Mythology Mixology

Last month, Pia Pauro launched her Spring Summer 2015 Collection at The Imperial along with the Campari 2015 Calendar.

Uniqueness, passion... the the words that symbolize the Italian aperitif, Campari, are also a perfect way to describe Resort Wear designer Pia Pauro's  latest Italian collection which is inspired by the islands of Italy. 

This year’s iconic Campari Calendar, entitled ‘Mythology Mixology', which stars the beautiful French born actress Eva Green, is the 16th edition in the collection and is dedicated to celebrating Campari’s unique and intriguing history and the intrinsic stories linked to twelve of its best-loved classic cocktails.  The Campari Calendar, of which only 9,999 copies are printed, and is not retailed anywhere, is gifted to friends of Campari.

We Do Change

I have read many philosophers saying that it is only the calender that changes and not us. That no matter how new we feel, we still own the same old, stubborn, usual, non flexible soul.

While it may be true to a certain extent, but new things happen to us every new year. An acquaintance of mine used to write diaries and once made the effort to compare his notes written on various new years. He was in for a surprise. While his resolutions faltered sooner or later, he did did new things. He learnt from some of them and he also repeated his mistakes. We all do.

We all have two sides of ourselves: one that changes and one that does not. At the end of the year, we all live on hope. So let us hope that we will change for good. Let us hope we will do many new things this year. Let us make a list.

I know I have wished you guys in my last post, but still..

Happy new year.

This Year, Be Yourself

Yes, I know this does not look like a usual fashion post. It is more than that.

It is more than my idea of bringing street fashion to your desktops and mobile phones. I have become a small part of a new initiative called Be Yourself. These are the pictures of some of the kids we celebrated our New Year with.

Be Yourself is all about spending a few hours on your average weekend to spread cheer among those who are less privileged. The team will keep you updated about their latest activities on their Facebook page. You can participate in the activities if you wish to.

It is time we all give something back to the society. It is time we make some effort to change things. A small step is enough. Be Yourself is not an NGO. It is just an initiative that calls people to help the poor every once in a while.

Check out their website here. Do like their Facebook page. Let me know your thoughts. And yes, I would like to wish you all a very happy new year. Sorry about the break. Have an awesome weekend.

Please like Be Yourself's Facebook page. It would mean a lot.
