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. 🙂

Amrapali – Online Shopping Review


Amrapali is my favorite Indian jewellery brand! I was super excited when Kolkata saw it’s first Amrapali showroom around 2011. Every few months I keep adding to my Amrapali earrings collection and this time I thought of trying their online shopping services.

Tribebyamrapali.com debuted in 2013 with their first online-exclusive collection along with their regular collections. Most people would be skeptical about buying jewellery online, especially silver and gold, but with over 35 years of existence Amrapali is a brand you can trust. And I can say that with a lot more conviction since my latest purchase.

About the brand :- Amrapali is a globally renowned, respected and coveted luxury jewellery brand based out of Jaipur. Their collections personify the heritage of India with a modern eclectic twist. The brand is renowned for it’s signature craftsmanship rooted in ancient aesthetics with modern interpretation of the same. You could read more about it here.
