Affordable Advent Calendars at Chemist 4 U


It’s that magical time of the year where advent calendars are popping up here and there like mushrooms in garden after rainy days. For last few years this trend is getting stronger and doesn’t seem to be dying anytime sooner. I love the idea of advent calendars, it is like shopping every day and the “surprise” element adds a nice touch.

Weleda Calendula Babycare Top to Toe Set


Ever since I got my baby girl, Weleda baby products were on my radar, especially Calendula nappy change cream. I didn’t hear any bad review about this cream till date. So naturally I was curious. However, I was not using many products other than coconut oil on my new born; I waited for a little longer to actually try it. In response to one of my tweet, people at Weleda were kind enough to send me Weleda Calendula Top to Toe set to try.

Toys & Child Development ft: Hape Battery Powered Engine Set


Using toys to entertain children is not a new world approach to keep little minds busy. It is as old as man. I have seen toys made out of clay and mud, excavated from the ruins of world second ancient civilisation, Indus valley.  So, why the need of toys for kids even felt by mankind? It could be for the obvious reason to keep them busy while adults take on with their lives. However, I feel toys are miniature form of our world making it relevant to children.

What Was In My Baby's Hospital Bag


And what we actually used

This post is so late that it is sheer embarrassment to put it online. My little nugget is nearly five months old. But I decided to publish this post anyway. There are two reasons; One, as I took photos for the post already, right before leaving for hospital. Second, I read numerous blog posts and watched many videos about what to pack in hospital bag which were years old and found them helpful. So it means that no matter how old these posts are, they are always helpful for new parents as a reference guide.

First Three Months of Motherhood: The highs & the lows



So, it has been three months that my darling baby girl arrived. So much has changed, yet it feels like she was here with me all these past years. She was not stranger to me when I first held her in my arms. It was like I knew her face ever since; the feel of her skin was familiar, her new baby smell was not new to me.

The Art of Dodging Delivery Charges




I love the traditional way of shopping – making plan, taking time out, getting ready and then browsing stores to find the perfect item. And when I find something worth buying, then going to the till, exchanging few nice comments and little pleasant conversations with person over the till, sometimes receiving and giving compliments on purchases whilst standing in a queue, all these little chit chats and socialising adds up and create a wholesome experience. And the best part, no shipping charges. A fuel or resource used to get to the mall is also part of this experience. In the end a cup of coffee closes the day.
