freidapintoThe hunt was over when I finally found this perfect forest green sofa. Fall has arrived.🍂 Thank you so much @roomandboard for being such wonderful design partners.
freidapintoThank you to my partners @Audi for your work with @AmericanFilmInstitute to spotlight female filmmakers #ad. To me, #ChangingTheChairs means allowing women to share their perspective with the world, the way they see it #DriveProgress #AFIFEST
freidapintoAnd here it is...Been patiently waiting to share this wonderful campaign with Clarks I get to boast of. Would you believe it, if I told you life always comes full circle! Growing up in Bombay it was impossible in the early 2000s to find shoes that fit my precious big feet. Clarks had just come to India and it was the only brand that felt like it cared for my feet and did so quite stylishly. I was so ecstatic to not have to squeeze my feet into ill fitted shoes or wait for the cousins and aunts to travel from the West with shoes for me and my sister. So imagine my happiness and joy when Clarks called to come on board and be their brand ambassador. Yes, Yes, Yes!
Presenting to you the Fall Winter Clarks campaign shot in one my favourite cities...London! @clarksshoes #clarksforlife

An Insta- Detox Story
A few weeks ago I felt quite claustrophobic on Instagram. It was increasingly getting filled with shallow, temporary, inconsequential, fake, negative noise and messaging and it felt heavy and dense. While there were certainly positive rays of light that so often can put a smile on your face, there were equal or more of the opposite. I felt sad and quite literally like I was wasting my time. Like I was stuck in an episode of Black Mirror. And all that foreshadowing of a disconnected future starting seeming real.
I started becoming acutely aware of young kids and adults experiencing beautiful destinations in the world only through the limited lens of their cellphones. All for the 'Gram'. I wanted to shake them out of their daze and remind them to stay present and use their eyes! But quickly realised it wasn't my business! And surely as much as I hate it, I have done it too.
I started questioning if Instagram had any positive effects on humankind at all. If it gave me an joy? Quite frankly, I have always had a love- hate relationship with social media. Those who know me and maybe those who follow me can clearly see that too. So I took time off this platform for a while to do a 100% cleanse of these feelings and reasses if it made any sense to me at all and if what I put out in the world mattered, then what is it that I REALLY want to say....

freidapinto(Part 2 of 2)
So, In that time off some wonderful things happened:
1. I read more books.
2. I slept an undisturbed 7 to 8 hrs every night.
3. I had more time to workout meditate and plan my meals right.
4. I didn't get headaches and motion sickness from scrolling in moving cars.
5. I was more curious about the details of the current affairs and not just headlines.
6. I didn't fall into that deep dark hole that starts with a photo of your bestie on a holiday and a wasted hour later ends up on an account of cute golden retrievers doing cute things.(although those retrievers did brighten up my day often)
7. I stopped getting drawn into ads and buying more than I needed.
8. I was a lot more clueless on who wore what, ate what, kissed who..and my gosh I am happy to be clueless again!
9. My phone battery stayed alive longer. Woohoo!
10. I now know all the hues that I might have missed that come to make Cory's beautiful blue eyes! 😍
So here I am...Making an appearance on this platform but this time very aware of what I want to put out on it and more importantly what I certainly don't want to take from it. I do enjoy sharing my thoughts and views, especially when they are positive and can inspire on a public platform. But I still plan on sleeping 8 hrs undisturbed every night with lowered cortisol levels. Wouldn't trade that for blue light exposure before bedtime ever again!
I am sharing my story with you because I know there is a large majority out there who relate and if any of you are planning on going/have gone on a real insta detox or have found that using this platform meaningfully and positively, maybe even sparingly has bettered your life. Then I highly recommed it and... Congratulations!
Until next time
Love and positive vibes

freidapintoI’m very glad to announce that “Wild Edens: South Asia” is coming! Don’t miss the chance to see some of the most remote and beautiful wilderness of India and Bangladesh! On April 27, 2019, if you're in India, check out @natgeo for the first screening and don’t miss the full schedule on @wild_edens_project
freidapintoMumbai City!!! @Wild_edens_project and I have arrived, with an entire episode dedicated to my beautiful country. .
This beautiful creature, the Asian elephant, has a deeply moving story to tell. Yes, I use the word "deep" and "moving" with reason. Elephants are capable of very complex thoughts and feelings. They are extremely intelligent and have three times as many neurons as humans. They feel the widest range of emotions and are capable of incredible empathy. But these gentle giants face the threats of habitat loss and poaching at the hands of humans.
My hope is that with this film we generate some empathy and awareness about these and other rare and wild species that need our immediate attention and an awakened conscience. I believe it is Possible. ❤

I’m thrilled to narrate the “Wild Edens: South Asia” documentary. The film focuses on the most vulnerable and rare species of animals and plants endangered by climate change in India and Bangladesh. As a @wild_edens_project ambassador I’m happy to share this film with you in the upcoming spring.

freidapintoHappiness is......allowing and processing the experience of the entire range of human emotions. Yes, sadness, anger anxiety included. ☺
freidapintoA little #tbt on this rainy LA day.... dreaming of my epic India trip and the stunning view of the Taj Mahal from @oberoiamarvilas @oberoihotels. Check out my story for the view. .
freidapintoOn the last day of this year that taught me so much through both pain and happiness, I seize this humbling moment in the presence of the magnificent Himalayas. I remind myself that nothing is more rewarding and breathtaking than staying grounded, reflective, receptive and aware. I welcome another year of more self discovery and inner peace. .
In the words of my favourite travel essayist Pico Iyer:
In an age of speed, I began to think, nothing could be more invigorating than going slow. In an age of distraction, nothing can feel more luxurious than paying attention. And in an age of constant movement, nothing is more urgent than sitting STILL.
Happy New Year all!!

ऐ मेरे वतन के लोगों
ज़रा आँख में भर लो पानी
जो शहीद हुए हैं उनकी
ज़रा याद करो क़ुरबानी
People of my country/ allow those tears to fill up your eyes/for those who have been martyred/ let us remember their sacrifice.

freidapintoAs a Bombay Girl at heart, it is impossible to not feel nostalgic in some of this city's oldest and still popular charms. Like Britannia & Co.. I used to frequent this Parsi restaurant as a student of St. Xavier's College and religiously ordered the Berry Pulav and sali boti. But it is not just the delish food you take in here, you are literally breathing in so much history and culture. The restaurant's 94yr old owner Boman Kohinoor personally comes over to take your order and share his stories.
The Parsi community fled to India some 1200 years ago to escape persecution during the Arab conquest of Persia. Seeking refuge in India, they blend their own culture and traditions with the Hindu culture and created a new identity for themselves, while still retaining their roots.There is so much you will be curious about at this vintage, quaint little establishment started in 1923, but above all, you will find impossible to ignore that migration does create so much flavour and richness. Immigrants DO NOT change culture they EXPAND culture by expanding your world view and making it so much more connected.
Follow @coryt to see some beautiful pictures he captured at this historic must visit spot in Mumbai. Jai Ho!
freidapintoHow lucky is anyone who has been graced by your heart full of light!💛
Birthday love, kisses and deep appreciation for you, my beautiful man! I celebrate you today and everyday. Happy Birthday love!
