Namaste Friends,

Diwali season is upon us! How exciting right? I know I am! Ever since I got married I felt the need to start my own Diwali traditions just like my mom had her own for us. It was overwhelming at first well because I felt like where do I start? Or what do I get my kids for Diwali? Well, I’ve got your covered my friends. Isn’t it amazing that in the last 7 years how many small businesses have grown especially in the South Asian Community. Brands that are there to spark curiosity in our culture in small ways. Fashion has been made easier for us to not buy expensive Indian clothing but rather rent when you need it. And businesses that remind us of home with a hot cup of Chai or the beautiful smell of jasmine through candles. I believe it’s an amazing time for the South Asian Community to support and continue to shine on.

Below I got you covered with Gifts, Fashion & More. Get ready for an amazing Diwali Season!
