How I can forget to take a selfie with the chief and my friends….
to explore new things and make new friends. I missed their first meet by chance so was very eager not to meet any meet in the future. Their second at fab cafe made me learn yoga, doubts from a gynecologist and some beauty tips.
I love painting and was so much excited about the third event Paint party and it was fabulous. We had lot of fun with colors and really had an amazing painting session with lovely Artish Pragati Gunashekar who bought out the artist in all of us and Klay Play School at anna nagar was our venue.She taught us how to use the brush, mix colors, do strokes and paint..
The session went for three hours and ended up with a amazing painting. Not only me but each and everyone did justice and the painting came out very well.. Here is my painting with acrylic colors.
I was amazed to see how every little thoughts and details went into making this meet a success. It was a full house, and no, am not joking! Made possible thanks to chennai mom tribe and to #KlayPrepSchoolAndDayCare
who took good care and kept little ones engrossed while the ladies enjoyed the painting session.

We live in a modern world that offers us an abundance of choice and convenience. It’s easy to shop cheap, fast fashion. And, it’s easy to shop often. But, the choice is also there to shop slow, ethically, and sustainably. Slow Fashion is not your typical seasonal fashion trend, it is a movement that is steadily gaining momentum and is likely here to stay. I am talking about slow fashion as I got inspired by a Chennai based designer, Priyanjoli invited us for an open studio in her boutique.
I was very much excited to attend it as Priyanjoli is a niche clothing label that celebrates both handloom and the modern woman. Priyanjoli collaborates with clusters of weavers and artisans to create exclusive designs and texture. Priyanjoli Basu, Founder & Lead Designer Priyanjoli Basu was born in Kolkata into a family of empowered women who are passionate about heritage textile. and studied fashion and design at the London College of Fashion. The slow fashion label is doing this by bridging the gap between traditional techniques and the constant evolution of modern fabric.Sustainable fashion is often concerned with the environmental impact. Opting for fibers and materials that are organic, recycled, or repurposed, limiting harmful chemicals/dyes, reducing energy/water usage and waste, and overall choosing low-impact options wherever possible.
About the store :
They strongly believe in the ‘beauty of handmade’. Their store is full of attractive handmade things like ceiling, hand-painted cupboard and much more I totally love the ambiance. The best part about the label is the fact that they offer personalized client services. They make every woman experience a completely personalized one. This means that women of all sizes can wear a Priyanjoli creation… Isn’t did great ?? They also offer a reverse pick up and alteration service, in case of any further alterations.
Priyanjoli Basu shares her story
“…that she loves textiles, In the beginning, it was a fast fashion picking up clothes from different stores also working with designer making wedding clothes but she realized there weren’t good everyday clothes made out of textiles that we make in India. So she went to study in London came back to India . So the entire time between London and India she realized, that this is what she loves doing she like textiles and she not only like fashion but she likes the whole process os textile making so she decided to have a brand.
She started with a very clear chain of people working with her because she started realizing what kind of harmful effect clothing, manufacturing was doing to the planet and she was passionate about the cause. So she wanted to create something in clothing which will not affect the future of her child as well the future of the planet. So she started working mostly with people who needed support, who did not have the knowledge to change designs, capacity to evolve from where they wear to global market, so she started creating her own brand where they have handloom textiles, apparels, sarees, tops, skirts, dresses, pants and much more. She started the store with the idea of custom tailoring. to be able to meet women who come and tell what they like and what would look nice on them, she could change her mind by making her try something who really fits her. As she is from Kolkata she started working with weavers from Bengal and created a weavers community in Bengal where she empowered with technology, teaching them how to use WhatsApp and take pictures so that they can send it to me that the production is done would you like to change colors. I started teaching them ways to communicate, not just with me but also with other vendors which are really helping them. So this becomes a very interesting educational program for her to start teaching and communicating… To maintain these fashion projects we had a store named Priyanjoli and now it has been seven years online too. But the idea was, we wanted to be a household synonymously named with the word sustainable and ethical. This was one of the key reasons that we started the brand and the business. Keeping that as a philosophy, we created handwoven textiles that impact the planet giving good products packed without using plastic. However, our main motto is, Source from local weaver and create transparency from textiles to garments.”
As we can see their focus is on woven textiles with simple and contemporary aesthetics – giving way to global design.
You can also select a ready-made design by taking a look at their size chart (from petite up to Size 16). They also offer a reverse pick up and alteration service, in case of any further alterations. Though Priyanjoli does plenty of basics like casual tops, which are perfect to wear to work and some informal jackets, it is their ikat dresses collection that has caught our eye. Though the label is definitely not budget, but if u love environment you can give it a try…

Salman Khan’s film on the festive occasion of Eid, is just icing on the cake it can’t get any bigger! The much awaited, Sallu Bhai’s movie is out! Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar
Just watched the first day first show with my family. And am really excited to share my reviews of the amazing movie..
We all know the movie is inspired by South Korean film “Ode To My Father”. Salman Khan plays the role of Bharat, who promised his father Jackie Shroff that he’ll keep the family-friendly united and take care of them forever. The film traverses many decades starting from partition in 1947 to 2010.
BHARAT is an all-in one kind of movie, which takes us through all the rides and strides of life.
The movie has very smooth transitions and mostly does not bore us. The characters play their roles perfectly and are always in sync with each other. The music also does not disappoint us, and makes us groove to its beats.
The movie, teaches us life lessons, as to what it means, when it comes to family and how to keep and prove your promises. The BGM is also done right which helps the movie connect with audience..
This movie also boasts a major strength, that no movie has today, which is LOGIC! The movie is so well written and stitched together that it becomes a visual treat.
Without any doubt, Salman and Katrina stand-out with their strong performances, Sunil Grover also highly impressed me with his orlandish acting skills.
The movie points out to the different phases of life and takes us on a roller-coaster ride of emotions, jokes, promises, joy, action and suspense.
However, a little too much of anything is not a good thing. In this movie I feel that there was too much of drama! The movie was streched a lotttt I guess it should have been shortened..
Which however is over-shadowed by the phenomenal performances by the cast and most of the credits obviously goes again to the director.
On the whole, this movie is definitely a one for the ages and is a sure-shot blockbuster. Even though the trailer didn’t impress us much, but the movie, filled our hearts with visual brilliancy and made it theirs!
You definitely should not miss this one and watch it as soon as possible in your nearest theatres.

‘Spring Roll’, these fried little chops which consists of fine-veggies, with soy sauce, which is served hot and tasted better with the tomato ketchup and indulges our taste-buds to an adventurous start.
‘Cheese Corn Nuggets’, as the name suggestsis a blend of cheese and corn fried into nuggets. This one would be an all-time favourite for the ones who love cheese. The satisfaction when you cut open these nuggets with drooling melted cheese will awe you.
‘Baby Corn Varuval’, is the tangy-fusion of the Westo-Indie spices, baby corn is fried with gram flour-coating and is presented in the form similar to that of a south-Indian varuval.
Moving on to themain-course,surprisingly in the assorted breads-section, they had us busy picking it’s varieties, which includeskulcha,butter naan, garlic naan,tandoori roti, butter rotiandroti/naanand also amazed us with the options they had with side-dishes and sabji’s, which included,BhindiJaipuri,Dal Palak,Aloo JeeraandKadai Paneer, they also provided the Jain customers two sabjis, which were,Dudhi MasalaandKala Methi Mutterrespectively. And to our surprise, they also offered other cuisines, includingChinese items, (Hong Kong Noodles, Mix veg.

Biryani and Pachadi).
They also had alive-counter, which was deliciously hand-made by the chef, the dish served on that day was our all-time favourite,Pav Bhaji, served with onions and lemon.
The icing on the cake was the Desserts Section,which seemed like an ocean full of varieties, waiting to be gobbled up. We literally didn’t know where to start from, the options available to attack were,Sweets(Dry Jamun, Semiya Payasam, Barfis),Pastries(Choco-Orange, White Forest),Fruits(Water-Melons, Pineapples, Pumpkins and Bananas). The Desserts section also included the likes ofIce-Creams(Vanilla with Chocolate sauce) andMojitos(Sweet Lime, Kiwi and Strawberry) On the whole, this made our day and satisfied our hearts! and would definitely recommend you guys to go, give it a visit with your friends and families.

When I heard of TEASERS ♥️ , located at Forum Vijaya Mall , I was so much excited to visit the shop and try it …. Its a unique and creative outlet as the name says TEAsers, they make yummy drinks with the uniqueness of tea and bubble beads, which bursts and gives a unique flavour that your taste-buds cannot wait to relish. These innovative drinks are also healthy and delicious. We totally loved it to the core and enjoyed it.
History of TEAsers :
TEAsers offers an exotic variety of bubble tea with range of refreshing fruit flavours & milk based teas served with cold or hot tapioca bubbles/balls. This is a popular and evolutionary drink that is served with delicious nudge to tea infusions. They use freshly brewed tea leaves from the finest manufactures and the fruit flavours concentrates that go into the drink along with the popping bobas are acquired from their loyal established partners who manufacture the same with very high standards.
Woman behind TEAsers:
TEAsers has also expanded to online ordering and delivery. It boasts of signature products ranging from delicious double-chocolate pudding milk tea to healthy choices such as yakult green teas, with the added effort to lower the calories while maintaining the best value for its customers. All components are 100% vegetarian. The credits for coming up with this kind of an innovation goes to a woman, Ms. Kripa, who has set herself as an example for other women. TEAsers have been started in Vadapalani, Ambattur, Nungambakkam and Coimbatore. Best wishes Kripa for much more.
At TEAsers we call them “NaughTEA Bobas”. These are small juice balls that add the much needed twist to the drink. The shell is made from Seaweed extract, with delicious fruit burst flavours inside!
Tapioca pearls :
They are small marble sized black chewy toppings found at the bottom of your bubble tea. They can sometimes be found to be white or transparent depending on the ingredients of the pearl. We at TEAsers use the black pearl which includes sweet potato, cassava root and brown sugar.
Bubble TEA :
Bubble tea was originally created as a tea-based drink that was invented in the 1980’s in tea shops in Taichung, Taiwan. As in the name, most bubble tea drinks contain a tea base mixed with fruit flavor or milk. TEAsers introduces this wonderfully tasting drink to all age groups; from school going toddlers, fun loving youths, happily wedded couples and to the gracious grandparents. Bubble tea ,also known as pearl milk tea, bubble milk tea, boba tea, or simply boba. That’s an interesting one with so many varieties to choose. They had two major kinds, the one with the milk and the one without the milk. If you don’t like the smell of the milk then you can go for the one without the milk in which the flavours are strong. I personally loved the milk base though.
My favourite bubble tea :
After a dilemma, I finally came up with a drink that impressed me, I ordered based bubble tea with honey dew flavored with grape jelly . It was really wonderful and tempting. . Its immensely satisfying when the slippery balls stream up the straw and fill your mouth. You will find yourself slurping pointlessly (and loudly) at the dregs to hoover up every last drop, until you realize sadly that the experience was over.
I also tried Chocolate milk bubble tea with tapioca, Lychee fruit bubble tea with mango boba which were So yummy and totally refreshing!.. Both were upto the mark and of good quality: the tea was tasty, and the bubbles were nice and soft. You can choose the type of Bobas you want. There are the chewy ones, the soft ones like water bubbles, the jelly kinda ones and many other varieties of boba. They also serve Madras Mudka Tea , cookies and some other Hot Beverages too.
Melting cookie purely veg with vanilla icecream:
Cookies and vanilla ice-cream base are not as creamy as regular ice cream so when they melt, they do so cleaner and quicker,,, It was so delicious with the amazing ultimate melt in your mouth which makes us visit again and again..
I love this place the bubble tea is super tasty and is really good! Plus the atmosphere is super cute! It’s well decorated …. Even a diabetic can drink here! Just ask our Bubble makers to add half sugar or make it sugar free. I highly recommend this place!
