| 2016 |

What a year 2016 has been! So much has changed. So much has happened.

- I finally graduated with a major in Marketing and minor in Human Resources. My graduation was long overdue because of some unplanned decisions and immature lifestyle choices. But I've never let anything stop me from moving onto the next step. So I moved back home and finished my graduation! I was so proud of myself!

- Because this is a post about 2016 achievements I most definitely have to include a Hospitality Management Diploma, which to be honest I did only because I was bored of just going to college and plus I didn't have many certificates in my name. I actually finished it and again exceeded my own expectations.

- Then came the best day of 2016. I was in Mumbai for a wedding and ended up giving an Interview for an internship at the current company I work at. First, I was so sure I was never going to get hired! But I did! AND I even managed to score a permanent place at the company.

- I took a trip to Vietnam - one of the best places I've traveled to with my family. We were there for about 10 days. We got to stay in the heart of the city where we could just walk and experience the locality. Also got to eat the Vietnamese food which was so good. Yeah 2016 was a year where I got way too excited about food!

- Blogging wise this year was the biggest slump! But I finally got it redesigned and now I'm more motivated then ever to bring you fresh and content that I as a reader would love to read!

I'm so excited for 2017! I'm going to try and make it so much better than 2016. This year for once I'm not setting any goals for myself. I'm just going go ahead and welcome each and every opportunity with open arms. Moreover my one thought about 2017 is that I just want to learn as much as I can. Whether it is Photoshop or learning how to design a website. I just want to learn.

Have the best year you guys! All the best for all that you wish to achieve in 2017!

| Oh Baby You Should Go And Love Yourself |

Is fat really the worst thing a human being can be? Is fat worst that vindictive, jealous, shallow, evil, vain, boring, or cruel? - J.K. Rowling

I wasn't always overweight. Actually to be honest I don't even know what term should I be using to describe my shape - big, fat, overweight, plump, etc. The reason for me being unable to describe myself is because I have never accepted the fact that I'm either of those things. The only thing I've accepted for a fact is that I've gained about 15 kilos in the last 4 years. And that's okay. Maybe I should have been more careful in watching what I eat, but it's not the end of the world. Initially I wasn't as confident. I used to get asked this all the time - What happened? - How did you gain so much weight? - Why aren't you doing anything about it? - While yes I do agree that I should have done something about it because I feel very very unhealthy, it's nobody's business and it's just rude to ask someone about their weight or shape.

Right now I'm the most confident about my weight that I've ever been in the past. There's a little hack to it: Start uploading more and more pictures of yourself out on all your active social media accounts. I'm not talking selfies, I'm talking full length pictures of yourself. It's very important to know that the world (people who don't know you exist) doesn't simply care what we size we are, it's just us who build a notion around ourselves about the whole world judging us about the way we look. We're all beautiful. Everyone has a different idea of what beautiful is, so technically we're all beautiful for that some person!

YES. I am a person who gets intimidated very very easily. I see a beautiful picture of someone and I'd go like damn! I wish I had that butt or wish I had those abs. But I've come to terms with the fact that, if I want a particular shape, I'm going to have to work towards it without ever looking back and with a sense of commitment which to be fair I've never had. Maybe next year I'll start working towards my dream body or the year after that, or maybe never, who cares! I'm just having too much fun having my desserts and my greasy food. Saying that (this should be a reminder for myself) I do need to make tiny changes in my lifestyle because I'm starting to run out of breath every time I go up a flight of stairs. That's something I need to start changing. Though not a FITTER Lifestyle (yet), I want to start working towards a HEALTHIER Lifestyle.

If you're reading this and you've ever faced body image issues, please just get up - dress yourself in the best outfit you own - put some makeup on - and get on with your daily goals. Oh and don't forget to say YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL to yourself in the mirror.

| Fashion Terms You Need To Know |

2016 has been a fantastic year for all things fashion. With 90s making an epic comeback with chokers, overalls and brown lips we also saw the junior Hadid taking over the fashion scene while Instagram is now basically SnapChat without the invigorating filters. Also, makeup videos is basically what you scroll through your Instagram suggestions. Keeping up with Fashion is hard and keeping up with the Fashion Lingo is even harder! But lets not fret about it! I've got you covered. 

1. Avant Garde:
This is one term you'll most commonly hear or read around. It basically means people or works that are experimental, radical, or unorthodox, with respect to art, culture, and society. The avant-garde pushes the boundaries of what is accepted as the norm or the status quo, primarily in the cultural realm.

2. Pret-a-porter
This term is generally used to describe the designer clothes sold ready to wear rather than made to measure.

3. Haute Couture:
One of the most commonly used terms, this term describes expensive, fashionable clothes produced by leading fashion houses.

4. Sartorial:
We use this one so often. Derived from the Latin term – Sartorius, it is used to describe clothing, manner, and or style of a dress.

5. Silhouette:
Utilized often in fashion and fitness, it is simply describes the shape of the body. That aside, a silhouette can also be a shape created after you have worn a certain style.
