The Festive season is here! This time of year is full of festivities with Nivratri, Karva Chauth, and Diwali (Indian New Year) all within a few weeks of each other. With so many celebrations, it’s a great opportunity to invest in new Desi wear. Normally, I’m all for re-wearing South Asian fashion by adding a new twist. However in our family, we have a tradition of buying new clothes for Diwali! From Diwali cards and parties to distributing sweets, there are so many opportunities to get dressed up. For the last few months, you have been asking me to feature South Asian fashion on the blog. I teamed up with Wardrobe On Web to share with you my Diwali Party Style all week long. Diwali is a time to give thanks and bless the New Year. This Diwali, I’m so thankful to celebrate with you. As a newlywed, this Diwali is even more special and I wanted to thank you for all the love and support you’ve shown me over the last year. From wedding planning to moving to SF and then Singapore, your messages asking how I’m doing, if I need any help, and words of encouragement got me through the tough times and motivated me to keep following my dreams. Now it’s my time to share a Diwali Treat!

#DesignerSpotlight – Hookum Design Studio & Giveaway!

Hookum Design Studio and Social and Style Indian Jewelry 100

I have always loved jewelry, especially Indian designs. While styling a look, I try to add a touch of Indian influence to make the outfit my own. From jhumkas to bangles,  I love adding traditional designs to western outfits. When I saw Hookum Design Studio‘s jewelry on Instagram, I was drawn to their design aesthetic. Hookum Design Studio, a Vancouver based company, caters to women who are seeking timeless South Asian inspired jewelry that can be worn with Indian and western clothing. As you know, this month I focused on fashion and I am excited to collaborate with Hookum Design Studio! After seeing this white gown (on sale at H&M), I wanted to compliment the silhouette while keeping the look graceful and elegant. I decided to pair the dress with Hookum Design Studio’s pearl influenced jewelry set to create a whimsical look with a classic feel. The fine quality, yet affordable jewelry created a modern fairytale and I felt like I was in a wonderland filled with possibilities. Stay tuned for part 2 of our collaboration to add Indian influences to every day looks from the office to an evening out. And click below to find out how you can win your very own Hookum Design Studio earnings!

#Giveaway – Start your morning with Restore Chai Masala

10

The morning is my favorite time of day. Waking up, I love thinking about all the possibilities the day has in store. With the excitement of a new day, I know I have to take time and center myself. To bring calm and peace to the day, I start my morning with a cup of chai. Chai is like meditation to me. I try to stay in the present moment as I boil the water, add milk, sprinkle in chai masala, and drop in the tea. As I sip on my steaming cup of tea, I reflect about how I feel and try to release any tension from the day before or the day ahead. This morning ritual of restoration and calmness helps me prepare for the highs and lows that the day brings.
