If there’s one good thing that I could do today, I choose it to be this post! Cat-eyeliner, catwalk, catsuits, cat-eye sunglasses — fashion’s association with cats isn’t new. In fact, Karl Lagerfeld, arguably the most influential man in Fashion, has his Choupette become an instagram star. But this post is actually my way of introducing Nora, my beautiful and playful, 3-month old baby (pictured above). Yes, I am on my way to becoming the proud crazy cat lady. The idea cropped up when I was thinking of a way to photograph her with me. That post will come, someday, hopefully soon. But the train of thought led to me research fashion bloggers who own cats. And I am delighted with what popped up. Continue reading
“Art, freedom, and creativity will change society faster than politics”

To take it further, I got to thinking how the images we curate on pinterest can reflect our thoughts and subconscious patterns as well. Continue reading
A colorful shoreline of red rocks, green seaweed covered stones and black sand; home to one of the most vivid sunsets of my life, and with a hazy air of sea mist — Varkala is a quaint hippie destination 40 km north of Trivandrum, still unheard of by many.
“You know, one of the tragedies of real life is that there is no background music”
– Edna Annie Proulx
Proulx’s quote surely strikes a chord, but in my real life, I make up for the lack of background music with a really versatile playlist in my phone and a spectacular pair of earphones to go with it.
