To say that I have been blindsided by work this week would be an understatement. There is a lot going on right now – Some of it is very exciting, good and some of it makes me want to crawl under a rock and stay there for a few months. I have just been telling myself that if I can make it through the weekend, everything will be alright. I have got faith.
Sometime later today, I was tempted to Dress New.I took out the brand new perfectly pressed Aeropostale sweater out of the closet. It smelled fresh and crisp. I usually love the fragrance of new clothes, the box that has it folded, its multicolored tag and even the shop that sells it. They all make me feel good and happy. With a self-actualization, I had started finding the perfect pairings to complement my outfit – White Cotton Shirt, Grey Trousers, Few high-inch Stilettos and a White Bag. As I sat on the bed looking at the sweater, I realized that I was in a complete disagreement, asking it, ” Why are you so Red ?” In a dilemma of Wear-Or-Not-To-Wear A RED, I had started wondering…
It was that time of year again. The Dreaded Holiday – That keeps shouting out loud, with all its possible ways and signs which we could not ignore, with its merciful indications, bold colors and challenging us a Dare-To-Wear-Red. A day that all The Single Women everywhere have wished at certain point or another, would fall right off the calendar and stop reminding us of just how single we actually Are!
Hello February. Hello Lovely Month.
GO Away.Hello – You, The Dreaded Valentine’s Day.Yes, February 14th sneaks upon us every year like a bad headache, with its stuffed bears and chocolate hearts. The holiday of love, as it is commonly referred. Yet there is nothing about it that makes us feel the slightest bit of loving. What has a Girl to do with herself on a holiday that is meant for two?
I thought and thought again.. until I knew that there are lots of things which a girl can really do on this day without getting weary. Actually the first thing on your to-do list is to drag yourself out of the blues and get into the Valentine’s Day spirit – Because as the old saying goes, “If you cannot beat them, Join them.” Just because you don’t have a Significant-Someone on a Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate the most significant person in your life – YOU. Yes, you. The Fearless, Fabulous female staring back at you in the mirror. What better excuse than the official “Day Of Love” to treat yourself with – A Little Pampering, a Great Movie, Fine-Dine or a Good Old-fashioned Girls Night Out? After all, if YOU can’t love you, how can you expect anyone else to? If you’re going to be single on the Valentine’s Day, there are a lot of exciting events tailored for You – Here are a few ways you can paint the town Red this Valentine’s Day:

Valentines Day – The Movie
Maybe if you are feeling blue and sinking shallow this Valentine and if that’s really the case – Pick up that phone before you drown deeper and call the girls to watch the movie Valentine’s Day. It has the Oscar red-carpet look, featuring Julia Roberts, her niece Emma Roberts, Jessica Alba, Jessica Bail and Taylor Swift. Totally a Girl Power.
Wherever you find yourself this Valentine’s Day – A Bookstore, A Dance-floor, A Coffee-shop, At Home, In Bed watching romantic-comedies or a horror-thriller, don’t forget to take a moment to celebrate Yourself and Your life. You don’t need anyone to complete you or sweep you off on a white horse or buy you dozens of roses to be happy. Instead of waiting around for one to complete you, why not complete yourself…then just let them be the icing on the cake?
So lets stop wishing away at-least for once in your entire life and embrace the beautiful season that you are In. It will never come again!
