Fingers Crossed

I am typing this post with my fingers crossed. As at least 92.3% of you must be aware, having tried to type with crossed fingers at various junctures in life, it’s not easy. But one must do what one got to do. I am currently going through a phase of excesses and all these excesses are the ones that I love! Like travel, oh my god, so much travel that my travel toothpaste is finishing faster than my regular home one. Same to same tube size, people, same to same. And excess of places to style and decorate. The wildlife lodge project is in full swing, I moved homes recently and I am moving cities next month! (More on that later. My instagram gang has had the first dibs on that front…they have been helping me shortlist my next abode). My mind is overflowing with inspiration and style overlaps and decor ideas and when I close my eyes it’s like I have an eye-closed-version of pinterest running there, if you know what I mean. And an excess of things to do. Good things all like meeting people, learning new stuff, upgrading technology yada, and erm, some, not that pleasant, like renewing my Driver’s license. I have been a wayward, lawless, wild citizen these past couple of weeks since my license expired and I am going to hide under the bed with my cat before you all out there with intact licenses start tch tching at me.
So the fingers are crossed for even though I might whine a teeny tiny bit, and would love [LOVE] to have a week with nothing to do but put my feet up and get mauled by my mad cat, I do not want this exciting excesses phase to end. All this wild rushing from one thing to the other, from one place to the next, is exhilarating!  This blog of mine and those emails of yours are getting somewhat neglected, I must admit, but but, give me a few more weeks, my kittens. I promise to be less wayward and lawless. And yes, I will get that license renewed! With my superior driving skills, I should be awarded licenses! At home! Along with a Tshirt that says ‘Superior Driving Ninja’! But no. Red tape and ignorance of my brilliance and all. *mutter mutter and eyes appropriately rolled at those licensing authorities.
I am off to Bangalore early morning tomorrow. This time it’s all work, and work that I am really looking forward to. I will be spending the day at my favorite textile studio, selecting and designing furnishing for my project. And as with my other trips, you will get sneak peaks all day on instagram. Next week there is another trip lined up with a friend, a first-of-it’s-kind trip for me, and I will tell you more about it when I come back. There is also a huge announcement lined up for the next month, so my lovelies, as they say, keep reading this blog of mine! You will find it all here 🙂
You be good
I will see you soon!

  1. I see you are travelling a lot, so what would you say about a trip that starts in New Zealand and ends Nepal for which you only need your laptop? And what would you say if this trip would come along with some tips on how the wool felt ball rugs are made? And if we can offer you even a story that can add charm and mystery in any home just by using one of these rugs? Hope you will enjoy the trip:

  2. Your's an exciting life, live it up and thanks a bunch for taking us through the journey! 🙂

  3. I completely agree, Siddhartha 🙂

    Hugs Vinsome! I'll be seeing you soon 🙂

  4. Looking forward to it all Bhavna! May the force be with you! And I know you will rock it!

  5. Life with lots of travel is a good life 🙂 enjoy…
