Hope you like this latest blog of mine that features some products used by me and my family.


I've titled it in Bengali as "Kena Jaye" which means "can be bought"

Hence, these products can also be bought by you if you like them as much as we do.

In the coming days, I'll be adding some more products, as and when I remember them or reuse them.

As all these goods have been bought from UK, hence you can google them out and see if these are also available in your country.

Either one of your local hypermarkets would be selling them, or you might get them on Amazon, eBay, Flipkart, etc.

Earlier this year we went to India where temperatures were peaking at 43 degrees and last month we went to Italy and Switzerland where it was summer and so we had to endure highs of over 30 degrees at some places. It was difficult going out in the blazing sun and so we chose to go out in the evenings and come back to our hotel late at night.

We stayed in Novotel Malpensa which was very near to the airport and the hotel provided shuttle service.

From the airport we could get direct coaches to Milan and Stresa in Italy and Lugano in Switzerland.

All the 3 places were an hour's drive from the airport. Though car hire would have been cheaper for a family of four but we decided not to hire a car but go for those buses which are very well-equipped, punctual and reliable and thus enjoyed the scenic beauty of the countryside and cities while being driven around....

We visited Lake Maggiore and Lake Lugano surrounded by beautiful green hills and valleys.

From Milano Malpensa Airport you can get Terravision buses to Milan Central Station.

From this airport you can also get Alibus shuttle to Stresa and Jet Bus to Lugano.

All these buses including the hotel shuttle service come to Terminal 1 and Terminal 2.

Here are some serene pics of Lugano for you to see :-)


What I must mention is this wonderful product that always made me feel fresh both in India and in Italy despite the soaring temperatures.

Secret Deodorant Outlast Clear Gel Sport Fresh


It's such a superb deodorant that I've stopped using all the others that I used in the past.

It really does what it says. My most favourite deodorant till date and I'm now committed to it.

I bought this from Amazon. See if you can get it. No harm in trying and you'll thank me if you like it :-)

I've been using this for nearly a year as I first bought it late last year.

Also, as winter is now approaching, let me mention that Vaseline works well for dry lips.


Diprobase works well for dry hands


and Sanex is really good to keep dryness at bay.


I don't suffer much from dryness as much as my hubby and children do as they go out more often than I do.

Hope you like this new playlist I made on Saira Banu. Some lovely songs have been picturised on her.

She's one of my favourite actresses. She did her schooling in UK before going to Bombay for her film career.


Her husband, the veteran actor Dilip Kumar has been ailing for a long time.

I wish them both courage, strength and resilience during these hard times.
