A peek inside: The Lil Flea, Mumbai

The Lil Flea

The Lil Flea

As mentioned on their colourful and cute website, The Lil Flea is “an offering of vibrant pop up shops, experimental & street cuisine, workshops, music and of course loads and loads of fun.”

Held periodically in Bandra – Mumbai, this one of a kind flea market invites startups, chefs and artists across various fields with the intention of creating a thriving Art community in Mumbai. This month, the event was held over three days on the 10th, 11th and 12th of April.

One of my favourite creative designers, Pink Whistle Man was also part of this event – with a sweet little stall that displayed their products. To know more about Pink Whistle Man and what they do, check out their website here.

If any of you readers are visiting Mumbai or live in the city – check out The Lil Flea’s website to find out the dates for their next event! Or you can even find them on Facebook.

For the love of Spray Paint

DIY Ashtray/ Pot Holder

I have a newfound  obsession – Spray Paint. This past month brought out a long-time hidden passion of DIY.

A new stationary store had opened near my home and I wasted no time in paying it a visit. Oh the joy of discovering rows and rows of DIY kits and accessories – I. was. mesmerized.

I didn’t want to get too carried away and burn a hole through my wallet – so I picked up a few painting essentials and of course, dull Gold and copper spray paint.

Here’s a quick snapshot of my first project or as I would like to call it,‘’transformation’’.

PS: If any of you readers are Spray Paint pros, please do share your projects with me – would love to feature your work. :)

A sweet and eclectic Mumbai home

When Ranjani Iyengar got married and moved to Mumbai 2 years ago she was faced with the task of designing and styling her brand new home. A task that may seem daunting in many ways to some, became her ‘dream come true’.

Ranjani, a close friend of mine, is one of the most creative souls I have ever met. As founder and owner of a leading creative company, Pink Whistle Man, her sense of style is quirkly, neat and ethnic all mixed in one. This is clearly reflected in her home. Here’s a sneak peek of Ranjani’s lovely and vibrant home.

To New Beginnings

Hello Dear Readers,

I hope you all had a great start to 2015. I’ve had a fabulous time so far. :)

I am so excited to share that I will be starting an all new Home Tours section for LifeLoveDecor. Those who know me well, know that I am obsessed with houses, and all things decor. Having seen beautiful homes on blogs like Design Sponge and Inside Outside, I have always wanted to share homes that are beautiful to me.

So look out for my new post on Home Tours. I do hope you’ll like it.

Happy New Year!

A Very Merry Christmas

Hello Dear Reader, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas in whatever part of the world you are in.

I for one, had a fabulous Christmas at my Parent’s home in Vellore. This year we had one more addition to our family, our Golden Retriever puppy, Czar. There were many failed attempts at dressing him up in a Santa Hat and Reindeer Ears – Hopefully he’ll come around next year. :)

The best part of Christmas for me, is spending time with the family and we always have the most fun during a meal, around the table. I am still stuffing my face with my mother’s delicious Christmas Cake (a traditional Portuguese recipe).

So, just popping in to wish you all a wonderful Christmas – one filled with Love & Peace. :)
