A Laque’y experience – Nail Fashion

Have you ever seen videos of nails being shaped & polished & painted? More than makeup or apparel fashion, I love nail fashion. One of the first visual treats I enjoyed when I joined Instagram was poring over accounts which showcased Nail fashion & art. There’s something very therapeutic about watching nails being coloured and painted. Somewhere I harboured a secret wishlist to get my own nails fashioned.

When Laque Nail and Lash Lounge in Mumbai invited my friend Raising Karma & I, for a free trial session I was excited to go. However, I did have my apprehensions because I had never got nail extensions done and I had a toddler around the house to be looked after. When I shared this concern with the team at Laque, they assured me that nail extensions feel very natural and do not hinder the normal course of the day where we are needed to be hands-on moms.

“Head to toe” care with Himalaya baby wipes

Baby wipes – the word is enough to set flight to a plethora of ways in which we can use them. If I had my way I would award the “best product ever” title to baby wipes. While I have tried as much as possible to go the sustainable way and use cloth and water on most occasions, I will admit that this is not always a convenient or practical solution always, especially on the go. I have then resorted to using baby wipes.

Finding the right baby wipe is a matter of great deliberation and I invested quite some time on this when #babyT was a newborn. It was obvious that a chemically laden wipe was not going to fit the bill. We wanted something that was natural, gentle and yet did its job well. Plus it had to be versatile so that I could use it for the unimaginable messes & spills that those seemingly innocent babies can get up to. Continue reading

Remove the awkwardness out of asking for gifts with registries

For #babyT’s second birthday we knew we wanted a big, fat birthday party. Planning began months in advance for all the small details. However, there was one scary monster lurking under the covers – birthday gifting. I was unprepared for the nightmares I got about all the gifts we would receive which we did not want.

My biggest fears were mass market toys – yes the ones with flashy lights, migraine-inducing music & suspect paint quality. I wish people knew that we love open-ended, eco-friendly & safe, wooden toys. To be honest, we already owned most of the age-appropriate toys, so doubling up of toys was also a concern. And then don’t even get me started on clothes – I have clothes which babyT will get to wear to his 10th birthday already. Get the drift? I can’t wait for when my kids are a whole lot older and I could just buy league accounts for them (I’m assuming that they’ll be big gamers in the future though!)

Rajma & Roasted Beetroot Hummus

Rajma Hummus do these two words really go together? Well, let me tell you the backstory. I am a big lover of the North Indian staple and comfort food – Rajma (Kidney beans) chawal (rice). But everyone at home does not share my passion for the same. And my baby boy finds the beans too big to chew on. Rajma chawal gets made very rarely in our household then.

However last week when I was buying grocery from Amazon India, my eyes fell on a pack of the wine red Rajma or Kidney beans by Popular Essentials and I didn’t even think twice before adding it to cart. Once the rajma arrived I drifted into fragrant memories of Rajma chawal, eaten on cold mornings in Delhi when I travelled there for work. But the question remained – how do I get my family to eat Rajma and that too happily. 🙂 Continue reading

4 easy steps to choose the best R.O. water purifier

What is that one device for the kitchen which no home can ignore? A refrigerator? A microwave oven? A mixer-grinder? You probably answered yes to all these suggestions. But are you sure you are not forgetting something even more critical? What about the very basic need of every human being – water! The need to safeguard your family from water-borne diseases are the reasons for the growing use of water purifiers. Water purifiers are not just a luxury but a necessity in every household today. But how much do we know about which is the best water purifier and even more important, how do we choose the best one? Continue reading

Why I love Online Shopping for kids-wear

Online shopping has come of age today and if there is a product that can be even thought of, it will be available online. With babyT everything that I ever used or made him wear has been bought online. In fact, I think if I ever walked into a brick and mortar store for kids-wear I wouldn’t have a clue how to shop. This took me back to his newborn days where I was drowning in all my hormonal swirls and being a breastfed baby meant I couldn’t really be away from babyT for long periods of time. At times like these, it was online shopping that saved the day for me.

Shopping online for kids-wear especially has been a blessing because it is super convenient, offers an unimaginable variety of clothes, facilitates comparison as per whatever criteria you have for selection and the cherry on the cake is the exemplary customer service that the e-retailers offer.
