My birthday month!
And that entitles me to do whattteverrr I want to do, man! (You'd know what I am talking about if you have seen Salman Khan in Bigg Boss). This means that I have the liberty to go completely off the track and do random posts. Long-due posts. Much-awaited posts. From-the-past posts. And just about anything-under-the-sun posts. Not that I cannot do it otherwise but the tag 'Because It's November' is like extra cheese on my pizza.
If you still haven't got the idea, let me put it straight- November is mostly gonna be 'Publish what's in the Drafts' month and remember, you cannot question why the post feels stale and the pictures look old...Because It's November!
I had quite a few contending posts in the draft to select from, some a few months old while others dated further back but I thought of walking in the reverse order, starting with the latest.
After letting out the secret of 'What I prayed for this Diwali', here are some pictures for y'all.
Did anybody say-'Too late'? Take it back... Because It's November!
Rangoli is my favorite part of Diwali. Remember I told you about it here?
This year I decided to add some twist to rangoli.
Instead of the regular rangoli powder, I colored rice and pulses and along with some semolina (sooji) decorated the entrance of the house.
Covered some tea light candles with the same colored rice and pulses to use for the center piece.
Like always, the ticking of the clock was completely ignored while making rangoli and I had to rush for other things towards the end, which led to a quick Puja set-up.
What's festival without a tray of sweets.
And what's Diwali without lights & lamps and smiles & sparklers....
Hope you all had a wonderful Diwali and a fun Halloween. Share your posts with me and a bunch of other fabulous bloggers in the party below.

Glitter looks awesome in crafts, fashion & every girly thing. I am not mostly comfortable with my long nails but whenever they are long, I like wearing any color on my nails. Although I am a fan of nail art & everything related manicure but I RARELY do it for my own nails, You will may be curious to know WHY..but seriously I don’t like it much for my own nails.As I have already a bit pinkish nail color so I never mind without painting nails. haha.. a good excuse..

The expression, “to live within your means” gets thrown around a lot, but what does it really mean?
If your “means” is your income, then it could encompass everyone from people just getting by each month, to those who have substantial savings.
ShareASale is basically a bridge between bloggers and sponsors. Affiliates (bloggers) and Merchants (sponsors) create accounts. Affiliates send requests to Merchants, asking to join their program, and Merchants choose to approve or deny.
One of my favourite and essential skin care items is facial oil.
My skin is normally combination/oily. But it’s winter and I don’t have the funds to go on a tropical vacation, so my skin is super dry and dehydrated.
Enter facial oil.
Today’s is a tough subject and I am preaching to ME! You all are welcome to listen in…
This isn’t just about gossip, although gossip is a huge problem.
This isn’t just about talking behind our brother or sister’s back, but that is wrong too. We all are guilty.
I’m not just touching on the subject of “Oh, let me tell you about ‘Jim and Judy’ so you can ‘pray’ for them…”, when the time spent telling the prayer request could have been spent actually praying. Ouch.
Hi everyone! Thank you for visiting my blog. I’ve been working on this story for a while now. I was supposed to post the first installment of this short series two weeks ago but the story took on a life of its own. It’s finally done and it’s a little longer than I had anticipated. So I will be posting three times a week until the end. I hope you will follow the series all the way through. I appreciate any feedback you leave in the comments below. Thank you and enjoy.
I love to share baked goods and sweet homemade treats during the holidays. They make beautiful gifts and can be easily packaged and shared with plenty of family and friends throughout the season.
So here at the Smith House, it’s all about holiday truffles and bonbons!
And over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing all sorts of fun recipes, gift ideas, and ways to share your own beautiful homemade treats.
When do you decorate for Fall? Do you decorate for a general Fall theme or do you change it up for Halloween and Thanksgiving? Most of my decor for Fall is of pumpkins and leaves and I add the color orange to my decor colors. Majority of my Fall decor is from my Mother-in-law. Each year, I like to change up my decor little bit from the year before. Plus I like to add to my Fall decor collection.

This coconut pie crust recipe is soooo easy; it looks amazing when served and tastes amazing, too. It has only two ingredients (magical words, right?).
As we prepare for sweet family times of Thanksgiving around the dinner table, I decided to think ahead about the pies I might want to make. To make a very pretty pie and to save some time for myself as well, I decided to do several pies this year with a coconut pie crust. This low carb, gluten-free crust will be helpful for family and friends watching ingredients, as well.
You can add your family monogram to an entire set or personalize one with the first initial of each guest at your table, using them like a place card, and then a pretty keepsake to take home that can be used in other ways. You can make up a half dozen in less than 30 minutes and make a big impression on your guests.
