I really enjoyed reading this personal and unsensationalized analysis of the pressures on British Asians to enter arranged marriages, definitely worth a look.
Designwali does this fun segment where she imagines a dress as a room. She is always on the money and I really wish I could come up with such great pairings!
When I was a kid, I would raid the paint chips at the hardware store. I was so sure that there had to be something I could do with all those pretty colours! Maybe this would have worked...if not, I can settle for this.
Three things I love: embroidery, classic books and pretty flowers. All three in one object? Sheer joy, via Making it Lovely.
Times like this, I can't help but question my husband's decision to live in Canada over England. My house would have been so much prettier over there...the shopping...the SHOPPING!
yay fun colour palettes for spring!
