An Ordinary Evening Turned Extraordinary: #RnMOnAskMe!!

What do you feel after a tiresome, gruesome, painful day of travel? A plate full of mouth-watering home made tasty food. Being a Bengali, what more can I ask than some jhuri aloo bhaja (fried potato), some mouth watering sea-food, a meat meal, some curry item and our quintessential misti (sweet dish)? However, after a hard day, you are not in the mood to return home and make it all by yourself. And at the same time, your heart cribs for some home made food!! What to do? Well, I came across this amazing Askme App and guess what!! I did what I had to do.

I installed the Askme App on my Ipad which was just in a whoosh!! Believe me. I selected our area and searched for Bengali restaurants. And voila!! I got some nice choices, out of which I selected the nearest one to our house and that is Bijoligrill in Hiranandani. Me and my family walked to that place (yes it is so nearby) and we were quite surprised to find it crowded, well, almost overloaded. It was better as we got to seat outdoors, facing a children's playzone and getting a glimpse of the full moon night along with the children playing. Sounds fun? 

My Food Tales, My Food Moments!!

Food -Only thing in the world which everyone loves to have,Can make anyone happy and necessary for living.Every occasion and every movement of life is incomplete without tasty food.Food can join two hearts and also make meet many hearts.Everyone loves homemade food than from Hotels. I remember one saying which every food lover says "We do not eat food to survive, we survive to eat food!!!!!"

I still remember that moment when i visited my home place and one day all of the sudden my childhood friends came to meet me in the afternoon.My mom was not finished with cooking and my friends were hungry.Me and My mom were tensed that what to make at a less time.My Mom is an expert in making "Aloo paratha" and I suggested her to make it.Within Half an hour she was ready with the food and served her famous "Aloo paratha". After eating my mom's Aloo Paratha everyone was so impressed that they could not stop raving about it .The finger licking taste left all my friends spellbound and wanting for more.They thanked me and my mom and just continued praising the wonderful taste.I wish if something would have been there at that time so that we could quickly order some thing and get Door step delivery.

Facts about acne mechanica and scar treatment

You may have noticed acne lesions sprouting in places where your skin gets rubbed. Especially, on your shoulders where you carry your backpack, across the forehead beneath your hat or helmet, or on your chin under the helmet chin strap. The cause for this is acne mechanica. It is triggered due to excessive heat, pressure, friction, or rubbing of the skin. It can occur anywhere on the face or body. Those who are prone to body acne are likely to develop acne mechanica. Read further to find out which acne scar treatment and solutions helps treat the condition.

Ø What is acne mechanica?

Pimples caused due to skin friction, heat, and pressure on the skin or when it isn’t exposed to air. Such sweaty and continually rubbed skin can break out in rashes that is also called as acne. Some of the common causes include wearing a tightly fitting hat, equipment that uses straps, musical instruments pushed against the skin for an extended period, synthetic headbands, tightly fitting clothing or bras. Athletic equipment serves as the prime culprit, especially among teen boys. Soccer or hockey pads, baseball caps, sweatbands, and helmets can evoke a breakout on the face or body of athletes. Sports gear and clothing traps heat and sweat against the skin that quickly leads to acne mechanica. There is a crucial need for the best acne scar treatment and solution.

Faces Canada #ItKit launch Vlog

Hi beautifuls, here's another vlog for all of you from the new #ItKit launch by Faces Cosmetics in association with The Trunk Label and curated by Bipasha Basu.

Weekly Choco Minty Body Spa Ritual Ft. Juicy Chemistry & Puro Body & Soul

Hey beautifuls!! You must be aware by now, how much I love chocolates? Dark, caramel, white, I cannot say no to any form!! I own a lot of products that has chocolate in them. Recently I have been following a relaxing and rejuvenating weekly spa regime at home with, well lots of chocolaty things!!

So how does my Choco Minty Spa go?
I mix equal portion of  a Peppermint Green tea Scrub along with a Choco vanilla scrub to make the scrub smell like choco mint. Another reason for doing the same is that while the Peppermint Tea tea scrub is good for scrubbing away dead and dull skin, it may leave my skin a bit dry. The choco vanilla scrub is very creamy and hydrating so by mixing both I get an superb exfoliating creamy scrub that smells divine too. After scrub off with a loofah, and towel drying my body, I apply avery rich white chocolate mint body butter. And OMG, how divine my body smells!! To raise the chocolaty touch a bit higher I spray a bit of my very favourite Choco vanilla spray!!

Doodle Collection YRF Bell Diary Review

I am a typical 90's kid!! I still remember and cherish my school days, the first crush, the first time I went to watch a movie by lying at home!! And it does not take a humongous weight to guess the movie it was, well, it was Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge or as we love to refer it as DDLJ. My liking for the movie started then and still continues to be the same as whenever I can, I catch up the movie. Every bit of it was so enjoyable, I know there are people who have found out 88 flaws from it, but well, do I care? So when Doodle Collection sent me the YRF Bell Diary, it was like going to a flashback, 20 years back.

Parenting is perhaps the most difficult phase of life, specially if both the parents are working. We often tend to indulge our kids with the best gadgets and the latest technological offerings, sometimes to enhance their learning, and sometimes also to fill up the time that we cannot actually give them, due to our busy schedule. Today I will be talking about such a mom, who is working and at the same time makes sure to give her only daughter quality time so that she does not stray to the wrong path.

#HomeCanvas is Where the Heart is!!

Home is where the heart is!! I am sure, each one of us will agree to this popular saying. Small or big, your home is your most peaceful abode. Your home is your cradle of security, your home is your Mecca of Love. My heart lies within the four walls of my home. I know it may not be a palace or it may not be equipped with the latest modern facilities, but it is a palace of peace, equipped by ample of love. But what if I get an opportunity to give my home a sleek and fun makeover?

The walls of my rooms are cream yellow in colour. The first and foremost addition that I would love is to paint them in vivid colours. How about some sunshine orange, lavender violet, ocean blue and pastel pink? Sounds too much? Well, I want the fun and bright element to always play around so that we get positively energized.

My #HomeCanvas with My Mood

Those who are very close to me, know very well about my fluctuating mood. I can be playful, jovial and friendly at some moments, and completely bored, aloof and disinterested in the very next. Colours, scents, foods-my choices vary according to my mood. Specially when it comes to home décor, I try to change the interiors of my home quite often. Sometimes, I will get a bronze statue, and after a few days I will replace it with a vase full of colourful orchids. My home keeps on changing colours, just to keep pace with my mood.

To keep things safe, my husband has kept the colours of my home very basic, so that when required we can give a special touch to it. However, there are certain very basic things that will remain unaltered in my home, that is a very comfortable sitting arrangement with some lovely cushions. Cushions play a very major role in my home décor, be it my living room, or my bedroom. I just cannot get enough of those, starting from silk embroidered ones to feathery and sequinned ones to exotic kantha stitched worked ones, I treasure a wide variety in my stack and keep on altering them, time and again.

Del Monte #ItalianEscapades with Cheesy Tangy Penne Pasta

I am a pasta addict, and I generally love simple cheesy ones, while my husband is the one who likes it with lots of vegetables and a sumptuous amount of meat.

A Makeup & Hairstyle Session from MyGlamm
