MY PERIODS:- Blessing or a curse

Girls…..

…… and boys !

Let’s talk about periods today.

Yes , you heard it right PERIODS the most beautiful natural phenomenon amongst women, it indicates that our body is functioning properly in a healthy way , a mark of your femininity and fertility , then why not embrace its beauty ?

Are we still hesitant about discussing about it in public or with male members of our family?

Do we still consider menstruation as a big taboo in our society?

Is it just India or all over the world ?

I have a group of people working individually in my team and when I discussed with them individually about this topic , asking them to have a concept shoot expressing our individual thoughts about Periods ,

For some obvious reasons, nobody refused to work on this topic but they were hesitant to take it forward due to which it got delayed.

I tried talking to some random people about it as a part of survey and i realised most of them were not comfortable, expressing it through some weird expressions that they gave me at the start of our conversation as soon as they heard the word PERIODS.

Few months back while i was traveling, a girl from US approached me and asked “ Do you talk about periods with your dad in India ? And does he gets you pads when you require? “ I said “ Ofcourse yes , why not “

But deep inside i knew in most of the parts of India , periods is still a big taboo . Period shaming is common not

only in our country, India . But also all across the world .

Myths about mensturation has always been a part of society and not just India . Every country has it’s own society misconceptions about Periods .

Some may hide sanitary napkins in secret places and get embarrassed when it falls out of our bags accidentally , as if it’s a secret weapon.

Some people believe Periods is unholy and dirty , and it’s a curse to enter a religious place while on periods or avoid entering kitchen when on periods.

We all need to understand that menstruation doesn’t cause temples to collapse or food to rot .

Well , if god disapproves this fluid then he should disapprove of all body fluids .

It’s time when we take a logical step forward and understand its just a biological function which in fact enables us to give birth to specimens like us .

Boys and girls do we still consider it sort of unclean ?

Having sex on your periods ?

There are countless religious and cultural taboos that forbid intercourse during that time of the month and you’ll have to make up your own mind about exactly how you feel about those. But there are also some pretty silly misconception and myths about period sex, especially among guys, that need to be cleared up.

Periods are usually associated with disgust, shame and embarrassment and this needs to END .

We need to be more transparent about our body and stop living in the fear of being shamed .

AND

This needs to start from the roots i.e our Homes by start having open and honest conversation with our family and friends .

THERE WILL BE BLOOD

GET OVER IT

Hola ,

I am back with something exciting this time , I have seen people struggling to find clothes that looks expensive at low budget .

However, we cannot buy super expensive clothes every time , but we can still make our cheap clothes look expensive with some tricks .

I have researched a lot and concluded 4-5 things which can actually make your attire look exclusive, these tips have been concluded through various real life surveys.

Read below to know more :-

ACCESSORIES WITH EXPENSIVE ITEMS

Investing a bit on your accessories is actually worth every penny. It can make your ₹1000 clothes looks like ₹15000-₹20000.

Surprised ? Yes! It’s true, as according to the psychology accessorise are always a focus of attention and when you mix expensive bags and jewellery with cheap looks . It eventually makes them look expensive as nobody can differentiate.

TIP 1 :- Don’t over accessorise, keep it simple

TIP 2 :- You can customise your basic accessories to make it look expensive

GET IT ALTERED/ CUSTOMISE IT ACCORDING TO YOUR FITTING

What makes cheap clothes cheap ?

It’s basically that they aren’t able to get the right fit according to different body type.

We can only see a perfect fit in designer collections which is the result of their past studies .

Why don’t we invest a little bit on tailoring and get the right fit we want . It can actually make your outfit look 10 times more expensive than the original price .

TIP :- Replace cheap buttons, these small details can instantly make your outfit look elegant .

MAKEUP

Sometimes people wonder that how can makeup outshine your clothes ? Yes it does !

Whenever you are trying to make your outfit look more precious and rich , the best kind of makeup is by having entire neutral makeup but with a bold red lipstick.

Red has always been a royal colour and it helps your outfit look expensive.

IRON PROPERLY/ BUY A STEAMER

Crease , wrinkles or untidy gathers can make any fabric look cheap . You need to check if it’s ironed properly or a simpler option is to buy a steamer which is very easy to use and give better results .

But please don’t neglect , as it can actually make your entire look cheap .

TIP :- Choose your fabric wisely while shopping from local stores , you can also mix it with luxe fabrics.

SHOES

Invest in a pair of shoes you can always wear to liven up your outfit. I would recommend you for high heels when your body is covered preferably when you are wearing pants or jeans as it’s a very strong look and doesn’t make you look like as if you are trying very hard to look stylish .

TIP :- Invest on black or nudes .

I hope this information will be helpful.

PORTA GENOVA :- ( RADICAL CHIC )

While Porta Genova is one of the most old-fashioned districts in Milan, and it is strongly connected to the tradition. It is also extremely popular with the Milanese youth, both for the night-life (especially along the banks of the Naviglio) and its anti-comformist atmosphere. This reflects, for example, in the almost ubiquitous street artworks, the numerous” alternative” shops, as well as the peculiar character of the main street market of the area, the Fiera di Senigallia, which is renowned as one of the best places in Milan where to look for unusual, rare and bizarre merchandise.

MY BODY MY IMAGE :- BIKINI TRENDS

Bikinis have always been my favourite and have seen alot of women being confused how to get their bikini wardrobe ready . In this blog i am going to discuss the ways to change our buying habits; to buy less, choose better bikini options and pay more for items we will keep for longer.

Pairing up two different bikinis is always a good option when you want to keep less and simple works longer .
Taking the initiative, alot of swimwear brands such as Davy J has created a ‘waste collection’ that uses 100% regenerated nylon.
Lingerie brand La Fille d’O designs with the ethos “to make things better” and to last.

I believe body positivity and comfort is the major aspect when we go and buy a bikini .

Let me give you a brief about some styles that can never be out fashion and always look elegant and trendy with a little customisation time to time .

  • Looking back to look forward inspires Basic stripes from 1970s direction for swimwear. A palette of natural earthy tones is key for this look.

As we all know Crochet styles will remain prominent in festival collections for the fashion market. We can play with basic twist and folds such as ruching which are leading the market since 90s.
Knots, twists and crossovers inspired by perfect imperfections are flattering and feminine, while also being softly supportive.

The best part about this type of swimwear collection is that it fits all body types and is comfortable . Furthermore as we are discussing about long lasting designs , these designs have a good market in luxury as well as premium market since 1970s and has always been trendy and elegant .

we can always explore different market and pair up bikinis which gives us more suitable options in our wardrobe .

Smart wardrobe is a key , it always reduce our cost and brings out a fashion image to ourselves .

TIP :- having pop up styles can reduce our chances to repeat a certain style so keep and in mind when you shop your bikini collection next time .

Thankyou for your love and support i hopeyou have enjoyed reading it and it was helpful.
