10 Random Things on My Mind


1. You know, emotional stability is great for everyday life but it sucks for writing. Because when nothing is bothering me, or getting on my nerves, I have nothing to write about.

2. It has been four days since I have had zero sugar, and while I am staying strong, it is starting to dawn upon me that life without sugar is going to be hard but this time I am more committed than ever before.

3. It dawned on me this weekend that I have not shopped (for clothes, shoes, bags) since Dec. 17th 2017 (unintentionally) and now I want to see how long I can go. Last time, I did an intentional shopping ban was back in 2013.

4. I have kind-of abandoned my obsession with Instagram this year. I am just swinging it as and when I like or when a campaign requires it. It feels rather quite liberating.

5. I read 11 books in the January 2018. Crazy right? I have a goal of reading 52 books this year. If you are on GoodReads you can checkout my list.

6. Did you guys watch This Is Us last night? All the feels, man. All the feels. Give Mandy Moore an award already.

7. Can I tell you a little secret? I have not taken any outfit pictures since early December 2017. A) I have had so much of backlog of content. B) I have been too lazy to step out in this cold.

8. I have not been completely useless though - Flo (a fellow blogger) and I have launched a Podcast on Hindi Movies called - Movie Wala Podcast. The first episode went live last week. Give it a listen? 

9. After months of procrastination I finally posted a new YouTube video and moving forward I plan to be pretty regular. Wish me luck!

10. If you live in the DMV area, mark your calendars for Feb. 17th - I will be hosting an event with Cera Wax Beauty 4-7pm - More details here.


Now on to the outfit - I wore this dress back in summer time here, and below is how I wore it in winter. The trick is up layer it up!

  5. I loved reading your honesty throughout this post! Especially about Instagram. I know a lot of people (including myself) spend far too much time on it. It is so much more liberating to just let things be.

  8. Thanks for the life update. I love all these photos. Pretty outfit, too. I did not watch This Is Us last night. I'm way behind.

    Back when I was younger, I used to write songs. I found that I could write a song a week in middle and early high school. Then one year in high school, I just lost all songwriting inspiration. And I realized that it was easier to write songs when I was feeling sad or uncomfortable. When I started to feel more OK with myself, I found that I had less and less to write about. C'est la vie.

  13. Aggravation IS the best fuel for writing inspiration. Try channeling your angst at missing sugar into a well-crafted rant. ;-)

  14. UM these pics are amazing and I cannot believe how many books you have read ALREADY! Goals!!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Good luck on maintaining your YouTube channel! Congrats on your new podcast! I don’t know if I’m more impressed with your backlog of content or that you’ve read 11 books in ONE month (probably the latter)!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Love that picture of you with the doughnut pretzel thing Tanvi :D and it's good to take a break from the whole SM rush. I haven't been on IG for such a long time and I honestly don't miss it at all. I did a bit in the beginning though ;-) Good luck with your podcasts, I'm sure they're going to great success and happy reading

    ReplyDelete

  19. I hope things are going well with your sugar free diet! I really like your outfit, it looks lovely against that stunning background.

  20. I love the way you have layered this dress! It's so cute! Also - I'm trying to set a goal for books to read this year but I'm not set on a number yet lol. I'm working on it though. congrats on all your accomplishments! Not eating sugar even for a few days is a big deal!

  21. You are looking gorgeous in this outfit with other trendy accessories. And I do say that you are fit and slim even without having sugar free diet.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Well done on dropping the sugar, its hard to start with but will make you feel so much better. 11 books through January is incredible, its taken me a month and a half to read just one! You are going to smash that goal! Also awesome that you've such a backlog of content, its always good to be so organised in case things pop up and you don't have time to make new content. Looking fabulous as always!

  23. Instagram has lost a lot of it's luster since Facebook took over and keeps changing things. I don't see my friends posts, anymore - and I don't like that the feed isn't in time order. It's in the order IG wants to present it and it makes no sense. I like the idea of a shopping ban. I'm not a big shopper anyway - but it does remind me - I need to make a grocery list. I do gotta eat!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I do really like your style and how you pair your dress into your dress. and I hope things are going well with your sugar free diet!

    ReplyDelete
  25. What a cute dress, I love the versatility and the boots you wore with it!! I'm shocked that you have read ELEVEN books already...good for you!!

  26. Your pictures are always so gorgeous and these are no exception! Obsessed!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love your outfit! And I can relate to your first point so much! When I am angry or sad, I sit down to write and the words just flow. When I am okayish, it just isn't that easy anymore :P

  36. I love your outfit! I've seen it on Instagram and thought that it was so right up my alley! I think you are very brave, I couldn't live without sugar :(
    I usually go on a buy ban every lent period (40 days before Easter) and last time I did it I kept not buying for very long time!
