Let me start by thanking you for taking time out and reading this blog – for some one taking my first baby steps into the blogging world this is immensely comforting! If I look familiar, you’ve probably seen me strolling around the city, lost in thought or clicking away at whatever interests me! Either way let me introduce myself…I am a 24-year-old fashion enthusiast who graduated recently from the Parsons school of design.Born and raised all my life in India, this is my first experience abroad and I consider myself privileged to have landed up in a fascinating city like New York. Living in Brooklyn and spending the better part of my time in Manhattan makes me feel like I have the best of both worlds and I try to make the most of it!

While I am not inundated with mundane chores, I enjoy a good book, retail therapy( like duh!) movies and music. I consume blogs with a studious voracity and love the creative freedom it empowers the writer with! Like how some blogs have inspired me with my little venture, if my blog manages to pique half that interest in someone, I’d consider it a job well done! Be assured that I will do my best :)

PS: Please do let me know how I can do better  by leaving your feedback, or mailing me!
