Being Juliet: Review of the New Period Subscription Box in India

Subscription Boxes in India
The subscription box businesses had taken wings in India. We have different subscription boxes in beauty [My Envy Box, MSM box, Enchantess, The NaturesCo and Fabbag] to Bling boxes to Lifestyle Box [Sugar Box] to Gourmet boxes. Joining the race in an altogether and a unique way of its own are the Monthly Period Subscription Boxes.

The period subscription boxes is a sure shot winner of a concept [even though it is another idea exported from the west] and had a liberty of combining Beauty with Sanity and lifestyle to ensure definite consumer. To say it in a better way- it adds "sanity" to the prevalent subscription themes of Beauty, Gourmet and Lifestyle with the unique potential it has to offer.

After all, whether we buy new makeup or not, but sanitary is an "impossible to ignore" necessity that all girls, women adhere by.

It is part of being a woman and hell no, who would not like to be pampered in those days of the month?

Being Juliet, the New Period Subscription Box in India

After seeing the concept of subscription boxes from the west getting replicated in India- like Birch box was replicated into Fabbag, Fancy into Sugarbox,  I was waiting for a national version of period boxes like Le Parcel, Period For Good, Bonjour Jolie, Cora in India. 

I am glad that the concept got replicated in/for India and we have"Being Juliet" as a period subscription box. 

About "Being Juliet" Box
It is a period subscription box that is available in 3 months, 6 months and 12 months subscription modules. The starting price is Rs 1650 [for a 3-month subscription] and goes up to Rs 6600 [for an annual subscription]. You can read more about them on their website- Being Juliet

It promises to send you, your monthly supplies at least 5 days prior to your menstrual cycle. 

The contents of the box: The supplies include- Sanitary like Pads/ Digital Tampoons/ panty liners + Gifts.

What's Inside My Being Juliet, September Subscription Box

Before I talk about the contents, let me tell you how it works. The box like I mentioned above is divided into 2 parts- Sanitary wear and Gifts. The former can be customised depending on your preferences and available options on their website. The latter is opinion oriented, based on a small questionnaire that comes in the mail once you have subscribed to the box.

You can select up to 20 pieces of sanitary essentials depending on your preference, followed by your period dates/duration details. At this point, they will determine the date for the arrival of your first box. In the 3rd and final step, you need to select your subscription duration and checkout for payment.

Here are the contents of my Being Juliet Subscription box

1) Sanitary Essentials: Being a true Whisper survivor, I ordered the essentials from them plus some panty liners just to ascertain the quality of the offering/ products. I have deliberately selected one pad from good Carefree Normal to check if the design remains same or had been changed over years. The design was same old, fresh and soft. However, it came without a belt. So if you still use Carefree, you must know what not to expect.

It was a personalised selection and it came in the mint fresh packaging.

2) Pain Reliever of the Month
a) A small bottle filled with Ajwain [carrom seed]
b) A Sachet of the Herbal Tea from "The Kettlery"

The concept wise it is a good thought. However, I have my own supplies of ajwain so I was unsure of the usage but that bottle makes it easy to carry option while travelling. 

The tea looks good and the brewing technique is mentioned in detail in the letter that came along with. Good concept.

3) Beauty Essential
a) Mitti Se, Powdered Shampoo and conditioner 
b) Evoke Eau De Parfum Ampule

The shampoo and conditioner came in a single sample size bottle that will last you for one head bath ritual. The good part is- it is a paraben and sulphate free product and had all the ingredients listed on the label.

The perfume ampule is another good gesture. It has deep notes to it and I am gonna use it on my pillows before bedtime or for post-bath rituals.

4) Mood lifters
a) A beautiful Japanese Folding hand fan
b) Hokey pokey ice cream voucher

I totally loved the fan. However, I am not a very ice cream person so the voucher is not useful for me. I would have, instead loved a hair spa or body massage spa voucher ;)

I liked the concept overall and the execution was neat, fresh and lifestyle friendly. The subscription process is pretty simple and the follow-up mechanism is good too. The moment you place your subscription [pre-paid] or COD, you get a mail within 24-32 hours from their team regarding confirmation and gift selection process.

The box offers the customizable solution and has quality products. 

What I Did not like
Even though the website recorded my menstrual cycle details, the box was delivered almost 5 days post my schedule instead of the 5 days prior delivery commitment. You can blame their courier service- Blue dart for the inefficiency. 

I was outside for work when I received a call regarding the delivery and in spite of my multiple insistence to give to my friend in the same building, they refused by promising to come next day at the mutually agreed time. In spite of repeated calls they did not show up for almost 7 days plus quoting absenteeism as the reason. It was aaargh! You cannot skip delivering a customer courier just cause your employee is on leave. God forbid if the employee leaves the organisation, the courier may not get delivered at all. I believe the Being Juliet team need to check and fix this with their delivery partners like Blue Dart or First flight that are infamous for their irresponsible delivery. 

Haute Kutir Verdict: Overall, Being Juliet is an interesting concept and makes for a good subscription. The box has all elements to lift your mood up and It is a must try box. It may not have theme introductory options like HelloFlo or high-end Tamboon box like Cora but it is more like [inspired] Bonjour Jolie

So go ahead and try this box. Let me know your experience here.

Looking for a Shapewear for a Saree? Try Zivame

Love wearing sari but hate that clumsy petticoat?

Found that sexy gown you have always looked for but finding it too sheer to dress?

Want to showcase your Hourglass figure wearing a sari?

I too have undergone the same dilemma over time and again and no matter how much I love wearing a sari, I have not come to terms yet with that traditional petticoat that is mandatory to be worn under a sari. I have got so pissed that I even tried wearing a sari over my denim. Yes, you read it right. I have actually worn a sari over my Levis so that I can have free movement while walking, climbing car seats and stairs. However, that ain't any practical or long-term solution to our petty petticoat woes.

Sari and evolution
Its is interesting to see the way sari has evolved or being evolved over the period of time. The whole 9 yards have got a different meaning with custom made, semi-stitched or full stitched sari. As the time changed, the sari changed and even the fabric of the petticoat changed but the design. The design is still a round shape stitched long skirt with a big string to tie at waist. The blouse moved from backless to noodle straps to corsets, but the petticoat remained the dark horse and in fact, one of the most neglected partners of a saree.

And please fish-cut petticoat is not an innovation but a duckling nightmare and unless you are ready to hop, skip and jump in your saree, do not go for one.

I was having this petticoat nightmare and apparently like all the good old telepathy works, there came Zivame with their revolutionary new shapewear!

Introducing Zivame Saree Shapewear

Zivame- India’s leading women’s lingerie and E-commerce brand apparently heard our Petticoat woes. They have recently introduced a one-of-a-kind revolutionary product in the Shapewear category- "Saree Shapewear"

Here's how it looks like-


This might look like a regular fish cut skirt to you. So here are few features that will help you visualise and understand better-

Zivame Saree Shapewear aims to provide you-

- Broad and soft waistband for hassle free/ string free saree tucking
- Aims to Shapes and tones thighs and legs 
- Compression panels around buttocks, shapes hips and love handles with its tube to A -line cut 
- Mermaid fit by toning down the length
- Flexibility to be worn under sarees, fitted gowns and long skirts

The product is priced at Rs 1495/- and comes in 5 different colours- Black, White, Red, Beige and Blue.

It is not a one size fits all product but it comes in different sizes from Small, Medium, Large, XL to XXL, to suit different body types. Here's a quick size guide-

The Multi purpose shapewear #Fashion #MustBuy

I have selected one in Black colour and going to team it with my long satin night kurta or any of my saree in a dark colour. It is very easy to slip on and rests your predicament of tying a normal petticoat using that painful drawstring that leaves a mark in your tummy.  The long slit at the bottom of the shapewear facilitates your movements and gives you enough leg space or comfort even while you are driving or planning to sit on the floor. The fabric is soft and lightweight. You can wash it at home [preferrably handwash] and avoid ironing or bleaching. 

You can also wear it underneath your night/ day gown [understanding the dressing pattern by different classes in India] or you can easily double it for your sari in the day and evening gown. 

Do remember it is just a fashionable shapewear that enhances your existing shape, and not any alternative to exercising or slimming solution. 

So, what are you waiting for? Give the new Saree Shape wear by Zivame a hearty try. Who knows if it becomes another staple or #MustHave in your wardrobe. 

Unboxing & Review of My Envy Subscription Box September 2016

I had a long day at work discussing content, media strategy etc on unveiling a new song featuring Sunny Leone for my client's film. I was half dead when I reached home and was greeted by a packet that courier guy delivered in the noon. Envisaging that it could be the latest subscription box from My Envy Box, I could not resist the temptation to open and check the same.

The box was a sheer delight and seeing its creative theme outlay, made me happy and charged. The theme for this month's box was travel/ wanderlust. The box came designed in an attractive travel suitcase print. The box looked irresistibly good and I without any further ado, I opened it to check the content inside.

What: My Envy Box
Type: Beauty Subscription Box
Theme: Travel
MRP: Rs 850/-
Month: September 2016

Video review: My YouTube Channel

What's Inside My Envy Box- Unboxing

Here is a list of products that I received and my opinion about each of them-

1)  C.A.L Detail Me Mascara: Rs. 450 for 12ml
It is a full sized product that comes with a flat brush. I tried it twice including while shooting my YouTube Video and loved the impact. It gave an instant lift to my eyelashes, almost akin to my Inglot Mascara. I liked this product.

2) C.A.L Muah Collection Lip Gloss: Rs 450 for 10ml
This is another full-size product and the shade that I received is Stauy S28. It is a very soft, mild, bubble gum pink kind of colour. It has a doe-feet brush applicator that is easy to use but can get tricky while applying the shade. The lip gloss, however, is smooth, soft and creamy. I have swatched this shade in  my video, you can check here.

I liked this lipgloss and feel that it will be best suited for people with naturally fair complexion. If you have wheatish complexion and you like this colour, you can try this with a makeup base or as a gloss over your pink lipstick. The lipgloss comes in 4 other shades too and may differ from box to box.

3) Ma Earth Botanicals-Rose Facial Scrub: 40g Deluxe Sample for Rs 275
Rose is my one of my favourite fragrance and my first choice for all beauty products that I pick. I have never tried this brand excited to try this Rose scrub that smells heavenly. The scrub is in powder form with heavy granules. The sample should last me 3-4 scrub rituals. So, I look forward to trying this one soon.

4) Kronokare City Detox Face Wash: 30ml deluxe sample for Rs 125

Though I do not like receiving face wash in my beauty boxes, the description of this was quite interesting. The product claims to cleanse the skin off the chaos that city leaves on your face i.e. pollution. Now that is a very fancy description and having used the same brand's ginger moisturiser in the past, I have high hopes and will sure try this one too.

The best part is it is free from Paraben, sulphate etc

5) Dermalogica Oil Free Matte sachet: Rs 3825 for 50ml
I do not use sunscreen, so this product does not interest me. The sachet is too small and I wonder if it will be sufficient enough to conduct allergy test.

6) TRUUTH Beauty Formula Tablets: Rs 400 for 30 pills
I was surprised to receive this product. It is a nutritional/ Biotin supplement and contains Biotin that claims to improve your skin, nails and hair in no time. The description sounds good but I am unsure of trying this without prior consultation from my doctor or any dermatologist as it is not a vegan product and contains horsetail- a herbaceous perennial plant .

What I liked
1) Overall packaging was attractive, artistic and thoughtful. I may retain the box for personal storage or gifting purposes.
2) Value for Money: The box MRP is Rs 850 but the Collective MRP of products inside comes around Rs 1750.
3) Product Range: I liked the C.A.L products i.e. the lipgloss and the Mascara. the Mascara is , in fact, better than one from the Maybelline that I am currently using. The rose scrub and Kronocare face wash made a good combo too.

What I did not like
The brand packaging for both the C.A.L. products looked rusted and old to me. It came in a golden box with rusted imprints that are often found in old and damaged goods. I looked for expiry details and while it suggested use up to December 2019, I am little sceptical about the brand packaging. The brand could have done away with Dermalogica small sachet as it barely makes any difference.

You may also like to check their jewellery box designed by Simran Chabra this month. I totally loved the pieces as illustrated in the picture and contemplating to order one for myself. If you are interested, you can also avail the discount code- SIMJB10 to avail 10% discount on MRP Rs 2500 making it Rs 2205 net.

Haute Kutir Verdict: Overall, I liked this box. It has been beautifully envisaged, designed and packed. With Durga Pooja 2016 coming soon, a lot of people will be planning their annual travel and this travel edition may interest them. 

If you like this box, go for it as it is value for money with 3 full sized products. The choice of brands is wide and interesting. 

Definitely Recommended!

Well, that was about the products in My Envy Box. How about yours?

Top iOS Supported WaterMarks Apps For Your Photos #MacBookProject

A picture speaks 1000 words

Pictures, blogging and social media have become an inseparable trio. Often, pictures may not appear as we perceived them while clicking, or there will be some basic edits like adding your copyright stamps.

Given the amazing photo editing features on some of these social media apps like Instagram and Twitter these days, additional editing has almost become obsolete to me. I may not edit any picture for my blog but given the rise in plagiarism, it is crucial to add a watermark on pictures before sharing them online/ in person. Off course, I am done with free service and am sure, you too will echo the sentiments. If not, check my post on- WHY YOU SHOULD WATERMARK YOUR PICTURES

Adding Watermark to your pictures
In my previous post,  we reiterated the importance of adding a watermark in our pictures/photos/images. Time to harp a little more on that subject and as promised, check out some popular apps to add watermark to your pictures.

Constraints while adding watermark
There must be 100s of photo editing apps that are available online, on iOS and Android stores. A lot of times it becomes so difficult to find out a right app for your photography needs, convenience and budgets. I find editing a tedious job and hence always emphasise on capturing a "first-time correct" picture. However, adding watermark becomes a tedious task especially when you have a large number of pictures to be added.  

Recently, when I lost all my pictures, documents, personalised watermark etc when my laptop crashed, I lost heart to recapture/ create them again. Thank God for Google Photos that I could recover some of my original/ unedited pictures and started things fresh on my new device i.e. iOS powered Macbook. Switching from a veteran friend Windows to new found love iOS wasn't easy, and working with pictures was even more confusing for a tech savvy person like me. In spite of having used MacBook Air earlier, am still discovering and learning new things every day, painstakingly. 
solely based on my personal experience using some of them.

So, in this post, we shall quickly highlight Top 5 watermark Apps based on the following criteria-

a) iOS or MacBook Centric
b) Single V/s Bulk Uploads Compatibility
c) Solely based on my personal experiences
d) Focus on Visible Watermarks rather than invisible watermarks

Top Five Apps to add Watermark on your pictures

1) MacBook Photo Preview

It is a free, inbuilt tool that is available with pictures preview. You can access this using "Annotate" from the"tools". Open the image by right clicking [or whatever command you have added for it] the image from finders. You can add watermark by using text, basic shapes, speech bubble, Loupe, mask and even a signature using camera or trackpad-

The app is free, simple and good for adding for adding multiple watermarks on a single photo. However, it doesn't support bulk add and tedious to work with pictures saved in the MacBook Photos. It is a basic app and works best for text watermark, speech bubbles and adding signatures. You can also edit your picture in preview, unlike other watermark apps.

2) Impression 2
If I am not mistaken, this app is only iOS-centric and compatible with iOS 8.0 or later. This is free and simple to download. Before trying this app I tried other apps like visual watermark extra and most of them were unimpressive for me.

The beauty of this app is that it does support text/ picture watermark too and good for single as well bulk watermark tasks. Download the app from bluecrowbar open and drag the pictures from your MacBook. 

You can check the layout from the image below

It is quite a simple app that also allows you to create a "preset" wherein you can create and use a standard watermark for all the images, present and future. 

You can export the pictures to iPhoto, aperture or any folder in your notebook. This supports JPEG, PNG and TIFF formats too.

However, the limitation is that you cannot customise different watermarks at different pictures for bulk upload. Nor you can edit your pictures like MacBook Photo Preview. 
Also, when you upload a file image/logo, it becomes blurred post export.

One good thing is that this is a free app, unlike iWaterMark that leaves its own watermark unless you buy the premium service.

3) Photo Bulk
Another batch processor for Mac but it is a paid feature. You can download the free version but it will allow only one image at a time. Yoy can use text, image, date stamp and even a script for the watermark in Photo Bulk. Unlike Impression 2, it processes the image watermark clear and up to the opacity level as selected by you.

Another beautiful thing about this app is that helps in resizing your image, optimise and compress too. You can also change the file name using this app at one go. You can buy the personal license as well team license [for 5 Mac]

4) iWaterMark
This is one of the most common available tool for both iOS and Android platform. You can sue this on your notebook as well smartphone as well. It is a paid app and comes with exhaustive features. 

However, you can use a free version too but that will add its own brand watermark in your picture. You can learn more about its features here

I have tried the free version but uninstalled it for obvious reasons.

5) Microsoft Powerpoint
Believe it or not, this is my most favourite tool for picture editing, adding watermark or designing a layout or thumbnail. It is simple to use and does not require any internet connection to use. When I lost my data on windows to encryptions, I lost my ppt files wherein I have created batches of personal layout and watermark designs too.

You can make your own watermark using "insert" feature in .ppt and "apply all" in all slides. MS PPT also helped me to crop/ do the minor edit on my pictures and I am planning to get one installed in my MacBook soon enough. 

The best thing is- this is a part of mandatory MS package and is available on almost all systems. 

There are other ways to add watermark like - Photoshop [more popular], Picassa [retired to Google Photos], UMark amongst others. So select from the above-listed apps and suit yourself :)

If you know of any other app that belongs to this category and is good too, do care to let us know at

New Video On Sugar Box Fashion Forward Edition: Unboxing & Review

The month of August was the onset of festivity, gifts and a month full of pamperings and shopping. I not just bought myself loads of clothes, New MacBook Air, Beauty & Lifestyle Products or even gifting an impromptu 3 days travel getaway to Chandigarh, I also indulged in trying some new subscription boxes for self. Teej and Rakhi shopping were the biggest excuses and I do not wonder why my bank balance is running in a diminishing graph! And my family thinks that July was the Overdraft.

We will talk about my finances at some other [read appropriate] time. Time is now to tell you about my new buy- SugarBox.

What is Sugarbox
Sugarbox is a theme-based monthly subscription box. They have a new theme every month wherein they will send a pre-defined, standard subscription box containing 4-5 beauty, fashion, Gourmet and lifestyle accessories. The cost of a box varies from theme to theme and time to time. The regular subscription boxes cost around Rs 1500 i.e. if you book it once the theme is revealed. It later changes into Rs 1900 once the shipping starts.

To know more about Sugarbox, do check their website.

Sugar Box Fashion Forward Edition
The theme for August Sugar box was- Fashion Forward. 

Though I ordered and received my box by 16th of the month and shot my video by 20th of the month, I couldn't manage to edit and upload the video until today. I was actually unhappy with my video and given the time and technical constraint [in-laws visiting, another impromptu trip to Dahanu, tedious editing, still figuring new video editing tool etc], I planned to re-shoot the vlog [which thankfully didn't work out]. Hence, after a strict Nike pledge [just do It] that I won't step unless I finish the editing and upload, I did it! I told myself that if I do not finish this by today, I will give my maid one-day additional holiday and do the dishes by myself, and that worked. Phew!

Better late than never, and better honest than being a false crowd pleaser, am up with my new #YouTubeVideo on my #YouTube channel.

Here we go-

I always try to keep my blog/work technically sound but in case, if for some technical reason you are not able to watch the video above, do check it on my +YouTube India channel at- Link

What Came Inside my SugarBox Fashion Forward Subscription box

Though I have entailed all the products on my video, once again here is the list of products that I received v/s my candid opinion on each of them-

1) White Faux Leather Backpack
I loved this bag and probably the reason I ordered this bag. Though the bag's exterior quality is not great, the product is mint fresh and looks cute. I have started using it including carrying it to Oriflame Novage launch in August. A big Yay!

2) Pony & Bear Keychain
Absolutely loved the design, colour and everything. It was truly a "delight" in the box!

3) Pink Pie Candies
Not fond of candies. So it is Nay for me.

4) Seduction set of 3 mini lipsticks
Loved the mini sizes, the pink shade looks amazing. I thought of doing swatches here but now am thinking about doing an independent post of them. What say?

5) Handmade Jewellery lacy Choker
The black lacy number looks good except for the quirky red kiss pendant that I am gonna remove and use. It is a Yay! 

6) Fashion Tshirt
It is a black colour mid length number with boat neck and "strap in sleeves" shoulder.  Check the video for the look. The Tshirt's print - Stressed, depressed but Well Dressed looks nice. However, the fabric is quite cheap in quality and could have been better. Though am glad that they chose to send a T-shirt over done to death scarf in this bag. 

7) Plastic Sipper
Though I could not stitch its relevance to fashion, the mug is an interesting piece of travel accessory that comes with an option to change the design by merely changing the cover paper. Good for carrying water, cold coffee or any other cold beverages as I do not advocate carrying a hot drink in a plastic, uncertified sipper. 

8) Quirky Pins
They are cute accessories and I will try wearing them as brooch on my casual outfits

Haute Kutir Verdict: The overall package was more of a street, casual and chic than being "Fashion-Fashion Forward". However, the trend forward is speculated to be more chic and bohemian and, if that happens, this fits the bill 7/10

Though I liked the products inside, I feel it could have been little sassier, more haute and could have rings, brooches, earring, eyewear than the mug. Nevertheless, the box was good overall and I do not regret buying it. My clear favourites are- the bag, the choker, the keychain, the pins, the lipstick..oh my God, that makes almost all the products :)

Do I recommend buying this Edition? Yes

Will I buy them again? Yes, why not?

VFM/ Value for Money ? At Rs 1500 it indeed is. However quality could have been better. Although, I do not understand the logic of escalating the price to Rs 1900 from 1500 post the shipping starts. If the products grab your attention, you may skip that too.

Hope you liked my post and video. Do subscribe to me on YouTube, I do video every Wednesday/ Thursday.
