Road to Hana, Hawaii

Road to Hana 9

Hi there my fellow travelers,

Been a while since I wrote a travel post. I had the chance to visit the beautiful island of Maui last month and I loved it even more. I got the chance to collab with Valley Isle Excursions and go on a fun road to Hana trip. If you are not comfortable driving on the windy hawaiian roads to hana, I would suggest you book a tour and enjoy the views. You also get a chance to meet some cool new people and have fun along the way instead of worrying about driving. The tour company was extremely professional , timely and our driver was very knowledgeable. Continue reading

What to wear to a causal summer dinner

Purple Dress 11

Hi Loves,

How have you all been? I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. Work has kept me insanely busy. Finally I got the time to write a post on styling a simple yet chic outfit for a casual dinner in the summer. I am a big fan of unique and flare’y dresses. For my night out I wore this cute purple embroidered dress with some animal print accessories. Since my figure is more hourglass shaped, I gravitate more towards flowy feminine dresses. I would say it’s very important to be stylish yet comfortable to do justice to your outfit 🙂 Continue reading

2 Days in Prague, Czech Republic

Prague 13

Hi Travelers,

How was your weekend? I had the chance to visit the beautiful city of Prague last year during my Eurotrip. A paradise for the aimless wanderer – this city that takes you back in time, with its grand castles, cobble streets, art and music. The Czechs have been famous for producing some of the world’s finest brews in the world and needless to say the best beer I’ve had so far has been in Prague. I stayed at a wonderful Hotel U KRÁLE KARLA in Prague. This was walking distance to the castle and was located in a gorgeous location. The room was beautifully decorated in ancient style and they even serve you a glass of sparkling wine upon checking in. Continue reading

Tips on Styling a Statement Necklace

Statement Necklace 5

Hello Fashionista’s,

How are you doing? Today I wanted to post some tips on styling statement necklaces. I did this shoot at the De Young Museum in San Francisco. Though the museum itself was closed, it’s a wonderful place to hangout and capture some shots. Anyway, I went here for a photography class and ended up taking some pictures for myself.

Amsterdam Travel Guide

Amsterdam 39

Hi Fellow Travelers,

Hope you all have been good. I have been insanely busy with my new job responsibilities and haven’t been able to post in a while. However, since a number of my friends were asking me about my euro trip, I decided to spend some time and write about my visit to Amsterdam. Needless to say, I loved the city. It has everything you need in a small parameter and you can bike to pretty much everywhere. The quaint suburban dutch towns within a small driving distance are each unique and beautiful in their own way. All in all, Amsterdam is a place I would move to in a heartbeat given a choice.

Styling a Peplum Top

Peplum Top 12

Hi Loves,

Hope you’re all doing great. Today I wanted to post about this fun and flirty peplum top I styled with Jeans. I wore this outfit on my trip to Spain and it was comfy and cute. Due to my hourglass figure, I am not a big fan of peplum tops, but somehow this one suited me perfectly. The lace on the top gave it a pretty look overall. Continue reading

Cappadocia, Turkey

Cappadocia 21

Hi All,

Hope you all had a great weekend. I went to Cappadocia with family last December it was something out of this world. I have never seen a place like this – cave hotels, beautiful rock formations, snow covered landscapes, cave hotels and so much more. I stayed at the amazing Gamirasu Cave Hotel and had so much fun there. You can read about it in my blog-post here.

I had a chance to collaborate with Euphrates Tours while visiting Cappadocia and had the most wonderful time there. They are very professional and took good care of me and my family. Our tour guide was really funny and witty and extremely knowledgeable. I would absolutely recommend booking them if you plan on visiting Cappadocia. We were in the city for a day and they had the whole itinerary planned for us. Continue reading

Gamirasu Cave Hotel, Cappadocia, Turkey

Gamirasu 34

Hi There,

I visited Cappadocia (Turkey) with my family last December and I absolutely loved the city. You can read more about “Top things to do in Cappadocia” in my next blogpost. One of the top items in my list was to live in a Cave hotel. I got a chance to collaborate with and live in the Gamirasu Cave Hotel and it was one of the most enthralling and fun experiences of my life. Since I went there with my mom and we had both the king suite and the queen suite to ourselves. The rooms were the size of my house and has amazing facilities, the view was amazing and the hotel in general was very warm and welcoming. The staff at the reception and restaurant was really nice and kind. Overall, we had a wonderful time there and I am hoping to go back one day and spend more time enjoying the hotel itself.

The history of Ephesus, Turkey

Ephesus 22

Hello Travelers,

Happy New Year…!!!

Hope you all had a wonderful 2016 and have an even better 2017. I had a great year with a lot of fun travel adventures, brought a new house, got a promotion 🙂 and I hope the good luck continues onto the new year. I visited Turkey last December and Ephesus was my first stop. The city is about an hour’s drive from Izmir (you can fly from Istanbul to the Izmir airport). We stayed in Selçuk city which is near the ruins and has a number of hotels. Though it was really cold this time of the year in Turkey, the advantage of a visit now was that the sites were not as crowded and I could capture some beautiful shots of the sites. Continue reading

Gifts From Thoughtfully

Thoughtfully 9

Hello Wonderful People,

How have you been? Can’t believe we are already nearing the end of the year. It feels like it just started, doesn’t it? Well I love the holidays. The sound of jingles playing everywhere, the smell of hot chocolate, cute cookies, everyone wearing more reds and sparkles, it just feels like everyone is so happy. However, the holidays bring along the stress of looking for the perfect gift for your loved ones. If you’re like me you make multiple trips to the mall and either return empty handed or with stuff for yourself that you never intended to buy ;).

“A truly thoughtful gift is a story – a curated adventure perfect for each special individual in your life.”
