Things to take care of during monsoons

Parenting - Anupriya kapur - September 28, 2017

I hate to admit it but every year I dread the monsoons. It warms my heart that my son still loves to play in the rain just like he did when he was a toddler, yet I lose sleep over all the diseases that come along during the rainy season. Apart from viral infections, the scarier ones are like chikungunya, dengue and Zika and some which we don’t even know the names of. I have seen some of my friends suffer specially from chikungunya and still complaint of joint pains even after months of apparently recovering from it. On top of that symptoms like fever, rash, joint pain, joint swelling and muscle pain are common among all. Continue Reading

Clothes, Fashion, For the soul - Anupriya kapur - September 18, 2017

Google has recently launched their Arts & Culture platform in a big way internationally. A part of its project is #SareeOnMe with Google India in which they wanted to showcase real women who wear sarees. And for me it was just overwhelming to be a part of it. The image would in the calendar to be launched in 2018 and has accomplished women from various walks of life. It has been a very humbling experience to say the least. I settled for the simplest and most inexpensive handloom saree that I have (I bought it for Rs 600 recently). I wanted to use this opportunity to prove that even in its simplest form, a handloom saree exudes elegance which is unmatched. All the pictures have been clicked by Naina Redhu. Continue Reading

Staycation at Novotel Resorts and Spa

For the soul, Travel - Anupriya kapur - September 15, 2017

Whenever I used tell people that I haven’t ever visited Goa, I got the same reaction as I do when I tell people I haven’t watched Sholay yet! Anyway, finally, the jinx was broken and I got to visit Goa. Better still, I got to visit Goa with my son Kabir. We were invited by Novotel Resorts and Spa for a weekend staycation. And only during the staycation, I realised how much we needed it. It had been two years since we got to travel together and the recent loss of our pet was making staying at home tough. Yet, I was jittery as we were supposed to spend two days together, would Kabir enjoy his little vacation with just me around. Continue Reading

What keeps me going

Fitness, Fitness related - Anupriya kapur - September 1, 2017

Quite often I get messages asking me to write about what keeps me motivated to continue my workouts. And I have never written about it because I always thought my reasons are the same as anyone else’s or that others might find my reasons too trivial. Basically, I have had my share of inhibitions in sharing them but I also understand that it’s unfair to my blog not to.

Not too long ago, I used to struggle to workout until it finally became a part of my routine and there is so much I have gained from being physically fit that there is no other way I would have it. Come to think of it, that in itself is one of the reasons which keeps me motivated. Here are a few more.

1) My son – I started taking care of my health for the first time after two years of giving birth to my son. I hated falling sick again and again. I feel it’s my responsibility to be strong and healthy, only then I can take care good care of him. An added advantage is that I also get to lead by example. Continue Reading
