pink chai living, raj thandhi


Hiya! I’m Raj, the girl behind the blog. I believe in multiple cups of chai, good food, big hugs, deep conversations, me time, reading, and travelling. As a recovering people pleaser and an extroverted introvert (it’s a thing, trust me), I use this space to just be me and write about things that make me happy.

Here you’ll find my cooking experiments, favourite products, book reviews, outfit inspiration, travel guides, and anything else that captures my fancy, or more likely my heart. Sometimes I get super deep and personal sharing the ups and downs of life, and other times I keep it really superficial with beauty hacks and fashion tips. I’m very much a West Coast girl, but I have my desi quirks too, and you can see both in the content I create for the site. I guess you could say I’m a little Bollywood-Hollywood. 

Personal Details.

36 years old (you can see my 40 before 4o bucket list here).
Married to the same dude for 16 years.
Have two kids, a 13 year old son and an almost 10 year old daughter, and they are pretty cool.
By day I’m the Creative Director at a digital marketing agency
By night I’m a crime fighting super hero. (I kid, that would be a really hard job for an introvert.)

    Hi Raj,

    We have a show on the east coast called Kitty Talk which airs nationally.
    I was wondering if you’d be interested in being featured through Skype with some informative tips for the South Asian woman.
