Feeling T-shirty :)

Its hot!!
One of those times, when I'd want to sit at home, put on the A.C., wear my comfy cottons and hog on watermelons... But I am in office, sitting and working.. but thankfully its Friday!!
I am feeling T-shirty :)
Here are the three cute T-shirts I bought from bewakoof.com..
In bright tangerine and red colors and with awesome prints!! Happy Summers!!

My April 2015 Fabbag

Woohooo!! 3 fab bag reviews one after the other..
But then this is the last bag for this quarterly subscription I had applied for... need to subscribe again! Cannot the bag just magically be given to me every month without me having to pay for it :P
Here is my April fabbag -

The bag has a beautiful zebra print and has been tagged as the “Nine to 9 Fab bag”. I like the bag, it looks sturdy and is spacious. Better than the Feb and March fab bags.Here are the products I received:
1.       Sample pieces of Malavara Lime Vetiver Shower gel and Body Lotion 60 ml each priced at 300/- for the gel and 390/- for the lotion
The gel and lotion are too good. The lemony lime smell is mesmerizing and stays for a long long time. I loved the light weight gel and have included it in my comfort bath time. The lotion is nice and keeps the skin hydrated. The smell just keeps me craving for more. When I got the bag, the shower gel had leaked out, so the bag smells all lemony now. The fab magazine and the coupons which came along were all wet and sticky. I had to actually wash all the products… The fab bag crew said they’d replace my shower gel, let’s see how that works! This is product I wouldn’t mind buying for myself given the luxury feel it leaves behind!

2.       Denman Volumizing Hair Brush priced at 475/-
This is a wide tooth brush and does leave the hair feel volumized. I have been planning to buy a hair brush which can easily come in my hand bag as well as my clutch.. This is one such brush, it has a compact handle, smaller than the other brushes I have…

3.       City Color Blush Quad Pink priced at 500/-
I am in love with blushes and with City Color. I got my first cheek stain from City Color in one of the fab bags and the cheek color it gives is perfect. I am more than happy to see the pink shade I got, just look at the color palette… every color is a must have!!

4.       Iraya Manjistha Eye Contour Gel
It is an easy to use, nutrient-rich eye care gel. With the extracts of manjishta and lavender essential oil, it helps cool the eye area, reduce puffiness and swelling, and minimize dark circles and fine lines. Regular use protects and brightens the eye area. I have dark circles and was planning to buy an eye contour gel, I didn’t have too… I have been using it since I got my fab bag and waiting for the dark circles to lighten!



All in all , this is nice bag. Good looking, good smelling, luxurious products!!  

My March 2015 Fabbag


You know this thing about fabbag –
Till you don’t get it, you wait for it!
Once you get it, happinesss!!
Use the product and the happiness multiplies!!
And what better than to share the happiness J

The March fabbag products are fab! Have a sneak peek here


The bag has been tagged as #MakeupForDifference and it does full justice to the tag! Here are the products I received:
1.  Soul Tree Pure Black Kohl – Full size priced at 350/-
The Soul Tree Kohl range is totally herbal, smells good and is available in different colors – black, grey, blue, maroon, green to name a few. I wanted to experiment with the colors and was expecting anything else but black.. but I got black. That said, one application was enough for me to know it is good. It has ghee, natural oils and the color is perfect! It stays on and actually makes my eyes feel cool on application. It is a part of my handbag now and I use it everyday!

2. Palladio Herbal Lipstick –Flame – Full sized priced at 650/-
This lipstick is good.. First it is herbal, second the color is nice and third it smells good and stays on!! And is a part of my hand bag for daily use!


3.  Inveda BB Cream Fair Color – 15ml tube priced at 140/-
This is a small carry tube and is enriched with Almond& Magnolia. Thankfully my skin is blemish free but this does make it look pretty perfect. It doesn’t dry the skin and has SPF 20.  Got the fair shade which blends in perfectly! Must have in my hand bag!

4.  Biobloom hair conditioner – Orange Cinnamon – 30ml sample [200ml is priced at 699/-]
Haven’t used this hair conditioner yet, but it does smell good. It comes with the goodness of cinnamon & orange essential oils which are known to restore strength, add luster and fight frizzy hair!

5. A very very cute pair of Fashionography earrings priced at 249/-
Happiness comes in small packages, doesn’t it and this is one such package.. Look at earrings – Do I have to say more? Aren’t they pretty J


The products are good! This is one bag from where all the products [except the conditioner] I have been using daily and I am happy J
I didn’t like the bag though! Neither the color nor the writing over interests me, but given that it is lying in my dressing table and holding my huge nail paint collection, I have no complaints!!

My February 2015 Fabbag!!


If you read my blog, you'd know how much I am in love with the fabbag! Fabbag is a monthly cosmetic bag service which has 3 deluxe cosmetics & beauty products from top global brands plus expert tips-n-tricks that help get the most out of every product and it's perfect! As much as I wait for a new month to get my salary, I look forward to my fabbag for the month the same! I had a quarterly subscription and I almost lusted for each product in the bag, not to mention used everything too! And so I requested hubby to gift me another quarterly subscription and he did!! [Yes he did, without asking or complaining... Guess he enjoyed how happily I spent the day I got my fabbag for the three months.. the dance of glee I did :P] So, here it is... the review of my February Fabbag!!

Curtains roll up.. presenting the Valentine theme heart shaped Feb Fab Bag -




The bag is good to look at but not the kinds I will carry in my hand.. I did not really like the finishing.. but then to each her own.. and when the bag came with so many goodies, I can happily ignore that minor glitch! Here are the products I received -

  1.     LA Splash Lip Couture Liquid Lipstick - Poison Apple

This is a full sized product and comes in an awesome reddish maroon shade, the darkest color I have till date and worth the wear! It stays on and on till you actually use your make up remover to cleanse it. Rich,long lasting, kiss proof ,smudge proof... but it does dry the lips so moisturize and apply is the mantra! Also it has this slight metallic smell which I don't like on my lips.

2.     Sally Hansen Maximum Growth Plus Nail Color - Practical Plum
Full size product again priced at a whooping 575/-  I am not really fond of the light plum color but what is remarkable is, it stays.. for more than a fortnight on a stretch and has this magenta shine which looks good.. but nothing beyond normal.. Gotta say I like my reds and maroons and pinks more!!

3.     Kama Ayurveda Mridul Face Cleanser and Night Cream
These are teeny tiny sample pieces, perfect for five to ten usages! 
The face cleanser is a combination of herbs, cereals and pulses that gently cleanses and exfoliates facial skin. It is a powder which I mix with rose water and then gently use as a scrub, leaves the skin feeling softer instantly! I am definitely buying this product! The night cream is too small to comment on. I used it for around 8 nights but cannot comment on the results on my skin so soon… so don’t really know!

4.     Avene D-Pigment Cream
Got this D-pigment cream as a sample piece and haven’t used it yet. It is a light formula to correct dark spots and brighten the skin tone. Also, the clinical results say 4 weeks of application does lessen dark spots.. but then I guess I’ll have to buy a larger size for it to last that long!

So all in all, it was a good bag, made me happy as always…
Afterall, what more does a girl want ! A dark lip, a nail color and some awesome face wash! Enough to bring that smile on my face J

Ajnabi ajnabi...

Humsafar banke hum saath saath hai aaj bhi..
Fir bhi hai ye safar ajnabi ajnabi
Rah bhi ajnabee, mod bhi ajnabee..
Jayenge hum kidhar ajnabi ajnabi!

Jindagi ho gyi hai sulagta safar,
Dur tak aa rha hai dhuan sa nazar,
Jaane kis mod pe kho gyi har khushi,
Deke dard-e-jigar ajnabi ajnabi

Humne chun chun ke tinke
Banaya tha jo
Aashiyaan hasraton se
Sajaya tha jo
Hai chaman me wohi aashiyaan aaj bhi
Lag rha hai magar ajnabi ajnabi

Kisko maloom tha
Din ye bhi aayenge
Mausamon ki tarah
Dil badal jayenge
Din hua ajnabi, raat bhi ajnabi
Har ghadi, har pahar ajnabi ajnabi

Not been a single time Jagjit Singh doesn't touch the strands of my heart and cause that tear deep in the heart away from the eyes of the world flow...
