A female goes through so much in her life! Puberty, hormonal changes, PMS, Menstruation…tackling life with all this not easy. One has to manage everything from education to career to marriage to settling to a new home. However, something that changes a women’s life completely is birth of a child. Yes, that’s the most blissful thing for a women, however it’s not a cakewalk.
Motherhood is no less than a blessing for a lady. My life completely changed after giving birth to Kiara. It is a bliss yet it comes with great responsibilities. Being a client servicing professional with an Advertising agency is a tedious task for a young woman who has recently become a mom. Late evening meetings, lengthy presentations, and sharp skills to make creative team understand client’s brief requires lots of patience and positive temperament. I really struggle hard with time investment for my little angel’s upbringing. It is tough to maintain a right balance between career and motherhood but what I am doing today is for my child’s better upbringing. Just after giving birth to Kiara, I was surrounded by a lot of curiosity raised by my relatives and friends that how am I going to cope-up with my career and the journey of motherhood. To bargain between the two was very difficult, one being the dream with which I have been raised up all my life and the other being my daughter, the most important part of my life. But I was very certain that I am not going to compromise in any circumstance whatsoever when comes to my child’s bright future and would like to give her the best amenities and facilities from her initial upbringing stage itself.
A friend of mine got married recently and it was time to build a new house in a city where they had been living since long. However, their parents stayed in a different city and the new couple had to find a house for themselves in Delhi where both of them were working. They looked at a variety of options in the Delhi as well as NCR but they realised that the rentals were really high. Paying a heavy rent every month was not what they would ideally want to do but the solution they came up with was even better. They thought of an investment, not in shares or bonds but in their own house. Isn’t that a great idea? Instead of a rent, they chose to pay an EMI for their home loan.
A woman with good shoes is never ugly – Coco Chanel

Freelancing has its pros and cons. Infact, a research says that 38% like the profession on account of being one’s own boss & income growth. While I have the freedom to work on my own terms, which I love, what I don’t like about freelancing is the irregular income. I hate it when payments take as long as 6 months while delivery of the work is always ASAP. When work is done as per deadline, why do we have to wait for payments!
We all have those flowy silhouettes which add the glam quotient to our outfit while attending a party or an event but when I choose an outfit I make sure it’s fuss free so that I can be at calm and enjoy the evening. One such outfit which I wore for #AIFWSS18 was this alluring outfit consisting of an off-shoulder crop top paired with a graceful long skirt from Timeless Tapestry by Prishaa. I have honestly never worn a crop top before and neither did I ever think it will look good on me but somehow seeing the beautiful outfit, I could not resist myself and Priyanka Sharma, the founder of the brand ensured that it will look good on me. So, I excitedly waited for a few days for my customized dress to arrive!

We went for a day tour to Pattaya in Thailand while we were staying at Bangkok as we just wanted to see limited attractions. If you missed reading our travelogue to Bangkok, you can read it here. We were going to Phuket after Bangkok so Coral Island wasn’t what attracted us! Read on to know what attracted us!
With the wedding season around the corner, we wish to be different, trendy, modern and stylish. The series of pre-wedding functions leading to the D Day followed by the reception, we want to look different and perfect with each passing and hectic day, each minute, each second. Not only do we crave for compliments while exchanging glances, the likes and comments of the celebratory moments of life on social media is also what each of us want secretly. If this is what you relate to as well (wondering how I have read your mind ;)), then you have to make sure that you have everything perfect, right from the outfit to the accessories making sure no look and flavour is repeated on any part of the function. I love to experiment not only with my outfits but accessories too. Accessories now not only mean earrings or neckpiece but everything including your clutch and your footwear.
‘’When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.’’ – Sophia Loren
How true are these words by Sophia Loren! Pregnancy is a special phase that a woman goes through. This is also a challenging time of her life as she has to be extra careful about everything she does – right from her diet to exercise to sleeping position and the emotional turmoil inside her. No matter how tough it may seem and feel like, it is also extremely rewarding.
