Goal Setting for 2016 (Free Printable)

Happy New Year

A new year is a chance for a better you– that’s what I believe in. You could make changes anytime of the year but I think important dates like new year and birthdays help set a clearer timeline. As you might have already guessed – today’s post is on a personal note, but I have also included free yearly and monthly goal setting printable for you!

Some of you might argue the following list of my personal goals for 2016 is more of a resolution list, and you would not be wrong. But I find calling them goals motivates me further since ‘goals’ are more result oriented. In comparison ‘resolutions’ are just decisions that most of us end up breaking, at least I don’t find it impelling enough to stay persistent. Anyways, whatever you may want to call it, I feel even more answerable for achieving them since it is posted on the blog now!

Shatakshi K -Goals for 2016

The list is a mix of health related, passion related, fun things and personal changes. I will dive a bit into each resolution to tell you where it comes from and what I want to achieve. This way you could help me through the changes and I am open to all suggestions and ideas. 🙂

Dupatta Design – Cape Style


Today’s DIY is an easy dupatta design in the trending cape style, inspired by the likes of Tarun Tahiliani and Pratyusha Garimella. I converted a basic off-white hand-loom dupatta into a edge dye (natural dyeing) dupatta cape with placement embroidery.

You could use net dupatta with ready embroidery, printed Georgette dupatta, multi-colored silk dupatta or any fabric of 2.5 mtr of your choice. I will be showing a step-by-step tutorial of the dupatta cape – from neckline shaping, embroidery attaching to edge dyeing. In case you do not want to add embroidery or dye your dupatta fabric, just follow steps 1 to 4.
