Here’s What Your Room Should Look Like Based On Your Personality

Hello, dearies. In this too-short life, it’s such a waste to not be all of yourself. And by that I mean, all the elements of your life should be in sync with your persona (including your pillow covers, yep). There’s truly no point if you aren’t out there, in all your glory, creating magic. And what better way to speak about your true glittery self than making your room, your own heaven? Be it your furniture or your curtain draping, this is how your room should look like based on your personality: The Effortless Modern Heart. Do you feel like…Continue Reading

10 Things No Self-Loving Person Will Ever Compromise On, In Life

People confuse self-love to be an egoistical sword that is drawn out every time you challenge a person or their opinion. I beg to differ. Self-love is an armour. The kind that protects you from not being led into things that you don’t fully feel committed to. It is also a fantastic agent that assists you in drawing boundaries and learning to say a ‘no’ when it’s really difficult to. Most importantly, self-love shows you to stand up for what you believe in, what you deserve and what you are worthy of. There are quite a lot of things any…Continue Reading

11 Relationship Milestones That Prove You & Your Partner Are Meant To Be (Forever!)

It’s easy to fall in love but it’s quite another story to keep staying in it. Because after the ‘getting to know them’ phase comes a whole new world of relationship milestones. But the best part is that if you’re with the right person, these milestones seem to just breeze by, without any thought. For example, you feel completely at ease when you’re around them even though you’ve just met. Or the fact that’s it’s very natural for you to imagine spending the rest of your life with them (minus any Bollywood music in your brain’s background). If you are…Continue Reading

12 ‘Pride and Prejudice’ Quotes That Prove Love Can Be Hard But Worth It

I think a lot of us consider this Jane Austen novel to be the perfect love story. But in my humble opinion, it was far from perfect. I mean, if you’ve read the book you know how Elizabeth and William hated each other’s guts almost through half of the story. But their love (when they did confess it to each other) was honest, human and so, so beautiful. These 12 quotes are proof that often love can feel hard and wary but all those struggles are worth it in the end. When love brings out your inner child. When you…Continue Reading

This Lavani On ‘What Is Consent?’ Is EXACTLY What India Needs Right Now

In recent times, if there ever was something spoken on the topic of consent, it was Amitabh Bachchan’s terrific performance in the movie, ‘Pink’. It brought to light the importance of the term and how misconstrued it is in modern Indian society. Last week I discovered a phenomenal documentary by Paromita Vohra, a celebrated filmmaker, who voiced about this subject with delightful boldness. While one might expect such heavy visuals to back the seriousness of the topic at hand, Vohra takes you by surprise. She begins to create a dialogue between two women, both of varying ages, through medium of…Continue Reading

11 Emotions You Go Through When You’ve Got The Vacation Hangover

I love vacations. And they’re even sweeter when I’ve had back to back tiring days and work feels like a mammoth shitting on my chest. Well, the pre-vacay feels are GOLD. But the post-vacay ones suck worse than ever. And if you’re someone who’s just come back from a holiday or are in the middle of one, you’re well aware of these 11 emotional stages of your brain.

I mean yes, we’ve got to earn our living and not die hungry, but come on, the feeling of sleeping without any care in the world is the BESTESTESTESTEST feeling ever! And you know what? I’d give anything to curl back under my blanket and ditch work for a couple more hours of sweet sleep. Alas!

To My 4 AM Person, I Love How We Always Speak Our Hearts Out

Every once in a while, we stumble upon a heart that simply gets us. Even with our quirks, flaws and the scars upon our hearts, this soul embraces who we are, entirely. They bring in a layer of comfort with them which allows us to pour whatever’s in our heart in front of them, without the slightest bit of hesitation. It’s just that they are such brilliant listeners that we can’t help but open up and not be afraid while doing so. Ayrah and Varun share a similar connection. They both can be completely exasperated at five in the morning,…Continue Reading

On Change: Every Goodbye Leads To A New Hello

We’ve been told to hold on to what we have. Two palms, gripping hard. Refusing to let go of the love that is ours. It’s only fair. We all crave for constants in this world where things change in the blink of an eye. We want something solid, something that won’t slip away through the gaps between our fingers. However, if we were only taught to see how adventures are born, we would not hurt our hearts by clinging onto people and connections that have gone stale. We would not feel guilty about leaving spaces and places where we are…Continue Reading

Here’s What True Love Should Feel Like: Free, Wild & Ever-Flowing

It didn’t matter where I was going, all I wanted was the wind on my face, my hair loose, doing it over and over again. I remember being free. Nothing weighed me down. No expectations, no reality. My heart was open to all of life and I was there, in that moment, blessed and alive. Over time, I’ve wondered if life is so vast and expansive, why should love be the same? Because…Continue Reading
