Princess Mits gets ready.

The problem with an early morning wedding is that it’s early. *yawn* Getting ready takes a LOT of time and effort so you have to get it done right! Watching the most talented make up artist Amanender and his wife Kapila do their magic on the most beautiful bride was totally worth it. Loads of lovely light streaming in through the windows, pots of coffee and a few PJs (poor jokes) really made the morning memorable. Oh, and the fact that Anandita (aka Princess Mits) was getting married!!! 

So, here you go-some of the photos from that morning.2013-09-10_0001 AA_0051AA_0042 AA_0043 AA_0044 AA_0046 AA_0052 AA_0053 AA_0055 AA_0054 AA_0059 AA_0060 AA_0061 AA_0062AA_0045 AA_0063 AA_0056 AA_0064 AA_0066 AA_0067 AA_0068 AA_0069 AA_0071 AA_0072 AA_0073AA_0047 AA_0075 AA_0076 AA_0077 AA_0078 AA_0079 AA_0080 AA_0081 AA_0082 AA_0083 AA_0084 AA_0086 AA_0070All photos are copyright of Kismet Jewell Nakai © 2013 so please no stealing or using without permission.

Good Ideas by Maya

The festive season is in full swing now with Diwali about a week away and the endless number of weddings and other festivals like Dussehra , Karvachauth punctuating the days. This time of year in India is like Christmas in other parts of the world- everything is decked up with lights ,the shops are open till late, and there are endless parties to attend! It’s fun but my favourite part of this time of year aren’t the festivals but the weather! The temperature dips,and we can prepare ourselves for our short (and severe) winter season. Yup, cannot wait to eat those lunches out in the garden while soaking in the sun.

We have a  special Diwali post up today. Maya has been on our blog a long long time ago so we are happy to have her here again. As I had mentioned in this previous post, Maya is über talented and creative. Her photographs are brilliant and I love her Good Ideas!

Here is a short note from Maya-

I love receiving and sending letters  –  the handwriting and the stamps on the envelopes and finding the right smooth, thick, crunchy pen –  all of that good stuff. And I think theres something about old fashioned notecards and stationery that online greetings just can’t replace. And when they’re hand-made, you know theres a little bit of the artist in every card. I love the idea of spending time over every design and every piece i make, as opposed to buying the mass-produced cards available in the shops. I’ve been making stationery and cards for about a year now, and this year I thought I’d do something festive for diwali.
So, this diwali send out these exclusive handmade cards.

Each card is uniquely fashioned with a diya design made with different prints, and a lovely festive border. sold individually and in packs of 2, and 5 with envelopes.

I agree with Maya completely, there is nothing that compares to a hand-written note -online cards just seem so disposable! How do you save a card you get online? Print it? What’s the fun in that!

If you want to get in touch with Maya to buy her hand made Diwali cards, you can send her an email at or just write to us at and we will put you in touch with her. 

We are super busy and if we don’t get to post before Diwali (though I hope to)- have a happy and safe Diwali. Take it easy on the firecrackers though-think of the poor dogs!xx
