Fitbit Inspire HR Review

I have never used a Fitness Tracker in my life, so as a beginner, I was quite confused as to which brand I should go for since there are so many options available. While doing my research, I came across the recently launched Fitbit inspire HR, I was bowled over by the sleek look and its features which are apt for a starter like me.

I have been using it for a couple of weeks now and I can say I am more than satisfied with my new purchase. It tracks your steps, your heart rate, sleep hours, it even has a period calendar!

It recognizes 15 different kind of activities like running, swimming, weight training etc without any input and gives you calories burnt, pace, duration etc . Its waterproof so don’t get worked up if you end up wearing it in a shower. Be prepared to be nudged every hour to complete your steps. One more super feature it has that I personally love is the guided breathing mode, for 2-5 minutes. In the middle of my work or before going to bed, I use this feature to calm down and regulate my breathing when I am anxious.

I bought it from Croma for Rs. 8,999 and I can say this easy to use tracker is completely worth it for a beginner like me trying to get active and fit!

Flaxseeds – “Superfood with several benefits”

Started this year on a healthy note by including Flaxseeds in my diet. It is not just great for your hair and skin but also aids digestive health , improves cholesterol and helps in weight loss!

Since I am such an enthusiast of organic products, I bought my supply of flaxseeds from natures basket . They guarantee you that they do not become rancid for a year!

I prefer having it grounded to derive maximum benefit, what about you?

Tresind Mumbai – Restaurant Review

I was waiting to try their chef’s tasting menu after hearing such good things about it and so to say the least, it didn’t disappoint.The ambience is very classy and elegant, perfect place for a family get together or with friends. I was bowled over the way each dish was served by their staff explaining in detail the ingredients .The menu has 10 fixed dishes including starters, mains and the dessert. I loved the truffle korma , gujrati farsan , its not your regular meal, they have added a twist in all the dishes . I totally fell in love with the ram babu paratha and the palang tod dessert. And the a special mention to the presentation of Khichdi.This place is a culinary delight, not to be missed!

Review- Chin Chin Chu, Juhu

To begin with, I totally fell in love with the name ” Chin Chin Chu” – apt for a restaurant that serves Pan Asian Cuisine. But make sure you have a reservation, we went there at 7 and the hostess told us that all the tables are booked! Thankfully, one of the manager was kind enough to give us a table although they did tell us that they’ll need the table by 7.45 but we could easily finish our meal by 8.30 without any problem.

Apart from this minor hiccup, our meal was divine to say the least. I loved the fact that their menu had a variety of dishes to choose from. We started off with the Tofu and water chestnut Dim sums and the mushroom medley open Bao, both were heavenly. Don’t miss the dim sums for sure.

Next we ordered the Pot meal with rice in chilli basil sauce which was again a winner. And finally the Japanese Cotton Cheesecake, so soft that it just melted in my mouth. One of the yummiest cheesecake I’ve had in a long time.

The ambience is very colourful and refreshing, I loved the Pandas on the wall. I wish the staff was more attentive, I had ordered for a watermelon and basil smash mocktail which turned out to be really sweet and when they got me the drink again, it was no different .

I would highly recommend this place for its delicious food , please ensure you have a reservation.

Kettle and Keg, Versova -Review

We went to this place after reading about it on Zomato,it recently opened in Versova and we were eager to try it out.

Its divided into 3 sections – the ground floor being more of the café and casual dining sort, then the 1st floor is a pub with a DJ and then there is the terrace area that gets functional in the evening.
The ambience is very colourful and vibrant.

We ordered the Soya Bean keema which comes with mini pavs which was delicious but I can’t say the same for their Aglio olio pasta .

The staff was very courteous and helpful. They surprised us with a complimentary cheese cake.

Overall, a good place to hang out and relax.

Mia Cucina, Powai – Review

For the love of Italian food, this place was always on my wish list. The set up is comfortable with dim lights and earthy interiors, with a beautiful bar in the centre.

We started with the Home made bread topped with garlic butter & oregano and chargrilled chicken with spinach and potato, both were delicious. The bread was soft with the right amount of butter and garlic.

For the mains, Spaghetti aglio olio and the chicken pesto pizza were palatable although I wish they wouldn’t be so generous with the amount of butter in the pasta. The beverages, both the peach and blue lagoon slush were over sweet.

To end our meal, we ordered the almond chocolate cake which was heavenly!

Don’t miss it if you love Italian cuisine.
