Home Chef, Dadar - Review

We went to HomeChef  the other day, ordered kung fu style pasta, a chicken burger, a cheese French fries something burger, an Oreo shake and a chocolate pastry. I wouldn’t say the food was amazingly delicious but it was worth the money. We had to wait for around 20minutes to get a table so I would suggest that you go there a little earlier or be ready to wait for sometime. They have a variety of things and also have lots of offers going on throughout the week, so no matter when you go you can avail them. The cakes and pastries are amazing and I strongly recommend them.

I also like the entire atmosphere there. They generally have a good song playing. A fellow diner was celebrating her birthday, so they played the birthday song and everyone clapped and wished her. Such a cute little thing that was!

Tuk Tuk Tuk, Dadar

I had been eyeing this small little eatery near Shivaji Park for quite some time now and finally recently I paid it a visit. The place has quirky interior which I really liked. Although it’s small they still have managed the space well.

They have a lot of snack items and desserts are amazing too! We ordered one Chicken Puff, one Iced Tea,  One Chicken Arrabiata and for dessert we settled for Choco Rocco and Swiss Roll.

The food was delicious, although nothing extraordinary but definitely worth the money. The place is frequented by college students and residents from the nearby area generally get a takeout as there isn’t enough room for a larger party.

Easy Monsoon Tips!

Apps - Apps can come in handy big time during this weather. Traffic apps can help you gauge how much traffic to expect and thus leave accordingly and weather apps help understand the weather for the rest of the day so you can pick your clothes accordingly.

Sunscreen – Most of us stop using sunscreens during monsoon thinking it’s not needed as we are not exposed to direct sunlight much but, sunscreen is equally important! Do not skip it!!!

Waxing, Pedicure and Manicure –  We attract a lot of germs and dirt during this weather. Mani-Pedi helps keep all that at bay.

Lukewarm Water Is Your Best Friend - Always wash your face, hands and feet as soon as you reach your home with lukewarm water. This makes you feel refreshed and stay healthy.

Hydrate – We drink a lot of water during summer, continue drinking plenty of water in this season as it is important to keep your body hydrated all the time.

Gadget Tip – If water seeps into your phone or any other gadget then just take a container, fill it with uncooked rice and place your gadget in that for 2-3 days. This will absorb all the moisture and your gadget should work fine.

Aerosoles footwear!

I cringe at the thought of formal shoes. They used to always look so old school and not to forget used to be extremely uncomfortable. I wanted something that gave me the feel of casual shoes and yet fit in perfectly with my formal wear. I stumbled upon Aerosoles and found out that they are made of light leather thus making it light and comfortable. It literally makes me feel like I am wearing flip-flops but really are proper formal shoes!

The shoes are built from the Bottom Up. Diamond Pattern solesacts as the base for our comfort .They develop our own unique construction ‘Stitch and Turn’ – and the concept of stitch and turn is that upper is stitched directly to the bottom... to create the shoes that offers ultimate comfort and Flexibility. The comfort once only found in casual shoes can now be found in everything dress Pumps to boots to sandals. Slip into a pair of Aerosoles and watch what happens. There is more spring in your step, more color in your life, simply stated more comfort. Aerosoles offers a full range of styles that are made from the softest leathers and unique constructions. The comfort once found only in casual shoes can now be found in everything from dress, pumps, boots and sandals.

What I like about these shoes is that they are so light and comfortable that even when I wear it for an entire day they don’t hurt my feet.  They are comfortable for the hectic life that we live and running around the town in these is super comfy.

They also look great with all kinds of outfits; you can team it up with jeans for a casual look as well as with formals to keep your feet from hurting. They also have a variety of colors to choose from so you don’t have to worry about it not going with your outfit. They even look fabulous with A- line skirts, and obviously go well with trousers.

They also have a good collection of casual shoes. I think I’ll buy myself one from that range as well. Who doesn't like comfortable footwear right?

Get Fit with GOQii – Week 1

Getting fit and looking fabulous is a dream that we all have but for some of us achieving that dream is a little bit harder than others, I am one those few for whom it’s super difficult. That dream almost turns into a nightmare. I wanted to lose some weight and get fit for quite some time now, who doesn’t want to look amazing and make those heads turn right? But somehow I lacked motivation; I gave up on me a lot of times.

I kept doing some exercises that I read about online or saw on YouTube, did some diet which friends suggested etc but nothing really helped me. A reality check happened when earlier this week during my morning walk, I fainted. That’s when I realized that I need someone to guide me through this and I can’t do this on my own.

Going to the gym etc was something that I wasn’t very fond of; I needed a better healthy lifestyle and not 2 hours at the gym every day. I researched online and found GOQii and it completely fit my bill.
I shot them a mail asking for details and was surprised how quick they were with the response. I was impressed. I immediately signed up for a 3 months program and decided to do a Fitness Series tracking the progress on my blog.

They sent me the activation code and helped me set up the app so that I could start immediately. I was asked to fill up a form regarding my lifestyle, food patterns and medical history. Once all that was done a coach was assigned to me who will coach me via the app, you can decide the intensity of the program too from Easy going to Strict. I chose Easy Going.

The coach later called me after going through my form and told me the dos and don’ts keeping in mind my lifestyle, food patterns and likes and dislikes. She even said that if I am not comfortable with any of the changes then I should let her know immediately so that she could give me other options.

She stressed on the part that this is not a strict diet or regime. This is process of molding myself into a better healthy lifestyle rather than making harsh changes in my lifestyle which would be difficult for me to keep up with. She also explained why she is making certain changes and how it is going to help me. Soon after the chat, I received the meal plan and I was happy to see that she had made it in a way that I could easily manage within my time and my mean habits.

I received the band the very next day and again I was impressed by how quick the service is. The band is light so I don’t think it would bother. I chose the black one as I feel it would just go with my daily outfits.
I am excited about this new little thing in my life J will keep you posted! :D
