Earth Day Resolutions



Happy Earth Day everyone! It’s sunny in Mumbai today and the trees decided t oexplode with blooms and leaves this weekend. They’re the perfect reminder of how lucky we are to have the nature around each of us- and how important it is to take care of nature. To celebrate Earth Day I’m starting the day with the results of last year’s D*S  Instagram challenge winners... I know a bit too old, but some truths remain the same ! There were hundreds of submissions and in addition to being impressed with how beautiful they all were, I’m so inspired by all of the ideas people from all around the world shared with them for being a little greener. I hope you’ll find their green resolutions inspiring and perhaps try a few of them yourselves.

30 WAYS TO DECORATE WITH MIRRORS

DESIGNSPONGEMIRRORS
Mirror Mirror on the wall... who is the fairest of them all ?? As a little girl not only did I love looking into the mirror hours on end, but it was my favourite game to play DRESS UP. I dont know how many times I would have wrapped a Sari Around me before I grew up and actually got so bored of it - that Now the thought of wearing a saree wears me off !!

But Mirrors are an essential thing. I feel a mirror is a must in every elevator - where you have your own personal moment of checking if the basics are in place. Or maybe outside a home - right before you enter so that you dont walk into an important conversation with the Oregano stuck in your tooth. Everyone knows you enjoyed a slice of Warm Pizza right before. Or in my new home - where I can have a long hard last look at myself before I face a new day and a new challenge. Design Sponge ran a Mirror Contest - and clearly - the entries are stupendous. Look at all the ways the mirror has been used in people's home. Lets take a sneak peak.
