My Life-Changing New Year Eve Ritual

I’m always nervous around the 31st of December. Might come as a surprise, but my nervousness has absolutely nothing to do with my outfit for my NYE celebrations. It’s just the anxiety of a new beginning, of a crisp, untouched page of a brand new book.

I have a tiny little secret ritual that I’ve been doing since a few (almost 5) years now and I find it being the only thing to calm my anxious nerves on the last day of an eventful year. I started it with my best friend years ago.  We make it a point to meet even if it’s for a couple of minutes on this day and do this ritual together. What started as a silly ritual has turned into something immensely  meaningful, impactful and literally, year-changing, without us even realising it. I’ve seen the MAJOR success of it and hence this year, I wanted to share it with you guys.

LESSON #1 of Building A Winter Wardrobe

As I anticipated and prepared for my move to Belgium, it dawned upon me that life was not only getting me to Shailin, but also to yet another fashion opportunity! For the first time in my life, I was going to build a season specific wardrobe. I needed full blown Eskimo wear (yes, my indian skin froze to unconsciousness even at 12* in the beginning) and I found myself buying almost everything ‘wintery’ that caught my eye. If it fit my personal style, and ‘looked’ like it would keep my warm, it was an instant add to cart moment. Mistake numero uno.

Of Winter Tales & Missed Concerts

My first winter here in Europe is has been as picturesque and exciting as I dreamed it’d be! However, if I’m being totally honest, it’s been bittersweet. Cuz’ no matter what, I miss home. Especially now that the days are shorter and the skies are greyer. I think of my family, my friends, of lavish Indian meals and end up going through my friend’s Instagram stories whenever there is the slightest pang of melancholy. I miss my gang and our revelries back in India, most of which were centered around good food and great music! Luckily for me, my friends are equal enthusiasts about music festivals and we love attending one whenever we can. (Coldplay with my girls was absolutely unforgettable!!)

A Day With Dior

Sometimes, a brand is synonymous with a certain aesthetic. Other times, a brand inspires your aesthetic. Since I was a little girl, I’ve always looked at Dior in awe and aspired to be associated with them some time in life. Feels like I blinked and the next second here I am, hitting publish on this blog post, being thankful for every opportunity thats come my way so far. Especially the ones I had dreamed of since I was a little girl.
