Sobremesa- "That time spent after a meal, hanging out with family or friends, chatting and enjoying each other's company and savour both food and friendship". What could get better than this?

Those meet ups at a friends place where we dash in just to catch up over some good food or snacks,cook together,take the photos of the food from the perfect angle, share the food cooked, eat the food till we burp are sure to put a smile on the face.


But what if the friend is super busy and does not have time to cook a 3 course meal? Can't we have the good times? of course not! McCain snacks to the rescue!

When there is irresistible yummy food, which is Trans fat free*, gets ready under 3 minutes, has goodness of potato and can also be baked, it is sure to spread smiles.

With so many delicious McCain snacks available one can never go out of options for a bunk up night out with friends, or even when there is someone visiting without informing before. The McCain snacks does the magic of making the friends, relatives craving for more food!.

When there is Good food, Good friends, Good company, Good times is guarenteed

Secret Wish - of every creative soul!!

I am me!
As simple as the two lettered word
As complicated as (mc)2
I refuse to be a part of the herd
I refuse to be in the rat race
I refuse to follow few ridiculous concepts
I refuse to being chained by sitting in the same place
I refuse to sit inside a glass box and look at the screen
What I want to do is beyond professions and careers
I look for a place where I will love everything around
I need my own space to do things at my own pace!
I am  to make my own way
All I have is dreams and want to live all of them!!

10 things to do when you are angry

Anger is an emotional response , when one's boundaries are violated. Few have learnt to deal with anger and few struggle to control it. Here are few ideas to control anger:

1.listen to music

Music is the best thing to listen to while dealing with the anger arsenal. Choose the music that matches with the mood and hit play

2. Use the anger to fuel something productive

When we are angry , something that we cannot explain twits and tosses and wants to explode.
Anger brings energy and we should let anger guide to understand us that will lead to self-development and to bring about a positive change

3. Discuss the anger with someone.

When the day is bad or there is ongoing stress in life, it’s always better to discuss it with a dear friend or family members
The simple act of telling things out will make one feel so relieved and also bring out a new perspective to the issue.

4. Think before you speak.

Words once said cannot be taken back and cannot be forgotten.
“A moment of patience in a moment of anger saves a thousand moments of regret.”.

5. Respond , don’t react.

The biggest problem when angry is we do not listen to understand. We listen to reply and there arises the problem.
Take a moment for the words to get absorbed and then respond.

6. Take a deep breath and try to distract yourself.

Breathing is a relaxation technique, that helps with anger management and also to let go of stress and anxiety.

7. Go to sleep

when angry go to sleep as the mind will quite down and you will stop thinking about the issue.
The relaxed state that one will be after the sleep will help to tackle anger and deal with the situation better

8. Write it down.

Write down everything that made you angry or about the situation. This helps you shake off everything in mind.
The sorrow, the grief, the anger will slowly start disappearing and also helps to keep the anger level in check

9.Surround yourself with happy things

10. let it go

Raksha Bandhan gifts for your doting sister

Raksha Bandhan gifts for your doting sister

Raksha Bandhan is one of those Indian festivals that is celebrated with great aplomb and glory in the country. While it is a great matter of pride for the brothers to be able to protect their sisters, the latter love the fact that they would be at the receiving end for money, gifts and so many blessings. To make this Raksha Bandhan special, take some time out to find a gift for your dear sister that she would deeply cherish. Apart from chocolates, there are many options that you could try your hands on, without digging a hole in your pocket!


You must always cringe on the fact that your sister’s closet is full of clothes yet she’s always complaining that she has nothing to wear. All you have to do is indulge in a bit of online shopping this Raksha Bandhan, and you can browse among some of the choicest clothing brands at one place. From dresses to Anarkali kurtis, you can make multiple purchases and earn some great discounts on all orders. Gift her some cool tees, trousers and shirt combo or even a simple kurta would do. What matters is the gesture of gifting rather than the cost of what you’re gifting her.

Captivating Perfumes

If you’re looking at some pointers over exactly where to hop on to finding a gift that’ll make you the best brother in the world, then might we suggest to look at the perfume gift sets options at From Cool Waters to Gucci, some of the coolest perfume brands have been showcased at this site. Take a peek at some of the most exotic and renowned EDTs and EDPs as well. Body splash and kits from Victoria’s Secret are also some of the good options.

Watches –the timeless accessory!

Watches are definitely eternal. A watch is definitely something your sibling would hold dear for a lifetime. A Titan Raga traditional watch or one of the more contemporary choices from the Casio or Citizen series could be some of your choices. If budget is not a constraint, then Ed Hardy, Gucci, Esprit, Seiko etc. foot the bill for resplendent, luxury watches that would make for a good investment. You can shop online for watches from all good brands and different styles such as jewellery watches, analog watches etc.

Shop Online is my to-go-website whenever I’m in the dilemma of where to find that perfect birthday gift, anniversary gift or options for gifting for festivals. Under one roof, one finds all famous lifestyle and fashion brands. Apart from a wide apparel collection and accessories mentioned above, you can also scroll down for jewelry both in the precious and artificial variety. Then there are sunglasses from labels like Ray Ban, MTV, Fastrack and others. A swanky pair of aviators in green or golden colored lenses would bring a different twist to this year’s Raksha Bandhan. Check out the list of bags they have. From shopping bags, tote bags, wallets to potlis, laptop bags and slings, gift her any one and you won’t regret it. Other thing that women love apart from bags is shoes. A glamorous pair of gladiators or trendy sandals from brands like Bata, Clark's and the likes would definitely bring a smile on her face. This is not the right time to limit your options because sisters are special!
