  The home of world-renowned institutes Harvard and MIT and its intriguing history, Boston makes an irresistible destination for any travelers or history buff. Here are many neighborhoods steeped in history that will take you through the time gone by, Beacon Hill is such a bonafide destination with a European feel that takes you back to revolutionary times yet a sheer blend of cosmopolitan city neighborhoods. It is filled with homes with stately architecture with Victorian style, one-of-a-kind boutique antique stores, and cozy coffee shops on narrow winding streets with gas-lit lamps that make you visit this charming and sought-after historic neighborhood in any season. Beacon Hill is home to many influential personalities including William Blaxton original owner of Beacon Hill, an early English settler in New England and the 1st European settler of Boston and Rhode Island, Renowned poet Robert Frost , Nathaniel Hawthorne Academy Award-nominated actress Uma Thurman and many more.

Fall in New Hampshire a new guide

The best part of living in New England is its natural beauty. Here each season is unique and elusive. But, when it comes to the fall season it’s splendid. This time I visited New Hampshire . Every visit to NH, always find something new and it inspires me to return again and again.  Even though I have posted a blog about fall in NH before, Today I will post some old and new found places to visit and things to do in NH during fall. Artists Bluff Trailhead - One of the most scenic views and vistas engulfing Echo Lake and Canon Mountain this 1.5-mile hike trail is surely worth visiting. A sheer mix of exploration and challenge, it is a little steep and rocky, but the view is breathtaking. The only drawback is it is overcrowded. If you want to beat the crowd, choose early sunrise or weekdays. A good gripping shoe is a must.  Crawford Notch State Park - Compared to the white mountain Crowford Notch is a little less talked about yet, this is one of the places truly charming whether you are

Global Fashion Collective NYFW S/S24 -Hyper Culture Collection and Justin Jacob Louis

I have been attending the NYFW Global Fashion Collective for the last couple of seasons. It's always wonderful to experience shows by many talented designers from across the globe and cross-culture.Global Fashion Collective has always left us impressed by bringing such a forefront of the NYFW which they are known for.  - This time I attended two shows, the 1st was by Hyper Culture Collection.  This runway show was unveiled with casual smart, quirky, ready-to-wear pieces. Designer Satoshi Shinada's creativity behind this brand's denim, jersey, and sweatshirt with graffiti and interesting phrases dominated this collection. A couple walking as a bridegroom patronizing jeans attire in the runways indeed added innovation and an out-of-the-box idea. The whole collection is vibrant and youthful with a dose of rebelliousness. The 2nd show was by Justin Jacob Louis, his debut in NYFW was unfolded with indigenous dancing surely heartwarming aspirational, and energetic. There are goo

What to wear for NYFW

Hi There, For the first time, I missed my 1st Show this season in NYFW as the weather has been really bad on the East Coast. T orrential  downpours and power cuts had happened, which was enough reason to create gridlocks. I usually stay in New York during NYFW , but this season I had 3 shows on the same day and I decided not to stay in the city but to return the same day to cope with my kid's busy schedules. Our home to NYC is a 2-hour drive and today it took 4 hours, so I couldn't attend my 1st show as most shows run on time.  However, I wanted to share what I wore for the show. How I decide what to wear for the show. It takes a lot of thought and ideas to create an ideal look to attend such a show. Looking good is just one criteria, but the look should be such that it not only creates an impact but at the same time it should align with your personal style. A statement look is always good for Big 4 and uncomfortableness is the last thing we opt for. In addition, we have to k

Bandra, Mumbai .....connecting, creating and coexisting

A few years back when I visited Mumbai , I touched the major tourist spots in Mumbai. After a few years, now I got the chance to visit a few neighborhoods in Mumbai . Bandra is one of the most popular neighborhoods. Synonym to the residence of many Bollywood celebrity's homes. Growing up in the 90s as a kid in India, there is no way you are not exposed to Bollywood. Bollywood is not just about movies but also about star-studded life. Back then, the was no influence of social media yet heard about the affluent suburb of Mumbai Bandra where many stars reside. In the 20s people who visit Mumbai make sure to visit Bandra to see Manat Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan's home. Also, to get a glimpse of the superstar. Today's Bandra is hip utterly modern filled with a great fashion hub, great eateries, art music, and many more. Encompassed by the Arabian Sea, Bandra conjures the co-existence of cultures, communities, religions, and financial status. Where standing tall is the Moun
