D:OH, Lower Parel – Review

The quirky interior and the board games rack near the entrance made me like the place instantly. I went there around 10.30pm and thus it was quite empty, only two other tables were occupied. I decided to sit on the swing-ish table.

They don’t really have a ton of food options, just the basics. We had the Burnt Garlic Chicken Dumpling, What We Chef’s Eat Spaghetti, Choco Freak Freakshake and Old Fashioned Chocolate Cake.

The Dumpling, Freakshake and Chocolate was nice. I didn’t really like the Spaghetti. I also feel that the portions are quite less, I don’t think they are meant for two. My favourite is the Dumpling, they were just perfect. I wish I had Schezwan Sauce to go with it, it would have been just perfect.

It is a fun place to with friends and spend a few hours playing board games and eating. I loved playing Tic Tac Toe and Uno.

Mom Found A Condom

Never in her life had she thought that she will ever say this. Of course since she had started dating quite early, she was sure that her mom had a hunch that she may be involved in some making out, but sex?! She didn’t think she mother was ready for that revelation. Honestly, even she wasn’t ready to her mother finding out.

It was a morning like every other, both of them were in a hurry to get the morning chores done and leave for work. She was curling her lashes, when her mother pulls out the condom and confronts her.

Mom: I found this yesterday. Where did this come from?
She: I have no idea, this isn’t mine.
Mom: How did it come in the house? What are you upto?
She: That’s not mine. Why would I even bring that in the house?
Mom: You said you won’t bring that into the house. You didn’t say that you don’t use it.

She had no idea how to respond to that, she said that it’s not hers one more time and went back to getting ready. She doesn’t even remember if she curled the other lash, her only aim was to leave the house as soon as possible.

Ever since this has happened, she gets asked “When are you getting married?” at least once a day.

Oxford Golf Resort, Pune | Weekend getaways near Mumbai and Pune

Oxford Gold Resort recently invited me over to their resort in Pune. The resort is perfect for a weekend away or for a day trip. It is also a perfect place for group picnics or for corporate getaways. 

I saw a number of team building activities happening around and honestly, I wanted to go participate. They all looked so fun!

Getting to the place can be a little tricky, as there is a one slight left turn that you have to take to reach to the place, if you miss the left, you would have to go ahead and take a U turn later. The locals are a little confused about the whereabouts of the place even though it is quite easily accessible ( you would know what I am talking about when you get there. I still don’t understand how I was not able to figure the way out myself. It is really easy. ) anyway, I suggest you turn on your GPS when you are closer to the place.

After the welcome drink, we headed to Ox Adventures, which is a two minute drive away from the resort, youll see it when you are on your way to the resort. They have a ton of things to do here, rock climbing, rappelling, horse riding, camping, bon fire facilities, hammocks, barbeque facilities. I suggest you confirm about the facilities available before you plan the trip.

The lunch was a good spread and honestly it took us around two hours to finish the 4 course meal.

We did try out hand at Golf, initially I was pathetic at it but I assume I picked up on it pretty quick.

They do facilities for you to stay the night but can also work as a one day trip.

They also offer Golf Coaching, if you want to pick up a new hobby or sport, this might just be the one for you.

World Streat Food, Nariman Point – Review

The place specialises in serving food from all around the world, it was a perfect pick for a quick office team lunch as it allowed all of us to pick a cuisine that we liked.

We started off with Tortilla Bean Soup which was nice but nothing extra ordinary.

We then had some Sui Mui Dumpling and Maaru Fritters. I love dumplings and thus we had to order some, they were nice and yum. The Fritters however let me down, they were just Batata Bhaji! I am not over exaggerating, that’s what they were. They would have possibly gotten the Bhaji packed from the roadside Vadapav Wala and served us for 50times the cost. This dish did let me down.

The Green Thai Curry was again very delicious, although a little too spicy for my palate but none the less, yummy! I am a little concerned about the portions here; it may not be enough for two if you are supper hungry. During this visit however, I was starving and thus finished the whole thing on my own.

We had the Parisian Chocolate Fondant and Austrian Sachert Orte which again were strictly average.

Damage: INR 2048/-

Innisfree Cushion Foundation – Review

I love it when products are customizable according to your likings and desires. Although, along with being pretty, I also expect it to do its job. That’s exactly what Innisfree’s new Cushion Foundation does.

It comes in two variants, water based and long wear. They both do exactly what they say. The long wear is for days when you are going to have a long day and don’t have time to keep touching up. The water base is for a more casual, effortless look.

The long wear cushion helps create smooth and bright skin that is not smudged by sweat and sebum. Water glow helps create a moisturized and radiant look.

The foundation comes in a compact like packaging. The packaging is completely customizable, you choose the foundation according to your needs, you pick your shade, the box’s colour/design and applicator to go along with it.  each of these above things area sold separately as well, so in case you just need to replace any one of the element, then you can do so and pay for just that and not the entire product.

I got the long wear one and have used it a couple of time and love the effect. It gives me a nice dewy effect all day long. I did touch up once with my compact but that was it. It gives medium coverage, so if you want to hide all your flaws, you may need a second coat or concealer. I don’t use foundation on daily basis so I have kept this one for when I have to attend events or go out.

Innisfree claims that the long wear foundation lasts for 12 hours and has SPF of 50+ along with PA+++.

The products include Jeju and green tea extracts which benefits the skin.

It retails for around INR 3000/- the prices fluctuate online but I suggest you visit the store so that you can pick your right shade and get a customized packaging.

LYN #BombayCollection - Review

I love Mumbai and anything that is related to Mumbai gets me really excited. I was so kicked when LYN asked me to check out their new #BombayCollection

The collection has a mix of matte, glossy, glitter and chrome finish nail paint. I visited the Juice Nail Art Studio in Khar and they made this cute little taxi on my nail. I loved it.

The colours are vibrant and have a cool tone to them. The names of the shades are also very Mumbai-ish.

They are also long lasting; they lasted on my nails for about 5 days before starting to chip. You do need to apply at least three coats to make sure that you get the right shade on your nails.

The nail paint retails for ₹350/- for 12ml of product.

You can buy the nail paints online as well,

Lakme Eyeconic Curling Mascara in Blue – Review

I am not very good when it comes to experimenting with my makeup, I honestly believe that I should stick to the basics. Not because I don’t like experimenting but because I think I won’t do a good job achieving the look. However, when I learnt about Lakme’s Eyeconic Curling Mascara in Blue! I knew I had to get it.

I have used the mascara a couple of times now. I expected it to be super intense blue which it is not, you need to apply at least 2-3 coats for the colour to pop. I generally don’t like applying multiple quotes of mascara so I has let it down a little bit, I still do love it though. The product is not waterproof but I did cry a little bit once when I had applied it and it didn’t run down my cheeks, so I assume it does stay on for a while.

The wand and packaging is in the standard Eyeconic mascara style. The wand does little to add volume to your eyelashes but it does do a good job curling it. The wand did impress me a little, it separates the lashes perfectly and it is easier to coat every lash. If you are using fake eye lashes then this product should do wonders.

It retails for ₹350/- for 9ml of product

PizzaVito, CBD Belapur, Navi Mumbai – Review

Went to this place on a Monday afternoon, late afternoon actually. I guess that explains why it was empty. Got a corner table for myself. The place is spacious with enough number of tables and good natural light.

I asked for sweet lime soda, they didn’t have that so the waiter recommended I opt for the lemon mint mocktail. I hesitated but he asked to give it a try and incase I don’t like it he would not charge me for that. I won’t say I loved it but it was not bad. We also tried their Kokum Juice and it was delicious.
We opted for their stuffed pizza; it is like a sandwich pizza. You eat it like a sandwich as well. 

Although I am not really fond of spicy food, this pizza was sweet for my palate. I would have preferred it to be a little spicier. The pizza was still really yum and filling. I am glad I didn’t order for any sides as I am sure I wouldn’t have been able to finish it.

The waiter double checked if I had liked the mocktail before printing the bill, he said that he wouldn’t charge me if I have not liked it.

The service was nice; the staff was alert and welcoming.
