How to Organize Inbox by Labelling Emails


I'm so thankful to my best friend Mrudula that she introduced me to this method of organizing emails. You know how crazy I get while organizing anything. I was delighted when she told me this.
Check out the brilliant way to organize them as I teach you how to label emails:


ADDING LABELS
1. Select the mails you want to label under one category. (This is Gmail.com)
2. Go to the 'Label' symbol (shown in the picture above) and type whatever you want to. I've written 'Blog' as my label.
3. After naming the label, click on '"Blog" (create new)' option.
4. Save the label from the message box that appears next on your screen.


CHANGING THE COLOUR OF LABELS
1. In order to change the colour of label, towards your left side, under the above shown options, click on the upside-down triangle next to your label. 
2. Click on the first option, i.e., 'Label color'.


3. Give whatever colour that suits the label. For example, personal will go under pink, financial (related to tax, etc.) will go under green, office will go under blue, and so on. (You can also add a custom color!)

USAGE OF LABELS
Once you've put all emails under labels, your inbox becomes organized. The next time you want to access emails under the label 'Blog', you just have to click on the label 'Blog', which you can see below the options 'Inbox', 'Important', 'Sent Mail', etc. After clicking on a particular label, you find all the emails under that label! 

Love this tip and I'm glad my friend passed it on to me. 

Have you ever tried labelling your emails?

Egg Rice Recipe


After many months, finally a recipe for you guys. If you think that I don't cook nowadays, then you're terribly wrong. In fact, I cook more than I've ever cooked. I make rotis and other bhaajis quite frequently. I cook one item almost everyday. I just am so used to cooking now, that I'm not surprised by the taste anymore. (Also, now, without even tasting the food, my dish is perfect!)

I had made this one when my parents were out of town due to some work. I cooked this for me and my elder brother and he loved it!

You guys enjoy this delicious recipe too (which is mine, wholly):

INGREDIENTS
  • Rice
  • Eggs
  • Tomatoes
  • Onions
  • Garam Masala
  • Pav Bhaaji Masala 
  • Salt
  • Red Chili Powder
  • Shahi Biryani Masala
  • Dry Mango Powder
  • Butter
  • Oil
  • Cumin Seeds
  • Ginger Garlic Paste
  • Bay Leaf
  • Raisins
  • Cashews
  • Kashmiri Chilli
STEPS


1. Take rice according to the quantity you need.
2. In a pressure cooker vessel, add rice, butter, salt, and cumin seeds.
3. Boil with lesser quantity of water and keep the rice aside.
4. Boil eggs and keep them aside.


5. For the gravy, in a vessel, add butter. You can either use oil or butter. I had used 50% of each.
6. Once the butter heats up, add cumin seeds, and let them burst. Add one bay leaf and kashmiri chilli.
7. Immediately add finely chopped onions and give a good fry until the onions look golden brown.
8. Add salt and masalas/powder.
9. Add ginger garlic paste and let the mixture fry.
10. Add finely chopped tomatoes.
11. Sprinkle chopped cashews and raisins over it.



12. Add boiled eggs (that are cut in half) to the gravy. Lightly, put gravy on eggs and make sure that the eggs appear red (because of the gravy).


13. Next, loosen the rice grains lightly by hand or a spoon.



14. While serving, add rice to the plate, pour gravy on top, and place the eggs carefully. Enjoy with raita!

Save Contact Numbers of Hospitals in Your Phone Book

 
If you've not done this already, do it right now. Saving hospital-contacts in your phone-book is what you should do as soon as you buy a cellphone. Save the numbers (including their emergency or ambulance numbers) in your phone. If there are multiple numbers for one hospital, save all of them. You never know when you would need them.

Search for all the hospitals near your house and save the phone numbers. Also, save numbers of hospitals near the areas you most frequently go to, including your office, college, boyfriend's locality, etc. Additionally, save numbers of hospitals near your parent's house, if you don't live with them.

This is highly important. Not just for you and your family, but saving contacts will be useful for an emergency anytime. You're walking on street one day and there's an accident, without any due, you would immediately dial up to the nearest hospital. No need to search for a hospital on internet and then search the number and then call them up. Remember, it's an emergency. You see an accident, you take out cell, dial hospital, call the ambulance. You can save someone's life by this; imagine!

Therefore, I request you guys, as soon you're done reading this line, save the contacts, and in return save a life.
xoxo
