Chandigarh Rose Garden

Hi everyone!
How are you doing?
I’m doing great and at the moment I’m in India!
India is totally different from what I had thought that it would be like. I had traveled to India via Holland from my country Suriname, so I also saw a little bit of the Netherlands.
The trip was exhausting, cause I hadn’t slept well in the planes and my ears were pretty much hurting 10 minutes before landing. When I got out of the airport, I was like wow, this city looks more modern then Holland, that’s something I hadn’t expected. It took me a few hours before I could hear normally.

I’ve visited different cities in India and they are all different from each other. I’ll start with Chandigarh. Chandigarh is said to be the cleanest city of India and the city plan was designed by the French architect Le Corbusier.

The thing that struck me at first was that there were lots of cyclists; in my country you’ll find more cars than cycles. You’ll also find lots of scooters in Chandigarh.

Chandigarh is the greenest city of India. Flowers grow pretty well compared to my country. Chandigarh is divided in 65 sectors. The sectors are separated by beautiful round parks, which is taken care of daily. I have taken lots of pictures of the parks out here. Below is a picture of a park that divides 4 different sectors.
This is one park, but the pictures are taken from different sides.

One of the flower places I’m in love with is Rose Garden. It’s a big park of 27 acres with lots of different roses in lots of different colors.





At first I had to get used to the food out here; but now I’m starting to like Indian food.
This is a picture taken in one of the bakeries in Chandigarh. I’m definitely going to try some of these very soon; they look yum.

I’ve made lots of friends out here from all over the world; it’s definitely a very great experience.


That was it for today’s post about India. Will be back soon with more about Chandigarh!

Some of my latest buys

Hi everyone!
I have been absent from here for quite a long time. It was high time for a new post. With the pressure at work I wasn’t in a mood of blogging. I’m free for a while so I have lots of time to blog and entertain you guys.  I’ll share some of my latest buys today.
I had ordered some Avon items about which I am blogging about today.

No. 1 is my Breast Cancer Ribbon Scarf which I really wanted. I have a strapless dress, but I find it a bit too revealing, so I thought of combining it with a shawl. I like the silky feel of this polyester shawl. It’s 36" x 36"; I wish that it was a bit longer, but it looks great paired with my pink dress. Hope I can get some pictures taken to share with you guys when I wear my pink dress. ;)    
                                 My score: an 8.5 out of 10

No. 2 is my Mark. SPF 15 Color Shine Lipstick in Ginger Snap. It’s a nice shiny color and my lips feel soft and moisturized. I also like its magnetic closure which “clicks” closed every time. Can't seem to get the picture in it's original angle; sorry about that.
My score: an 8.5 out of 10

No. 3 is my Ankle Wrap Espadrille Wedge. It’s made of faux-suede and has a jute upper and wedge. The heel is 3 3/4 " high. I actually don’t always feel comfortable in high heels, but these are just perfect, though I had to create an extra hole for the straps. Feels great wearing them.
My score: a 9 out of 10.

No. 4 is my Disney Mickey Mouse Silhouette Watch. I’ve been wanting this watch for a very long time. I was very happy when I received this watch; can’t wait to wear it. It has a genuine mother-of-pearl dial and it’s as pretty as I had expected it to be; I absolutely love it! It’s for wrists varying from 6 ½ - 6 ¾ " and it has a 1" extender. It’s a bit too big for me, but I’ll have a few of the mickey mouse links removed by a jeweler.

 My score: a 9.5 out of 10

That was my post of sharing my latest buys. Wish me lots of wealth so I can share lots more buys with you guys…haha…lolz. See ya next time!

Photo Shoot with Flamboyant Media

Hi everyone!
How are you all doing?
I’m good and I’m back with a new blog post after a very long time.
I recently did a photo shoot with the photographer from Flamboyant Media which I am sharing with you all today. How do I look in a saree? My mom had quickly draped it for me. The aanchal part should have been on my left shoulder actually.

The photographer is pretty good in this profession. If you live in Suriname or in Holland and you need a photographer for your wedding, birthday party etc. or just for a photo shoot you’ll know where to be.;) You can view more of his pictures at

Wishing you all a great week ahead!
I am extending my MMS scrapbooking software giveaway till the 28th of February, so you still have a change to participate at
