Adieu To Television Remote War

Flashback, rewind, repeat, play. Our huge family of siblings, cousins, aunts, and so on were all having a family reunion. After a long day of sumptuous dishes, tasty treats and fun games , everyone settled into the living room to watch some good old television entertainment. There was the OSCARS  2010 award show broadcast and we all wanted to watch that. Whoosh! Popcorn checked, Coke checked, everyone in their favorite spots Checked!!. Lets get this evening rolling.. Just 10 minutes into watching the exciting arrival of the actors, the previews of the upcoming performances and drooling over the gorgeous dresses of the divas, our youngest cousin started crying. Argh! This 6 year old cousin wanted to watch TOM and JERRY!!. Of all timings! His mom took out their laptop and tried to make him watch some of the saved videos but no, this kid wants to watch it on the ''Big TV'' and it had to be now! Well, who can argue with a crying (bawling eyes out) 6 year old :(. So, for 30 grueling minutes, we had to sit there and  watch the cartoon till he said OK! to switch the channel. What a spoiler it was! On other days too, I still remember my youngest brother always with a frown on his face whenever that cousin comes over. My brother loves watching WWE and my cousin would insist on watching CARTOON. Yeah! families are fun and they are everything but just, tiny bit just sometimes, we love to watch our favorite shows whenever its on TV. And we all know, in family 'war' for the remote, the youngest or the eldest always wins (haha!). 
Well, now, this is the age of mobile entertainment and everyone downloads and watch their own favorite movie or music video on their iPad, Tabs, etc.  And for students or working professionals  like us living  in another city, there are less fights over the TV remote. But I really do miss out on some of favorite shows like Game of Thrones, Modern Family and India's Next Top Model because of TIME scarcity! I know that I can download them online and watch them later but again, when you are so busy, where do you get the time to sit down and download? I wished there is an easier way to fix this problem. How awesome would it be to record and save the shows when they are on TV and transfer them to your mobile device?. 

TATA Sky was the first choice when we purchased a DTH  for our home. Maybe it was the Sharukh Khan ad or the catchy theme, Tata Sky seemed like the perfect choice. And now in 2016, TATA SKY has once again proved to be a game changer in DTH revolution. It recently launched  'TATA SKY + TRANSFER" set top box which  is going to radically change how you view entertainment. Basically, Tata Sky + Transfer lets you - Record your favorite show , Transfer them to your device and View them in offline mode whenever and wherever. Yay! This means I can record my favorite shows and save them on my smartphone or tablet and watch them when am taking a long boring metro ride :). I would say this is the best thing that has happened in years and no more missing out on my cool shows! I really dread long commutes and this new cool feature from Tata Sky is going to be so so helpful. Besides, I am saving my broadband data usage too. Plus plus points all the way! 
To know more about this new feature, please visit . And here's the cool ad from Tata Sky. I am so psyched! Enjoy!

Come December Wedding Season Again

Hello Beauties,

One of our favorite topics to write are on wedding dresses and by now you must have seen tons of posts on this same topic. I used to think that I will get tired of looking at wedding dresses too often but that does not happen :). Every design of wedding dresses that are available around have their own unique and special quality and each dress is so beautiful. The ladies here will all say Yes! to this I am sure. So, no surprise here for today's post which is on wedding dresses. Ever since online shopping became a thing and you can get any item online, lots of store owners have been selling wedding dresses. The range and variety of wedding dresses you can find online is just overwhelming. Try for yourself to choose a particular site or the wedding dress for your own and you will get what am trying to say here. I mentioned in an earlier post that my cousin sister is getting married this December and that we tried to choose a wedding dress online. And we did get so lost and bowled over by too many dresses available and had a hard time choosing. We are still searching as I write this post (all the best to us). 
Speaking of wedding stores online, I like to share about one store that sells wedding dresses, wedding party dresses and other special occasion dresses. Rosa Novias ( ) is a company that is based in the UK and offers professional custom made, designed dresses for its customers. I love how their designs have an elegant touch and the details are so skillfully crafted and made with the finest quality available. The designs range from richly embroidered style to simple style and fits the wishes of different brides. When it comes to any store online, I think that variety, attention to detail and meeting individual needs of the customers are the core assets to look for. I've often exited some sites due to lack of variety or lack of option for custom alterations. 
I am sharing some images from their section on  Strapless Wedding dresses . For wedding dresses, my first choice is Strapless dress styles and these are so beautiful and so perfect for any bride. Hope you enjoy them too.
Truly, when a bride puts on a wedding dress, she is a beautiful vision in white and the most grogeous and lucky woman in the room. Well, this are not the only ones available at Rosa Novias and if you like you can check out other sections like Mother of the bride dresses if you are a Mom reading this post and you have your daughter's wedding coming up. Or for people like me who have to attend a cousin's wedding, their section on Special occasion dresses would be just perfect!. Either ways, have fun checking out the site and hope you find something you like. I am sharing this last image below, one outfit which I would love to rock. Am not so great in high heels and I love how they have paired the dress with comfy boots :).  Thank you for reading! Great weekend to all.
