About ASKME
It is an initiative of GetIt Infoservices Pvt. who have launched an e-commerce android based application. 
You can have a look at the app details on Google Playstore link below:




What I like? 
1) As it rightly claims to be , its like everything under one roof. 
2) Its as responsive as Just Dial, which until now was the only go to option for many options. But finally did we just get a better option ? I guess the initial answer maybe yes, but we got to wait and watch who wins the eventual battle

3) If am lazy to navigate I end up dialing its easily remembered No. of . 0444-444-4444 ( Ten times 4 ) very convenient.

4) Top of mind, I guess the huge advertising budgets help right.

5) I personally think the web site is much better than the app. Definitely a better UI.

6) There are a lot of free deals. 




What I didnt like? 
- It is at a nascent stage and one can add more functionality. 

- It is only Android friendly application.  

- It is good to post ads. There need to update the database and make it more exhaustive.

- A user friendly interface although it could have been more convenient

The Deltin Life in Daman

The Deltin Life in Daman

There is nothing like getting away from mundane Mumbai rains, break free from the idiosyncrasies of this city and calm down the frayed nerves. A magnificent room with a picturesque view and being soothed by a cool breeze by the pool is all I could ask for. The weekend had it all from gourmet cuisine, culinary escapades, bar-tending session, rejuvenating spa, splendid gym, great people, unique poolside to lavish hospitality. 
Culinary Marvels
Sushi making session by Masterchef
Spick and span bar and flavour infused alcohol 
The magnificent pool area in the night
Girls just wanna have fun!
I am dying to go back here! 
Selfie Time 
A convivial evening spent with awesome people 
And I cannot do without my workout wherever I go. It completes my day! 



All of us would have heard about the Deltin property in Goa. Daman which is about 4 hours from Mumbai has come up with the largest luxury hotel. It comes with all the facilities that you could ask for. 

About Deltin Hotel
Deltin Group is India’s first gaming and hospitality brand. The Deltin property in Daman is 176-suite hotel across 2 floors which are equipped with all the top notch facilities. It is a perfect getaway for vacationers and gamers. It is one of the integrated resorts between Mumbai and Delhi and is also an ideal destination for big fat Indian weddings. 
The interiors sport a casino theme everywhere including the chandleries and even the room key.

What I like? 
- Great rooms with picturesque view and all sorts of complementary amenities. 
- The impeccable hospitality and immaculate service
- All sorts of recreational facilities including outdoor pool, fitness center and full service spa. 
- The bartending session was splendid with innovative cocktails overflowing throughout the evening. 

What I didn’t like? 
- They had only few local brands of alcohol and wine was not that great. 
- They are not licensed as a five start property and Casino is not yet open to the guests. It is still in process. 




My Verdict: Every moment is an enriching experience. Every nook has been designed to stimulate and enlighten your day.

Look Of The Day - Statement Necklace

Look Of The Day - Statement Necklace

She is dynamic and soft. She is a happy girl who loves to spread happiness through the clothes that she wears. She is happy in her cocoon. Her clothes capture her mood. They are a weapon of empowerment. She can transform her self at various stages of life and understands the depravities of life. She craves for the rawness. She stands with the bare soul and lets down her guard. She finds solace in her tea. Her lipstick is an expression of power. 
Love has a way of creeping into the soul, making you forget time and forgive life and wish that things would just stay like this forever. And she takes a leap of faith and lives in her own deluded world.

Kebabs and Kurries - Culinary Delights

Kebabs and Kurries - Culinary Delights 

My life in Mumbai has always been on the move. The traffic snarls, rains and idiosyncrasies of this city really make you tough and change you as a person over the years. Well, lets just take the life as it comes. 
There is nothing like indulging in a luxury cuisine and savoring the delicacies to soothe the grumpy olfactory nerves. We often have this preconceived notion of that standalone restaurants serving better food than 5 star hotel. Kebabs and Kurries at ITC Parel has already got rave reviews and has been doing the rounds ever since its inception. I have been to ITC Sonar Bangla in Kolkata also and this Luxury Hotel in Mumbai didnt fail to entice me. 
We went on a Wednesday night and the place was pretty packed. The chef and the Food and Bevarage Manager Saurabh joined us and guided us through an exhaustive list of menu. The place caters to a lot of vegeterian clientele. 
I usually look forward to starters as Indian curries are usually heavy and deprived of nutrition. We started with mutton and it was perhaps the juiciest piece of meat you could get your teeth on. We could feel the goodness pervade our senses. 
The star of the evening was 'King of Kebabs' marinated in besan instead of hung curd which is normally used. It is perfect for the lactose intolerant and healthiest of all. The after taste is smoky with a tinge of onions. 
Coming to the mains, they stuck to the basics. We ordered Kalinga Machli which was okay. It was cooked to perfection and gets its zip from mustard. The ‘Daakhni Saag’ was to die for. The chef left us dumbstruck when we were served whole wheat naans after my ramblings about being health conscious. 
I was in no mood for a sweet splurge and extra calories. My friend had a kulfi and could not stop talking about it. I totally vouch for Indian traditional desserts
other than desserts in chocolates. 

King of Kebabs marinated in besan instead of hung curd for those who avoid dairy or are lactose intolerant. 
Mutton - The juiciest piece of meat you could get your teeth on
Kalinga Machli - Fish marinated with turmeric and simmered in mustard paste with red chilli, cumin seeds and coriander stems, finished with a hint of turmeric
Tali Subz Machli - Fish fillet marinated in a mix of fresh ginger, green chillies and coriander leaves, coated with bread crumbs and cooked on a tawa. 
Dakhni Saag - Subtle blend of spinach, tomatoes, dill leaves tempered with garlic and red chili. 


What I like? 
- The succulent kebabs
-  Impeccable hospitality and immaculate service. 
- I have always been against white breads and whole wheat naans just won  the brownie points. 

What I didn’t like? 
- Of course not that pocket friendly! One can indulge in occassionally and take expat friends to savor the Indian food. 

ADDRess:
ITC Grand Central, 287, Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar Road, Parel, Mumbai

Price:
Rs. 1950 + taxes (without alcohol)
Rs. 2300 + taxes (with alcohol)


Awaiting your valuable comments

Instagram + Life in Pictures
I wish I could make time to blog every single day but I doubt that will happen. I am not in a mood to write much today. Let the pictures do the talking. Here take a sneak peak into some of my Instagram posts. I am off to Daman this weekend for a monsoon getaway and cannot wait to unwind and beat the blues. XOXO :)

In the above picture I am wearing PJ pants by ZARA and black top by MANGO and gladiator sandals by Forever 21. I love these super comfy pants in tropical prints. I have not got the time to do outfit posts and go out for a shoot. 
I swear by these raw juices by Raw Pressery. They are 100% natural. I usually have fruits in the morning or once in a while pre or post workout. They are sugar and high in carbs. So make sure you have these juices at right time of the day. 
My aphrodisiac packed with antioxidants! Need I say more? 
Post workout dinner peri peri grilled chicken with veggies at Smoke House Deli
The best nutrition bars in the world with no added sugar. Someone please get me more! 

 Stay tuned! XOXO.
