Prithvi Cafe, Mumbai

Prithvi Cafe, located in Juhu area of Mumbai, is an oasis of tranquility in the hustle of the city. It is hugged by beautiful trees and sea breeze. On a regular day, you will not be surprised to see people being star struck at frequent visits by Bollywood artists and stage actors as it is placed back to back with Prithvi Theatre.

Hung out last Sunday at this beautiful and cozy place. The ambiance is worth all the hype, so comforting and calm. You will find this place lit up in colorful fairy lights and beautiful night lamps, hanging by the trees and wooden fences. However, I wish they played some mood uplifting music, probably the 90’s (Wham, Backstreet, Elvis..). Prithvi Cafe, are you listening?

Super hungry and ready to indulge, I called for something that always manages to catch my eyeballs, the Cheese Chilli Sandwich. And boy! Super crispy base and perfect balance of toppings with loaded cheese. Great quantity and taste!

Next up: Amritsari Chole Kulcha (Tawa)
Fun dish. The spices and sauces provided along with the meal are so interesting. The Chole, honestly, weren’t all that great but the Kulcha stole the show.

Intrigued by its concept, I called for a beer bottled Chaas and an all time classic, Lemon Iced tea for a friend. I loved the beer bottle Chaas concept. So refreshing, much fun, very wow! And well, the iced tea, couldn’t go wrong with that baby, could they?

The interiors of the cafe were quite engaging and interactive. The tables had some really fun slate boards that read ‘Taking pictures? Do tag us and share on social @..’, hence doing the marketing bit right.

All in all, a must visit.
Personal Recommendation: Bun Maska and Cutting.

YOU are the hero!

Sometimes you need to remind yourself that you are the one who carried you through the heartache. You are the one who sits with the cold body on the shower floor, and picks it up too, all by yourself. You are the one who feeds it, who clothes it, who tucks it into bed, and you should be proud of that. Having the strength to take care of yourself when the world is trying to bleed you dry, that is the strongest force in the universe. And you should feel lucky that you possess it.

– Sarah A lice Young

Remember, you are all you have. And that’s perfect.

Ever imagined if Monday was called Friday and Friday… Monday? The world would be hating on Friday and how! Sounds blasphemous, right?

Chill out.

It’s legit to feel lazy and hit the snooze button a hundred times to avoid going to work and it is absolutely okay to send in a mail at 8:30 am excusing yourself for running late due to sudden made up bank work. It is fine. Everyone does that, including your boss.

It’s only fair to feel that way after having a smashing weekend, indulging in things you love. But that’s that. Stop dreading. Don’t push it. Relax. Breathe.

I think Mondays are overhyped. It’s really not that bad at  Someone said, take 3 deep breaths and the solution to any situation would come easier.

The same way, Monday is the day for solutions. You take 3 deep beautiful breaths (read Friday, Saturday and Sunday) to only come out stronger, focused and wiser on a Monday.

If anything, Monday should make you feel good. It’s when you are most dedicated and focused due to work pressure or just to resume where you paused last week. I don’t know about you, but it makes me feel good to complete the incomplete and take another stressor off my plate.

Treat it like a new day (like any other) and feel your perspective towards life and Monday change. Let’s get rolling, shall we?

Comment below and join me in breaking the stereotype.
To Monday 🍻

Ek Cutting!

I am not a tea person. Just no. However, recently I was hanging out with a friend who is  a tea lover and most of our chill sessions happen at the tea-stall during work hours.

Let me tell you, I absolutely adore tea glasses that look like the one above and think they are crafted really well. They manage to look edgy and cute at the same time. Self sufficient you, you little glass. Hmm.

I happened to own a tea glass like this one and decided to do something with it for a friend who was in a desperate need of some work-station decor. Here’s what I did:

Step 1: Get a glass.
Step 1: Get a glass.

Step 1: Get a glass. This could be any glass you think can work as a showpiece or a utility stand/holder. You could either choose from glasses you own or could just buy one from a utensil shop/DMart (they don’t cost more than Rs 17- 20 each, some even cheaper).

Step 2: paint it.
Step 2: paint it.

Step 2: Paint. Choose the color you want the glass to be painted in. I chose black, cause let’s be real, it just saves the day! Make sure to paint your glass from the inside as that helps the paint to stay longer and dust free and also avoids chipping. You could glass paint or acrylic paint.

Step 3: Pimp it.
Step 3: Pimp it.

Step 3: Pimp it. I have written ‘Pen Stand’ in Hindi to add an element to this stationary holder. You could write absolutely anything from lyrics to a favorite word or even a message. I did not use a stencil for the text cause I wanted to give it an amateur and unfinished look. This also makes it look hand-made, which is why I avoided using a print out or a stencil.

Step 4: Accessorize it.
Step 4: Accessorize it.

Step 4: It’s time to suit up! Go ahead, add your favorite stationary to this glass.Fancy pens, colorful pencils, funky erasers and some highlighters – they all compliment this little darling.

Tip: If you want the paint inside to stay longer and bruise free, add a little varnish to this piece.

It took me nothing more than 15 minutes to make this super easy and fun stationary stand for my work station. Here’s what the final product looks like adding another reason to why I love my work-station:

My workstation.

I made one of these for my boyfriend and he seems to have loved it. You could make this for a friend for his/her first job or for your sibling for their study table with some motivational quotes on it.

I really hope you liked this. Comment below and tell me what you think of it, your feedback is highly appreciated. I’d love to see what you make out of this idea so please do share pictures soon!

Love,

Who run the world!

Well well well, this by far is my most favorite dance video. This was back in 2013 when I got back to dancing after a 6 month long break. There’s something breaks have made me realize, that you only get back being better at what you love doing. Taking a break helps you find yourself and makes you realize what you love and why. It’s more like what you call soul searching, I guess.

Anyway, so this is the choreography I’ve been meaning to share with you guys.
P.S: I am the girl in the black tee and blue tracks.

Choreographed by Dhiraj Bakshi
Dancers: Mrigakshi Jaiswal, Afia Modak and Devanshi Vaishnav.
