Do you pay attention to your thoughts?
Change your thoughts and change your life! What a simple concept.
Yet such a complex thing to practice.
We are all energy and what we vibrate out into the world is what is reflected back to us.
I'm taking small steps to be more mindful of my thoughts from this day forward.

Friday Mood.
The Singapura print is inspired by vintage batik used for kebayas.

Grateful for another beautiful day here in Singapore.
Often times I go through the motions of waking up and getting on with the day but forget to savour each little thing whether it is eating breakfast or taking my daughter to school. Everything becomes a chore and I get so caught up in the day to day activities. Before I know it months have gone by and then a year.
So I'm trying to be more present, in the moment. And mindful of my thoughts and actions.
How do you practice being present?

If you have good thoughts, they will shine out of your
face like sun beams and you will always look lovely 😊

The Samarkand collection takes its inspiration from the city of Samarkand which was at the heart of the Silk Route through Central Asia. The Silk Route was an ancient network of roads initially for trade but quickly became the beacon of cultural and artistic exchange between the West and the East.

Something about these iron gates and the setting, the frangipanni tree in blossom, these beautiful shutters...makes me nostalgic. It reminds me of Dhaka and Mumbai. Tales by Seth and Lahiri. And the funny thing is I can't tell you why I feel nostalgia when I see this picture but I do.
Does this ever happen to you? Where a picture incites a feeling in you but you don't know why?

Do you believe in the power of your mind?
Starting my w/end with this beautiful quote:
'Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.' - Goethe

Ever have that feeling of being caught between a rock and a hard place? I've been there many times and while giving up seems like the easier option, hang tight. The tide will turn. And when it does, the rewards will be that much sweeter and bountiful! I promise ❤️

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you see a banana leaf?

Did you know 'kalapata' is the bengali word for banana leaf? You might be wondering why banana leaf?!
Well, I wanted something that reflects a little bit of me...hence choosing a bengali word (Bengali is the language spoken in Bangladesh). And it is a lovely reminder of lush tropical places and feeds my love for travel and wanderlust!
