I decided to pen down my monthly favorites across various categories e.g. food items, skincare, make-up products, books and even home decor stuffs. So here is a list of my January 2021 favorites.
Looms and Weaves Dry Kerala Ginger powder – I do not take sugar or any artificial sweetener in my tea. It is also little difficult to grate ginger every time I am pouring myself a cup of tea. So this dry ginger powder is a quick fix. I tried spices like cinnamon and cardamom from the this brand called looms and weaves and they were of amazing quality. So, did not hesitate to order the ginger powder from this brand. The flavor and smell feel authentic to me. It is organically grown and free from any preservatives. I bought the 50 gm jar first for just Rs. 140 and then later bought a 100 gm jar for Rs. 230 from Amazon. Sadly, the 50 gm version came in a glass jar but the 100 gm version came in a tin jar but anyway the product does its job. You can also use it for cooking or baking purposes.
Organic India Tulsi Mulethi Tea bags – My entire family loves the Organic India tea because of their health benefits. I have influenced a lot of my friends to buy them and they were pretty happy after using. The Tulsi Mulethi is a new variety that I found on Amazon. You can also get it from Fab India Stores. There are 25 tea bags inside the packet. It is particularly useful for reducing stress and to boost immunity against cough and cold. I just love the aroma and it instantly relaxes my nerves. Definitely worth a try.
Nykaa Own it like Masaba Nail Polish – I bought 2 shades from the Masaba Range of Nail paints in the shades – Savage 293 (color- leafy green) and Unfiltered 292 (color- Teal). I love both of these 2 shades which come for around Rs 199 but I got them at Rs179 for 15% discount which is a pretty good deal. The colors are bright and fun with a glossy finish.
Brown Kajal/kohl Pencil – I tried 2 brown Kohl pencils. Brown Kohls gives a softer look to the eyes as compared to black ones and I prefer to use them for my lower lash lines. So the ones I tried were Nykaa Glamoreyes Color Eye Pencil in the shade Bronze Beam and the Sugar Kohl of Honour Intense Kajal in the shade Brown Bag. The Nykaa Eye pencil comes for Rs 450 for 1.2 gms of product and the Sugar Kohl Pencil comes for Rs 249 for 0.25 gms of product. I liked both of them and will do a detailed review in a separate post.
Books – My current reads are Predictably Irrational by Dan Ariely and Calcutta Chromosome by Amitav Ghosh. Predictably Irrational is a book on behavioral Economics and has been a very enjoyable read for me so far. The Calcutta Chromosome is a fictional novel which has been very popular but I didn’t get a chance to read it earlier. I am hoping to complete both of them by next weekend and will share a review soon. I know I really hate to read a book with multiple breaks but my current schedule has been crazy and I even hardly got time to write a blog post here.
So that’s it for today! Have a nice Tuesday 🙂
