GurgaonMoms She Means Success (SMS) Business Mixer

When it is a GurgaonMoms She Means Success (SMS) Business Mixer – even bad weather cannot dampen the spirit! Like our all other Mixers ,the July Business Mixer was a super success with engaging networking learning and energizing – a lot to take home!

Our speaker @kritiisurii from @women_talk_money shared some invaluable information and tips on personal finance for women entrepreneurs. She answered queries from the audience. And helped many clear their doubts and offered help as well.

Ankita Arya from @homeaccentsbyankitaarya shared her amazing inspiring journey with all of us. How a qualified CA and a topper turned a certified tea taster and then came into the field of wall papers and home accents- a fascinating story that inspired us all. As she rightly mentioned – zeal to create your own identity and financial independence can take us to places!

There was an exciting quiz, networking, photoshoot and more.

There were scrumptious snacks and chats from our food partner – @chtra_sharma ‘s Cuisineo by @chefskitchencaterers

We thank our Venue Partner @ruchika0285 and HOP – @houzofplay for being such a wonderful host at their beautiful cafe.

We look forward to seeing more of you in our future Business Mixers.

6 Back-to -School Tiffin Recipes

“Aaj khane mein kya banega?”
“What should I give in the school tiffin tomorrow?”
These are some of the questions that totally haunt me. It is a mammoth task to think last minute. As a family, we all want to eat healthy and tasty.
Schools have recently reopened after the summer break and children want to take something interesting in their tiffin boxes.
Priyanka Talreja has shared some colourful, tasty and healthy tiffin recipes with us. Your child will not be able to resist these for sure!


What a Relief – Meal Planner !

Thinking of what to cook for a meal last minute is another colossal task. Meal planning not only helps in saving time, you also have all the ingredients ready beforehand.
You can make it a weekly ritual as a family where you all sit together and discuss the meals that you all would like to have. It can be a bonding exercise where everyone feels included.

Neha Patil has shared a meal planner with us. This is what she does every week keeping her family’s choices in mind.
