Urban Kitchen with Granite Tops, Exposed Bulb Lights and Island

We woke reasonably late following the feast and free flowing wine the night before. After gathering ourselves and our packs, we headed down to our homestay family’s small dining room for breakfast.

Refreshingly, what was expected of her was the same thing that was expected of Lara Stone: to take a beautiful picture.

We were making our way to the Rila Mountains, where we were visiting the Rila Monastery where we enjoyed scrambled eggs, toast, mekitsi, local jam and peppermint tea.

We wandered the site with busloads of other tourists, yet strangely the place did not seem crowded. I’m not sure if it was the sheer size of the place, or whether the masses congregated in one area and didn’t venture far from the main church, but I didn’t feel overwhelmed by tourists in the monastery.

Headed over Lions Bridge and made our way to the Sofia Synagogue, then sheltered in the Central Market Hall until the recurrent (but short-lived) mid-afternoon rain passed.

Feeling refreshed after an espresso, we walked a short distance to the small but welcoming Banya Bashi Mosque, then descended into the ancient Serdica complex.

We were exhausted after a long day of travel, so we headed back to the hotel and crashed.

I had low expectations about Sofia as a city, but after the walking tour I absolutely loved the place. This was an easy city to navigate, and it was a beautiful city – despite its ugly, staunch and stolid communist-built surrounds. Sofia has a very average facade as you enter the city, but once you lose yourself in the old town area, everything changes.

IF YOU HAVE IT, YOU CAN MAKE ANYTHING LOOK GOOD

Clothes can transform your mood and confidence. Fashion moves so quickly that, unless you have a strong point of view, you can lose integrity. I like to be real. I don’t like things to be staged or fussy. I think I’d go mad if I didn’t have a place to escape to. You have to stay true to your heritage, that’s what your brand is about.

10 Easy Homemade Halloween Costumes & Fancy dress ideas for Kids

0

Yes, I know Halloween is not an Indian festival but hey the world is shrinking and I know that many schools including my daughter’s are celebrating Halloween. Well, if US and UK can celebrate Diwali then I am sure we can get in on the Halloween spirit too. In India though we are not big on the Halloween customs like trick or treating, decorating our homes as haunted houses and dressing our kids like Zombies.  But all parents are on lookout for easy costumes for kids or as we like to call it in India, Fancy dress ideas for kids.

Fancy dress competitions are an occupational hazard of parenting and whether you like it or not your kids will take part in loads of them through the school years. I hate to waste money on buying or even renting the costumes and usually try to make the costumes from what is either already available at home or from stuff that is not very costly.

 So, I thought I will scour the internet and bring for you 10 easy, homemade and frugal Halloween costumes for kids. When I say easy, I literally mean it. These are costumes that don’t require you to be super crafty, buy tons of material or have a whole week to prepare. These are Halloween costumes that you can easily put together at your home with just a few supplies and only a few hours at hand. The best part about these costume ideas are that you can use them for Halloween or save them to use for the next fancy dress competition in your child’s school.

10 Easy Homemade Halloween Costumes 

From

Skeleton Costume 

Think Halloween and the first thing that comes to your mind are Skeletons and this particular skeleton is easy to make and not creepy at all. Although the tutorial at Instructables uses Freezer Paper to stencil, I think if you have a steady hand you can easily make the bone structure with fabric paint. Just get plain black t-shirt, black leggings and white fabric paint and you have a cutesy skeleton at your hand.

 From

 Jellyfish Costume 

Shruthi from ArtsyCraftsyMom is a genius and this jellyfish costume just proves it. She used an umbrella, white t-shirt, white pants and lots of bubble wrap. The white streamers hanging down just give the whole ocean feeling to this costume. I think it is a great aquatic fancy dress idea.

From

Mummy Costume 

Mummies are not my favorite character but this adorable mummy you would want to keep at home forever. Kim from the thecelebrationshoppe blog created this awesome costume from white pajama, white shirt and lots of strips of cheap white fabric and of course glue.

From

Pirate Costume 

Johnny Depp made pirates cool and this pirate costume will do the same for your kid. Simran from Simzcorner created this costume for her som entirely at home using stuff which was already available to her. She tucked the pants inside the socks to create a polo pants look and used black marker to create the mole and mustache. A bandana and eye patch completed the whole pirate look.

From Red Ted Art

If mummies and skeletons are around can witches be far behind? I love tutu skirts and that is what you need for this dress. Just dress the child in a black tshirt and tutu skirt with black leggings, make a paper hat and hand her a broom for the whole witch vibe.

From

LadyBird Costume 

Tulika for ObsessiveMom has some awesome costumes she has made for her kids but this ladybird costume is what caught my eye the most. Tulika made this for her daughter using a red frock on which she stitched black spots. Wings and a red hairband completed the look.

From

Harry Potter Costume 

Thanks to the book and movie series we have scores of potter fans here in India too and this harry potter costume will definitely be a hit with them. Tracey from Chaospatrol made these for her sons using fabric which she stitched as gowns, used maroon and white mufflers and painted the white portion into mustard, spray painted some two sticks to black and used a pair of old spectacles without glasses. Voila there you have, two mini-potters.

Watermelon/Fruit Costume 

I made this for show and tell of fruits at my daughter’s school. She wanted to be a watermelon so I took two pieces of cardboard cut them in watermelon slice shape, made a neck hole and taped them together at the neckline. Then I simply painted it in red and green colors with black seeds. You can recreate any fruit like mango, apple or even strawberry using the same technique.

From

Bee Costume 

This one is a little elaborate costume since it involves stitching black felt over a yellow tee but I will tell you a shortcut. Use black fabric paint for making the stripes. Make two holes in a black headband and use yellow and black pipe cleaners to create the antennae. Top it all off with two colored foam balls.

From

Sheep Costume 

Ishrath from Wanderingmist made this sheep costume using white t-shirt, shorts, black stockings, a skull cap and lots to cotton balls. She stitched the cotton balls onto the t-shirt and all around the skull cap. She used the black stockings as hands and legs and stitched two pieces of black cloth on the skull cap as ears. Isn’t that a cute sheep!

So here they are the 10 easy, homemade Halloween costumes or fancy dress ideas for your kids, whichever suits you best. If you would like to share a costume that you have made or a dress up you created for your child then share it in the comments below or on our Facebook page

9 Essential Style Tips for Stay at Home Moms

0

Once you become a Mom, many changes take place, but a not so obvious one is your style. And it can’t be helped – new born babies require a lot of maintenance, and you’re lucky if you find time to wash your face!! But that stage too passes and then you have no reason to be wandering around the house in pajamas and messy hair!

 When Moms give up their jobs to become Stay At Home Moms or Work At Home Moms, most of them miss not dressing up for work. The solution is simple – Get Dressed!! If you’re still not convinced, here are some more reasons to ditch those pajamas once you wake up:

 1. Both you and your spouse work hard to maintain your home; but your efforts are probably not as obvious. However, when the two of you get ready together in the morning, it drives home the point that both of you are getting dressed for the day’s work.

 2. When you’re well dressed and groomed, you feel better about yourself, your confidence soars and your creative juices start flowing better. Also you are better prepared for most events like picking up or dropping off the kids, quick trips to the grocery store or receiving sudden guests.

 3. When you take the trouble to dress well and look good, it shows that you care for yourself. Your partner will appreciate it and your kids will learn a valuable lesson about self-esteem.

 4. Research shows that faking a smile even when you’re upset ups the feeling of happiness. Similarly, dressing well even when you’re feeling down will brighten a dull day and make it productive.

         So how does a stay at home Mom add some style to her life? The basics have to be in place first – workout, sleep well and eat right. Go to the salon once a month and get a facial and mani-pedi along with getting your eyebrows done. I don’t dare suggest spas and massages, but if you have the time, go for it!

 9 Essential Style Tips for Stay at Home Moms

1. Well fitting lingerie – Unless your foundation is right, your entire outfit will look misshapen. Get fitted and get good quality stuff – this is not an area to skimp on!!

If you’re going to be doing work that requires a lot of vigorous movement, consider it a workout and wear a sports bra.

2. Comfortable footwear – It’s a good idea to get a nice pair of comfy sandals or shoes exclusively to wear at home, especially if it’s cold or you are prone to foot problems. Get a pair of comfortable plain sandals with a slight wedge heel – in black and beige – to wear for quick errands.

3. Practical and versatile bottoms – Tights and cotton or linen pants are great for pairing with a variety of tops – kurtas, Tshirts or tunics. If going for jeans, soft and stretchy are your best bet, considering comfort and ease of laundry. In ethnic wear, salwars along with harem pants and bright leggings are super comfortable and easy to move and work in.

4. Dresses and skirts – I personally think these are great for summer, since they offer breezy and cool comfort. But they can offer some limitation in movement, especially for household chores like deep cleaning. Also, long skirts and maxis might end up getting too dirty during monsoons.

5. Accessories – Getting dressed at home is a great opportunity to try out various trends that you would be wary of wearing otherwise. It obviously wouldn’t be practical to wear a lot of bracelets and rings when you have work to do, but a pair of small to medium earrings or a simple pendant will help you feel more ‘polished’.

 6. Bags – Be sure to have a good sized bag to hold all your essentials, without being so big as to turn into a dumping ground. Try to make it classy without being too casual like a canvas tote. By avoiding fads like skull prints, you can make it last season after season. Be sure to have some folded cloth bags inside, so you can avoid plastic.

 7. Makeup – You’re going to be at home for most of the day, so do you really need any makeup?? Well, you certainly don’t need all the warpaint, but some kohl and a tinted lip balm is enough to perk you up. Don’t forget the sunscreen, even when you’re indoors!

 8. Household gloves and aprons – When doing chores of any kind, ensure you’re wearing household gloves. It might feel cumbersome at first, but trust me, when you see your hands still soft and smooth after 20 years, you’ll be glad you took the trouble!

 9. Nightwear – Bedtime routines are not just for kids, Moms need them too! Remove makeup, slather on some night cream, hand cream and foot cream as per your needs. Throw out all the sloppy, faded night wear and get some cute sets. And most importantly, please don’t wear your nightwear throughout the day – it looks lazy!! Just as the experts say that using your bed only for sleep will help you snooze better at night, using your night wear only for bed will signal your brain that it’s now bedtime.

 What would be the one style tip you are going to adapt to your stay-at-home mom life? I am definitely going to take the accessorize and hand glove tips very seriously. Tell me in comments your favorite tip.

10 Expert Photography Tips: How to Take Great Photos of your Kids

0

From the moment our kids are born their photographs become our prized possessions. We love to click our little angels at every opportunity we get and preserve these memories forever. Thanks to the latest technological innovations you can now take crystal clear and ethereal kids’ photos even from your cellphone. But high-resolution gadgets and latest gizmos aside, it is not an easy task to capture the beautiful moments of your kids’ lives, partly because they don’t stay still enough for that and partly because you don’t know the tips and tricks for photographing your children.

10 expert photography tips to take great photos of Kids

 Lighting

This is probably the most important tip that all the photographers had to give. Peekaboo says lighting is what differentiates a good photo from a great photo. Newborn babies have very sensitive eyes and you do not want to startle them with a flash. You should use all-natural sunlight, so select a room which has an abundance of lighting.

Gursimran agrees to say that this would often mean taking pictures in the morning or early evening when the sun is still benevolent but not strong enough to add to the heat. Nothing contests natural light in how it bathes a child’s cherubic cheeks and adds just the right warm hue to the picture.

Siddhi says that if you can get the child to stand by a bright window or in the shade under a tree, you will have ample light- a prime setting for a good picture! Direct flash is a complete no-no, as it can create large ugly shadows behind the subject, cause red-eye and most likely get a child/baby startled.

Catch them sleeping 

According to Peekaboo, it is best to photograph newborns when they are sleeping. Newborn babies in this situation are easy to mold and pose. You can snuggle the child until he/ she gets comfortable. Not to mention all babies look super adorable when they are sleeping.

Visualize and Strategize 

Gursimran emphasizes that parents should set up the environment for clicking a photograph and then bring the child to it rather than the other way around. Set up your scene, get them dressed, take a few snapshots without the child to ensure lights and angles before actually putting them in their place. Attention spans on children are quite short so it’s best to have everything set right before they’re even brought in. Always remember that the best shots aren’t the ones with the widest smiles, they’re the ones where your child is just being themselves. 

Get Moving 

For Siddhi, it is important that one should be prepared to run and move around, Kids are movers and they aren’t going to sit still for long! So, let them be! Watch them and be prepared with your camera for the good moments. Photos will usually come out more natural and the joys and expressions will be more clearly highlighted as ‘children in their own world’.

Close-ups

Peekaboo

feels that focusing on the smaller details of the baby will help you get those beautiful features which can be overlooked. A lot of parents often try to take the whole baby thinking they want every piece of the baby. But sometimes just focusing on those details will help you get a beautiful picture.

Don’t Forget You

Children are the absolute happiest with their parent especially mothers according to Gursimran and so don’t forget yourself in the pictures you so dedicatedly click for your child. What do you think will make a better picture – You sitting across from your child asking them to smile OR mamma blowing raspberries on their little tummies. Learn the art of self-timers or invest in a wireless remote and stay propped with your child as the camera captures the most endearing moments of parenthood. Pick complementary colors for your clothes, try having as little distraction in the background and just bask in being the highlight of the frame.

Keep it Simple Silly 

Siddhi is of the firm opinion that a simple foreground and background makes for great pictures. Too many props, a cluttered environment takes the focus away from the child who should be the star of the show. Avoid having something vertical behind them that will look like as if it’s getting out from their head.

Now that you have heard the expert speak, here are three bonus tips from me (I am no expert but as chief photographer for my daughter,  I sure have learned on the job.)

Get down to their level

If you want to see the kids’ perspective then you better get on their level. So go on your knees, hands or lie on your tummy to click pictures that are truly special and lovely.

Play Dress Up

Kids especially toddlers love to dress up. Let them wear something that they don’t usually like a tutu, a princess costume or a pirate dress and you will find natural, genuine and smiling expressions from them. If your child has a favorite headband or a favorite jacket let them wear that and they will be more comfortable for picture-taking.

Snap, Snap, Snap

Lastly, don’t give up taking a picture, always have a camera handy and use every opportunity to capture a smile, laughter or mischief. Because they won’t be kids forever. These pictures are the cherished memory capsules that your kids and you will love to look back at again and again. And finally here is one of my favorite shots of my daughter.
