Nothing's gonna change my world

I've had these images compiled into a draft and lying here for over month. With a severe case of writer's block, I couldn't find the right words to accompany this set of images. It sounds strange. "What's there to write about? Just look pretty in images and tell us where your jacket is from" says the imaginary voice in my head. But somehow, it just seems not enough. Fashion blogging has taken a toll and shifted drastically over the last two years. I've seen previously helpful bloggers go from "there's a secret sale every Saturday" to "this is the only makeup brand you need to use" when a week later they promote the rival brand. It's true what they say, money talks. This wasn't supposed to be another rant. But it really baffles me. What to people want to read about? Do you only care about which brands spend more money on marketing so that everyone promotes them or do you want real honest opinions? I've always been opinionated and very vocal about my choices. The things I wear are highly influenced by my state of mind or in simpler words, what I'm currently listening to. And that's why most of my posts are named after song titles or recurring lyrics that speak to me. And this is why I'll always continue to disclose promoted and sponsored content, as I have in the past with complete transparency. I have to say, I truly miss the good old days where I would spend hours researching and trying out a trend for myself and then presenting it my my blog instead of having a PR agency have it delivered into my inbox on an almost daily basis. And I can tell a lot of my peers miss the same.

It's been a rough few months, full of ups and downs. I've been MIA from posting here, and it almost broke me because not being able to create my own content and work on posts is just too painful to bear! The reason I was unable to post is because I sold myself to a web series; where I was one of the costume stylists. I mean the idea of shooting in Goa is always amazing and I've done that before. It's always been an amazing scene and I've met nice people and had a nice time. But this was not like those times. This was probably the worst decision I've ever made!

What's fun about launching into a brand new year is starting all over. That's where all the resolutions come in. To lose weight and to eat healthier and whatever else. I've been down that road several times myself. And we all know that no one really keeps or follows through with their resolutions, some of them don't even make it till Feb! My resolutions for the last few years have always been fashion related. There was one year when I decided to stop wearing heels and wedges on a daily basis because lets face it, I'm no Victoria Beckham and a few ankle twists later, I was done. There was another year when I decided to omit black from my wardrobe. Not entirely, but more like start wearing other bright colours. And once I decided to kick my shopping habit and stop picking up new things will I worked. This was the toughest since the life of a stylist is blesssed/cursed with too many shopping and sourcing trips and it's really hard to resist temptation, especially when the sales are on. But I still pulled through.

KATCH me if you can!

The lead up to this post has been one of the most exciting ones. I mean how do you test/review a speaker? You use it!! While I prefer my earphones as I like shutting out the world, I save those for my commute. The Dali KATCH couldn't have come to me at a better time. November has been the busiest month of 2016. From EDC to a destination Goan wedding, a week long vacation and a fashion show in Delhi, everything has been a little too crazily paced and hectic. And it was obviously the best time to test my new gadget. Read along and see where I took my KATCH and why it's the best speaker ever.
