Fruit Custard-Smoothie

Ingredients needed

Vanilla flavored Custard powder - 2 tbsp

Milk -500 ml/ 2 1/2 cups

Sugar -50 grams or as required

Mixed fruits- anything of your choice. (I have used apple, grapes, banana & pomegranate)

Note : Do not add watermelon as it oozes water.


Mix 2 tbsp of Vanilla custard powder with 3 tbsp of warm milk and make a smooth paste without any lumps. Your custard paste is ready.

Boil 2 1/2 cups of milk , add sugar to it.

Add the custard paste to the milk and cook stirring continuously (so that it does not burn) until it becomes a little thicker than the consistency of raw milk (Check by pouring)

After it comes to room temperature, refrigerate it. (It will become more thick when cooled)

Cut fruits of your choice. You can use any seasonal fruits or mixed fruits.

 Arrange the fruits in a glass.

Pour cold custard in a glass.

Garnish with pomegranate seeds & a sliced grape on the edge of the glass (like I've done with the black grape).
Serve Chilled.

Note - Mix fruits to custard only before serving.

This be a very simple recipe and i'm sure everyone will love it. Do try this yummy custard smoothie in your kitchens and let me what your family or friends said about it (I'm quite sure your kids will want more and more of it everyday).

Orange is the happiest color!

Hey girls! Hope you all are good!

Since its the monsoon season..which is going to last for about fifteen more days I guess, I thought of creating a quick & casual look for you girls which will be really comfortable for you to carry in this humid weather!

Top : shopnineteen | Jeans : ZARA | Shoes : prettyballerinas
Bag : LeDiva fauxL | BeingHuman band | Watch : Fastrack 
I always had this feeling of oomph when I saw people wearing the bright orange color in summers. I always felt a little wierd about my dusky complexion having to carry the same color. I had this misconception that orange looks good on whitish people more often. Well, I bought this top recently from shopnineteen (an online shopping store) as to give it a try….and here it is…I don't look bad, right? In fact, I feel it has enhanced my complexion in many ways. I always loved the color and I believe being colorful is the most fantastic part one can ever play! As every color denotes something, orange denotes ENERGY & HAPPINESS. Since its a sheer top, I had to wear a spaghetti inside. I wore a black one but you can wear orange or white too.
I recently got these pair of stone wash jeans which I really love because of the fit. I am really particular about the correct fitting of my jeans or trousers because I don't want to keep pulling it up (while its slipping down from my waist) every time I wear it, only to get embarrassed! You can see I have rolled up my jeans, which I avoid doing mostly but there's nothing worse than stepping out in the rain and getting yourself soaked for the rest of the day. Plus, it is giving the whole look an edge so I'm kinda okay!

My love for the bag I’m carrying is not hidden. I got it from a store in Delhi. If you follow me on instagram, you must have seen me posing with this bag almost everywhere! Its a multi-purpose bag & multi-occasional too! I can carry it with a short skater dress to a brunch party, with a pair of ripped shorts & a shirt to a friend's place, with a printed shirt & a pair of plain trousers to my college, with a rock chic dress to a party at the club, or even with a long skirt & a tank top to a casual date. Also I love carrying it because its really spacious & easy to close with those little magnet buttons that shut up automatically! The sling makes the bag look casual yet funky. It can be added to any attire in two ways - 1. cross-body 2. one sided shoulder bag. 

Many of you know, I have recently started wearing this orange BeingHuman band inspired by one of my cousin brothers. I wear it everyday with every attire, so here you're seeing that too. Also, I chose to add this fun looking blue watch which has a falling dial attached to the leather band and it looks really cute. For my footwear, I chose these summer pink ballerina slippers which I bought from (another online shopping store). These are super comfortable, easy to slip-in and complimented the orange top. Plus, they have rubber soles so I was tension-free about not getting my feet wet.

Hope you all enjoyed reading this post, the same way you're enjoying the season! Don't forget to comment below telling me what do you think about this look of mine and follow me on instagram for more OOTD style-ups!

Because one day, I might get hit by a bus.

Hi guys! Its my happy happy happyyyyy birthday today! I just thought of sharing this note with you today because I don't know what's gonna happen tomorrow. Love you!

Because one day, I might get hit by a bus.

I love being horribly straightforward. I love sending reckless text messages (because how reckless can a form of digitized communication be?) and telling people I love them and telling people they are absolutely magical humans and I cannot believe they really exist. I love saying, “Kiss me harder,” and “You’re a good person,” and, “You brighten my day.” I live my life as straight-forward as possible.

Because one day, I might get hit by a bus.

Maybe it’s weird. Maybe it’s scary. Maybe it seems downright impossible to just be—to just let people know you want them, need them, feel like, in this very moment, you will die if you do not see them, hold them, touch them in some way whether its your feet on their thighs on the couch or your tongue in their mouth or your heart in their hands.

But there is nothing more beautiful than being desperate.

And there is nothing more risky than pretending not to care.

We are young and we are human and we are beautiful and we are not as in control as we think we are. We never know who needs us back. We never know the magic that can arise between ourselves and other humans.
But we never know when the bus is coming…
