miss elephantess says adieu.

I've gone from fashion to lifestyle to writing, and I've almost tried it all. After a rocky eight months, with the continuous questioning of my blogging existence, I'm bidding farewell to Errand Unfinished/Chai Over Coffee/Upwardss/Up, Up, and Away.

Lying isn't really my thing, so I'll just say that it is hard to give up on something I've been trying SO hard on. But, as it turns out, writing isn't my forte.

I've reached 18,000 pageviews and fifty five people wanted to join me on this journey. Thank you all for inspiring me to grow with each and every post. You guys are really what kept me going

All goodbyes present a new hello. Elephantess, a photography lifestyle blog, mostly wordless, because a picture is worth a thousand words. Also, I wouldn't mind a follow there. :)

my header is designed by the lovely Arohee.
the picture for my button is by this beautiful artist.

If you have any questions about my decision, or my new (and improved) wordless blog, please feel free to ask below!

Thank you so much for supporting me on this journey. I couldn't have done it without you all.


to-do this summer♥

we tried. #pinterestworthy?
buy a plane ticket to a place you've never been.
drive until you're out of gas.

feel alive at least once this summer: where your heart pounds so loud, that you're sure it fills the little holes in you and the emptiness around you.
find a cure to wanderlust.
spend five dollars a day.
go paint-balling.
buy overalls (or maybe that's just me).
deprive yourself of a screen for a while.
find new music + music videos to obsess over.
celebrate awesomeness.

excuses to publish a baby photo.
I've been slacking on blogging for a bit-- summer has taken control of my life for the past two weeks or so (not that I'm complaining). No matter how late I tend to sleep, I've been (kind of) turning into a morning person because of all the wonderful places and people I've met in the past two weeks. Waking up to people and places that you love is a very nice feeling. I'd like to hold for a very long time.

Here's a big shoutout to the people that can stand my all caps chatting, texting, and talking. You guys are the real MVPs. Thank you.

"On a scale of one to ten, how loud am I?" 
Hi. My name is Devanshi, I'm fourteen years old, and I am an extremely loud person. It first started in fourth grade, when my best friend and I became really close, and that's when I realized that if I  stayed the shy, quiet Indian girl in the corner of the classroom nobody would ever hear my voice or what I'd have to say to the world. So I decided that I wasn't going to be that girl anymore. It was a gradual change of course, but one that I don't regret one bit.
Props to the people that put up with me on a daily basis. I don't know what I would do without you.
You might have noticed that some things on my blog are now all in caps. 


You know dance is taking over your life when Karnatic music just can't seem to get out of your head. But it's completely okay because it's the best. Listen to thisthis, and this to get started  addicted. I think I'm starting to get a bad case of dance fever.


It's finally that time in summer when I don't really know what date it is. (And secretly, it's a very carefree and favorite thing). 

How's your summer going? xx
