The books I received in @thelastleafbox. 4 books 😍😍 what more can I ask for 💕
Thank you Raj @indian.bibliophile for introducing a desi box to us 😊 It was my first ever book box and I am really happy.
Now about the books:
Written in tears by Arupa Pantangia Kalita is ab book based on the disturbing history of aggression and hate which plagued Assam for decades.
Twilight in Delhi by Ahmed Ali is about the city in the early 20th century. A lyrical lovingly etched portrait of time.
The Flag is a photography book which was so apt for the month of August. It has beautiful photographs showing the true essence of India
Following my paint brush is the story of Dulari devi, a domestic helper who went on to become an artist in the Mithila style of folk painting from Bihar. The sketches in the book are wonderful and a treat to the eyes.
Old School Kinam Oil by Feel Oud. QiNam/Kinam/Kannam/Kyara is a special type of agarwood which is highly valued, aromatic wood used in incense ceremonies followed by Kodo masters in Japan🏺. They use its incense for spiritual purposes. It is extremely aged agarwood which has become dense in fragrant resins with time (we are talking hundreds of years). Its extremely rare to find (usually from Vietnam) and fetches prices upto 600USD or more for 1gram. Kyara is burnt on very low heat and its vapours inhaled. Its aroma is described as bittersweet green piercing foresty and has a mindnumbing effect. It helps in focussing of mind and spiritual upliftment for meditation.
So what we have here is a very interesting concept from the Mad Scientist of the Oud World, Russian Adam. He has tried to recreate the aroma of the same by codistilling aged Indian and Burmese Agarwood. I will discuss the details of each in a video review. As of now, the oil begins with a beautiful mentholic green aroma wrapped in the intense woody incense of Burmese wood. I keep catching the soft incense whiffs of agarwood burning on low heat. Its mystifying and mindboggling. A fragrance with psychoactive properties at a very humble price 😇
Hi precious friends! 🙋🏼 Today I'm what's known as a "stocker". 😳😬 Tracking has it that today I'm receiving a huge nail mail group buy purchase. 📦📭😆 Bad part is, mail delivery here is late afternoon. 🌄😫 Ganna be a lonnnng day! ⏳ In the meantime.....review 3/8 from @bornprettystore is up next. And what a stunner it is! 💙 This is 1/5 shades in the Metallic Nail Lacquer Mirror collection, Icy Castle-B504, item 39763. The best way I can think of to describe this is "WOWZA"! I have to admit that metallic polish and I don't get along very well but this metallic polish was a dream to use. 😲 Before applying, it's important to have a smooth nail finish as described in the instructions I read then use a UV base coat. But I applied 2 coats of a regular base polish and that worked for me. 👍🏻 The thought of buffing my nails doesn't boyd well with me. 😐Make sure base coat is completely dry as when polishing normal. Here I have two coats of Icy Castle. It will apply streaky looking at first but as you can see, once it drys, it's smooth and gorgeous. 😱 Slide 🔙 and you will see this gorgeous polish up close. I then applied Fast Drying Top Coat by @ec_nailpolish (30% off all products w/code "butterfly"). I give this Icy Castle, Metallic Nail Lacquer Mirror, a top 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I absolutely love it! 💙 It's on sale for $3.99 ea, reg. $6.99. Code "DFGK31" gets you 10% off reg. priced items at BornPrettyStore.com. Thank you Vivian for sending me this awesome polish to review. 😘 💙💅🏻💙 Hope your day is going well friends! 💕💕💕
