It's Diwali..

.. yet again! I think I stopped counting anymore the number of festivals I've been missing over the past few years. But you cannot really avoid Diwali. Can you? It is something special. 

Though I was and am not so much into fireworks because our little puppy is scared of them, I still love the feel of the festival surrounding me while everyone else celebrates it. 

That is what we miss here. Fireworks happen only on New Year's. And if we hear them any other time, we have to look through the news to know why and where it happened. We still do have a small Indian community that does the fireworks on Diwali, if permitted.

We feel a lot of country-sick rather than home sick during festivals. Just to avoid this, instead we dress up, meet at events, have loads of food and do some fun. Ahh that festive food back home.. how much I miss it! I can't even..!

This is the story of our lives.  

Happy Diwali everyone!

Coming to the outfit, this lehenga is a gift from my nephew on his first birthday. OK, I know he is just too young to do that but I really like their idea of return gifts. 

Orange and pink is my all time favorite combo. When I saw these colors and the simplicity of the lehenga, I didn't need more choices. And I decided to design the blouse myself which the tailor thought of damaging a bit with the sleeves. But overall it looks good and I liked it.

I somehow forgot to get the twirl shot in this lehenga. Next time!


  1. Beautiful outfit and Happy Diwali :)


  2. The photos are filled with colours just like the night of Diwali filled with lights.
    You look very pretty and the twirl would only add to the charm..
    Smiles and colours!

Polka Dots Please

I love how Polka Dots are so versatile. You don't need to wait for a season to wear them or in fact wait for any occasion. I've got enough of my polka dots outfits and I love all of them. Especially this blazer.. I was bit skeptical when I bought this if it looks too formal and works well only as formals. But let me tell you. This will go with anything and everything.. for a work meeting with formal trousers and shirts, at the same time you can wear for a family dinner or carry it as a warmer for a cocktail party when you feel chills with your drinks. Or for a girls casual day-out wearing with a simple jeans and t-shirt like this one. 
Here, I styled it with my favourite jeans over a tube top, accessorised with a simple choker and an aqua shade finger ring (not well captured but another favourite one). Ended with a pony tail and black heels which I think gave a classy look, no? What do you think? Let me know how it works for you.

Summer Dream

Starting with some "long time no see" ranting.. 😀 I can't believe that its been such a long time I opened the blog to write a post. The last time I was here, I wrote a long travel post with some nice pictures and I lost the whole thing for the second time when I was editing the format. I got fed up and procrastinated it forever. 
Then this post was supposed to go in summer around August. But I realised that managing a blog with a full-time job (which you love the most), travelling, other hobbies and long to-do lists of personal errands is not an easy task after all. And falling sick in-between all this makes it even more worse. The blog totally had to take a back seat.
Coming to the weather part, this year has been a disaster. Every one of us felt like we got cheated by Stavanger. Or the Sun God decided not to visit us. Or the Earth didn't tilt well enough for Norway to get some Sun. Whatever! Would you believe if I say that this whole year gave us the sunny days th…

What is L.O.V.E.?

The four lettered happiest, hurtful, mysterious (and what not!) word causing happiness, pain and loads of confusion in lives of people. While I started to write something about it on this "so called" special day, nothing popped up in my mind. Like nothing. Nada. 
I questioned myself - Can we really say/write about love? Can we really define love? Isn't Love a feeling to experience and an expression to let someone know about your feeling? There are SO many kinds of love that words alone can never do it justice. Probably that is the reason they simplified it to the phrase 'I Love You'.
Love towards our parents, siblings, husband/wife, kids, family, friends, pets, acquaintances, and even to a stranger, we show our love and respect. Each one of us has our own feeling, experience, definition and obviously our own ways of expressing it.
Love is like a sneeze, I feel.. you know.. the restlessness before and the relaxation after. Its exactly the same. And you cannot explain…
