating them so well then what was it that was bothering him? He loved her, she loved him. That’s all that matters. Right? Wrong. Sometimes too much of love could also suffocate you.
To Break Up Or Not With The Accidental Soulmate 🤕
It’s not that I feel unwanted. It’s just the opposite in fact. Never have I felt alone because I always have something that can keep me busy. I am never bored because it can keep me amused all the time. I can actually cancel plans without feeling guilty by saying I am busy (taking care of myself). You can say I am being stalked because wherever I go, it stays by my side. Of course initially it was a little alarming but I got used to its company. I don’t remember when and how it started but now I cannot imagine my life without it. The worst part is I don’t care for it but it can hurt my feelings a lot. Like bring tears to eyes (without any fail) almost every time.
Now you really want to meet my soulmate. Right? Fine. It’s little shy though. Never comes out openly but also never fails to embarrass me in front of others.

How To Be A Santa And Not Get Caught 🎅
I always tried hard to stay awake and watch the door for any sign but then I was also a sleepy girl(still am) and each time I would end up sleeping and then waking up to the gifts miraculously placed behind my pillow. Santa would at times play with me too. He would drop in chits here and there mysteriously and each written chit would be a hint to where my gift could be. Didn’t seem like Santa had a busy night ahead. 😂 but then I must have been a very good girl for Santa to spend so much time at my house. Right?
So many memories and so much fun. All thanks to my Secret Santa who made the day so special with such meticulous planning. I have till date not caught my Santa red handed. 😀 but let me know if you have? 😉
Tragic Queen And One Of Her Escapades 👑
Sometimes, the little mistakes that you make, goes a long way to make you the laughing-stock for others and trust me when I say that I am the queen of making blunders.
I remember waking up with a smile on my face (I usually feel happy the day I have something new to wear. Even Office seems appealing.) Yeah, I know. Things can quickly go against you if you’re not careful enough. The good thing is I survived. (Again) The bad thing is I doubt I learnt my lesson. Lol.
Spoiler Alert : Something Big On The Way 🖌️
My lazy bones suddenly got activated and kicked out my laziness. I am super excited to share this news with you all.
I am going to be a part of an Art Exhibition.It’s all the more special because of its motto.
1. It’s going to be a platform for all the unknown artists from various fields of life (Homemakers, Doctors, engineers etc) who have immense talent but do not have the time or correct platform to display their talent.
2. A whole wall is going to be dedicated to the underprivileged kids who are amazing painters but do not have any way to showcase their talent. This platform would surely motivate them to pursue their dream further.
When I came to know of the cause I was like why not? I went to the organization myself and couldn’t help but fall in love with the kids. They may not lead a luxurious life or have all the necessities in life but they sure have a big heart and a contagious smile on their faces. That’s the perfect combination. Isn’t it? It makes me want to visit them again and again and I am sure I soon will. For now I interviewed 5 shy artists from the lot but I will reveal them in another post so stay tuned. 🙂
When You Are Terrible At Remembering Names🙈
I usually remember names but yes there are times when I am talking to the person like a long-lost friend and all that is processing in my mind is what’s the name of this person. The bonding makes the people around assume that you’re best of buds but all you can think of is “Oh God! Don’t let her know I don’t remember her name.”
It’s understandable though if the friend is your parents. Right? Like how am I supposed to remember someone I met when I was small? They are like ” Hey! You have grown up so much. Remember me?” – No I don’t but somehow I don’t want to hurt his feelings and so I tell him that “Of course! I remember you” (Hoping he wouldn’t further ask me about anymore details) but his expectant face reveals how much he is waiting for me to utter his name. Dad??? Come on! Help me!!! He is your friend.
Fine! Such situations are still acceptable but what if the other person is your friend? There is this moment that I am going to share with you all which I am not so proud of.
How To Get An Indoor Swimming Pool Against Your Wishes🏊
So everything was working just as planned. The main plan being laying on my bed watching Netflix. The thing is I got engrossed in it so much that I failed to see that slowly I was surrounded by a 1 feet deep water. I noticed it only when the door bell rang and I put my foot down in search of my slippers. The exact thought? I am so dead.
But Wait!!! That’s not just it. The water had spread evenly (if I might just add) throughout my 1 BHK that I live in. The pipe from the washing machine had somehow freed itself and was doing its own snake dance while vomiting the water. It was such a nightmare. Trust me. It took me 2 hours to soak the water in towel and squeeze it in the bucket because there was no outlet as such where I could just sweep the water out.
Do you think the washing machine took its revenge on me? I think I have never worked so hard before in cleaning my house. Thankfully my recliner and my bed was safe. I should definitely treat my machine with love the next time. 😉
Direct Dil Se: From One Heart To Another 💕
Tell me, have you ever run away from something you absolutely love? Suddenly but not deliberately though. It’s like whole life you have craved for something and the moment you get the taste of it you somehow lose the value of it only to realize it later how ignorant you’ve been the whole time. Life is not a bed of roses. There. I said it. I accept the old saying. But what I am not going to accept is that the moment life becomes a bit tough, you forget what you initially gave in to reach this stage.
What does blogging mean to you? Does it help you cope up with your life in any way? It does for me and I may not have a perfect life but I treat my blog to be the perfect flavor that I have in my life. As I write this, I am confused as to what made me stop writing in the first place. Was it the hectic schedule that I was having or was it just an excuse for me? I sure could take out time to breath. I know that’s the necessity but isn’t writing supposed to be a necessity for those who claim to be bloggers?
Friday! Stop Acting Like You’re Monday!!! 🚫
You know the saying “the way to a mans heart is through his stomach?” Well let me tell you, I may not be man but this is so true for me. I cannot walk or talk with empty stomach let alone work. I am in a very serious relationship with food. I may be a bad cook but am definitely a goot eater. Come on! Someone get me food right now and it better be something tasty. Don’t mind (I might get bossy when I am hangry) LOL
PS: Let me know how’s your Friday treating you so far. Do you get angry when you’re hungry too? Oh and what’s the fastest and easiest recipe that you have made to fill your stomach? I will try to make that once I am home. Now don’t give me daredevil recipes which involves fire or knifes. 😛 I just realized that I am hopeless. Fine! I will eat something outside.
When Horror Movies Give You Goosebumps👻
To all those who find horror movies to be hilarious, well I am not one of them. Though I was quite courageous as a child( as I was told by my parents.) I could go inside a dark room and not freak out. Wow! should I get bravery award for that? However, as I grew up, the horror movies messed up my brain child and now I am very cautious to light up the room before entering it. Yeah. It totally sucks.
For me Horror movies is a Big No-No. I just cannot watch it with my eyes open. So might as well skip watching one. Right?
What I really want to know is do you believe in such stories and the 3 AM concept? I know I might end up get more scared reading some real life experiences but I am all ears (Err eyes) to learn something that I wasn’t aware of.
Know What A Dog Thinks When The Human Decides To Travel 📝
8:00 AM : I am really not in a mood to bark right now. I just saw my human pack her bags. Where does she think she is going?
9:00 AM : I sulked and made my best puppy face ever. She coo-chi cooed me for a while but was back to packing stuffs. What does a dog have to do to get heard? Maybe I won’t have my breakfast and then she would notice.
10:00 AM : I am so full right now. I know I was on a strike but my human just gave me pedigree for breakfast. She never does that. Why is she being extra nice? I smell something Pedigree. Maybe some of it is still left in my plate.
Artistic Thursday : Handmade Coasters 🗺️
I love using handmade stuffs and I thought why not make a coaster. I am a galaxy person. I love anything mystical and magical. What kind of person are you? What do you think of these? Should I make more? I am already in love with these and cannot get enough of them. Give me some suggestions of what texture you want the next set of coasters to be and I will make sure to make them and present it before you. Till then, make your own galaxy and let’s all hope we have our happily ever after in it.
What Kind Of Animal Are You?🐯
Have you ever been told which kind of animal you’re ? Maybe when you broke something in your house, your angry mom compared you to some animal stating even that animal is well-behaved but not you. Or maybe when you scored less in your Math exam, your father compared your brain to that of an animals?
My father keeps telling me I am a Goat. I don’t blame him though. I keep doing such things to justify his saying. Like when I was small, there was this phone call for dad. My dad told me to inform the person that he was not at home. So like a good kid I told the person that my dad has told me to tell you that he is not at home right now. My father having heard this immediately got up and took the call. My mom and sister on the other hand could not control their laughter. My father joined in too and told me jokingly I was a goat. Now, do you blame him for saying me that?
I have A Thing For Personalized Items📓
So I bought myself a personalized diary to write my thoughts in it. Big deal? Turns out I don’t have much thoughts!!! Only if I knew it before ordering one. Anyways, with each passing day I keep discovering that I have some traits of Joey. First, I don’t like sharing food and now this. I am just a thoughtless person it seems and well I don’t mind being Joey.
I certainly don’t regret buying this. I am in love with it and it looks super cute. All the more reason I don’t want to write but eventually I have to, so I plan to be super cautious and of course write in my best handwriting Possible.Ever.)

When Spam Acts Like Your Best Friend Forever 👥
There is this sweetest stranger Mr Tony (Yes he has a name) who keeps on mailing me to send him my details so he can transfer $15,000,000.00 (Fifteen Million United Dollars) in my account. Now I clearly remember my dad told me that my ancestors were Indian. What I don’t understand is the fact that how could my email be found ( in the Central Computer among the list of unpaid contractors, inheritance, next of kin and lotto beneficiaries that was originated from Africa) Now hold on a second! Did my dad lie to me again just like when he told Santa wasn’t real?
Okay! So I got to clarify my originality from my parents again. I can do that. But wait! Who the hell is this villain Mr Charles in my life now who is after my $15,000,000.00 . This is preposterous. According to Mr Tony, he received an email from one Mr. Charles Wright who told him that he was my next of kin and that I died in a car accident last week. Now this is getting serious. I am pretty sure I am alive. For heavens sake, I am blogging. Right? Although if someone told me I was dead before getting this gentleman’s email I would have been fine. But now with $15,000,000.00 in my name, Na-ah! Not a chance buddy. If need be, I would return back from my grave to claim my money.
When The Remote Plays Hide And Seek 📺
Please be a Sherlock Holmes and solve the mystery for me if you can.Recap to the proceedings of day before and the mystery for you to solve(I sincerely hope) :
I happily surfed the channels and decided to watch Sky High and yes the remote was there with me then. I was in my recliner sofa and when the movie finished(which BTW I feel is a great movie) I wanted to change the channel but couldn’t. There was no remote to be found !!! Now, in between the movie breaks I got up just once for my dinner and then returned to my seat. That’s it and the remote just walked away out of my life. Now I have my suspicion that the recliner ate it up but trust me I have already operated the recliner and it’s not there. 🙄 I searched every corner of my small house and Nopes. Hard luck!!!
Stop Being Selfish And Shop 🛍️
It’s been ages since I was Banned From Shopping Anymore. Okay Fine!!! Maybe it’s been just 1 month that I didn’t feed my already fat wardrobe. But I realized I have been really selfish. All I did was care about the health of my wallet. I wanted it to be healthy wealthy and wise. I never thought that by doing this I was actually neglecting my other love. Wise people (like me) believe that if you don’t show your love constantly for something they tend to get sad and depressed. Don’t we always crave for attention and love? Turns out every other thing can also feel, like human beings.
But What If It’s Too Late | Flash Fiction
~There she was as a kid, playing happily with her mom and dad. Her dad giving her a horse ride on his back. She loved it. Now she hardly called them and felt guilty.
~There she was gossiping with her college friends who were once her lifeline. They would share every little secret(even the dark ones) with each other. Now she hardly knew where they even lived.
~There she was, her boyfriends arm wrapped upon her and the safest place in this world. She loved it how he would tease her and pull her chubby cheeks. She did love him then and still loved him. Only if she had not let him go.

The Road Knows It All 🚦 | Short Story
I started my car in a hurry and sped away from the place as fast as I could. I was speeding and kept telling myself, it’s just in your mind Ellie. Just when I thought things were getting better my car broke down. It was a strange place but luckily for me I could see a car repair shop just a few blocks away. I had no choice but to get drenched and run towards the shop. Two extra happy service men greeted me cheerfully as if glad to see a soul. I explained my condition to them. They agreed to help me. So along they came with me where I had my car. Or at least that’s where I thought I had my car. They looked confused as well. We walked in for a little while and there it was. But that couldn’t be my car. Could it? It was all crumpled and looked like it had been through some sort of accident. Did it happen after I left the car? Wow, that was such a close call.
Can You Smell Your Memories?♨️
Does it make me sound weird if I say sometimes I want to eat a particular smell? Like the smell of petrol. I can never get enough of it. Whenever I am in a petrol pump I am that weirdo who keeps exhaling the smell of petrol like some sort of fresh air. I know it’s poisonous but I want to taste petrol. Maybe on my deathbed. That could be my last wish. What? I would already be dying. Might as well taste it and die a few seconds earlier.
When Cooking Is Just Not Your Cup Of Tea ☕
The other day I cooked. Yes you heard it right and yes it’s summer here. I was all sweaty and my parents were (oh so sympathetic) that their daughter was out their cooking for her survival. I don’t need sympathy. I need a cook!!! Period.
It’s not like I can’t cook at all. I just don’t want to. I don’t get the feeling of internity and happy ending from inside. I have more bruises from oil than I have from anything else that I love to do. If I do feel like cooking something special or new it’s just a one day thing or a one night thing. No strings attached. I can follow the recipes well enough to bring out something edible but each and every time I am in the process of cooking I feel I need to have a chair and definitely an AC to cool me off. I can cook while sitting. I know there are kitchen rules but can we just include a chair in it? Tell me will that make the process any harder or easier because I clearly have no idea whatsoever.
When I Proposed And The House Said Yes !!!
I had seen this particular house long ago in a certain app but each time I would skip it conveniently as the house didn’t look quite appealing. You know how they say first impression is the last one. In layman’s words it didn’t appeal to me at all. Plain and simple.
I still had time but the only problem was I had already told the owner that I would be vacating this month because at that point of time I seemed to have had found the perfect house for me though it kept giving me strange vibes.
With just one week left to vacate, I knew I was in a scoop because the whole house hunting had left me with no choice (and energy) but to vacate the previous house. In what turned out to be my frantic effort I went out to look for the house that had left no impression on me whatsoever. To my surprise and delight(Oh so much relief) the pictures seemed to have done total injustice to the place.
Sometimes the pictures aren’t telling you the truth until you go and see it with your own eyes.
Artistic Thursday : Burning Desire 💥
As much as life is nothing without hope, there isn’t much life can give you unless you have any desire too. You can be hopeful for a better tomorrow but can you get what you want if you don’t aim for it? Or what if we don’t know what we want? Or much worse what if we leave our thoughts there itself, do nothing but just hope that tomorrow will be a better day?
You do know where I am going. Right? To make things happen a certain way we have to put in our desire into work. Hope, of course will keep on doing its job from back-end but from front-end we need to burn in our desires only to rise up more stronger, wiser and better.
Presenting before you my Burning Desire!!!
How To Loose Weight – My Way 💁
To look on the positive side I always feel a bit lighter when I am down with fever. Mostly because I am unable to eat and I feel it’s the right and best way to loose some weight. Weird!!! Right? I know but do you feel so too? I know the glow is lost but at least I loose some weight. I told you I am a positive person 💁
Playing Board Games In The Age Of Video Games🔎
I know it’s the age of PS4 and all but I feel board games connects me with the real people. The pleasure of playing with your friends and family together is unbeatable. The constant bickering and cheater shout outs is missing in video games. Don’t you think so?
If You Were The Creator What Would You Change?
As a child I believed that when we grow old, our parents would become small and we would take care of them like they do for us right now. After certain time they would again grow old and we would become small and they would take care of us. This process would continue in a cyclic manner. It never really crossed my mind then that it wasn’t the logic that God followed. However coming to think of my logic, it would have been great, don’t you think?

To Believe Or Not To Believe In Signs ✡️
The house that I planned to stay on rent kept giving me strange vibes. Though I loved the interior and loved the view from the balcony, something or the other kept coming as a hurdle. Maybe I was thinking too much but the last straw was the day before when I decided to finalise the house and call the owner in the evening (who I had a talk with in the morning). This time someone else picked up and informed the owner had just passed away and that it wasn’t the right time to discuss about it. I had goosebumps and wasn’t sure anymore if I wanted the house.
Artistic Thursday : Ray Of Hope🌠
There should always be that little flicker of light in our dark days. There should always be the scope of better times and a happy tomorrow. There should always be positive vibes around. The world is already sick and we cannot afford to be sick as well. We deserve all the happiness and I believe only when we are happy can we spread happiness. I have blood group AB+ and I keep saying Always Be positive is what defines me. I find happiness in all the small things. That’s the best way to live life. Isn’t it?
When Your Dream House Is Waiting To Be Discovered 🏡
Who is it?
And you think I Shall care?
Of course. Now that you’re out on your own. You cannot afford not to CARE.
Why Not To Be A Jack In Real Life 🤹
Semester exams have no relevance in your life unless you’re the first bencher. Which also means you’re the studious kind. Which also means you’re the teachers favorite student. Which also means that you’re the last one to ask doubts after the bell has rang. Which also means you get the maximum looks of hatred from your fellow mates for doing this. Basically you’re the worst example set for your fellow students who of course do not have the above traits. I was definitely not a first bencher but call it my fate I would find myself in the first seat just in front of the invigilator during exams. (Not by choice of course. Damn my cool name and my stupid Roll number). Have you been the victim of the same or were you a first bencher by default? I promise I will not judge you.
When It’s All about Monopoly And Travelling 🚅
I did complete my packing and I am travelling by train for a change this time (did not have a choice). I am sure flight couldn’t accommodate 10 luggages ( yes, you heard it right) just for me(not to forget the addition of money for each extra kg). I don’t want the airline to be damn rich just because of me. 💁
Though I haven’t travelled in a train for such a long time, I am really looking forward to it. I have the whole room to myself as well. That adds as the brownie point. Somehow I sleep really well in trains. The swing effect acts as a lullaby and relaxes me that I find myself sleeping peacefully. 🚅
Is it just me or even you find good sleep in train journeys too?
When It’s Time To Let Go🤝
There is too much work to done. Definitely doesn’t feel like a Friday. On top of it I have to say goodbye to my colleagues. Damn hard. I have such a great bond with them right now which I am definitely going to miss in my new place. They have been like a small family to me with whom you could gossip (you know about Bosses and all). This place has given me so much. Best friends to be precise. ♥ Anyways I am not going to be sad (At least not show it). I have been multitasking in office. I didn’t get time to apply nail polish and my fingers pleaded me so yes, while my report refreshed itself I applied a layer of nail polish. Cool right? \My toe nails feel left out though. Should I really go that low to apply the nail polish? Such tough decisions you have got to make in life. err well in office. What? You think I have no work? What made you think so. 😛
Artistic Thursday : Madly Insane🐅
Garfield is one of my favorite cartoon characters and add along Odie, the picture is complete. Won’t you agree? You need to have both of them in one frame to cherish their bond. While Garfield is lazy , Odie is hyper active. I cannot choose though, which character I am. I definitely have traits of Garfield (I can be really lazy at times) but I can be Odie too!!! Again only if I am really interested in something. 😉
The Balcony With A View🌲 |Short Story
She sat on the bus. The driver looked at her from the rear mirror and suddenly she felt smaller than a peanut. It looked like people were staring at her. She sat up straight. She analysed it was the right time for her hand sanitizer act. She quickly searched her bag for that and pressed the pump a little bit. Massaging her palms together she started looking outside the window. She felt a lot more confident now.
What’s Your Definition Of Being Stupid? 🙈
We have all been stupid in our life. I won’t believe if you say otherwise. In fact to make Stupid sound cool in my school we had defined STUPID as :
Who wants to be a stupid now?
