Hot cocoa & cream

I love love love candles and have around 5-6 around my apartment at any given time. I explore a lot with different scents, but I never buy food or any gourmand kindof scents. I never even try them because I always find them too sweet or fake artificial kindof sugary sweet. But I tried this on a whim and oh my god I am absolutely in love with it. It might be the first candle I repurchase! It’s also perfect for winter time, it makes me feel so cozy and warm like a steaming mug of hot chocolate in my hand. Oh and did I mention the mug is topped with mini marshmallows and melted chocolate bits. Ah bliss!

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 🙂

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 #7.

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 😀

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!
