Five Friday Favorites #8.

Hey everyone 🙂

DSC04234123

It’s another Friday and another FFF post 😀

I’m using a lot of bath & body, skincare products, fragrances and even some basic makeup like liner, gloss, powder! Last 4-5 months of 2013 I literally used nothing, even my baths were boring 😦 but now I’m loving it all 😀

So this week’s favorites comprises of a mixed bag of stuff 😀

Firstly, the nail paint I wore this week, Faces sand coat in Tiramisu – I reviewed this nail paint this week. I’m really enjoying this shade and its finish 😀 more on this in the detailed post, Click here to read it 😀

The Body Shop Blue Corn Face Mask – I bought this face mask in November but got around to using it just this January. Though my skin is relatively less oily these days compared to what it is in summers *horror* 😮 but this mask still deep cleans my face so well and balances out the oils 😀 I’ll review this in detail only when I’ve used it more thoroughly!

The Body Shop Honeymania cream body scrub – this once has such an amazing texture 😀 I reviewed it here. I can even use this scrub daily 😛

Bath & Body Works Pink Chiffon fragrance mist – I bought so many fragrance mists that you saw in my BBW haul post. All of them are so awesome but I get confused which one to use and which not to 😛 so I take turns in using one for one week and so on. And this week it was this gorgeous Pink Chiffon that was my most used one! It’s such a sweet girly scent! ❤ and isn’t that bottle adorable? 😀

Revlon lip butter in Peach Parfait – This was my first Revlon lip butter and I loveeeee it so much. But amidst other new stuff, it takes a backseat now and then but I have kept it outside my makeup drawer these days not to forget using it 😛 I have already used more than half of it and would love to make this the first makeup product I finish completely 😀 I guess you all know about Revlon lip butters but a detailed review by me coming up this week!

So these were my five favorites from this week!

Don’t forget to share your favorites with me in the comments 🙂

Five Friday Favorites #7.

DSC040931boon

Hey guys!

I’m back with this week’s Five Friday Favorites. I hope you guys enjoy reading such posts as much as I enjoy writing them 😀

You must have seen in the news how Chicago(&other places) in US are facing extreme weather with some polar vortex which has hit these northern areas. I was so scared to come back in this weather. But the weather here is better and though there’s fresh snowfall almost every alternate day, it’s tolerable!

And for some weird reason, I’m actually enjoying this cold weather. Temperature these days remains in the range of -18/-12 to 0/1 degree Celsius! 😛

Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale haul.

Hey everyone!

I’m back in Chicago after a month long holiday which flew away so fast, honestly, I wasn’t in the mood to come back 😛 but have to go on and get back to the hectic life  😦

I just got back yesterday and picked up my haul package from my friend’s place today and here I am showing you all 😀

Here in the US, brands like BBW and VS have amazing clearance sales twice a year in which they clear off almost all products and make way for new launches!

These semi annual sales are so amazing and a great way to stock up stuff for the coming months.

I just casually noticed their Semi Annual Sale in December when I was in India and you all know how much I love bath and body products and I couldn’t resist these sales at all 😛 when I show you at what prices I have bought these stuff, you’ll definitely be quite envious 😛

I only shopped from BBW and BBW brings back products that they have discontinued earlier and sells them off in these sales!

My stuff came in 2 parts. No, don’t get hyper seeing the quantity 😛 I’m not going to keep all of this stuff for myself 😀

Read on to see what I got 😀

Thanksgiving/November big haul!

Hey everyone!

I told you all last week that I’ll show you my November haul soon so here I am! I had not bought a single thing whole of September and October except few essentials for this weather and so I hauled quite a lot of stuff this month.

The sales here during thanksgiving are just huge! I’d heard about the sale season but never knew the extent of the discounts! And most brands start sales at the beginning of number itself!

Five Friday Favourites #3

Hey everyone!

DSC0360134

Eid Mubaarak to all of you! 🙂 how are you celebrating Eid? We have very close family friends who are Muslim and throw a huge party for Eid everytime and sadly we couldn’t go this time and aahh.. I’m already missing the chicken biryani 😦

I know I’ve been very inactive of late and so sorry I haven’t been able to reply to all comments. I’ll be even more inactive next week onwards; I have a few posts timed for publishing in my drafts but I didn’t want to miss the Five Friday Favourites and here I am 😀

DSC036012

So, first up is The Body Shop Coconut Hair oil ~ my hair is going through a very bad phase; the rain is making it even frizzier and worse! 😦 this oil is giving my hair all the extra love it needs! Initially I had a lot of samples of this oil but I finally purchased the full bottle last week and I’m loving this oil much more than my normal hair oil!

Revlon lip butter in Sorbet ~ I really really love Revlon lip butters and this new shade is a gorgeous bright pink. It really makes my face look very bright and pretty! Love!

The Body Shop Vanilla body mist ~ I have always had a soft spot for all things vanilla and recently this mist has made a comeback in my favourite scents! I just wish it were travel friendly! Full review here.

MAC Technakohl Graphblack ~ I had this on my wishlist forever as I’d read amazing reviews for its good staying power on the waterline and I’m someone who’s always on the lookout for something that stays long on my waterline. Though my all time favourite for the waterline is the Lakme kohl ultimate but I’m loving this one at the moment!  

Lakme CC Cream ~ this gives a good natural semi-matte finish and reduces redness very well! I’m definitely enjoying using this a lot!

So, that’s it for this week!

I would love to know your favourites so do share them in the comments below! 🙂

See you! Have a great weekend! 

REVIEW: The Body Shop Vanilla Body Mist.

The Body Shop Vanilla Body Mist.

Ingredients:

DSC01956

Price: INR645 for 100ml.

Available at The Body Shop outlets and a few online stores.  

My experience:

I got this body mist recently from Purplle.com. It was a totally random purchase. Purplle was selling the mists with the old prices and so I thought I should definitely get hold of one of these beauties:)

DSC01955

I was quite apprehensive till I got my order about the expiry of the product, but I guess since it’s just a spray, the expiry doesn’t matter, or does it?

But my doubts were of no use as the mist I got was well within safe use 😀

Moving on to the review now.

I had a lotttt of favourites this month, as you can see!
