Hi there, I’m Krishna! Welcome to my little corner on the Internet!
SO, WHO’S PAISLEY?
People often ask me – Krish is your nickname but who’s this Paisley? Paisley is my invisible partner! Ha..just kidding!
Paisley is simply a representation of my culture and the place I am from. It’s a mango motif design, which is associated with Persian and Indian traditional designs. If you don’t believe me, read here. It’s just a beautiful combination of traditional and modern ideas and that’s what my blog is all about.
I was born and raised in the mid-western part of India and moved to United States about 13 years back. Currently, I live near Houston, TX with my hubby and a 6-year-old daughter. Prior to earning Master’s degree in Business, I majored in English Literature and that’s where the love for writing sprouted. Over the years working in Houston’s corporate industry as a financial analyst, my writing skills got more technical and the poems of Wordsworth didn’t come to me anymore. I felt like I was losing my creative side, the one I loved so much! But, I knew I had developed a whole new love for digital media and photography and needed an expression, that’s when I started writing this blog!
This blog is my virtual diary and a creative outlet! Visual storytelling around food, travel, culture & lifestyle is what I absolutely love to do! I have always had love for beauty, décor, fabrics, jewelry and all things creative; ask anyone who knew me growing up. I guess I gravitate towards it naturally!
I document recipes that are mainly low-carb/gluten free and helps in weight-loss, products that I have genuinely found useful (no sponsored posts and no paid promotions), some DIY beauty tips and tricks especially geared towards my South Asian skin & hair, and some of the amazing places and people that inspire me.
Thanks for stopping by! I absolutely love to connect with people, which is one of the best part about blogging.

How often do you blog?
I usually blog once every 15-20 days and update my blog over the weekends.
Do you accept sponsored posts and paid media promotions?
Blogging is a hobby for me, not a source of income. It is a way to connect with my fellow bloggers and my community. Once it becomes a chore, I might just lose the interest, creativity and enthusiasm. Also, once I decide to go full time into blogging and monetize this blog in future, I will put my heart and soul in it!
What camera do I use?
I use Nikon D90 with 50mm and 18-200mm zoom lens, but the one I love the most is my iPhone 6 and its HD setting, pretty handy tool, right?
May I use your photos?
Absolutely, but please ask and make sure to link back to my blog as most of the pictures are copyrighted. I am an amateur photographer but I work really hard to take each shot. It literally takes up a good amount of time from clicking the picture to editing, and uploading so I would appreciate proper credit.
Why was my comment removed or not published?
I absolutely love to hear from you and appreciate constructive criticism. I prefer to keep the discussion positive and if your comment is in a poor taste or spam, then it won’t be published.
How can I get in touch with you?
I would love to hear from you! If you have a particular request or any other question, feel free to send me an email on Paisleyandkrish@gmail.com.
