It’s been a while since I did a blog post. Quite a few things were happening at my end and my work took a back seat. As you know I went to India for my brother’s wedding and after coming back, I just didn’t want to get back to a routine. I went into procrastination overload, where I kept on delaying tasks and other things I needed to sort out. Now from last week there has been a major shift in my lifestyle and I am slowly getting back to normal – which means working on my blog and other creative projects.
On the blog today I want to share my Holi lifestyle post. Holi, the festival of colours, is one of my favourite festivals. The concept of Holi is now very much popular in Europe. During summer, Holi music festivals are a big rage. Festival goers wear white and immerse themselves in a riot of colours.
Holi is spring time in India and weather is very pleasant. In UK however we don’t have any such weather luxuries. I remember once it even snowed in London on Holi but we still went outside to play. Even though it was windy, dark and grey but our spirits were high.
Here are some pictures of the decor I did outside in my back garden. I did the decor a day before when It was sunny. Next day, due to high winds most of my streamers couldn’t bare the ballistic winds. I kept the theme yellow and pink, used streamers, paper pompoms to create a Holi setting.
I wore this lovely mint colour kurta with soft rust colour plazzos which I picked up from Silk Worm. I met Silk Worm at an exhibition in Delhi. The designs are very fuss-free, delicate and fresh. I love their collection of skirts and palazzos. I paired the kurta with some ethnic jewellery. I didn’t want to take a chance with colours so changed my outfit when we played Holi.
Did you get a chance to play Holi in London. Not yet then don’t worry check this out Go and enjoy your wild side this Holi.
