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!

Hey everyone!

I’m here with my favourite products of this week!

The winters here are very very harsh 😦 it went upto -10 degree Celsius last week. And it has already snowed 2-3 times in the last month. Eeeee I saw snowfall for the first time in my life. I was very excited but the excitement pretty much died down because of the cold 😛 LOL

Bath & Body Works Vanilla Bean Noel Shower Gel Review.

DSC0373523

I apologize to you all a lot for being absent for so long! I don’t know why I’m just having a lot of problems adjusting and managing my time and all my work here! I’m just in between a mess 😦

I did not buy a single thing the whole of October and most of September. Like seriously, not a single makeup or bath/body/hair product. Just a few clothes necessary for the harsh winters here that’s it! Can you believe it? I can’t 😮 but its true!

And now november being the Thanksgiving month and such such heavy sales everywhere I had to buy stuff and so I hauled a little. And to be honest, I’m feeling proud of myself for resisting for so long and the feeling of finally hauling was awesome. Plus, I have bought the stuff at AMAZING prices! I will do a haul post soon, once my last order of November is delivered next week! You’re gonna love the haul 😀

Vellvette Bag Review – June 2013.

DSC031242

Hello everyone 🙂

I got my Vellvette box bag quite late this time too, I just received it this morning.

Firstly, the delay in receiving it curbed my excitement a lot.

Plus, I had very high expectations from the box bag this time as I loved what others had got. But what I actually got didn’t really meet my expectations.

My first may haul :D

I mentioned about this haul in the previous post!

This haul wasn’t planned at all but I’m loving everything I bought yesterday 🙂

I was at DLF promenade with my sister and we wanted to buy something for our mom for Mother’s day and in turn bought stuff for ourselves too 😛

DSC02206

We got the Inglot slim gel lipstick in shade#58 for mom. It’s a gorgeous dark red shade, I’ll swatch it for you guys soon 🙂

I also for a freedom system concealer refill for myself. Its cost is Rs.250 but right now it’s on 30% discount.

Then I checked out the MAC Archie collection! I badly wanted the Kiss & don’t tell lipglass(Rs.1100) and imagine my luck when I found that shade is still in stock BUT I didn’t buy it! I just walked out of the store leaving the lipglass and the petrol blue liner, the most gorgeous two things ever! 😦 self-control its called!

To make myself feel better, I went to newU to check out lipglosses in other brands to see if I can find any similar to kiss& don’t tell. And I bought two lip glosses-

Colorbar Tru gloss in shade Radiant Pink. (Rs.495)

Lakme absolute lip gloss in shade Candy shine.(Rs.450)

I felt so good later that I bought 2 glosses with money less than one MAC gloss. 😀 Thank God I resisted myself at the MAC store.

I also got a newU nail paint(Rs.50) and the Palmolive thermal spa body wash(Rs.125), I’ve read so many people raving about this, I just had to try it.

And finally! Oh yes, I got the Forest Essentials lip balm(Rs.495). Because it’s got the most awesome packaging in the world! I won’t show you more pictures right now, wait for the review 😀

And let me tell you how the Forest Essentials people pack your shopping. They took a piece of butter paper, sprayed it with perfume, and wrapped this tiny lip balm box in that paper. Then put it in their FE paper bag and sprinkled flower petals in the bag. That bag smells so heavenly I can’t tell you 🙂 This was my first brush with the brand and I’m in love with Forest Essentials! Would definitely be going back for more stuff! 🙂

Price: INR 190 for 295ml.

Available at most general stores and online stores.

My experience:

How many you have quite some stuff at home which you bought only to redeem free shipping at online stores? Well, I do have quite a lot of stuff 😛 This body wash is one of them 😛

I have quite a good history with Olay body washes. My very first body wash was from Olay. I guess this was around 8 years back when my aunt got some Olay body washes for me from the US, at that time I don’t think we got them here in India. They were the Shea Butter Body Washes which she herself used and loved. That was my first body wash and I was hooked to using them after that. Never really went back to soaps after that. But once my stash was over and I didn’t find Olay body washes anywhere so I moved on to other brands like Lux. After so many years I am back to using Olay and loving it:)
