Sometimes pampering oneself is very important to feel alive all over again. I learnt this in a very hard way and glad I did. Even getting my nail polished is enough to polish my confidence, treating myself with a ice cream is also good enough to lift my mood.

 My birthday was round the corner and as usual I knew the out come of my birthday as I haven't formally celebrated it for many years now. Thought of being all alone on my birthday made me go through a depression and over the years I have learnt to deal with my own depression too. Last year my birthday was a disaster as I was busy cleaning up the mess of my life on that day and also it was my first birthday after my dad's demise ( I share my birthday with him). This time, I was secretly wishing for a miracle and not the repeat episode of previous year. After wishing this for a while, after sulking about fate of my life sleeping in fetal position, I realised, wishes comes true or miracles happens only when one work towards it. So I decided to pamper myself to make my own birthday special.
Birth Day Pampering- Shopaholic Rants- shopping, salon, vacation

A good shopping,salon treat and a nice holiday- Sounds like a pampering??-This is what I did for my birthday.
I was bored of my look and wanted to change it. More over getting old is not a nice feeling, I realised it after my 25th birthday (asking a lady's age is a bad manners). Lets keep my age crisis rants aside and speak about my B'day pampering.
So I decided to change my look and get a new hair do. I maintained pretty good hair length for many years and wanted to see myself in a short hair.( blame all the celebrities who have gone bob this season). Took an appointment at BOUNCE, Koramangala. Got my hair chopped and every time i saw my lengthy hair on the floor, consoled myself by saying-Its just hair, it will grow back, don't cry, just enjoy the look. I was pretty happy with my new hair do as I got plenty of compliments, My neighbor kid complimented me by saying I look like a barbie doll ( she doesn't know that, its a best compliment I ever heard during my age crisis shit).

After my new hair do, I had a new energy like as if I drank 2-3 energy drink in one go and made my way to do my birthday shopping. This time, I shopped in a People store and I am pretty happy with my shopping, I was basically concentrating on holiday shopping and picked up cloths according to my vacation theme.

I was satisfied with my entire shopping. I picked up a duffle bag which had a contemporary look. This is suppose to be a gym bag but for some reason I didn't feel like using it as gym bag. Colour combination and the prints has a substance and I thought I can play around with this bag. I was right. Check it out in my next post about my vacation and costume post to know more about how I used this new duffle bag.
