My May Shopping List

When May started, I challenged myself to stick to a budget this month. If you’ve been following me for a bit, you might know that I’ve started my own small business which means that I’m practically living off of my savings (and crashing at my parent’s home). I’m also trying to be more sustainable and…

Old Shoes Wear Best – Spring Cleaning

I spent the weekend doing what I called “spring cleaning” though we’re deep into summer here in New Delhi. It just felt like what a “main character” from a movie would do. I finally got to sorting through some of the shoes that I wear regularly. Weirdly, I get sentimentally attached to some clothes and…

My First Love

Disclaimer: This is a very random post and not sponsored. 😛 The year was 2011. My family and I were travelling through Egypt. Our tour stopped at a local bazaar for shopping. As we scrutinized the shops wondering where we should go with all the vendors trying to catch our attention, we heard the words…

May 2022 Life Update: Trying Out New Hobbies & Skills

After spending April in purgatory, I decided to get my life going again and pick up some new hobbies and skills this month. My way of working around my anxious phases has been to just be lazy and watch re-runs of favourite shows. But this time I want to try keeping myself extremely busy and…

Dating Life: What I Want In A Man?

While growing up I had this long checklist of what my ‘prince charming’ will be like – tall, dark, dimples, rich, funny, etc. But over the past 3-4 years, the list has gotten a lot shorter and way more practical. The men I’ve dated have helped me identify the qualities I’d appreciate in the person…

A Love Letter To My Body

Dear Body, I am sorry that it has taken me this long to write this letter to you. I know you’ve been waiting a long while – eagerly at first, patiently after, and later with waning hope. It has been a bumpy journey for us. I wish it was a classic love story – girl…

The Rise of Casual Dating

When I was a teenager all I wanted to do was watch romantic films, read romantic novels, and dream about that knight in shining armor. I have become more practical in my quest for love with my dating experiences (read as: heartbreaks) but I still hope to find someone to be in a long-term relationship…

How To Deal With Criticism?

Another week is here and as much as I want to be motivated I am still reeling from how short that weekend was. This post is inspired by something I read recently in fellow blogger Ella’s post that got me thinking. She shared the following quote in her post – “The trouble with most of us is that we…

Things I Don’t Write About On My Blog

In the last few months, I’ve been trying to be more open in my posts, trying to share parts of my life that I am not always comfortable talking about. While some bloggers choose to show the glossy parts of their life, I want my blog to be messy – a place where other people…

How Anxiety Affects My Day To Day Life!

I’ve talked about my crippling anxiety in a lot of previous posts. From being in control till 2020 to taking an ugly oppressive form in the post COVID era – me and my anxiety have come a long way. While I’ve mentioned the issues I have faced because of my anxiety, I have often realized…
