Book Review: Honour &  The Bastard of Istanbul by Elif Shafak 

After reading Forty Rules of Love,  I was absolutely in love with the author’s writing style and how she narrates everyday yet so deep stories without making it sound like you’re reading something  set in a time you know nothing about. I started reading Honour while I was at the salon getting highlights in my…

Not Forgiving, Not Forgetting. 

They say we never really forget and we never really forgive. Like Carrie Bradshaw once put it, “can we forget without forgiving  and can we forgive without forgetting?” And what if we are incapable of doing either of them?  There are some things that I can forget. Him, for example. That I can forget. But…

Black widow! 

She missed him like a drowning man desperately misses the ability to inhale without having his lungs bursting. She missed him in ways that could not be explained. She would walk out of the places where she over indulged herself into things that would keep her brain and thoughts so occupied she’d literally be losing…

Why not? 

They say we always regret the chances we didn’t take more than the chances we actually took. We keep hearing how life is too short to wait for things to happen to us. We keep wondering and thinking and wondering again how we’d plan a holiday next year, how we would open ourselves more to…

Book Review: After You by Jojo Moyes

This book is a sequel to my really favourite and recently reviewed Me Before You. After reading Me Before You,  I was really looking forward to knowing what actually happens to our dear character, Ms. Clark, after Will was gone. Don’t we all want to know that after we finish reading a book?  (this strangely…

Book Review: The Forty Rules of Love by Elif Shafak 

The book that left me in a really weird mental state. The book that left me unable to be anxious anymore. The book that made me feel there is no such thing as coincidence in God’s scheme, He has planned everything for us,  already,  beforehand. I was meant to read this book right now,  at…

My Top June Reads and Reviews

After overindulging into movies for longer than 2 years, I finally decided to go back to books. One,  I missed reading, and second I watch most of the movies half-asleep. Books have been my best friends since I was a child. They were probably my only friend till I was really 10 or 11 year…

Product Review: Hollywood Style Mineral Clay Mask

Oily skin which is also prone to acne and spots is the worst curse you can be born with.  Some blame the hormones, some genes & other bad diet but really there is no way around it. The only way to deal with it is through it. When you are blessed with this irrevocable curse,…

Conscious mind: The real creator! 

If you have not read the book The Secret yet,  you need to take a look at that thing.  It mostly just reinforces the same concept which we have been hearing for ages,  think positive,  have faith,  don’t lose hope,  these are all the positive  vibes we are constantly told to generate in order to…

The Power of Acceptance!

The thought for pondering over today: is feeling of rejection stronger than feeling accepted by someone we think is in a position to reject us as individuals, friends, lovers, human beings? No one has been able to comprehend how  it works when it comes to human attraction towards certain kind of people, circumstances and emotions….

5 things people in early twenties need to know!

I have always heard it from those in their late thirties that you begin to enjoy life only after you hit thirty, you relax more and you know more. After celebrating my 2*th birthday (gawd, I feel old now), I can’t agree more. The older you get the more you realize the importance of little…

Do you really ‘see’ me?

To the man, who saw me, and saved me! We all have a desire to be ‘seen’, really, the way we believe we are, or the way we believe we should be, but we are not really sure. This desire is specially heightened when we are on verge of losing sense of self. Imagine standing…
