November Favorites!!

Favorites post is one of my "favorites" to do! :) which reminds me..Had so much fun last night on the #bbloggers chat on Twitter that takes place every Sunday at 8pm GMT, this was one of the topics discussed, "your favorite posts that you like to read /write"! 
So November, being my birth month is dear to me <3 some of the things I used this month and enjoyed doing so are:

1. My Red Symbolic Scented Candle 
I got this from a shop in Zamzama Dha, I can't recall the name of the shop but its in the lane that has Ayanis shoes I guess :p It's Pakistan Cottage Industries or something, and they have such exquisite candles I couldn't stop ohh aahing for a long time! 
I got this for PKR 550 and it smells so heavenly, my drawing room smelled divine when I put it there for a few weeks! This has a symbol in black engraved on it most probably chinese [not sure, would love it if somebody can enlighten me though x] and this was available in other shapes and sizes too! 

2. Victoria Secret Body Mist in Luscious Kisses
Really sweet smelling, a typical Victoria Secret scent, if you've used one you'd know, it's all girly girly. Available in  a range of different scents. I got this as a gift from my sister<3 from Dubai. I love it because it has a good amount of product that lasts for a long time, the bottle is hard plastic and hence break-proof!

3. Boots Acacia & Jojoba Intensive Hair Treatment
As you can see I'm running out of it already, the trick with this is to use a considerable amount after you shampoo your hair and let it stay for 5 minutes at least. My hair turned out extra smooth and silky after treating with this. Has a fresh, clean scent as well. I got this for PKR 475 from Imtiaz II super market.

4. St.Ives Timeless Skin Collagen Elastin Facial Moisturizer
I got this for PKR 480 and it's super reasonable for the amount of product you get in this. I love this moisturizer, I apply it religiously every night, it makes my skin super smooth to the touch, I love using it on my hands too :p it says it reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and I like that about it even though it's a bit early for me to start worrying about that lol 

5. Sliders Lipbalm in Raspberry
I make sure to grab some lip balms, lip butters and chapsticks whenever I come across any interesting ones while shopping. My recent buys are the Sliders balm that I purchased from Naheed Super store for PKR 95. 

As the name implies the lid slides off to expose the balm inside, I got a raspberry and a cherry one. Love the scent and I love it for it's tastelessness!

6. BeautyUk Nail Polish
A beautiful purple color, I found it prefect for fall/winter, would share a swatch of it soon, it's number 64, hate that it doesn't have a name, a gorgeous color like this should have a name, no?

7. Oral-B Essential Dental Floss[Minty/Menthol]
I wasn't much of a dental floss person until recently, I tried this one as my first and it works great, I use it especially on my lower teeth [they're a bit crowded] and it's really useful for squeezing into seemingly minute crevices and if used daily helps removes brown stains too!

Tell me what you think?


  1. Great picks!! I am very tempted by the Boots Acacia & Jojoba Hair Treatment and St.Ives Timeless Skin Facial Moisturizer. I have to try them now! :) The candle looks HOT! ^^
