I’m a West Coast girl, with big city dreams. I love road trips, movie marathons, mac & cheese, and Panjabi music. My two favourite places in the world are; on an airplane headed to a new destination, or at home curled up with a book. 
If I'm not reading, I'm probably cooking ... or eating! 

Also:
will travel for food
still believes in fairytales

I'm Raj!

Other important hats I wear are; mom, wife, daughter, and entrepreneur. 

hiya,

I launched Pink Chai in 2010 as a social media marketing & graphic design agency. The blog was sort of a side project, just for fun. Now, it's the heart & soul of our creative business. This is where I share my favourite recipes, lifestyle inspiration, cultural content, fashion & beauty tips, decor ideas, book recommendations, and motherhood moments. 

Comfort food is my love language, and my cooking is homestyle for sure. My design aesthetic is just a little bit quirky, but for the most part classic, and obviously pink! When it comes to home decor I like to mix vintage finds with modern pieces, and I'm a big fan of DIY art and pops of colour. My wardrobe is a good mix of casual and dressy, and I can never say know to a rainbow dress or leopard print shoes. 

The things that matter the most to me are spreading kindness, finding joy in the everyday, and holding my family close.



I BELIEVE IN:

Romance, coffee, comfortable shoes, deep conversations,strong drinks, cute gifs, too the point emails, and the power of storytelling.

YOU CAN FIND ME:

Behind my laptop, wandering the make-up aisle, cuddling my kids, in the kitchen, reading, or on a flight. (Catch me if you can)

daily rituals

Read The New Yorker, listen to music, drink chai, kick ass at work, smash the patriarchy, wash my face, sleep peacefully. (Also, eat all the things.) 

more about me...

My parents immigrated to Canada from Punjab Indian in the 1970s, and I'm proud to be a first generation Canadian and call Surrey BC home. I live in this beautiful place with my husband, two kids (boy and girl), and my mom - who you can sometimes catch my instastories.
