Just a Click Away

Parenting is a the most challenging job that I have recruited myself for. Sounds isn't. Being a mother is like running a government, where challenges are thrown at you every second and by the very people you love the most in the world, your little big hunny bunnies.                        Sometime back, my dear darling daughter wanted to go on a 5 days adventure trip to Corbett. The school had made it mandatory for every student of 5th grade to attend it. And my little girl was way too excited to go on an excursion with school friends and that too for 5 long days. I tried my best to dissuade her, to the extent of bribing her, but in vain. I felt as if a volcano has erupted in my brain, a volcano of thousand questions. She had never gone alone anywhere, not even for a single day! How is she going to manage all that ? Who will take care of her ? What if something happens? ...... I knew I had to let her go, for her own good. She needs to learn to take care of herself

Black Swan

Remember, the 2010 blockbuster movie by the name Black swan, where Natalie Portman played a ballerina. Natalie Portman swept all the major awards including the prestigious Academy Award for the best actress that year. I loved that movie and was mesmerized by Portman, I must confess..... But, why am I talking about the movie, you guys must be wondering!!!, the post that I am doing takes an inspiration from there..... No, I didn't do it on purpose, but the moment I donned that beautiful black long slit top, I felt like a Diva. Sometimes, a simple piece of clothing can have that impact on you. As far as this top is considered, I got this from THE PRETTY GIRLZ KORNER, the start up retailing through some top notch e-com sites, bringing stylish stuff for affordable pricing.  Black has this beautiful quality to create a slimming silhouette. The long slits in the middle and sides adds sophistication while the zipper in gold lends it a royale charm. And it fitted lik

The joy of gifting with Threadcasa

Diwali  shopping may not always be easy, but the look on a loved one’s face when you give them a gift that’s just right makes it all worth it. Imagine a gift that could let you bring that kind of joy for someone you love.  Every year, I am in a dilemma, as to what gift shall I give to my best friends on Diwali. You go gifts- hunting to the swankiest malls and all they have is the usuals - chocolates, cookies, silver, decorative items, glassware n stuff like that. I am super tired of receiving these myself, so it was not even an option now. I started brainstorming and after much deliberation, I got an "idea".                                                 Ever since, I did a blogpost on my #Threadcasa bag, my friends went ga-ga over it. So what better than a gorgeous Threadcasa piece. Threadcasa is a #Makeinindia startup, dealing in bags - totes, slings, clutches.pouch....which are awesome and affordable. Available in vibrant hues, these go well with eth

Twilight summers

Hi !!! All, how are you guys doing? Enjoying the festivities, ehh ....well, this is the most beautiful time of the year, the official "patakha time". Diwali is just around the corner and we are already in the midst of celebrations....aren't we??  This is "that" time of the year, when gambling is in vogue or how would you explain about the numerous cards party, you are invited to....  Most of the time, all of us are in our ethnic best... Sarees, ghaghras, shararas, anarkalis ..........Of course ! We love dressing up for the evening in the traditional attire, for a sessions of cards with the bubbly flowing. But, that's for the evening/ night, where being a bit "overdressed" works fine as with Indian wear, you need to wear some jewellery  like a pair of earrings or a neck piece or a maang tikka/ passa with cocktail ring thrown in.  In-between, we have our girlfriends bash, which are a day thing like brunch, lunch, tambola party, card session
