Bonjour! Wonderful people.

How are you? Vous allez bien?

Well summer has arrived in Dubai. The super hot days are longer than the quiet peaceful nights. That time of the year has arrived when you just happen to stand out for a few minutes and the weather is trying its very best to make a  grilled hot kabab or tikka out of you. Its that kind of heat, where you just feel like your soul is melting away and you are left looking like a scarecrow. Damn, I painted some picture in your mind didn’t I ? 😀

On a more positive note, it is the time for ICE CREAM!  Repeat after me: I  scream, You scream, We all scream for…for …ICE CREAM! Yes  Bravo 🙂 No one is too old to say that!

So inspired from the colors of summer, our Recipe of the Day is PINK SORBET. A delicious fruity sorbet. The sorbet sold commercially has lots of sugar in it. The one we are making today is refined-sugar free, it has only pure, natural fruit sugar in it to sweeten it.

It’s a great treat for this boiling heat to cool down. It is great for those days when you just want to eat ice cream all day along, also a great accompaniment to your breakfasts/desserts. Yummy! So here we go.

TIME TO PREPARE: Half a day

Makes 1 box

INGREDIENTS:

Fresh Raspberries-15 Frozen for a few hours

Pear-2 small ones, chopped and frozen

Almonds-chopped

Water- 1 cup-per requirement

HOW TO PREPARE:

In a blender, blend together pear and raspberries until smooth. As shown in the images above. Keep in mind, you do have to blend well, so that would take some time. Add some water in to get a smoother texture.

But don’t add too much, you have to check continuously. Once you get a sorbet like texture, you can add in a few almonds, to give the sorbet a little crunch. Add in the sorbet in  a box, sprinkle in the almonds, cover the lid and freeze for 1 hour.

After 1 hour, remove it out and enjoy with family, friends or even just your own awesome self. Maybe you can try adding it on some hot pancakes, like below.

These are the famous and delicious 2 ingredient pancakes- just mashed bananas and eggs and some coconut oil and VOILA!

Enjoy my sugar-free sorbet. You can add your own toppings too if you like. I particularly think chocolate chips would go well too. Enjoy your summers and don’t forget to share your love. ❤ 🙂

Merci beaucoup et Salut! (thank you and bye 🙂 )

Bonjour Mes Amis! Tu vas bien? Hello folks, how are you?

As you can see, I am trying my hands on learning French. So far so good eh? Or should I say jusqu’ici tout va bien. I know it has been some time since I shared my ideas and thoughts with you guys, I havent exactly been feeling really well, mentally, emotionally and physically. Changing weather allergies, keeping the positivity and motivation up and running everyday especially when you are surrounded with the opposite of that.

Honestly, with all things that money can buy, I would really like to buy a life manual or a troubleshooting manual for life. I’m sure it would sell faster than hot cakes or croissants whatever you fancy 😛 Moving on.

Our AD POST of this week, is a Print Advertisement by Imperial Jewelers. The double page spread was in Cosmopolitan India magazine. It was printed for the May 2016 issue of the magazine.

The reason the advert has made it to our blog is because it’s so beautiful, everything is so beautiful about it.Firstly you have Diya Mirza, the Bollywood Actress as the model for the AD. Her look for this particular AD speaks of elegance, beauty, grace, feminity, simplicity and royalty.

On the second page you have the text ‘I am Dhairya-The patience to hold on’.Dhairya means patience in Hindi. It is also written in Hindi in the background. The imagery and text come together as a whole story rather than sub-parts of a story.

You think of a woman who is beautiful and strong, inside & out to choose this brand of jewelry. Someone who is calm yet determined to be victorious through the struggles of life. Someone who has a delicate face but she has this powerful strength in her eyes, which would make anybody think twice before they try to mess with her.

This collection of the brand is for the simple yet fierce woman of today. She has a mind of her own and is sort of like a rebel, doesn’t sacrifice her trueself for how society/media would like to see her as (flamboyant, pretentious, vain etc.).

The color scheme used compliment with the brand messages as well as the product (i.e the extremely beautiful choker necklace and earrings). Artistic paintings, vintage mirrors speak of regal elegance.

I also love the piece of jewelry that has been selected for this AD.It enhances Diya Mirza’s beauty with this simplistic design, it is not overly flamboyant in the way that it hides the woman’s natural beauty.

She is wearing white and the colour signifies peace and positivity and purity.  I absolutely love how the AD communicates modesty, strength, beauty and confidence so effortlessly. I am sure, many women like me would connect to the brand as we share similar values.

The name of the company itself, Imperial-Since 9 generations, conveys credibility and trust to the customers as it is an established successful business with family values at its core. They have got the ‘Call To Action’ and the mandatory information on point too. The phone numbers, website and social media pages are mentioned to not miss out on the instant connection with the customer.

So here you go guys, this is why I love this AD. Any creative ideas and thoughts are always welcome, you know that 😀

Share your ideas. Share your love.  ❤ 🙂
