Increased stress levels leads to Hypertension; each stressful situation faced by an individual makes them physiologically older than their chronological age. This leads to a greater risk of getting Coronary Heart Diseases at a younger age. How should you change your lifestyle if you are suffering from heart disease? Read the following points below:

Are you a foodie? Of course you are! We love food and want to explore more options in food to satisfy our taste buds. This hunger took me to Noida Bar Exchange. When you go to the mall with friends for fine dine yet a youthful place where you can chill you might not find it in game zone. But Noida bar exchange is like "a secret hideout" in Samaash. You have food and drinks over meaningful and meaningless conversation with friends. This restaurant is inspired by the concept of "stock exchange" and converted it to "bar exchange". The prices of beverages changes with increase and decrease in demand. They also have screens which display the rates of the beverages which start from lowest Rs40/- and then goes up according to the demand.

Every other day at coffee table I hear people talk about being an entrepreneur and making their business large. But one thing I have always believed in is that a new idea is not always successful if it is not planned and worked around properly. When it comes to working on a new idea you have to calculate all aspects of growth and failure. Recently students of Pearl Academy, India’s leading institution in design, fashion, creative businesses and media showcased their ideas which were way beyond imagination. Padma Bhushan Dr M B Athreya, Indian Author, Educationist & Management Advisor spoke about 'creative marketing strategy'. He explained that self management model consist of eight important steps: Physical fitness, Calm maturity, Intellectual depth, Material Wealth, Spiritual values and Optimizing Human Potential. For an idea to grow all the above elements are important. Dr M B Athreya also enlighten students on the "KASH MODEL" which is:-

A-Attitude & Values
H-Habits of work and Life

Students presented their ideas which were not only practical but also need of the hour. There presentation was reflection of their creative thinking and eye to understand huge potential which luxury market has.

Chief Guest, Mr. Jayant Sinha, Minister of State for Civil Aviation said, “I am delighted to see the student work and their creative business ideas. The creative business and luxury market offers huge potential for these students to be successful in their chosen domains. This generation of budding entrepreneurs is thinking about building a global size business and have those benchmarks. It is important to plan scalable business ideas to succeed. I am sure with all the brilliant training and education that you have got at Pearl Academy, all of you will play a significant role in what we call as making of a ‘New India’.

Presentation was followed by felicitation ceremony where students who have showcased their ideas at international level were felicitated. Pearl Academy has been one of those institutes which believes in bringing out creativity of students and give wings to there ideas.  After felicitation ceremony students discussed their research on Demonetization and its impact on the market with the panel.

The world know that pearl portfolio is all about creative minds and fashion beyond imagination. It is perfect blend of compassion and liveliness, innovation and creation. Students of pearl academy showcased their creativity in exhibition hall where threads of their imagination where weaved together to reality. Priya yadav who is student showcased creative pieces connected us to nature where Astha Jains's collection was contemporary and young. Fiszza showcased her conceptual wedding planning which was all about being quirky yet traditional and Anand Rati showcased innovation in recycled products. Plethora of ideas under one roof can only happen at a fashion school which believes in their students and let there imagination fly high.

Sometimes all you need to do is slip into your most comfortable shoes and take a Walk!

Life is a long road with bumps and smooth surface. All you need to do is just keep moving. At times to take the right decisions all you need is "A Walk" . A walk which is going to be long but you are going to just be yourself and figure out what you want from life. I just took a walk in my sketchers to take the most important decision of my career. I got these sketchers from which is reliance store.

Don’t be afraid of looking good. Be afraid of Not!

I have always admired celebrities for their looks and the way they carry themselves. At times I used to wonder what they do to maintain themselves. The answer to this question and many others were given by VLCC. VLCC is a name known to all is mostly associated with slimming services. Not many people know that they are a pioneer in beauty and salon services as well. The Vampire facial which all celebrities swear was brought in India by VLCC. You ask me from where I get all this info?

Those difficult days...

Yes those difficult days come every month and bring a lot of uneasiness and discomfort. Especially if this those days if you have "UNPANNED" adventure trip with your friends, then what to do? Leave it or live with it! But with new whisper Ultra Soft you can be super active and enjoy to your fullest. Recently, I went to Rishikesh for adventure sport where we did rock climbing, repelling, bungee jumping, cliff jumping. When my super active friends told me on Friday evening that we are going to Rishikesh tonight, I was feeling that why today, as theses were those difficult days? Can’t we plan a week later? But they didn't agree and I took a call that yes I am going. I packed by bag in 5min and packed whisper ultra soft as well. We were awake all night travelling in the bus which was not a comfortable journey at all but yes things became easy with whisper. Want to know the details of the product? Read below:

My Mom used to always say:

"We make a living by what we get and we make a life by what we GIVE."

I am Richa and I am a student of The FMS College. My mom's words always ring a bell in my mind as they come from experience. But I could have never found the true meaning of her above words if I wouldn’t have come across this initiative of Ezee which is #EzeeHugs. Ezee a detergent brand came up with #EzeeHugs campaign this winter where in we were asked to donate our old woolens to the underprivileged. Godrej Ezee collaborated with my college, The FMS for #EzeeHugs campaign. The whole idea just rang a bell in my mind and reminding me of what my mom said. I decided that I am going to be a part of this initiative by not only donating woolens but also by extending my helping hand towards it and making it happen.

My mom always says: "the best foundation you can ever wear is glowing healthy skin." It is very easy to achieve a glowing healthy skin but to maintain it is a real tough job. It gets tougher when winters are in there full colors. As we enter January, first month of the new year, cold soothing breeze of winters gets harsh on your skin making it dry and cakey. Even beauties blessed with oily skin have a tough time fighting brutal and merciless cold winds.

A good tea makes everything better!

Life is rollercoster ride which has its turns, its adrenaline rush moments and check points. The best part is we only remember the happiness. Everyday when in the evening after returning from office I see my father having HOT cup of lemon tea with my mom makes me feel that there does comes a time when you know you are content with life, content with what you achieved.Since I was a kid, I used to see my parent discussing things over a cup of tea everyday in the evening and I used to wonder why only tea? But now I understand evening tea with someone you have a connection works wonders for you. It makes things work and if not work then it helps you find a way to make things work.

Good food EQUALS TO Good mood.

I am a foodie and I strongly believe that good food can bring a smile to your face. My mom used to say: Way to a man's heart is via his tummy and I feel it’s the same for girls as well. If a man wants to win my heart he should know cooking :P If he doesn’t know how to cook then definitely he should know the best restaurants in town. As Valentine’s season is just round the corner I am sure your guys would be planning something nice for your bae and would want to spend quality time, BUT where?? Let me help you guys... DineOut is the Answer!

Life is moving faster and faster and we want to achieve our goals as soon as possible. We want to look our best every time we step out of our house. But at times it becomes challenging to visit the salon for getting the job done because of long waiting lines. What if you get salon at home? Sounds impossible? I bet its not!
