The lovely Jess from Foxx Foto was at the India Mela over the weekend and she captured a couple of photos of me and my mother-in-law. I love how they came out, so smiley!
Jess is absolutely great.. she did our engagement photo shoot last year as well as our wedding reception earlier this year – and I love every single photo she took! She has this amazing ability to catch the really special moments!
Amika Kushwaha -beautiful Kathak teacher and my current teacher. Cassius Khan Jawani Bhangra Lyrical Contemporary South Asian Academy of Fine ArtsM and I went to the 9th Annual Sawan Mela this weekend, at Jack Poole Plaza, Canada Place which was held by the South Asian Family Association. It was a great day, filled with amazing performances, music and a lively atmosphere.
The performances were all afternoon, and we got to see some of the amazing talent from local artists. Saturday evening ended with an outdoor showing of a Bollywood movie. It was so much fun… the backdrop for the screen was amazing, with the mountains and water in view.. plus sitting under the stars curled up in blankets was such a great way to spend a summer’s night.
I thoroughly enjoyed the day.. definitley one of the best we’ve had all summer!
Another converse/shorts combination from me.. but well, I needed to be comfortable as we were on our feet all day.. plus I love these polka dots shorts.. they are just too cute! I can’t wait to dress them up a bit, with a pretty blouse and heels!
I hope you are all having a great week!

P.S. Check out Outdoor Movies BC for outdoor movie events everyday during the summer.. they are awesome.
P.P.S. Like my new header? Felt like a change..
So some of you might know that I recently moved to Vancouver in January of this year…. and since then, I’ve kind of been
waiting around.. trying to keep myself as busy as possible, until my permanent residency for Canada was approved, so that I can finally get a job and start working etc etc
ANDD.. yesterday morning, M got the phone call to say the final process of the application needs to be completed.. in other words, I’ve pretty much been approved! I have been waiting for this day for so long now, that part of me doesn’t believe it’s actually true.
It’s still unofficial.. as I have now submitted my passport to complete the process.. but it does mean that I am one step to closer to living out my dream… I am super super excited!
Last night we were meant to go out and celebrate this good news, however unfortunately I have this awfully painful kink in my neck.. which ended up delaying our full blown celebrations for a while.. instead we went out for a casual yet scrumptious pub dinner.. a few photos of that to come shortly.
I’d like to thank my family and friends who have supported me during this process, especially M… and put up with my frustrated mood swings!
I hope you are all having a a great week… and that everyone single one of you receives some good news too!
P.S. I used a pretty old photo of me in this post… and I think I might be starting to miss my long hair..maybe it’s time to grow it out again, what do you think?
Apologies for the silence… the last few days have been a bit crazy, and I haven’t really had the chance to sit down and play catch up!
I had a truly lovely weekend away on Salt Spring Island… it was relaxing and tiring all at the same time! We stayed at the Salt Spring Spa Resort.. where they have these fabulous A-shaped chalets! (check out the website to see what I mean). We spent Saturday afternoon relaxing in the spa and walking around the market on the island… and Sunday we went kayaking – which was awesome, but also very tiring!
I leave you with two photos of my weekend, the first is the view we have from our apartment and the sun rising at 5am on Saturday morning (we had to get up very early to catch the ferry) and the second was actually taken on the ferry ride back home on Sunday.
I hope you all had a beautiful weekend and are having an even more beautiful week!
