Are You A Shopaholic !!

Are You A Shopaholic !!

Shop, Shop, Shop till you drop! Today the options for shopping are so enormous that most of us have become ‘shopaholics’. I still remember my childhood days when a new outfit meant a special occasion like my birthday or Parsi new year. Mom would buy a nice piece of cloth & get it tailored into a beautiful dress from an old aunt who used to be the only tailor in my vicinity. This was then…..Ready-made clothes were unheard of or were way too expensive for the common man. We have come a long way! Today the world is at our finger tips & shopping has not only become easy but hassle-free too. But with this blessing comes the biggest bane of becoming an impulsive shopper!!! Coming back to my question are you a Shopaholic? If yes, how to control the urge to...

Why Hire an Image Consultant?

It’s been 2 years since I’m running my own business as an Image Consultant under my brand name Images2last yet I meet people who ask me this question time & again ‘What does an Image Consultant do’? Obviously I explain what exactly I do & then the next thing they say ‘Oh yea it’s just Personality Development’….…..Isn’t it!!! Well I’m not going to explain what Image Management is all about but why not look at how an Image Consultant can really help an individual. So I decided to bring out the essence of the work an Image Consultant does & who will benefit most by investing in hiring an Image Consultant.

Would you wear a Sari to the Boardroom?

With a growing number of Indian women occupying top positions in the corporate sector & more women breaking the glass ceiling to show women power does the ‘Sari’ make its way to the boardrooms? As kids we grew up seeing our principals & teachers wear some of the most exquisite saris & they were all people who commanded the most respect! This five yards of cloth in beautiful colours & bright patterns draped delicately around the body is the essence of feminine attire. One of the oldest & most sensuous  attire, the Sari is associated with grace and is widely regarded as a symbol of Indian, Bangladeshi and Sri Lankan culture. If worn in the right colours & textures, draped well with the correct blouse, it goes a long way in creating an...

Narendra Modi truly an Inspiration !

Narendra Modi truly an Inspiration ! For years I have wished our country would have a leader like the US, UK & Germany, finally that wish has come true in the form of our honorable PM Narendra Modi. Off late I have been closely watching his every move & hearing almost all his interviews & speeches only to be inspired & feel happy & proud to have someone like him at the helm of our country. Here are a few of my observations & insights on our PM which makes me give him a 5***** rating. To start with his Oratory Skills Speeches – He has the ‘Gift of the Gab’. His speeches are so well scripted that will keep anyone glued to their seats wanting for more. Even though they look impromptu they are not! That is the beauty  of  the way he...

Getting back to work after a Sabbatical

»Posted by on Apr 5, 2014 in Blog | 2 comments

One of the most common reasons for women to take a sabbatical is to look after their young ones. Post Maternity leaves get extended for a few more months to almost 1-2 years. Many brave women dare to sacrifice their career & financial independence to give their best to their child i.e. ‘Time’. A mothers presence makes a lot of difference in the initial stages of a child’s growth. At such a tender age all they want is to see their mom’s around. If mothers are able to spend enough time with their young ones during the initial years of childhood then the development of the child will be more positive & secure. I’m sure most mothers would vouch that no one can look after their kids better than them. But after a certain point they too wish to get back to work,...
