Valentine's Day this year was extra special, as Schwarzkopf Professional India planned a Valentine's Day special date with my hair to shower it with some TLC, and you guys can guess after having known me for so long, that I would have opted for pampering my hair with some fresh hair colour, cause there is nothing more that I and my hair love, than some fresh colour and a new look!

Technology is slowly but steadily taking over most of the work that humans do manually and it's not funny how with just a few clicks on our smartphones we run major parts of our lives. I was born in the times when mobile phones never existed and I have witnessed to the entire change, from landlines in the house to mobile technology, to the smartphone technology that has now become so necessary to cater to our needs, that we feel helpless if we are asked to live without it even for a day. India alongside has also progressed and uplifted the society norms, but something that is yet unchanged is the need for a maid in every Indian household.

Love is not about that one day in the year and one person only, it is about daily acts of caring, sharing and warmth with people that matter to you. Hence I do not believe in the commercial concept of Valentine’s Day, but the actual concept that it is the day of love. So while PS and I don't need that one day in a year to display our affection for each other for everyone to see, it is a day that we try to spend quality time together as a family and with people that we love. Aryaa has become a part of our lives for the last couple of years and in our own ways we are trying to get her to understand what love's all about!

Sunday morning when I woke up and switched on my phone, I was greeted by the most beautiful and yummy looking Valentine's cake on Facebook. I follow a lot of cooking pages, so for a minute, I thought it was a picture from one of those until I saw that one of my cousins had actually baked that gorgeous looking cake and documented all the steps. Knowing that it had to be shared with you guys, I pinged her the next moment to share the recipe with me so that I could share it on the blog, and she instantly obliged. She has done a wonderful job on her first blog post, pictures and all and I am thrilled to be sharing Ashmita's Valentine's cake recipe with you guys.

The lehenga is an irreplaceable part of any Indian wedding. I can't survive any wedding without donning one. Over the years I have experimented with different styles and the variation I am currently loving is the Gown Lehenga. The Gown Lehenga is a trendy variation of the traditional lehenga where the short choli has been replaced by a long kalidar kurta. I think it looks pretty and is the perfect combination of Indian and Western aesthetics.
