Hello everyone!! Like I told you yesterday, the monsoon fest on my blog starts from today. Food, Fashion and Feel is the theme.

I am sure that just like while I write this, while you read this too, the atmosphere around you must be cold and the rain must be hitting hard on your window sill.
I think most of you will agree that there is nothing as good as a hot cup of tea or coffee in the monsoon weather be it for beating that work stress or just relaxing at your home or at a restaurant.

So my today's post is going to be all about these beverages.
I will show you how to add a dash of different flavour and a twist to the usual beverage in your cup and that too very easily and without much effort. You will also learn how each of these recipes by me are beneficial to your health!

*Disclaimer: The below mentioned recipes are entirely mine and all the photos and the content you see in them are original and belong entirely to me and are not copied from the internet and I am willingly shar…

Hey there everyone!! When we think of a festival very rarely do we think or co-relate it with monsoon!

So I am coming up with something new and different!
I am starting a three week monsoon fest on my blog.

The second week will be about Fashion! why?? because fashion is an essential part of our lives!!

The third week will be all about 'Feel'! now what is this?? this will feature some real life incidents and stories which will actually move you or make you 'feel'

The Fashion and Feel segments apart from my articles, will also include opinions, photos and life stories of some pretty cool people around!

So let's get the fest started!! Let the celebration begin!!
