Baby Sleeping

Baby Sleeps atleast 8-9 hrs aday. But this is the most toughest part to make them sleep. Sometimes they r too naughty that they don't wanna sleep & sometimes they r crying n crying n crying. They can't tell u what they want but u can realise it from their actions like for sleeping they showoff such signs

#Rubbing of eyes


#Looking away

#Crying without any reason

  1. Turn off the lights in his room. Be very quite so that nothing can disturb his sleep.

  2. Breast feed the baby to his sleep.

  3. Feed ur baby as much as he want. When he wake up at night don't feed him & try to make him sleep by sitting on a rocking chair.

  4. Try to sing some rhymes or sweet songs for him.

  5. Always make the baby to sleep on her back.

  6. Make him sleep in ur arms & afterwards put him in the cot. It will make him learn to sleep without u in separate room also.

Focus On The Positive Attributes
Before marriage everyone try to be big lovers like the Sohni-Mahiwal, Shiri-Farah & of couse like Romeo-Juliet. But after marriage that passion comes to an end slowly & steadily. As after marriage the responsibility increases & the time u spend with eachother before marriage decreases. Once the initial rush of hormones wears off, its easy to start seeing the other person & rather unflattering eyes that don't really make for good news. Try to look at the good part also, before marriage what u liked in ur betterhalf, do u remember that? Now try to see him in new prespective & fall in love with him again. Admire him everyday & stay in love. If u liked the muscled hunk man, or u like his green eyes try to find new things like how he cares for u when u fall ill, he's doing this hard work only for u, see how he provides for ur every need. Look at the positive attributes & u will start loving him again.

Just think once what u r doing here if he don't loves u, u might be somewhere else. And we all are here for love. Try to give more, nothing will be going with u only that goes is the love u spread.


Sometimes we forgot the phrase that we had learnt in our childhood which is
"First Weigh Than Say".
Spoken words can't be retrieved. One need to be careful in saying anything to anyone whether its ur family member, friend, worker, maid or anyone else. Try not to hurt any ones feeling with ur words becoz once we speak without thinking that show how much bitterness is in ur heart. In that case even "Sorry " can't do anything. Words can hurt feelings as well as destroy relationships. Always try to talk less, say more. And what u say have some weight. Words have that much power that can make rich poor n poor rich. The one who knows how to talk is the one who can win the heart of everybody. Talk that much only which is required. Try to be a good listener.
Don't try to interfere in between others talk. This one makes the other end feel neglected, rejected, let down, disheartened & embarrassed. Listen to feelings not words.

All About Base

First of all use a gel base so that everything go on smoother & stay longer. It is to be applied with sponge & u don't have to use ur fingers.

Which one is ur Shade?

Generally people try foundation shade on the back of their hands but the shade of ur hand is different from that of ur face. So apply the foundation shade on ur face near ur jaw line. Right shade is the one that disappears into ur skin. Most of Indian skins have yellowish tone so choose the yellow toned foundation.

Applying foundation is also an art. Mix foundation with honey milk. Use sponge to apply the foundation. It should be applied from ur jaw line, always put some on ur ear also. Apply it in a downward way. Use fingers to apply foundation on the areas which are neglected.

Handle Dark Circle

U can hide ur dark circle with the help of foundation & concealer. Use a pinkish shade of concealer. Use ur ring to dot ur eyes then gently apply a fine layer of foundation on it.

Radiance Glow

Mix ur foundation with other illuminating lotion to create more radiance. Use ur finger to apply foundation, finish by using a brush to dust some radiance powder lightly over the check bones, brow bones, bridge of nose.

Flaw Fixing

To fix ur flaw use yellow toned concealer apply dot on the spot, blend it with ur small finger & set with dusting powder.

Fix Wrinkles

U can fix wrinkles with anti ageing foundation this will soften the appearance of lines. Put some moisturiser straight on to ur deepest wrinkles. This will help u look younger.

Breast Feeding
Being a mother is wonderful experience which can't be expressed in words. The moment a child is born, a mother also born becoz before that she never existed. So there is a very special kind of relation between a mother and her baby that's why ur every moment with ur baby is special one. Ur first bonding starts with ur feeding. Some mothers avoid to feed their babies as for them their figure is more important then their baby. But Breast Feeding has its own significance. U can start breast feeding ur baby an hour after delivery. Colostrum, the yellowish milk produced by mother in first 3 days is very healthy for the child. The baby doesn't need anything not even water for first 4-6 months. Breast milk provide adequate nutrition n immunity for the baby.
Baby should have both types of milk fore milk as well as hind milk. Fore milk is rich in carbohydrates, vitamins & protein that helps to quench the thirst. Hind milk is rich in fat & calories. U should allow baby to keep suckling from one side until he leaves the breast on his own.

Bonded Forever

Everyone falls in love now or then but falling in love is the easiest part of deal n staying in love happily ever after is the toughest part. So here i am mentioning 3 ways to remain happily with your loved ones.

  1. Trust : The very first thing is trust if u trust each other n giving each other their space that will work wonder. Never ever try to find out what they r doing when u r not around. Also try to be a trust worthy person.
  2. Respect : Love blosoms when we show respect. Always respect each other in public as well as in private. Respecting each others individual identity will create a positive atmosphere around u.
  3. Support : Always support each other in good n bad times this will help u both to give ur 100% at work. And it also signifies that his or her dreams r also important to u like ur own.


What is a life? Life is a puzzle no one can easily understand it. Life is not always bed of roses for all but actually life is full of compromises n choices. Sometimes we have to compromise for mom n dad, for brothers n sisters n sometimes for our children. we have to make choices in good n bad. Like if we ill-treat a person, we choose to be ill treated in return. In our life we will get what we gave to others. Life is full of beauty so live your life to its fullest potential. As James Dean quotes
"Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today"
