Tried and True series Winter dry lips or lips looking dark - simple solution. 1 teaspoon brown sugar ( white will also do) + 1 teaspoon oilve oil. Mix and apply on lips. Leave for 3 to 5 minutes and then scrub and wash off with water. Keep lips moisturised with a lip balm. Olive oil - conditions the lips and prevents further drying. Sugar's small particles work as a great exfoliant Works well before you apply your lipstick too. PN- The above is a tried and tested home remedy that has worked on me, hence sharing.

As a mother we very often see our little ones throwing tantrums. Many a times kids tend to behave in a way that they seek attention from their parents. One thing that I have learnt ( still learning ☺) is to keep my cool and spend some quality time with my LO at that time. Could be a 15 minute walk or some game or some activity or even reading a book together and then getting back to your to do list. That quality time given to them gives them a feeling of assurance and security and happiness. Try it out! #kids #kid #instakid #child #qualitytime #love #instagood #young #sweet #pretty #instaquote #littleone #fun #family #baby #instababy #parentingtips #happy #smile #parentingjourney #dubaifamilylife

Tuesday Tips I have tried this combination recently. As a mom with a busy schedule n time constraints I like to try different home #tricks for skin and haircare Egg yolk - made up of water and fats makes the skin soft. Oats - is supposed to moisturize skin honey - antioxidant, helps boosts the complexion. Combination of the above can be applied for 5 to 7 minutes. * Please note - am not a skin expert. Just posting what's worked on my skin. I have a combination skin type. #skincaretips #oatsforskin #honeyheals #mommyskin #quickfix #dubaiblogger

                        The New age Man - shares the load



So happy to see the @ariel.india advertisement with the message to #sharetheload in the house. A need of the hour - in today's age. In most houses and in most minds, the domestic chores are seen as a more woman thing to do.We girls are taught to have a career and also manage household tasks but men are not taught to contribute to the household chores.  

Luckily I have a partner who shares the load to a large extent. Right from waking up my little one, bathing him, feeding him on weekends and evenings( when he was small). Well these are parenting roles and not household chores. These help a parent create a bond with the child. In addition to this he does help me with the grocery shopping, sorting, the laundry and dishes too, in case of absence of a help. He always lends a hand so the chores get done faster and we spend some more quality time together.

My son is just 4 years of age and he witnesses his father doing a lot in the house whenever he can. But that is not enough. Kids need to be trained and also explained that no work is big or small or even gender based. When household chores are done by both the parents, the child learns it to be a part of routine and takes stride in doing so. So the house is the best place to build the attitude of gender neutrality. We are starting small with our little one and hoping we are building the right base for him.
Few things which I am training him in the household arena are :
  • As he returns from school, putting his tiffin boxes in the sink, soiled clothes for wash in the laundry bag and not to be left on the floor.
  • Wet towel for drying after his shower before he leaves for school. - Isn't this a winner ;) ? 😍
  • Picking up the toys at the end of the playtime and keeping his room neat ( toughest of the lot but we are there somewhere! 😉
  • Teaching him to make his bed on the weekends - My LO is a bit young for the this but the training is on!
  • Setting the table for dinner with his dad. Clearing the table and cleaning and rinsing his plate.
  • We are slowly getting to his cupboard where he is learning to organize his clothes and keep it neat.
  • Gratitude to the person who has cooked his meals or cleant the house.

I have been criticized by close family members when they see pictures of my little one playing with a kitchen set or actually helping me in the kitchen. That has not affected me. We encourage our little one to pitch in various household chores like the following:
  • Organize and set vegetables and fruits
  • Helping in the laundry
  • To lend a hand in the kitchen whenever he can - beating eggs for breakfast or in baking . This is a regular activity and not seen as a chore. It's infact our fun space together to cook up some yummy dishes.

I had put a post few days back on #instagram on the similar lines and I always tell my family - am not only raising my son, am raising somebody's future partner, father, friend, colleague and hence important that I guide him for the various roles the future holds for him.Let's raise them right.

Think it's time we, mothers, of sons, take charge of raising a man who is independent in all aspects. #sonssharetheload

I have seen many women not giving any time to themselves and it has done more emotional damage than physical! Be it yoga or a 30 minute walk or a spa or a coffee with your girl gang or eating your favorite cuisine Anything that comforts you, rejuvenates you, please do it. This month I have decided to give myself 45 minutes a day for selfcare and do things that bring the #energy on! #womensupportwomen #selflove❤️ #selfcare #dontignoreyourself #loveyourself #mommylife #dubaibloggers

Loving the weather in #dubai. But its usually a common time for coldsThe best remedy for a sore throat/bad throat - black tea with fresh ginger n honey. @rajivsaprumusic you had introduced this to me- thank you. Basically staying away from dairy products when under a cold. That's what works best with me. #dubaibloggers #gingertea #honeyheals #blacktea #teaisgood #dubaifamilylife #homeremedies
