Diwali Wishlisting with Shopo

Diwali here, far away from the motherland is quite tame. It involves heading to a friend's place for dinner and some Indian-esque dressing up. Back home, Diwali was a week/ two week long celebration involving lakshmi puja, a week long marriage of tulsi to krishna, gorging on sweets and lots of noise and sparkle. So I promptly agreed when Krithika asked me to come up with a Diwali wishlist from products launched by Shopo exclusively for Diwali. As an NRI, all I can do is dream about an extravagant Diwali, so dream a little with me?

 Diwali is all about....

 An invitation for an evening of celebrations
 L to R: 1, 2 and 3


 An evening brightened by the soft light of candles/ diyas

 L to R: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6


An excuse to dress up: Sigh... This truly is a wishlist. I love sarees, but never get to wear them here.

 L to R: 1 and 2

A bit of sparkle, a bit of bling

L to R: 1, 2, and 3

And of course, an excuse to re-decorate your home!

L to R: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6

Love what you see, head here to Shopo to check out their Diwali offerings.

~ Happy Diwali ~

Hmmm. I saw those saris in a facebook link. They are gorgeous aren't they. We don't get a chance to wear saris here either dear, what with all the other stuff in vogue. Someone suggested that if the sari urge hits, then one should wear it around the house. Haven't tried it yet though.

Happy Diwali!

A friend and I were on this site 2 days ago, sighing and oohing and aahing over all the stuff here. Nice site. The sarees were gorgeous.
