College and Budget!

Sunday, June 12, 2016

College is a frantic time. All those classes, clubs, events, weekends, friends, last minute projects and then there is maxing out credit cards or being totally broke only after half the month. That's why it's always smarter to organize the budget and work on saving up. Here are a few tips from me but to really know the tricks, it's better to learn it from the pros like Credit Card Insider who are absolute experts at handling credit cards and credits. When life throws college at you, you suddenly feel stripped off all the privileges and real life smacking right at your face, Credit Card Insider has many recommendations for student credit cards and will help you pick out the perfect card to go through this "traumatic" few months.

Save first, then spend.
This has been the most helpful tip I ever came across. Most people save what is left behind after they spend but the wiser way is to first have a realistic saving and then make a reasonable budget with what is left.
Make a monthly budget.
This is very obvious. I'm still working on the art of staying withing the limit but this is one of best ways to save. I heard somewhere that it is always better to plan in such a way that the budget is lower than expected so that, even if you exceed, you stay within a "happy" budget.

Gather more friends for a night out.
Now, since we're talking about college, this is by far my tried, tested and approved formula. It's always nice to have a large group to go out with since then, splitting the bill is easier on your pocket. One might think, the ratio is always same, but trust me! It's not. You might be surprised how much with the amount and variety you get when you start sharing. ;)

Understand the difference between "needs" and "wants".
College is a time when even the princesses have barely make it through sometimes(financially). To make it easier, learn to prioritize things. Learn to differentiate between needs and wants, You don't wanna spend money on a couple of lipstick that you just to add to your collection and miss out on that trip you are planning for this summer,

Walk a lot. 
I love walking, so, it's always easier for me. Walking will help you to relief stress and also will be a nice calming workout and hey! you're saving bucks to!

Volunteer for campus events/clubs for free food.
A straight away example for this one, I was working for a club this semester and guess what on the big 3 day event it organised, the members got catered free food for the whole three days and I ended up getting a promotion. 

Track, do the math and revise.
Budgeting doesn't come easy. It is an art. So, if you faulter the first time, learn where you went wrong, where you can cut off and where you need to spend more and soon  enough, you'll be a pro at it.


The Hunt : Part #1

Tuesday, June 07, 2016

Lately, I have been really obsessed with nude/brown-ish palette for makeup and hence, I have been looking out for the perfect brown lipstick for my skin tone. So, the first time I ordered, I received something which was orange with a little shimmer. Nah! So, this time, I hand picked this one. It's from Faces and the shade is "Honey Lust". It was actually very cheap compared to how much makeup actually costs. I got it for around Rs 175 that under $3 (US). I am not sure this is the shade that I want but it's not bad. It's nice for a sunny day if I was very "light" makeup. I wanted a darker shade though and I am not too sure if I can "mattify"it with some powder. But all in all, it's a nice product for the price if this is the shade you are looking for.


Summer Challenge!

Saturday, June 04, 2016

So, what's up guys?
I'm just so hyped about getting something done this summer because every holiday that I am back home, I just spend my days lazing on my bed so, this time hopefully, I'll get a thing or two done. So, firstly, I am thinking of doing the Lauren Conrad's "30 Day Ab Challenge", I decided that since I ALWAYS plan on a healthier holiday, why not incorporate a  mini challenge to it to have mini everyday goals to look forward to. Today was my first day and it was easy, but the way it progresses, I am a little worried about the latter days. :P

Also, the next challenge is something I'd love to try but, given my poor art skills, I'm having double thoughts about it. 

Guys, let me know if there are any such interesting challenges(?) that you know because I'd love to try them.

Thank You.


My Childhood Sweethearts ♥

Thursday, June 02, 2016

It'd be a lie if I say that the Olsen twins haven't been my longest love affair. My childhood is actually just Olsen twins. Grew up reading "Two of a Kind","Sweet 16" and all of that book. It's a shame I couldn't read all of their books but, my childhood was amazing and thanks to them. I somehow feel I am what I am and most of the reason is them and I love that part of me. ♥

There are very few people that I adore at this level which is almost 'worship'. The other two are Jared Leto and Taylor Swift. I somehow feel, no matter how they are, who they are, they are all GENIUSES! And wow man wow! they are so stark beautiful ♥
