It’s been an amazing Holiday season so far Darlings!
I’ve been spending some quality time with the girls who are most special to me and I bet you
saw the pictures too.
But there is one girl who sometimes needs my attention more than anyone else – and that girl is
It’s true, isn’t it? We’re all so occupied trying to ensure that everything is in place we sometimes
fail to direct our attention towards ourselves.
Neglecting yourself should be banned if I’m being honest!
So for the final Holiday Happy Hours, I decided to treat myself to some much-needed me-time!
If you’re looking for some ideas on how you can create happy hours for yourself, keep reading.
1) Indulging is Important
Sometimes it’s better to just give in to indulgences. The two
things that I love indulging in are
a) Tequila (No points for guessing why you see me with
a Don and Julio pinata)
These are my guilty pleasure! What are yours?
Poetry is my haven.
It’s what I immerse myself in when I want to just forget what’s happening around me.
Words written in a book, seem to take a life of its own.
And that somehow feels liberating.
A lot of you might not know this about me, but I also love writing poetry.
Sometimes, words just come to me while I’m doing something mundane, and I am sure to
quickly note it down.
Let me share one of the poems I wrote, real quick;
Let your stories be told not by sad eyes.
But with warm smiles.
Celebrate the lines that come with it.
Each wrinkle, a sign of a warrior’s grace.
So the universe succumbs to your will.
Let it know, that you’re just not done yet.”
I am CRAZY about Holiday movies. There isn’t any Holiday Themed movie that I
haven’t seen. So come holidays, my favorite thing to do is to start watching all the new movies.
It instantly lifts my mood!
4) Old Hindi Songs
Now, this I can do for hours on end.
I love driving up to Manhattan Beach, sitting on the lifeguard’s tower, and listening to music.
It stirs up all kinds of emotions and I believe it’s always better to feel your feelings!
5) Leafing through latest magazine issues
For as long as I can remember I’ve been obsessed
with the glossy pages of fashion magazines. Somehow, they were the cornerstone of this
immense love for fashion that I have.
Even today, when the world is going digital, I find immense pleasure in just going through them and getting some inspiration.
Also, if you’re wondering where my outfit is from – it’s from the Lovely Brittany Xavier’s collection with ISNPR, check it out here: INSPR X Brittany Xavier
