Thank God for Christmas.

There's been a lot going on in my mind these days...
With all the wonderful, joyous season's spirit hovering around me. God has been such a "God" to me. I don't even know where to start thanking Him. I sometimes feel so small and undeserving of all that He has given me. As if being born into a Christian family was not enough. I'm so blessed to understand His grace and salvation. Thank God for Christmas!
This Christmas has been an eye-opener for me. No, I did not dance in the church or shout out praises loud in the church. Nor did I get any extra dime to spend with my friends. It's just the realization of being so much blessed. I had my family, friends and my boyfriend with me this Christmas. I couldn't ask for more. Thank God for Christmas!

All in the mood for Holidays... or not quite yet.

I know, every time I write is always a long-time-no-see post. You can't blame me. The end-semester exams were one hell of a hectic time. And on top of that sleepless nights of working and assignments didn't even pay off! Sigh.
Now, I'm in the airport in Delhi, being as early as I can be, waiting to board the plane to Guwahati. I can't wait to be at home. I miss my dog the most, Tommy. Not that I don't miss my family. Hehe. This feeling of wanting to be at home during the Christmas holidays is so new to me. Being away from home for the very first time, I never knew one can be this nostalgic during the season. In fact  I always thought I was the kinda girl who was not really into this whole "lonely" thing. I was so free and independent, loved to be alone, loved to hang out with almost anyone. Not anymore.
I celebrated my 19th Birthday on the 15th of December. Well, not really "celebrate". My parents came over to Delhi on the 14th on their way back from an official trip. I spent a night and saw the dusk of my born day with them, which was very special. However, dropping them off early  in the morning was not a good start.
I spent the whole afternoon alone in the room of my PG, crying, yes, literally. Umm, there's goes one confession! I missed being at home, not that we would party or anything even back there, but the feeling of being with people who you know will care no matter what is priceless. I'm not talking about anything new here. I know a lot of you have faced this many times, now I understand.
That feeling and the pressure of exams didn't actually help in getting me the Christmas spirit. I just hadn't felt the air yet. Being in the capital where this season is highly commercial did nothing to me. Every time I Facebook or read blogs, everyone wrote so much about shopping, being at home and Christmas decorations. So, I decided the first thing I would do after the exams is shop, shop and shop.

The Big Red Trend

"Loving him is Red", says the country princess Taylor Swift in her latest single Red. Well, I still don't exactly know what she's trying to tell us here, but I love the concept of how she publicizes the album. Fashion-wise concept. I've been studying her style ever-since the "White Horse" and "Tim McGraw " days. She has transformed from a typical country dress-wearing teen to a classy retro adult.
In the promos for her album, she has been spotted wearing a lot of French Connection black and white sweaters or tops and a red pant. She carried it off well, with the red lips that compliment her.

Swift's pictures have been flooding my Facebook news feed, and you know what they say, when you see too much of one thing, you tend to get that inside of your head.
And it so happened that one fine morning I wake up, take a bath, and have no clue what to wear in the college. Plus, I was getting so late! I just took out whatever I saw, assembled and off I went. After a while in the college, my friends started to compliment on what I was wearing. Thus, leading to some photo-shoot.
