ECHOES – Just like that JUNE

Woohooo, we have successfully completed half a year of 2016 officially and some really big things that got over like #AtoZChallenge, #GameofThrones Season 6 ( 😛 it’s tough to wait for another year) , long vacation, lots of blogging and reading and meeting amazing bloggers in person 😀

So here I am with yet another Monthly Favorites section of mine called ECHOES and June for me was JUST LIKE THAT. ( It was good, am saving the adjective starting with J for next month July, so if you have any suggestion let me know so that I can update the title of this month 😛 )

Blog updates
Yes after almost not making any posts (not even 5 😦 ) in the month of May, I finally managed to get back on track and publish around 10 posts which I know I know is a lot less as far as my 2016 Blogging Resolution was but then 10 is better than 5 😀 So it’s all good people. 😀 In fact I was actually planning on making some changes to my blog considering the fact that my first blog anniversary is almost around the corner like number of posts a month, new topics to be covered, new sections to be added/updated, scheduling my posts, taking part in guest blog etc. Yeah so you can see many new topics and things happening on my blog. Wish me luck 😀

Work getting published – What better than this
June as a month was awesome in terms of my work being acknowledged by blogging communities and it was really overwhelming and encouraging and inspiring for a new blogger like me. Some of my work got published on the below pages. Please do check them out. I am trying to now work on exclusive content moving forward giving me more chance to broaden my horizons in terms of writing.

#TTPicks – Tangy Tuesday on Blog Adda for the Companion post TTPicks

Lot of Doodles and Zentangles
Ohh yes nothing new for you guys am sure now, I have been doodling and doing zentangles like non stop now. It’s seriously addictive. Thanks to the abundance of inspiration and source as Internet. It’s so helpful for amateurs like us to learn and grow not just one particular style or hobby but everything under the sky is there over the net all we need is the passion to learn. I am trying different styles botanical, flowers, geometrical patterns, lines, cartoons etc. 😀 #arttherapy you see 😛

Instagram is the coolest thing ever
I have been using Instagram for quite sometime now but the last one month has really helped me understand the power of #hashtags. Earlier i used to upload pics (of my drawings) and people on my contact list used to like and comment them limiting my scope. But lately after using decent and good hashtags appropriate for my artwork, i have got amazing visit from so many people all over the world.

Stats of my Instagram (it’s just the beginning)Hashtag

More than getting likes and comments and followers it’s more like getting to know so many other amazing people out there who share the same interest and passion as yours. I came across some amazing instagrammers whom i now follow religiously and have learned a lot from them ❤ ❤ If you have a business, or a passion be it DIY, art and craft, fashion, photography, food anything I would suggest you to use Instagram as a method of sharing and learning. You’ll thank me for sure .

Cloud Raiders
I use a windows lumia 640 xl mobile phone, and there aren’t much gaming options in for the windows user. Even more am not much into mobile gaming the ones i play are mostly puzzles, hidden objects or building empires and cities. Few days back I came across an article on must have gaming apps for windows phone and i immediately installed all 10 of them tried few and uninstalled 9 by next day end.WhatsApp-Image-20160629

Only when game which caught my interest was the Cloud Raiders. Am loving this game so much that someone like me who sleeps by 11.30-12pm is awake until morning 4am playing this game, setting up alarms on my mobile to know whenever the upgrades i am making to my empire is completed so that i can play further. Games can be addictive too. 😀 Any windows and Cloud Raiders users on my blog??? 

And that’s a wrap for the month of June month. It was a beautiful month with lot of excitement and productive work, lot of learning i would say. How was your June month (considering one more day to go still). ???

Am looking forward for the Word-High July Challenge hosted by  Maria of Doodles and Scribbles and  Rosema of A Reading Writer which is a whole month worth of prompts that are 30 beautiful Filipino words below will serve as the prompt for each day of the month. You should check out this challenge if you love learning new things especially something as cool as a language which has some beautiful sounding and meaning words like KILIG which means “butterflies in one’s stomach” or TINATANGI that means “special someone”. How melodious isn’t it? 

Leaving you all with this note which keeps pushing me to learn something new – When was the last time you did something for the first time??

And it’s time to welcome JULY because it’s special for me ❤ ❤ ❤

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 !!!
