Holy Belly Wine Tasting Workshop

Holy Belly is the new exciting, boutique catering in town. Led by a very talented and interesting trio – Janeya, Rishi & Prerna, it offers some great new ideas. They have ‘Food by Mood’ and an amazing ‘sundowners’ offering. So next time you want to find a boutique catering company for your next dinner party, you know who to call!!

They recently hosted a workshop on wine tasting at the Villeroy & Boch, at The Emporia Mall. We took Myra along, her little friend Aaryan was also there and both of them had a blast running around and playing hide and seek. I am happy to report they broke nothing!!!! :) Some pics from the event. Follow them on Facebook here – https://www.facebook.com/pages/HolyBelly/1041387835874902?fref=ts&ref=br_tf

Amazon India Fashion Week 2015 day 1

Went for the AIFW last night. Held at Pragati Maidan and boasting of the top names from the fashion world, it’s a treat to go when I can get out. My mom’s here, so all thanks to her!! :) We attended JJ Valaya’s show, with the theme – ‘Bolshoi Bazaar’. It was a beautiful play of Indian embroidery and gorgeous prints like Ikat with a hint of Russia. While the set and music was mesmerising, the hair was dramatic and the clothes were beautiful lines, textiles and fur. I specially loved the Men’s line. Here’s a look –

AIFW 2015

Before the show we got a peek into the Harper’s Bazaar exhibit showcasing their reinvention of Khadi, in collaboration with the top designers of the country. If you find yourself at AIFW 2015 – make sure you find this stall because it’s beautifully done and you will find yourself admiring creations in Khadi, for a long time. And wanting almost each one of them!

India Design ID 2015

Recently Delhi saw the most happening design event in the city – the India Design ID 2015.

Being a design crazy person, I loved every bit of it. There were new brands and concepts that I discovered, interesting people we met and the general vibe of the place was so fun and amazing. There was great food to – from Guppy to burgers from a van. And events and parties around the event which, we were able to go to (thanks to the kids behaving quite well in general and keeping their sleep schedule) and had a blast! This was also a start tho a very fun, tiring and hectic 2 weeks, as we left for Chennai soon after.

Here’s what I was upto at the India Design ID 2015…

Le Creuset Event

My friend Bijay Thapa from – SugarDaddyBakes invited me to this fun lil event that he was hosting along with the very cool, very stylish cookware company – Le Creuset – Find them on Facebook right here – lecreuset.in

They had a few baking professionals come in and spread some xmas cheer by giving us a live desserts demo and tips and later we all got to wipe the spoons clean. Yummy!!!! I have to say without being biased – Bijay is such an amazing speaker and so seamless in what he does that it was a joy to be part of this. Myra thoroughly enjoyed, not only eating the cakes but also listened with great intent. She hasn’t yet tried her hand at it herself though, neither has her mother. :)

Pallavan 2014 Fair, Gurgaon

Myra’s preschool – Pallavan, once a year holds a fair at their branch in Anandgram. These are a few glimpses of that. My lil monkey was so happy and laughed with pure joy while riding the train and catching the bubbles and she is just so lovely. So lovely, that it breaks my heart. I get all kinds of crazy emotional just observing her out in the world now that she is growing up and doing new things, and making new discoveries and becoming more of herself. I am pretty sure all of us with kids feel this way, right? :)

The Belaire, Gurgaon

We live in one of the most socially active condominiums in Gurgaon, I think. The organising committee is super active and actually pulls off some nice events for the residents here. One such was a drawing competition for kids. We took Myra. The theme was ‘friendship’ and Myra drew balloons, upside down. Very very seriosuly. :)
