**Mini Haul**

I was feeling so bored, but going out was not on my mind because of the sun. However fortunately it rained in Chennai last night and the weather is so much nicer now. But still didn't want to go out long distance to the mall or something, so sitting here with my laptop and writing the post for you guys. I hope you enjoy it.
Just got some basic stuff that i was planning to buy from a long time and i also got a pair of studded bangles which are GORGEOUS.....


Here is the breakdown..
  • Livon Silky potion : Rs 200 for 100 ml. I see that they have changed the packaging a little bit and the price too...I have used it in the past and liked how it made my hair more manageable and smooth. 
  • Sunsilk conditioner for damaged hair : Rs 99 for 180 ml and i got it for Rs94 :).I have heard lot of good things about this conditioner so wanted to give it a try.
  • Nivea Whitening Deo spray & underarm roll-on deo : Rs 170 for 15o ml for the spray and Rs 165 for 50 ml of the roll-on deo. Frankly my underarms keep getting darker every summer, so thought i would buy it and i love the scent of it already.
  • Oriflame Savannah Nail Polish : I got it for 79 rupees and it is the shade Soft Freesia, i got it mainly because i liked the shape of the bottle and the brush was also in white colour.
  • Lastly i also got this pair of bangles and it was for Rs 600. I purchased this from Naidu Hall in Pondy Bazaar. They are super-duper awesome and i bought this coz my brother-in-law is getting married next month.YAY.. and this weekend my MIL is going to buy silk saree for the wedding. I'm so happy..


It came in this box

Craftsvilla Haul and Review

You know there are good, bad and really stinking bad online shopping sites. Today I'm gonna talk about this really amazing online shopping website called Craftsvilla . Its just that the whole experience has been so pleasant and now I'm their loyal customer.

The STORY

There was this time when deals and you (it offers Daily Best DEALS in your City), had a discount voucher on sale, but i didn't buy it coz i was not sure how this site would be. So I let that offer pass by and then i stumbled upon their Facebook page by chance and they had this thing, where if you like them on Facebook you get Rs. 250 off on your first purchase of Rs. 500 or more!.  

I placed my order on the 9th of June and in 2 mins i got the order confirmation email. On the very next day i got an email saying that my order has been shipped along with my shipping details. I got the stuff today on 14 th June ,Just 4 days BABY...YEAH..now that called excellent customer service.

Thus i placed my very first order with them for about Rs 525 (shrewd me) and after the discount it was Rs 275. I ordered three soaps and a candle.


I just loved the way they packed the stuff, it was lil dented when i got it but it was probably just the courier guys. It was all so nicely bubble wrapped.


Look at the cute green package over there, it was a surprise free gift from them. Its so thoughtful of them, i felt like my friend or someone from my family is sending this. It was just so sweet.


These are the contents of the package. 

Inside the THANK YOU card was this hand written letter by Monica Co-founder, Craftsvilla.


This is the THANK YOU card which you can keep on your study table.
 

These are free Tealight candle that i got  nicely packed with a red ribbon on a green paper cover, somehow i was feeling like christmas...


 These smell so good....hmmmmmhmmmm


The big one is the Olive nuts soap it was for Rs 160 for 150 gm, also got the coffee and vanilla soap for Rs 95 and then the Strawberry munna soap for Rs 95 of 75 gm each..couldn't afford LUSh so ,,hey ,, well


This is the Spicy Cinnamon candle and trust me when i say this it is amazzzziiinggg, coz it smells exactly like cinnamon and comes in a glass with a tip cap.

PROS :

Free home delivery 
Cash on delivery
No child labour
The proceeds from the sale goes to the women workers in Uttranchal and Rajasthan

CONS :

NONE :-)

p.s : Ignore the dirty Table i was just so eggjiiiited that i forgot to clean it.
