Canvas Print Surprise!

Hi friends! Today's post is about a recent surprise I gave my husband (okay so when I started this post it was a recent surprise but I never got down to publishing it, so well, its over 2 week now).

We have a large wall in our bedroom against which we have our TV and rest of the wall is bare.
We had also been on a few trips in India last year and hadn't developed any of the photo prints. So, when browsing for Valentine's options when I came across an online website which did custom sized canvas prints I decided to give it a try.

I went through the options available and narrowed down on a thin wrap canvas print which is basically a stretched canvas framed on a thin wooden frame. This comes in a ready to hang state which was perfect for me.

So I dug up one pic in which both of us seemed to be enjoying ourselves and placed an order for a canvas of size 30x20 inches.

The lighting in this room is not perfect to show you how it looks but here's a closeup of another canvas I got done from the same place - just to show you the quality of the print.

Review: Pantene Pro-V Oil Replacement Hair Cream

When winters started, I knew I was going to use a lot of heat on my hair. That is when I saw the advert on TV about Pantene Pro-V oil replacement cream. I finally tried it out over a few weeks and decided to share my review with you all.

The cream comes in a very easy to use soft tube. The tube is golden and looks quite nice. It has a flip top for ease of use.

Price: Rs 150  [180 mL] available online

The cream is white in color and smells like most Pantene products. It's kind of difficult to explain, somewhere with fruity/floral notes and the fragrance does linger on for some time. I personally like the fragrance but some people with a highly sensitive nose may not be able to handle it.

Bye Bye Dandruff, Hello Smooth Hair!

Hi friends! Winters and dandruff have always had a simultaneous occurrence in my life. I tend to get dandruff very easily hence I do opt for a weekly headwash with Head & Shoulders to cleanse my scalp of all buildup that actually caused dandruff.

For the past few weeks I've been regularly using the new Head & Shoulders 2-in-1 Smooth & Silky and liked it enough to share a quick review with you all.

Price: Rs 310 (360 mL) - buy online for Rs 263

The packaging is just the same as the standard Smooth & Silky shampoo. A flip top makes dispensing the right amount of product easy while in the shower.

NYX Advanced Salon Formula Nail Polish - Review and Swatches

Hi everyone! Today's post is a quick swatch post about a gorgeous polish that was lying in my stash. Every month I participate in a birthday collab where the group creates some mani for the birthday girl. This month I was supposed to recreate the mani of one of the birthday girls and I was looking for a pink polish that was bright yet a soft pink. I have a few popping pink colors but couldn't remember having this beautiful pink polish from NYX that I got a couple of years ago.

The polish doesn't have a name and is numbered as NPS 227. The pink shade is like the traditional rose pink color with hints of magenta shimmer. It sort of gives it a slight holo effect.
