GlassesShop.com Review ~ My first pair of Sunglasses

I have never owned a pair of sunglasses. Ever.

No. It's not because I don't like them or didn't feel the need to own a pair. I love them actually and I have always wanted to own loads and loads of them, in every colour, size and shape possible, but.. 
Then why? The answer is simple. I have had hypermetropia since I was in class 7th and eyeglasses have been a part of me ever since. If you wear eye glasses too, you'll know how funny even the idea of owning sunglasses sounds!

There have been so many instances in my life where I have felt the need to own a pair of sunglasses. You know how a girl who grows up believing in a fairy tale awaits her Prince charming? That's exactly how much I have been waiting to own my perfect piece of sunglasses!

Few years back my best friend who also has hypermetropia showed up at my home wearing a gorgeous pair of sunglasses. It turned out that she was wearing lenses under them. I wear lenses too but only on occasions. It's just too much of a bother to wear them everyday. Also, I wanted to feel comfortable in my pair of sunglasses and wearing lenses below them was just out of the question!

It was my brother who introduced me to the concept of prescription sunglasses. Sunglasses custom designed for me with my power and choice of design? Wow! That sounded so thrilling and I didn't waste a minute in visiting my nearest eye wear shop and inquiring. My outing didn't turn out to be too fruitful as I didn't like the designs available and the pricing for each pair was SKY HIGH! That was when I started looking up for glasses online and doing a little bit of research. Finally, I have found my dream pair of sunglasses, customized for me from GlassesShop! :D I love you online world! :*

GlassesShop is your one stop shop for all eye accessories. They offer cheap glasses with  premium quality and amazing designs. There are thousands and designs for you to choose from, each of which you can customize!

Do you want to hear something more thrilling? The sunglasses you see in the picture are not really sunglasses. The frame is of an eye glass at GlassesShop and they were so kind to customize the frame for me and turn it into a sexy pair of sunglasses! I loveee them! :D What do you say? ;)

I love all my lovely readers <3 So here's a little treat for you all: Use the coupon code " GSHOT50 to get a FLAT 50% off on your orders from GlassesShop! Go grab the opportunity and thank me later ;)

#FeelTheHeat with #famestars

I really appreciate all those people who carry out their day to day activities on the road during such extreme summers. Be it vendors, or the labourers, they totally deserve a salute for working so hard. Vending involves an enormous rate of physical labour and this is the reason why it's not everyone's cup of tea.

These people know no heat, they know no cold. You will see them making rides of the streets or waiting at their thelas early in the morning and late into the night. Be it rain, breeze or sun, there's no stopping them, they carry out their daily routine, work hard and sweat out to make a living.

Having born and brought up in the urban luxuries, just the thought of taking the place of a roadside vendor or a construction labourer and working under this scorching summer heat makes me shudder.

Bangalore is blessed to have got the best of weather but Summer here is as hot as anywhere else in India. It's just that we are surrounded with amenities like ACs, fans, coolers and a beautiful infrastructure which doesn't let us actually feel the heat.

I happened to make a visit to the market here in Shivijainagar and trust me it was hell! I had to brave the public packed busy streets and visit at least fifteen shops there until I was finished with whatever I wanted. By the time I reached the 10th shop I was sweaty all over, feeling dizzy and my head was burning like a hot pan. My hair had become a reckless mess, eyes were droopy and I was ready to give away my life for a sip of water. No kidding. When I came back home I remember spending a long deal of time pondering over how the vendors in that place bear the such scorching heat, that too from morning to night, every single day!

To feel the same state of such vendors and other people working on the roads, the #Famestars came up with a wonderful CSR initiative called #FeelTheHeat on the 25th of May. This was a very interesting initiative where the #famestars exchanged roles with some vendors for half an hour and did their work while they got some rest. Check out the video below for a sneak in into their endeavor.

#famestars - #Giving week video: https://fame.live/vod/515484

Just watching this video makes one sweat. Truly, the work these people do demands so much physical hard work! I would love to see more people taking this up, if not making a big deal of difference, it will definitely bring a smile on a vendor's face. :)

What do you think about this initiative? Do share :)

Datsun redi-GO: The urban beast

Growing up with a car-crazy brother, you pick up a thing or two. Just like my brother, I love cars and don't mind stopping in the middle of the road, appreciating a beauty when I spot one.

After the crazy and intensely exciting marathon which I took part in, you all know that I am looking for a cool car to make it mine. This will be the first car I buy in my own money. 

Riding your Dad's car is fun but the treats which come with having your own car is out of this world. Mainly because then there's no fear of your Dad crushing you into pieces if you get his car damaged. :D

Choosing the right car is a tough task I must say because there are hundreds of choices available these days from so many brands. Then there are facts like pricing, features etc which you have to consider which make it more difficult. I was in this same mess until finally I spotted a pic of a green beauty which just clicked. Yes, I am talking about the brand new launch from the house of Nissan -  The Datsun redi-GO!

Why Datsun redi-GO:

  1. Sporty design: I am that typical girl who goes on the looks first. With the Datsun redi-GO, it was love at first sight. I happened to spot this eyecandy online on a banner which read " Introducing the Datsun redi-GO, booking open" and I couldn't help but dote at the stunning green beauty. I don't want my car to be of a common colour like black, silver or white which millions of people own. I want it to be a unique colour and the Datsun redi-GO comes in that unique shade of green. They have also launched it the red and other colours but I like the green one better. It has the Yukan design which is compact and sleek with a sporty attitude to it. It has got a premium appeal to it which makes it stand out.
  2. DATSUN PRO-SAFE 7:  Safety while driving is a top priority, especially when you are not so experienced when it comes to driving and of course - if you are riding the unpredictable Bangalore roads! The Datsun redi-Go is backed with a stunning crash protection shell and a brake with the shortest braking distance, all of which ensure a person's safety.
  3. Easy on the wallet: A bird on Twitter told me that the price of this stunning car is something around 2.4lakhs. I was really impressed and the reasonable pricing is another feature I love about this car!
I am looking forward to giving it a test ride to check on its performance before making it mine. As this car is designed specially for the urban roads, I would like to test drive it from my home to my office. :D This is the main route I'll be taking my car through in future so I would like to test it on the Bangalore roads itself! 

Riding the Bangalore roads during working hours can be one hell of a task and I am sure the Datsun redi-GO will put an end to my misery. It's compact and the perfect size to suit the roads here. It also has the 'small turning radius' which is a great boon when you are stuck up in a tight spot at a parking lot. 

Bottom line:
Fun. Freedom. Confidence. The ultimate Urban Cross - Datsun redi-GO - the capability of a crossover with the convenience of a hatchback.

Here's a short video for you all to catch a glimpse of this beauty:

Medimix Ayurvedic Intimate Hygiene Wash Review

We are a Nation that shies away from talking about personal lady problems. Not openly discussing women health, intimate hygiene and mensuration actually leads to a lot of problems and myths. 

Today I am going to talk about intimate feminine hygiene and my experience with #MedimixAyurvedicIntimateHygieneWash. The delicate vaginal area has a pH value ranging between 3.5 to 4.5. Soaps, body washes and even normal water have higher pH value than this, which leads to vaginal pH getting out of balance causing irritation, itching and dryness. It is always best to use an intimate hygiene wash to keep problems and infections at bay especially in summer and during your menstrual cycle.
Price: INR150 for 100 ml.
Availability : Easy. Can be brought online here.

While winter is all about dry skin woes summer comes with its own set of problems. In summer the tender feminine intimate area is more prone to irritation and infection all thanks to excessive sweating and at times like these Medimix Intimate Hygiene Wash came as a blessing into my world.

The Medimix Intimate Hygiene Wash has been made using the rich secrets of ancient Kerala Ayurveda using natural ingredients like: lime, rosemary, neem, sage, aloe, thyme, vetiver, bisabolol . This intimate hygiene wash also contains lactic acid which encourages the natural vaginal acidity and is SLES, Nitrosaminen, soap and Parabean free .
Medimix Intimate Hygiene Wash is packaged in a transparent plastic bottle with a press button cap which is easy to travel around with. I just take a little of this clear and gel like intimate wash on my palms add some water to lather and apply on my intimate area. It foams decently, rinses of easily and has a mild pleasant herbal citrus kind of fragrance behind. I have used this intimate wash for about 4 weeks now and I find its chemical free pH balanced formula gentle and ideal for everyday intimate area cleansing.


  • Nice citrus smell
  • cleanses gently
  • doesn't dry out my intimate area
  •  suitable for daily use
  • PH balanced
  • Chemical free formula
  • Has lactic acid
  • affordable
  • easily available
  • Travel friendly 


  • None.

Stilettomaniac Rating: A+

Medimix Intimate Hygiene Wash with its chemical free formula cleanses the intimate areas without causing any itching or drying making it a must have for all women.

Himalaya Herbals Gentle Exfoliating Walnut Scrub Review

Face scrubs are a must especially during summers. Due to the extensive rise in the temperature the  skin tends to sweat a lot, blocking pores and giving way to pimples and other skin allergies. This is when a good Face scrub comes in handy. They also get rid of dead skin giving your face a rejuvenating and refreshed feel.  

I made a short trip to my Aunt's place in Hyderabad last week and as I write this review, I can't help but smile at the thought of all the wonderful memories this trip gave me. Travelling is a lesson in itself and the only thing I regretted about this trip was not carrying my Himalaya Herbals walnut facial scrub with me. I developed this strange allergy where my skin gets itchy and red at the slightest of irritations which could have been avoided if I carried this scrub with me.

Today I'll be sharing my experience with the Himalaya Herbals Gentle Exfoliating Walnut scrub:

One word: Effective!

Packaging: The product comes in a white tube packaging with a tight green flip cap. The tube looks cute with the small orange details and is very travel friendly. The ingredients list, pricing and all other stuff is written on the back and front tube of the product.

Shelf Life: 3 years

Pricing: INR 70 for 50 ml

Fragrance: It smells like a walnut icecream with a medicinal and herbal hint to it. The fragrance is not overpowering.

Texture: The texture is dense and creamy which glides smoothly on a dampened face. 

How To Use: Apply in a circular motion on the face and neck. Rinse off with water.

My Experience with the Himalaya Herbals #GentleExfoliatingWalnutScrub:

I picked up this product because of its 'Herbal' tag. My skin is super sensitive and very moody which gets irritated at the slightest exposure to chemicals. Being a blogger and social media evangelist I have a tight schedule which hardly allows me to take care of my skin. My skin is young and very sensitive, that's the reason I am fond of herbal brands like Himalaya.  I have used face scrubs from a lot of brands before but was not completely satisfied with  them. I wanted something which would not irritate my skin and effectively scrub off the dead cells plus moisturize it at the same time. This face scrub is all of it put together. The best part I love about it is that it leaves my skin glowing and smooth after every application. The glow doesn't last long but the fresh and smooth feeling is there for a whole day.
I was delighted that this scrub contains apple and wheat germ oil extracts too as those are very good for skin.  It's effective and true to its claim as it completely exfoliates the skin. The walnut granules present in this scrub effectively clean the pores. Just remember not to rub it very hardly as the walnut granules are quite prominent. I don't have any black heads but I did notice that all the tiny blemishes on my face slowly disappeared. It's value for money and a great product at this price.

  • Formulated with Herbal ingredients
  • Moisturizing
  • Smoothens skin
  • Leaves a glow
  • Easily available 
  • Value for money
  • Suitable for all skin types
  • Cleanses effectively
  • Does not irritate skin 
  • Does not leave the skin dry
  • Has goodness of walnut and apples
  • Packaging is travel friendly
  • Removes oil effectively
  • Not Paraben free. 

What I love: The Himalaya Walnut face scrub can be used as a face wash too. It's a two in one face wash cum face scrub product which is a plus point when it comes to travel. 

Do I recommend it to to you all?:
Totally! It's one of the finest face scrubs out there which is both effective and friendly on the pocket. I love it for the glow smoothness it leaves on my skin.
