Just a few shots I took during Diwali celebrations with my family 🙂
Hope you guys had a spooky and frightful Halloween this year! I got back into the Halloween spirit and decided to dress up this year! The thing is, Halloween isn’t so widely celebrated here in India but there are a few places in the city where people enjoy dressing up for Halloween!
I went to Spoonbill, where they decked out the entire restaurant with spine-tingling decorations and eerie music playing all throughout the night! Even the entire staff dressed up as ghouls, and witches! My favorite decorations were the beautifully carved Jack-o-lanterns displayed outside, nothing shouts Halloween like a good Jack-o-Lantern! They really got into the Halloween spirit! Keeping up with the Halloween theme, their food for the night was no where close to normal. The offered a dinner set with Halloween themed dishes! It was less than 500 rupees, so it’s totally affordable!
I think it’s time to bring the Halloween spirit to Chennai as well as all of India because it’s a time where you can be totally out of character and be someone entirely else.
Here is what my Diwali looked like and I hope all of you had a great & safe Diwali this year 🙂
Thanks again to Shyam for his help with getting these beautiful photos! 🙂
This Diwali I decided not to purchase a traditional Indian dress, and wound up with these three beauties instead! The Diwali Festival sales are not to be missed as so many stores have great offers for a bulk buy. I got all these trousers for less than INR 2,000! Which is an incredible deal because usually they go for about INR 1,500 a pop! Talk about saving some money.
Diwali shopping in India is equivalent to that of Boxing Day or Black Friday, good clothes and cheap prices! Of course there’s the off chance you will have the same item of clothing as someone else, but it also depends on how you style your outfits!
Stay tuned for my festive and colorful Diwali post! And I hope everyone have a safe and joyous Diwali!
