As we draw towards the last week of the year, I can’t help but look back at how the last one has gone and the only word that comes into my head is this-‘wow’.
A year can change so much and yet so little. People come and go, circumstances change. You yourself change. And yet, the constants remain. And it’s those constants I’m thankful for today. The people, who don’t give up on you no matter what, pulling along with you through the thick and thin. The ones on which you can rely on not to change. The ones on whom you rely on not to let you change for the worse. I’m immensely thankful for them, every day, every hour.
And yet, I’m just as much thankful to those who have been the variables. The coming-ins and the going-outs are not just entertaining but it’s more interesting how meeting and knowing them or saying the goodbyes can impact you. Change you.
I have always been told that fate brings in people as it sees necessary for you and takes others away when their work in your life you is done. And looking back I realise the truth in those words.
I stand here today, a stronger, wiser and more independent version of myself compared to last year, due to these people and I can’t but thank them for that.
So, to the constants and the variables, thank you-for helping me grow as a person and to making my life so much more intriguing.
And for those reading this-the constants, the variables, the new comers-here is one new year resolution I’m letting you in on-I will be blogging much more this year and all of the content will leave you nothing short of excited.
So, stick around-let’s touch each other’s lives and help change them for the better.
I love winters. What’s better than cozying up in front of the fireplace with your family? Maybe a walk around your favorite haunts with some coffee and your loved ones. Oh or maybe freshly roasted marshmallows. Or sharing stories around a bon-fire.
Ugh. It’s a tough one. But here are five of the fashion industry’s favorite must haves for the upcoming cold months which I’m sure you would love to have in your wardrobe just as much as we all do.
1. Faux fur:-
Absolutely anything in it-from gilets to scarves to fur lined hoodies-is in one word, “in”. So if it’s a dinner out with your gal pals or a brunch with family, finish off your look with something faux fur and you will surely end in the best-dressed lists. Just, don’t over-do it. One fur piece? Perfect. Anything more? Disaster.
The dark rich color, not the drink. From lip colors to shoes, from bags to pull overs, the color is having its day in all these areas and more, and every fashionista is running to join it for the party. I personally love the color so I took the opportunity to get it in any thing I could find the exact shade. But at least one piece in your wardrobe saluting the color is a must for this winter.
3. Organza jackets:-
They are for sure having a moment in the local fashion scene even if internationally the bloggers haven’t tried it out yet. So, this one is for all my Pakistani girls. If you want to stand out as the “one always on point on the latest trends”, grab a jacket from our local designers(like Elan etc). Or get one stitched. It’s fun and hip either ways. And honestly? The material itself makes the jacket extremely versatile so if it’s a dinner meeting, a breakfast, an office party or a Christmas fiesta-it’s perfect for all those occasions and more.
4. Dark lips:-
Wine is not the only dark shade the beauty trend-setters are loving. Thanks to a certain Kylie, all dark lip colors (especially the shades of brown) are gracing most main stream bloggers’ insta. Besides who doesn’t love a dark lippy in the winters? I say lets go get some more!
5. Long long jackets:-
No. Not knee-length long. I mean the ankle grazing ones. They are both chic and comfortable. And keep you all nice and warm. So ditch the “blanket coats” and reach for these much more versatile form of clothing which works as well with your Sunday jeans as with your party dresses. Yay. In short? It’s an investment piece. So don’t shy away from the high priced ones, your daughter will thank you for that one day. Honestly. (Thank you mom! 😜)
