That’s my new logo. On popular demand and feedback I tweaked the fonts of #natashamusing and #wednesdaywisdom What do you think?

 

 

Book-Cover- Travel Epiphanies-Child walking in a dry field with Nilgais
That’s my first book Travel Epiphanies available on Amazon, here or here. I am grateful to Ishieta Chopra for teaching me the ropes of Canva three years back and helping design this logo over copious cups of coffee and silly banter.

 

 

Book cover- April Anecdotes- flowers
My second self-published book, is a bunch of short stories. I published a few paper back prints too. Hopefully will upload it on Amazon some day soon. Thanks Nidhi, for helping me with the cover when I struggled, all the way from Zurich. 

 

 

The Look Book

 

Modesty and simplicity is important, yes! Extremely important at all times times. But it is equally important to look good, feel good and be able to present oneself to the world looking good and “well packaged”. 

Sheesh!! You are probably thinking I’m talking about you as a commodity – “well packaged” huh! But isn’t it important for you to look good, to be able to feel good within?

Tell me something, will you? Do you feel good when you look bedraggled, haven’t bathed all day, your hair all tousled and messy, and your arm pits stink? Or rather do you feel better on the days you have showered, are smelling good. and wearing a clean set of clothes? 

Well, I’d say there are days when you want to just shower late, lie in bed reading, listening to music, or binge watching your favourite series, or doing absolutely nothing. But those are only one off days aren’t they? Now, if you belong to the exclusive clan of people who have the privilege of doing so every day, I say you are indeed blessed; or have a life of empty nothingness. If I sound judgemental, forgive me Oh! blimey!

 

Looking Good in the Times of a Pandemic:

Well, this one definitely is good for your self esteem. It helps me big time. I start my day and my writing work bathed and wearing a fresh, clean set of clothes, and every day I try out different ones too. After all why would I want to alternate between two sets, when I have a wardrobe full of clothes? And I have no intentions whatsoever to shop for sometime now.

Thankfully the pandemic has also taught has the value of money and to make do with whatever we have. No unecessary expenditures on shopping for clothes, groceries and other inane stuff that we thought were essential. 

I believe looking good in the times of a pandemic, even if we are staying home is good for our mental and emotional health too.

Do you agree? Or not? Be honest please.

 

What does the Look Book have to do with the cover pages of my Books and #WW Logo?: 

Well, as you all know by now am a very visually inclined person. A lover of words yes, but one who loves images that go with my writing. All my blog posts have tons of images. So much so that I am almost running out of space on my blog, and have had no other choice but to reduce the images I post. And my hosting company has been kind. 

Here are some of the designs I have been nurturing for years (my two books) and currently (the new logo for #WordlessWednesday/#WednesdayWisdom)

I love how all these designs came up. My books wouldn’t be what they are hadn’t it been for the miracles of Canva and some very kind friends who helped me overcome my fear of designing with the easy-to-use Canva. 

I’m hoping to bring back my two babies – my books back to life. Yes, they are self published. But if you know of a publisher who will publish them do send me a message here, or email me at : natashawrites@gmail.com

Till then, nourish the look, nurture yourself, and yes, most importantly nurture your soul. When your soul is nurtured you look like a million bucks. Albeit, the bedraggled, bad hair day! 😉

So get spiffy and get the look book rolling.

Stay hydrated, eat clean, bring on the yoga and meditation and walk the talk.<3

Wrapping up with Roxette’s, “She’s Got the Look” that we loved in college, while some fancy chicks modelled and sashayed to it. It still sounds as fresh as the morning dew when I hear it after so many years. 🙂

Share your thoughts on the look book of your life. Promise I won’t judge you. 🙂 <3

Love, light and laughter! <3

  1. I believe in being well dressed, shiny hair and dainty shoes, some eye liner too. I am wearing stuff when working from home that u would normally only wear to office. And splurging a bit more than usual on my home workout clothes. Life’s guilty pleasures

  2. When I was sent home to work in March, I continued to dress the part – from the waist up! I did wear jeans (and in the summer, shorts) but they were always clean and in good repair. I would never skip a bath or shower, never! I also try to exercise outdoors, although, in the winter, that will become harder. Not sure “I’ve got the look” but I firmly believe how you dress affects your general attitude about life, pandemic or no pandemic.

  3. That adorable pup has the look. I agree that we need to take care of ourselves. It’s so important.

    I hope you had a fabulous Wordless Wednesday, Natasha.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend. ♥

  4. I loved the fresh pink logo already and loved the book cover too.
    The good look i.e hygienic, clean healthy self is a feel-good factor for self-happiness not to show others. Well said nurture your soul that is more important.

  5. Love the book covers, Natasha! Congratulations and hope you can get your other books published too..
    And, love that peppy song!
    Looking good does contribute to overall feel good..totally agree on that one!

    Have a fabulous #WW Natahsa 🙂

  6. The book covers are beautiful. Congratulations on the books Natasha 🙂 I will look up the one on amazon. A clean, fresh and well groomed self, both inside out, is definitely a morale booster. More than for others I think we must do it for ourselves. ……
