Our Wonderful trip to Kerala thanks to Makemytrip

After arrival of our darling daughter Jisha in our life, we rarely got chance to travel and explore new places. Jisha is just 1 year old but due to bed rest I had been house-arrest from last 2 years. But as everyone knows every wife has her own personal Jinny, who’s named as husband in dictionary. :P :P :Pin the same way my husband knew my frustration for being at home all the time, he started planning a trip. Our anniversary is on 10th December. Like every wife I keep bugging dear hubby about anniversary plans throughout year but this time he didn’t let me know anything about the plans.  So I was bit frustrated with him.

But just before 15 days, he took me to mall and told me, hey dear, we are going  to Kerala for a week and obviously you will need new clothes for this trip. So have this card and start shopping. Wohooooo, yeah, this was my reaction and crazily I went on shopping spree. As my husband declared that we are going for trip I was bit worried about the trip organizer. but as he said that we were going through  Makemytrip.com I was sooo happy because we planned our honeymoon through same and we had really great experience. 


Then our trip started on 8th of December and after visiting places like Munnar, Aleppy, Thekkady, Kanyakumari , we reached to Kovalam. At Kovalam our stay was in The Leela Kovalam . We had our trip planned by MakeMyTrip.com. And throughout our trip we had got stay in luxurious hotel available in the places. All were excellent but as we reached to The Leela Kovalam, we just simply fell in love with the place.  The most exciting fact about staying in this hotel was that this is Indias only cliff-top hotel. It sounds exciting, na? The view from our room as well as dining area was breath taking.  Not only view but all services like food, room-service, waiters all were up to the mark. We also enjoyed Ayurvedic Massage that drained all our fatigue of travelling.  Bathrooms were also clean and towels were fantastic. Hygienic related issues were taken extra care of. The room was also nice and beach view from the room provided us the experience of Sunrise and Sunset. At night the voice of Sea accompanied us in dreams which was enthralling. 


I have taken these snaps from internet as the pics I took do not do enough justice to the place. 





Here are some pics of us enjoying at Kovalam beach.

Review of Mother Sparsh Baby Soap.


Hello, all lovely mommies out there. Am back again with review of baby product and this time it is baby soap. 

When it comes our baby's skin we become quite worried as now a days market is flooded with variety of baby soaps. So.e of them are Ayurvedic and some fully chemical loaded. I never ever prefer soaps for my own skin so you can surely imagine I would be damn choosy about her skin as well.

So today I will be reviewing Mother Sparsh's baby soap. I received it with other products in a HUGE kit. Yeah! Trust me it's quite huge as it can store all your baby's medicines, toiletry items at one place. 😁😁 I simply fell in love with this kit. 

Now let's go to the review. 




Key ingredients:  Aloe-vera, Wheat germ oil, Almond oil, Olive oil. 

 Product claims: It claims to provide nourishment to baby skin without harming delicate skin securing it from rashes and dirt.

Product description : It's color is white and smell is so mild just as baby's need.
Price : 75 gm for 48 rupees. 



Product Review:  Personally I don't prefer using soaps for my own skin as it dries out skin so it's quite natural that I never preferred to use soap for Jisha. When I got Mother Sparsh baby soap I tried it on Jisha's hands and surprisingly it did not dry out her hands and kept natural moisture intact so I used it on Jisha's whole body including face and it has been really good experience for me. I can surely use this soap on my baby's delicate skin. It's price is also quite affordable and its all ayurvedic ingredients makes it worry-free product. I surely recommend this product to every mommy out there in world. 

Pros of Mother Sparsh Baby Soap:
·        Ayurvedic Ingredients
·        Does not stick to skin
S.  Doesn't dries out baby's delicate skin

Cons of Mother Sparsh Baby Soap:
·        Have not found any. 
                 
My rating for this Baby soap 3.5/5.
