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!

1st Birthday Giveaway!!! :) – CLOSED


Hello everyone  I know I haven’t been able to post all day even though its BeautyfullJourney’s birthday today!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s all your love that made me reach this point today 🙂 I thank all my readers and I love you all!

This giveaway is just a small gesture to thank my lovely readers! 🙂

Let’s talk about the prize now 😛

The winner of this giveaway will be receiving 5 products–

1 The Body Shop Olive Body Butter.

1 Rimmel London Kate Moss Lipstick shade #22.

1 Colorbar iglide eyeliner shade Prunella.

1 Faces Go Chic lip gloss shade Raspberry.

1 OPI mini nail paint shade I’m not really a waitress!

I’ve bought all these products with my own money and all of them are brand new. The OPI nail paint – I received in a vellvette box a few months back and I assure you I’ve not used it even once. It’s brand new, the shade is lovely but just not a shade I would wear!

It’s a very assorted selection of products and there is a tiny reason behind why I chose each one 😛

Here are some rules and regulations for the giveaway –

1)     This giveaway is open for Indian residents only.

2)     There will be only one winner who will receive the above shown 5 products.

3)     The winner will be chosen by random.org.

4)     All details shared by you in the form below will be kept private and will not be disclosed to anyone and will be used only for the purpose of contacting you.

5)     I will check all entries myself and all invalid entries will be eliminated.

6)     Since a lot of you had a few problems with the Rafflecopter form last time, I have a simpler form for you all this time. I’m also explaining here about each entry.

7)     The giveaway is open till 21st July.

8)     I’ll announce the winner by 23rd July maximum and ship out the prize as soon as possible.

9)     The first 3 entries are compulsory. Rest all are optional. You can complete them for more entries. Each entry is worth 1 point. You can have minimum 3 points and maximum 10 points.

10)Concept of number of entries – if you complete only the first 3 compulsory entries, 3 entries under your name are completed in my record, and your name appears in the record 3 times. Likewise, the number of entries you do, the number of times your name comes in my list. So, when a winner is chosen randomly the probability of your name being chosen automatically increases according to your entries as if you did 7 entries your name is present 7 times and there are more chances of your name being chosen.
