Is it the freedom from multiple layers of clothing, the infusion of color everywhere, picnics in the park, the possibilities of long weekend getaways or lovers canoodling on park benches (le sigh)? For me, arrival of summer is the perfect blend of all of the above. Growing up in India and living in a constant baking summer, it took me a while to come back around to the

The scorching New York summer is finally here and will shortly make room for a very rainy July. It’s been nice to have an excuse to stay indoors and work on setting up my new apartment (I am so excited with the progress and cannot wait to show you pictures once it’s complete). Maxi’s are great – they look chic and yet are airy and easy to

Sheer Magic – Lingerie as outerwear

I decided to try it myself and I’m pretty sure I still don’t have the courage to wear it out in public..but it made for some beautiful photography around the apartment. The thing I learnt is that the magic lies in layering.

I'm one of those people who is always in a frenzied New York state of mind - going a million miles a minute, often leaving very little time for reflection. Travelling has become the breather I crave for, when city life becomes too chaotic. Goan life is that perfect blend of

The pristine white marble is hard to miss as you drive by the area. What few people know and I was really surprised to discover was that the building holds one of the only two surviving manuscripts of Divine Comedy written by Dante. (Maybe in a cosmic joke it seems apropos that this building is considered one of the most haunted places in the city). So given the information above, it should

Divine Providence

I am so fortunate for having been able to see very different parts of America this year. One of the big things being the changing of the foliage in Providence, Rhode Island. I stayed at an idyllic boutique hotel called The Dean where attention to detail lies at the foundation of everything.  From the restaurant to the karaoke bar, your trip here will be well worth it.

The lure of picturesque town houses and warm italian brews is hard to resist.
