Brunch at Beretta

Ok, ok, I know brunch has nothing to do with my big fat Indian wedding, but brunch on a sunny Sunday morning is my number one favorite thing on the planet. Today future hubby, sister, bro-in-law, and I went to Beretta in the mission for brunch and it was spectacular. Hubby had a breakfast pizza and it was one of the most amazing things I've ever eaten. If you ever go there try the charred radicchio, its pure heaven. How delish does this look? I mean, who doesn't love pictures of food?!

The Saree Scramble


I land in Bombay on January 21st. My wedding is February 4th (and festivities start five days before that). I don’t have a wedding saree yet as I’m waiting to get to Bombay to start the search. (Have you ever heard of a bride waiting until the WEEK BEFORE HER WEDDING to find her dress?!) Ahhhh … xanex, please. When I am staying up with thoughts of weddings and travels running through my head I often scour the internet for images of pretty white sarees to get me excited and ready for the seven-day dash. I found this one today by my all-time favorite Indian designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee … it literally took my breath away. (However, I just got an email from my sister saying she didn’t like it and the color was too drab. Sigh. The search continues ...)

I Lichens You


My love affair with Etsy and paper continues. I have a not-so secret dream to open my very own stationary shop one day. I hope that it looks something like this fabulous lady, thegreatlakes on Etsy. I love her simple yet heart-grabbing phrases, delectable graphics, and effortless style. The great lakes is a hand printed goods company based in Brooklyn with a love of all things natural and nostalgic that fuel the design campfires.
