Happiest Diwali to everyone celebrating! I hope this year brings you the world of laughter, love, & joy! 🧡 For everyone who isn’t, I wanted to share some background on what Diwali is about! Diwali is the Hindu festival of lights that’s the celebration of light vs darkness & marks the victory of good vs evil. It’s a celebration of goddess Lakshmi who is the goddess of prosperity. I remember growing up we’d celebrate with lighting deepams which fun fact: is what my name means Deepica = deepam = light! My mom would make a TON of food, we’d have a bunch of family and friends over and I’d be forced to some sort of dance which I low-key loved the attention from let’s be real lolol. So many fond memories growing up! It’s such a beautiful holiday and even though I’m not with my family this year celebrating, I love that it stands for new beginnings. Especially with last nights elections, I feel so hopeful for what’s to come. xx #diwali #deepawali #newbeginnings #positivity #happy #love #family #joy
in true Diwali tradition, I’m wearing all brand new clothes & jewelry & this yellow piece just screams light ✨
