Unboxing and Review: Books N Beyond Box, August 2017



Only a bookworm like me will understand the excitement of getting a book box delivered straight to your doorstep.
By now, you already know how much I am a fan of monthly subscription boxes, which includes beauty or lifestyle's product. And a book lover like me will not spare a subscription box which sends curated bookish merchandise alongside one of the best-selling books.
To be honest, I was little skeptical about book boxes, because you don’t have the choice of picking up the book you love, you have to do away with what you are served. So, after a lot of research and more research, I stumbled upon this awesome box called 'Books N Beyond' and I thought they were pretty decent based on the reviews and feedback I got. So I left everything behind and started with my monthly trail subscription.

                                           Joy of reading. Delivered in a Box.
About- Books N Beyond- It is a monthly book subscription service that delivers a book along with other bookish merchandise. You can subscribe for monthly, quarterly or custom make it. If you are willing to subscribe the Special Edition Monthly Themed Boxes, you will receive a New Release/Bestseller with other High Quality and Cool Fandom merchandise according to the Theme.

Today, I will be reviewing the August Box themed- Sugar and Spice, and I must say I fell in love with it the moment I unboxed, i.e., am awestruck with the bookish merchandise and a book by author Sandhya Menon which they have curated and sent over.
Okay, without much ado, allow me to share the excitement with you as I unbox and reveal what I got inside.

The Book 'When Dimple Met Rishi' by Sandhya Menon (with a handwritten letter from the author). 

A dreamy pillow cover from Eviebookish.

A Keychain with detailed "Okay, Okay" inscription.

 A Mocking Jay Pin.

A cool F.R.I.E.N.D.S Badge.

A Pair of Pride and Prejudice themed earrings from 'The Bookish Pandora.'

 Harry Potter Severus Snape's Poster.

Book mark and discount coupon.

TBH, I am super impressed by the content, and I love the way they have packed. Trust me, you will fall in love with the neat packaging. However, one thing which needed an improvement is the delivery date, I know they have to send across numerous order, but it will be better if we get to hold on the awesome box at the beginning of every month.
My Verdict:
Will I continue with my Subscription- Definitely, Yes.
One Box will cost you up to - Rs. 1499/- but it is worth the money with so many amazing bookish merchandise plus one of the best sellings books.
I cannot wait to send across to some of my book nerd friends as a gift.

           If you are a bookworm like me, you should start your subscription right away!
                                  Experience the 'Joy of Reading. Delivered in a Box.

Ahaglow Face Wash Review

Tried and Tested! For the past two months, I went through a very bad acne outburst phase. And when I say bad, it means BAD. So, with my knack for researching, I googled trying to find a cure or maybe at least some home remedies to treat my acne. But, a multiple trial and error and I gave up.  We know how pimple popping is more than just satisfying, hence the 'habit' left me with very bad scares on my forehead and chin, also I noticed more acne than I had in the first place.  Finally, a visit to my dermatologists came to my rescue. She prescribed  some medication i.e. face wash (I am coming to this), some anti-acne ointments, and a few capsules to take.  Obviously, I had to religiously follow the skin routine treatment, but in the hour of everything, there was this thing which I discovered… it was the face wash (Yep, the point of this blog, TBH) which I can give the entire credit to. AKA presenting to you my fountain of youth in a face wash (I am exaggerating a lil bit.) Ahaglow.…

Book Review: Pyjamas are Forgiving by Twinkle Khanna

Blurb: There sitting on that porch, that light-eyed man, a pitta like me, was my ex-husband and that woman whose inner element I was unaware of unless bitch is accepted as an undiscovered fourth dosha, was his young wife. In the serene sanctuary of Kerala’s Shanthamaaya spa where food is rationed, sex is forbidden and emotions cantered, Anshu meets someone familiar and deeply unsettling – her ex-husband. Bittersweet, funny and wise, Pyjamas Are Forgiving confirms Twinkle Khanna as one of our great storytellers. About the book: The book is narrated by a woman named, Anshu who is in her early 40’s (divorced) and is childless.  To take a well-earned break, Anshu is in a Kerala Ayurvedic Shanthamaaya spa, where food is rationed, sex forbidden, and emotions cantered, whilst on her journey to remove dosha, Anshu is met with a familiar, yet a deeply unsettling sight- her philandering ex-husband, Jay, with his much younger wife, Shalini- who is quite opposite from her, both in physical and emotio…

Dolce and Gabbana 'Dolce Floral Drops' Review

“Dolce Floral Drops is fresh and light, yet as precious as a morning caress.” – Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana






For those who know me, would tell you how much I lovehoardingcollecting perfumes. And for those who doesn't, now you do.

Today I will be reviewing a perfume from one of my favourite brands, Dolce and Gabbana ‘Dolce Floral Drops Eau de Toilette.’  I am very particular when it comes to choosing a perfume. I go for mild and delicate or say ‘not so strong’ kind of smell. This time, the pretty Dolce Floral drops caught my attention and I had to give it a try.

The scent is light and fresh with a twist of sweet yet dewy and soothing texture. Going by my preference, I love fragrances which are feminine and sweet, yet a spray and it should stay for long. D&G Floral drops comes in a thick glass, curved lines, and solid bottom, the cap is sculpted in the shape ofa white flower with petals, the bottle is a frosted glass which gives it a misty green colour.
Subtle with a hint of fr…
