Visiting Mumbai’s Slums

Dec 29, 2015 by

  For anyone who has been to India, you will know that it’s the kind of place that stays with you long after you leave. I went there for over two months in 2014, and I still think about my time there, probably on a daily basis. When I went to Goa, I stayed with Rachel, who writes Hippie In Heels. Yesterday morning, I woke up to en email notification for a pingback to a post I’d written about her dog, Huck. After investigating the reason for this email, I saw that she’d written a post called “17 Travel Bloggers You’d Be Crazy Not To Follow In 2016” and I made the list! Go check it out… Rachel said some pretty dang nice things about me. *blushing like crazy* After seeing this, I decided...

What’s The Big Hairy Deal?...

Aug 1, 2015 by

  Just under 5 years ago, I went from long curly locks and fringe to this in a matter of moments:     I had always wanted to try short hair before I finally went for the big chop, and I wanted to do it while I was young, since short hair seems to be the go-to cut for women of a certain age. Leave it to me to be contrary. It is kind of weird to look at these pictures because despite having wanted short hair and having kept it for many months, I don’t think of myself as a short hair gal. That girl almost doesn’t look like me. The original haircut was inspired by Carey Mulligan and this cute ‘do. Since my head/face is not the same shape as hers, my hair dresser...

Indian Heat

May 29, 2015 by

  It was just over a year ago that I was leaving India to travel to Nepal, Qatar and Europe. During that time, I felt the heat build. The temperatures went from hot during the day but comfortable for sleeping at night to atrociously hot during the day and unbearable for sleeping at night. Each night, I would wake up 4 or 5 times, completely soaking, and I would flip my pillow over, rotate myself to the other half of the bed and start anew. I can only imagine what the heat must feel like now, the heat that has resulted in a death toll of nearly 2000. My blog is typically not one that relays or discusses current events. I prefer to stick to the lighter side of life, to the stories that have...

Touched: Indian Kitten

Mar 4, 2015 by

“Phileas was picked up at a construction site in Bandra. His mother had just died a few days earlier from eating rat poison disguised in human food. Phileas and his two identical sisters were rescued this Friday. We bravely tried to save the two little girl kittens too…but it seems like they got some of the poison from the mother’s milk and succumbed to it – one died this Saturday and the other on Sunday. Both the days Phileas was found snuggled up against his sisters – cuddling them even as they passed away.” ~ “With the sudden change in the weather, we had a sudden inflow of babies that were separated from their mamas… These three precious babies lost their families to horrible accidents over the weekend. We need YOUR help to save their...
