'Carrey'ed away



I never thought of Jim Carrey to be funny although I do like his movies. It is the high dose of melodramatic expressions and that mouth which is open a few inches more than it should be which disturbs me. Otherwise, I think he is kind of cute.

Recently, I bumped into this video which was shared by one of my friends in Facebook. I was immediately intrigued because it said “Commencement address at Maharishi University of Management”. I should admit that I am somewhat drawn to commencement and graduation addresses. So, I opened this video and played it hoping to see what Jim Carrey had to offer for students. I have to tell you, I was surprised. In fact, it was overwhelming and I even took notes when he spoke about decisions made out of love and fear and asking universe for what we want. I thought it was much more impactful that Paulo Coelho’s Alchemist. It was B-E-A-UTIFUL!  The genuineness which reflected from every word he said and every joke he cracked is unbelievable and so unlike his movies, it gave me goose bumps.
I do believe that when you ask for something wholeheartedly, you happen to get it; sooner or later. But never forget to ask and never be afraid to ask! :)

Make Up and Me (Not Me)

They say people who don't know to dance have two left feet. Although, I might have two left feet myself, what is more interesting is I might actually have two left hands.

Okay, I understand that's funny but here is why:

If you are a girl or a boy or a boy who looks like a girl, you would probably know that it is a thing now to have a makeup blog or vlog or youtube channel in your name. I bumped into this world of cosmetics, beauty blogs and tutorials only a few months ago. For those who don't know about it, let me tell you, it is a crazy, ruthless and unbelievable world.



Heard of these? Snail slime masks, Placenta hair masks, Seaweed bathing creams, Microblading.... and endless other such insane stuff. These are insane but quite popular among beauty enthusiasts and they even swear by the benefits of such products.

These are otherwise cringe-worthy products in my world. I use gramflour+tumeric face mask, Coconut oil hair mask and  a normal, cheap bathing soap and my skin i…

Ever Yours, Vincent.

Never in a thousand years did I think I would be obsessed with a late, delusional psycho who was also an exceptional artist and a noteworthy character with a peculiar interest for romance.
My affair started around 8 years back; a time when I had started writing and blogging for the first time. I visited this pop-up museum of contemporary art which showcased Vincent Van Gogh’s choicest documentaries. Many of his famous paintings were also on display. That was the day I fell in love, with his art, with the way he loved, with the way he expressed himself before he fell into life’s inevitable trap.
The beautiful yellowish hues that dominated his paintings, the sunflowers, the potato eaters and the starry night which comes alive in my dreams every night. Those letters he wrote his brother Theo with care, love and a pinch of attitude. That unconditional brotherly love, that aimless love he showed his friend and mentor Gauguin, that love he showed the random women he saw and painted, that lo…

Memories of...#26DaysOfSummer #A-ZChallenge

I don't know if this one counts for a poem. My rhyming sense failed miserably as emotion took over. A stinging emotion called nostalgia. A nostalgia which is synonymous to summer itself and a lot of other sweet things.

Here goes:





What is your favorite mango memory? share it with me here, won't you? :)
