Hey y’all beauties! I am so excited to be here today as a guest blogger on KMD! What an honor!
My name is Richa, and I am the brains (and the hands) behind the blog iScriblr.com, where we talk about life hacks, fashion and beauty tips, photography, health gyan, motherhood, poetry and heartfelt musings about everything and anything under the sun! (Talk about variety, eh!)
Komal has been more that just “another” blogger friend to me, and I am so proud of how far we’ve come in terms of mutual respect, admiration and friendship! Well.. It’s not everyday that you meet people that inspire you, challenge you and support you! Guess, I’m just lucky to have met her (all thanks to blogging! )
Keeping up with Komal’s wonderful blog, here’s my attempt to match her creativity and brilliance.
Well, with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to – get a little mushy, be at our romantic best and add that lovey-dovey touch for a “perfect date!” And who says dates have to be expensive and precarious? (Specially if we keep in mind the COVID-19 mayhem and its aftermath!)
Y’all, let’s break away from the monotonous, tiresome affair of making a show and being pompous! Let’s rid ourselves of materialistic things! Let’s do something that is more thoughtful and intentional (not forgetting, safe too!)
This year, surprise your partner with a romantic “night-in” curled up on your couch, with some appetizing dinner, chilled wine and a movie (or much better, a movie marathon!)
Trust me, it’s cupid approved and guarantees a lot of cuddles and snuggles! *wink wink*
