Sun and sands

Do you see?
Golden sands. Blue seas. Seashells. Shades. Hats. Best friends.
Its summer 2010 :)
Before you realize, summer days will be long gone. On work days, you just cant wait for the summer, and then sooner than you think, you are getting bored during summer!!
Well, at least I did.
So we decided to hit the beach :)
Apart from the cool waters, jet-skiing, best friends and laughing uncontrollably.
I managed to get few decent shots, but just one is worth showing off... and that's how far my creative brain took me.

So there are few things, you must enjoy in this season despite the heat..
No.1 : Lemonade
Oh yes, feeling the ice cold, sugary lemon drink run down your throat...nothing can beat the heat better!
No.2 : Fall in love with anything and everything all over again
The sun, the scent in the summer breeze, nature, books, chocolates...
whatever you get to see, sense and smell...just fall in love.
No.3 : Enjoy the cherries
Cant resist them!! They are always the "in-fruit" in summer!! And yes, dont wipe the red juice dripping down to your the summer feeling (well, atleast to me)!
No.4 : Summer sale
Okay girls, hit the malls..nothing is better than getting your hands on happy, pretty colored clothes and bags on summer sale!
No.5 : Pause and bring forth your talent
Who knows, deep down maybe an actor, poet, artist etc... Its just the perfect season and reason to pause and discover yourself.
No.6 : Collect the sea shells
I discovered that a huge of collection of seashells in different shapes gives you beautiful necklace or a just a simple key ring. Depends on how innovative you get with them.
Well, so that's my list for a perfect summer :)
True that its extremely hot out there; I mean literally, its skin melting especially right here in the Middle East. For the beauty goddesses; forget the beautiful natural tan here. Its not worth the pain.

And for some reason, I have got a craving for that lemonade I talked about!!
So folks, catch you later!

beat the heat

Let your heart harbour love

Dont read this for the sake of reading...'cause it carries a message, a message when you think of, lets you find yourself in the darkest paths.

I happened to stumble upon this beautiful quote (below) laced with pure pearl like wisdom, and it really made me think. 

Evil is always possible. And goodness is eternally difficult.
ANNE RICE (Interview with the Vampire)

It happens when the goodness is lost; the mind is poisoned and one can't think straight; when you have no mercy left in your heart.
Wrath, envy, revenge, pride...its hell let loose...

They say love is the cure to all evils, so why cant everyone love and be loved?
Beauty of your soul lays in a deep slumber and when you conquer your demons, it wakes up...It makes you beautiful inside out.
Your strangled feelings breathe. Sometimes its necessary to forgive yourself to forgive others...
Loving is not hard, forgiving is divine and your soul promises you peace within your heart.

And as the Arabian proverb goes ''If you have much, give of your wealth; if you have little, give of your heart.''
Trust me, it wont kill :)
Don't kill the good inside you. Nobody wants to die hated and unwanted.

Spread love and watch it get spread.

Okay...this is really one random post...I heard about the Paris Haute Couture week so just thought of sharing it and added bit of drama based on my experience :)

I'm a dreamer...
How bad is it to dream about one thing you have always wanted...
And then watch it crushed right in front of your eyes...
It could have been a precious dream to you...
but NOTHING to others.....

Yes...I dreamed of being famous
a shining star..
Loved by all...

Paris Haute Couture week Fall- Winter 2010/11

A dreamer ....

Emerging French designer, Christophe Josse, looked to the long, lean silhouettes of the early 19th century for inspiration, delivering a nuanced collection in dusty-hued silks, velvets, astrakhan and feathers. (above)

Embrace your dreams

A fairytale world....

Hello peeps, :)
So I have decided not to procrastinate at all in blogging! I mean seriously I enjoy it!! :)

Expect nothing in return.
The other night, I almost broke down in tears thinking about how some things have been seriously messed up. 
So I just decided to talk to one person I haven't talked to in ages about anything happening in my life.

As I approached closer to my mom, I could hear her soft hum. She was singing a lullaby to my sister. That lullaby ruffled the withered, yet golden leaves of sweet memories in my mind, and I found myself there, laying next my mom, just 4 years old.
It was one cold night in mid December and I huddled closer to my mom for warmth and quietly listened to her sweet lullaby.
"Mom, can you please tell me one last bed time story" I said looking at her hopefully
She smiled softly and touched my cheek and said " Okay, just one and its getting late baby, you better sleep after this"

And then I sailed over the clouds, over lush green lands and huge blue oceans; to the land of dreams, unicorns, kings and queens, to the castle where a princess lay in a sound sleep for 100 years ; deep down in the sea where a beautiful mermaid lived and to magical forests where fairies danced on pretty flowers. A journey of a innocent child who believed that all this really existed, who never knew that a cold, harsh world awaits her.

"Mom, can every girl be a princess?" I asked my mom one day as she lovingly watered my favourite carrot plant in my mini garden.
"Yes baby, why not. Look at you, you are the prettiest princess I have ever seen" mom laughed softly and answered my question.
"So, will I find a prince for myself" I asked her again imagining myself with Cinderella's prince.
She looked at me and then pointed up at the clouds and said " Ofcourse you will, he lives in a far faraway castle up there, and when you want him, he'll be here"

And then I was back again, sitting next to my mom. We no more get along, and I thought of reasons why we no more do. But right then, I knew she only could help.
"Mom, what would you do if nothing is going the way you want, and if you had to choose between two special people in your life"? I asked her with a hope for an answer.
"Why would anyone have to choose. One has to have enough love in their heart, so that everyone gets their share" she answered blankly.
She didnt get it; infact, she would never.
"You just have to choose, no matter how much love you carry in your heart" I said.
"Well then, you cant choose; I wouldn't choose, it would hurt one of them, and it will hurt you eventually. All you can do is have faith in yourself. Never let things weaken you easily, and give out all you got and never expect anything in return". Mom said looking at me and then closed to her eyes.
"Yes mom". I said and kept quiet.

I knew I had to leave. I was on my own anyway. As I left her room, I kept pondering over the piece of advice she gave me. It didnt help me heal, it didnt solve anything but it did defintely teach me one thing. Life isn't a fairytale, its not a fairytale world...its a serious business and we have to make it to the end.
Towards a happy ending.

Its cold, dark and quiet....

These lines really make me feel relaxed in a weird way.....

The day is cold.

The day is cold and dark and dreary.

And it rains,

and the wind is never weary.

Ivy still clings to the wall,

at every gust the dead leaves fall.

And the day is dark,

and the day is dark and dreary.

Be still sad heart.

Oh be still and cease repining,

behind the clouds.

Behind the clouds is the sun still shining.

Thy fate is the fate of all,

into life some rain must fall.

Some days must be dark,

some days must be dark and dreary.

Behind the clouds,
is the sun.

I see the sun.

Behind the clouds,
is the sun.
