Welcome To My Office!

I have always wanted a proper bookshelf and a proper writing desk and finally i have got one. I have got it built in the one and only free corner of my bedroom. Ladies and Gents welcome to my very own-mini office in the comfort of my bedroom. Totally chuffed.

So here is my sweet, small and a very specious bookshelf. The photo didn't do justice to it. There are rows of books behind the rows of books that you can see on the shelves in this picture. THAT specious it is. 

Can you spot my novel baby "Fashionably Yours" on the second shelf? Well every morning I wake up and this is the first thing i see. It totally kicks my arse and put me in the mood to work even harder every single day.

And now this is my work station, my writing/beauty desk. On the far left what you can sees is a bowl of nail paints then there is a jar of lipsticks & glosses. The silver bowl in the middle holds all of my pens and collection of pencils. There is a basket for latest magazines. My candles on the mirror tray is the prettiest part of this whole desk. And there is that while pearl box which I had posted on the instagram few days earlier and asked you guys for suggestions regarding what should I use it for. Well i have decided to use it as a memory box.

Honestly since i have got this small office built-in, I'm writing and blogging so much more. I am totally in love with this beauty at the moment.

Hope you enjoyed it.

The Year T'was!

Happy New Year lovelies! I spent my new year’s eve in bed and had a lot of tea while watching endless movies. I am not a party person and love to spend time at home so it was quite a beautiful evening for me on my own. Anyway how was yours?

As the year 2015 kicks in, I would like to take a moment and reflect on the year 2014. It was definitely one of the most challenging years for me and I had the highest number of ups and downs that any person could ever have in one year. As the year 2014 started on quite a sour note for me, I am glad that it ended up on a beautiful note. While the first six months of the year 2014 were especially painful and gruesome for me, mentally and spiritually, my life did the 360 degree turn in the second half of the year and what a change it was man!! I am still in awe!

After trying to make it as a contemporary women fiction writer for five years when I finally started to give up, I got the opportunity of the lifetime (you can read here about it in detail) and I said goodbye to 2014 as a commercial published author! Oh Man! And it became even better as I winded up the year with a 3 hour long radio interview/chat with the RJ Jane over Chennai Live-104.8 FM on 27th of December. Never in my dreams, I imagined getting so much attention and love.

Lastly I want to thank each and everyone who bought my book and gave it so much love and affection. I would always be in your debts.
