September 2014 in Review

Should I tell you a little secret? None of the outfits were from this month. All of them were worn in August. I had such a longgg back-log of outfits that I didn't even bother taking many pictures for the blog this month. But now since summer is over and I would need more layers to stay warm, you can expect many fall-transitional outfits with jackets and blazers in the coming weeks. 
However, getting back to September; is was a very busy but productive month for me personally. On the blog though it was an average traffic. Nothing to write home about. Even though I took the first week off from blogging, the remaining three weeks I blogged non-stop. Y'all seemed to liked this post the most and this one a close second. Although, this was my favorite. 
There wasn't any new features to report for this month, except I have been sharing travel pictures with you on Sundays and they seem to be well received. Let me know if there are any specific posts you would like to see in the coming months.
Watch out for a new Giveaway by eShakti tomorrow and I will see you soon with some more outfit posts and random musings. 
Thank you for your readership and support throughout! Have a good October y'all!

While the move has had its positives, the only tad-bit challenging part has been the change in working hours. We often don't get to take the outfit posts from special events and such. A lot of times I have had to resort to Insta-Outfits, so unless we are connected on Instagram you wouldn't get to see those outfits. 
This was going to be one of those outfits, but then the professional photographers (credits below) at the venue came to the rescue.

Ocean City, MD

One of the positives of living in the North East has been the accessibility to so many weekend getaway spots. You can make a quick drive to the city, and you can also make a short trip to a harbor. Or beach! 
Ocean City in Maryland is a popular domestic tourist destination. I will let the pictures speak for themselves.

Three Ways To Style A High Waist Skirt

Three Ways To Style A High Waist Skirt, Tanvii.com
1 / 2 / 3
When I bought this skirt I was wary of it a little, but have come to love it over time. It is great for pear-shaped people. Helps you accentuate your waist and hide the bum ;) 
Which one is your favorite look of the three? I can already guess though (I think!)!

I Won't Allow

“Everyone who passed through my life has always left something of theirs in me. The memory of a smile, a gesture, a laugh, a word, a kiss. If they hadn’t left anything, it would be because they didn’t exist. Even those who disrespected or hurt me left something in my heart. If anything, they reminded me of what I won’t allow to exist in my life anymore.” 
- José Micard Teixeira
When someone else has already said what you wanted to say, and in even better words then why try to re-state it, right? Just quote him! :)

Keep That Phone Away

I am so glad someone finally said it. As much as I love Social Media and love being connected, I hate it when you are having a conversation with someone and he/she is not even looking at you. This is however in a social scenario, I cannot even imagine this behavior in professional world and business meetings. Below is an excerpt from an article which I think everyone should read. 
Why do so many people—especially successful people—find smartphone use in meetings to be inappropriate? When you take out your phone it shows a:
  • Lack of respect. You consider the information on your phone to be more important than the conversation at hand, and you view people outside of the meeting to be more important than those sitting right in front of you.
  • Lack of attention. You are unable to stay focused on one thing at a time.
  • Lack of listening. You aren’t practicing active listening, so no one around you feels heard.
  • Lack of power. You are like a modern-day Pavlovian dog who responds to the whims of others through the buzz of your phone.
  • Lack of self-awareness: You don't understand how ridiculous your behavior looks to other people.
  • Lack of social awareness: You don't understand how your behavior affects those around you.

Last time, this year

... so didn't write this post till very late at night (again!) ... and now I am running short of time (again!) My husband suggest, I tell y'all that I have nothing to say (again!) and that he is waiting for me to watch television together. Message delivered! Hope y'all had a good weekend too. 
Safe to say I am wearing these dresses, together or by themselves, 
for the last time this year.

Niagara Falls, NY

One of the places I revisited this last summer was Niagara Falls. Boy! What a sight it is. Pure Majestic. I couldn't get enough of the water, the rainbows or the scenery around. I am already eager to visit again. It is totally worth all the hype around it over the decades.

Three Ways To Style A Necklace

This necklace was a gift. And to be honest, when I had received it I didn't think I would ever wear it. It just didn't seem my style. Clearly, I was wrong. I have styled it over and and over again since then. Apparently when you don't know what necklace to wear, this one works just fine! Do you have such pieces of jewelry which didn't seem to click at first instance?
