Being someone who slogs six days a week, & doing the same monotonous work, I consider Sunday as a ‘self love day’! From waking up with a relaxed mind & a smile on my face to spending ample time with my family. I don’t even mind getting up earlier than the usual week days for the blog shoots because that is something that I enjoy and love to do.
Once I am done with getting clicked, I start working on the writing part, but not without a mug of coffee. Being a coffee addict that I am, I keep on adding unique & vibrant coffee mugs to my collection.
The latest addition to my coffee mugs family is this beautifully crafted piece from India Circus (Shop here).
If you all know me well, you must be aware of the fact that how much I love purchasing jewellery, and not just purchasing I also make sure they are beautifully stored. So when recently my mum gifted me this enchanting Swan Print Box to store my everyday earrings, I was left ecstatic.
Considering the sun’s harsh rays are at a peak these days, I do not step out of my home without wearing my sunglasses. Kept safe & absolutely secured from scratches or cracks in this sleek eye wear case, that I recently switched to because of its rich color and quirky design unlike the boring cases that we get with the sunnies!
If India, the land of joy is the spectacular mix of people, culture, and traditions, then it’s interiors and décor is the feast for the senses.

We may not be able to judge a book by its outer cover, but we definitely can visualize a beautiful home when their Doors look like these.

The doors here not just have one elementary look but they have to come with their perks of detailed oasis and diagrams!
