Gifting Ideas for friends

International Friendship Day : Gifting Ideas for All Types of Friends

Hello people! Friendship Day is just around the corner, have you planned anything yet? Ah I know, most of us are either caught up in a busy life, or live away from one another in different cities. So while meeting up may not always be possible, we do hold those darlings close in our hearts. And as maturity catches up with us, we seldom speak up of how we love them, and miss them. Bygone are the teens when showering friends with gifts was more than just a norm. Friendship bands, greetings and chocolates were greatly exchanged and cherished.

But while meeting up physically may not always be possible, how about sending across tokens of love in form of gifts to those friends? The advent of e-commerce websites and subscription boxes has made it so easy to shop for gifts. I have a few gifting ideas for all types of buds, whether near or far. Read on to know!

For the Bibliophilic Friend :

The easiest yet the finest gift you can ever give a bibliophilic friend are books, or even better, go for book subscription boxes. There are a few really amazing book subscription boxes available in India, which not only curate the latest and best releases, but also include cool bookish merchandise with each box. If you’re on a high budget, go ahead and present a Kindle (in case she doesn’t already possess one). Or order a set of books for her from Amazon and send it across. Easy-peasy! An icing on the cake would be if you customize the gift. Try adding a fragrant candle, or some quirky stationery along with the set of books, check the option of gift-wrap while checking out on amazon, and send it. She will love the whole of it, and I repeat, nothing makes better gifts than books! Read more

Suganda 2-step skincare for oily to combination skin

My Simple yet Effective Skincare Routine with Suganda : Neem Green Tea Mask, White Lotus Moisturizer Review

Hello people! I had recently shared a simple 2-step skincare routine on my Instagram account. It involves just two products : a powder cleanser-cum-mask, and a moisturizer. Both from a new brand : Suganda. I have been using these for around two weeks now. Not only am I taken aback by their efficacy, but also I’m highly impressed with their aesthetics.

Suganda is a Hyderabad-based brand spearheaded by Bindu Amrutham, who is a natural skincare expert. Her premium skincare brand formulates products with plant extracts infused with essential vitamins.

Bindu suggested me the Neem Green Tea Mask and White Lotus Moisturizer. Both targeted at oily to combination, acne-prone skin types.

Swan LED Lamp

How I Used LEDs to Perk Up My Home ft. Cute Little Nest

Hello people! Cute Little Nest is the new store in Insta town that I can’t stop raving about. Not because it is a startup by a good friend, but because it sells the most adorable stuffs for your home! Well I’m excited about today’s post, not only because it is about one of my favorite niches, but because it is my first post on home decor.😊

I have only recently shared my haul with CLN in Instagram, and all of your interests already showed how popular this can get. Today’s post is all about how I used those teeny tiny stuffs to light up nooks and crannies of my home. 🙂

What I bought (although most of you already know that😉):

  • Swan LED lamp – INR 1100
  • Rose LED String Lights – INR 600
  • Princess Eye Mask – INR 299

And received additional smiley pen and Chandbalis from Voylla as special gifts! (Don’t envy me sweets, I was one of their first customers.😎)

Summer Indulgence with Nyassa : Mandarin Citrus Handmade Soap and Cola Twist Lip Moisturiser Review

Hi all. Now after a year of blogging, it is no longer a secret that I’m a big time bath-n-body products’ fanatic. 😀 Maybe that’s the reason summers seem inviting to me?😅 And nothing but mangoes and some amazing shower products could make my summers any better.

When it comes to shower or bath-n-body products, Nyassa is a renowned name. With its versatile range of products, the brand is sure to pamper you from head to toe. I am currently using (and loving) their Mandarin Citrus Soap and Cola Twist Lip Moisturiser!

A Little About Nyassa :

We call this thinking ‘From Heaven and Earth’.
Imagine the most exotic and mesmerizing of fragrances, exquisite and indelible, romantic and dreamy. Then imagine a whole basket of pure and wholesome natural ingredents, from the bosom of the earth, beneficial to your skin and body. Now imagine them coming together harmonously, elegantly, almost divinely, in a bath soap, or a body butter, or a handwash, or a face cream.

Imagine products that stimulate your mind with their rich bouquets as they nourish and enliven your body with their active ingredients. In your shower or out of it.
