7 Types of Scarves Every Fashion Woman Must Own

If you have been reading my blog for a while; you would be knowing; how much I love scarves! They always find a special place in my wardrobe. I believe,"a "perfect" scarf can save your day, can make you look chic and elegant- effortlessly."

Accessorizing is an essential part of fashion for every woman. Our look remains incomplete without the "right" accessories- be it a bag/clutch, a hat, glasses, jewelry, or scarves. I'm sure you would agree? Out of many, a scarf and a statement necklace are my easy (instant styling tips) picks when I find my clothing not-so-beautiful. A scarf is not just a great companion for cold and winter days; but this piece of fashion accessory can make you look stylish, elegant, and chic within no time- all-year-round. 
There are lot of things to know about this fashion accessory like: the different types, different kinds in length and textures, different ways to tie them around or to carry them with you everywhere, and much more. You'll see more of posts about this (on scarves) in the coming days.

Come along and read through these must have scarves that every fashion woman should have in their wardrobe:

1. Statement Scarves.

Yes, such scarves are great in creating a style statement. Doesn't matter if they make a cotton, satin, silk, or any other type of fabric; important is how they contribute in creating a fashionable look for yourself! Throw them over anything, even on any dull or basic outfit; and they can make your look polished and presentable instantly. And the types are: silk scarves, florals, bright colors with or without beautiful flowers and prints.

2. A Pashmina Silk Scarf

A Pashmina scarf is not just a luxury scarf; but also a "glam scarf". The soft smooth silk texture makes it a great fashionable accessory. It can go well with any kind of clothing: formal or non-formal. Best features are: can be worn with everything, and in many different ways. Every woman should own at least one pashima style wrap.

Pashimas are either available in bright plain colors, or in prints; but always a silk soft material.

3. A Leopard Print Scarf

A leopard print scarf is always a must have accessory, especially for a fashion enthusiast. They make a great fashion statement. They can be worn in any occasion, or in any season. Leopard prints still find a great place in the fashion world. So if you still haven't included this timeless print in your wardrobe, you must now- I would say.

4. Pom Pom and Tassel Scarves

These are my favorites too! I own a couple of them. They make such a great stylish look- for every type of outfit. Pom poms, tassels, and fringes are so very popular these days. They can be worn around the neck or can be tied to your handbag. Wear it in spring or summer, they will never disappoint you:)

5. The Oversize Plaid Scarf

The fashion industry is crazy about some classic pints like: plaid, stripes, floral, and polka dots. Not just the fashion world; every fashion woman likes to own outfits with these prints. Just the way a classic plaid dresses, shirts, and skirts are favorite items in a woman's wardrobe; so are these oversize plaid scarves. They make a great fashion statement. The feeling of bundling up in an oversized scarf is so comforting and hassle free way of looking great. 


6. A Blanket Scarf

Even though they are only winter favorites for everyone; I would still say that," you must own one or two blanket scarves. They make such a huge difference to your winter looks, and they are equally useful in keeping you warm and cozy all winter long.

I would agree that they may not be a must- have for everyone due to it's big size and thick fabric, but they are my favorites. Learning how to tie a blanket scarf around may seem like challenging, but once you learn the styling tips on how to throw them around your neck or shoulders perfectly, you'll love wrapping them all winter long.

7. The Animal or Bird Print Scarf

Animal and bird prints, or butterfly prints are so hot in fashion these days. And scarves with these prints make a beautiful addition to your outfit.

So do you like wearing scarves? What are the types you own, or wish to include in your  wardrobe? Do leave me your comments and if you liked the post, then please do share.

Why You Should Love Your Flaws

"If You Look For The Good, You Will Find It."
If we look for what's wrong with ourselves, we will find plenty of reasons to complain about. But if we look for the best things in ourselves, we'll find plenty of reasons to celebrate. The former allows us to hate ourselves; and the latter teaches us to embrace our true self- with flaws. 

We are all born with some flaws, or we adopt few over a period of time. But we are made up of flaws. And you cannot deny this fact! Nobody is perfect. It's a different matter that in-spite of knowing them, we pretend to be "perfect," and try our best to let them not show up to anybody. We do the alteration or try to conceal the "real things" from the world like:  the physical beauty; body image, appearance, attitudes, failures, weaknesses, certain "negative qualities," and what not. With the changing world, there's solution to everything now; especially if you want to hide things under layers, and project yourself the "perfect" way. But aren't you tired of repressing the true you? Don't you feel the heavy emotional baggage you are carrying underneath- that's holding you back from showing the world- that you're best in so many other ways. So why hide? Why pretend that you are a "perfect" man or a woman?

I grew up hating everything about myself: not just physical appearance, but everything! There were many reasons to feel that way. But ever since I started accepting myself-even with not-so-good- parts of me; I realized and met my beauty- my true beauty that was hiding way way under my fear and hatred. I did not know the talents, the qualities, the reasons that proved to me; that I was unique, I was special like everybody else.

My flaws are as real as I'm. No hiding behind; and nothing to feel shy about. 

I love fashion, I try looking my best, or behaving the "best" way possible, or being kind and polite to almost everyone; but sometimes I fail too! I fail to make everyone happy, and to be good to everyone. I make mistakes, I don't always look pretty or beautiful or attractive like my friends. I have my own reasons to not feel my best all-the-time. I may not be as talented as others, I may not be as intelligent as my friends, my siblings, or my cousins. But I'm much more than you think I'm not. All we need is that vision, that respect for others, and the kindness to accept oneself as well as people with flaws.

I don't like to pretend. I like being real without makeup, and not hiding the "ugly" parts of me most of the times- without feeling ashamed of myself.

The moment you love your flaws and accept them, you set yourself free from any kind of lies you have had been telling yourself or to others; and from all kinds of  society rules of "should be" and "must be." I have learned to look for the good in me, and embrace my imperfections.

When I see myself through my imperfections, they tell me a story about my strongest achievements, my victories, and my growing belief and confidence in me. They show me the scars and the bruises of humiliations and rejections- that have made me attractive, carefree, and strong in all these years. 

So embrace yourself. Embrace that not-perfect body of yours'. Love each of the ugly parts of you, or of yours' and you will soon feel the warmth of love and satisfaction.  You will be more strong to face the world or the people with all your  imperfections, because you're aware of them and you accept them with a open heart.

I hope this post will help you find that lost love and respect for yourself, and you will be confident to embrace your flaws.

How Best To Live A Day and Your Life

"Life is a natural process. But living requires effort." 

And to know if you are living your "best" life or not; you need to know if the effort is coming naturally or you are trying hard- every single day! 

In my early days of life, I was not loving my life at all, and I was pretending that everything was fine. Because I had muted my emotions. I wanted to show everyone that life was treating me fairly; but actually I wanted to believe it too! and therefore had kept all my unhappy feelings suppressed under my fears, uncertainty, responsibilities, approvals, relationships, and under many social acceptance rituals. I was not living my life to the fullest. I wasn't excited about my life. But something that I did not stop then; and even now is: looking forward to some good things coming my way. I had Faith (I still choose faith over my fears), I was Hopeful (still hopeful, because hope changes everything), and I Believed (And I still believe in miracles; and also because when no one else believed in me, I did)

"Your time is limited, don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinion drowned your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."    -Steve Jobs


Ever since I became aware of my interest and strengths; and pursued my passion, I've been living every day my best life, filled with satisfaction, peace, joy, and my life feels complete these days.

I learned to make the most of my day. 

Every task that you are able to do mindfully, and you put your heart and time into it- is special, is important, and is equally useful in adding meaning to your life. It's a great feeling; when you find a passion- and when that passion becomes your purpose of life. You'll learn to live more (happily) each day. So will you try to find that 'reason' from today?

"Every day is a new beginning."

Don't put your life on autopilot. And don't be very serious either.  Find things that can take away your attention from every big or small problems in your life. Let your mind know that life may not be easy every day; but certainly there are many things you can try doing and keep yourself engaged, that will help you take away your worries.

It may seem that life is fair to everyone; but that's not true. When you find it hard to live a happy normal life every day, try going out. See people around you. How everyone is struggling to make it to their life; to make it to their dreams. There are so many inspirations around us- feel them, lock them, and include those learning in your life. See if they make a difference in your attitude towards life!
