#BLACKLIVESMATTER


#BLACKLIVESMATTER
Ever since I saw the video of George Floyd being murdered by a police officer in Minneapolis, like so many of you, I have been filled with anger, upset and fury.
I have been glued to twitter and the CNN news channel, following the story and the protests and I felt a huge feeling of helplessness for a while - I thought about what can I, as a British Indian Female, do to support the movement and fight for change? And whilst I acknowledge one blog post and a couple of tweets may not be able to change the racial stereotypes or institutional racism that so clearly exists across the world - We all have the shared power of our voices, which is why right now I believe we should all be using this power to stand behind the Black Lives Matter movement and spreading its awareness into all communities.

Staying Positive During Isolation


Happy Wednesday!
Firstly, thank you for all of the kind words and support everyone gave me yesterday when I published my first post in ages! I have been so overwhelmed by the messages of encouragement and it has definitely reminded me that I literally have some of the best people around me supporting me in my aim to get back into the swing of blogging!
Thanks guyssss 😼
So in today’s post I wanted to focus on the current situation we find ourselves in and share some of the things that have really helped me stay positive and actually have allowed me to ENJOY being locked up in the house for the last few weeks (& keep me optimistic for the weeks to come!)
Surprisingly, whilst I know this can be a difficult time for so many people in the world, from fearing the virus itself to struggling with not being able to continue life as usual, I feel I have managed to find the silver lining in it all and wanted to share some of the main thought processes that have helped me get through.

Aartificial is Back!


Guess who's back? Back again...

Logging into my blogger account in what seems like years seems (ok, it literally was years ago..) feels super surreal but laying in bed last night entering my third week of self isolation, I was making a list of all the things I want to achieve whilst in lockdown. I have been super determined to make the most of this time and the number one goal for me was to revive my blog and get back into a hobby that used to make me feel so happy!

I was thinking about all of the things I wanted to write about, all the topics I wanted to discuss, I was wondering who my target audience would even be this time round, wondering what direction I wanted to take this and even if it's something I'm actually going to end up maintaining. But instead of filling my mind with enough questions to talk myself out of it, I set myself a goal to just get on with it and so here I am, sitting on my bed, legs crossed with my laptop in front of me just typing away like I used to do back in the day.
