WIW: Diwali

Happy Diwali to all of you!

For those of you who don't know what Diwali is, it's the Indian festival of lights, one of our largest and beautiful festivals. On this day, we wear new clothes, eat home made sweets, exchange gifts with friends and family and light clay lamps to welcome Lakshmi, the Goddess of wealth and prosperity into our homes. So with my wishes, may you all be blessed with prosperity and happiness :)

And here's what I wore to celebrate this festival - a new kurta and churidar that I bought in India, plus a mix of gold and 'junk' jewelry. This was warm enough for indoors but when I went out, I just threw on my coat and a bulky scarf - surprisingly I was quite warm and snug :)

Now I'm off to do some work in the kitchen, I'm cooking a special meal for hubs and myself!

P.S. Angie, do these count as gelato colours? :D
