Himalayas Intense Oil Clear Lemon Facewash (For Him) - A Review



I guess, getting married has its little perks to my blog as well! Now, I can also post reviews of men's products too!!! Lolz!!!
Well, to begin with, one my favourite brands, Himalaya Herbals!!! And here's my hubby's view of the Himalaya Herbals For Him Intense Oil Clear Lemon Facewash. Completely reserving my views here, so over to him, in his words....
Need not say anything about its smell, its Lemon and it smells awesome. The color and texture are neat! It feels great on the skin, doesn't dry the skin out and skin doesn't feel stretchy. Its indeed a bit irritating sometimes when foam or soap forms a coating atop the facial hair. But this doesn't. It doesn't foam too much but still skin feels perfectly clean after using this. 
But if I compare this with Himalaya Herbals Neem Facewash, I think I'm gonna vote for that. Still, will I buy this again? I think I will!!!

Fiama Di Wills Bathing Bar by Wendell Rodricks - A Review



I picked up this soap by chance. I was at the Wills Lifestyle Store to buy some shirts and the bill was less by some Rs.100 from the nearest thousand. I jokingly asked the sales guy if he has anything for Rs.100, coz I was kinda sure, in a Wills Lifestyle store even ties don't start at Rs.400. Without a flinch, he said, we have skin care & deos. Oh yeah, I had forgotten that... 
I looked into the soaps section and there was this gorgeous gel bathing bar that had an autograph of Wendell Rodricks on it. A huge fan of Wendell that I am, I just couldn't stop myself for adding that too to my basket. 
Its a gorgeous translucent soap. The soft yellow color shows some beautiful golden shimmer particles in it. Guess what it reminded me of??? If you're a physics student in school, you might have probably did some salt tests. If you had had lead nitrate, then you would have mixed it with potassium iodide to get a golden yellow sparkly gel... It was called Golden Spangles test. I so fondly remembered that, the instant I opened its packaging.
The smell was citrusy of Lemon grass. Again I remembered the citrusy aroma that was in the atmosphere of Lemon Tree hotel. Well, several memories were re-kindled by this soap! Lolz!!!
It was super smooth gel and the skin felt so awesome. Made me feel like I didn't need skin lotion or even a deo. That much refreshing this was. Totally worth that 75 bucks.
Yup, there are a couple of negatives too. The size. At 125gm it was huge. I couldn't properly hold it within my palm and I hate it when the soap slips out of my hand. Second, the packaging was not very good. If someone can pay Rs.75/- for a 125gm soap, they can pretty much pay Rs.5 or Rs.10 more for a decent packaging.
Anyways, overall I love it. If they reduce the size to 100 gm and sell it at probably 60 or 65 bucks, it would be perfect...

WEDDING IDEAS - A Customized Gift!



As I completed my Wedding Diaries series of posts, I got pretty many queries on certain aspects like saree draping, how to choose jewelry or makeup etc, MUA yes or no, etc. So I thought, why not come up with another series of posts about the tips, tricks and ideas of wedding, based on my personal experience. Well, the order in which I'm gonna write this series would random.
To begin with, customized gift. Nope, I'm not talking about what to gift as a wedding guest or as return gift. This was more like decor-ing our home after marriage and gifting to each other...... Something very special like the first gift to the beloved one...
You may have already seen my post on Arsenal tee, the team that's my hubby's fav. So I ordered that for him. From the same company, Hicustom that does customized stuff, I ordered this super cool travel coffee mug, soon after our wedding photos came in. 

I chose one of our couple pic and this super cute wordings that I found on the Hicustom site itself to be printed on both sides. The print quality was awesome. This product came in 2 colors - white and silver. I felt silver looked more classy. So I gave a silver gray jagged border for the photograph that became transparent on the print and the photograph had a jagged edging just as I wanted. You can see one edge of it on the top pic. Nope, you can't see the full pic...... :D

The product quality too was great. The heat of the liquid inside stayed hot a quite a few hours and warm for several hours. The lid was a typical twister lid, with a big and a small opening, typical like in Starbucks. The inner ring of the lid has rubber that helps in sealing the cap snugly, so heat won't escape. 
There is definitely something special when it comes to having customized products, isn't it???!!!!!!!!

P.S: The product was gifted by the company for reviewing purpose, however the opinions are of my own experience and are this post does not to advertise the product.

To the Office - Style 60



Many a times, when someone goes on a vacation, they get few souvenirs for close friends & relatives, mostly a tacky printed tee. In India this habit is a bit more extensive. Whenever someone gets married, the close circle of relatives are gifted with clothing, mostly saree or salwar kameez. That's awesome, but for fashionistas, its a bit dreadful......
Readymade clothing mostly won't fit. Sarees and salwar kameez may not even relate to your taste in clothing. Sometimes I've received silk, that I don't wear. Sometimes I've received polyester that's totally unsuitable for the climatic conditions I live in. And, come on, I wear sarees and salwar kameez only on occasions. And at those times, I wanna wear something that I totally love, not something that's not even my style, just coz someone gifted that to me and they expect me to wear it on some important occasion!!!! 
But thank God, I have some friends & relatives who understand my style sense and have taken effort to gift me clothing that I totally love!!!! One was this saree that an aunt gifted, it looks rich like silk, but its pure cotton. Another was this salwar that another aunt gifted. She got the same pattern in various colors for all her niece and I was lucky to get this sandal instead of pista green or peach!!!! Another was this kurti that my friend gifted, I love the hand embroidery and the unique printing technique on it called Devoré.
This time, I was more than lucky when my SIL, sent me this awesome Peplum tee and patterned trousers from Singapore, when my MIL visited her. The color, the matching of the top & trousers, the fit, everything was perfect and spot on to my taste.... I loved it so much that I had to share it here....

Top & Trousers: Patch (Received as Gift)
N*de patent wedges: Globus
Necklace: Romwe.com c/o Ocrun.com
Bangle: Handmade by artisans of Rajasthan
Earrings: Tanishq
Sunglasses: Arrow

While Exploring the Unexplored - Style 27



You saw my earlier post on my new awesome shoes and I had promised another post on my woodlands shoes. So, where did I wear it and with what outfit. Here it goes!
How's the location??? That's a amazing site called Gundupermbedu close to Chennai, which is a paleobotany site... Ya, I know that's a difficult terminology. Basically, Paleo means Stone Age and Botany as we all know is the study of Plants. This is an archaeologically, botanically important site with evidences of Stone Age Plants and their impressions are found in rocks! Read more about it here on my Travel Blog
 Top: Thrifted from a Flea Market in Chennai
Jean: Flying Machine
Shoes: Woodland c/o MySmartPrice.com
Sunglasses: Arrow

Most definitely, these shoes are awesome esp., when walking on cut pieces of rocks & stones with sharp edges.  The sole is made of Thermo Plastic Rubber, that withstands corrosion very well. I love the camel color and the placement of the Woodland Tree logo is so cute. Its perfect!!! I love it!!!!!
