My love of rings

Guys I'm an absolute sucker for rings. And this photo up here proves it. I have over 150 rings in my collection and somehow everytime I go window shopping I end up adding more and more into my collection.
I have all kinds of rings. Huge rings that go with my bohemian style. Jeweled rings that I like to wear with my suits. Blinged colourful ones to complement more traditional Indian wear. Chunky rings, delicate rings, thumb rings, toe rings.
Anyone else as crazy as me?

Speaking of jewelry, I love this recent trend of chunky watches with lots of colourful bracelets. I wish I could pull this off! Step 1- own a chunky watch. (Coming soon)

And lastly, with wedding mania settling down and things getting better with my fiance and I, I've started looking at wedding related things again in full swing. How cute are these cake toppers?? I want something like that on my cake for sure!

Funny stuff on the internet

Lately I've found so much stuff on the internet that's hilarious and I think pictures say a thousand words. Enjoy!

This one is dedicated to every doctor that works around me- seriously I can't even read your orders people!

 This is dedicated to the wonderful people that loved making racist comments about Miss America earlier this week. Also you people must CLICK HERE to learn how to be a better racist. And CLICK HERE to see what I actually think about you.

I used to blame my fatness on my Asthma meds ALL the time. NEVER AGAIN!!

And this is so brilliant. This is for all of you GOT fans out there! What? You don't know what that is? Game of Thrones, you're welcome love, bless you.

Bridezilla to bride-zombie to bride-broken

I'm not that much of a reader, I wish I was and I honestly don't have ANY time atm. But for people that are all about their bookish nerdiness here's something I found that was really thought provoking!

So I've been a bit off blogging for a bit. I haven't really bothered with it, I haven't had that motivation to go and share something with the world. And it's because all of this wedding stress has really got to me. Last month wedding prep was in full swing but not so much this month.

I've been sad and upset because we've been fighting and arguing lots with so much concerning us and the wedding. Me and my fiance I mean. The wedding is 5 months away and it's already so super stressful between us now.

Did anyone else go through this before their wedding? Please help me, I need all the encouragement I can get right now!!

Without saying anything too personal I can just say that some major exams and wedding planning has really has been driving us nuts! I think when people of two different religions come together there has to be an immense amount of understanding, love and support for one another. I thought we had that, but I feel like traditions, different family beliefs and our elders views are clashing to the point of us falling apart and I'm really heartbroken right now! Especially 'cuz I haven't spoken to him all September :(

Aaaah, anyway I hope ya'll having a restful weekend. I had a wasp sting today that landed me in emergency (so lucky I work there and I'm alive and kicking) 'cuz I'm allergic to the damn things so I'm resting too. God bless xxx

Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won't either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.

10 things to do everyday to make you happy

Now I'm all for being healthy and I've got a routine of my own going recently, but this is just awful!!! I'm glad LiLo realised that she was NOT looking pretty!
I came across this awesome health blog, you've got to check it out. This girl lives in hawaii, she's lost all this weight by eating well and being active and she's got a great fashion sense! Check out this exerpt from her blog!! :)
  1. Listen to your favorite song - Sing it loudly. Let’s be honest, your voice is a combination of Fergie and Jesus and the world deserves to hear it.
  2. Look around and realize how beautiful life is - I know, I was just a can of creamed corn right there, but seriously, it makes a difference. When you look around and really look at your surroundings, you get a newfound appreciation for life, and it never fails to make me smile.
  3. Realize that people are going to try to bring you down, and don’t let them - You are awesome. You are pretty. And you deserve happiness. Don’t let the people who aren’t chill with that make you even a little upset.
  4. Remind yourself that people love you - Because they do, like I said before, you’re awesome and people love awesome people.
  5. Give someone a hug - Hugs are warm and they make both people feel 90% happier and more than likely 120% more awkward if it’s someone you don’t normally hug. It’s great.
  6. Give a stranger a compliment - And not the kind that’s like, “OMG girl dat necklace is mad s’cute where did you get it girl yo style is FABULOUS”. I mean a genuine compliment about the person. Compliments feel a lot more real when it’s from someone who won’t gain anything by saying it to you.
  7. Do something active - Gee I’m sure we all didn’t see that one coming. I’ve said it 1,00 times on this blog and I’ll say it again…. Exercise gives you endorphins, endorphins make you happy, and happy people just don’t shoot their husbands…. They just don’t.
  8. Say yes to something you normally wouldn’t - If you tend to feel “too tired” or “too stressed” to do something that could potentially be fun, just say yes to it and see what happens. It could be amazing, it could be awful and then you have a funny story. Either way you win something.
  9. Help someone without expecting anything in return - This could be as small of a gesture as holding a door open for someone with their hands full. I personally like buying the coffee for the person in line behind me at Starbucks. Whatever it is, help someone without expectation, and you’ll be surprised what happens.
  10. Tell the people you love that you love them - This is probably the hardest thing for me, strangely. I am not an emotional person and expressing my feelings is borderline painful for me. But when you tell people you love them and you get an “I love you” in return, it makes you feel all warm. Kind of like when you pee.

Never use lipgloss, it gets all sticky and flaky anyway. Ugh. I LOVE doing my nails however crap I'm at it!

13. Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or sharpie them in everyday?
Sharpie them in everyday, 'cuz my future mum in law just recently told me I have nice eyebrows :)

Nail polish. Even though I love doing my nails I think I'd miss the makeup more.
