4 Websites for A Homemaker

As a stay-at-home wife who works from home, most of my days revolve around getting food on that table, do the daily household chores and manage my freelance content writing. In between there are days when I want to laze around and browse websites which give me the best solution for my needs. I am sharing five websites which I frequently visit to get some ideas and a bit of motivation.
1. DIY Projects – I am really a fan of these DIY projects and ideas. There are many simple DIY ideas for your home decorations, getting a new hobby or just a better way at doing a particular thing, like for example, using the empty cold drink bottles as containers. I found many more simple DIY projects in Good Housekeeping and Lifehacker.
2. Recipes and Cooking – On days when I feel fancy and when the husband has had enough of the same old routine daal, chaawal and sabji I look up for some interesting and easy recipes. Whether it is a north-indian, south-indian, snacks or desserts you can get great recipes from Simple Indian recipes, All recipes, NDTV Food.Read More »


#DhotiPants: The New Rage!

If you have seen Tanu Weds Manu Returns you would not have had missed the dhoti pants which Kangana carried so effortlessly. This week I have picked up the dhoti pants as the Fashion Pick, and I am totally enamored with these pants. These pants have made a comeback and now are paired with kurtas and tops.

Suggested Looks

Look 1: Pair the dhoti pants with a tank top, t-shirt or tunic to make it look indo-western or a western outfit.

Look 2: Another way to carry is the traditional way with a mid thigh-length kurta. Wear a cotton kurta for the summers or dress up the dhoti-kurta look with a real fancy/embroidered kurta top.

Look 3: If you are all for edgy, wear it with a sari and blouse.

Vintage Round Sunglasses

All things girly and fashionable

My first pick for the Fashion Pick of the Week is the vintage round sunglasses that are such a hit this season. These round shaped shades give every outfit a sensational retro look and makes you look very ladylike.

These sunglasses are available in many eyeglass frame materials. My personal favorite are the ones which have a gold rim at the top like the one in the picture below
