Summer fruits to our rescue!

Here in West Bengal, summer means all sweaty 😦 In order to stay fresh one needs to take of their diet & what can be better than having a bowl full of fruits! Yes! No matter how hot & humid summer can be,but I lovvve it bcoz of the amazing fruits I get to eat in summer. Today I’m gonna share some popular summer fruits which can be eaten during summer.

1.MANGO

 

Well apart from being my favorite fruit, Mango is also most popular summer fruit here in West Bengal. The famous ‘Aam Panna’ made of mangoes, can give you much relief once you have it after being burned in sun. West Bengal has varieties of Mango types – Himsagar (my favorite), Langra, Fazli, Gulabkhas, Bombai, Amrapalli, Kishan Bhog.

2.Watermelon

 

This is that perfect fruit which keeps us moving in this hot humid summer with it’s sweet watery taste. According to me a glass of watermelon juice is refreshing as well as healthy. Hydrates us instantly & is also filled with major vitamins like A, B6 & C.

3.Tender coconut

 

Tender coconut water helps to sooth your body in burning sun. It’s cooling effects works like wonder making you cool inside out. It also eliminates the risk of kidney stone. I think having this instead of cold drinks in much better because this is chemical free & pure natural. It acts as an anti-dote to the side-effects of medicines.

4.Lychee

 

This tropical fruit is tasty & healthy as well. As the summer arrives vendor can be seen selling these yummy delights. It increases metabolism & also lowers the risk of heart problems. It’s nutritious cooling effects helps to beat the summer heat.

5. Palm

 

Now this is one of the tastiest & coolest fruit to save yourself for scorching sun of summer. This is one of the most popular vendor items during summer in my locality. West Bengal is filled with palm trees, so I’m glad that we won’t ever be missing this amazing fruit. It is also known as Taal/Ice apple/Nunugu.

 

Hope you try all of these ASAP if you haven’t tried them yet. These 5 delicious fruits are loaded with health benefits & they make my summer awesome. I wait for summer just to sink my teeth into all of these 🙂 That’s all folks! Keep looking for my blog posts. Have a great day ahead.

Swipe Konnect 5.1 Review

Hi friends,

Today I’m gonna blog about my new pick… Swipe Konnect 5.1. I know it’s a bit late to post a review but I believe in a phrase “Better late than never” 🙂 We all do right?

DSC_1584

I needed to buy a smartphone, I was very much confused as my budget was very low like below 5k. So I was busy with online researching for a good enough smartphone which looks good too (I know too much to ask for 😛 ). Then I came across this lovely looking Swipe Konnect 5.1. Price was within my budget (4.3 k), available in 3 lovely colors (Black,Blue and Red) and last but not the least attractive features! I looked for some reviews and found most reviews are positive, so without wasting time I got the blue one.

DSC_1585

With a great display size of 5 inches, the Swipe Konnect 5.1 comes with 1 GB RAM and 8 GB internal storage expandable upto 32 GB. This dual sim smartphone is powered by 1.2GHz quad-core processor. A selfie-lover like me is amazed with it’s 3.2 MP front camera, and also primary one of 8 MP. I can say I’m loving Swipe Konnect 5.1. Inside the box there was-

  1. Mobile set
  2. AC Power Adapter
  3. Headset
  4. USB Cable
  5. Battery
  6. User Manual
  7. Warranty Card

I’ve listed a few pros and cons according to my experience till now. Hope you find it useful.

Pros –

  • Good battery backup of 3000 mAh
  • Rear & front camera of 8 MP & 3.2 MP respectively
  • Sleek size, weights 156 g
  • Great display  of 5 inches
  • Available in cool colors (Red, Blue & Black)
  • Pocket-friendly
  • 1.2 GHz  quad-core processor
  • Dual sim
  • Sound quality is also good

Cons –

  • Headset provided is not comfy for ears (I’m not talking about the sound)
  • Heats up while you charge it and use it at the same time
  • Camera zoom is not that good

Fellas, If you are looking for a smartphone within the price range of 5k, must have great looks, nice front camera, good display & battery backup (at least I look for these 😀 ) then Swipe Konnect 5.1 is a must-buy for you. I’m having a great experience using it 🙂

I hope my review would help in case you are having difficulty in choosing a smartphone within 5k. You people can share your thoughts too regarding the same in comments section 🙂

2. After applying your nail paint, dip your newly painted nails inside a bowl full of cold water for sometime. It’ll make the nail paint dry fast and also give it a glowing look. I know it sounds wacky but it really worked with me !
