Enchanting Venice

I had mentioned in my last post that we had gone to Italy in end March / early April. The blog post on the trip got delayed because I had run out of hard disk space to download all the photos! I finally managed to create space and here’s the first post on Italy – that fabulous country.

It was an 11 day vacation – 3 days each in Venice, Florence and 4 days in Rome. I planned to put all of it in one post with 3-4 photos of each place but we fell in love with Venice and I wanted to put many more photos!

Green Fruity Salad

I went home to Kolkata for nearly 6 weeks to celebrate the rice ceremony of my cute baby niece and then went on vacation immediately after. After devouring the yum-yum mum cooked food at home and then cheesy pizzas and the uncountable cremalicious gelatos in Italy (or should I say, Eataly), I am back home in Singapore, tanned and with few extra kilos here and there!

And also back to blogging and to healthy eating. For lunch today I whipped up this ridiculously simple but gorgeous looking fruit salad which is crunchy, juicy, zesty and anything but bland. Read on at: http://rheawrites.com/

Beetroot Cutlets

Vegetable Cutlet (or Veg Chop as we fondly call them) is a quintessential accompaniment with a strong cup of  evening “chai” in most Bengali households.

These are healthy too – a sneaky way to add quite a number of veggies into kids meals without making it taste boring.

My Top 5 picks of Nude Shades

Finding that perfect nude shade for the lips is a task in itself, isn’t it?

Pheww! So a decent amount of research and a million swatches at the counters later, I have finally compiled 5 ‘my lips but better’ shades which goes amazingly with my medium Indian skin tone and would probably go with any skin colour too.
