Today after a long day at work I reached home to see an amazing surprise waiting for me at home. My first Vellvette box!!  I was suddenly not feeling tired..what else does amakeup freak need J

September was their first anniversary month and so they added a nice pink and white polka dot pouch, which is really cute.

The Vellvette box/bag had 4 products in total, which I still have to try and so the detailed reviews will follow.

– Coconut Crème Body Wash by ‘The Nature’s co.’ (Full size prize (250ml) – Rs. 875) –  – I tried a little on my arms, it’s very creamy, I did not need a moisturizer after using it (I have a dry skin on my arms and legs) and so it felt nice. I’m not sure how will it be after 1 or 2 uses.

–  Eye Shadow Palette – Naked by ‘beauty uk’ ((Full size prize – Rs. 600) – I’m a big fan of naked eye colors, also because that’s the most used palette.  I tried a little swatch and it feels much pigmented and at the same time it’s somewhere between a powder and cream. Till I use it on my eyelids I will not know how the colors stay on the lids. I have a problem where my eye shadows crease within a few hours, especially powder once.

– Sally Hansen – Miracle Cure for severe problem nails (Full size prize (13.5ml) – Rs. 675)  – I looked at the product and thought, how did they read my mind! Recently I have had an issue with brittle nails and while browsing the internet came across this product and was almost about to order. I will only know only after a few uses.

Yummy Pasta Vegetable Soup

Veg Pasta SoupPast few weeks have been really hectic at work and after a long day at work you want something comforting. For me there is nothing as comforting as a nice hot soup. After one of these hectic day I made a pasta soup (wanted to make something else, ended up making a soupJ ). I posted the picture of the soup on facebook and got a lot of questions on the recipe, so thought it will be a good idea to share the recipe. Here it goes:

Ingredients:

1 large finely chopped onion

4-5 garlic cloves

2 spoon Oil

1 small cube of butter

1 cup Pasta (any is fine)

1 cup finely chopped beans

1 cup finely chopped carrots

1 cup finely chopped bell peppers (I mixed all 3 colors)

2 spoon full of chilli sauce and tomato sauce

1 soup cube

Salt and pepper to taste

2 to 3 Table spoons of corn flour

1.5 liters of water

Directions:

– In a pan put some oil and butter(butter doesn’t burn when put with oil)

– Chop garlic and put it in the pan

– Sauté onions till transparent

– Add pasta and all chopped vegetables

-Add the soup cube and 1.5 liter of water

– Let it boil till pasta is cooked

– Take 2 table spoon corn flour and add this mix to the soup (this will thicken the soup, in case you need the soup to be more thick please add a little more corn flour)

– Add salt and pepper to taste

– Add chilli sauce and tomato sauce

– Give it one boil and it’s done J

It’s really healthy and taste’s amazing!!
