Easy Summer Hairstyles

This is a guest post under the series : Playing Dressup on a Budget 

Perfect FishtailHere in the Pacific Northwest, warm weather means outdoor activities – everything from hiking to exploring local farmer’s markets. I love to work on my tan while I paddle board across the little lake near my house, and I’m finally taking up hiking so I can explore the beautiful mountains near my hometown. There’s something so wonderful about revisiting where you grew up, especially with the light and laughter that summer brings with it.

Have you ever been  so excited about something so much that once you have it, you want to enjoy it one bit at a time so you can savor every moment but also so quickly for the fear that the moment might end? I have been feeling like that lately about the warm weather that is finally breaking in. Summer is officially here in Boston and it has got me all kinds of excited. We finally opened our pool over the weekend & if you are following me on sanpchat ( @lovenehagandhi),

Lets make a difference

RuleI had a completely different post planned for today – but instead I wanted to use this space for something else. Seeing all those heart wrenching images and listening to the reports and interviews from Nepal is breaking my heart.  Amit & I also started looking into if we can fly there and be of any help. I just want to do something!

Even if  I am able to speak to you one of you through this post – then that makes it two of us. While we cannot all go down there, help clear the rubble and personally bring food and water to the people affected – let’s try to do something – no matter how little – from where we are. Lets say – if you get coffee from your favorite coffee shop every morning on your way to work – if you can just give that up a day – that’s a BIG $3. It adds up and will go a long way!

I am also thinking of an idea in which we can do something to help. I know so many who want to do something but dont know how. They are still in my head and am hoping that we can make it a reality. Nothing would make me more happy than knowing I am not alone and that you also believe that WE can make a difference. – Neha
