About This Blog

Okay, so you have landed on this page! I am so glad that you are curious to know about me.

I started this blog in 2007 as my digital diary – a personal blog. Eventually, it became my voice and a place to talk about everything under the sun. I blogged as a hobby and never considered it a side hustle. I love telling stories and that is exactly what I do.

Cut to 2019, I decided to pursue my hobby as my career and I am glad I did it. It’s a job that keeps me on my toes all the time. I have scaled this blog to a monthly footfall of more than 15,000 and a DA of 52 in two years.

I call this little space on this internet a lifestyle blog – as I said, I talk about everything under the sun!

I was born in India and I started travelling in 2016. Google Maps tells me that I have been to 12 countries and to more than 250 cities. I decided to live in different countries before “settling” in one place.

I am currently based out of Texas, United States, and taking life easy. I hope that wasn’t too long!

Mixology as my Passion & Proffesion

For me, drinks imply two things – happiness and conversations!

Good or bad, drinks are a conversation starter. I made strangers my best friends – over drinks! I have always been intrigued by the wonderful flavours offered by wine and spirits.

My journey started as a home bartender. I wanted to make pretty and delicious drinks accessible at home – without doing a grocery run to get the fancy ingredients.

Eventually, I started creating recipes and content for my favourite liquor and mixer brands! I received a lot of love on my Instagram.

And now, I am happy to be the drink consultant and private bartender you always wanted to have at your events!
