As we are almost half past January, hope the new year is treating you well.
I have a few updates to share with you guys in this post.
If you are reading my blog for a long time, you would know that I was on a career break for past 1.5 years. On January 5, 2015, I joined a new job. But before I tell you about it, let me take you about over an year back when my husband joined a new firm, as India Head, an overseas based Contracts Management firm starting its foray in India. Back then we were very excited and head over the heels with this new opportunity. It certainly was a very challenging opportunity and it was the right time for me to take a step back and slow down a bit! However, as the business grew and my husband started to feel the heat of the work load, the Director asked if I could help them on and off to take some pressure off my husband's head and I immediately agreed. I started helping them on and off on a few projects during the later part of 2014. And, during this time the Director again asked me if I wish to join them as their Contracts and Cost Analyst. I was overwhelmed with this offer, but, also a bit anxious as it would be a change in my job profile. Cutting long story short, on 5 January 2015, I joined this new job and now considering this as a great opportunity to learn new things and explore new sectors.
As of now, I am settling down in the new job and not fully loaded with work. You all know the initial honey moon period which we all enjoy in a new job! But, as the time progresses I will definitely be more busy with my career and new job. However, I will still try to post here as much as possible. But, I certainly cannot stick to a fixed schedule.
The beauty of the new job is that, as it's still a small firm with only 3 employees in India, the work culture is very informal and casual. For example, we wear formal clothes only when there's a client meeting! Isn't that cool? So, this gives me room to experiment more with 'not so wearable' (bold and over the top) make-up to work. Haha! And moreover the office is close by, which means no traveling in local trains and buses which is like a dream in Mumbai! I mean who wants to travel 1-2 hours for reaching work sweating and totally exhausted with no time for anything else in life. Life isn't just about working at job, right?
Another update is that, now that as my Mother-in-Law retired from her job in September 2014 (she worked for 40 long years with Government in Higher Education Department), my husbands parents would be staying with us in Mumbai more frequently in a year than they earlier used to. Which is kinda great, because, I will not have to think about keeping things in order back home. Oh, my Mother-in-Law is so good at it. I wonder how she managed all this with her super busy schedule at work. Having said that, earlier when used to visit us I used to take a break from everything. But, now they staying with us for longer duration, taking a break cannot be an option. Which I will soon figure out with them.
With all these new things happening in my life, I am still figuring about the right time to take pictures for the blog for which morning seems to be the best time, but, I am still getting into the hang of working again with a full house. You know what mean!
As for my YT Channel goes, I haven't really thought through on how I am gonna manage posting videos more frequently. I wish to build in more flexibility in filming, with some lights, in the evening or at night. But, I am still working on a few options before I take any decision and not sure how its gonna progress. So, I am keeping this hanging for a few days. This is where I need your help and suggestions!
As, blogging and making videos is just a hobby to me, I don't want to make it a chore and post just for the sake of it. This will help me remain fresh in my writing and I will be able to give you more meaningful content and that't what matter to me at the end of day!
All said and done, I am sure not gonna stop buying and trying new make-up and of course not stop wearing it either and also not stop digging my stash and rediscovering some older goodies :-D
I think that is all for now!
Have a wonderful week!
Lots of Love
