Diwali-cious

Hello my people,
A very Happy Diwali to all :) Its been a mad mad day.(In the good sort of a way of course) Shopping, all the pujas, entertaining the myriad of guests, going to see everybody and give Diwali gifts, done it all. And at the end of the day, the essence of Diwali is about family time and friends. Mission accomplished :) Even though its been a super tiring day, sharing some festive pictures with you is in order. Here are some very Indian, very festive and some very random pictures from today.
That would be me lighting the diyas (earthen lamps) to accentuate my Rangoli(For my international readers, its a form of art where you  draw designs on the floor using colored powder and flowers). And chucking my modesty aside for an instant, it was pretty darn nice :)
My tip for the festive season? Accessorize the hair with a pretty, bright hued flower. A purple orchid in my case.
A picture of my glittery purple floating candles and purple orchids and of course a few drops of Ferragamo's Incanto added to the water for the effect. Perfect :)
Diwali is truly,in every sense of the word the grandest festival of lights.
Like I always say, bring on the festivities :D
XOXO
