V CareShikakai Paste.

Hi friends!!! I already reviewed V CARE hair growth vitalizer which is one of my favorite hair care products . V care is the brand which is established by a Trichologist . They provide quality hair and skin care products at affordable prices.

Along with V CARE hair growth vitalizer , I also use V care shikakai paste . In childhood I used to wash my hair with shikakai but by the time I entered college  , I found it very messy to use and difficult to wash off . If you don’t apply it properly ,hair will remain greasy . With all these problems , I shifted to shampoo & conditioner regime.. I came to this product when I started searching for a hair wash without parabens or sulphate.When I saw this I was instantly attracted. I was still skeptical but as it was cheap I tried.

V CareShikakai Paste.

Price : 150rs/150gm , 89rs/75gm

Package: It is a simple tube package.

Ingredient list

V CareShikakai Paste.

V CareShikakai Paste.

Texture: It is a dark green colored paste with consistency not too thick or not too runny.

How to use :

Take the needed amount of paste (depends on hair length  ) add double quantity of water and mix well until it lathers.

Massage from the hair root to tip ,leave for 5 mins. You do not need any conditioner for this.

My take on V CareShikakai Paste.

Initially i was very uncomfortable using this as this was kind of extra work. You need to know the exact amount to use ,you need to massage properly for  a clean wash . But i started liking it after the first wash it self . It made my hair look healthy ,shiny and it was soft to touch. I had few incidents when i failed to wash in a proper way and my hair was left greasy.

Likes

  • Affordable.
  • Easily available even in towns ( at least in south India)
  • No need of conditioner.
  • Sulphate ,paraben free.
  • Easily usable traditional formula.
  • Results in healthy looking hair.
  • Hair is soft and i love to touch it.
  • Decent travel friendly packing.

dislikes

  • People might think it messy to use.
  • Sometimes hair is left greasy..
  • Can not control frizz .

Rating   4.25/5.

Will i recommend this

Yes ,yes . I already recommended to many of my friends and nurses in our hospital.

Will I repurchase V CareShikakai Paste?

I already purchased many tubes in the last 2 yrs.

Hope you enjoyed the post.Please like my facebook page and follow me in Instagram.

Street style store : A detailed review

Hello friends!!!!!!! I do not know whether it comes for you or not , my FB page is full with advertisements of  Street style store . It is very hard ( especially for me) to resist those cute sandals in those pictures but i really doubted the website’s validity .They have some amazing offers for footwear like 999rs/3 ,999rs/2 ,1199rs/2;believe me they are amazing . When i searched for reviews nothing in proper was available. I tried to stop myself from buying but the ‘Cash On Delivery ‘ option has made me lose my will . I thought there was nothing to lose . Since then i have made more than 6 purchases over 6 months , i finally think myself to be capable of writing some review on the site .

street style store
                                                                                                      The top i got,it is lovely

WEB SITE Design of street style store:

It is very simple one. There are only two levels of filters. Like 1. Clothing»» tops/dresses. You can not find many filters or sorting options like you see in other e-commerce stores.
Range The site offers footwear, clothing, bags.


Foot wear

is kind of ‘wide range’ of all categories. Around 100 pretty pieces are available.

 

Floral shoes 899
                                                                                  Floral shoes 899

 

sandals 999/3
                                                                                                               sandals 999/3
My favorite of all
                                                                                                              My favorite of all


Clothing :

Earlier it used to have some 50-100 items, some how only 20-30 available now.The number changes frequently .Most of it is western wear but some fusion and Indian wear is also available.


Bags

Around 20. The items are mostly basic, all time ‘must have’s
All the items actually give me the impression of Asian cheap fashion website items (which might be the case here). But most of them especially footwear looks soooo cute that I decided to take risk.


Payment :

Even if this is a ‘ drop ship ‘ of an Asian website the best thing about this is the facility of C.O.D. Though they charge 50/- more for C. O. D, It is still a better option.


Price range :

They are not extremely cheap but still I think the products are decently priced. Some of the shoes are actually low priced.


Delivery :

This is the most distressing thing about the site. If you ever get tempted by the products and want to buy, I advise you to buy with C. O. D. and then forget about it completely.I still have few orders due which were placed some 3 months back. One order placed on 30 June was delivered on 12 September.


Packaging :

It is an average packing. The captions on boxes are cute, but I still prefer my shoes to have some padding and protection when they are traveling.

The standard package from street style store
                                                                                           The standard package from street style store
Don't you agree with that?
                                                                                   Don’t you agree with that?


Products Quality.

I should say it is decent .I bought almost 10 pieces of footwear,3 in clothing and 1 bag and till now  I did not find any manufacturing defects till now . The quality is average and they do not look cheap. They are worth the price paid for them.

Cancellations

There are no cancellations ,either you take the product or return it .

Returns & Refunds

Once i returned the product and after 2 months of the pick up the status changed as ‘product received’ but still no mention about the refund of item  thinking of contacting customer care.

 

Overall if you have patience enough to wait for months for your orders ,you can happily go ahead with this site. To save yourself from anticipatory heart attack go for C.O.D.

Tales from the crib : Review

Tales from the Crib

Tales from the Crib

Author: Jennifer Coburn

Genre: Chick Lit, Women’s Fiction

Lucy finds out that she is pregnant at the age of 38 , after so many disastrous previous pregnancies this was a ray of hope . But there is another surprise waiting for her ,  her husband wants a divorce .When he hears about pregnancy ,he comes up with the idea of ‘co-parenting’ ,that is they will live together, he will pay her bills ,they will raise kid together ,but each can have separate lives and they can date anyone they want. While Lucy hates the idea, she has no other(proper) support.

While Lucy is engulfed in to many complications that pregnancy has to offer ,husband starts dating . Later ,the story is all about how they both find lost spark between them and start experimenting with parenting.

 

My take on Tales from the Crib  :

I got this book for free from amazon through Bookbub. ( You can read the whole article here.)The book at most times very hilarious . Many episodes were ‘laugh out loud’ ones. There are many funny characters. Her self-centered ,vivacious mother, her cousin who married herself , two old typically Jewish aunts ,her husbands ‘perfect girlfriend’ Natalie to offer good humor.

My problem with the book was that  at times ,it was too dramatic ( In my thinking it is too  filmy). Lucy and her husband are brought back together by a tragic accident to him and i saw this in many Telugu films.Most of her problems are solved in way that is ‘too good to be true ‘. I really felt uncomfortable about the ‘quickie’ she has with a random guy during a car wash .(really , inside the car when car is in car wash) . How can a mother of toddler can have something extremely unprotected and dangerous.

Rating for Tales from the Crib : 3.8/5

You can buy the product by clicking the link below ,i will get small commission which will keep me encouraged.

Bookbub

Hello friends !!! When i was in my Graduation ,i used to spend half of my pocket money on books. On first week of every month it was almost a ritual to show up at the book store . To save money for books , I never used to go for restaurants or films . Along with the books of medicine I used to complete at least 100 other books per year ( excluding  150-200magazines) . I read every kind of book but mysteries,thrillers and romantic ones are my fav. Later I realized that I only wanted to keep biographies , histories ,self help and some humorous books . I never looked at regular romance or mystery books for the second time . Alternatively I tried buying second hand or borrowing . Books of new authors are not usually available that way .

Bookbub

Once I discovered E books it changed my life entirely , I can just carry my Tab . At any given point of time , I have something like 300-400 books in my Tab . That means,if i need some text book that is with me ,if I get bored and feel like reading a comic ,just in between my busy O.P (Out patients ) I can find it handy.  I can not tell you how much I love the experience.

bookbub

Though I find it very distressing at the beginning  for reading from a bright screen , I got habituated later.But most recently I have been taking the full advantage of my Tab ,that is with Bookbub.

Bookbub is a website which offers you daily offers on major E book apps. So that a book which usually costs around 300-400 bucks , for a limited period ,you can get for free or on discounted price.

Using is simple ,first you need to get registered with your E mail ID, then the site will ask you to select from your favorite genres and authors . That is it ,you will get daily deals on books from different sources . I use Amazon and Kobo readers.

I have collected almost 300+ books in a span of one month . I like reading books of up coming authors  , but I can not risk my money on them , If I am not sure . This site helps me with that . I have read few cozy mysteries , which I do not consider reading again . I got some memoirs and biographies as well ,which I will save without deleting for future. Though you do not get much famous books , for people like me ,it is definitely advantageous. Most of my friends signed up after I told them about this.

 

Hope you also find this useful…..Just click this link BookBub ( I am not paid for this,I just kept it for your convenience ) .

Cut from the same cloth : Book review

51qDDDXe-ZL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_Genre : Historical Romance .

Elizabeth Hampton must find a wealthy husband before her family is completely ruined ;her only strength is her beauty and she definitely knows how to show it  off with pretty clothes. So when she meets the stubborn , anti aristocrat Valen, Lord St. Clare , wearing a suit which was ‘cut from the same cloth’  of her dress , the humiliation she feels has no boundaries.

Valen halfheartedly  promised his ‘lying on death bed’ father that he would find a suitable girl . He developed an immediate urge to torment the head strong   Elizabeth on the very first instant .

But can the fight away the developing ‘ blood boiling chemistry ‘ between them ?

Will the tricks of Lady Honore and the threats of Merot succeed in breaking the walls ?

 

My take

Set in the background of Nepolean era England the romantic story with some danger really succeeded in engaging for a few hours . Though the love story seemed some what immature ‘love/hate ‘ kind of story , i liked it. At some places i laughed till my cheeks ached.

Likes

The chemistry between the protagonists and the witty writing .

Dislikes

The climax was rather abrupt , the character of Merot did not reach the expectations.

Favorite character

Lady Honore  , Lord Horton .
