In trend: Belt bag

Lately quite a few celebrities from Priyanka Chopra to Kendall Jenner have been spotted following this trend and for a bag lover like me, I just found a reason to add something new to my bag collection.

Belt bag also known as Fanny bag/Bum bag; the name of which is derived from the style in which the bag is used; worn as a belt with a pouch around the waist.

Belt bags can be of different types like a simple sports belt bag or a classy leather belt bag.

Initially I found it difficult to find these bags in offline stores but later found them at Bigbazar store in Inorbit mall Vashi which was for INR 899/-, it was a sturdy and classy black bag but looked a little too big to be worn around the waist, so I continued my hunt for more affordable options online and came across a black belt bag which was for INR 814/- and ordered it.

I received the bag in a weeks time, talking about the quality of the bag even though it looked like a classic black bag, it wasn’t worth the price I paid, since it was delicate and prone to getting wrinkled on being folded or scratch marks from my nails on rough use of the bag.Nonetheless I love my new bag ๐Ÿ˜

So is a belt bag/fanny pack just a styling accessory? No, apart from being a fashion accessory using a belt bag has many advantages too, let us have a look at some of the benefits!

  • Keeps hands free while shopping, exercising etc
  • 2 in 1 as its a belt cum bag
  • Safer to carry than regular bags as they are tied around the waist making it difficult to steal

Outfits that go well along with a belt bag are:

A belt bag would look great with a pair of jeans and a t-shirt or a shirt dress.

My Miniso Haul

Hello everyone !! Finally I was able to make some time from my hectic schedule to just relax and do nothing and that is when I got sometime to explore new stores within the city. Miniso which is quite famous for its fancy collection of organiser boxes, wallets, makeup, kitchenware and a lot more such items has opened their store in Inorbit mall, Vashi just a few months back. The first time I visited this store, I did not like anything at all; everything looked fancy but nothing worth buying, however the second time I visited after a few months of the store being opened all of a sudden everything looked appealing to me. Miniso is a place to visit with your mum since they have a lot of utility products ranging from organisers to kitchenware and so on.

So let’s get started !!

1.Table Organiser

This a plastic box containing a set of two organisers, one is a plain open box while the other one has smaller compartments to store small jewellery pieces like earrings, rings. You can also organize your lipsticks and other small beauty & makeup products in this box
Price Rs.230/-

2. Multi-Peptide Essence Moisturizing Facial Mask

Unfortunately I could not take a picture of this face mask sheet

This facial mask sheet contains collagen which helps to make skin firm and reduce signs of aging. This was for Rs. 90/- which I personally felt was expensive being a one time use product, however if we compare it with facial mask sheets available in the market this apparently is the cheapest of all.

3. Nail polish

I can never have enough of nail colours and I really enjoying painting my nails. Even though I am ardent fan of red coloured nail polish this time I chose a nude and blue-grey colour. The name of these shades are

Nude colour nail polish – 25 Nude Red (my nail colours have something to do with Red:-P)

Blue-grey nail polish – 05 Blue Gray

The price for one nail polish is Rs.190/- however if you buy two then it is Rs.180/- each

Now let me tell you something unique about these nail colours; these are water based colours and the best part they claim is that instead of removing the nail colour using a nail polish remover you can just peel it off :-D. This is an interesting and relatively new concept for me. I will write a review on this product once I try it

4. Body & Breast Massager

I like these self care products that claim to boost blood circulation in the body and with that in mind I bought this cute set of body & breast massager. Price Rs.150 /-

5. Mirror with Jewellery stand

This elegant white coloured mirror cum jewellery stand is quite useful and a stylish way to keep jewellery organised. Price Rs.250/-

6. Medicine box

Even though it is ideally used to store medicines, I am using this to store my earrings (studs). Price Rs.90/-

7. Hair brush

This is a sturdy hair brush useful to blow dry hair and give a wavy look. Price Rs.150/-

Overall my visit to Miniso was fun, I got to see a lot of innovative & utility based products and you should at least visit the store once to see their creatively designed products !

The Body Shop Haul : Peppermint Candy Cane collection

Christmas, holidays, party time are all over now and it is time to get back to work. It just feels like there is a vacuum; all that christmassy mood is gone so quick but don’t worry The Body Shop (TBS) is here to remind us everyday with their beautiful Peppermint Candy Cane range of bath & skincare products. Also to find that most of these products were on flat 50% sale was like a cherry on the cake ๐Ÿ™‚

This year TBS had come up with two special christmas collections; one was Bon Bon and the other one was the Peppermint Candy Cane. Both these collections looked equally appealing to me however it was the Peppermint Candy Cane fragrance that pulled me like iron particles to a magnet towards it; true to its name the fragrance of the refreshing mint with the sweetness of the candy just makes me want to eat it !So today I am going to talk about my recent purchases from this particular collection of The Body Shop. All these products were bought from TBS store in Inorbit mall, Vashi.

What I truly loved about all these products that I bought were its typical Christmas theme; a combination of red & green colour with candy cane design on it and once again the fragrance.. I just cannot get over it !

So let’s get started!!

1. Peppermint Candy Cane Shower Gel

    I bought this to gift it to my friend who is huge fan of shower gels and I felt this one will surely brighten my beloved friend’s day !!

    It was priced at Rs.595 for 250 ml but I got it at flat 50% (feels like an achievement lol ๐Ÿ˜› )

    2. Peppermint Candy Cane Soap

    I am more of a soap lover than a shower gel only because it helps me bathe quickly unlike when I use a shower gel I can just go on and on with bathing. This one is a green coloured round shaped soap different from the regular TBS soaps which are rectangular bars

    It was priced at Rs.395/- for 75 grams which was definitely expensive but since this one was on sale, it was priced somewhere around Rs.199

    3. Peppermint Candy Cane Scrub

    I bought this product on being recommended by a friend, who said it was a wonderful experience using this scrub.

    The original price of this scrub was Rs. 1895/- for 250ml (Expensive for sure) but I got it for half the price on sale

    4. Peppermint Candy Cane Body Butter

    Last but not the least my favourite skincare product in winters is a body butter especially the ones from TBS since they are good in keeping the dryness away at the same time you don’t need to use a strong perfume as the fragrance of the butter lingers around you for quite sometime

    While the original price was Rs.1595/- for 200 ml, I had to pay half the price due to the on going sale

    I was never a fan of huge sales or discounts as I believed it is just a gimmick to fool the shopaholic customers into buying the products but for a change the TBS sale convinced me that all sales or discounts may not be a gimmick. It is best to make use of such sales or discounts to buy gifts for your friends & family or store them for your future use as they are generally a lot more expensive to buy.
