Watch Hill, Rhode island - unforgettable summer retreat

The Last few days of summer were hellishly hot in CT and when we escaped to Watch Hill, RI it was a serene and sublime retreat.  We left Watch hill but our hearts still stayed. Apart from being infamous for Tylor Swift's holiday home it also has the oldest Flying Horse Carousel continuously operating in the united states. And the cherry on top is the Ocean House Hotel which adorns Watch Hill with its iconic existence. Watch Hill is at the southernmost point of Rhode Island and is a hidden gem. Consisting of 629 acres, NewEnglands, one of the most affluent neighborhoods, is Rhode Island's most well-kept secret. It's filled with boutiques, art galleries, cafes, and more with quintessential New England Charm.

It is not just utterly offbeat, but there is some kind of uniqueness, for sure.

If you want to unwind and rejuvenate yourself, escape from the monotony of life, or enjoy the beach, sand, and sun, this idyllic summer town is a perfect place. 

What to do

 Napatree Point …this charming beach is not just a regular beach, but with beautiful views are a bonus. If you are not a beach person or have a shortage of time, just take a hike, and you won’t be disappointed at all with what you see and feel. 

Watch Hill Lighthouse... I always visit this lighthouse during sunset and am always awarded the most beautiful views of how the Sun melts with the sea. Walking through the surroundings of the lighthouse with the sea and the path it takes to the lighthouse with luxurious houses is an experience of its own, especially when summer blooms with hydrangeas. 

Have a Moonlit Dinner in Ocean House... Whether you are staying in Ocean House or not but you must have dinner in one of the restaurants with the perks of the ocean view. 

Ocean House has a few restaurants, but we decided on Dalia by Danton Valle, a modern Mexican restaurant that took us to our great food experience in Tulum. With delectable, delicious food and great service, I must mention our server, Bryon, from the land itself, Mexico. We had one wonderful experience with a moonlit dinner that was just perfect if you are visiting by yourself, as a couple, or as a family. 


  1. Great post! My husband and I stayed at the Ocean House after our wedding and it was fantastic! We have been wanting to go back and we will have to check out your other suggestions on where to visit!

  2. RI is such a magical place in the summer!

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
