Beauty and beyond

Today, we live in a world who judges us by our superficial appearances. We are constantly shown that being young is beautiful or being fair skinned and slim is.

The society has stereotyped beauty into a superficial skin deep thing. For me, beauty is not just skin deep.

Yes outer beauty is a great thing and it's a good thing we strive to achieve it and look good.
You, me, everybody!

But for me, it is much more and hence I am writing a poem along the same lines :)

In the smile of a child and the mother who smiles back beauty shines
In the falling of leaves during autmn beauty pervades

In the darkness of night where stars shine bright beauty deepens

Fashion sense simplified - choose your colours!

Hey! So it's been a long time since I posted about fashion. If someone had told me few years back that I would be blogging occasionally about this genre, I wouldn't have believed them. Lol. I am not a fashionista per say, but I believe that a sense of style and clothing goes a long way. So here I am, sharing a few things with all of you, which you can use in your day to day lives.

We all hear the word "Fashion sense" when it comes to clothing and dressing up.
Whether it is celebrities, the media, corporate functions, house parties or traditional gatherings, the word' Fashion Sense' crops up everywhere.

The thing is, combining outfits and creating a sense of style isn't really that complicated as it seems. It is mostly about choosing the right colour combination than anything else. Of course accesories play a great role and for women make-up too, but those are secondary.

As the saying goes 'Clothes maketh a man' We all can spruce up our wardrobes …
