Fab bag October 2016

This should have been posted last month itself, but somehow it got postponed. I decided to publish it anyway.

October was a month of celebrations and the Fabbag October 2016 also matched the whole vibe and was named ‘The Festive High’.

 

The definite show stopper of month is the bag itself. It is a metallic Golden clutch type bag which in future could be used as a party clutch. ( I am going to peel off the logo of Fabbag, of course).

Fabbag October 2016

What I got in my Fabbag October 2016:
Fabbag October 2016

CAL liquid lipstick, Carassing coral ( Full size 450/-)

 

It is a very bright coral color and I am not sure whether I am going to use it. It is too bright for my skin tone.

 

Votre lip scrub- 10gm ( Full size for 300/-)

Fabbag October 2016

This is a gel scrub with orange color and creamy texture. I am keeping this for my upcoming trip this month.

 

Kaya Brightening serum 5ml ( 30 ml for 1495/-)

This is a very pleasant smelling serum and gets absorbed easily. I am not sure yet whether I am impressed enough to buy the full sized one.

 

Veda earth cleansing facial oil 25ml ( Full size 350/-)

Fabbag October 2016

 

Again the packaging is far more interesting than the oil. Oil has a very strong Ayurvedic smell. I am not sure about using it as they didn’t specify whether this can be used for all skin types. I am not ready to experiment right before my trip.
Stay quirky Nail Polish-02 (6 ml for 165/-)

I wish they gave a lighter color.

 My take on Fabbag October 2016: Over all this bag is Okayish. The thing I am going to use without doubt are the ‘bag’, the serum, lip scrub.

Fab bag- August 2016

I have been feeling bad about Fab bag for the last few months as they were sending it only in the second half of the month. However, I was surprised by the Fab bag- August 2016 edition as it came by 6th this month.

Fab bag- August 2016

These are the things which I got in my Fab bag- August 2016 edition

Fab bag- August 2016

  1. The most interesting thing this time is the Geri G. Innocent foundation. This is worth 2500/- and I got it in full size. I was asked to chose some make up product from Geri G and I never heard of that brand before. I did some research and found out – Geri G is a celebrity make up artist and running a make up line with limited options. This foundation, i needed some darker shade. But Fab bag gave me only two options and I chose the darker one. This looks slightly lighter on my skin, Though I am not looking like a vampire. I am trying to figure out some way to use it.Fab bag- August 2016

2. Just herbs Malabar Lemongrass Invigorating Body wash (545/- for 200 ml)

I received some 30 ml bottle. This is a lemon yellow colored body wash with a sweet smell.

3. Kronocare Anti Turn(oil) Repairing Hair oil – 2875/- for 500ml

This has a peculiar smell. Even though this sounds promising, it is rather very expensive for a hair oil (at least for me).

Fab bag- August 2016

4. Natural Bath & Body Gel Face Masque – 325/- 100ml

This is a very fruity smelling face mask, this exactly looks, feels and smells like the Everyouth orange peel off mask, but this is not a peel off. ( I love peel off masks, not because they work well. They give me good feeling while peeling them off)

5. Livon Serum  3ml packs 3 nos each 5ml.

They said it is a new formula or something what they usually say when they change the packing. I will see..

 

Fab bag June 2016

I got the Fab bag June 2016 bag in July as I ordered late in June.  I was very much doubtful whether to subscribe or not and finally gave in. This bag is the Beauty addiction bag and has 4 products in it and I got a jewellery item as Fab bag June 2016a complimentary gift.

 

These are things i got in my Fab bag June 2016….

Fab bag June 2016

Skin yoga Coffee body scrub  ( Full size 845/-)

This is semi powdery mixture which completely looks like  regular coffee powder. The smell is heavenly. The scrub smakes the skin  soft from the first use itself.

Korite Buerre Pure shea butter ( 50gm 445/-)

Fab bag June 2016

It has a very smooth and buttery texture  ( which it is supposed to have) which I love.

Fab bag June 2016

B:Blunt  Spotlight Hair Polish ( 250 rs / 30ml)

I am very excited about this product as I wanted to buy this earlier.

Fab bag June 2016

Be a bombshell Eye shadow crayon- The boss ( Full size 1200/-)

When they asked me to select a shade, I selected a black one. But ended up getting this instead. This is a golden shade.The thing I love about the crayon is that it  glides smoothly on skin and has a very beautiful golden shade.

I also got this Style fiesta accessory as a complimentary.

Fab bag June 2016

The cost is shown as 499/-

Over all I am happy with the bag as I got these many goodies.

SUGARBOX review: JULY 2016 edition

Hiiiiiii friends!!!!! Happpeeeeeeeee weekend!!!

It is always pretty good to get subscription boxes. I think the surprise element more than the goods, makes us drool over them. For my birthday I wanted to try another subscription box ( as you know I get Fabbag )  I browsed through many boxes and finally settled to this one.

Sugarbox is a subscription box which offers you apparel,  cosmetics, accessories and lifestyle products for 1499/- a month. I bought only this month’s bag for two reasons, I was not sure whether I was going to like it or not and another most important thing is my room in the hostel has no place for new things at present. ( It might sound silly but it is the sad truth).

This box is a huge box of this size. The theme is ‘Monsoon crush’.

wp-1467469769582.jpgwp-1467469813052.jpg

They nicely decorated this box with satin ribbons. Like every other subscription boxes, a card welcomed me. After that, First thing I saw was this purse which looks like and says this Audrey Hepburn’s statement.

SUGARBOX JULY 2016SUGARBOX JULY 2016SUGARBOX JULY 2016

Second thing is this cute butterfly storage container and I got a Chocolate cake in it.

SUGARBOX JULY 2016

This printed umbrella is damn cool and seems to have every thing in the world printed on it. From Eifell tower to cutting chai.

SUGARBOX JULY 2016

These dior earrings are pretty, I already have them in black. I am not sure whether I like this color or not.

I got this fruit facial kit in pretty packaging.

SUGARBOX JULY 2016

This fringe Boho fringe shrug is adorable.

SUGARBOX JULY 2016

There is no price list mentioned. I can say I love this box and I might end up subscribing to this anytime.

Budget Makeup, BLueheaven.com

Hi friends!!!!!!! My schedule these days is sooo hectic that forget writing, I am not able to look at my blog for days. I even stopped shopping for many days. Recently, I went on mini shopping spree for my birthday. I am always on look for budget friendly brands. On off such is blueheaven.com for cosmetics. I have been using this brand’s lipsticks for more than 10 months now. This brand has gained enough of my trust that i did shop more.

Blueheaven.com

This time I bought 2 eye liners, a blush and 6 lipsticks.

Blueheaven.comBlueheaven.comwp-1466253197800.jpg

Blueheaven.com offers  a wide range of cosmetic and beauty products at affordable prices. They have a long list of lipsticks in 3 ranges, they have face and eye make up also. Their felt tip eyeliner is simply amazing. They also have skin care range – bleaches, facial kits, massage creams and hair removal cream. I have been using Blueheaven.com haldi- chandan massage cream for the last 6 months and i love it. Moreover, the Blueheaven.com is entirely husband friendly. That is…it comes in budget and won’t give your husband a heart attack.

For all this stuff the bill was 1000/-. I have used lipsticks already and will review soon. They are decently priced and of good quality. Kajal is also lovely. I am  sure, I am going to try many more products from the same brand.

Only problem might be getting a proper understanding of colors for any makeup product.  Buying cosmetics online has this biggg draw back. As there were not much reviews on these products, I just guessed their true colors. Most of them turned out fine.

Stay tuned for the upcoming reviews.

Hotel Willow Hill, Ooty

Ooty left me with some very wonderful memories. This hotel willow hill is part of it. When i was browsing through all the hotels, this one got my attention instantly.   It looked like those hotels which I used to see in old movies shot on hill stations.  Seeing that even reviews were good, I opted for it.

willow hill

My experience with the willow hill, Ooty-

willow hillwillow hill

We faced some problem in reaching the hotel as it was in some distant location and our driver was unaware of it. We could reach with help of the staff. We were surprised to find one telugu speaking person in the staff who was very helpful throughout our stay. The staff also helped us in getting a bike for rent and one person even gave me his helmet for 3 days.

The hotel rooms were built in the cabin style with wood covering normal cement walls. That gave me a very good cozy feel.  The interiors were also matchy with the English cabin theme with dim lighting and high cushion chairs.

willow hill

The room had a  huge glass window with  a garden and valley view.  We used to see staring out of the window drinking steamy coffee and talking about all the rubbish in the world for hours. The bathroom was also big enough to have a good time bathing.

They have a big, pretty garden which was in bloom when we visited. There was also a small children’s play area which we used shamelessly.

As it is in south India and we too only eat south Indian food, we liked the food. We had plenty of coffee. Actually we were forced to, because of the temperature.

So, as a whole I loveeeee this hotel and i have recommended this to many already.

 

My rating for The willow hill, Ooty is….

Location               4.7/5,

Amenities             4/5,

Service quality      4/5,

Cleanliness           4.5/5,

Food                   4/5,

Overall               4.5/5

Stay tuned for next reviews and posts.

May 2016 Fab bag

Hi friends!! Waiting for Fab bag has become a routine for me. I have no idea why they are taking so much time to send. It is arriving only after 15th of each month.
The theme for this is “The Summer Escapade”

 

I simply adore the bright green bag, I started using it as a pen’s pouch now.
I got 4 products..

wp-1463222619046.jpeg
Nyassa Tea Tree Face Wash
( Rs400 /- for 145ml)

The Nature’s Co White tea Night cream
( Rals895/- for 50ml)

wp-1463222578855.jpeg
Seasoul Dual eyeshadow palette – SS8
( Full size Rs 900/-)

wp-1463222555156.jpeg
Inveda Sunscreen Cream Gel SPF 30 (Rs 225 for 75months)

The face wash might be very useful for me, for my night duty days or for trips.
The Seasoul palette I got is of almost nude one, which I already have many palettes.
I really doubt using night cream.
I have many tubes of sunscreen lotion but as this is very light in texture, I might like it.

Stay tuned for more posts…

April, 2016 Fab bag.

Hello guys!!!

My prolonged absence is the result of a vacation and later unfortunate hacking of my blog.

It took me days to sort out the problem and get back to you…terribly missed writing.

Earlier I used to get Fab bags by the end of first week, but this time I don’t know what happened, I got my April, 2016 Fab bag only on 16th of April. I must re think about my future subscriptions. April month’s fababag is ” It’s a spring thing” bag.

It has five products in it, 3 beauty, 1 makeup and 1 jewellery.

These are the things I got in April 2016 Fab bag…

wp-1461128875799.jpegVantiv Energisng shampoo Full size- Rs 187/- for 250ml

april 2016 Fabbag
april 2016 Fab bag,

Catrice long lasting eye pencil Waterproof 020 The wolrd’s greyest- Full size Rs330/-

Style Fiesta (Full size: Rs 499/-) . Honestly, I am not able to understand what type of jewellery piece this is.. It is y shaped and lacks any hooks on one arm.

 

I am really not that happy with April 2016 Fab bag. No product excited me as such…

I will try to be more frequent from now on wards.

Stay tuned…

TheHLabel – Affordable designer wear

TheHLabel – Affordable designer wear


Hello, friends!!!!!!!! I always feel that there is a significant gap between a common consumer and designer wear. One reason is availability the other reason is the price. TheHlabel is trying to bridge the gap, is a clothing website made with the designs of students of Fashion college “Hamstech”. The idea was to promote those budding designers.When I visited the website I could not believe it as the designs start from around 500 bucks. Seriously designer wear starting at Rs.500.

I was very glad. Though I always wanted to have designer wear it looked ridiculous spending thousands of rupees on simple things just because they have a designer tag. So when I first visited this site, I was pretty excited.

The layout is neat and simple. But I faced some technical issues like one dress appeared to be 0 rs while checking out. I continued to order as I thought it was some promotional offer. Then later realised it to be a technical error. Another problem I faced was with my ordered dress. Two days after ordering it, I got a call that ‘the product’ was out of stock. So I had to select another dress in the same price. With all the process it took >20 days for me to get the package. But it was Okay for me as it was a designer item and I am a patient person.

Another thing I forgot to mention is that I got a Rs.500 as a ‘first purchase discount’ . So I got a pretty dress and an awesome necklace for just Rs.1300.

The package is good and sturdy, the items came in a box labeled with ‘TheHlabel’.

I am satisfied with packing and very happy with products. The dress looks really cute with the bow.
