If you follow me on Instagram and Instastories, you may have noticed a few changes in my life lately that have a lot to do with fashion! At the start of my third trimester, I joined Covetella – Singapore’s #1 Fashion Rental Destination. As you know, I typically don’t talk much about my professional life on the blog, but so many of you have been asking about my new job! So I thought I would share a little more about my new role and how it all happened!

A Better Florist – Every reason is the perfect reason for flowers.

// Dress c/o Covetella // Flowers c/o A Better Florist //

Every reason is the perfect reason for flowers. Flowers hold a special place in my heart. My mom loves flowers and spends hours in her garden tending to her beautiful blooms. My Grandfather, who worked in Ludhiana’s Agricultural University, grew up tending to our family’s farm and flower fields. My Grandpa instilled the importance of agriculture to his three daughters by teaching them about botany, flower arrangement, and gardening. My mom always feels close to her father when she is around flowers. Now that I am away from home, I too feel my mother’s presence around flowers. For me, fresh flowers light up a room and make our home feel cozy, especially when I miss my family and friends back in the US. When I moved to Singapore, I searched for places to buy flowers both affordably and easily. Thankfully, I found A Better Florist!

Expat Living Singapore – June 2017 Feature!

Exciting news, my first print magazine feature in Singapore is out! Thank you Expat Living SG for including me in your June issue.  When I first found out we were moving to Singapore, I decided to embrace the move wholeheartedly. While I missed my family and friends like crazy, I wanted to make the best of this new adventure. By God’s grace, we found out I was expecting on Christmas Day 2016. We were so thankful learn about the news. As the weeks progressed, I had a tough first trimester with nausea and tiredness. On top of that, I was interviewing for jobs and trying to settle into our new home.  Dealing with so much change, a new country, while trying to move my career forward and make new friends was one of the toughest points in my life.

Style File: Volume 1.2

Thank you all for your suggestions on what to eat, see, and do in Paris. The Babymoon was a much needed break and so relaxing. I really appreciate your feedback on my last post. Sometimes it’s hard to be vulnerable, but I find it so important to be honest and authentic. I’ll be sharing more in my next post but for a while, I wanted to stop blogging – mainly because of the time and effort it takes to keep up with social media. Honestly, I got disheartened with how many people buy likes, followers, and comment bots on platforms such as Instagram. Thankfully, I’m learning to focus on myself and what I can contribute rather than what other  people are doing. I truly believe that being an influencer is a part of my destiny and I am focusing on how I can best use the gifts, talents, and abilities God has given me to make an impact. With that comes showing sides of myself that are not perfect, and often I don’t want to admit to myself. While for some, perfect pictures and a perfect life is their goal, it’s definitely not mine. Stay tuned for more honest posting coming soon – along with the fun stuff like fashion and travel. Today, I’m excited to share my weekly round up of my favorites this week!

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!
