Slurrp Farm cookies review….

Hello all ! So today I am sharing with you my review on much awaited slurrp farm cookies which I have been giving my baby since 2 months.

When I started giving solids to my baby I always thought there should be some snacks or biscuits that should be specially made for kids. Then after few weeks I come across slurrp farm . I ordered the ragi and choclate flavoured cookies from amazon. I was really excited to taste this flavour.

The taste of the cookies was up to the mark it has a flavour of choclate and cinnamon and the main point it is made of Ragi which is very good for growing babies and it is easy digestable.

About Slurrp Farm

What they claim

All our recipes begin with what our grandmothers made for us as kids. We discuss them in our home kitchen with friends, and refine them with experts in paediatric nutrition.

Ingredients as mentioned:

What I like about the cookies:

  • They are delicious because of choclate flavour your kids will love.
  • They are very soft can be given to baby if they still don’t have teeth as my baby got his first tooth after one year so it’s a good option other biscuits are little bit hard.
  • It’s easily available on Amazon.in
  • Love their packing.

What I didn’t like :

  • The price is high as they are just cookies. They are of Rs.99 and contains 18 cookies.

Well I regularly buy them now. Will love to try their other flavours and other products as my kid grows.

Thank you Slurrp Farm!

How much Freedom should be given to kids…..

Raising up kids in today’s environment is not an easy task. Nowadays children are more smart more active more intelligent then we were as kids. Kids should be raised in a happy environment. They should be given freedom in some aspects of life and should be controlled in other aspects of life. After all kids are parents responsibility .

Kids should be given freedom to grow on their pace . Means when a child is born the people around start comparing your child does not sleep much , your child has not started crawling has not started walking . So we as parents become worried and start forcing things on them , there is a time when your baby will start to walk you can’t force them you can help them when they need but you can’t force , you have to set them free.

Similarly when they grow up you can teach them difference between good and bad but you can’t control what friends they make because if you control them they will be against you. So keep an eye on them be polite with them try to be friend with them in every phase of life.

So give them freedom but always be alert what they do ,where they go ,who are their friends , what they watch on television or social media. 
Most important give them freedom of speech to talk with you in any matter of life , any problem they are facing. Be their friend so they are free to talk to you no matter what age they are. 

Children should be supervised but given freedom while playing studying or doing any task. They should explore things in their own way. In short freedom in moderation is my take on giving freedom to kids.

Freedom to me is  a ‘Free Soul’

Every person should have the right to freedom. Freedom is the essence of happiness. That is why in our country Independence Day and Republic day are celebrated with so much courage.
But in our society how many women or girls are living freely . To walk freely wherever they want, to wear whatever they like freely, to raise their voice whenever they want. The number is very less and the women who do so are judged by so called Indian society.

What freedom means to me…..

I was a very introvert and reserved type of person since childhood, I was judged in school among relatives at college at work and after marriage. My freedom was to let be me the type of person I am don’t force me to be extrovert to speak more.

I speak and I have always raised my voice anything that is wrong that is not honest and then again I was judged why she is speaking , why she is so honest , how can she speak the truth . But I never take people comments personally , yes I have been through low times but I never changed myself from inside my soul that god has given me.

My family my friends have always supported me in my freedom my views the way I am.

A women after marriage face the freedom issue most. Either by husband or in-laws . I was faced the same on the clothes I wear to the way I live , the way I speak. I was criticised much but that doesn’t mean I will stop doing or wearing what I used to . I am a free soul I can do anything I want if I am not doing anything wrong. 

You should have to be true to yourself . Your heart should be free . Freedom to me is whether you are single,married or mother you should never feel that you have taken certain decision or following certain rule or tradition because someone has told you to do it. If your heart feels it is not what you want to follow never do that. Because at the end you will only regret .Decisions whether right or wrong should be your decisions taken from your mind and heart both.

Thus to me freedom is a free soul.

The Body shop wild argon oil lip balm and body shop Lipscuff review …

Dry and chapped lips is a common concern in winters for many people. Every girl loves lip balms. I am crazy for lip balms , always trying new brands new fragrance.

Also a common concern nowadays is lips having dead skin because of applying lipsticks or liquid lipsticks ,long stay lipstick . No doubt these lipsticks look beautiful on us but they make lips super dry so i was looking for a lip scrub.

One day i went to body shop outlet and asked them for lip scrub they said they have only one product in this category and that is lipscuff you can apply to remove the dead skin and also they suggested me the wild argon oil lip balm i bought them both to give it a try.

*THE BODY SHOP WILD ARGON OIL LIP BALM

I am in love with this lip balm since the day i bought ,it almost been 4 months I am using it. It comes in a nice packing different from other body shop lip balms. It makes lips so smooth and has a very light and heavenly fragrance. Argan oil which has so many benefits and getting a lip balm containing argan oil as main ingredient is a deal not to be missed.

*PRO’S

  • Makes lips very smooth and moisturize them well.
  • Its affordable it is for rs. 625 for 20 ml (according to the quality of the product its really worth it)
  • Have a divine and soothing fragrance.
  • Easy to apply.
  • Easy to carry .
  • Don’t have any color , so you can apply before applying lipsticks.
  • It’s non-greasy.

*CON’s

Seriously i din’t find any flaw in this lip balm its little bit expensive but its really worth it.

Give it a try!

*THE BODY SHOP LIPSCUFF

It is like a lip scrub which is used to exfoliate your lips same way you use face scrub or your face to remove the dead skin. It has a refreshing peppermint fragrance .It comes in a lipstick like packing and it is to be applied the same way. You have to apply like a lipstick and leave it for 2 to 3 minutes and then remove it with a tissue.

*PRO’S

  • Very easy to apply.
  • It exfoliate your lips well.
  • Makes lips refreshing.
  • Love the peppermint fragrance.

*CON’S

  • I found it expensive it is for rs.645 for 2.5 g, the quantity is very less.

If you want to spend money for so less quantity and your lips really need exfoliation give it a try !

 

Review of Aurodo pocket zoo 4d

Educational toys are best option for any parent for their kids. I came across this box of animal cards which is a mobile or tablet based game. It gives a nice experience of listening the voices and seeing the animals move on your mobile or tablet screen.

It is a fun way of learning for kids and side by side enjoying the game. The game come in a box that contains:

  • 32 animal cards which include sea creatures, wild animals, pets and insects too.
  • It contains a stand device for your mobile or tablet.
  • A very cute carrying pouch to put your cards in it.

How to use this :

  1.  Search for the app ‘Aurodo Pocket Zoo 4d’ on google play store or apple app store.
  2.  Download the app.
  3.  Then the box contains a scratch card scratch that card it will have a special number which you will be asked to activate the app.
  4.  Now scan card and explore different animals see them moving and listening their voices , their is an option of spell when you scan the card and when you press it will say the name of the animal.

What I like about this :

  1. It can be used for my baby as he is only 14 months now but he was enjoying it, though it is for kids 2 to 10 yrs of age.
  2. It has vast variety of animals .
  3. Its very easy to install and use .
  4. It feels real animal experience, good for kids who like animal related games.
  5. Not so expensive and is available on amazon.com
  6. It has animal quiz option which will help your kid to recognize animals and learn their spelling.​

    ​​

What I don’t like :

It is a screen game so not good for kid’s eyes if they play for long hours.

In brief its a nice product with fun, learning and technology.

New Year Blog!

Happy new year to everyone . The new year 2018 has come . A year full of ups and downs has passed and now I am really excited and hopeful for the coming year.This year really seems small to me . Baby kabir is growing faster day by day. Last year he was only three months old little always folded in my arms and he wants to jump out of arms and explore everything.

 

First of all I want to share the Christmas pics.

I bought this Christmas tree from lajpat nagar market for Rs. 900 after bargaining and all the stuff to decorate also I bought from there. 

For new year we went to Mumbai . We din’t went for vacation to Mumbai specifically , my husband has some official work on 27 Dec in Mumbai so we decided to be there till 31.

I liked Mumbai , I know there is a lot of traffic everywhere but still I like it as a tourist . 

Places I liked the most:

1. Marine drive loved it , you can walk sit or play it’s a nice place , Miss this kind of place in delhi.

2. Powai Hiranandani gardens it’s a very beautiful locality , the streets , the restaurants and it was decorated beautifully for new year.

3. Bandra Worli sea link it’s a must to see .

4. Imagica it’s a beautiful theme park for you for kids people of any age. 


Also loved Mumbai’s pav bhaji and vada pav . 
Tip if you are travelling with baby to Mumbai , avoid crowded places I went to gateway of india it was so overcrowded we decided not go inside the whole Colaba area was crowded it’s not a good option if you are with baby. 

 

Rest I love the city . Mumbai the city of dreams.

We came back on 1st by vistara airlines and our flight was delayed so the whole day we were on Mumbai airport. It was an airport day.

Hope you enjoyed reading.

Thank you!

When baby turned “ONE”

Oh it’s a very late post , due to busy schedule and health issues I was not able to write about my baby turning one.
On 27 Oct 2017 baby kabir turned one.

I dint threw a party for my baby this year , I had plans but due to some health and personal issues I finally decided not threw a birthday party. One advantage I have felt of not celebrating the first birthday is obviously baby will never remember or enjoy his first birthday , so why spent so much money on that event . We could use and spent this money for baby’s birthday in many other ways. Well celebrating and giving a birthday party to your loved ones is never a bad idea it is always a personal choice.

We got the baby cake smash photoshoot done from delhi based photographer shipra and Amit photography. They are based in defence colony i.e south delhi. Loved their work , their team, the creative idea they give, the professionalism.

They will make your baby a star baby .

I will be sharing some of the pics below:As when your baby when turned one your motherhood also completes one year.

The first year of motherhood according to my experience is a roller coaster ride.

With mixed emotions sometimes you are happy , sometimes you feel like crying , sometimes you become irritated but overall it’s a happy ride. The first year of baby is always special it’s how from only crying they start speaking some words, how from only lying on bed or lap they start crawling or walking, how from only having mother’s milk they want to eat everything. Now baby kabir is almost 13 months I am excited and eager what this year will bring to me as a mother .
These babies grow so fast you will never notice. Cherish every moment with them.

As I always had long hair but during my pregnancy days my hair become more healthy more manageable naturally and after giving birth also my hair were healthy not as they were in pregnancy days but from past 4 months I am dealing with hair fall dull hair unmanageable hair.

I tried many shampoos , in general also I keep changing shampoos I don’t stick to one I believe it’s good for hair. But still nothing was working. Few days back at least 3 weeks ago I brought MamaEarth Argon Hair Mask for mama for hair fall.I ordered it from amazon as the reviews were very positive I wanted to give it a try.
I will not say that my hair fall has gone but yes I have seen a huge difference in just 3 weeks.

How to apply:
It should be applied on clean shampooed hair which are towel dried . It can be used as leave in or rinse off conditioner. It should be applied evenly to scalp to hair ends.

Pros:

1.As it states it is paraben free and SLS free so it can be used to 2 to 3 times a week.I applied it for 10 mins after washing my hair twice a week.

2.Texture is very smooth it’s easy to apply from hair scalp to ends.
3.Makes hair smooth soft and manageable.
4.All ingredients are natural no harsh chemicals as it states.
5.Easily available online on various websites like amazon , FirstCry.com, nykaa and on mamaearth website too.

Cons:
1.Price is 599 rs for 200 ml which is ok if it continue to protect my hair from hair fall and make it more healthy

2.Didn’t like the fragrance much but it’s of not much concern if it helps new mamas to have healthy hair.

Will I buy it again?
Yes

 

Thank you

IMG_1691Diwali the Festival of Lights is one of the most important festival of india.
Last Diwali baby kabir was born 3 days before Diwali , so this was his second Diwali but celebrated like first as last year I got discharged from hospital on Diwali day.

Baby kabir loved the lights everywhere , the rangoli , he dint liked crackers much but overall he enjoyed he was happy the whole day and day before the festival too he was very happy like we adults are , he was in all festive mood.

Now here I will share one simple DIY which I did this Diwali :
1. Bought tea light candles from Amazon and they were really cheap, 50 candles for Rs. 107
2. Bought the decorative tape of different colours from market.
3. Cut the tape and paste it on candles with fevicol and simple DIY colourful candles ready.

Crackers I never liked since childhood, so I never burnt and nowadays crackers are so bad with so much pollution which is bad for everyone . So we should avoid crackers . Be safe be happy.
