Inside My Envy Box September Edition

Good God can you believe that September is already on it's way out and there are just three months to go for this year to end. Didn't this year just start?? I am so not looking forward to the months ahead. I've always been a summer girl and totally dislike the dull, dreary and gloomy winter. Plus, Daylight Savings starts in the US which means my office time gets pushed an hour back and I finish at 3.30 a.m. Sigh :(. Anyway, enough of cribbing and let's get to the topic of this post - The September edition of My Envy Box (Rs 850).

MABH Fast Growth Hair Oil - Review

Today is my turn to talk about the oil that is taking the Indian blogosphere by storm. It is the Makeup and Beauty Home Fast Growth Hair Oil, a creation of a fellow blogger Lancy. She was sweet to send over a sample for me to try out sometime back and I must say that I'm very impressed with the product.

An unique magical combination of natural herbs and essential oils present in the MABH Fast Growth Hair Oil penetrates deeper into your scalp to provide rich nourishment. It also improves blood circulation, thus resulting in faster hair growth. It takes care of dandruff, premature graying and rough hair. Our product makes your hair shinier and manageable from the first use itself. It stops hair fall within weeks of regular usage and helps you grow longer beautiful hair!

Beauty Trends for Durga Puja + New Facials from Green Trends Salon + My New Haircut!

Two weeks from now I'll be returning home from office with a huge smile on my face. Two weeks from now, my city will look its best all ready to welcome the Goddess Durga and her children home for five days. I don't know how many of you have been to Kolkata during the Durga Puja celebrations but if you haven't, do make it a point to come here at least once to witness the madness. Every woman wants to look her best during those five days and on top of every woman's To Do list before the Pujas is a trip to the salon or the 'parlour' to get her skin and hair in top condition. Thanks to Green Trends salon, my hair is at least taken care of.
