Screw Ups..!!

2013 is going to end soon so I thought why not to have a quick recap of this year. I thought of making a list of all things good but then devil in my head popped an idea ::


And then I realized that’s a great idea.
So here we go 

Screw up-1 ::
Picked up a wrong project and wait for it I knew it beforehand that it was a living hell.
And that’s how I started 2013.

Screw up-2 :: 
Didn’t take an exam. This is not even the funny part, the funny thing is “ I will be taking it this year”. Good going you jerk, you wasted one year.

Screw up-3 ::
Stayed in shit knowing that how shitty it is. Yes, I am talking about IT industry. I know IT is cool but its not for me. For me office is death and ironically I die every-day.

Screw up-4 ::
Didn’t learn anything new. Nothing.. zero.. I didn’t learn any new language or skill or developed a hobby. It looks like I slept whole 2013.

Screw up -5 ::
Didn’t go any place at all. Forget about travelling to any place new didn't even visited old places.
Went home just one time. Can you beat that??

Screw up-6 ::
Didn't save money. Survived from paycheck to paycheck. And thats why didn't travelled.

Screw up-7 :: 
Didn’t read any books or novels. It looks like I have either slept this year or wasted my time on pinterest and youtube.

Screw up-8 ::
As far as I remember I didn’t do anything out of my comfort zone.  I didn’t challenge myself in anyway. No wild memories.

Screw up- 9::
Ignored my health and that includes skincare also but somehow i hoarded alot of makeup and skincare stuff.

Screw up -10 :: 
Did a lot of shopping but I shopped for trends not for style. So to sum up all I did was wasted money on clothes on things that looked good on models or some other girls.

Screw up -11 :: 
Didn’t eat fruits a lot. Ohk let me be honest I ate hardly 10-12 meals of fruits.

Screw up-12 ::
Planned a lot but didn’t execute any.

Screw up-13 :: 
Settled for less.We all know we are capable to do great things but we constantly undermine our potential by thinking so little of us and by comparing our life to others.I went through this phase and that took every bit of confidence from me. I stopped taking care of how I looked. I am not the prettiest girl in the world but I know I am pretty in my own way. But in the mid of this year I completely gave up on me and that’s when I fell to my lowest.

Now that I have made this list I am very sure what I will never do in 2014. In order to avoid a failure you have to face it. I know this list makes me look like a “LOSER” but trust me I am not one because I have strength to face it.

2014 I am waiting for you and to all the adventures that comes with you.

Please share your major screw ups with me and what do you think about my screw ups. I know they are a lot but next year will be less. Stay tuned for the next list.

Happy CHRISTMAS and may Santa bring you all the joy and happiness in the world in a Louis Vuitton bag.

Put a Bow on it..!!

Heyloo everyone..

I am back on my blog. My exams went okay and thanks alot for your wishes. I have couple of exams left for January. I was bored with my studies and I wanted to do something I love. SO here I am talking to you guys.

Lets do this..
I am a big "BUN PERSON". Ask my friends, family or anyone who is around me they will tell you how BUN-girl I am. I wear buns to everywhere. The thing is I am a carefree person and whenever I keep my hair down I have high chances of tripping over something. Its true and it has happened to me so many times so I am constantly finding new ways to make my updos look better and different.

Here are some of my favorite ideas ::

I recently saw "THE CARRIE DIARIES" and in one episode Carrie was wearing a bun and at the back of her head she had neon bobby pins stacked parallel to one other. That looked so amazing. It was like a little surprise at the end.
(I looked for a similar picture every where but couldn't find one)  I hope you will understand what I am talking about.

Second one is "BOWs" 

We all loves bows. So why not to put a bow on the back or side of your bun to make it look edgy and chic.
Here are some instances
Third one is "RIBBONS"

As its festival season season so ribbons are everywhere.Why not knot one ribbon along with the twist or over the bun or braid in with the bun.

Here are some ways to do that::

I have tried all of these and they all looked amazing. I will share with you guys how to make "Hair Bows" without spending any money in my coming posts.
I hope you will try these simple yet wearable styles. 
Please take pictures and share with me on twitter @s2s2213. 
Hope I give you some ideas and let me know what you think of this post.

Exam Update..!!

Hey everyone.

I am so sorry for being MIA. I have an entrance exam on 6th Dec and 15th Dec so I am preparing for it.
I hope you all are awesome. I have so much to tell you guys and so much to share but you and I both will have to wait for awhile. I will try to post something in between but if I am not able to do that then please forgive me because these exams are kind of my life right now. If you follow me on Pinterest you can judge that from the pins I am pinning.

I have to stop myself right now because I was on 10 min break. I also want to thank everyone who has followed me and has left wonderful comments. I will reply and follow everyone after my exams. Please forgive me.

I need your wishes and luck for my exams.

Stay in touch and I will talk to you soon..!!

Let’s make a statement..!!

We love making a statement and why we wouldn’t we when the statement is so pretty and have sparkles in it. 

Just by adding a statement piece we can transform our outfit.

Here is how you can do it:

  • It can make a plain tee look more dressed up.

  • Add it to a monochrome look and make it stand out.
You can easily add pop of color to your monochrome outfit with a statement necklace. It can be done either by adding slight color in form of threaded necklaces or by adding a chunky necklace.

  • Because it gives you another reason to wear your favorite sweater.

  • To make your graphic tee even better.

  • To make your Tee shirt more versatile.

  • Just to add sparkle to your 9 to 5 attire.

  • Add it to a chambray shirt or jacket to make it feminine or to make it soft.

  • Wear it backwards to flaunt that sexy back you have got.

  • Because sometimes it is all about going big.
I hope you enjoyed this post and hopefully I have given some of you some ideas..!!

Its my Birthday..!!

Guess what… “We turned ONE”

Exactly one year ago this was all a dream that I used to think about a lot. I remember the times when I contemplating about the blog, its name, its niche and all those things.

So one night I came up with the name and I started my blog and wrote my first post.

When I read my very first comment I was so overwhelmed that I couldn’t even explain my feelings right now. I am writing this post because I want you guys to know how much you all mean to me. Everytime I get any comment or I get a new friend I feel like I am the queen of the world. But it is all your support that has kept me going. I shared my feelings with you. I asked your opinions and you all guys have given me the best advice that anyone can ask for.

I love each and every one of you and I pray you all get the best of the world.
Please don’t leave me alone and I promise you I will never let you down.
I will provide you best of the content that I could and I promise you will enjoy your relationship with “Softwares to Stilettoes” . I am always there for you and remember I am just a mail or a comment away from you.

Thanks again for all of your support.
My journey with you have been amazing and I am already counting days for my next birthday..

To the Underdogs..!!

Hey everyone...!!

Right now I am at airport going home ...yehiiee I am super excited..and I had this post idea that I need to post right away..
So please ignore my bad editing and to everyone who just followed me I am so grateful and I am also very sorry not to reply to your comments. I have read every comment and i will reply and follow you back as soon as I settle down at home...

So enjoyy...

You know that movie in which underdog got the girl or that movie in which underdog got super power or that movie in which underdog won millions or that movie in which underdog was a spy or a billionare.. Glad you ask which movie..??? Every movie...

Yes people generally under rate somethings but you know what they are not that easy.
In this post I will be talking about the underdogs of fashion that looks so much easy to look but execution is tough.Here is my list of under-rated things in fashion.

Plain White Tee Shirt and Blue jeans look :: 

Oh yeah, "I said it". I have heard people saying thats the easiest look one can pull... ah huh.. nope.. Thats not you know why its not easy because you need to have a perfect white shirt and trust me thats not easy to find. With that you need your hair to look amazing and we all know how easy that is. I know if executed properly you can look like an off-duty model but if done wrong you can look like a patient and how i know that becuase I look like latter most of the times.

Messy Bun ::

How tough that can be to execute as it has word messy in it. haha.. Let me break a bubble for you it ain't easy. I know we all love it but it takes more than 5 minutes to make it. It requires alot of work.. teasing your hair... sparying..dry shampoo or what not..
Messy bun can be so chic but it can also make you look like a crazy person or rather a lazy person.

Top Knots/Sock buns ::

I have read it so many places that it is 2-step process.. Make a high ponytail and wrap your ponytail all around it and there you go.. haha ha.. rather than there you go it should be try again you look like a bimbo..Please let me know how many of us are able to do it in under 5 minutes.. I take 15 odd minutes to make one. and trust me doughnuts doesn't help either.
Now sock buns... I have cut so many socks of mine and i earned nothing.. So i thought may be girls socks are not good enough so I cut my boyfriend's sock and what do i get ...NO BUN.

Bedhead hair::

How easy does that sound. you just got up and you will have your perfect bedhair... Not so easy my friend. I know when I wake up I have crazy hair not sexy hair.
To get this hair you need bzillion sprays and tools to get that. If I will have to do so much things then i would rather sleep awhile and have roam around as crazy hair.

No makeup look ::

Well that takes alot of makeup to look natural.I don't know how much effort it takes but I have heard my friends talk about it. So not an easy nut to crack.

Winged eyeliner ::

I read a tutorial about it and that said just make a flick to side of your eye and fill it. I did that and guess what I look like a nuerotic person. Definately not an easy task to do.

Don't touch your face ::

Really??? I have a desk job or even if you don't have a desk job or you are watching movies .. bammm your hand is on your face.
Not easy to control.

Drink alot of water ::

I think it is for me only. I drink then I pee. I spend good 9-12 hours in office and my desk and washroom are on extreme ends. I can't afford to get up from my seat that often.SO not easy for me.

Putting on weight ::

I have personal experience in this case. People tell me to eat but beepti baapti boom nothing happens. Its not easy to eat all the time. It may be easier to give advice but execution is freakishly tough.

I hope you all liked this post and please let me know that I am not the only one who thinks that above mentioned things are not easy.
Please let me know what things you find tough which everyone else says "Oh its so easy and you go, "Blah blah.. "
Please let me know if you enjoy this post in the comments section...

"Chai with The Creation of Beauty is Art..!! "

Ooops I did it again.. I have been MIA for awhile but I have exams coming up so with juggling work with studies I am left with a little time..

But now I am here so tell me how have you guys been??

I have a very interesting person that I want you guys to meet.

Drum roll please...Shannon from The Creation of Beauty is Art .

She is amazing and her blog is fantastic.She writes so well. I am such a big fan of hers.I love her choice of words and how well she portrays everything. So without boring you all with my jibber jabber I present to you

             "The Creation of Beauty is Art"

S2S :: Please tell me something about yourself and about your blog “The Creation of Beauty is Art"?

Shannon :: My name is Shannon and I love to write. I started my blog “The Creation of Beauty is Art.” a couple of years ago, after I graduated from University. I was finding it difficult to get work in my field and I really felt like I needed a creative outlet. So, I started blogging about what I love most: makeup, fashion, and beauty. So far, blogging has been a really wonderful and fulfilling experience – and I am so glad that I get to do it!
S2S ::  What gave you inspiration to start a blog??

Shannon :: I had started watching YouTube videos of different makeup artists and beauty gurus. As time went on, I started thinking: I wish I could do that! I felt like I had things to say about products I’d tried and makeup looks that inspired me…but I didn’t want to be on camera! Blogging just felt like the natural next step.
S2S :: I agree being on camera can be scary. Hats off to all those you do it.
I visit your blog regularly and the title of the posts always amazes me. Please tell me your secret behind it, if so please reveal a little. What inspires you the most?

Shannon :: Quotes never fail to inspire me. Whether they are quotes I’ve found online, in a book, a song, or whether I’ve written them myself, I love how one line can really sum up different life experiences and make you think. I am probably inspired most by the books I read. There’s nothing like a great story to make you reflect on your own life.
S2S :: You might think I am crazy but I can spend my whole day reading the quotes on pinterest or anywhere else.You did a post some days back about the books and how they are important. I loved that post. Please tell me which is your all time favourite book?

Shannon :: I’m glad you liked it! My all-time favourite book is either “I Think I Love You” by Allison Pearson or “Princess In Love” by Meg Cabot. Both are very different books, but each of the main characters really connected with me.

S2S :: I haven't read Princess In Love but tittle is so nice that I want to read it.
NYFW just went so what trend are you digging right now? 

Shannon :: For fall trends, I am totally in love with faux-leather and leather details. I think it can look so chic to have leather sleeves, pockets, or a skirt. There is nothing better for fall, in my opinion! As for the spring fashion week trends? I am all about animal prints. You can never go wrong with them, as far as I’m concerned! 
S2S:: So what are your wardrobe staples? And what is your favourite item?

Shannon :: My wardrobe staples are dresses with cute prints, shirts with Peter Pan collars, and comfy band t-shirts. My favourite item is probably my David Bowie shirt – it’s loose, comfy, and has a great print on it. I love that it can be dressed up or dressed down.
S2S ::  If you could buy anything from any store in the world what 5 things would you buy?

Shannon :: Oh gosh, that’s a tough one! Probably a Chanel bag, Chanel earrings, a dress from Dior, Louboutin shoes and….a pink filing cabinet!

S2S ::  What are your favourite stores and what is your favourite trend right now?

Shannon :: My favourite stores are Forever 21, H&M, Zara and HR2. My favourite trend right now is probably fall florals. I am addicted to floral print, so I’m excited to wear it in new ways during the fall season.
S2S ::  What is the best advice you have ever received?

Shannon :: It sounds cheesy, but probably to not give up. Reaching your goals isn’t always easy. In fact, it’s usually really, really hard. But to do something great and make yourself proud, you need to work hard for as long as it takes. I truly believe that determination and perseverance lead to success.
S2S ::  Which make up product do you love and which one you think have received unnecessary hype?

Shannon :: I am a makeup addict, so there are a lot of products that I love. Some of my favourite products are probably the Urban Decay Naked Palette, Benefit’s They’re Real! Mascara and Rimmel’s Clean Finish Foundation. Products that I think have received unnecessary hype are actually a lot of MAC products - especially their eyeliners. It’s not that they’re bad, but there are brands out there that I prefer. I know a lot of bloggers lust for MAC products, but they’re not my go-to.

S2S :: I am lusting over Urban Decay's Naked Pallete right now but I am also MAC addict. (guilty)
 What is your go to look? 

Shannon :: My go to look is some super smokey eye makeup, a cute blouse and a pair of dark skinny jeans.
S2S :: Smokey eyes are amazing but I always mess them up..
Which 80s trend do you want to make a comeback and which current trend do you want to omit?

Shannon :: The 80s were so fun and daring, which I love. My favourite 80s trend would probably be denim jackets and vests. I love that they’re make a comeback in the last few years! A current trend that I want to omit is probably purple lipstick. I think it can look fantastic in photographs, but in real life, it doesn’t always work.

S2S ::  I know its cliche but I have to know.  Who is your style icon and why?

Shannon :: Of course, it’s got to be Audrey Hepburn! She absolutely epitomizes grace, style, and classic elegance. I am such a fan of her work and her style. If only I could be that glamorous in my own life.

S2S :: Things that you can’t live without.

Shannon :: My family, my boyfriend, my laptop and my makeup!
 S2S ::  What would you do if you can be invisible for one day?

Shannon :: I would probably just people watch. There’s something really interesting about watching life go on around you and just observing. If I didn’t do that, I would probably just dance around like a fool!
S2S ::   Your dream destination and your guilty pleasure.

Shannon :: My dream destination is London, England. It is my absolute favourite place in the world. I’ve been able to visit there several times and I miss it so much! I would love to travel there by myself and really experience the city. My guilty pleasure is probably the song “Beauty and a Beat” by Justin Bieber. It’s so good that I can’t stop listening to it. 

S2S :: One song that you can’t get out of your head.

Shannon :: At the moment, it’s “Work B**ch” by Britney Spears. I am such a huge fan of hers and that song is so catchy and fun!

S2S :: This song is very catchy.. :) 
What advice would you like to give your teen age self?
Shannon :: Stop worrying about everything you’re missing out on. When I was growing up, I felt like I was missing out on those normal teenaged experiences (dating, parties, prom, etc). When I think back to myself as a teenager, I know that I wasn’t ready for those experiences. Now I’m grateful that I grew up spending time with my family and friends./

S2S ::  Now let me be little selfish and just ask you something that concerns me. What does a reader want to read when they browse through a blog.

Shannon :: I think that really depends. The most important thing, I think, is to make your posts personal. That stands out to readers more than generic information that they can read anywhere. So, if you’re talking about makeup, include your own opinions about it. If you’re showing your outfit, explain what it means to you and where you wore it. I also think it’s important to have a little variety. Instead of posting about the same thing every single day – mix it up!

S2S ::   Any words of wisdom to a very blogger?

Shannon :: My advice would be to love what you do. When you love what you’re writing about and blogging about, the rest comes a lot easier. Get out there, read other blogs, look for inspiration, and do whatever you can to make each post a reflection of you.

I am very thankful to Shannon for giving me her precious time. 

It is true we both live in different continents but thats the good thing about blogging community that you can meet and make friends all across the world and it also gives an opportunity to meet such wonderful and talented people.
Please visit her blog and I can assure you will go there again and again and again..!!

I have been loving these two songs alot and I know they are not new but I am listening to these two alot.

Drunk by Ed Sheeran ::  OMG I can go on and on when it comes to this song.

On the right side of the wrong bed,
And never an excuse I made up,
Tell you the truth I hate,
What didn't kill me, it never made me stronger at all "

I just love this song. If you haven't heard of it listen it here..

Loving you tonight by Andrew Allen :: I came across this song through some video.That had it in the back ground and I googled it and found it finally..

And I'll say hey,
You'll say baby, Hows your day

But its all gonna be alright,
You'll kiss my smile,
I'll pull you closer,
Spend awhile just gettin' to know ya,
But its all gonna be alright,
Loving you tonight,

And how can I forget our very own Cara Delevingne song. Listen to it.. Loved this one.. <3

Now Food Love::

They are just chocolate balls but what I love about them is that they come with a LOVE Message.  and everytime I open one piece to eat and when I read the message I feel so good..

I love their marketing startegy they have opted to lure the buyers and it is working on me.

Blackberry Ice tea

You know what.. ITS OKAY..!!

This is a letter that I would like my future self to give to me right now because I need to know its all okay there...

Here it goes....

2013 Me,

You are not okay but you are more than okay.

I know you are lost right now but its going to be fine. You will survive the mess. And I know you might be thinking how do I know? SO silly, let me tell you I am here in 2020 and trust you me; you are AWESOME. I know right now you are feeling what the shit I am doing and why am I doing this? Why can't I just take a leap of faith...? Why can't I just have that courage to make that decision that I know will help me. ???

But you know why you are not able to take it because IT IS NOT EASY. People may think it is easy to do so but its not. Leaving a promising place is terrifying and when you are thinking of taking a decision like that you got to think..I know you loved Steve Jobs speech at Harvard and how he said if you don't like anything then change it. But No offence to Mr. Jobs but I don't have multi-billion empire with me so I need to think before making that change.

I know you spend alot of time wondering about being ambitious and how scared you are of being over ambitious. But you know what ITS OKAY.. You have to have a reason to get up. You have to have something to look forward. Let me tell you in 2020 when you will be sitting in your office you will thank 2013 yourself that she had dreams.I have teleported myself to tell you that ITS OKAY not TO BE CONTENT.

I know you are having a bad phases and I am not here to tell you that you are wrong. But I am going to tell you that you are right that you are in a bad state. But you know what you will rise after that.  I know it sounds poetic but its your smartness that has made 2020 me where I am proud to be.

Everyone says do what you love to do but I am here to tell you that sometimes you have to do something that you don't like.. SO suck it up because you know it better how much you need to do what you are doing right now... For financial fucking independence... (aaargghhh)... to pay the rent...and for so many other things..

So let me quote one of your favorite lines from our favorite movie.. "TO THE JOBS THAT PAY THE RENT"...and fyi that is still one of your favorites(even in 2020 ;) ).

I know you think don't fit in here but trust me you are not meant to fit in here... Because believe you me "YOU FIT PERFECTLY WHERE YOU WILL BE IN 2020" so just enjoy the mayhem until it clears off the air. I know how you hate the judging eyes of people when you do something you love. Lets take a small instance :: Remember the day you paired red flats with black and white outfit..in their boring grey-black-grey world ... the way they look make you bash them or give them a piece of you but trust me you won't do that because you are bigger than that...and moreover HR policies.. :X
But Listen to me... Don't bother as Coco said......

I know you are doubting your abilities but there is no need to worry. I am sure you are worried about the time but you know what its the effort that matter not the time. So GET UP And KICK some Ass.

I also know you are worried what other people think of you but you know who cares what the crippty crap they think of you or awesome things they say about you. They are PEOPLE so get over that.

You have wonderful friends you love you for what you are and they never judge you and you know what till 2020 they will never judge you.

I know its hard but you gotta do what is right.

SO here is my piece of advice to you because I know the FUTURE.. Just bell the CAT and go to your favorite B-School.. BE what you wanna be.. (because in 2020 you are that) and I know only 1and half month is there but if earth can revolve around its axis in 24 hours,so why can't you give it all what you got and be where you have to be or where you fit in.

And I know you have said it in your near future that you hoping to say now...

So just to end this letter "Always remember, ITS OKAY that you are not feeling okay right now..Because one day you will be better than OKAY"

2020 Better you..!! (wink wink)

**** This is a very personal post to me****
I am going through shit right now and I was writing it in a journal but then I think what if someone else is feeling exactly like me.. SO I thought of putting it here and sharing with you because you guys are my second family.I hope no one of you out there is feeling like I am feeling these days but if this helps then I am glad to help.

Room Madeover..!!

Hello Everyone..

Sorry for being MIA.. The thing is I was down with fever. The fever is all gone now but I still sound like a dude.. I am sneezing and I have cutesy red nose.. I hope it goes away soon..But enough about my well being.. Lets get back to post..

Well I kind of shifted my place.. So I got some better storage place and I was looking for some easy DIYs for organizing and decorating my room.

I am sharing some of my favorites with you..

1)Magazine Pile :: This is my favorite lets be all honest we all LOVE FASHION... so it is true that we will have heaps of magazines lying in our place. well i don't want to get rid of my magazines.. Even though I have some cut outs from magazines but still I treasure them.

So here is one idea that will solve our problem and will make your room look much more creative.

Stack up all your magazines one over other and tie them with colorful ribbons and you can keep your candles over it or flower vase.

2) Laundry Bag :: Well that was actually a call of emergency but it worked out so well.

All you need is an old pillow cover and embroidery rings.

Put the rings over the top corner of the pillow cover and hang it on the back of the bathroom door.

3)My very own Pinterest Board :: I am a kind of person who believes in "out of sight and out of mind".So I made my very own.  I had a big carton box ... I covered it a scarf and put some of my favorite quotes and other favorite things on it.

Mine is ready but I didn't have nails to hang it up. I will post mine when I it is hung.
Till then you can watch the one that inspired me.

4)Mini organiser :: Don't you hate when those little things (that we need ) roll here and there on our desk.
Here is one of the trick that will make your life easier.

All these DIYs have one thing common that you can do these right now without running to store.
Please let me know what do you think about the post. I will be sharing my room pictures very soon.

Please let me know what is your favorite DIY to decorate room.
Please suggest me what should I do to make my room more edgy and fun..!!
Let me know in your comments.

Get Inspired..!!

My Uncle ain't "Uncle Scrooge..."!!

Heyloo everyone..!!

How have you been?
You might have guessed it that I am talking Money this time.. Yes That I don't have right now.. :|

Well lets be honest we are not filthy rich.. hmmm only 10% of the world's population is.. (see I am talking numbers.. ).. and neither do I have any uncle like Scroocge who dives in his gold..Sad isn’t it????

Anyhow that means we can’t spend without thinking. This is coming from a girl who goes broke the next day she receives her salary… (Guilty.. :P )

Have you guys watched Uncle Scrooge ..He saved single penny of his gold and cherished it..

I have been working for 2 years and believe you me my savings are zero.. (sob sob) I think of saving every month but as soon as I get my paycheck savings are out of window and Hello shopping…!!!

Trust me I shop a lot and I shop rubbish..
I buy things and never wear them.. and blah blah… but I am not talking shopping.. (SO closing ASOS page.. BBye J CREW.. :( All tabs closed.. sighhhhh)

So this time I am committing to saving as I am doing for other things.. (Quick Update :: I have been going  to YOGA for 2 weeks now.. yippee..and I feel good)

So I was googling ways to save..then I came across a “52 day saving challenge” in pinterest.

Well that challenge was not fit for me so I modified it..

"This is what I will do.. "

First of all I will take 50 DAY challenge

I will put Rs 50 (I am talking in my country's currency, you can choose yours) in a jar every night .. sounds plausible.. putting 50 in a jar doesn't sound harsh.. and if you count after 50 days you will have Rs 2500/-

Easy isn't it.. and best part is that you can buy or shop or party like you used to do..!!

You can also motivate yourself to save by adding a prize after completing the challenge.I know the end result is not big.. But you have to start somewhere..
You can increase the value if you want to but I am going to stick with 50 for 50 days..:)

I have started saving for I-PAD.. I hope I will save enough till the end of this year..:) 

SO LETS start..!!
I have put in today's 50.. 

 So who is with me to take this challenge…
Please reply in comment who is participating and how much money will they put in the money jar..and we will count together..

I will give update on the challenge every we and I also want you guys to give me your update.
Well this is fun and is not hard on our shopping.

I hope you guys are with me on this.. I wish you like this kind of post.
Please let me know your money saving methods in the comments.

Stay in touch..!!
Save Money..!! (wink)

“Chai with Worry About It Later”..!!

 Ladies and Gentleman… Here I present to you another one of “Chai with Worry About It Later”    

                    I would like all of you to meet one of my very favorite blogger…
                     “Worry About It Later”

You can tell how amazing her blog would be by the name of the blog only… This blog is written by a wonderful girl, BIANCA. She pours down the magic of her words and her imagination in her blog. Bianca has a great sense of style and she surely does know how to “DRESS to IMPRESS.” The pieces she can pull together are impeccable and the way she pulls it off is even more amazing. 

So without any delay… I present to you Bianca from WORRY ABOUT IT LATER

S2S: Please tell me something about yourself and about your fantastic blog “Worry About It Later”?

Bianca: Well hello first and thank you for interviewing me hereJ! My name is Bianca, I’m 26 years old, I live in Vienna (Austria) and started my blog almost a year ago – last year in October.

S2S: Worry About It Later” that is an unusual name ... how did you come up with this name?

Bianca: I wanted to start a blog pretty much earlier than I actually did because I was thinking about a name all the time. Last year I was in Ibiza with my bf and at the port I saw a yacht with the name “why worry” and I was so in love with the name so I modified it a bit and “worry about it later” was the result. It reflects a bit my attitude to life because often we tend to worry about things which are absolutely not important and make our life not easier thereby so I somehow thought myself over the past few yes not to worry about everything. And it should also reflect that fashion is a really passion but it should also not be taken too serious

S2S: Oh… That is so amazing.. So, what gave you inspiration to start a blog?

Bianca: I first started a blog in 2006 at university but it was just a group project. I always wanted to write a blog since then but didn’t find a subject that was really me. And about 4 years back I found a fashionblog and knew this could be a topic for me too.

S2S: That is so true, you have to write about what we love .I adore your style. Some mornings I browse through your blog just to get inspiration on what to wear. How do you mix and match and basically how do you manage to combine pieces so well? I mean I have so many bad dress up days... Any tips to an amateur? (People take out your pens and make notes.)

Bianca: Thanks a lot, that’s so sweet!! Mostly I already think about what I will be wearing when I go to bed because I’m not really a morning person and so it makes it much easier for me in the morning haha. But if I don’t find anything that I like, I wear a black top and black skinny jeans (or shorts, as it is summer right now) and add some silver jewellery. This will always work for me. And as I have a quite big collection of black tops, I think I will never be running out of them ;)

S2S: That’s a handy tip… I will try to decide my outfit in night. What are your wardrobe staples?

Bianca: Black jeans, black oversized tops and a black leather jacket 

S2S: I couldn’t agree more black is such a versatile color. If someone is on budget and someone is trying to build a workable wardrobe what pieces do you suggest?

Bianca: This depends very much on one’s personal style. As I am a black lover, I started to buy some black tops at the Zara sale (good time for it again) and found some amazing pieces for about 10€. Investing in a good leather jacket (not poly) is also a good to start with because it works with pretty much everything. I still have my first one which I bought some years ago. I always try to remind myself to the question “would I wear this more than once?” I hardly ever buy anything I know I would wear only once.

 S2S: I love Zara’s crazy sale and best part is it is still going on.. You know Bianca, you have inspired me so much that I am going to Zara to buy black top J . Accessorizing can make or break an outfit. As you accessorize so well please tell me what points one should consider while choosing accessories.

Bianca: Most of my accessories are silver jewellery and scarfs if it is colder. I own quite some scarfs which I love to combine with black outfits in fall and winter. Regarding jewellery: I buy practically no jewellery at h&m or shops like that because the rings always make my skin black and I tend to not like them at all after wearing them 2 times. So I stocked up on silver rings and some bangles and necklaces - bought nearly everywhere. I always love to buy jewellery when on holiday – this way it is souvenir and accessorie at once
S2S: I agree because the jewellery from big stores ends up on every ones wardrobe. I love your idea of collecting accessories as souvenir.
Continuing the theme of last question... What is your favourite accessory?

Bianca: Some great silver rings J

S2S: What is your favorite outfit??

Bianca: As already mentioned above I guess it is an all black outfit.haha

S2S: I should have guessed that.. stupid me.. J Who takes your photographs as all of them are so amazing?

Bianca: Nearly all of them are by my amazing friend HDB. She invests much of her time in my pics which I’m very thankful for. But also my mum, my bf and another great friend. The ones of my nails I always take myself.

S2S: I must say all of them are so talented. J What is in your go to makeup bag??

Bianca: Mostly I don’t carry one with me J but if, then there’s a concealer, mascara and a lipstick in it. I’m not that much of a makeup girl.

 S2S: If you could buy anything from any store in the world what 5 things would you buy?

Bianca: Huh, that’s a tough question. I would definitely buy a Chanel boy bag (big love) and then I guess it would be Alexander Wang shoes and bags.

S2S: What are your favorite stores and what is your favorite trend right now?

Bianca: Most of my clothes I buy at Zara and H&M but also ASOS and & otherstories are great.
 All white is quite good right now as is still is summer here.

S2S: I am so in love with all white look.. :) What is the best advice you have ever received?
Bianca: J
ust do it

S2S: Short and effective. J Let go to history…Shall we?? Which 80s trend do you want to make a comeback and which current trend do you want to omit?

Bianca: I
don’t know if I need the 80s to come back fashion wise and I don’t really like cropped tops that much. I don’t like wedge sneakers that much and don’t own a pair. Good when the trend is over again ;)
S2S: Who is your style icon and why?

Bianca: Blog wise I guess it is Sandra from 5indandup but also Carrie from sex and the city and also the Olsen Twins.
S2S: I love Sandra and what can I say about the Olsens, they are amazing. Your dream destination and your guilty pleasure.

Bianca: New York! Want to go there for so long. But in general I want to travel the world and see every country. It is only a matter of time (….and money…)

S2S: Damn you money why do you always come in between K  New York…What won’t I give to live there… (sighhhh) Let’s talk TV which one you like Gossip Girls or FRIENDS or something else?

Bianca: Sex and the city

S2S: What advice would you like to give your teen age self?

Bianca: Don’t worry too much and stay true to yourself.

S2S: Now let me be little selfish and talk about me.. (wink wink ) What is your advice to Softwares to Stilettos to improve the blog and what do you want to see more there?

Bianca: I always love that your posts are so well researched and one can see that you invest quite some time in your blog – so please just go on J

 S2S: That is so sweet of you.. :) 

I am so grateful to Bianca for giving me her precious time.
It is true we both live miles apart but I am very thankful to blogging community who has given me an opportunity to meet such wonderful and talented people. (If I ever get lucky enough to visit Vienna I will know who to contact..)
