2. Make the right room in your budget – Redo!

What comes next is perfecting your little budget. Check what are the things taking the most cash  – if they’re the bills, rent, fees or important EMIs, it’s all right, but you can definitely cut some slack on things like alcohol, partying, and SHOPPING! Yes, that too- to shop better!

Well, how can we go on with planning the list for all the clothes you want for your wardrobe if you don’t figure out what you already have? Yes, what you need to do is spend the hours with your treasure chest and gather the pile of all your wear worthies!

4. Have a go at the mirror

Now, let’s see how good they look on you! Do the mirror test – how well they fit (still!), how comfortable they are, do they shout out the style of the day, these are the questions to ask!

Known for my laidback and chilled out attitude, I have always believed in making the most of life. I am candid, talkative and not your usual girl next door. With aspiration too big for these tiny eyes, I am looking to grow that perfect pair of wings which can help me visit the places I have only dreamed of. I am a blend of contradictions, an oxymoron in myself as you will find me splurging insanely on ridiculous stuff and the very next moment, I will sit outside my balcony and ponder on what life truly is. The wayward mind is often at crossroads, but then I trod the path that suits the mood. Being with too many friends who have relationship woes, I am now a pro at helping people sort out the mess life often becomes.
