Desi Memsahab

 You keep learning something new about yourself everyday. While I'm trying to outgrow that pixie, I'm learning quite a few things too. How my fashion sense has evolved over the years since I started blogging. But it still doesn't change the basics. I have been a person who believes in minimal effort when it comes to hair. If I don't have to manage my hairstyle too much or spend too long doing my hair, thats the right haircut for me. Growing a pixie or a bob can be tough and so I'm constant playing with my hair to get that right look that I'm most confident in. The look thats absolutely ME! Little did I know that I would achieve that in bed, while I'm dreaming, away from that mirror. The pictures below show the stage and state of my hair that I'm most happy with. Effortless! I literally didn't touch my hair to get that. Straight out of bed. I'm feeling to love this, but the confusion has grown. Whether I actually want to outgrow that? How many women can actually wash their hair in the basin? How many women leave the house without hair sprays, straightening ,hair wax? Sound like a perfect picture.

The love hanger

When everyone is busy getting ready for the Valentines Day, buying gifts for their loved ones and making dinner reservations, I decided to have a quiet Valentines away from my husband doing what I do best. Taking care of the baby and doing fun diys! I came across this cute wall decor on a blog and did a little something for my bedroom for the special day. Its all about feeling the love and being thankful for every special person you have in your life. The idea could spruce up a corner in the house be it your parents' bedroom too.

Things you need 
Scissor, thread/ribbon, pen , cello tape/hotglue gun, colored paper of your choice

Get started
1. Make little hearts on the paper. You could use stencil if you're a beginner.

2. Cut the hearts out and glue/tape them on the ribbon/ thread. I used craft paper that was white on one side, which was a mistake. Its better to used paper thats colored both sides to avoid the white when the hearts swing around.

4. Hang the thread/ribbon on an old hanger.

You could even hang pom poms or little bells for a Christmas Eve. Keep the thread a little longer and hang little buntings to give it your creative touch.
The good thing about this diy is you could hang it anywhere in the house. You don't need a day to show love, express love and fill the air with love.

Make a quick pick for Valentines

It's that time of the year when there is endless love in the air. Everyone is gearing up for special day. Salon appointments, planning vacations, finding the right outfit to look perfect for that someone special. But the celebrations are incomplete without the perfect gift for your valentine The best part about Valentines Day is that it falls in between the sale season, lending us a lot of potential gifting options. As the day comes closer and the search intensifies, one must keep in mind a few necessary things while shopping for a gift that can leave an impression.
- your partner's personal style
- is he/she a gadget freak
- has your friend been looking for a particular piexe for the wardrobe( like those new Nike shoes or that tan bag in Stevve Madden)
-does he/she like to experiment or just stick to the basics.
The key to that thoughtful gift is keeping a close eye and asking a lot of questions to know him/her better. I have been browsing for budget buys on Jabong for a while now as there is also a family wedding coming up.
