Hope you all are enjoying colorful trends this season!
Today I am telling you people about what I absolutely adore!
It is a tried and tested brand.
I am using Oriflame for the past three years.
I never liked make-up earlier, but for my wedding, a beautician suggested Oriflame.
I was very happy with the 3 lipsticks, a foundation bottle, a compact and an eye shadow I used for a couple of years. Later I discovered the entire range and was astonished to see the unbeatable prices and quality of the products.
Unique features of Oriflame:-
Pocket friendly :
Oriflame does not have dynamic advertising campaigns. Their models are not top actresses who charge crores. That's why they have affordable prices for high quality products.

No Animal Testing.
Oriflame does not test it's products on animals. They have human volunteers.

Harmless Ingredients.
 I have a sensitive skin with frequesnt breakouts.I tried many International brands but only Oriflame suited me the best.

Long before other brands started this, Oriflame skin care has classified their products according to Age, Skin Type and Skin problems.

Effective and long lasting.
Their facewash and shampoos last really long time. I still use one bottle of facewash for atleast three months. Two people using twice a day for three months. Totally worth the money.

If you are that Diva who wants the best, they have Giordani range too. Still much much more to say!
Nail Polishes, Lipsticks, Lip Balms, Shampoos, Facewashes, Toner, Creams, Foundation, Compact, and awwwwsum Perfumes(Below 1000 rs ones are great!!), Ritu Kumar Scarf, Mascaras,Hair Sprays, cleansing pads, and much more products, I used them all , sell and gift to my friends too!
Watch out this space for more, and tell me if you want my review for any specific item. Will surely tell you if I used it.
Can't believe a no Make-Up girl like me has been obsessed with Oriflame now!
(Oriflame is associated with #CalenderGirls movie which is going to hit the screens soon)

Best brands online for shoes.

(First, I will start with great news! I passed my ICWA Inter, and now I am the Notable Newbie at Blogadda.com since Aug 24. Thank you so much for your support! I hope my blogs will be useful to you in reducing costs as I aspire to be a Cost Accountant soon!)

With your inbox filled with "Sale, OMG , last day, hurry up, 50 percent off, 100 percent off " mails, you might be wondering what to purchase, and what not to.
I can actually shortlist some really good, durable and economically priced shoe brands purchased online along with the fitting details.
First I will tell you what never to do.

  • Do not go for products which cannot be returned, even if they are being given free. The product with bad quality or sizing, will be a burden on your wardrobe.
  • Do not go for an online purchase if your foot shape/size is different from usual.
  • For example, some have wider feet for their foot size, or thinner feet, which makes it difficult to find the exact fit online.
  • If your net connection is bad, wait till it is restored, don't ever hurry on a purchase if you cannot access all the information properly.
  • Never skip the size charts, as some brands have different sizes for your foot length.

Here are the best brands whose purchase I cherish.

I always purhase shoes from Nell. It is a good quality brand, and durable too.Maximum of my online purchases are Nell shoes.

I was going abroad, to Copenhagen and my trip was only 5 days away. I ordered two pairs of sneakers from the said brand , both below 1000 INR, and trust me, I totally loved them as they kept me warm even at 11 degree Celcius temperature. Why to spend more?

Another durable, well fitting and very trendy designs of shoes. Light weight and light on pocket too.

It is a great brand of shoes available on Myntra..I could not procure a pic as Myntra is now only on App.
Other brands are Miss She, and Colours.
They are just worth the money if not more.
If you have tried these brands earlier please share your feedback with me.
