“The legend of Anarkali – the beautiful courtesan who seduced the Mughal Prince Saleem only to be entombed alive in a wall for her transgression by Salim’s father, Emperor Akbar. The history of Anarkali, that heaving, bustling maze of congested streets and tiny shops located outside the Lohari Gate, can be traced back to colonial times. 

Lahore’s oldest surviving bazaar was once the center of culture and style; and remains a popular shopping destination even today… Vibrant and chaotic, Anarkali Bazaar embodies Lahore’s spirit of grandeur, contradictions and co-existence. Amongst shops selling everything from stationery to hand embroidered khussas to fresh nimbo paani, you’ll spot architectural styles derived from the various eras to have shaped the city’s cultural ethos – from Mughal to Sikh to British” -Destinations Magazine


Oh June. You’ve been bad news ever since you arrived. But yesterday evening at the park was a welcome change, in on again-off again showers and the company of old friends and new. I’d been wanting to wear this ASOS dress ever since it arrived, along with my new sandals which I eventually drenched in a puddle. Mostly, I’m relieved that Bangalore seems to have gotten it’s weather back, at least for a while.

Natasha and Sandeep (Hindu Wedding) || USA 

One of the most beautiful weddings I have seen in a while with so many fun dances. The bride looked so pretty at all her events and I loved how her and the groom matched in pastel pink on their wedding day.
