October Envy Box - 3 Year Anniversary

India's favorite luxury product sampling box, My Envy Box, turned 3 this October and on this special occasion, they have surprised us with 3 extra products in the box! Another unique concept they've followed with this box is that it's black and white and there's a contest running where subscribers need to color the box and the winner gets a special prize! How cool is that?

Okay so when it comes to the contents, it's a mixed bag. To be honest, I was expecting better products so the anniversary edition was a slight disappointment for me. I'll start with the Nertia nail stickers which seems a like very low end product be a part of this box. It would make more sense if they gave us a premium product like Sally Hansen's Salon Effect Nail polish strips instead.

Another disappointment is the Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner duo by L'occitane because it's a fantastic product but it would have been better if they were a little more generous with the samples and gave us a couple more sachets. 

Then there's the full sized jar of Vert Loose Powder in Shade Miss Pink. The shade is pink and shimmery and can be used as a blush, eye shadow or highlighter. I also got a generous sample of Ayca Jasmine Body wash which is perfect for traveling. The downside is that I hate the smell of Jasmine. 

What made me happy is that after a long time they finally gave us a perfume sample. I got Dahlia Divin by Givenchy which is a strong and long lasting fragrance which is perfect for the night. 

The two samples which I loved the most are Vichy Ideal White brightening Deep Cleansing Foam which is a really nice face wash which cleanses effectively and has a really refreshing floral fragrance. I love it! Another superb product is Forest Essentials Facial Cleansing Paste which is made of a blend of rich Almond, Pistachio, fresh turmeric paste and honey among other ingredients. It smells like cake and feels really amazing on skin. It also exfoliates very well. I love it!

So this was the 3 Year Anniversary special box! Subscribe to My Envy Box here

Outfit - Pretty in Pink

I've been on a dress accumulating spree and got this beautiful maxi dress from Gamiss - a fantastic online store where I found lots of beautiful clothes at fantastic prices. I shot this look with Nikita, a close friend of mine who also happens to be an excellent hairstylist and makeup artist and thanks to her, my makeup is on fleek for a change! I love how pretty this dress is and it's so perfect for a bridesmaid or beach wedding! Can't wait to wear it on my next beach holiday!

Diwali Shopping & Crazy Discounts

Diwali may be the festival of lights but every Indian knows that it's also the festival of shopping! At this time, Women prefer buying new outfits, bags, shoes and jewelry while men always look for electronics as we get the best deals on them at this time. It is traditionally a time when households purchase new clothing, home refurbishments, gifts, gold and other large purchases. And since the festival celebrates Lakshmi, who is the goddess of wealth and prosperity, spending and purchases are considered auspicious at this moment. Diwali is also the peak buying season for gold and jewelry along with sweets and fireworks of course.

And since Diwali is just around the corner, it's the perfect time to go shopping! It's no secret that online stores offer the best deals during this period, and I found an awesome website called Paylesser India which brings together all the best products and deals from India's leading online stores organised under different categories. When you shop from Paylesser India, you get the best deals and offers on products from trusted and loved online sites like Flipkart, Amazon and Ebay along with Myntra coupons and Jabong coupons.

What makes your shopping experience even better here is that you also get additional cashback so not only do you pay lesser and but you also save more as you get the added benefit of earning coupons on every purchase. When it comes to the range of items offered, you can find latest items under various section such as men, women, electronics, baby and kids, home and living, sports and fitness, health and beauty and more. Shopping at Paylesser is seamless and convenient and I've just ordered a bunch of stuff from there so make sure you check it out!
