Staycation!

If you follow me on Instagram/Snapchat you know that I was staycationing in Chicago. Hari tried his best to convince me for a vacation this year but I wasn’t ready yet. So he came up with this brilliant idea of staycation and I din’t have the heart to say no this time. Also, this is my only ‘travel’ this year, I loved it so much that I wanna document it here. So on Dec 25th we went on a staycation, we stayed at the Marriot in Wilmette which was amazing (good job, husband)! We checked-in, toured the room and got into our swimsuits and headed straight to the swimming pool and oh boy, we had a whole pool to ourselves and had a blast. You know what, I’ll let the pictures do the talking. 😀 Read More …

Let It Snow!

So we had the first snow of the season in Chicago this week. This is my fifth winter in Chicago and yet it’s so special every time it snows. Four years ago on a cold cold evening, we landed in Chicago. We were jetlagged AF and woke up to our stomachs rambling at 4 am and we drove to Denny’s for breakfast. We planted our bums on a window side booth, little did I know that there’s gonna be a grand show outside. While I was busy digging into eggs, there were fluffy flurries falling down. I don’t have a photo of it, but it’s captured so well in my eyes. It felt like someone from up above had a pillow fight and it tore into million feathers that gently touched the ground. Needless to say, it was magical, it was as if I was teleported to a winter wonderland. Even thinking about it makes me so dreamy and happy.Read More …

Falling for fall- Part 1

 

My favorite season is upon us and the Chicagoland is so beautiful this time of the year. Every corner is so instagram/snapchat worthy. We go on an evening stroll every other day and try to click pictures of the gorgeous maple trees and other Fall stuff. I was all dressed up(usually I’ll be in active wear) yesterday and H managed to get few pictures of me too.*happy dance* 😀

Speaking of maple tree, check out this DIY Wall Art that I made last year with the maple tree leaves from the backyard.
