Friday Favorites: 08/30

by Khushboo on August 30, 2013

Yikes guys, just where did the month go…how are we already at the last Friday of the month!  I am pretty sure September is going to go by equally fast. But enough with the cliché “2013 is flying” talk & let’s focus on the present while we can.  With that in mind, here are some […]


Californican Omelet

by Khushboo on August 28, 2013

There have been some interesting links popping up on my Facebook newsfeed lately.  One worth sharing is this page on 50 Life Hacks to Simplify Your World i.e. low-budget tips and tricks to make your life easier.  A few that particularly stood out include: Genius much?! Another link which appealed was based on egg whites […]


Take it with a pinch of salt

“I’m feeling SO bloated” …I’m actually not right now  (thankfully) but I am pretty sure that’s a phrase we girls tend to utter at least once a month.  While menstrual cycles (Sorry boys 😉) do play a role, I find that eating high amounts of salt makes me retain water like crazy.  Chinese food, I’m […]


All revved up

by Khushboo on August 22, 2013

Am I the only one who knows that consulting with Dr. Google is a bad idea yet continues to do so?  During Sunday afternoon, my upper back & neck started to feel uncomfortably stiff.  Initially I chalked it up to a combination of lack of sleep & poor posture while sitting at my desk.  After […]


Something smells fishy

by Khushboo on August 19, 2013

It goes without saying: I am a sucker for promotions & I have no shame about it.  When I was in London, I kept seeing ads and posters for the Penny Sale at Holland & Barrett, a chain of health food stores across the UK.   The Penny Sale is a basically a promotion on a huge […]


A ball of fun

by Khushboo on August 16, 2013

I’m just going to put it out there: Jet lag is a bitch…at least from west to east!  Although I landed in Mumbai feeling exhausted on Wednesday morning, I managed to fight the urge to snooze during the day.  That meant unpacking immediately; catching up on work; saying my “hellos” to friends/family; running a few […]


Eating through London

by Khushboo on August 14, 2013

Hey guys!  I’m actually writing this on board- I’ll hit “Publish” when I’m back in a Wi-Fi zone.   Forget movies and reading, blogging is the way forward when it comes to killing time during travel :)!  As soon as I finish up this post or my laptop dies on me, depending what comes first, I’m […]


Since moving to Bombay, one of my favorite things about visiting London is playing tourist. Even though I know London like the back of my hand, I’ve been exploring areas that I otherwise took for granted while I lived here such as Borough Market. It’s a gourmet food market in Southwark with various stalls and […]


Friday Favorites: 08/09

by Khushboo on August 9, 2013

Howdy :)!   This is my last week in London for a few months as I’m heading back to Bombay early next week.  All good things must come to an end, eh?  I might just keep Friday Favorites as a regular fixture around here, especially as they’ve become my favorite post to write- what do you […]
