When deciding on where to go for our baby moon, Bali was the perfect choice. We loved the Island’s rich culture, sightseeing, and the relaxing beaches. From the beautiful Temples to the natural beauty, we truly enjoyed our time in Bali. I even squeezed in a fun DIY baby announcement shoot on the beach! I’ve put together a few tips on planning a baby moon. Also – I’m also super excited that we are doing a baby moon part 2 in Paris starting Sunday for 10 days! I would love any suggestions and tips on traveling around Paris and day trips you recommend. Can’t wait to share our trip to France on Insta stories and the blog soon!

How to pick Indian Jewelry that you can actually wear again!

If you followed this blog for a while, you know I love Indian fashion and accessories! Sometimes I think back to when I was a child who refused to wear her Indian clothes in public. I remember one time when I was 10 and my mom wanted to go grocery shopping after a morning puja at our Temple. I refused to enter the store in my salwar kameez. My mom, being the strong mom that she is, would not let me say in the car alone. I finally agreed but only after I put on a jacket – in 90 degree heat! Since then, I’ve come a long way in accepting and embracing my Indian culture. It wasn’t easy but finding a South Asian American community in college that I could connect with helped. Now I love everything Indian from movies to fashion. When I first started blogging, I was into to the latest trends in South Asian fashion and designer wear. While I still am interested in trends and designer wear, I prefer outfits and accessories that will last more than a season. That is why I love finding jewelry that is classic yet contemporary. When I met Sangeeta, founder of Sangeeta’s Bazaar on Instagram, I loved her designs. I  teamed up with Sangeeta to put together our tips on how to pick Indian jewelry that you can actually wear again!

Style File: Volume 1

Now that I’m in my 23rd week, I am feeling great. I hear I’m in the honeymoon period of pregnancy and it definitely feels like it! I feel healthy and strong and that’s what matters most. As you know from previous posts, I had a great transition to Singapore and felt truly welcomed by all the people I met. Over the last few months, I was way less social in person and on social media. I realized what I missed most was connecting to people. I am such a social and talkative person by nature and I love sharing what motivates and inspires me. I’m excited to start a new series on the blog where I talk about my favorite finds from fitness to fashion!

Hi…I’m Back!

I want to start this post by saying I’m back and I missed you! Sometimes, you need to take a break from blogging and focus on what matters most in your life. More on that in upcoming posts… While I never expected the break to be this long, I am thankful that I took time to reflect, mature, and be thankful for what I have in life. As you may remember from previous posts, the move to Singapore went smoothly and I am proud of myself for adapting to my new home so quickly. Soon after the New Year, I went back to the US to meet my new baby niece. It was then that I realized I needed to pause and be more present in my life. Blogging had started to become a main priority rather than a creative outlet that I loved. Thank you for all your messages and patience during this time.  So many of you wrote to me checking to see if I was ok and that meant so much. Now that I feel rested, I am full of ideas to write about! While I was away, I learned I loved fuss-free healthy cooking, read a ton of books (I can’t wait to share with you), and most important – I want to get back to writing about topics that inspire readers. Relaunching the #PowerWomen series is something I am excited about, along with lots of travel posts (next up our trip to Bali)!
