You lift my heart up when the rest of me is down

Ahhhh Finally some nice warm weather to enjoy.  Got my hands on the ever popular Zara Culotte Skort  – got some interesting comments on them (looks like a napkin or an apron) but I can’t get over the oragami style and the fact that they are soooo comfy!

What I’m Wearing: Zara Skort & Tshirt | Unbranded Necklace | MK Watch | Bangles from the P.A.T.H

Actually wore this to do some hosting for our families this Father’s Day.  Other than that, spent majority of the weekend cooking!  Soup, Fish Tacos, Melted Cookies with Ice Cream, Home Made Meatballs, Home Made Pasta Sauce and lots of Mangos from our fav Mango Lady in ChinaTown.  I think I need to go on a model diet for the next two weeks…

Nicole by OPI: Sealed with a Kris

I do love me a little …ox blood?! Well yes this nail colour is the perfect red for Fall.  Equally important is how well it compliments my skin tone.  I should know, can’t tell you how many maroon-burgandy polishes I tried.  Additionally this polish goes well with the salwar suit I’m wearing today.  Time for some fireworks!

Happy Diwali!!

Our family weekend was filled with food (& Nebula nails).

The under cover foodie in me managed to captured some footage of the goods. Fried fish, Thai Prawns, Red Chocolate / Velvet cupcakes, Cheese Danish and Pecan tarts.

We also were able to check out a new brunch place and bakery in Leslieville…The Eggs Bernadette were amazing (and plated quite nicely), but I was too embarrassed to pull out the 50mm – I really need to get over that.

Karva Chauth Pt 2

The outfit I chose for my Karva Chauth fast was a Red Sari, Red Churiyan and my Kundan Set (gifted to me by my in laws).

I love wearing Indian clothes.  I feel beautiful and exotic EVERY time I’m in them – a feeling that doesn’t come that easily with ’western clothing’.  Indian clothes are timeless (I mean which other 5 yards of fabric could be worn for decades and decades with minimal changes!!), sexy and extravagant!  I think everyone should wear Indian clothes at least once in their lifetime.  To an Indian wedding or just because – definitely a must have fashionista experience.

 

Karva Chauth Pt 1

It is a fact of life that Indian, especially Hindu culture gives the utmost importance to matrimony. (Apr 1, 2001 – M. Subramaniam)

Pictured above are the traditional activities we took part in before breaking my fast.
Karva Chauth gives yet another opportunity to display a whole new dimension of the bond between husband and wife. It’s a rite of passage for a married Indian woman and a celebration of the life she has chosen with her husband and her family.
