What keeps me going !

Hello Readers,

Hope you all are staying healthy and happy amidst all the Covid situation we all are in.

Don’t you feel low/frustrated/not so great some days ? Well, I DO !!!

We all go through different phases, feeling different emotions, in life which is sounding philosophical as I am writing it :D… but isn’t it true ? Ever since this COVID -19 has taken over the control of our lives to a great extent, feeling low/frustrated/sad/unmotivated has become more prominent.

If you’re coming across my Blog page for the first time and don’t know me well – Just wanted to tell you a very defining term for myself, that’s – A super hyperactive soul who has this strange phenomenon called OCD (google it if you aren’t sure what it is πŸ˜‰ ) . In layman’s terms I keep on trying new stuff and starve for perfection. With such kind of personality, there are rarely any days when I have nothing to do πŸ˜› , I keep exploring new hobbies, interests, things that makes me feel happy and content BUT despite of all this, I feel low – if not very often, at least few days a month for sure. I have a beautiful family, an adorable son whom I love to the moon and back, have a fulfilling job where people actually love me (I know it may sound weird too but one thing for sure is, I see people wanting me to be working with them despite of list of flaws I carry πŸ˜€ ) , BUT I still sometimes feel frustrated – I don’t know why but I do and I have no shame in accepting it, because that’s how I feel inside so why I fake being happy outside ?
Having this all said, despite of all those rough patches and tough times, I try to keep my self motivated and going.

2 very important details about it I wanted to write about this are “HOW” and “WHY”.
WHY is it important for anyone to keep reminding themselves that they are worthy ? Because if not yourself, then who else will ? Don’t let yourself feel bad about stuff for too long, it causes DEPRESSION- using this term because it’s heart breaking to see how some very talented people have succumbed to this and mind you the people who get it are not mediocre – they are all the blessed ones who achieve a lot more than average people, highly ambitious and one of their kind ones. Do not ever let yourself sink into it – whatsoever the reason be. Life is beautiful so live it to the fullest !!!

Coming back to the topic I am writing about today, HOW part of this – How one can keep going. Now I am going to write completely my personal experience (may differ for each individual) –
1. When I feel very low, first thing I do is STOP for a while, take an immediate break. Now the strange thing with people like me is we can’t sit idle so when i say I stop, I mean I do something else which is completely different from what i was doing, something that i love to do the most – like talking to someone who adores me and makes me feel good of myself or write or cook or anything – to divert my mind because that’s the key – it’s all about the game of deceiving your own mind at that moment of time. Don’t trust me? Try it once πŸ™‚ .
2. I think about everything that’s great about my life after all nobody has a “Perfect” life but definitely has blessings in some form or the other.
3. Know that social media is full of lies, because nobody shares their weak moments, there. The more you look at how everyone is having gala time of their life the worse you would feel of yourself while you are still in “not so happy” days/weeks/months. So BIG NO to social media, when you think you are already upset.
4. Think of how you made people feel great when they touched your life. I always believe when you are no longer around, nobody may remember your financial status, your position, your personality but all they remember is “How YOU made them feel”. Little bit of gyaan though, but one’s greatest achievement is when they make someone feel good while being around – The impact you leave on other person’s emotions, during short time you spend together, matters the most. I say short span of time as life keeps moving, and we are not with same set of people always but the impact we leave on their life is forever – so give it your best shot πŸ™‚
5. Last but not the least, think about people who adore you, and they adore you for what you are not what you do – so you gotta pull yourself up and get going.

It’s easy to give up but isn’t the life too short to give up unless life gives up on us πŸ˜€ .

If you’re feeling low, frustrated, down – Remember no matter how much ever long the night is, it does end with a bright sun πŸ™‚

Stay happy and healthy ! Sending you love !!!!

Am I too loud or too meak ?

Hello My Lovely Readers,

I am back again with you all, doing one of the things I feel is the best to express the deepest of my thoughts. Also, another reason why I prefer writing is, whatever I write here isn’t imposed but You who’s reading this post right now , actually feels, that this post is worth your time in this fast paced journey of life and so I am BLESSED to have you as my reader πŸ™‚

Back to the topic want to write about or rather discuss. Are you also the one who is confused if you are too loud or too meak ? Do you want to know what my take on it is? If you want to know what’s my ideology on keeping the balance, please keep reading .

So I used to be an introvert child who won’t share easily what’s going on inside so easily but always wanted to speak about things which weren’t right or rather say Unfair to one – be it taking side of my friends in front of teachers(for whom I was a favorite but ended up being scolded by them for doing it πŸ˜€ ) or my younger sibling in front of my parents.
Never had a big group of friends because for me a friend is much more than with whom we just hang around. I still remember this friend of mine (she still is) going against her own sister to favor me and even got beating from teacher in school for me πŸ™‚ – This for me is what a real friendship is, where I was standing in every thick and thin of hers and she did the same too.

Gradually I realized, how important aspect of one’s personality it is to be vocal – about the things which are right, fair and justified and so I came out of that shell I had around me of being an introvert. I started to react, speak it out louder than before and telling when it’s not fair and retrospect myself too.
But when you start to speak up in strong voice specially if you’re a woman you invite a lot of raised eyebrows and people start to tag you as too blunt, aggressive, egoistic (may be) . It’s then when the question comes “AM I TOO LOUD OT TOO MEAK” ? You want to know my approach to this, keep going on.

So the answer is- The perfect balance of being not too loud or too meak is if you do the following –

1. Raise your voice against injustice, bias, and wrong deeds no matter who is at stake.
2. Have a justifiable stand of your own in public – be it your family, friends, office, unknowns
3. Put forth your point in the most logical way possible and with the concrete reasoning as why you feel so without being judgmental , critic without a cause, about others.
4. Don’t indulge in fights/bitching/blame-games just to satisfy your ego in front of others however inside you know you’re wrong. This doesn’t make you strong if you just prove your point to the other person despite of knowing you’re wrong.
5. Use your words wisely for the betterment of others, appreciating people and not for bullying, pulling someone down, shaming, calling names – big NO NO.

Being a woman, I know how important it is to be vocal yet reasonable but unfortunately I don’t see many women doing it around me for various reasons and when I find such women I am naturally attracted to their personality and that’s the reason in all my social accounts , the women I follow, all of them have a spunk in them, they are all strong ones, vocal ones , women who have their stand and have concrete reasons to back it. I am more oriented towards women in these last statements as I always feel it’s our women who need to adapt these things because men are already vocal and dominant(just for fun) πŸ˜€

To sum it up, I would say Being Balanced is when you don’t fear of talking about your stand in public without pulling others down and can back your statements by valid pointers which any sensible and unbiased person would get. On the same time, you aren’t someone who’s fighting for everything without reasons – that’s no feminism.

What is your version of “Being balanced ” ? Please tell me in comments πŸ™‚

Hope you enjoyed reading it. if you haven’t followed my social handles yet(Instagram, YouTube, Facebook), please do that as you get some fun content there.

I am TOUGH, but is that enough ????

Hey Readers,

Hope you guys are doing good and staying healthy.

Do you people ever feel very low and feel like giving up? Well, that’s something that happens when you have been strong for very long, but guess what you need to tell yourself at that very moment ? – “Just hang in there a little more, you are STRONG” !!!!

But is that enough???? Keep reading to know !!!

It won’t be wrong to say, that it’s my mental state as on today while I am writing it, when it has been more than a month and I haven’t stepped out because of Corona Virus outbreak just like you all. I have been doing all household chores (most of them on my own) , handling critical official meetings, managing my 3 years old while taking up the calls – Imagine bathing your kid and attending an official call simultaneously , trying to grow my new venture (my new YouTube channel) and putting so much efforts recording the videos, posting them etc. I don’t have a very solid support system – I stay very far from my parents and it’s been 2 years I met them.

Because of this overwhelming emotional, mental and physical pressure, many a times I felt like losing my cool but I kept pushing myself hard – on cost of my heath and peace, every single day I apply some muscle relieving gel on my back and think I wont work this hard again but next morning I am again pushing myself – WHY ? Because I am that kind of person who doesn’t want her loved ones to work harder and keeps on slogging herself. Result of which is – this volcano eruption that happens within you and you feel like collapsing.

I have realized and so wanted to pen it down for all you working girls/wives/mothers –

1. No matter what don’t work too hard constantly for long or try to keep all your pain inside.
2. Give yourself a break because nobody else gives a damn when you get hurt, it’s your body that pains nobody else feels it.
3. Speak to your favorite people and calm yourself down
4. Don’t hate anyone but keep assholes away (sorry for my language) but we all know there are some in our lives.
5. Be selfish at times – The longer you say selfless and keep slogging the more people exploit you. SO the moment you feel, your body and mind needs rest – do give it . Your life is precious.
6. Be gentle yet STRONG, Be nice but don’t be gullible , Care for others but for your own self too.
7. Don’t push yourself too hard for too long and wait for the world to end before you react – you are a human being too.
8. STOP working day in and out on cost of your health ! Nothing in the world can give your health and time back once lost.

Honestly speaking, I was feeling very low when I began to write this post but now for some reason I am better, perhaps that’s the power of expressing – DO express your feelings, in whichever way you want to.

I really pray and hope you all pass through this quarantine season well and the world becomes a better place again but until then, please do take care of yourself – remember you are irreplaceable for the ones who love you.

Loads of love to you all and thanks for your patience and reading it all the way till end πŸ™‚

Take Care

Hey my Loves,

How you guys have been ? I am writing after a longgggggg time , did you miss me? I did miss you all πŸ˜‰

I hope you guys are healthy and keeping safe from this Corona Virus outbreak.

It’s been almost a month since I stepped out of my house but not even a day I felt like jailed. Guess why ????
Because I do what I love to at home and trying to make most out of these Quarantine days. I would suggest this to all of you too. You can do hell lot of stuff while being at home – spending some quality time with your near and dear ones is my favorite. Our work and routine otherwise keeps us so busy that we forget our hobbies, don’t spend time with our kids and everything that’s more important than surfing malls.

jumping back to the main topic of the post – Genda Phool look of our very own Jacqueline Fernandez. Have you already watched this song from Badshah featuring Jacqueline ? If you haven’t please do it -its’ a peppy number and the highlight of it is Jacqueline who’s looking awestruck gorgeous in Bong attire and makeup. And since her makeup and attire is so lovely and my love for this look has been there,since forever (I bought some bengali style sarees for the same reason πŸ˜€ ) I created this look WITHOUT using foundation on my Youtube Channel. I will share some pics from my look here, but don’t forget to check out my video. The link for the video is here

Proud to be a woman – International Women’s Day !

Hello My Lovely Readers,

Hope you all are doing awesome πŸ™‚

Today is International Women’s Day and so I wanted to write this- not so big post however I do believe that every day is a Women’s Day but still since we celebrate this day as Women’s day – few words from me.

Firstly, I feel blessed and grateful of almighty to send me on this earth as a woman. Men undoubtedly are equally important part of our society but what and how much women do throughout their life is incredible.

God Himself has blessed women to be able to create a life within themselves.In the face of daughters, sisters, wives, mums, all they do is live for others.

Woman is the name of delicacy, power, beauty, wisdom, love, endurance, light of life and much more than this, which I am falling short of words to explain.

Woman is that light without whom, your home becomes just a lifeless house.

Woman is the one who fills void in so many lives around her, all at once and that void appears the moment she’s away.

You know what the definition of a perfect woman for me is – She is someone who’s kind at heart, beautiful inside out, strong, determined as rock, confident and pretty, ocean of selfless love and care. She is the one, with whom the life becomes a garden. She has the ability to carry the world on her shoulders. She can handle her house, kids and work with equal grace. She raises other women and help them grow. She is the one who won’t talk shit on back of others and takes a stand when needed. She has a strong voice of her own which she isn’t afraid to raise. She is the one who’s delicate, pretty and nice yet knows how to defeat the demons.

The women in your life deserve all the love, respect, care and support of the world for what they are !

If you are a man reading this, don’t forget to take care of that gift of God to you – the woman of your life and if you are a woman, loads of love and power to you. A woman who raises other women is what I call a woman of worth.

Lastly, a big shout out to all the women of my life – You ROCK ! Thanks for being there. Life would have not been the same without you 😘

Happy Women’s Day to all of us πŸ™‚

Lastly I want to say to God “Agle Janam Mohe BITIYA hi kijo” ( I want to be born as a daughter always) πŸ˜‡

Stay happy, stay beautiful and shine like a star that you are !!!

Hello Darlings,

We all love make-up.. don’t we?

So for the love of make-up, let’s move to today’s post which is about Nykaa’s new launch – Nyka So CrΓ¨me lipstick range. They have launched 18 shades in this range but I have picked just one shade to begin with this time ( because I don’t get PR boxes from them 😜 )

The shade that I have picked up this time is ‘It’s A Date‘.

Talking about the shade it’s a very beautiful shade of plum with some pink undertone and also gives hint of little red. So all in all the shade is quite pretty.

Moving on to the pigmentation and finish of the product, as the name suggests, the finish is creamy and very soothing on lips. So you don’t need to apply a lip balm underneath. Pigmentation too is quite good and at least for this shade, one application gives you proper coverage.

These lipsticks are enriched with almond oil, jojoba oil, and vitamin E for intense hydration to your lips.

Pros of the lipstick
Very much pocket friendly
Easily glide and super smooth.
Creamy texture and high pigmentation.
Suits all skin tones
Superbly hydrating
Cruelty free

Cons
Can’t think of any except a little bleeding or transferring – which is fine as with any other non liquid lipstick.

Price
These lipsticks are priced at INR 299/- each for 4.2 gms of product.

Can be bought from Nykaa -> this is a URL, you can simply click and get redirected to Nykaa’s page to buy.Hope you liked the post, please do drop a comment.

Maybelline New York Sensational Liquid Matte Lipstick – Review and Swatches

Hello Pretty Girls,

It’s been QUITE LONG since I have posted a blog as I wasn’t keeping well and it took longer than usual to get over the viral infection but I am recovering now and so back to what I like doing and missed hell lot all this while.
I have clicked all the pics related to this post during my “not-so-well” days of the year, so excuse me if these don’t look that great, but I hope you’ll like the blog and pics equally.

I recently came across these range of liquid lipsticks from Maybelline called as – ‘Maybelline New York Sensational Liquid Matte Lipstick’. These lipsticks are priced at quite reasonable price @ INR 349/- for 7 ml of product.

I have picked up two shades from this range – “Easy Berry” and “Sensationally Me” – These are the names of shades πŸ˜›

Talking about the lipstick quality, it’s matte in finish and quite pigmented. Since these are liquid lipsticks I expected them not to bleed and stay for good amount of time, however these lipsticks do bleed and transfers if you touch your lips even after couple of minutes, the lipstick is dried. Staying power is manageable but they can’t survive meals.

Let’s have a look at the swatches of two shades I picked up –
1. Easy Berry – This is a pretty barbie pink color. This is quite girly to wear and instantly brightens up your face. It’ll suit medium to fair skin toned girls. It’s lovely – would recommend!

undefined

2. Sensationally Me – This is dark brick red/brown color shade with nude undertone. I won’t call it nude or red/brown of shade, it essentially a mix of all three. It’s a perfect shade to be worn to office !

undefinedundefined

Verdict – For this price, a brand like Maybelline is definitely worth trying. The quality is not as great as other matte liquid lipsticks from Maybelline but it can be your budget friendly daily use lipstick. I liked the easy berry shade more out of the two I used as it gives a glow to my face even when I am not at best of my health πŸ™‚

You can buy the shades from these URLs (NYKAA online)
Easy Berry
Sensationally Me

That’s it about this particular review. Please tell me how do you feel about these lipsticks if you tried any.
Also, please don’t forget to follow my blog if you haven’t already. You can follow me on Instagram if you want to, I usually post images related to my blogs there first πŸ™‚

Keep showering your love and support to the blog, love you all !

Buhbyee for now
