Quick Restyle: Gold Accented Tote Bag


Hello everyone! Sorry about the lack of posts for the past few days, but if you read this, you know I’m cleaning and organising like I’ve (probably) never done before..ever. And when I was cleaning up a storm in my room, I just happened to find this tote bag that I hadn’t used for more than ..say, five years? I…

A 30 Day Cleaning Journey (Starting Now!)


This is just always on the top of my to-do list, but I never actually find time to do it. Or even start. What am I talking about? Cleaning up my workplace(s). To be fair, there’s been quite a bit of renovation going on for the past year..painting the walls, some major DIY-worthy projects, customised furniture..the works. And I’m going…

Check out the pictures below to get a feel of this town! Telephone wires are literally everywhere. There are just so many cars everywhere, which clashes…

Fresh Mango Milkshake


Summer. Mangoes. A fresh mango milkshake. Waiting on your table, as a pick me up after work, or just as a yummy addition after a meal. That’s what I’m talking about. That’s the promise of this amazing milkshake that basically rejuvenates you with fruity goodness and gets your senses tingling with the richness of that mango. I’m loving this mango…

Memories from a 100 year old home in Rajasthan, India


I had been in Rajasthan for more than a month back in April, and I had the opportunity to explore many different homes and places. One place that really captured my interest was this 100 year old home (possibly more than that). Presently, the owners didn’t live in the large house, fully encompassing more than 30 rooms (approximately). Instead they…
