Online shopping and Urban Touch Surprise gift

There had been a time  i use to read all beauty blogs and deeply sigh, coz most of the brands are unavailable in my place.

Now the scenario have changed. Many online shopping sites are available in India and they have almost all Indian brands like Lakme,Maybelline, Chambor, Colorbar, The Body Shop etc as well as some foreign brands like Nyx, Tigi etc.
Fashion and You, Snap deal, Violet bag, Healthkart,B.lab, Urban Touch ..the online shopping sites list goes on.

Among these i made purchase from Fashion and You, Violet bag, Urban Touch, and Snap Deal numerous times and i can vouch for them .I believe other sites also will be equal good since there is a healthy competition between them.

Other than availibility of all products in remote areas these sites are selling most of the products below MRP..yay..what more we want? 😛

Most of these sites are offering free shipping if the purchase is above a minimum amount It is reasonable cause the limiting purchase amount they are putting is very less like 250 INR, 300 INR etc. Otherwise also shipping charge they putting is nominal around 50 INR, more or less.

And another positive thing is all those sites are offering Cash On Delivery facility also, which a beginner and people who are still dubious can use 🙂

Only con i finding with these sites is they are always burning my pocket   😀

When all these wonderful products can be bought sitting in home itself and on seeing all those amazing offers these sites are offering i can’t help but buying  :p

Yesterday i got my Urban Touch hamper which i ordered 2 days before. The feeling when the products we ordered when reaches hand is truly delightful, atleast for me 😎

These are the things i bought this time.

Nyx trio eye shadow in copper , rust and bronze  in 20 % discount and Colorbar iglide in Prunella

An offer is there in Urban Touch, for the purchases above 500 INR there is a surprise gift.

Surprise gift this time  i got was faces emery board .

All these sites provides a safe packaging using thermocol and bubble wrap.Till now i got all products in tact 🙂

50 first dates and a pasta recipe

Today i saw the movie first 50 dates in Z studio. It is 3rd or 4th time i am watching this movie.


It is a silly romantic comedy but has a charm of its own. If you are a person who is very serious about movies, you won’t like it. But people like me who are suckers for romantic comedy and chick flicks will sure like it.


It is about the story of a man who have to struggle  to win his dream girl’s heart every day, since she is suffering from short term memory loss and forgets him everyday when she wakes up   😛


Adam Sandler  as hero and the pretty Drew Barrymore as heroine,  it is really  a sweet movie to watch .

If you haven’t watched it yet , give it a try when you want to laugh  or when you are having a girl’s night 🙂

I watched the movie with a quick made pasta and shop bought potato waffles.



If you are in a lazy mood or want some quick pasta recipe this will be useful to you.

Time required : 5 minutes

Things required :

Pasta -1 cup ( I used macaroni here)

Ripe Tomatoes – 1

Pureed tomato – 1 cup

Garlic – 1/2 cup chopped

Red Kashmiri chilly dried-  According to your spice toleration level (i used 2) or you can use shop bought chilly flakes.

Crushed pepper – according to your spice toleration  level(i taken one tbs. pepper corn and crushed it)

Oregano- 1 tsp

Basil- 1 tsp

Olive oil-  1 tbsp

Cheese grated – 1/2 cup

Light Fresh cream – 1/2 cup

Water – 3/4 cup

Don’t panic seeing ingredient list, the process is quiet simple.


1) Cook your pasta according to your packet instruction.

Most of them require boiling in hot water. Add 2 drops of olive oil to prevent pasta from sticking up. Also add salt. Only half cook pasta.

Remember to throw away the water in which you cooked pasta, it is said to be contain some wax content which is not good for health . After that wash it with cold water and keep aside.

2) While pasta is cooking chop garlic and  then tomato. Break dried red chillies in to small bits. Grate cheese. Crush pepper corns.
