Thank God for helping me recover from the sickness. I was sick for last 5 days, never been this bad. I had cold, sore throat before but this was the worst. I am still not sure if it was flu or what as it was not something i had before. And due to the deadline at office, i was working from home, sneezing and working.

In India, it was always nice to have someone beside you when you are sick or for any reason, but since the time i came here, i knew i have to be self-dependent, this country is for the independent people. But still i miss my Mom’s care and love, her making food for me, asking me things all the time, checking on my sickness, not letting me out of the bed. Now that i am not a teenager, nor i am single, i am married with the amazing husband and have an amazing little daughter, baby no. 2 on the way, i should be less expecting and more giving.

As i am pregnant, i couldn’t take any medicine or over-the counter stuff except Regular Tylenol. Google’d for some medicines that i could take and got few on the list, just to be safe i called my family physician’s office. Doctor told me to get plenty of rest, drink a lot of fluids, water with salt gargles and steam. If there is fever or aches, then go for regular Tylenol. And if nothing gets better after 3-4 days, then to check with her back. So i had no option, but to be on bed and rest and rest…

What i did : Took Tylenol twice in 4 days, hot water steam daily, used my daughters salinex nose drops and her Tylenol syrup for cold and sore throat for kids twice, gargled with salt and warm water many times, warm water with honey soothed my throat, lots of water and rest…

Feeling really better today and want to do all the stuff i couldn’t in the last few days… starting from laundry to cleaning and cooking 🙂


I got the Clinique chubby sticks samples few months back and from day one, i am in love with them as i never i have been with any lip product before. I am not a very lipsticky person, even after my marriage, i used it rarely and that too when someone from family pointed out that i dont look like a newly married because of less makeup, as in India makeup and bright dresses are expected to be worn by the newly weds.

And here after 5 years of marriage, i have finally liked some lip product and that suits my taste too. Clinique chubby stick is hydrating as well as imparts a very nice shade to my lips, both natural and shiny. Also, the color of chubby stick i got in the sample was something which made me stick to the products for this long. I was using it before my pregnancy and still continuing with it.

I bought it in Two Ton Tomato and Super Strawberry, and got few as samples which i have been using since last 3 months and will go for more.

Totally recommend it.

After trying for many kinds of panties from various stores and still uncomfortable, i finally got the one that topped in my list of comfort. I usually prefer the one’s with full coverage as i am already feeling large. And moreover, i got it on sale from Motherhood Maternity. In stores, my size was all sold out but i found it online and got two 3-piece orders.

They are comfortable, not too stretchy or tight on my waist, not too loose, just the right-combination of everything.

Also, ordered some blouses and t-shirts on sale as the shipping was not free, so put some more things in my cart.

I remember during my first pregnancy, i was fairly new here and knew of just one maternity store – Thyme but now, i know of many options. Its always good when you have choices.
