Best of the best | Always Stay Inspired

Don’t you agree that WE ARE the books we read, the movies we watch, the videos we save for ‘watch later’ on YouTube and of course, the kind of people we surround ourselves with? Why this post? Well, time on my plate and some wonderful help at my beck and call has allowed me to focus on…

Musings of a bride-to-be

If you’ve been following me on social media, you know I’ve FINALLY found my soul-mate. Phew! That was one heck of a hunt, I must say. Anyway, I’ve always looked at other brides and pondered what’s going on in their heads (in a very non-stalkerish way, I promise) and now that I am going to…

Gratitude

“When you look for the good stuff and acknowledge it, more good stuff shows up. “ WHY GRATITUDE? Up until last year, I understood (quite clearly) the importance of gratitude but never really envisioned the magnitude of impact it can have on our lives. We are all living in a rut constantly chasing things in…

Mirchi and Mime | The Maven Recommendation 

It’s surprising how we don’t like to censor ourselves so that our near and dear ones KNOW how we feel and what we feel. However, there are some extremely special individuals who’ve been put in a situation where they are made to believe that ‘little said is easily mended’. This blog post is dedicated those…

Sakleshpur during Monsoons – A tribute to your mind, heart and soul

For the folks who know me (very) privately, know that ‘overdone’, ‘overhyped’ and ‘common’ places/things repel me quite instantaneously. Which is why, every time I look out for a place to wander and explore, I ensure that the place is relatively untapped and almost always underrated 😊. That; gives me an opportunity to talk to you…

Nasi and Mee – The Maven Recommendation

I often go around saying that I was probably Chinese in my previous birth as a result of my vehement affinity towards Chinese food (which is is quite unbelievable). That being said, I feel not all restaurants can do justice to this cuisine as it can be a tough one to crack. How to make…

Dubai- A Food Connoisseur’s Paradise

Dubai, a city that pretty much ‘has it all’ , is also referred to as ‘Vegas on Steroids’. For me, until a few visits ago, it used to all about chilling with the fam-bam, till I discovered a plethora of restaurants & cuisines this city had to offer. 😍 What I absolutely adore about the…

Beauty of ‘homestays’- The Maven Recommendation

Holiday & travel is no longer ‘luxury’ but a ‘need of the hour’. We all crave for a (well deserved 😉) break from the daily humdrum to recuperate and tune back into the best version of ourselves. About two years ago, I experienced another dimension of holiday & travel – the beautifully welcoming ‘homestays’. Chikmagalur,…

Train Yourself

If you know me, you know really well how MUCH I love sharing small vignettes of my musings with you. This post combines a variety of things that struck a chord with me and shaped me into the person I am today. Hope you enjoy reading it as much I enjoyed writing it. Train your…

Bombay Brasserie- The Maven Recommendation

Bangalore is b-b-buzzing with quirky restaurants that are working a deal to please my fellow Bangaloreans (including myself). And I’d take this opportunity to say it out loud that we are more than spoilt for choice. The food industry has picked up astronomically in the past 4 years and is thhrrivinggg. This week, I will…
