I am taking part in a Photo a day challenge for June 2016. 
The prompt for the 4th of June is 'Reflection' and the above is my picture for the prompt.

I love colours. I love my Birkenstocks. My feet get cold enough for me to wear socks at home the moment the temperature dips a little. Enough said.

Since I haven't been writing/blogging at all, and I REALLY want to I thought I would use the prompts to attempt to write short stories too. 

Below is my story for the prompt, Reflection.

She watched the mirror as she combed her hair till every errant strand was tucked away firmly.
Earrings were hooped onto the earlobes, and then exchanged for studs that twinkled on them.
A coating of lip color was applied and then dabbed away till it left just a faint blush.
The bindi was adjusted thrice, till it was deemed perfectly positioned.
Kohl brought out the velvety brown of her eyes.
‘How do I look, Mama?’ her daughter turned and asked, smiling.

The mother looked at her reflection and smiled, ‘Beautiful, my love’
