Finding A Tribe Where I Belong? #FriendshipDayScenes


When I fluffed out my wings, to undertake the journey of blogging, I knew it’s not going to be a cakewalk. Infact, nothing can truly be accomplished in a matter of seconds, hours or months. Each mountain takes years and years of toil to attain its identity; otherwise its nothing but mere sand and stones. My initial years of blogging was done completely under isolation. I had no social media accounts back then and my blog originated only with the objective of catering me a platform wherein I can pour out my heart without being restrained under the clutches of that which is considered “USUAL”.

Had we all been identical to each other, the world would have been a boring place. And I believe, the term "different" or “weird” is overtly exploited by the so called “sane” human species. Who are we to judge the other? If we’ve been INTENTIONALLY made the way we are, who are those people who want to change us and claim it as their inherent right? As ifbthey’ve been endowed with the burden of changing the world? 🙄

I choose to give power to my words and it’s my will to remain quiet. Amidst a group of people, I tend take over the third person perspective and observe keenly. For me, things are pretty much sorted because being a writer, I speculate faster than my voice can assist me during a verbal communication.

#FriendshipDayScenes

With the start of the blogging journey, it felt as if another dimension to this world has been left open exclusively for me. I interacted with various strangers who pinged me with their mails or left me comments on my blog posts. During this exploration, I also met people who’ve been a part of my life till date. Yes, I’m referring to friends who were also bloggers. Ironically, while the real world frowned or questioned the aspects of blogging, I made friends over the internet who were undergoing the same stares and cold behaviour from people who were near or around us on an everyday basis. I remember how I had to cut down on my after class roaming hours hours with friends because I had to go home in order to curate more content for my blog. Sadly, people know you write blogs but they forget that blogging takes efforts as well. Ultimately, a lot of the people take it as if we've been born with a arrogant nature. 

So what if they think it that way, it makes zero impact upon me. I don’t need to go validate my actions in front of everyone. 🕊️ #PeaceWithin

Happy Times 😄

During post graduation, I became friends with Swati from Curious and Confused Me. Distant in terms of the city we reside, yet we formed a close bond over emails and WhatsApp. Yes, it actually started off with the old-school form communications, a.k.a. emails. I remember how in between different classes I’d find a vacant spot in my college campus and we texted about lunches and stares from people around. P.s. girl if you’re reading this, I kinda miss those days. 🤗

As years passed by, I became socially active (only on social media applications because I’m still a socially awkward person) and I found numerous friends from every part of the nation as well as the world. In fact, now when I go to bloggers event, I realise “oh she’s here; it’s our time to bond over a real space”. Sometimes, in the first meet, all I manage to say is “Hey..How have you been?” or maybe “It feels good to see you”. And it accompanies a warm hug. I genuinely feel that but #IntrovertProblems take over and I can’t talk much. I think MsMeehnia knows it a little better. 😂

Anyways, few days ago, I decided to chill out with some of my lovely co-bloggers: Niharika, Nimisha and Vishakha. It was kinda like a girl’s day out wherein we roamed around the streets of Cannaught Place (Delhi), had a good time eating at Ministry of Beer cafe and chatted till hours’ non-stop! We had good food and good time in each other’s presence. Moreover, we got some amazing clicks of us together. Also, we did an elaborate skincare talk while hovering in the Body Shop store.

Selfie Queens in here!! 😋

After days like these, I feel I know there’s this one particular tribe wherein I don’t need to explain majority of my actions. And even though every industry has its beauty and flaws, I can still call it my TRIBE... A place where I truly belong.

Lastly, thanks a lot to each one of you who has made this journey worth travelling. Be it the co-bloggers, active readers who drop their lovely comments/emails or silent readers; because each of your efforts genuinely counts. 

If you’ve never left a comment before, consider this as an opportunity to make me know about your presence by just leaving a heart emoji below! This would mean a lot for me.

So, what are your plans on this friendship day?
Ours was definitely filled with a lot of craziness as well as randomness.

Wish you all a very happy friendship’s day!!

  4. Such a lovely post! Yes, it is difficult to explain a blogger's life to others. Many of them ask me what I do with so many beauty products, that am harming my skin with all these. My only source of inspiration is other beauty bloggers like you :) Happy friendship day dear :)

MamaEarth: Shampoo + Conditioner Review | Happy Heads & No More Tangles

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
We all love our tresses! In order to sustain a healthy crown of hair, we keep on hunting for homemade DIY recipes or a shampoo that resolves the prolonged hair fall problem. Is it merely me who has been seeing a lot of hair fall since a year or two? I’ve altered my shampoo to figure out what is the actual cause for the same and it appears as if the inherent genes and my eating pattern is what causes a lot of shedding of hair. Recently, I tried the Mamaearth’s shampoo and conditioner duo which I believe was the part of their Anti-Hair Fall kit which is priced at INR 999. The kit intrigued me a lot and I’m glad I got to try out two products from that kit so that I don’t end up spending a thousand bucks. If you’re wondering how these products fared for me, stay tuned and keep on reading!

Jeju Volcanic Lava Self-Heating Clay Mask - Review

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

Apparently, there are lots on skincare brands which are available internationally and I’m yet to try them out. Some of these brands, enclosed within my wish list include The Body Shop, The Faces Shop, Clinique, etc. Thankfully, Nykaa was running an offer on The Faces Shop skincare range wherein you could grab a full-sized freebie product. While I was surfing the catalogue, I encountered the “self-heating” mask which kept me intrigued enough to add it to my cart. I kid you not, there have been times when I’ve legit done window shopping online as well! 😃😄 I see trillion of things and later I’m like – “Do I really need this?”
And the mind always answers – “Of course not, girl!” 😂
A lot of the times, I force myself to hear the sensible talk of my mind. But sometimes, the heart takes over and it springs in joy to say “Woah! That’s too pristine to be denied”. This is exactly how I ended up purchasing Jeju Volcanic Lava Self-Heating Clay Mask
So…

Fab Bag August 2018 "Own the Glam" Unboxing & Review

Surprise is the greatest gift which life can grant us.
Do you like surprises? I bet, you can’t say no to that.
Surprises are one of those quickest means of breaking the monotonous patterns of our lives. When I come back home from work, finding a courier onto my bedside table is what pumps up my excitement level. And this is exactly what happened on the evening of 31st of July. I kinda had a hunch that I’d receive my fab bag earlier this month, but getting it before the month actually starts, feels amazing! So without more jibber-jabber, let’s begin with the Fab BagAugust 2018unboxing.

Theme of the Month: Own the Glam When I think of the phrase “own the glam”, my mind draws an imagery of a glamorous girl. Therefore, I interlinked the theme with my expectations of having makeup products.
The Process of Product Selection: As expected, we have one of star products from the brand Sugar Cosmetics! 😍😍
Few days ago, I was sent a product selection email from the team of Fab Bag. Therein, a tota…
