#AdviceThatMaterred

Hi friends,

We all dream of a life of success and achievement but is dreaming enough to achieve your dreams? To live our dream, we need to work hard and most importantly in the right direction. Yes, it is equally important to dream because success begins with a dreamer's will. Along with Self-motivation, we also need the best advice of someone who can guide us to reach our goals. A constant motivation and appreciation is always required to make our dreams a reality.

I too had a dream! A dream to do something good. A dream to become something. A dream to become Independent. I had a dream but I had no idea how to achieve my dream. After completing my studies, I did not get opportunity to any job and then for sometime I felt confused as I could not do anything to achieve my dreams. But I always believed in myself and in my dreams. Then I started thinking what I clearly wanted. Why go for anything else? Why not do something which I really, really want to do. I asked my brother for his advice. I asked him what he thinks I can do really well. He told me, what I already knew. But his Advice Mattered. He told me to make career in fashion and writing because this is what I am passionate about. He have seen my fashion writing skills and then I decided to start my blog and write. He helped me whenever I needed his advice because I feel that I am a very confused girl and never able to figure out what I exactly wanted to do. But my brother's advice put me on the path of fulfilling my aspirations. His guidance and support increased my confidence. Now I am clear what I want to do all my life. I thank him for encouraging me in my journey of success and again making me feel confident. He removed the obstacles in my life and his help made my dreams a reality. Today I feel independent and successful. I feel I am living my dream and this felling of achieving dreams and become independent is something above all happy feelings. Being independent made me feel secured and I feel success is the biggest happiness.

I would say the right path to achieve your success if good advice and guidance. Students can achieve their dreams with Stoodnt . Stoodnt helps students in achieving their dreams by providing free counselling session and students can connect with top international counselors. It aims at providing step by step Quality Expert Guidance for best admission outcome.

I am blogging about my dreams and the people who helped make them true for the #AdviceThatMattered activity at BlogAdda in association with Stoodnt

#BestZapStore

Hi friends,

We've changed the way we go shopping. We stay at home and buy everything from clothing, accessories, books, electronics without ever leaving our living rooms because E-commerce offers immense choice. The choice of products online can seem almost infinite. Sometimes what to choose and what to not from so many leading e-commerce websites like Amazon, Flipkart, Jabong is  what makes shopping experience confusing and time consuming. But I am going to introduce a website or a single platform for all the best products across e-commerce stores including Flipkart, Amazon, Paytm, etc. At this store, we can find all the best deals on products handpicked by its users because we usually get confused after checking too many websites, too many products and too many offers. So at Zapstore we can easily get personalized recommendation.

Zapstore is a one stop shop for all your e-commerce needs, and will get you the world of online shopping at your fingertips.  Zapstore offers so many advantages for consumers. It aims at providing the best products across online stores in India, so customers can get best of the best!

So I came across this wonderful store and really liked the idea of creating my collection/my store. My sister always says that I have a great eye and I can pick the best stuff from myriad options available online. She asked me create a collection of wedding wear essentials, which she can buy later on. I downloaded the Zapstore chrome plugin and  curated a collection worth Rs.50,000. I added items from many categories given on the site like women's clothing, accessories, watches etc.


When looking to curate wedding wear collection, I decided to all these two sarees from Amazon. These are very beautiful. The mirror work on border of the beige saree is exquisite. I selected these two golden wedges from Jabong, which I think will go best with these sarees.


Then I browsed some really trendy dupattas at Myntra. I picked 4 colorful dupattas which are in trend like the phulkari dupatta and art silk printed dupattas.


Then a good classy watch is what we all fashionistas must have. I choose Tommy Hilfiger watch and a Police watch which I think would be loved by my sister. I will be showing by sharing my collection to my sister on facebook. I enjoyed curating this collection.

You can check MY STORE and you can buy anything you like! I think Zapstore is a unique online platform where we can refer & share unique products to our friends.


I am making my own store for the #BestZapStore activity at BlogAdda in association with Zapstore.

FREEDOM FROM DAMPNESS

Hello friends,

I wish you all a very Happy Independence Day. On this day, we all mainly talk about how we can get freedom from crimes to ensure safety of all. But today I will talk about how we can get freedom from dampness in our homes. I take pledge to become a responsible citizen and be aware of my neighbourhood surroundings to ensure safety of our residences and structures. Just like us, our homes also need doctors and I trust Dr. Fixit for my home (Doctor of waterproofing ). Dr. Fixit have taken the initiative for leakage free India and I would like to be a part of this initiative with Dr. Fixit this Independence Day and say no to damp walls, damp ceilings, rising dampness, cracks and leakages by spreading awareness about public health and safety, the problem areas in our  home and their solutions.


I recently found damp patches on the walls of my bedroom which had a bad odour and I was shocked also to see damp interior walls. On the same day, one of my mommy's friend also visited our place and when she entered the room, she was coughing because of the smell. I felt somewhere I was responsible for her suffering from damp. I made a mental note to get this problem fixed as soon as possible and take a pledge to live in a dampfree home.

I noticed that the area around the window frames was also damp. It was then I could see the signs and signals that my home needed waterproofing. It was time to focus on crucial essentials for my home. I contacted Waterproofing experts and after checking the terrace, basement, external walls, kitchens and washrooms, they identified the source of this dampness. The dampness was a result of  excessive moisture which was caused due to rising damp and seepage due to damaged window frame. Interior walls were damp because of water from outside was getting into the brickwork through cracks or gaps in the outside walls.

Then I realised that we could have prevented the damage by having a proper waterproofing solution. Damp wall conditions contribute towards the growth of molds and inhalation of mold spores can cause it to parasitically grow on living tissues or attach itself to the respiratory tract causing chronic respiratory diseases. Now this is really scary. So better we get a good exterior 'raincoat' which will ensure that the exterior walls are protected from the lashing rains. There are unique waterproofing products like Dr. Fixit Raincoat- a high performance acrylic elastomeric coating for external walls and Dr. Fixit Newcoat Ezee which can bear heat, humidity and rainfall and form a layer around the construction of external walls as well as terraces. These products are resistant to algae and fungus. And what's more interesting part if that Dr. Fixit Raincoat offers 700 shades of colors to choose from!

We spend lot of money on expensive furnishings, exquisite carpets and awe inspiring interiors. But we forget to concentrate on the most important thing for our home which is Waterproofing. Let's take a pledge to get FREEDOM FROM DAMPNESS and ensure good health of our home and our happy family.

Dr. Fixit has come up with an interesting ad with Sir Amitabh Bachchan, where he tries to inform the viewers about the advantages of waterproofing our home and disadvantages of Non-waterproofing.

Click on the link to watch the amazing ad: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wIdpxZnD_eA&feature=youtu.be




Waterproofing has multiple benefits and it ensure longer life of our homes. So we all must not consider waterproofing an unnecessary financial burden but consider it as an essential prevention option to stop future damage. THINK WATERPROOFING, THINK DR. FIXIT

BOOK REVIEW: THE STORY OF A SUICIDE BY SRIRAM AYER

Hello friends,

Today I am going to review this novel- The Story Of A Suicide by Sriram Ayer. The main characters in this story are Sam, Charu, Mani and Hari. The illustrations are by Ghana. Today's young generation is expressive, self-absorbed, afraid and fearless, impulsive and hurried. They make quick decisions in anger and frustration without thinking about the consequences. In a world that makes unreasonable demands of them, many are disillusioned about their education, relationships, jobs, sexuality, bullying and abuse.

In the backdrop of a powerful story and visuals, this project aims to reach out to young people, by verbalising their struggles through the story, informing the do's and don'ts when they face challenges, and providing a platform to share their experience.


The story is divided into 31 chapters  with titles and this makes the story more exciting as we become curious to read what happens next.

The story revolves around Sam, Hari, Charu and Mani who all are studying in the same college. Sam is attracted towards Charu. Charu is independent and fearless girl, feminist types. She speaks her mind openly. Sam who is a self-proclaimed tech-geek and a rich guy.

Mani and Hari are gay in the story. Hari who faced sexual abuse at her home by his own uncle, when he was a child. This affected his life badly. Mani who belongs to a poor family, suffered a lot and his mother worked day and night at kiln to earn so that her son can study. His father left both of them. Now he wanted to study well so that he can give all the happiness of the world to his mother, which she could never get.

Situations become complicated when Charu want space in a relationship and Sam's over possesive nature made her feel uncomfortable. Sam  becomes criminal minded and  with Aditya he plan something shocking! Mani tries to commit suicide but his friend Charu saved his life. He tried to commit suicide as he could not score well in English Language. All these characters face different problems in their life and the end is tragic that you should read and know yourself.

What I loved about this story are the conversations between these characters. Through these conversations, the author informed us indirectly about the do's and don'ts when we face big problems in our life. The tips I found useful in this story are:



  • All of us have gone through unfair situations in life and at many times we have reacted rather childishly with less forethought and understanding of the consequences.Much of the problems can be negated by killing our impulsive and reflexive responses.
  • It says suicide is cowardice and I agree. Inflicting pain our ourselves and others is not the solution. We must introspect on how can we solve the problem.


  • I loved the advice that Mani's teacher Madhavi gives him: "There will always be a time when someone whom you truly love, may have to leave you. It is hard, I know how it feels, when we try to possess a person, love evaporates soon. What matters is how much you loved and how much someone loved you ".
  • I also liked when Mani says " There are many deep secrets and demons within us that we do not have answers to. Some we might never find. It's okay. Before we accept each other, it is important to accept ourselves. Accept our feelings, our past, our flaws, our situations. Once we begin to accept, we will start appreciating what we have now and be grateful. This way we can be less anxious about life, more secure, so that we can love more ".




MY TIPS ON DEALING WITH LIFE'S PROBLEMS

Sometimes the only option our disturbed mind can see is SUICIDE. When we find ourselves so incapable of handling anything, we simply wish to disappear. But wait..Suicide is not the answer. Give yourself some time to think. I agree some people have to go through so much pain  and suffering at every stage of life. We all go through moment of panic and fear and sometimes life is always so mean to some people, but that should not make us weak. Suicide is Cowardice and we are not cowards. We must focus on becoming strong.



  •  Life is a struggle and the fight goes on. I would say whenever we face any problem big or small in our life, we must stay calm and think calmly what can be done to sort it out. We need to pause and think in peace. My idea when I face any problem is to avoid it for few days, for example if you're angry on yourself or on someone or on some situation, just dont pay attention to it for sometime, dont react, dont get angry. It will disturb your mind and when you're calm you can think about it peacefully.
  •  If we are unable to get any solution, you must seek help of your parents and siblings because our family can help us in every situation, no matter how complicated it is. Our family will never judge us and will always stand for us because they love us unconditionally and they accept us for who and what we are. So trust your family.
  •  Also believe in yourself. Don't let your mind think negatively. Our own negative thoughts are our first enemy. We must learn to train our mind to think positive in every tough situation of your life.
  • Suicide is not always a sudden thought that just comes up in our mind and suddenly we decide to take our life. Sometimes it's sudden thought after we face undesirable situation, and sometimes this develops over a period of time. For example, if some people are suffering from  long time and they feel helpless and somewhere in their mind, they feel tired of struggles in their life. So they might  think of ending their life. But the solution is, dont let these thoughts develop at the first place. Even if you ain't able to find out any solution then dont ever think about giving up on your life. Thoughts develops into action very quickly, so try to think positive as much as possible, keep the hope alive. Think of a better future, no matter how dark is your present or past. Everyday  is a new start and each day can bring lots of opportunities and solutions to your problems which you don't have now.




  • See first accept that everyone face problems in their lives and you're not the only one. This thought might give you some strength that you're not alone.  Dont react impulsively, try to be master of your mind. If your mind is in control of you, you can overcome any harsh situation in your life. When your mind starts thinking about all the negative things in your life, it's when you loose yourself.
  • ALWAYS LOVE YOURSELF, if you'will love yourself, you'll never ever think of ending your life. If one chapter is bad in your life, then dont expect other chapters to be bad too.  
  • Life is a beautiful gift, learn to live as beautifully as you can. Make each day special. Surround yourself with people who love you and will guide you to right path. Always try to manage your thoughts, share them with your closed ones. And if you don't have any friend or family member near you, then try to consult a doctor, there is no harm in going to a consultant in order to deal with your life's problems.


This story is a such a well-written story and I think these types of stories can really help youngsters and also their parents to understand them. I would like to thank author of this novel, for writing such a good story!

I hope all my readers will read this story and this might help many of you to overcome your problems in life!

Have a great life!

A FLORAL AFFAIR WITH DIVYA KANAKIA

Hi everyone,

Hope you're having a great day!

I wanted to do an outfit post wearing Lehanga, so finally for this post I wore this beautiful floral printed Lehanga by Divya Kanakia. I fell in love with it, the colour, the prints and the designing of it.

With this look, I added this gorgeous pair of blue jhumkas and colorful bangles.
For makeup, I kept it to the minimal and opted for a simple hairdo as I wanted this Lehanga to stand out.


You can check Divya Kanakia's designs on her website.

Until then,
xoxo
Vandana :)
