Tamra – The All Day Dining Restaurant at Shangri-La’s Eros Hotel New Delhi, is the newest F&B offering from the hotel. It’s only about a month & half old and I had to take up the review offer, as I am always excited by the hotel’s ventures as it never disappoints me (and also because they have an amazing PR team who are warm & friendly).

I am such an avid online shopper, a fact my regular readers know so well by now. Online shopping is just not fun though, all the time. I have had unpleasant experiences once in a while and it has only increased my wisdom as a shopper.
One of the not so pleasant experiences in my online shopping has been with Jaypore.com. It is an online shopping portal for indian/india inspired products. The story and theme of the curated products appealed to me when I chanced upon the website. I really liked the beautiful photography and well-designed products on the website.
After many months of window shopping and browsing at the lovely displayed products, I ordered a pair of earrings. The description of the product said – Hand painted Silver earrings and since I liked the image of the product, I promptly ordered them om COD.
The product arrived within a week (as per shipping time provided by the vendor) and it was packaged very nicely. However, when I examined the product closely, I found that the earrings were not hand painted but the image which I loved so much on the website was a actually a cheap print!! It was a mass produced, badly printed pair of earrings. See, my shipping order from the website below:-

Ever since I have gained a couple of kilos due to my pregnancy, I have re-discovered my love for palazzos. They are so good at hiding the flab and giving a slimmer look to the post maternity me. So, I have been experimenting with styling palazzos for wearing to work and found it can be done very easily. I am having an awesome time wearing palazzos to work and my two outfit ideas will show you how. I have worn palazzos not just on casual Fridays but also to formal meetings.
Outfit #1 – Solid Color Palazzos for formal office wear.

I have been to Market Café only once before, with a friend and my experience was kind of average (read here). So, when I was invited for review of its winter menu, I thought of choosing a different location this time around, so I have a more holistic view of how Market Café outlets are run (and also if one outlet is better than the other).
We arrived on a Friday night at Market Café, Khan Market to a rather packed outlet (which is always good thing for business) and the Manager was still amiable enough to get us a bigger table (for 4) for the two of us (me and the husband). This time around, we were just reviewing the winter menu so asked the manager to serve us items from it. Between the two of us, we had pumpkin soup, veg rolls , empanadas, chicken burger, cheesue fondue and molten chocolate in dessert.
