Sleeping Alone

January 21, 2010

When you lie on your soft sheets and poufy pillows you want to forget everything you have endured during your mercurial day. A moment when you are true to yourself and vulnerable to the thoughts meandering in your head. Mainly, analyzing past actions or envisioning future dreams. A day in itself is not easy with a million insecurities, moments of uncertainties, equal number of hesitations paired with euphoric moments.

At the end of it all, you want a calm, serene, loving place to be where you can forego your experiences and thoughts for a few minutes and have someone to hold. Someone, who protects you through your vulnerable time, gives you security of being loved, and takes care of you before you bid adieu to the world for the night. Sleeping alone then somehow seems to be the worst curse, a challenging one that too. At the end of daybreak then, lying by yourself, can be lonely and daunting. Your favorable actions have to be your savior and your loved ones your surrender. To guide you to your dreams when your (k)night in shining armour is away..

Importance of style

January 21, 2010

STYLE categorized by some as a narcissist obsession or rather a futile expensive investment. Well, nothing could be more on the contrary. Beauty maybe in the eye of the beholder, but feeling beautiful about you is a pleasure that is simply priceless. Style gives you a zing to carry out your mundane monotonous activities with the spark.  A silk blouse or a low plunging dress makes you feel like a runway model even while doing the dishes. Strutting around feeling good about yourself, not only shows in your actions but your infectious vibe makes you more attractive to the world outside. Your inner beauty radiates outward illuminating the moods of your colleagues and passerby’s.

All this just by a well-fitted pair of jeans or a sky-high six-inch pair of stilettos! Whatever you fancy, open that closet and create yourself a version that you not only want to wear but that will transform you into the protagonist of your dreams.

Some are afraid that it doesn’t make sense shelling out $200 on a dress. Especially, when you wear it on a night out and then store it in the dark hole of your closet for the next big occasion. But it is worth it, if it transcends you to a being that surpasses your current morale.

Some don’t understand the way a Herve Leger $1000 dress caresses your curves any different than a $60 Bebe knock-off, or an Armani jacket makes you feel like a 1980’s power figure and a Zara copy doesn’t. To them weirdly though, pigs in a blanket seems more refined and delicious than a $1 hotdog. Made from the same ingredients, taste similar and fulfill the same purpose of being satisfying to the palate. At the end of the day, what’s the difference between the sausage and the jacket?

A lipstick is said to be recession proof, ever wonder why. A simple 4-inch tube of paint can uplift your mood, transform your face and make you feel like a million bucks.  So why not indulge yourself, if something so miniscule can take out the Audrey Hepburn in you, smudge on….

Don’t be afraid to go overboard, do what feels right at the moment what gets you through a boring day feeling like Carrie walking down Fifth Avenue. Style doesn’t have to be expensive or a serious investment. It can be a vest from a flea market to a Birkin bag. Anything that makes your heart sink when you see it and make your heart leap when you wear it.
