Hosteller Can Understand The Bitterness & Sweetness

‘Hostels are fun’. It’s like a roller coaster ride to those who have spent most of their time living in either PGs or hostels. We don’t even realize how it naturally becomes our second home after our parent’s home. Whatever time we spent, friends we make and the kind of experience we witness living at hostels cannot be shared in words.

Staying in the hostel slowly becomes your life for which you become addicted to. It is the place where you cherish some beautiful moments with your lovey-dovey friends within the four walls of the building for the rest of your life.

Let me relieve some of your beautiful hostel life memories that you would be able to relate to.

1. Maggi becomes your all-time survivor

A hosteller can better understand the importance of Maggi more than anything else. We can say that it is our lifeline. It is the only thing that satisfies our midnight hunger cravings. We become sort of experts in cooking Maggi while being in a hostel and we are proud to say that.

2. You Become Chai-holics

Tea is the only beverage that we rely on during the hostel days. You become such a tea lover that you are familiar with almost all the famous tea points around your hostel.

3. You believe in partying all night

Literally, we don’t even realize how “we work hard and party harder” becomes our all-time favourite party anthem. All night, playing those amplifiers on top of the voice, dancing our shoes on just like there is no tomorrow.

4. You become insomniac

At the hostel, you stay with so many people around you that you can’t even think of peaceful sleep. I mean, how you can sleep when you have friends all over at your place and they feel like partying for no reason.

And, then we end up sleeping the next day during our lectures. Haha! That’s true! Most of us have experienced this beautiful feeling when we enjoyed our hostel life.

5. Loose pajamas and flip flops become your new dress code

No one literally cares what you are wearing. You feel most comfortable in your loose pajamas, camisoles and those funky panda flip flops. This becomes our favourite dress code that we do not bother wearing in college too.

6. You believe in “Sab Moh Maya Hai” when running short of cash

Common everyone knows that you don’t have that much to spend on these luxury shit knowing the condition of your purse at the month end. Maggi, cold drinks, milk and cakes become a kind of luxury to you at that time.

7. Wi-Fi becomes your everything after Maggi

A hosteller only knows the importance of Maggi and ya next thing, WI-FI without which we can’t live even a single day. Whenever your loved ones (Your BFFs roommates) are not around, you rely completely on WI-Fi for watching your favourite series online or calling your roomies when you are home alone.

I know you must be feeling a lot better and quite nostalgic after reading this. Hostel life makes us learn so much that we can never have this kind of experience anywhere else.

After a point in time when life seems to be settled and the things that you once desired has been accomplished you try to search for new horizons. One such new horizon was. It was only a year ago that I started this journey and now the journey has become a part of my existence.

7 Daily Life Things That We Are Doing are Responsible For Destroying Our Planet And Probably We Don’t Realize

Things That Are Responsible For Destroying Our Planet

It’s you or someone else, we might have one or many bad habits in general which are causing harm to the environment directly or indirectly. We generally do not think that sources of energy that we use in our daily lives are so important that we cannot afford to live even a single day without them. Yes, I am talking about water, electricity and similar things which are equally important for our daily survival.

But most of us nowadays are exploiting them instead of properly using them and which causes a huge difference in the environment we live in. Let’s take a pledge today that we will try to preserve our environment in every way we can by improving our bad habits which we do on a regular basis. Just to recall, here

I am listing some of the everyday mistakes which you do and which is causing great harm to the environment and we need to stop right away to save our environment.

1. Leaving the Lights On before coming out of the room

Almost every one of us has this bad habit of not switching off the lights when we are not using it. And, do you have any idea that doing these silly mistakes costs so much as it affects our environment very badly that we can’t even imagine.

If you are in a regular habit of doing this, what you can do is you can place sticky notes next to the switch lights in your room so that it reminds you every time when you are about to leave your room.

2. Boiling the Water in Hot Kettle

Boiling water in kettle seems so easy but are you familiar that boiling a small amount of water in a kettle consumes a lot of power which is enough to light up your whole house.

In place of such electricity consuming kettles, you can make use of kettles which consumes less amount of electricity to run which will in turn help to reduce energy usage and will help save our environment too.

3. Eating Lots of Farmed Meat

You might be meat lover and you are not in a mood in a mood t become a vegan. But if you are eating lots of farmed meat then you are supporting an incredibly environmentally damaging industry.

Many acres of rainforest are cleared up to grow soy crops to feed a huge number of cattle and you might be familiar that overgrazing by these cattle on these grains ground is a major reason for global soil depletion and source of climate pollution. So, you might consider becoming a vegan if you want to save the environment.

4. Leaving the Tap Running

Whether you are washing your dirty dishes or brushing your teeth, leaving a tap running is a very common mistake which you do on a daily basis, and doing this wastes a huge amount of water.

It may seem like how much water you can save like this but remember taking small steps will help you to make a bigger difference which will help save our environment.

5. Smoking Cigarettes

Smoking Hukka and cigarettes have become a trend in metro cities. But do you know that cigarettes that you smoke are causing so much harm to our environment as the smoke releases toxic chemicals into the air? So, if you want to preserve the environment, ‘Quit Smoking’.

6. Using Plastic Bags

We can’t even imagine moving out of a grocery store without carrying plastic bags. Even we are familiar with the fact that plastic bags are quite harmful to our health and environment too but still, we can’t give up using these plastic bags.

5 Simple Tricks for a Daily "Runway" Look

When it comes to fashion, trends seem to come and go almost overnight, which makes it incredibly hard to curate a personal style that will withstand the test of time. Yet, it seems like models, bloggers and fashionistas always look incredibly fashionable, regardless of trends and fads, without even putting much thought and effort into their outfits.

The truth is that the secret to their look boils down to simplicity, elegance and a couple of statement investment pieces that just never go out of style.

Here are the top five things you should consider when trying to achieve that effortlessly stylish “runway” look:

1. Luxurious designer bags

Apart from being extremely practical and carrying everything you may need on an everyday basis, handbags also represent a style statement that can truly make or break any outfit. Considering their durability, versatility and undeniably stylish and timeless design, the best idea might be to invest in a truly classic handbag, such as a Birkin or a Chanel flap bag, which are always on trend and make for the perfect “runway” pieces.

Incredibly chic and so versatile they can be worn with anything from a casual outfit to a business professional look, a designer handbag is an ideal accessory for instantly elevating any outfit and making you look sleek, polished and fashionable without much effort.

2. Amazing Valentino shoes

No outfit is really complete without a great pair of shoes that pull the whole look together. While they come in different shapes, styles and designs, it is always best to invest in a pair of classic designer shoes that are so versatile they will undoubtedly become your next wardrobe staple, instead of following the latest trends and fads that will be forgotten as soon as the next season.

With their incredibly sleek and distinctive studded design, amazing Valentino shoes are an instantly recognizable and highly fashionable designer piece you should add to your shoe collection immediately.

Stylish, versatile and extremely comfortable, Valentino shoes are a must-have item for completing any chic “runway” look.

3. Trendy pair of sunglasses

A lot easier to put on than eye makeup, sunglasses are the perfect accessory that easily takes any outfit to the next level and makes the whole look seem as though it’s fresh off the runway. Even on those days when you simply can’t muster the strength to put on even a dab of concealer, sunglasses will be there to help you look chic and put-together.

Besides protecting your eyes from harmful sun rays, if you invest in a high-quality pair of sunglasses, such as Ray-Ban, Prada or Celine, in a classic shape and a neutral colour that best suits your wardrobe palette, you will have the perfect accessory for years to come that will always help you look polished, stylish and expensive.

4. Elegant neutral tones

Runway

Even though black has always been the go-to colour for achieving elegant and highly fashionable looks, the recent years have seen a rise in popularity when it comes to all sorts of neutral tones, especially shades of beige, taupe, cream and tan.

From classic Burberry trench coats to trendy jumpsuits and two-piece sets, a wide array of these subtle sandy tones were seen all over the runways of the fashion capitals of the world.

And, considering the number of models, bloggers and fashionistas opting for chic head to toe beige outfits, it is safe to say that beige truly is the new black.

5. Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity

While there are so many accessories you can choose from to embellish any look, take a page from the models’ book and try to realize that less really is more. There is no need for over the top, oversized jewellery that draws the eye and overpowers your whole look – true elegance lies in simplicity.

Dainty minimalistic jewellery, a statement watch or even a designer logo brooch are all tiny details that go a long way towards completing your outfit and making you look incredibly chic and stylish.

Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity

From elegant tones and classic designs to the art of wearing clothing, these amazing tips will help you look incredible every day and give you the opportunity to live your most stylish life.

South Africa celebrates its New Year eve in a totally different manner when compared to us. To ring in the New Year, people throw away their old furniture out of the window into the streets below.

However, this custom is monitored by police forces carefully to make sure nobody gets hurt when they celebrate this tradition.

7. Getting bitten by bullet ants, Brazil

In the Brazilian tribe of Sateré-Mawé, when a boy becomes matured, they are asked to perform a traditional dance while wearing gloves filled with lots of bullet ants.

This particular ceremony is very challenging and a difficult one because the bite of a bullet ant is one of the most painful insect bites in the world that is even hard to imagine.
