Happy New Year!!

HAPPY 2016, GUYS!! 😀

I hope everyone had a great start to the new year. I was in bed from 9 PM completing Maktub by Paulo Coelho so I could complete my Goodreads challenge in time. So glad I did or I would have gone bonkers.

Harreh at 12

This was me at 12 AM and I regret nothing. 😛

I spent today with my family. We had Nehari (Pakistani dish) for lunch. My mum is an awesome cook. I have not inherited any of her cooking skills sadly. After lunch we all watched Dilwale. It’s a Bollywood movie starring Shahrukh Khan and Kajol. It was alright. I thought I was over SRK but he looked really cute throughout the movie. Kajol looked pretty. Also, one can never go wrong with their pairing.

After the movie, I came to my room and started sorting, organizing and filing my paperwork. It was long overdue. I have got no further plans for the evening so I am sat here writing this post. I will probably go do more routine things now and maybe bake a cake to have after dinner with family. I hope you all have far more exciting plans for the evening and are having tremendous fun. :)I am really looking forward to how this year is going to be blogging wise. I want it to be awesome.

I am really looking forward to how this year is going to be especially blogging wise. I haven’t made a to-achieve list yet and I will probably make it along the year. I want  2016 to be awesome – for you lot as well. Let’s give it all we have to offer and nail it.

See you guys soon in my next post. 🙂

Lots of love,

Thoughts & Reflections

Note to Self – 2015

New Year Wallpaper.

Before 2015 started I wrote a list of things in my cell under the name of Note-to-Self. It was pointers and guidelines to remember throughout 2015 when I am feeling sad, confused or utterly lost. I thought of sharing it here too in case it helps any of you.

Note to Self

1- Not every moment needs to be filled with chatter. Silence is a beautiful state too. I was always compelled to talking more when with friends even if it was blah just so to keep that awkward silent pause at bay but honestly if you and your friend enjoy each other’s company, you guys will be fine with a few moments of silence too.

2- Not having negative people in your life is a blessing too. If you see yourself losing some, please be thankful and move on. There are far better people in the world that can inspire and motivate you than those who intoxicate your mind and soul.

3- Avoid double faced people at all cost. Someone who talks shit about other people in front of you and upon seeing them is their best friend, guarantees they have nothing good to say about you either to others. Avoid them as much as you can.

4- Surround yourself with positive people. Their happiness is contagious and good for your sensitivity.

5- You live in a world where intelligent people are full of doubts and stupid people are over confident. So don’t beat yourself too much about your confidence in things you believe in. Work on them as it will develop your confidence which will come save you at all right times.

6- If you feel like you have studied all your life, have a degree and are working but there is no improvement in your personality in any way, well that is because you let the system handle everything. Change that. Nurture yourself. Educate yourself in areas you want to do well. Develop yourself. No school, uni or workplace is going to do that for you. Even a simple task such as teaching yourself how to eat with fork and knife properly is a positive development.

7- Always pick kindness over sassiness/sauciness if you can. It might be a gentle way of conversation or simply forgiving someone. Holding on to hatred and negativity will hurt you only.

8- Be gentle to yourself. You are a work in progress. You are art. You are not a machine that will start working fine with a few repairs. You are a constant work in progress. Develop yourself in the best way possible. Take care of your etiquettes and manners, talk politely, live your life the way you want to and just be happy. In short be Benedict Cumberbatch!

9- If you’ve been single for a while, that’s okay. It is an experience as well. It gives you an opportunity to knowing yourself better and cherishing your existence. Learn to be independent and love yourself more than anyone loves you. Don’t waste this time by hitting on incompatible people or lowering your standards.

10- Eat wisely. Your body literally IS your temple. It’s the only thing that is going to stay with you forever. Don’t mess it up by feeding it just junk food and fizzy drinks. Make yourself healthy and strong by eating nutritious food. It is okay to have a cheat meal every now and then as long as you don’t overdo it.

11- Stop falling in love with Louis Tomlinson again and again.

12- Stick to anything that makes you happy to be alive. Do not give it up. But if it starts messing with your head and gets too much to handle, walk away.

13- Make the most of the days you feel strong, competitive and badass. They are very few. Hold on to them a little longer.

14- Don’t let others ruin your mood. No matter who they are, no matter what they say.

15- Never make fun of anyone. What goes around comes back around. Today you are laughing at them, tomorrow the whole world will be laughing at you.

16- Read slowly. I always rush my books/read in a hurry so that I read a lot of them but it just makes me forget everything once I close it, which sucks. Maybe I am just the forgetting type because I do remember someone mentioning this happens to them too, ha. Not alone here I guess but still I need to give reading slow a try too.

17- Don’t take comments of any sort too seriously. Relax. Take a chill pill.

18- Don’t take yourself or life too seriously. It will lead to over thinking which will eventually ruin your day-week-month-year.

19- Think of more positive thoughts every day when you wake up till the time you doze off to sleep.

20- If you notice your mind thinking negative thought, divert it by either thinking positive things or getting busy with work. Don’t let one negative thought ruin your whole day.

21- Stay active all day. You have your ‘week’ to settle in your bed and not coming out of it ever.

22- Learn how to survive-cook.

23- Take care of your nonexistent hair.

24- Spend more time in nature.

25- Save some money for the rainy days as they come unexpected and leave you extremely frustrated. You are not someone who can survive on less cash.

26- Pray.

27- Buy help/guide books than just novels.

28- Buy a new bookshelf.

29- Be passionate about everything you do.

30- Love yourself – often and enough! 🙂

Have a good year, guys! ❤

Happy New Year, Guys!! =)

Heyy!!

Happy New Year, Guys!! 😀

How is it going at your end?! 1st of January, 2014 is officially over here as its 1:50 right now. I practically did nothing on New Year’s Eve. It’s funny, a lot of people had other people to kiss last night at 12am and I was there just sitting with my laptop, blogging and pressing Publish at 12. I swear I am in a healthy relationship, I haven’t gone nuts yet. xD

Here is a festive picture to little up the mood!! xD

Today went well. I went shopping with mum to Carrefour Seeb. Then we both had dinner at Santino’s because I was craving Pizza. I wanted to have Pizza Hut but it’s still under construction there so I had to settle for Santino’s. Their Pizza was good too.

BTW, I bought quite a lot today and to be honest I am broke now (LOL) because I spent all my pocket money – on MAKEUP. Oh yeah, I’m turning into a babe this year. Ha-ha-ha. Even the thought of it makes me laugh. Also, I bought some shoes I’d be posting about later. I am thinking should I do a collective Haul post or should I post about all the purchases separately. Any suggestions, people?!

Anyway, I hope you all are having/have had an amazing start to the New Year. This year let’s try not to pile more tasks in our to-do list and instead really complete them.

This picture is just so true xD But no we shall not delay things anymore!!

I am not a resolution kind of a person. I now prefer doing whatever I want to the very moment. Life is too short and procrastination is not going to lead us anywhere. Waiting for a whole year to end to set resolutions is not a very practical idea. Do whatever you want to the soonest the possible because life is uncertain. Also, it’s very important to set realistic goals if you really want to achieve them, so a few would do well. Be happy, think positive, do good, hate less, forgive more, let go and love a little less carefully. 🙂

I wish and pray whoever is reading this blog and whatever I write, a very blissful year ahead.

With Lots of Love,

Fama xx
