StreetStyleStore.Com Haul and Review

Hi Everyone,

 

It’s been a while since I posted here. I was a little busy coping up with my CAT preps and then had to come back to Bangalore from home (homesick already 😦 ). Anyway that was off topic. So today I’ll be posting my first ever haul on the blog and along with a review about this website called Streetstylestore.com that offers an amazing variety of footwear, bags and the newly added section for chic and sexy clothing as well.

I stumbled upon this website through an ad which I saw on Facebook I think a year back and noticed that they have some luring and interesting collection.There are different offers that are available on their website like 3 pairs for 999 INR, 2 pairs for 999INR etc and the designs are pretty cool and very different from those one come across on other websites or even in a store.

Though the first time I helped ordering 2 pairs of sandals for my best friend’s sisters at 999INR and he paid through card for it. The website says the shipping takes 7-21 days, but for our shock the sandals never arrived in the mentioned time. We even tried to find a number on their site to contact them and much to our surprise there was no contact number available. All we could do was just email them and no response from their end. After almost 1.5 months the footwear arrived and what I got to know from my friend was that they looked of a very cheap quality.

Well, so this time around a month back I visited their website and ordered 3 pairs for 999 INR and decided to choose cash-on-delivery instead of paying online to stay away from all the tension and headache which my friend had to go through. After around a month later when I almost forgot about my order my package arrived. The 3 pairs were stuffed in a cardboard box and the condition of the box didn’t look much appealing to me as well.

Lets get into this haul and I’ll also tell you what I feel about them as well!!!!

Here to staple:

The actual picture in the website looks like this

And this is how it looks in real. This one’s my favorite among all the 3 in the haul. It has a very bohemian look to it with all that tassels going on 🙂

And this what I received. I expected the straps to be rigid enough to stand straight, instead of it all over the place, falling haphazardly. 😦

What I received in the package. The sandals in the picture looked so awesome and unique, but it was a total bummer only because of the flimsy material of the strap and the soles looked very prone to easy wear and tear. Though love the color combo 😀

I really liked the unique designs of the 3 sandals but was very disappointed by the quality as the straps looked very fragile and delicate and I doubt it would last a long time if you do not take good care of it and end up getting stuck in the rain with these sandals. I have a very mixed impression about this website and when you visit their Facebook page, you will see many complaints about package not delivered to the customers and comments getting deleted from their pages if it is kind of negative for them. But I kind of liked the footwear as you shouldn’t expect a lot when you pay 300 rs for a sandal. It has to be made with materials worth that money. Except the delivery time and their lack of customer service, the only thing that draws me to their website is their unique designs and great offers.

Pros:

  • Great and unique designs
  • Amazing deals and bargains

Cons:

  • Horrible delivery time
  • Lack of product details on the website
  • No customer care number to contact

Here are a few tips to those who wish to purchase from SSS (streetstylestore.com):

  • Always opt for cash on delivery and not pay online
  • Zoom in the pictures to find out about the material of the products as there’s no product details available
  • Have a lot of patience as the package will take almost a month to reach you most of the times

I had an okayish experience with streetstylestore.com and I will definitely want to checkout their awesome collection of bags and clothing section soon. If any of my sweet readers have ever ordered their bags or clothes do share your experience with me. Also do let me know if you found this haul interesting and if you would like to purchase any of these 3 footwear. All the links have been mentioned below the pictures to directly go to their website.

 

Have an awesome weekend my lovelies!!! 🙂

 

Let’s go all “organix” with OGX!!

Hi Everyone!!!!

 

How are you all doing? Weekend is here and most of us girls love to give ourselves spa treatments at home, and the most common is taking extra care of your hair with all that “champi” (oil massage) and stuff! 🙂

So I thought telling you guys about these beautifully smelling hair care products from a very well know brand ORGANIX or OGX. I’ve been reading a lot about OGX on the blogger’s community lately and how my fellow bloggers rave about their brazilian keratin range as well as the argan oil range. I decided to finally give these products a try and ever since I’ve been hooked onto these products. So let’s not keep anymore suspense and review them!!

 

OGX ARGAN OIL of MOROCCO- Penetrating oil:

Main Ingredients: Kernel oil, Argan oil and fragrance

Claims: The Argan oil penetrates, moisturizes, renews and creates softness and strength and also protects hair from harmful styling heat and UV damage.

The cute packaging 🙂
My Experience: I have pretty long straight hair and it can really “knotty” after a shower. LOL!! This stuff does wonders to my hair and helps me remove all the knots really gently and super fast. Though I expected it to be an oil, but the consistency is “serum” like and is not at all sticky or oily. It is advised to use it on towel dried hair and it did wonders to my hair. All I needed was a little bit of the oil for my entire hair and then rubbed it between the palms and applied it from roots to top. I don’t yet know about the strength part, but it definitely gives a sheen to your hair along with a very mild fragrance to it.

Cost: INR 725 for 100 ml

Ratings: 4/5

Pros:

  • A little amount is enough for the hair
  • Not tested on animals
  • Paraben and sulfate free
  • A must product for dry and frizzy hair
  • True to its claims

Cons:

  • Costly for a 100 ml bottle
  • The fragrance can be a no-no for many

I bought this online at Purplle.com at a discounted price. You can get it on Flipkart and Amazon as well. I’ll leave all the links at the end of the post. 🙂

OGX BRAZILIAN KERATIN THERAPY -Shampoo:

Main Ingredients: Water, cocoa seed butter, keratin, coconut oil, avocado oil, citric acid etc.

Claims: The Brazilian coconut oil and keratin proteins smoothens and strengthens curly and wavy hair and provides straight and shiny tresses.

Loved the chocolaty colored packaging

My Experience:

My hair is super dry and prone to breakage as I’ve got chemical smoothening done to them and I am using a lot of oil and hair masks to combat the dryness. This shampoo has done a fabulous job to my hair by moisturizing them without weighing them down. My hair looks absolute diva-like with all that shine and luster in them. The best part is you can see and feel the effect for 2-3 days without a hair wash .My washroom smells like chocolate once I come out coz that awesome this shampoo smells. To cut a long story short, I’M IN LOVE WITH IT! 😀

Cost: INR 725 for 385 ml

Pros:

  • Easy to wash off
  • Makes hair shiny and doesn’t weigh them down
  • An absolute miracle product for dry/coarse hair

Cons:

  • A little costly

Ratings: 5/5

I can’t think of anymore bad points for this baby to be honest. Now I know why this product is so raved about everywhere and why is it always out of stock online. So my final verdict would be that this an absolutely amazing product for all those who wish to add some shine to their dry and dead hair. They have a lot of range available for different types of hair and you might want to try them. The links to the website where i got the products from is mentioned below.
