My The Nature's Co May Beauty Wish box

Here I am back with another box opening. Even though I was more than happy with the Velvette box/ bag... now known as the Fab bag. I wanted a beauty box with more pamper/ bath products rather than makeup products.

They ship by end of the month no matter when you make the payment and shipping is not free. I tried getting free shipping by adding more products to my basket but it ended up increasing the shipping and handling charges.

I received my box on the 22nd of May. The theme for May was post holiday blues and I got my samples enclosed in a cardboard house

Whoever was in charge or securing the lid of the cinnamon bath salts... I have two words for them .... Screw You .. Would it have hurt to tightly secure the lid and put some tape on it.... it was a huge mess spilling all over the... The pathetic mess is simply not acceptable since they are just shipping form Mumbai. Another thing Nature co.... why on earth is the courier guy of your courier service partner (Shree Tirupathi courier service) trying to chat with me on whatsapp . He kept on sending inane messages till I found his name through truecaller and confronted him on whatsapp... He immediately changed his tune and said that he just wanted to see if I had received the box ... yeah right. Very disappointed with Nature co. Horrible experience.I tried contacting them on twitter but they conveniently ignored my tweets while posting their promos .Huge difference between the customer service of Fab bag and The Nature co.

Bad experience with it and based on just this one box I would not recommend it to anybody. The May post holiday blues gave me more blues. It remains to be seen after the next few boxes if I will be renewing my subscription or not.

My current perfume collection

It's been a long long time since I posted .... sorry... work and other distractions.
This is my perfume collection. Most of the items have been bought by me and the others have been gifted by friends and relatives. Just a whiff of your favorite perfume is enough to brighten your day.

 No look is complete without a spray or two (or more ) of my favorite perfume. The EDP are strong enough to last throughout the day and sometimes the smell lingers on clothes for a few days more but I usually reapply them in the afternoon solely cause my nose has become so accustomed to them that I can’t smell 
them on me in the afternoon.




I have Christian Dior, Issey Miyake, Salvatore Ferragamo, Calvin Klein, Kenzo etc in my perfume collection. Ahh… wish the same translated to my wardrobe as well.

Out of these the ones which I am on my second or third bottle are  
DKNY Red Apple and Tommy Girl
And I also plan to buy more perfumes from the body shop as am currently loving the strawberry one  and the Issey Miyake one is just divine. The staying power is not that great on the Body shop edts and edps. I also have the lily of the valley one which I had originally bought as a gift for a friend but instead gave her something else cause of the low staying power on that one. The bottle of the lily fragrance is pretty but frankly I don’t like the perfume that much.
So which are the perfumes you find yourself reaching out for more than the others.

P. S The samples that you get when you buy perfumes are great for carrying in your purse.
