In light of the fact that it is the beginning of a new year, thoughts of fresh habits, new bucket lists, ideas and hope always occurs to me. As the tradition continues, this year too, I have been getting excited about everything new that the beginning of a new year promises.
The idea of making things with my hands, sharing inspiring ideas, photographing places I visit and extensively documenting them all, appealed to me 4 New Years ago. This was the reason behind why I started blogging. But, somewhere in these four years I stopped taking up DIY projects, blaming lack of time and inspiration. Though, this was not entirely true. The best way to revive this habit I figured would be to start a new handmade project. For someone who likes to compulsively take pictures, this project had to revolve around the same. That is how my sweet handmade (mostly) photobooth started. The idea behind this is to make and instantly print funny pictures of people with handmade props at events, parties, and terraces of friends’ homes.
When your work involves dressing other people, fun or otherwise it is quite important that you are well dressed too. How else can I convince someone to wear a clown nose or hold a board which reads stud muffin? This job also requires me to be on my feet for hours hence ruling out any elaborate styling. I figured minimalist approach is the best way to go. That is when I turned to Mia jewelry for all my accessory needs. I completely dig these 14 carat light weight jewelry, which are also intricately designed. They subtly spiff the entire look.
I am not the one to invest in a lot of imitation jewelry; I guess it is one of my South Indian traits. But, investing in gold and diamonds only is not always feasible. Thanks to Mia now dressing up in minimalist jewelry is completed within budget. And, unlike statement jewelry it doesn’t get in the way. Subtle impressions and minute detailing appeals my minimalist side, whether it is in clothes or accessories. Mia, in this regard works quite well as they come in manageable sizes are fuss free but full of style.
