Black-it-up!

Black is a color, so solid and pure…Its classic cool and impressively endure.

Black can easily cover up that other’s like blue,pink,yellow would miss on. It relates to the air of mystery. It also happens to be one of the first colors used in art on a blank canvas the caves during the old centuries where art form and stories of legends were told were also done with a black coal as its first. It has been naturally presented to us much before than you and I came into existence but it’s human mindset that distinguishes it from the other forms existing. It’s the way we look at either good or bad that matters for its acceptance.

I wish to have these black things that would make me living with the color even more enhancing

1. Cufflinks

Cufflinks are used to secure French button cuffs and are also an item of jewellery for men. In their simplest form a double, coloured silk knot. Cufflinks are manufactured from a variety of different materials, such as glass, stone, leather, metal, precious metal or combinations of these.These would be the perfect cufflinks in black i wish for that would give me an edge over others in both style and different outlook

2. Trench Coat

I want this for the winters i visit my cousins in abroad…Even though the winters are blissful they are freaking cold, so to warm me up from within enjoying the season i would wish for these. The trench coat is garment is double-breasted with 10 front buttons, has wide lapels, a storm flap and pockets that button-close.The coat is commonly belted at the waist with a self-belt, as well as having straps around the wrists that also buckle up.

3. Biker Jacket

Leather jackets will be cool forever and can add a touch of rebelliousness to any outfit. This black classic biker style jacket has had a lot of details stripped from it to create a more minimalist style.It could be ideal for a cleaner outerwear look for me. For those long bike rides out of town riding with my friends this would be a must for me.

4. Black Navy Suit

The navy suit is, by far, the most versatile suit that any man can own. Barring black tie affairs, it can be worn for any situation that asks for a suit: a job interview, day-to-day business, dress-casual, a night out, a wedding, a funeral or any situation where one wants to look like something.When light hits a good navy suit just right, it can be stunning. And perhaps more than any other color, dark navy complements everyone’s skin and hair tones wonderfully. This would definitely give me a mileage by far.

5. Porsche Wallet

The one am using currently is worn out and carrying an accessory like a wallet is a must for men. This porsche wallet  is a small, flat case that would help me to carry personal items such as cash,credit cards,identification documents etc.

ZestUp!

Life is sometimes so monotonous that everything you do on a daily basis would make you feel so claustrophobic and held up that looking beyond it would be a reality call u wana take!

How many times has it been that you get up in the morning go for work come back home totally tired and exhausted eat and straight go to sleep to wake up the next day just to start it off in the same routine each time? I remember my dad joking about it when we were kids saying when he leaves in the morning or returns back from work at night he always would see us horizontally lying and even though it was funny it was true somehow!

We study for a better course in school, in college we compete to stand out for a future career and at workplace we are all in a rat race for financial security and stability for life in this farce we live somehow small little things zest up and bring that lightning spark into your dead life sometime!

The five things that zest up my life are:

  1. When my phone pings:

Ahh when i wake up  or am stuck in traffic or having a bad day trust me there is nothing more beautifull than a loved one being concerned about my where abouts even thought they could least do something to help me out from a stuck situation but a sweet talk a calming word can bring back that smile on my face in no time. An assuring voice can lift up my spirits tremendously.

 

  1. When you spend time alone:

 

I know this would sound weird cause everybody loves having people around them and acknowledging their small deeds but trust me knowing yourself better is more important than putting up a fake smile to fit in a place when am  not going to be myself there rather sit home and watch a movie or listen to music watering the plants in the garden would pump me up.

 

  1. Watching old childhood photographs and videos:

 

 

That little me crying in a cradle when I was born and that aww I was so cute is such a wonderful feeling when I go through the flashback in the old albums up my shelf. It brings back the feeling of innocence and emotions being a kid I could do and say what I want without being judged for being right or wrong. Sing,shout,scream be who I wanted to be without any responsibility or pressure being a grown up.

 

 

 

  1. Music and Dance:

 

No matter how tiring the day has been dancing to the pop numbers being played eithr on tv,lappy,radio gets back the electric rush through me like someone has truly said dance like nobody is watching and shake a leg to every tune ur humming. Its beautiful to connect to music from the soul it takes you to a different place altogether.

 

  1. Learning something new:

 

Being the person I am I don’t belong to one genre as such anything I come across interesting or intruisive curious to know more about the topic and expanding my knowledge is what I look upto like surfing through it online and discussing it with friends wanting to know more about the subject itself is a need to educate myself about is what I feel and the next time somebody questions me on it answering it confidently gives me a sense of being intellectual in my own way.

Rich Black Needs

IF one day i woke up as one of the world’s richest man, I would like to own these 5 things which i always dreamed of which would make me look absolutely a class apart. They say no color has any depth without the color black…black is poetic, black is authoritative and powerful. It makes one feel inconspicuous and provides a restful emptiness, it is mysterious by evoking a sense of potential and possibility…since black is associated with power and elegance so would love to own all five things in no other color but black 
1) Suit
1.0x0
The color black is associated with sophistication and power…tuxedos, limousines, judge’s robes and priest’s attire are all typically black. Men wear suit and it signifies class pride. Boys wear t-shirt and jeans but real men wear suit and I always dreamed of wearing suit and going to office. So if i wake up rich I will surely buy elegant black suit.
2) Rolex Watch
rolex

Rolex is world famous for its performance and reliability.As it is said watches only don’t show time it also tells the time of person this Rolex will tell my time to people. And I’m in total awe of the Rolex and wish to possess 3-4 for in the same color but different design for my daily use.

3) Shoes
louis-vuitton
A shoe is not only a design but it’s a part of your body language, the way you walk. The way ur going to move is quite dictated by ur shoes.After a royal suit and watch it is now turn of some elegant shoes. Louis Vuitton is best in businessand will sure love to add this elegant beauty to my collection

4) Iphone
Apple-iPhone-5
This is the one gadget i always wanted to own this master piece will add seven starsto my personality. And I’m big gizmo freak and even bigger lover of apple products and I always dreamed of owning one so this will be added to list

5) Porsche
porsche car-exclusive porsche black special edition

This Porsche speedster is just out of the box dream I wish for so badly and the way it’s door closes like I’ll just sit there and listen to the sound of the latch going, cluh-CLICK-click’. That Door! I would live for the door…Lamborghinis and Ferraris come close and are more powerful, but they don’t handle like a Porsche. It really is unique one that I need.

Star of my Life!

The first WOMEN we learn from are usually our mothers. Not always, but often the first role models for how we want to be as women in the world is our mother and/or grandmothers.The women around us are those from whom we learn what it means to BE a woman – and how to enact our strength and our femininity.
Our mothers and grandmothers also show us how to take care of a family, how to take care of children and a partner, as well as other extended family members. They show us how to interact with our community, and in our church.
Our mother shows us the importance of work, and responsibility, and getting things done.
They show us how to deal with deal, and our resources. They show us how to deal with difficult times, and how and when to show our emotions.
There is so much we learn from our mothers – both what we want to do and what to avoid – and we are immensely grateful to them (at least, I know I am for mine!).
Often, however, what we do not learn from our mothers is how to be a career woman.
So while we can look up to our mothers for a number of different characteristics and traits they’ve taught us, it is not common for us as Latinas to have a mother who was a businesswoman or a professional.
For me, I learned kindness, acceptance, connecting, and open-mindedness from my mother. My mother showed her emotions, including her love and affection, for me and my brother. I saw her cry when she was hurt, and smile, laugh and sing when she was happy.
My mom is the one that always comes off the airplane with new friends (with whom she’s bragged about me). I used to be embarrassed that she talked about me, but now I’m glad that she’s proud, and realize it’s part of who she is.
She’s the one who keeps in touch with people for 40 years, and the one who loved all of my friends, no matter how much trouble they’d gotten into.
There are a number of traits for which I look to my mother as an example. I am lucky she was my mom.
However, when it comes to the professional setting, I didn’t always know how to behave since I had no example to follow. Sometimes this was a good thing– I used my friendliness to get me through, and got to decide how I wanted to interact with my professional colleagues. Sometimes this wasn’t such a good thing – like when I didn’t know how to deal with difficult people in the workplace, or what to ask for from my bosses and mentors.
Role models are so important, and I am glad for the example my mother set for me, and at the same time, I learned that I had to have additional role models for the kind of woman I wanted to be in the professional setting.
As we start the new year, and look forward to the goals and aspirations we set, I am grateful for the foundation I have, as well as serious about the steps I need to take to get to the next level.
Thanks, Mom, for not only being an example for me, but for helping me set the foundation for who I am – and supporting me to make it to places you had never been, but aspired to for me! And thanks to all those other women to whom I’ve looked for role models of strong, successful businesswomen.

Why i like my name – By Annette

With everyone being baptized with different

names with meaning according to their day, month, birth

chart or some sort of occasion, I too have a name that

signifies an auspicious beginning of life….When I was around

10 years old I had quite a few people being so curious to

know what exactly my name meant or how exactly do they

pronounce it to get it right, I didn’t ponder over the

thought so much or the meaning behind it back then but

later on as I grew up I figured out that I should probably

figure out by now what’s so special in a name or why did the

elder’s in the family choose to baptize me with this

name…My Mom’s Dad i.e my late Grandfather was a highly

intellectual man with knowledge in abundance to share with

whoever he came across…A week before I was about to be

born he suggested this name to my parents after quite a

good brief research over it…I was born on the 1st of May

1993 at 12.05pm in the afternoon in

Mangalore,Karnataka….He decided My name should begin

with the first alphabet “A” as I was born on the first and

my birth date when added sums up to a total of 1 i.e

1+5+1+9+9+3=28 (2+8) = 10(1+0)=1.

Have being born in a catholic family it comes

under tradition that while selecting a name for a new born

we do it according to the bible a holy book with biblical

names and specific meanings to it…They could either be a

latin or greek derivation done later of the name in

English…My name has a total of 7letters and 2syllables

with 1A, 2N, 2E, 2T to it and is derived from the language

“Hebrew” in which my name “ANNETTE” means “Grace and

Dignity” and the actual pronounciation to it is AH-NET but

commonly pronounced as A-nnett by family and friends….Im

very happy to have been blessed with this name as I don’t

find it common like Karen,Rita,Priya,Neha etc…It somehow

distinguishes me from the common and makes me feel so

special…I remember being in the 10th

know that the only one who shares a name common to mine

was a little girl in the 2nd Grade so that’s the ratio of how

uncommon this name has been throughout my life…It’s a

little difficult to to get the pronounciation exactly right to

my name at the first instance but if you do you must be a

real good one at your vocabulary I betcha!

A tarot reader sometime back had told me that

my name has a deep inner desire to inspire others in a

higher cause, and to share my own strongly held views on

valued matters.

People with this name are excellent at analyzing,

understanding, and learning. They tend to be mystics,

philosophers, scholars, and teachers. Because they live so

much in the mind, they tend to be quiet and introspective,

and are usually introverts but fun loving. When presented

with issues, they will see the larger picture. Their solitary

thoughtfulness and analysis of people and world events may

make them seem aloof, and sometimes even melancholy.

Annette was also a television serial that ran on The

Mickey Mouse Club during the show’s third season (1957-

1958). It starred Annette Funicello as Annette McCloud,

a poor, orphaned country girl who moves into town with

her upper-class aunt and uncle. . Most of the plot was

around her at high school trying to fit in with everybody

else. I also share my name with some famous Hollywood

celebrities like Annette Bening (American actress) ,

Annette Stroyberg(Danish actress), Annette Zilinskas

(American musician) , Annette Salmeen (American swimmer,

Olympic gold medalist, Rhodes Scholar, biochemist)

The day am born is considered as a Labour’s Day

throughout the world with qualities like leadership and

team spirit seem to be inbuilt in me it also happens to be

Maharashtra Day in the state of Maharashtra also declared

as a public holiday where no one can make an excuse saying

they are too busy to celeberate or checking the calendar

every year to hope that their birthday’s doesn’t fall on a

working weekday atleast. One of the other co-inciding fact

about my birthday is the day I was born my Godparents got

married the same day in the evening which calls each time

for a double celeberation…

In conclusion I would love to say that am very glad to have

this name and it’s a special name that define the uniqueness

I behold in me…

A month that belongs to us

It was a Friday afternoon when the office work was done earlier than usual and like otherwise where most of my girl gang at workplace would have been sulking over household chores awaiting them on the weekend to follow they were all instead enthusiastic to kickstart the evening by pampering themselves at the Phoenix Marketcity Kurla, the largest Premium Lifestyle shopping mall, in India, that offers the best of international and national brand mix for the best of shopping where as a part of celebrating International Women’s month the Information desk at the mall would allow a free registration showing a valid corporate photo ID or a credit card or a valid four wheeler’s driver license by any Lady from the 8th March- 31st March would be given a Power Pack Brochure with 12 entries free to various outlets in the mall on weekdays only and the benefits of being registered would let oneself make full availability of it up til the end of June 2014.
           A friend of mine told me that these Power Pack Benefits would include some as Free entry COUPONS to Snow World where Freezing Rains  Snow world, a gastronomic adventure and a hub for cultural, sports and family activities and urban entertainment had Huge natural Snow filled Mountains and Snow Play area with crazy freezing climate that set the sense for a chilling experience and enjoyed real snow and Activities of sledging, sliding, warming in an Igloo with fire camp, enjoyed skating on the crystal clear ice, dashed few othermates with disco cars in chilled atmosphere let her totally spellbound & Drinks Free at Rain Forest  where the dimly lit place has low hanging lights over each table and comfortable seating. Jungle creepers hanging over faux-rock walls around a huge projector TV gives the restaurant a simulated rainforest look good enough for a wild experience. The food menu highlighted Indian, Chinese and Italian cuisines among the few to be listed also CASHBACK offers on a limited amount purchase done on more than 250+ Brands & Accessories as well as electronic gadgets with 5% cashback on downpayment without any BARGAIN or don’t know what would fit the bill? type of situation as price ranges would start right from an affordable price to meet higher end demands and Series of clothes and furniture that epitomizes the brand’s vision of discreet luxury with every creation made into a compelling combination of stunning weaves, prints, embroideries, sensuous materials and impeccable craftsmanship.
     With otherwise no time left for oneself in a busy working environment this would be a great chance for all those lovely ladies to make themselves feel so special in a beautiful way !

The Fear Of Missing Out (FOMO)! – By Annette D’Cunha

Time is running short for all the things one wants to do in Life. The bucket list is long and the number of items ticked after completion, too few. So one learns to reassess, reschedule and prioritize.

However, the fear of missing out on all you want to do in order to live life to its full potential, is very different from the fear of missing out on the fun , the good times and opportunities that are being enjoyed by others. I see the former fear  as a positive sign, which if handled properly, can only enhance one’s living experience….but the latter fear brings in huge  amounts of dissatisfaction looking at what others are doing and achieving that makes you feel inadequate comparatively. No amount of rescheduling or re-prioritizing can ever help you take care of a discontent that stems from the achievements or enjoyment of others. The anxiety does not let you to decide which of multiple equally fun-sounding events to be a part of. So people are glued to their Smartphones obsessively checking mails WhatsApping , BBMing or posting on Twitter or individual blogs. As people post their minute-by-minute activities, thoughts, spotlight moments and achievements on social networking sites, it causes envy and restless inadequacy amongst others.

Everyone wants to be “someone”, someone influential who is looked upon and followed by many but so much dependency on the fun others are having is bound to have a negative impact on oneself leaving no scope to explore our own feelings, talents and potential. So let’s turn the fear of missing out within and figure out what we would most like to do for our ownselves ,independent of others. What is it that enhances life for you? What gives you feeling of completion and satisfaction? Let us focus on our own Bucket List rather than on fake ones created by others!

Revolutionary change in the Indian Constituency

47% of new young voters in the upcoming generation are going to be voting for the first time in the elections to be held in the coming month of April and this lot of powerful voters are more aware of their political and economical issues happening in the current scenario, this generation is also called as techno-youth political parties like AAP have focused campaigning on social media with quick action to be taken on issues that are ignored often and have successfully attracted young new minds towards them.As a general law one day prior to the elections to be held parties contesting can’t campaign but it was observed that during recent Delhi election AAP supporters in full swing were campaigning for their candidates with the help of these social media platforms and were very successful in doing so,hence the youth vote bank will play crucial role in this upcoming election and have understood how their one precious right to vote will make or break the government…a revolutionary change indeed!
