Fall in Connecticut



A chill nip in the air and the burst of color, fall is here sprinkling the nature's confetti in our heart and mind. Living in Connecticut for the last 16 years making it home, I cherish all four seasons however, nothing beats the magical mosaic of the fall. There are many ways you can enjoy and explore the fall season in Connecticut, whether you get lost in the serene beauty of small towns or the captivating coastal region or search for seasonal flavors. State parks are the best spot for leap peeping vivid colors  in Connecticut


Things to do in fall

Driving around: Nothing beats the driving around autumn leaf-peeping. You can find spots of scenic fall beauty in every mile. Lake Waramaug, kent fall state park, stop for the overlook view at Gillette castle.


Hiking: If you love hiking, Connecticut offers you the most stunning views of new England just a hike away. Go for an easy hike in Talcott mountain and soak in the sweeping view of the city and nature or for moderate hikes, hike up to Castle Craig, or Case mountain wonder awaits you.


Pumking craving
Fall is the best time to visit all those beautiful farms, find the shape and size of the pumpkin of your imagination and of course carve a pumpkin. I love to visit Fairweather farm and Bishop farm with my kids and always bring a pumpkin for my fall decor.




Get lost in the corn maze or take a hayride
One of the favorite activities is the puzzle in the Corn maze and what a fine ride on a hayride.
I love baking pie in the fall season or you can taste all the wonderful bake goodies whether apple pie or pumpkin pie or pumpkin spiced donut or apple cider, ah so yummy.


Timing
As they say, Connecticut has the longest fall season in New England. You can spot a fascinating fall color from early October and goes till mid-November. Usually, the 3rd week and 4th week of October is the peak time however it depends on the weather conditions that year.

My favorite pieces of Assamese Traditional jewelry

My grandmother's thuria, age-old and heirloom jewelry, of course, not part-able         A piece of jewelry echoes a region's rich heritage, aesthetics and sensibilities and Assamese jewelry does not differ from that. A piece of jewelry not just enhances the wearer's beauty but identity as well.       A land of flamboyant rivers engulfed in exotic flora and fauna, birds, musical instruments Assamese jewelry is highly inspired by that. Sharing a few assamese pieces of jewelry from my personal collection.       An Assamese bride's dress up is incomplete without Assamese jewelry. Traditionally Assamese jewelry is purely handmade. The main frame is made out with 24-carat gold and lac is used as a filling material. Stones are studded on the top.  The creatively and meticulously studded stone craftsmanship resembles with pomegranate seeds. The color and texture of the stone are opulent and lurid just like pomegranate. Nowadays imitation Assamese jewelry are als

Bartaco, West Hartford , Connecticut review

It was a usual February day, the chill felt like tucking in the furry comforter and stay cozy at home. But, the matter of the fact was that it was my birthday  and my family wanted me to take out for dinner. I was reluctant and wanted to stay at home. My little one was after me and I couldn't say no. I had no clue where we were heading for dinner and then here we were at the Bartaco. Vivacious Bartaco instantly took away my winter sluggishness. With a gracious greeting, modern contemporary laid back sitting and a bit of hustle and bustle made me alive in the winter freezing February.

As a sober, I chose housemade pomegranate lemonade and hubby got grapefruit ginger juice. I never had pomegranate lemonade before, I must say it was one of the coolest and refreshing lemonade I have ever had. The tint of lemonade not just took the look but

Five Assamese motifs or designs in Assamese weave

 Assamese weave is one of the most breathable and delicate fabrics in the world. It is very wearable and light to carry in any season. The most falcrom factor of the assamese weave is the designs and motifs that add more aura and beauty to it. Today I want to share a few assamese motifs and styles. Naturally abundant Assam, Assamese motifs are also inspired by flowers, trees, birds, and animals. 1. Kinkhap - The most popular adorned motif in the assamese weave, very regal and resplendent.

The kinkhap designs consist of two lions facing each other with courage. As Ahom hailed from Thailand, this design got inspired by Thailand. Also, Kinkhap symbolizes the Ahom dynasty's brave, courage and royalty.      There are many who also believe that the word Kinkhap came from China.  2. Gos buta or
