Disappointed.

Hi loves,

I’m currently in Oslo. I came yesterday in rush for my brother’s surgery as it was unexpected. We went to the hospital today for an assessment, but it didn’t go as we hoped. After being sent back and forth, we were told that they could not do the surgery as they were missing one of the results. This is the second time …

I mean everything happens for a reason, but this is ridiculous. We were mentally prepared and ready for a change.
Oh well. I still believe in God and I think he knows what’s best in this situation.

Anyways, I will try to stay positive and enjoy my time with my family. For me, it’s all about being there for them at any time. That’s the little thing I can do for them …

I will catch you all soon.

Loves,

Nivetha Vijay

Changes.

Happy Wednesday,

The sun is shining in London today and it feels great.

It’s been a while, I know. I have been working a lot lately with our new collections and planning a couple of projects. The best is yet to come.

Apart from that, I decided to be more present in life. I was still good, but I want to be better. When you are on social media and running a business, you can easily spend hours on the phone, but I’m slowly changing that. Whenever I go to bed, I put my phone far away. It makes a huge difference in the morning and the day starts in a better way.

I have also ‘’ cleaned ‘’ through my platforms and removed unnecessary things. I guess I’m getting more mature now? Hm.

Anyways, I hope to be more active with my blog. I’m looking forward warmer days for outfits and fashionable posts. Until then, I will try my best to keep you all entertained during January blues.

I wish you all a bright day

Loves

Self-critical

Photo by Joseph Radhik 

Many of us may be self-critical to a degree, but sometimes it can go to an extent. No matter what I do, I’m very self-critical. It can be anything. On top of that, I’m a perfectionist. It can be good, but very difficult most of the times. Yes, the critical inner voice. We can hear this nasty voice in various areas of our life.

I’m always hard on myself. I criticise and analyse everything I do. I want to give the best all the time and it can be exhausting in the long run. I have my standards and boundaries, but I decided to come out of it. I will start with little things and move slowly forward. It will be a long process, but it will be better for inner me…

Sunday

Happy Sunday,

I hope you all are good.

It’s sunny in London, but very cold. I decided to stay in this weekend and get some work done. I have been organising and planning for this year. I’m super ready for the new opportunities and challenges which I’m looking forward sharing with you all.

Apart from that, I’m not feeling well. But I made it to the gym today. Yey! Seriously, I need to get back to myself. I will hopefully reach my goal without any excuses at this time …

Time to for lunch and more work. I catch you all soon.

Wish you all a great week ahead! Stay motivated and positive

Loves,

New year’s resolutions.

Happy Tuesday,

We are at the very beginning of 2018 and we all want to set our new year’s resolutions to change something in our lives for the better. It can be all from task-oriented goals to aspirational goals.

Task-oriented goals are where you need to take an action to achieve it. Aspirational goals are what you wish to achieve, but it may be out of your control.

It’s easy to write a long list of resolutions, but is it realistic? A few years back, I thought I could change myself into a new person over the night, which is ridiculous and silly.

I learned that changes may take time and trust the process. Take step by step. Set goals that make your heart fulfilled and happy. ‘’ Life is not a competition. Each one is on their own journey. Live according to your choices, capacity, values and principles. ‘’ One of my favourites lines to live by.

Take a moment for yourself and write down what you wish you achieve this year. Create your vision board. Don’t be hard on yourself. Get inspired by your failure. Stay motivated.

I wish you all the best and success.

Loves,

Nivetha Vijay

The beginning.

From today’s shoot.

Happy New Year!

I hope you all are having a good start of 2018.

Honestly, I had one of the best celebrations in London. We celebrated the new year’s eve with my good friend, Jey and his friends. We watched the specular fireworks at Trafalgar square with bubbles and lots of laughter. Thanks to my friend for sorting out the tickets at last minute and making it special.

After couple hours of sleep, we went to shoot with the sweetest Soniya from Canada and PhotoNImage (Of Course). It was freezing cold, but I had an amazing time with them.

I’m truly grateful for a great start of the year. Can’t wait for all the good things to come in 2018! I’m excited to share my journey with you all.

Time for me-time with a hot cup of tea and movie. Catch you soon!

Loves,

Nivetha Vijay

 

Last day

Happy Sunday,

I came home on Wednesday from Oslo. I have been taking some time out from social media lately and enjoying myself with family and friends. On top of that, quality time with my dear husband. It feels wonderful!

It’s the last day of 2017. I can’t believe how fast this year has gone. To be honest, this year has been like a roller-coaster. There have been some wonderful moments and some low points. In the end, I learned to be more strong, fearless, grateful and wise.

I’m thankful for all of it. The highs. The lows. The blessings. The lessons. The setbacks. The comebacks. The love. The hate. Everything.

Leave your fears behind, take that hope in your hearts and make it big every day, every month, every year … It’s your life, live it happily!

Happy New Year ♥ I will catch you all in the new year. Stay warm and safe!

Loves,

Nivetha Vijay

Christmas

Merry Christmas,

I hope you all are good.

I’m snuggled in the sofa with a cup of tea. It has been some lazy days at home, but I’m not complaining. I’m grateful to be around my family and friends at this time of the year. Sadly, my husband is missing, but definitely next year.

Yesterday was lovely. We had a very relaxing Christmas Eve with lots of food and games. I stayed in my pyjamas all day. Haha… Anyways, it was good.

Time for family dinner. I catch you all soon.

Have a great evening ♥

Loves,

Nothing is guaranteed.

Hi loves,

I want to share a few words from my heart.

First of all, I want to thank you all for your love and constant support. I appreciate all the likes, comments, messages and emails, I receive every day. Thank you for always motivating and pushing me to be the best version of myself.

It’s almost Christmas, but some of you may not be excited cause of your circumstances. It’s not about having the most delicious dinner or the most luxurious gifts. It’s all about to be present and enjoy the time with your loved ones.

Nothing is guaranteed and I learned that in a hard way. I promise you. Take a moment for yourself and appreciate what you have in life. There are some people with nothing who still manage to smile. Over the years, I started to realise what’s important for me.

I think as you grow older your Christmas list gets shorter because the things you want can’t be bought.

Last year, I was very upset as I could not spend the Christmas with my family. I had everything I needed, but not my family. It was hard, but I knew that it will be better the next year.

All I wanted this Christmas is to spend time with my loved ones which I got fulfilled and that’s more than enough for me. I’m grateful to be around my parents, brothers and friends. Life is short and spend your time wisely.

Don’t be upset if you don’t receive your dream gift this year. It doesn’t mean that you will never get it, right? Be patient and trust the timing. Be happy with what you have while working for what you want.

 ‘’ Train your mind to see the good in everything. Positivity is a choice. The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts. ‘’

I really don’t hope anyone is celebrating Christmas alone. If you are feeling down or upset, feel free to message me. I will be happy to help …

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas.

Loves,

Nivetha Vijay

Behind the scene from yesterdays shoot. 

Hi loves,

I hope you all are good.

Finally, I’m in Oslo after a very successful shoot. Special thanks to Aishu Ram for flying me over and taking care of me. She is very talented and super sweet!

Honestly, I didn’t know what to expect as it was my first shoot in Scandinavia. But I was very pleased with yesterday’s shoot and the team. (Makeup and hair: Aishu Ram, Photo: Velvetdreams Photography, Video: Digitalpro)

I have worked with many makeup artists in the industry, but only a few work according to your style. Aishu did an amazing job and made me feel comfortable throughout the makeover. Her work is simple, yet beautiful.

Jenna from Velvetdreams photography was super lovely and easy to work with. DigitalproDK joined us for the second look and did a great job. These boys are young and very talented.

I’m super grateful and happy to have met these new faces. I feel more and more connected to everyone.

Ok. I think I can officially say that I’m done with all the shoots for this year. Yey! Time to relax and enjoy my time in Oslo with my family and friends.

I wish you all a good day!

Loves,

Nivetha Vijay
