Products Of The Week: The Body Shop Strawberry Range

A couple weeks ago:
Me: "I want strawberries."

Family: "Oh, they're not in season right now. Why, you're craving them?"

Me: "Yes.", I lied.

I wasn't craving them, I wanted to click pictures of them along with these Strawberry goodies from The Body Shop. Yeah, I'd eat them afterwards - sprinkled with powdered sugar....mmm - but they'd have to pose for pictures first ;p


Current Beauty Favorites

Hi! If you're not following me on Instagram or my personal Facebook Page, it may seem I've been gone from the blog for a long time, and you don't know the happy news yet. Which is, we have found an apartment & we are moving in probably next week. I'm super excited, because I can't wait for life to start....and have all my things set up properly. That white fluffy things is a new rug for my dressing room.
Now let's talk favorites! Starting from the tall ones back there:
Palmolive Thermal Spa Mineral Massage Body Wash, Rs.135 ~ With thermal salts & white clay. This has got to be of my most favorite body washes. I've gone through 2 bottles since I got back to India. I just love that it smells like a holiday by the beach.
Vaseline Healthy White Complete 10 Lightening & Anti-Aging Body Lotion, Rs.175 ~ I went through many bottle of the original Healthy White Body Lotion, mainly coz I liked the smell so much. This one is a slightly more moisturizing version with anti-aging benefits, but smells the same.
Pond's Dreamflower Talcum Powder, Rs.49 ~ I previously used the purple one, which lasted forever! I decided to try this pink one, and it smells lovely, although I like the fragrance of the purple one a little bit more.
MAC Brush Cleanser, Rs.650 ~ A brush cleanser is a must-have. I was using one by Stage Cosmetics (Malaysian brand), which lasted for a long long time! There was still some left in the bottle when I discarded it in Scotland. I had to turn to MAC when I got back, because again, there's not many available here in India. It works well & cleans even the dirtiest brush in a jiffy.


Honey Bees Buzz Soap & My Chocolate Indulgence Lip Balm By Nourish

I hauled some Nourish products last week. I have passed by the kiosk before, but I never had the time to stop and look at the colorful soaps closely. Nourish sells handmade soaps, scrubs, body butters, lip balms etc. 

Here's what I bought:

Honey Bees Buzz Body Bar: How cute is that?! Bees I don't mind touching and smelling lol. This soap smells so good! I used it and it's pretty good. Doesn't dry out my skin like some soaps, and it lathers up real nice.

Ins & Outs This Month

I thought I'd let you in on some of my Ins & Outs of the first month of the new year. I kinda liked doing this post. It was like getting to know myself again and almost like organizing my mind, in a way. Towards the end of last year, I was a little bit lost and confused, coz there was too much stuff going on...
Anyways, getting back to topic...


  • Shower creams- It's time to ditch the shower gels and reach for creamy body washes. I'm eyeing the TBS Coconut & Shea Shower Creams, and Dove Cream Oil Body washes. I want them all!
  • Red! Red lips, red dress, red coat.  I didn't sport any red during December at all, so I thought I'd start now. I also haven't worn red clothing in a really long time! It used to be my favorite color. I got a military style coat from Forever 21 recently. As for red lipsticks, I like- MAC Venomous Villains lipstick Heartless, Make up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense in Moulin Rouge, Revlon Colorburst True Red, Maybelline Color Sensational Fatal Red.
  • Military-style coats/jackets. Red, white, an bright colored ones are my favorites. Forever 21 sells some at affordable prices.
  • Dotted Stockings. These are quite hard to find in Delhi right now, but I managed to find a similar pair  (will show you)


  • Painted toenails. I decided not to paint my toe nails all winter, coz I wear socks all the time. I'll let them breathe till....well, when I wear open toed shoes again
  • Gold makeup- eyeshadows, nail polishes, lipsticks etc. I was tired of seeing gold right from Diwali till the end of last year, so I won't be wearing anything gold until the next festive season, unless I really need to (maybe not even then!)
  • Liquid Foundation. I haven't been using my liquid foundations these days, coz I prefer creamy ones in winter. Bye bye Revlon Colorstay Foundation for now. 
  • Procrastination. It eats you up & fills you with guilt. Why wait for later when you can do it right now? Just do it (tick!)
Well, those are some of my Ins & Outs. What are yours?

July Favorites ~ Featuring Colorbar, MAC, NYX, Marc Jacobs, Body Shop etc

I am loving so many things right now. These are just a few of my favorite things. Must-have products and worth every penny!

Marc Jacobs Daisy (RM.213.00)
Marc Jacobs Daisy is THE perfume for the girly girl. I just couldn't leave it behind when I left Delhi. If you tend to get motion sickness while travelling and strong perfumes make you feel nauseous, this is the one for you coz the fragrance is so soft & subtle. Plus the bottle design is beyond cuteness, would you really care how it smells? ;)


Intoxicate Him With Lux Wine & Roses Shower Gel =)

Valentine's Day in a Bottle

Lux Wine & Roses combines Bordeaux Grape Extracts and Wild Rose Essence. It leaves your skin  looking radiant and pampered with a velvety soft feel. It is pH-neutral to skin and dermatologically tested.

Loving it, loving it, loving it! Smells like Red Wine mixed with Roses mixed with Wild Berries.

Go buy it NOW!

*Don't know how much this costs because it was a birthday gift.

Men Central ~ Fiama Di Wills Aqua Pulse Shower Gel With A Free Swiss Army Knife

Image Source

Starting today, I thought I'd write about products for men which I think are worth a mention.
There'll be a separate section in this blog called "Men/Male Vanity Central" (or something like that =D haven't given it much thought.)

The first one is the new Fiama Di Wills Aqua Pulse Shower Gel For Men. I was very impressed with this one. It costs only Rs.120 and the free Swiss Army Knife looks almost as good as a Victorinox

Sea Minerals & Blue Lotus
The shower gel is quite nice. Smells very fresh, almost like hair gel.


Olay Creme Ribbons Body Wash (Rs.179.00)

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if you slather yummy ice-cream on your body? Well, now there's an alternative to that without tempting the flies. Olay Body Wash Plus feels so creamy and smells so good it can be a non-fattening substitute for the sweet tooths who want to shed the extra kilos.
'Helps you move moisture where you need it' is the tag line which is true because its creamy texture really moisturizes the skin. There are different types like Creme Ribbons with almond oil (pink), Lotion Ribbons with aloe extract (aqua), Body Butter Ribbons(purple), Spa Exfoliating Ribbons(blue), Tone Enriching Ribbons(gold.) I'm using the first two at the moment and they're both great.
If you have very dry skin or you're just one of those who care less about applying lotion after bathing or are always in a rush, this is the body wash for you.
