Pool Hair, Don’t Care

Nxtstop maitri PatelAugust, in other words, Sunday of summer. Where my friends and I have decided to soak up the sun as MUCH as we could. There is no better way to soak up the sun other than at a pool, am I correct or am I correct you guys?

9 AM was the time we got done eating our breakfast, made lunch, packed our baskets and headed out to the pool. We literally spent about 5 hours there, it was SO, SO much fun. The beautiful cold clear water, the sun shinning above our heads, laying on a beach chair and enjoying the summer as planned in mid-April. Spending a joyful day with your girls in the summer is so therapeutical. It boosts up your energy level and gets you back on your feet and ready to get moving.

There is truly not much to say except for the fact that today was a well spent day. To top it up, I wore my travel hat from NxtSTOP. This hat comes in black and white but I received the one in white. It was a cherry on top to my outfit since my bathing suit is turquoise top and white shorts.

Happy Mother’s Day, Maa (and to all the wonderful moms out there)!

Do you see this lady here? Yes, she is mi Madre. The one who I cherish, appreciation and care for the most in the whole world. Though we bicker and get on each other’s nerve the most, there is no other person who I could envision my life without.

She has been there through thick and thin, to the moon and back, and to infinity and beyond.

I still remember, when I was in elementary school, I wouldn’t listen to her or sit still when she would do my hair. Haha, she got annoyed with me and asked my dad to cut all my hair so she doesn’t have to deal with me, not remaining still and look like a mess.

Aaaand, the days I have off from campus we would have breakfast/lunch and literally, LITERALLY. gossip about anything and everything. She would share her life with me and I would share mine with her. She would share her experiences with me to when she was a youth and how life moves on, people move on and all of this is temporary. Talks with her would encourage me to achieve the greatest of all and motivate me.

There are innumerable memories with this woman and if I were to list them, it would be a never-ending list.

She is my mother, best friend, role model, my rock and most importantly, MY PERSON.

My mother is MY PERSON. Maitri Patel | Elegance Of SimplicityMaitri Patel | Elegance Of Simplicity

Women’s Conference🌺

wc-bannerI was invited to The BAPS Women’s Conference 2017 where all the women get together to discuss numerous leadership topics, promote culture and ethnic pride in our upcoming generations. Each year, thousands of women from diverse backgrounds and age group gather to learn from each other and build a powerful bond within our society.

Last year’s theme was Moving Forward.

Last year, the conference featured inspiring speakers, interactive learning, and purposeful networking to support women further in their personal and professional lives, taking a step in the right direction.The convention served as an occasion to share difficulties in the chase of enthusiasm and inspired members to introspect on how to grow further qualified leaders. The exceptional speakers explored key concepts of compassion, indulgence, and determination through sharing their individual stories of leadership.

This year, the theme of BAPS Women’s Conference was Resolutions: Bonds That Liberate.

This year’s theme mainly focused on positive resolutions that change lives by turning habits: accepting ownership, performing hard work, and making sacrifices. The conference directed on how one can enhance responsibility and accountability within her home, family, career, community, and spiritual advancement without feeling overwhelmed. The audience learned that hard work requires dedication and commitment to finding a solution without falling apart. The conference also went over the importance of putting other’s needs above ours which I thought was very important.
