Indian Glitz & Glam

It was quite a month long break! What say people? Did you miss me? Did you miss my posts? I surely missed you all my lovely readers, but then I was enjoying my vacation way too much hence I took a little break from the blogging community. However, I am back now! My vacation is over, and the routine life is back in place. I am back in States. To all my Indian readers – how were your holidays/festivals? Did you have loads of fun? Did you have a blast? Because I did! Being in India during this festive season is the best decision ever. No one else celebrates their festivals like we Indians do! We eat, we gift, we travel, we buy, we give, we celebrate, we literally have a blast (specially on Diwali)! What say??
Anyhow, I must get over my vacation days now considering I don’t want you guys to feel J or anything 😉 (specially my Indian readers/bloggers/friends who did not get a chance to visit India this year)!
Today I am sharing a very few pictures from the main festivals/ceremonies I celebrated during my visit to India. This time I was totally in to Saris. Here’s the proof..

P.S. Shall post more pictures from my visit in the coming posts! So stay tuned 😀

Pattern Play

Another Monday and another week of Life! I have very few words to share with you all today. Let’s just say I am not in the best of moods and/or available to chit chat today. I would like to speak less and listen more (at least for today).

It was a dull weekend for me. Same life. Same events. Nothing new! If there is no newness in my life, I tend to slow down.. And I guess that’s what I am doing right now. I am relaxing.. and slowing down.. and taking the back seat.

Leaving you all with a few pictures we clicked when we drove to Fayetteville last month. Wonder why these were sitting in my archives for a couple of weeks!

Traditionally Done

There are very rare occasions when I wear traditional Indian outfits. Yesterday was one of them. It’s just that I don’t feel very comfortable in Indian outfits. There is too much going on for me, and as you know me, I am a minimalist! Stacking up jewelry or OD-ing is just not my cup of tea.. I try to keep it less, no matter what!

Anyways, so what was I saying – yes, yesterday Mom and I went to a Gurudwara (Sikh temple). Hence, I chose to dress up in this pretty dress. No wonder Mr. Husband was all over me!! He love me this way.. So here you go, enjoy a few pictures on a Monday! As I said before, don’t worry, this too shall pass 🙂

Another Day, Another Dress

Hello everyone! It feels good to be back on this page after almost two weeks. Such breaks are not bad at all, after all who doesn’t enjoy a little time off?
Truth be told, this short break was completely unintentional as I was very busy in arranging stuff, shopping, attending countless weddings, packing bags and then finally flying back to Phoenix. I barely had the time to switch my computer on and write a blog! Anyhow, better late than never..
So, if you don’t follow Rising Colors on Facebook yet, (which you totally SHOULD), <a href="http://www.blogger.com/%3Cdiv%20id=%22fb-root%22%3E%3C/div%3E%20%3Cscript%3E(function(d,%20s,%20id)%20%7B%20var%20js,%20fjs%20=%20d.getElementsByTagName(s)%5B0%5D;%20if%20(d.getElementById(id))%20return;%20js%20=%20d.createElement(s);%20js.id%20=%20id;%20js.src%20=%20%22//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));

” target=”_blank”>you would not know that we flew back to Phoenix this weekend and that is how our 6 week-long vacation in India came to an end.. I was busy packing last week and this week unpacking is killing me (On that note, packing and unpacking are the two activities I completely DISLIKE)..
Anyways.. I am keeping it short today, though believe me I have so, so much to share with you all. I ‘ll be back with a lot of updates from my India trip.

On the outfit part, I wore this lovely Anarkali dress for a wedding in Delhi. This is one of my many purchases from India. I love the frock style cut of this dress, and the fact it is pure cotton makes it even more comfortable. The high collar adds an extra oomph to the outfit. Enjoy a few pics (and excuse the quality of the pictures, as these were not clicked with a very good camera).
P.S. Meet my sister-in-law (last picture) who has accompanied us to Phoenix. I look forward to spend great time with her!

Cheers!
Ritika
