Recycle!
You're probably thinking, 'What? Is she going to tell us to recycle? Interesting...' Well, something like that. I feel like it took me forever and a day to figure this out but you can do so much with sari blouse pieces dupattas or almost any scraps which are just laying around. And why let them go to waste?

My trip to the States is fast approaching (ahem, even thought I haven't really booked my tickets yet, but I know I'm going at some point this summer, so we're ALL good).

25 Things About Me!
Hello! And welcome! I know many of you are new here, and some of you have been past followers. I didn't want to do the same old intro post I did 5 (ah!) years ago (when I first moved to India and started my blog American Sugar, Indian Chai) or anything like what I just wrote over at My Inner Shakti (I'll be guest posting over there!). There's more than enough of 'my story' going around (even a bit here on my website itself in the About sectio
