Blushing Beauty


Bubble Necklace - WildButterflyBoutique
Random sets of Bangles - OASAP
Earrings - Ardene
Black Vintage Pumps








It's been over a year since I transitioned my blog from a random journal to a full packed outfit diary. Due to it I had an opportunity to see my own changes in how I style my daily outfits to how I present myself. I still remember when first post my outfit post, I was extremely stiff and didn't know what to do. However, after a few posts and your lovely comments/suggestions I slowly was able to open up. Soon after that my style on how I dress to school had definitely changed, I never cared about the way I looked and even now I don't care. However blogging taught me that I don't have to dress a certain way to present myself, but rather just wear pieces I love since they gave me confident. Well, I wanted to quickly put this out there, because this morning when I wore this outfit combo my whole family was extremley suprised with my look. My dad told me that I look extremely confident in this look and I am not going to lie, but I did get a lot of stares from random people. However I wasn't embrassed but I felt proud!! This is one of my biggest fashion risk, since I paired this outfit with two different trends plus both pieces had their own piece of statement. But to my surprise everything worked out as I planned and this is one of my favourite outfit look till this day. So, what do you guys think about this outfit combo and would you ever copy this combo. And also, how would you style your stripe leggings?

I can't wait to read all your comments regarding this topic.
Well, take care everyone and hope you all have a wonderful day.

Regards,

Blossom Forth

Random sets of Bangles (mostly gifted from my sister)
Earrings - Ardene
Black Pants - Ardene
My Regular Black Boots 







One of my readers from @ReAnGaYa sent me this poem on twitter last week 
and for some reason I felt that it worked perfectly with this particular outfit.
~ ~
(By Aufie Zophy)
I am a little purple flower
My petals so extremely small
I 've stood in the grass for many an hour
Enjoying a breeze most of all

But, oh, what happened to my peers! 
Just yesterday, it moved me to tears
While the children of John were playing their game
My peers were trampled to death, what a shame

When just before that, some bigger flowers were damaged
The children were scolded badly by John
But when my brothers were ravaged
It was noticed, sadly, by none

Today, however, I had a reason to smile
A nerd, or so he must be
Looked at this little purplish flower, a while
And took a picture of me

Even if tomorrow, to the worst of my fears
I have to die, as yesterday my peers
I will do so happily
since someone has seen the beauty in me.
~ ~

Thank you so much @ReAnGaYa for sent this poem to me!!
Also, thank you so much to all my lovely readers for all the wonderful comment as well as the support.
I really appreciate it and this week have been extremely hectic so I decided to keep this post simple just like my last few post. On Monday, I will definitely be back with another post for you all!!

Anyways, have a lovely day and enjoy your weekend!!

Love,
Harija Ravi

"Light as a Feather"







Why would you want to be light as a feather?
So you can fly?
Feathers don't fly.
The air pushes them around. 
They have no control.
They tend to thrive only on influence from others.
They don't have their own lives.
They're easily lost in a crowd.
Feathers are short-lived and easily damaged.
They have no strength to defend themselves.
No feather has ever lifted or helped another. 
They are too frail when held.
I like how I'm not as light as a feather,
'Cause there's something TO me... unlike that wisp in the wind.

Rings for Mothers (Featuring Angara.com)

A Mother is one who understands the things you say and do. Who always overlooks your faults and sees the best in you. A Mother is one whose special love inspires you day by day. Who fills your heart with gladness in her warm and thoughtful way; A Mother is all these things and more - the greatest treasure known. And the dearest Mother in the entire world is the one I call my own. 

Mother’s Day is just right around the corner and its fast approaching. Each year I have a hard time find her something special for her, when I was younger I happily made her a handmade card but know as I get older I want to give her something special that she can treasure for the rest of her life. Well, being success and a great human being is one of the best gifts ever to any parent. Other than that, I really want to give her something unique has she has with her for eternity such a dainty ring piece.

 Getting the parent their own pair of Mother’s Rings is an excellent idea. I don’t know about your parents, but my mother loves rings. She mentioned it all the time and this year I came across a website called angara.com.

The CitrusZinger

In the beginning of March, as I was going through my facebook page I came across a neat product called CitrusZinger through the website called elua.com. I am not a huge fan of drinking water, but as soon as I saw the CitrusZinger I tweeted about it. Also, I got in touch with elua.com to get more information about the product and after a few emails; they were sweet enough to send me one.

To use it you need to follow three steps:
1) Press
2) Twist
3) Infuse


So why use lemons?
Lemons are packed like a clown car with nutrients, including vitamin C, B-complex vitamins, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, and fiber. Drink it first thing in the morning, and wait 15 to 30 minutes to have breakfast.

11 Benefits of Lemon Water

1. Gives your immune system a boost.
Vitamin C is like our immune system’s jumper cables, and lemon juice is full of it. The level of vitamin C in your system is one of the first things to plummet when you’re stressed, which is why experts recommended popping extra vitamin C during especially stressful days.

2. Excellent source of potassium.
As already mentioned, lemons are high in potassium, which is good for heart health, as well as brain and nerve function.

3. Aids digestion.
Lemon juice not only encourages healthy digestion by loosening toxins in your digestive tract, it helps to relieve symptoms of indigestion such as heartburn, burping, and bloating.

4. Cleanses your system.
It helps flush out the toxins in your body by enhancing enzyme function, stimulating your liver.

5. Freshens your breath.
It also helps relieve toothaches and gingivitis (say wha?). Because the citric acid can erode tooth enamel, either hold off on brushing your teeth after drinking lemon water or brush your teeth before drinking it.

6. Keeps your skin blemish-free.
The antioxidants in lemon juice help to not only decrease blemishes, but wrinkles too! It can also be applied to scars and age spots to reduce their appearance, and because it’s detoxifying your blood, it will maintain your skin’s radiance.

7. Helps you lose weight.
Lemons contain pectin fiber, which assists in fighting hunger cravings.

8. Reduces inflammation.
If you drink lemon water on a regular basis, it will decrease the acidity in your body, which is where disease states occur. It removes uric acid in your joints, which is one of the main causes of inflammation.

9. Gives you an energy boost.
Lemon juice provides your body with energy when it enters your digestive tract, and it also helps reduce anxiety and depression. 

10. Helps to cut out caffeine.
I didn’t believe this until I tried it, but replacing my morning coffee with a cup of hot lemon water has really done wonders! I feel refreshed, and no longer have to deal with that pesky afternoon crash. Plus, my nerves are thankful.

11. Helps fight viral infections.
Warm lemon water is the most effective way to diminish viral infections and their subsequent sore throats. Plus, with the lemon juice also boosting your immune system, you’ll simultaneously fight off the infection completely.

**I received this information from Health Canada Webpage**


Disclaimer: I was given this CitrusZinger as a gift from elua.com and it did not influence my opinion on the product.

Designer Bio (@_NARCES): NARCES is a Toronto-based Canadian Fashion Label that is designed by Nikki Wirthensohn, NARCES is known for creating a womenswear line that specializes in evening wear. Wirthensohn is a Canadian of Persian heritage who was born in Austria, and grew up in Iran and the U.K. Wirthensohn holds a Master’s degree in Business from Canada and The Netherlands. With NARCES, Wirthensohn combines her very successful business career with a talent and love for fashion design. Reference received from: World MasterCard's Toronto Fashion Week for Fall 2014
NARCES’ Fall 2014 collection is classy, elegant and extremely sexy in a sophistical way without showing too much skin. All the dresses were featured in vibrant colours with different types of unique features such as mesh detailing, velvet trimming, lace and beading/gem embroidery. Each of the styles was also featured in many unique types such as A-Line, Mini, Midi and even Maxi. To be frank, I was speechless during the show and really wish I had a time machine during that particular show so I can watch the whole runway walk again (live).
Three of my favourite pieces from the whole collection are:



After watching NARCES’ show, I really wanted to attend a red carpet event or even a formal gala so I can wear one of NARCES’ dresses. NARCES’ Fall collection wins my votes for the most elegant and sexy outfits for 2014.

Toronto Fashion Week 2014: Anu Raina's Fall Collection

Designer Bio (@Anu_Raina): Anu Raina is a Canadian fashion designer who has been featured in Globe and Mail, CBC, and National Post. She went to London College of Fashion to study B.Tech for women’s wear and also graduated with honours in Sheridan College for the Textile Program. Reference received from: World MasterCard's Toronto Fashion Week for Fall 2014
Anu Raina’s Fall 2014 collection represents the entire city of Toronto in a wearable attire. I am not sure what it was about this particular collection, but as soon the first piece was presented on the stage, I just feel in loved with the whole thing. The collection is not only wearable, but shows the beautiful busy city of Toronto in a form of art work. Rather than those “I love Toronto” tees these pieces simple shows the busy streets such as Spadina and the iconic CN Tower. 
Three of my favourite pieces from the whole collection are the birds on the electric wire shirt, the T.O signal white mini skirt and the C.N Tower dark tone dress.



Even thought, I complain about the weather and the lack of TTC services in Toronto, I am still a huge fan of Toronto!! Anu Raina’s Fall collection wins my votes for the best streetwear for 2014.
