Indulge in Creativity with Matrika Woman's Journals

Hello Every One
Today I am going to do a different kind of review , Review of a Woman's  Journal  from Matrika .

Recently I got a Woman's  Journal from  Matrika's  as a part of their Blogger's  Outreach  Program .
Too happy to receive it as it took me back to golden period of my childhood , where in I used to do lots of activities like Drawing , Coloring , Painting , Collecting stickers etc.

About the brand :
Matrika is a brand which has good collection of products like Diaries , Journals , Notebooks .
Their products are of high quality and are colorful and one feels proud owning them .

The brand is owned by SFA Prints Pvt Ltd , an Indian Company based out of Sivakasi .
The name Matrika  derives from the Sanskrit word for Mother , denoting the powerful energies .

Matrika's  Paper Products have won the 2016 Book Printer of the year Academic & Trade Award.

This is the Journal I received from them :



Matrika Woman's Journal Comes in 4 beautiful designs & Colors  :

1. Butterfly - Pink " To Dream " 
2.Dragonfly -Dark Brown  " To Fly "
3.Feather - Red  " To Write " 
4.Fish -Blue  " To Glide " 

One can check their collection here :

I got the Red one , Feather .

Features of this Journal :
* Special cover material 
* Hard bound 
* Natural shade paper 
* 8 Coloring pages 
* Stickers for creative writing 
* Pouch on back cover 
* Elastic for safe locking 
* Pen Holder 
* Space for entering personal data 
* Name & Address directory 

How the journal looks like :
 The journal is a like Piece of Art with some lovely features and pages :-) 
Upon opening one can see a page like this ( with a beautiful note written on it )


Then one can find some coloring pages  



 Some pages have lovely stickers which one can use while writing stories / daily routines or updates .




At the end of this Journal one can find some plain pages with " Scribble Your Heart Away " written on it , so one can really scribble their heart in these lovely pages :-) 



My Experience with this Journal :
Basically I am a Creative person . During my school and college days I used to participate in lots of activities like Drawing & Painting competitions .
I had a huge collection of diaries and coloring books which was filled with drawing  & paintings which I used to do a lot as per my mood .
We all know that art like drawing & paintings are a good way to express your feelings , happy or sad , excited or feeling low . 
In the course of time , after getting married and after becoming Mom I was quite away from  one of the favorite hobbies of mine .
So when I received this Journal , I was overwhelmed as it took me to my childhood days where I used to spent hours in front of my dairies & coloring books .
The Lovely drawing sheets & pretty stickers took me to another world of Imagination :-) 
Doing these is a good way to De-stress yourself  and  helps to bring your inner child out :-) 

I am loving this journal and would suggest all to go for it .
As we really need something which would help to De-stress .

Wonderful Experience of Being a Part of J&J Blogger's Meet in Association with Mycity4kids

Hello Every one
In Today's Post I am going to share my wonderful experience of  being a  part of  J&J  Blogger's Meet in association with Mycity4kids.Com .

Last week I got a call from the team of  Mycity4kids  that they are going to organize a Blogger's Meet at  Hitech City in Hyderabad on 16th May . When I got their invitation I was super excited and immediately said Yes to be a part of  the meet . Rest of the details were sent by mail .

Mycity4kids is an Indian parenting site where one can read some useful articles on parenting topics from Mommy blogger's and Pediatricians & experts .
I am a member of this site past 2 years , so know some people from their team .

Once can check the site here : www.mycity4kids.com


Since this was my first Blogger's Meet I was Super Excited .
The meet was scheduled at 10 AM - 1 PM at Hotel Avasa at Hitech City,Hyderabad. 
I reached there on time , did my registration at the counter and upon entering the Hall , saw all new faces :-)
The fact is that We are all connected on Social Media  like Facebook , Instagram & WhatsApp , we rarely meet :-)
Then Met Shavet Jain & Ankita Chuodary , Editorial members of mycity4kid team , whom I know  but haven't met before .
After the initial  introduction , we were called for Photo Shoots , there were  Lots Photo Shoots & Video shoots going on and for some time I  felt like a Celebrity :-) Enjoyed Getting all Lime Light :-)


There were around 27 Mommy bloggers and some members of Mycity4kids team , Some from Johnson & Johnson Team ( Since this event was organized & sponsored by J&J ).
There  were experts from J&J team , and we were asked to ask questions and queries about J&J products .  We all asked our doubts that since it's in news that  J&J  products have lots of chemicals in it , so is it safe to use for small kids .
They gave all answers and to a large extent our doubts were cleared .

This is Deepali from J & J , answering our queries .




There was some Fun Activities and Contests .
Teams were made and each team had either 4 or 5 blogger's and we were asked to name our team .
My team had 4 members and we named our team as Nizami Moms ( Since we all belong to city of Nizam's we thought giving our team's name as Nizami Moms )


We were given some tasks and the team to finish the task in least time would get more points .
One of the task was to clean stains from cloth using the newly launched Liquid detergent from J&J.
We were the first ones to clean all stains from a piece of cloth in a Bowl Wash :-)
This product is yet to reach the market , but it's effective , could remove all stains from clothes and was not harsh on hands . So an excellent baby laundry detergent .


At the end our team Nizami Moms won the contest :-)
And we were given prizes for that .


Winning Team with Deepali ( extreme left ) and Shavet Jain ( extreme right ) 

Our prize was a lovely basket with some skin care products .



There were gift hampers for each blogger and individual photo shoot along with group ones .
The gifts we got :

Introducing Camel Milk Soaps from Aadvik

Hello Every One
Today I am going to  Introduce a New Brand and  New kind of Soaps to my readers & friends .
It's Camel Milk Soaps from Aadvik .

About the Brand
Aadvikfoods.com is a site which has Camel Milk & it's products like Camel milk soaps , Camel milk powder , Camel milk chocolates .
The brand is based out of Delhi and they ship their product all over India.

Camel Milk has lots of health benefits and when used in a soap the outcome is excellent .
Camel milk soaps have moisturizing and anti ageing properties .


I saw these soaps at amazon.in and was eager to try these as I have already used Goat Milk soaps from other brands and I know such soaps are too good .
Got in touch with the brand and got these four variants of soaps to try .

The four soaps I got are :
Peppermint and Rosemary 
Lavender and Jojoba 
Lemon Grass 
Rose 

The first one which I opened and I am using these days is Peppermint and Rosemary .


Product Packaging :
The soap is wrapped in a plastic cover and the outer box is made up of cardboard with all product information and  details given on it .
Product packaging is good.



Price & shelf Life :


Ingredients :



The soap is white in color with a nice fragrance of Peppermint .




Pros :
1. Contains goodness of Camel Milk which is good for skin .
2.Contains Coconut oil , Rice bran oil and Peppermint & Rosemary oil .
3. Has anti ageing properties .
4. Lovely fragrance of Peppermint which is too Refreshing .
5. Forms good lather and cleanses well .
6. Soap does not melts too fast so will last long .
7. Product packaging is good .
8. Affordable Price .
9.Does not makes the skin dry like ordinary soaps .
10 .One can easily buy these soaps from online stores like Amazon.

Cons :
Contains SLES 

What the product claims :
The product claims to moisturize the skin while cleansing , with a great combination of camel milk & peppermint oil it would help to reduce stress and make one feel fresh .

My Experience with the product :
I am using this soap past one week and I am Loving it , specially it's fragrance .
Good enough to uplift one's mood .
The soap lathers well and cleanses well .
Does not makes the skin dry like ordinary chemical laden soaps .
It's claims are not tall and it does what it claims .
One really feels fresh after using this soap .
Although the fragrance does not lasts too long still it has some staying power .
And it's economically priced Rs 150 for 100 gms is not too high as usually products from such Natural brands are too expensive .
So it's a MUST TRY one :-) 

IBB Rating -- 4.7/5 

One can check these soaps at Amazon

Will try other variants soon and will come up with more reviews :-)
