5 Golden Rules of Happiness

DSC_0250 (2)

1 Travel often to find the facets of life that invigorate you.

Once a year go to a place you have never been before. Travelling is addictive and teaches you a lot about yourself. New places, new faces, new situation will definitely teach you something new.

2  You are your own best friend and worst enemy. 

Don’t be too hard on yourself. We all have bad days and failure and regrets. You are not alone.

Bad things happen, life does not go as you plan it, people die, friends become strangers but through it all you always have yourself.

If you don’t care for yourself then who will?. Value yourself for who you are before expecting others to value you. Make your own rules for success.

3 Unravel your passions, interests, and hobbies.

Writing and blogging is my passion what is your? I can’t live without books and coffee either. Do something that make you happy everyday, don’t let go of your passion and hobbies.

4  Take the time to care for yourself. 

Take care of yourself, before you take care of others. In our busy lives we often forget to take care of our-self. Schedule me time daily if possible and take time to go over your needs in respect to health, relationships, career goals, life in general .

5 Help others do the same to improve their lives! Pay it forward and multiply the happiness.

This is something I have experienced in my college life. This is amazing and very fulfilling, rising up together is better than rising up alone.

Society ,family and parents prompts us to compare and be better than others. They tell us to rise above other but not how to rise with other.

Helping others improve their life will improve you ten fold and teach you a lot.

Rule #1: Life begins at the end of your comfort Zone and so does your career. 
If you are getting to comfortable then sure it time for a change, time to switch things up.
Don’t confuse feeling good vibe with feeling comfortable.If it doesn’t feel good, you probably should not go for it. 
 
 
Rule #2:Work hard party harder.
Take breaks to clear out your mind. Working long hours, overtime with no breaks with leaves you in rut.Get outside, take a walk it will clear your mind and help you think better.
 
Rule #3: Earn every reward
Reward yourself for reaching goals. Set weekly or monthly goals and rewards for completing them. 
Rule #4: Evolve daily  
 Shake thing up to keep them interesting. Keep yourself motivated and inspired. 
Re-brand and reinvent yourself.
 
 
Rule #5: Write it down.

This rule is bit hard to follow.Having no backup plan for your career is scary. But knowing that this is it, that you have to make it work, will definitely prompt you to put you 100% into the current plan. 

 

 
 Rule #8: Work for free

Collaborate for free, intern part time to get to know the industry better.

FRENCH STYLE

There is something about french style that say it is timeless, simple, effortless and chic. Laid back yet classic a contradiction in itself but we love it anyway. The 5 piece french  wardrobe is inspired by french style, and minimalism. 

Minimalism seem to a resounding theme of classic french style.I have always been a jeans and shirt kind of girl, which is a big reason why I am so naturally drawn to these looks.

 

The essentials for a french wardrobe include the basics : Jeans, ballet flats, a white shirt, a black blazer, a black bag and little or no make up.
For Parisians the style mantra is less is more.

The art of french style has minimal wardrobe requirement and it is budget friendly too. Invest in quality rather than quantity. 

From Coco channel, Jane birkin to Brigitte Bardot, these ladies have made the  most casual outfit looks timeless and effotless.

Rock the Choker Trend

 

The trend is highly popular right now, with celebs like Taylor swift and Kendall Jenner sporting the choker to accentuate some of their signature looks.  Popularly considered to be revival of the 90s fashion trend the choker has been conceived long ago.

The origin of the popular choker dates back to thousands of years back to the Sumerian Empire in Mesopotamia and Ancient Egypt. In those days the choker necklaces were considered protective ornaments. They were generally made of gold or lapis and vested with power.

Choker gained popularity during renaissance as a stylish accessory and were coveted among the royals in the late 19th century .During the late 19th century women in part of Germany and Austria used choker to mask lumps on the neck cause by goitre. While in few parts of the world, simple ribbon choker were symbolic of prostitution. The unprecedented notion changed when the choker graced the necks of ballerinas.

It is a trend that has survived the fall of the ancient empires and the evolutionary era of renaissance and surfaced time and again through the 20th century. The choker have evolved from a protective necklaces to stylish pieces, to being used to mask flaws ,  to being the symbol of prostitution in some parts of the world to being called “dog collars” during the 1920s  and 30s.

During 1920s and 30s choker were made of velvet ribbon and pearls with a central decal.

The 1970s rise of hippies’ culture saw the revival of the choker once again. Pop stars like Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera advocated the choker trend through the 90s. This time the choker evolved in to the infamous plastic tattoo choker and simple ribbon chokers.

Today the choker is available is several forms, from simple ribbons to leather neckties to jewel encrusted collars.Big players likes Givenchy and Chloe have been featuring them on the runway and top jewellery designers are releasing new designs frequently.

Suffice to say the choker is a statement piece which will never go unnoticed. The choker draws attention to the neck and quite boldly so. It is undeniable bold and chic.

Rocks the trends like bloggers do.

1 Layer it with other necklaces – Take layering to the next level.

2 Wear it solo – Give the choker the glory it deserves.

3 Tie it like blogger do . 

4 Wear it with a edge. 

I am loving this trend …
