Routine Matters

April 28, 2018

Just like for adults, a routine brings a sense of security to a baby or a child as well. Routines are comforting and establish normalcy. They are the stabilizing force that helps maintain balance. Babies like predictability. They spend nine months in the mother’s womb, protected from the outside world, where there wasn’t much in […]

Twinning is Winning!

April 27, 2018

One of the many reasons I wished for a baby girl (apart from the fact that they are their mom’s best friend) was the adorable and gorgeous girl merchandise such as dresses, hair accessories, ballerinas, hats, which are now available on the stands. The thought of dressing up my baby girl and myself in the […]

Only child?

Even though the world has progressed, some things still remain the same. Like unsolicited advice. Once you graduate, the constant pressure to get married (especially for women) starts piling up.

Keep it real

April 20, 2018

An eyewash. Yes, that’s what I like to call it. Parties, club hopping, designer dresses and Stuart Weitzman. Ok, maybe not Stuart, that’s taking it too far. Guccis and Louboutins.

The Journey

April 16, 2018

Everything was about to change. Overnight. For better or for worse she wondered. For better, she hoped. All her life she had lived a certain way. A way that was about to be altered. She wondered how she would adjust to the new life. She worried if she would be accepted for who she was, how […]

Inner Peace

April 13, 2018

For as long as she could remember, she had been fiercely independent. Wanting to do things on her own, travel on her own, being self-dependent, funding her aspirations herself. She started working right after school. An ambitious, young girl, ready to take on the world. Confident, well-read and well-spoken, she cracked the very first interview […]
