It’s time for hope to fill the air and the lights to shine upon us. Diwali is the festival of lights and every time we come close to this joyous festival, we find ourselves prepping for it with full gusto. Sadly, apart from joy and sacredness, this season also brings with it the horror of pollution. Firecrackers play a major part in the Diwali celebrations contributing to causing harm to the environment. This year, however, you can ditch firecrackers and spend the money on something better, even eco-friendly options.

Here is what you can get on your firecrackers budget:

L I V I N G – Schönes wohnen ist für mich ganz wichtig! Wenn in meinem Zimmer unordnung herrscht, kann ich nur halb so gut schlafen wie wenn alles sauber ist?Es macht so viel aus!

We can’t say no to a getaway. Can we? 

A good set of traditional clothes will bring out the festive spirit in us. Owning a kanjivaram/banarasi silk has its own pride.

One great way to celebrate is to invest in home decor. A cute, classy throw on a good set of furniture will light your Diwali up.
