Hedon

I fell in love with this cover when Penguin Random House sent me this book for review.
The picture here doesn’t do justice to it, the pink butterfly is just so much more vibrant in person. And there is a soft, velvety feel to it that almost makes you feel like you are touching an actual live butterfly.

Our weekend in Instagram Pictures

I have been contemplating a blog layout change for quite some time. I’ve generally been feeling pretty uninspired and (oh did I mention super-busy and distracted?) lately, and the blog has been suffering a bit.

I do hope that a layout and theme change helps me to be a little more active on this space. As of now, the look is still a work in progress, and things are broken here and there, but already I feel better about the blog. I think it really needs this face-lift.

A High-Spirited Time with Sula Vineyards

by

One extremely rainy day, I traversed a very small section of a heavily traffic-logged part of Bangalore in order to make my date with some delicious wine and brandy offerings by Sula Vineyards. When I was younger, brandy was very much seen as a drink of the older generation - something to be had with ...

Having a pup around the house (yes, we have a pup, and a formal intro will come along later), has spurred us on to become a wee bit more active in our daily lives. All of us have been spending more time outdoors playing with little Coco (our cutie lab), and last week, we kind ...

Teaser Tuesdays: A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms

by

I am really loving all this back story into the Targaryen family that I am getting reading these various prequels to A Song of Ice and Fire. Dangerous Women that I read last year was fantastic, dramatic, and bloodthirsty all at the same time. But these simple Dunk and Egg tales from A Knight of ...
