Getting ready for #MyFriendAlexa!

So, it’s the first time for me! I am all nervous and confused and searching all those articles on Alexa rank and browsing through twitter with the hashtag, #MyFriendAlexa and literally spamming blogchatter team there with my queries! Thanks God their patient and didn’t block me for this!

But I guess, I have got the main idea digested! It’s a blogging festival! A big one! That’ll eventually help me get a higher performance for my blog and not to forget getting the better ranking at its highness, Alexa. The lower I rank at Alexa, the higher I rank in the blogging world. Plus the interactions and genuine feedback’s I would be getting on my blog would be another positive factor to look forward to.

What’s more? For the love of reading, I get to read some varied works of numerous bloggers all so experienced and amazing writers because of this fest. A minimum of eight or many in one or many niches are welcome here too.

I guess, I should dedicate my September to a month full of variety of niches covered in this blogging fest. I would start a chain of blogs with genres and cover almost all aspects of lifestyle and other niches while we complete the fest. For example, my first blog would be on pregnancy stages while second can be on fashion styles. I can dedicate my third one for food and the fourth one for technology. Similarly, writing on travel for the fifth and finance for the sixth would be a great choice too. I am planning to let my seventh post be dedicated to food and eighth one for travel! Who knows I may even cross the eight figure and write more! May be the ninth one would be on parenting and tenth one can be on home decor ideas and I can even write an eleventh on fiction and more on parenting and more.

Let see if these ideas work and I can survive through this challenge after the A2Z challenge! Wish me luck and stay tuned for a month full of varied and exciting posts!

Kolhapuri VS Mules- The Battle of Shoes

There is a quote which determines our love for shoes like no other, “Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world” by Marilyn Monroe. Shoes or ladies footwear whatever you call it, this has the same significance as the quote suggests. It is the fact that if you don’t pair the right shoes to your ensemble can look completely out of the place.  Nowadays there are so many types of shoes out there like wedges, Heels, flats, pumps and so on. The list is never ending and I would like to stress over two most trending shoes of this time.

Mules and Kolhapuri Chappals, these shoes according to me have been the most trending these days. Have you ever thought about handcrafted mules? I know you are surprised by yes, you heard me right! Modern contemporary shoes decorated with some traditional prints isn’t that amazing! Now the choice is yours, whether mules will win or our own traditional Kolhapuri will.

Let the battle of shoes begins!

1. Designer Ajrakh mules:

Absorbed in the bold elegance of Ajrakh, these block heels mules are the perfect round the clock sliders for women. This pair of shoe is my personal perfect as it is suitable for both casual and formal outings. The art of Ajrakh print enables the traditional vibe into the shoe but the classic finish and design of the shoe make it perfect for formal usage.

2. Pamir Rabari Kolhapuri Chappal:

Pamir Rabari Kolhapuri chappal with Mirror Embroidery, tribal pattern embellished and bronze zari. Rabari the art on the chappal is inspired from the tribe in Gujarat. This chappal is suitable for traditional as well as casual outings. You can combine these with a lovely set of kurti and palazzo or jeans and top.

3. Beige Kalamkari Mules:  

This heel is the true example of traditional art and modern contemporary design.  As per our normal routine, these are the most unique set of mules you can have.  Either you are going to work or for any casual outing, these are the perfect options for you.

4. Dabu Print Kolhapuri Chappals:

The Kolhapuri chappal is a mirror image of contemporary beauty. Made with artistic grandeur and authentic leather. Decorated with wooden buttons and bright yellow tassels this chappal is nothing less than a piece of art. Pair these up with your favourite outfit and make an everlasting impression.

Now you can judge what you feel is best for you! None the less, these both are my favorites and I can’t make a choice between these beautiful pairs of Mules and Kolhapuri. Make these yours and let others go gaga over these stunning shoes.

Product review- Eyova egg oil!

Hair fall problem has been seen consistently in all! Earlier, it was restricted to only females above a certain age to get hair fall issues, but recently, due to excessive pollution and the stress level being on continuos rise, even kids and men are facing hair fall issues too. The other issues like premature greying of hair, dandruff, split ends and restricted hair growth are some other issues prevailing amongst individuals.

Although there see various ways to avoid hair fall issues, I have come across an amazing unique product recently, that helped me cope with the issues of dandruff, split ends and hairfall.

Eyova hair nutrient is world’s number one egg oil hair nutrient that contains the oil extraction of twenty eggs in a single 50ml. Eyova bottle. Keeping in mind the needs of it’s users it has made a product that is beneficial for all hair issues.

Consisting of nutrients like biotin, that helps promote hair growth, omega 3 and 5 that regenerates hair follicles, good cholesterol which repairs, strengthens and moisturizes hair, antioxidants that prevent aging and strengthens hair roots and immunoglobulin which helps to revitalize hair and maintain healthy hair and scalp.

I started messaging it slowly on the scalp to spread evenly and left it overnight and later washed it off with mild shampoo twice a week for a month. The results are impressive as I can rarely see any dandruff on my scalp now. Even the hairfall issue has been resolved with split ends getting scarce too.

You can try the product to believe of it’s amazing benefits for yourself and mark the amazing change in your hair growth. Buy it from amazon or flipkart or snapdeal. Do follow them on instagram to get more information.

Hair fall problem in kids and it’s causes and remedies!

Pre teens is the most important span of time in the lives of our kids! We all want them to grow up just perfectly, without any health or emotional problems. We, as mothers tend to even recite some great speeches and debates to discuss in front of our children in order to give them some enlightenment on this subject. Especially, when it’s our daughters. Gone are the days when growing daughters were assumed as headaches for their parents. Sadly so,even they grew up well and led a life of pride in their own sweet way. But today, growing daughters are epitome of beauty and happiness for all parents.

While our babies are growing in to beautiful girls, there are often some things that shouldn’t occur during their tender age. But these factors are making their mark because of various factors today like pollution, excessive intake of junk food, growing use of digital media, etc. These factors often affect the normal development of body and causing certain physical and psychological abnormalities that should otherwise have prevailed after the kid becomes full adult.

One of these serious conditions is, hairfall. Hair Fall, especially in girls during pre teens is an issue that’s needs serious attention. Because it may affect their hair growth during adult life a lot. And who knows, the hair quality and growth may never be the same ever after decades of caring and getting medical attention for the same.

As I said above, there are certain common factors of hair fall during this tender age, let’s get them checked in a more detailed manner:

Unhealthy consumption of food:

Due to increasing intake of junk food and aerated drinks be consumed largely, week roots of hair are a common problem. When the body doesn’t get enough nutritions, it tend to loose the grip in the roots too.

Less drinking of water

As we all know, hair fall and growth is mostly concerned with good intake of water. But kids nowadays, in their own sweet world, tend to feel lazy even to consume basic need of water.

Dirt getting accumulated in hair

Most of the kids are mostly outdoors, or even if in, we all reside in metropolitan cities,thus pollution and dust has a free entry at out place. Also the sweat gathering within hair leads to accumulation of dirt in hair.

Excessive use of chemicals and hair machines at a young age

Kids mimic and how! We know how our kids tend to copy whatever we do and this also is a great factor for weakening of their hair strength. Be it because of the trends going out largely or copying their moms and aunts, children colouring their hair with harmful chemicals and using hair straighteners and rollers at young age are doing a great damage to their hair growth.

Precautions and remedies

Proper cleansing process

Make sure your kids wash their hair thoroughly using fingertips pressure to scrub their scalp well with a mild shampoo regularly. At Least twice a week is suggested.

Oiling regularly

Just as our body needs food, our hair roots need their food, that is oil. If the hair fall has started or is increasing rapidly, don’t water time, use this remedial oil twice a week for child’s scalp.

  • 100 ml. Caster oil
  • 100 ml. Sweet almond oil
  • 50 ml. Virgin olive oil
  • 100 ml. Pure coconut oil.
  • 100 ml. Sweet almond oil
  • 50 ml. Virgin olive oil
  • 100 ml. Pure coconut oil.

Mix it all in a bottle and use only this oil regularly for your kids.

Hydration

Increase their dosage of water. Explain them the need of it for a healthy body and hair. If hair fall has started, make sure you are giving her a whole fresh coconut oil once a week at the least.

Include the greens, proteins and vitamins

Increase the use of vegetables and fish in their diet. You can try making all sorts of junk food out of these healthy Ingredients too. Also, if hair fall prevails, start immediate intake of calcium and multivitamin tonics.

Ease them off

Make sure you are talking to your kids regularly. Because growing kids can be stressed due to some issues and may not reveal it all to you. This tension and stress may also lead to hair fall in this age.

Natural shampoo and conditioner

If your kid is facing extreme hair fall, avoid the market shampoo and conditioner for some time and start using reetha and yogurts in its place. The procedure to use the same is as follows:

  • Take 50/100 grams of reetha (according to your child’s hair volume)
  • Soak it for 1 hour, then boil it in the same water for about 10 mins. Let it cool.
  • Crush out the reetha from their seeds and remove out the leftover from the water.
  • Soak it for 1 hour, then boil it in the same water for about 10 mins. Let it cool.
  • Crush out the reetha from their seeds and remove out the leftover from the water.

Your natural shampoo made at home is ready.

For natural conditioner at home:

  • Mix 1 cup of yogurt with half teaspoon synthetic vinegar and 1 teaspoon honey.
  • Apply after washing your hair thoroughly.
  • Let it stay for ten minutes and wash.

Proper uses of bands when tying hair.

Always use soft bands and soft brushes when you tie up your kid’s hair, and better keep it tied most of the time to strengthen their roots.

These tips will surely help you with dealing with the hair fall issues attacking kids just before they enter or immediately after they enter their teens. Let me know if these were useful to you in the comments below.
