  Hi everyone! If you have been reading here for a while, you would know that i have been trying to make some significant changes in my lifestyle, switching to low waste eco-friendly products. While I have already shared a long list of all the swaps/shifts we have already made so far and the ones we are working on right now, I thought it would be helpful to talk about a few in more detail.   Soap Bars I am going to be honest here, I feel that this is probably the easiest zero waste swap here: the switch from a liquid hand soap or body wash that comes in a plastic bottle to a good old-fashioned bar of soap…

Pictures of recently enjoyed moments: Baby Brownie

  Yesterday i used the little “poll” feature on my Instagram stories asking everyone if they find my pictures more “Editorial” type or “in the moment” capturing little joys of life. To that, surprisingly some people did find my pictures to be quite Editorial. I can’t deny that because i certainly capture the little moments i enjoy in a certain way and absolutely love creating a cohesive grid so that it portrays my life just the way it is, finding happiness in little things, which might make it look like quite Editorial or well planned. + The moments i capture in my pictures are real and in-time. If there’s anything editorial about it, it is the creativity i put into…

Habit shift: Starting my day with Ginger + Mint infused Green Tea.

  4:30 in the evening and i just finished my evening tea with a pre-cooked snack because i certainly didn’t had time to cook something fresh. With that said, you may have understood that i am having a very busy day. Too many tasks on my plate and literary not enough time. I think it is one of those days when all the little tasks that i have been avoiding or delaying falls together on one particular day leaving me either overwhelmed by the burden or taken aback by the number of tasks i can finish in one day (which is a lot btw). I am quite sure there are people like me in this world who could definitely relate…
