Ready to be allured?

What’s life without a few indulgences every now and then?

When I talk about indulgence, I mean some real guilt-free indulgences that satisfy you, while at the same time leave you craving for more indulgence and taking you to a lovelier world of exclusivity. Though I am not a fan of Indian sweets, I am a sucker for desserts like cakes, pastries, tarts and much more. What if I tell you could indulge into all of this without gaining any weight?

Below are the top 5 patisseries in Delhi I can vouch for and promise that these indulgences will drive you crazy, just like the limited edition Maruti Suzuki DzireAllure.

No Bake Chocolate Oats Bar

No bake oats bar

I’m always on the lookout for healthy munchies that I can keep in my bag and carry to work. All thanks to hyperthyroidism which made me gain some 15 kgs in 3 months. Oh yeah! I suddenly started looking like a potato.

Instead of waking up to the smell of fresh coffee, I was forced to take a pill, which would leave me bloated for the rest of the day. But I’ve never been a fan of orders. I stopped taking all medicines after a month and joined the college gym. Soon I realized that wasn’t enough. Taking 4 eggs after my gyming season wasn’t really doing the job. I felt energy less, almost always. And since I was staying in a paying guest accommodation, I couldn’t use the kitchen for anything except for making tea. Oh, life! I started looking for healthy snacks which did nothing apart from leaving me broke.

7 Ways to Look Great in Designer Fitness Clothes

“Fitness and fashion do not go hand in hand” says only an ignorant. If you thought fitness fashion is an alien concept, you probably are living in an alien world right now. For the realm of fitness has become fashionable over the years and how! Gone are the days of ill-fitted, dull, plain-Jane, no-nonsense track pants and t-shirts. Fitness clothing is just as expressive and idea-elucidating as party-wear clothes probably. And, with the whole concept of working out becoming more holistic, great emphasis is being laid to not only what you do, but also what you eat, what kind of lifestyle you lead, and what you wear while you are on the job. For good-looking clothes not only serve as extra motivation to sweat it out like you mean it, but they also make the whole experience more fun.

And with all the myriad options we have right now to be fit and kicking, there should be no dull moment in your fit life.

Planning to go out for a dance night with her girlfriends, she realized that she doesn’t have the right bra. Oh but how does the bra matter anyway, I mean it’s not like she’s going to take off her clothes.And what about the dance floor? Forget it. She’ll sit in a corner and adjust the under-wire and deal with the quadraboob battle every few minutes.

Bra Size Guide by Triumph

She opened her bra drawer, only to realize that it’s just a bucket full of bad decisions.There’s this amazing bra that she bought on offer; it’s so pretty and it’s an A cup, I REPEAT, AN A CUP. She’s a C Cup!

And then she spotted a sexy bra that she intentionally bought two sizes smaller so that her cleavage would look noticeable; and then there’s this pretty one that stabs her in her armpits, and then another one, her favourite one that closes in the front, though it’s a little tight but she loves it because her boyfriend has a hard time figuring out how to open it.

Dieting is darkness and Diwali has lights written all over it!Diwali sweets gulab jamun

It’s high time we stop obsessing over Diwali detox without understanding what goes into making the delicious laddoos and mithai. It’s time to teach your kid how to roll a laddoo and make it the new cool thing (again), instead of teaching him how to play games on a cellphone.

This festive season, what’s the plan? To pretend that you have an upset stomach or skip that party or to tell your friends that you have an upset stomach? WHO ARE YOU FOOLING?

If you keep looking at that piece of gulab jamun, thinking of ways to skip it, you and your body get disturbed. A disturbed and stressed body converts maximum food to fat. Now would you want that?
