Hi! I’m Divya


I am the coffee-loving, multi-passionate, perpetual learner, and writer behind the scenes of Smile and a Coffee. I’m a mom to 2 amazing kids, wife to a wonderful husband and a project manager at my day job. As a lover of all things organization, decor, DIY, planning and productivity, I document my journey of creating a beautiful home and a wonderful life here.

I have always been passionate about planning and creating organization systems that are practical and functional. Be it events or projects, I get excited. Labels and checklists are my thing! I use my project management, organization, planning and super mom (mom yes, super?? 🤔) skills to tackle every project, big or small, at home and in life. 

Ironically, when we built our home, although I wanted to get it all pretty and organized, I got very busy at work that had a long commute. Add to it a few health issues and surgeries, our home quickly became a hot mess and stayed that way even after I got better and switched jobs. 

I started Smile and a Coffee to share my journey with you, as I organize and decorate our beautiful home. You can find tips on:

Did I mention that I was born and raised in the beautiful city of Bangalore, India? I now live in the sunny state of Florida in a gorgeous ranch home. If you are looking for inspiration to revamp your own home, you might find a unique idea or two as you watch me set up my home for multicultural living.


So, arm yourself with a smile and a coffee (or any drink of your choice!) and join me on my journey. It’ll be a lot of fun! 🙂
