Pinterest FUN!!!



You all know that I am freak when it comes to the internet, right? I  came across and by chance a website called Pinterest (I don’t know how old it is). It is an online pin board for anything and everything. Most style bloggers I have noticed pin their outfit posts and any other associated elements.
I am slowly getting into the swing of things. I pin what I find interesting, something I would like and also some of the books I have read with a little inspiring notes here and there from people I follow etc.
Speaking of pinning, a friend of mine told me about another website called fashiolista which is more or less like pinterest with a strict niche on fashion and style? Much as you can pin anything and everything on pinterest from DIY works to quotes, on fashiolista, you can only create style looks, pin finds in terms of jewellery, shoes etc.
As I thought about the similarities between these two websites, the differences were unfortunately subtle.
It is a little easier to navigate through pinterest and get the hang of it without much help unlike fashiolista. I am internet and website savvy with skills that impress but when it came to fashiolista; it was literally a fish out of water situation feeling and I did not like it one bit!
I had to ask a friend of mine on how to go about fashiolista. The more she told me, the more I realised it was not somewhere I want to be. I mean, you have to FIRST like other people’s looks and style for some button to pop up so you can create your own which is not me. Why should I like other people’s stuff when I know mine is probably better or at least very creative?
And another thing; you can not simply deactivate your account once you have joined fashiolista because someone might lose their collections or valuables etc. I hardly liked anyone’s stuff, so? The terms should be a little lax, don’t you think? 
It has turned out to be another website I had to add onto my little list of websites I want to leave but have no means!
On the flip side; to join pinterest, you need an invite which is easy to get or at least there is a way around it. I sent myself an invite out of curiosity and voila…I was asked to join in a few days! I am seriously addicted to pinterest! I love checking out people’s pins especially the DIY works, the Refinery29 and also the Gossip Girl pins too. Those are on another level not small stuff for kids!
Check out some of my few pins and the website too and tell me what you think.And of course...FOLLOW ME?

The Power Of Association

One of my best friends sent me this quote and as I went through it; I reflected on the people I surround myself with both family and friends. There are friendships that I let go of during the course of the year and as I did that: I realized that the fewer friends you have, the better. It is said that,”The friends we keep define who we are as a person”…well, I didn’t want to be defined by such people because who they are is not the person that I am.
I am proud of the set of friends that I keep and maintain now because they are good people. They have been there for me in more ways than they could ever know. It is partly due to them I am who I am at the moment and I am happy about it and I appreciate them more. Here goes the quote….
"The less you associate with some people, the more your life will improve. Any time you tolerate mediocrity in others, it increases your mediocrity. An important attribute in successful people is their impatience with negative thinking and negative acting…

I Love Technology.

I am a lover of technology despite the fact that it changes all the time. It is one thing that will never remain constant... Maybe that is why I love it? All the application, software creators put out something new, a few tweaks to their applications and software which is a good thing due to the multitude of competition out there. I always marvel at what comes out to help the user when it comes to software, applications and programs.Recently, I was reading a book using Adobe Reader. Whenever I would start the program to continue with the book, it would bring up a notification for an upgrade to Adobe Reader X which I would unfortunately ignore because; I tend to read when I don't have an internet connection.I decided to bookmark the link so as not to forget about the upgrade. I usually bookmark websites that I visit time to time and find interesting, links I need to check out for software upgrades and installations.After getting an internet subscription, downloading Adobe Reader X …

Obsession: The Fat Doctor.

Most of you know I am a certified TV addict who watches anything and everything.
Currently, I am obsessed with the TV show The Fat Doctor. It is about a certain Doctor at a hospital who gives hope and gastric bypass surgery (cut their stomach to the size of an egg) to the morbidly obese. I found out that now Britain has the largest number of morbidly obese patients and that the number of people who have had this surgery done rose from 600 a year to 100,000. Last time I knew, America had the largest number of morbidly obese citizens with Alabama being the fattest state in America.
It is typically not something I would watch but the stories told by the patients, the state of their health and appearance as they go about their day to day lives is touching. The surprising bit about the show are the different reasons as to why the patients are morbidly obese with each episode – Early puberty, loss, divorce, genetics, environment, depression etc. I find them all valid and beyond questionab…
