To the guy I currently love…

Hey, you,

Yes, you, the guy I am currently head over heels in love with. No one will understand my love for you; people wish us luck to our face but may judge us at our back.

We can’t blame them. We don’t fit into the society’s square of thoughts. We have been in love with different people before. We have kissed different people before. We lost our ‘virginity’ to someone we loved way before we met. Neither we were each other’s first, nor we promised to be each other’s last.

5 Reasons Why You Should Shop At Big Bazaar Maha Bachat

Most of you know my preference for Big Bazaar. They are one of the supermarkets that have everything a shopper needs. From my hair curler to my cabin luggage, from my teddy bear to my long skirt, I got them all from there. They often give some amazing deals and offers. Here are some of the reasons stating why you must be shopping from Big Bazaar, especially during Maha Bachat.

  1. Your long weekend is there! Long weekend, no travel plans? Unwind with shopping for apparels, grocery, home decor, and what not! My mom is planning to do all her long pending shopping plans during this long weekend.
  2. Offers like never before! While Big Bazaar already has offers, these additional offers are an icing on the cake.
  3. 5 Day long sales! Generally most deals are for 24 hours! The Maha Bachat is for 5 days! The more the time, the merrier the shopping experience.
  4. Buy 1 Get 2 Free! Well, gone are those days of Buy 2 Get 1 or Buy 1 Get 1. Now, we have Buy 1 Get 2 in many products, especially for men’s wear!
  5. Offers on furnitures! Getting offers on furnitures is a big deal. Maha Bachat gives that! So, all the more fun, especially if you are moving to a new home or refurbishing your home post this aadi season.

What are you waiting for? Oh wait! If you have a payback card for Big Bazaar, your points gets accumulated too. Isn’t that amazing? Go ahead, shop till you drop, and then shop a bit more.

Well, don’t believe me? Check out for yourself with this TVC.

Mantra – Palace Of Good Vibes

When I was invited to review this store, I was skeptical. I cannot call myself a super religious person. I am part religious, part spiritual, and part pantheist. However, I finally accepted to review this store, and I am in fact glad about it.

Mantra, located right next to Sri Sankara Hall in Alwarpet, is a beautiful store that not only specializes in religious idols and articles, but also in many home décor artifacts. The two-storied store has a collection of artifacts ranging from lamps, kuthu vilaku, kamakshi vilaku, temple bells, religious idols, name boards, and other décor fixtures.

How To Style A Saree? #Sareez.com

Hi, Folks,

Saree is the best Indian outfit. Yeah, Salwars may come, Lehangas may go, but Saree goes on forever (pun not intended). I personally love Sarees; although I don’t wear them often, I love the times that I wear them. This outfit can be a bridesmaid outfit, sister-of-the-groom/bride outfit, or a simple wedding guest outfit.

Smytten – Truly Smitten :)

Hi, Folks,

One of my colleagues recently suggested me to download the “Smytten” app. I was skeptical because I have a lot of apps on my phone that are pretty much not used. However, the moment I downloaded it, I understood that this is an amazing app.  Once you download this app, you need to wait for 24 hours to get an activation mail. I got the mail in less than four hours though. After that, you can go and start applying for free samples.

Six Degrees – Game Of Blogs: A Book Review

Hi, Folks,

You know you are an avid book reviewer, and your review opinions are unbiased and that they matter, when you receive the book you co-authored for your review. Ha! Yes, this is my book that I have on my review table today. Before getting into the review, as an co-author for this book, some of the questions that I faced from my blog followers and friends were, “Why is this book expensive?” “Why is it not available in stores yet?” “Did you write the whole book?” “Did you edit it?” Well, to start with, this book is a child of 3 teams, each team had 8-10 writers. The book is expensive because it has not one but three 30,000 words novella in it. It is available in Amazon, Flipkart, and other sites, and it will be available in the stores very soon. Of the three stories, I co-authored the story titled “Entangled Lives.”

Paper Boat – Drinks, Memories, & More…

Hi, Folks,

I am a person who loves watching TVC more than anything else on the television. However, these days not many TVCs intrigue me. I feel that due to social media being a major source for advertising these days, TVCs have taken a backseat. However, a few ads caught my eye in the recent past. One of those were Paper Boat Drinks.

Ad about childhood memories always strikes the chord. Coming to the product, I am so happy to have got this amazing box of memories to review.

Tagged: A Book Review

Hi, Folks,

When the author approached me to get a review of this book, her debut one, I was more than interested. The first reason here is the title and the book blurb. Facebook Love Story is what she told me that it is. I was intrigued. While there are a few books on this theme, I haven’t read them at all. There was something in me that wanted to know how can two people trust one another so much just virtually to fall in love with each other. In reality, many do that. I, personally, cannot even be close buddies with someone whom I have interacted only online. Of course, there are a few exceptions, and to Preethi, the protagonist, too Sai Prabhu is an exception for they meet online. However, do they end up together is the question that shall be answered by the book.

Between Now & Forever – A Book Review

Hi, Folks,

The first question people ask me after reading my stories is that, “You read a lot of romance, don’t you?” To be honest, the answer is No. I have not read any of the so-called best romance novels. With no offense to legends who write them, I found that a typical romance novel or movie is too overwhelming for me. I would rather prefer literature or erotica over it. Yes, I know those are like two extremes. Coming to the later, I am a person who like many others read most of the Mills & Boon books out there. If you are wondering what this post has got to do with that, then well, here it is, Between Now & Forever by Meera Shiva is something on that lines.

Half A Shadow – A Book Review

Hi, Folks,

I have been having back to back books coming up for reviews. One look at the TBR bookshelf, I will faint. I had a target of 100 books to be read this year, and within 5 months it’s already done. Huh! I read almost one book daily :O Phew! Still, looks like a whole lifetime is not sufficient to finish my TBR list. When I die, my greatest sorrow will be that I have not finished many of the books that I wanted to. Well, without more nautanki, here it is, the review.
