Life Lately #1

Life Lately #1

by

Of late, I have been feeling like my blogging has got a bit mechanical – a bunch of book reviews (usually done way after I have read the book), the occasional restaurant review, but I think the earlier personal note has started to go missing. Partly, because somewhere along the way I started doing book reviews for publishers and food posts for restaurants (meaning I have a deadline), and basically the blog has started feeling more business-like, than like a personal blog.

I can’t say I can go completely back to the old tone and content as i no longer feel like I am writing solely for friends and family. But I also don’t want the blog to exist merely as a database of places to go, and books to read. I don’t know how the new style will evolve but I plan to have a little more about my daily life and routines, things I am thinking, what the kids are doing/saying to me, and so on.

Let’s see how things evolve. Old readers, I hope you will like my going back to more of what made you read my blog read in the first place, newer readers, I hope you find reading about the person behind the blog as interesting as the blog itself.

Fingers crossed and hoping.

Shopping for ethnic wear at Craftsvilla

Shopping for ethnic wear at Craftsvilla

Technically speaking, sarees are the easiest clothes to shop online. There is no confusion about fit, and size at all. So, sarees should have been at the forefront of the online shopping experience.

But frankly, I still for the most part go to my old favorites – Nalli, Kumarans’s and the like – traditional brick and motor shoes for saree shopping.

Until this online shop – Craftsvilla came to my attention. Craftsvilla is touted as India’s largest online ethnic wear store, and the amount of selection they have, it sure feels like it.

I am a big fan of Benarasi sarees, and I was impressed by the collection of these sarees online.
