Past, Present, Future
When I joined the Charity Team of our local International Women's Club, one of the members had mentioned helping teach English to some of the foreigners. I immediately raised my hand and said I would be happy to help but that I do travel a good amount. Not to worry, that's so common in this club (and I'm slowly figuring this out), so they're always happy to have volunteers and realize it might be for a limited time or with gaps between.

Chanderi
Fabric Installation #3. I actually had no idea what chanderi was then I first moved here. And the funny thing is, I already had multiple chanderi pieces from all of my previous visits throughout the years.

Recycle Update!
I did a post about recycling old outfits and using blouse pieces and such to make new tops. You can read all about it here. Well, I had mentioned my next project was to take a dupatta with pom poms and turn it into a cover-up. I said I'd report back once it was complete...

Okay, well it didn't exactly go that way, but we all know I have a little flare for the dramatic. I had my seasonal photo shoot the other day, and it's always a mixed emotion kinda day. It's super exciting seeing my pieces displayed on a mannequin, lights shining on them and everything finally coming to life. It's also super stressful because we're on a budget and schedule, and I am just a worrier in general.

I think I've mentioned the fact that I live in Kolkata, but I don't think I've said much more than that. I had visited here in the 4th grade to attend the celebration of a very important Jain fast for my aunt (my mom's older sister). We stayed for about a month, and when summer vacation was up, I didn't really look back. Never thought in a million years that I'd end up meeting the love of my life and find out that he was from Kolkata of all pl

Mul

You're probably wondering...mul? Did she mean to type 'mud' or 'mut' but those don't really make sense either? Yup, I meant to type mul. It's another type of fabric. I thought after my Taffa What? post, it'd be a good idea to every once in a while write about other fabrics, too. I love mul (or some refer to it as mul mul as well). It is the best summer material - it's light, usually comes in fun prints/colors and is sooo breathable. It

More Complaints
Sorry, I'm in a complaining kinda mood right now - I guess I'm in a little bit of a rut. I promise I'll get out of it soon. I think the heat is getting to me, and I think I need to step on a plane destination Atlanta right about now... Until then, I'll vent some more :)

Itch, Scratch
You know, even though it's been 5 years, I don't think I'll ever get used to the mosquitoes. My alarm went off this morning, and since Jai is traveling, I thought why not take advantage of the snooze button once? It was such sweet sleep, and I just didn't feel like getting out of bed. All of a sudden, I felt an itch at my left temple, so I scratched and didn't really anything. Then, there was another at my neck on the same side. Once again

Bling.
I love jewelry and all things accessories really. You might have the cutest outfit, but I personally feel you could always use that little sparkle or color to make it pop. To step it up just that extra bit. With that being said, I'm also a little lazy and many times in a hurry as I'm leaving home. My plans are different every single day, and I have to prepare/dress for multiple locations and activities. On a daily basis, I like pieces th

The last few days have been a little crazy. We live in a really old home (it's been in the family for 4 generations), so there's always something going wrong with it. The latest problem has been the electric lines and wiring of the entire place. Because of this, internet has been difficult (and the general service of our local provider has been poor, too). My server host has been undergoing maintenance as well, so I haven't been able to post
