Treasure Island

Cousins, chai and a closet full of vintage sarees, fabrics and outfits. A recipe for the ultimate laid-back afternoon that transported us  to another time. The venue, my cousin, powerhouse actress and fellow malang Nadia Jamil's cosy guest room where, she, Gull and I drifted through her most treasured and magnificent collection.

The Unexpected Joys of the Ladies Queue

Liz Scully

I am a big fan of the Ladies queue. Not the queue for the toilets, oh no, this is a special line for ladies, so they’re not rubbing up against (and more importantly jostled) by uncouth men.

Indians are generally very polite people and they are particularly careful and polite to visiting ladies.

Although there are very notable exceptions at train stations – where fleecing visitors and pinching ladies abounds. But generally a very polite nation.

Summer Brightens in White


It's summer again and pastel shades are back!  Linen and cotton are the fabric of the season. Breezy pale hues take over the dull greys and browns of winter.


My personal choice however is  white - pure, pristine, lacy and innocent!

A pair of crisp, white linen trousers or a white lacy, sheer blouse. Nothing can beat the color so loved by the Greek gods and goddesses.

Baby Girl's Nursery Makeover

We went with a soft grey colour on the walls before we found out if it was a girl or boy because I knew either way I wanted a colour I wouldn't get sick of and that they could grow into and I LOVE Grey! So the dark blue walls of my husbands "guitar/music room" were painted over.

Once we found out it was a girl we decided on the theme of grey, white and bling :) This was the theme on the main day of our wedding at our reception and since baby girl was originally due ON our 1 year anniversary I thought it was only fitting.
