We all know those moments when somebody likes our picture, comments something thoughtful on our posts; It’s just that feeling that someone liked what you did. Someone appreciated and even left a comment on there, spending their time writing it. How much ever we try to hide it – we can feel our heart giving a little ‘bling’ whenever we see someone drop a bunch of likes, don’t we?
In this case – it’s someone purchasing my artwork (Shop link is below). Especially if that person is unknown, seeing my phone whizzing a little with a sudden vibration of a new order coming in with a “cash register” ringtone set.
Fairy lights, buntings, stockings, Christmas trees. I absolutely LOVE Christmas decorating. Bright strokes of red and green paint on projects, hanging ornaments from a real tree. One of the most beautiful things that I’m sure even you agree is Christmasy wreaths hanging from your door, with berries and flowers and what not. It just brings happiness through your door. But it’s just not fun going from shops to shops checking price tags like INR 700 and INR 1000 for one small ring with green stuff sticking out of it. I agree it can be tempting, but..
Coffee has literally taken over the world. It’s the 2nd most consumed food behind oil! Do you like Coffee? Well, this brown-magical-caffiene drink really charms people! And ofcourse, none other than myself. Yup, I absolutely adore coffee. And I mean, ADORE. I bet you didn’t know that! First is obviously the taste, but the aroma – you know you can’t hold back when you whiff that scent as you enter your nearby coffee shop. So guys. You know I had to do a coffee quiz! Coffee is not as bad as you think. Without the sugar put into it because of its bitterness, it’s quite healthy! But.. before we get into it…
Who doesn’t like learning more, and more? Especially when you can with just a click of a button. I personally love taking online quizzes – it’s quite entertaining! I’ve been wanting to do my own quiz for long, and now I did it! We’re never too much to learn about our own culture (and others), so this one is a Goa quiz! (Where I live.) Dive in and participate in my quiz, to check your Goa quotient! I’ll be doing many more – quizzes on coffee, personality quizzes, you can never know too much about.. anything. I’ve put together 11 interesting questions for this one (with results!)
Instagram feeds are a BIG thing these days. And I have to say, I agree – I love instagram accounts with good feeds. Accounts that when you scroll through their pictures, every photo goes together. Every photo compliments each other. But quickly, if you don’t know, what exactly is a “feed”?
Sometimes, even the simplest things have a complicated story behind them.
“I have to take an Instagram picture for today!” I was eyeing around the house, stacking up blue books, taking pictures of a blue drawer, blue DVDs in a cabinet, and… so on. “Nothing seemed to click, yet,” I said to Mamma. Taking Instagram pictures has become part of my day now, and my day seems incomplete without it. I had to take something!
“Let’s do this!”, I said, taking out a piece of watercolor paper from the crinkly packaging. I was writing-painting a quote for an Instagram picture. It was 11 pm. “Pool quotes.. pool quotes..” I searched, browsing pool quote ideas on the internet. “Found it.” I spent the next half-an-hour switching between thick pens, thin pens. When I was finally done, “Now, I’m ready for tomorrow’s picture”, I thought, putting the cap back on the pen.
As we scroll down Instagram, we see some beautifully styled pictures – pictures that look like you just had to put up 1 -2 elements to take it – pictures that seem easy to style – pictures that you think were taken in a very calm environment (haha!) – but have we thought that the process/behind the scenes of those pictures.. aka reality, may be different?
There are zillions of people on Instagram – pretty much everybody loves it. I LOVE it. I’M obsessed with it. No seriously, i’m TOO obsessed! And yes, although it’s only been only more than a month since I joined, not to brag, i’m starting to get pretty good at it and into it. When I was small I had a MAJOR thing for photography. I remember me roaming around with a silver camera strap around my neck, when we took a trip to South Africa. And I still LOVE photography. But then I had kind of lost my touch. Maybe because that camera stopped working, or maybe because I simply got digressed into other things. But whatever was the case, Instagram has brought me back.
