Take it ezee with Godrej Ezee Liquid Detergent! ~ #EzeeCares

I love the winter season and with it the vibrant fashion it brings in terms of clothes. This is my favourite season to shop and my wardrobe bears testimony to this. I love trying out new trends in woolens right from the bright coloured and varied styled scarves to sweaters to shrugs but while buying them makes me feel happy, it is their maintenance that worries me.

Unlike cotton, silk or other fabrics that we wear in summers, woolen clothes require special care to preserve their soft texture and colours. They require gentle washing and unlike other fabrics "no ragad" which can fade the bright colours and make the woolens feel coarse, thereby reducing their life.

Godrej Ezee Liquid Detergent


Ezee Liquid Detergent for woolen clothes from Godrej is a godsend. Not like the hard detergents that fade the colour of our woolen clothes and make them loose their style, Ezee keeps the woolens bright and new because of its No Soda Formula.

Powder Detergents, no matter how expensive they are, contain 'Soda'.  Soda is corrosive and robs off our favourite woolens of colour and style. I became tension free when I bought the new Godrej Ezee- the pH-neutral liquid detergent with a 'Zero Soda' formula that cleans gently and keeps my sweaters new, wash after wash. Not to forget the in-built fabric conditioner system that leaves the woolens with a pleasant fragrance- every time.

It is so easy to use Godrej Ezee to wash woolen clothes. Either you machine wash or hand wash them, just one cap of the liquid detergent cleans six to eight woolen clothes effectively. 


Soak the clothes in Ezee for ten minutes and gently hand wash to clean them. No "ragad" required. Even the tough stains get removed like a charm, leaving the clothes smelling fresh and feeling soft and new!

During machine wash, simply add one cap of Ezee to six-eight pieces of woolen clothes and wash normally. No hassles and definitely no "ragad" required. Washing our winter wears was never this easy.

My winter clothes look new and remain unharmed wash after wash with Godrej Ezee and I am so glad I took my mother's advice to take it ezee with Ezee!


I happily recommend Ezee to everyone. Ezee is not only "Ezee to use" but also "Ezee to choose". It comes in a wide range of packaging to suit everyone. Gentle washing our winter clothes was never this easy. Go try Godrej Ezee and experience its magic firsthand.

Have you tried Ezee Liquid Detergent? Do share your views with me. I love hearing from you.

#BookReview: A Walk in the rain; A journey of love and redemption by Udai Yadla


A Walk in the rain by Udai Yadla

Title and Author: A Walk in the rain; A journey of love and redemption by Udai Yadla
No. of Pages: 240
Publication Date: Kyron Publications, January 7th 2015
Genre: YA, Romance, Thriller, Young Adult

Book Review:

A Walk in the rain by Udai Yadla is the author's debut book and is the story of Sunny who faces many tragedies in his life that shape him and of Saloni, a prostitute who is desperate to earn money through any means. They hate each other but still are pulled together through circumstances which lead to intense emotional upheaval with plenty of mystery and adventure.

The plot of the story is well thought of and executed. The characters are intense and complex with multiple shades. I found them in the grey area and experienced a range of emotions towards them. These are brutally honest portrayals of real life people and I congratulate the author on bringing them to life so admirably.

The pace of the story is maintained along with the mystery and emotional angle. The narration is fluid and scene building again noteworthy but at some places the author loses track and seemed rambling which could have been curbed. The length of the story could have been easily shortened.

This book is quite different from the other books that I have read recently and has much to offer to the readers. It cant be placed neatly in any genre. It is not completely a romance nor can it be termed a thriller/mystery. There are shades of many genres in the book with an adventurous killer hunt, an attraction between unlikely characters and a heart crushing emotional journey.

All in all, A Walk in the rain by Udai Yadla is a noteworthy debut and a different kind of book. Recommended to all readers especially young adult lovers, I give it 4 stars out of 5 and look forward to reading more from the author in the future.



I received the book from the author via Writers Melon Review Program and I am very thankful to them. The above is my honest and unbiased review and in no way influenced.

#BookReview: Colourful Notions by Mohit Goyal

Title and Author: Colourful Notions by Mohit Goyal
No. of Pages: 200
Publication Date: November 1st 2016 by Srishti Publishers & Distributors
Genre: Travel, Travelogue

Book Review:

Colourful Notions by Mohit Goyal is the debut book of the author and a book quite unlike any that I have read in my journey as a reader.

This book decribes itself as a travelogue but is so much more. There is friendship, emotional play and some real drama included along with extensive descriptions of places across India right from east to west and north to south.

I loved the three characters Sasha, Unnati and Ab. They are truly musketeers and following them around in their adventures on this road trip across India was fun and so entertaining. Sasha is a friend everyone will recognize easily. We all have one such friend who is goofy and a fun friend.

Mohit Goyal through his fluid narrative sucked me in and held me captive right till the end. I saw India in a new light and while some places were known to me but still the crazy funny escapades had me thrilled, there were others I visited for the first time and absolutely loved the experience. 

A must read for everyone, I give Colourful Notions by Mohit Goyal 4 stars out of 5. This is a noteworthy debut and a book that not only entertains but also will make you want to go road tripping yourself.

#WebsiteReview: 7coupons for free coupons and offers for online purchases

Thrifty shopaholics like me are always on the lookout for discounts and offers while shopping online. Free coupons are a great way to get attractive discounts, sale and cashback on products that not only save money but also enable us to try out products which with their original pricing are always out of our reach!

Recently I came across 7coupons.in when searching for Bluestone Coupons to buy a gift for my sister. This website offers latest free coupons and offers on a wide variety of products across websites and cities!

Right from the initial glance I noticed that this website is very different from the other coupon websites already in the market.  






Website Review:

I enjoyed browsing 7coupons, found really great coupons here and decided to share my review with you all. So here is my review of this website.

Why choose 7coupons for free coupons and offers for online purchases?

I liked the below features of 7coupons website.

1. 7coupons claims to have only coupons and offers that are first verified from various e-commerce websites and online stores across India and then a live count of the number of verified coupons and offers is made available on the website.  So overall, it has 100% authentic coupons and deals.


2. Strict check is kept to only show working deals and any obsolete or expired offer is immediately removed.


3. I noticed that this website hosts a large variety of coupons and offers including cashback offers from across Indian e-commerce portals.


4. Clear listing of "Stores" is given on the main page to facilitate search. The website design is clean and it is easy to browse for coupons.





5. Further filtering is provided with drop-down options like "Stores", "Categories" and "City" where we can either choose from the vast drop-down in each option or enter our own pick in the respective boxes. So it is very easy to find the right coupon and offer!


6. The navigation to the search results is fluid and quick. The coupons get listed in a clean fashion and it is super easy and simple to select the most favourable offer.


7. Each coupon is listed with all its terms and conditions of usage including its expiry date which is another plus.




8. On clicking a coupon, the website takes us to the respective store where this coupon is valid which is another time saver. So instead of remembering and typing the store url separately to apply the coupon, we instantly get taken to the store in a separate tab.

9. There is also an option below the coupons to "See Applicable Products" where all a particular coupon is valid.


10. At the end of the page listing the coupons from a particular category, we can also find more information of that category which includes the listing of stores serving products from this category, ways to use 7coupons better and get maximum benefits etc.


11. While the above features of 7coupons website are amazing, wait till you hear about its "Money Saving Guide" program. In this program, we just have to drop our email id and tell the Money Saving Guide what category of product we are looking to purchase, and we will start receiving tips & tricks and best buy options. Plus, we also get the season's best deals and get informed of any upcoming coupons or flash sales. So this "Money Saving Guide" is a great way to make informed purchases by getting FREE Consultation on Online Purchases and get the best deals in the category we select. So there is no flooding of our mailbox with unwanted offers!


12. A consumer can also easily discontinue receiving updates from this website anytime they wish.

All in all, 7Coupons.in is a great website to grab latest offers, vouchers, coupon codes, promo codes, cashback offers and great sale and discounts on a vast variety of products right from clothes to fashion products to booking flights. 4 stars to it and I recommend this website to everyone looking to shop at the best, most economical prices. 



You should definitely check out this website for their latest free coupons and offers on online products.

#ARCBookReview: Faith In Every Footstep (Faith, Hope, and Love Book 1) by Wesley Banks


Title and Author: Faith In Every Footstep by Wesley Banks
No. of Pages: 193
Publication Date: December 6th 2016 by Chasing Pace Publishing
Genre: Contemporary Fiction

ARC Book Review:

I read and thoroughly enjoyed Wesley Banks' first book, Hope in Every Raindrop, last year. So when I heard about his upcoming second book, Faith In Every Footstep and was offered an ARC, despite having so many pending reviews, I jumped at the chance to read it!

I have to confess, I have been eagerly waiting for Wesley Banks' new book and am so happy to tell you that this one is again a stellar story. Mr. Banks' books showcase his love for dogs and bring to the readers a new perspective to our canine friends. His every dog character is unique and so lively that they jump right out of the pages and make you feel like you are witnessing them firsthand. 

I had loved King in Hope in Every Raindrop and was overjoyed to meet him again. This book precedes the story of Hope in Every Raindrop but both the books can be read as standalone stories.
The connection between the hero, Kyle and his dogs is so beautifully developed in this book that it left me awed and pleased. I loved the vivid scenes and the effortless storytelling that had me travelling with Kyle and his dogs as he braved hurdles and faced challenges but kept going, determined to achieve his goal.

This book has everything- soulful emotional play, thrilling adventure, a little romance, gripping storyline and an exemplary portrayal of the heartfelt connection between man and dog.

The plot execution is fluid and had me engaged throughout with some pretty unexpected twists and turns that forced me to finish this book in one sitting.

The only points that left me feeling a bit frustrated were the unexplained angle between Kyle and Jen; the somewhat cliffhanger ending and some events which will frustrate a reader who hasn't read Hope in Every Raindrop and so is unaware of Kyle's life a few years later.

All in all, Faith In Every Footstep by Wesley Banks is a through and through entertainer and I wholeheartedly recommend it to everyone. 4.5 stars out of 5 to it from me and I look forward to reading more from the author in the future.



I received an ARC from the author and the tour organizers. The above review is my honest and unbiased opinion and in no way influenced.

#AuthorInterview, #ARCBookReview and #BookBlitz: Faith In Every Footstep (Faith, Hope, and Love Book 1) by Wesley Banks

On the eve of one of mankind’s toughest races, accompanied by thirteen of America’s rarest dog breed, rookie musher Kyle Walker only has one thought in mind: win. Discovered in the lowlands of South Carolina, the Carolina grays have traveled over five thousand miles to face off in the 2003 Yukon Quest. But one dog stands above the rest—King.

When an unexpected storm strikes, Kyle Walker and the reigning champion are forced to turn back. Stranded at the checkpoint, Kyle and his dogs find solace in a young veterinarian with auburn hair and keen green eyes—Jenna Maynor.

In this storm another race is forming, one of an Inuit man racing to save his family. Presented with the choice to help, but at the risk of his and his dogs’ lives, Kyle Walker ventures into the unknown in search of a mom and two young daughters.

The Yukon Quest was founded on the premise that a dog driver and his team should be a self-sufficient unit capable of challenging varied terrain and severe weather. But these conditions may prove to be too much, even for Kyle and King.

Interview with Wesley Banks


Q1. Please tell us why we should read your book. Use one sentence only.

Faith In Every Footstep is Jack London meets Nicholas Sparks, and you will fall in love with Kyle Walker and his dog King.


Q2. Why did you did you decide to write Faith In Every Footstep?

I’ve always had this plot in the back of my mind, but it was only when fans of Hope In Every Raindrop kept calling for more of Kyle Walker and his dogs that I pulled the trigger.

Q3. Do you have a favorite character in Faith In Every Footstep? A least favorite?

I loved Kvothe from The Name of the Wind, and Vaelin Al Sorna from Blood Song

Q4. What is your process? Do you plan everything out before you begin writing or just go for it?

I have a general outline of the scenes I want to include before I start, but other than that I just dive in.

Q5. Computer? Typewriter? Pen and paper? What is your favorite way to write?

I pretty much only write on my laptop.

Q6. Coffee or Tea?

Neither. Water, apple juice, or mountain dew are my go to drinks.

Q7. What kind of background noise do you prefer when you are writing?

I prefer spoken word or motivational tracks. I’m not sure why, just what works for me.

Q8. What is your favorite genre to read?

Either fantasy or non-fiction.

Q9. Who is your favorite author?

Ralph Waldo Emerson, Michael Lewis, Patrick Rothfuss are a few.

Q10. What is the one book you think everyone should read?

Emerson’s Essays

Q11. What did you want to be when you grew up?

Shortstop for the New York Yankees.

Q12. Tell us three things about yourself that cannot be found on the Internet.

That’s tough, because last year I wrote this: http://wesleybanksauthor.com/25-things/
I’ll give it a try though:
  1. I love Wal-Mart’s mac ‘n cheese. Like I could eat it every day.
  2. I’m going on vacation in Thailand next March.
  3. My wife just signed up for a free month of Netflix, and I can’t stop re-watching One Tree Hill.
Q13. Any other books in the works? Goals for future projects?


I’ll be working on the third (and likely final) book of the Faith, Hope, Love series: Love And All That Is Lost. Not sure when it will be published, but likely mid 2017.

Hope In Every Raindrop: A Sled Dog Adventure and Romance (Faith, Hope, and Love Book 2)

Small towns have big stories. That was a lesson Katie's father taught her years ago. A lesson she's taken to heart. And right now, Katie is desperate for a big story.

Reeling from the recent loss of her father and with her agent breathing down her neck for the next book, the twenty-one-year-old writer picks a spot on the map and finds herself bound for a middle-of-nowhere town called Bishopville, South Carolina.

Taking a chance on the words of a local grocer, Katie stumbles upon a rare breed of dogs raised by the town doctor and his nephew Kyle. The only problem? Kyle isn't interested in telling stories--especially not to a big-city girl who can't seem to sit still. In an attempt to win him over as the clock winds down, Katie finds herself immersed in Kyle's world, doing everything but writing.

When inspiration finally strikes, Katie is faced with an unforeseen catastrophe and a truth she can no longer ignore. While she has come to love the dogs, the real story may be about Kyle Walker.
