coming soon…

After disappearing for over a month, I am shamelessly back at writing and without getting into the details of what kept me away … let me just update you guys on what’s coming up.

Actually, a lot of exciting posts areĀ  in the oven and, slowly and gradually, I will bring them to you as I try to find the quiet and peace to do so. As many of you might know, I have a 2.5 year old daughter who is as full of life as any other kid her age should be … and then some :) Therefore, jotting down my thoughts on a more regular manner is a challenge to say the least.

I am looking forward to a more structured blogging schedule in months to come once I finally move to our new house in February. YES! can not wait. Which reminds me that I will also be sharing my decor inspirations and ideas for the new house as I collect them. I am always researching, even when I am not blogging, and it is so hard not to share all the awesome stuff on my blog. However, in the last months, for the sake of my own sanity, I have resisted :)

Here are a few upcoming posts I am super excited about:

- A “Live In” column where I will share my take on how to recreate decor of famous movies: Hollywood & Bollywood!

- Fun and simple DIY craft ideas!

- “Word of Mouth” – a mini interview series about design, fashion & lifestyle choices “real” everyday people make and why!

Also, I promise to add more of my personal photography whenever possible… however, I have to admit, I am a sucker for photography – be it fashion, lifestyle or abstract – and the avid admirer in me will always urge me to share other photographers’ works; my way of paying homage to them :)

stay tuned, my friends.

my dream blogger's heaven :) wouldn't mind being here right now!

Launching…

“It took 3 days!

That’s what Raheel Gauba wrote as a test post while launching this blog earlier today. It is kind of true you know. It did take us just three days from the time I informed Raheel of my decision to enhance the web of this wide, wide world with my own intricacies and sometimes creepy thoughts, to today – the launch day!

However, making the decision to do so took a lot more days. Lots more. Three years actually. But that’s just how things happen for me. Ever heard of analysis paralysis? Well, now you have. I am, what one would call, a professional-grade analytical machine (P.A.M., for all you acronym lovers out there). The more insignificant the object or idea, the harder and longer I analyze. For me, the fun really is in the journey… as much as at the destination. So much so, that I hardly get to the destination on time, if I get there at all. BUT, I love the journey.

Also, I am not sure if my Heart and Brain are on good terms with each other. Communication, as in most earthly relationships, seems to be the issue. And between you and me, I think they are a little jealous of each others’ powers. For instance, both have been arguing over who gets the credit for my decision to blog. What will I do, you ask? Well, what do you think? I’ll analyze it of course!

Having a blog of my own always seemed so… natural, like evolution. And just like evolution, the idea needed to go through many changes before it could take it’s final shape. It took me years to stop procrastinating and waiting for that 11th Commandment to reveal itself with instructions like…

“Six days shalt thou Blog, and do no other work”

or some similar Godly message. These years, however, will always remain a beautiful memory of my journey.

I am here now. Everything is in place. Including my 2 year old, who is in bed. (holy crap, did I just say “my 2 year old”? that sounded so “mommy” like! but that’s another topic for another day).

Ready to write, ready to evolve. I am!
