It’s Simple!

I have been one of those lucky few who hasn’t particularly had troubles with my skin. Yes! I do have my normal monthly break outs (probably 1-2 spots here and there) like most girls do, but I cannot prevent that from happening. Otherwise, I feel blessed with good skin *touch wood*. Thanks to my maternal genes and other little things I do to take care of my skin. Continue reading

Quick fix 3

So tonight my husband suggested a Chinese takeaway and I couldn’t say no because I hate cooking over the weekend. However, we have been eating out quite a lot lately and I just didn’t want to shove another take out down my throat just for the sake of it! I instead suggested to cook Chinese meal at home. A quick vegetable stir fry noodles for dinner. My husband couldn’t be more excited to be eating home cooked food finally and he was so keen to pop down to Tesco and pick up all the necessary ingredients. Bless him. Continue reading

What a girl wants, what a girl needs…

I cannot help but hum to Christina Aguilera’s song/lyrics “what a girl wants, what a girl needs…”, whilst I write this post. No! I am not talking about falling in love, holding his hands or being in his arms or anything love related. I am talking about the other fantasies like shoes, bags, clothes, jewellery, make up and a lot more, a woman secretly/openly loathes and fantasises, and a man/most men might never understand or make an attempt to understand like my beloved. Lol. So here’s what I am talking about…….. Continue reading

Quick fix 2

Scrambled egg with cheese, onion and tomato

So I woke up this morning with a grumbling tummy. I did what most of us would do, check the food cupboard and the refrigerator for anything edible immediately. Found no milk, no bread. There were some fruits but I didn’t want to eat fruits, I wanted something more. Luckily I had about 8 eggs, some onions, tomato, grated cheese and some spices. So I decided to make a healthy spiced scrambled egg.

Day 3 – workout

Day 3 workout session for me is usually on a Friday. The drill is the same as the other 2 days and I will not be going through the warm-up, stretches and cool down exercises in detail. This is because I usually follow the same routine most days I exercise. I have already mentioned the routine in detail in my previous post ‘Day 1- workout’. I like altering and alternating my workouts. Again, in this post the cardio exercise, abdominal exercise and the strength training will vary slightly from the previous session’s workout.

Curry leaves

Being a South-Indian, I have never failed to add curry leaves to any of my dishes. The BBC food describe them as “shiny, dark green, aromatic leaves from the citrus fruit family that release a delicious nutty aroma when fried in oil”. As the name suggests, it is used widely in curries hence the name ‘curry leaves’ and this is extensively used in Indian and South East Asian cuisine.
