Yearly Archives: 2017

I went through a phase during my teenage years where I dyed my hair black, red, then pink, followed by platinum blonde. Full fringes, side fridges, highlights, lowlights, layers and even a disaster of a perm for a while. When I turned twenty, I made the decision to stop messing with my hair […]

Goodbye Long Hair (Whether You Like It or Not)


If I ever find myself stuck in a rut, I ask myself: “what is special and unique about where you are in life right now?”. It always seemed impossible to live in the moment, to breathe in the now and just be. Having suffered with depression and later anxiety, it was […]

How I Learnt to Live Now!



We are so lucky to visit England during Easter. Adorable lambs, happy daffodils, pale yellow primroses and the weather isn’t unbearably cold. Easter celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ after his persecution and crucifixion. This spring festival is celebrated on the Sunday after the first full moon after the northern spring equinox.

Baby’s First Easter


Sonshine and I have recently arrived in England after our second international journey together, just the two of us. Flying solo with a baby is a very daunting prospect. I flew from Heathrow to Nagpur with a peaceful ten week old, last week I returned with an energetic 11 month old. […]

Flying Solo with a Baby



Baby’s first words are exciting, something to look forward to. There was a bit of added suspense in our home, will they be English words or Marathi words? Baby babble is universal, the first sounds and noises every baby makes are similar across the globe. When my son started to produce sounds, I made a […]

Babies Can Speak Marathi


If you were reading my blog when I first moved to India, you will know that I craved (mourned) good cheese, a lot. I even daydreamed of cheese, living in a cheesy nightmare. The processed cheese found in the supermarkets in Nagpur is comparable to rubber socks, so bad it was best to […]

My Life-Changing Cheesy Discovery



The Rajasthani style is a fusion between tribal and regal, the fantastic printed patterns mixed with splendid, heavy jewellery. These beautiful women are also extremely modest and cover their heads when in the presence of men or elders.
Have you ever taken the Myers-Briggs type test? It’s a really fascinating (and rather long) personality test based on the four category psychological type theory proposed by Carl Jung. Do you prefer to spend time in the outer world (Extrovert) or in your own inner world (Introvert)? Do you generally focus on the information you can […]

Attempting to Stop Over-Extroverting


Holy Cow in India with Wonky horns
Happy New Year, Friends! I hope you’ve all had a great start to 2017, it’s so weird to think that my baby was born last year. Time just goes so fast when you are a parent, it just runs past you, just like my little one will be doing in […]

Yay! 2017!
