How to live passionately no matter your age

This is extremely intimidating to come across people with high positive vibes in the midst of our day to day chaotic lives.

It just lends so much of positive perspective to our own life. But yes one needs to have the attitude to imbibe the positivity. Not many people get influenced by hearing things until and unless they have an open mind to listen to constructive things around them and try to incorporate it in their life.

I extremely get infatuated by people who can spread such knowledge around and I tend to appreciate the way they have incorporated the same in their life.

Isabel Allende is 71 yrs old lady who despite growing older imparts an incredible perspective in living life passionately.

No matter how old are you, if you live your life passionately then you live your life to the fullest. I Liked the things she spoke about – Freedom- not bothered anymore to prove yourself to anyone;  here goes the video of her talk (for TED) where you can find out more about it – may be it can a good influence in your life too.

ASLEEP

484834_10151756718591887_877974368_n

 

While reading the book ‘Perks of being a Wallflower’ I came across this track name…on checking  online and  I loved it..I could not find the official video for this hence just the track.

The mood is defnitely not happy here…but a different one..bit eerie…not many might feel connected…but for me there is a hopefulness…and I love the tune of the song…here goes the lyrics…

 

Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
I’m tired and I
I want to go to bed

Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
And then leave me alone
Don’t try to wake me in the morning
‘Cause I will be gone
Don’t feel bad for me
I want you to know
Deep in the cell of my heart
I will feel so glad to go

Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
I don’t want to wake up
On my own anymore

Sing to me
Sing to me
I don’t want to wake up
On my own anymore

Don’t feel bad for me
I want you to know
Deep in the cell of my heart
I really want to go

There is another world
There is a better world
Well, there must be
Well, there must be
Well, there must be
Well, there must be
Well…

Bye bye
Bye bye
Bye…

While browsing through internet I have been coming across beautiful house interiors and get intrigued by different ways home fragrances are used around the house to add to the decor in terms of vision and beautiful fragrance.

 

PERFUMED CANDLES

Candles are easy to put anywhere and if its scented then more of a reason to have them placed in every room.

Diptique Paris has amazing perfumed candles. I love the way the candle is used on the coffee table as seen below.

REED DIFFUSER

This is a new way of freshening up the indoor air. If you find this a bit expensive then there are different ways available on web to make your own reed diffusers. I have some recipes for you here and here .

Beautify your Make Up Dresser

I was exploring a bit on the options on how to change the look of my dresser. I want to give more feminine, tidy look and at the same time it should look pretty.

I shortlisted some options and wanted to share with you. If you are also looking to set up your dresser then may be it will be a help.

A dresser with a self mirror is quite convenient and this white dresser here just enhances the colour of the things kept on it. There is so much scope to work on the display of stuff here well cordinated with rest of the elements in the room.

If you just have a table then don’t feel disappointed  as you have your own choice for a lovely mirror. A carved mirror like here in the photo or a simple glass mirror for a more sophisticated look.

Pastel decorative things imparts a soft feminine touch to the look as seen here.

If you have space constraints. Then this dresser is a good option.

Check out the site here. The stool is also a storage box, so you have good space to stuff all your make up and skin care essentials.

Organize your things on a tray and it gives more character to the dresser.

A small table top mirror for close up look will be useful and if its this pretty which girl will say no to this option. :)

You can check out the site here for ordering. I just bumped across this site hence sharing with you guys. But if you have a different option then go ahead.

I love the concept of having a tray to organize the things as it effortlessly gives a lovely look.

Like here I love this white tray to keep the brushes and lip balms.

pinterest2- vanity tray 2 A simple straight line tray gives more of a sophisticated look. Silver and fuchsia combination is becoming my favourite for the posh look.

Here is another look if you want to try a Gold rimmed mirror tray.

And not to forget the most essential accessories are the boxes to keep your tiny make up bits. Check out Container store for all sort of requirements. (They ship worldwide; just change your location before ordering)

Since these are transparent acrylic material; they go with almost any look. Quite useful to have these.

whats in the bag

IMG_4343 copy

 

 

It is always exciting to see what women carry in their bags. I have been thinking of doing a post myself of the things what i usually carry around. But at the moment i will keep it on hold and have gotten you the list of things that i carry in my survival make up pouch.

From the left-

I use lot of Kohl instead of eyeliner, so you can see the Kohl pencil from Lakme – it is from the Eyeconic range.

Mascara- Is also from the Eyeconic Range, and i find this one very easy to apply and has a great effect.

Lakme Complexion Care Cream- This is a tinted moisturizer, which gives a soft finished base. I have a dry skin so this works very good for me.

M&S Cocoa Butter Hand & Nail cream-  with the season change the hands need little pampering as we keep them washing all day. So i carry this hand and nail cream which is pretty good to sustain for the day.

MAC I M Passioned- Bright pink lipstick..to brighten up any look.

Rimmel Blush – Keeping little blush handy for surprise evening outings.

Bobby Pins & Hair Tie- I always keep some pins and a hair tie for emergency purpose. You never know when you end up needing one.

Eau De Toilette- From H&M. This is a perfume roll on which; handy to carry around and convinient to keep dabbing on for a fresh feeling.

Hermes perfume sample- I love the perfume samples – easy to carry around in the purse for any special occassion.

Nivea Lip Balm- Tinted lip balm for subtle look in the day time.

And i carry few accessories like the ring and the earrings to add an informal touch to the day outfit. Small handy pieces come in use often.

 

What do you carry in your make up pouches…i would love to see them.

The moon song

484834_10151756718591887_877974368_n

Beautiful romantic song…..i just cannot put this track off repeat..the lyric is as beautiful…so honestly pure…those simple words has so much depth..here it goes.. i hope you like it too…

 

 

 

 

I’m lying on the moon

My dear, I’ll be there soon
It’s a quiet and starry place
Time’s we’re swallowed up
In space we’re here a million miles away

There’s things I wish I knew
There’s no thing I’d keep from you
It’s a dark and shiny place
But with you my dear
I’m safe and we’re a million miles away

We’re lying on the moon
It’s a perfect afternoon

Your shadow follows me all day
Making sure that I’m
Okay and we’re a million miles away
