but, it’s not too hard?

Nice

[nahys]

1. Pleasing; agreeable ; delightful

2. Not that fucking hard to be

Everyday we’re exposed to hate & negativity, impacting our daily lives & most importantly how we treat others. In spite of all this negativity , we have no idea what others are dealing with in their personal lives, so it’s plain and simple:

be nice.

 

It costs $0.00 to me a nice person & I assure you, you will not regret being a nice person. Some might say being nice is a sign of weakness  & to an extent that is true – there is a such thing as being too nice. However, a little act of kindness can go a long way. People will forget what you said, what you did, but will never forget how you made them feel. A small act of kindness can turn anybody’s storm into a rainbow.

 

Here are a few things you can do to practice kindness:

 

1. Be kinder to yourself: When you practice self love, your kindness will flood the world surrounding you.

2. Focus: Train your mind to see the good in everything & everyone. Happiness is a choice. YOUR choice.

3. Be quiet: If you have nothing nice to say, don’t speak.

4. Don’t expect a return gift: If you expect something in return for being nice person, then you aren’t a nice person.

 

Just remember, you are never too important to be a nice person.

But, should I?

 

YES.

Leave that shitty job. Dump your freeloading boyfriend. Book that holiday. Eat carbs. Workout. Get a tattoo. Wear that dress. Read a book.

There’s no right time to do anything. If you want to do something, you should. The repercussions could go wrong but what is important is what you learn from the outcome.

But, what else do you have to offer?

2k17.

In the amidst of new jobs, old flames, bigger goals & many useless boys, I sometimes find myself questioning my recent blog shoot. If you’ve been following my Instagram or blog, you may have seen my experimental side awaken.

It’s not that I care if people can see a bit of nipple through my kurta but it’s the fact that people judge my character based on the clothes I wear. I like wearing shorts, crop tops, thigh high boots & dresses which show a decent amount of side boob, but that does not mean I’m ‘easy’, ‘cheap’ or a ‘slut’.

People are not what they seem based on the clothes they wear, there’s much more to someone than meets the eye. A women’s body is not a way to determine her character, but a way of expressing herself & her many forms.

But I have to ask, will this change?

But, are legs the new cleavage?

The pelvage trend was once a craze, forwarded by influencers & models who don’t stand at a comfy 5″3 & also have no qualms in accidental flashing.

My formula:

Thigh-high splits & a touch of quirk.

Keep it simple & be confident.

And, when it comes to the old age trend of “dressing for your body type,”

I give zero fucks.

Thanks, I’ll take two

If history has taught us anything it is that the two piece trend is a wardrobe must have. Flashback to Fran Fine rocking a floral Jennifer Bawden outfit paired with her killer abs! I may not have the abs but I do love a cheeky two piece. Being on the shorter side, I did find it hard to find a skirt + crop combo that didn’t reach my ankles. This Ref piece was a steal, plus sustainable to the environment.

Australian summers = riots of colour !

What better way to celebrate summer (besides the delish mangoes and  the incalculable litres of ice cream I have consumed) is with this Pia Pauro dress.

Incorporating Indian heritage and textiles with a modern – chic twist, is a convergence of eastern elements and modern twists. The mirror work on this mini isn’t the only highlight – bursts of neon thread work throughout the dress creates for a fresh feel adding for some spunk!

They key is to keep it simple and let the dress be the focus. Wearing the dress with nude accessories and a blue bindi adds that extra chutzpah!
