Ambi Pur Air Effects - Blossoms & Breeze

Hey Everyone!!!

Don't we all love rooms that smell fresh and clean? I do too. But when it comes to air freshners, there are were hardly any available to my liking. Most of them are too overpowering and I honestly don't like the fake smell of roses and jasmines they impart. And this is true not just for the cheap ones but a few expensive ones as well.

So when I got an opportunity to review the Ambi Pur Air Effects I said why not. They were offering 2 variants - Thai Dragon fruit and Blossom & Breeze. I chose the Blossom & Breeze variant.

Ambi Pur Air Effects

What Ambi Pur Air Effects Claim:

Eliminates Odours and Freshens the Air. Ambi Pur Fresh Effects is like a breath of fresh air any time because it actually sweeps away those stale and stifling odours and leaves a fresh scent, just like you have washed malodour from fresh air. 


Rs. 220/-  for 275 g. Available in stores and online. You can buy it from Flipkart


It comes in a white metal can with a plastic cap- trigger in blue and pink. The packaging is not only sturdy but looks pretty too.

Ambi Pur Air Effects


Hold can upright, pull trigger back and spray the air in a sweeping motion throughout the room.For noticeably fresh home, spray all the rooms in home

My experience:

The Ambi Pur Air Effects - Blossoms & Breeze has a mild yet very pleasant smell. Just 2-3 sprays and the entire room is filled with sweet floral fragrance. It is very soothing and calming. I use it after coming back home tired from work. Quickly uplifts the mood. Also the fragrance lingers for a long time, around 2-2.5 hours.

All in all a very good air fresher that is affordable too. It is easily available both in stores and online. A little product goes long way. Since it imparts fresh floral smell and is not at all overpowering, everyone will like it.

Once I finish this one, I am surely trying other variants too. Do try this one out and I am sure you will love it too.

Product sent by Ambi Pur for Indiblogger's Blogger review program. The reviews are honest as always.

Ten Smart Tips For Your Suraksha

Hey Everyone!!!!

Hope you had read my last post I Wish I Had Smart Suraksha. If not read it here

Don't we all start our day reading newspapers that on an average have 5 reports on crime against women? And what happens after that? We pity them, pray something like this doesn't happen to us or people we know. There are so many people around us giving out all sorts of advice on how to avoid these -

  • Don't wear skimpy clothes. Don't wear too much of makeup.
  • Don't leave your house late at night. 
  • Always go out with someone who can protect you and what not.

Sad but true, in our society if something wrong happens to you,  ITS YOUR FAULT.

But should we really sit at home with a fear that something wrong will happen if we go out? Or maybe dress top to toe?

Will this really help?

Well the answer is NO. Rapes and molestation happen not just at night but even in broad day light. Not all the girls who are subjected to these crimes wear short skirts.  So what to do? Just sit back and pray nothing like this happens to you?

Here are a few tips that can help in case you find yourself in such situation.

(1) It could happen to YOU:  Yes YOU. The first and the most important thing to prepare yourself to fight such situations is to make up your mind that it can happen to anybody. Even You. Most girls believe that they will never be a victim of these incidences. These incidences don't knock at your door before coming in. Precaution is always better than cure.

Image Source

(2) Keep Your Eyes Open:  Always keep your eyes open. These incidences can happen anywhere, anytime. Be alert. There are more chances of being attacked when you are least expecting it. So next time walking down a street you are not very familiar with, be alert rather than talking on the phone and not knowing what is going around you.

(3) Smart Suraksha App: As said in my last post I have already downloaded and installed it and request you all to do so too.  What better than intimating your family and friends when you are trouble and that too at the touch of a button. You can download it here.

Image Source

(4) Safety in your Bag: Don't we women carry our world in our bag. Then why not carry something for our safety too?  And no that doesn't mean you slip in a sharp kitchen knife in your bag, unless you want to get your self in trouble. But yes you can always carry a pepper spray which looks harmless but would be of great help. You can buy one here.

Image Source

(5) Learn Self Defense: No I am not asking each one of you to get a black belt in karate but at least learn some basic self defense techniques so that you can fight for yourself if need be. Google and find self defense classes in you area and enroll for the one that suits you the best.
(6)Silence is Not Golden: Not always, but in many cases it has been found that the criminal was known to the victim. It could be anyone - a neighbor, colleague, friend or relative. If you think something is not right, trust your instincts and confide in someone you can trust. Also keep away from such people and if possible let them know through your body language that you are not weak.

Image Source

(7) Don't Quit: I know it is easy to say but very difficult to act if you are actually caught up in a situation like this. But giving up would mean loosing without a fight.  Hit hard where it hurts the most, raise your voice for help, run as fast as you can but don't give up.

Image Source

(8)  Keep away from Strangers: Do not easily befriend strangers. Avoid talking to people you are not familiar with. Do not give away your personal details. And of course do not ever eat or drink anything offered by strangers. Also in case travelling late or when at a new place do not share a cab.

Image Source

(9) Help Others: We all try to keep ourselves away from SUCH MATTERS. But if we want to put an end to these things, we have to unite. If you want someone to help you or your sister or your wife or anyone you know, help others.

(10) Close Your Face Book: Don't get me wrong. I am not asking you to quit all the Social Networking Sites. I know everyone enjoys sharing pictures, checking in at cool places, etc. There is nothing wrong in staying connected with the loved ones. But be cautious and don't accept friend requests from people you don't know, change your privacy settings so that only your friends can see your updates.

Hope this post helps you. Be Smart, Be Safe.

Everyone Has A Reason To Pray

Hey Everyone!!!

What did you guys do this weekend???

With Diwali just a week away, I helped my Mom with the pre-diwali cleaning, shopping, etc this weekend. And believe me it is a tedious job. If you think I am talking about cleaning house, wait my friend. I am actually talking about the shopping part.You think I am kidding, don't you?? Well I am not. Shopping for clothes and all the girly stuff is no doubt my favorite thing like your but when it comes to shopping for household stuff, it is not at all easy. And it gets tougher when you have to shop for Diwali Pooja.

Diwali is one of the most important Hindu festival and belonging to a Baniya family Lakshmi Pooja is of GREAT importance for my family. Every little thing from what goes into the pooja thali, the new account book and much much more goes into the preparation.

I was not much involved in all these years except for eating all the sweets after the pooja. But then this year my darling Mother has not been very well and being a good daughter I had to go shopping with her. I had no idea, so  many things go into the pooja thali- kumkum, haldi, diya, agarbattis, and a lot of other things. Apart from that the Lakshmi and Ganesha statues and you have to know all shlokas  and aartis that are to be recited ( I read them out from a book while Daddy knows them by-heart).

So when we went shopping though we had most of the things, Mom wanted to buy few things that were short and 1 complete set of everything. Why one set of everything??? How could I forget, my younger brother stays in Hostel and won't be coming down this Diwali to be with us :(. So she wanted to send him a pooja set. But then I said don't. These days we get everything packed together. Just open the box, assemble everything as per directions and you are ready. But Mom won't listen. So to convince her, I quickly took out my tab, googled " Diwali Lakshmi pooja kit India" and found Sampoorna Lakshmi Pooja Pack in top results.

Me: Mummy let us send this to Bro.

Mom : No no these ready made packs don't contain everything. Don't you know how important Lakshmi pooja is?

Me: I know that. Okay, lets do this. You name what all is required for Lakshmi pooja and if this pack contains everything  we will send him this.

She started naming everything one by one and to her surprise, this pack did contain everything.

Me: Mummy not just what you named but it also has a Lakshmi Ganesha statue  a CD with all the prayers which like me Bro doesn't know either :P. And yes its on for Rs. 630/-  (Actual price Rs. 700/- )

Mom: Okay, you win. Send him one but be sure it reaches him before Diwali.


This Pooja pack is a great find for people like me who cannot remember everything that you need for Pooja or don't get the time to go out and buy everything and is reasonably priced too :)

Oh yes and I also came across this cute video when I was searching for Lakshmi Pooja packs. This is so me .

I am not some one who is very very spiritual and prays regularly. Someone who knows all the aartis and bhajans but every time I am I am confused, I am in some kind of  trouble - big or small, HE is the one I talk to.

Every time I didn't do my homework in school I would pray to God that somehow teacher should not come for the lecture. That I get so and so gift from so and so person on my birthday. That I pass my test with good marks. That Mom should not notice one plate from the new dinner set she bought is missing.  And so many more that I have lost count of. God may or may not listen to what I ask for ( and he actually cannot. I ask him to possibly do everything for me :P) but that does not stop me from asking. And yes I do thank Him back when he listens and complain when he doesn't. God to me is like a secret buddy and prayer is our telepathic chat :D

Everyone has a reason to pray. What is yours. Let me know in the comments below. Would love reading :)

And yes A VERY HAPPY DIWALI in advance to you all. Enjoy and be safe :*

Shopping Challenge by

Hello Everyone!!!

If you are an online shopping maniac like me, I am sure you are familiar with 
Cashkaro is India's No.1 Cashback & Coupons website. With you can now EARN 
CASHBACK every time you shop with websites like Yatra, Jet, Flipkart,,, Expedia, Myntra, Jabong & many more.  Just go to first & then go to other websites from there. Shop normally & get cashback. When you have Rs 250 confirmed cashback, you can request it to be paid to your bank account via NEFT or request payment via cheque.

Now has come up with a challenge for the bloggers. They gave us two topics to select from-
1.      If you were given Rs 10,000 how would you spend it? How much would you save via and what will you do with that money saved?
2.      Shop via Cashkaro & share your experience. How did Cashkaro save you money and would you recommend Cashkaro to your friends?

I found the first topic very interesting and thought why not challenge myself to buy an entire outfit including clothes, footwear, accessories and makeup.  Also with Diwali so near, why not go for an ethnic outfit? So let’s get started. I’ll first try to fit a complete ethnic outfit in the given budget and at the end of this post tell you how much money I saved using and more importantly what I will do with it J

When it comes to online shopping I always prefer Myntra and Jabong as they have the latest collection, great discounts and a very good customer service.

Biba had recently launched their showstopper collection which I instantly fell in love with. Also for ethnic wear, Biba is my favorite brand as they have unique designs and fit really well. I don’t have to go for alterations most of the times J. I chose this beautiful black and red cotton suit set.  This dress was love at first sight.

I came across these pair of wedges by Metro browsing through Jabong’s footwear section. Aren’t these a perfect match for the suit set above?


The suit has a big golden border and prints so I didn't want to add too many accessories. So I chose a pair of long drop earrings in black and gold.


With too much of black in this outfit, I chose a red and gold toned clutch by Shree to break the monotone. It has ethnic print all over and the studded stone piece gives it a royal look.



I chose Maybelline Clear Glow Natural Bright Benefit Cream 03 for base makeup.

My favorite eyeconic kajal for creating a dramatic winged eye as well as on waterline.

A red lipstick by Maybelline Colorensational in Rubylicious Jewels Lipstick 630.

Maybelline Colossal Volume Express Waterproof Mascara to add some more drama to eyes J

And lastly nail polishes from Maybelline’s latest color show range in Downtown Red 216 and Blackout 220 to do a  simple nail art using these two.


 And here I am all ready for Diwali evening J


Now coming to how much I saved using

As of now is offering 6% cashback on anything bought through them from Jabong (check here)and Flat Rs. 180/-  cashback on Myntra (check here).  So let’s do the math now. I know everybody hates math but don't you wanna know how much money I saved??


Product from Jabong

Actual price of the product

Money saved using

Biba Cotton Suit

Rs. 5595/-


Metro Wedges

Rs. 1190/-

Rs. 71.4/-

Maybelline Nail enamel in Downtown Red and Blackout

Rs. 150/-


Lakme Eyeconic kajal


Rs. 11.94/-

Maybelline Mascara

Rs. 350/-

Rs. 21/-

Maybelline BB cream


Rs. 11.94/-


Rs. 7683/-

Rs. 470/-          



Product from Myntra

Actual price of the product

Money saved using

Shree Clutch

Rs. 1399/-



Maybelline Lipstick

Rs. 3500/-


Rs. 156/-




Hence in all I spent Rs. 9588/- out of the stipulated budget of Rs. 10000/- and managed to save an additional amount of Rs. 650/- using (excluding the discounts offered by the website J )
If I saved this amount I will spend this money along with the money I save on by not bursting crackers during Diwali, to buy sweets for the less privileged kids and light up their day too J
