42 Lighthouse Street by Taru Villas ‘An Oasis of Tranquility’

My stay at the 42 Lighthouse Street by Taru Villas wasn’t pre-planned. One Friday, I joined a familiarization tour organized by the Taru Villas team with a couple of other colleagues of mine, to inspect their properties. We started with the furthest (Tangalle) and moved towards Colombo, stopping by all the Taru properties in-between. By the time we reached Galle, it was quite late and … Continue reading 42 Lighthouse Street by Taru Villas ‘An Oasis of Tranquility’

Transform Your Bedroom Into A Peaceful Retreat

Time and time again, I have wished my bedroom could look like a hotel room with all the luxuries. Haven’t you…? In reality, not every one of us can afford a bedroom like that, but (fortunately) transforming your bedroom into a sanctuary, you could unwind in after a busy day of work, shouldn’t cost you a fortune. Between smart mattresses and counting sheep, we seem to … Continue reading Transform Your Bedroom Into A Peaceful Retreat

My First Visit To New York City

The iconic New York City needs no introduction, but if you are a first time traveller to the largest city in the United States, knowing your way around the city can be quite helpful.

I have always wanted to roam the streets of New York and … Continue reading My First Visit To New York City

B’day Resolutions|Why Not?!

Hello lovelies  🙂 If you are following me on IG, you would have seen one of my recent posts ‘Yesterday, I turned thirty’. I have been thinking, what a difference it would or rather, it could make in our lives if we, instead of making a wish, take on a resolution on our birthday. I do understand and quite well agree with all those who might … Continue reading B’day Resolutions|Why Not?!

Finding Calm In Everyday Chaos

One may instantly assume that working from home is like a walk in the park. Well, that is exactly what it is not. Between taking care of a baby and finding inspiration for my work, I struggle to find the one thing, that is as important as ‘a balance’… “time…for…myself”. Continuously our minds shift back and forth between work and personal responsibilities, that we often … Continue reading Finding Calm In Everyday Chaos

Beeralu Lacemakers Of The South

About a year ago, I remember scrolling through my insta feed, and seeing a bride dressed in a  white cotton saree with intricate lace work. Not only was it different to the glimmering stone worked sarees bride’s usually choose, this piece of work looked quite exquisite. After admiring it for a few more minutes I completely forgot about it until I paid Galle Fort a … Continue reading Beeralu Lacemakers Of The South

Traveling with a baby for the first time? Hear me out!

My husband and I travel often ( he, more than myself) but I tag along whenever I can. Even when I was two months pregnant I hopped on a flight to the US (everyone said a long flight would be a bad idea😐). I was anxious at the start but then I just eased into it gradually. This year when my baby turned six months … Continue reading Traveling with a baby for the first time? Hear me out!
