Restyle it! DIY Gemstone Shirt


I’m starting a new series called Restyle it! And I’m not starting this to be..err stylish. It’s totally out of necessity. Over the years, my house has accumulated a lot of stuff. I have scores of handbags, pen holders, boxes, notebooks, tons of craft and art material, clothes (the obvious one in the list) and right now, in the middle…

Colours in Wroclaw, Poland | part 1


Poland is a must visit in my travel book. I was just looking at all the travel photos accumulated over the years, and saw these my dad took on a trip to Wroclaw. So here’s some snippets from his trip to Wroclaw (pronounced vrots-wahf..yep, I didn’t know that either), Poland. And this is just the first part. Plenty more pictures coming up 😉…

Warm temperatures are approaching and when it gets warm, you need a cool drink! This minty watermelon juice might just be what you’re looking for.

Beautiful Block Printing and Designed Fabrics


I had the opportunity to see the starting of a beautiful new hobby with so much potential. Block printing has been around for ages, and it’s here to stay even today. I adore the fact that nowadays more people are designing their own fabrics, clothes-and Dipti Desai is also no exception. I was lucky to see her new hobby take…

Pipe Cleaner Rose Ring Tutorial (with Video!)


When we were kids, we inevitably came across pipe cleaners to craft with. You can make a lot of things with pipecleaners..I remember making octopuses, houses and some other random things. However, I never made these pipecleaner rose rings before-and my little sister taught me a new pipecleaner craft now. You can learn a lot from your younger siblings. Or…

Five easy to prepare appetizer ideas for a party!


When you decide to arrange a party, there’s just so much to plan. The biggest thing though (apart from the decorations, cleaning up, party favours, amusements in the party to keep your guests entertained..) is the food that you’ll be serving. The menu is so, so important. And the funny thing is..most people remember food served at parties. They’ll forget…

Photo Diaries | Deer in the Park


Here are some shots of some adorable deer spotted in a sanctuary park I visited! (More about that trip later.) These deer make me just so happy! Check out the pictures below: This little one seemed to be having some ‘alone’ time, out and about, away from the rest of the herd. And she/he wasn’t scared of tourists either! Of…

DIY Vision Wall


I’ve dabbled in creating vision boards on pinboards at home, and of course, there’s pinterest to make your own virtual vision boards. However, in my studio area (more coming about that later) I realised that I had a lot of wall space to create a..vision wall! I don’t know exactly how this will progress..maybe I’ll add some actual framed photos…

Fresh Potato Salad With Veggie Garnish


I don’t know about you, but I love eating fresh vegetables. This fresh potato salad with veggie garnish is not only yummy, it’s also pretty healthy too ;). It’s perfect as an appetiser before you eat lunch, and also just as a snack on its own. And.. it’s spicy, and lemony with an essence of ginger goodness. Yum! PrintFresh Potato…
