Life in a foreign country: Things i have loved and missed about India all these years.

Wearing a Textile Gajra (Hair accessory): Check out Pure Ghee designs for amazing varieties of textile Gajras & jewelry. Mix and matched an old cotton dress with a handloom cotton dupatta from Jaypore. Silver Earrings with intricate work: Shyle by Astha   Hi everyone! First of all, a little late but Happy 72 years of Independence to our beloved country and to one another. If i could describe the word “Independence” in my words, is to be able to live my life in my own way, on my own terms, without being burdened by any unjustified social norms or preconceived notions; slow and intentional, just the way i had always wished for. It’s a privilege to have a freedom of…

Habit shift: Logging off from the world everyday.

  The flowers outside our apartment have begin to disappear, reminding me of the same time last year when i literally didn’t realize how the summer was over in a blink of an eye. Since wildflowers are the love language i prefer, i wish summer stayed a little longer. But we still have some time left to follow our summer dreams & soak in the sun for a few more weeks.

Although most of the binging has been quite intentional and positive, which honestly really helped…

Wildflowers and Sunny days: My plans for this summer.

Yellow Kala cotton dress/kurta: The Indian Ethnic co. Textile Gajra/Hair accessory: Pure Ghee Designs Flower Basket/ Planter: Amazon   This post is partially an ode to the long sunny days we have been waiting for to come by ever since spring arrived, and partially an ode to my favorite pastime which is walking around open fields and picking up wildflowers.

Feeling an extreme sense of…

  Begumpuri tant handloom saree: Mayaz Boutique (Buy it here: Instagram,Β Facebook) Tribal Necklace:Β Preciousyou.in   There are days when i feel so much more motivated about life and the things i do on a daily basis, these are the days i finally take out my journal and write these long posts πŸ˜€ but look at the uncertainty of life, not all days are same, and not all days are good days either! Yesterday I felt little off, irritated and pretty much blah all the way around. I am not entirely sure why. I wanted to take a day off from everything & quietly let the day get over with no talking or anything. I had decided to finish this blog post…
