Indian minimalist festive look

  What if life is all about fun and happiness. Perfect but a bit boring. My Dad used to say life will throw you in situations where you have to face problems but that does not mean you can't get over it,  you face it and resolve it as well. 2020 hasn't been the best year for my family. First, we lost our Dad , then one of my Aunt got hospitalized and now another Aunt is severely ill. Yet, does it mean we don't celebrate or rejoice the beautiful and simple things in life? As simple as eating a good meal with the family, taking a walk, a hearty conversation with friends, and dressing up can lighten up your life when things are not going accordingly. Just the other day happiness was wearing an old pink traditional kanjivaram saree. I teamed up with a turquoise blue banarasi blouse that went well with the border of the saree and pink matte lipstick on my lips and soft wavy curls on my hair. And I accessorized it with large hear shape Ruby and gold pendant and a light gold bangl

Indian festive Look 1, 2020

     Last year around this time, I was bombarded with so many outfit posts especially, Indian inspired as this time kick starts the Indian festive season. As now we are coexisting with Covid-19 , social appearance is really limited and of course, dressing up as well.  But, the other day I was invited to my neighbor's place for Lord Krishna's birthday, which we called Krishna Janmashtami. As Covid-19 is in my mind,  with full precaution, I decided to attend, as I have wonderful memories of Krishna Janmashtami celebration of those idyllic days of childhood and growing up. Also, took the opportunity for dressing up. Interestingly, I have kurta and skirt in Banarsi Silk motif of Vrindavan, the birthplace of Lord Krishna and blue Banarasi Dupatta and antique silver necklace and earring with a silver bangle. The look is simple enough for casual get together and dressy enough for any low key celebration.  I finished with silver sandals and a blue bindi. Do you know in Indian culture

Buttonwood Farm Sunflower festival and noble cause in Connecticut

"Light-enchanted sunflower, thou Who gazest ever true and tender On the sun's revolving splendour."  Pedro Calderon de la Barca I have been a sunflower adherent but not as much until I saw the Buttonwood sunflower farm. Tucked away from the claustrophobic city, this serene scene of sunflowers in quint town Griswold, thousands of sunflowers blooming in 14 acres of land is surreal. About 50 miles away from the capital of CT, Hartford this picturesque farm enhanced with meadows and barn houses, historic stone walls and cows, and of course, farm-made ice cream also contributes towards a great cause. A bunch of fresh-cut sunflowers will cost you a $10.00 donation and 100% of the proceeding goes to   Sunflowers-For-Wishes   for children with critical illnesses. If you happen to live nearby or visit this area make sure to witness this gorgeous farm and also contribute towards the noble cause.  It was my pleasure to visit last weekend.
