Bag Haul from FOREVER NEW...

My Birthday week has never been so excited...

After all my surprise gifts from the PP, it seems one of my loved brand has decided to gift me something very special.

Well I am talking about the Forever New Sale where the whole store was on 50% sale on accessories and 40% on clothing & shoes.

We have recently got a Forever New store opened in our office premises in DLF Galleria.

One of my colleagues, informed me about the Sale. That day I was not on heavy work load so thought of giving it a visit keeping in mind that I will only buy one bag and that too for office and meetings purposes.

When I went to the store, I found the store to be swamped with ladies (quite obvious during sale periods)

I spent 45 mins picking up bags and looking into the mirror which one suits me the best. And eventually I liked one bag which was actually being bought by my same colleague who told me about the sale :P ( then & there I texted her "sorry But I could not resist taking that bag hahaha)

The actual joy of surprise came to me when the item was billed. From 3600 INR to 1795 only. Now that is what a girl loves about the sale and that is what a great deal is.

Last month I saw the same bag but 3800 seemed quite a bit at that time. (God is always looking after my desires it seems :D)

Well I was content after getting the bag , when in the evening some more colleagues decided to go again. And  quite obvious I could not resist myself going there.

This time I was helping my colleague picking up a bag, when this animal printed bag came to my notice, which I saw during my visit but I ignored as I was looking for a bigger bag.

You can Buy bags from HERE

I was so mesmerized by the prints that I could not resist myself picking up that bag too and the price is a steal INR 3400 discounted to  INR 1700 only.

Whooo the year is ending on a good note for me it seems with lots of gifts, nice bags, clothes and I hope more to come before the year ends  :D

Do you all like the bag haul? Let me Know..

My Birthday Gifts ....

Hi Girls!

I am so excited to show you what all I got this year on my birthday!

The gifts are being chosen so thoughtfully that I could not stop smiling. Every time I take the gifts out from the wardrobe and keep fidgeting with it.

Thanks to the PP who conceived all the gift ideas so apt for me as now I am into beauty blogging.

Apart from all the cakes and everything, The PP got me stuffs that have so grabbed my attention that I can't stop thanking him :D

To start with , he got me three fashion junkie hippie neck-pieces from his recent trip to Goa. Well , technically I told him to bring those :P, but the choice was absolutely his  and I am just loving these  :D

Then in the evening he brought out an envelope from his bag and handed over to me. It looked to me like a movie ticket or some adventure sports voucher. But when I opened it I jumped out of extreme Joy...A BodyShop Voucher....I mean that is just wow....Darling you have started to know what I am loving these days. PP told me "Dear I thought and thought but could not figure out which lipstick to buy for you. The safest option I got was to give you a gift voucher. Apne pasand ka shade le lena"...awww that is so smart and thoughtful  :D

And the next two gifts were just so apt for the summers of 2014..The Tribal printed waist coat ... I have figured out how to wear..probably on top of a nice white kurta and the green dress is just fabulous...Hats off to the PP for his choice of color and design..  (maska marke khe khe khe )

I quickly wore the dress for my birthday outing :D

And the very last gift which actually had blown my mind was saved for the last by the PP...I thought he was proposing for marriage with a ring (ha ha ha ha), which actually turned out be Swarovski Emerald earrings and pendant set  (now thats something which any girl would love <3)

Hope you all liked my little birthday presents

Pomegranate & grapes Face Wash INR 105/-

Henna Oil INR 235/-

Foot Care Cream INR 95/-

L'oreal shampoo INR 69/- and Conditioner INR 135/-

 Will review each of these products soon..Very soon...By the way it is birthday time...Hopefully my next HAUL post will include more of makeup..lippies..blushes, shadows and foundation..yupieeee!!



Eyebrows!! The most expressive and one of the sexiest facial features of all the lovely ladies and same goes for men as well. But ladies...going for eyebrow shaping and trimming every month is a pain!! For me it literally brings tears and all thanks to my extra thick hairs. But on a positive note, nicely shaped eyebrows of a lady can actually grab eyeballs of both men and women. Aren't we all envious of sexy siren Deepika aka Leela's thick long arched eyebrows??  I am personally a huge fan of thick busy ones. But alas! all the beauty parlors I visited disappointed me as they either change the shape or make them thin. Errhh.... So after all these years of struggle I got something which says "Your wish is my command" and its good name is Remington's Smooth & Silky Detail Trimmer. It caught my eyes which checking stuffs on Fashion&

About the product

Remington is a US based worldwide personal care corporation which manufactures razors, epilators and haircare products for both men and women since 1937. This trimmer removes stray hairs from eyebrows and other small areas like nose, face, ears. But in my opinion, it works best for eyebrows and facial hair removal. It gives the impression of a pen which comes with this cute cap and it has this zero figure  as well. We Indians love that extra panipuri which the panipuriwala gives us for freeee. Yes, your hunger pangs for free items will satiate by seeing this Varta Alkaline battery  along with the trimmer. But you will be a lil confused at first as to where you will have to insert this and to add to your worries, the manual carries no images with the  instructions for the battery set up. 

I am successful in discovering it.. Just follow these steps
First grip the lower end of the trimmer and pull it downwards. It will open exactly the way you open the cap of a pen.
Next, put the battery in this given place
Now, close it with a slight pressure from  bottom just to assure it makes a slight sound and it is closed properly.

There is this small key with On inscribed on top which when pushed up gets ready for use and it makes  a continuous humming sound which means its saying' Ma'am your order please" .

Now, if you want to shape and trim your eyebrows which I did, just select which eyebrow to go first and pull the skin on top of  that part with one hand and hold the trimmer with the other slightly inclined say at 45 degree angle and start pressing gently to the direction opposite to the point of the hairs. Refer to the picture below:


This works fantastically! This removes all your unwanted hairs with ease and without that ouch!!! Also, there is this eyebrow comb with two length options to change the shape of your eyebrows. The user manual tells you how. But as I wanted to keep my bushy ones intact, I put the comb to rest for lifetime. This baby brush helps you to wipe off those discarded hairs and there is no need to use hands or towel. 

In short, I must say I am not only impressed with the look of the product but also with the A one service it provides. I was so happy that I couldn't stop myself but to use it on my mother's eyebrows too ,who though being a typical ma who says Why-waste-money, was happy I got it and prayed that it lasts longgggg..


I was happy to shell out INR 899  for my fake pen


1. Stylish sleak look
2. Effective
3. Works as per your wish
4. It rubbishes the saying "No pain no gain". There is actually 100% gain with zero pain, cuts or scratches
5. Feather weight and easy to use
6. If all the above points haven’t yet convinced you then there is 2 years of guarantee will definitely can’t restrict you than to grab it


Its just that the manual doesn't contain pictures along with the instructions of usage which makes it a lil problem and creates confusion at the first go.

My Verdict
I Couldn't have been more happier as it has solved a big problem of mine and I'm sure,  all you ladies out there will definitely want to keep a sexy sleak beautician right in your pursues who will keep that very beautiful feature of your always shaped, trimmed and attractive
Deeps and Piggy Chops, we aren't very far away....

LASS Naturals Peach & Apricot Shea Butter Lip Balm

Heyya Girls!!

Worried about chapped lips this season? Does your lips losing its natural color?
I have a great solution to your problem then.

Actually I myself was not convinced at first but after seeing the result on me, I can surely vouch for this product.

I am talking about Lass Naturals' Lip Balm - Peach & Apricot.

I came to know about this product from one of the beauty blogs I was going through few months back. It was summer then. I thought lets give it a try as my Maybelline Baby lips was almost on the verge of getting over.

I went online to order the lip balm. I found out that it comes in three variants - peach & apricot, honey & chocolate  and pomegranate & grapes. The name peach attracted me, and I just bought it :D

I had never heard of the brand before, so wanted to see whether the claims of the company - to be herbal, and natural is true or not. I must Say I am not disappointed.

- Lass Peach & Apricot Lip Balm is a natural treatment for healing and protecting dry, chapped lips, and for bringing out and enhancing their natural color of lips.
- Does NOT contain Petroleum Jelly.


All these were too true to believe. Also the price of the product seems too unbelievable against all these advantages.


Only Rs 65 for 8 gms/ 0.28 oz

My Experience

My online order came 4 days later. Though I was expecting it within 2 days as I was too impatient. :P
Yes, they do not have any store countrywide. They only sell Online through their company website portal.
You can procure it  at

The balm comes inside a monocarton. It is small round "dibbi" or a tub  with a screw cap. The Peach & Apricot is a sweet pink color balm which after application becomes transparent on the lips. No pungent smell at all. So all sensitive noses can relax. :D

One can use it as many a times as one wants. But I prefer using it in the night before going off to sleep as it is at that time when it heals the lips efficiently.

The balm is not heavy on your lips and you cannot feel that you have applied something. When I get up the next morning , my lips literally feels soft and supple and also pinkinsh (yuhuuuu)

And to get best result out of it I scrub my lips every second day. My lips are gradually regaining its natural color (Kudos Team Lass! You were true )

I have used it for 4 months at a stretch and have then come to this conclusion. Also, after so many days my lip balm is still not over and  I have already ordered another lip balm from the other variants :P

I use it not only in winters but on summers, rains always.. I will just advice you all to get the best result use it anytime, everyday of the year. And you will not regret..its my promise.


1. Does what it claims
2. No chemicals
3. No Smell
4. Locks moisture
5. Bring back natural color of the lips
6. Affordable and not at all pricey


1. Availability. No physical store. Order through their website only.
2. Only 3 variants available. I wanted some more ( :D)
3. It comes in a small tub, which at times becomes unhygienic and also have to use fingers to take out the balm and apply.


Ofcourse 4.5 /5 ( .5 dedecuted for tub packaging)

Re purchase

Have already done that. I am going to use it for life long  I guess

Which lip balm do you use? have you ever tried Lass? Do let me know

Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Body Moisturizer - Dry Skin

Hi Roses!

The winter has set in!! It is slowly and steadily engulfing Delhi/ NCR. And "beheno" that day is near when we are going to experience that dreadful, that spine chilling  "Dilli ki Sardi" :P . But honestly I just love winters.

So when there is winter, then there has to have a situation when we girls need to take special care of our skin, of our body. It is that time of the year when all the cracked heels, dry skin, cracked skin, flaky skin re-surfaces. Huh!

Before the crisis had set in, I suddenly chanced upon a miracle moisturizer in one of the Dabur New U store. Although I went to the store to check out some lippies, but I came back with this, also my old moisturizer was over. It was a Neutrogena Body Moisturizer..

Well frankly speaking I had never used any Neutrogena products, as I was not confident about the type of chemicals they use in their products. But this product did not disappoint me and now I am certainly going to check out more from the brand. Although the BA kept pushing for the products (I do not like pushy SA/BA. They irritate me), I was quite reluctant at first. I asked her it is for dry skin, and I have combination skin. Then I realized, winter makes our skin dry, lets try out.

Product Description

Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Body Moisturizer hydrates skin with exceptional moisture levels that lasts all day. The non-greasy, glycerin-rich formula deeply penetrates, instantly turning even the driest, roughest skin into soft, smooth skin.

  • Instantly soothes skin
  • Relieves, dry rough skin
  • Provides 24 Hr of moisturization


Although the price of the product is Rs 399, I got it at Rs 35 discount. Yayyy!


This product contains no harmful chemicals that I am sure.

My Take on the product

It claims to have Norwegian formula, which helps retaining moisture in the skin. Norway is a cold country and people there use some kind of therapy and things to keep themselves moisturize. This product claims to have incorporated that formula in the product. And yes the product did not disappoint me. I am not quite sure about how this product would work in s
ummers for girls who has my skin type, but in winters it is a boon.

It keeps my skin really soft for so long. Before I head to office I apply it and it keeps my skin supple throughout the day and still after I come back home. Even at night when I re-apply it, it makes my skin like silk. Trust me it does.

It has a lovely floral smell which is very mild and which goes off once you start applying. It is not at all greasy and a little amount of the product covers lots of body portion.


  • Does what it claims
  • keeps my skin soft silky
  • does not allow my skin to show up with cracks and flakes
  • pretty decent price compared to the wonders it does
  • No harmful chemicals as such
  • No pungent smell

  • Nothing I could think of



Yes ofcourse. And I will love to try out other products as well from the brand.

Let me know, what are your lotions and creams for the season 

Maybelline Color Show Nail Paint - Shocking Seas

Hello ladies!!

I am back!!

I went hibernating for few days as I was sooo decked up with work that I could hardly make out time for my love- my blog!!  :-(

well that should not be an excuse to ignore my love..I know..I had figured out how to carry on with my love, so here I am, all re-structured and with revamped energy..and soon you will be seeing some changes in the blog.

That is it on my "Pareshani" part. Back to my love please  :D

As we all know that Maybelline has made the impossible POSSIBLE. the whole blogging world is raving about the it and every one else. Maybelline New York has launched their international range of nail paints in India COLOR SHOW. And the best part it it contains 40 odd shades to choose from. Can you imagine it? It is just woowwwwwwwww!!  I personally have fallen in love with the shades. And have already bought 6 nail paints in one go. And I have full confident on myself that I am going to buy more soon.


Yes this is the part which I am just dying to tell everybody. Each of the paints is priced at only Rs 75/-
Double Wowwwwwwwwww!!

My experience

Today the shade I have chosen is Shocking Seas. It is a fact that Maybelline does have some great color palette which are to die for. This Nail paint is just perfect and I do not know whether people will believe or not but after application my nails look like as if I have put on an indigo sky on my nails. So you can imagine ladies that how next to perfection it is and it definitely justifies the shade name.

The color does not chip off from my nails for 5 days at a stretch. Not sure though how long it it stays on other's nails. Also, I need 3 coats to get full coverage and the desired finish. Other wise it is a greattt greatt greatt product. I will come up with more new shades of the palette soon.

And yes ofcourse I will definitely ask all you ladies to use a base coat when applying any nail lacquer or else your nails will turn yellow..Yellow Yellow Dirty Fellow!!  :P


1. 40 different shades to die for
2. Great affordable price
3. Does Not chip off


1. Need 3-4 coats for full coverage (That is it  :D)



Will I re-buy?

Of course. I already bought 6 of them. Looking forward to buy all 40 soon  :D

Do tell me what is your shade pick from the color show range

Biotique Bio Pineapple Fresh Foaming Cleansing Gel

Hi Pretty ladies!

Today I am here to review a miracle face wash which does not rip off the moisture from the face...And yes that is true...I know best of the best face cleansers that claim to be non-drying, but I found none to be true...At last I found one.

The Biotique Bio Pineapple Fresh Foaming Cleansing Gel. And it claims to be for the Normal to Oily skin beauties!

I have pretty oily skin so much so that when I wake up my T-zone is completely oily. I wont say that this cleanser has reduced that phenomena of mine but it definitely keeps my face fresh and hydrated without being oily.

Product Description

This fresh - foaming, 100% soap-free cleansing gel is blended with the extracts of pineapple, neem leaves, euphorbia plant and clove oil to dissolve makeup, purge pores and purify the complexion.


INR 149 for 120 ML


All herbal You see......


It is a cute pale yellow color plastic bottle with the green color screw cap. The liquid inside the bottle is yellow too. Quite handy.


when I first opened the pack, I tried smelling it. It certainly smells of pineapple but the fragnance is very very mild and does not stay for long. Once you apply it, you can not even smell the pineapple. Well that should not bother anyone I guess!

The liquid is thick yellow and is not runny. It looks like a textured hair conditioner..hahahah!!

A little amount on the palm works for me and lathers great within that small amount. I am sure it is my first such face wash that will lasts the longest  :D

As mentioned earlier, the USP of this face wash is, it does not rip off my skin of moisture. I can touch and feel my skin not being dry at all. And I can vouch that all we ladies do experience certain kind of dryness after face wash, irrespective of which ever brand we use. But the bio pineapple one is just one miracle. Till date I have never felt a slight stretch of skin or dryness after use.

It keeps my skin fresh. But yes I am not sure about the complexion part as claimed by the product. I have not seen any improvement in my complexion.

All in All a great cleanser ... (I am not worried about the complexion claim).



1. Mild smell
2. Sturdy
3. Can fit into a bag, can carry it anywhere
4. Not pricey at all
5. Total herbal
6. Soap-free
7. Does not rip off the moisture
8. Small amount is enough for cleansing


1. Does not stand true to its claim of complexion improvement (I am not bothered about that)
2. The pineapple fragnance does not linger for long  :(




Of course I will...but once I finish off my current bottle :D

Did Any of tried this yet? Do comment
