Motivated by an Italian who collected Australian coins; my interest for Numismatics began as a competition. Anto, my Italian friend used to collect these 2 dollar coins, specifically. He had a huge collection of other coins too, but at that time, his fascination was confined to this. As an instinctual move, after seeing his passion for these 2 dollar coins, I started collecting them involuntarily. Every time I got coins for change, I checked for 2’s and made sure I saved them in a separate purse.

After a while, when we were at home, eating the yummy pasta ricotta cooked by Anto himself, I showed him my collection. He was completely impressed. :) He was so impressed that he shared some of the doubles he had and also gave me some exotic coins from other countries. That was the starting point for me!!! After that incident, I became a coin collecting maniac. When I used to travel a lot and when I saw people from different countries, all I wanted to ask them was to give me one coin from their country’s currency. Well, that didn't quite work out for obvious reasons.

Here is a glimpse of my hobbyist collection :) and to ward off all the evil eyes of other numismatists, I am using a red background! ;) :D

By the way folks, I do exchange doubles with friends, purely for fun and not commercial!!! Anybody game? :)

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? :)
