It was hard to resist travelling over the last 8 months. Finally, we thought of taking the plunge, packed our bags, picked the car keys and headed to Agra for a royal stay at ITC Mughal.
This time our trip was extra special as it was our first trip post lockdown after a gap of 8-9 months. The old and heritage city Agra known as the ‘city of Love’ not only has the marvelous Taj Mahal but also has the splendid ITC Mughal. ITC’s luxury collection hotel is situated in close proximity to Taj Mahal and is a tribute to the Mughal builders of the past as this hotel is historic and is inspired by the heritage Mughal monuments like Fatehpur Sikri and Agra Fort.
If you are seeking solace, privacy and a time of your lifetime then you should head to The Sanctoo Suites and Villas in Ubud, Bali. True to its name, Sanctoo which means private or a sacred place is the ultimate getaway in Bali.
During the pandemic, the internet has been our go-to place whether it is for a meeting or to shop. With the upcoming festive season I want to dress my best and what better than to buy lehenga online for my elegant and glam look. Lehengas have always been a charm and this piece of clothing has witnessed a drastic change over the years. My fancy at the moment is crop top lehenga.
When I think about Kerala, the first thing that strikes me is happiness, peace, people, warmth and a place full of life. Where people love to live life to the fullest and enjoy it too. No mad rush, no competition, just lots of colours aptly known as “God’s own country”.
Bali is a beautiful place. While we cherished the beauty of the Indonesian island known for its forested volcanic mountains, iconic rice paddies, beaches and coral reefs, we could not resist shopping. Bali offers a unique experience for shopaholics too as there are variety of places to shop – from local to brands to designer stores to boutiques. One would find goods like handbags, jewellery, footwear, clothes, lingerie and much more. Foodies, fret not, there is a food market as well. Then you have beautiful crafts like paintings, sculptures, furniture, home décor etc. The paradise offers everything here that is why Bali is the heart of Indonesia like Delhi is the heart of India.
We shopped a lot in Bali and we are putting down a list for you all so that you can make the most when you go to Bali:
While in Bali, I wanted different experiences across different destinations. When we were finalizing our abode at Kuta, we chose Discovery Kartika Plaza Hotel. A dreamful destination, yes, it’s so big, beautiful and splendid that I would choose to call it a destination rather than a hotel.
Our relationships are special! Built on the foundation of love & respect they bring immense joy but a huge chunk of responsibilities too! In modern day, the woman of the house supports her family in every way possible, whether it’s going out to earn or cooking or doing the laundry. It’s time now that the men of the house wear the Superhero hat and #ShareTheLoad with their wife and mother.
Ariel recently unveiled a unique initiative which is called Sons #ShareTheLoad which emphasizes on the need for sons to Share the load when it comes to household chores. Gone are the days when the women takes full responsibility for the domestic chores. The #ShareTheLoad movement was started in India to address the household inequality that exists in our society.

Being a mom is a divine experience. Even more than, I ever imagined. Carrying a life in your womb for 40 weeks is a joyful journey, for both mother and father. Right from starting of the pregnancy, parents ensure not to leave a stone unturned by taking measures and giving utmost care to the baby so that the world could see a healthy and happy child joining the family.
Not even in thoughts one would ever want to have a pre-term baby. A preterm or premature baby is the baby that is delivered between before 37th weeks of the pregnancy. Premature babies, especially those born very early (Even before 30th week), often have complicated medical issues. The earlier your baby is born, the higher the risk of complications.
If the baby is premature, she would likely need a longer hospital stay in a special nursery unit at the hospital under the complete supervision of specialized doctors and experienced team. Depending on how much care the little star requires, he or she may be admitted to an intermediate care nursery or the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) of the hospital.
Alisha was on cloud 9, when the doctor told her that she is pregnant. All in the family were eagerly waiting for the baby.
When the doctor handed over the baby Ishaan to Alisha, she was also told about the importance of golden hour of breastfeeding and how this will be crucial for the baby and will boost his immunity.
However, Alisha didn’t take the advice seriously and got busy with the celebrations with family and her friends of kitty party.
Alisha joined her startup business within a month of her delivery and the baby was left with a full-time maid, who used to give her bottle feed.
During the first 6 months, little Ishaan fell severely ill many time due to one or another reasons. When worried Alisha contacted the doctor, the pediatrician told her that the chances of kids on bottle feed falling ill are 10 times more than, who take their mother feed.
Look carefully- there could many more Alishas around you!
