Random things to ramble about..



I'm here with another edition of my random rambles after quite a long gap..

  • I wanted a change so in honour of the new year, I decided to go for a makeover for my blog, I kept on thinking as to what exactly should I put up as my banner, then just like that I created this mystery lady in a hat, now I wish I had drawn a more floppy hat because I love those a lot:/ the whole color scheme has changed if you noticed, there's more of the dark wintery colors as compared to the bright summery pastels I had used previously. Do let me know if you like it and whether I should keep it, you know your feedback is all that matters. 
  • I had been feeling really uninspired the past few weeks, the bursts of creativity that I had been thoroughly enjoying seemed to have dwindled and died out, partly because of a uni-stalker turned into a cyber-stalker now, and giving me a hard time online, so now I've decided to do the only thing I can and that is to ignore the A******! His emails go to spam directly because of the filter I've put. 
  • The new year brings with it my Dad's birthday which was on the January 1 and my lovely sister's birthday which is on January 5! Got a warm 100% woollen scarf from Cambridge for my dad in gray and black checks, I forgot to take a picture [silly me!] but I never thought I'd be back to my normal creative self and would be rambling again to you guys<3
  • I have some really exciting makeup hauls coming up soon of my favorite makeup brands, really looking forward to sharing everything with you guys!
  • I got some really cute leopard print tights for Hadiya from NEXT, they were a tad pricey but so worth it, there were just two sizes left one was for 6 months and the one for 3 years I grabbed without a second thought, I would definitely share some pictures with you guys of her wearing them!
  • Taking a break on my Featured Blogger Series. When you do a regular post thing it kinds of keeps you on your toes and you have to make sure to post on time, I'll take a breather until I receive any further emails from bloggers who want to be featured. 
Tell me what you think?
Love

  5. Love reading your rambling posts.I really love your blog's background. This happens to be one of my fav color combinations:)
    I think you should just ignore that jerk and someday he will get the idea.Spamming his mails is a good idea.Don't let a nobody like him put a damper on your posts.
    A very happy belated birthday to your dad and sis.
    Looking forward to reading more of your lovely posts this year.

    Congrats to your Dad and sites for their birthdays. I am a little sad that you will be taking a break from the featured blogger series, but I understand that it can get hectic!

  15. Dear Rakhshan!
    First, congrats on your blog's makeover, and to your love ones' birthdays! You're also a fine drawer, but honestly, I think you may not want to keep that banner for too long, for it's a little bit drab compared to the lovely one you had before. However, it's always good to vary from time to time.
    As a journalist, I deeply understand and identify with you about that ocassional exasperanting lacks of inspiration! Unfortunately, we all have to deal with it, eventually. I suffer a lot because I'm a perfectionist, but I'm aware that I'm still new in blogging and must learn from others like you.
    Beso grande, Maria José

  28. Well I love your new header--it's cute in an understated but fun way. Also I'm a sucker for leopard tights so I can't wait to see what yours like. I am however, sorry to hear you have some cyber-troll bothering you. I'll never understand the mentality of creeps who like to harass people via the internet. I wish they'd all get out of their parents' basements and do something productive with all the time they've got.
    Anyway... also wanted to say thanks for your comment, and of course we can follow each other! Following you now via Bloglovin.
