My Envy Box April Edition Review

Hey guys, how are you all? So, today I am going to review MY ENVY BOX APRIL 2015 EDITION. Firstly, let me tell you that I love MY ENVY BOXES.Their customer service is so good. Their delivery is too fast. As I've told you in one of my posts I live in a small district of West Bengal, so delivery of any items in this area is pretty slow but MY ENVY BOXES get it delivered to me from 10th to 20th of each month. I got this month's box on 16th April which I think is pretty amazing. I'm sorry I'm a little late for doing the review but I was stuck up with so many things lately. Honestly, I'm in love with MY ENVY BOX. So, without wasting much time let's just get into it!!!

Be Happy & Enjoy Life #CelebrateLifeAtIvy

Money is considered to be the most important ingredient to make the recipe of life tastier. However, is it enough to make us happy? Happiness is a feeling that can be achieved by small things that may not have any value in our lives. Money can buy everything, but happiness and love.
 
 
Our life is not actually a bed of roses, but that does not mean that we stop living with the fear of treading on thorns. Life is short and we need to find out a way to live every moment with smile and laughter, and to be happy from within. I am definitely not trying to present any philosophical ideologies here, but the things that make me happy may sound quite ordinary for most.
 
I become very happy when I can bring a smile on the face of my loved ones. I feel happy when I visit my parents, or when I listen to music. Happiness really cannot be bound by a few handfuls of factors. It can come anywhere from anything. Sometimes even the smell of damp soil can make you feel happy. For me a mug of smoking hot coffee every evening brings an incredible feeling, mixed with energy and pure happiness.

Event Coverage Simplified with #AsusZenfone2

As a beauty and lifestyle blogger, I have to cover a lot of events and Press Meets. Photography forms an integral part of my work, for which I rely solely on my cell phone. However, sometimes it becomes quite difficult to take clear pictures with a mobile phone, specially during press meets. With so many enthusiastic real photographers taking the front positions, I have to take hazy pictures from the back rows. For events at night the picture quality is horrible due to low light. This sounds frustrating, but I can see a ray of hope for my photographic skills with the launch of Asus ZenFone 2.


Asus ZenFone 2 will be a blessing for me to get the best clicks from the Fashion events I attend, thanks to its Powerful camera. Let me scribble a few points on how it can be the Genie to me:

1.Make the Showstoppers Real: Attending a Press Meet or Fashion show can prove to be quite challenging when you have to take pictures. The face of your favourite stars or models may not appear as delightful and attractive in your picture, if you have to take it from the back rows. Asus ZenFone 2 with its superior beautification mode will enable me to ease up this pain and the star showstopper will almost come alive in pictures.

Top 5 Ways to Accessorize the Linen Shirt

Come summer, and comes the need to wear fabrics that are skin-friendly and do not make us sweat. Generally cotton and linen are the preferred fabric that is widely worn during the summer. These fabrics are breathable and can hold perspiration for long. Linen shirts/trousers look very eye-soothing on men, both for casual and formal wear.


However, accessorizing men’s outfits often becomes a tough job because of the limitation. But if we venture a little, we can think of many ways to accessorize the Linen Shirt. Here are the top 5 ways that we can work with:

Humor is the way to #CrashThePepsiIPL

When you cannot win a war with weapons, win it with humor. Most of the award winning advertisements have always revolved around or depicted humor in some form. While going through the #CrashThePepsiIPL Challenge videos, I could find most of the videos were presented with an element of humor.


Some of the ads that deserves a mention are listed. Not necessarily these ads were made with real mastery, or projected the best creatives. However, the element of humor was present in these advertisements.

This video shows an auto-driver, so thirsty for his passenger's Pepsi, that he is ready to barter his fare charges for a glass of Pepsi. The element of fun, which is projected with absurdity, is quite evident here. But you do not have to make sense to reach the audience right? Most of our popular movies are shining examples of this truth. Also notable, is the performance of the actor who plays the auto-driver here. I wish they could have excluded any conversation, and made the video silent, just with expressions.

The Ideators, Executors & Real Makers of #CrashThePepsiIPL Challenge

When I was a student of advertising, the most interesting activity was to make a video advertisement. Making your own video advertisements sounds fun and involves active participation from an entire team. However the main ingredients of the best ad recipe, is a great idea teamed with excellent execution, so that the main product or service advertised gets maximum exposure, while connecting with the audience, and of course to make a place in their memory.Sounds a mouthful?


#CrashThePepsiIPL has come up with a first-ever campaign where anybody can showcase their hidden creative gem by making a video advertisement for Pepsi. Well by anybody, I mean anybody,-"You,Me aur Hum." Here are some of the ads that I can recall for reasons specified against the pointers.

1.The Executors: Some ads has decent execution, but some how the idea is quite old and repetitive.



Pepsi Pilao, Ladki Patao, well that's the basic idea of this ad. A sad girl, abandoned by her boyfriend, sitting alone in a cafe and feeling depressed from the recent breakup, suddenly gets befriended with a Pepsi, by a young man, who was all the while watching her breakup process. Not bad, specially the way they show him carrying the pen-knife towards the girl. But Haven't we seen this idea from ages... like it is so easy to get a girl!!

Treatment for hair loss: Tricks to beat the summer heat

Maintain healthy and beautiful hair this summer by following hair fall treatment tips. Learn how to manage your hair by adopting a proper treatment for hair loss.
Hair fallen on your shoulders, towel, and even the hair brush can get annoying. There are many reasons for hair fall such as aging, heredity, injury, or hormonal changes. But when it is summer, the season can take a toll on the health of your hair. To avoid hair damage, you need to protect your hair from the ultraviolet rays of the sun by getting an excellent hair fall treatment. You need to understand why it is important to get a safe treatment for hair loss. Read further to check out the best hair loss solutions.


·         Causes of hair loss in summer
Sweat is the major reason for hair loss. Due to excessive heat, the pores of the scalp open up, secrete oils and spread the sweat all over the surface of the head. In such a case, your hair gets weaker and more prone to falling off. At times, you are tempted to keep scratching your scalp because of the excessive irritation, which is one of the causes of hair loss due to dandruff. In turn, the extreme itching makes hair fall even worse. To avoid losing hair and getting bald patches on your head, you should opt for a nourishing hair fall treatment.

Manju Devi:An Inspiration with #WillOfSteel

A woman is like a tea bag. You never know her strength until she is in hot water
 This saying by Nancy Reagan is so true. Men and women are both creations of nature and both deserve respect equally. A woman is only helpless when she applies nail-polish on her nails and it isn't dry. Even then she can click a trigger if necessary. A happy woman is strong but a woman who has nothing to lose is stronger than ever. She can do everything and anything if necessary as she has no fear to lose anything.  Now, coming to the point of respecting women, I would like to ask do we really get the respect we deserve. I guess no because I see women being dominated every where be it in work place, at home or on some pages of social media.. A single woman, if she wants, can even compete a 1000 men. The story I'm going to share with you will prove that.



The story I'm going to tell is not that of a celebrity but someone who may be assumed to be very ordinary. This is a story of 30 year old widowed lady named Manju Devi who resides in a diminutive hamlet. My intention is to give her the respect that she actually deserves. What she does for a living is worth saluting. Widowed a year ago, she bears the burden of bringing up her three children single-handedly .To earn a living, she left her drought-stricken village to work as a porter (coolie) among 200 male porters, at Jaipur city's Railway station. She is nominated in JSW WILL OF STEEL. But, I feel very sorry to say that she didn't get enough votes whereas she deserves more. In a society where women are still dominated and looked down upon, she chose to challenge the norms. She decided to stand among 200 men alone, take up a cumbersome task that has been solely ventured by the men folk and has successfully been doing it.

But believe me, to use outfits of last year’s trend, this year, is possible and that too in a very easy way. Lakme School of Style will guide you to do that without even investing a penny from your pocket.

Indian Earthy Naturals Green Tea and Love Indian Rose Handmade Soaps Review

Of late I have been loving a brand of soap so much that I cannot get enough of it. I am talking about Indian Earthy Naturals. Today I will be reviewing 2 soaps from them-Indian Earthy Naturals Green Tea and Love Indian Rose Handmade Soaps.


About Indian Earthy Naturals Green Tea Handmade Soap:


Deriving its qualities from GREEN TEA EXTRACT, ALOE VERA FRESH GEL, RAW SHEA BUTTER, VIRGIN OILS & ESSENTIAL OILS (ROSEMARY, TEATREE, CEDARWOOD, CYPRESS), this aromatic soap is very gentle and soothing. It makes soft foam and delicately cleanses the skin while maintaining skin’s natural moisture balance. Suitable for both children and adults. Green tea is anti-inflammatory and contains an antioxidant known as polyphenols which fight against free radicals. Aloe vera is known for its skin healing and soothing properties, hence this combination of ingredients make this soap, a very skin loving soap.

Talk Two:Talk #TwiceAsNice

When 2 people of same interest meet together, for a cause, the chemistry becomes quite juicy. And here we are, Airene, from Beauty & Beyond and Kanika from Her Creative Palace, 2 bloggers bonding together for the first time to show the world the effect of #TwiceAsNice.


 We all know in today's busy life, each one of us want to look good and elegant, not only in dressing, but also looks wise. When we are talking about looks, we can't forget the most important ingredients which exist in our lives, especially in a girl's life, and that is makeup. But is only applying makeup sufficient to look good and elegant? Not really!! We, girls are very much particular about our makeup thingy, then how can we forget about our skin, that forms the base of makeup?

Surely, you also look after your skin very well and to keep it maintained, nourished and healthy, use a few products that form a part of your skin care regime. Face wash and face scrub play an important role to maintain our skin’s health and beauty. We need to hunt for such face washes & scrubs which our skin is ready to adjust to, as every individual's skin is different. 

When Garnier sent us the Garnier Pure Active Real Neem Face-Wash and the Pure Active Apricot Exfoliating Face scrub for the #TwiceAsNice Blogger’s activity, we thought what great difference will both make to our skin!! Let’s just find out.

5 Tips to Choose Your Outfit for First Day at Work

Student life is full of fun and frolic. Generally we do not shy away from experimenting with fashion in college, be it a funky Tee-shirt with quirky designs or a very bright and colorful accessory, we have tried them all. However, work life is completely different and calls in for some seriousness in what your wear and how you present yourself. The first day of work can be quite challenging for anyone. To accept and to get accepted from the very first day should be the most important thing to keep in mind. We have to be one among the crowd without losing our individuality.


Here are few important tips that we can follow to choose our outfit for the first day of our work:

1. Play Safe but Not Boring: Picking up colours that are known to be the epitome of formal wear can be a safe option. Whites and blues can always give you the kind of seriousness one would look for in a corporate environment. However, bringing in some colour would not do any harm either. You can choose a check-print shirt or incorporate a little peek a boo of a colour with a hankerchief from your shirt pocket or wear paneled shirts to make it look a bit interesting.

Dil Mange More from Asus ZenFone2

I am not a technology geek, nor I am a gadget freak. I require my gadgets just to stay connected to my near & dear ones and mostly for my work, which involves a lot of communication and using a number of applications. So, Asus ZenFone 2 has garnered a great reason for me to take some special interest.



Asus ZenFone2 runs on Android 5.0 Lollypop and is packed with Asus Apps. It has vibrant 5.5 inch full HD IPS display with pixel density of 403ppi and a 4 GB Ram memory. That is incredible keeping in mind the amount of data we process in our mobile phones nowadays. As a blogger, half of my job is done with my cell phone and so this feature is very essential.

The PixelMaster camera also is a big plus point of Asus Zenfone 2, specially for capturing pictures at night. I have to attend events in the evening or night. And I am too reluctant to carry my camera everywhere, so cell phone is the only option at that time. Due to lack of proper light often the pictures come hazy and unclear. However, with Asus ZenFone 2’s superior high resolution photo capturing powers, I can ensure the best and sharpest pictures with zero shutter lag. The Low –Light mode enables sharp pictures with 400% more clarity, even during night. The rear camera enables the users to record Full HD videos with its 13 MP camera.

Because of its advanced technology the battery is charged much faster than any other mobile device. So, in less than 40 minutes, around 60% battery charge is possible and so it will of much use for those people who are always glued to their phones for various purposes like chatting, listening to music or watching movies.

The look of the Asus ZenFone2 is also a point for which it is attractive to me. The sleek metallic body with the patent features of Asus series, their traditional design elements such as brushed-metal finish removable plastic rear panel adds to the beauty of the cell phone that is much appealing to the eyes. One of the prominent features included in this amazing device is the shifting of Volume key at the back. This feature makes it easy for the user to control volume according to his needs. The power key is also shifted from the side to the top which is a significant update from the earlier version.

These incredible features and ease in use makes the Asus ZenFone2 an absolute choice for any person who loves to get the most out of his phone. I #CantWait4Zenfone2 and would surely want to get my hands on it as it may make my life much smoother.


Trust Those who Trust Thee:#DealKiDealOnSnapDeal

Truth & trust are two T's that are almost fading away from our lives. We often come across  incidents where a person of  trust has cheated someone.This actually makes us cautious and restricts us further to rely on, no matter how much that person is close to you. I am no exception and always try not to put my trust on anybody and everybody around.


Like any other household, there is one lady who comes to my house to help me out in my household work. She does the cleaning, mopping, dusting etc. In the beginning, I was reluctant to assign all the work to her, as I hardly knew her, but slowly she won my confidence. I started assigning more and more things to her along with the perks. Its been 2 years she has been working in my house. I have no complaints with her, and she also fits fine. Sometimes she treats me with nice homemade snacks during festivals. She never skips work, for taking leave she tells me from beforehand. At times when I have to go out, she makes a time to come later and do my work, in spite of working in other houses. She never bothers me if she sees I am busy in my work. Even I do not interfere in the way she works and she does everything just fine.We have developed a healthy understanding with each other.

A Bit of Smile & More:#DilKiDealOnSnapdeal

Have you ever wondered how it feels to be called as a didi by a 4 year old when you are in your 30's? Well I know exactly how it feels. I am privileged to have a cousin who is 4 year old and the last time I saw her, she was just 2 years. But in the age of cyber communication distance is just a matter of a screen, be it on your laptop or your mobile phone.



Various forms of chat mediums have eased our lives and make us stay connected with our near & dear ones. However, the physical closeness still cannot be substituted. I have been listening to my cousin's voice, getting glimpses of her growing up, her cute conversations for sometime on phone. Now and then I have been gifting her with dolls and toys. She knows me well and keeps on asking me some new stuffs whenever we are chatting.

Burst of Colour from Flipkart.com

Well well, how can I sit back and relax without picking up a thing or 2 from my favourite online shopping destination, Flipkart.com. And here, oops I did it again!! I got some statement neckpieces once again at good price. This time I got them in multi-coloured hues, Isn't spring all about colours?


As I always say, I love me necklaces to stand out. I do not resist myself from experimenting with colour, designs and style when it comes to necklaces. This time I thought of incorporating the brightest hues from the necklace section of Flipkart.com.

When Celebs Sell!! #CrashThePepsiIPL

No idea if Logie Baird ever thought of selling shampoos via his revolutionary invention!! Yes or no, it sells now. Gone are days, when commercials were restricted to mostly models. The only famous brand that had celebrity names attached to it was perhaps a soap brand. But now, everywhere you look around you see celebrities endorsing brands. Super hot moviestars, sports personalities, TV stars, you name them and they have been on TV at least once for a commercial.


When we talk of the biggest Bollywood stars, the first name that comes to our mind is that of Amitabh Bachchan. Today at 73, he is still hot and happening. His endorsements have well covered every genre, beginning with hair oils, to instant noodles, to chocolates, gold or real estate. Not far behind is his daughter-in-law who is the face of some prestigious global brands. Considered as one of the most beautiful women in the world, she delivers the best when it comes to her mesmerizing performances even in the advertisements, she appear. 

The No-Brainers of the Idiot Box:#CrashThePepsiIPL

You can always watch your favourite films by booking a cozy corner of the Gold Class with your partner, happily munching on the pizzas and sipping on the colas.Not to mention the paid amount can fetch you meal for the entire week. I, being the soul savior of Indian economy would prefer to catch up the same film after 3 long months on the TV, sitting in the cozy corner of my couch, munching on the Buy1 Get 1 Pizza and sipping from the cola pet jar. Television, which actually is the most neglected piece of object in my house, becomes the most valuable source of entertainment for that single day.

A film that runs well around 2 hours, is prolonged to almost 5 hours on the Idiot Box, in spite of a handful of scissor works from the Censor Board. Courtesy, the ample number of advertisements featured in between. I do not mind watching some of these where some creativity or innovation is projected. But mostly these commercials, when they continuously scream out "Sar jo Tera Chakraye" actually make your head spin, Rendition is good, but to this extent, nah!!
