My first memories of Lohri/Pongal/Sankranti includes seeing mum waking up early morning chanting prayers in front of the fire for abundant crops and taking rounds of the pious fire in the evenings while throwing peanuts and sweets in the sacred fire.
I remember her dressing in gorgeous sarees, some from her wedding trousseau. And I, most excitedly, made sets out of the glass bangles for her to wear, matched with her outfit.
With the festival round the corner, we have reason enough for all the women up there to dress up your best while the celebrations are on the air!
Here are a few gorgeous outfit ideas for Lohri this season. So, get ready to look sizzling hot this festive season!
Yup, I am still looking back at 2016. January is not yet done, so I am allowed, I think. Anyway, recently, I posted my favorite books that I read in 2016, and now I want to talk about other memorable experiences last year. Brace yourselves, this is going to be a long one.

I remember the time a couple of years back when we had just bought our house, and were arranging for the painting. It was an exciting time, going through shade cards, and pinned images, and deciding on a color scheme for the place. The reality of getting the house painted though was so cumbersome. While we were eagerly anticipating moving into our new home, the painters were in absolutely no hurry at all.
The whole process of prepping the walls, sanding, and then waiting for the paint to dry, was such a laborious and tedious process, that even now, I shudder at the thought of going through that again, which I need to do soon as the old paint has started to fade and peel.
At one point in all our lives, we’re going to want to redesign or renovate our kitchens. We spend so much time in our kitchens that we quickly begin to notice how certain things could be improved or how the placement of other things annoys us.
Whatever your reason for doing so, a kitchen renovation project is no small task and should not be started without a plan and without doing the proper research beforehand. It’s a massive project that requires tons of materials and of course, money.
Yes, here’s a shocker. You’re going to have pull out the big bucks to succeed in a kitchen renovation project. And here’s another shocker: You’re probably going to go over budget.
