My Sweet On Paris Obsession!

DSC03920cp

I first got a whiff of “Sweet on Paris” at a friend’s place last year. I nagged my friend to show me what fragrance she uses and that’s when I met this gorgeous fragrance mist in the flavor Sweet On Paris by Bath & Body Works.

My bad luck that BBW had launched this fragrance as a Limited Edition collection and now it was no more in the stores! *sob sob* I was so heart broken!

I have a crazy OCD that Limited Edition products attract me a 100 times more than normal stuff and I get a strong urge to own them, the same had happened with me with MAC dark diversion but I still don’t own it  😦

Five Friday Favorites #6

DSC0389821

Hey everyone!

As you all know by now, I’m at my home in India right now for vacations. Ofcourse I haven’t got all my bath, body and makeup stuff.

So the products I’ve been using are either ones I’ve bought here or the ones I had left at home or what I’ve got for my sister from the US or the ones my sister bought when I wasn’t here. And my favorites too are from those products!

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!

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 😀

REVIEW: Original source vanilla milk and raspberry shower gel

According to Original Source ’s website,
When we want to be, we can be a patient bunch here at Original Source. For this little treat we were really put to the test. We waited 82 British Sunrises for the raspberries to become lovely and ripe before squeezing them with Vanilla Milk for this beautifully moisturizing shower cream. Made with 100% natural fragrances, this little pink bottle of joy smells just divine, give it a sniff, you’ve got to agree! Smother yourself in this cream to smooth your rough bits.

My first Vellvette box!!!!!

Oh My God !! I’m so excited while writing this J not just because it’s my first box, but because I’m quite satisfied with my goodies J
One of these was actually on my wishlist since some time !! seriously !!
For those who aren’t aware of Vellvette or rather beauty boxes in general, this is a monthly subscription or you can also take it for 3/6/12 months. In this subscription you pay INR399 per month and you get a box with 3 sample size products of high end brands. You are required to fill a preference form for products and then your box is sent to you and one of the really good (or bad? ) aspects is that your products are a complete surprise for you until you open the box. J

I had placed my order on sept 29 and have received it today J via aramex.

So here are the pics… Enjoy J

 

The packaging is super girly. A black sturdy box with a pink ribbon.

On opening I found a letter addressed to me mentioning the products inside. When I first opened the box I did not read the letter because I wanted to see the products first before reading about them. Lol. Such an impatient girl I am.
Then they have also given me discount coupons if I wish to buy the full size products of these samples from their website J also, details about each product are enclosed.
 

L’Occitane shea butter shampoo

 
Firstly I would like to tell you that l’occitane is one brand, I’ve been dreaming to try. But I’ve always found it too expensive so now I can  J
The body shop strawberry shower gel
 
 
 
And this is something I seriously had on wish list… TBS strawberry shower gel. I had loved the fragrance last time I visited TBS.
Clinique 7 day scrub cream.

Jesus del pozo Halloween kiss 

This was a bonus product. The box is supposed to have 3 samples otherwise. This has a lovely fragrance 🙂

 
I would also like to mention that their customer service is excellent. I sent a message to on their website’s contact form ONLY because I was getting impatient waiting just after 2 days of placing my order and they promptly replied to me telling that the box on its way J
The only problem I have with my box is the lack of any makeup product but then I guess I should have mentioned that in my preferences. I had focused a lot on hair care since right now my hair are in a really bad condition 😦
I don’t know if they have an option to change preferences, but I really hope they do have it because I would love to get some makeup stuff too next time J
But overall I’m loving my box and would definitely try it again J
I’ll review these products soon J

You can order your box HERE.
Also, if anyone has any doubts if the box is actually worth it, I would like to tell them yes it’s definitely worth it!
I’m showing you the prices of the full size products.
