Scars To Your Beautiful

While I love my Chanel perfume as much as the next girl, I think nothing beats the smell of a freshly baked sweet dish, specially one that has vanilla essence. When I took out the tray of bread and banana pudding today, the house was filled with a mirth that one could touch in the... Continue Reading →

Innocent

Number 4 on my list of things I don't like are these people who meet you after a long period of time and they spend the first ten minutes telling you everything that's wrong with your body or your appearance. I mean, if I want to know all my appearance flaws, I'll just go to... Continue Reading →

Something Like This

This morning I woke up and recalled the dream I had. I was in a foreign land. The runway met the city without any barriers. I walked out of the plane and into the (clean) streets. I stayed in a house from where I could see the square which had a large fountain in the... Continue Reading →

I don't know what tipped the cauldron, but I think that Ae Dil Hai... Continue Reading →

When Rockstar's album came out, I fell headlong in love. There was no recovering from it. All of it was like a story knitted together in perfection - the music, the lyrics, the singers - it was exactly how magic is meant to be. Those days were the times of CDs and I had its... Continue Reading →

The Rain Must Fall

*Technically, this post is about yesterday* This morning I told someone I had a feeling today would be an extraordinary day.
