Happy Holidays

Holiday_decor-1Holiday_decor-2Holiday_decor-5I want to say so much – so many stories to tell, so many looks I want to share, so many holiday deals I want you to know. Being home (India) for vacation got crazy and I ended up running around more than I could relax. But its all good –  I am with family…meeting childhood friends. This is  greatest gift one can ever receive! But has it been all play and no work? no … Love Playing Dressup has not been on a break and is stepping into some amazing ventures – I can’t wait to share with you guys =)) The new year has so much in store for all of us – I just know it!

Tonight, we leave on our second backpacking trip. Scared am I? Yes absolutely – excited? Beyond bounds. Although these pages will be taking a break for a few weeks – I promise, I will more than make up for it once I am back =))

In-house Getaway & a Giveaway

Love Playing Dressup _Bathroom DecorMost of you know that we moved in our home about 3 months back. While there are still unopened boxes in the basement and barely any new furniture, we have been decorating a little here and a little there. The house was pretty much move-in ready and as clichéd as it sounds, it’s becoming our home with our touch in every room and corner.

The most under-rated room in the house usually is the bathroom. However, after a long, stressful work day or post toiling in the yard or after a hardcore workout – nothing feels better than having a nice long bath. I wanted to make this small space our own little oasis. Doing nothing too over-the-top and keeping within our style and budget,  feels like having a spa-getaway right here at home.

Lately, I have been very fascinated with monogrammed things and ofcourse I had to get towels with our initials on them ( like I had to with pillows, mugs, gym towels, winter caps ..=)) )  Carolina Clover is one of my favorite stores to get my monogramming/personalization fix. You can never go wrong with fresh flowers and scented candles. These little luxuries go a long way in sprucing up any place. I am also loving the vibe the frames bring to the bath experience – gold-framed reminders to relax and unwind which we all seem to be almost never finding the time for !

I also have a wonderful giveaway today – you can win the same bathroom prints or any of your choice . These will be great additions to your home or you can always cross one gift off your holiday shopping list.Love Playing Dressup _Bathroom Decor12Love Playing Dressup _Bathroom Decor1 Love Playing Dressup _Bathroom Decor3 Love Playing Dressup _Bathroom Decor4 Love Playing Dressup _Bathroom Decor5 Love Playing Dressup _Bathroom Decor6Love Playing Dressup _Bathroom Decor7Love Playing Dressup-10Love Playing Dressup _Bathroom Decor9

Lets talk Party !

Love Playing Dressup -8Just when my secret affair with the warm summer nights had started to become a thing – summer decided to pack its bag and take off ! What a commitment phobic! But we don’t let the ones we love leave so easily, do we? We decided to throw an end-of-summer- housewarming party in one. The fact that our friends were going to come over, really helped, because we finally picked up our lazy (and to be fair – busy!) bones and unpacked the boxes or atleast hid them behind closed closet doors! I knew the weather wasnt going to be on our side for an outdoor party, but that dint stop me from decking up the place – anything in the name of making pretty summer memories – until we meet again next year !Love Playing Dressup -1Love Playing Dressup -4Love Playing Dressup -7Love Playing Dressup -6Love Playing Dressup -10Love Playing Dressup -3Love Playing Dressup -5Love Playing Dressup -9Love Playing Dressup -2
