Rejuvenate your Love with Real Togetherness

Togetherness - a pleasant feeling of being connected to someone. Always wondered that couples during their college days are most connected. They can spend most of their time with each other. But as we grow up, we are tied with different responsibilities. And after marriage the main root for which you are together changes completely. Thanks to social pressure, work pressure and our never ending demands.

Thought of an outing was needed. I always wanted to experience snow hence Manali was our destination. The next part was a good company but unfortunately we could not find anyone suiting our dates. Still we thought of moving ahead and made a plan with the travel agent for both of us.

We started our journey in 2 tier Rajthani and reached Delhi from where we had a bus to Manali. Our journey was for 7 days where we had 3 days in Manali and 2 days in Shimla, including 2 days for to and fro.

Manali was too cold but still lovely as we went in November. 
My eyes were amazed to see blue skies, 
White Mountains, green land
First day we went to some temples and a
castle. It was the same castle where the shooting of “Jab we met” had happened. It was amazing.

Next day was real experience of life in Rohtang. At a height of approx. 13,500 ft. this was the highlight of the trip. The route was enchanting. We also took some jackets and fur coats on hire on the way as we were informed it will be freezing cold at the top. A mountain full of snow is an exhilarating experience. Playing in snow; throwing snow on each other, we had one of our best time. For the first time I did some skiing. The breeze intensified to a strong blizzard and we could feel the chill down the spine and breathing was becoming slightly difficult. But we enjoyed hot Maggi (that time Maggi was acceptable) and tea.

Then was rafting in Kullu. Another thrilling zone.  The ice cold water of the melted snow was electrifying when it gets poured on you. 

The best part was a drive from Manali to Shimla. The temples on the way, the hot water spring at Vashisht kund, the Vaishno Devi Mandir, the hanging bridge, long tunnels, winding roads and overall a fantastic experience.

We also experienced the toy train from Shimla to Kalka.

No phones, no work only we both and nature. Completely broke the digital world. Wished time should just stop here. We enjoyed each other’s company to fullest and actually did not require any third person in the trip.

Manali a real romantic place where we in its beauty we got lost in each other completely and had one of our best time of togetherness.

PAMPER’s 5 Star Skin Diaper solution for all Babies

After the event, now was the time to check the product. Hey this time it was little easy for me to make my niece wear the diaper. And to my surprise I found that the features that were shown in the event and mentioned on the packets are real practical. Check out few of them:

All-around softness

Pampers understand baby’s skin is the softest, so premium care pants have been made using soft materials to provide softness and comfort. Also, the all-around waistbands and leg cuffs ensure a snug fit, minimizing leakage and making movement more comfortable for baby.

Upto 12 hours of dryness 

While I have studied from all Mums around me that generally 5-6 hours of diaper is preferred but with this we checked that for apporx 8 hours the baby is very much comfortable. This is stress free for all mums. Pampers premium care pants come with ultra-dry core that quickly absorbs and locks away liquids.

      Baby Lotion 

As mentioned earlier in this post, the lotion has its advantage to protect the skin of the baby.

Breathable materials 

Generally all elders suggest that we should leave baby free from diapers for few hours in a day that shall enable the skin to breathe. But Pampers has solved this problem, the micro pores in Pampers premium care pants help air circulation, allowing my baby’s skin to breathe. 

     Wetness indicator 

The only way a baby communicates his discomfort is by a cry. You remember how I discovered the time to change the diaper by the smell of the poo. But the unique wetness indicator that turns from yellow to blue when in contact with fluid really works. 

It has been a week now we use Pampers premium care pants for my niece, and I can say that this is the softest and the most comfortable diaper

It’s good that pampers premium care pants come in all sizes so all the Mums can be happy now and baby can have good sleep.

Mums and Baby…Babies and Diaper goes hand in hand

 “I would always prefer Love Marriage and two kids”, my sis said. I told her why don’t you do only one and take mine till he/she grows up to 4. She was shocked listening such thoughts of mine. So I explained her that I love kids but can’t take their poo and pee….God how to clean it’s so horrible and dirty. She could not control her laughter but I was very adamant with my thoughts. I had seen my aunts cleaning my cousins in their cloth diaper.
Few years later my sis finally gave a birth to a sweet little angel. Let me not forget to say that she did Love Marriage J  My niece “Nishka” one of the best gift to entire family.

Being Masi for 1st time was like blessing. Loved playing and spending time with her. One day I was in charge of my niece as sis had to go for some important work. Things were going cool and suddenly I smelled something very wired and found that she has done poo….Oops I was in a fix, but thank god she had worn a diaper. It was Pampers Diaper for small size. 

Things were then less complicated for me as I did not had to do much. I found that my niece was also very comfortable. I changed the diaper for her but was just wondering it would have been good if they had some better way to dispose it. Also some indication for changing the diaper.

To my surprise then there came a parenting event of Pampers through blogadda. I was lucky enough to get a chance for this event. It was a launch of Pampers #SoftestforBabySkin. It was anchored by Actress & Television presenter-MandiraBedi with Actress & Celebrity mother-Tara Sharma. There was Pampers R&D Expert–Dr.Wei Sing Long.

The best part of event was that there were many demonstration where we experienced the key benefits of the product. The main focus was on the tag “Good Sleep”. There were also many video clipping of Tara Sharma and her kid.

We checked that Pamper new product is the softest diaper for baby through a test where there was a box with 3 different diapers. And 92% of us identified the right Softest for Baby diaper.

The pamper R&D expert then shared with us that they use some kind of lotion which makes pamper soft and it does not affect the baby’s skin. This we verified through another test called as Test of Sensitivity. It was quite impressive the way they had shown. Yellow paper in Tara's hand is the paper that imitate’s a baby's skin. Yellow patch is the area treated with the lotion after exposed to a chemical of same pH as that of a baby's pee. 

The best part of event was that my wishes were fulfilled in the new diaper. There is yellow line on diaper which changes its color which is like an indication for changing the diaper. Also they have come out with a unique way of disposing the diaper.

Event was really helpful for people like me who are future mums. It’s quite simple really – all that a baby needs to be happy is food and rest. While managing the food part is relatively easy, very often it is the sleep part that makes a mother lose sleep.

Overall a very nice event of pampers. They also gave us hamper of their new product which I tried on my niece. Check out my upcoming post in which I actually discovered that all the features mentioned about the product are real true :)

Stay Fit Feel Young with Honey

“5 cone of Black Current” I told the ice-cream parlor. Suddenly there was firm voice “no please make that four”. It was Ashley’s voice. He is also one of our society friends. Summers have already taken the life from all of us. So every day a night walk accompanied with an ice cream or goal had become a necessity.

But not forgetting to mention that Ashley though is overweight, still he will never compromise on food and especially on sweets. He loves them and so none of us have ever stopped him. All in one tone surprisingly asked “Why no ice cream for you”. To this Ashley answered that he is on crash diet.

We all were in a shock with his answer. Ashley doing a diet is like a nightmare and that to if he is on crash diet, was not acceptable at all.

“How can you do a crash diet, it is actually nutritionally unbalanced can lead to long-term poor health” said Sharon.

Then the discussion on Crash Diet started. Crash diet is very dangerous. It is definitely a method to lose weight really fast in a short period of time, but the side effects are enormous. You can reduce approx. 700 calories in a day. People who crash diet by missing out food or greatly cutting down on their daily calories tend to put weight back on quicker than those who follow a healthy, long-term diet plan.

Ashley was little scared hearing us. I was also tensed for him. But suddenly there was a new voice “Why don’t you go for Honey Diet”. We just checked that she was a young lady a dietitian.

She introduced herself and said that Dabur Honey has come up with something very interesting. You have a teaspoon of honey with warm water in the morning for weight management. Honey is a substitute for Sugar where the calorie content id less. On other hand contains vitamins, minerals and antioxidants which are good for health. 

Honey is known to be a good source of energy as its natural sugar and carbohydrates are easily digested by the body. Honey when used in your diet is known to aid in digestion. Also Honey is known to help in cough and throat irritation.

For girls especially honey is known to be useful for the skin because of its moisturizing and nourishing properties.

We were very impressed with her thoughts. So we asked her more about diet and ideas for losing weight.

With that she explained that exercise to body is like knowledge to mind. It is necessary for anyone – young or old, working or non-working, fat or fit. One should remove time for exercise.

She also explained us about healthy snacks and desserts. She gave us recipes for Honey Fruit salad, and Honey Berry Milk shake.

The information was helpful for not only Ashley but also to others also. Ashley finally decided to stop his crash diet and start a healthy honey diet along with exercise.

So stay fit with Honey diet J

Manage your time for Drinking Water

Water – a complete versatile liquid which makes you fit, beautifies your skin, cures many disease and the list can go on.
But ever wondered how much water do we have in entire day? I am sure most of our answers would be below the actual requirement. The reason behind is that we all are highly occupied with our day to day work. So we hardly keep a track for how much water we actually drink in a day.

Thanks to reward me site which has given a unique style for keeping track of the water we have.

What you need:
·         2 x 50cl plastic bottles
·         Masking tape (of different colours)
·         Scissors
·         Marker

Use masking tape to create 3 graduations on each bottle. This way you will obtain 5 equal volumes of water.

Drink one volume of water per hour.
Use the marker to write the time at which we should drink water.

With above steps I also added the liter with each time slot. This helps us to check how much liter of water we manage to have in that particular day. You can keep this bottle in your cubicle.

Thus reward me has given a unique idea which shall help us to consume maximum water in a day and be healthy.

Beauty of Cold Water Shower

Cold water bath …..For many it will be a nightmare. In fact I get cold just thinking about it, but recently I read an article from reward me and was surprised to read the title “Benefits of Cold water bath”.
The title was captivating that I was forced to read the full article. And found that it’s not the cold water that is benefiting you, on the contrary, it's the warmth that your body is producing while reacting to the cold water that is balancing your internal temperature.
This “thermic reaction” expels all the impurities we have in our skin, giving us great natural benefits.
But please remember that if you take a cold shower you should do it the right way so you don’t get sick.
You need to start very slowly and gradually. When you get in the shower you should first wet your toes and then the rest of your body until you get to your neck. It’s not necessary to wet your head. Do this for 2 minutes. If you rush into the water and stay for a longer period of time than suggested you could get sick or get a bad headache. Once you’ve finished your shower, make sure to cover yourself up quickly or move your feet and hands so you can generate heat in your body once again.

Check out some benefits of taking cold showers.
1.    Increase metabolism

When our body is exposed to cold water it produces energy in order to continuously re-regulate our internal temperature, burning many calories.
2.    Encourage Healthy hair

The rule goes like this: Hot water opens your hair cuticles while cold water closes them. So, if you wash your hair with hot water, make sure to lower the temperature before you finish showering so that your cuticles have a chance to close. Otherwise this could cause for your hair to fall out or get frizzy.

3.    Prevent Skin Impurities

When you take a cold shower your pores close. This prevents grease and other skin impurities from getting in. Remember also that if you take a very hot shower your skin will dry, making it vulnerable to dermatological problems like eczema.

4.    Soft feet

When you wash the bottom of your feet with cold water while massaging them, they’ll feel softer when you come out. This happens because you are stimulating better blood circulation with cold water.

Thus we see that cold water shower is real advantageous.

Lovely feet at no Spa cost

“Oh you need to do spa every time to beautify your legs”…God its dam expensive in terms of money as well as time.

In today’s busy schedule, we hardly get time for ourselves and then thinking for pedicure every time is just too much. But thanks to reward me site I found that pedicure can be also done in your free space on weekends. Which is not costly at all.
The best part of the pedicure in the article was not having to get out of your pajamas!

Check out the few important steps that shall give you the Spa Pedicure:
1.     Soak your feet

Prepare your feet by giving them a hot bath. Add a perfumed bath salt with one of your favorite scents. You can also add any of your shampoo into the bath tub for good foam. We can also add a few smooth pebbles to the water. These will provide a gentle massage as you place your feet on them. You can then just relax and lean back.

2.    Exfoliate

Once you are done with the foot bath, dry your feet and using a foot scrub remove all the dry and dead skin cells. Be firm but do not scrape too hard.
If you only have a few minutes, exfoliate quickly with a pumice stone or an exfoliating cleanser. Pay close attention to the heel and the base of the big toe.

3.    Right size of nails
maintain the length of your nails with a nail clipper and file them if you’re a fan of rounded tips. Remember: always file in the same direction, as back-and-forth movements can damage nails. Once you have finished filing, remove small spots and other traces present on nails using a nail buffer.

4.    Moisturize
Moisturizing helps soften, hydrate the skin and protects it from cracking. Rub a generous portion on your feet and massage well. Apply a good moisturizer to the base of your foot, especially on the driest parts.

5.    Finishing Touch
The finishing touch is obviously a lovely shiny coat of polish. Choose a shade you like. And plan enough drying time. Since you’re at home, it’s less complicated than getting it done at a spa.

Thus through this article of Reward me, I have lovely feet without any extra pain and extra money J
