I just spotted a lovely website and thought of sharing about it with a post.
We all love diaries, don't we? Lately, I have gone really crazy about collecting different types of diaries. I have a small but nice collection of diaries (I find it cool to have them). I was planning to add some more to it. Searching on the internet, stores and everywhere possible. Luckily, my thirst for some amazing diaries quenched at this amazing website : DOODLE!

Ambi Pur - #SmellyToSmiley


I am blogging for #SmellyToSmiley activity at BlogAdda.com in association with Ambi Pur.

Bad odours can really change your mood from good to bad. The odours in your home can make you feel puke-ish, dizzy and even irritated. Be it the smelly socks, bathrooms, wet woods, fungus, non-veg cooking smell, smoke and what not. Sometimes, when these odors get unbearable, I just wish I had a choked nose. Lol. But what if you have guests coming over and that unpleasant odour just wont leave? It gets really embarrassing. Don't you wish these odours could just vanish forever? 

Now the point is, how do you get rid of such odours? I'll share with you some easy tip on how to get rid of these odours and save yourself the embarrassment.

The best way however, is'AMBI PUR'. It not just covers the odours but removes it completely! :) 

Here are some useful tips for you :

  1.  Firstly, if you have some smell coming in your house, try to identify the source and remove it completely, if possible.
  2. If your house is smelly, the secret key is  'Vodka'. Add 3 parts of water and one part of vodka and spray it in your house. It will take away the bad odour.
  3. To remove smoke smells, i use vinegar and it is very helpful. Take a cloth and put white vinegar  on it and then take it around your house while swinging the cloth in the air.
  4. Your pet's smell can be really annoying as it gets into the whole house. Activated charcoal is great for absorbing a range of odors, especially those caused by pets.
  5.  The bathroom of your house can have the most unpleasant smell. Use an odour remover  or baking soda. Keep a cup of baking soda in the bathroom and wait for sometime for the odour to vanish.
  6. Cooking non-veg or spicy food can also lead to a smelly kitchen. Boil a cup of vinegar on the stove. The vapors that release into the air will vanish the other smells.
  7. Your carpets can be smelly too at times. Use vinegar as it helps to kill the bacteria on the carpet that causes odour. Use 1 quarter of vinegar and 3 quarters of water and dip a cloth in it. Rub this cloth on the carpet to remove the odour.
  8. Garbage bin can also be a reason for the smell in your house. Drop pieces of lemon into the garbage bin. It can absorb most smells as it has citrus. If it still smells, use cold water with half cup of vinegar.
  9. Sweat smell can also put you in an embarrassing situation. Dirty clothes can stink While washing them add half a cup of washing soda. It will take out the smell.
  10. Keep cleaning your refrigerator every month and if it still smells, keep a container of baking soda that can absorb the bad odour and keep your food fresh and ordour-less.
  11. Also, don't forget to wipe the doors, windows, bulbs etc. on a regular basis as odours sometimes settle on them and then your house keeps smelling. 
 These are tips to prevent bad odour. For a pleasant smell in your house, use Ambi Pur room freshener. :)
Hope my tips will help your house go from #SmellyToSmiley :)

#HugYourDad on Father's Day!

Hey friends!

This father’s day, I am expressing my love towards my dad by participating in the #HugYourDad activity at BlogAdda in association with Vicks.

Father's Day is round the corner. We all love our dads and there's no doubt about it. They are our source of strength, courage and our support.
(Image source : pinterest.com)

DAD - It's not just a 3 letter word, it means the WORLD to me. I want to express my love to my dad this Father's day by a hug. A hug can say a lot of things. Whether you're sad, happy, or want to express your love to someone, there can't be a better way to express it than hugging the person. I want to give this magical hug to my dad for he has been with me through all thick and thin in life. I want to say a big thank you to him. The reason I live my life without any big tensions, is this person - MY DAD! Since the time I can recall, whenever I had any problem, I knew where to go and then a while later, I was a happy child again! It seems he has a magic wand that makes my problems disappear within no time. :)
I cannot recall any incident where I demanded for anything and he said 'No'. All my wishes are fulfilled. Not that he is some billionaire but he doesn't ever make me feel the pinch of money. He does his best to keep me happy by sacrificing his own wishes and even needs.

I hear so many incidents of girls not being allowed to wear jeans or not getting to pursue their career, or not allowed to go out of their hometown but I am really lucky my dad is broad-minded and he doesn't put any such restrictions on me. Moreover, he allowed me to follow my dreams. I am so proud to say my dad treats me as he treats my brother. :)

I would like to share an incident here. I once met with a small accident and when I returned home I narrated it to my dad. And his first question was 'I hope the other child wasn't hurt?' and this touched my heart. Not just does he care for me but also for other people's children.

He is not just a great dad but a great person too and I do not say that just because he is my dad but because he really is. He has given me a very good upbringing with a lot of good values for which I can't thank him enough. Inspite of his super busy work schedule, he never let me feel his absence and always had time for me. For all of this, and more that words can't express, this Father's day I would give him a big tight bear hug to express a 'thank you' and a 'love you dad' because if there is one man who won't ever make you cry, he surely is your DAD. :)

To the most caring, loving, supporting and awesome dad in the world - I LOVE YOU PAPA! :)

Watch this Vicks Vaporub #HugYourDad Video :


Now let me ask you, do you remember the last time you hugged your dad? Is your answer 'I don 't remember' or 'When i was a child'? If yes, i suggest you to rush to your dad and give him a tight hug to make him realize how much he means to you.

A hug can do magic! :)

#ComeCloser to Radiant Skin

Hey dear readers!
Hope you all are fine.

Today I'll share with you a few secrets to a glowing & radiant skin.

When it comes to my skin, my first preference is definately VICCO Turmeric Cream.
Fistly I'd like to share the link of my preferred product for getting a radiant skin : Vicco turmeric cream

The reason I prefer this product is because it is ayurvedic and therefore is totally free of chemicals and safe for use. Now I'll share a few natural skin care tips with you.
  1. Always wash your face with cold water. Hot water opens your skin pores and makes your skin darker.
  2. Do not use a facewash scrub daily as it will damage your skin. Scrubs are meant to be used maximum twice a week to clear the skin.
  3. If you have oily skin, wash your face at least twice a day with warm water.
  4. Before moving out in the sun, don't forget to use a Sunscreen lotion to avoid tanning.
  5. Drink 12 glasses of water a day to keep your skin moisturized and glowing for long.
  6. Make sure you apply moisturizer after bath to keep your skin soft all day long.
  7.  To remove your acne scars, cut a potato slice and rub it on the affected area. This will lighten the marks.
  8. Honey is always a good thing. When you wake up, drink a glass of water with two tea spoons honey. Also, you can apply raw honey on your face for 15-20 minutes and wash your face for getting a glowing complexion.
  9. You can use Gulab jal (Rose water) along with a cotton swab and cleanse your face with it for a refreshing feeling and glowing skin.
  10. Mix 1 tbsp sandalwood powder along with ½ tbsp turmeric powder and a few drops of gulabjal. Apply the mixture to your face and wash after 10 minutes.
  11.  Fresh aloevera gel when applied to face can also help you remove skin tan.
  12.  Multani mitti (fuller's earth) is also very helpful to keep your skin cool and free from acne. Mix some Multani Mitti with water and gulabjal and apply the mixture. Wash as soon as it gets dry.
  13. Sandalwood is yet another great choice to keep skin radiant, cool and keeps your skin blemish-free.
  14.  Papaya skin can also be rubbed on face as a home remedy to clean your skin.
  15.  Mint is very helpful. Take a few washed mint leaves and grind them by adding a few drops of water in a mixer and apply it paste on your face for 3-5 minutes and wash off. It keeps your skin cool and clear.
I hope these natural remedies will help you get a healthy and radiant skin.Apart from this, VICCO turmeric ayurvedic cream is always there to look after your skin problems! :)
 Note : Make sure you do not talk while the face packs are applied as it will cause wrinkles to your skin.
