She tagged me…

It was Arch who really inspired me on creating a Blog of my own. Sorry Arch, I know I’m really late but here’s what I have 7 things about myself. They are the simplest ones but play a major role in keeping me on.......

Me – Home - Decor
My home is truly a reflection of whom I am. I just wait for the weekend afternoons when I really find time arranging n rearranging my art n furniture.
I love to mix the Ethnic Indian and oriental styles of art, anything that would add
To the beauty of the place we live. This gives me the ultimate satisfaction for how I
Feel for myself.

Kitchen – Cooking
This is also one of my cherished activates. I love to cook food for myself, well for my family too. It’s definitely a stress reliever. Cooking helps me relieve stress and eating the food I cooked feeds the soul within.

Candles – Floating Flowers.
Another thing that keeps me going is the warm light from candles. I have placed candles just everywhere at home. It emits that beautiful warm, cosy light that can keep you so relaxed. Well, a dash of floating flowers will all set the mood right.

Ethnic Indian:
Ethnics, I could do nothing without them. I’m short of words to describe how it feels to say what I feel for all the earthy Ethnic Indian things. From Clothes, accessories to artifacts, they play a major part of me. I adore all the Kalamkari, Mangalgiri, Gadwal, pochampalli fabrics & more. They drive me Crazy.

Food:
I love to eat. Food, Eat what you like is the ongoing Mantra. From the simplest, humble daily meal to Indian Snack Chats, Banquets I just quote “Eat and Eat” – It’s the ultimate satisfaction the best gift to pamper oneself.

Coffee Shops:
The routine for this Couple (Me & my better half). The local Coffee shop is
The most commonly visited place, just for a cup of Tea and ample Chit Chat time.

Recent Photographer:
Just recently I realized that photography was an unseen passion within me. Well, I had finally decided that I would nurture this ongoing learning Process.
