ECHOES – MAGICAL MAY

Time is literally flying, its June already – and do you know what that means?? Just one more month for Game of Thrones season 7 woohoooo 🙂 ❤ and second I would be turning 30 😀 Also RIP to all those New Year Resolutions. All that apart, I welcome you all to my Monthly Favorites series which is a rewind of all the awesome moments in life that made May Magical !!!

Blog Updates
May was a month of relaxing, post the April #AtoZChallenge which I had almost managed to survive the second time. Even though I had jotted down couple of ideas for blog posts I didn’t really get in the head space to actually sit down and blog. Even more so the Project I was working on at work went live and it meant relaxation, no status, no reports, and no defects except for few minor production fixes. I wanted to stay as away as possible from the laptop. But I did something fun in terms of blogging, I posted my first review kind of blog post in the month of May and I kind of liked the whole theme about it. I am planning on doing more posts around product and book reviews in future so that’s a good start. Hoping to have more blog posts up in June.

Work
As I mentioned, the project in which I was leading the quality team went live. I had really worked hard for this cause this was my first project in this new firm that I had joined last year July, plus it was the first time I was working on a retail domain and had to really make my place within the account and kind of make my mark in front of the leadership team. I am so glad it all went well and couldn’t have asked for more. And so after 10 months I now move to another team within the same account and am really looking forward to it, lots to learn still within the retail domain and this project is definitely going to help.

Entertainment
I don’t know what I would have done without Instagram and YouTube. God! There is so much of information out there, so many things to learn am simply amazed. I think give me a laptop a good internet connection and am sorted. I have been watching so many videos on life hacks, howto’s, bujo, photography tips etc and am totally loving it. Do you watch a lot of stuff on YouTube? Do let me know if anything interesting that’s worth watching. Also a lot of movies in many different languages. I think am obsessed about watching movies. 🙂

#fmsphotoaday
One thing that I was totally consistent about was in completing the #fmsphotoaday which is hosted by Fat Mum Slim. I have done this couple of times before also and had enjoyed doing it so that was one thing which kept me occupied this May and am continuing to do it in June as well. I think you guys should also take this up its quite fun. And not just this but Instagram has tons of challenges which is hosted by amazing people. Like the #doodlewithusinjune which is about doodling and the theme is vacation this time, then there is #rockyourhandwriting, #planwithme #photochallenge and lots more. Let me know if you also do a challenge. On that note do check out NJ and Reema’s instagram accounts they are currently doing Poetry challenge this month.

Magical May
The title of this post says Magical May so there had to be something magical about this month and well it certainly is. My first eBook got published this month “Potpourri of Emotions & Moods” in support with Blogchatter which hosted the eBook Carnival post the #AtoZChallenge. Hurray!! (more on this later cause it definitely needs a separate post 😉 )

All in all, May was a wonderful month with lot of learning and fun and happy times. How was your May month, what is that one thing you remember the most from last month, would love to hear from you guys. Hoping June is as beautiful as May for you all and for me. Its monsoons already in Bangalore and the weather has become beautiful ❤

Happy Blogging!!! Live. Love. Laugh ❤ ❤ ❤

ECHOES – MARVELLOUS MAY

I have to say this – ” Time literally flies ” I guess it was only some weeks back that I had celebrated New Year but now it’s already June – that’s like half of 2016 has already passed (RIP to all those New Year Resolutions made 😛 😉 ) . All that apart, welcome all you amazing people to my Monthly Favourites post where i pick up the best moments of the previous month and share it with you guys. And yes the month of MAY was indeed MARVELLOUS. 

Blog updates
You know best when you have been busy in your vacations when your number of blog posts looks like this 😀 😀 😀 Post CalendarIt was like the perfect timing in terms of blogging, after the #AtoZChallenge I felt i was out of words for a good long time. I literally didn’t know what to blog about. Also i had to travel home – Andamans , so blogging was totally ruled out. Somehow I still wanted to keep posting on my blog and hence i picked up the   #FMSPHOTOADAYchallenge hosted by Fat Mum Slim . This was my first ever photo challenge and it was amazing. I did manage to complete my challenge (not literally a photo a day was possible) and i was so so happy 😀 ❤ . Click here to view my Instagram account where i had posted all my pictures. It’s a monthly challenge and June photo challenge has already begun which am not taking up, needed a break from photo challenges 😛 (Excuses you see 😉 )

Home and Vacation
I was home for almost two weeks and it was some personal emergency. No matter what the situation staying at home is always peaceful.

Nothing can beat the feeling of peace and satisfaction that you get when you are home amongst your loved ones. And probably after a good long time i was home for such a long period of stay. 

My vacation was extended post that since all my relatives were here with me in Bangalore. 10 days of fun and enjoyment , showing them places, going to my fav water theme park – Wonderla, spending a day out at Mango Mist resorts, going clubbing with them, dancing my heart out with  my brother ❤ ❤ That was the highlight of the whole vacation for me etc. Since i have been staying alone from a long time having so many people around me was a whole new experience. WhatsApp-Image-20160612 (3)

Finally meeting Darshith – from Smiles here and Smile there 😀
Yes that happened! I finally got to meet Darcie (as we all call him) . Though it was a short meeting it was an awesome feeling to finally get to meet people with whom you have been friends through blogging.

So yeah, my Month of May was a lot of travel and made me be on my toes all the time 😀 And now am back to blogging and getting used to my regular life. #VacationHangovers are the worst 😛 😛 😛

How was your May month?? It has started raining here in Bangalore and the weather has become AMAZINGLY AWESOME !!! It’s almost two weeks since June started and am late in my monthly favourites post but i guess that’s okay. Your blog is your world after all you can paint it with your words as and when you want..correct ?!! 😀 Hope June is as amazing as this year has been.

Yeah go ahead and take a vacation if you haven’t!!! ❤ ❤ ❤

Loads of love !!!
