Outfit of the day: Pink and White

"Let's all Spread the Love..."

Hi my beautiful Divas!!! 
Can you believe it is literally another 15 days before we enter 2015!?! I'm sure we all are looking forward to it! Hope world will be a much better place to live in; and no more terrorism, specially in school and killing children and innocent people.

 In January, we are gonna celebrate our 9th wedding anniversary! Time truly flies! 
So, here is another outfit of the day post! Very casual: skinny white jeans with pink oversized sweater and white jacket and grey boot. Absolutely no makeup, only lipstick! Totally obsessed with this color right now! For more Pink outfit posts, Click here and here.

BTW, Have you noticed the background? Those are the seven hills. Lynchburg is called the "City of Seven Hills". United States College Hill, Garland Hill, Daniel's Hill, Federal Hill, Diamond Hill, White Rock Hill, and Franklin Hill were the original "Seven Hills" of the City of Lynchburg.

How to Decorate A Sunroom for Christmas

Christmas Decoration 2013


December has always been very exciting month in my life! Even when I was in India, I used to look forward to those few coldest days of the year during Christmas and New Year time to go out for a picnic or two with friends and family. And, how should I forget about the cake rituals on Christmas day? In Kolkata, all the families used to cut a cake and celebrate Jesus's birthday on 25th December. Sometimes, I remember, we baked the fruit-cake at home for the occasion. Extended families would  come to visit us or we would go to visit them. In one line, we always had gala-time in December.

In USA, December is the holiday season, festive season, joyous season. Philadelphia, New-York City and all other big cities in USA get a luminous makeover around this time. You would see lights and decorations and celebrations everywhere. Last year after moving to Lynchburg, I started decorating my Christmas tree for the first time. While uploading 'the christmas village' picture yesterday on thedocndiva facebook page , I realized I never actually shared my decoration from last year with you. Well actually shared few here. Therefore, enjoy...

How to style a simple Red-White Jamdani Saree: Saree as Outfit of the Day

festive fashion 2...


Hi Beauties!
Subha Bijoya!!!
and
Happy Dusherra!!!

Sigh! we have to wait another year for all the fun. I wanted to go to India so badly for Durga-Pooja this year, but tough luck. What is Durga-Pooja? I have said everything about Durga-Pooja here. Anyway, this is no time for whining. We went to a friend's place at New Jersey and had lots of fun. Of course, we attended a pooja there. Auripra enjoyed a lot, she was dancing with Dhak (Drum). It was actually hard to run after her in saree; the hardest part was managing her when she was feeling tired and getting cranky and was crying.
All the moms out there know, in a situation like above, it is just impossible to pose for an OOTD photo-shoot. Still tried to take as many pictures as I could. Hope you will get an idea of how I styled the very simple, very common red-white Jamdani saree for Durgapooja!
