Easy breezy Indian summer outfit of the day

“I almost wish we were butterflies and liv'd but three summer days - three such days with you I could fill with more delight than fifty common years could ever contain.”  ― John Keats       This year in east cost winter was way too long. After feeling like a decade of hibernation, spring/summer finally arrives. When you step into something after long anticipation, it certainly feels precious.  Here we are not just enjoying the beautiful weather, but amping it up with summer fashion.      Just the other day I visited a friend and wore this easy breezy suit. One might not like the fitting as it is little loose fitted. Sometimes I prefer easy breezy suit in summer days, it gives you more comfort than the fitted one.  A neon pink silk kurta which I team up with a neon green sharara and a parrot green banarasi georgette dupatta. For accessories, just a pair of earring and a cocktail ring. The colors were quite statemented so you really do not need many accessories. I

Montreal food indulgence and healthy choices part 3

      In our Montreal days, we used to wake up late and loved to have full power pack brunch to kick-start a power packed day. Then the copper brunch came across. The theme intrigued me. Plant-based, environment-friendly and nutrient dense food in a fast-paced setting is convenient in a modern day setting, whether you are visiting a place or in your regular lifestyle. In a casual setting, Copper brunch menu has global-inspired organic natural and gluten-free options including bowel, sandwich, wrap, soup and healthy dessert.       I opted for Aristle -with non-GMO basil balsamic vinaigrette.

I love the whole combination of this bowel definitely innovative, super healthy and delicious with the array of colorful veggies. Yet, my minor grip was the food should look little fresher.       For our kids, we opted for

      Your any food trip won't be complete without taking a coffee or tea break. Here you will enter 1930's housed in building Boulangerie, cozy yet quirky and has quite a bit to offer with coffee, croissants or a cake, artisan bread sandwiches and moreover, they use organic flour for everything.       After sightseeing and visiting museums, we need a little rest that is not too long yet short enough to relax. And Boulangerie Pain à Tartine perfectly fits into that. A warm cup of coffee with pecan pie for me and a mango pie for the husband.       A crunchy pecan pie was perfect in every nutty bite, and moist, flavorful mango pie was wholesome with crumbly delight of freshness. These sweet and sinful treats are meant for indulging and unwinding. You might find these treats anywhere else, but the way they maintain the authenticity of the taste is quite amusing. I can assure you will not be disappointed here. You can read part 1 here...

Montreal Food- Indulgences and healthy choices part 1

      If you follow me or happen to read my last post you read Montreal top 5 coolest things to do. There I mentioned one of the coolest things is food. The food culture do talk about a place more than any other thing. Montreal food culture is enormous and vivid just like its food choices. I had been to Montreal twice but yet to cover many more.   Le Darlington - Connecticut to Montreal was about 6 hours drive. When we reached Montreal It was almost evening time. Even though it was 1st week of April, you could still feel the sharpness of cold. We decided to have our Dinner early and did not want to explore much with our young kids. Le Darlington is in Courtyard by Marriott where we also stayed.        Open high ceiling with modern contemporary interiors, Le Darlington is a chic place. A friendly welcome greeted us to our seats. We opted for soup after the long trip.  A savory bowl of  Italian soup with mix beans. Mild in taste yet serves you a good deal on a cold winter ev
