DabbayWalay - A new subscription box for personal care!

Image
If you google what a subscription box is, you will find this description, “A subscription box is a recurring, physical delivery of niche products packaged as an experience and designed to offer additional value on top of the actual retail products contained in a box. Subscription boxes are a marketing strategy and a method of product distribution.”



So yeah, subscription boxes are for people who like to experiment with new products and like a good bargain deal (who doesn’t?). There are countless subscription box services available worldwide. These services cater different types of product categories, like food (drinks, desserts, cookies, vegan, tea/coffee, etc.), fashion (clothes, makeup, shoes, jewelry, etc.), heath & fitness, tech, books, stationary and several other niches. Now Pakistan is also catching up on this trend and we are seeing several new services popping up, majority of which are related to makeup and books.


Dabbaywalay is also a subscription box service but it is diff…

10 healthy choices I learnt to make from my Amma!

I believe that parents need to make nutrition education a priority in their home environment. It's crucial for good health and longevity to instill in your children sound eating habits from an early age. - Cat Cora

Parents have an unimaginably huge impact on their children’s lives and all the choices that they make. Children are like sponges and they model everything their parents do and incorporate what they see into their own lives, that’s why it is immensely important that parents set the right examples for their children. Research on attitudes indicates that parental warmth together with reasonable levels of control combine to produce positive outcomes on children’s development.
But when it comes to our mothers, their impact is even greater. What they say, do and ask us to do becomes somewhat our personal manual to live life. There are so many habits that they instill in us, some knowingly and some unknowingly. These habits shape our personality and make us see things with a sli…

Life in Karachi and an Insight on How to Survive

Image
Karachi, popularly known as ‘roshniyon ka shehr’ always has some sort of chaos trekking over it; be it political instability, social intolerance or religious differences.  The city is layered with many flavors and colors which form the very reason for its vibrancy.

This large-hearted city will never turn anyone away but will surely test them with periodic trials that make survival continuingly difficult - You need to be tough, well-informed and resilient with the challenges thrown, in order to survive in this metropolis. 

The TrafficThis city is struck by a general urgency and a chaotic calm. Everyone is in a rush to get out from one place and reach the next in the shortest amount of time possible. And since we still haven’t figured out a way to travel at the speed of light this usually means violating basic road ethics.

Frankly, we don’t believe in something as clich├ęd as ‘traffic rules’; we rely on making paths along the way.

"Everyone has the potential to become an encourager. You don't have to be rich. You don't have to be a genius. You don't have to have it all together. All you have to do is care about people and initiate."  - John C. Maxwell
