10 Rajasthani things which I'am currently loving

Rajasthan has a very rich history with unique cultural and artistic traditions. Famous for its rajput kings, architecture, the folk songs , food and traditional dances like ghoomar, Rajasthan attracts tourists from all over the world.

I love all things ethnic and Rajasthans Fashion and style particularly fascinates me. The gota Patti work, leheriya dupattas , Bandhini dresses and Mojris all make me go crazy. what i love most about rajasthan style is that it is vibrant and colorful mix with intricate detailing.

Iam in mood for a lot of colour these days and Rajasthan fuses colour , style and comfort the best. Anita Dongre is one of  my favorite designer and the reason is simple , her creations are heavily inspired from Rajasthan culture, heritage and traditions. Hi street ethnic brand Rain and Rainbow also has some amazing elements from rajasthan incorporated in its creations. 

If i had an umbrellas so fun and colorful i would flaunt it in all seasons, no jokes there. I love this . Make for amazing photo back drops and will be amazing mehendi decor.

Beautiful Rajasthan-Ladies, Rajasthan, India

I love decor from rajasthan . They are full of bright colours and has a lot of elephant motifs and prints. i have some cusion covers but now eyeing these for my drapes.
Colorful, beautiful fabric handicrafts - one can buy at ridiculously low prices on the streets of Jaisalmer, India. These used to hang in my kids' nursery & now they hang over my bedroom drapes. Seeing them instantly transport me to exotic travels in eclectic India.

Rajasthani women wear a lot of jewellery , by a lot i mean a really really lot . They use a lot of silver jewlelry and all tehir kadas looks very huge and probably heavy too . But you do know about my love for jhumkas dont you? loving these silver jhumkas , i so want them. I dont even a single silver jhumkas in my collection!
Perfect silver jewelry collections! The gorgeous design & style with the ethnic look!  http://www.shaadiekhas.com

Iam not a clutch person and i dont flaunt them until it is some huge event but these colourful beauties are tempting me

clutch and go | COCONUTS AND SUNSHINE

I told you about my love for Anita Dongre already and this is her creation. I have a lot of leheriya and bandhini printed outfits for everyday use but this pink bandhini lehenga is sheer awesomeness. Give it to me and i will happily get married in it . Flowy, comfortable and bright. Into my lust list!

App review: Shake for amazing offers on #MyAirtelApp

Apps are definitely the future of internet browsing. The majority of internet users in india today are from mobile and apps make the whole mobile internet experience simple and seamless . All major websites , companies and services are launching their own apps for better user experience on smartphones. Infact the popular online shopping website myntra.com is going app only from today.
I was watching a YouTube video when the #MyAirtelApp ad was played and i loved how it was asking users to download and shake for offers ki khan khan .I loved how this app was being marketed and decided to test it out and check out these app exclusive offers. 
I am a sucker for all things free and it was great to see some surprise offers and recharges in the app . My nephew loved shaking up my phone and is now demanding to get hold of my phone whenever he spots me :D. But what i loved more was my whole airtel account data was available on the app and i could track my data usage easily. Also managing services you are subscribed to is very simple with this app .

The app also offers options to recharge your mobile from within the app and you can also gift talktime to your loved ones with this option Secure payment is an issue most people face these days when transacting on the internet and this app offers just that coming from the trusted Airtel brand so now customers can recharge and pay bills from within the app without worrying about phishing and stuff like that . Other options include Airtel moneyy, download songs and movies among others on this app.

The all new airtel app also integrates DTH services within it .Now you can manage your DTH subscriptions, choose from various packages, channels, programs and games all with clicks

I loved this app and when my cousin wanted to install it he was disappointed to find that there is no app available for windows phone yet. Currently the app is only available for Android devices and it will be coming soon for Apple iOS phones soon. (wonder what happens to windows users)

What i Love about the Airtel App:

1. Complete Integration of airtel services DTH, Broadband, Prepaid & postpaid services in one place

2.Amazing offers for app users on shaking the phone

3.Helps me tack my account usage easily

4. Tracking my service subscriptions and requests just got better

5.Airtel offers Cashback on recharges through app. Though this is just an introductory offer

6.I hate it when there are tax deductions on my recharges but with the airtel app now i get full talktime .

7. Safe and secure payments of DTH, landline and mobile bills via app

8. Simple user friendly interface making it ideal for all

9. Super fast checkout options by storing card details


What could be better:


App options for windows and apple users is needed

The #myairtelapp can be downloaded from the airtel's website for free. So what are you waiting for go get the type and shake some offers and surprises up.

Decoding Ek Nayi League


Cricket and Bollywood unites us Indians like nothing else can . BCCI is the richest cricket board in the world  all thanks to this Nation of a billions cricket obsession. We Indians cant get enough of cricket and so we dont only have the domestic and international cricket to watch , we also have a glitzy and glam IPL
The Indian Premiere league is currently on and iam least interested. For me the charm of Cricket ended with Sachin's retirement and as for my interest in IPL the 2013 spot fixing scandal is to be blamed. I do watch a match here and there all thanks to my brother who is still an addict but i dont really follow the whole tournament but do you know which league has caught my off late? It is the Ek Nayi League. !

When a league is Promoted by the legendary Kapil dev  everyone is bound to get excited . But what is this league all about? The 'Ek Nayi League ' Literally translated means ' One New League ' and the promotional videos of this yet to be launched League are going viral on Social Media and in all these videos  Kapil Dev features advising people to not play with their heart .  Even the banners show Kapil Dev pointing finger on his head. So What is Kapil Dev trying to tell us? to play with our mind and to use our brains is it ?
This whole Ek Nayi League i must say is marketed very tactfully keeping an aura of  suspense and secrecy around it encouraging the viewers to do some guess work .
When i spotted the 1983 world cup winning captain Kapil Dev in the ad i first thought the this maybe a revamped version of the Indian Cricket League (ICL)  which Kapil Dev was associated with  but when Kapil Dev speaks about not playing form your heart i have a feeling this league has nothing to do with cricket . It maybe a league  involving game which tests a persons Intelligence Quotient  something like Chess but of course i cant be even 1% sure about it because in other videos Kapil Dev talks about retirement and also about women players.



Since there is so much talk of  not playing from the Heart i feel this league may turn out to be something totally unrelated to sports.  It can be something related to women empowerment since one video draws focus to Indian women players and women are though to think from heart and Kapil Dev may be directly advising all us women here.
This could also be a quiz league or a celebrity mind testing reality show as so many references are made for using  the brains rather than the heart.
Another assumption i am going to make here is about this league being a newly launched Fantasy league for the IPL but then again more than half the IPL is over and the timing of the launch just does not fit in.

What Do you think this #EkNayiLeague is all about? please do share in comments.
