January 7, 2017
best-vegan-burgers-in-berlin3

Perfectly crisp on the outside with just enough juice on the inside, lots of sauce dripping out, some fries freshly out of the pan on the side; that’s my definition of perfect burger date. One that you can smooch the very first time. I am sorry for my excited tone but I can’t help it when the subject is- my favourite veggie/vegan burgers in town. So, here you go… Continue Reading…

Dreamy in Palma de Mallorca

September 11, 2016
Berlin blogger_mallorca

Right now I feel exactly how you would feel after an amazing vacation near the sea. Extremely happy about how well it went and extremely sad that now I am back to the realities of the world- doing dirty ten days’ laundry, figuring out groceries, experiencing Monday blues and having no nature around to wake up to. But you know what I miss the most after any holiday? Continue Reading…

11:45 am- I was in crazy amount of hurry to rush to my yoga class, scheduled at 12:15 every Sunday

But just when I was about to leave, my phone pinged. I checked thinking it will be a quick one. It was someone very close to me asking my whereabouts and where have I been hiding. Continue Reading…

I love palm trees and their tropical vibe. So it was very natural for me to fall for the idea of utilising (otherwise wasted) palm tree leaves for making pretty cool sandals. This post introduces Jack O’Neill, who conceptualised the idea in order to do his bit towards protecting the environment. Continue Reading…

I absolutely love May in Germany; it’s full of long weekends. On one such weekend that gave us four days in a row, we decided to drive to the south of Germany along the ‘Romantic Road’ till Neuschwanstein castle. Having seen enough of Pinterest pins about it, I already had a head full of fairy-tale like road trip imaginations.  Continue Reading…

Commandments of Chic

April 17, 2016
Notes of Chic

Sorry guys but ‘chic’ is what money cannot buy any of us. You either have it or you don’t. Saying that, there is absolutely nothing in the world we can’t learn. I learn a little everyday; sometimes from my own mistakes and a lot of times by those made by others. Talking chic, it is often trivialised as just clothes and make-up and that’s the myth we will break today.  Continue Reading…

Indian Womanhood In Your Face

Money, Kitty Parties & Clothes Is All A Bahu Knows

Her series on Indian women breaks all stereotypes on womanhood in a quirky way and that’s why this unusual post made to my inspiration board. Not only are the paintings worthy of kicking conventional barriers, they look visually beautiful. Continue Reading…

If I had to spend my last bits of wealth on something and the choice was a luxury closet and a beautiful home then I would definitely choose later. You can feel luxurious sitting in your slip dress if the surroundings are exquisite and as per your taste but the other way round is not exactly possible; not atleast with me. Continue Reading…

A close friend of mine who follows trends closely recently mentioned how she has not been able to wear flared jeans because her current knee pain does not allow her to wear heels. It baffles me how trend reports in magazines restrict people in deciding their own trends based on their personal convenience.   Continue Reading…

I feel extremely relieved this week after my Facebook page’s name has also been changed to match the new blog name. I had to talk to Facebook reps ten times back and forth to execute something that seemed to easy. But it ended well so I am super happy.

To celebrate this, I wanna share this healthy, quick and yum recipe that I tried last weekend after being inspired from a book that I have on vegetarian recipes called 30-Minute Vegetarian by Rose Elliot. It combines the nutrition of bulgur wheat and tang of orange and makes for a perfect Sunday lunch.  Continue Reading…

This weekend was mostly about lounging at home; all thanks to the consistent stubborn rain. But this gave me a chance to watch movies, read, be lazy with my love, cook some amazing meals and most importantly have my favourite hot chocolate; while also sharing the recipe with you guys.

When I say it is the best hot chocolate in the world then I mean it! Perfectly sweet, tinge of salty and spicy, this one will make you crave for more. Continue Reading…

Hello SOS the Studio

berlin fashion blog_black look39_1024

There are girls who walk around with sexy cross-body satchels, some with backpacks and then there are those who need to carry their world with them. I am definitely the last at most times. Always on a look out for a big everyday bag that can accommodate my yoga gear, energy food, a bag of chips, rose pepper chocolate, allergy meds, thermal facial water, dry shampoo and ugh the list is endless. Besides, the bag should look chic too.

I was lucky to get one from a new Scandinavian brand that opened last September in Berlin, SOS the Studio. Continue Reading…

Somerset Meadow from Crabtree & Evelyn

Crabtree & Evelyn

The first time I smelled a green tea fragrance was the very popular Green Tea collection from Elizabeth Arden years back and it definitely appealed to my olfactory senses. And then I kept trying some now and then. But I am writing tonight quickly before snuggling into bed about my one of the best green fragrances I used so far, ‘Somerset Meadow‘ from Crabetree & Evelyn. Continue Reading…

Little Red Dress

Red dress_notes of chic

If you did not already read my Under The Tuscan Sun post then this post might seem meaningless because for me fashion embraces within its fold every detail of your life- where and how you travel, what you eat, how you greet and how you love. Since these pictures were taken during my town hopping in Tuscany, they will make a lot more sense in the context of that. Or else its just a red dress post. The pictures are taken by my very loving husband Rohan. I would not say much here and let the pictures be my story; while the red fiercely shouts out love, passion, compassion, sexy, powerful, and intensive.  Continue Reading…

Julian Zigerli is one designer from Berlin who instills a fresh dose of fun and quirk in German fashion scene. He experiments, challenges and most importantly plays as he creates his designs. Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin Spring/Summer 2016 was my first chance of witnessing his guerrilla show that took place in an unusually interesting location,a public park. The models clad in quirky clothes, covered in grass carried their own music via small wireless speakers in one hand. The whole vibe was kinda cool complementing the clothes. You can actually visit his website and shop online. Something I personally love are his backpacks.  Continue Reading…

Tuscany travel blog

My title is taken from the movie ‘Under the Tuscan Sun’ because it embodies the exact emotion that I have; while leaving much to one’s imagination.

Tuscany is on most traveler’s bucket list and the reasons are simple- A picturesque landscape set in between some of the best vineyards and olive farms of the world, with food dipped in aromatic cheeses and home to some big fashion houses.  Continue Reading…

When I started writing a post on my recent Tuscany trip, I realised that it was too much information to be conveyed through a single post so decided to break it up.
