I had the honor of being the featured blogger in this week’s Masala! magazine. Do look me up 🙂

Hooray for yet another long weekend! What does an ideal weekend mean to you? This is exactly what Wkend Magazine by Khaleej Times asked me 🙂 Do look up my little write-up. Happy Long Weekend peeps!

If you are following me on my social media handles, you’ve already heard the news: The Tezzy Files has been nominated yet again for the very prestigious category of ‘Best Blog’ by Ahlan Masala!


The Tezzy Files turns 2 this month, and this is the second time the blog has been listed by Masala! I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to see my blog on this list of some of the best known bloggers in our city.

If you enjoy reading my posts and feel I deserve to win, please do spare me a minute and cast your vote! You can also win some pretty amazing prizes just for placing your votes. All you have to do is sign into www.masalaawards.com

Much love,


In our household, we are pretty addicted to Master Chef Australia. Hubby and I take great pleasure in putting bets on contestant rankings, and I’ve always been in awe with the judging skills and straight-up informative feed back Chefs Gary, George and Matt seem to be able to give at the drop of a hat.

We are foodies. I blog about food, yet actually being a judge at a cooking contest perturbs me. And then I had the honor of being invited onto the judging panel of the annual Grandma’s Recipe Contest in Arabian Courtyard & Spa this month! Absolutely honored, I decided to give it a go and put on my Master Chef hat 🙂

When I got asked to share beauty tips with Abu Dhabi Week, I was beyond flattered. Abu Dhabi Week is undoubtedly the most widely read weekly in the capital, and to get featured here alongside well-known local beauty celebrities is an honor indeed.

I talked to Abu Dhabi Week about Strobing (you can read more on this in my earlier blog post). Here’s the feature in Abu Dhabi Week (17-23 Jan, 2016):

Thank-you for the coverage Abu Dhabi Week!

ahlan masala awards best asian blogger 2015

So I didn’t win the ‘Best Asian Blogger’ title, but am super flattered to be nominated among the top 5 ✌ . Congrats Lokesh Dharmani from the F by Lokesh blog, so very well deserved.

Thank-you Ahlan! Masala for yet another fabulous #masalaawards2015 event, had so much fun! Met one of my favorite Bollywood stars, Simi Garewal (she’s even lovelier in person!) and even had a quick chat with the stunning Jacqueline Fernandes backstage! Oh and that’s me giving away an award for best lounge in Dubai (congrats AKS Nights!). 

The Masala awards makes me feel like a celeb and loved getting a chance to dress up Desi (Indian). Will be posting an outfit post real soon, so stay tuned!
