I ❤ Black
Colors are the smiles of nature ~ Leigh Hunt
We all love colors, don't we? A child is attracted towards brighter colors, a teenager finds romance in red, we all make blue the most loved color in the world but there is one color which can never go wrong. And when it comes to making a style statement, it's is our first choice. Yes, I am talking about Black. The color of desire, style, and one that never goes out of fashion. There are many who claim it's their favorite but for me - I simply ❤ Black!
Any color - so long as it's black ~ Henry Ford
My craze for black is evident in my gadgets, car, furniture; you can find all shades of black in my house - charcoal, ink, ebony, raven, soot and sometimes even in my jet black hair. There are a few things I absolutely desire. My list is luxurious, desirable, sexy and most importantly - Black. Here's it is -
In my desire list, the first thing is a Black Mont Blanc Pen. It's classy, elegant and timeless. Mont Blanc is the number one brand in writing instruments and their products are luxury personified. There is nothing more a blogger can desire than a book and a pen. Paper to pen their thoughts on and a pen that glides on paper. And when it comes to the pen, Mont Blanc Meisterstuck is my favorite from their collection. Why, you ask? For starters, it has hand engraved gold nib. Writing with it is like rubbing your hand on paper and pouring silk. It's the quill that speaks of style and luxury, and trust me, holding it in your hands is a moment of pride. Oh yes, I held it in my hands once but couldn't afford to buy it and it has been on my desire list since.
Some spend their entire monthly salary on a suave black leather jacket and girls with hourglass figure flaunt their bodies in little black dress. Few, like me, who try to hide the unwanted and desire to look good take rescue to the traditional attires. Now, why only black? Apart from being my choice of color for parties, it camouflages the bulge perfectly. Fair, dusky, short, plump; it suits all body and skin types. Black is a visually slimming color. I want to have a black designer saree to both make a style statement and to look slim. So, next on my list is a black designer saree. The whole nine yards of grace to wear in a party or wedding. I love the way saree hugs the gentle contours of a woman's body and accentuates her beauty. No other dress can match its level of sensuousness. If you don't agree, look even Katrina looks her best in a saree.
If there is one thing I wear in makeup then it's a mascara. I never step out of my place without a nice dose of mascara to my lashes. Yes, that's why I flutter my eyes like a Hindi film heroine. And when you love something so much then there is always the highest of its version that your heart desires. In my list that's Guerlain Noir G Mascara. It has the blackest of colors and with its super soft brush, it fluffs and curls up your lashes like no other brand. Not only that, it comes with a refillable case which opens up to reveal a mirror for easy touch-ups. In a girl's world, there are only two words for it - Must Have! And I want a free lifelong supply of it.
To cruise in luxury and style, I want this beauty in my driveway. This is the new Mercedes of India. I am talking about BMW. This is on my desire list since my friend bought BMW 320d. I drove it and to sum up my experience in a sentence, all I can say is - It's not a car, it's jet on wheels. But I want a higher version of this brand - BMW 520d and that too in black color. If you want to make a style statement on wheels, this luxury sedan in black is the answer. This is the ultimate desire of many men out there and I'm lucky to share it with the one in my family who can buy it for me. Are you reading this, dear husband?
Last but not the least, I want a black cat. You may say it's inauspicious and brings bad luck. Wait, first, I don't believe in any superstitions and second, in many countries, it's considered lucky to have a black cat on your porch. Good or bad, I need a black cat. Why? A lady in a black designer saree, wearing expensive Guerlain Noir G Mascara, driving a BMW 520d would surely get the black envious stare. A black cat will be my answer to those going green with envy - Buri nazar wale tera muah kala. I want a pet since long. This furry creature will give me the company I need and dispel all the envy around.
In the end, all I can say is -
A heart wants what a heart wants and it's all black!
