May 23, 2018
Orient_FaridabadPlant10

There are a lot of things that we interact with each and every day, be it the smallest of things like our toothbrush or bigger, more obvious things like our car or your bike! But have you ever noticed how much time you spend interacting with your fan? Well, it can almost be between 14-20 hours in a day, maybe, even more! Doesn’t that number itself prove what an important place a fan holds in our lives? I understand that when I say “fan”, the first thing that comes to your mind is the fan that is attached to your ceiling, isn’t it? But do you realize that you are literally surrounded more than one type of fan? I am sure that almost every one of you has an exhaust fan in his/her bathroom/kitchen, or maybe even a pedestal or table fan in your surrounding area! For an interesting experiential, I had the honor of visiting the manufacturing facility of Orient Electric in Faridabad, and boy, what an amazing experience it was! Right from the room the bloggers were assembled in, which displayed some of the best ceiling, pedestal and wall fans that Orient Electric has been synonymously known for, to the factory tour that we were given with such precision, the day, was well worth the effort of travelling all the way to Faridabad. Did you know that Orient has been around for more than 7 decades? And from being the biggest manufacturers of fans in the country to being able to boast about the fact that they have over 60% shares in the export market, Orient, till this day has maintained its integrity and work ethic flawlessly. Orient also happens to be the 1st choice when it comes to supplying of fans even in various Government Office bodies in India. They also have …

‘Dine Like Royals’ at K3 JW Marriott Aerocity

March 22, 2018
DineLikeRoyals

Have you ever fancied being able to dine like royalty? What is the first thing that pops into your mind when I say ‘Dine Like Royals’? Is it lush and rich interiors and gold trimmed china to feast on? Have you ever thought that the term could mean so much more than just materialistic glamour? Well, K3 JW Marriott is amazingly brilliant at proving the same! A feast fit for royalty is what I was showered with when I decided to step into this wonderful paradise! This inspiring concept by the K3 JW Marriott brings together the rich cuisine of Rampur, right from the kitchens of the Nawabs! Having teemed up with 3rd generation cooks from the royal kitchen itself, the 11-day festival is a paradise for anyone and everyone who wants to explore the rich cuisine of Rampur in its most authentic form! Get ready to let your taste buds experience the best food one can be offered and allow yourself to be lulled into a food coma while you are here!

Drinks I started my meal off with the Aam Ras and Rampur Punch and I could not have been happier about the choice I made!

ADVANCED ORIENT AEROSTORM FAN- AN UNFORGETTABLE FLIGHT

March 5, 2018
Aerostorm_Header

I believe, that your personal style doesn’t just reflect on the clothing you wear. Personal style is very much defined by how you decorate your personal space as well. Whether you like to add the vibrancy of kitsch to your furniture, or like keeping the décor gold-luxe, it’s all about defining what aesthetics please your taste. Among all the elements of a room, ceiling fans play a pivotal role given their central position on top. AEROSTORM by Orient Electric is the perfect blend of style and modern technology as it meets both my creative pre-conditions and also the need for a powerful yet quiet ceiling fan. The creators of AeroStorm have truly gone out of the way to give us an enchanting fan whose blades are inspired from modern Aircrafts! Yes, the one of a kind winglet technology of these fans turns into the wings of aircrafts. This facilitates higher air thrust spanning as much as 300 CMM (Cubic metres per minute) unlike other fans which focus on a small area below. It gets embarrassing when you have guests over and the fans make noise disrupting all the merriment. Even when it is time for some leisure reading, noisy fans play spoilsport. I can now breathe a sigh of relief as Aeroquiet has brought an innovative solution to this problem. The Advanced 3D aerodynamic profiled blade design let the fan work without any noise. While the 18 Pole heavy Motor with double ball ensures that the fan is long lasting. Till now the role of fans in improving the décor of a room has been slightly under-rated. But the Aeroseries range of fans is going to make people stop and take notice of what a fan is capable of doing. These fans can be an essential addition to the interior …

Aquafina Vitamin Splash – The Drink Of Entrepreneurs

December 7, 2017
Aquafina-Vitamin-Splash12-2

“I’m feeling exhausted and have a flight to catch followed by this packed Chennai itinerary lined up”, said me in bewilderment to my bff who is an expert in nutrition and healthy eating. She very calmly smiled on the other side of the phone, telling me to dial up my local Kirana store and ask for Aquafina Vitamin Splash. “Well, what’s that? Are you talking about the bottled Aquafina water?”, I asked. And that’s when I was introduced to the Aquafina Vitamin Splash range which is not just your ordinary drinking water or a sugar laced refreshing drink, but much better and more than that! It’s a produce of Aquafina under the parent company PepsiCo. Being a constant traveller, I really do need to keep a check on my health, with especially staying hydrated throughout. But sometimes, just a bottle of regular water is not enough to meet body requirements. A bottle of water can surely keep our body content with hydration, but cannot replace the electrolyte content lost along with many other vitamins and minerals that are a necessity on a daily basis. And this is where the Aquafina Vitamin Splash comes to the rescue! These travel friendly bottled up concoctions aren’t just pretty to look at, but taste extremely good too! But don’t take me for the sort who goes by how good something looks! This good looking duo flavoured range is extremely healthy too. Tried and tested on my 1.5 week long escapade to Chennai-Pondicherry! Even when I was being a beach bum and felt extremely derated because of the sun and the salty breeze of the sea, just a few sips of  this wonder potion had me sorted! The Aquafina Vitamin Splash comes in two wonderfully delectable flavours: the Raspberry Mint & Kiwi Lime! Both of …

Diwali With Select Citywalk Delhi

Knock, knock, Diwali is here! Everyone at home is high on energy during the pre-Diwali days. There is so much to be cleaned, to be decorated and so much to prepare for! Diwali shopping is always in order, and I look no further than Select CITYWALK for any of my shopping needs. A brand that has become synonymous with high-quality luxury products across various categories is my go-to one-stop shop! The recent trip to the shopping center in Saket was all about bringing in some stunning décor before the big Diwali bash at home. My first stop was Oma. I absolutely love – LOVE the collection there! Their exquisite collections of tealight candle holders and candlesticks are the perfect additions to the dinner table. You may even deck up the patio using them.   The next place I visited was Le Cruset. The place stole my heart with its range of stainless steel cookware and colorful bakeware. Your hands just itch to pick them up as you browse through the collection on display. This time it was about picking up some warm-colored casseroles and serving trays. There was going to be a lot of food up for grabs at the party and you want it to look picture perfect. Diwali shopping at Select CITYWALK is always a lot of fun but what made it all the more special was that they have just completed an amazing 10 years! That is 10 years of incredible shopping experience for Delhi. To celebrate their 10th birthday, Select CITYWALK decided to do something special and heartwarming. Through their initiative, “Khushiyon ki Diwali”, they are fulfilling the wishes of 10 underprivileged kids. I read about one of them: Arpit’s wish was to watch a cricket match in the stadium with his friends. It was so …

Himalayan Orchard Pure Collaborates With Masaba Gupta

August 10, 2017
IMG_5860

If you’ve been spotting Himalayan Orchard Pure Flavoured water bottles in the supermarket, I’d suggest you grab all three flavours and give it a try! You won’t be disappointed. The flavours are refreshing, contain a very nominal ratio of sugar content and can be taken as a great post lunch/sugar-rush or evening on-the-rocks drink. Launched just recently, the Himalayan Orchard Pure flavoured water range has become a talk amongst food lovers and health-enthusiasts alike. Being a witness to the launch, I got to try these flavoured drinks first, which are entitled to change the algorithm of drinking healthy and feeling content at the same time. Did you know that Himalayan Drinking Water is actually collected, packaged and bottled from the Himalayas? Which means upon consumption, we get to drink the purest form of water available in India. Adding natural flavours to this, Himalaya Orchard Pure mineral water by NourishCo Beverages Ltd, is the latest to hit the ‘all natural products’ market. What caught my attention is that it is bottled in easy to carry containers. Another point that I liked was that this water is supposed to contain all the natural minerals found in water naturally, and many of the others added to it. Speaking about myself, I have a really intense sweeth tooth. Which means, I cannot do without drinking something sweet on a daily basis. Himalayan Orchard Pure Mineral Water not only provides a sweet fruity flavour to the drink, but the purest collection of water ensures my body staying hydrated at all times as well! Himalayan Mineral water has enhanced the flavour of its water with three different flavours like Peach, Apple and Strawberry. So, now you have naturally flavoured drinking water. This water is available at just Rs 55 for a bottle of 500 ml in in …
