Goals for 2018

Its the start of a new year and here’s another opportunity for all of us to make this year very productive and special at the same time… Like others  I’ve  set some goals  that i’m willing to achieve by the end of this year…

One thing that you must know when you set goals is that you need to be practical and only set goals that are achievable. Instead of weaving dreams in the air make a resolution that would have significance and add a meaning to your life.  Less is more, prioritize you goals and accordingly work towards it.

Here are a few goals that I’ll be working on this year…

  1.  Fit in Fitness-I enjoy working out in fresh air, taking long walks or going out for a run. This year I’m going to make that a routine activity which will help me stay fit and beat stress.
  2. Healthy Hogging- My eating habits have gone for a toss since the time I’ve started senior college and its high time that i start eating healthy. Hence, this year i plan on eating healthy food and staying away from all the junk that I’ve been consuming…
  3. Being more Organized- I’ve always been the kind of person who enjoys being organized but somehow towards the end o 2017 i felt extremely lazy and i felt a need to change urgently. Hence, this year i want to get back to being organized…
  4. Learn a new language- Learning new languages has always been my hobby, so this year i thought i should invest my spare time in doing something i love and something that’ll help me in the future.
  5. Maintain a balance- It is extremely important to strike a balance between anything and everything you do. Until last year i was only focusing on my College and neglected my hobbies  but this year i am going to try my level best to give both equal attention.

People change with time, so do their aspirations. Seriously taken,  new year resolutions are an opportunity to gauge our goals. I hope you guys enjoyed reading some of my resolutions. I would love to know what your resolutions are so don’t forget to comment down below…. Hope you all have a happy 2018 and make the most out of it…. Thank-you! 🙂




10 Beauty Hacks Every Girl Should Know


There are plenty of obstacles to overcome our daily hair and beauty regime. Frizzy hair, chipped nailpolish, smudged mascara, none of us are a fan of these.  So i did a little research and came across some of these hacks which are super easy. Here are 10 tricks that will make your life easier …..

Take your eye makeup from a sleek daytime look to something sexier by smudging your liner with a cotton swab to diffuse it into a smokey eye look.

Hide a manicure thats growing out by creating an ombre effect starting at the base of your nail. The best way to distract from a chipped overgrown nail is GLITTER. It looks pretty and lasts for a long time.

To get rid of your makeup quickly all you need to do is apply coconut oil or a cold cream to your face and massage it for 2minutes. Wipe the face with a cotton swab or a face wipe and wash with your regular face wash.

Nearly everyone suffers from dreaded mascara marks on our eyelids whilst applying. Place a spoon with the curve above or below the lashline to help avoid mascara residue

Chipping of nails can be very irritating, espicially when theres some big event coming up. To prevent nails from chipping keep your nails coated with a good quality nailpaint.

Eliminate puffy eyes by applying an ice pack for 5-10 minutes right after you wakeup

To accentuate long lashes use a cotton bud and apply baby powder to your top and bottom set of lashes. Once done, recoat the lashes  with mascara for fuller lashes.

To make the lipstick last longer, apply the lipstick, gently place a tissue paper on your lips and dab some pressed powder on the top on the tissue.

If you’ve washed your hair but dont have the energy to blow dry it, loosely twist your hair into a bun, secure it with a clip. When its dry untwist your hair and seperate the locks with your fingers for effortless waves.

Dry your newly painted nails super quickly by placing your nails in a bowl of ice cold water. The cold water makes the nailpaint settle quickly.

So i hope these 10 super easy beauty hacks have made your beauty regime a lot easier. If you found the post useful do give it a like and dont forget to hit the follow button for more.


Chocolate Cupcakes


A week ago i suddenly felt the urge to try and bake some cupcakes so after a lot of hardwork and watching various YouTube videos  i finally baked them and to my surprise they turned out to be really yummy, i made it again a few days later with my own variations and they also turned out to be pretty good. So i decided to share this quick and easy recipe with all of you….


2 room temperature Eggs

1/2 teaspoon of Baking soda and Baking powder

1/2 cup of Buttermilk OR 1/2 cup of Milk + 1/2 teaspoon of Vineger

1 stick of Butter

2oz. of semi sweet chocolate

3 quarter cups of Flour

1/2 cup of Cocoa powder

Quarter teaspoon of salt

1 teaspoon of Coffee powder (optional)

1/2 cup of powdered Sugar

1 teaspoon of Vanilla extract

 Vanilla Icing


Take the stick of butter and the chopped semi sweet chocolate in a bowl and heat it in the microwave with 30sec. intervals until it melts properly.

 In a seperate bowl mix the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, salt and coffee powder.

In a seperate bowl crack in 2 eggs, add in the powered sugar and vanilla extract. Mix it well.

Add half of the flour mix to the mixture of eggs and mix it. Then add the buttermilk OR 1/2 cup of milk+ 1/2 teaspoon of vineger to the mixture and stir it well. Add the remaining flour mix along with the melted chocolate mixture and mix it well.

Scoop the mixture into the cupcake liners. (This recipe makes a dozen cupcakes.)

Bake it for 18mins at 350degrees in an oven. (i baked the cupcakes in a microwave for 3mins and it turned out really well )

Once the cupcakes are out of the oven let them cool completely.

I used readymade vanilla icing by Philsbury to ice the cupcakes and topped it with some shredded chocolate.

I hope you all find this blogpost helpful and i would absolutely love to see all of you trying this recipe and then sharing your opinions about it with me….Thankyou! 🙂
