How to: Nail-art for Easter and Holi Festivities

Happy Belated Holi and Happy Easter Everyone

When you think about spring, what exactly do you think about? I think about colors, flowers and colorful festivals. In India, we celebrate Holi, the festival of color during spring. Here in USA, Easter is celebrated around the same time. The tradition for Easter is making cute-colorful eggs, whereas Holi is all about bright-vibrant color!

This year, these festivals happened to be only three days apart! Holi was on last Wednesday, March 27th and Easter is on coming Sunday, March 31st. Therefore, I did my nails inspired by colors, vibrance, patterns, dots, festivals. And, of course, I am going to share how to do it here...

7 Best ways to Lose your Pregnancy Weight

Happy Birthday Sweetheart! 

Friends! today is a very special day of our life. It is Auripra's second birthday! It seems these (almost) three years, from the day we got our pregnancy test result positive till today, flew super fast! New baby, for the first time parent, is always a challenge! Especially, when they are staying far away from family. Hence, it was tough for us with her, at least for first six weeks, before my mom arrived to rescue us. 

After my mom came, I started eating so much that instead of losing pregnancy weight I started gaining more... I still remember when Auripra was around 8 weeks old, somebody asked me whether I was pregnant at the point! It was embarrassing, however, it was kind of okay when I said I have a two month old.

I am always petite in stature. My pre-pregnancy weight was 108Lb and just before Auripra was born I was 135Lb. Of course, I lost some after she was born! After my mom came, I was again around 130Lb or so. I should mention here Auripra was exclusively on breast-feeding until she was 6 months old and after that she used to have one solid feeding everyday, otherwise, I was still breast-feeding her until she was 9 months, that is when I stopped breast-feeding her altogether.

Hello everyone! I am going to tell you one of my childhood obsessions that I am still obsessed with and She is none other than The Princess of Wales, Lady Diana.

Anyway, today I am telling you all these because 10 of the Princess' evening dresses were on Kerry Taylor Auction today in UK including famous black dress that she wore in White House Ball in 1985 and danced with John Travolta. The money raised in the auction will go for charity.

How to: Wearable Green eyeliner and Green eyeshadow Look

Happy St. Patrick's Day Everyone!

St. Patrick's day is on this sunday March 17th. The tradition is to wear everything 'Green' for the occasion. Emerald green is a color totally in trend in this coming spring and summer.

Thanks God!!! This is March and not to mention, we are so ready for Spring/Summer. Lately, I have been googling a lot about what is trending, color wise, fashion wise, style wise in coming spring and summer. Evidently, Fashion Weeks in different big cities (such as New York, Paris, Milan and London) are the trend setters. I went to NYFW website and browsed through different designers' Spring/Summer, 2013 collections and also went to some experts websites like Elle, Herpersbazar etc. Click Here for another post from one of my blogger buddies, Estilo Hedónico, she did a post on NWFW: Spring/Summer 2013, too and that helped me too. The following is the result of my Googlearch (Google+Research)! Funny? Or, not so much!
