Grateful for the changes that are coming.
The ones i do not see

2018 - Bring it On

No New Anything in 2018 !

To be honest I'm not much of a resolution person. I believe, one day or even few hours is enough for a person to start or decide on something and go for it, provided that they are 100% convinced.

Top 5 of My Fave Local Brands

Great customer service and a good collection of talented local designers.  Nithya has been my fave so far and got to say recent dress I got by Sajee also is a fave.
