Preethi Zodiac Review - best mixer grinder with Juicer and food processor

Preethi Zodiac Review - Best mixer grinder with Juicer and food processor:

It has been 8 months since I have started this amazing, high-end Preethi Zodiac mixer grinder with juicer and food processor. In short, I totally love it except the high noise it produces especially when I make orange juice:( Otherwise, it is worth every penny you spend on it. In fact, it is better than buying a juicer, mixer grinder and food processor separately. This Preethi Zodiac review will help you to take informed decision if you have Preethi Zodiac in your wishlist.

I would like to highlight here that we have bought Preethi Zodiac mixer grinder with food processor model for my sister too as she is about to enter her marriage life very soon. This can show you the confidence and satisfaction level I have on  this Preethi Zodiac mixer grinder model.

Before going into the Preethi Zodiac Review, let me tell you one thing, there are 2 models comes under the name 'Preethi Zodiac'. One is with food processor and another one is without food processor. If you do not want food processor(I do highly recommend to buy one with food processor since you have to pay only 2000-3000 extra to get a food processor model which can do kneading dough, grating, chopping, citrus juicing, slicing etc), you can select the basic model of Preethi Zodiac. If you want to simplify the above-mentioned tasks too, then go for Preethi Zodiac mixer grinder with food processor model without second thought.

Preethi Zodiac Review - Preethi food processor, mixer grinder and juicer all-in-one model:

Preethi Zodiac is one of the latest multipurpose mixer grinder model from Preethi which can perform the following functions.

  • Atta kneading - I mostly knead my atta in it. You can knead almost 300 grams in a shot. The atta:water is 1:0.5 approximately. I just add atta and salt and then run it for a second. Then I add water and run till I get the job done. I give 5 star rating for this functionality.
  • Citrus Press - It does the job. No complaints. In fact, I am happy to extract as it extracts as much juice as possible. As a side note, the noise irritates :(
  • Chopping, slicing and grating - Definitely useful for every woman. No complaints. Do not expect to cut the vegetables into exact cube-sized. If you don't worry about the shape, you will absolutely love it for saving your time and energy.
  • Centrifugal Juicer , super extractor and blender - You can extract the juices completely. You can even use it for extracting tamarind juices and coconut milk. Lassi and milkshakes are the other beverages you can make easily in addition to juices.
There is an overload indicator light. If you overload the mixer grinder, the light will change from blue to red. The motor will be tripped and you have to reset the overload protector.

It has been mentioned in the Preethi website that you can even grind turmeric in 2 minutes. I am yet to try that.

Preethi Zodiac comes with 2 years warranty. The motor comes with 5 years warranty. As you all know, it comes with free lifetimes service.

Review on Surf excel matic liquid detergent – Top load Surf excel has been one of the familiar brand in the producing detergents for cleaning the clothes. Their recent release on Surf excel matic liquid was a very tempting one to buy. The shape of the bottle with an attractive color on it was making me eager to buy the product. The normal surf excel liquid can be used for washing clothes by hand or by washing machine. The recent one is exclusively designed for washing clothes in washing machine. 

Surf Excel Matic Liquid Detergent Review:

There are two different Surf Excel liquids for top load and front load washing machine. The green bottle is for the top load washing machine and the purple bottle is for the front load washing machine. These liquids cannot be used for hand washing of clothes, you have a different liquid from surf excel available for washing clothes by hands. 

The Surf Excel Matic Liquid detergent bottle has a different look and shape and it is very easy to handle. There is also a measuring cup coming with the bottle which helps you to measure the right amount of liquid for the clothes.

The liquid comes in blue color and dissolves very well with the clothes when mixed with the water. All you have to do is, put the desired amount of clothes into the washing machine. If there is any tough statin pour a little amount of liquid on the stain are and rub it with the back side of the measuring cap that comes with the bottle. This will help in relieving the stain from the cloth. Other than that you can put the clothes in the washing machine, pour a required amount of liquid to the cap provide and then pour it into the washing machine. 

You can wash a lots of clothes with a small amount of liquid. One full cap of liquid will be used for full load of clothes. The best part of this liquid is its fragrance, it has a very mid fragrance that gives a pleasant smell to the clothes like the other detergents that has no smell at all. The other best thing about Surf Excel Matic Liquid Detergent is, it makes the clothes feel soft and fresh. It just removes the stain but retains the color of the fabric and the texture of the fabric the same way.

Surf Excel Matic Liquid Detergentalso does enormous good to your washing machine as the powder detergents usually gets clogged into your washing machine and causes trouble, whereas the Surf excel matic liquid detergent blends with the water and dissolves thoroughly so that there is no problem of clogging. There is no chance that this liquid will cause problem to your washing machine.

Godrej Aer pocket Review

Godrej Aer pocket Review:

By Sangeetha:

Have you ever experienced a stinky smell coming out from the dirty shoes, bathroom or kitchen garbage? Imagine guests coming to your place at this time. This would really be disgusting for you and them as well. I have been on a long haunt to make my bathroom smell like a garden. How much ever we clean, it gets dirty very soon. I have tried almost all the products in the market, and I have never been judging on the money I spend on these fragrance products, but no products met the expectation. It was all waste of money and did not even give any fragrance for a single day too. Then I heard about this Godrej Aer pocket through the constant advertisements in the television. Those advertisements where not new to me because every other brand I used previously also had a same kind of advertisements but it did not work well. However I wanted to try this product for one last time.

Godrej Aer pocket Review:

I bought this Godrej Aer pocket in the nearby supermarket. There was 1 bag inside each pocket, and each pocket costed Rs.55. To start with I purchased just one. There are many attractive colors with different fragrance. There are colors like purple, yellow, pink, green and aqua blue. The purple one is the violet valley, yellow is the tangy delight, green is the lush green, aqua blue is the misty meadows, and the pink one is the crush pink. The outer covers are very attractive as it comes in vibrant colors indicating the fragrance of the product that you are going to choose.

I tried the pink colored Godrej Aer pocket named the Crush pink. As the name suggests you will fall in love with the smell of this pocket. This finally made my bathroom smell like heaven. It has a strong fragrance and spreads over the entire bathroom. Few people may not like this smell as it is a little strong.

Then to the next try I purchased the violet valley. This one also had a very nice lavender smell, it eradicates all the bad smell and leaves your room with a very good fragrance.

My next try is the misty meadows that comes in an aqua blue color packet. This one has a very pleasant smell, this will be loved by the ones who does not prefer strong smell.

I am yet to try on the tangy delight and the lush green fragrance and I am sure it is not going to disappoint be.

The problem was aggravated when I was posted in a place away from home, and had to manage my laundry, wash my dirty dishes and utensils all be myself, continuously for two years! And the result was two hands, which looked like the hands of a 80 years – old lady.

Elite Matrimony Feedback

Every girl has big dreams about her wedding and even bigger dreams about her life partner. For a few, such a wedding happens like a breeze. For few others, it’s quite a toil. Especially in a country like India, where marriages are like a celebration with supreme importance, it becomes even more cumbersome. It is just not about finding the right partner but also about identifying the perfect family. That’s because marriages are just not about the unison of two individuals but of two families. All of us would have a friend or relative who has been unsuccessful in finding the perfect match. We also would have heard tales of not-so-successful marriage due to various reasons.

From my family’s personal experience, I have an interesting story to share. There is this cousin of mine named Haritha. A very well bred, intellectual and independent girl from a financially sound background. Being born and brought up in Bangalore, she was very specific and keen on what she wanted out of her partner and her marital life. The downsides of her was her weight and few knots in her astrological charts.

There were red spots and a burning sensation. I removed the make up with a regular soap and also used neem face wash. But the aftermath of putting on make up taught me that my skin needed extra care as far as removing the everyday dirt and make up is concerned.

10 Latest Saree Trends - Latest designer sarees 2017:

Sarees are a real favorite of Indian ladies and are also featuring a great deal in the pages of latest fashion trends the world over. Sarees make you look gorgeous and dignified at the same time. If draped properly and supplemented by the right kind of jewellery, sarees can win you glances and hearts in every party or festival where you wear them. You can wear sarees in every occasion – some formal meeting or any informal gathering, wedding or office party. We are sharing here the latest saree trends in India - the designer saree designs which you will really love for sure.

10 Latest Saree Trends - Latest designer sarees 2017:

Latest saree Trend #1 - The Dupatta Saree:

These exquisite sarees are just a replacement for the lehenga that come in two pieces – a lehenga and a dupatta. With a matching choli, of course. In usual lehenga, the lehenga is first worn, and then the dupatta is draped over it. But in dupatta saree, the saree itself has dupatta which you can use it to cover your head or your shoulder itself. 

The dupatta saree highlights every curve that you possess and can accentuate the beauty of your waistline. You can wear the dupatta front to back or back to front, as you feel like. The pleats on the pallu created by the dupatta, should be narrow and hung loosely from the shoulder to look nice.

The dupatta saree is ideal for wearing in weddings and other traditional occasions, as the best dupatta sarees have heavy embroidery work throughout the saree including the dupatta. You can also have the dupatta adorned with patch work. This is the latest saree trend especially for the brides who wear dupatta saree during weddings.

The dupatta saree comes in a variety of fabric like silk, georgette, or satin. But the dupatta is usually made of chiffon. The colours of the two pieces may contrast each other. The choice of two bright colours, or one bright and one sober work perfectly to suit you in every occasion.

Latest saree trend #2 - Cape Saree to look terrific:

Want to look really glamorous and try the latest saree trend that is the favorite of many Bollywood stars? You may try wearing a bright and highly embroidered cape over your blouse. This gives a totally different look from your usual self. The way of draping the saree is the traditional way, with the pleats neatly done and the pallu hanging back from the shoulders. With the cape on your saree, you look highly glamorous. And you thought capes were worn by the Supermans and the Batmans from the children Superhero books. Check how beautiful Deepika Padukone is looking in this cape saree.

Traditionally capes are worn by ladies from the earlier generations and mostly woolen ones during the winters. Capes go very well with your traditionally worn saree, petty-coat, and blouse, mainly on ladies with a slimmer shape, as the cape tends to make you look bigger at your shoulders and bosom areas.

The typical capes worn with sarees are not the round ones, but the shorter version, that only cover the shoulders and are open in the front. You can wear them in contrasting colours with the saree or of the same tinge. The capes are mostly heavily embroidered and they make you look smart and elegant. If you can carry the cape styled saree, you can really be the most talked about the lady in the entire party. While the latest designer sarees are also coming with cape, the latest trend is to wear it with a saree with minimal design.

Latest Saree Trend #3 -  Readymade saree to make your life easier:

A readymade saree is a pre-stitched one, that you just need to tuck in your petty coat, with the Patli all done in nice pleats and so is the pallu. No wonder why this is one of the latest saree trends in 2017, the year no one has no extra seconds to spend in draping saree. Thus the saree is not a 5.5 meters or 6 yards long fabric that you need to drape. All you need to do is wear is like a skirt and you are now ready to walk into a party. Many of the latest designer sarees are readymade sarees now.

You look graceful in a typical party wear saree and nobody’s the wiser. This is a nice choice for those ladies who are not quite used to draping sarees but want to try them on on special occasions. You can opt for various colors, types of fabrics, and embroidery on the sarees. The readymade sarees are mainly made using heavily embellished material that can be easily worn in parties and social rituals.

The foreigners feel comfortable wearing these sarees as there is no risk of them coming undone in the middle of an ongoing celebration. The popularity of the traditional Indian saree has gone up in the West as a result of the introduction of the readymade saree. However, the blouse or choli needs to be worn separately.

Latest saree trends #4 - Half and half saree:

A half and half saree is mainly a saree created by fashion designers and dealt with by the boutiques. Most of the designer sarees are now half and half sarees as this is the latest trend in saree. They are actually two sarees, each cut into two halves and then stitched one after another. One part acts as the pleat, starting from the waistline, and the other starting where the pleats end and run to form the pallu. The blouse normally matches the part that remains in the pleats. The two sarees are so selected so as to contrast each other. The technique of draping the saree is normal.

At present, you will find hundreds of Indian women wearing half and half sarees on a regular basis, or on special occasions. They are not so expensive, that you can select to mix and match two sarees in any price range. However, sometimes these boutique–styled sarees are affixed zardousi or embroidered borders, that enhances the price a bit.

Sarees are going through tremendous innovations and these half and half sarees are a typical example of such introduction of innovative ideas.

Latest saree trends #5 - Butterfly pallu sarees:

Also known as the Bollywood style, following the use of the draping style by most of the leading ladies in Mumbai film world, the butterfly pallu sarees and their easy yet unique way of draping have become very popular. Sarees are universally accepted as a versatile attire, as you can wear a saree to work everyday and also wear them on very special occasions like wedding, office parties and religious festivals. Butterfly pallu saree is the latest saree trend in the year of 2017. There are so many designer sarees coming in butterfly pallu style.

The way of draping the saree is easy. You just need to take the pallu around the back and hang it loosely over your shoulders. You can wear any saree, any make any fabric and any design in this manner and create your very own style. However, the draping can be done best with a lighter saree like a chiffon, kota or silk one. The pallu is typically embellished with heavy needle work, giving the saree the look of a fluttering and happy butterfly. You may wear a butterfly pallu saree with a blouse that comes with deep cut design and stylish pattern.

Latest saree trends  #6 - Multi-colored Ready pleated saree:

A colourful saree, made for all ages and all occasions, the colour pleated saree looks smart and gleeful on you. The saree material is, in most cases, georgette or chiffon. The colours are actually multi-coloured prints that occur throughout the saree, in its pleat area as well as the pallu part. The saree is casual wear in most cases, but can also be a huge success in parties and office gatherings. These sarees, in most cases, are provided with matching blouse pieces. You can wear modern costume jewellery with the saree to take you to a different dimension.

You feel happy and your mind is set free when you wear multi – coloured pallu sarees. The best colour pleated sarees are hand printed with the most exquisite work by designers. These are also boutique styled sarees, the patterns of which come out of the designers and are unique in most cases.

Latest saree trend #7 - Lehenga saree:

An new introduction in the trend of sarees in India, the lehenga sarees is a mix of the traditional lehenga – choli and a designer saree. The portion of the saree around your waist is in the form of a lehenga. The upper portion or the pallu is formed out of a saree of same or contrasting colour and design. Lehenga saree is the new decade's latest trend.

The lehenga saree finds its origin in the craving of all such Indian and foreigner ladies who wanted to wear sarees but found it too cumbersome to drape one. The designer came up with a lehenga worn with a partial saree on it, giving it a very traditional and very much Indian look. You can have your very own tailored lehenga saree for your wedding or for someone close. The draping is easy, as you have to wear it like a skirt and zip it up on the side, and then wear the saree part as the pallu, leaving it hanging on your shoulders. The saree looks best with a designer choli and heavy traditional jewellery.

Latest saree trend #8 - Patli Pallu saree: 

These are very modern sarees, again born out of the designer’s wish to revolutionise and globalise the ethnicity of the Indian saree. Here, two sarees, similar or contrasted in colour matching are so stitched that one saree forms the first part that you start with tucking in your petty coat, and also forms the pallu part, while the other part forms only the pleat or the patli. The draping of this saree has to be done with extreme care, as the overlapping of parts will not look good. The blouse is most often made of the part of the saree that remains at the pleats.

This type of saree is the latest trend in saree designs which is quite common among office goers. However, the silk sarees are elegant enough to be worn in any special occasion. You can get the pallu part embroidered to give it a richer look. Worn with metal costume jewellery, these sarees can raise eyebrows in the social gatherings without a doubt.
