Yes kittens, it’s time to discuss that day of the year that people either love or hate!
I have to be honest, for the longest time me and my friends would go out and celebrate anti-valentine’s day on the 14th! We were adorable self righteous rebels! Now, we actually have someone to celebrate it with and it’s a corny money-biting affair!
I hate to admit it but you do eventually dry up for ideas and need help.
Giftease.com is a new online shopping site specially geared towards occasions and gifts. It’s a bit different from your usual shopping site in the way they’ve arranged it by events and also some of the features available once you login.
I’m finally taking the time to write this all down. When I first started with eBay (over 3 years ago), it was very overwhelming. I’m hoping this will serve as a good guide for newbies and or just for people to discover new sellers.
There are a couple of important things I want to mention first though.
All of the sellers mentioned here ship worldwide but there are at times certain exceptions like Russia, Brazil or Italy. Definitely check the product description.
I’ve also purchased from all of them before and I’ve had a good experience with them. I’ve received items within a month and in good condition. If it’s shipped from US it should take 20-25 days....
I was looking for volumizing shampoos and to my delight I was happy to find the Kerastase range at Purplle.com. I though I’d review this site as well!
What I Hauled
OPI : Nail Polish : Mrs. O’Leary’s BBQ (burgundy shade)
Bath and Body Works : Body Lotion : Into The Wild
Kerastase : Shampoo : Bain Volumactive
They have a very large product range and a number of brands from low cost to high end. I’ve mentioned a couple of brands that standout in the Checklist below. It’s an all-round good site to buy make up, skincare and hair products.
I don’t find the design of the site particularly appealing. I’m also quite annoyed with the...
I recently hauled form Mango.com and I thought I’d share my experience with you! I was actually going through majorbrands.com but they didn’t have everything I wanted in stock so I looked to the main website.
What I Hauled
I got a mint green top a sheer top panel.
A beige rectangular mini satchel bag.
A black suede-like pump with rose gold metal on the toe.
So you get free delivery to India if you purchase more than Rs. 6500 otherwise you have to pay Rs.790 (approximately) for shipping. Why so much? Because they ship it from Spain! I had no idea! I only realised it when they sent me a DHL tracking number, which intrigued me and saw the origin was Barcelona. Still,...
I recently had an Inglot haul delivered from MajorBrands.in. I thought I’d share my review on them as well!
Since it’s a part of the group that actually opens up brands in India, they come under a niche category. They have a select few brands that aren’t available on any other Indian shopping site. Also the only place where you get Inglot in India!! You can still get Mango, Aldo elsewhere on sites like ASOS. They’ve also recently started selling La Senza and Bebe. They frequently have discounts as well.
Their service and delivery time is excellent. My order was confirmed in 1 day. It took about 2 more days to dispatch and after that took 2 days to get delivered. So,...
I was looking for bronzey neutral shades that I didn’t have. I also wanted a blue based red lipstick and Ruby Woo seems so out of reach. I decided to buy Revlon’s True Red.
I decided to give MedPlusBeauty a try. I’ll start by saying that I’m pleased with the haul and the website. But the way they handle delivery is atrocious! And I probably won’t buy again from MedPlus because of it. More on the story below, I’ll start with the goodies!
01. NYX – Single Eyeshadow – Taupe
02. NYX – Single Eyeshadow – True Taupe
03. NYX – Single Eyeshadow – Pure Skin
04. NYX – Single Eyeshadow – Peachy Bronze
05. NYX –...
I’m so excited!! Yes, Mango is also available on ShopAtMajorBrands.com but if you’ve ever traversed their apparel section, you’ll know that it’s a tad bit difficult.
I recently went to Mango.com and noticed that they started shipping to India as well! About time though. I hope Zara, MAC catch on to this too.
Shipping costs Rs. 790 which is a bit steep! But shipping is free if the order totals over Rs. 6500. There are lots of options and choices which I don’t find on major brands that are available on the MANGO site.
But my suggestion would be to pick and choose. Buy when there is a sale. If you find the item on major brands as well, choose that instead since...
This a montly post that I’ll be doing where I collate what I want to read this month. I’ll also includes links to stuff on the internet that interested me. Its a good way to have links and places I like in a centralized way.
Hope you find something you like!

Books to Read
01. Mustaine by Dave Mustaine
Megadeth fans? It took me long to find it and I finally have it! This month I want to try and read this.
It’s an autobiography by Dave Mustaine about this rehab stories, the whole Metallica thing and his other experiences. I’m very much looking forward to this!
02. The Secret Pilgrim by John le...
Last month I hauled from Blab.co.in and got a couple of things. Its a got a great selection of brands including some higher end ones like Shiseido, YSL. I got a hair spray, 3 nail polishes and a face cream!
Tigi Bedhead Massive Shine Hair Spray – I have the Tigi Catwalk range I’m quite impressed with it. Tigi in India is hard to come by so I decided to try out Bed Head. I’ve heard rave reviews about this one and I hope it adds some much needed shine to my hair. I also like the smell, its fruity.
Zoya Amminah – Its a beautiful sheer white duochrome polish. I like wearing sheer ones on my fingers for office. It has a purplish sheen to it.
Zoya Lisa –...
