What Makes You Beautiful


Does title remind me something? Oh yes it did!

Recently while talking to my friend, she revealed me that she is going to meet her boyfriend and wants to make this meet ‘special’. Personally, I never had a relationship but I don’t know how but I am quite good at ‘Romantic Counseling’. With a confident smirk plastered in my face and straightened myself, ready to give her another round of Romantic Counseling when she asked me “Suggest me a dress that will make me look more pretty”.


I was dumbstruck. I never ever thought an intelligent woman like her will ever think that its a dress that makes everyone pretty. As her best friend, I decided to knock some sense in her otherwise active brain. Since the Cannes Festival was the latest thing I can think of, I asked her to choose “Best Dressed Celebrity” according to her. My friend chose Aishwarya Rai Bachchan


Now I asked her to just imagine this same gown hanging by just a hanger. Will it still look as pretty as it is looking right now on Aishwarya. And the flushed look on my friend’s face indicated that she has realized her mistake. But before she starts the “Sorry Drama” I decided to share my handy fashion and style tips:-

  1. Experimenting: I may have no idea how I became a good romantic counselor but I know how I know how I became the fashion and style expert of my college 😉 Though let me reveal this to you: The journey was not at all easy. I, a mere human girl have also made fashion blunders that left many with lol or rofl. But as I mentioned in my last post, I learned from my mistakes! I insist everyone should experiment with their looks not for others but for Yourself. Always try something new and different. It may or may not impress others, but it feels SO GOOD! Its like you’re pampering yourself, knowing yourself. Its an amazing feeling which I don’t know how to verbalize!


2. Your comfort zone: Yeah, I told you to experiment. But being comfortable is also a very important priority. Make sure whenever you wear anything it should not be too tight or too loose. Make sure that you are comfortable with the items that you choose to wear because when you feel great, you look great! It even boosts your confidence. When you feel uncomfortable in your clothes, it shows. No matter how beautiful your dress is if you are uneasy in it, you will not feel glamorous. You will look worried too. And remember, you will not have fun if you keep on thinking that there is something wrong with how you look.

3. Do what you love: Don’t be blinded by brands.One of the things that I dislike about my brother is his obsession with Brands. He only buys branded clothes as he believes branded things have quality which I don’t believe entirely. Yes, I do appreciate brands but I will buy and wear whatever I love. They may not be necessarily part of popular brands as well as expensive but they make me feel amazing.
4. Last but not the least, it all depends upon YOU: At last, what matters is how YOU carry your outfit i.e your confidence, boldness, fearlessness and love for yourself! Remember, no clothes, no make up, no hair style will make you beautiful until and unless you feel it… Inside ❤
Now as a way to know how much my friend understood my tips, I will be taking her for shopping and she will select her clothes herself while I myself buy some clothes. I don’t have anything to wear, Duh! Take care everyone, catch you next sunday! Don’t forget to like, comment and share!

What is Failure?


It was a cool Saturday morning. I was sipping my green tea and quite lost in my lovely thoughts until unwillingly rescued to the present by the unpleasant voice of Mr Dyeria asking “Hello! How you doing?”. With a fake smile plastered in my face I was dying to reply “Hey, I was doing just fine before I met you” but ended up saying “Great! What about you?”. He sighed and replied that he is very sad, something I didn’t believe until he revealed the real reason. JohnDiz, His son, failed an admission exam of a well reputed college. He has just failed one exam and already tagged as a ‘Failure’ by his relatives and even his parents. With a deep conversation with him, I realized depth of his fear for failure.

After the conversation, when i got back into the room, I recalled that they are not the only people who fret failure. I remembered the time when I was in same situation as JohnDiz and suddenly every stranger in the street was concerned about my future and giving their precious advice like “Study Harder! Stop watching T.V! Don’t waste your time listening music! Forget to sleep, keep studying day and night! Eat almonds two times a day! Don’t eat junk food! etc“. I was living model of Failure. People pointed at me and warned their children (sometimes in front of me) that if they didn’t study, they  will become a failure, like me. With all the grace and courage I had, I accepted their judgements. Best of all, I have parents who were disappointed but never stopped believing in me and always there as my strength. And from that day, still now conquering through this journey. I realize how important it is to make everyone realize that Failure is not something avoidable but something everyone will face. So hereby I dedicate my first blog for everyone who like JohnDiz are/were/will be victimized as “Failure” at some point of life (You have my sincere empathy) or like Mr. Dyeria tag others as “Failure” (You all have my deepest sympathies) explaining its importance.

1. Failure is temporary, giving up is permanent:  For everyone’s disbelief, when I got admission, my failure was not a matter of concern from everyone. I am not that role model anymore, nobody wasted their time anymore, advising me what should I do to improve my score. So why I am telling you this? To point the fact that just because you failed in your first attempt doesn’t stop you from giving it another try! But at the same time, when we give up on a task, we ourselves are shutting any chances of success and thus it will remain forever as a memento of our failure.

2. Failure brings you closer to success: “Failure is a step closer to success” I never understood what it meant until I experienced it. A failure or a series of Failure like Edison’s 10,000 attempts to create a light bulb, teaches us something and in that learning take us one step closer to success. So if you want success, you HAVE TO embrace failure with same interest.


3. Failure is Lesson: Failure is fretted so much because it puts us in a uncomfortable situation and showing us something that we don’t want to see- Our FAULTS. It teaches us how to deal with an unfavorable outcome, provides us a chance to know what went wrong subsequently erasing our fear to fail. Hence, it gives us the rewards of courage, experience and positive mindset. Your efforts are not getting wasted!

4. Last but not the least, you’re not a failure as long as you believe in yourself: When I had my encounter with failure, I thought I lost everything but somewhere in my heart I believed that I will get over it. So there will be times when your neighbor, relatives, siblings, parents or even me (I won’t, Duh!) calling you failure it shouldn’t matter. What matters is what do you think about yourself. Its your choice whether want to learn from your mistakes and embrace success or give up and later regret.

Now again mustering all the courage I have, I am going to explain all this to Mr Dyeria. Yeah so have your deepest empathy and sympathies for me and don’t forget to share your thoughts! Catch you soon. Until then, take care Cuppycakes!
