How do I introduce a legend, who completely revolutionized the fashion industry during the advent of the 20th century?
How do I introduce a woman, who wanted to showcase subtlety and innovation in her clothing line at a time when women were forced to wear uncomfortable, fussy dresses?
How do I introduce Gabrielle Bonheur 'Coco' Chanel?

No one understands the role of a multitasking better than women. We womenfolk reprise many roles in our lifetime. Many of us effectively tackle career, household and relationships with ease. It's inherent in our DNA.
It's the same DNA that all leather products at Soulful Collection inherit. Each of our leather bags can be used for various roles. They are casual, formal, ideal for work or play, can go perfect on a date or at an interview! It's interesting because till now, leather bags haven't really been explored so much in terms of their design and usage.

What does it mean to be a woman?
Personally, I feel one of the most beautiful things about being a woman is to have attributes, such as love, care, endurance, faithfulness, patience, tolerance, understanding, benevolence, and devotion. To be a woman means embodying the great feminine essence – being a creator of life.
Unfortunately, with various different interpretations of womanhood, society tends to categorize women; she is traditional, modern, feminist, liberal, conservative, etc. The list goes on and on.
I am a woman; I am proud to be a woman; I enjoy the everyday process of evolution. I love to challenge the naysayers who love to put me in a box and think little of my potential.

While the intention is there on everyone's mind to travel, most of them fall short of going out simply due to the costs that are incurred. Thinking about traveling makes you stressed out and worried; you have a lump in your throat; you start making crazy plans to even get little discounts whatsoever!

Love may have many definitions but the emotion is same. The emotion of showing care, concern and appreciation for the people who are close to your heart. You adore them; you pamper them; you think about them; you are happy with them.
That is why it feels good when you have a day that is commemorated the world over in the spirit of this beautiful emotion called love.

There's no denying the fact that women intuitively keep track of all the hottest designs and styles of handbags that are in vogue. However, the task of mixing the right handbag with an appropriate outfit is something that drives women crazy. This obsession, nonetheless, comes from the so-called 'Fashion Rules' that has been made since time immemorial.

Today's blog is for the ladies- the dreamers, the achievers, the rock stars! (Sorry guys, that's the truth, girls rock!)
Hope all of you had an amazing time on the Christmas Day!
It was an incredible evening for me! We had so much fun! My lovely daughter, her little friends and I danced our heart out to Christmas party songs, while my husband, who became potbellied Santa, distributed gifts and played an excellent host to all.
However, just as we were eating plum cakes while opening our Christmas gifts, it occurred to me that even New Year's Eve is coming in few days! Yayyiee!

As they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. This is true for leather products, which are known for being expensive and premium. And thus the birth of faux leather took place.
Faux leather, or fake leather, is a material that resembles leather, but is made from a synthetic framework. The birth of faux leather took place because it is cheaper than real leather. However, the quality is lower than the original as well.

How many of us clean our daily stuff regularly? (I don't see many hands up! LOL)
Agreed, it's a pain in the behind to clean your bags, shoes, closets, clothes, etc.
I know what you'll say – that you'll do it later. But you know what? Procrastination is not really a good habit. As they say, “Procrastination is like a credit card: it's a lot of fun until you get the bill. ”
Now come on! Who on earth would like to see your dirty, muddy shoes when you come to the office. Or see a shabby, unkempt version of you and your house? And don't get me started when those shoes leave a dirty imprint on the floor tiles of the house; you feel like turning into a green hulk behemoth and vent out your angry feelings towards the recipient.

Happiness is a choice. You can choose to be happy. There's going to be stress in life, but it's your choice whether you let it affect you or not. - Valerie Bertinelli
The choice is to be happy or sad. The choice is to react or not to react. Your choice to lead a stress-free, smooth and an easy life rests squarely on you.
I believe we all have the power to change ourselves. All it takes is a bit of intelligence and some common sense. We all have the power to change and uplift our lifestyle.
I see people worrying about nonsensical things and wasting all their energy over it. I observe people not really investing themselves in some of the important things in life – good food, quality lifestyle, disciplined health.

2015, we are fast approaching to write on the first blank page of the workbook.
OMG! When did 2014 fly by? It seemed only yesterday that 2014 paved its way upon us. And what an eventful year has it been!
Notwithstanding the global events that occurred, personally as well, it has been a tumultuous year for me.
Having said that, every year throws a new form of challenge for all of us, which we obviously face with grit and a smile on our face. So now, 2015 awaits us, opening arms wide, accepting us with all our who we are, trying to give us all love.
