Visting Montemerchy fall in Quebec and teamed it up Assamese jewelry with a contemporary outfit


If you follow my blog then you must have read my last two weeks' posts on "Quebec City...rekindles and reminisces romance with the past" and "Where to eat in Quebec City "During our last stay in Quebec City, we visited Montemerchy fall, which is just about 15 miles from Quebec City. 83 meters high with a picturesque landscape is a must-visit if you are visiting Quebec City. 

A beautiful walk with a few vantage points where you can see the fall close or from some you can see a panoramic view of the fall. If you don't want to you are still covered as they offer cable cars too. If you are an outdoor enthusiast you are covered they have a zip line and rock climbing too. For us, it was an easy walk and charmed by the beautiful view work out. 

For this easy breezy excursion, I chose a maxi dress and a jeans jacket and club this look with a piece of Assamese jewelry. More often than not Assamese pieces of jewelry are worn with a traditional dress. There was a time when wearing traditional Assamese jewelry in contemporary dress was almost elusive. But, nowadays thanks to creative individuals or designers who came up with such ideas that still keep up the traditional soul of the piece yet add a modern twist to it. You can easily team up such a piece of jewelry with an everyday outfit. It not just elevates the look but adds a different esthetic dimension to this look. This statement necklace consists of a large pendant which is called Hen in the Assamese language ( Kite bird). Like all Assamese jewelry this piece is also inspired by nature, a bird.

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. The high ceiling, ivory walls, earthy light shades stroked a tropical vibe and the food spoke a lot about Mexico and Latin America. 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
