palatino;”>A GREAT FRIEND:

palatino;”>No. I do not by the farthest stretch of my imagination mean you should stick to one colour or one perfume, but if you don’t know yet, it’s time to figure out your favourites. I for one am the ‘Aquatic/ Floral’ girl – Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey for Women being my signature scent (the only exception to this rule in years and years has been Flora by Gucci ). While I love experimenting with lipstick my go to eachday everyday is MAC LipGlass Lychee Luxe . So are you asking yourself this yet?? What’s your favourite Lip colour or Perfume? (Ps: Do read up on the Fragrance Wheel which defines Fragrance Categories … Interesting Read).

palatino;”>If you’re in your 30’s chances are you have your own house, or room, or nook or some tiny little space on this planet you can take the liberty of calling yours. If you have this space, I trust it’s designed/ decorated signature you but if not, it’s time to claim your little spot.

palatino;”>I love dressing up, I love changing my look but for every day that I wake up and face the world I have a set of jewelry including my wedding and engagement ring, a few random bangles stack which remind me of various occasions in my life they’ve been given to me (mostly by La’ Hubs) and a few other trinkets that I never leave home without. Infact, I’m so used to wearing these that it bothers me when I am not. If you’re in your 30’s some of your milestones are probably marked by bling that you wear, but if not it’s always a good time to start. Invest in a piece that stays with you.

palatino;”>Oh you can act as young as you want, but really start taking care of your body. Exercise , Drink Milk, Take Vitamins, Sleep Well. Basically stop being in denial and start focusing on keeping yourself healthy and happy. Generally eating better and more informed is the way to go, try different cuisines see what works for you, manage your smoking or drinking… Basically have fun, but be good to yourself while you’re at it.


palatino;”>Yep, by now you should have the watch that defines you. Unfortunately I still don’t have enough to spare for a Ballon Bleu de Cartier but well atleast I know what I want 🙂 If you’re lucky enough you should have a watch that defines you. If not, don’t forget what Patek Phillipe says ‘You never really own a Patek Phillipe, you merely take care of it for the next generation’.

palatino;”>Pick a place you’ve never gone before and just go! Budget, Backpack, Extravagant, Luxurious whatever your style is, your 30s should be marked with cities and place you’ve never been before. Whether it’s in your city, in your country or somewhere on the globe. Be brave and step out of your shell.

palatino;”>Give yourself time before you go to bed. The right kind of face wash, night cream (a concept fairly alien to me till a few months ago), winding down, some music (not of the jhatka matka variety) and the works… basically, acknowledge your own importance and let yourself be the center of your world – pamper and spoil yourself to nth. After all, someone once said to me, ‘We only live once’.
