The ideal way of giving! #ShramDaanDay

Bill Gates, Azim Premji, Mark Zuckerberg - what do they all have in common? Other than being industry leaders and very successful entrepreneurs, they all have committed to provide funds for causes that will make our world a better place. But then these are uber rich men and the practice of the rich and powerful providing support or ‘DAAN’ to the poor/needy has been a common practice in India since ages. However the feeling of doing something for the community is not just felt by the rich and powerful, it is also shared by millions of others who have all the good intentions but don't have the means to do so. When we speak about the millions, we have the lower strata from whom we don't expect much but the contributions that they have been making have taken me by total surprise. It's not been about money but they have done their bit by providing services and thus comes around the concept of Shram(services) Daan. It's surprising though that despite having the intent, I haven't seen or heard much of the in between strata that is the not so rich but earning well strata which I belong to, doing a collective effort like what I am going to tell you about :)

Winter Magic with Medimix Ayurvedic!

Aaahhh the winters are here! :) The chill in the air, the endless cups of tea and coffee, winter special food and the coziness of the blankets, all these make winters so so special. On the flip side it also brings dry skin and the need for extra care which my skin needs as it becomes very very dry. My husband is a big advocate of using glycerine for retaining moisture in the skin, as his grandmother and mother use generous amounts of glycerine with lime juice to avoid dry skin during the harsh and dry winters of North India. So this season after a little research, I bought the new Lakshadi oil based glycerine soap from Medimix. Medimix has been around for many years and is one of the leading Ayurvedic soap brands in India. Finally time for me to 'Go Natural with Medimix'!

Parents #DoYourHomework!

Yesterday my best friend called me to check if I would be interested in enrolling for the mother toddler class, and the question totally took me by surprise because I hadn't ever thought about it seriously. It got me thinking as to how prepared we have to be from such an early stage of our child’s life. I took this up with PS and the discussion went from the mother toddler class to pre-school planning to school then college, and then we were stumped as it’s really not possible to plan so much as we can’t predict as to what profession our daughter will pursue when she grows up.

The Love Story of Rubies and Diamonds!

Gold jewellery and Indian women are inseparable. Tradition calls for jewellery to be a part of every important phase of an Indian woman's life, right from birth to marriage to childbirth, to festivals to any celebration. Take that further to aesthetics, and jewellery according to me enhances a woman's look to a totally different level. This especially holds true for statement pieces, diamond jewellery and jewellery set with semi-precious stones.

It’s All About The Gucci: Spotting A Fake!

With the number of luxury brands increasing, the presence of fakes has increased. A case in point would be the watch industry which has been one of the main targets of the counterfeits industry and this has caused a lot of problems within the watch industry over the years. Gucci watches are one of the most replicated ones at the moment and you can see loads of replicas in the market these days. So, it is important to be wary while buying a Gucci watch because chances are you might even end up buying a fake one without ever realizing it.

This brings us to the question: how do you spot a fake Gucci watch? Are there any rules or tips one needs to follow so as to remain on the safer side?

Liquid Hair Alchemy - Repair, Protect, Nourish!

Having fine hair makes my hair prone to damage much more easily than other hair types, as it is fragile. The shiny and strong hair of mine that you see is thanks to the care that I take on a regular basis with products that I use at home, or salon treatments. My latest hair care discovery is an amazing product called the System Professional Liquid Hair which is a Molecular Hair Refiller that reconstructs the hair fiber at a molecular level, reinforcing the  hair for up to 5 washes. It contains the renowned RPN (Repair, Protect, Nourish) formula and is infused with New Molecular Hair Restructurer technology with keratin building and essential amino acids blocks to instantly refill the hair cuticle and strengthen lastingly damaged hair.

With the wedding season here and the number of hairstyles being done on my hair, I needed to take a lot more care of my hair at the moment which is why the SP Liquid Hair treatment felt perfect. I headed to Placid Salon at Khar to try the treatment and make myself stress free for at least 2 weeks. See the difference for yourself to know why I call it amazing!

Balancing life with Lever Ayush!

Life in today's world is all about working smart and getting most out of your day. But there are days when things don’t stay in your control like getting stuck for hours in a traffic jam or the baby refusing to sleep till late into the night or back to back socializing and in the current season, loads of weddings to attend to. If you have too many of these days in quick succession then life becomes imbalanced and effects of this imbalance becomes visible in more than one way. You may have an acne breakout, a backache, headache/migraines and even hair loss.

These products are specifically designed to solve problems brought about by the pressures of a modern day lifestyle. The Ayush range consists of products for skin, hair, pain management and oils.
