Heidi is one of my most favorite cartoons of all time. I remember rushing home from school, to first switch on the TV to watch Heidi. So recently when I got hold of all the episodes once again, my happiness knew no bounds. Heidi is a story about a young girl in the Swiss Alps, who lives with her grandfather & his dog, Joseph. Orphaned when she was just a baby, Heidi is raised by her aunt who later has to leave her in the care of her grandfather in the mountains.Her grandfather is known to be at odds with the village folk & lives by himself in a cottage high up in the mountains. It is adorable to see how his heart warms up with Heidi's daily talk & activities. With her angelic face & heart of gold, Heidi makes everyone fall in love with her.
There is so much to learn from each episode. Living a life of simplicity with the goats & amidst nature, Heidi shows us the strength of character, of adjusting easily in harsh environments & winning over everyone by pure…
So, recently, I got an opportunity to be a part of a launch of a
brand new salon in Mumbai. Located in the Eros Building in Churchgate,
"Hair Ok Please", is a uni sex salon catering to hair styling, nail care &
makeup (on prior appointments). The quirky name, attracted me & the
decor of the salon, lives up to its name. It is a bright and cute place with
brilliant design with doodled walls. You feel the positive vibes as
soon as you enter. I've put up some pictures from the salon here.
The morning of a brand new first day of a new year is exhilarating. The thought of all the possibilities, adventures and happiness in store leaves one with a myriad of emotions. It always amazes me, that though everything around us is the same when we wake up, the feeling of excitement is unsurpassed. We are charged up to do better, work harder and be happier. Mother Nature shows no signs of change though. The white blankets of snow continue covering the vast expanses of land, the Sun still rises bright as ever and the furry animals are in deep hibernation till Spring. This leaves me thinking, that if only we prepare ourselves to believe that every day or even every month holds better opportunities. Easier said than done! But definitely worth a try! Starting my new year with this thought.. Wishing all you guys, a HAPPY HAPPY NEW YEAR 2018!
