Hug Your Dad

Hug Your Dad


“This father’s day, I am expressing my love towards my dad by participating in the #HugYourDad activity at BlogAdda in association with Vicks.”


It gives me immense pleasure to write this blog because even words would be less to explain my DAD's importance in my life.A beautiful quote which I like and believe in "Some people don’t believe in Heroes. They’ve never met my DAD." as true by its words my Dad is always my hero. My father taught me the values in my childhood which I follow till now and its the foundation he laid on which I build my building of my Life. In my Childhood I used to wait for my Dad to come back from office and when he finally arrives I will run to the door and give him a big hug. He used to tell me, my Hug would vanish all his tensions. Dad made me understood that journey of life is not easy sometimes you alone have to face failure that does not mean to believe it as a end he taught me to learn from the failure and fight back for a new beginning.Even though we live in 21st century there is always some boundaries for girls but my Dad never let that boundaries to stop me from dreaming. My Dad gave me wings to my DREAMS. 

As I grow up I may out grow my Dad's Lap but I know I will never outgrow his Heart. My priorities might change as I grow up but for him I am his first priority. This doesn't mean that I don't love my mother the truth is my mother gave me a Life but my Dad taught me how to make that life fruitful. Some wise men said "Certain is it that there is no kind of affection so purely angelic as of a father to a daughter." Its true because at any time when you get hurt you will prefer Dad's shoulders to cry on. Even though father scolds you in your mistakes he too get hurt while scolding. He loves you so much that he will sacrifice everything for your happiness. Your Dad is the one who can read your face when you are fooling everybody in the World. He is the only person who knows the reason of your silence. The best way to thank him him would be a hug because it has feeling which is more important than your words.

People loves titles in their name like Doctor, Professor and Engineer etc,but my dad loves only one title to be called him by my name. He only wishes that I should always be his Pride. He taught me we should give more priority to family than anything else because you can make money later but not memories. Memories lies in small happy moments with friends, family and relatives. Because of him I am always Daddy's little girl even though I am big enough to make my own decisions but I need his agreement to it. I  don't know much about the World but know one thing even though my Dad was not a King but he treated me as a Princess. This does not mean that he pampers me all the time and fulfill all my wishes but even though he don't necessarily agree with some of the things I do but I understand his intention would be about my good. As Dad always want me to be happy. For me my Dad is best because " He taught me the lesson of life like a Teacher, when I feel alone he supports me like a Friend, when I do wrong he will be my Path-maker and he will be with me all time like a Shadow."

A hug is a handshake from the heart. It is rightly said, hug is the best medicine you can give your loved ones during any situation whether in happiness or when someone is depressed to support them that they are not alone. I still remember the last time I hugged my Dad when I was depressed of my 12th result when everyone was scolding me that you wasted your Dad's money in Coaching and unnecessary things, he hugged me and told me leave about the money, I know you have tried and its okay for me even if you have not brought 90% marks because more than anybody else I know what you are capable of so don't worry. Opportunities are always there knocking if you lost once think about the other one. When everything breaks down and I feel like giving up, my Dad's hug gives me strength to rise again. It is rightly said by someone "A dad is someone who hugs you when you cry, scolds you when you break the rules, shines with pride when you succeed, and has faith in you even when you fail."

My Expertise - Inspired by articles on the Reward me

My Expertise - Inspired by articles on the Reward me 


I am participating in the ‘Ready For Rewards’ activity for Rewardme in association with BlogAdda.


=> Beauty
Do it yourself, also known as DIY, is the method of building, modifying, or repairing something without the aid of experts or professionals. When you can’t go to the nail salon you need to be creative and do your nails with DIY Nail Art such as Musical Notes Nail Art. Musical Notes Nail Art is a nail design idea, very easy to make.

=> Skin Care
When its about Skin care one of the best way to clear the skin is by using Aloe Vera. Aloe Vera is also known as the ‘Plant of Immortality' since it was used for its healing properties. It is strange but a fact that it is a most commonly used ingredient in herbal concoctions, medicines and cosmetics. Aloe Vera gel has anti-microbial properties making it ideal to treat acne and pimples.It is medicinally also used to treat sun burns, insect bites, eczema, cuts and wounds.For clear skin you need to keep your skin well moisturized and Aloe Vera is an excellent moisturizer for skin.



=> Hair Care
There are many hair care home remedies such as :-
1) Egg can be used as a conditioner.If you have problems like dry or brittle hair then you should use egg whites to moisturize your hair. 
2) Beer treatment is a popular remedy. For convenience to apply in hair place beer into a spray bottle.
3) Use coconut or olive oil as it is best for long and shiny hair.

=> Fashion Tips
Outfits make up your personality. It is always not necessary to buy expensive outfits but by  mix up your fashion you can also make your own style statement by simple DIY such as elbow patches.You can give a new look to your old sweaters by easy steps using DIY. The best part about these DIY crafts is that you can use any material you want for the patches. Wear elbow patches and be fashionable during winter season.

=> Home Décor
Do you know that it takes only few minutes to keep the house clean if all the members in the house devote their pocket time to keep the things back at places and make less mess of things by taking only necessary thing at a time rather than to make a pile of things. This is strange but true because after reading the articles of Rewardme I took care of these small things and it made even my Mom happy since my this little act  helped her in keeping the house clean. First thing we should understand to keep the house clean is that we have ample of time so keeping things back at places not only help the home-maker but we ourselves as the home belongs to all the members of the house not only the home-maker duty is to keep the house clean.The second thing is that wall art is not as such difficult that only a expertise could do it instead we can save that money by our own creativity as some wise men said "Walls are your blank canvas".



=> Family
Family is the most important of all but sometimes we give them the least importance. As some wise men said "The love of family and the admiration of friends is much more important than wealth and privilege." For a happy family we must take care of many things such as to eat dinner together with a family, to keep family in first priority, to talk calmly with everyone, put family before friends and to control your anger. These may find difficult due to our busy schedule but we should always remember that without a family, man alone in the world, trembles with the cold.

I would suggest all the readers to read the articles of Rewardme as it was worth reading for me hope you will also find these fruitful.

Best from Reward me

Best from Reward me

I am participating in the ‘Ready For Rewards’ activity for Rewardme in association with BlogAdda.


=> Beauty
If you've got cool nails, you wake up and you're like, 'Oh, I'm happy now.' Beauty article "At Your Finger Tips With DIY Nail Art" help you by simple nail art steps  to recreate the same salon magic right at home such as French Manicure Twist, Colour Code, For Effect, Dots & Stripes, Bling It On, Braids, Glitter Gradients, and Go Digital. The easiest one is Dots and stripes as they are simple yet elegant. Mix and match colours and create stripes and dots using a thin brush. You can even connect the dots to create flowers or join the stripes to make patterns of your own.


=> Skin Care
Skin problems are common to everyone especially "Blackheads". We ruin most of our money for solutions related to skin problem whether in the form of skin cream or visiting skin specialist. I find a homely solution for Blackheads in a article of Rewardme site that is "Top 5 Ways to Get Rid Of Blackheads at Home" from the section Skin Care which I found to be very useful as it is cost-efficient as well as home remedy so no side-effects. 

=> Hair Care
Damage hair would make you lose your confidence. Rescuing the damaged hair is a major concern of most of the people. In Rewardme site I find a quick solution to this problem by a article"Quick Tips to Fix Damaged Hair" from the section Hair Care. Using heat tools such as curling irons and blow dryers can zap the moisture right out of your hair. A deep conditioning treatment revitalizes hair and does more than simply clean your locks. Minimize Hair Washing. Too-frequent washing can actually strip the hair of essential oils and lead to chronic dryness.


=> Fashion Tips
The most common trend in outfits is to mix up your fashion, this not only looks cool but also helps in making your own style statement. In Rewardme site from the section Fashion I find an article which consists of different ways to master the stole whether it is a  basic wrap or arranged wrap. It is strange but true that with a stole, you can turn a simple T-shirt into a fashion statement! Stoles allow you to have fun creating new looks without having to buy new clothes, making them a must-have accessory.

=> Home Décor
We all know it is difficult to keep the House Look Clean because as many number of people are in house that many number of disaster they make in house depending on their nature. Home Décor is one of the most time consuming because it reflects your creativity. I find two articles that is "10 Bright Ideas For Brighter Walls" and "10 Simple Ways to Make Your House Look Cleaner Every Day" in Rewardme site from the section Home which I found to be very useful and worth trying. These articles I found to be helpful as I am also a big disaster to my Mom in keeping my house clean. In this article simple ways are given to keep the house clean as well as ideas for brighter walls which helps me in making a good impression in front of Mom as well as cool her anger when I make mistakes sometimes.



=> Family
In our daily life we became so busy in making money that for work we give the maximum priority than family. This imbalance not only hinder our relationships but also lead us to became a irritated and depressed person.Learning to manage time effectively is essential for all of us. Each of us has the same number of hours to work with but some people know how to manage it better. Yes, work is important and working hard will probably get you closer to your professional goals faster, but at what cost? Does we would be happy if our dreams cost us to lose a happy family. Through Reward Me article "8 Ways To A Work-Life Balance" help me to manage my time between family and work.



It is a truth that RewardMe serves as my best ally as it helped me to help my Mom and to have a strong influence on people who visit my home whether it is my relative, my neighbor or my friend as well as to balance my Life.

ENERGIZING LIFE WITH MAX FRESH MOVE

ENERGIZING LIFE WITH  MAX FRESH MOVE 


I am blogging for #MaxFreshMove activity at BlogAdda.com. Are you?


For a energizing start we need freshness. As some wise men said "Youth is not a time of life; it is the freshness of the deep springs of life." When its about Youth we could imagine the situation would be charged with energy when stylish Allu Arjun’s sensational moves and beautiful Anushka Manchanda’s magical voice come together as they both stole millions of Hearts especially Youngsters. As all his fans know that Allu Arjun is not only a Stylish Star but a great Dancer too by his genuine acting he made most of the South Indians as his fan, for many he is an inspiration likewise Anushka Manchanda she formed the first Indian pop girl band, Is it not enough for a girl to be proud about ? Apart from this the words that describe her the best is Playback singer, songwriter, model,VJ and actress. Allu Arjun and Anushka Manchanda both are best in their field when #MaxFreshMove bring them both to do an entwined act of music and dance would make everyone crazy there is no doubt in that.

I think music in itself is healing.Where words fail, music speaks. It's an explosive expression of humanity. It's something we are all touched by.Music is the strongest form of magic.No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music where as The dance can reveal everything mysterious that is hidden in music. Dance is the hidden language of the soul. When both these dance and music are entwined no one can stop themselves especially when Actor Allu Arjun is performing the dance and Pop-star Anushka Manchanda is singing. Can you resist yourself when these stars are performing ?

Allu Arjun’s sensational moves and Anushka Manchanda’s magical voice come together

Ever thought of Allu Arjun breaking the barriers of Tollywood and Kollywood and opening the gates of Bollywood with ABCD-2 and our heart throbbing , strong Pop-star, winner of Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi Anushka Manchanda who once proved us by her song " Na jaane kahan se aya hai " which is so popular that now also it is counted in the list of evergreen songs and she is back with her Discography Bezubaan Phir Se in ABCD-2. When they both share the same platform the whole world would dance with them. As you all know after playing kid artist in Vijetha then Allu Arjun started his career as a dancer in Daddy. Before Anushka Manchanda turned 18 she became a brand of musician who is fiercely individualistic and ever evolving . They both put a strong impression on public not only as an actor and an actress but also as a Dancer and a Singer.

To add freshness and jazz up into everyone's life by busting some dance moves of Allu Arjun and unwinding music of Anushka Manchanda with #MaxFreshMove would leave audiences gasping at their high energy performance. The power packed presentation of these stars make the event a memorable for all the viewers.

The Finish Line

The Finish Line 

This post is a part of Write Over the Weekend, an initiative for Indian Bloggers by BlogAdda. 

We all agree that we are running a race with different pace and we all are having different finish line. The finish line may depend on us, in our ambition and our desires. For a athlete finish line may be to break earlier record whereas for a student the finish line may be to score more than 80% this means finish line vary person to person and the finish line is decided by a person. To succeed one need to run a race but to run a race you need a finish line, it is a desire or a ambition of a person.

To reach finish line does not mean you are the winner, for instance in a racing competition there be hundreds of participants out of which one may be the winner. It does not mean other are looser or they have not touched the finish line. Looser are one who does not trust in himself and run a race  halfheartedly due to family, friends or for living but his heart always knows he will not win. In a race there are many looser but one winner apart from this there are one more category that is not a winner but nor a looser too. These people have talent, passion and determination they also reach the finish line like winner but as said by a wise man " In a race there is only one winner". These people never give up they try harder and harder till they add "umph" to their "try" to make it "triumph".

The first desire for a race is always to reach the finish line that is the determination of finish line is the first step of your thousand miles journey to success. You may find it strange but it is true finish line is the first step for some and the last step for many because some has the desire to achieve more so they think as the first step and some it may be last step because they think that their only desire was to win this race in which they succeed so they end that race. If you succeed to reach the finish line even though you are not the winner of that race you should be happy because they are many who give up the mid-way, compared to them you are far better than them.

Always remember there are many who criticize if you are not a winner but never let your heart to fail because the world stands with the winner but the winner rises from a looser who tried hard to reach his finish line before anyone. There are many by luck reach the finish line before anyone whom the world praises but the looser who tried hard and win the race before anyone the world respects along with praises. You may not have succeed to reach the finish line first to be the winner but your Never Give Up attitude never let you to fail to touch the finish line. Everything starts with a belief  because if you trust in yourself  with an untiring heart to do hard-work then someday even your bad luck would turn to your good-luck and no one can stop you from reaching your finish before anyone else. As someone said "It will take time, effort, will power, sacrifice and dedication but you have to promise yourself to reach the finish line."
