Cane House

Summer is here for good and the temperatures are soaring high. The best way to beat the heat is to stay hydrated sipping on favorite cooling juices. Nothing beats a big glass of cool sugarcane juice in the hot summer season. It's the good old favorite drink for all.
Cane house situated in the heart of model colony is an oasis of trees giving respite from the road outside. It's like you have stepped into a new work altogether. Green plants and rustic tables made of bricks greet you. A small place but crowded with youngsters, couples, families and oldies alike. All enjoying their famous yummy and fresh sugar cane juice served in jumbo glasses. Have one and you are sorted. They also serve some mouth watering snacks as well as juices and shakes. It is quite light on the pocket and appeals the taste buds highly. 
One can sit here for hours and enjoy the peace , quiet and chirping of birds. But those thinking of going there for a juice over meeting, think twice they strictly do not entertain meetings :) it's a super relax and laid back place strictly to unwind.
Come fall in love with this hidden place.
Its all about raw nature so expect no frills. Fun and food unedited.

Their veg cheese maggi is yummy.
hot Bhajias with chilled juice- Thumb's up

Love for Chindian @ Uncle's Kitchen

Authenticity is an important factor in all aspects. In food too it plays a major role. We always crave for authentic cuisine and places are ranked on the authenticity of food they serve.
However we Indians always love to add our own signature Indian ness to all cuisines. Making our interpretation of that dish. Majority of people love Chinese cuisine. I am no different in that aspect Chinese food is my favorite but Indian Chinese or better known as chindian food is what I crave majority of times. For those of you who are wondering what is Chindian food - Indian + Chinese = Chindian. Chinese with a tadka and spices of Indian. According to me Chindian too is an authentic cuisine, now where else in the world would you get such Chinese. 
The other day I was craving for some mouth watering Chindian food and thanks to research on Zomato and PEO members Hubby and I decided to dine at Uncles Kitchen in K.p. I was happy with the decision to the T as what you get over here is some really mouth watering Chindian food satisfying the Indo Chinese   Tug of taste buds inside you. 
A small cozy place tucked in the by lanes of Kp. Relish the mouthwatering flavors in simplicity. You will see it crowded at all meal hours. They serve really good meal combos from 11am to 4pm. We gorged on our favorite, must have starter chicken chilly which was perfect, crispy, spicy, tangy and soft and juicy. I loved the fact that the capsicum was still a bit crunchy the way it is supposed to be. The portions here are huge. We couldn't finish our chicken pecking gravy to go with Chicken Schezwan rice. The gravy was tangy and mildly sweet spicy with ample of chicken. The rice could have been bit more spicy but then again my spice meter is really very high. However the Schezwan chutney made it up for it. Very laid back place for relaxing meal. Do try their Schezwan triple fried rice with crispy noodles and prawn soup, tom yum soup,  some good old Hakka noodles, chilly garlic noodles, they also serve some really nice Thai and Malaysian cuisine. The service is relaxed and the value for money is really good. The place is easy on your pocket and high on taste. 

Definitely going back :)

JUICE for Hair

I have yet to meet any girl who doesn't like to be pampered. Pampering our self is something we girls love to do ( guys are you taking the clue). Leave any girl in the salon and she would be lost their for hours. I myself am a sucker for a good day at the spa or salon. I can spend a crazy time inside getting pampered silly ;p I am quite vain you see.
This weekend I did just what I love - spending an afternoon at the salon, getting pampered silly and enjoying every minute of it courtesy Juice salon at J.W.Marriott.

As soon as I got an invitation from JUICE, I just went oh definitely yes! yay!
Juice has always been one of my favorite salons however this was my first time at Juice J.W.Marriott and let me assure you that I was bowled over right from the start till the end with this mind blowing experience. No sooner than I arrived at the plush property of J.W.Marriott Pune and started thinking how the salon will turn out to be, let me tell you its very difficult to match the beauty and grandeur of this huge hotel. I was surprised to find out that the salon indeed exceeded my expectations. A cozy luxurious salon, highly equipped with value for money and amazing service is what you will get.

Let me take you on a small tour.

The Reception

Waiting area - Await your turn while sipping on some Tea/ coffee
( my appointment was bang on time )

This is where all the action takes place.

They use - TIGI, S Factor and Loreal.
You can even Purchase S factor products from the salon.

After torturing my hair for a really long time, what with the holi, road trips, bike rides and chemical products. They were screaming for help.
Help soon came in the disguise of Chetan my stylist for the day.
He suggested to go in for The Gold Detox Treatment.
They have just introduced this and I am sure this is going to be a sure hit.

The Gold Detox Treatment by JUICE aims at relieving the hair from damage which clarifies, purifies, energizes, revitalizes, detoxifies, nourishes, protects and returns the hair and scalp to a balanced state. The treatment which lasts for 70 minutes involves a head message with exotic oils rich in Vitamin E, Omega 3 to sooth the scalp, followed by shampooing with Argan oil light weight based shampoo that deeply nourishes and softens hair.
To round it off, the treatment is followed by a deep conditioning session with a pack of hair oils such as cotton seed oil, grape seed oil and avocado oil. One rinse and a fabulous blow dry later the hair is styled with Argan vapor to seal all the natural properties the hair has received during this treatment.
The result was fabulous, this treatment is especially for hair which has weakened due to harsh chemicals, coloring, pollution and hair treatments. It really helps to strengthen the hair.
It is suggested for 5 sittings done once in every 15 days. After which they suggest it once a month. The treatment comes at a modest price of Rs 2200 which I think is totally worth it. I highly recommend it.
I suggest have a look at their Hair spa treatments, they have a vast variety available. Consult their expert and you will be directed in the right direction. The Hair spa Treatments range from Rs 450 to Rs 2200. I swear by their Hair styling and hair cuts and have been their regular customer since a long time.
I am not a big nail girl but love indulging in Manicures and Pedicures, They have an impressive Nail Studio with an amazing collection of Nail arts. Those who love their long nails will be glued to their nail station.
 For more information visit their website.
Now time for a quick glimpse of my day at JUICE.

All ready to start

The awesome head massage followed by some quick zzz and refreshing Green Tea, some Femina Gossip. What more a can a girl ask for? Complete Paradise.

The leave in conditioners and oils gave a nice soothing cooling effect on the scalp after the massage - very relaxing indeed.

My stylist explained me and gave me a lot of suggestions and remedies for my hair.

After a good wash, when Chetan was busy washing my hair and I was enjoying the Massage chair.

After a good blow dry.

The final product.. I was so happy to get back my soft, silky and smooth traces and basked in its glory. I am in love with JUICE for returning the lost beauty of my hair. I am all glued to their hair treatments. Thanks a lot for having me over and showing me a new hair care heaven.
What are you guys waiting for make an appointment at the nearest JUICE and sit back relax and the let the professionals pamper you completely.
