When my parents bought a house at Palm Beach Road in Navi Mumbai a decade ago, a lot of people thought they were nuts. Moving away from the suburbs to a newer area was something most people couldn't understand, but my parents were very clear, they needed open spaces and a greener area to live. Pollution free, slum free and clutter free, this area helped them break free from the concrete jungle that Mumbai was turning into. I was a Bandra girl by heart and the move was most difficult for me, but I too agreed to the fact that the quaint lanes, beautiful cottages and gardens no more really existed which originally made us feel special about the place. Bandra had become what you would call an urban mess.

Mumbai doesn't ever have a real winter and rarely do the temperatures drop low, but this year post 5 PM you can already feel a chill in the air. So I am really hoping that this time the temperatures will drop much lower as December and January approach. God willing we will be able to pull out our knits, jackets and scarves to face the real weather and not just for fighting the cold in our office spaces thanks to the central air conditioning systems. For tackling the nip in the air I find sweatshirts most practical, comfortable and stylish and here are the ones I have zeroed down for having in my wardrobe!

Big birthdays need big celebrations and if there can't be a big celebration, then there needs to be a birthday trip! That is exactly what I did for my birthday this year. Took off on a trip to Goa with PS and Aryaa. That way the birthday also got celebrated over multiple days and there were more benefits other than just the birthday gifts ;-)

I first went to Goa when I was nearly 26 (yes that late!) and from then there has been no looking back. With friends, family, PS, and on work, the experiences each time have been different and unforgettable. Goa is my favourite place if I ever want to escape for a mini vacation. Not just anniversaries and birthdays, but I also went for my babymoon to Goa and most of you have read about my experiences as I made it a point to share them with you via the blog or my social media, mainly my outfits. Well the beach style quotient on my blog is going to go a notch higher now as for my next Goa trip, my very own junior fashionista is also accompanying me! Yes, Aryaa is off for her first Goa trip for my upcoming birthday and she too shall experience the calmness of the beaches, the ocean, the super amazing food and the beautiful weather there. She once experienced it when she was in my tummy and now its time she experiences it all for real. :)
Now there are loads of things that you can pack for a beach holiday but there are a few things that you just can't forget (especially with a toddler) and here is my list of must pack items for a Goa (beach) vacation!
