Don’t Dream it’s over

(Picture taken in Lyon at “la vogue aux marrons”) Have you ever wondered what would be worse between having no dreams, and leaving your dreams just as they are: dreams? To be honest, I would not know where I stand. I guess dreams are what drive us to become more ambitious and actually turn these… Continue reading Don’t Dream it’s over

Autumnal State of Mind

Being what I like to call an October baby, autumn has always been a season of celebration for me. Some people see it as the end of summer, to me it’s the start of my season. Season of change. Change comes in different ways, but it always comes. Just like autumn, it is just around… Continue reading Autumnal State of Mind

Friends and the City

I have always been a big Sex and the City fan, so when I learnt that my friend's birthday theme was this classic of a show, I knew that it would be fun. There is just something about this show that makes women feel understood. Even though they represent a specific category in society (not… Continue reading Friends and the City

Summer in the City

How about instead of taking a holiday from London, we take a holiday IN London? Here is how I have decided that sometimes, the grass is greener on your own side.

Nothing is Everything

This is the story of how I decided to do nothing. Because I always do everything.

Another Day, Another Year

I have convinced myself that, with each new year, something new & exciting would come along. I mean, as soon as those fireworks shoot into the sky at midnight on New Years Eve, all you hear is, “New year, new me!” The reality however? 75% or more of people give up on their pre-planned resolutions… Continue reading Another Day, Another Year
