May calls for the Beaches!

THE RINK is up with the latest coverpage. The theme is right there: Beach + Fashion + Fun = Summer! What is summer without visits to the beach?! Living in this tropical country, I have lost count of the seasons…but summer just made the hot days hotter and the beach days better! Fashion tips for this summer are in this May!

There is a special post on Mother’s Day.. Keep guessing until the 14th. Fashion Trends? Beauty tips? Best presents to give her? I won’t tell you now.

The biggest highlight for this month is the post on Instagram Tricks. Or perhaps, posts on Instagram Tricks! One by one, you will come to know this art. Get ready for some fame. It is coming your way!

April with a Silver Lining

When a blog completes 3 months, it is already a success! Running into the 4th month!

The three lovely things to emphasise on are back! As per the ritual, it starts with the months’s coverpage, it goes on with my follower count and eventually to the blogger award!

#1 Coverpage for April

The chosen theme for this month is our Greek Goddess, Aphrodite. It is all about beauty and love for her… Of course, it does come with poetry in the olden era and right now, it would go hand-in-hand with fashion!

#3 Blogger Award

the-liebster-award

Thank you so very much Y!! Y writes at The Catalysts for Change – A blog that doesn’t deal with the small and petty things but it deals with the bigger and deeper stuff… Every post comes along with the tagline – Bringing Awareness to mental illness and sexual assault. Quite powerful, right? The words bring out meaning that touches our soul and it brings about a pretty stimulating change! Check out the latest post here!

Rules:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you.
  2. Answer the 11 questions posted by the blogger.
  3. Write 11 random facts about yourself.
  4. Nominate 11 bloggers who deserve this award.
  5. Let them know about the nomination.
  6. Give them 11 questions to answer.

Eleven Questions posted by Y:

1.What brought you to the blogging world?/How did you start blogging?

I always knew that I have to start somewhere to get into a magazine as a writer or maybe even head a magazine… The problem was that I knew this for ages and I never did anything about it. Eventually on the night of 14th December 2016, I just sat down and voila! The Rink came into existence!

2. What is your favourite post?

My favourite posts are 10+ Fashion Styles Explored and Fashion Formula for Valentine’s Day – Can it be inspired from Fashion Weeks? and the guest posts that I wrote for other blogs. In these posts, it is really me… I didn’t assume the identity of a fashionista when I wrote those… I wrote it in the point of view of just another girl in the fashion world.

3. What is your favourite thing about blogging?

Blogging is when you leave the creative juices flowing! It is all about passion! There is absolutely no compulsion and it is about your voice, your opinion and your freedom!

4. What is a topic that you’ve always wanted to write about (but haven’t yet)?

I don’t have the itch to write about one particular topic right now… But if I did, it would be about a girl battling between the traditional culture and modern culture.

5. If you could go to any city/country right now, where would you go?

As of now, I want to explore Europe…

6. What is your favourite book?

I ❤ Jane Eyre… It was the first book that made me cry, laugh and feel every kind of emotion… A Thousand Boy Kisses is a close second!

7. What is a quote that really speaks to you?

I love several quotes and all those quotes inspire me… these are quotes ranging from normal people to dialogues in tv shows and movies and by famous people. I always awe at specific verses in poetry. One of the quotes would be,

“Imperfection is beauty, Madness is genius, And it is better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring” – Marilyn Monroe

8. Who is your role model?

Role models… I don’t have one… If there is one, then it would be the future me who is ten years older than me. I have some goals and expectations for the future me. So, right now, she is my role model.

9. What do you believe is your purpose?

To spread news, emotions and everything subtle and deep through words and art!

10. What is your favourite characteristic about yourself?

I will never give up on a person. Every person is worth the hope!

11. What accomplishment of yours are you most proud of?

I have been acknowledged for most of my accomplishments like getting awards for being a part of the student body council, academics, sports and everything… However, I was pushed to get those awards because who does’t love to win competitions! I guess blogging would be my biggest accomplishment biggest because there is absolutely no competition… Just genuine liking and passion fuelled this entire process!

Recent Update on the Poetry Guest Blog Series: 

Some poets told me about how it is hard to base poems on the topic I had given for April 4th and 6th… And so, I have decided to take in poetry on beauty and fashion trends too for the two dates! So, shall we tie the string of words and attach it to pearls?!

L.R.

And April Begins! Aphrodite Enters the Frame!

This is the month of Aphrodite, the Greek Goddess of Beauty! Well, lets say, charm and fashion too! Beauty and Fashion may go hand in hand but without charms, she wouldn’t have been herself! For this charm, we need some words. Do you have a way with words? Then, we need you!

Requirements:

Poetry (not more than 30 lines) on the Topic I announce during the weekend along with the blog post under Fashion Category! So, stay tuned!

8 lucky guest bloggers will get to show off their work on THE RINK! It will be published every Tuesday and Thursday!The topics will swirl around Fashion Trends or Beauty! You will be contacted if your work is selected! Do follow the blog (in WordPress or subscribe through e-mail) for your work to be considered!

The topics might be in words or in pictures – get your imaginations all set and those fingers on the keyboard! We are waiting to see your work! What are you waiting for? Send in your poems to therinkfashion@gmail.com !

Topic for 4th April and 6th April:

This is based on the photoshoot that happened recently for THE RINK Coverpage for the month of April! It can be based on the model H’s beauty or the dress she is wearing or her feelings or yours… But at least one third of it should be based on fashion or beauty!

February to March!

Running into the 3rd month…

The Three Treats for THE RINK in Feb are here!

First things first! March Cover Page is here! There is going to be a series of fashion posts on The Art Of Disguise. This month is the month when we are all about work… pretty settled in 2017, we stop thinking about what to wear! We just go with the normal clothes and styling up becomes something for people, who wake up early, have time as a luxury to dress up! So, the disguise is about how to dress up to show off the personality you want to display! The signature Beauty Trade Secret series continues…

Don’t have the picture of it on that exact date… but I do have the picture for the follower count as of today! Thank you so much! Each of you give so much more value to this blog! ❤

The third one is very special – About the awards! I must thank my friends, Y from The Catalysts for Change and Sarah from Lifewithlilred for nominating me for the Blogger Recognition Award!!!

screen-shot-2017-03-05-at-11-06-41-pmRules:

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.

4. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
5. Select 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to.
6. Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them and provide the link to the post you created.

The story – It was in my mind for ages… and then one night, the 14th of December 2016, I felt like if it is not executed, what good is the only thought? That led to THE RINK.

2 pieces of advice? I consider myself as a new blogger. I still feel like this is a whole new thing! Maybe that is it! Because it is new, there is passion – when there is passion, everything else will always follow! Also, I love interacting with you, bloggers! Socialising is pretty amazing here at the bloggers community! When we can, why not?!

There are millions of amazing bloggers out there but I am only going to name 3 wonderful bloggers! And I have made myself a promise not to nominate the same blogger twice because all of you guys are great and I would nominate every single one of you everytime!

Here are the three special bloggers:

Lisa from Bankrupt Beauty

KT from KT⋅The⋅Blondie

Emmanuel Spinnos from Photostoriesteller

And there it is! The Three treats! ❤

The picture is clicked by the beauty blogger Surabi Chandira (S.C.) and the model featured will go by the initial C.

Ever since I was young, I have always wanted to be a writer – especially a magazine writer. To mark a footstep in that path, I design coverpages for each month!

Second – 50+ followers! Thanks to each and every one of you for your support! I really have to thank some special bloggers here – Yosra, for your support; Madeline, for your friendliness in the blogging world; GA Khan (Ahmed) for your encouraging words; Sarah, for the opportunity to write a guest blog post; Yaryna for your inspiring thoughts!

3 Interesting Facts about Myself:

1. I am an introverted extrovert.
