Here Comes The Festival Season! Festival of Colorful Fashion

India screams festival season year round, every season is festival season. Im always fascinated by the colors, the traditions behind the costumes, the rituals. India offers me so much all at once, its something perplexing but yet so intriguing, invigorating, creative and inspiring. I keep wanting more. I love that there are temples festivals in conjunction with the Church festival down the street, Both festivals run together in harmony bringing out people from all age groups.

Festival season is not quite the same in India as in the other parts of the world. When someone speaks of a festival here, it usually a temple or a church festival , with religious processions blocking the street mid-day, families out in their Sunday best, ready to gather all the blessings they can on the sacred day! We have the music festivals too with the same vibes you feel around the world.

I have a friend who always makes fun of me when I head back to India. When I’m in the US, I tend to wear a lot of grey and black and the moment I land in the motherland, my colors turn to bright oranges, reds and blues. It’s like I literally turn a switch with a color explosive. I love it. Our festival inspired bags and kaftans are very much a glimpse into my India. The vintage fabrics, the cool summer clothes. Perfect summer!!

WHAT YOU SEEK IS SEEKING YOU: HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY

The year of the rooster. I cant tell you how promising it feels to walk into 2017 after a year of incredible trials. Perhaps I shouldn't be getting into it on my work front but my work and my life seem to be this intertwined mix and I prefer to keep it that way to ensure I speak truth through my work.

Gift a Gypsy tote to bring a smile this valentine

 The universal shift in thinking and conscious thought broke me in more ways than one. What an immense year of pain and the evolution to rebirth. There have been many life altering experiences if I look back but up until this opportunity to break open in all my humanity, I did not allow myself the opportunity to pause and take ownership of the fact that through all of it , I myself was a part of the creation. I have failed in the way many of us fail: to truly see and accept the beauty and gifts we all have within. yes, I speak of relationships

February is always an interesting month in what we do. Common sense would tell me to make a push to promote some of our beautiful pieces for valentines day but over the years that's been eating at me. declaration of true love towards someone should be a natural part of your everyday and I hope it is for you. Its  always nice to receive something lovely from your significant other but I wish for you love in its truest form, gifts or no gifts.

Bohemian Jewelry Gifts for Valentine's Day


Sometimes things change in the blink of an eye, and this may well be one of those times. This is a time to allow yourself to open to love and make it your mission to find the greatest possible sense of balance.

We don’t often discuss balance in love, yet most relationships end because of this factor. It’s easy to lose sight of our needs when we begin a relationship with someone. We dismiss our need for freedom, quiet, and even sex; we overlook practical aspects like communication or home rituals. And then one day we wake up and realize we aren’t where we want to be.

If we choose to look within at this time , our souls will naturally be drawn to those relationships where balance flows as freely as love. Don't allow yourself  time for relationships that leaves you feeling as mentally exhausted as we do when we leave work.

Things may not make sense; you may want to hit the brakes, put the blinders back on or even bury our heads in the sand—and you just may make that choice. But it won’t be for long. You are going to feel more action-packed than gun shy, more interested in truth than hiding or avoiding.

There is a journey ahead of it. This is a time for  wandering, pulled by the stars. The love we’re seeking is already breathing and alive; it’s here.

This time, we will be able to see the bigger picture—and with it, the balance we need in our relationships.

Life is too short for anything but the extraordinary.

Look within, your have the answers.
