Lavender pond farm, Killingworth Connecticut

In the havoc of Covid19, most of us are almost losing our sanity. But, going outdoors with proper precautions and spending some time amid nature can unwind and uplift the mood a little bit. A few weeks back I was mesmerized in Rose Garden.

Behold...about 30 miles south from Hartford, the capital of Connecticut enfolds a little slice of a dream called  Lavender pond farm in  Killingworth, CT.  Well bedded demure scented delicate colored thousands of lavender flowers bring smiles to anyone's face and enlighten the mind to melt away your stress level.

In a white gazebo in the center, to gaze the lavender or to capture photo moments, benches to sit, colorful beehives smitten by the beauty of flowers are just not the only facts to makes you fall in love with this place. But an exotic pond with water Lilly pods and a little covered bridge, a scenic walk to unfold the serenity of the lush green surroundings in this charming place. A little white train with a ride is also available yet easy to walk with the little one around. A little quaint gift shop with tons of small goodies to bring home memories as well. Life-size chess, picnic spots, friendly staff, is a wonderful time to spend a couple of hours or a day with family or friends.  An inspiring story behind the owner who gives back this wonderful world something wonderful is a must-visit when you are in this area.

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

Keeping it simple-random things about me

Hello my dear readers, how are you all doing? Summer vacation has just started here on the east coast. My kids are having a gala time. I can't tell you how time is flying. My time is all occupied by them. Taking to them, playing with them, take them to the library, reading stories and most importantly cooking their favorite food. Hence thought, I'll keep it simple and straightforward. It has been more than a year now, and I have shared so many things about my life, travel, fashion, etc. Today I'll share a few random thoughts about me. 1. My favorite color - Navy blue, peach and off-white. Not that I don't wear any other color, but those colors are readily available in my wardrobe. 2. My favorite outfit - In western I love to wear a crisp white top and blue jeans. I know very casual. In Indian, I love sarees. Mostly, I love handwoven and handwork ones. I love salwar kurta too. You will find more solid colors then prints or patterns in my wardrobe. 3. Am I fitnes

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
