About me

Hello!!!! I am Saumya. Thank you for visiting my blog. πŸ˜ƒ

Simple, silly, fun loving, daydreamer and a hopeless romantic 😜 – that is how I would like to describe myself. Born and brought up in the bustling and colorful city of Mumbai, India and now enjoying my blissfully married life in New Jersey.

I am very passionate about cooking, baking and well eating :D. I am a total Β foodie and so is my husband. Cooking makes me happy and I consider it to be my stress buster. But more than anything, it is the sheer pleasure of cooking for others that makes me all the more happier. I am very much thankful to my mother and my sister who inspired me and taught me the nuances of cooking. It is only because of them that I am able to dish out some decent food in the kitchen.

But but but….cooking is not the only thing that I enjoy. I absolutely love traveling, exploring new places, culture and the vast array of cuisines. Apart from traveling, I also love photography (not that i am a professional but trying to learn at the best of my ability…at a snails pace though πŸ˜‚). Thanks to hubby – I have also acquired the love for exploring cuisine’s from different parts of the world and trying local flavors. And like all the other girls, I also enjoy fashion, beauty, shopping, and DIYs… πŸ˜›

My blog will be a showcase of my cooking recipes, our little travel adventures, lifestyle and food.

I hope you will enjoy reading my posts as much as I enjoy writing them. Do write to me about your thoughts and your views on any of my post or about the blog and how I can improve it further at upclosewithsaumya@gmail.com. I will be more than happy to hear from you.
