Pic 96: Beauty box

I used to order the Target Beauty Box every month. Off late, it wasn't very exciting. So, stopped ordering. But, this month was unlike the recent boxes. Hence, got 1 for myself.

Pic 94: Dusk

Dawn and dusk are mutual friends of the sun; one opens the door for him to a brand new day and the other one has to shut it to embrace the darkness of night.

Pic 79: Sweet Craving

I'm craving for sweets/desserts like never before.  It could be because I'm nursing. Don't know and I ain't complaining.

We bought a carrot-walnut cake with cream cheese frosting to celebrate our daughter's seventh month birthday yesterday.  Oh my! ! This is one of the best that I have had in a very long time. In my hubby's words,  this is carrot halwa so delicious.

Pic 47: Best diaper rash cream

My baby is on diapers 24/7. She's on cloth diapers mostly..but during night time I put her on disposables. During her first month, she was always on disposables and had very bad diaper rashes..we were asked to use desitin extra strength.  It helped to some extent..but didn't satisfy me.  After we moved to cloth diapers,  she was better.

During our India trip, my friend recommended #himalayaherbals #babyproducts. I bought their rash cream on her recommendation..but didn't open it for almost 3 weeks.

I introduced solids to her at 5 months and that is when I started experiencing diaper rash again...bad rashes. .so. .thought of giving the #himalayaherbals #diaperrashcream a try... IT IS THE BOMB.COM

Loved it so much. .my daughter's rash vanished in just 2 days. .just wow.

PS: This is not a paid review. It's just my opinion. Himalaya Herbals don't even know that I exist
