Holi skincare tips with Cocodew Cold pressed Coconut Oil

Image
Ask me which festival is my favourite and I will choose Holi over any festival. Colourful faces beaming with joy is everything to me. 
After arrival of Jisha I took break from Holi for 2 years because of my fear of harmful chemicals affecting her delicate skin. 
She loves Holi but I made her play with water and she would ask why can't we play with colours. So after bit of research and tricks last year I discovered one trick that would let us play Holi without fear of damaging our skin or hair.
To play Holi without getting affected by harmful chemicals You need 2 things. 
1. Cold pressed Virgin Coconut Oil. 2. Good Sunscreen Lotion.
Market is flooded with various brands claiming to sell Cold pressed coconut oil but very few actually stand by their claim. Recently I got this Cold pressed coconut oil from brand named Cocodew. 

Decided to use this for Jishu's skin and loved the way it made her skin softer and shinier. I have made it our routine to massage Jishu's skin with coconut oi…

This ACV from Disano Foods is my totally favourite compared to other brands. It is one of most effective and genuine ACV in market.
Apple Cide Vinegar is the new elixir of wellness and good health for me. It's getting really popular now a days due to it's beneficial qualities for our bodies. Be it our skin, hair or body it works really well.  Apple Cider Vinegar from Disano Foods is effective.
you need to be sure that it's real ACV that has Mother Vinegar.  You can check it through the foggy mixture at bottom of bottle. 
I personally use this one for over all benefit so I add 1 cap ACV in 1 glass of water and have it before lunch and dinner.
My Father-in-law uses this for sugar control. so he drinks this in similar quantity as soon as he wakes up. 
If taken regularly it also helps with Weight management. Gonna start this ACV for that purpose as well. You can also use it in salads. It gives tangy and yum flavour. 
ADD one cup of ACV in half bucket of water and rinse your hair with…

How to Freeze strawberries

Image
Hey all,
This post is gonna be really a short one because It's about one more DIY. 
We all love strawberries but fresh and juicy strawberries are available just during winters. 
My daughter Jishu loves having strawberry shake and strawberry ice-lollies. But winter is not time to give these things to her and in summers Strawberries are not available. 
So I decided to freeze strawberries. and after 2-3 failed attempts here I am with perfect idea to freeze strawberries that lasts really good for 8-10 months. 
Things you need - 
Fresh and Juicy strawberries ( quantity depends on how many you want to store. )
Plastic container Zip lock bags. 

First of all wash all strawberries. Dry them with paper towel. cut off all green stems and  leaves off strawberries. Place them in open plastic container. put them in freezer. keep it open. don't cover it. Here's video how Strawberries will be after 24 hours. 


After 24 hours strawberries will be hard like stone. Store them in Zip lock bag…

Hair Fall. Premature graying, Baldness, Hair-growth , Rough and dry hair.   now a days I haven't met a single person who isn't suffering from above mentioned hair related problems. I too, had really stronger , longer and thicker hair. But after pregnancy that lustrous hair got lost somewhere.  But wait blaming just pregnancy, population or contaminated food and lifestyle isn't going to solve problems for us. 
I seriously confess that Oiling is only thing that can save our hair from every kind of damage. Till the time I used to oil my hair regularly , they were growing really well and were really stronger but as my habit Oiling git lesser , the lustrous and strength of hair got lesser.  After trying numerous oils, I decided to switch back to my favourite oil Coconut Oil. 

I came across this brand called Coconutty. which deals in  coconut products like, cold pressed virgin coconut oil, desiccated coconut. I tried their Raw  extra virgin coconut oil for the diy Oil I made in …

Bliss of Earth Dried Green Stevia Leaves

I was introduced to the word "Stevia" in 2018 when I was on Keto diet (That's different topic that needs another post 😜😜). I searched a bit about this product and came to know that unlike saccharine , Stevia is plant based sweetener that's totally natural and got no side effect at all. 
So since 2018, I have made sure that every elder of my family who has Diabetes will use only Stevia products to enjoy sweetness once in a while. And also to the family members who doesn't eat sugar due to weight issues  like me. 😜😜I have tried lots of brands in search of perfect Stevia as many brands' Stevia had weird aftertaste that made it funny. After Searching many brands I came across this brand " Bliss of Earth" which has many products that works best for our skin, hair and body. As soon as they introduced Stevia product in different forms I got them. 
I have tried their Stevia Dried Green leaves, Stevia Powder and Stevia Liquid. Best part about their Stev…

Honestly I never imagined that I will try my hand at nail art and will really succeed at it. It's nit like I ever doubted myself but I was never a great nail polish lover. but once I started Nail art I started hoarding nail polishes and where I started with 5-10, I have 200+ nail polishes in my collection. 
Few brands have purely got my heart when it comes to formula , brush and longer staying power of bail polish. Debelle Cosmetics is certainly one of this brand. Every nail art lover literally swears by this brand for its gel like formula and beautiful colours. I was lucky enough that brand decided to collaborate with me  and sent me their really beautiful shade from their latest launch, " YELLOW TOPAZ" its beautiful Mustard light yellow shade that suits  Indian skin tone so beautifully.
