It’s been a hot minute since I shared anything on the blog. The erratic internet connectivity wasn’t letting me and more than that I was savouring life’s different flavours, slowly and mindfully. This pandemic is a blessing in disguise which is allowing me to embrace the old school existence. The household chores do get a little (read extremely) heavy at times but that’s what life is; we can either make a fuss about it or do things happily. So, I’ve been learning about slow living and minimalist lifestyle for about three years now and I’m so glad that I’ve been able to make some conscious life changes which are helping me live mindfully and less on autopilot mode.
Travel! Did you say travel? How does it feel like? Don’t we all feel the same these days? It’s been centuries ago that we travelled anywhere! I mean who’d have ever thought that something like this would occur, it’s so unreal, straight out of a sci-fi movie, isn’t it? Unfortunately, it’s true and all we have right now are the memories of all the adventures and travels that we took once upon a time, sigh! There’s no secret that COVID-19, the global pandemic has turned our lives upside down, upended businesses especially the travel & hospitality industry, shattered economies, made people lose their jobs affecting their livelihood, with countries going back by so many years and what not!
Hey guys! I hope everyone is well and staying healthy. Quarantine has been an adventure to say the least- as I imagine it has been for a lot of people! Also, these days it’s very tempting to sit on the couch all day watching Netflix and binge eating. I think in these difficult times when unchecked and unmonitored things seems pretty convenient , we must take care of our health. A healthy diet is particularly important now than ever before. Regular exercise and proper food will not only help you build immunity but also keep your weight in check.
Recently, I was invited by INIFD (International Institute of Fashion Design) as a Guest Speaker to conduct a Blogging Workshop during their Fashion Technical Week. I remember starting ‘Glam Adventuress” on a whim three years ago when I didn’t really know what exactly was required to start the blog, I just followed my passion, gathered the courage to begin and learnt the rest through the process. And, now three years later, I couldn’t be more happier and proud to be conducting a blogging workshop, sharing my knowledge of the business with the young and creative minds which I learned over the years. It was truly a moment of pride and honour for me. I covered a number of topics at length like what is a blog, what is a domain name, what is hosting, how to register the domain name and get the site self hosted, which is the best platform for blogging, what is a plugin, how to create blog content and make articles interesting. Apart from these, I also covered about social media marketing and strategies to take your blog/business to next level.
Let’s bring your Insta Story game to another level. So I’ve been receiving numerous DM’s and emails regarding how I edit my IG stories. Today I sat down writing about my most favourite apps for you which will not only help you amp up your Instagram game but creating stories would be like a breeze! IG stories were introduced in August 2016 and it has become insanely popular and a rage ever since. It’s simply because they provide such a diverse and interesting element in the whole story thing making it more interactive, creative and engaging. Adding nice fonts, collages, animations, videos, photos, borders on the same screen making your posts stand out.
Now who wouldn’t want to be an award-winning blogger? Though I’ve received many awards in my life but to get one for my blog ‘Glam Adventuress’ that too from someone who is already a known brand, rather among the Alma maters of fashion and designing is what made this one special. So one afternoon I was approached by INIFD (International Institute Of Fashion Designing) saying that their jury had shortlisted ‘Glam Adventuress’ for the Style Icon Awards 2019. I was quite ecstatic as getting recognised for something you are passionate about is so exciting, isnt’t it?
