My Health Date At Apollo :)

If you have followed me on Instagram, you might have noticed how much I give importance to my skincare and beauty. From using the right hair mask to wearing the perfect shoes, I pay minute attention to my appearance. However, what most of us, including me, neglect is that healthcare is more important than looking pretty.

You can look as pretty as you want – without good health conditions, everything will go in vain.

I have been contemplating to set up a proper healthcare routine for me. Around that time, Apollo Hospitals approached me with their Express Health Check-up Package, I was happy to take it. Without further ado, I am going to take you through my day’s experience, my learning, and my suggestions for the same. Continue reading

MyDaily Meal – Vanilla: A Review

I was recently contacted by the PR of myDaily Meal to review their product. I was sceptical about it initially. However, since my friend Sindhu also tried and reviewed this product, I wanted to go ahead and try it.

I got the Vanilla/Original flavour to be reviewed. I forgot to tell them not to send Vanilla as I am not a big fan of it. Nevertheless, I did want to try the original flavour once it arrived as I might be biased and in favour if it was the chocolate flavour. Continue reading

Meena Tai’s – A Quintessential Maharastrian Veg Cuisine Review

Hi, folks,

We recently collaborated with Meena Tai’s for a food tasting session. While we initially wanted to collaborate with Batlivala & Khanaboy – their other venture, the owner of the ventures suggested us to try Meena Tai’s.

Since both V & I haven’t tried much of Maharastrian cuisine, we were sceptical. Our knowledge about Maharastrian food was limited to Vada Pav and Misal Pav. However, when we entered this restaurant, we were in for a surprise. Read on to know about our experience.

Ambiance is something that will catch my eye whenever we visit any restaurant. This restaurant’s ambiance was on the point. Amazing, royal decor is what the resto had. Yellow walls, ethnic mirrors, and lots of ancient utensils on the cupboard – that’s the decor, and I loved it. Continue reading

Kailash Parbat – A Food Court Experience Review

Hi, Folks,

Last evening I had a chance to visit The Forum Mall. We planned to drop by Lifestyle and Max stores to check out the ethnic wear collections for Diwali. Needless to say, I did shop more than I wanted to. However, this post is not another OOTD, but an eatery review. Since both my friend and I were hungry, we went to the Food Court as soon as we entered.

Both of us love North Indian Khana, so our obvious choice was Kailash Parbat. I generally don’t review eateries that are in Food Courts of malls, but the food court in this mall was well-maintained and spacious that it felt like a normal dining experience.

SERVICE: It’s self-service. Most of the food items were ready in prior, like the briyani, gravy, etc. So, the food was available within minutes. Therefore, this is good for people who love to grab something super quick. Continue reading

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.
