My Review of The Bath & Body Works Black Amethyst Fine Fragrance Mist:

Okay you give me this and it makes me wild. LOL
Very very few scents give me that oooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh feeling.
I am very nosy when it comes to the choice of my scents, some are too fruits and some just simply are very artificial.
The thing with bath and body fragrances be it in the lotion, CANDLES, perfumes or mist is they keep it natural. Somehow there is less artificalness in their fragrances if you know what I mean. The price for which it comes is so fair.

This is rightly voted the best fragrance bath and body works has ever made.
For me I first got lotion from this range as a present from one of my friends when she came from America. I had asked only for sweat pea stuff but she got me some of this and warm vanilla sugar stuff as well. Which both I adore but this is something which got me hooked on to it.
The smell defines me. Wild, intoxicating with a hint of fruitiness to it. Not sexy in too much amount and not girl like sweet. It is just gorgeous.
Now when another friend was coming from us, I ordered a whopping lot of their fragrances again. 5 of them.lol

I'll review them one by one but this was the only bottle which I got in the largest size available.
You can see by the looks of it how adorable the bottle is. Easy , environment friendly plastic bottle.
Now when I read it on their website to review for you guys, I see that the scent has been discontinued.....naheeeeeeeee ye nahe ho sakta. If they want to discontinue this scent they might even shut bath and body works. Huh. Murphys law I guess.
This is one scent I wear with confidence and wear all the time. Day or night this is it.
It.s a fragrance for the masses. Sexy and mysterious.
It is not so out there but something that grows on you,

Does it smell like Tom Ford Black Orchid? Yes, a little.
Does it smell like Chanel Coco Mademoiselle? Yes, a little.
Does it smell like Viktor and Rolf's Flowerbomb? Yes, a little.

A rich scent, would definitely be much preferred by ladies who love woody scents.

Yayyyyyyyyyyyyys:
1. Okay staying power. Gives me 3 -4 hours. Enough for this scent as it is a mist.
2. The bottle is a delight to see on my dressing.
3. The price is apt for the quiantity you get.
4. Some of the bath and body scents, not this one have lasted for 2 weeks(not kidding yes) 2 weeks on my clothes. I was surprised too.
5. Contains aloe nourishes the skin.
6. I will buy this scent blindly followed by dark kiss and warm vanilla sugar.
7. The best BBW scent I have come across in this life time.
8. It is amongst their best sellers.
9. Limited edition, if you this anywhere in future pick 2. One for yourself one for me. Blindly.
10. See through plastic bottle.
11. Good alternate for all the expensive channels and dior out there. Smells rich.

Nayssssssssssssss:
1. They just discontinued it. Boooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!
2. Not available in India.

Overall Rating:
11/10!

Bring it back BBW please!

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...




Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018 Denim is forever. It's versatility makes it a classic and in the form of a jacket it not just looks dapper and en vogue but is also comfortable and convenient... I love denim jackets because they are perfect for Pune's so called Winters and because they are the best accessories for any kind of outfit...




Going through some of the Fall Winter 2017-18 collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney, denim on denim seemed to be the trend in boxy and boyish silhouettes. I am not a very big fan of denim and denim and hence I prefer to pair my boxy denim jacket with a flowy, floral dress that makes the look strike a balance between feminine and androgynous.
