Favorite thrifted corner of our Apartment. What does “thrifting” really mean?

  Hi everyone! Happy almost Thanksgiving πŸ™‚ I wanted to share a quick post today about my favorite corner of the apartment, all decorated by some beautiful pieces i have found through thrift shopping. Ever since i started my journey towards a more sustainable lifestyle, finding creative ways to reduce plastic waste and making attempts to reduce our carbon footprint in this beautiful world, i have found immense pleasure in “thrifting”. I often mention about it on Instagram but i have never really talked about it here. I love visiting Thrift stores these days as well as resale home stores to find one-of-kind treasures & vintage finds. I could honestly spend hours inside a thrift store just browsing through vintage…

Memories from India: Slow days unplugged.

  Hi everyone! How’s it going? If you read my last post, you may already know that i haven’t been feeling quite well since last few days. Well ever since we came back from our India trip and the weather has changed drastically. Some days feel hectic. Others are extremely slow & awfully cold. But who’s to blame? This is the balance of life, not all things in life are supposed to go as planned right? On another note, i am slowly recovering from homesickness. I guess ‘the planets’ had to do something with me feeling quite empty and detached with everything around me. Retrograde really takes my mind for a ride every time it occurs. But again it’s the…

Homesickness & beyond: Life in a foreign country.

  I woke up early today feeling utterly anxious about a lot of different things. I happen to feel like that every now & then, specially when i have quite a few pending tasks but zero motivation to do anything. Since last few days i haven’t been able to sleep or focus on anything, haven’t been able to gather my thoughts either, something that i never had issues with. Everything around me and inside me seems vague, superficial and disheveled. I haven’t felt so uncomfortable inside than i have in the last few days. My recent trip to India to visit my family is the sole reason of me having to feel so restless. I have usually visited my family…

Simple Zero-waste swaps: Soap Bars

  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…
