Black and White

Black and White
I’ve been programmed
Well trained mind
Focused eyesight
Prejudices and Prides in place

My blacks and whites
Are perfectly polished
My definitions ingrained
In my bone marrows

I know white is heaven
White is clean and pure
White is all that’s pretty
White is all that’s right

I know black is hell
Black is darkness
Black is unclean and defiled
Black is strong with negative bearings

But what if

Black is strength
Black is God
Black is power
With the negatives

White is still all the good
All the right and pure
But not the only colour
That represents it all

What if

Skin tones
Are not Important

A painting is all about mixes
A myriad of hues
So how do you define
How do you associate
A single colour to something

The Case of a Canadian Tuxedo

Came across this article browsing through my reader…

While denims are clearly always in fashion, the Mumbai On-The-Road trends favour denim shirts quite heavily! What’s better than picking up some simple denim shirts and matching them with your perfect-fit jeans… Personally I believe, the best combinations from below are the light-dark combinations, a good balance to make a brilliant style statement.

Thus, the Case of a Canadian Tuxedo is an interesting read about this trend…

Seasonal Fruits and Veggies Cheat Sheet

An interesting read, since its important to eat right and stick to fruits and vegetables of the season!

into mind

Until very recently I didn’t really believe that in-season fruit and vegetables really taste better than off-season produce that traveled many air miles or was stored for months in climate-controlled containers. But it’s true – nectarines and peaches for example have a lot more flavour during late spring and summer time while the ones they have in store right now are more expensive and taste kind of watery. I found these cool cheat sheets by Chasing Delicious that break down the seasonal availability of all kinds of produce and make seasonal shopping a lot easier!

What about you? How strict are you about seasonal shopping?

4)      Oh-So-Different Girls – For those who love standing out in the crowd! These chicks are usually the ones who would never own anything that they have seen someone else use.

5)      The Professional – For those working women who are absolutely no-frills! These women are all practical at least they believe themselves to be. Their lives need to be organized and clutter-free, for professional always hate a mess and over-dramaticness.
