Abstract Tattoos

 

Abstract art is the in-thing currently ‘coz not everything in life has meaning. This one pays tribute to the fact that meaningless pieces also have their own charm. However, don’t forget to find an artist who excels in fusion artwork.

Mandala Tattoos

 

These designs are on every aspirant’s wish-list! The art work, which primarily consists of dots, is an ode to the spiritual connection of a human being. Though this one needs precision, it looks fabulous when perfected.

Watercolour Tattoos

 

When life turns too black-and-white, go for a dash of colour in your tattoo design. What makes watercolour a bestseller is that it can be subtly incorporated with the design that you already have in mind. Win-win?

Mythological Tattoos

 

While earlier the idea of getting Indian Gods and Goddesses inked was looked down upon, nowadays enchanting portraits of Lord Shiva, Goddess Kali, and Goddess Durga have become favourites. Powerful and captivating!

3D Tattoos

3D designs add the realistic appeal to a tattoo. Though the effect can be added to almost any existing design, some 3D pieces just take the show away. However, not all artists are skilled in this so ensure you’re at the right studio.

My love for high heels and how I waste my money 20

Being the crazy shopaholic I am, I spend 70% of my money in buying things I already have, or I will never need. You see that cute top which is slightly tight so you leave it with a heavy heart? No, I buy it. Why? because there is a chance I might get slim one day and I will wear that top then. Yes, I can be that crazy when I shop.  No, its not a good habit. Being confident is one thing and believing in the impossible in another. My love for shoe, is crazy on another level. I want every type, every color. flip flops, sandals, office shoes, heels, blocks, wedges, canvas, I have everything and I still crave for more.

Let’s talk about high heels, they are painful. Period. You cannot avoid that pain. I have a six inch Steve Madden heels and they cost me a fortune. And I thought, since they are Madden heels and so costly, they probably won’t hurt that much. 50m is the distance I walked before they started killing me.

I was cleaning my closet today and  saw them, in one corner, packed in a beautiful box and I wondered  why, as women, do we love heels so much even though they kill our feet, they are not healthy, they have major side effects, but still we cant stop ourselves from wearing them, and buying them first (not to forget that).

Well the answer presented itself when I tried those 6 inches again.
Because with a simple pair we are transformed. We’re not just women. Suddenly we’re bad*** b*tches with a purpose. We’re strong. We’re classy. We’re sophisticated. And we kick butt.

Here are a few reasons, why I am obsessed with them

  • You look taller:
    Those extra five-six inches and you see the world in a different way, altogether.
  • Immediate confidence boost:
    Maybe it has some psychology associated with it, but a good pair of heels, and you have a major confidence boost. Wearing heels give you a sense of power, and with power comes confidence.Wearing heels makes a woman feel in charge because height is the antithesis of power.
  • A pair for every occasion
    There are so many of them. You have the occasion, a dress and you have a pair, just right for the job.
  • They can make any outfit look classier
    You look 50% more attractive by wearing heels than flat, I personally feel that the extra added confidence helps a woman wearing heels.
  • It gives you a posture
    Yes, they do. Hips, a little more push, makes your legs look slimmer and your waist, a fine heaven.

There is always a pair of heels in my myntra bag, and I just need one push and off it goes, another 2500 rupees. But, I totally encourage you to buy that one pair you have been craving. kyunki bhai apni toh ek hi philosophy hai, one life so make it large. 😛

Things that you DON’T need in your closet! 5

Today’s post is about closet organization, telling you the about things that you DON’T need in your closet! These tips will help you organize your clothes into things that you actually need. Closet de-cluttering and organization can do so much for your mindset.

                                          De-clutter your closet, de-clutter your life! 

Things that don’t fit you. Are you holding onto things that don’t fit you anymore? And you’re hoping maybe some point in life you may lose some weight and you could fit into them. Ha ha…believe me, you never gonna wear them coz once you lose weight, you will definitely buy the new ones. 😉

Things you haven’t worn for years. If you haven’t even thought about wearing it or even considered it, it’s really a time to think if you really, really need it. Clearly, they aren’t that important. If you haven’t worn them for years or you haven’t even taken the tag off them, it’s a great idea to give to people who would like to wear them and get organized.

Things that are out of style. If you have pieces in your closet that are out of vogue, it’s time to toss them. People will say that trends keep coming back but do you really want to be keeping all those extra baggage in your closet?
Things that are damaged or stained. It’s time to get rid of the things that are damaged, stained or have holes in them, you will never wear them again. So, it’s best to say bye to them now.

Pieces that are painful. If you have clothing items that cause blisters or you just don’t feel comfortable wearing them otherwise, you probably shouldn’t be keeping them. So, pieces that put you in pain physically, why should you keep them?

Things with bad memories. You should definitely be getting rid of pieces that are attached to bad memory. Like if you have pieces that your ex-bf gave you, these are the items you should not be keeping because who wants to get reminded of negative memories? Just throw them away coz everytime you see them in your closet they gonna pull you back for sure.
Things you think you might wear but never do. If you’re keeping things for specific occasions but you know you will never wear them again. Get rid of them right away. After all, who wants to keep useless things?

Alright, guys! That wraps up my today’s post. I really hope they help you de-clutter and organize your closet better.
