Sparkle #72: Vintage Vibes

I really like compiling the Wednesday ‘In Vogue’ posts. I love fashion, art, design and I am always on the lookout for whats new in terms of trends, colors and silhouettes. I have to say I agree with Carrie Bradshaw when she says “I like my money right where I can see it – hanging in my closet!”. Not so long ago, I wrote about Sabyasachi and his Summer Resort 2015 collection. Florals, sequins and lace came together in delightful combinations on flowing fabrics and easy silhouettes. The end result was a range of stunning yet immensely wearable pieces. Sabyasachi recently released his print ad campaign…

Sparkle #67: Leh Ladakh Road Signs

Aloha everyone! Have you heard of the breathtakingly beautiful region of Leh & Ladakh? Ladakh is a part of the mountainous state of Jammu & Kashmir, India, and a visit to the region will leave you mesmerized and speechless. A landscape dotted with amazing peaks, flowing rivers, mighty glaciers and bright blue skies – nature at its untamed best! Add to it the simple lifestyle, Buddhist culture (Ladakh is known to have the largest number of monasteries), rich food and you have a recipe for the most amazing travel experience ever! I was very fortunate to visit this magical land in August 2013, and will share memories from…

Spring in the Garden

Blooming flowers,  a riot of colors, butterflies in the garden, flute music from the street musician, pleasant fragrances and cool breezes – spring is a time for magic, love, hope, new dreams and fresh beginnings. I love how each year on spring, our home comes alive with the promise of a new tomorrow.   Title: Spring in the Garden Location: Katyals, South Extension, Delhi, India Date: March 2015

Sparkle #48: Amazing Latte Art

Happy Thursday everyone! Inspired by my last week’s photo of the week, I thought I would do a post covering some amazing examples of latte art captured by people around the world!

It can also be created by drawing in the top layer of foam in the latte. It is not easy to create latte art, the milk and espresso needs to be at certain conditions and the final outcome depends largely on the skill of the barista…
