Are you a digital-nomad? Somebody who runs complex coding from a permanent location? Or do you simply switch the laptop on for Netflix? The truth is, choosing an ideal laptop is like choosing a life partner! You have to feel comfortable with your laptop. It must match your work/leisure demands in the long run and be dispensable for every job you want it to do.

Some smart hacks

Lifestyle - Anupriya kapur - May 12, 2018

Life has become taxing with work, unending domestic chores and not to mention, being a mother to a ten-year. I thought it would get easier as Kabir grows older and in some ways it has but for most part, I’m more stressed. Maybe it’s because of the sudden increase in pressure from school regarding academics or his emotional needs or both. And then there is pressure of being a smart mom in just the way Kabir looks at me like I have solution for everything!  So here are some of my secret hacks to that lovely and not-so-well managed home, without losing sleep…aah well, at least not all of it 😉 Continue Reading

3 Amazing Things That Happen To You When You Strength Train

Fitness, Fitness related - Anupriya kapur - May 9, 2018

I was recently told by someone that ‘strength training’ isn’t your thing and you must do something different. This was said to me as I propagate strength and functional training to everyone but probably don’t look the part (no pictures showing my abs et al). And that exactly is what I keep fighting for. Strength training is not only my thing, it should be a thing for every single person irrespective of the gender. We have the notion of it so wrong. Strength training doesn’t necessarily mean you need to have abs or you can suddenly start doing superman push ups. It means that you are building a strong muscle mass to carry you through as you get older. For women, even more so as it helps in increasing bone density. But the reason I started writing this article isn’t because I wanted to rant but I wanted to point out three things you will notice as a woman once you are into body weight training.

Ask anyone to list out the 3 most prized possessions in life and am sure most of us will list family, health, money…agree? Sadly, chances are that we’re already negotiating on the health aspect for some more zeros in our bank accounts. Aren’t we all?

Rewind two generations; the simple and sound lifestyles our grandparents lived flash by. Active lives, zero screen menace. No Doremon robot to dish out gadgets to ease their work. No quick Ola for that lazy ride, No stress to maintain that impossible phone-life balance and no commuting that crazy traffic to be home on time to be by your child. Yes, that life was good, there was a meaning to the word harmony. Their 8 hour sleep never had annoying whatsapp pings to wake them. Continue Reading

Why Casio keyboard is an excellent thing to have

Lifestyle - Anupriya kapur - May 4, 2018

Kids these days are super active and easily distracted, not like our times. Their minds are sharper, engaged in a thousand different things. Being a mother of a young and highly intrigued child, I understand the need to keep him productively occupied. It has been on my mind for a while to keep him occupied with something, where he could learn as well as have fun. Going forward, this could well become his hobby. And let’s not forget, sitting in a place for a while helps build concentration and even though Legos do the job well but I can’t keep buying Legos all the time.  Continue Reading

Weekend at Fairmont Jaipur

Lifestyle, Travel - Anupriya kapur - May 1, 2018

I have been to Jaipur three times already and even though it’s been really long, I distinctly remember that I loved the place each time. So, there was no question about missing the opportunity when Fairmont, Jaipur invited me to spend time over the weekend with Kabir. As luck would have it, two other bloggers with their kids were also invited for the same.

The hotel is situated on the outskirts of Jaipur city and takes about 45 minutes by car to get there. And as usual, since I hadn’t done my research about the place, I was caught by total surprise. This place defines luxury. The kind of luxury which doesn’t intimidate you but fills you with warmth. We were welcomed by a grand reception and the instagrammer in me went a little crazy once I got the glimpse of the property. It’s a fairly new hotel and is inspired by a blend of Rajputana and Mughal architecture and the facade has been made to look like an old fort. Continue Reading
