Our wardrobes are filled with clothes and yet we don’t have anything to wear. Are you tired with making implusive purchases and later regretting it ? Here are few simple steps you can follow to detox your wardrobe.
1. Ask WHY before HOW
Before learning How to detox, contemplate why do you want to detox your wardrobe. The reason can be simple : you may want to let go of your past, bad memory or just that those clothes that doesn’t fit your lifestyle anymore.
2. Prepare your Mind
Once you know the reason why you want to detox your wardrobe you can move onto the next improtant step which is HOW to do it. It isn’t going to be easy but makeup your mind. Before you let go, you need to loosen the grip.
3. Declutter
This is one of the important step and I would suggest you to do it in one go. So, once you’ve made up your mind sit down infront of your wardrobe and empty it. Now, segregate the clothes that you don’t wear anymore. Remove the clothes that doesn’t undersized or are oversized. Stick with the clothes that fit you and match with what you are today and not something which is a depection of you 5 years back.
I agree that clothes have an emotional value attached to it but you need to let go of certain things in order to make room to live more.
4. Stick to classics
The best way to detox your wardrobe and never cluttering it again is to make your wardrobe evergreen by adding classics such as basic, bold and solid colours. Include pieces which goes with everything in your wardrobe. The classic hoops, black denims, white shirt, well fitted tailored blazers, LBD, nude pumps are some of the examples.
Your dressing style speaks alot about your personality so add pieces to your wardrobe that speaks about the kind of person you are in the present. Learn to live in the moment and stop cluttering things for the future which you might never use.
5. Trick to Detox
If you are not sure that whether you will wear certain clothes in future or not. I have a little trick for you. Put those clothes in a box and keep them aside. If you don’t use any clothes from that stack within a month then probably you are never going to use it.
6. Donate
You might have a pile of clothes with you which you will never wear but there are people out there who don’t have a single piece of clothing to cover their body so might as well Donate what you don’t need. Help others. And soon you will realise that: The things that truly brings us joy aren’t things afterall.

Email

Ahead of the official launch rumors and leaks already revealed a lot about the fourth generation Mi Band and the successor to the last year’s Mi Band 3. The Mi Band 4 is smarter, much stylish than predecessors’ smart bands from Xiaomi and despite all the advancements it comes at a much affordable price. For now, Mi Band 4 has been launched in China for starting price of RMB 169, which roughly translates to Rs 1700. The Mi Band 4 comes in several funky and cool colors. As the rumors suggested the outer look of the Mi Band 4 appears almost like the Mi Band 3. The Mi Band 4 comes with a rubber band like the Mi Band 3 but includes much bigger and also colored OLED display. This is for the first time that Xiaomi has used colored display in a Mi Band. There are slight changes within the Mi Band four style in comparison to the Mi Band three just like the charging pins sit on all-time low rather than prime. Overall, particularly in terms of fitness options, the Mi Band 4 is a much-upgraded version of the Mi Band 3. The Mi Band 4 comes with a 0.95-inch AMOLED color touch-enabled screen that offers resolution of 240 x 120p. The screen of the Mi Band four is protected with a layer of two.5D curved glass on top. The screen of the Mi Band 4 is capable of showing several kinds of notifications like SMSs, WhatsApp messages, fitness details, among other things. Similar to the Mi Band three, the new Mi Band 4 also comes with heart rate sensor and several tracking features, but this time they are way more improved. The Mi Band four comes with many fitness options like step enumeration, sleep monitoring, among other things. Similar to the Mi Band 3 the Mi Band 4 is also capable of detecting several activities like running, jogging, cycling, among others. The Mi Band 4 comes packed with an upgraded six-axis sensor which detects different swimming activities such as Freestyle, Backstroke, Butterfly stroke, and Medley. Xiaomi has launched NFC version of Mi Band 4 and a non-NFC version of the smart band. The NFC model of the Mi Band lets users make mobile payments.
Water resistant: This feature comes from Mi Band 3 to Mi Band 4. The fourth generation Mi Band comes with 5ATM rating for water resistance. This suggests the Mi Band 4 can sustain water droplets and splashes but this doesn’t mean the band can survive if dipped in a bucket of water for a long time.
Battery: Xiaomi claims the Mi Band 4 can deliver 20 days battery life on a single charge.
Overall, the Mi Band 4 seems like a great upgraded over the Mi Band 3 in terms of both design and features and this makes it worth the wait. Xiaomi India hasn’t revealed any details about the India launch of the Mi Band 4 but going by the last one year we expect Mi Band 4 to hit the Indian market soon, possibly in a month or so.

Play with your own colors

Play with your own colors

Email

People always gain opportunities and success in their respective field. One always wants to move forward within the colors of what he likes. Once they start doing what they want, that task might be hard but they enjoy and are proud of what they are doing and living for, irrespective of hardship and money they earn.
This is same as what respective people say ‘Deepika Padukone would not be this famous actress if her father had forced her to only be an athlete, neither there would be Sachin Tendulkar if his parents have forced him to study hard and become either an engineer or a doctor only.
Whenever a director directs any of his/her movies, the treat it as if that is their last movie to direct.
Even there can be just one movie a director directs; they want to direct it in their own color irrespective of movie resulting in a blockbuster or a flop.
So, live your life, be happy and do what you want to, achieve what you want to, pursue what you want to.
Play your colors so that later there would not be any regret of not able to do what you want to. Most importantly- love yourself

The Fad Of The Bad

Email

Now stop for a minute and imagine.
Imagine that you have the perfect figure. You are  kind of perfect. It can refer to Kim’s butt or Ryan Gosling’s all time built . Whatever is your fantasizing spree’s theme…..
Now stop.
Take a turn.
Imagine going to the most famous club in your town with your pals And not requiring an ID. You can order whatever drinks you want and there is a whole club cheering for you because you won a beer chugging competition thrice in a row. You’re dizzy and nauseous but you go for another jug because this is the time of your life and you only live once… .
Now stop.
Change the slide once again
Imagine being in a car , driving with your friends all night long. Talking about how you have not yet prepared for the exam that is due tomorrow because you’re the master of procrastination. Imagine yourself spending the whole night with them and not going to bed until 3 and at the end just “embracing the mess you are”…

Now stop for real. Don’t skip to another plot. Just do one thing for the finale.

Delete all the people excluding yourself out of these scenarios.
And ask yourself –
Would you really want a six pack ab or a zero figure if there was no one to compliment you ? If you were to get no likes or comments or appreciation on Facebook or Instagram for it…
Would you forcefully chug another whole pint of liquor down your throat if there was no sound of cheering in the club but just the sound of silence while you sit with yourself all alone.
And finally ask yourself if you would ever brag about going to sleep at 5 in the morning or having insomnia if others didn’t think it was cool or if terms such as the “ night owl “ or “sleep is for the weak “ were not popular.
Trust me , if you honestly introspect , the answer would be a no. ln all these situations you are minutely or intensely hurting yourself unconsciously and the only thing that is encouraging you to do so is “people will like me” . This is because most of the trends or the fads that are so popular have to do with “impressing “ others. They’re about showing off , about being encouraged to take the easier way to feel validated .
Have you ever heard a friend boasting about waking up on time for a week straight or eating a proper diet or doing “pranayama” everyday ?
I haven’t
Because it is hard. It’s hard to actually clean the mess rather than embracing it…
It’s hard to understand that validation from others would never help you to be more content until and unless you stop hurting your mind, your body or your soul to attain it.
So if the next time you go on to pick up a trend that is not necessarily healthy for you but will definitely make you seem “ cool” to the others. Ask yourself just one simple question..
How will romanticizing dysfunctionality help me ?
And the retaliation would be of one simple answer
It won’t .

Flawsome!

Flawsome!

Email

Your freckled face. Your plumpy nose. Your blemishes,your pencil thin legs, your big feet. Your stretch marks. Your cellulites. We all have them i.e flaws. or shoild I say “flawsome”. What exactly is a flawsome? It defines an individual who embraces their flaws and knows they are awesome regardless. We all see them as a damage just ike an abnormality, trying to secrete behind them, concealing them over with makeup and high collars. We do criticise them, wishing they would go away, believing that if we didn’t have them anymore, we’d be flawless, and then we could be elated. But what really flaws are? An easy response to that is, anything that is different from other’s perspective is a flaw to you. But that’s not how it is. We all are living in a world where we care what others think about us and have completely forgotten, how to love ourselves. We all see models possibly everywhere. Why don’t we see normal people showcasing or advertising anything? Because it has been accepted since ages that only a beautiful face and beautiful body can sell products but not the normal people? Then in this case who do we call abnormal. We all get attracted towards pretty models and their so called perfect bodies. But who really models are? They are nothing but more than impaired humans experiencing evolution for a magazine to make you believe there’s some merits of beauty but trust me, they have flaws, too. You all must be wondering that how am I aware of it? Because it’s the flaws that make you so pretty and the most prominent ones always have something which makes them look different. What society considers is delightful characteristics and remarkable highlights are simply imperfections that models chose not to cover up, or all the more vitally, what some picture taker really comprehended as the most excellent piece of them and savored it. Those famous models are prominent for an objective, and I know that not because I follow them but I still know their names because they have done possibly something really remarkable. I remember them because I see that charm In the bizarre displays of photos upon photos thrown into the masses. I can see what the photographer who took a risk on them saw: their flaws and how they made them wonderful. It’s the moment that we stop obstructing behind our flaws, wrapping our joy in them, expecting that if we didn’t have them that would improve us and make us look more quintessential. If you didn’t have those imperfections, who would you be. Only an artificially glamourised show who isn’t even genuine. A hoax person with nothing interesting, nothing endearing, nothing that’s just you. Your imperfections are your identity, and the more you conceal them away, the more you shroud yourself against the world. Your blemishes are what makes you the individual youare. The sooner you begin understanding that your blemishes are what makes you wonderful, the sooner we can quit calling them imperfections. Life isn’t great. It never has been and it never will be. In any case it can be an uplifting news. It implies we can stop chasing the mystical, consummate life. It means we can stop tracing idol skin, an idol job, an idol house, or an idol spouse. It implies we can discover flexibility to live inside our blemishes. Even though if we girls wants to contour our cheeks or if we want to conceal our dark circles there’s nothing wrong in that.
Ever felt like something just doesn’t belong? The world can occasionally make us feel out of place in our own lives, but sometimes being the odd one out brings more joy than you may think. We aren’t doing it for anyone but for ourselves. Much the same as garments, cosmetics enables us to outwardly express our identity and temperaments. Cosmetics has the ability to change a face, and let the entire world know your identity. How stunning is that! There’s no supernatural lipstick that can instantly turn you from an uncertain young lady into a confident lady. Its your own positivie thinking and persective which will embrace you to be a better being.
