Shea Moisture 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Shampoo and Conditioner Review




Shea moisture is certified organic, natural and cruelty free hair care brand. I have been following Shea Moisture on twitter for quite some time and saw their products in Boots stores as well. For last few years, I am trying my best to go for natural hair products. I am eliminating products with SLS, parabens and silicon in my hair care routine. I don’t have any extensive or lavish routine anyway. But a nice warm oil massage and a good combination of shampoo + conditioner which don’t strip natural hair oils, cleanse scalp properly without leaving any nasty residue and make hair healthy looking, is all I want. Since I got a baby, oil massage is just a fancy thought now and I rely more on my shampoo and conditioner.

Missguided Babe Power: An Insta Worthy Perfume



Missguided Babe Power was the fastest selling perfume, outselling Paco Rabbane and Dior when it launched last year. I didn’t even know that there was a perfume by Missguided and it was already a smashing hit, until I received it. That is because it is not the brand where I would normally look for perfume.

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.

My Postnatal Skin Condition and Lancôme Advance Génifique Eye Cream to the Rescue



Throughout my first pregnancy, I enjoyed better skin days. My skin was behaving very well. I was very conservative when it came to skincare during pregnancy. I was drinking plenty of water and was using few basic skincare products. However, once I left hospital, my skin became horribly dry and patchy. Perhaps I consumed huge volume of gas and air which tends to suck all the moisture out of skin. Furthermore I had a terrible postnatal body rash which crept up to chin area.

Meet My Baby Girl



Yes!!!! I became a mum of an adorable baby girl. I have been waiting for this moment for a very long time and now I am holding a bundle of joy in my arms. It is surreal but it is definitely not a dream.

Organic Shop Hair Care Review



Organic Shop is a new hair care brand to me which offers 98% natural origin ingredients based products. Organic shop hair care products are SLS and parabens free. I received a set of shampoo, conditioner and hair mask in raspberry and acai fragrance range which is design to boost volume, strengthen and thicken hair. My hair lacks all these characteristics because my hair is thin in texture, straight and oily and does not have lots of volume.

Travel Essentials and KITT Air Range Travel Pillow Review




I will make a confession before starting this post, that when it comes to packing for travelling, I am not a light packer. I need literally everything I own (in my head not in reality) when I am going away even for a day. My hand bag is always stuffed with “essentials” I believe my life depends on. I am an anxious traveller. However, as I became more frequent traveller, I learnt to narrow down my “essentials”. Not going to lie, such a short list gives me anxiety sometime but I try really hard now to stick to few items.

Are You Spring Ready? OOTD



It sounds really ridiculous to talk about spring, when weather is all getting crazy at the moment. But as a matter of fact, brands have put Christmas 2018 to the bed by now and started working on spring 2019 collections already. So it is fair enough that we prepare for April showers now.

As the time passes by I am more inclined towards online shopping. Almost more than 60% of my shopping is now online.

They mainly sell pharmacy products but also sell beauty, skincare and electronic beauty and grooming gadgets at reasonable price. You can also find a handful but thoughtful collection of perfumes at discounted price as well.

The Ordinary Buffet Serum Review



When a skincare brand is this economical that I can get products to address any skin issue, then why not collect them all. And I am exactly doing that nowadays. A month ago, I did another haul from The Ordinary, some items were old favourites repurchased, while few were new products I wanted to try for my recent skin concerns. As it is winter and my skin doesn’t cope with the weather very well. Hence I needed some light weight serum which provides instant hydration to revitalize skin without being heavy.
