December 2016 Fab Bag Review

December 2016 Fab Bag Review:

I know that it is too late to publish December 2016 fab bag review. I am really sorry for it. It is the effect of Cyclone 'Vardhah' which hit Chennai quite badly last week.

Actually, I was given a choice to choose the fab bag and it is me who chose purple pouch. So, if you are eligible to choose the fab bag, you can try some other options if you want.

Terra Chips Review

Do you like to eat a full packet of chips but afraid of the long listing of unknown ingredients? Are you someone who worry about the oils that are being used in the chips you would like to indulge? You might need to try the all-new Terra Chips. We had a small get-together at home and the Terra Chips was the one that made it hit. I had served 3 different flavors of Terra chips - Orginal, Mediterranean, and Blues. Everyone couldn't stop indulging their favorite flavor and few of them reserved their favorite flavor in a bowl while tasting the other flavors.

DSC_1317 

After looking at the ingredients, all were happy to see such a short list of ingredients with no artificial flavor and artificial colors used. If it sounds interesting to you too, read the post to know more about Terra Chips.


Product Highlights:



  • A ready-to-eat savory originated from the USA.
  • Made with real vegetables
  • Made with Non-GMO ingredients
  • No artificial flavors
  • No preservatives
  • Unique and diverse root vegetables from a select group of farmers
  • Over 20 different varieties and flavors
  • Gluten free
  • FSSAI certified


Terra Chips Review:


Terra chips are slightly curly and look beautiful. The real vegetables that are used do not fail to adorn the chips with their beautiful color. Even though the chips are deep-fried, they are neither oily nor greasy. None of us had a feeling of eating a deep-fried snack. The expeller pressed oil might be the reason. Except the blues flavor, other chips do not make your tummy feel full easily. You have to force yourself to stop. Terra Chips Blues are little bit heavier than the original and mediterranean flavors.

Now let us have a look at the 3 different flavors that I got to taste from Terra Chips.



Terra Chips Original:

With a perfect touch of sea salt, they just taste right. You get to enjoy the original flavor of each and every root vegetable that is used with just a hint of sea salt. This original flavor comes in a combination of beautiful colors which can add a royal touch when served in parties. They have a hint of sweetness and hint of salt. They are bit thicker yet crunchy. It can be served as dipping chips too. I like this original flavor than anything else and now a fan of this original flavor.

DSC_1341  

Ingredients: 



  • A seasonal mix of root vegetables like Parsnip, Taro, Sweet Potato, Yuca, and Batata. 
  • Expeller pressed canola oil and/or safflower oil and/or sunflower oil
  • Sea salt
  • Beet Juice concentrate for color
  • Permitted natural color

DSC_1319 


Terra Chips Mediterranean:

It is same as the original flavor when it comes to ingredients but topped up with exotic herbs and a hint of lemon. They have a hint of sweetness and hint of salt. They are bit thicker yet crunchy. It can be served as dipping chips too. I am not crazy about this flavor but my hubby and son like this flavor more than anything else.

Pulli Kolangal Collections - Small kolam with dots - Rangoli designs with dots images - Pictures:

Kolam is one of the traditional practices mostly followed by south Indians. They consider it to be auspicious because they believe that these patterns drawn in front of the house brings Goddess Lakshmi to the house and also gives a decorative welcome to the house. Actually, the truth behind drawing these geometrical patterns was that they are drawn using rice flour and this feeds the ants and other small living beings wandering outside. The Hindus considered this as a good sign. This was one of the favorite hobbies for women in those days as they increased their creative thinking skills.

#DoTheDifficult to achieve your Wellness Goals

How many promises you have made in the beginning of 2016? How many you have actually kept? How many you are going to carry over to the next year?

Promises such as buying a new phone or TV can be postponed but not promises on health. We think that we do not have enough time and convince ourselves for not keeping up the promises. If you can push yourself to devote some time, you can easily keep up your promises.

One such promise I made to myself in the year of 2015 was fitness. I got a partner for walking and gym. But she left very soon due to her personal commitments. I stopped going to the gym just one month after that as I got bored to go alone.

Then I started GM diet, but stopped it as I could not push myself even though I had done before. Then I started doing yoga. Initially it was tough to follow a routine, but I did giving up. I started doing Surya Namaskar 5-6 times a day along with few meditations. I replaced white sugar with jaggery whenever possible. My stamina started increasing day by day and I thought to include some high intensity workouts too. I started doing Bikini Body Mommy Challenge 5.0, a 90 day fitness program. It was really difficult to do the workout initially.

I also had to go through some unexpected issues like impacted wisdom tooth surgical removal, a ligament injury due to twisted ankle, smashed finger in a door and so on. Everything happened unexpectedly and they were completely out of my control. So, I had to go through the pains. Still, I resumed doing the workouts as soon as I got recovered. I have already completed 66 days of this program even though I took multiple breaks.

Initially I was feeling lazy to do it. Nowadays, I feel lazy if I am not doing it. So, I am doing the workouts as the first thing after sending my kid to school. I started including Leslie or Jessicca Smith walking workouts too.

I have already started great results. My stamina has increased so much. I am able to be active throughout the day. I am able to see weight loss too.


Have you seen the latest ad titled #DoTheDifficult from ICICI Lombard? It shows how a father is running in the snow. He motives himself to keep the promise he made to daughter to be fit and healthy.


The ad is really inspiring, engaging and motivating for all the people who are feeling difficult to keep their promises. When I saw it, I felt emotional as I am going through the same. I am pushing myself everyday as I promised myself to be fit. The results are too good.

ICICI Lombard has taken up the task of inspiring the individual  to take care of their fitness and well-being through this ad.

ICICI Lombard provides wellness benefits in their health insurance. With their wellness program, you will be rewarded points for your healthy behavior.

What their wellness program entails?

1. Medical, preventive and online health risk assessment.

2. Wellness points will be rewarded if the individual will participate in marathon, swimathon, cyclothon or in any other sporting event.

3. Customers can avail of yoga and gym reimbursements, nutrition consultation, sports and fitness therapy as part of ICICI Lombard's health insurance offerings. Remuneration of the membership cost is according to the coverage percentage offered in plan.


What are the promises you have made so far? Some of you might have promised to lose weight for your loved one. Some of you might have promised to quit junk food, soft drinks and so on. Giving up a habit or stretching yourself for something is not something easy. It is quite difficult. But you won't mind doing the difficult thing if it is for you or your loved ones.

How to make French Fries at home, French Fries Recipe on Stove Top, Tawa, Without Deep Frying, Without Oven



This is the third time I make French Fries at home. I had already tried to make homemade french fries 2 times before. Though I managed to make some tasty homemade french fries without deep frying in the first attempt with boiling and toasting, I failed to do in the second attempt as I tried to completely bake them without oven as I bake cake without oven. So, I stick to boiling and toasting when I make french fries at home.

Lehenga Blouse Designs with images - Half Saree Blouse Designs Blouse:



Hello, Peeps. Being in India, Don’t we all adore ourselves in Sarees and Half-Sarees also known as lehengas in today's trend? Definitely! Aren’t we right? Well, but that is not simple. We aren't used to wearing them often. Many wouldn't even have an idea on how to wear a saree but lehenga are quite simple when compared. We, for sure will rock all the traditional occasions in these ethnic attires. And the process behind it is a little lengthy that only we know ;) 

Lehenga or Lehnga also called as Ghagra, Chaniya  is basically a full ankle-length skirt that is embroidered and pleated. Lehenga is being used only for festivals and functions like wedding functions as most of the lehenga designs are heavy with different works like embroidery work, zari work, patch work, sequins work, artificial glass work. Lehenga is worn as the bottom portion for Gagra choli or Langa Voni. Gagra Choli is nothing but a combination outfit of a Lehenga, tight Choli and dupatta. It is the most preferred festive attire in India nowadays. 


Names of Lehenga or Lehnga in different Indian Languages:


Ghagra -  Hindi

Ghagra -  Urdu
Ghagra - Punjabi
Ghagra - Gujarati 
Ghagra - Kashmiri 
Pavadai - Tamil
Lacha - Malayalam 
Langa - Telugu 
Langa - Kannada

Gota Patti is one of the popular lehenga types that is picked for festivals, weddings and  other functions.To pick out one for an occasion, We confuse ourselves to choose it by considering various factors! The material on which would go well with our body type and shape, those that is of ease to carry around that whole day, the colour combination that will make us look fabulous and of course special and unique design to be highlighted among the crowd. 


Lehengas come in a lot of fabrics like cotton, silk, georgette, net, crepe, satin, chiffon, brocade and khadi. As lehenga is seen as party wear, silk is the most preferred fabric for making lehenga. When it comes to lehenga, options are unlimited. Women even have the choice of customization of lehnga. As they are available in different colours, patterns, fabrics, work, lehengas are the most preferred wedding attire by brides, especially for wedding receptions. Not only the brides, even their close friends, family members, relatives would love to flaunt in lehengas during wedding receptions.

In olden days, only the dupatta was given more importance and women made sure that it has a heavy work. Mostly the lehenga and choli were kept simple with least or no work. This outfit was their everyday wear. But nowadays, lehenga and choli are given more important whereas dupatta stays simple.

Even after choosing by sorting out all these, the lehenga blouse design is yet another major thought in all our minds. There are many ready made blouses available but the key on the fantastic and awesome look lies in getting the blouse stitched perfectly. As the blouse of the saree can transform the entire look of the saree so effortlessly. Here we help you to resolve that confusion and to give you an idea on many available blouse designs that are on the rise in the market.

Best Hair Oil for Hair Growth

Best Hair Growth Oil for Hair Growth in India:


Hair fall has become a common problem due to different reasons. Insufficient maintenance, poor diet, poor lifestyle, environmental influence are few of the many reasons that affect the health of your hair. Like every other part of our human body, hair needs proper nutrition to stay healthy and shiny. There should be a balance between the intake and external care when it comes to hair. Without proper diet, the hair growth cannot be controlled by just external application of any hair oil. Without proper external products and maintenance, hair growth cannot be controlled by just intake of foods. Even if you take a good amount of almonds, curry leaves, amla, sesame seeds etc, the hair growth will not be good if you do not apply oil, regularly or if you do not do proper combing. So, if there is a proper nutrition, hair and right products used, hair fall can be highly controlled and a good amount hair growth can be expected.

Easy and Simple Rangoli Designs for home, housewarming and competitions

Easy and Simple Rangoli Designs for home, housewarming, and competitions:

Though most of the women do not have opportunities to draw rangoli daily due to their time constraint, rangoli still takes a sweet corner in every woman's heart. Be it celebrations, festivals, functions like housewarming, college symposiums, conferences, competitions or any special occasions, women take the pride to draw beautiful rangolis.  Time has changed and rangolis are not being drawn regularly in any home. But still, they are alive during special occasions.

Before going through the rangoli designs, let us see a simple checklist that will be helpful for you.

The first thing you have to do is choosing the right rangoli design for you. You need to keep the space constraints, timing constraints, and color availability in mind before choosing your rangoli design. Then, you can proceed with choosing the rangoli design that satisfies most of your requirements even if you not all.  You can even choose 3-4 designs initially. Then you can choose the final one at last.

Try drawing this in a paper. Yes, if you are a beginner, you must try drawing it on a paper before you jump directly in the drawing. If you cannot draw neatly in a paper, drop that design and try another design. If you find the rangoli design is difficult to be drawn even in paper, you cannot draw easily on the floor. Now, you can shortlist 2-3 designs based on your choice and confidence level.

Go for a shopping to buy the colors. If you are already having few color powders at home, check them out. If you are going to draw rangoli for any special occasions, do not try to manage with few colors. If you want to draw eye-catching rangoli designs, you really have to take a pain of going outside for shopping color powders. Do not forget to buy a chalk piece.

Now, you are all set and ready for drawing rangoli on the floor. If you are drawing the rangoli design for home or housewarming, your pre-planning job is done. If that is not the case and you are going to draw rangoli designs for competitions, college or any other place, you have to pack all the colors carefully.

Here are easy and simple rangoli designs for home, housewarming, and competitions. All the rangolis added in this post are really simple and takes only a little time to draw. We have picked the rangolis carefully so that they are simple and easy enough for even a little girl. All the rangoli designs shown here need only less space, less time and do not need any expertise. If you have ever drawn a drawing in a paper, you can draw this with proper planning.

Simple Rangoli Design for Home, competitions, housewarming #1:



Rangoli chennai


This simple rangoli design can be drawn by anyone including kids. This is one of the best simple rangoli designs that you can do. The beauty of this simple rangoli design lies in the border given the yellow color flowers in a contrasting color. The green and yellow combination is mesmerizing and makes this simple rangoli design a very attractive one. Flowers in the middle makes this rangoli kolam gorgeous. I personally feel that if dark red roses are used along with the yellow color, this pookolam will look more attractive.

Choose this rangoli design to decorate the spaces which have less area to put rangoli. When you are lacking in time but want to draw rangoli, you can choose this easy rangoli design. This is a very easy rangoli design that can be easily drawn by kids too.

You can either decorate this rangoli kolam with flowers or rangoli powder. The choice is yours. But make sure that you choose contrasting colors to make it attractive. Also do not forget to draw borders in contrasting colors to make it absolutely stunning.


Simple Rangoli Design for Home, competitions, housewarming #2:



This rangoli takes place in the list of simple rangoli designs. You do not need to ignore this rangoli kolam as it looks smaller. With contrasting colors, this easy rangoli design looks very beautiful and make the place very attractive. It will surely attract everyone who sees this rangoli.

Do not choose dull colors for this rangoli as the kolam might not look brighter. Always choose bright and contrasting colors to draw this rangoli. Before drawing this rangoli, you need to plan ahead as you might need to buy more colors. Avoid using yellow color completely in this rangoli. You can use it in the center flower of this rangoli in case you are keen on using yellow color or a bigger fan of yellow color. But it is better to avoid it in the outer layer. As yellow color stands out and looks odd. It suppresses the beauty of other colors and the kolam might not look a well balanced in terms of color combination.


You can draw this either as a bigger rangoli design or a smaller rangoli design. If you have a pretty much larger space with no restriction in the space limit, you can draw this kolam as a bigger one. If you are limited by space, simply draw this a small rangoli kolam. All you need to do is resizing according to your space availability.

If you really want to make a bigger rangoli design for competitions, just draw another outer layer similar to the current outer layer.

If you are planning to draw this rangoli design for competitions or home, do not forget to buy contrasting colors that can make this kolam a stunning one.

This simple and easy rangoli design can be drawn with rangoli powder or flowers.

Simple Rangoli Design for Home, competitions, housewarming #3:




This simple rangoli design is an exclusive rangoli design for rangoli. Pongal pot is the main thing for Pongal and there can be no better rangoli without Pongal pot drawn. This easy rangoli kolam is very simple that can be drawn for Pongal rangoli competition even if you are a beginner. Just make sure that you draw a proper circle outside the pot. It is better to put this rangoli with chalk piece first if you are a beginner as you have to draw the circle very neat. Otherwise, the rangoli will not look good.

You can draw sugar canes on both the sides of the kolam to make it more attractive. I would suggest having the pink color as it is. It is better if that circle does not look either bright or dull. The pink used in the rangoli is apt for this easy rangoli design.

If you are looking for a rangoli design for competitions with any other theme, you can just replace the Pongal pot with any other drawing that is related to your theme. You can maintain the other layers as they are.


Simple Rangoli Design for Home, competitions, housewarming #4:




This is a peacock rangoli design that looks simple and neat. Even if you have space restrictions, you can choose this peacock rangoli as it can be drawn even in small spaces. The only difficulty with this peacock rangoli is the availability of peacock blue and green colors. The peacock blue might not be available everywhere and they are not easily accessible to everyone.

I highly recommend you to choose this peacock rangoli design for competitions but you should ensure that it has peacock blue color before choosing this rangoli design. If you use any other color instead of peacock blue, this peacock rangoli design will not look good.

Even though it is highly apt for competitions, this is an easy rangoli design for home too even on normal occasions. Though we might think that it is difficult to draw peacock rangoli design, this design is so simple and can be easily drawn by anyone.


Simple Rangoli Design for Home, competitions, housewarming #5:




This is one of the easy rangoli design for home. The highlight of this rangoli design lies in using the orange color which takes this simple rangoli design to an extraordinary one. The leaves are beautifully colored with green color. The number of outer layers is moderate and they are making the kolam more crowded. 

You have to start drawing this rangoli with a simple star. Then continue with the outer layers. Please note that there are no color restrictions to draw this rangoli. Any colors will do. But make sure that you replace the orange color only with some other bright color so that this simple rangoli looks elegant.

Easy Rangoli Design for Home, competitions, housewarming #6:



If you are in a real hurry, just choose this simple rangoli design blindly without any second thought. You can complete this rangoli in few minutes. It is really helpful when you do not have more time to spend in drawing a rangoli. There is nothing complicated in this rangoli.

Even kids with a little practice of drawing kolams can draw this rangoli in a jiffy. Choose some bright colors to transform this easy rangoli to an outstanding one. You do not need to be someone who draws rangoli frequently. Women who draw rangoli very rarely can pick this simple rangoli design as choosing big rangoli designs might land you in a painful job that can really make you sick most of the times.

You can choose this simple rangoli design for house warming in apartments. In apartments, you might not have more space to draw big rangolis. You can draw only small rangolis in front of flats. This rangoli can be picked in that case. It can also be chosen to draw in front of pooja shelves. It is suitable for even very small pooja rooms too. 


Easy Rangoli Design for Home, competitions, housewarming #7:



This simple rangoli design was sent by one of our readers as her entry of  rangoli design for competition. This easy rangoli looks beautiful with plenty of flowers. Though it can be colored with rangoli powders, this kolam looks very good when you decorate flowers. She has beautifully chosen the right combination of colors without much distraction. If the outer circle is drawn properly, this rangoli should look more beautiful. If you get red rose petals, do not ignore it. You can draw a layered border outside the white flowers. You can decorate the borders of the layers with bright red rose petals and decorate inside with white flowers. That will look more stunning. 

This rangoli can be drawn in the home, pooja rooms, in front of pooja shelves and lobbies. This rangoli is best for competitions held for Onam as you can simply place a lamp in the middle of the kolam. You can even place number of small lamps or diyas on the border of the outer circle. 

You can choose this rangoli to draw in colleges. When you conduct symposiums, festival celebrations, conferences, you can choose this rangoli design blindly to make the area colorful. You can draw this in the middle of a big hall too. 

Easy Rangoli Design for Home, competitions, housewarming #8:



This is an elegant and simple rangoli design that can be drawn by anyone. Flowers can be used in this rangoli but you can also use rangoli powder of different colors to color this easy rangoli. Do not try to save powder or flowers while coloring. It should be crowded so that it should look beautiful. Even in this rangoli design, you can use bright red flower petals to make it outstanding.

Ignore the outer circles if you do not like it. You can also ignore it if you have space constraints or time constraints.

You can choose this simple rangoli design for house warming, home, college conferences, college festivals, competitions, college symposiums etc. Drawing this rangoli in the middle of a big hall will be really attracting everyone.


Easy Rangoli Design for Home, competitions, housewarming #9:




This is another easy rangoli design for home, competitions, and house warming. The design is quite simple. Even the coloring is very simple and easy that can be done very quickly. You do not need any fancy colors to draw this kolam. Just ordinary colors will make the kolam look beautiful.

Do not miss drawing the lotus flowers outside the rangoli if you want the rangoli to be a bigger one. If you have a space constraint, just ignore drawing the flowers.

As this rangoli has been originally drawn for pongal, the person has drawn Pongal pot, sugar cane and also left a written message. You can do the same as per your theme. 

Easy Rangoli Design for Home, competitions, housewarming #10:



This is our last rangoli design in this series. This rangoli design looks graceful without much effort. A few simple layers are drawn very easily and then they are colored beautifully with simple colors.

As this rangoli was drawn for Karthikai deepam, small deepams have been drawn in the outer layer. You can also note that not too many colors were used in this rangoli. So, if you have only very few rangoli powders, you can choose this kolam. Even if you draw with repetitive colors, this rangoli will still look good. 

The bright and light blue colors used are very contrasting and make the colors more interesting. The pink color outer layer makes this rangoli look beautiful.

Importance of catching up the lost growth of your children

Mothers always tend to become panic even if their children catch cold. Although we know that it will take 7 days to get rid of the cold, we constantly monitor them. We take utmost care starting from giving medicines and trying out different home remedies. We will feel relaxed only after the child is fine. It is a problem of 7 days. But some mothers have to constantly worry about their children if they are lagging behind in height and weight.

Heredity plays an important role in deciding the child's height and weight. But we must ensure that the problem is with the food and lack of nutrients. Some child might look slim because of their heredity. Some children might look fat because of their heredity. It is not always a problem. The problem is when your child is lagging behind in height and weight because of the poor nutrition.

Beetroot Modak Recipe - Beetroot Sweet Kolukattai version With Jaggery without sugar:

All of us like to indulge in a sweet once in a while right? Then, what about kids? Won't they deserve to indulge in sweets as we did during our childhood? But what is stopping us? We think that sweets are not good for our kids. When we eat sweets, we never care about our health. But when we give sweets to kids, we always have at least a little bit guilty feeling. Jaggery comes to save us from this guilty feeling. But the point here is to pick a good quality jaggery. You might think why we have to be careful while buying a jaggery. I recently heard that Sulphur and other chemicals are added to jaggery.

Beetrook Modak - Sweet Kolukattai Recipe


This is not a recipe to pick if you are making snacks in a hurry. It takes time as you have to grate beetroot and coconut. You also need to make jaggery syrup and blend everything. You need to mould the modak too. So, choose it only when you have a minimum of 45 minutes to spend for this sweet if you are making for family of 3-4. If you are going to make only 5-6, you need lesser time.

You might wonder why there is an exclusive store related to spirituality.  Do we really need to give importance to spirituality in life? I found the below interesting points about Spirituality in a research article.


  • Some observational studies suggest that people who have regular spiritual practices tend to live longer.
  • Patients who are spiritual may utilize their beliefs in coping with illness, pain, and life stresses. 
  • Some studies indicate that those who are spiritual tend to have a more positive outlook and a better quality of life.
  • One study showed that spiritual well-being was related to the ability to enjoy life even in the midst of symptoms, including pain.
  • Spiritual commitment tends to enhance recovery from illness and surgery.


Reference: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1305900/

People who give importance to spirituality and love to indulge in spirituality at home must visit this store at least once in lifetime.

Here is what the owner has to share with us:

To be frank, I believe our Decor products, Idols and lamps talk to our guests in store. My team members are mere facilitators. It is when this communication happens, the  guest becomes very happy and he keeps coming to our store, just to enjoy the display. There have been doctors, who will come for a break at our store, in afternoons, evenings, stay for some time, smile and say I will come back. These are our happy moments, our moments of Peace.
