LBBD & Page99.in joined forces, and called a few of our favourite entrepreneurs in Delhi for a drinks and snacks get together at The Wishing Chair for a incredibly inspiring Sunday evening. Most of our week was spent in prepping for our Ramlila event in Chandni Chowk; Delhi 6 looks the best during this time of the year! More of our new obsessions and wanderings around town- everyday’s awesome when you’re adding to your little black book.

# 1 ‘Bring Your Story’ with LBBD+Page99.in at The Wishing Chair | 20 entrepreneurs brought their go-to books for inspiration; we drank a little, ate a little, talked a lot, and discussed all the good, bad and mind-blowing that goes into our businesses.

# 2. Meet Rashmi Varma | This incredibly warm and super talented designer is prepping for her debut line which launches next year in Feb/March. Ladies, block your calendars, save up, and make sure you have a piece of Rashmi in your closet. We’re giving you the scoop from her closet in our next edition of Closet Diaries!

# 3 Snippets from ‘Explore Delhi | Celebrating Ramlila in Chandni Chowk’ | We took over 40 of our readers for a walk around Ramlila celebrations in Chandni Chowk. This 300 year old festive extravaganza is a must-see, and it’s even better when you have the LBBD crew walking and talking you through it.

# 4 Tis the season for cutting chai The weather gods are complying with our {inundated} requests for the weather to change, the temperature to mellow, and for the best months of the year to begin. We’re ushering it in with good old cutting chai. Meet one of our favourite chaiwallah’s hailing from Chandni chowk.

# 5 Pigging on ‘Paw Bhaji’ | That’s how they spelt it in Dilli-6. Our Ramlila extravaganza brought with it a copious amount of food, including chaat, rumali rolls, tikki and the most melt-in-your-mouth pao bhaji you’ll ever have courtesy LS Caterers.

# 6 Oh hey, Nappadori.com | The world wide web just got a lot fancier and slicker- artisanal cult favourite, leather+canvas galore, Nappa Dori just got it’s own space online on nappadori.com. We’re getting our hands on their ikat laptop case.. as soon as we save up on enough money.

# 7 Peace in Paharganj | Funny how the apparent ‘shadiest’ corners of Delhi also finds a way to convey a message, in its own amusing way! We stumbled upon this graffiti on the walls in Paharganj.

# 8 Shahpur Jat Open House! | We <3 Shahpur Jat! What started out as “the other village” has soon become a hub for designers, decorators, foodies, curators, and anyone with a penchant for the good things in life. We made our way, yet again, to SPJ where the stores and restaurant owners are busy planning for the BIG FAT celebration of this artistic hamlet.

# 9 We got mail | When magazines from local stores cost as much as 3 books put together, you’ve got to weigh your options while splurging on international editions of Elle or Harpers Bazaar, or Vanity Fair, V, New Yorker and the likes. It helps to have travelling friends who bring back a few of our favourite reads from all over the world! Nothing beats a stellar editorial!

 # 10 Light’s on Wills India Fashion Week | They’re quite a few designers whose collection caught our eye this season- Aneeth Arora, Nachiket Barve, Ruchika Sachdeva’s Bodice, Masaba, Pankaj & Nidhi to name a few. The stalls at Fashion Week are also a must visit; Outhouse’s new collection is on display, as is CellDSGN, Kiran Uttam Ghosh, Rimzim Dadu & Nikasha.
