Turning 20: Ethnic Affair.

20, a major transition in the process of growing up. It’s funny how life toggles around an unstoppable cycle of aging. I still remember when I was turning thirteen, I acted as if I were asleep, waiting for the clock to tick 12′, so I could call myself a teenager. The excitement of being a year older never ends… On my sixteenth, I hopped and waited for my ‘sweet sixteen’. On my eighteenth, I progressed from a minor to a ‘major’. As I mature into a brewing adult, I giggle at all the times I urged to wake up as a twenty year old girl. And here I am, 20.

19th March 2017, the day I turned into a twenty year old. Well kudos to one of the most fanatic birthdays till date. The birthday bells, surprises, parties, cutting cakes, blowing candles, all are part of the birthday regime.. and most importantly dressing up. This year, dressing up called for a new game, ‘Ethnic’! Like I mentioned in my previous post ‘Westernizing Indian Wear’, decking up in an all put together Indian attire is not my cup of tea. A key to motivating my inner self, is breaking barriers and fears and which better day than your birthday??

Indian wear undoubtedly draws a sparkle to every woman and to walk in an attire is another zone of beauty. The effort to bring the true beauty of a lady, is still a wonder and true inspiration. Be it sarees, lenghas, kurtis or anarkalis, ethnic wear never fails to embrace elegance. The patent effort in the embroidery, weaving, stitching just leaves me awestruck. And to doll up in one of them is mesmerizing.

Emerging as an aspiring blogger splurges immense joy.. joy of learning, joy to grow, and joy to always be unique from the rest. In the panorama of thoughts, I bumped into an idea of featuring my girls in my blog. On my vogue of life, unexpectedly I met a few fellas I’d lend my life to. I called up each of them and fixed up a plan for an ethnic themed photo shoot on my 20th. Here’s to on of the best birthdays ever….
