All about women safety||Self defense pepper sprays for women

I cannot stress on the importance of safety especially girls. We envision raising a generation where girls feel secure, safe and empowered. This can be achieved by us girls knowing the safety signs that make us feel safe, knowledgeable on how to implement them and how we can stop any harm happening to us.

We all must have seen women grabbing the pepper spray and spraying it on attackers face in movies at any point of time. We live in a very active world with an active lifestyle and do not have time to search and buy safety products, pepper spray is a go-to product designed for self defense.

Many of you would have been wondering(I was too). So, I’ll tell you some of the results of using pepper spray; As the spray is highly concentrated with capsicum, it is absolutely no picnic for the attacker. The person might experience coughing, unable to speak, pain in the eyes, watering of the eyes and reddening of the skin around the eyes. The symptoms may last anywhere between 30 min to an hour. Extreme cases, it can also cause heart attack/ stroke. 

There are many brands and sizes of the pepper spray in the market. When you are shopping for one, decide on what size, type of stream and your convenience and how you are gonna use it. Is it when you are walking/running alone or walking home late at night? These factors will determine which spray will be the best fit for you. I recommend pepper gel because the spray can disperse quickly in the wind but the gel has a longer range, reduces wind blowback, and is safer for using indoors. 

That is the reason I love SABRE products, trusted by police to provide up to five times more spray than the competition—10 one-second bursts or 25 short bursts! The fact that it comes with a keychain gives you the immediate access for protection against any uninformed threats. It is a perfect addition to the daily routine and gives you that additional peace of mind. 

Finally, I just want to say be noticeable and keep an eye on your surroundings whenever you are walking in the streets. Self defense is no wrong and pepper spray is the best choice. Easy to use, carry and makes you feel protected and powerful when carrying it. If you are thinking of buying one, SABRE has an entire line to choose from.

Anything about #backtoschool excites me || Dorm room decor ideas ✨

Welcome back, a very long gap this time, but I have come up with some exciting stuff for you guys. 

COVID-19 pretty much hijacked everyone’s life, isn’t it? We’ve all sat at home more than we used to. Honestly, it’s been 5 months I’ve stepped out of the house. I have had personal pandemic issues struggling with mental health, unhopeful about the future and boredom. 

The only ray of light I’m seeing is with the schools and colleges reopening. College reopening and starting schools comes with a lot of exciting things, a new school, university, new classes, clubs, teams, friends, and…… a new dorm room.

I love to read, watch and anything about #backtoschool excites me. Combine #backtoschool with dorm décor, I’m sold. Moving into my first dorm room was by far the most exciting thing happened when starting college. 4 years and 4 rooms later, I’m still obsessed with the #backtoschool dorm décor and all the amazing and super fun and creative ways people decorate their cute spaces.

I’ve myself decorated all the walls in my room and now I’m decorating the only side of the wall left to decorate ha-ha. How you decorate your own spaces can say a lot about you. Redecorating your dorms can allow your personality shine through. You’ll feel comfortable stepping into your dorm every day, confident showing it off to your friends. Though dorms don’t have a very large space to work with, it will give a creative opportunity to discover your personal style and decorate from scratch for the first time, if you haven’t before. Now is the time to spruce up the place to make it look like exactly how you want it, as opposed to your childhood bedroom that might have the same wall paint, curtains and décor. But, sometimes the idea of redesigning a room can seem a little daunting, which brings me to our blog post today. I promise I’ll be short coz there’s a whole YouTube video coming up soon. Stay tuned for that.

I’ve partnered with Her campus X The Home Depot to bring you guys some amazing #backtoschool home décor ideas and affordable products to decorate your dorm rooms. 

Firstly, I’d definitely recommend adding an aesthetic mirror, no matter where you start. Mirrors add a whole lot of aesthetic flavour to the room. They are a great tool for reflection of one’s personality. You don’t want to pick something that every other person on your dorm floor has chosen, at the same time it should match the exact theme you are going for. If you’re looking for something aesthetically unique, the “Lana Sunburst 26.8 in. X 26.8 in. Gold Framed Mirror” is the way to go. It definitely went through with the whole leaf theme I was going for, isn’t it? Also, green and gold always form a great colour palette!

Secondly, to make your dorm feel like home, I’d recommend having some storage bowls for keeping candy, fruits. We always go home hungry from school, right? And we always crave for those quick snacks or fruit! If you’d want to store some candy/ fruit in a contemporary way, the “Hammered Oval bowl Black and Copper” is the perfect addition to dorm décor. It goes well with the whole gold theme we are going from the beginning. It looks great on the marble tabletop of your dorm room. Or if you want to take that cheese board for a picnic, this bowl is a picture-perfect décor.

That’s it for this time, you guys. I am super excited to see how you all decorate your spaces. Please don’t forget to tag me in your dorm inspo pics, I’d love to see and share them!

Happy Schooling in this fall, stay safe and healthy!

Have your ever felt that you stay in house just lounging, cooking and not caring how you look and just be however the fuck you want?

I guess we all did! Well, it’s the time. 

Spend this time to boost your immune system. Do what makes you happy. Need not be super productive. Playing cards, online  games, reading a book, making TikTok videos, creating social media content. Spend your time in a non stressful way. Just take a break from the chaos of your daily life and try to be little more happy than yesterday.

And the people stayed home. And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still. And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently.

And the people healed. And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal.

“And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed.” – beautifully written by – Kitty o’meara

Let’s hope for a better tomorrow with the better world, humans coming out of their closets with fresh minds and beautiful souls.
