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…

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…

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…

Tick Minneriya off your travel bucket list next summer

Lemon and Honey Glazed Sticky Pork Ribs – A Lankan Twist

Are you thinking of some homemade juicy pork ribs? I know there are many recipes out there but the first time I made pork ribs I just went ahead with my gut estimates. Having done trial and error a couple of times, finally I’ve established my own recipe. I often prefer homemade to restaurant cooked….

Lush Inspired DIY Bath Bombs

I love Lush products. In fact, it is the concept that I really admire – fresh handmade cosmetics. So after much consideration, I decided to make my own Lush-inspired products starting from bath bombs. At the time of making I had not stated this blog so I honestly don’t have any pictures but surely the…

Creamy Potato And Pumpkin Soup

O the rainy season is back. Living in a tropical country, closer to the equater, we naturally would prefer a chilled drink over a warm one. But days like these,  when the gloomy weather sets in by 2-3 in the afternoon, we all settle for an early dinner in a cozy nook of the house….
