But so much has happened since then that has taken precedence over the blog that I took a step back from doing what I love so much. Please know that I’ve missed being able to speak and connect with all of you. I felt like I was scraping the bottom for a while but it feels so good to be coming back up for air –

Moving to New York early on, I knew it was that safe space for me to explore who I was. But over time, the weight of everyday life caught on and I needed to find a place that was an escape from my escape. Funny how that plays out?! It isn’t just the externalities of life that were

With education, comes awareness. And with the basic necessities of life addressed and put on the back burner, India is bursting with a brand conscious consumer. High street brands like Gap, H&M, Zara, Forever 21 and Ikea amongst others have long seen the opportunity this poses and worked hard to get

[/fusion_text][fusion_text]As I get older, it seems I say this more and more – time seems to be running by like water. The start of 2016 is a big year for me. It is the year I’m going to turn thirty. One of the fringe benefits of this year is that it gives me time to contemplate and still act on anything I want to have ready for the next decade of my life.

As I grow older, I consciously shop for classics rather than buying just fashion.
