Friday Finds

So good news first! I've officially handed in my dissertation! I do feel a sense of relief but I will be more relieved once I have my mark back for it.  Writing this dissertation has left me really burnt out, so I think I'm going to take the last few weeks of summer to try and relax.  The bad(ish) news, the renovations aren't entirely over yet! But we are starting to finally see an end to them and have started to move back into our kitchen (hence we have been a little MIA on here, sorry!) But in the meantime here are some friday finds, enjoy:

1. Leonardo Dicaprio does the ALS ice bucket challenge with the Fort Chipewyan First Nations in Alberta for an enviromental cause and raise awareness of the effects of the Alberta tar sands and the best part is he called out heads of major oil companies and the Prime Minister of Canada, Stephen Harper!
2. Calling all Alia Bhatt fans (or just people who like their dose of celebrities being able to make fun of themselves)! All India Bakchod teamed up--yet again-- with Alia Bhatt to take a dig at the actress' IQ level that made headlines after the she appeared on Koffee with Karan naming the wrong name for India's President, here is "Genius of the Year" for a good laugh!
3. On August 24th, Vesuvius marked its anniversary for its eruption that left Pompeii in the shape it is today. This Ted talk explored the fantasy that archaeology has created of Pompeii and asks how much of what we know of Pompeii is what we project on to it from our own time?
4. This is a great campaign in India breaking stereotypes: Breaking Stereotypes 

5. Lastly, we're now at the point in our renovations where we get to look at decorative items like  the fun stuff, pillows: throws, arm chairs, sculptures etc.
We both are big believers in a lot of Buddhism's philosophies but did not want to be a part of the exploitative part of western design and fashion so we felt that everything we included in our interior design needed to come from our own real life and experience and not from a pretentious and artificial level. The sleeping Buddha is one of our favourite stories from growing up and learning of Buddha's meditations and the Mucalinda. So here are our two that we are deciding between  sleeping buddha one and  sleeping buddha two 

p.s. We appreciate all the lovely comments about our Lakme Fashion Week blog post. It's great to  be able to introduce some of you to the wonderful world of fashion in India.
