An Afternoon of Exploration in New York

Don’t forget to enter the #FPBFF Contest for your chance to explore the Big Apple!

This post comes from our blog intern, Monica!

New York City is unlike any other place I’ve ever been. It exudes such an inspiring energy that seems to bounce between the corridors of buildings, through each avenue and street, and from every person I pass along the way. It was such a pleasure to share this energy with one of my closest friends this past weekend. With an afternoon to spare, Cami and I took the city by storm, seeing some of the most iconic places in the Big Apple. From Times Square to the Brooklyn Bridge, the island of Manhantan is chock full of places to explore. One thing I love about Cami is her sense of adventure. We see the world similarly yet differently, and she opens my eyes with her unique perspectives.

Our friends help make us who we are, they inspire us to be better, they support us through thick and thin. From providing a shoulder to cry on, a good laugh at anything and everything, or even being a side-kick for an afternoon of exploration, that’s what these close-knit friendships are for.

Indian Bridal Lehengas I would Love to Wear

Im obsessed with those colors- sky blue and mustard!! I love the neckline , and i love the back.. Its actually a creation by a Pakistani Designer , but i just love how those colors work with each other! Obsessed! But much too expensive for me im sure

Another creation by those talented Paki designers…Would love to wear that lehenga for my Sangeet !! Sigh!!! My outfit looks so light and dull in comparison to this :( Me need more money to spend on pretty clothes!!!

I have no idea what the whole lehenga looks like, but i saw this photograph and i absolutely adored the detail in it! I love the little frill at the hem!

All three outfits (peach lehenga in first pic) and the bottom two are designed by ECRU (Ankur Batra) who is the most sought after coutourier in Delhi. If you are wondering why you havent heard his name its because you cant just buy an ECRU , you earn an ECRU. Im serious, he is extremely picky about the brides he works with, he can straight out refuse to work for you and getting an appointment is next to impossible. I didnt even try because the prices are pretty impossible too .

I love how that lehenga skirt just blooms out from under the dupatta and the colors are SO SO pretty!Gorgeous!!!

Im partial to Peach and to Suneet Verma and the picture above combines both of those!

Those are actually the colors of my lehenga- indigo blue and red and cream!!!! <3

The Layers. Ooff!.

Thats an Anand Kabra White Lehenga with gold work. I love how simple yet stunning it is. So pure, but my family woul freak if i wore white on the wedding. Actually theyr already freaking that im wearing grey.

Ritu Kumar Bridal Lehenga- if you are having a MEGA wedding and need to look like a very heavily adorned princess, this would be perfect.

A Visual Guide to Ayurveda

Ayurveda is perhaps the oldest science of life, a system of diet, healing, and health maintenance that is deeply spiritual in origin.

Story by yoga teacher Lis Cancio and photographer Sidney Bensimon.

Ayurveda is perhaps the oldest science of life, a system of diet, healing, and health maintenance that is deeply spiritual in origin.

Ayurveda, translating from Sanskrit to “life knowledge”, was originally developed in the Vedic period in India. As the weather changes and gets warmer, we can help our bodies find balance and deepen our practice with some ayurvedic tips that cool down the body and relax the mind.

Drinking hot water with herbal tea helps with digestion and getting rid of Vata in the body. Adding aloe vera gel, lemon and raw honey makes for a delicious and satisfying cooling drink.

Staying away from caffeine, especially in a warmer climate, is suggested.

Be in nature as much as possible as it relaxes the nervous system and helps you connect with your environment.

Walking Pranayam for 20-30 minutes after a meal helps with digestion and also helps cut the acid that is produced in the muscles. On your walk, put your attention on your breath, taking deep breaths in and deep breaths out.

Keeping exercises to early mornings and late afternoons is best as the weather gets warmer to not aggravate the pitta characteristic of our bodies, for 30-40 minutes maximum 3 times a week.

If you love juicing, dilute your juice with room temperature water, adding soaked chia seeds or a spoonful of coconut oil. These tricks help for optimum digestion, adding natural fat to help absorb the vitamins as well.

The best time to eat fruit is in the morning and by itself. The body digests fruit very rapidly, taking about 30 minutes.

Asanas in Yoga have special benefits for the mind and body. Here are a few poses that help with digestion and cooling down.

Yoga postures or (asanas) have holistic and healing benefits for the body and mind. The postures below boost digestion by relieving tightness in the abdomen.

Asanas are also beneficial for expanding into your respiratory system, lungs, diaphragm and intercostal muscles. This facilitates clear breathing to enhance detoxification, naturally restoring vitality and lightness to your organs and settling a busy mind. Excellent for when you feel low on energy and stressed. Always be sure to encourage your breath to flow smoothly and freely into sensations for maximum effect!

Supta Virasana – Consider using props like a bolster, pillow or blankets under the spine to relieve pressure in the lower back and knees.

Side Bending – Keep your spine neutral and feet grounded as you lean and open into your waist.

Camatkarasana – This asana is playful, feel your whole spine curve and open as you elevate your heart high.

Practicing meditation has a myriad of benefits for overall health. Meditation has been shown to decrease the stress hormone adrenalin in the body. This has significant effects on dissolving tension, anxiety and normalizing blood pressure. This correlates to better sleep and energy levels to meet the demands of daily life with clarity and creativity.

Waking up before or with the sun is very important. Ayurveda recommends waking up one and a half hours before the sunrise to help the body synchronize with the rhythm of the sun. This time has a beautiful and strong energy, being up can help you carry this energy within you throughout the day.
