Hello Guys,

Been a while since I hi5ed! So this week’s edition is going to be a little all over the place so please bear with me! 🙂 I want to wish all my Indian readers a happy Navarathri. This was one of my favorite times of the year back home – arranging  and creating elaborate scenes featuring my favorite dolls and insisting that the string lights be on all day, much to my mom’s annoyance 😉

Due to lack of space, dolls and patience I was unable to do this for the last few years but since I don’t have any of the above excuses now I TRIED this time. Next year we will be more prepared with a legit padi as opposed to a bookshelf 😛img_30212. Obviously this also means dressing the part!fullsizerender3. Went on a 4 day trip to New York on work for a show at the Javits! How does a place change so much in a few months? You tell me! 4. Took a drive into the natural bridge wildlife ranch. Among other things we took a video of a zebra slobbering all over our car window but obviously you get to see this quite guy instead 😀5. Kuzhipaniyarams are so easy to make, provided you have the pan. Now I do! 😛img_2900Have a wonderful week! Eat well my friends 🙂

Floraled!

I found this floral dress on a rack at H&M some place and liked the fact that some designer had thought to put 2 pleats below the waist to accommodate a burrito belly! 😛  Its not the most flattering dress per say but the fact that you don’t need to wear spanx or have a salad for lunch makes me really warm up to it! I may have gone a little over board with the earrings but but but YOLO or something?! 😀 Happy Fringed Floral Friday Folks!

  1. My mantra – Put chocolate on everything!! Pancakes with a serious tan! 😀IMG_24632. A quick trip to Austin to meet family 😀 IMG_23793. Sci fi – sold, 80s – sold …..Binge watching? Of course! 4. The faces I make when I am served food are the best kind of faces! The Cold platter at Empire Grill brings out the animated best in me 😛 Unbenannt-15. Curry leaves are such an integral part of south indian cooking but hard to find at the local grocery! So we decided to grow it at home 🙂 IMG_2296Have a wonderful week and may you always do what you are afraid of! 😀
