MODERN NURSERY


Dress: PinkBlush
Mirror: Home Sense
Wallpaper: Coloray Decor
Lamp: Rachael Zoe for Home Sense

I am beyond excited to share Waris's nursery reveal on my blog. I am nearly finished &
waiting on a few items before I finalize everything and declare it complete (for the time
being). I do however want to share a glimpse of my favourite corner of the nursery with 
my modish audience. So, I of course had to put on a pretty PinkBlush dress and throw on 
a comfortable Lamaze onesie for Waris and get us both ready for a photo shoot (of which
our photographer, Manjot, had no idea). Ha! Thankfully, he couldn't refuse after both 
Waris & I had puppy faces on full display. Can you tell - I am loving being a mother? :p

Until I share the finalized nursery reveal, I am very excited to share a first glimpse of

LABOUR OF LOVE: A STORY

 (ft. Baby Waris)



A month of baby Waris and a month of new founded joy, gratitude and blessings. Prior to 
experiencing active labour, I often wondered whether I would cry when our baby would be 
placed in my arms. I usually led myself to believe that I wouldn't - that, instead, I would be 
too filled with contentment to even realize to cry. But, I forgot about the tears of joy. The 
moment baby Waris's warm skin made contact with my bare skin, tears automatically started 
flowing from my eyes. I remember that the first few tears were undoubtedly dedicated to the 
labour finally being over. With this thought, I looked over at Manjot & could tell that he too 
was thankful to see an end to my agony. Without an exchange of any words, I could tell that he

PREGNANCY GLOW

Dress: Zara (similar here)
Bag: Louis Vuitton
Earrings: Linjer Hoops

Nowadays, getting ready means something different for me - I'm more focused on 
putting my belly on full display and dressing it up with outfits with fun elements. 
Take the bow detail on this dress, for example. I also love that it sits a few inches 
above my ankles making it a formal dress, perfect for a date night. The relaxed fit 
right below the bust makes it a great pick for my growing belly. Threw on the 
Louis Vuitton Alma BB and the stunning Sam Edelman sandals with stylish straps 
and a low heel to tie the entire outfit together. Had a great time wearing the outfit!

BABYMOON

Bag: Louis Vuitton

What an absolutely relaxing and much-needed babymoon it was! A 2-nights and 3-days 
stay over the August long weekend was exactly what Manjot and I needed before the 
inevitable sleepless nights and late-night feedings. Manjot and I thoroughly enjoyed the 
one-on-one time before we added another member to our lovely family. Hashtag blessed!

A DREAMY BABY SHOWER



This past weekend, my family hosted the most beautiful baby shower honouring baby 
Grewal and baby mama! What a dreamy event it was - all my close family, friends and 
relatives, the venue, the decor, the cake, the party favours and food were everything I 
could have ever wanted at my baby shower. We were fortunate that the provincial 
covid-19 health and safety guidelines had eased allowing us to invite a lot more family 
and friends than were previously permitted. We decided to keep the event intimate to 
create meaningful interactions amongst our guests and to keep them engaged and 
occupied. That's how every event should be - wouldn't you agree? All in all, the baby 
shower was a hit for me, Manjot and our family and friends. Forever thankful for them!

PHOTO DIARY - MATERNITY EDITION

Photos: JaNa Photography

Though I may have had a moment of shock in witnessing the changes that my body is 
undergoing, I have learned to love it all - the stretched-out belly, the excess weight, the 
expanding hips, etc. Sounds like a pretense, right? I promise it is not once you turn your
mind to the positive work that a body does of nurturing a pure little soul inside a belly. 

Manjot and I wanted to capture my transforming body and what better way to do it than
having an award-winning and profesional photography studio take on that task. This is
precisely why we decided to go with the incredible Nasim from Jana Photography

From our initial consultation to our actual photoshoot session in the studio, Nasim &

MATERNITY FASHION


Dress: Zara (similar in round neck)
Booties: Kurt Geiger (similar in leopard)
Bag: Prada

I have officially stepped into the third trimester of this incredible and beautiful journey! 
It's intriguing to wonder about how life is being developed and sustained inside a human 
body; really makes me turn my mind to a higher creative power. Fascinating, isn't it?!
Let's put a hold on this thought for now because this post is all about maternity fashion!

OH BABY!


Dress: H&M

I am now nearing the end of the second trimester and will be entering into the third trimester
commencing next week. Keeping a track of the beginning and end of each week during the 
first few weeks of my pregnancy was appealing. But, I find that as time progresses, keeping 
a record of the weeks becomes a big blur. Nonetheless, I was sure to mark my calendar with 
important dates such as the end and beginning of a new trimester. This helps Manjot and I stay 
in the know about what to expect with each trimester and the symptoms that accompany it.

THE NEWS


Shoes: Schutz

Undeniably, Manjot and I felt there has been no other bigger news in our lives, to date, 
than announcing our pregnancy to family & friends. Truly a once in a lifetime experience. 
After our family & friends, I am most excited to share the big news with my Modish Fam. 
So here it goes - we are thrilled to announce the arrival of a little someone - Baby Grewal!

Manjot has been wishing for a baby ever since we got married. I certainly did as well but
I wasn't too rushed - not as much as Manjot at least. Of course, I wanted to establish myself
as a lawyer before I entered motherhood. We had so much to accomplish. Then, COVID-19
happened and we were so damn ready! It gives me so much joy to experience Manjot's 
happiness with every passing day. Frankly, nothing else compares to his excitement.

THE STORY

I surprised Manjot with the pregnancy news at the end of December last year & I will 
forever cherish this memory. It was an early morning when I took an at-home pregnancy 
test. Manjot was still in bed. A part of me wanted him to be with me as I didn't quite know

CONT'D - WORKING IT (FROM HOME)


You may have read about my early experience of remote working posted back in September
2020. If you haven't, I invite you to read it here. I am enjoying all the advantages that come
with working from home and trying to make the most of the disadvantages. It is in fact true
that practice makes better. With practice, I have been able to maintain a well-suited and
structured work regime while still staying within the work-specific hours. My absolute fav
is the flexibility in scheduling my own hours on days that are not work-heavy. I can make 
a quick stop for a medical checkup or end up at the grocery store to pick up ingredients 
for a homemade lunch I have been craving. I have the option of putting in extra time 
after hours to make up for the missed time. Overall, in my opinion, the benefits outweigh 
the negatives of remote working. I am happy to know that since our firm had adopted and
accomodated remote working pre-COVID days, I will have this option for the days I need it.
