You Are Enough!

Hello all you sparkly people and warm wishes for a wonderful 2019 filled with much love and light! I am already getting good vibes from this year, specially because am starting it on such a positive note – coming back to writing and my blog! For those of you who follow me religiously and for those who stumbled upon this space by chance, you would have noticed that I took a break from writing around 2 years ago. The last couple of months have been packed with action – lots of soul searching, losing and finding myself, professional and personal…

Over the last few years, I have collected and parked a lot of memories and a whole lot more objects in…

Trip of a Lifetime: Kashmir, Leh, Ladakh: Part 1

Hello wonderful people and happy Sunday! I woke up feeling real good this morning.

If I call Paris my teenage crush, then Kashmir is definitely my first love! I undoubtedly have the travel bug, I fall in love with places in an instant. I was 8 years old when I first discovered the beauty of Kashmir while participating in an art project. It was on my travel list for a long time before I finally got the chance to…
