Disclaimer : This is a sponsored post. The views and opinions expressed are entirely mine

I had become very tired of my looks and was looking for some change. Having worked as a hairstylist myself and been in the beauty industry for more than a decade, I am extremely conscious about the health of my hair and avoid getting chemical treatments done on my hair.

Hair are a very important part of beauty and a good hairstyle goes a long way in making your style statement. Also, at the same time, we easily become tired of carrying the same hairstyle for a long time. Especially during the wedding season, when one has to attend a number of functions, we need a new hair style for every function. While surfing the net and looking for some new hairstyling options, I came across Divatress.com. Divatress, is a company that sells thousands of wigs and hair care products.

The idea of hair braiding and trying different braids and curls really struck with me. I always find curls and braids more fascinating since I have straight hair. They make the hair look thicker, voluminous and more glamorous. But braiding or curling your own hair is really time consuming. Divatress offer crochet braids hair which can be easily installed in your own hair. They merge in the hair beautifully and look absolutely natural.

Fun Filled Family Getaway: KidZania Delhi NCR

As soon as exams got over, my kids started insisting us to take them to their favourite place which is KidZania Delhi NCR. We happily obliged as it was a much deserved break and also it’s a place where they can have unlimited fun along with some learning too. KidZania is an entire city full of fun for kids.


It’s a place which offers various role play activities for kids ranging from doctors, engineers, lawyers, judges, dancers, radio jockeys and many more. There is a hospital, a dental clinic, petrol pump, driving school, airport, Pepper fry furniture store, services like DHL, Bajaj energy conservation hub to name a few. All these are child driven activities which provide children real hands on experience of the working of these places.


The best part of KidZania is their security system. They provide a device to every member of the family which helps parents to keep a track of the kids and locate where they are. So, while the kids are engaged in all the activities, parents can easily sit back and enjoy themselves at the parents lounge. There are a number of food joints which offer a variety of food and coffee shops. To keep the memories of KidZania, there is a photo shop and a souvenir shop as well.


KidZania has also come up with some activities for adults too. So, parents who want to participate can opt for activities like Amity University, Archaeological site, Bollywood, courthouse, Disco lounge, Furtado’s school of music and Shiamak Dance academy and many more.


KidZania is the best place to celebrate your kid’s birthday and let their friends have an experience they will cherish forever.

Kids also get to open an account in Yes Bank and manage their own Kidzos, debit card and Pazzport.

For performing the role activities the kids have to either earn or spend their kidzos which enables them to learn the concept of earning, spending and saving money. At the end of their visit, they can also shop for themselves at the departmental store.

The activities which became a hit for my kids were rock climbing for my elder one and nursing the baby for my younger one. Apart from that my kids also enjoyed performing surgeries at the hospital and the dental treatment at the clinic.
For us, the most joyful sight was watching the kids running around as cops catching a thief and extinguishing fire as fire men. The experience of sitting at a fire engine was simply unforgettable.

So, what are you waiting for, take your kids to the most exciting place in the city and just sit back and enjoy.

Here’s How I am Keeping The Promise Of Good Health For My Family

Milk has a very special place in our homes. Be it our morning tea, evening coffee or tall glasses for our kids. We cannot think of a day without milk. Milk is an essential part of our daily groceries.

This summer, I faced regular problems with the milk packs I had been buying regularly for years. The milk would turn sour as soon as I would heat it. The shop owners blamed it on power cuts and the lack of proper storage facility that they have. Due to power cuts, shop owners would keep lesser quantities of milk and as a result, the shop owners would run out of milk.

Then, I shifted to milk packaged in Tetra Pak cartons from the pouch variant of the same brand that I have now been using for ages. I must say, I ‘m much happier with this decision. Now, even if there are power cuts in summers with the shop owners providing the excuse of poor supply of milk, I am assured that I can keep and store milk which will stay fresh and safe, even for a long time.

Milk is packed in six layer protective Tetra Pak cartons. The milk is heated on very high temperature for a brief period which also ensures that the taste and the nutrients of the milk remain intact. The milk goes through a quick heating and cooling session, called the Ultra High Temperature process. The UHT process helps in keeping the milk safe for about six months without opening.

aseptic-milk-packaging-layers

There are several myths around milk in Tetra Pak cartons which prevail commonly. I read about them and found answers to all of them. Milk in Tetra Pak cartons is generally perceived to contain preservatives. The truth is that this milk is heated at high temperature which helps in removing all the harmful microorganisms from the milk. The packaging is done in highly sterile conditions. Therefore, there is no need to add preservatives in milk packaged by Tetra Pak.

The second, most common myth is that this milk is not nutritious. It is a regular practice in households to boil the milk. Despite the milk being pasteurized before packaging, boiling the milk for longer duration is a regular practice. This results in a loss of nutrients, especially proteins and vitamin B group. Tetra Pak packaging helps keep the milk safe and retain its nutrients.

There are several other benefits of this food safety mark:
1.     Milk in Tetra Pak cartons has a longer shelf life. The unopened milk carton can be stored for as long as six months without refrigeration.
2.     The milk is well packed in six layers of packaging that is tamper-evident and hence eliminates chanced of adulteration.
3.     It keeps the milk safe and preserves its nutrients.
4.     There is no need to boil the milk as it has already gone through the UHT process.
5.     Tetra Pak cartons are made primarily of paperboard and can be recycled and turned into more useful products, making them environment-friendly.
6.     Milk in Tetra Pak cartons is safe to consume directly. This milk is creamier and thicker when compared to milk sourced in any other packaging.

In today’s fast paced life, I find milk packaged in Tetra Pak cartons to be a healthier and safer choice. I can be sure of providing pure and unadulterated milk to my family every day, keeping the promise of good health for my family.
