Shopaholic gets a fright💀

Hello Loves ❣️

Today I’m going to tell you a story, a freaky story and a true story 😈. So last night I went to bed pretty late ( I’m on vacation don’t judge me 😬).

Before I go to bed I usually keep a bottle of water  💦on my nightstand since my mouth gets very dry in the middle of the night. And since I watch way too many horror movies 🎥 there is no way I’m going out in the middle of the night to become the easy, unsuspecting prey to a psychopath serial killer, a vengeful spirit or restless ghoul.

Getting back to our tale of terror 💀, I woke up around 4 am, groped about in the dark for my water 💦 bottle which I found under the bed empty 😡thanks to the plethora of forever thirsty nieces sleeping over 😴.
Since I couldn’t go back to sleep with a parched throat 🍂and the nieces were sleeping even more deeply than Snow White and Sleeping beauty👑 combined. I braced myself to tackle the impending task alone and after peeping around the door for potential death traps  🌑 tip toed gingerly into the living room. 

It’s a mystery to me how my eyes 👀 even with their pathetic vision suddenly start seeing all sorts of unworldly objects and paranormal activity ☠️ in pitch black darkness. Harmless shadows resemble ominous 👻figures, mundane sounds like the clock ticking sound like echoing 👣footsteps you get the idea….

I hurriedly refilled my bottle willing my mind not to rerun through every single horror movie I had watched. As I made my way across the living room I happened to glance at the window and I literally jumped out of my skin. There pressed against the window was the silhouette of a giant cat sitting perfectly still staring off into the distance. This on a night that was the background of a typical Hollywood horror flick complete with a thunderstorm ⚡️and pouring rain outside. ⛈

If that wasn’t enough to petrify me the cat that had been stationary till then decided to swivel its head and stare straight at me. The sight of two fluorescent slits in a pitch black  room was the last straw I stifled a blood curling scream that was about to explode from me (the last time I had screamed at that sight of a stray cat in my supposedly dark and empty bedroom had resulted in dire consequences : brown people read your mom’s chappal 👡). 

I willed my legs to move which at the first instance of terror turn into two solid pillars of lead incapable of movement. The cat meanwhile was content to sit on its perch and stare at me with those creepy glowing eyes. I finally dragged myself to my room double bolted the door 🚪 dived under the covers and pulled the blanket over my head  frantically reciting every prayer I could recall. 

I want to ask at this point ☝️ why when we are feeling the most terrified do we think that a lifeless piece of fabric aka the blanket or duvet can provide us the ultimate protection against ghosts, 👻ghouls, 💀or knife wielding murderers🔪❓

Plus no matter how hard you try to think 💭 innocent thoughts your mind will determinedly conjure up the things that terrify 💀you the most. Long story short despite the fact that I was sleeping in a room literally littered with nieces sleeping on every available space we could fit a mattress in. I stayed up till sunrise cowering under my blanket, terrified I was going to be attacked by a possesed cat that would apparate into my room and change into a something from a James Wan movie 😱 I think I only dozed off 😴when I saw the sun ☀️ shining through the curtains. 😖 

Have you guys ever had one of those nights when you were scared and couldn’t sleep? Let me know in the comments 😘

💔Shopaholic Rant: Unfriending people on Facebook 💔

💔Genuine relationships require a great deal of time, energy,commitment and emotional investment.

💔For this reason I have always been utterly bemused by the sheer no of friends people claim to have these days, esp since the widespread usage of social media. Almost every person’s profile I have clicked on in the last few months has a had friend count of over 500 😳.

💔With an average school having between 400-500 students thats like being friends with every single person in school !😱

💔 I mean even at weddings the maximum guests you have if you are Caucasian 👱🏼‍♀️is 50-250, or if you are brown 🙎🏻is between 200-400 and that includes the entire odd assortment of relatives and colleagues, friends of your parents, their extended families etc. So where exactly are these 500+ “friends” ? I’ve personally never seen anyone at one time hanging out with 500 close friends have you? I mean even in the cult favorite show “Friends” there were only 5.

💔Have we redefined friendship to include any person with a social media account to have free access to our personal life? Or has the numbers game taken over relationships as well in this day and age?

💔I personally find the idea of someone I barely know, have access to all my social media just plain odd and awkward. I’ll give you an example, recently  I stumbled upon a middle school classmate after almost 10+ years through a common friend. Even though we were never more than polite acquaintances back in school immediately she requested to befriend me on social media. Since she had already whipped her phone out and was looking at me expectantly, it seemed rude not to comply. A couple of weeks later however since I didn’t hear a single peep from her, I ceremoniously unfriended her off all my social media accounts. 😕.

💔Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a mean, hateful person ( well not all the time 😋) and I love the idea of making new friends. But here’s what I don’t get: befriending someone on social media only to ignore them in real life? Picture this I went to the movies 🎬with a “friend” and the entire time we were there she was busy liking pics on Instagram and commenting on Facebook. 😡 The whole point of going to the movies with friends is to laugh together and comment on the funny and interesting bits. I honestly was pissed off and left wondering why she had bothered to come at all.

💔Secondly why would you want divulge all your life details to someone you just met( let’s face facts people from what we are eating and drinking, to what we are wearing to who we are with and where we put in all on social media). 

💔Finally why would you want to have someone who you have zero interest in past the intial friend request, have all of their crap show up on your newsfeed? I mean it’s frustrating enough to have to deal with insufferable people in real life,  but to have them irritate you online as well? I’ve frankly got no tolerance for the selfie queens, attention seeking status posters, repeated game request senders,or people who just want to add and forget you…😒.

💔Why not just unfollow them you ask? Well I’ve done that but that still lets them look at my stuff whenever they choose to and I’m not in the habit of putting up a zillion different privacy settings everytime I post. Plus everytime I happen to look over my friends list and see a name that i haven’t had any sort of contact with in ages it makes me wonder what on earth are they still doing on my friends list?🤔

💔I mean the last time I checked Facebook wasn’t a dupe for the yellow pages 📒.

💔To be honest I feel much better after I spring cleaned my social media contact list. It may have dwindled my friend count but atleast the ones left are the ones that matter. How do you clean up your social media let me know here 😘

Until next time loves xoxo💋

Shopaholic’s Casual Weekend 🔆OOTD Featuring Toms🍃

Hello Loves!💟

🍃Welcome to an early edition of the OOTD post 💫 This week’s OOTD is special🎉 because of two reasons 😇, one we have a three day weekend🎉 yay! And second because it features one of my favorite brands Toms⚜.

🍃You can check out my review of Tom’s here, meanwhile lets get started on today’s OOTD. Weekend dressing for me has to be totally casual and comfortable  esp when it’s hot and humid I prefer cool fabrics like cotton and linen. The cotton top with its bright embroidery pairs perfectly with the linen pants and the stripes lend a slimming effect 😍 to the overall silhouette. The clutch bag is perfect for storing all my essentials I even use it as a cosmetics case to stow in my tote. The shoes are my go to pair when I’m out and about and the lace texture makes them just feminine enough 😇.

🍃Top and pants : Old Navy

🍃 Shoes : Toms

🍃Handbag : Joyn @ Toms Marketplace
