Hey my lovely readers. What’s up? Well, I know that at the end of every month I post my monthly favourites but this time, I thought of breaking the pattern and posting something different.
Everyone, it’s officially Halloween. But how do we celebrate it when our normal life is already so scary? The lockdown has certainly put limits on the Halloween activities we love — trick-or-treating, costume parties and giant haunted houses — but we can still celebrate in socially distant, safe ways by having a Halloween movie night in. So, grab the popcorn, a pumpkin spice latte, and snuggle up because I bring you the top movies that you can watch on a spooky night in.
A Quiet Place
That’s it. Have a Happy Halloween and enjoy your movie night in.
“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.”
The best thing about music is that it is spirited, soulful and therapeutic. Yes, be it any feeling or frame of mind, you have song for it. Let’s face it, sad times call for sad playlists. Parties call for an upbeat playlist.
Not feeling great? Hear your fav number and turn that feeling around. Feeling low? Switch on the gadget and rise above the way you’re feeling. Excited about something? Tune in to that special song and sink into the rhythm. Music is like magic; it changes you from within. For me, music is happiness, music is therapy, music is life. I can immerse myself in my selective and preferred numbers for hours at stretch. Most of the time, I listen to music depending on my mood.
Having said that, I have managed to create a playlist based on different moods specially for you. Take a dive right in when you’re in that mood and add life to your moments.

Song: “The Heart Wants What It Wants” — Selena Gomez
This question has been popped to me by hundreds of people. Yes, I am a Left-Handed Person. I recently read somewhere that every 10th person in this world is left-handed. Indeed, I’ve also read that left handers are the most intelligent, imaginative and inclined towards art and creativity. Also, that some of the world’s most famous people are left handers!! Having said that, let me share my personal experience of being a left hander.
Being a left-hander in this right-handed world is not so difficult but to survive, you need to adapt and pull out some new techniques from your left-handed bag of tricks. When I was in school, my bench partner would often be a right hander, and that would lead to frequent fights as our hands always clashed while writing.
Then much later when I was in high school, we used to have that wrap-around desk. These desks are perhaps still made by keeping the right-handed person in mind, so writing on the desk demanded a lot of physical flexibility. And me being a left hander, it was indeed difficult for me to use it.
However, growing up like most lefties, I managed to learn to use most of the day-to-day tools such as laptop mouse, scissors, hairbrush, etc.
So, on the occasion of International Left Handers Day, I bring you some interesting facts about left-handers and also list a few famous people who are ‘lefties’.
Left handers are more likely to pursue creative careers.
They are less able to roll their tongue.
They are more competitive.
You may find that lefties blush a lot.
Lefties have a difficult time processing their emotions.
Some Famous Left-Handers:
Sarah Jessica Parker
So now you know where my left-handedness will take me in life!! 😝😜🥰😃
Lipstick is every girl’s best friend – especially when we’re posing and pouting for the perfect selfie! No matter where we are going or what we are wearing or whatever the occasion is, wearing a lipstick never goes wrong. Nevertheless, there are some rules that one must keep in mind before gliding that colour on your lips. To celebrate National Lipstick Day today, I bring you some lipstick rules you must follow.
Rule #1 – Exfoliate-exfoliate-exfoliate
Treat your lips just how you would treat your face or skin. Make it a point to exfoliate your lips with a lip balm before applying lipstick on them. Repeat this regime daily.
Rule #2 – Less is more
It is wise to highlight only one feature of your face. If you are going for bold lips, then keep the rest of your face make-up minimal to get that perfect balance.
Rule #3 – Say no to glitter
“Shimmer can look cheap,” says New York city based make-up artist Troy Surratt. “Look for lipsticks with a creamy finish.” Totally agree!
Rule # 4 – Prime time
Using a primer before wearing lipstick is a must as it not only gives the lipstick shade a better colour contrast but also helps your lipstick last longer (psssttt…. you don’t have to keep re-applying it!).
Rule # 5 – Line it up
They say, a lip liner can either be your best friend or your worst enemy. In either case a lip liner has a significant role in achieving that perfect pout. So find the right lip liner for you–probably a shade closest to your lips–and outline your lips first, then wear lipstick. This will define the shape of your lips.
Rule # 6 – Start from the middle
Start your lipstick applying session from the centre of your lips and then spread outward with the help of lip brush.
Rule # 7 – Blotting works
Patting your lips with a tissue or blotting paper comes handy when you need the shade to look deeper and last longer. Wear a lipstick and use blotting, then give it another go with a second coat. This will also add shine to your lips.
Rule # 8 – Remove it
Always remove your lipstick before hitting the bed. Scrub your lips, then use a lip balm or a moisturizer. This process will leave the soft and lips hydrated.
Hey my lovely readers. Guess what? It’s my birthday. Yaaayy! I am so excited as I officially turn 20 today. Wait, what? I can’t believe my teenage years have ended so fast. And I’ve stepped into the next decade. Well, I am really happy on turning 20. Although I can’t move out of the house due to the pandemic, I did a photoshoot of myself with my special outfits of the day. On that note, I am happily sharing my looks for the day.
The Princess Look
In this picture, you can see me wearing a long resort wear strappy outfit. I’ve teamed it with a light touch of make-up and a little floral clip on my hair. In the other picture, I have added a tribal neckpiece to give it a boho look. I find the look really pretty. What say?
The Brunch Look
This blue polka dotted jumpsuit goes well with a casual brunch outing with friends. I have teamed it with big silver hoops and a yellow suitcase bag to give out those perfect senorita vibes. I pretty much love this look. Do you?
The Shimmy Look
Here, I’ve dressed in a red shimmer dress combined with golden leaf-shaped headband and crystal earrings! Don’t miss the hint of colour on my eyes and glossy lips! In one of these pictures, I’ve carried a clutch and worn heels too. Looks over the top? But perfect for some sparkle!
The Corporate Look
Last but not the least comes the corporate look for that boss –vibes style. Here I have combined a pant suit with blazer in lush pink for that feminine touch. Check out the cool frames in the picture. That’s my work station look for you.

The digital world is incomplete without phone apps (applications) that are available in a huge number today. Confused about which app is useful and helpful for you? Don’t be, as I share my list of favourite apps that I’ve got hooked on to. It might help you make a smart choice.
This one stays on top of my game for obvious reasons. I think it is the best social networking site for millennials today. A recent data on some site showed that Instagram is being used by billions of people worldwide. I’m so much in love with this app that I can almost announce that I cannot live without it. There’s so much in it to that the user can try to stay actively engaged at home. It allows one to share pictures and fun videos from daily lives, edit filters, post stories and engage with others. The fact that I use this lovely app many times a day is proof enough that it’s my current all-time favourite.
Another wonderful app that grabbed my attention some few weeks back is Canva. OMG! It’s so amazing. It is an online graphic design publishing platform that allows the user to create social media graphics, presentations, logos, posters and other visual content. Actually, I got to know about this app after I started blogging. Now I use it frequently for my blog images on WordPress as well as on Insta stories or posts. It is easy to use and less time consuming too.
My third most favourite app is InShots. It is a visual content editing app that lets you trim a video, split it, remove a certain section, adjust the speed of your footage, add amazing filters, music, text, animated stickers and even merge different clippings together. It is very efficient to use and also a fun app to work with.
Hah! This has always been on my favourites list, but has become a hero ever since the post-pandemic lockdown. If there’s one app I’ve become really obsessed with right now, it is none other than the Netflix. One of best entertainment apps on the OTT platform that shares amazing visual content.

Well, JULY is here, and it’s time to reveal the personality traits of people born in this month. So, July born people, are you excited? Being a July born myself , I am pretty excited .
Firstly, let me reveal a little bit about July born people . They’re born under the influence of the zodiac sign cancer and carry some interesting traits. These people are emotional, intuitive and also overly protective about the things that they really love a lot. This was just a short description about them. If you wanna know about their characteristics, scroll down and have a look on the things that make them stand out.
#1 They tend to have mood swings
Cancers are known for being moody due to the complexity of their emotions, which can quickly jump from extremely happy to extremely sad. When a Cancer is up, they may be amazing, but if they are upset or uncomfortable, they’ll immediately seek refuge in their shells.
#2 They are complicated and they have many sides to them
Cancers have a very complex nature, and not many people know how to handle someone so complicated, raw, and pure. Their personality is made up of many layers and those born under this month are hard to put into any ‘one’ box.
#3 They dislike unnecessary things
Cancerians are quite determined and seldom do they beg for help! They are always popular because of the charm that they possess. They are very caring. However, nonsense is a huge turn off to them. It’s like they are allergic to it. Unnecessary things or talks pisses them off. If you keep doing nonsense things around them, you are just testing their patience.
#4 They have a strong sense of sympathy
Cancers have a great ability to understand and sympathise with others. They prioritize about other people’s feelings first. They might be in a lot of trouble but they will always care about you if you are in pain. It doesn’t matter physically or mentally but these people always care about their friends.
#5 They are forgiving but never forget
Cancerians are usually pretty bad on taking revenge as they think it would affect their character. Hence, they will avoid talking to the concerned person and will mind their own business. They would recall the bad things you did to them for a lifetime, but after a certain period of time they just let it go and do not burn their hearts for revenge.

I started this blog only a month or two back! And maybe you are wondering. who I am, where I am from, what do I like, and having other such rational questions in your mind. I thought it would be fun to answer some questions, so you will get to know me a little more. So here I am, answering them all by way of a fun rapid-fire of the typical ‘meet the blogger’ round.
Let’s get started. 20 of them. Yikes… that’s a boatload but let’s try it.
What made you start this blog?
Well honestly speaking, the main reason I started this blog was because I got extremely bored during lockdown. There was nothing to do except doing binge-watching the entire day. And one day, my mom (being a writer!) suggested that I should start blogging. I researched a little and soon realised that blogging was something that would help me pen my thoughts. And today, just a month later, I am in love with blogging.
2. What’s your blogging style?
I don’t really have a style but I like to express my opinion or suggestion on things. I love to blog about life and fashion.
3. What are your 3 favourite TV shows?
Friends, Riverdale,13 Reasons Why.
4. What’s the most beautiful place you have ever been?
Goa. It is the most beautiful and amazing place I have ever been to. It’s my all-time favourite.
5. What’s the one food you could never bring yourself to eat?
Eggplant. Yikes! I can never think of eating it.
6. What’s your favourite ice-cream flavor?
Easy. It’s Belgian Chocolate.
7. What’s your favourite saying that people hear you repeat over and over?
Well, my favourite lines are “So mean” and I say it almost every time I get irritated with something.
8. What’s your favourite day of the week?
Saturday. It’s the weekend and I get to stay up late and watch my favourite movies.
9. What is your favourite color?
I love Black.
10. Describe your family in one word.
11. When you are having a bad day what do you do to make yourself feel better?
I play the music and dance because these are the two things that make me happy.
12. What inspires you?
I find inspiration in random things such as an article or a song lyric, or a video maybe. However, the thing that inspires me the most is music.
13. What annoys you?
I get annoyed by silly things. Eg: if things don’t turn out my way. Or if someone says something wrong to me, I get easily annoyed.
14. What type of music do you listen to? Or which is that song that you can hear over and over again? I mostly listen to pop music or sometimes even hip hop. The song that I can hear over and over again is “Look what you made me do” by Taylor Swift. It’s my best song.
15. What’s your biggest fear?
A long haired girl haunting me through the television. Kidding, it’s actually fast rides.
16. If you could shop for free at one store, which one would you choose?
If I could shop for free I am guessing… I would go to Zara or H&M. In beauty I’d prefer Nykaa.
17. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Probably, somewhere near a beach.
18. If you can travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?
If I could travel anywhere in the world I would love to visit Europe – I want to discover Paris, London, Italy, Greece, Miami, Germany.
19. Who would play you in a movie about your life?
I googled actresses with brown eyes and straight hair and I guess Shraddha Kapoor looks a bit like me! Would be a pretty boring movie though, hahaha.
20. Last but not the least, what do you do for fun?
There are several things that I do for fun face-time calls with friends, going out, shopping, click selfies and much more.
