I was a little bored with writing on beauty and fashion related topics and thought of exploring the techzone. Don’t get me wrong! I am an absolute “Beautyholic”. But technology attracts me especially if there is something latest in the market or a new invention. I am very keen on discovering new gadgets and products. So I believe the discovery and experiments not only limits to beauty and fashion but technology as well. Also I feel beauty and technology goes hand in hand. We bloggers need to be up-to- date with any new application, product or platform that comes in the market. Well all done and said, today I am reviewing this boom box speaker by a UK based company called Thumbs Up. I got this as a gift on my last birthday. Since then I have been in love with this every given day. What is the difference between a boom box speaker and a Bluetooth speaker? Read on to know further…
Price: – It was a gift, but I saw these on Amazon.in for approx. Rs. 2000
This boom box speaker doesn’t have any Bluetooth. All you have to do is to place your phone (Android or iPhone) and it will simply amplify with your phone’s music playlist. Cool, Aint it? Also you can listen to music by connecting this with your laptop using a USB Data cable. I know you can buy a Bluetooth speaker from a JBL, Beats or something if you have an android phone. What about people who have an iPhone? Well, a major chunk of the crowd uses Apple products. This product is great for iPhone users. It has a matte black surface which can be cleaned easily. This may look too big, but it’s not that huge-looking. The music is loud, the output is amazing, great for indoor parties or outdoor trips. I can go days without charging this boom box speaker and the battery doesn’t seem to die. I can guarantee that it will lasts atleast 2-3days without charging the battery. It comes with a small white usb cable charger. I lost mine so I charge it with my powerbank charger and it works perfectly well.
So far all my friends loved it and wanted to know where I got this from? So it intrigued me to review on this portable speaker. This is a great investment for all your chilling scenes! 😉 The only drawback with this would be that it doesn’t come with a USB cable charging. Also there is no warranty which I got with this. Its been more than 6 months and it never gave any issues. So if you are an iPhone user and thinking of buying a portable speaker. Try this! If you are an Android user it will work equally well with your phone. Hope you like my review! Let me know your two cents! 🙂
With the rising temperature in Mumbai, it has become extremely difficult to apply even a bbcream in this weather. I like my face matte and dry during summers. I totally avoid foundations even the lighter versions for daily wear. Maybelline has been kind enough to send out this summer essential kit. This makes life so much easier when you are absolutely clueless on what kind of make up do you want or don’t want on your face. I pretty much skip heavy loaded foundations and opt for a sunscreen, a matte compact, a kajal and a light lip gloss or lip balm for my daily/office wear. The Maybelline summer essential kit covers the Maybelline White Superfresh Compact, the colossal black kajal and the Baby lips color lip balm in Berry Crush.
This came in a very cute golden bling pouch. Some girls might hate blingy stuff but this is not like those jazzy heavy duty blings. It looks quite classy and chic enough to carry for evening looks. Also this bag is too good, quality wise and spacious too. It also makes a great make up pouch.
Maybelline White Super fresh compact –
I have done a detailed review on this compact here. I love how this mattifies my face and suck in the extra oil. It makes me look young, fresh and bright. Of course I need to do touch up in between but I love how a touch of this makes me look oh-so-fresh. It comes with a cute mirror and fancy white packaging. It comes with UV protection which is an absolute must for me in any compact powder. And the best part is the pricing of this compact, just Rs. 150 for this fabulous product. So pocket friendly and effective. I am sure this would be an absolute hit amongst college goers.
Maybelline Colossal Kajal –
I know many of you might have already tried and tested this kajal. There is a huge fan following for this particular kajal. I absolutely hate kajals/ kohl that smudges. Long back when I first bought this kajal it used to smudge a lot. I believe MNY has improved the formula of this kajal as it doesn’t smudge anymore. My eyes are super watery and no kajal stays on my waterline for a long time. This stays for 4-5 hrs on my waterline which is quite decent for Rs. 150 bucks. Also my mom absolutely loves this kajal. So thumbs up again..MNY!
Maybelline Baby Lips Berry Crush–
Now you would say.. “Are you nuts to buy a lip balm during summers?” Trust me babe.. I need a lipbalm 365 days a year. My lips are so dry and chapped that I cannot afford to wear a lipstick without applying a lipbalm. From the time baby lips have been launched here, I have been a loyal lover to Baby lips. The price is Rs. 135 for this beauty. This has been my absolute must and Berry Crush is my favourite. I was really hoping MNY doesn’t send me a lighter or transparent one. I heart the berry one as it gives a healthy flush to my lips and make my face look brighter. It keeps my lips protected, nourished and soft for a longer time adding a hint of color.
Below is a picture of me wearing the kajal, lip balm and white superfressh compact from Maybelline. Do you think I need more make up to look good? Well, I guess not! I #StaySummerfresh with my MNY summer essentials kit. What about you?
