NEW LAUNCH OF OHW

Hi Guys, I have been wanting this for a pretty long time!

Yes, the makeover of Our Happy World (OHW) !!!

The reason is simple-

Everything had to look like a brand, I wanted whenever someone visits any social media of the OHW, they should know its OHW by just looking at it !

I love it when the bloggers work on a constant look throughout their blogs… it is hard to achieve, although not hard enough, but surely requires a concentrated effort in the same direction always.

My lessons in Business & Marketing also taught me the same…. have the same branding across… well, yes we can all agree it is Branding.. although not in its entirety, but a part of it…

So yes, that is the reason why I wanted to blog about this, is that I wanted to let you all know…. the Pink Owl is there and if you find the pink owl, consider reading OHW!

FOR THOSE OF YOU WITH QUESTIONS ABOUT MY BLOG, I HAVE TRIED TO ANSWER A FEW HERE

What platform I use for Blogging?

I am currently using WordPress as my platform.

Which theme do I use?

I use Germaine theme, but I have customized it drastically.

Why do I blog?

Initially it just started as a hobby or a way of passing time, but within a couple of weeks I fell in love with it. I love writing and that is what made me take this seriously.

What is your blog about?

Our Happy World is my take on happy moments. I love get togethers, gatherings, occasions, celebrations, weddings, birthdays, festivals…. yes I am the one high on holiday cheer! Therefore, I have started writing all about creating the best version of these events. Any way, in which these events can bring a little joy and a smile to the ones reading it and the ones on the receiving end.

What does the PINK OWL stand for?

The pink owl is a symbol of creativity in recreating happy moments.

Where can we find more about your blog?

Our Happy World is currently in its startup stage- it is present with an Instagram account andFacebook page. You can see it here.

Anyways, I am done with the questions, if there is anything else, let me know on – click here.

Till then, ta – ta

Have a happy day

Sending you all happiness….

USING PANTRY ORGANIZATION SKILLS

So I just did my Pantry because, yes we get to that stage when we an never find anything in there and most of the things that we dig out are expired. For me, it was both. It was a mess. And a mess so big that I did not even want to take a picture of to put on the blog. It would not be aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
So, well… I wanted something neat in there, because that is the “food area” and I wanted to do things on a budget. I am totally game for planning and doing things in a set budget ONLY. Lets just say, I do not want extra costs at this moment.
So, last Saturday, I opened my pantry and memorized the categories of the food that I had and made a mental note of the types of items in my Pantry. I did not want to change the location of the items much but I wanted a better visual at things. For me, it all comes down to Visual!! If I can see it, I know I have it, otherwise I just forget about it and I think its like with most of us.
So, I made a stop at the Dollar store, a bigger one having more variety than just my nearby one and bought the following:
  1. 2 Large Basket
  2. 6 Medium Size baskets
  3. 1 Stick On Pack
  4. 2 Round Baskets
I chose White color because of late I am loving the color white and its just much more pleasing to the eye at all times. But to bring a little color to the kitchen, I had gotten the 2 round baskets in Blue color.
Since, I had already decided my Pantry layout, all I had to do was to take everything out shelf by shelf and put them in the baskets according to the Categories that I decided to put them in. The Categories that I had decided were:
  1. Condiments
  2. Breakfast
  3. Breads
  4. Meal Preparation (Meal Prep)
  5. Biscuits
  6. Snacks
Once I placed them in different baskets, I went and wrote these categories on the Stick Ons and pasted them on the baskets. I placed Onions and Potatoes in the blue round baskets and I keep them in the open because closed doors brings out shoots in them, which are not good for health.
Also, I went a step ahead and did my Grains and Rice section. Since, I already had the containers, I just placed the Stick Ons onto them as well. This gave a much more cohesive look to the whole pantry.

Our First Rakhi After Marriage

The thing with festivals and occasions is you need your family then. Today, me and Peeyush celebrated our first Rakhi in the States. Yep, I did not tie the pretty rakhi bands on to the wrists of my cousins and Peeyush also had to tie it himself (I did help, though but he does not want it to be mentioned, lol).

So I prepared tikka and displayed the rakhi on a nice plate and put out some sweets (Cadbury’s Dairy Milk). Also, I got Rakhi for me ( these are like hanging ones)

The ceremony was short and sweet. Here are the snaps of the Rakhis.
